I enjoyed Cursed and have been waiting impatiently for the next book in the Fallen Siren series. When I saw Captured, a prequel, up on Amazon, I didn’t hesitate to click the “Buy” button. And why would I? This suspenseful read is FREE. If you enjoyed Cursed, too, or just want to get to know the characters before diving into the series, you have nothing to lose to snatching is up! Plus it will tide you over until the October release of Reckoning. Read more

I asked where I could get one of my own, too, so I’d be styling at the horse shows. Unfortunately, I think I’m out of luck. Read more
