Dark Victory Header

The Dark Victory video is finished, at last!

We increased our budget and I think it shows-we have not just two amazing actors (four, if you count the poor guy who loses his head and the little girl in Tabby's classroom), but some incredible special effects and some huge panoramic shots! I am so pleased, and I hope you are, too. I think it tells it all-powerful Highland warrior, gentle schoolteacher, Scotland, the past, a love story!

And of course, Dark Victory will be on sale February 28. It is the second book of the Rose trilogy, and yes, it is a Masters of Time novel, too. As you know, Macleod has refused to take his vows and his life is about vengeance for a massacre he witnessed as a boy, almost a hundred years ago in 1201. He is haunted by that massacre-and that small boy he once was! Meanwhile, Tabby has yet to perfect her magic as she lives life as all Rose women do-protecting the Innocent from the dangers in the night. And then while Tabby is at a museum, at an exhibit about a terrible fire in Melvaig, Scotland in the 16th century, a bloody, burned Highlander appears-and he is real-they touch hands! But he vanishes, and Tabby knows she has to help him, so she tries to use her magic to summon him to her. And boy, is she surprised, when her magic works, except it summons Macleod from the wrong time! She's off by a few centuries and he doesn't need her help, in fact, he is mad...

 So if you haven't read Dark Embrace yet, which is Aidan and Brie's story, you might want to do so now, before Dark Victory!

The third book in the Rose trilogy, Dark Lover, will be on sale in late September. And let me assure you, you will not want to miss Ian, oh no! He is my favorite hero up to date...

I am off from writing now for about a month, a much needed break. I have two big shows back to back, beginning with our huge annual All-Arabian Show in Scottsdale in February, and another in March. I am looking forward to family, friends and fun-and lots of riding.

Happy Reading,

4 1/2 Stars - Top Pick! "Joyce's skillful handling of the many facets of time travel, supported by her ability to create gripping scenes fraught with emotional intensity, are brought to the fore in this fascinating and complex continuation of the Masters of Time series. Her vivid descriptions sweep you into the pages of her compelling story and keep you enthralled. Not to be missed!"
-Romantic Times Bookreviews

"Dark Victory is a powerful story about the loss of family, revenge, redemption, the healing power of love, and the ultimate fight between good and evil.  Brenda Joyce has given us a passionate love story of two characters searching for their destinies and finding them within each other.  Dark Victory should be devoured and then savoured slowly by readers.  I can't wait to see what happens in next instalment of the Masters of Time and the Rose trilogy."
-January, The Historical Romance Society

"In the excellent time travel, DARK VICTORY, Brenda Joyce proves once again why she has remained such a beloved, bestselling romance author for over two decades giving her fans two unforgettable, passionate lovers and a unique love story that will stand the test of time."
Pat Rouse, Reader's Group Liason
