The anthology I’ve been working on with these three talented writers – Anne L. Parks, Annie Rose Welch, and Lashell Collins – releases tomorrow, May 14th! You have one more day to pre-order it on Amazon for the low, low price of $.99. I’ll make it easy for you if you click here.
It’s an Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance anthology about four sisters who rule the elements air, fire, earth, and water. They are forced to live apart to keep the Mother of All, Gaia, from finding them. Gaia, who created earth, is set on destroying it to start over from scratch. Since we humans haven’t taken good care of her precious planet, she wants us all destroyed, while the elementals who have lived among us, want to see us survive.
Tomorrow, all four of us will be doing two takeovers on release day to celebrate this new and unique release. What does that mean? It’s going to be like Christmas day come early. If you didn’t get what you really wanted for Mother’s Day – BOOKS, BOOKS, and MORE books – then you’ll want to make sure and click below to take part. And since we’ll be on twice during the day, everyone will have a chance to join in. The first takeover will be earlier in the day on Love Between the Sheets *Facebook page. Please, note the time zone and enter here to join.
Then, in the evening you can join us on Maria’s Book Blog *Facebook page. Please, note the time zone and enter here to join.

You might be asking what is so unique about this anthology? Well, it begins with the four authors (me included) who each have our own different writing style that gives a unique perspective on each elemental goddess and the world she lives in separated from her sisters. Despite the miles between them, they are as close as ever and striving to get back to see each other again. And to save the humans they have grown to know and love. How about a sneak peek at the sisters with a synopsis of each story…
Four sisters wielding the power of the elements.
Four men who have vowed to protect them.
One mother’s quest to destroy them.
Experience the power of love in season.
The Prophecy (Spring):
Escaping from her mother, Gaia, Creator of All, was only the beginning for Aria Spring. Staying hidden will require protection from the one man she doesn’t trust to save anyone but himself. Responsible for breathing new life into the dormant world, Aria is determined to save it, and her elementals sisters from her mother’s vow of destruction.
Disbelieving the tall tales his father and grandfather told when he was a child, Eiden refuses to acknowledge his family’s legacy as Protector of the Spring. The draw to Aria, however, is too great for him to resist, and he finds himself unable to stay away from her. When he sees her powers in action with his own eyes, he can no longer deny the fierce need to protect her – even if it costs him his life.
Bayou Bleue (Summer):
Été Munson is the fiery daughter of Gaia, the Creator of All, and the reason the season of summer exists. But when Gaia decides the Earth is too ominous to keep, her plan sends Été into hiding in the mystical town of Bayou Bleue, Louisiana.
Enter Bear Glenn. A mysterious voyager who has come from Scotland to find Été before Gaia does. As she brings Bear into the Heart of the Swamp, a land filled with Bayou Trolls, Silent People, and the legendary Rougarou, their Fate will be tested, along with their will to survive.
Connected Souls (Fall):
Autumn Munson lives a simple life. As simple as a goddess in hiding can, that is. One of the four Elemental daughters of Gaia, Mother of All, she’s the very embodiment of the fall season. But when Mommy Dearest gets the crazy idea that the Earth must go, Autumn and her sisters scatter into hiding in a last-ditch effort to save the world.
William Varian is an ancient soul. An immortal shifter who has been watching over Autumn for longer than she realizes. He holds the secrets to a past that she’s long forgotten – one where they meant everything to each other. But as he fights to keep Autumn safe, will they allow Gaia to use their centuries-old connection to destroy them, or will it prove to be a bond that not even the Mother of All can break?
Cold Awakenings (Winter):
Wynter Munson doesn’t belong in Los Angeles, but what better place to hide a Winter goddess. All that sun won’t melt her frozen heart, though, after the betrayal and loss of her cheating husband.
It’s her darkness that Morpheus is drawn to. He finds the girl of his dreams inside hers. But when the Mother of All threatens Wynter’s son, he must convince her that love not only destroys lives. It can save them too.
