The Long Awaited...

Book 2...

Ok, it wasn't that long, but you get the gist...

Anyway, yes, you've waited almost a month to find out what happens next to our stalwart hero's and heroine's...well, here it is folks.

The continuation of To Light The Dragons Fire is here in To Save The Broken Heart, Book 2 of the Dragons, Griffons and Centaurs, Oh My! Series...

Lanni Heegan is having a really bad day. Recently recovered from being mostly dead, she sets off to save War Advisor Arin Manus from an unsure fate at the hands of the traitorous Griffons. But what starts out as a rescue mission, soon has her in yet another mess. Will she have the strength to survive or will she need saving herself?

Arin Manus is also having a really bad day. Traded to the Orc’s, his rage over Lanni’s death and his own circumstances will not be tempered anytime soon. Or will it? Can he put aside his desire for vengeance and escape to fight another day or will he allow it to consume his broken heart and kill him…

Are either of them strong enough to combat the plans set in motion by the dark evil bent on ruling The Five Kingdoms? Do either of them have the necessary fortitude to fight the battles ahead? Or will they wallow in self-pity and give in to the ancient Prophecy that started it all…

Find out if Arin and Lanni can Save Their Broken Hearts in the continuing saga of Dragons, Griffons and Centaurs, Oh My!... 

And just in case you missed Book 1: To Light The Dragons Fire, here it is again.

Amazon   B&N   Smashwords   ITunes   ARE
Independent and feisty Terra Heegan is on the verge of sacrificing everything to save her family’s struggling trucking company. But, she wants one last hoorah before settling into a loveless marriage. With her sister, Lanni, Terra takes a trip into the Mountains of Wyoming to explore one of the few places left on Earth where adrenaline and wit are the only things that can keep her out of trouble…

Dragon King, Draven Taraxus, never wanted the crown. Born to a dying breed of Rulers, Draven has sat on the throne for the last 100 years, thanks to his father's impeachment. Boredom and stagnation have left his kingdom, and his heart, ripe for the picking by a power hungry evil that has spent the same amount of time plotting and scheming to take over.

Everything is in place. The pieces have all been set and all Evil needs is one last ingredient to rule everything. The love of a human with fire-red hair and silvery eyes that will…Light The Dragon’s Fire
And just cause I love ya'll, here's an exclusive teaser from Book 3, To Free The Dragons Soul, due to release August 15th, 2014, or thereabouts...
To Free The Dragons Soul, Book 3 of the Dragons, Griffons and Centaurs, Oh My! Series
Seven rotations later Fyris was wondering what in all the Nether Worlds had possessed him to offer himself up as the sacrificial lamb so to speak. Climbing slowly up the steep cliff of rocks, he wiped the sweat from his brow and shifted the pack Terra had given him.
“You know, I could lift you a bit more.”
He cut a look down at Enon, resident guardian of the cave housing the portal. “No, no, I am fine. I can make it.”
The massive Dragon snorted out a cloud of smoke and shook his head. He curled back to the floor, his green-yellow eyes watchful. “If you say…”
“I do,” he grunted.
Swinging up, he dangled by two fingers then adjusted his grip. He’d flown here from Win-ra and while both he and Enon barely fit in the cave in Dragon form, he was still too big to reach the magical opening. He’d had to shift back to his humanoid self and scale it by hand. He’d tried working his way up the long bank of sand Terra and Lanni had slid down all those rotations ago, but there was no purchase to be had.
So, here he was, sweating, annoyed and about to give up on the idea when he finally reached the ledge at the top. Scrambling over, he waved, watching his fellow Dragon’s scales pulse blue in relief. “I will return when I can.”
Enon waved a claw. “Be safe friend. Do not let the humans bite!”
He laughed and headed deeper into the tunnel that would lead him to a world he’d grown up believing was nothing more than myth and legend.
Was he nervous?
Not really. More concerned over what the evil bastard of a Unicorn had been able to accomplish in the short time he’d been on the other side…

Thanks as always for stopping by.

Until next time!

Eric R Asher's Vesik Series

His series is now out in Audio Format, so feel free to check it out...

Book Info-
Title-Days Gone Bad
Series- Vesik # 1
By Eric R. Asher
Genre- Urban Fantasy

My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We've vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I’ve faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and … damn, I need a vacation.


Audio Book-


- Excerpt -

Foster’s howl shattered the night. It grew into a scream as his body began to glow. Swirls of orange and red flickered into being around him, spinning faster and growing thicker as he called on the wild fae. A swirling sphere of color like the storm clouds of Jupiter swallowed the van and Foster with it. The entire scene burst into a nova of flame and I closed my eyes against the light, the blast of heat hitting me like a desert wind. Foster’s scream fell silent. I heard his sword slide out of its sheath as he stepped from the smoke and flame. His body and wings were covered in soot, but no burns marred his flesh.

The smell hit me as the wards were dissolved by the fae-powered flames. The stench of burning skin and hair was overwhelming. I stepped away from the inferno, blinked a few times, and followed Foster into the garage.

“What will the authorities find?” I said.

“Nothing but a burned out van.” Foster’s voice was dead, his knuckles stark white with the pressure he put on the hilt of his sword.

Book Info-
Title-Wolves and the River of Stone
Series-Vesik # 2
By- Eric R. Asher
Publication Date- October 22nd, 2013
Genre- Urban Fantasy

Philip, Zola’s boyfriend from one hundred and fifty years ago, is not nearly as dead as we thought. I really wish he was. Not only has he kidnapped Zola, but he’s raising an army to scour humanity from the earth. Hopefully the local werewolf pack will help. What could possibly go wrong?


- Excerpt -

I eased the bullets into my six-barreled pepperbox one at a time, forgoing the speed loader in the name of intimidation. Lewis’s eyes went wide and locked onto the gun.

“Where is she?” I said. I took a deep breath, the Missouri River beside us masking every other scent aside from the decay of the blasted zombies. The shadowed tree lines hid us from the nearby population of Saint Charles.

Lewis shook his head.

Two days ago we learned Philip was still alive. Yesterday his servants kidnapped Zola. I didn’t know why they took her, but she didn’t go quietly. The Watchers would be using a spatula to clean out the alley where she was taken.

“You sicced your zombies on us?” I said. “A fairy and a necromancer?” I glared at Lewis. “I find myself ... irritated.”

Lewis held up his hand and started to speak.

I holstered the pepperbox under my arm and wrapped my hand around the shield rune on my staff. A flowing glass surface sprang to life as a thread of power wound into the wood and metal.

“Don’t even think about it,” I said.

Despair washed over Lewis’s face. He was breaking, and I could see it.


Book Info-
Title- Winter’s Demon

I fear the war has begun ... and damn, I don't get paid enough for this.

Book One Mine For Tonight currently FREE ON AMAZON


Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

Billionaire Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he tries never to do anything that he’s sorry about…except for what he had done in the past to Dr. Madeline Reynolds. Many years and regrets later, Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying Maddie’s best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make things right, so he offers Maddie a bold proposition, an offer he knows she’ll have a very hard time declining even though she hates him.

Dr. Madeline Reynolds adores her best friend Kara and her fiancé Simon, but being forced into the company of Sam Hudson, because they are both in Simon and Kara’s wedding, is pure torture. She’s hated Sam for years, but when he offers her a bargain, something near and dear to her heart, she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her, but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they appear to be.

He'd been reunited with a sister he hadn’t realized existed. Finally he had family again, a reprieve from the pain and loneliness that had haunted him since his devastating loss. Yeah…he was as happy as a man could be, considering he had lost the other half of his soul and most of his heart when fate had torn his wife away from him.

Or so he believed…until the day he rescued a mysterious woman in the park, a female who somehow had managed to reignite a part of him that he thought was long dead...
Suddenly, Max's protective, dominant, possessive male instincts flare to life, leaving him at a loss as to how lightning could possibly strike twice in one lifetime. Is he truly being given another chance at real happiness, or would it be dangled in front of him, only to be taken away once again?

The Billionaire's Game - The Billionaire's Obsession ~ Kade
With his professional football career over due to a tragic accident, billionaire Kade Harrison takes on the task of solving a mystery for his brother-in-law and friend, Max Hamilton. Without his former career to fill every minute of the day, Kade's looking for something to challenge him--now that he's lost the career that had meant everything to him. But what starts out as a simple favor soon becomes a whole lot more than he bargained for when the woman he's seeking slips away from him every time he gets close to finding her. When Kade does finally corner her, things start to get even more complicated. Asha Paritala is nothing like he expected, and the female he had tracked down as a favor for Max soon becomes a woman he wants for his very own, a woman who makes protective and highly predatory instincts he didn't know he had flare to life inside him. Kade soon discovers that he wants Asha's total surrender to the desire and passion that vibrates intensely between the two of them, but he also wants her trust, the one thing Asha's history makes it difficult for her to give. Can Kade convince her that some things are worth risking it all?

Caught between two worlds, Asha Paritala is homeless, broke and damaged from a life of abuse and neglect. Born of an American mother and an Indian immigrant father, Asha was raised as an Indian woman by a foster family after the death of her natural parents when she was little more than a baby. She's spent her entire life under the control of others until finally breaking free two years earlier, and she's determined to keep her freedom, even if it means she has to struggle to survive. But when she meets Kade Harrison, her resolve is tested. After Kade helps her through a bad situation, she finds herself beginning to trust Kade as she's never trusted a man before. Kade is everything she always thought a man should be, but can she lose herself in him completely when she knows she's damaged and confused. And is it really possible that she could be a lost sibling to two people like Max Hamilton and Maddie Hudson? Asha is tempted by the possibility of family, and the irresistible lure of a man like Kade Harrison. Can a woman caught between two cultures, so flawed and so backward, really reach out and take what she wants, or will the instinct to run from the pain of her past destroy the hope of happiness for her future?

Find out if two broken souls can heal each other in The Billionaire's Game, book 4 of The Billionaire's Obsession series!!

This is a complete novel with no cliffhangers. 18+ due to sexual situations and graphic language.

Trailer -


After four years of working for “the billionaire boss from hell” Ally Caldwell thinks she finally has her life on the right track. Her fiancé is out of dental school, ready to go to work at a thriving practice, and it would finally be her turn to go back and finish her college degree. Unfortunately, her carefully planned future crumbles when she finds out that her fiancé, the man she’d nearly killed herself to help get through school, has been cheating on her. With her wedding looming in the near future, Ally’s blindsided, realizing she’d never even knew the man she’d been planning to marry. Suddenly, her carefully organized life is turned upside down, and not one single thing is turning out the way it was supposed to happen. Even her boss, Travis the Tyrant, is beginning to act differently, throwing Ally into an even more confused and chaotic state of mind. Travis, the one man who she’d always counted on to be a jerk, was now the guy who actually steps up to try and help her straighten her life out again. Unfortunately, she doesn’t much care for his highhanded arrogance or his methods of “helping.” Ally wants to hate Travis. It makes her life so much simpler to fight with him than to admit to the combustible chemistry growing between the two of them. But as she begins to see more and more of the real Travis beneath his dark façade, she can’t seem to resist the dangerous lure of their unlikely attraction.

Billionaire Travis Harrison does everything he possibly can to repair the Harrison name after a scandal nearly destroyed his family years ago. He makes sure he keeps himself and his actions in check, his emotions buried under a thick layer of ice. Only his secretary and assistant, Alison Caldwell, makes him come close to losing his carefully constructed image. The obstinate female keeps shoving him closer and closer to the edge of sanity every single day. But when he finds out about her fiancé’s betrayal, his protective instincts roar to life inside him, making him want to ensure she’s never hurt again. The only problem is…Ally doesn’t want his help, and the infuriating woman does everything she can to push him away, even as the two of them are swept into an undeniable passion that neither of them can possibly ignore. Before long, Travis finds himself in ruthless pursuit of something much more important and elusive than just a business deal.

Can these two very different, very stubborn people actually be meant to be together? Find out if Travis and Ally can let down their defenses and surrender to a love so powerful it will rock them to the depths of their souls in Billionaire Undone, Book Six of The Billionaire’s Obsession series.

My Lovely Betas...

As you've heard me say, two of my lovely betas, Karen Mikhael and Kerri Ainsworth are both very, very, VERY talented! They do absolute wonders with Polymer Clay and other nifty neat things, something I could NEVER hope to do myself...

Anyway, over the last week, I either won something from this lovely pair, or bid on it and today, both arrived!!!! YAY for double pressies in the mail!

A lass, it seems the packages might just have crossed into the Five Kingdoms at some point along the way, because there was a scuffle.

Mr. Dragon, whom I decided to call Drayze, lost his battle with the dastardly cotton balls in which he spent his journey...

I cleaned him up as best I could, but as you can see, he is quite tuckered out now.

Mamma Wolf didn't fare so well and arrived in much worse shape...

I have a feeling Golix had a hoof in this injury! The babies, as you can also see, were unharmed but worried greatly over the condition of their poor Mamma.
But, I retrieved my trusty surgical tools...
and after many, many, MANY heart-wrenching hours - where it was truly touch and go there for a while - I am happy to report that Mamma is doing just fine in her Post-Op Recovery!

As you can see, even though Drayze is quite exhausted, he is still ready to defend and everyone is one big happy family!

So, thank you Karen and Kerri! You ladies ROCK! I haven't a thing to fear when these guys are guarding my desk ever so diligently!!!!

If you'd like some lovely friends of your own, you can find both these totally AWESOME ladies here:

Karen's Page, Treasured OOaks
Kerri's Page, Mythiical Creations

Why don't you head over and give them both some Facebook Love. Tell 'em Margaret sent cha!!!

Thanks as always for stopping by.

Until next time.

And now, Enjoy!!!!!
Draven kissed her temple. Pulling back, he stared down into her face. “Are you well my love?”
Her hand dropped and rubbed her backside. “More of a bruised butt than anything I think.” The silver pools searched his face, concern flittering through the surface. “You?”
He nodded, squeezing her close. Now that the crisis was gone, he could breathe normally again. Her scent wafted up his nose and he pulled it deep. The same reaction he always had when she was in his arms rippled across his chest, begging, pleading to take her below decks and spend the rest of the rotation exploring her flesh. His dick filled with blood and fire, thumping wildly against his lower belly in anticipation of that thought.
Terra cleared her throat and he opened his eyes, watching hers shift down slightly. He pulled back, to get control, but she reached out and touched his chest. It was just a tentative brush of her fingers but he could see the yearning in the silver of her eyes, almost like she didn’t want him to go…this time.
She sucked one corner of her mouth between her teeth. She frowned which was followed by a look of indecision and then fear pulsed through her eyes.
“What is it, my love?”
He didn’t want to ask, didn’t want to know really, but he couldn’t help himself. He had too. If there was going to be any chance for them, before or after this, he needed her to communicate.
“Ion,” her eyes lifted to his. “He called me Queen.”
He smiled. “That he did.”
“But, I’m not.”
He leaned his forehead against hers. “You are.”
Grabbing both her hands, he splayed them against his chest, covering them with his own. His hearts pounded relentlessly against his sternum, trying to burst forth and meld with hers. “Do you feel that?”
She frowned at his chest, worrying at her lower lip and he almost gave in to the overwhelming urge to kiss her…and more.
“You do that,” he whispered in a low voice. “You own them Kyleri, you always have.” He pulled back enough to see her eyes, holding them with his own. “They belong to you.”
She sucked her lip in further and he couldn’t help it. He had to kiss her. Letting go with one hand, he drove it into her hair and possessively pulled her the last increment separating them. Tilting her face just so, he took her full lips, slipping his tongue between them when they parted on his name.
Her arms wound behind his neck, teasing the ends of his hair. She folded against him and he scooped an arm under her legs, carrying her below without breaking the kiss.
In his quarters, the ones he’d taken across the hall from hers, he set her on her feet and stepped back even though it nearly killed him to let her out of his arms for even a moment. Letting his eyes roam the length of her, he smiled slowly. She had on a shirt they’d bought before leaving Roasu and dark breeches melded delectably to her long legs. Her chest heaved at the air and he could feel her heart beating in time to his own.
She shifted from one foot to the other, toying with the ends of her wind-blown hair. “What?”
He closed the distance again, spanning his hands around her waist. “Nothing, My Queen,” he whispered against her lips. “I was just making a memory…”
