A princess on the run, an ex-slave returning home. Together they must battle prejudice and superstition if their love is to survive.

When Princess Milenda arrives at Isv√§rld, a land of snow and ice, she’s hoping for a quiet life with her new husband, Jaali. What she gets is anything but.

Even though happy he’s returned, Jaali’s people can’t see past the color of Milenda’s skin, a color she shares with the hated Mabaya Warriors who have been stealing and selling their children into slavery for centuries.

Freya, a goddess of the icy kingdom, tasked with protecting the princess and her man, doesn’t seem trustworthy, and their only true ally is Milenda’s flying lizard, Mjusi. But even the mutsi is acting strangely.

Will their love for each other and Milenda’s special gifts protect them from the dangers around them or will they meet their doom in the one place that promised them safe harbor?

Snow Jewel is the second book in The Jewel Chronicles. A unique interracial romance set against a breathtaking fantasy world with complex characters and twists at every turn. Let Snow Jewel take you to another world.

Author of We Will Always Have the Closet, Desert Jewel, and Loved You Always, Natalina wrote her first romance in collaboration with her best friend at the age of 13. Since then she has ventured into other genres, but romance is first and foremost in almost everything she writes.

After earning a degree in tourism and foreign languages, she worked as a tourist guide in her native Portugal for a short time before moving to the United States. She li

ved in three continents and a few islands, and her knack for languages and linguistics led her to a master’s degree in education. She lives in Virginia where she has taught English as a Second Language to elementary school children for more years than she cares to admit.

Natalina doesn’t believe you can have too many books or too much coffee. Art and dance make her happy and she is pretty sure she could survive on lobster and bananas alone. When she is not writing or stressing over lesson plans, she shares her life with her husband and two adult sons.

Bold and brash, Eva MacAteer has spent her life working in her blue-collar family’s construction business. In doing so, she’s had to fight for her own place away from her overbearing father, as well as for her own identity as a woman. Struggling between her loyalty to her brothers and her desire to strike out to be her own person, Eva knows one thing for certain: getting involved with a womanizer, no matter how hot he may be, is not the path for her.  

Stud is not one to be tied down to any woman. Fiercely loyal to the club and his single ways, the last thing he expects is to become fascinated by the fiery Eva. He sees his own life reflected in hers and is not quite sure how to handle the connection.

Can two mismatched people find enough common ground to overcome their fears and allow love to grow?

I've had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I'm a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it's only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I've spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn't mean I'm pigeon-holed into one mold.  I've been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, "Life's too short to ignore the opportunities."   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

Fallen angels and reawakened desire, promises and grudges—a stunning novel in Virginia Cantrell’s Divine series continues, featuring Inaya and Trevin as they race to save the world of the Nephilim from a deadly enemy.

Adopted into the royal family, Inaya has never felt like she belonged, but when the kingdom is overthrown, the Nephilim look to her for guidance. In order to save all she holds dear, she must join forces with the soldier who broke her heart and destroyed her belief in love.

Driven by duty and haunted by the past, Trevin doesn’t make mistakes… until Inaya. His misguided honor cost him the courageous, impulsive beauty he swore to protect. With Inaya needing him now more than ever, he has the chance to prove his worth. But it may be too late to earn back her trust.

An unearthly enemy, the fallen angel Lahash, has vowed to destroy the Nephilim to right the sins of his past. With his plan set in motion and his fate tied to Inaya’s, the world of the Nephilim will never be the same.



As soon as they entered the dining area, Caeden’s eyes were immediately drawn to Amira, just as Inaya had known they would be. He wasted no time approaching and requesting a private moment with Amira. Inaya gave her an encouraging smile before she left them to, hopefully, sort things out.

A hand snapped forward and firmly grabbed Inaya’s arm as she entered the seating area, effectively stopping her at the entryway. She barely withheld a yelp, which would no doubt attract everyone’s attention. Jerking her head to the right, she found eyes the color of molten chocolate staring down at her, threating to draw her into their spell.

“Trevin.” It came out as a husky whisper.

“The seating arrangements could not be altered, but I trust you will take heed of our earlier conversation. You may be polite, but you will not pursue Sorin’s attention,” Trevin decreed.

Inaya ripped her arm from his grasp. “I don’t need you to instruct me on how to behave. I’ve been adequately put in my place once already today and reminded not to interfere with my betters.”

“How’s that?” His body was tense and his eyes fierce.

She felt a flutter in her lower belly, the unwanted attraction flaring at his intensity and show of strength. She shifted away from him and tried for a look of indifference. “Nothing for you to worry about.”

Trevin quickly scanned the room before his eyes came back to her. “We’ll discuss it later.” His warm hand settled on the small of her back as he escorted Inaya to her seat. “For now, safeguard yourself from unnecessary trouble, for both of us,” he said the last on a whisper in her ear as he helped her settle in her seat before taking his position across the room to stand guard. Her eyes followed him the entire way.

“I didn’t realize this was a charity event.” Sorin’s snide comment reached her from across the table, as he had intended.

Inaya was temporarily distracted by Marcelle choking on her water at Sorin’s comment, but quickly turned back to address him. “Meaning?”

“Meaning the rest of us are forced to endure the company of a street urchin,” he gave her a scathing once-over before continuing, “because King Vidar is weak-willed and gullible, which works out well for you, but is unfortunate for the rest of us.”

Inaya could practically feel the hatred being thrown at her through Sorin’s words. Her brief interactions with him in the past hadn’t been pleasant, but never had he spoken to her in this manner before. Too stunned to speak, she glanced to the head of the table where King Vidar sat conversing with Lord Donovan, Lady Ferrara, and Kearney, the new scout.

Inaya was grateful the king hadn’t heard the slight against him, but as the shock wore off, indignation and hurt began to surface, quickly followed by untamed fury. Just as she opened her mouth, ready to let this arrogant swine know exactly what she thought of him, Amira came sweeping in the room, gaining everyone’s attention. Always the proper princess, Amira greeted each of her guests before taking her seat at the end of the table opposite of her father.
