Beyond Neverland

In the wake of Neverland’s destruction, Michael Darling harbors a heart that cannot find its place in the real world. John Darling is haunted by the memories of a native princess’s kiss. Tootles is a Lost Boy well and truly lost. And Wendy Darling writes of longing, and wears a gold button on a chain around her neck that once belonged to a notorious pirate captain.

But the mists are building around Wendy’s world. The storms have returned, and the winds are changing. Strange noises and shifting shadows re-awaken memories of a past they all thought they’d left behind.

Magic is stirring, crossing the boundaries between worlds, opening doors that were never quite locked, and filling the seas with promise – and danger. Something is coming… and it’s not leaving without what it came for.

In this conclusive book in Heather Killough-Walden’s Neverland series, Wendy and her friends face a future none of them ever could have imagined, and learn that everything they can’t find in the real world awaits them once more just past the second star to the right… and straight on ‘til morning.

The Hottest Vampire Romance Ever Written

Releasing NOW – November 1, 2013

The Third Kiss: Dorian’s Dream

Third time’s the charm.

In the steamy aftermath of a Baton Rouge day, in the depths of a king’s luxurious mansion, a man with blue eyes dreams of a woman….

Emma Rose Nekoda is a girl with a painful past who relies on the love of her last living relative, her brother, and the joy of her work as a photographer to get her from day to day. But her memories have scarred her deeper than she admits, and her past is more dangerous than she knows. As she travels to the mist-filled streets of New Orleans for the opening of her first gallery showing, she is completely unaware that she has been ear marked for something greater – and more terrifying – than most people could have imagined.

Dorian Adalard has lived several lifetimes, but the moment the woman appears in his dreams will forever be marked in his memory. The faint sadness in her beautiful smile haunts Dorian’s night and follows him into the daylight, chasing his heels like a beast, no matter how hard he pushes his bike, no matter how many laws he breaks on his way from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.

It only gets worse when later that day, he looks up to find his dream girl watching him from the sidewalk of a busy New Orleans street. A nymph in blue jeans with wild hair and big eyes, she fills Dorian with an inexplicable and unshakable desire – to protect… and to devour.

And he knows who she is. For she is unique; there has never been another born like her. But she is not meant for him. She is the foretold queen meant for his brother – the beautiful, sadistic, and all too powerful vampire king.

Forever a changed man, Dorian finds himself breaking tradition, bucking vampire law, and going up against a veritable army and its ruthless master to save the woman he loves from the man he loathes – taking Emma along for the pulse-pounding, life-altering ride.

This new open-ended vampire romance series by New York Times best selling romance author, Heather Killough-Walden is unlike any published before. Delve into the supernatural darkness of a Louisiana night, and learn that for a Harley-riding vampire with eyes like ice and blood like fire, there is nothing quite so alluring as the woman your brother wants.

This is the hottest vampire romance you will ever read – and read again.

The October Trilogy Finale

Happy (slightly early) Halloween! Suddenly Sam, book three in The October Trilogy, is available at eBook sellers everywhere NOW!

Suddenly Sam
The October Trilogy, Book Three

Samhain is running out of time. When the clock strikes midnight on Halloween, the door to his realm will close forever, and any precious hope he possessed of winning the heart of the woman he would choose as queen will vanish along with October. A desperate lack of time calls for desperate measures, and Sam finds himself pushing boundaries and breaking rules to claim the heart he loves. But there is more at stake here than even the Death God realized, and as the long hand climes toward October’s final moments, what is truly to be gained and truly to be lost becomes all too terrifyingly clear.

Logan Wright’s world spins out of control as she is dragged unwillingly into the realm bordering Samhain’s kingdom. But what begins as a struggle to free herself from Sam’s clutches and leave the new yet achingly familiar land she has entered becomes a journey of dawning understanding and self discovery – as October Land, in all of its amber-hued splendor and Autumn magic not only captures her body and soul, but the very heart she is trying so desperately to protect.

Somewhere between the mortal realm and the Realm of the Dead, in the fantastical world of apple orchards and pumpkin patches, cinnamon spice, and midnight masquerades, ten friends quest for power, freedom, and salvation – and one must make the ultimate choice. And the ultimate sacrifice.

Suddenly Sam is the anxiously awaited third and final heart-pounding novel in the award winning young adult paranormal romance series, The October Trilogy, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Heather Killough-Walden.

A Teaser Tuesday Treat :)

From “Beyond Neverland” by Heather Killough-Walden
Release date TBA

When Captain James Hook handed his spyglass to his first mate and rolled back his shoulders, he wasn’t expecting the sudden terrible impact that rocked the Jolly Roger viciously to one side, knocked nearly every man on deck off their feet, and sent splintered wood and debris flying hazardously in all directions.

The sound was deafening; immediately following the blast of the impact, a ringing engulfed Hook’s ears. He grasped hold of the railing with his left hand, the hand he was more accustomed to using after having that hand to rely upon for hundreds of years. He’d barely wrapped his fingers around the wood before his arm was pulled painfully taut, his boots were sliding out from under him, and he was reaching out like lightning to grasp the railing with his other hand. Not for the first time since Neverland had been destroyed, Hook found himself marveling at his second appendage.

In the periphery of his chaos-filled vision, Hook saw ancient and toothless Skylights go tumbling, but the old pirate and the ruby and emerald-tipped cane he’d acquired in a previous raiding disappeared behind one of the masts as the ship listed seriously to one side. Hook watched Murphy go down, and fleeting, subconscious fears for his ship’s doctor coursed through him. Starkey stumbled back, taking a shard of wood in the shoulder.

Hook saw blood on Smee’s shirt as the rotund man was knocked backward, landed hard, and rolled away. The ship continued to list, turning ever further on its side.

Arnold the Black became airborne, his enormous black-bearded form lifting completely off the deck as if he had leapt into the air, and Hook could see the jagged edge of a metal strip of destroyed door banding protruding from the back of his leg.

The Jolly Roger reached a horizontal state where it unnaturally floated hundreds of feet above the ocean, and both of Hook’s hands held on for everything they were worth.
Both of my hands, he thought. They were words surrounded by a thousand other thoughts about his men, his ship, about the past – about Wendy.

He was being made to walk the plank, being thrown off his own ship. Things he’d done to so many others in the past… even to Wendy. So long ago. Fitting, he thought fleetingly. A pirate racked up so many kills in his life time. For some pirates, they were countless life times.

The deck was slippery beneath the sweat of his palms, and with passing, bitter amusement, he realized that a hook at the end of his arm would have provided a much better hold than his hand did now.

His muscles cramped, his fingers straining against the pull of the open air. And as the Jolly Roger very nearly turned completely upside down, Captain James Hook prepared to face the fall that would finally be his death, and at last even the score.

Other Worlds Are Waiting

Hello everyone! 🙂
I would like to put forth all that while I am truly (honestly) thrilled that you’re so thoroughly enjoying The Big Bad Wolf series and its spinoff, The Kings, it will be a while before the next The Kings book is out, and in the meantime, if you haven’t already, I would HIGHLY recommend giving some of my other nearly two dozen books a read. I don’t know about you, but when I find an author I enjoy, I read every single book they have written. It is their voice, the depth of their characters, and the brilliance of their environments that I adore. If you like the depth of the characters and the type of environment I paint in The Big Bad Wolf and The Kings series – you will LOVE the same in my other novels: The Lost Angels series (adult paranormal romance), The October Trilogy (young adult paranormal romance), The Chosen Soul Trilogy (romantic fantasy), Vampire Vampire (paranormal romance novella duo), Redeemer (paranormal romantic thriller), A Sinister Game (adult paranormal romance), Hell Bent (romantic thriller), and the Neverland series (romantic fantasy for all ages) are brilliant, multi-hued, steamy, and fulfilling.
Trust me. You’re missing out.
So take my hand and come with me into my many worlds.
I promise I won’t lead you astray.
XOXO

Change of Plans

I am in Oxford, England right now, as my husband was offered a sabbatical at Oxford University, and my choices were to either accompany him or be apart from him for six months. I’ve been apart from him for extended lengths in the past and it’s never any fun, so I figured, “If I go, I can do research for my books, and escape from the heat of West Texas in the summer to boot.”
However, it’s actually quite warm here and contrary to my house in Texas, the short let after short let I have been forced to rent because our six month apartment doesn’t open until July 29th lack air conditioning. None of the rentals have it, I am told. I’m told that air conditioning is just not a big thing here.
Because of this, my allergies, which are normally filtered out for me through the tightly wound allergen filters of my air conditioning system at home, are at an all time high. To make matters worse, England is apparently experiencing the worst hay fever season they’ve had in decades.
I am not a normal person when it comes to allergies. I have seen scores of allergists at the same time, have tried every medicine on the market (inhaler, nasal spray, pill, etc.), had an intensive series of shots for three years, and have had surgeries to remove my turbinates, un-deviate my septum, and remove polyp after polyp. All of these things have failed to bring me any relief, and my histamine reactions are so off the scale that they photographed my back after one of my tests and entered it into a medical journal because I looked so bad.
To come to the point – I, with my very hot head, very itchy and jetlagged body, am so tired from fighting my health issues and the heat and allergies and the unpacking and repacking and moving from place to place and the rather alarming technical, governmental, and financial difficulties, that I have not been in the mood to write. Not at all. I just can’t do it.
So, figuring that if I could at least stop itching and swelling, I would be ten thousand times better, I asked my readers for help. Many of the empathetic angels immediately came to my aid.
THANK YOU to all of you who were kind enough to do a rain/fog/cooler weather dance for me so that I could begin writing again. But I’ll just admit that since I don’t think it’s going to work and I think the heat is here to stay for a while (I heard you Brits cheer), I am going to have to take a break from writing.
Beyond Neverland may not come out this year. That is my official statement on its release. I was hoping that coming here with my husband on his sabbatical would inspire me to write like the wind and I would be able to release it by September or so, but it’s just not happening.
Unfortunately, the same goes with Suddenly Sam, which it pains me to say, I may have to cancel this year and postpone until next year.
And since the next two Kings books are about the Fae, who in my world live in misty, mysterious, England-in-the Fall type of environs, they will most likely be put on hold as well.
Who knows? Perhaps this is the Fates telling me to take a break and not write for a while. I’ve churned out a lot of books.
Whatever the reason, this is the situation right now. I will pick up the pen for everyone when the seasons turn.
Love,
– Heather
XOXO

The Goblin King is here!!!

The fourth book in the Big Bad Wolf spinoff series, The Kings, is now available at both Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (Nook).

Damon Chroi has known the weight of ruling in loneliness for thousands of years. The tall, painfully handsome fae lord was born with so much power, the fae kings not only envied but feared him, and banished him to a forbidden realm to be forgotten. There, he was tasked with ruling over the deadliest creatures known to the fae worlds, and his veritable battle as their sovereign is never-ending. As one of the 13 Kings, his destiny foretells an end to his solitude with the appearance of an equally powerful queen. But that kind of power is hard to come by. And power or not, Damon can’t imagine any woman willingly joining him in the eternal misery to which he has been tasked.

Until he meets the beautiful, strong and selfless Diana Piper.

Diana has been hiding a potent secret from the world for decades. She was born with abilities others would fight to win, and kill to keep. To make matters worse, she is a sensitive soul who, despite the danger it poses to herself, uses these powers to make the world a better place. Forever in harm’s way, overworked and head strong, Diana one night comes across the ultimate challenge in the form of a wayward fae beast – and in the process, crosses paths with its indomitable king. A light can only shine in the darkness so long before someone takes note of it. And Diana not only manages to gain the instant attentions of Damon Chroi… but of those who would do anything to see him – and the other 13 Kings – dead.
