Her soul is what he needs to break his curse.

Viking warrior Ragnvald Hallvardson was devastated when his fiancée was killed. In desperation, he sought help from the local witch. But instead of being reunited with his love, he was cursed with immortality. For over a thousand years, he has roamed the earth looking for that special person who can help him break the curse. And now, he may have finally found her.

After a disastrous relationship, Julia Williamson is reluctant to open her heart again. The barrier around her heart is hard to break, and she’s not foolish enough to give her love to just any man. But she finds Ragnvald hard to resist. Something about him calls to her, but can she risk another broken heart? Then things become even more complicated when her former fiancé threatens her life.

Bookmarks: The Perfect Gift

Hello friends!

Today, I want to share with you the bookmarks I made. I love bookmarks. They keep the page for us in our favorite book. I decided to make some bookmarks because I wanted something other than a business card to hold my page.

These bookmarks are made from suede leather string, metal charms and some glass beads.


I’ve also given them cute names: O Canada, Book Owl, Snow Angel, Tea Time and The Key to My Heart. I’ll be making more so stay tuned!

If you’d like to order one of them or all, follow the link on my Etsy Shop. Thanks for letting me know what you think of my beauties.



True Love: Real or Fiction?

Watching my favorite TV show last night and for the last month, it got me wondering about true love. Does it really exist? Is it so rare that not everyone will get the chance at true love in their lifetime?

As a romance writer, I always write about true love. It’s not a perfect love. It’s the kind of love you cannot explain. It turns your life and your heart upside down. And, when you are separated from the one you love, you cannot breath, you cannot live. A part of your heart and soul is missing. You think you are mad. You tell yourself, ‘This is crazy.’ So, you occupy your time with work or other activities. But, at night, alone with your thoughts, you can feel the person you love with all your heart and soul.

True love gives your life meaning. I didn’t believe this for the longest time, until I met the man I share my life with today. Somedays, I wonder if I’m dreaming or he is truly the one for me. Life throws obstacles our way. Yet, we find our way back to each other, somehow. Our love becomes an inspiration for me when I write my books. I love the way he inspired  ne. He’s perfect. No one is perfect. Our human traits sometimes get in the way. But, our souls remind us of the love we share.


I know finding love these days isn’t easy. But it’s not something you find. It comes to you. That’s what I did four years ago. I kept my heart open and readied my soul for this amazing love I know today. When the time was right, everything fell into place with perfect synchronicity. Nothing complicated. Just love.





My New Favorite TV Show


Fall shows have begun! Are you as excited as me to reunite with our favorite character and discover new ones? As an author, television is one of my sources for inspiration. Not many shows capture my interest. But, when it does, I do not miss an episode. It certainly is wonderful to escape into another universe for a few hours a week.

Reality shows are my thing. I prefer a well-written show with smart dialogue, some humor and a whole lot of entertainement.

One show that fits my wish list is Outlander(produced by Starz). It’s an amazing show for the historical romance lover and for the fantasy one as well. If you haven’t watched it yet, I would highly recommend you watch it on Netflix, for example.

I started watching this show a month ago when I saw the two main stars Catriona Balfe and Sam Heughan on The View. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason I decided to start watching Outlander, but I don’t regret it one bit. Curiosity is certainly one reason. But, I had no idea how many fans this show had. The Outlander Universe is worldwide. Of course, this universe is divided into the book followers and the non-book followers.  People have been reading the Outlander series by Diana Galbadon for years. My sister is one of them. I, myself, prefer to watch the tv series first. I love book adaptations. They really give us another dimension about the characters. They come alive on the small or big screen!

A dream of mine is for one of my books to transform into a movie. Maybe all of my books will come to life! Who knows, right?

Back to Outlander, it’s basically the story of a WWII British nurse who, on her second honeymoon with her husband, is magically transported back in time to 1743 and meets a sexy Highlander, wearing a kilt and speaking with a sexy Scottish brogue. Adventure and romance are present. Of course, there are plenty of sex scenes to whet your appetite.

If you haven’t started watching the tv series, I highly recommend it. If you are already a fan, what is your favorite episode?

A Work in Progress


Hope you are all doing well. I’ve been working on my new paranormal romance manuscript this week. I just finished writing chapter nine. My goal is to get it published by December. I can’t wait to share it with you.

I’ve never written a paranormal romance before. So, it’s a great challenge. I’m definitely having fun with the research.

For sure, it will be filled with romance, steamy scenes and adventure like all the other books I wrote.

Without spilling the beans too much, the story is about a Viking. Who doesn’t love those guys? Wink wink. Once it’s finished and off to the publisher, I will share with you a glimpse of the story.

For now, you can get your hands on my other great novels. Check out My Books section. And there’s a giveaway going on too!

If you have any questions for me, please post them below! I will more than happy to answer you!

Authentic Bosnian Baklava recipe:

wiserlady's Blog (Youtube: Delish Asian Diet)

This is a recipe for authentic Bosnian walnut baklava. My husband is Bosnian and his favorite dessert is baklava. I wanted to be able to make baklava for him at home. However, I started with phyllo dough bought from the store. I was not satisfied with the flaky consistency. When I discussed with other Bosnian ladies, I realized that in the old days, the women would make baklava at home with homemade phyllo dough or jufka! It is very difficult to achieve the paper thinness but it is possible with enough practice. I must admit that I experimented on several occasions until I was able to perfect the entire process. The process below now works for me perfectly every time and the result is a crispy yet juicy baklava fresh from home! I learnt the recipe for jufka from ‘Baking with Sibella’ @ http://bakingwithsibella.com/.
