Scrying for Summer Release!

Book two of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles released today with Loose Id! Scrying for Summer is out!

Yeah, all right, Jev said she was looking for adventure, but she meant the garden variety, like stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. She didn’t mean handsome-as-sin Liam O'Reilly showing with word that the worst organization of fae they'd ever dealt with was on the rise again. She definitely didn’t mean anything to do with Liam O’Reilly—traitor, asshole, and the absolute last person she wanted to work with.

Of course, her life doesn’t tend to give her those kind of choices. So it’s adventure, cliffhanging variety, and the gorgeous asshole. Jev tells herself it’s just work, a mission like any other, but the longer she works with Liam, the more the fire between them burns, turning from rage and irritation into something primal. And as she gets to know the real Liam O'Reilly behind the charming smiles and sexy lines, he becomes so much deadlier. Because the protective, self-sacrificing man underneath his facade is just the sort she could fall for.

THE BLURB:
Helena -- part earth-bound angel, part vampire -- is pregnant, and it's playing havoc with her unique abilities. Her usual diet of vampire blood makes her physically ill, one minute she's visible the next she's not, and she's suffering from blackouts.

After yet another blackout, Helena finds herself back in Satan's clutches. This time there is no way for her to escape on her own, and a dangerous rescue mission ends with Helena going into labour prematurely.

Helena's child is born and all too soon must leave her to deliver a message to the mortal world. But the last time someone was sent with a message, it didn't end well ...

Lancelot Is a Woman!

corrected20Lancelot20cover

 

Lancelot: Her Story, a new novel by Carol Anne Douglas, tells the story of Lancelot as a woman in disguise. As a young girl, she fought her mother's rapist. Her father then raised her as a boy. She became the greatest fighter of them all. Hearing of a king in another land who battles for justice, she journeys to offer her services. What will she find at Camelot? A dream? A nightmare? Or both?

Reviews:

"Of all the Arthuriana I've read and loved, Lancelot: Her Story is right up top. It hearkens back to the galloping, castellated feel of Malory, and yet its twist speaks to today's audiences." -- Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel

"Lancelot: Her Story takes a place alongside Nicola Griffith's brilliant Hild in its highly detailed picture of life in medieval times. The story is both ingenious and suspenseful in its reworking the tapestry of medieval times and its endless wars through a feminist prism." -- Katherine V. Forrest, author of Curious Wine

Lancelot: Her Story is available in print and digital formats at Amazon.
