Alyson, thanks so much for having me on your blog today.
I’m Sara Daniel. I write contemporary romance fiction—irresistible romance with captivating family drama. Not only do I aim to entertain, I also want to give people hope and a belief that everything can and will turn out happily ever after. So, I really hope my readers have that wonderful, warm fuzzy feeling and come away a little less cynical about the world around them.
I decided to publish with Musa Publishing because they were so author-friendly, completely transparent with sales data and had a great royalty rate. Since then, I’ve found a great community of authors and warm, professional staff that make the entire publishing process a treat.
The Wiccan Haus intrigued me from the moment I heard Musa was developing a magical world that was open to submissions. I saw the cover for the first book in the series, and I couldn’t look away from the intense, rugged hero. I bought my copy of Shifting Hearts by Dominique Eastwick as soon as it was available and read it that night. I fell in love with the quirky cast of characters that inhabited the island, and I knew I wanted to create a story in that world.
I’d never written paranormal before, and I’d never written for a shared world. I had reservations about both. They were both immediately put to rest. Incorporating magic and paranormal elements gave me so much story depth that wouldn’t have been possible in a straight contemporary.
A Man Worth Fighting For
He has nothing left to offer. She's determined to show him just how much he's worth.
Shot by a member of his military team, Justin Lawson retreats to the Wiccan Haus. Holly Walters refuses to accept her boyfriend's out-of-the-blue rejection without an explanation, even if getting the answers forces her to be trapped on a bizarre island for an entire week. She's going to use every minute to work Justin out of her system once and for all. Justin's body and spirit begin to heal under Holly's loving ministrations. As she talks about never seeing each other again, he realizes he never wants to let her go. But the rogue assassin who had gone after Justin before is after him again. Before he can fight to make Holly believe in their love, he'll have to fight for both their lives.
“How did you hurt your knee?” Holly asked.
“Occupational hazard,” Justin muttered.
That wasn’t very comforting, considering he was in the military and always going off on missions that he couldn’t give her any details about. “Did you fall and break it?”
“Bullet shattered it.” His words were clipped.
She flinched, wanting desperately to reach for him, hating to think of the pain he’d been in, the pain she’d known nothing about. “And how long before or after this happened did you send me an eight word break-up text?”
“About seventy-two hours after.”
She immediately knew she’d been right not to take his text at face value. The self-destruction of a client and the week of lost work were worth it. She’d needed this explanation. More than that, it proved there was still hope for them. “So you conceivably could have still been under the effects of anesthesia.”
“But you were on pain medication for sure.”
“Don’t make excuses for me. I was an ass. I broke up with you, and you deserve better.”
