A thief working for a local mob boss gambles everything…all for the chance to love his boss’s daughter.

Timothy Sands is an experienced thief with an old gambling debt. Working for the local mob brings him face to face with a supernatural threat unlike anything he’s ever experienced. It’ll take all of his skills to complete his assignment and keep his loved ones safe. But his greatest danger will be meeting the mob boss’s daughter.

Letizia Prosdocimi is the only daughter of an influential crime boss. Her life forever changes when her father acquires a long-lost family heirloom. Not all is well since sinister events surround the amulet and her family. After being saved by the mysterious thief, she finds herself falling for him, but those who get too close to her usually wind up dead.

A shadowy entity threatens to tear apart everything Letizia and Timothy hold dear by feeding on the living and turning allies against them. Who can they trust? Only by working together will they have a chance to beat the odds…and let their love grow.

December News Update

Thief's Gambit

There’s plenty of news to share this month!

The Thief’s Gambit is on pre-order and is available at all the retailers! In addition, The Assassin’s Mark, the first book in the Edge of Oblivion series is no longer exclusive to Amazon. Give those a look, especially if you enjoy urban fantasy romance!

Something else that’s pretty awesome is I’ve started releasing Beneath the Broken Moon: Season One on Radish. If you enjoy reading on the app, be sure to check out the available episodes and subscribe to get notified when new ones come out.

I’m also excited to announce the title for Cry Wolf 7. Titles are usually harder than writing the book for me, but I’ve finally settled on The Wolf Who Kept A Secret. Hooray!

At the end of this week, I’m taking a holiday break to spend time with my family. It’s something I’m really looking forward to. But I’m delighted about the possibilities for the new year and new decade, too.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Until next time,

Sarah

Historical Fiction

vaulted cellarHistory has always been one of my favorite topics.

In college, I started out as a double major in English: Creative Writing and History with an emphasis on European History. That didn’t end up happening since I was so ready to be done with school. Knowing how helpful the time I’ve spent learning from Romance Writers of America and the internet has been, I wish I’d gone with the History major instead.

But I digress.

I’ve always loved historical romance novels and historical fiction. At one point, I didn’t feel comfortable writing them and the level of research that go into something like that. They still do intimidate me, even though I’ve written a fantasy romance series set in medieval Ireland, a Wild West paranormal romance novella, and co-wrote an urban fantasy romance that takes place in an alternate reality Ireland.

Regardless, I sincerely admire authors who write them. I’ve accepted that paranormal romance and urban fantasy placed in contemporary times is more my forte.

Anyways.

My favorite historical time period and location is Dark Ages and Medieval Europe, particularly in Scandinavia (Vikings!) and the UK and Ireland. So many fascinating things happened, and I love reading about mythology. When my husband and I have traveled, we always try to hit the museums.

There’s also ancient Greece and Rome. I’ve read a couple of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books that incorporate that time period, which were really cool.

I’m very passionate about history. Surprisingly, it’s been a while since I’ve read a historical romance or fiction. That genre is on my TBR list this year, though, since I’m challenging myself to read wide.

What are your favorite time periods to read about? Do you have favorite time periods you don’t feel are represented enough in fiction?

Leave a comment. I’d love to know what you think!

Until next week,

Sarah
