Sarah Munro's Lemon Ginger Tea

In my upcoming release ONE DARK WISH, the heroine Sarah Munro is an 18th century historian searching for the truth behind why Rebecca Prioleau, a 16-year-old Puritan girl, was accused of witchcraft and murdered in Savannah, GA in 1699. 
Unfortunately, this search attracts the attention of a savage arms dealer and the leader of the Fianna, a mysterious group of assassins. Her interest in Rebecca's murder also brings her in contact with the hero, ex-Green Beret Nate Walker.

While Sarah and Nate race against time to solve the mystery of this young girl's murder and to save Nate's men (a group of disgraced ex-Green Berets desperate to regain their honor), they fall in love. It is a romance, after all!

Before the story starts, Sarah has spent years studying Rebecca Prioleau and one of the things she discovered is that Rebecca was considered a healer. In order to get to know Rebecca better, Sarah collected as many of Rebecca's recipes and recreated them for her own personal use…

My Writing Space! By Alyson McLayne

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ Recently, I was asked where do I write? And I thought, what a great question! So here it is…pictures included (no Jaspers were hurt during the making of this post!). I write at home mostly, which means when my kids (twin 7-year-olds) aren’t at school, on a play date, or out with their dad, I write around them. So basically, I wear ear plugs. A lot. And I relocate from chair to chair and room to room. A lot. I’m kind of like a writing vagabond, moving around the house carrying my lap top, charging cord, coffee, muffin, phone, pens, highlighter, story outline, and ear plugs looking for the quietest place to write. I drop stuff. A lot. I don’t really have an office or a desk because I use my laptop as an actual (gasp!) laptop. Any comfy chair can become a work station for me. But I do have a recliner in my bedroom that I’ve had for years and years. The kids call it mommy’s writing chair. I’ve added a little bookshelf and drawer unit beside it, and I can put things on the dresser …

Seeing the World as Art

I love to take photos! I take them of everything! Flowers and animals, insects, and landscapes, buildings and even sometimes people. They can be beautiful just the way they are. But sometimes, they're even more fun when they have a little bit of Photoshop magic applied.

Sometimes I can take shots that are beautiful just by themselves, but sometimes there is too much clutter and what can you do? Photoshop magic!

Have a wonderful day!

Today I changed out the water filter in my fridge. Not a hard thing to do, but back when I was married, I'd have asked my (ex) husband to do it. Fixing things I considered his part of the relationship, and he was happy to do so.

Fast forward many years, and I'm happily single and happily independent. I have fixed my garbage disposal, small odds and ends, and today I changed out my water filter in the refrigerator despite having tried before and failed. I'd even ordered the parts myself for the more than 10-year-old appliance.

Big deal, you might be thinking. But to me it's not. Granted, it wasn't at all difficult to fix the fridge, but I had to find the model number, get the right part, then install it myself. When you're in a relationship with someone who likes to fix things, it's easy to sit back and let them. But when you're single and not wanting to part with one more cent than you have to, being independent is a huge deal.

I wrote about an independ…

One Dark Wish and a Recipe for Sarah's Soothing Salve

It's so hard to believe that the book I wrote last year, ONE DARK WISH, will be on sale on September 24, 2019. Less than two months until the second book in the Deadly Force series comes out!
In this romantic suspense story about ex-Green Beret Nate Walker, a man desperate to regain his honor, Nate meets his beautiful-yet-stubborn heroine Sarah Munro. Sarah, a renowned historian determined to save her faltering career, is looking for proof that a young woman accused of witchcraft in 1699 was innocent of murder.

While studying this young accused witch named Rebecca, Sarah discovered that Rebecca had been a practitioner of 17th century herbal remedies. Sarah has not only spent years searching for proof exonerating Rebecca, but she's also learned how to recreate many of Rebecca's teas and salves.

After Sarah meets Nate, and sees that he suffers from migraines and was burned weeks earlier (in EVERY DEEP DESIRE), she offers him one of her herbal teas and rubs a soothing salve on h…


The wait is finally over! HIGHLAND CAPTIVE is  out in the world!!! And to celebrate, I'm having a giveaway for ALL 4 BOOKS in The Sons Of Gregor Macleod. 

Last night I was sitting in my family room trying to get through the last push of promo, blogs, and my newsletter before the clock struck midnight and HIGHLAND CAPTIVE was released to bookshelves and e-readers alike. My kids, because they are nothing if not helpful, were crouched in front of me, drumming their chopsticks on the ottoman and giving me an impromptu rock concert. The predominant lyrics in the song my daughter was belting out was “Babies rule!” My son was singing something about Ninjas.
At the same time.
It occurred to me that this was probably the best send-off into the world I could have given HIGHLAND CAPTIVE—Gavin and Deirdre's story—because this is also Ewan's story, the son that both Gavin and Deirdre claim.
And he would have loved it.
This story tore out my heart at times—more so, possibly, …
