Since Eclipse of Her Heart is coming out in less than 8 days now available! (YAY!), I thought I would start letting you know all about it :)
As many of you know, I have a fascination with books and libraries, which is what started off my Library Tales. My fourth Library Tale was Through the Library Door. When I finished Through the Library Door, it was not a short story but a novella and I instantly had new ideas for more books just like it.
The Markham Library Series started in that moment. Each book in the series is unique - the only thing that stays the same? The secondary characters and the fact that the hero or heroine finds their partner through a book in a library. In Through the Library Door, Landria found Nicholas by stumbling into his novel and having him follow her back through the portal into her world - which happened to be the house of her aunt Jennifer Markham.
In Eclipse of Her Heart, Serendipity Jones (otherwise known as Seri) has come to work at the world's largest erotic library collection - owned by Jennifer and Peter Markham. From the very beginning, strange things happen. While in the library, she hears erotic passages that leave her wanting more. When she runs into an intriguing man, the passages change to being about and with him. It does not take long before she falls for Joshuan. The only problem? He is meant for another at the next solar eclipse. Can she protect her heart before the sun falls silent?
Here is a small excerpt from Eclipse of Her Heart. I will be the first to say, this is my LEAST kinky book under this name. Ever. There are several erotic scenes, but only 2 are kinky - and they are two of the passages Seri overhears in the library. No matter how much I tried - neither Seri nor Joshuan turned out to be kinksters - at least not that they would share with me. But they are a sensual pair.
This snippet is from the beginning of the book:
Looking out the window of the small plane, Serendipity Jones could not believe her good fortune. For the first time in her life she was off on an adventure. Growing up in the sagebrush of southern Idaho, she had dreamed of going somewhere exotic but always felt it was a pipe dream. Previously, none of her dreams ever came true. Even her dreams of going to a fancy school like Harvard University were put to rest the day she received both its rejection letter and the acceptance letter from Boise State. But now…here she was on her way to an exotic island to study erotic literature. She considered pinching herself for the third time since finding out, but she had bruised far too easily from the first two. She had good reason to doubt. Girls from her home town never amounted to anything. And yet, somehow she had been chosen to receive an all-expenses paid internship to work in the library at Castle Maxim.
As far as her eyes could see, ocean stretched out before her. Having almost drowned at the age of five in a lake, she was not partial to water any larger or deeper than a bathtub, but even with that fear, she was so excited about her opportunity that she was able to keep her mind off the question of what would happen if the plane went down.
“Miss Jones, Isle Maxim can now be seen on your left,” the captain hollered over his shoulder.
Nodding, even though he could not see her, Serendipity—Seri to her friends—cautiously unbuckled her seatbelt and moved across the large seat to peer out the left side of the plane, quickly fastening herself back in. As soon as her eyes fell on the patch of green in the distance, she let out an excited squeal, clasping her hands together. Now that she had spotted her home for the next fifty-two days, she could barely wait to get there.
