I spy with my little eye...a hot new series!

I've "discovered" Anita Clenney on Facebook and ever since I traveled to her website I've been on pins and needles to share this fantastic new series, due released in 2011 by Sourcebooks Casablanca. I know, I know, it's still months away from New Years Eve but my wishlist for 2011 is rapidly growing already. I fear the moment I'm actually going to search for 2011 releases by my favorite authors *eek*

Since I had all the info to share with you I was patiently waiting for the first cover to be revealed. Of course next to all the tantalizing info I had to give you all something to look at too. I'm known for my cover hussy tendencies and this one is definitely rocking my world. Mysterie, *rowr* man-candy, tats, atmospheric backdrop, oh yeah, the blurb already did it for me but I so heart it when the cover hits it home for me. I'd say AWAKEN THE HIGHLAND WARRIOR is a solid 8.0 on my cover-gasm scale *grin*

Now here I give you the 411 on this series:

Modern-Day Highland Warriors Series (Who says WANT to highland warriors?...I do! :)

Secret Warriors. Ancient Evil. Destined Love. (<- This is such a MAJOR trigger for me *thud*)

Since the beginning of time, a clan of warriors has walked the earth, their quest to seek and subdue the demons disguised among us. Appointed by the Archangel Michael,(OMG it includes an Archangel - I iz so sold!)  these Scottish protectors rely on secrecy, just as the demons they battle.Only vague references in obscure long-ago writings give mention to these mysterious beings. These are the stories of the Connor Clan.

Book One:

Awaken The Highland Warrior -- Coming May 2011 from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

Mis-adventurous historian Bree Kirkland discovers a one hundred fifty year old warrior buried in a crypt behind her house. But Faelan, the warrior, isn’t dead. When this chauvinistic Scottish Warrior awakes, he has no choice but accept the help of this modern-day woman who’s rescued him, but she’s more fearsome than the demon trying to kill him. If he’s not careful, she’ll uncover every secret his clan has bled and died to protect.

Book Two:

The Secret Child -- Coming soon from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

When the powerful demon that left Amanda for dead discovers her empty grave, he comes seeking retribution. Knowing she can’t fight the demon alone, Amanda returns to her clan and the Scottish Warrior who betrayed her…the only man she’s ever loved.

Book Three:

His Brother's Keeper -- Coming soon from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

The only weapon that can kill the demon who’s trying to destroy the world is Tavis Connor’s brother’s talisman, but his brother has been captured and Tavis doesn’t know if he’s alive or dead. The Scottish Warrior risks his life to find his brother and finish the quest. 

Isn't this all making your heart beat a bit faster? This is the second series from Sourcebooks casablanca that made it's way to my 2011 wishlist. I'm definitely keeping an eye out for more of this publishers releases!
