Tagline 1:  Would love unit them in purpose…or in death?
Tagline 2:    With two clans on the verge of extinction, Sapphira never expected to fall in love.

Princess Sapphira Leash was a succubus and shape shifter. She was also heir apparent in royal lineage to her coterie. Secret stipulations to her royal ascension were detailed in the Royal Grail and could only be revealed to the Princess: Sapphira was unable to assume her rite of passage to the throne until she found the perfect royal human mate that would share her bed for a purpose…but not the throne.

Failure to do so doomed the coterie.

Brock Hanley, a prince in his own right and royal protector of his father, the King, and his older brother, Bruwyn, heir to the throne, fought with strength and loyalty against those that threatened to overthrow the sovereignty with deceit and trickery.

Sapphira, on a journey as part of her secret stipulations, woke in the blazing sun on the royal sands of a distant shore protected by Brock, who discovered her sleeping. Her delicate hand blocked the glare of the sun as Sapphira rose her head from the scorching sand and saw the prince for the first time.

Would they fight, side-by-side defending all that they loved and cherished and seize their rite of passage to ascend to royalty bound by danger, loyalty and love? Or die trying?

The closer Brock Hanley gets to Sapphira Leash the harder it is for her to resist having sex with him…or killing him.

I was born when we kissed; I lived in your embrace while we loved. I died when we parted.

My mind returned to the present, a salty breaker whipping my face and stinging my cheeks.

Perhaps it was tears. Perhaps it was the surf. Either way, I was not quite prepared to think of the responsibility that lay before me…not now…not just yet…nor the looming death of my father. Not yet, perhaps not ever. 

I rode the dancing turquoise-black currents. Distracted by duty, I amused and delayed the inevitable by collecting seashells, sea-flowers and colored coral on my journey from the small island to my calling. It felt more like play than purpose, but purpose it was. And it took a lot longer to cover the distance than I expected. The ache in my shoulders, back and thighs reminded me just how long it took and how wrong I was to attempt such an unnecessary dramatic flair — to fly. 

I was also aware that, swimming, I felt so much lighter with each stroke and I recalled the sensation vividly.

As I swam, the transformation began. My tail began to shrink slowly, scales fell away like glitter into the watery depths and my short, squat legs grew and stretched, supple… even graceful… into long lengths of elegant svelte limbs. My arms lengthened with each slicing stroke into the cool salty water. The very act of swimming took on more difficulty as I lost my natural rudder. While I began the journey swimming with my arms short and squat, more under me than above me, it seemed each pull of my weight through the surf lengthened them, too. They were elongated with flexible digits at the end that extended my reach even further. I could cup them and pull myself up, or swim flexibly in figures with the current. I was becoming so different. It was glorious freedom. My flesh, now decorated, bronze and silken with a supple skin, glistened in the moonlight with a hunger to be touched. 
What was once a youthful curiosity felt more like a welling, edgy eagerness that increased with ache, passion, desire.
I could not stop myself from departing my objective and frolicking in the breaking waves, diving to the ocean floor and scavenging for keepsakes of my adventure, bits of jewels, coral, and shells to save. I enjoyed the new form I was taking on and I found it strong, responsive. I rolled to my back and lay upon the ocean surface bobbing with a rhythmic motion that was synchronous and in harmony with the ocean itself. I gazed at the moonless night sky adorned with millions of flickering secrets all teasing for attention with brilliance. I was young, but I had knowledge of a great many of the galaxies as told to me by the Old Ones in our pod. Some had come from far away, others born to the land of our fathers, all became family. Their secrets became ours just as ours became their heritage.
I let my mind wander at the sheer amazement of it all as I collected treasures of my journey. When I ascended the water to the beach through the beating surf, my new legs failed me once or twice, until I became accustomed to their use. No doubt the long swim had worked them to exhaustion. When they buckled beneath my weight, the cool sand cushioned my fall as my upper limbs braced my descent. I was so tired then and I must have fallen into a deep sleep.

The tide was rising with the morning fog and lapped at my extremities. It reminded me of the long, careless swim I had taken in the darkness. My shoulders and thighs ached. My back was twisted and sore. I knew swimming the final distance from the atoll might not have been the smartest thing I ever did, but it seemed clever at the time. This transformation was expected but I began to think that I was more romantic than I dared to admit. The distance the night before was obscured by the cover of darkness and no doubt the late hour and my excitement. Somehow, I reasoned, swimming and walking in from the surf would seem less suspicious than setting down from the black sky shrouded in darkness. There was logic in the thinking at the time. I just couldn’t see it now.

Sure, setting down at night, in the dark, obscured by a moonless night was more obvious than walking out of the surf, morning bright, the sun announcing my arrival to all who may have witnessed my arrival and naked body. Yes, that made a lot of sense. 

I raised my head and spat the salty grit caught between my lips into the sand. My lips were soft and foreign with a grittiness caked between the tender creases. I wiped it off with a tiny hand and touched my lips. They were smooth and supple. What was, at one time, a staple in my young life seemed foreign and unpleasant. I needed a bit of sand and pebbles to strengthen my bones and scales with minerals and salt. But I had no scales, no tail, no mane of course spiny, bristling red backbone. It was all too distant to me. The ribbons that once held my mane now ran though hair painted a deep red by the burning sun with an onyx shimmer from the depths of the sea. I wove my collection of sea treasures in through the strands and secured a gathering in a topknot while the tendrils of the ribbon fell down my back.

I felt so different.

Who is Muffy Wilson in her own words?

I am a wife, mother, daughter and sister first and an author of provocative romance about love, sex, hope and passion second. I was born in Texas to traditional parents. With two older brothers. I was the youngest, the family "princess," indulged and pampered. My father was a career Colonel and pilot in the U.S. Air Force which required our family to travel extensively. I spent my formative years in Europe and 'came of age' in France (a state of affairs that gave my father much cause for concern one loooong summer on the Italian Riviera!) which forged my joie de vivre and love for books, writing and education. I liked Aldo a lot then too.

What is one thing you would like the world to remember you for?

I am a simple person. I would like to be remembered as a good person, loving wife and nurturing mother. I never met a stranger nor turned anyone away that needed help. And I have tried hard to learn from my mistakes but I am not always successful in that endeavor!

What got you into writing?

An old boyfriend from high school.  We reconnected after all these years and he writes self-help real estate books. And I was selling real estate on the side, so we still had a lot in common. That said, I took a significant departure from self-help to provocative and paranormal romance.

Are you a full-time author or do you have a day job as well, and if so, what do you do?

When I first started writing fiction in 2010, I was still working (I was a Regional Director for IBM, owned a resort on Washington Island, Wisconsin, and have been a General Manager for high end retail furniture) but I have since retired and devote most of my free time to writing, my family, my pups and anything that will keep me from doing any housework!!

Where do you get your greatest ideas for writing?

My story lines come my life and from ordinary people: watching them, listening to them, talking to them about dreams, romance, passions ~ about their regrets and when they lost their heart, their virginity...a loved one. And then, somehow magically, I'll have a dream on one of those many nights I cannot sleep and a story title will come to me. It always starts with the title for me. Always. That's the piece that takes root, grabs me and blossoms.

What is your ‘Writing Routine’, if any?

I sit in the living room with my husband, when he does his crossword puzzles, and I write. And write. And write. His questions about clues and comments about the news or a movie often go unanswered when I am in the "zone".

Tell us a saucy/intimate/personal story about yourself.

Well, I was almost 36 when I got married. A child of the 60's anf 70's, I had a very free way of thinking about men. I thought men were healthy--at least for me. Since I worked in a man's business world, I lived my life much as men do when it comes to romance. And when I met the man that would steal my heart, I never looked back.

What are your Top (10?) Writing Tips? Writing Advice?

  1. Never start with a prologue or the weather, but start.
  2. Don’t worry if your first draft is any good; it won’t be. Just start.
  3. Write every day, at the same time for the same length of time. Self-discipline is only a routine. But you gotta start…So start.
  4. Write what you would like to read, from your heart. And start.
  5. Allow yourself to change your mind. Change is a reflection of inspiration — and growth. A new perspective. But start.
  6. Name your work immediately and give it life, honor, position, credibility, purpose. You’ve started!
  7. Keep notes of anything favorite, interesting, or inspiring: names, titles, phrases, descriptions, music.
  8. Each new voice requires a new paragraph. If you can, only use “said”. Anything else is "fluff" wastes ink pretentiously. I'm still learning that one! Get started!
  9. Be kind to yourself. Your work may not be great or Nobel material, but it is yours. Accept that your voice will change and evolve, but it is still yours. Start!
  10. There is no secret to writing. But there is an enemy — procrastination. Just start… Always start.
