Writing has always been a focus of my life. I penned my first story at age six and haven't stopped writing since.
I hold a Bachelors Degree in English, Creative Writing from Georgia State University. Before selling my first book, I worked in the high tech industry as a marketing manager, a technical trainer, and a marketing product manager. I'm a member of Romance Writers of America, Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA), Georgia Romance Writers (GRW), and Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA)
I live in Florida with my husband & our three children. When not torturing my characters mercilessly, I enjoy questing through the wilds of the latest Elder Scrolls game, knitting, crocheting, and dreaming of a world where chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a fat burning food! Oh, and reading, of course!
An epic new fantasy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. L. Wilson
After three long years of war, starkly handsome Wynter Atrialan will have his vengeance on Summerlea's king by taking one of the man's beautiful, beloved daughters as his bride. But though peace is finally at hand, Wynter's battle with the Ice Heart, the dread power he embraced to avenge his brother's death, rages on.
Khamsin Coruscate, Princess of Summerlea and summoner of Storms, has spent her life exiled to the shadows of her father's palace. Reviled by her father, marriage to Wintercraig's icy king was supposed to be a terrible punishment, but instead offers Kham her first taste of freedom—and her first taste of overwhelming passion.
As fierce, indomitable Wynter weathers even Khamsin's wildest storms, surprising her with a tenderness she never expected, Kham wants more than Wynter's passion—she yearns for his love. But the power of the Ice Heart is growing, dangerous forces are gathering, and a devastating betrayal puts Khamsin and Wynter to the ultimate test.
