January 2015

Elizabeth grew up in the cloistered haven of a convent orphanage. As an adult she has longed for excitement and passion, but her one experience with a man turned out to be an embarrassing disappointment. She is ready to forget men altogether now and focus her attention entirely to the expansion of her education.

The unexpected arrival of a new English teacher threatens to unbalance Elizabeth's plans. Raleigh Hunt is direct and imperious and in every way conceivable the kind of American Elizabeth and her friends would rather mock than take seriously. But something about this man affects Elizabeth's emotions, and the more time she is obligated to spend with M. Hunt the more difficult it is for her to stop thinking about him. When a seductive nobleman expresses his desire for Elizabeth she faces the hardest choice of her life: to accept the nobleman's courtship or surrender herself to the passion stoked by the stern M. Hunt.

*Note to readers: this title was previously released by the now defunct publisher, Red Rose Publishing. This new and unabridged version is the only authorized edition of this book.

The Story of Odette: The Swanmaiden’s Unveiling

What began as a short story in the story collection Sexy Beast VI continues in Anya Howard's novel, The Story of Odette.

As the swanmaiden’s daughter, Odette was orphaned at a young age when the forces of Charles Martel laid siege to her village and tribe. She was left helpless to the whims of a vengeful half-sister, Vanda. Some years later, however, Odette’s fortune changed when Vanda’s sympathetic husband escorted her into the refuge of fabled Athla. It is a realm sacred to the gods, where only a few mortals are allowed entrance -- and the power-hungry Vanda is not among them.

Odette now finds the acceptance and love she’s always craved, and upon entering adulthood she is also educated in Athla’s sacred disciplines of passion and surrender. Unknown to Odette, however, Vanda has pledged her aid to the vampire priests of Loki, who want the swanmaiden’s daughter to sacrifice to their deity. To this dark end Vanda recruits a handsome soldier named Cu’lugh to enter Athla’s borders and bring Odette back. Cu’lugh sets off to Athla, ignorant of Vanda’s true motives and the dire fate intended for his quarry.

But what neither the vampires nor Vanda know is that Loki seeks more than a mere sacrifice. This father of lies and chaos awaits release from his ancient prison and to exact revenge on the gods who confined him there. Killing Odette is only the first step in Loki’s malevolent agenda -- to destroy hope, happiness and love forever in the world of mankind.

When the three venture secretly to a fair outside of Michael’s dominion, Roselyn witnesses sensuous sights that remind her of the frustrated desires she has always ignored. That night Roselyn is introduced to the Mummer King, a forbidden masked figure whose duty is to carry petitioners’ requests to the old pagan gods.

But upon returning to Prince Michael’s castle Roselyn is confronted with an ancient evil that has been unleashed on the court.
