I’m delighted to announce the release of my paranormal romance Soul Fire today from Samhain.
Iron born and iron bred.
Trust not iron, it will see you dead.
Rowan Blake could really use a magic wand to keep her struggling art gallery afloat. But the faerie key she stumbles across is far from a lucky charm. It’s a magnet for danger, and by touching it she’s unwittingly put herself in the middle of a war between the forces of light and dark. And in the arms of its rightful owner, Prince Daire.
While searching for his brother, Daire finds himself trapped in the Iron World with a mere mortal woman who ignites his passion like no other. Each stolen kiss deepens their attraction and sends him spiraling closer and closer to the edge of his inherent dark desires. Desires that act as a homing beacon for the Dark Sidhe, who are intent on forcing him to fight on their side.
The longer he lingers in her arms—and in her bed—the closer his enemies get to her door. And the greater the risk that the gateway to the Faerie Realm will shift, destroying not only his power to protect her, but his very life.
Warning: Contains enchantments, danger, some very scary monsters, a trip to the dark side and hot, soul-transforming sex with an immortal prince.

Soul Fire started off life as To Regain Heaven. It was one of those stories that just flowed. It knew where it was going and I was largely along for the ride. I did have great help from all my friends on Livejournal, where the question “if lots of evil supernatural/fairy creatures were attacking your house, what would you do?” prompted some spirited debate with the merits of milk, iron filings, horseshoes and submachine guns all coming into play. Alas not everything made it into the story.
But some of it did.
So, where is all this going? Well, it being release day, I have giveaways.
Daire and his brother Aidan wear enchanted acorn pendants which act as a key, allowing them to travel between our world and theirs. I’m lucky where I live. Like Rowan, my garden backs onto a wood and overhanging our rather battered fence is an ancient oak tree. After finishing Soul Fire, I found a few of these enchanted pendants lying around, their magic largely spent now, but beautiful, nonetheless.
Over the next few days I’m going to be gathering comments here (I hope) and two winners will be selected using Random.org. The prizes are one ebook copy of Soul Fire, and one pendant. I’ll also open it to those who post about Soul Fire and the pendants on their own sites as long as they let me know.
And keep your eyes out elsewhere too. There may be some others lying around too. 🙂
