The Legionnaire's Prize" and the whole "Caledonia's Captives" series is based around Hadrian, I thought this may be an awesome read for some of my fellow historical fiction enthusiasts.
Please, let me encourage you to keep up with their blog over at "Unusual Historicals". They have amazing contributors and one of them, Ms. Lisa Yarde, will be featured along side several other authors and myself in the upcoming release "HerStory" by Pagan Writer's Press. Expected to release on March 3rd.
I hope you guys enjoy the post!

Here it is ladies and gentleman! My newest release will be out in March to honor Woman's History Month. "Pick a Side" was inspired by the real lives of Lottie Moon and her sister who were spies for the South during the Civil War.
The research surrounding this piece was fairly easy, and the story literally was typed in a night. Once submitted, my edits focused on the time periods fashion. I spent over 6 hours researching the feminine dress of the era.
I came to an even greater respect for these women, especially those who were spies. A minimum of three layers covered their top and anywhere between 5 and 8 layers covered the bottom. These ladies, had yards of fabric that carried everything from secret messages, to medicine, to even small firearms. (Which of course made the dresses even heavier!)
So my homage to these brave young women and all the other women who have sacrificed for our country was to write "Pick a Side." I hope you'll enjoy it!

New Release! ~
What you thought you knew about the BIBLE…
is about to CHANGE.
What if you found out you were the granddaughter of the first woman, no not Eve, but Lilith? After 150 years Dika Edens, the oldest of 4 girls each destined to live forever finds out that very thing. She is not sure if it is a curse or a gift from the Gods. All she knows is the man that has informed her of this has way too much guilt on his shoulders regarding her and her past. Chrome is her Guardian but that does not mean he can protect her from everything. He should be the first one to know that - since he is the one telling her that she must save the world.
This book is really a great read! I'd recommend it to everyone! But don't take my word for it...
What People Are Saying About It
Main characters Dika and Chrome are amazing. As Dika who views herself as plain an ordinary in comparison to her sisters is adored by her dragon Chrome. Any woman would consider herself blessed and lucky to be described as Chrome describes Dika.
This book is action packed and now I am thoroughly disappointed that I have to wait for the next installments!" –Jeannie Christo, Goodreads reviewer

Now I know your curious, right? Check it out... here!

My heroine, Mowriyah, is a feisty, sexy woman who is strong and slightly temperamental. She was so fun to write! Her nemesis, Phaedra, happens to be the hero's ex lover. When the two of them get together, you can feel the tension in the room. And poor Septimus, our Hero, just can't catch a break.
This high adventure, ancient Rome romance is the second in the "Caledonia Captives" series. If you liked "The Legionnaire's Prize," I promise you, you'll absolutely LOVE "His Seafaring Siren"! This book, I believe, is a far better story. The love making is hot and almost right off the bat. Especially since we've already met our Hero and Heroine in book one.
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did writing it, and I'll keep you updated on release dates and cover art!
Love you guys!
