Today it is my distinct pleasure to have my wonderful and talented friend Colleen Love as my guest. Colleen's agreed to share a preview of her next release, Eden at Twilight. I've read this one, it's breath-taking and beautiful, so mark it on your "must have" list and keep watching for the release announcement!

Coming soon from The Wild Rose Press!

EDEN AT TWILIGHT is the story of Lily, a woman who wants love, and Leaf, the man who risks it all to love her.

Lily Moore is an ordinary accountant who works long hard hours, leaving room for little else. After strange occurrences begin haunting her, she’s convinced by a motherly friend to take a vacation in Scotland . While there, she meets the man of her dreams, a handsome stranger with shifting hazel eyes.

Leaf falls for Lily the moment he sees her, love at first sight. Never has a woman taken his heart so quickly. When trouble stirs and threatens her, he stands by her side, traveling through time and dimension to reclaim her from a deadly Drow leader. Lily has no choice but to trust him and hope his strength will pull them through. But is his strength alone enough?


Lily was glad when the plane ride was over. A feeling of awe surrounded her as the shuttle pulled into the drive of the cottage. It was as if she was entering into the picture on her post card. After paying the driver and stepping from the car, she stood looking around in an enthralled stupor. The scents, sounds, everything was just as her imagination had promised it would be. Shading her eyes against the late afternoon sunshine, she just couldn’t help standing motionless, looking at her dream come true. She finally moved to pick up her luggage without taking her eyes from the grand Cottage before her. It was as if she were afraid it would disappear before she could get inside, if she took her eyes from it. Reaching down, she fumbled for the handle of her suitcase, her fingers meeting the warmth of a large hand. Her attention suddenly snapped from the scenery unfolding before her and back to reality. A reality snagged straight from her dreams. Standing in front of her was a kilt-clad man waiting with her luggage in hand. Her eyes wandered upward and she unconsciously pressed her hand over her heart when her gaze locked into his sharp, hazel green eyes. Yellow flecks, hypnotically kept hers transfixed for a brief moment before she could tear them away. She blinked and her heart stood still, time seemed to have stopped.

“I’m Leaf,” he held out his free hand to her. “I’m the caretaker here at the Country Cottage.”

Lily took his hand in hers and felt it wrapped in calloused warmth, “I’m Lily,” she breathed. Unwarranted chills chased over her skin from his touch. The thick burr of a Scotsman lilted in his voice and a warm smile curled the edges of his lips, making deep dimples at the corners. A rough dark scrub of stubble blended into wild sand colored, wavy hair that stopped just past his shoulders. Releasing her hand, he turned to pick up her bags. The flex of muscle pulled his plain white tee shirt taut, and she felt her breath catch when his kilt rode up the back of thick, stout thighs and white socks peeked out from the tops of his tall work boots. He turned and waited for her with baggage in hand. Picking up her smaller bags, she followed quietly, praying he hadn’t noticed her ogling him as she blinked her eyes and physically tried to will her heart to slow.

  2. Thank you for having me, Denyse.

    This is such a special book for me. I really enjoyed being in this fantasy world and writing it!

    I can only hope others like it too!


  3. Hi Colleen! Hi Denyse! I got to say first, I so love a MIK (Men in a Kilt) that cover is fab! And a time travel!! It so sounds perfect Colleen! I love so how unique they are because of how you have them TT. But too, its a favorite too because I love historicals! Do you write historicals too Colleen? I shall be checking your site out too!

  4. I love to write different historical pieces, but they tend to lean into the fantasy realm.

    This story has a lot of surprising twists and turns in it. :D I don't want to give anything away. hehe.

    I am finishing an erotic Historical Fantasy right now that I call Tribal, rather then Native American, because I couldn't stick to the traditions of one tribe. I love all of them. So, because of my inability to stick with just one Native American tribe, I pulled together traditions from as many tribes as I could. Even adding a bit of paranormal in. Because, well, I just cannot live life without a touch of magic. : )

    Thanks for checking out my site! If you have time, leave a comment. I love reading them! : )

    Thanks for stopping by!

    The excerpt has me hooked! And I love the cover, Colleen; a beautiful horse and a hottie in a kilt... What more could a girl ask for!!


  6. Thank you Jen!

    I will hint and tell you that the horse's character is after one in our herd named Daycon.
