Happy Fall Reading! This is my second week of blog hopping with Books N Pearls! Kudos to Nicole Ulery for giving us an incredible month of great authors and books.

This weekend features Historical Romance. Who can resist? So I’d like to introduce my readers to the talented and gorgeous Haley Whitehall!

Haley's Author Picture

Haley Whitehall lives in Washington State where she enjoys all four seasons and the surrounding wildlife. She writes historical romance set in the 19th century U.S. When she is not researching or writing, she plays with her cats, watches the Western and History Channels, and goes antiquing. She is hoping to build a time machine so she can go in search of her prince charming. A good book, a cup of coffee, and a view of the mountains make her happy.

Drawn by the Dream Catcher

By Haley Whitehall

Genre: Interracial/Multicultural Historical Romance

Heat Level: Hot



Zachariah, a mulatto slave, doesn’t find much reason to be happy after being sold away from his mother and sister. However, he keeps having dreams of a beautiful woman with amber skin and this gives him some measure of joy. On a cold winter’s day, he is shocked to meet his fantasy woman in the flesh. Drawn to her, he feels compelled to help her the only way he can—by giving her his warm coat.

Lillian Hildebrand is a member of the Cherokee elite, but she doesn’t feel like a socialite on the Trail of Tears. After meeting the charming and kind-hearted white one held in chains, she begins having reoccurring dreams of him. As if cast into her dream catcher, Zachariah fills her dreams from that day forward. Since he continues to call to her in her dreams four years later, Lillian is convinced the ancestors have deemed they meet again.

With the help of her wealthy white brother-in-law, she tracks Zachariah to the Kentucky restaurant he helps manage. Her plans for the future run deeper than Zachariah ever imagined. Will her attempt to help him pass as white and start life anew with her on the Indian reservation pay off, or spell disaster for them both?


Exclusive Excerpt:

Her hand felt smooth in his—like silk. He couldn’t believe his hand was on her waist. He wanted to keep it there forever. Zachariah took a deep breath, but couldn’t calm his racing heart. Each step made him more nervous. They were so close he smelled her rose perfume. It was like being surrounded by the Garden of Eden.

She looked up, her emerald eyes locked with his, her lips spreading into a seductive, sultry smile.

An excited shiver spread up his spine, through his arms to his fingertips. He leaned in, his lips close to hers, inhaled her peppermint breath. What was he doing? He pulled back, his face hot.

They continued dancing and he stiffened. His face became stoic. He had to remember his place. He couldn’t kiss her.

After the sixth song, Lillian sat on the edge of the bed, her face glowing with new found freshness.

“Thank you, Zachary. I love dancing.”

“Thank you for teaching me to dance, Miss.”

Lillian lay down, stretched her arms above her head and yawned.

Zachariah shifted upon the balls of his feet and gnawed on his lip. He felt uncomfortable seeing her in that position, but he couldn’t tear his eyes away.

“It is a long boat ride. I will teach you many things,” she said. “You may go now. Shut the door behind you.”

“Yes, ma’am,” Zachariah said.

He walked into the parlor eagerly anticipating what she would teach him next.

Blog Hop!! #FallReading #bookboost @books_n_pearls


I’m very excited to be part of Books N Pearls Fall Into Reading Blog Hop! Today, I’m going to introduce my readers to Dahlia Donovan, writer extraordinaire! Enjoy her book blurbs (and buy, buy, buy!), register for prizes and follow the Books N Pearls Blog Hop to discover other amazing authors! Happy Reading!!



Dahlia Donovan

Dahlia Donovan started out working in the insurance world. After ten years, she morphed her love of investigating accidents and studying people into writing about them. She’s a bit of a hermit and despises being in front of a camera. Her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.

Her first novel, Ivy, started out as a crazy dream which she turned into an adventurous and suspenseful paranormal romance. It was followed up by Natasha, Masquerade, Twelve Days and now Alicia. A fourth main novel in the series, Lorcan, is due out late 2015.

Readers can find Under Fire, a free short story available to all her newsletter subscribers. See her website for more details.

Donovan Dahlia

Born into a Moroccan family both wealthy and well-connected, Alicia has wanted for nothing her entire life. Choosing to abandon her family business for fashion, she has built her own business and lives off the fruits of her own labour. Her traditionalist mother has longed for her to settle down with a good man.

Alicia has never wanted a good man until Josh Withers. Tired of meaningless flings, Alicia has found someone who challenges her in all the right ways. So what if he occasionally turns himself into panther?

No one’s perfect.

Now in a fight for her life as enemies from both her family’s past and her best friend Ivy’s recent nightmares come hunting for her. Alicia can only hope Josh’s military background and shifter strength will keep them safe.

Steven Samuels and his partner Gareth Richardson are called in with their company, Blackbird Security Firm, to rescue the hostages.  They never expected to find their perfect mate while saving the world.  The more the two wolves learn about Ivy, the more that they want to make her theirs.

Undercover Interpol agent Natasha Itsov is the ice queen of the European shifter world. Her reputation for loving and leaving without a second thought is well known. Until she met Darren Martel, another fox shifter. She broke both of their hearts when she ran from the bond forming between them.

It’s been years since they’ve crossed paths with each other.

The threat of the Auctioneer looming over Ivy brings the two shifters together for one last mission. Old wounds are reopened, while they struggle to ignore the bond formed all those years ago.

As the months have gone by since Ivy and her wolves bonded, hints have continually been dropped about moving in together and marriage.  It’s unfortunate then that the romantic proposal which Ivy had hoped for never quite arrived.  Her two alpha wolves instead merely demand her hand in marriage.

Suitably unimpressed, Ivy tells her gits to bugger off and hops on a private jet for a swanky masked ball in Monte Carlo with Alicia, Alim and Dane.

Can Steve and Gareth find the right words to win the yes from her lips?

You just never know who or what you’ll find at a masquerade.

There are only twelve days until the Christmas bash Ivy is throwing at Steve and Gareth’s penthouse. How much trouble can a small pack of shifters get into in less than a week? While working to plan the perfect party, she keeps her eye on all of the members of her newfamily. Each day, a different couple seems to be moving closer together, and she hasn’t even brought out the ruddy mistletoe yet.

At the heart of it all, though, this party started with a wish three years ago for only happy Christmas memories after the worst time of Ivy’s life.

Be warned, things get hot and spicy in this anthology.
