Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh!

Sure now and isn’t tomorrow St. Paddy’s Day?  What better time to talk about my romantic historical series The McCoys?

The McCoys of County Tipperary weren’t nobility, not Quinton McCoy’s branch, at least. His family was descended from the Scottish Clan Mackay who in turn traced their lineage from the royal House of Moray.

Descendants of Vikings interbreeding with Celts and producing people called Gall Gaeil or foreign Gaels, the McCoys were a feisty lot always spoiling for a fight, though often with a habit of choosing the wrong side to champion. During the first war of Scottish independence, one branch of the family lost their lands. Being warriors, they didn’t sit around and bewail the fact, however. Instead, they turned their love of battle into a vocation, becoming galloglasses (mercenaries), traveling across the sea to Ireland where they hired out to fight for…

Hanami by V.C. Buckley


, , , , , ,

What is your greatest temptation:

In men:
Humility. Nothing is sexier than a guy who doesn’t really know how awesome he is.
In food: Sweets…in all forms and all kinds!
In clothes: I’m not very particular with fashion. I have practical taste, but I do seem to lean more towards anything bohemian and I love native fabric and exotic prints and embroidery.

What is your greatest weakness (example: buying shoes)?
Sweets! Especially pastries. I can probably be bribed with it. I just find it very hard to say no when it’s in front of me. Life’s too short to be denied such pleasure!

If you could have any kind of car, what would it be? A black hummer!

Your dream home – mountains or ocean? Ocean. I’m an Island girl. I love everything about it.

What inspired you to become a writer?

Life. My father was an amazing storyteller, and he had a unique view of the world. He taught me to look at the world from another perspective, and he encouraged a healthy imagination.

Do you have a daily writing routine? If so, please share.

Yes, I do. I set a target word count that I try to break everyday. Although there are days that can become more challenging than usual, like when errands start to pile up and other matters require my attention. I try to get some words in, or try to make up for it when I don’t.

What is your favorite book?

There is quite a lot. It’s hard to pick only one when there is so much variety in the world. So I’d rather say that I love the classics, like Black Beauty and The Little Princess. But I also enjoy contemporary and regency romance stories, and just about anything that is well told.

What is your favorite movie?

I loved Erin Brockovich. The story of her life was very inspiring and in many ways, I could relate to her.

Who is your favorite historical figure?

Jesus.  Regardless of what you believe, he DID exist. And he is my favorite historical figure, because all the stories told about him, and the messages conveyed in them can be life altering.

In your books, who is your favorite hero and please introduce him?

Kenjin Kiyohara is the hero in my book HANAMI. He is the sole heir to the Kiyohara Empire, Asia’s largest Oil and Steel Company. He is arrogant… but who can blame him when every woman in the world would kill to be the object of his affection? The problem is…nobody is good enough for Kenjin…until he met the mysterious Sakura.

Who is your favorite heroine and please introduce her?

The heroine of my debut romance novel is Sakura Shintani. She is next in line to succeed her grandfather, the leader to the most notorious crime family of Japan. She is dangerous, with a legendary temper…but now she has to complete a program in some fancy school upon the request of her grandfather while hiding her true identity. But having the face of an angel proves to make this quest quite a challenge.

What do you have out now? Excerpt, blurb, book trailers

You can view the book trailer of HANAMI in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhONdkI9y64

New releases anytime soon?

The Sequel to HANAMI will be released sometime in 2018. I also have another contemporary romance in the works schedule for late 2018.

GENRE:   New Adult romantic suspense


 SAKURA SHINTANI is the Dragon Clan heir-Japan’s most notorious crime dynasty. But can she keep this fact a secret from the prying brats of Oniyuri Academy?
She tries to stay out of their radar while mastering her demons and keeping her murderous temper under control, but having the face of an angel only attracts everyone’s attention… including the arrogant heir to Asia’s most powerful tycoon, KENJIN KIYOHARA.

He senses the danger, but Sakura is too interesting to be left alone.


Jin rolled his eyes, settling his gaze back on the girl. He wasn’t surprised with their reaction.

The new girl was hot, but so what? It took more than a pretty face to get his attention. He wasn’t that easy to impress, and he was certain she’d be throwing herself at him anyway. Just like everybody else. He was sure this girl wasn’t any different from the love-crazed hyenas that stalked him.

Jin pushed back his shoulders, seeing her start towards him with her eyes still trailing on the ground.

Already? Jin thought, suppressing a laugh. He crossed his arms, waiting for her to get closer, and sure enough she stopped right in front of him. She was even prettier up close. Asian but with a hint of Caucasian mixed in.

“What?” he asked, smirking. He already knew what she might say: whether he was Kenjin Kiyohara, the sole heir to Kiyohara Industries? The questions were all the same. He thought she would have at least waited until class was over like the rest of them.

“Move your feet. You’re blocking my way,” the girl said in a sharp tone.  She shifted her gaze up at him like a threatening knife. Her topaz-colored eyes darkened, sending icy tremors down his back. He felt as if he’d been hit by a curse as his mind turned blank.

When she finally looked away, Jin was able to regain his senses. He tucked his legs out of her way, and she passed, leaving goosebumps in her wake. His eyes followed her, waiting to see if she’d look back, but she never did. Jin’s hands were trembling. His thoughts became jumbled while he struggled not to look anymore.

What was that? What just happened? This was a first for him. He couldn’t contain himself. His presence had no impact whatsoever. Instead she looked like she wanted to kill him!

Jin took a deep breath, replaying the moment in his head. Who was this girl? She sure got his attention, all right—and it left him in pieces. He fought the urge to look back again.

This girl…Jin thought. There was something about her. He couldn’t shake off the feeling. She seemed dangerous.

It’s rodeo time in Houston, and traffic around the NRG Stadium crawls to a stop.  Since 2003, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (RodeoHouston) has been held at NRG.  HLSR is the largest livestock exhibitions and rodeo in the world and offers the richest purses.  The event is 20 days long. Kickoff is marked by the Downtown Rodeo Roundup held near Houston City Hall, the Downtown Rodeo parade, and the ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run – a 10k and 5k walk & run and the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest (the Chili Cookoff, which is a major event in HLSR each year).  In 2017, attendance reached a record high of 2,611,176 people and 33,000 volunteers.

Of particular interest to me is the trail ride associated with the HLSR. In 1952, four men traveled on horseback from Brenham, Texas, to raise awareness of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™. Today, more than 3,000 trail riders partake in the Rodeo’s signature tradition each year.  One year, I saw them ride into Memorial Park and it was quite a spectacle, all those horses, trail-weary cowboys and cowgirls.  Yes, have to admit I always wanted to participate in that part of the rodeo.

I was there several years ago and saw the Zach Brown Band.  The rodeo has drawn some of the world’s biggest recording artists, including Dixie Chicks, Elvis Presley, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Bon Jovi and Lynyrd Skynyrd to mention a few.

I don’t usually go because of the huge crowds but one year I went with a friend and ended up buying this stunning necklace of a Spanish horse. The lady was getting ready to leave, and sold it to me at a lesser price. Otherwise, well…

Almost every book I’ve ever written includes the Andalusian or the Lusitano horse.  I think Gylded Wings may be the only one that doesn’t have a horse of any persuasion. This dark fantasy is narrated in first person from Lucifer’s POV, but there is nothing satanic or demonic about the book. In fact, the ending is rather uplifting:

Angels in slavery? Brit Montgomery cannot believe it, until she is sent on a rescue mission to another dimension and witnesses the cruel practice first hand. The angel, Gyldan, is the most beautiful being she’s ever seen. She is drawn to him but sometimes beauty disguises wicked secrets. This man who rocks her world seems more demon than angel.

Gyldan, born into slavery, has one desire—fly free. When he escapes to Earth, he faces an alternate self-realization full of dark glory…and disbelief. Gyldan is bent on experiencing his newfound powers unmindful of the harm to Brit or others.

Confused and hurt by Gyldan’s erratic evil actions, Brit turns away. While Gyldan’s journey of self-discovery pulls him further distant, Brit finds acceptance in a solitary, comfortable life of her own until she realizes the day of reckoning has come. Will Gyldan be her final ruin or has he come back to her with a gift more precious than life itself?

Share Me, Book 2: Bull’s Eye by Evelyn Vox


, , , , , , , ,

GENRE: Erotic Romance




I made a deal with the devil. A devil named Derek Drake. He makes my husband watch as he uses me to satisfy his carnal desires. I love it, and that terrifies me. Because this bargain only works if they are willing to share me. I don’t know what I’ll do when they decide they’ve had enough of our deal. I’m not sure I can choose between them.


Brian loves watching me pleasure his wife in ways he never could. But the beast inside me is tired of sharing my Goddess. I am the one who ignited the dark fire within her. I am the one she answers to. Alexandra is mine. I don’t see much use for the cuck anymore.

Bull’s Eye is a steamy, kinky MMF romance about a cuckold relationship gone awry. When the line between lust and love blurs, when the two men sharing her both lay their claim, Lexie will have to make the choice of her life: Derek or Brian. WARNING: this story is not for the faint of heart. It is a twisted tale of self-discovery about finding light in the darkest corners of the heart. It has hard BDSM and an open marriage where the boundaries are pushed to the breaking point. Read at your own risk.


The beast purred in predatory delight. Slamming the door behind me, I advanced, ready to pounce. She had the audacity to grin at me. It seemed this long-distance relationship had made her forget her lessons.

Sea-green eyes that I could drown in consumed me. I caged her in my arms, looming down, trying to be menacing. But damn, Alexandra, she was here. In the flesh, at last. I leaned in closer, inhaling her delicious scent like vanilla, the one I’d missed every day. I held her chin and devoured her mouth.

She was so sweet, her lips so perfect, that tongue divine as it danced with mine. I took my time drinking her in, but it wasn’t enough. I needed more. I took her fingers just to hold her hand to my cheek. I closed my eyes and seared this moment in my memory forever. I needed this. I needed her. All of her.

Alexandra’s forehead bumped against mine. My chest tightened, the sensation as overwhelming as the painful throbbing between my legs. The beast raked its claws in impatience, pulling me out of the stupor of our reunion. I pushed her back against the wall.

“You’ve been a very bad girl, ” I breathed, staring into those gorgeous eyes. The fear, the desire that filled them, was enough to make me drunk on her. “And what happens to bad, disobedient, little brats?”

“We get punished,” she whispered.

“Exactly,” I said, unable to stop the grin from splitting my face.

This was going to be so much fun.

Homeward Bound


, ,

At the end of this month, Wings will be flying halfway across the country (916 miles), ferrying my aunt and me to South Carolina.  I’m going home. I’ve learned to love Texas, and I’ll miss it. I’m leaving my dear friends Beda, Lisa and Kelly, and of course my son is here, but it’s time to move on.

I’m negotiating on a cute little brick bungalow in Anderson and should know by Monday if it will be my new home. It’s right beside a big church and that reminds me of the lyrics to an old country song: On Sundays, we’d sit outside on the porch in our underwear watching the Baptists go by.  It’s funny I don’t remember the name of the song, only the lyrics.

Yes, my aunt is flying out on the 30th to drive with me back to SC.  It will be a short road trip because she has to be in Anderson on Monday to go to work. Could be a great road trip if we had more time.

Wings away!

Or at least 225 horses in an in-line 6-cylinder engine.

When I was growing up in the wilds of South Carolina, my mother was what I am today – a car nut.  In retrospect, I suppose I learned that passion at her knee. She traded cars every year, with some excuse or another, but I think she just liked having a different car when her passion faded.  Her favorite was Mercury made by the Ford Motor Company and now a defunct division.

Once, she had a 1964 burgundy Chevrolet Impala Super Sport with really fancy wheel covers.  The style at the time was to remove the wheel covers.  That was cool. So, cool that we were two girlfriends and I borrowed Mom’s SS and headed to Myrtle Beach to cruise the strip.  We didn’t meet any boys at ‘where the boys are’ but we had a wonderful time.

Dream Waters (Book One of The Dream Waters Series) by Erin A. Jensen


, ,

GENRE:  Contemporary Fantasy




Book One of The Dream Waters Series

 All his life, Charlie Oliver has watched the people around him morph into creatures that no one else sees.  Unlike the rest of the world, Charlie remembers the Waters that transport him to the Dream World each night.  And he sees glimpses of people’s Dream forms in the waking world.  Condemned to spend his waking hours in a psychiatric facility because of his Dream Sight, Charlie doesn’t expect anything to change.  But everything starts changing the day Emma Talbot walks through the door in the middle of a group therapy session.

Haunted by memories of the events that led to her admission, Emma plans to end her life the first chance she gets.  But something about Charlie stops her.  From the moment they shake hands, his friendship feels safe and familiar.  As Emma begins to let down her guard, Charlie catches a glimpse of the fiery-eyed dragon that lurks behind her Dream form.  Each night, as Emma dreams of the man who’s been banned from visiting, Charlie searches the Dream World for the monster that shadows her.  But when Emma’s suppressed memories begin to surface, Charlie finds more monsters than he bargained for.


Dream Waters (Book 1) Excerpt #1:

“Where were you afraid I’d land when I fell in and why did you say finding the dragon wouldn’t be easy?”

She started drawing waves in the sand with her finger and I got the distinct impression she was doing it to avoid looking at me. “Honestly Charlie, I wasn’t sure where you’d land. It’s unpredictable when you don’t jump on purpose. You could end up anywhere the people you’ve met have been. You’re a mental patient. Can you imagine the sections of Dream some patients might inhabit?” Her finger stopped drawing mid-wave. “Trust me boy. There are Dark places in the Dream World, places you should never go. Venture too far into them and you risk losing a part of yourself to the Darkness.”

I was really getting tired of the cryptic shit. “Great. Thanks for the vague ominous warning. I was afraid you might give me an actual answer for a second there.”

“I’ve already said too much.” Even at a whisper there was a waver to her voice. “Just thank me for keeping you safe and jump back into the Water.”

“I don’t hich world I find you more annoying in.” It wasn’t the nicest thing to say to the one person who understood me but I said it out of frustration and maybe a little out of fear.

Nellie was about to snarl something back, but the leaves of some bushes just off the beach started rustling and I hopped to my feet to get a better look. “Something’s over there.”

Nellie stood up with a weary sigh and as she turned toward the bushes I saw the scars. Large deep identical scars marring the flesh on both of her shoulder blades.

I took a step closer to her. “What happened to your back?”

She turned and gave me a hard shove toward the Water’s edge. “It’s time for you to go now Charlie.” It caught me by surprise and knocked me off balance, back into the surf and the icy Water pulled me back in.”

The Palmetto State – South Carolina

Pink Fuzzy Slippers Authors

You can take the girl out of South Carolina, but I’m not certain you can ever take South Carolina out of the girl’s heart. I was born and raised in the red clay of a smaller town in the South Carolina Foothills.  Anderson is about halfway between Atlanta to the South and Greenville/Spartanburg to the North on I-85. Most people drive by never knowing it is there except for the highway signs. Or at least this used to be true.  Now Lake Hartwell ensures people stop for a day of swimming, boating, or sunbathing on the sandy beaches of the lake.  These beaches are manmade, hauling tons of sand to dump over the red dirt.

My favorite city, perhaps in the world, is Charleston.  Charles Towne as it was originally called was founded in 1685 by Charles II of England.  I’ve always had a special place in my imagination for…

All About Japanese Robots

Joanne Guidoccio

I’m happy to welcome Wild Rose Press author Linda Nightingale. Today, Linda introduces Japanese robots and shares her latest audiobook releases, Love for Sale and Morgan D’Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody.

Here’s Linda!

This may seem to fly off the pages of science fiction, but it’s a hot new research field and making rapid progress.

At the Toshiba booth at the Consumer Electronics show, Chihira Aico, a life-sized robot in a pink party dress with pearls, stood like a mannequin, perfectly still—at first. Suddenly, the android began to gesture wildly.

“I can be a news reader, consultant or cheerleader!” She threw her arms up and squealed, “I can get excited!”

Chihira is a new concept for a life-like android. Her creators intend to make her seem even more expressive when interacting with humans. By adding additional motors to her joints, engineers are refining her movements to make them appear fluid…
