Genre: Erotic
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Release Date: Mar 1 2013

Arthur Penner is more than happy to aid a lady in need of help, especially if the woman is targeted by his nemesis Vance Hollister. The fact the lady in question turns out to be not only a powerful witch, but a gorgeous red head with a wealth of curves that don’t quit? Even better.
What he isn’t prepared for is the discovery that the woman just happens to be his reincarnated Queen Gwenivere, and worse, she has no memory of who he is.

His well-ordered life is crumbling around him as yet another surprise turns up in the form of his reincarnated sister. It seems the past is swallowing him whole, forcing him to let go of previous betrayals and trust once more.

Gwen McAllister finds herself between a rock and a hard spot. Drawn to the quiet strength and confidence of Arthur. It isn’t until her memories are savagely restored by a vengeful goddess that she realizes who she is and the bitter betrayal she caused. Even her familiar, a mouthy Himalayan named Salt seems to be against her, demanding she trust the very man she destroyed with her life.

A new threat is rising, one which will plunge the world they know into darkness. To defeat an old enemy they must depend on each other and learn to forgive. A tall order and time is running out. Can they let go of the past and embrace the promise of a future or will they lose everything in the ultimate battle between good and evil?
Balancing Act!!!! Managing Writing with Everyday Life.

I know very few authors today who don’t have the problem of completing deadlines and still handle the demands of their everyday life. I’m no exception. Though I dream about the day when I can spend more time writing it hasn’t happened yet. Hope springs eternal. J
In my life multi-tasking is a survival technique I do without thinking. My weekdays start out at five am. I get ready and go to my day job. I am lucky enough to have an office job that allows me to work on my stories during breaks…when I have them. My job is a bit demanding and I can find myself doing countless tasks which are always priority one.
My day continues after work at four-thirty with promo for new releases and any blogs I may have to set up for the week. Then at five-thirty, I bathe, put dinner on and prepare what is required for the next day at work. By seven, I’m finished with dinner talking to hubby about his day and am ready for more work. I write until ten or ten-thirty, at which time I promptly crash.
Now, that’s in a perfect world this routine goes without fail, but I’m also the president of my local RWA chapter, which has demands for my time, and I’m the head organizer of a reading event we are putting on in October called Hot Mojave Knights. Now, I have countless Skype calls to throw into the mix.
On the weekends, I have various meetings to go to along with a house to clean and a husband to spend time with so I don’t normally return to my study to write until five pm. Yet, even with the hectic schedule, I am able to get out a book at least every six months. This year it will be more since I now work on three projects, jumping between them writing one scene, then on to the next book, etc.… On the weekends I usually get up at seven and don’t call it a night until three am or so. That way, I can put in some serious word count and for a writer, it’s all about how many words you can get onto the page for a rough draft. Second draft is a different beast all together and takes much more diligence in honing the story so it’s cohesive.
When working second or final drafts I don’t sleep much as a rule needing as much time as I can get to polish it before submitting. This is where my husband, bless his heart, is a great help. He usually takes over some of the chores around the house and leaves me alone so I can work.
The one thing that keeps me sane is the fact at least I don’t have to juggle children into the picture. I truly don’t know how they do it. My day job is demanding enough! When I decided to make writing a career, I knew the hours and sacrifices I would need to make to see this through to fruition. This is my business and like any business, it takes a lot of juggling to make it work. For now, this is what is required.
I can’t think of anything I would rather do than write. I love what I do and that’s probably why I don’t think about the juggling act I just find the time to create my stories.

Growing up she was the dreamer in her family, something not always thought of as a positive thing. As a child she would draw and build stories around her pictures, so writing was a natural extension for her. Recently a family member told her that from now on she would encourage those dreamers she knew. Stating with hard work and focus dreams can come true. Shannan Albright is proof that dreaming can be a positive thing.
When not writing she spends her time between oil painting and reading. She loves writing paranormal, urban fantasy, historical and fantasy romances because of the world building and rich characters she finds. She loves dark, edgy heroes and heroines overcoming impossible odds internal and external.
She is a "hopeful" Romantic who believes a healthy relationship built on respect and a strong partnership is the key to a happy ever after.
