Excerpt…The Highlander’s Stolen Heart

DonnaFletcher_TheHighlandersStolenHeart_200pxEmma woke with a start. Had she heard someone call her name or had she been dreaming? She laid there, the campfire having dwindled to embers and the camp itself eerily silent. Not a soul stirred, nor a sound could be heard. She knew that guards had been posted on the perimeters of the camp, so they were well protected, but somehow that did not settle her unease.

She sat up and saw that Rogan was sleeping soundly on the other side of the campfire, her stirring not having roused him. She looked over the camp and saw that all the warriors appeared to sleep as soundly as Rogan.

“Emma!”

“Patience?” She looked around, expecting to see her sister.

“Emma!”

She scrambled to her feet and called out, “Patience!”

When no one in the camp reacted to her shout, she knew something was wrong.

“Dreaming,” she said softly. She had to be dreaming.

“Emma, hurry.”

She did as Patience said and rushed off into the woods. It was so dark that she could barely see anything, yet her feet seemed to know where to take her.

“Emma, stop!”

She halted and waited.

“Listen,” Patience said, “we do not have much time. I did not send that message. Pay it no heed.  Remember all I have taught you and follow your instincts. Do not—”

Footfalls turned Patience silent and Emma looked around, frightened by the heavy steps drawing ever closer.

“Do not trust anyone and stay brave. I am well and we will rescue Heather. Now hurry and go!”

Emma turned to run and nearly stumbled as she stopped abruptly. Before her stood a massive figure draped in black, the hood of his cloak drawn down over his head and face. His arms were spread out from his sides, making it appear as if he had massive wings. A black mist swirled at his feet and began to creep toward her. She looked around to run, but it was too late, the mist was licking at her legs and she could not move. He had her trapped. She trembled as the black mist crawled up along her body. She had never seen anything so sinister or felt so frightened, and she reacted out of sheer instinct…she let out a blood-curdling scream.

Look for more excerpts coming throughout May and leading to the June release of  The Highlander’s Stolen Heart, first book in the Macinnes Sisters Trilogy.

 

Interested in becoming one of Donna’s Divas?

I’ve heard about street teams but haven’t given them much thought until recently when asked if I had one. So naturally I had to do some research and after finding out about them I thought why not give it a try. So Donna’s Divas were conceived.

I would imagine most of you know more about street teams than I do since you are such savvy romance readers, but for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term… according to Wikipedia… a street team is a term used in marketing to describe a group of people who ‘hit the streets’ promoting an event or a product.

So if you would like to spread the word about my books, think about becoming one of Donna’s Diva’s.

Here are some of the things Donna’s Divas would do, though naturally you would pick and choose and do whatever you’re most comfortable with and any suggestions to add to the list would be greatly appreciated.

 

Post on social networking sites, Facebook, Twitter, etc. when I have new releases.

Share various Facebook posts of mine you think other romance readers may be interested in.

Leave an honest review at Amazon, B&N, Kobo, etc.

Put my books on your shelf at Goodreads.

Share promo material sent to you with your readers’ group (if you belong to one).

Share your love of my books with other readers.

 

Naturally, being one of my Divas would give you the opportunity to receive some bling…

Update on the Macinnes Sisters Trilogy

DonnaFletcher_TheHighlandersStolenHeart_200pxWanted to let you know that things are moving along good with the Macinnes Sisters Trilogy. The Highlander’s Stolen Heart is on schedule for late spring. Emma is a determined lass, though Rogan thinks of her more as stubborn. However they both agree on one thing, they have to find Emma’s two sisters, though they don’t count on falling in love.

Also busy with the second book Highlander’s Rebellious Love. Patience is anything but patient and she is in for a surprise when she meets up with a handsome rogue. Don’t have a release date on that one yet, though it will be in 2014.

The last book in the Macinnes Sisters Trilogy is Highlander: The Dark Dragon and let me tell you the hero is one dark character. How sweet Heather is going to deal with him I don’t know, but she has so much more strength than anyone realizes.

I will keep updating you so you don’t miss a thing about the Macinnes Sisters Trilogy!

Website Redesign: Opinions Wanted!

I’m about to have my website redesigned and before I get started I’d like to get your opinion on authors’ websites. What is your top reason for going to the website? Do you like receiving an author’s newsletter or do you prefer to just be notified when an author has a new book available? Are you a frequent reader of authors’ blogs? Is there anything you dislike about an author’s website?  Any opinion—pro or con—on authors’ websites will be much appreciated.

 

 

Happy St. Pat’s Day

Rogan dropped Emma to her feet once in a small bedchamber and slammed the door, then turned on her. “You will watch your foolish tongue or suffer for it the next time. I understand you are upset and that you have ridden hard to get here and get help for your sister, but you are here and you have gotten the needed help. There is no more you can do. I will see to this from here on.”

“No!” Emma shouted, stepping away from him, the width and breadth of him much too intimidating. “Heather is my sister, and I will not abandon her. I go with you or I go on my own.”

“It is good I chose Heather over you for a wife, for you are a willful lass.”

Emma’s chin shot up defiantly, though his thoughtless remark stabbed at her heart. It was one thing to assume that a man did not want her, but another thing to hear it from him. “I do not care what you think of me and I am blessed that you won’t be my husband. And since you will not be my husband, you have no say over me. I will not let you stop me from seeing my sister safe.”

“You think I cannot stop you?” he asked incredulously.

“I am not blind,” she said, recalling the ease in which he had hefted her over his shoulder and the strength of his muscled arms that had held her firm. “You are a mighty warrior, but I am a determined sister. I will not be left behind.”

Rogan itched to reach out and grab her and—throttle her. He did not need her interfering, getting in his way, being more of a hindrance than help. Rogan caught the shiver that ran through her and silently swore. Dampness was probably seeping into her bones from her wet garments.

“Get out of those wet clothes,” he ordered.

Her eyes popped wide. He couldn’t expect her to strip naked in front of him. Could he?  “Or what?” she dared him. Two long strides had him leaning over her and planting his face so close to hers that she could see that his dark eyes were dotted with specks of gold.

“Or I will strip you myself. Not that I will take any pleasure in it. You are soaked and need to get dry.”

Another thoughtless remark that tore at her, not that she would want him to touch her, but of course he had to let her know that stripping her would be a chore.

“I have no other garments,” she snapped feeling pity for Heather that she should be stuck with this rude man—if they could find her. The thought of possibly never seeing her sister again caused her legs to go so weak that she had to grab the back of the wood chair she stood beside for support.

He saw that exhaustion and worry were taking their toll on her. She needed to get dry and rest. And if he was lucky, she would sleep through his departure. Then there would be nothing she could do but remain here while he saw to rescuing her sister.

“Sit,” he snapped frustrated with her foolishness.

“No!” she retaliated sharply. “I will have your word that you will take me with you or I leave now and see to finding my sister myself.”

His hand snapped out and grabbed her wrist, yanking her from behind the chair and slamming her against his solid chest. His dark eyes blazed with fury, and she feared she had gone too far.

“Listen well, Emma, for my warning is not to be taken lightly. I rule here and I will not be disobeyed. You will do as I say or I will see you locked away in the tower until I return with your sister.”
