On The Side

Previously published (2015). Drake Banner has been hunting demons since his seventeenth birthday. That was centuries ago. An angel intervened that fateful day and saved him, but charged Drake with hunting demons from that day forward. When there is a message on his answering machine asking for help, Drake is intrigued and needs to find out just who the sexy voice belongs to.

Darna Andress is thirty and wondering if she will ever find love. After a reading with a medium, Darna finds she’s not herself anymore. After several embarrassing incidents, she knows she needs some help. She turns to Drake Banner but finds him more interested in helping himself—to her.

A centuries-old demon is back and has found the perfect way to take Drake down. Drake thought he had everything under control until love gets in the way…and now he may have to pay the ultimate price.

 


In Harm’s Way
Harm Boland has lived on the fringe of the biker culture his whole life. Not surprising since his grandfather was one of the founding members of the Hungry Ghosts motorcycle club. Two years ago he left his love Ellie behind and went on the road. Harm is called back home when his Oma Tam passes. He has promised to honor her and perform the rituals so she won’t wander as a ‘hungry ghost’. Suddenly, Ellie is on his doorstep and Harm is elated, but it is short-lived. Harm finds the darker paths he’s traveled on have caught up to him.

When Ellie is taken as payment by the leader of Hung Jury MC, Harm vows he won’t lose the woman he loves again. Raw, the leader of the Hungry Ghosts, once said, “You can’t out-ride love, Dutch-boy.” Now, he’s riding right to it.

Skulls 3X the Man
Skulls lost his heart to Maggie three years ago, then she was murdered. Although he got the guy, Skulls didn’t know his real identity. Maggie’s spirit has lingered because he can’t let go.

When the foul-mouthed Lexi walks into The Iron Horse, Skulls falls hard for her, not realizing she’s been sent to kill him. Lexi’s brother Dante is the leader of Hell’s Half-Hour MC and wants revenge for his younger brother’s death. Dante is holding Lexi’s son Luke to make her go after Skulls and do his dirty work for him.

When Lexi fails, Skulls and Raw, the leader of the Hungry Ghosts, realize a bigger plan is unfolding. Dante wants to acquire Skulls and his particular skill set into his MC and is using Lexi and Luke as pawns to do this. Skulls uses his mercenary skills to save Lexi’s son and any chance he might have of a life with Lexi.

Note: The stories in Hungry Ghosts MC were previously released by another publisher as individual titles but have been combined in a convenient e-boxed set.

 


 

 

Gren has been sent on assignment to Meadowlark Hills to hunt and destroy the evil that has been plaguing the small town. Ever since his relative stole gold from a member of an ancient race, troll-shifter Gren has been cursed with regulating evil. While moving in, Gren finds his new neighbor is also on a mission—to seduce him. He needs to keep his secret safe, but when Omelia meets his troll by accident, he hatches a plan to convince her she’s imagined it all. When the evil decides to bring Omelia into the equation, Gren is haunted by a mistake he made in the past. How much will he give up to have Omelia in his life? Everything—almost.


Viking/Pict romance

 

Fate is cruel to those without a voice.
I was born Solveig, but my family called me Dark Raven because I was different and they considered me cursed, treating me as a servant. When the new Jarl found out they’d kept raiding spoils, he banished them from our settlement. They had planned on sneaking off in the spring, but everything changed and Jarl Calder brought me into his house. I gave him my heart and thought he returned my feelings, but he had other ideas. Again I found I was a servant and Calder was to marry a Jarl’s daughter to unite the two powerful families. Galdi, another servant, said his new bride would make my life torture and I would have to find a way to leave.
The opportunity came when the Jarl was negotiating with the Picts for new lands. Galdi said the king would like me because I was dark and different and she suggested he give me as the extra piece of silver to sweeten the deal. And so I was to sail off, my heart broken, to a new land with people I knew nothing of. But fate can turn the sea into a road and once you take a step, you won’t know where it ends unless you keep going.


Merry Christmas Netherlands!!!

 

 


A couple of the “locals” dropping by.

 

 

 

 

 

 


The tree is up! This year, colored lights and a cardinal on top. I didn’t want any decorations, just keep it simple. I love the warmth of the lights glowing out from the darkness. It is snowing lightly and the birds are in a feeding frenzy at the feeder. They know colder weather will soon be here and are busy preparing. The deer have been hanging about, they know it’s hunting season and if they keep within town limits, they are safe. For those wishing to read Ghosts Through The Mist it will be on kindle unlimited until the end of the month. The Young Adult book I’m writing under Anne Wentworth is moving along. Check out the site for more info. If you like science fiction – head over there. http://annewentworth.net/   This year has gone by so fast and I’m really looking forward to 2018. Best, Leah

 

 

 

 

 

And yet, more Vikings… I will be revising what was the four book Encircled By Gold series and releasing it ~2018. Stay tuned for more. Currently writing a YA under my Anne Wentworth pen name and will be moving onto a new Romance book that is waiting in the wings. It’s been busy here. We had a cat show up on our doorstep in freezing weather and have taken him in. He was around in the summer and we thought he had a home, but apparently not. (our door to door and posters didn’t produce results) He’s living the good life now, big comfy bed, hot and cold running fish and kibbles and lots of love. Miss Fish is not pleased, but she is learning to adapt. I’m hoping in time she will accept him. We tried to find out if he was missing and keep watch, should anyone post, but to date, zilch. It snowed lightly here today and with the Christmas lights on the deck and trees, it is beautiful at night. Life is good and I am grateful.  Have a good week and if you read Ghosts Through The Mist, please, please, please post a review – even just stars. Cheers, Leah

 

 

 

 


Viking/Pict Romance

A wise king once said—

Love is something more powerful than any warrior. It is alive and moves and shifts of its own accord, much like the seas around our island. It is not of this world, but a gift that has been given to each of us to bask in and only if we are truly fortunate. If the love you feel for Calder is true, it will not wither and die, but take root deep inside you, growing with absence and enduring of any other’s charm. You can’t throw love away. It isn’t a rock you throw into the waves and forget about. Like the ocean, fate will always bring it back to you.

He was right.
