Great news, this award-winning romantic science fiction series, up until now only available in eBooks (all formats), is coming to print. WHITE TIGER came out in paperback earlier this year, and RED LEOPARD was just released in print two days ago.

Each book can be read separately as a unique story, but above is the proper order. Notice that NOAH'S ARK is a prequel. It comes firt, but it was published last, so it will also come last in paperback. BLACK JAGUAR is scheduled for paperback release in February, and the other titles will follow promptly in 2013.

Find the books at AMAZON  -  B&N  -  ARE  -  SONY  -  KOBO  -  and everywhere else.


In charge of the fortress of Kassouk in the King's absence, what is Terek to do when a Goddian spacecraft lands in his medieval backyard, and the striking woman leading the galactic party insists on colonization?

Galya, the Goddian Princess commanding the geological vessel, is bent on finding a crystal with unusual hyper-conductor properties. And the futile resistance of the local population isn’t going to stop her. Not even that defiant tribal chief nicknamed Red Leopard, like the infernal feline that follows him everywhere.

Terek and his band of swordsmen and felines must defend their people’s freedom, no matter the cost. But with this unexpected arrival, an old prophecy surfaces, taking new meaning and carrying a new threat... When political intrigues, greed, murder and betrayal tip the scales, whom can Galya really trust? Her fellow Goddians? the Mutants bred to serve her race? or her primitive Human enemy?

"action packed, fast paced story... I can't wait to read the next book in the Chronicles of Kassouk series." 5 angels - Fallen Angel Reviews

"This book was so good. The plot, characters, setting, everything was laid out in detail; vivid and believable. I was completely lost in the world Vijaya created and loving every second of it."
- 5 stars - Shawna K. -

"Packed with action and adventure. Galya ... a tough warrior... a sweetness about her that makes her easy to like... I loved how Rascal was Terek's faithful companion and defender throughout nearly the entire story... I really liked Red Leopard." - The Hope Chest Reviews

Hope you try this series if you haven't already. Either in eBook or in paperback.

Wishing you the greatest holidays.

Shadowed Dreams

Book 2 of the Shadow Series has released.

Matthew has braved the war and near death with one thought in mind… Rebekah. He won her hand in marriage, and now he has a few short months to make her see how much he loves her. How much he needs her. Given the wall she's put up between them, he prays he'll have enough time.

After fleeing the war, Rebekah is determined to go west to Oregon, only to be turned down when she tries to join the train. Matthew's proposal of marriage, in name only to help her west, becomes the miracle she needs. Loving him as she does, she dreads the idea of letting him go once they reach Oregon, but how can she ask him to stay with her, to love her? How could he love her once he's found out her secret? She must guard her heart and his.

Enjoy an Excerpt from Shadowed Dreams

What was he thinking? Did he want to kiss her again? She sighed just thinking about it. She couldn't allow it even though she wanted him to kiss her. Her body swayed in his direction. 

He let her chin go instead. "We should get some rest. We leave pretty early." 

Rebekah nodded in agreement. She started to ready herself for bed and stopped when she thought about the sleeping arrangements. Panic rose in her. 

The suite had two bedrooms. Caroline was in one room. Andrew slept on the small bed in this room. Only one larger bed was empty. Matthew had already removed his boots, panicking her further. 

"Where are you sleeping?" Her heart thundered with fear. 

He looked up at her. If she didn't know better, he was embarrassed. Maybe he didn't want to sleep with her either. Strangely, that bothered her. Ninny. He shouldn't sleep with you. He... She should explain. Tell him why she was so frightened. 

"If you don't mind, I thought I'd sleep in here with you. With my wife." 

While it relieved her he was going to sleep with her, it scared her at the same time. She stood quickly. "But I..." She wanted to protest. She didn't have to. 

"I remember our bargain, and I'll keep my promise. I'll be the perfect gentleman. I'd sleep on the couch, but it's rather small, and I need a good night's sleep. Besides, it'd look better if I slept here. We are supposed to be married." 

Rebekah was being silly, and she knew it. It was true. The couch was too small as was Andrew's bed. And Matthew couldn't very well sleep with Caroline. She wouldn't allow it. Maybe she could sleep with Caroline? No, she was his wife. He had a right to share her bed at least. If she went to sleep with Caroline, her cousin would inundate her with questions. Questions she had no desire to answer. 

"All right," Rebekah hesitated. "You promise?" 

Matthew removed his shirt, stretched slightly, and laid out on the bed. Rebekah wondered if she shouldn't divert her eyes. "I promise." He crossed his heart, and patted the empty space beside him. Trying not to look at the strapping muscles or the dark silk hair on the firm chest of the half-naked man reclining on the bed, Rebekah crossed the room. Amazed herself she didn't trip. She considered rolling a blanket for a wall between them, but quickly got under the covers and turned her back to him. 

Matthew lifted himself up on one arm, and looked down at her. "Is that what you're sleeping in?" His voice held the hint of play. 

"Ah... yes... ah, I'm quite comfortable." She stammered and didn’t look at him. "You?" 

"I'm fine." He leaned in. His lips close to her ear. "However, I'd be happier if you'd remove your... shoes." He laid back. She was certain he was grinning like a polecat. 

"Oh my!" She hadn't realized. He must think her quite the fool. She shot up, quickly removed her shoes, and laid back down. "Sorry." 

"It's fine." He leaned over her again. "Rebekah?" 

Her heart raced. Now what did he want? There was no way she was removing the dress. "Yes, Matthew?" The bed moved again as his body shifted. He was so close she felt his warm breath softly touched her neck. 

"Would it bother you if I kissed my wife goodnight?" 

"I… ah… guess not." She felt like a bigger fool. She rolled a little until his face was just above hers and then closed her eyes. 

He laid whisper-soft kisses on each of her cheeks. Then tenderly kissed her lips. A short, sweet kiss. 

"Goodnight, Rebekah," he whispered. He pulled back from her, blew out the lamp beside him and laid back. 

"Goodnight." The frown she felt went clean to her soul with the disappointment his kiss hadn't lasted longer. She was disgusted with herself because she was disappointed, and that she'd even considered his kiss in such a manner. Why… she was nothing but a brazen woman. He deserved better and that was that. She fell asleep reminding herself of the reason Matthew should never care for her.

THE HUNT -- YA Fantasy Series -- EPIC Finalist

The EPIC Awards is for excellence in electronic publishing. This year's winners will be announced in March at the annual EPICon awards banquet in Vancouver, WA.

For information on electronic publishing, EPIC, and the EPIC Awards, check the EPIC website.

"The Hunt" is published by Writers Exchange of Australia.

What's it about?

The Hunt are children, refugees from another dimension, who have been sent to Earth by their families, the ruling clans of their world, to protect them and their Talents from the galactic despot, Gahlmorag. Given into the protection of the Hounds of Hamin, the children have been separated not only by miles, but by time -- and now they are just starting to find each other.

In BUTTERFLY, Beth remembers that she is a member of the Hunt and her future duties. As she remakes herself from overweight, clumsy, invisible geek to battle-readiness, she gains the attention of the wrong people in her high school -- including a new champion, Tommy DiCorsi, the black-garbed "bad boy" of the school. Tommy and Beth learn from each other as they stand up to her enemies ... and when another member of the Hunt shows up and complicates her situation almost beyond control.

Highland Games Through Time-Book #2 is OUT!

As I mentioned in my post on Sept. 10th, my new series is called Highland Games Through Time. I have set the stories in both  present day, at Scottish Highland Games, and in 16th century Scotland. I am pleased to announce that the second book in the series is out! 

My Banished Highlander, though readable as a stand-alone novel, does contain characters introduced in Book #1, My Honorable Highlander.

My hero in the second book is not so honorable! I combined my love of Highland Games, which I visit quite extensively, and all things Scottish. My hubby owns two kilts and belongs to both the Gunn Clan and the MacBeans. Here is some insight into this book:


With a letter in her hand and a Highlander at her back, what could go wrong?

When his clan convicts Cameron Robeson of treason in 1598 Scotland, the last thing he thought his cousin the Laird would do was banish him to the future. With a certain woman on his mind, he plans revenge while surrounded by the sights and sounds of the modern day New England Highland Games. His plans go awry when a comely redheaded lass wearing the Mackenzie plaid lands at his feet.

Iona Mackenzie is worried about her friend, Haven, and searches for answers among the tents at the games. Whom can she trust to help? Her father? The handsome blacksmith? Or, the tall, golden-haired Highlander? Romance takes a back seat because saving her friend is her priority, no matter how great Cameron can kiss.

When a magical amulet and an angry sorcerer send this unlikely couple back through time, more than one heart will be broken. Danger, intrigue, and threats surround them, and feelings between Iona and Cameron grow hot and steamy. They fight the sorcerer and search for Iona’s friend, the woman he vowed to steal from his cousin. Will the strong-willed Highlander and the present day witch stop fighting long enough to listen to their hearts?

Tami has invited me to join fellow authors who have written a series and post the information here for all to see. Now that I have a series out, I am proud to join them!

A little background: I chose to set my series at present day Scottish Highland Games then gave them a paranormal twist using witches, Highlanders, and time travel. Why you ask?

For many, many years, my family and I have volunteered at the New Hampshire Highland Games. My husband has been giving his time for this huge three-day event for nearly 30 years! Ideas for a story were all around me, so I combined the sights and sounds of the athletes, bagpipes, marching bands, ethnic food, and colorful costumes to create my story.

My characters find themseleves flung out of their 'comfort zone'. What fun! Present day people are tossed into 16th century  Scotland, and 16th century Scottish hunks find themselves walking through the 21st century. It was fun to see these people struggle with what happens next.

The first book, My Honorable Highlander, was released last May and was my third attempt at Self-Publishing. I have books out with two publishers, but I had such success with my first attempt at 'doing it all myself' with my novella Dragon In The Mist, that I wanted this story 'out there'. The series, Highland Games Through Time, took off!

Bumbling present day herbalist, Haven MacKay, gets more than she bargains for when her love spell goes awry, is cast back in time, and meets her true love -- Laird Kirkwall Gunn.             

Kirk’s plans go slightly off course when he falls in love with a woman wandering through the Scottish Highlands. After all, he has pledged to marry another, from an enemy clan, in order to end a century-old feud.

SEDUCING SIGEFROI, Curse of the Lost Isle Book 3 - by Vijaya Schartz

Find it in kindle at $3.99

This is Book 3 of the Curse of the Lost Isle medieval series, and it is out today in kindle. If you don’t have a kindle, you can download the free app from for your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

The first two books in the series are available in kindle, and I highly recommend to read them first, as it’s the story of the heroine’s parents in Scotland, and it also explains what happened to this heroine and her sisters in childhood.


Luxembourg - 963 AD - To offset the curse that makes her a serpent from the waist down one day each month, Melusine, exiled Princess of Strathclyde, must seduce and wed a mortal knight, the shrewd and ambitious Sigefroi of Ardennes.
Sigefroi, son of the Duke of Lorraine, suspects Melusine is not what she appears, but her beauty, her rich dowry, and her sharp political skills serve his ambitions. He never expected her to soften his stone-cold warrior heart.
So close to the Imperial court, dangers and intrigue threaten Melusine. War looms on the horizon, a Mermaid was sighted around Luxembourg, and Sigefroi’s bishop brother questions her ancestry. If anyone ever suspects Melusine’s true nature, she will burn at the stake...

Find the Curse of the Lost Isle in kindle – Like the pages - click on the category tabs. Thanks a bunch.


Happy reading!

The Curse of the Lost Isle wins hearts and ribbons

The reviews keep pouring for PRINCESS of BRETAGNE. This one is a 4-ribbon from Romance Junkies. it says:

“Her attention to the harsh conditions of this violent time period is spot on, and starting with a brutal Viking raid caught my attention immediately. She brings the world of Pressine to life with vivid details of daily life, clothing, customs, manners, Celtic history and the conflict between the early Christian church and the old pagan beliefs of the goddess.

This story is filled with action and danger and there are many interesting secondary characters that help drive the plot forward. I particularly like Gwenvael, Pressine’s brother, who has extensive scenes in his own viewpoint scattered throughout. Look for the just released, PAGAN QUEEN, to continue the saga of these two lovers.”

This review certainly made my day.

The Telomere Trilogy

Book 1: Revelations of Tomorrow
The crew of Daring Star salvages a load capsule and finds the beaten body of Jetta McCree. Turns out Jetta's discovered her employer has developed a biochemical droplet and is contracted with terrorists to manufacture on a large scale. Captain Noah Bonney fights off corporate security forces, her ex-husband's pirate fleets, and carnivorous beasts to keep the young woman safe and transport her to the safety of the Imperial Home Port.

But the adventure brings to surface demons Noah's been suppressing and secrets from her people's history she's tried to forget. Now, she must face them if she's to reconcile with her daughter and keep the love of her life from leaving. With 450 years under her belt and nothing but eternity ahead of her, she's built a thick shell… one she's not sure she can break.

Read excerpt: HERE 

Book 2: Echoes of Regret
Fredrica Casales, relieved her participation as an undercover agent for the Imperial Guardians is over, strives to rebuild the trust she's lost with Captain Noah Bonney. But the terrorist plot was only the start of their journey. Now the Daring Star and Lady Victory crews must rescue the scientist who holds the Telomere cure before the very stability of the Galaxy unravels.

If that wasn't enough, Fredrica must work with her former Imperial contact, Jace McCree. As for Jace, he tries to keep a promise he made long ago, but as his sister grows sicker he's conflicted as to what decision he needs to make, and what to reveal.

As they cross the Galaxy, battle rogue Watchers, and fight soul sucking space creatures, both Fredrica and Jace must come to terms with their regrets and decide whether to open their hearts. But fate has its own timeline, and not always at the convenient time.

Excerpt: HERE 

And Coming October 2012
Book 3: End of Eternity
Luna thought her journey away from her people's world was over. Now, she's forced to join their lost daughter in her journey with Captain Noah Bonney's crew to learn why these women coexist with men. Something unbelievable to the all woman race. Adding to the confusing change in Dokkaebi directive and teachings, is the presence of the gold-eyed man that stirred something in her heart. A forbidden attraction that goes against all her teachings and her people's ways.

Damani Wassack isn't happy with the situation either. Telomere Watchers lead secluded and separate lives. Yet now, he and the other watchers must come to the surface, show all their secrets and work with outsiders. If that weren't enough, he can't get that sneer from the man-hating warrior woman out of his mind. Or her fierce dedication, strong spirit, and sense of duty and honor. The package is appealing, and completely impossible.
