Dark Spell and Her Favoured Captain and Ereaders

Elizabeth Mueller's Darkspell is coming out this fall.

Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . . until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold.

As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter’s protector against the darkness that hunts her.  Violently thrust into a magical realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own.

Will love prove thicker than magic?

Elizabeth is a fellow Fantastic Friday Writer. You can find out more about her and her wonderful book at her website and her blog

Francine Howarth signed a contract for a contemporary romance due out Fall 2012. Meanwhile, she has released Her Favoured Captain, a novella, on Kindle. 

It's 18th Century England and news of an arranged betrothal shatters Emerald Lady Penhavean’s dreams of one day wedded for love. Her instinct to rebel against marriage to a man more than twice her age causes severe conflict between her and her brother, but Lord Penhavean insists she will marry the Earl of Moorby no matter what: with or without her consent. To ensure her compliant to his bidding he resorts to cruel measure and destroys the one thing she loves above all others.

Distraught, she flees to the creek with intention of setting herself free from fate worse than death. There she encounters a stranger, a young buccaneer of wise if witty countenance. Something in his eyes and tone of voice stir feelings Emerald cannot ignore, and life once again seems preferable to that of death. But how can she now return to the house and the fate that awaits her, when she knows her heart finally captured by a man she could truly love? 

Available at Amazon. Francine blogs HERE

So, seems the birthday fairy [months away] will grant me the wish of an ereader. :) I should get through the ebooks piling up on my hard drive much faster then. Any thoughts on Nook vs. Kindle or another ereader?
