You may be aware that the UK is rejoicing in wedding fever today, (Saturday)  😁 so I'm sorry, I know I promised you another snippet from Dancing With Fate but I couldn't resist posting a wedding snippet. As it happens, there isn't actually a wedding scene in Dancing With Fate so I hope you'll excuse me for going back to my  Trilogy and 'Children Of The Mist'

(Very slightly edited from published version )


I wish this moment could last forever. We will remember today always. I couldn't imagine a better way to start our life together than here, among all our friends and family. 

He could not stop looking at his bride. Tonight she looked more beautiful than ever. Her hair, free from restraint and gleaming in the light from the lanterns, cascaded like liquid obsidian to her ankles. Tiny silver-white flowers woven into the silky tresses looked, he thought whimsically, like miniature stars against the blackness. Her ivory velvet robe sparkled with thousands of diamond-like crystals, and clung to the curves of her figure. It caressed her slender waist before flaring out into a full skirt sweeping around her feet. He had never seen anything so lovely. 

Two minds united against a common foe. Two hearts afraid to show their love:Long ago Tamarith fell in love with a man she can never have, and is convinced she will never love another. However, she cannot help but be intrigued by a handsome stranger whose psychic powers exceed even her own.

Vidarh seeks only to find his true purpose in life and to win the regard of his father, who eschews his son’s psychic abilities. Thrown together by a common threat to their planet, then torn apart by an evil greater than any they could have imagined, can Vidarh save the lovely Nifl woman who has captivated him, before it is too late?

Will Tamarith and Vidarh overcome the deadly enemy who threatens to destroy all they know and love? Will they find the happiness they both seek? Or are they fated to live their lives alone?



Stop Press - Children of the Mist is going to audio! I'll let you know more when I know myself.

Purchase all three books (or just one, they stand alone, while sharing some of the same characters)  at https://www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B01MRY3XXT

I hope you enjoyed the wedding on TV if  you watched it, and wishing Harry and Meghan all the very best for their future happiness.

    1. Thanks Jenna. I wrote this several years ago, and I do think it kind of reflects the love Prince Harry and Meghan radiated, and the way he looked at her, which is why I couldn't resist posting it!
