Legends of Love Book One
Can the ancient power of a pagan well truly change destinies?
Two people, intrinsically linked, are at the center of this spell-binding tale of love and magic. Their lives, and the lives of those around them, have been profoundly affected by a single event. A brief moment in time that, if altered, will right so many wrongs.
Is it possible to turn back time? To change the paths of those whose hearts have been broken? Whose lives have been lost?
Perhaps. The power of the well is great, but there is another, far greater power at work in the world.
Of all the forces under Heaven, love is the most powerful.
It changes everything.

Excerpt & More
Time. Lora all but felt the rush of its wings as it flew past, an eternal unstoppable force.
A small gold coin rested on her bedside table, one she'd dug out of her little leather purse earlier. It gleamed in the candlelight, tempting her with an uncertain promise. Was it folly to put so much faith in a tiny piece of precious metal and an ancient legend? A second wish? Well, it wouldn't hurt, she reasoned, scooping up the coin.
The stairwell and hallways still rang with the sounds of merriment. Lora tiptoed down the stairs, eager to escape the confines of the keep, formulating a new wish in her mind.
She didn't see the large dark figure by the main door until it loomed up in her path. Her strained nerves all snapped at once and she let out a cry.
“Master William. Oh, dear God. You scared me.”
He belched and squinted at her through languid eyes. “Where are you going, my lady?”
The smell of stale wine wafted across her face. Lora recoiled, her frantic heartbeat rattling in her ears.
“I… nowhere. I mean… I just felt like some air.” She frowned and tightened her grip on the coin, a knot of apprehension formed in her belly. This unkempt William was not the man she knew.
His gaze flicked to her clenched fist and an expression of sadness crossed his face. “Ah, Lora, don't. That heathen pit does naught but tangle with your dreams.” He hiccupped and waved his hand down the hallway toward Rothwyn's chapel door. “Try prayer, not pagan wishes. That's where I've been. In there, praying.”
“Praying?” Lora tilted her head and studied his sad expression, curiosity replacing her apprehension. “I never took you for a devout man. Do you really believe God will grant me what I want?”
He leaned against the wall, closed his eyes, and sucked in a breath. “No, I don't. You'll never have what you want, little 'un, but that's exactly why you must pray. You must pray for the strength to live without it.”
