Rested and Rejuvenated

On the second day of spring, I am vacationing in South Carolina and writing again for the first time in two months.  Life has a way of keeping us too busy to do the things we want to do.

A trip to the beach is one of my favorite ways to unwind (especially when the temperatures are still below freezing at home)!

Everyone needs “me time” – time to relax both mind and body; and now that I am finally relaxed… I am pounding the keyboard again with great vigor!!

Treasure Trails - The Coins Book 2 by Deniece GreeneTreasure Trails – The Coins (Book 2) takes place near Asheville, North Carolina.  New to this installment is Sedrick, a sexy shapeshifter who almost doesn’t make it out the first chapter alive!

Natie Stephens is on her way to Asheville in order to help Becki (her sister) plan her wedding to Royce.  Natie has finished school, resigned from her job and stashed her furniture in storage.  She is looking forward to seeing Sean Jones again; his green eyes have haunted her dreams since she first met last year.

Sean is Special Ops. – a technological genius with a soft spot for Natie Stephens.  He heard through Royce that she finally dumped her boyfriend, none too soon in Sean’s opinion.  Even better, she is expected at the compound within the next couple of weeks to help Becki plan her wedding to Royce.

Sean is looking forward to spending some “quality time” with Natie.  Can she handle the world he encounters on a daily basis?  A world filled with magic and creatures of the night?


The Coins – what is the story?

Treasure Tides - The Coins (Book 1) by Deniece GreeneThe Secret Council of Elders have contacted Royce St. John and his Special Ops Team to recover a set of missing coins.  Arimus, the Chief Elder, explained to Royce that the coins were originally Merlin’s, who had ‘spelled’ each of them centuries ago.  Unfortunately, the coins had been stolen by Peirce Regan, a rogue warlock, who had then disappeared.  Peirce eventually double-crossed the wrong immortal, and met a gruesome end.  At some point, the coins had become separated, and fallen into circulation.

The coins should have been easy to locate and recover, because Merlin had feared they might someday end up in the wrong hands.  He had hidden a unique frequency in each coin as he created it.  The hidden frequency should have functioned similarly to a modern-day ‘homing beacon’.  However, Peirce had been a trusted friend to Merlin, and had known exactly what measures were required in order to avoid discovery.  After stealing the coins, Peirce had ‘cloaked’ them all by wrapping each coin separately in a spell crafted specifically to suppress the unique frequency Merlin had so carefully woven into each one.

Witches, working for the Council, had been trying to lift the ‘magic cloak’ for hundreds of years.  Unfortunately, the task had turned out to be very difficult, almost impossible.  Recently, however, the witches had been receiving intermittent, random signals from the coins.  The Council had decided it was time to turn the reins over to their Special Ops Team.

That was where the story ended, according to Arimus… That is where our story begins.
