Merry Christmas! A new synopsis, just for you…

Penglai Island

Merry Christmas! I didn’t quite make it for all you Solstice celebrators, but I’m only a day late. In our house, we celebrate Christmas, which means that much baking will be done, lots of eating and drinking with family and friends, and a very hyper six year old will run rampant with excitement.

What did you get for me this year? Well, you bought my book (most of you) and that’s about the best present an author can ask for, so thank you! What did I get you? Hopefully a few hours of excitement and fun for your brainspace. But…I still feel in your debt, dear readers, so I’m also giving you the synopsis for Book Three of the Elemental Mysteries, The Force of Wind.


How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

What would you sacrifice to kill the one you hate?

Join Giovanni Vecchio and Beatrice De Novo as they travel to a hidden island on the far edge of China and seek the help of an ancient immortal court. Will they weave their way through the tangled web of centuries-old alliances and ruthless feuds to find what they’ve been looking for? Friends will be revealed, enemies will find them, and a dangerous secret will come to light.

The third book in the Elemental Mysteries series will see Giovanni and Beatrice joined by a group of unlikely allies as they explore the history and myth of ancient China. Many have been stolen, but only one holds the key.

The Force of Wind is the third book in the four-part Elemental Mysteries series. It is a paranormal mystery/romance for adult readers.


I hope you liked the synopsis! I’ll also be taking a week or so off of posting, so I’ll leave you with another peek at the playlist. This week, the song is Fear by Sarah McLachlan, from her Fumbling Toward Ecstasy album. Check her out in concert here:

Wind in time
rapes the flower trembling on the vine
nothing yields to shelter it
from above
they say temptation will destroy our love
the never ending hunger

but I fear
I have nothing to give
I have so much to lose
here in this lonely place
tangled up in our embrace
there’s nothing I’d like
better than to fall

Thanks for reading and Merry Christmas,
