Surprised by the Elven Sentinels – September edition

Hello and welcome!

This happened to me yesterday… read on!

There is music being played in the halls of my apartment building? That is a first, and oh what beautiful music. It is like nothing I have ever heard. As the doors of the elevator leading to my apartment open I hear the cadence of the song change as the instrumental is joined by the most beautiful voices. I have a hard time believing this sound comes from a human throat. I exit the elevator and look down the hall to where I live, I am right. There are 3 Elven men standing before my doorway. All 3 had light blonde hair, were lithe, but powerfully built, and the distinctive silver-blue eyes of the Eagle Claw family. I wonder who they were related to that I already new, because I don’t remember meeting these three men in the past.

As I approach them, the first of the trio steps forward and bows. When he stood once more, he presented me with two-dozen perfectly formed white roses,

These are from one whose love is true. I am Goldier.

As Goldier stepped back a second Elf takes his place, bows and presents me with two dozen red roses, as he speaks,

These are from one whose passion is only exceeded by his devotion. My name is Falcon.

Falcon takes the keys to my apartment out of my hand as he steps back and opens the door. The third Elf is the one who was playing a harp that provided the background music. Without stopping his performance, he stated,

The music I play was created to wrap the love a Life Mate felt for his love. Yours sends the melody to you. I have been asked to play it for you from yours.

I walk through the doorway and into my apartment and find it filled with starflowers. Three Elven maidens are busily setting a meal on a shiny mahogany table, there are many covered plates. There are two chairs set behind it, side-by-side. The three girls smile, then break into giggles as one steps forward to speak.

I am Jenna, these other two are Julia, and Alissa. We have brought you fruits of our labors.

Julia and Alissa present me with desserts made with Mutzu apples. My fave, I have not seen these often since leaving my homeland decades ago. On the table there is a bowl filled with them to be enjoyed at my leisure. I pick one up and smell it, its fragrance makes my mouth water. Then Jenna continued,

We grew them for you in our orchard, and your Lord asked us to bring them to you.

I look around at how my apartment has been transformed. The air is heavily fragranced with the scents of the flowers that I hold and those that surround us. And I am sure about what is yet to come. First, however, I must thank these Elves for serving as messengers.

I can’t believe you came all this way to do this for me. I presume you are the ones who were in the orchard in ‘Air Bonded’.

Julia answered,

We were, but that part of our lives is done. However, when we returned home to find Lord Athïan looking so glum, we thought we would give him a bit of help to reach out to the one he is missing so much.

Jenna explained further,

We thought it was only fair, as we are together with our Life Mates.

Goldier smiled as he added,

We will serve you and your Lord as you share a meal. As the evening progresses, we will leave the two of you some privacy. In the meantime, enjoy the music, and the company of the one you love.

A golden light glows as Athïan walked into the room through a doorway that is wreathed in hundreds of starflowers. He holds his arms out to me, and I drop the roses as I run to embrace him.

Athïan!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ll leave the rest to your imagination 😉 Hope you enjoyed the part I revealed though.

They hails from book 3 of the Elven Sentinel Series by M. A. Abraham.

Jenna, Julia, and Alissa are three orphans who were taken in by an elderly couple. The land they live on has been theirs for centuries, it is where they have stood guard over one of the last few portals in existence. They can see the nimbus that marks its location from their farmhouse, and like the others of their calling, they refuse to leave it untended.

Riehl, Goldier, and Falcon know what and who they are looking for. Disguised as apple pickers, the Elven males arrive to find their Life Mates being held at gunpoint. The weapons the enemy is using is beyond their experience and they will have to handle the situation with great care and without exposing their Life Mates to even more danger.

My review: 5 stars

A great addition to the series. As it usually happens when I enter any Ms. Abraham’s worlds, especially the Elven world, I got lost in this story and was not able to put it down. The evil is not fully defeated, but suffers a major loss and the story ended on a happy note with the Life Mates claiming each other. 3 more happy couples added to the Elven Empire 😀
I am looking forward to the next instalment when the Elves finally (hopefully?) end the evil taking root in the human world for good.

CONGRATS to M. A. Abraham!

Surprised by the Elven Sentinels

I am shelving my books after receiving another box full of them from my awesome friend while listening to an audiobook when a soft knock interrupts. I frown… now what? I thought I would have the day to myself.

The chagrin I had felt at the thought of unheralded visitors turns to one of glee as I open my door to reveal two beautiful Elven men, and they have their mates beside them. Yes, I know, I mention the women second, but hey, the eye-candy is so drool worthy. Just my type, tall, good-looking, and male. Elves has such an advantage over the rest of us. So not fair.

As I smile, I tease, Hi, are you here to take me with you to the Elven Empire?

I get no answer, other than laughter, then one speaks. We came to bring some of the last Portal Sentinels home to the Empire. I am Hawk, my friend is Adriel, and we wanted you to meet our Life Mates before we left your part of the world. Please meet Caia and Thea.

I step aside and invite them in, Please, enter. Perhaps I can interest you in some tea, coffee, cake, cookies, or an adoption.

Caia cocked her head a bit as she allowed Thea to enter first and asked, Adoption?

Yes, I reply, I am an honorary Elf looking for a way home too.

Thea and Caia laugh. We understand and don’t blame you for wanting to go home. It isn’t always possible though.

Thea then holds up a bakery box and says, I was sent with a message from Gabriella. She says she will see you soon, and has sent you something you might like.

As Thea puts it down, I take a peek through the cover, Black Forest Cake.

Adriel comes up behind me, and placing an arm across my shoulders, he offers me another box. As he does, he leans over and whispers into my ear, Cherry Cheese Cakes with toasted coconut garnish around the sides, it is to die for, just as you are.

My eyes grow wide, and shoot up to him, I didn’t think male Elves spoke to others like that after they were bonded.

Caia rolled her eyes, Once a flirt, always a flirt. Don’t listen to them. They are all promise and no delivery. Well, except to us. But you know all about that.

As Caia spoke, Hawk’s expression went blank, a moment later he explains. We have to go, time is running out for us. I am sorry we couldn’t spend more time with you, leaving so fast wasn’t something we had thought to do. Perhaps we will meet again in the future.

They didn’t even leave through the door, but used a portal that suddenly appeared before them. I admit, I was tempted to jump through with them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So what do you think? Should I have jumped after them? Maybe I could have surprised Athïan 😉

If you don’t know who these are is because their book just released an hour ago.

CONGRATS to M. A. Abraham!

They hail from Book 2 of the Elven Sentinel Series by M. A. Abraham.

As Hawk and Adriel settle into their search for two Sentinel Guardians known to be in the coastal area, they join a game of volleyball on the beach. Little do they know they are about to meet their Life Mates. They are also the Guardians they had been sent to locate and take to the Elven Empire.

Caia and Thea guard one of the last three remaining portals that allow passage from one side of the Boundary to the other. Caia and Thea know they are being hunted by an ancient foe, but they refuse to leave their posts, not even by imperial command from the emperor.

While the Life Mates begin to get to know each other, the enemy is closing in. As this happens, new information comes to light, and the services of higher powers are called in to help.

The Elven Sentinel Series

Book 1, Earth Bonded released March 23, 2021 and is available at your favourite e-store.

As with Earth Bonded, I enjoyed reading Water Bonded too. I recommend with 5 stars. In her usual unforgettable style, Ms. Abraham brings us into the world of her beloved Elves, but with a twist… it all happens in the human world. As the Elves get ready to leave the Empire grounds (see the Guardians of the Empire series 😉 ), they have to make sure they are not leaving anybody behind and they find some in unexpected places. I can assure you, it will be an interesting, funny, suspenseful ride as Hawk and Adriel find and help the Sentinels they go to retrieve.

A surprise walk into the past

Hello and welcome!

You will not believe just happened to me yesterday. Read on!

The ambience that surrounds an arched doorway made of leafy vines beckons to me from the middle of a hedge while I am taking a walk and I can’t figure the attraction. As I look around, I notice no one else seems to be able to see it. This can mean only one thing, I am getting an invitation to visit the Elven Empire. I look around to see if anyone is paying attention to this area, or me but no one is. So, as I walk past the spot, I quickly step through and into the most beautiful setting I could imagine. There are star flowers lining the side of a walkway, cherry trees in full bloom to the side, massive oaks and sentinel trees reaching high into the sky, flowers of every color imaginable, and in the middle of it all is a massive fountain with statues of a wolf family in the middle. Beside it stand a man and a woman embracing.

It takes a moment for whomever these people are to notice me standing awkwardly watching them. There is so much love surrounding them, not only just between them but in everything that surrounds them. It is as if whatever has been done in this setting has been carefully planned to show how much they care. It fills my heart to near bursting with yearning. I give a sigh and feel the presence of another, Athïan. My love is also here.

I want you to meet a friend of mine, and a friend that you didn’t get to meet in person from your world, Fran and Geraint. Athïan speaks as he takes me into his arms to exchange a very satisfying kiss. I have been missing you.

As I have you, I admit.

I then notice that Fran and Geraint are watching us, and I smile.

The moment they know that our attention is on them, they come forward, and Geraint speaks. Welcome to our home. Enikő, I would like you to meet Fran, she has wanted to meet you for a while now, but we have been rather involved.

Fran smiles at me and I can see that she is truly happy. I used to wait to see what you were going to post next. You were always so full of life it lifted my spirits.

We all loved getting wolf pictures for you, it was almost like a contest who could get the best. I miss chatting with you and miss your ‘Fran-speak’. I admitted while hugging her. Sorry we didn’t meet as we hoped.

Geraint has made sure I don’t need pictures anymore. Fran follows her comment with a huge smile as eight half grown wolf puppies’ swarm around her legs.

Geraint smiles fondly as he comments. The Fates have been kind to give me a Life Mate that loves the same things I do. I don’t know what I would do without my love.

Fran looks lovingly at Geraint and adds, Or I without mine. And, I understand that you are one of the reasons this has come to pass. I want to thank you. I can’t imagine being happier, and maybe one day we will get to spend more time together.

The smile I am wearing wanes as I reply. You mean this is over?

It is not time for you to leave your part of the world, but it will come. You must realize that you are out of time here, this is in your past and you can only spend a few moments. Athïan explains.

I sigh, as I understand what they mean. In real time Athïan and I haven’t even met yet. But, we will, and this is what counts.

As I give and receive hugs from everyone, and take a moment to pet the wolves, Athïan gathers an armful of Star flowers, and when I am finished, he gives me one last kiss before I have to leave.

I then walk back into the world I live in and wonder at what had just happened. Was it real? Was I imagining everything?

I continue to walk as I realize it couldn’t have been, for in my arms there are dozens of fragrant blooms that weren’t there before, and I smile.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoy my adventures.

Fran and Geraint are hailing from “To Love and Elven Healer“, book 2 in To Love A Elf series by M. A. Abraham. Their book just released on April 20, 2021 and I have to tell you, it is an emotional story especially because it is dedicated to a dear friend who we lost a few years ago.

In memory of the Wolf Lady!

Geraint, an Elven Healer has been told his Life Mate is in the Human world. He has come too late, for Fran has been dead for several years already. This will not deter him from claiming the love he was born to cherish and protect. With the help of an Elven wizard, he plans to travel back in time for her.

Fran has just been told she has cancer. She faces her bleak future stoically, determined to do what she feels best for her children. She hadn’t counted on Geraint coming into her life. As determined as she is to live her last days for her children, he is to hold her to his heart and in his arms. To do this, she must agree to leave her world for his.

Is it really possible? To those who believe with all their heart and soul anything is possible.

Read chapter 1 here !

The story is part of Spring Fling 2021 (Twist of Fate), an anthology including stories from C.A. King, Shaunna Rodriguez and A.E. Clint.

Some will win and some will lose. Only a twist of fate will tell the tale.

Spring is in the air and so is romance. New love will bloom, but will it last or will it fade like a flower? Is it a no strings attached fling, or will there be undeniable feelings?

The sky is blue, flowers are in bloom filling the air with tantalizing scents of Spring and love. Sometimes all it takes is a little nostalgia and the brush of a hand, the scent of a woman or his warm breath against her neck; to spark a flame.

Can an assistant finally catch her boss’s eye? Will the guy finally get the girl his heart is longing for? So many questions, So many possibilities.

What better time to have a fling than in Spring?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The series is about Elves searching for their Life Mates and finding them in the human world.

Book 1. To Love An Elven Lord is my story, I got my very own Life Mate ❤

Raith is tasked to look for Life Mates in the human world. The moment he sees Enikő he knows she was the one he had been sent to find for Athiän. The first thing Raith did was to send for his friend.

Enikő’s meets Athiän at her only child’s wedding and the attraction is strong and real. The only problem is, he is half her age. She doesn’t want to come across to the world like a cougar, yet she can’t keep her distance.

Athiän is a High Elven Lord in charge of a vast area deep in the wilds of a mountain range. Athiän has searched the Elven Empire over for his Life Mate but she is not there. He knows he has one. Then Raith summons him, Athiän’s Life Mate has been found. The moment he looks into her eyes, he knows it is true. Only question is, can he persuade Enikő that their love is real?

My Chat with Anders!

Hello and welcome!

I have a surprise visitor and I wanted to share with you.

I hear a light knock on my door and open it just as anther is about to be added to the first one. The first I notice is that the person standing before me has very long grey hair, the second is that he isn’t human. He is an Elf… and what an Elf.

When I don’t say anything, he begins. Eniko? Cambria sent me here, I also brought you a present from Athïan.

As this gorgeous Elf presents a huge bouquet of starflowers I give an excited squeak. Athïan never forgets.

I hold my arms out and they are suddenly filled with hundreds of freshly opened blossoms, and the whole house is filled with their fragrance.

With a smile so wide it threatens to stretch my cheeks even more, I invite this unknown Elf into my home. Come in, any friend of Athïan’s is a friend of mine.

To make things easier, he introduces himself, I am Anders, Cambria’s Life Mate. I believe you have met her.

I nod, I definitely have, and she must be ecstatic that the Fates chose you for her.

Ander’s laughs, I assume you approve. Cambria and Athïan told me what to wear. As Anders says this, he turns to show off his perfect physique, and I give a sigh. He has on the tightest pair of leathers. Did I hit it lucky with Athïan or what? He knows exactly how to make a girl smile, even when he isn’t with her in person. Not going to talk about the time we spend together… a girl doesn’t tell… right?

As I put the flowers into vases, I ask. Did they have other messages for me?

Not really, Anders admitted. Although, Athïan says that if you are interested, I am to bring you for a visit for the weekend.

I stop in the middle of putting the last of the flowers into a vase and stare at Anders as I quickly ask, When do we leave?

As soon as you get home on Friday. Everyone realizes that you live a double-life for now. Athïan isn’t terribly happy about it, but he says the two of you will have lots of time to spend together in the future. But that doesn’t mean it will ever be enough. Anders explains.

I am ready to leave when you are, I declare. Besides, I want to see what is going on in the Empire. Call me nosy.

Anders laughs, No wonder Athïan looks so happy all of the time. But you can’t go now, you have a workweek to finish.

Oh, I pretend to feel suddenly ill. I can’t go to work. I need the touch of Athïan’s healing hands.

Anders offers, I can take care of anything that ails you, unless that is of a personal nature, then that is up to Athïan.

I reply. My problem is definitely something that only Athïan can fix.

Well, in that case, I guess the sooner we leave, the quicker you will feel better. Do you need time to pack before we leave? Anders wonders, as I head for the door.

I grin at Anders as I reply. All I need, Athïan can provide.

Anders doesn’t question what I am talking about, or my motives. He is only too happy to leave now, for it means he will be back with Cambria that much sooner.

Wasn’t that sweet? So I will keep this short as I am out the door now and don’t worry if you do not hear from me till after the weekend. I will be very busy 😉

Lead on my galant messenger, I am ready for some hugs from my Life Mate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anders hails from The Tratchar, book 5 in The Guardians of the Empire by M. A. Abraham and is releasing tomorrow, March 5, 2021.

Cambria is a highly powered Tratchar, and her task is to take care of the Sentinels, in the same way her ancestors did, many millenniums before. She is good at her job and proud of what she does. She is also deadly as she is beautiful.

Anders isn’t one of the elite among the Guardians of the Empire, but he is happy to be numbered among them. To him, it is a point of pride. For, although he is one of the younger dragon shifters, he figures he has lots of time to develop.

All thoughts of his status, however, disappear into the mist when he sees a pretty young Elven female create a tree out of a seed she holds cupped in her hands. He watches in awe, as the small tree forms, and then loses all that he is to her as their eyes meet, for she is his life mate, and he can tell she is as aware of what he is to her as he is to her.

You can read Chapter 1 here. Find buy links here. Add it to your Goodreads TBR list.

Check out the beautiful paperback cover. It pops, doesn’t it? I love it! Amazing work, Cora Graphics!

My review: 5-star
A great addition to the series showing us how things are progressing in the Valley and the Guardians finding their Life Mates. Cambria and Anders are so good for and with each other. A few surprises await the reader, I know it will be well received.

I hope you will give it a try. I really enjoy the series, but then again I always feel good when I visit the Elven Empire.

Surprised by my Life Mate ❤️️

Hello and welcome!

Oh did I have a surprise yesterday… read on!

I wasn’t sure what I had expected, but it certainly wasn’t to be surprised at work on the Friday before Valentine’s Day by the deliver of two dozen of the most beautiful roses I ever seen. A handwritten note accompanied them …

Eternity for us begins in a few short days, my one and only true love.

Now what is a girl to think? Was it meant to be ominous? Should I be afraid? Or should I look forward to what was about to come with great anticipation? I have to admit the red-tipped white roses were definitely original, and I wondered at the meaning behind them. They smelled divine though, and nothing like the hothouse flowers found at most florists.

Sneaking away from work a few moments early, I arrived back at my apartment with a sigh. I was looking forward to an evening of relaxation, and this being a Friday, I could make myself comfortable without having to concern myself with going to work tomorrow. I thought about what I was going to make for dinner and what to do after on the elevator ride and walking down the hall, and was about to put my vases of flowers onto the ground when the door opened before me. It was my son.

Mom, I think you better get in here.

I was afraid to think about what could be wrong, although, with the way things were going anything was possible. I entered the apartment and almost dropped the vases. There was a golden glow on the perimeter of the apartment, and it didn’t resemble the home I had left in the morning. Where there should have been the interior of my apartment, there were multiple rooms that opened into a clearing in a forest. There were flowers everywhere; even the trees were in bloom, being fruit trees of various types. The aroma of cherry and orange blossoms seemed predominant. Dotting the landscape were rock gardens that held my favourite flowers and all were in bloom in various shades or red, pink, and white. To the side was a patio with a garden swing tucked into a private corner and surrounded by trees.

I surveyed it all, then turned my attention to the interior.  There were flowers everywhere, I moved forward to touch one and then buried my face in it, as my son quickly took the vases of roses from me. These were Starflowers, and they were growing is wild abundance throughout the rooms.

My son spoke as I drank my fill of the essences of the flowers, There is more Mom. He led me to a balcony where a table was set up and a full meal awaited. It was set for two, and there was a note set to the side of my plate.

For you, my love, I would do much more, but that must come later. This has been set up for your enjoyment until we can be together. No one but you and your son can see the things you do here. When we are one, this will cease to exist, and your son will not remember this place. Know that what will seem like days to you will feel like an eternity to me. Accept this gift as a token of my love. I await the day I hold you in my arms.

Your true Love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So? What do you think?

My very own Life Mate is coming in a few days and you can find my story in To Love An Elven Lord, book 1 in the “To Love An Elf‘ series by M. A. Abraham. I am so excited SQUEEEE

Faced with life on her own now that her son is getting married, Enikő is not prepared to face the emptiness that looms before her. Can she face a life where there’s little more for her to do than sit on her porch, read or listen to her favorite books and maybe watch the rest of the world pass her by?

Athïan has come to meet the woman he has been told is his Life Mate. Can it be true? If so, can he persuade her they were meant to be? It isn’t going to be easy with her best friend trying to sabotage every effort he makes.

They are about to find out this is the least of their concerns, for even when they finish with their task, they learn the Elven Empire is preparing to go on a move that is bonded by fire.

My Chat with Ilène … and Gabriella and Cambria?

Hello and welcome!

Another… UHM … surprise visit from the Elves, I LOVE IT! Read on to find out the shenanigans they cooked up again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can’t believe my eyes. I am standing in the middle of my living room, wearing Christmas PJ’s, eating a sandwich, and generally looking frumpy when the door bursts open and Ilénè walks, or should I say struts, through the doorway and strikes a pose. I have arrived.

Suddenly I feel like Phyllis Diller in comparison. Ilénè should be outlawed, especially dressed in a red gown that looks like half of it was forgotten on the cutting table. She is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous in it anyway. ‘Yup,’ I think to myself, ‘She has definitely arrived.’ Sigh.

Without losing a beat, Ilénè continues. I have brought you something to make your day. Wait until you see them.

I could have groaned as I think, ‘Not another Elite Guard costume. I still have barely gotten the nerve collected to pull the other one back out of the closet from the last time Ilénè visited.’ I am not about to tell her that though.

As I bend to put my sandwich down, Ilénè waves my awkwardness away and continues. Please, continue with your lunch. She then looks at my slippers and smiles. When I look down at my feet she giggles and admits, I was looking for the pink bunnies with the beady eyes, but you don’t have them. Would you like a pair?

I must look horrified by the idea and Ilénè gives a sigh. I guess not. You are no fun at all.

I can’t help but look like I have been struck by lightning. Whatever Ilénè has been eating must be causing her euphoric mood, I wonder if she has more. I could use some of that for myself. I also wonder if it would help me look more like her.

Anyway, Ilénè continues. I thought I would bring the Eagle Claw twins to help make your day. Have you met Cambria and Gabriella yet?

My eyes grow large as I ask, You mean THE Cambria and Gabriella Eagle Claw from ‘The Legacy’?

Ilénè looks suddenly abashed. I guess I should have brought them here sooner, they are adults now and ready to meet their own Life Mates. Anders and T’Harris are so dreamy, not as much as Kestriel, but still nice. I might bring those two here at a later date if I can pry them away from their Life Mates. You are the type to really go for T’Harris. He is pure gentleman with a touch of drop-dead male thrown in. Well, more than just a touch, but don’t tell Kestriel or Gabriella I said so. Anyway, here they are, Gabriella and Cambria.
If you only knew how much T’Harris IS my type.

As Ilénè introduces them, two nearly identical Elven females walk through the door. I can tell which one is which though. Cambria is dressed in green and Gabriella in red. They are both absolutely beautiful, and I can tell they are equally deadly in their own way.

With a slight bow, I welcome them to my home. Please come in.

Cambria looks devilish as she replies, As it is so close to Christmas, we have brought you gifts. This is from an Elf who goes by the name Athïan, he says you will get to meet him in the future and he is looking forward to it. He says I am to tell you he picked each bloom personally, and they are the best of the lot. Cambria hands me a huge bouquet of Star Flowers, and they look as well as smell heavenly. I move quickly to find something to put them in and Cambria conjures a cut glass vase for me. It only takes a moment for me to put them in water, which Cambria insists on purifying.

Gabriella watches the proceedings with collected amusement. When things settle again, she holds out a package that is about as long as my hand and forearm together. I think you may need this, but watch how you use it.

I rip open the wrapping and find an Elven knife and it is exquisite. How did she knows I love knives? As I am about to touch the blade in pure wonder, Gabriella warns, Be careful, the edge is extremely sharp.

I give a fixated nod of understanding, even as I watch blood pool in the palm of my hand from a tiny cut on a finger.

Gabriella looks embarrassed, while Cambria touches the cut to heal it. I told you not to make it that sharp. I doubt if she did much more than barely touch the edge.

Gabriella defends herself. I didn’t think it was THAT sharp. I have much sharper ones in my arsenal at home. I am sorry Enikő. She then turns to Cambria and Ilénè and warns, You better not breathe a word of this to Athïan, I have enough problems with that Elf. He is so full of himself.

You have bigger worries than Athïan coming up, Gabriella, Ilénè reminds her. Your story is about to come up, but first we deal with Cambria’s. A thoroughly Elven look enters Ilénè’s eyes and she smiles at her friends as she quietly confides in me. You will feel much better about how you look right now in a year from now if you see them again. She then runs her hands down her svelte body and purrs, Of course I will be the one with the curves all in the right places.

My eyes grow large as I look at Ilénè, and she gives a smug grin as she whispers, You already know that Eagle Claws breed like rabbits, but you will learn more about these two at a later date.

Gabriella looks daggers at Ilénè, as does Cambria, and Ilénè heads for the door. It is time for me to leave. Enjoy the rest of your visit. Ta-ta.

There is no rest of the visit as Cambria and Gabriella tear off after Ilénè, only the sound of threats coming from the twins, and the sound of Ilénè’s laughter. Before it goes quiet, I hear Ilénè’s voice in my mind, They are so much fun when they are like this.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you can see, the Elves did their usual whirlwind entry and exit, leaving me bewildered and amused at the same time. I should be used to them by now, but nope… and I love every minute of it. Ilene visited me before when this book was part of the KaLiCon 2019 bundle, a present from few of the authors participating in the event. If you missed that chat, check it out here. You can also read an excerpt there too 😉

You will get to see more of their escapades in a new novella in the Guardians of the Empire series by M. A. Abraham , The Legend, releasing December 20, 2020.

A short story from the Elven Empire where I would love to move once M.A. convinces one of the Elven Mages to open a portal for me 😉

cover designed by me 😉

Born with the same talents as her illustrious ancestor, the High Lord General Gabriel Eagle Claw, Gabriella grows into her powers. It is not an easy road for the young Elven girl to walk, for as Gabriel’s father had expected great things from his well endowed son, so does her father expect the same things from her.

Cambria is Gabriella’s twin and partner in crime. She is a Tratchar with as much talent as her ancestress, Eden. With her best friend at her side, Ilénè, the Dark Elven Princess, they seek to ease the path that has been set out for them.

This is a coming of age story of how the Legacy of the Eagle Claw family that was missing from the Eagle Claw lineage returns. It is a symbol of power and might no one in the Empire has seen since Gabriel commanded the Combined Armed Forces.

My review: 5 stars
It was a great peek into Gabriella’s childhood and have a better understanding on why she is the way she is as an adult. The three friends are a hoot. I recommend it with 5 stars and not just for the ones following the GOTE series, as it can be read as a standalone too. A new reader would get a taste of the amazing stories the author can spin.

Make sure you sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

To celebrate the release, Ms. Abraham will gift one of you with the ebook copy of The Legacy. Tell me which cover of the series is your fave. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments after 3pm EST on release day, December 20, 2020. Good luck!

My Chat with Lorenth… and Marious…. and Gabriel ?

Hello and welcome!

You would not believe what happened to me last night! Read on and find out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With my son at a sleepover, I was finding myself at a loss for something to do. With the thought of doing as little as possible, I shut down the computer, stretched out on the couch and thumbed through a list of movies I didn’t feel like watching. This wasn’t getting me anywhere. Perhaps I should read or listen to a book, but even that didn’t appeal to me. So, what was I going to do?

A light knock on the door settled my problem. Entertainment had arrived!!! Hopefully. I went to the door and open it and would have squealed in shocked delight, if a hand hadn’t shot out to cover my mouth to stop me. MARIOUS!!! The moment Marious removed his hand, he lifted a finger to his lips to signal for silence.

Marious grinned as he whispered. I have a surprise for you.

I was so excited I could have bounced. What did you bring me?

Marious chuckled as he instructed. Close your eyes and back into the apartment. I will show you in a moment.

Dare I hope? I could feel my inner-self wiggle in excitement.

I take a step back and hear the sounds of people entering the entrance area, before the door closes and the lock gives a click.

You can open your eyes now. Marious allows.

I can hear the smile in his voice and know this is going to be good. I open my eyes and notice a man that bears a strong resemblance to Marious in front of me. I look at the two of them and smile. There is a strong connection to Gabriel between them too. With a light teasing manner I comment. So it is true that the Eagle Claw lineage breeds true.

Marious and the Elf I believe to be his father laugh, then Marious answers. You know it. This is my father, Lorenth.

I quickly offer my hand in greeting, and Lorenth bows over it, before tucking it into the crook of his arm and escorting me into my living room.

I understand you are interested in hearing certain things about my illustrious brother that only we would know. Lorenth chuckled.

I am immediately interested. My readers would certainly be interested in knowing more about him.

Lorenth laughed and a dangerously amused glint appeared in his eyes. You know my stick in the mud brother used to have little or no sense of humor at all? Nor did he give me any credit for adding on to his extensive education about the members of the female sex. I had him tutored by the best.

I raised an eyebrow at Lorenth and asked. Dark Elven Squad members are the best?

Lorenth smirked as he answered, For what Gabriel needed to know, there are none better. He learned to appreciate his gifts after a few ambushes. Of course he would never admit that in public.

I smiled as I ask, You sure about your facts?

Lorenth grinned and asked, Which of many are you asking about, the Dark Elven Elite Squad? I checked them out personally during my formative years. I man needs to know how to treat a woman in bed. I am sure Eden appreciated his technique.

I doubted it, but hey, what do I know. Then again, considering how these Elven men are built, how could Eden not?

Lorenth smiles as he watches me for a few moments, then offers. If you are interested, I can send one of the Dark Elven men to teach you a few lessons for when you meet your own Life Mate. It makes life very, very interesting.

Marious clears his throat and taps his father on the shoulder. I think you are getting carried away, Dad.

Lorenth shrugs and brushes the matter off. Depends how agreeable Enikő is. Then he turns to me, What do you think? Would you like to get lessons from a Dark Elven male? I can promise you that you would be still smiling in the morning, much as the girls used to put a smile on Gabriel’s face. He was such a sourpuss.

I laugh and reply. As tempting as that sounds, I think I better forego the pleasure. But what is this about a Life Mate of my own?

Marious sighs and mumbles, Sagan is going to kill you.

Sagan? I can’t help but wonder what the alien god has to do with this. I open my mouth to ask and I hear pounding on the door, followed by a voice much like Lorenth. Lorenth, are you in there spreading lies to our friend?

Marious grins maliciously as he opens his mouth to answer. Lorenth gives him a warning look and his smile turns smug as he mouths a reply. You are so busted, Dad.

Lorenth shoots Marious a look of knowing and replies. You ratted me out, you miserable fink. You are such a dead Elf.

Marious chuckles as he replies. Bite me. He then called out. In here Uncle Gabriel, I tried to stop him, but you know Dad.

The door flies open and Gabriel walks through. There is s menacing look on his face. The last time you did anything like this I spent three days dangling from a tree. I am not going to let you get away with it again.

Marious murmured from the side of his mouth at his father. Busted, big time.

Lorenth doesn’t look like he cares much as he smiles at Gabriel and spreads out his hands. We have barely had time to say hello.

You told her about the Elite guards, didn’t you? Gabriel growled.

Me? Lorenth asked innocently.

A moment later, Gabriel slung Lorenth over his shoulder and walked out of the room with him. Marious snickered as he watched the two brothers walk out of the apartment. I look at Marious and ask. What is going to happen?

Marious laughed and answered. The last time Dad pulled something like this, Gabriel told him that he was going to tie him to the underside of the back end of a horse.

I nearly choke at the image that brings up, then look up at Marious with an incredulous expression. Gabriel isn’t serious.

Marious laughs as he walked out of the apartment, and before he closed the door, he promised. I will send pictures, although don’t expect them to last long before they disappear. If Gabriel finds out about those, Dad will have company.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you probably know by now, the Elves are unpredictable and I never know when and how they will come by. I love every minute of their shenanigans.

Check out book 1 in the Elven Legends series by M. A. Abraham releasing October 20, 2020 and find out about Gabriel and Lorenth.

The moment Gabriel’s father, Tyrian, looks upon his son he knows the child is destined for greatness. It is something he is determined to train him well for, as he knows the Fates never give gifts of this magnitude without a reason.

Danaë, Gabriel’s mother knows her mate well enough to fear for the way he will teach their son. Tyrian isn’t the only one aware of the heavy hand of the Fates. She does as well and is determined to shield him from the harsh road he will be forced to travel. It is a dream that will be denied when she is killed in battle when Gabriel is only six.

It is the beginning of Gabriel’s climb to power and how he comes to be known as the fiercest warrior in the Elven lands. He is both feared and respected by friend and foe alike. In war Elven Warriors shout their battle cry, ‘Eagle Claw’ as they race to attack their enemies. Their enemies quake at the sound as they know who they will soon face. He is Gabriel, High Lord General of the Combined Elven and Fae Armed forces, and he has no equal in the land.

You can read Chapter 1, click here.

Pre-order links found here.

Gabriel is one of the most favoured characters in the Elven Chronicles and his followers will be delighted in learning more about him and his past.

If you are not a fan yet of Ms. Abraham’s Elven stories, I hope you will give the series a try and become one too.

My review: 5 stars

I really loved the book and finding out more about Gabriel, it really gives a better understanding of him. I cried reading how he cared about his men after the battle, when he stopped and talked to the dying Elf. Loved seeing Marious again, he was my first love in the Chronicles. Spending time in the Elven Empire is like going home.

Sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

To celebrate the new release, Ms. Abraham is offering an ebook copy of ‘The Eagle Claw Legend’ to one of you. Sexy Mr. Random will choose a winner from the comments on release day after 3pm EST. GOOD LUCK!

To Love An Elf Series – Cover reveal x 2

Hello and welcome!

I AM SOOO EXCITED I could burst EEEEP I don’t know how I resisted waiting this long LOL

I am so happy to reveal the covers that I designed for the first two books in a new series by one my fave authors, M. A. Abraham.

The series is about the Elves finding their Life Mate in the human world. Guess who gets their very own Elven Life Mate ? ME. Yes! ME 😀 SQUEEEEEE

To Love an Elven Lord

book 1 of the To Love An Elf Series

Raith is tasked to look for Life Mates in the human world. The moment he sees Enikő he knows she was the one he had been sent to find for Athiän. The first thing Raith did was to send for his friend.

Enikő’s meets Athiän at her only child’s wedding and the attraction is strong and real. The only problem is, he is half her age. She doesn’t want to come across to the world like a cougar, yet she can’t keep her distance.

Athiän is a High Elven Lord in charge of a vast area deep in the wilds of a mountain range. Athiän has searched the Elven Empire over for his Life Mate but she is not there. He knows he has one. Then Raith summons him, Athiän’s Life Mate has been found. The moment he looks into her eyes, he knows it is true. Only question is, can he persuade Enikő that their love is real?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The second book is dedicated to a dear friend who we lost three years ago, she was one of the biggest Elfanatics from the very beginning, The Wolf Lady, and she will also find her Life Mate in…

To Love an Elven Healer

book 2 of the To Love An Elf Series

Raith who is tasked to look for Life Mates in the human world makes a second connection, although the situation is very complex.

Fran is an elderly woman, which is not the issue. She loves her children and is reluctant to leave them for what she thinks is an illusion, and she is dying of cancer.

Geraint is a Wild Elven Healer who rescues orphaned wolf pups and lives in the wilds of the Elven forest. Geraint receives a message that Raith has found his Life Mate, and doesn’t stop to think of the difficulties involved. To win Fran’s heart, Geraint is willing to do anything.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There will be a few more of the Elfanatics chosen to find their Elven Life Mates. Once the covers are created for them, they will be revealed here on the blog. I do not have release dates yet for the books, but I will share as soon as I know.

Stay tuned!

My Chat with Ilénè … and Kestriel?

Hello and welcome!

I had plans, but as usual the Elves had other ideas… see what happened earlier today 😀

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I look up from my editing as a knock sounds from my door. Before I have time to respond, the most beautiful woman I have ever seen saunters through the doorway. Wait a moment… I locked that door. This tells me it is another of MA’s characters, which should be interesting at the very least. She is an Elf, I can tell by the pointed ears and the number of weapons she carries like so much jewelry on her. She has dark hair that falls in waves down her back and past her waist, her complexion is luminous, her lips are full and red, her body is firm and toned with curves all in the right places. And she is dressed in some sort of uniform, or at least part of one. This tells me she is definitely a Dark Elven Elite Warrior.

My mystery guest looks at me with a sultry expression and, in a voice that I would kill for, asks. Enikő?

I let the husky, full-throated sound flow through me with appreciation before I answer. I am Enikő. I can tell this woman is used to being in command by the way she quickly takes over.

I am Ilénè, my guest announces in a matter of fact tone, then adds. I have a gift for you. A few friends and I went shopping. We also had something special made up for you. I think you are going to like what is in the box.

Ilénè walks into the room with a rolling gait that I know would make most men’s eyes immediately focus on her hips, and I quickly begin to clear the top of my desk. I get the feeling that anything liquid or breakable better get moved out of the way fast. I am right. I barely manage to get this done when Ilénè places a big box on the top of the desk and over any other paperwork I hadn’t been given time to gather. I hope nothing gets mixed up amongst the papers, especially the manuscript I was working on. The pages of the book under the box aren’t numbered and if they get mixed up it could be a nightmare to figure out.

The moment Ilénè drops the box on my desk she looks at me expectantly. I look at the large garment box, then at the excited gleam in Ilénè’s eyes and ask. If I untie the ribbon, will something pop out at me? I know from reading about Ilénè that she has a fun loving personality. She also hangs around with questionable characters, mainly the Eagle Claw twins. This means anything can happen.

Ilénè chuckles, and promises, This is not a practical joke.

I notice that the bow on top is as much for decoration as anything else. The cover of the box just slips off of the bottom. I place the top of the carton to the side and see what looks like half of a ton of white tissue paper inside of the bottom half. Alright, so I exaggerate a bit, but not by much. It doesn’t take me long to notice that there is a smaller box in the middle. I open it to find a pair of red stilettos. They are gorgeous, but I will kill myself if I ever try to wear them. How do girls walk in them? Give me Birkestocks or barefoot is even better. I look further into the box and then pull out a red costume. I figure it must be a costume, either that or someone forgot to pack part of the outfit into the box.

Ilénè laughs joyously as I look for more pieces to add to the clothing, then speaks. There is no more. We heard you were planning to take a trip to our lands and wanted to make you feel welcome. To do this, we have made you an honorary Dark Elven Elite Guardian. Welcome to the group.

I stammer. I don’t know what to say. Thank you doesn’t seem quite enough to cover it.

A moment later another knock sounds and Ilénè calls out. Come in if your nose is clean, stay out if it isn’t.

An Elven male walked through the doorway and I feel my knees weaken. He is blonde with hair that is every bit as long as Ilénè’s. He is wearing a blue coat with gold buttons and braiding. He is also drop-dead gorgeous.

Ilénè smiles, as the man stiffly walks into the room and she bursts out in laughter at his awkward movements. Enikő, meet my Life Mate, Kestriel.

I smile as I greet him. How do you do, Kestriel. I know he is a High Elf, so I figure I need to be a bit more formal in my greeting.

Kestriel nods at me in acknowledgement, then turns his attention to Ilénè. What did you do to my pants? They are so stiff they threaten to crack if I try to bend. I also can’t get them off.

Ilénè’s smile widens, as she replies. I am not sure. Cambria gave me something to help hold the creases in place.

Kestriel looks at me apologetically, then bellows at Ilénè. Do you have any idea how uncomfortable this is?

Feigning innocence, Ilénè responds. I would have starched them for you, but you weren’t happy about my efforts when I starched your last bit of laundry.

Kestriel grouched. Those were my shorts. I may be wearing that rash they gave me for another week.

Ilénè looks so pleased with her handiwork, as she agrees and asks. Would you like me to kiss it better?

Kestriel suddenly stiffens visibly. Then, with a nod, he picked Ilénè, slung her over his shoulder, and headed for the exit. As he moved forward he bade me farewell, but I could tell his mind was on other things.

Ilénè smiled as she waved goodbye, as she hung upside down across Kestriel’s shoulder, then called out. I will tell Cambria you loved your gifts. In the meantime, I believe I am being taken away to receive my just punishment for deeds I plan to work harder to improve upon. Ilénè then winks.

As the door of my office closes, I can hear Kestriel’s hand connect with Ilénè’s leather clad rear. It is followed by Ilénè’s shriek, then a giggle.

I look down at the red leather outfit that I am still holding in my hands and wonder that it is still there. The same uniform looked stunning on Ilénè, but …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the ‘chat’, I know I did 😀

Ilénè and Kestriel are from THE WARRIOR, book 4 in the Guardians of the Empire series by M. A. Abraham.

Ilénè is a Dark Elven Elite warrior of repute, one who knows her worth. She has led her father’s elite squad for the last one hundred years, but she is getting tired of the constant drill. She has decided it is time to settle down and have a family. The question is with whom?

Kestriel was raised in the way of the ancient High Elven people, and he serves as one of the Guardians of the Empire. It is an honour and one he appreciates to the fullest. He has no intentions of soiling his hands on an Elven female of questionable repute. Until he meets Ilénè.

The moment Kestriel meets Ilénè, he knows he has met his Life Mate. The trouble with this is that he grew up with the impression that it was the male who should be the aggressor in a budding relationship, not the woman. What is a poor Elven Dragon shifter to do?

My review: 5-stars
I loved Ilénè ever since she appeared in the series. A warrior I admire not only for her skills but the way she treats her close friends. Kestriel was a surprise, a High Elf mated to a Dark Elf? I had to read this story. His patience is what made me love him, she puts him through his paces. They find their HEA, but not without a few bumps. 5-star read as usual, the author puts her signature twists in at the least expected times.

You can read chapter 1 here.

I know you will enjoy it too, I hope you will give the series a chance.

There will be a 3-day event on Facebook to celebrate the release of The Warrior, come and join in! Follow the link. Awesome author and narrator spotlights on August 14 and 15. On August 13, M. A. Abraham will have contests and games from 12pm to 8pm. There is also a Rafflecopter Giveaway ending in 2 days, so make sure you enter.

To celebrate the brand new release. Ms. Abraham is giving away an ebook copy of The Warrior. Sexy Mr. Random will pick the winner from the comments after 8 pm on Thursday, August 13, 2020.
