Hi peeps

Welcome to the Fall in Love with Fairytales blog hop, sponsored by Decadent Publishing and the Beyond Fairytales authors. I’m so honoured to be a part of this line and to be in the company of these fabulous ladies.

What is it about fairy tales that resonates so wholly with us? I know I love them to pieces, and probably began my life long love of stories. My absolute favourite was ‘Beauty and the Beast’, which has crept into my own work (*cough* TEACH ME, SILK & SCARS *cough). I was absolutely thrilled when I learned of Decadent Publishing’s Beyond Fairytales line. I immediately put my hand up and was consequently assigned ‘The Glass Coffin’, a Brother Grimm tale. A tailor wanders into a forest and finds a princess in a coffin of glass, guarded by a bear and stag. To win the princess and a kingdom, he must defeat the bear, the stag and the magician who imprisoned the princess. The tale is similar to ‘Sleeping Beauty’, so I incorporated bits from both tales into my own version, SLUMBER.

In the land of Dormiraa, Fashion is everything and those who create it rule the world. Second only in consequence to the king, the tailor rules the Fashion Houses and is the head adviser to the crown. The hero of SLUMBER, Sebastian, has lied and schemed and cheated to become tailor and, having finally reached the exalted position, is nonplussed when the king tasks him to finding the lost princess.

Thalia, princess of Dormiraa, has been lost these last seven years amongst the people of Dormiraa, learning of their lives and their passions. Finally found, she is resigned to returning to her royal position to take her place as queen.

However, not everyone desires the princess’s return. On the road back to the capital, Thalia and Sebastian encounter strife and danger which brings them closer together…but could also tear them apart.

I had such fun writing SLUMBER and incorporating bits and pieces of both tales into my story. The glass coffin became a medical device used to stabilise and heal the deathly ill. The spindle became the Spindles, a separatist group protesting against the king. The bear and stag became Bharia and Stahg, Thalia’s guardians and protectors. I hope you enjoy just as much!

Over the past two weeks, you will find posts from the authors behind the Beyond Fairytales series. We have spaceships, cowboys, owls, princesses, princes, and geese. If you like M/F, M/M, F/F, or ménage, you’ll find at least one of each. Each one is unique and indescribably naughty. If you’ve gobbled up all of the collections already, be sure to check out the Beyond Fairytales blog for new releases and additional books.

But it’s not over yet! There’s more fun on the way. Tomorrow, visit my fellow Green Book-er, Linnea Alexis, for the next stop.

Beyond Fairytales Blog Hop #BeyondFairytales

Beyond-Fairytales-blog-hop-2

The Beyond Fairytales Blog Hop is hosted by Decadent Publishing and Bab’s Book Bistro.
Let the celebrations begin!

 
Hey peeps,

Welcome to the Beyond Fairytales Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be a part of this fabulous line of books from Decadent Publishing with my tale SLUMBER.

SLUMBER is a re-telling of ‘The Glass Coffin’, a fairy tale very similar to ‘Sleeping Beauty’. I incorporated elements from both tales into Talia and Sebastian’s story, making it a rollicking and dangerous adventure through the Kingdom of Dormiraa, a land where fashion is everything and the Talior is second only in consequence to the king. Talia is the lost princess, gone these last seven years, and Sebastian the Tailor, sent to find her and bring her home. Of course, not everyone desires the princess’s return…

I hope you enjoy the hop, peeps. Thanks for stopping by!

Slumber by Cassandra Dean Part of Beyond Fairytales from Decadent Publishing

The Tailor has been tasked to find the princess…
Upon decree from his king, Sebastian, Tailor to the entire kingdom of Dormiraa, embarks on the mission to fetch the Princess Thalia home, her seven year Royal Tour over. He didn’t expect to find her working with clockwork and gears, encased within a coffin of glass. He did not expect the sight of her wild black hair to set his heart to pound, or the flash of her dark eyes would heat his blood. He did not expect he would want her so badly, not when he could never have her.

The princess must become the Queen…
Thalia has always known she must return to the capital to prepare for the throne. She did not expect her father to send the Tailor to fetch her, or that this man with his extravagant clothes and subtle cosmetics would intrigue her so well. There was something about him, something that spoke of danger and secrets, even as his wicked mouth and knowing eyes made her yearn.

However, not everyone desires the princess’s return. When they are attacked, they can only turn to each other. Will they overcome status and secrets to discover a love for all time?

Hey peeps,

Welcome to the Winter Warm-Up Blog Hop! Big thanks go to Jane Wakely of Romance Blog Hops for hosting. There’s a giveaway below, so make sure you scroll to the end.

I love this time of year, though where I live in Australia, it’s certainly not cold. In fact, warm is a good description…it can sometimes get scorching hot here in dear old Oz. Our Christmas contain air conditioning and cold beer rather than roaring fires and eggnog, swimsuits and sunscreen rather than mittens and scarves, and we don’t get to wear the fabulously tragic Christmas jumpers/sweaters that are the bane of every Christmas movie ever (much to my disappointment).

One day, I’d love to experience a white Christmas, to have the cold sting my face rather than the heat slap me about. However, even if I do one day get to experience this, I have a sneaking suspicion I’ll miss my sweltering Aussie Christmas…

In my latest release, SLUMBER, the climate is also quite warm. I envisioned Dormiraa, the kingdom my hero and heroine hail from, is loosely (VERY loosely) based upon Kings Landing in Game of Thrones. It has the same warm colours, the same heat, the same feel of endless summer…much like Australia right about now!

I hope you enjoy the hop, peeps. Thanks for stopping by!

Hey peeps,

Welcome to the Christmas Wonder Giveaway Hop! Big thanks go to The Herd Hops for hosting. There’s a giveaway below, so make sure you scroll to the end.

What am I looking forward to this holiday season? The annual leave! I’m REALLY looking forward to the break from the day job, two glorious weeks where I can sleep in, mess about with family and friends, and just generally be a great big sloth. Ah. Sounds like bliss!

I’m also looking forward to all the Christmas decorations. In South Australia, we have the Christmas Pageant the first Saturday of November, which signifies the official beginning of the Christmas season. Most people put their decorations up after the Pageant…but not us. Sigh. My sister’s birthday is at the end of November and, growing up, we weren’t allowed to put the decorations up until after her big day. Man, how sucky, right?? Such a diva 😉 Now that we’re grown, the habits of childhood still have a strong hold and I can’t put my decorations up until after her birthday. So I’m really looking forward to that!

But now, on with books that are on my wishlist. I’m quite desperate for the next in Kelley Armstrong’s Cainsville series, Deceptions. Alas, I’ll have to wait until the second half of next year for this one. I’m also looking forward to Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews and Meljean Brook’s new book under her pen name, Milla Vane.

What are you peeps looking forward to?

~Exclusive Excerpt~

Sunlight played across Thalia’s closed lids, and, reluctantly, she admitted defeat. Sleep had fled, and she’d no recourse but to begin her day. Opening her eyes, she turned from her side to her back, the sheet tangling about her as her arm fell on the empty space next to her.

Surprise had her struggling to sit. Sebastian sat in the chair opposite the bed, the sketchbook balanced on his drawn-up knee. He wore only his trousers, his pale chest golden in the early morning light. Brow creased in concentration, his strong hand feathered the pencil over the page.

She watched him for a time, delighting in the play of smooth muscle. “What are you drawing?”

A ghost of a smile danced over his lips, showing he’d known her gaze had been upon him. “Nothing.”

“No, what are you drawing? Let me see.” Tugging at the sheet to ensure it came with her, she awkwardly walked on her knees to the edge of the bed and then stumbled to his side.

Smile firming, he watched her progress. “Have a care how you step, Princess.”

She ignored him. Ensuring the sheet was gathered over her chest, she looked at what he’d drawn. “Oh.” Her throat worked, strange emotion choking her. “You’ve drawn me.”

He’d drawn her asleep, her cheek against the pillow and the sheets draped around her. He’d drawn her with a gentle glow about her. He’d drawn her so she looked…beautiful.

Glancing at him, she found him regarding her, a half-smile tugging at the corner of his mouth as he watched her reaction. “I’ve also started your gown,” he said.

“My gown?”

“For your Confirmation.”

Still swamped with emotion, she swallowed. “Oh?”

“Here.” Moving the book, he tugged her into his lap. Arms encircling her, he held the book before them and flipped to the page holding the design.

Breath shallow, she tried to focus on the sketch, but the feel of his strong arms about her distracted her to no end. Beneath her, she could feel the beginnings of his arousal, his shaft growing solid and thick. He did nothing about it, though, and she fought to do nothing, too.

He pointed, the move brushing his arm against her side. “See this brace? It’s to be of leather, and mimic the harness of your gearsmock.” Lips whispered against her cheek as he spoke, and her breath seized in her throat. Her heart roared in her ears.

He traced a line just under her collarbone. “The neckline will rest here, following the natural slope, while the bodice’s fit will be snug enough to show your shape, but loose enough to be comfortable.”

His hand curled around her ribcage, his fingers dipping into her waist. Fire followed in the wake of his touch, and she bit back a moan.

His hand made a path over her belly. “I’m not certain of the waistline. Should it be natural? Raised? Drawn to a vee?” He traced out each one, his fingers dancing over her flesh.

She could stand no more. Turning in his arms, she took his mouth with hers.

He dropped the sketchbook and, pushing the sheet aside, he covered her breast with his hand, his thumb worrying her nipple. She gasped, pushing herself into his touch, wanting more, needing more.

His hand trailed up her thigh. “I’m glad you decided to show me the difference.”

“What?” she managed, focused wholly on the progress of his hand.

“The difference.” His fingers feathered over her core.

“What?” Gods, what was he talking about? Shifting, she let her legs fall open and pushed herself against him.

“Between not intending to seduce me”—he pushed through her wet folds, finding the center of her pleasure—“and intending to.”

Beyond Fairytales Blessings Blog Hop

2014_11_10_BfBlessings Hi peeps!

Welcome to the Beyond Fairytales Blessings Blog Hop! I’m so thrilled to be a part of this blog hop along with fellow Beyond Fairytales authors. This hop is taking the form of a scavenger hunt, where you hop to all the authors’ blogs listed below to find their personalised badges. Then, enter via rafflecopter and you could win a huge bundle of Beyond Fairytale stories! Sounds pretty awesome, right?

But first, let’s chat a little about my story, SLUMBER.

I was assigned the Brothers’ Grimm tale, The Glass Coffin. Now, I’d never heard of this fairy tale before, so it was straight to Wikipedia for me. When I discovered it was a version of Sleeping Beauty, the wheels starting turning and a short four months later I had the bones of an idea! Haha, maybe it didn’t take that long, but it certainly took me a while to get a handle on Thalia and Sebastian’s story. However, I’m super pleased with the result and I hope you are, too.

But now, on with the fun bit of the post. In SLUMBER, Sebastian teases Thalia with an old newssheet article of her antics as a teenage princess. For your delection, here’s the article. Enjoy!
 

Princess Tali Tells Tall Tale to Thelonic Beau!

Princess Tali has again found herself in hot water after being discovered locked in a torrid embrace with a hunky lad later discovered to be employed in the king’s stables. The young princess, who readers will remember was spotted kissing Lord Semlac of Sulibarr less than a month ago aboard her private ship, was seen to exit the bowels of the very same ship half-dressed and disheveled, the stable lad following close behind. What else can this author assume but the princess has made another conquest, one a little closer to home?
This author has discovered the lad to be of Thelonic origin, who are well known for their mastery of the art of amour. Previous to their discovery, Princess Tali was seen to be in conversation with her Thelonic beau, displaying flirty smiles and a light touch upon the boy’s arm.
The palace denies all knowledge of the princess’s involvement with the servant and instead remind this author of the king’s upcoming tour to Maramiral.

Hey peeps,

Welcome to the Fall Into Romance Giveaway Hop! Big thanks go to Romance Blog Hops for hosting.

While in the Northern Hemisphere autumn is fast approaching, here in Australia spring has sprung! After a particularly wet and cold winter, it’s so lovely to see the first signs of spring – longer, sunny days, bright flowers, footy finals. All of this points to warmer days and the beginning of summer. Lucky me, my sister has just bought a house by the beach, so I foresee many a lazy summer afternoon spent lazing on the sand in the sun, a drink in one hand and a book in the other.

However, let us talk of autumn! That’s what we call the season here in Oz, and I must admit I do love it just a tinsy little bit. The turning of the leaves, the cooling of the days, the way the air smells of rain…Fun times indeed! Nothing better than curling up with a good book… hey, isn’t that what I’m doing in summer too?? Crazy 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, peeps. I hope you enjoy the hop and there’s a giveaway below, so don’t forget to scroll right to the end!

To research, I went on a cheeky trip to Sovereign Hill, an open air museum here in Australia, and that was just all manner of fun. If you’re ever in Ballarat, I highly recommend you check it out.

Rough Diamond by Cassandra Dean Western Escape Decadent Publishing

THE DIAMOND SERIES, BOOK 1

Owner of the Diamond Saloon and Theater, Alice Reynolds is astounded when a fancy Englishman offers to buy her saloon. She won’t be selling her saloon to anyone, let alone a man with a pretty, empty-headed grin…but then, she reckons that grin just might be a lie, and a man of intelligence and cunning resides beneath.

Rupert Llewellyn has another purpose for offering to buy the pretty widow’s saloon—the coal buried deep in land she owns. However, he never banked on her knowing eyes making him weak at the knees, or how his deception would burn upon his soul.

Each determined to outwit the other, they tantalize and tease until passion explodes. But can their desire bridge the lies told and trust broken?

Quick update from the salty word mine

Hey peeps!

The writing is going quite well, so I thought I’d check in:

  • Roman Man – 8 (very crap) chapters. First draft 65-ish% done.
  • WTF 2: The Reckoning – Just over 1000 very rough words. Currently in banter mode. I do love banter mode (and not banger mode, as I just tried to write. Although, banger mode does have its time and place)
  • Duchess & Tutor – Stalled, but percolating

 
In other news, edits on ROUGH DIAMOND are almost complete, and we’re on track for a September release date. I hope to have some more info real soon!

Also, have you seen that TEACH ME is available all over the place in PRINT?? Check out TEACH ME‘s page for linkage and the like.

Finally, this weekend I’m headed off to Sydney for an historical fashion exhibit. Looks to be some awesomesauce things on offer!

Right, that’s about it, peeps! Stay tuned on the blog for blog hops and interviews and stuff, such as:
