I have some exciting news!

Both The Magician’s Soul and my series “The Great Dagmaru” are up for awards!

The reviewers at the Paranormal Romance Guild have nominated my book and my series for the 2021 Reviewers Choice Awards.

Here’s their review for The Magician’s Soul:

This is the third and final book in this series and should definitely be read in order. Magic, succubus, incubus, sex, suspense, surprises, secrets and much more so all I can say is WOW

If you have already read book one and two then you know most of the characters, like I said if you haven’t begun this series then stop reading this review and pick up book one The Magician’s Curse and begin the journey into the life of Stephen Dagmaru and all the people that affect his life for good or bad.

Stephen and Herman have returned home to plan for their wedding but her nightmares and her introduction to her father’s alter ego, Mona Lisa may put a damper on the happy occasion. Add in the fact that Herman’s cousin Rudy has arrived with the intention of teaching Herman everything she needs to know about…

One-Liner Wednesday – Is time ever wasted?

Photo: Long-stemmed red roses strewn along the right side of the picture with the quote in the middle: “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Do we waste time on unimportant things or do we make things important by wasting time on them? Something to think about.

Hey! It’s a free paranormal romance novel!

It’s been an exciting week for a couple of reasons. One, my book, The Magician’s Curse, scored a spot on Kobo’s free page. Only six books are chosen per week in each featured category, so the ebooks have been flying off the virtual shelves!

Check it out here!

What’s really cool? I’ve distributed my book to 26 countries this week. Here’s the map.

Enter a world of dark family secrets …

Herman believes setting out to make a better life for herself will solve all her problems. Until she meets a charming, mysterious stranger on a train.

The moment Stephen Dagmar sets eyes on Herman, he knows he’s found a new assistant to join him onstage in his magic show. And the woman of his dreams.

At home in Stephen’s Gothic mansion, Herman revels in the extravagant romance he lavishes upon her. Yet a shadow hangs over their fragile love. Is his devotion really what it seems?

Amidst lace and leather, innocence and debauchery, The Magician’s Curse begins the spellbinding tale of The Great Dagmaru.

Start the journey now.

A New Book in The Great Dagmaru Series!

The Magician’s Sire is here, and it’s FREE!

Tortured by the curse on his family and the looming death of his father, Tarmien Dagmar must juggle the family business and his father’s insistence that he find a bride.

Then he meets Stella, a hotel housekeeper in his employ who fully intends to hate him …

I’m excited to announce the prequel to my contemporary Gothic paranormal romance series! I had loads of fun writing this novella, uncovering the background of the magician, Stephen Dagmar’s, family.

The Magician’s Sire is a complete story that contains no spoilers for Book One of the series, The Magician’s Curse. And if you’ve already read the other books in the series, The Magician’s Sire will give you a better understanding of how the story came about.

You can have my new book in your hands within the next few minutes. Just click this link and let me know where to send it!

He’s a hotel CEO with a bad reputation. She’s a distant employee, hard-working and honest. Can she resist falling for his otherworldly charms?

Tarmien Dagmar has no love life. He’s too busy running a worldwide hotel chain. But when he comes home to preside over the details of his father’s imminent death, he meets a woman who takes over his dreams.

Stella is happy with her job as a housekeeper at the Quillmar Hotel. But when she meets the CEO after saving the hotel’s reputation, she’s taken on an unparalleled empathic journey.

As their connection grows stronger, Tarmien sets his sights on Stella. The only thing standing in the way of true love is that he’s her boss … and the descendant of an incubus.

The Magician’s Sire is the prequel in Linda G. Hill’s Gothic paranormal romance series, The Great Dagmaru. It’s available exclusively as a gift to her newsletter subscribers. If you love dark, suspenseful paranormal romance stories, then download The Magician’s Sire today!
