It isn’t exactly the betrothal of the century.
“Salut!” Auntie had appeared like magic with a flask of spirits and four elaborately carved goblets reserved for the occasion. Once tea was replaced by something stronger, the bargain was truly sealed. The shaman would solemnize their agreement, but they were pledged. And so, in a plains man’s tent in the middle of their festival and on the cusp of war, Sarai became the wife of Javrik, whom she had known for half of an afternoon.”
Coming soon – Book 1 of The Sahra Chronicles – an ancient worlds historical fantasy romance – Light of the Gods.
Love is just a link away. One bad mistake sparks a chain reaction of terror for two innocent people.
When a registered nurse is blackmailed into helping two coworkers commit a crime, she never expects to find love. With her career on the line, the last thing Camille needs is romantic entanglement that will most likely lead to heartbreak if a secret from her past goes public. She just wants to end the nightmare and return to her job.
Lights out for business owner Trenton Shade upon helping a lady in distress. He wakes hours later chained to an antique barber chair in the middle of nowhere. The nurse caring for him seems too kind to be an abductor. Her cohorts, on the other hand, paint quite a different scenario. Plummeted into a dangerous situation, he reaches out to the only possible helping hand.
Can two victims of evil intent escape the clutches of a crazed pair of women driven by greed? Even if Camille and Shade make it out alive, will the bond formed during captivity lead to a future together?
There are some wounds even the most powerful love cannot heal.

Tudor Secrets – Anthology
Submission Deadline – May 3, 2021
Travel back to the Tudor period, one of the most romantic periods in the histories of England and Wales, with this exciting upcoming anthology. DCL Publications is looking for well-written, period-specific stories of romance and intrigue for an anthology titled ‘Tudor Secrets.’ The Tudor period of history occurred between 1485 and 1603 and coincides with the dynasty of the House of Tudor, whose first monarch was Henry VII. Authors are encouraged to take a true-life person from the period and incorporate that individual into a fictitious romance, without infringing on any well-known romances or marriages of that person. It is a heavy task that the most genuinely talented authors shall be able to conquer.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 3, 2021, by 5 PM Eastern Standard Time. Submissions should be emailed to DCL editor Jean Watkins at email@example.com with the header ‘Tudor Secrets Submission.’ Attach your submission as a WORD doc document. In the body of the email, include a brief synopsis (blurb) of your story. Stories should be well-written and be read over to ensure minimum typos and errors. Please use Times New Roman 12 pt font and 1.5 line spacing, with a 0.5 indention on the first line of each paragraph. Poorly formatted manuscripts and roughly written manuscripts will not be accepted. Word count minimum is 11,500. Word count maximum is 17,500. Stories must be fully developed with a definitive beginning, middle, and conclusion. Submissions may not be a part of another series or a sequel to another story. In other words, submissions must be able to ‘stand on their own two feet’ without the reader relying on another story to introduce or conclude it.
‘Tudor Secrets’ will be available in electronic and print formats in late Fall 2021. It will also be available in audio-book at a time to be determined. Authors whose submissions have been accepted will receive a share of royalties on a quarterly basis for the length of the seven year contract required. Space is limited in this anthology. Authors may be required to take part in special online promotional events and virtual book tours. Authors whose submissions have been accepted will be notified within 30 days of submission receipt.
