RELEASE DAY! Spirit of the Lake

Today Spirit of the Lake releases in print and ebook through Wild Rose Press and other book outlets.

This is the second book of the spirit trilogy set among the Nez Perce. I received the first review on it yesterday from Nocturne Reads.

Don't forget to follow my blog tour listed to the right and you could win an autographed copy, a sweatshirt, and cowboy chocolate.

Blurb for Spirit of the Lake:

Two generations after his brother became mortal, Wewukiye, the lake spirit, prevents a Nimiipuu maiden from drowning and becomes caught up in her sorrow and her heart. Her tribe ignores Dove's shameful accusations—a White man took her body, leaving her pregnant, and he plans to take their land.Wewukiye vows to care for her until she gives birth, to help her prove the White man is deceitful and restore her place in her tribe.

As they travel on their quest for justice, Dove reveals spiritual abilities yet unknown in her people, ensnaring Wewukiye’s respect and awe. But can love between a mortal and a spirit grow without consequences?

Excerpt

“You are not eating.” The deep voice laced with concern spun her shivers into waves of heat.

She opened her eyes and studied the man standing in front of her. His broad shoulders blocked the sun. Even with his eyes filled with concern the lines beside his eyes, which deepened when he smiled, remained. His full lips were perpetually tipped at the corners in mirth. The lightness he brought into her heart just by his presence, she had not felt since realizing her family believed she brought the sickness to her mother. No one had ever gazed upon her with such favor.

He knelt beside her, glanced at her stomach, and questioned with his eyes.

She nodded.

He placed a hand on her stomach. “You must gain strength.”

His encouraging words brought a smile to her face as his hand slowly moved in a circle. She studied his face, searching his eyes, skimming across his angular cheeks, ending at his full, inviting lips.
