May Full Moon Book Giveaway


May Full Flower Moon

Flowers bloom in abundance during the May Full Moon. A wonderful time to walk in the evening garden, perhaps with a glass of port. Beware. 'Tis magic in the garden on a full moon. Faeries gather and dance and cause mischief. And on full moons there is an opening within the veil between realms, time, and space.

Do you believe in faeries? 

Full moons are important to the Highland Gardens series. To celebrate the May Flower Moon, I will give away a Kindle Edition gift certificate for Just Beyond the Garden Gate to two lucky readers, commenting on May 25, 2013. Do you believe in faeries?

Just Beyond the Garden Gate

A Highland Gardens Novel

Kindle Edition available at Amazon

The Scottish Highlands—a place where faeries and brownies and other fae creatures dance through time. On occasion, so do mere mortals.

Determined to regain her royal status, a banished faerie princess accepts a challenge from the High-Queen of the Fae to unite an unlikely couple while the clan brownie attempts to thwart her.

Passion ignites when a faerie-shove propels burned-out business consultant Laurie Bernard through the garden gate, back through time, and into the embrace of Patrick MacLachlan. The arrogant clan chief doesn’t know what to make of the lass in his arms, especially when he recognizes the brooch she wears as the one his stepmother wore when she and his father disappeared.

With the fae interfering at every opportunity, the couple must learn to trust one another while they battle an enemy clan, expose a traitor within their midst and discover the true fate of the missing parents. Can they learn the most important truth—love transcends time?

Journey from the lush gardens of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the Scottish Highlands of 1509 with Just Beyond the Garden Gate.

  1. Hi Dawn. I believe in faeries and like to think that once in a while, we might be getting a little help from somewhere special. Can't wait to read this book! Sarah-hoss@hot mail.com

  2. Hi, Dawn! The rational part of me doesn't believe in faeries, but the creative, unboxed part of me certainly does! Either way, I love to read about them. Just Beyond the Garden Gate sounds like great fun! :-)

  3. Hello, Sarah! Whether it be faeries or angels, we can all use a little help. Thanks for dropping by.

  4. Hi, Leslie. Sometimes we need to let go of the rational and go with the creative imagination. :) Thanks for visiting.

  5. Woohoo! Sarah and Leslie will receive an email gift certificate for 'Just Beyond the Garden Gate.' Stop by on June 23 for another Full Moon Book Giveaway.

    Darn...I'm a little late for the party! But yes, I believe...the rascals sneak into my YA on occasion:) All the best! Love your website; colours and Mountains of North Carolina.

  7. Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for the kind words. Make sure to stop back on the next full moon. I'll be giving away a couple more books.

  8. Dawn Marie, THANK YOU for the gift certificate for Just Beyond the Garden Gate! I didn't expect it, and that made it even more of a treat! I downloaded it and will start reading it in my next free moment. ;-) I plan to make one of those happen later today.
