Teaser!! An excerpt from Forever Darkness, Book 3 in the Black Rose series

“You continue to astound me my love, you really do know me so much better than I know myself sometimes. I often wonder just how you could possibly love something so terrible as me? I’ve been a mess ever since the day we met and yet you stayed through it all. What would I ever do without you Harry?” Cate asked, wrapping her arms around him tightly and snuggling into his chest, breathing in his gorgeous natural scent deeply. It still surprised her that he could possibly smell the same even after all these years in Hell, and him now being so far away from the human man she had known all those years ago. And yet, when she closed her eyes and took a deep breath, Cate felt as though she were transported back the almost one-hundred years to his small flat and their tiny little secluded existence on Earth together. She could still picture their small home clearly, hear the sound of the birds singing in the trees outside, smell his freshly laundered bed sheets as they lay wrapped in each other's arms under them and she could even imagine the spring sunshine as it streamed in through the open window and shined in onto his glorious, sexy body. Thinking back to those days made her smile and as she looked up into his deep blue eyes, Cate couldn’t help but fall madly in love with Harry all over again.
“Was there ever any doubt in your mind, any question of what I was willing to do or how much I would take in order to be here with you Cate?” he asked, running his strong hands through her long, dark curls and then planting a deep kiss on her red lips.

“Never,” she admitted as he pulled back from his kiss, smiling again at last.

Book 3 is on its way!!!

Black Rose Series Update -

Well, finishing touches have been made and the final draft is now off for proofreading & to betas for their feedback :-)
I'm so excited to be cracking on with my Gothic romance series, I can wholeheartedly understand that this is not for everyone, especially the rather sordid and harder elements of the story but so far those who have rolled with it have understood my reasons why and have continued on from book 1 (Embracing the Darkness) to book 2 (A Slave to the Darkness) with gusto!

Book 3 - Forever Darkness is due for release 1st September, pre-orders are being taken already via:

Thanks for reading, much love xxxx

Hi everyone,
It's amazing to see that there are people viewing my blog, how would you like to interact a little more?
Maybe you'd even be interested in reading my novel? It is free on smashwords at the moment (through to July 31st) so you can grab one in whichever format you prefer and even pick up a half-price copy of the second novel in the series, A Slave to the Darkness.
In case you're new to me and my books, I'm currently writing a gothic/paranormal romance set of books called the Black Rose series.

You can find me on amazon via

Real life getting in the way of art!

Hi everyone,
Thanks to all the new viewers for stopping by, feel free to post comments if you like, it'd be great to meet people from all over the world with a love of all things dark, gothic, romantic and if you're anything like me - just downright strange!
I've been having a bit of a struggle with everyday life at the minute, narrow-minded and childish people being the main reason for it. I fail to understand the human brain, especially women, sometimes. Why is it that when someone is happy and is quite literally 'living the dream' do other people feel the need to belittle them for their own benefit? I get it, they aren't happy with their own existence and so are envious of those who are doing well for themselves or who are succeeding in an otherwise hard world, but seriously? Are we still in the school playground with the Queen Bee sat atop her throne while her minions all buzz around her and if you dare to be different you are shunned and treated like the worst person that Queen, and subsequently her minions, has ever known?
If this is real life, then it is getting in my way and can get stuffed! I am what I am, I am who I want to be and I will not change that for anyone. I am not a Queen bee, and my god do I never want to be!
Live your lives people, live them for you and for your families, live them for the ones you love and who love you back because when it all ends they are the ones you will hold in your heart, not the people who tried to get in your way!
Let's build a world where we all encourage one another to do our best, I certainly plan to go out kicking and screaming :-) xxx
