I’d like to introduce you to Destiny’s Shift, my latest release, and the fourth installment in the Six Saviors Series.

Click for excerpts and reviews. And please note that the 1st book in the Six Saviors Series is free at all major ebook outlets

One hundred and fifty years ago, Warrior Jovan of the Six Saviors realized he had a gift: the ability to feel emotions through touch. Over the years, the gift has intensified allowing him to hear others thoughts, and this uncontrolled skill has forced him to keep his distance from both humans and those of his race. He fears the impact on his sanity if he doesn’t.

Liberty, an SR44 female has come to Earth by a set of circumstances beyond her control. Born into a life of servitude on SR44, she is alone, afraid, and stumbling her way through learning the customs and language of her new home on Earth. When Jovan meets Liberty, it becomes clear that they are of the same species, and Jovan takes Liberty under his wing, despite his commitment to himself to limit interaction with others.

As Liberty reveals the reasons for her coming to Earth, it becomes apparent that the Six Saviors are in danger, not only from the FBI, but also from those who have journeyed to Earth with Liberty, and they are seeking revenge. Jovan must quickly learn to control his gift, and Liberty is the only one who can help him. As they deal with danger from all sides, Jovan and Liberty must find a way to compromise on the lives they desire, or they will be forced to go their separate ways.

  1. I don’t often make New Year’s Resolutions, because I will inevitably not follow through. I have followed through with a few though. 20 years ago I gave up diet soda (I didn’t like the chemicals). I haven’t had any since. Two years ago I had a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight. I lost 70 pounds that year and kept if off this past year. No resolutions this year though!


  2. For me 2013 is a time to begin anew and just improve myself. My top 3 goals are:
    1. Laugh more.
    2. Love more.
    3. Read more.

  3. I don’t make them, cause I don’t see the point. Just try and make it through 2013 I guess that would be one

  4. My new year resolution is to finish the library room & get my collection organized…

    Happy New Year


  5. Happy New Year!

    I quit making resolutions on New Years, because I don’t seem to stick to it very well. I make short term goals throughout the year and that seems more doable.
    But if I make one today, it will be to have a better Year!!!!

  6. I do make New Years Resolutions! Of course, the first five you have already mentioned but, this year I added to quit smoking to my list! Also, to make sensible goals and to attack my TBR list with a vengeance! I’ve met so many great authors this past year!

  7. I want to have a less stressful life. My New Years resolution is to not let the ‘little things’ get me down. I want to be more laid back and just go with the flow!

  8. I normally do not make resolutions,however this year my goal (resolution) is to follow the many dreams (goals) I have set out to accomplish. It will however take longer than just this 1 year.

  9. Thanks so much for a great beginning to a New Year. For this year I need to find a job since I’m graduating college this Spring, so yup.


  10. I must lose weight- I had a knee replacement and surgery on the other knee. and a bad back, so I have not been active- I can’t work, so I am trying to increase my walking, some swimming and I have to stop late nite snacking.

  11. I just hopped here! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!
    Oh, I have too many resolutions.. one of them is to actually follow my to-do list. mehe πŸ˜€
    Anyways, thanks for giving us chance for such great giveaways! πŸ™‚

  12. I didn’t make a resolution this year. I have just decided to have more fun with family and friends and to try not to take the small things or the wonderful people I have been blessed to know for granted. Its not a resolution for the year, but how I aim to live life from now on, because tomorrow is promised to no one,

  13. No resolutions or traditions for me this year, Hubby and I stayed at home this year, we had a nice evening with the fire place going, I had a glass of wine and about 8:30 hubby wanted to watch Batman Rising. It ended just in time before the New Year for our New Year Kiss, which by the way was interrupted by our 3 big dogs who jumped up on the couch with us – LOL They were scared from the loud noises coming from the fireworks going off outside – LOL It was funny but was all good, we just laughed and realized how much love we have in our lives.

    Happy New Year

  14. i don’t make them anymore. i got tired of being one of those that made one just to break it. each year it’s been the same one, quit smoking. now i don’t make one for the 1st year and i am down to 5 smokes a day from almost 2 packs. go figure. πŸ™‚
    apparently i don’t like it when even i tell myself what to do. LOL

  15. I don’t make resolutions because if I made them I’d feel bad if I broke it. It’s better to have a plan made out during the year.


  16. I have set some goals this year
    1. Quit smoking by 2014
    2. Spend more quality time with family & friends
    3. Finally finish my 1st novel
    4. Go back to work
    5. get my own place (home) again

  20. I stopped making New Year resolutions years ago, but if I did make one it would be more a wish then a resolution. That wish would be to be able to travel to Scotland! lol

  21. I don’t make them because don’t do such a good job of keeping them! I love the
    Six savior series!

  24. My New Years resolution is to get out of these two casts so I can walk down the aisle on my wedding day (in April 2013) without the aid of a wheelchair. I fell on the ice on Wed Jan 9th and broke both of my ankles. So not the great start to the New Years that I wanted.

    Thanks for participating!

  25. I don’t usually make resolutions because I don’t keep them anyway. I really hope to lose weight and get more organized this year. Thanks for the giveaway!
