Today we celebrate the release of GARDEN OF SHADOWS!
Danger lurks for Julia Marsden, the daughter of the late vicar of St. Lodore’s Church in the quiet village of Borrowdale.
Julia doesn’t believe in faeries or magic or dreams coming true, but odd things have been happening at the vicarage lately that cannot be explained. Her orphaned cousin, Charlie, believes in mythical creatures and claims that faeries now inhabit the vicarage’s bluebell garden. The boy also claims the faerie king, Cadeyrn, has promised to make him a prince in his kingdom and teach crippled Charlie to walk again if he will cross into the Fae realm.
As the faerie king’s influence on the boy grows stronger, another threat emerges from the boy’s uncle – Douglas Hawke, the Earl of Eastbourne, who has come to wrench him from Julia’s guardianship. Julia is determined to fight both men, but as she and the boy begin to fall under the spell of the faerie king, Julia realizes that only her love for Douglas can save them.
But is Douglas capable of loving her, even at the cost of his own life?

Meara Platt is happily married to her Russell Crowe look-alike husband, and they have two terrific children. She lives in one of the many great towns on Long Island, New York and loves it, except for the traffic. She has traveled the world, works as managing partner in a boutique law firm in NYC, occasionally lectures and finds time to write. Her favorite place in all the world is England’s Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape.
A close second is the rest of England and the British Isles, the original (and still beautiful) land of enchantment. For Meara, writing is all about enchantment, whether in the setting, the characters (such as Dragon Lords and Fae Kings), or in the author’s voice. A great writer entertains, inspires, makes us laugh or cry, and sometimes makes us think. She is honored to know and learn from some of the best romance writers of our day.
Meara is a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award winner, and was thrilled to be recognized by this amazing organization. As with everything along life’s journey, it is always sweeter when shared with friends, so Meara’s special thanks goes out to fellow writers Pamela Burford and Patricia Ryan who have been with her from her very first baby steps as a writer.
