You never know what the Universe is going to throw at you. In my case, a brick wall, literally. In truth it was more like I was thrown at the wall. I fell and hit my head. A quick trip to the emergency room and a CAT scan later and the diagnosis was “A concussion”.
I’ve never researched concussions before. I had no idea that you should stay in a dark room and limit all stimulation for ten days or that you shouldn’t use anything with a screen.
Even now, six weeks later, I have problems with screens and getting over stimulated. My whole life has been put on hold, so my brain can recover. I’m happy to say, that I am better, but not well.
To my fans, who are expecting a book out this month, it’s been pushed back. I’m not sure exactly when “Katya” will be coming out, but I hope before summer is done.
I’m learning to be patient with my limitations and myself. I hope you can be patient with me as well.
If you are so moved, I am open to all prayers and healing thoughts as I recover.
Until next time,
Book One of the Volkov Family Chronicles
Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success she’s comfortable with. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate.

My Perfect Mate is now LIVE!
Come join Susan and JP as they journey into the Arctic Circle to save the world.
“What’s their problem with lycans?” Susan asked as they started down the stairs.
“I don’t think anyone really knows,” Esme said. “Our kinds have interbred when the mating bond snapped into place. Mathis and the children prove that by turning into arctic wolves. Something must have happened in the past and now some, not all, of the polar bear shifters hate the lycans. They keep saying it’s about territorial hunting grounds. Lycans don’t hunt the seal or whale. Maybe you can find out more while you’re up there.”
“There you are, Suzy-Q. Ready to go?” Ujarak asked from the front door.
“Where’s JP?” Why did she have to sound so needy?
Ujarak frowned. “He’s outside with Mathis and Jared. I guess you’ll want to ride with him.”
“Yeah, I guess so,” Susan said.
Ujarak turned and stomped out the door. Esme squeezed her hand. “He must really like you to be so jealous. Are you going to be all right with these two?”
“Sure. I have every woman’s dream, a mate and a spare. What could go wrong?”
The Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Book Ten
Six months have passed since Susan Adams was forced to become a lycan. She’s embraced the wolf with her whole heart, but having super senses and running on four feet can’t help her keep a job or figure out where she belongs. Now, with a mating bond snapping into place and the mating heat riding her hard, Susan’s wolf is demanding she cement the bond in place. There’s only one problem. Her mate isn’t a lycan. In fact, she’s not sure what he is, and mating Susan is the farthest thing on his mind.

In truth, he is an immortal Fae Lord sent by the Queen of Avalon to guard a dimensional gateway sitting in the middle of Quebec City. When the lycan mating bond attaches to his heart, JP is both delighted and dismayed. Finding his “Destined One” is an unexpected gift, one that could cost him more than his immortality.
It’s Here! Aerial Magic
by Caryn Moya Block
I had so much fun writing this book and working with my editor to make it the best version it could be. My other series of books is set in contemporary Earth, except for adding some well hidden paranormal beings and talents. This series begins that way with Destined Magic and then the magic begins. Each book in the series will take the heroes on an adventure into a different world. I find world building exhilarating. I love coming up with different cultures and belief systems. In Aerial Magic you get to enter the world of the Fae, a beautiful and deadly place. Enjoy!
Book Two of the Witch Guardian Romance Series
Elise Delaire, the Guardian healer, goes to the bonding ceremony of her best friend. While there, Mabel Avery, the commander of the Guardians, introduces her to Curtis Brant. But when Elise shakes Brant’s hand, she realizes that not only is this man not who he says he is, he is also her Destined One.
Owen Avery is on a mission from the queen of the Fae. Apprehend the rogue Fae who is now being called the Red Wizard. Everything is going according to plan until he shakes hands with the delectable Elise. Not only can she see through his disguise, but her touch causes his magic house tattoo to take on color, proving that she is his Destined One. Is he willing to give up his immortality and his home, the land of the Fae, to claim her?
This is book two in the Witch Guardian Romance Series. To enjoy this book to the fullest, it is suggested that you read the series in order, starting with “Destined Magic”.
Sneak Peak #1:
As their hands touched, sparks shot from their fingertips. A shock of electricity traveled up her arm and into her heart. The man in front of her wavered, growing taller. His hair turned white blond and fell to his shoulders. The thick glasses disappeared and his eyes deepened in color to emerald. The bone structure in his face became more angular and his ears appeared to grow pointed tips. A look of shock crossed his features.
Trumpets blared and a woman wearing a crystal studded emerald dress and tall silver crown entered, followed by several more guards. Pearls lay draped in her long white blond hair.
“At last, Owen has sent Rhaim home. Guards take my nephew to the dungeon until I decide his fate. Now, what have we here, and where is Owen?” the woman asked. Two men wearing blue and gold uniforms dragged the Red Wizard from the room.
Elise tried to sit up the rest of the way, and moaned when her brain threatened to burst. “Owen is at the Red Wizard’s compound. I used the bracelet port key,” Elise said, holding onto her head, the sound of her own voice painful to her ears.
“Who might you be?” the woman asked. This must be the Queen of the Fae who Owen mentioned.
“I’m Elise Delaire, Owen’s Destined One. I’m a Guardian.”
“Guards, take this human out and kill her,” the woman said.
“Uh, uh, uh. None of that,” Owen said, taking her hand from his body and pulling it to the headboard. “You are mine, little healer, all mine. Wood so hard, mold and carve, bracelet wrists to hold and guard.”
The wood of the headboard stretched and opened to encase Elise’s wrists. “Hey, no fair,” Elise complained, tugging experimentally at the bonds. They held tight.
