Hatchlings Curse -Lord Branin Llewlyn is a dragshi, a human who can exchange bodies with a dragon. After millennia of waiting… and searching, Branin and his dragon counterpart, Llewlyn, have found their intended mates–the Lady Anastasia and her dragon soul twin, Jessian.

For the dragshi, the freedom of flight comes with a price. Now that he has found Anastasia, Branin wants more than anything in the world to find a cure for the hatchling’s curse and end the childlessness of his kind. His hopes soar when Anastasia uncovers the location of First Rising, a hidden valley with cryptic references to mating flights and dark references about the deaths of suitors.

 It will take a very long time before AEquana heals from the abuse and torture she endured growing up in those government labs. But Talon’s love is helping her forget and go forward with life.

Unfortunately, they stumble onto a multi-million dollar gem heist, and are targeted by those who think they’re easy prey. Their enemies have no idea who they’re up against when they try to take on the ex-Navy SEAL and his mermaid.

Author Bio:

Tuesday’s Title – The Detective’s Dilemma by Karen McCullough

Detectives_Dilemma_200Her fingerprints are on the gun, but Sarah swears she’s innocent.

 Title:  The Detective’s Dilemma
Author: Karen McCullough

Date of Release: November 3, 2014
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Kensington/Lyrical Press

Buy Links: Amazon   Barnes and Noble

Blurb:

Although Sarah Anne Martin admits to pulling the trigger, she swears someone forced her to kill her lover. Homicide detective Jay Christianson is skeptical, but enough ambiguous evidence exists to make her story plausible. If he gives her enough freedom, she’ll either incriminate herself or draw out the real killers. But, having been burned before, Jay doesn’t trust his own protective instincts…and his growing attraction to Sarah only complicates matters.

With desire burning between them, their relationship could ultimately be doomed since Sarah will be arrested for murder if they can’t find the real killer.

Author’s Bio:

Karen McCullough’s wide-ranging imagination makes her incapable of sticking to one genre for her storytelling. As a result, she’s the author of more than a dozen published novels and novellas, which span the mystery, fantasy, paranormal, and romantic suspense genres. A former computer programmer who made a career change into being an editor with an international trade publishing company for many years, she now runs her own web design business to support her writing habit. Awards she’s won include an Eppie Award for fantasy; three other Eppie finals; Prism, Dream Realm, Rising Star, Lories, Scarlett Letter, and Vixen Awards, and an Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future contest. Her short fiction has appeared in several anthologies and numerous small press publications in the fantasy, science fiction, and romance genres. She lives in Greensboro, NC, with her husband of many years.

Storyline – Love Forever?

One of the pieces of advice I give authors, especially those just starting out, is to keep a journal. No it is not the diary once popular among young girls. What the authors journal contains are things such as a name that says “I am xxx.” URL’s, photographs, or rough sketches of a place or time that will serve as the basis for a locale.

Storylines, notes, tidbits of thoughts fill more pages. Below is one item of interest for writers of romance.


Archaeologists with the University of Leicester uncovered remains of two skeletons holding hands believed to have been resting that way for at least 700 years.

Think of the circumstances that put them in the position. Did he die first? Or did she? Expand the thought and there is the beginnings of a story.
