Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the League of Lords paranormal series? It sounds exciting! How are the books tied together?
I had a scene in my mind years ago. It's not actually a scene that is IN the book but rather described there. When the hero and heroine meet as children. I hesitate to strongly use the word paranormal--think psychics. With much of the similar Victorian historical wrapped around it.

The hero, Julian,...

I have always been interested in the Jacobite era, and the Lords of the Highlands series centers on and leads up to the 1715 rising led by the Earl of Mar.

My husband and I travel a lot for business and pleasure. Over the forty plus years of our marriage, we have stayed at everything from stunning boutique hotels to fabulous bed and breakfasts to corporate chains.

The Crusader's Heart
by Kate Forrest | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for The MacKinnons of Mull series? How are the books tied together?N:
The inspiration came from learning about the life of Saint Margaret, Queen of Scotland.

Love it! I will be reading more of this author, entertaining and intriguing, along with vivid, intense action…plus the fact, this author knows her sci-fi." Something's rotten on the angel planet. When Avenging Angels turn up dead, Urielle, their Legion Commander, suspects the handsome intruder brought unspeakable evil to Azura. Maksou never met a woman he couldn't seduce. He came to the forbidden planet to rescue his friends and get rich in the process, but the jungle crawls with lethal life forms… including a gorgeous warrior angel, who saves his life but keeps him prisoner and challenges his irresistible charm. Urielle, sworn to protect Azura at all costs, has no use for a maverick who ignores the rules and endangers the planet… no matter how attractive.

The Gamekeeper's Daughter
Queen Victoria's top assassin, Lord Alexander Stokes harbors his fair share of dark secrets. Chief among them his membership in an elite brothel. When a damsel-in-distress appeals for his help, he ponders the consequences, yet her similarity to his first love intrigues him. He offers to help her with a single condition: that the beauty consents to be his chattel for an entire year. Given no choice, Julia agrees to his terms. Anything is better than going to the gallows for a murder she did not commit, especially when the real killer is stalking her. Despite her misgivings about being the masked man's chattel, his raw masculine power lures her in like a hawk to her falconer. Can they learn to trust one another and live long enough to know true love?

Chalk it up to Love
First book in the Aspen Ridge Series. Rediscover romance in Aspen Ridge-a small town with an open heart.
She's won't be swayed from mission. No matter how sexy they are.
What do you get when you cross a whip-welding, mask-wearing vigilante and a set of uber-wealthy telepathic twins, with a serial killer out for vengeance? The end of the world. Well, the end of the world as they know it. After surviving a plane crash that left them with telepathic powers that bounds them together as one emotional collective, twins Ethan and Ronan Daniels have struggled with how to fit into their new reality. Especially Ethan, who relies on his brother to keep the voices in his head from driving him insane. A brief stint with the crime-fighting group the Evolutioneers gave them hope that there was a place for them. And when a cry in the night for help brings them face to face with a mask-wearing woman dispensing her own version of justice, they find appearances can be deceptive, and they are eager to learn more about the avenging angel who is able to block her thoughts to them. By day Jameson Alinari runs a women's shelter. By night she makes personal visits to those who have committed crimes against women. Having a pair of handsome twins bust in during a "teaching moment" was a complication she did not need. But when one of her former targets is murdered in a grisly fashion, she is now reliant on the hot twins to prove her innocence. What she never expected was the chemistry that ignited with not one but both of the Daniels. Her future was on the line. She didn't have time indulge in night-time fantasies. Or did she? As the body count rises, Jameson fights for independence in a relationship that feels too, too perfect, as Ethan and Ronan fight to prove what seems so wrong can be oh so right.
TRIBES
Alex, her sisters, and their kids are on their way to her camp in the Adirondack Mountains for the Columbus Day weekend when the unthinkable happens. A voice on the radio warns of an imminent attack and tells them to seek immediate shelter. Greeted by guns and bullets when they try to seek shelter, they are forced to hide in a cave to wait out the fallout. After two weeks in their dank hole, they're wasting away from starvation. Alex wakes up one morning to discover her sisters gone. They've taken the rented minibus and returned to the city to search for their husbands, leaving Alex to care for her 7 nieces and nephews. It's an arduous 35-mile hike through the mountains to her camp. There's no way the kids can survive such an ordeal…but they do! It becomes a journey through hell. Society is devolving. Looters, murderers, and rapists hold sway now. The strong preying on the weak. The small hamlets and villages they pass through have been turned into killing fields as survivors battle each other for the few remaining supplies. Above them, the skies are growing darker every day, blocking out the sun. Temperatures are plummeting, winter is coming early. Her burden increases when Alex takes in two orphans she finds on the trail. Now she has 9 hungry mouths to feed. Their little band is elated when they finally make it to camp. They're safe, at least for the moment, but in order to keep from starving, they'll need to learn how to live off the land the way the tribes that once inhabited the area did. Alex knows where to find the books that can teach them how to survive: the gift shop at the Adirondack Museum. While searching the buildings there, she stumbles on a large, hidden cache of food only to discover it's guarded by a man who'll haunt her nightmares. Half guardian angel, half demon. Both barbarian and benefactor. A strange mixture of brutality and gentleness, cruelty and caring. A man named Wolf!

Wyatt Stanton served as a spy for Wellington until he receives word of his brother's death.

Dark Love Rising by Danita Minnis
Dropping his towel, he put on a pair of briefs. "I can't take you with me. I don't know where I'm going and I'll be traveling day and night. You'll need to find someplace to sleep during the day." He shook his head. He said all this as if he were some authority on vampirism and this was not the first creature he had ever encountered. Her husky laughter wafted over from where she stood in the doorway, sending another jolt of heat through his loins. "The sun does not burn one as old as I." "And how old is that?" He turned to feel her hardened nipples brushing his chest, and sucked in an involuntary breath. Her swift, soundless movements were unnerving. With fear and arousal warring in him, he stood completely still, eyeing her lips, which parted in a knowing smile. She'd meant to startle him. Glimpsing perfect, white teeth and, thankfully, no fangs on display, he tried to relax and convince himself that she wouldn't bite. She was just curious about him and he was now aroused beyond good sense.

Adderley's Bride by Danita Minnis
Adrenaline pumping through her veins made her rigid. She held the tray out before her stiffly as she crept towards the bedroom door. The wall sconce at the center of the hall was still on. She could see clear across to the staircase landing but the opposite side of the hall leading to the other wing was in darkness. Stepping out of her room, she was hit with a blast of cold air that whistled around the empty corridors. She didn't have her slippers on and hopped from one foot to the next. It was forty degrees tonight and it felt like she was standing on an ice block. Belatedly, she realized she was making so much noise in her agitation that whoever was in the house could certainly hear her fumbling around. She returned to her room for the slippers. Back in the hall, she stood quietly listening. But it wasn't so much what she could hear as it was what she could feel. The hair on the back of her neck prickled. There was an expectant energy in the air, and she waited. ‘Beautiful Sofie…' The words wafted on the breeze, swept through the corridor and curled past her ear in an intimate caress. They were seductive, hypnotic and somehow calmed her fears. Lowering the tray, she closed her eyes and leaned toward the caress.
