Cate Masters Guest Post and Giveaway *CLOSED* of The Magic of Lavender (INT)
Signs that life as you know it has ended
Sometimes the universe sends you signals you just can’t ignore. Such as:
The old bed and breakfast you just bought gives off waves of wild energy.
The lavender you plant, with which you plan to create specialty dishes for the inn, begin to attract the fae.
The waitress at the diner in town turns into a demon, and suddenly wants you out of the picture – forever.
The veterinarian you’re falling hopelessly in love with becomes confused by strange hauntings, becomes emotionally conflicted and oh yeah, now bears The Mark on his chest.
Your grandmother tells you your unusual family history – that your ancestor is Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow.
And that your mother had to leave the family to protect you from dark forces, who killed your father.
But then, if you’re as perceptive as my heroine Jocelyn Gibson, you suspected all that already. Joss had long ignored her family heritage – her grandmother’s unusual skill with herbs, her aunt’s too-accurate tarot and palm readings, and her own childhood memories of fairies. But her past catches up to her once she buys an old Victorian, and the events that converge convince her that life as she knew it is gone, but at the same time, she’s come home.
Have you ever had an A-Ha moment like that in your life, when you knew things had changed irreversibly?
I’d love to give away an ebook copy of The Magic of Lavender – simply leave a comment on this post by Saturday, July 23. *CLOSED*

Cate Masters loves stories with a dash of magic, mayhem and romance! Multipublished in contemporary to historical, sweet to erotic, fantasy/dark fantasy to speculative, she sometimes mashes genres. Reviewers have described her stories as “so compelling, I did not want to put it down,” and “such romantic tales that really touch your soul.”
When not spending time with her family, she can be found in her lair, concocting a magical brew of contemporary, historical, and fantasy/paranormal stories with her cat Chairman Maiow and dog Lily as company. Find her at http://catemasters.blogspot.com, and other strange nooks and far-flung corners of the web.
