Yes, the Name of the Fae Horse Matters

Does a horse mentioned in a romance novel need a name?

If you’ve read the books in the Highland Gardens series, you may recall that Caitrina rides a white stallion. The fae horse is mentioned in a couple of the books, but never by name.

In Just Beyond the Garden Gate, the fae horse is mentioned sort of as description…

When they cleared the forest and road into the glen, a mysterious woman galloped out of the mist. Tinkling music filled the air. She raced toward them across the moor, her flaming red hair flying behind her like a pennon billowing in the wind. She rode a handsome white steed with a golden bridle and with golden bells plaited in his mane. The stallion was a fine beast, fast as wind, with an arched neck and broad chest. His nostrils flared; his ears laid back.

Something similar from Just Wait For Me

A red-haired woman, richly garbed in green velvet and fur, sat a magnificent white steed with golden bridle and golden bells plaited in its mane. The beast stomped a hoof and snorted steam from flared nostrils, impatient for action. The lady murmured something in an ancient tongue and the animal calmed.

I think the stallion needs a name for the next book in the series, Just His Fae Kiss, especially since the tale is about Caitrina and Douglas. I expect Caitrina will have more interaction with the animal in this story and I hope the fae horse will become a character himself.

So I need your help. I’m running a contest over on my Facebook author page, Dawn Marie Hamilton, to find a name for Caitrina’s steed. Consider heading over there and entering the contest pinned to the top of the page. I sure will appreciate your help.

The contest will run through December 13th. Good luck!

An Artist’s Point-of-View

New Hampshire mountains

I need to stretch this blog’s description, so bear with me. Yes, this is a blog about all the supernatural-based books we four authors are known for, but I recently tried my hand at contemporary romance, with action and adventure mixed in. The latest book, released November 3rd, is

 

What? No supernatural, paranormal, or hocus-pocus? Nope.

However, this story has the supernatural of nature, with waterfalls, a rushing river, and a devastating storm. The beauty of nature is shared as well.

An artist bored with the city life and a Manhattan lawyer itching to escape his father’s control wind up in a New Hampshire campground. A coincidence? Not likely!
