When Fiction & Reality Collide

I am quite literally jumping up and down in excitement right now.

First, some background – the Irish B&B in rural VA where a lot of Rekindled Prophecy (Greylyn the Guardian Angel series, Book 1) takes place was actually named Killahevlin (in the book, it’s called Gaelic Haven). The inn has since closed down and last I checked it was still For Sale (in case someone in interested in owning a beautiful B&B).

Now, the excited part – There is an actual hotel, Killyhevlin, in the exact county in Ireland, overlooking the exact lough (lake) mentioned throughout the series as where my protagonist (Greylyn) originally came from.

There are glimpses into County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland starting in Book 2 and basically all of Book 3 is situated there and in Dublin.

How I did not know this before now, I have no idea! Seriously, that is fate!

This is the inn in Front Royal, VA where most of the story takes place in Rekindled Prophecy.
This is the Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, overlooking Lough (Lake) Erne.
I foresee some updates to Book 2 and Book 3 to add in more about this place. Originally, I had Greylyn (the main character) arriving back in Ireland at a small inn overlooking Lough Erne but I believe she deserves a serious upgrade in accommodations.
To put things in perspective why I’m so thrilled about this revelation…I was married at the VA B&B, Killahevlin, back in 2000. I didn’t start writing Greylyn’s story until 2016 or so (with kids and all the other chaos of running a household of eight people, writing was first done in fits and starts and stops and repeat cycle). Today (9/16/2019) I find out that the B&B where I was married (name changed in the book to Gaelic Haven) was named for an actual luxury hotel and resort in the actual location where Greylyn’s story originates – Ennishkilllen, County Fermanagh, overlooking Lough Erne.

Book Cover Reveal for Rekindled Prophecy

Drum roll, please.

Rekindled Prophecy Hardcover 3d

Guardian angel, Greylyn saves innocent humans from their own inner demons or the more nefarious real ones. She’s overdue for some rest and relaxation, but upon finding her archenemy already entrenched at an authentic Irish bed and breakfast, she knows her vacation is over before it ever starts.

Enemies for over four centuries, Greylyn has fought the dark guardian, Kael; and fought her desire for him. This time, however, she must work with the dashing dark guardian to protect innocent lives. It’s a deadly gamble. One she has no choice but to take.

But the situation is far more treacherous than she realizes as a notorious fallen archangel holds the lives of a mother and her unborn child over Greylyn’s head to force her to consummate a dormant, but deadly prophecy. One so deadly that Heaven didn’t even write it down.

The Rekindled Prophecy: Greylyn the Guardian Angel is an urban fantasy novel with strong undertones of romance and sex appeal between two enemies – one working for Heaven, the other working for Hell.

Announcement: Stolen, a prequel to the “World of Rebellion” series by Bailie Hantam is AVAILABLE NOW

 

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I am tickled pink to announce that the first (actually the prequel) to one of my favorite PNR series is now available (see link above). “Stolen” is the prequel to “A World of Rebellion” series.

If you enjoy sweet romance mixed with some sexy fallen angels and add a dash of hot sex appeal…you will LOVE this series!

I had the pleasure of previewing the prequel, and the subsequent series, and trust me…rebellion has never looked so sexy.

Just a little author/reader confession…one of the characters, Lexi, is my girl crush! Hoping to convince @Bailie Hantam to work on a story where her Lexi and my Jasper (guardian angel) characters have some adventures together. 

Also, if you haven’t already, check out Bailie’s contemporary romance, “Breaking Her Defenses.” It’s sweet, it’s authentic, and it’s super-charged sexy.

Happy reading!!!!

Here is an excerpt from The Goblin King – a retelling of Labyrinth (Sexual Rating: Adult Content):

The boy blinked at the snowflake that danced for him. His
father’s kingdom sat quietly behind it—fuzzy and
obscured.

“I see a girl,” he said, and it felt as if his voice had deepened, as if he
had grown older as he stared at her—a girl with dark eyes and dark
hair and graceful hands and this feeling that she was… his.

Even as just a boy, not really knowing what possession meant, he
felt it with stark simplicity—the way he knew that he would someday
be king and that both goblins and men would fall at his feet.

In the dancing snowflake, she leaned over a desk, drawing a pen
across a piece of paper.

He watched, fascinated, as the steady movement of her pen
stopped and her fingers turned abruptly, taking what she had drawn
and shifting it into a different direction. The boy had never seen
writing like that—artwork as much as letters.

His name.

Radek.
