The blurb, aka book description:

Fate Awakened: A L’Amour Bayou Novel

Princess Glendula of the Florea, an Enchanter princess destined for the throne…

Fynn Levy, a human male with no knowledge of the existence of magic…

And a pull between them that cannot be denied. 

Everyone knows that L’Amour Bayou is special. Both Exceptionals and humans alike are captivated by the allure. 

L’Amour Bayou is home… the land she is destined to reign… that is, once she is bonded to her Kindred. 

There’s just one problem… she has a limited time to bond and zero interest in any Florean male.

Fynn Levy is a typical Louisiana man… he loves fishing, hunting, and spending every waking minute he isn’t working to provide for himself in Sportsman’s Paradise. 

A forbidden encounter on the banks of the Bayou change everything…

The world as Fynn knows it will never be the same… but, in a world ran by tradition and magic, does love stand a chance?!

Here’s the first “official” teaser from Fate Awakened!

Magic abounds…

If you haven’t read Antoinette’s Fall, A L’Amour Bayou Novella, I highly recommend you do as it introduces the world of L’Amour Bayou. And, these characters will certainly be back.

Antoinette’s Fall, A L’Amour Bayou Novella

Deep in the bayous in the south of Louisiana, lies a place of revelry, mystery, and magic…

Antoinette Dubois, an Intuitive, has always been a beautiful woman, with no interest in falling in love…

One fateful night on the banks of the bayou, under the light of a full moon, events start unfolding that have Antoinette losing control of her powers…

René Batiste has always been by Antoinette’s side. Together, they seek to reverse the upcoming calamity and to protect Antoinette.
René has loved Antoinette his entire life, but the curse on her family is dangerous for those who love the Dubois women, and means Antoinette is determined never to succumb to love.

However, fate has a tendency to make its own rules…

Welcome to L’Amour Bayou… where beauty and magic reside and nothing is as it seems.

I wrote like a person possessed that day. I think I wrote something like nine thousand words. It was like now that I was finally allowing the voices in my head to talk, they had so much to say.

I don’t think most readers fully understand exactly what being “Indie” or Independent Author actually entails. Continue reading

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a quirky, speak my mind, no filter kind of woman.

Some people love it, some people hate it, but I am me and I don’t see the point in hiding or changing who you are to make others happy.

Loads of things have been going on with me. I’ll try to jot them all down and also give y’all the dates of some totally awesome stuff, you are not going to want to miss!
