Riya Sanobal, a mostly-human rarity in her magical family, hides her heritage and magical talent for doors in favor of her dance career. A rich arts patron likes her work, and a visiting star likes her, but she’s distracted by vivid dreams of a sexy, Native American warrior who defeats cheating demons and kisses like, well, a dream.

Time is running out for disabled veteran Idrián Odair, the last dreamwalk warrior of his hidden tribe, to protect his ancestral lands and find his partner. He met her once in the space between the demon worlds and Earth, and now his meddlesome grandfather’s ghost insists he must find her in real life before it’s too late.

Unless Riya and Idrián can find a way to trust each other and learn the secrets of dreamwalk, Denver will become an all-you-can-eat buffet for a ravenous demon horde. No pressure!

Welcome to S. E. Smith’s paranormal romance world of Magic, New Mexico, where the creatures of fairy tales, myth, and nightmares are free to be themselves and find their happily ever after.

If you believe that heart and character matter, that anyone can learn to dance, and that death is just another door, you’ll love In Graves Below.


Tangling With Topper by Donna McDonald

Tangling with Topper by Donna McDonald

amazon buy link

What was a witch to do? She had no power to fight the sexy alien and couldn’t fight his power over her.

Topper didn’t like it, but as the head witch in Magic, she had to be responsible and do the right things. That meant there would be no safaris or white river rafting until this latest fiasco was over. Last time they opened the space portal, it was to reunite Lacey and Frost. This time? It was to let some alien animal catcher come through to help them round up the green meanies that had snuck through on them when Frost had returned.

But nothing explained why the older Glacierian male chose to show up naked. It was just incredibly rude, no matter how impressive the package he was sporting. On top of not caring one whit that he’d embarrassed them, Stark was also more arrogant than anyone she’d ever met. This included the Fates who took her powers away and then wouldn’t tell her why.

When the men in black and a nosy scientist arrived, it just capped off the worst week Topper could ever remember having in her entire witchy life. The troublemakers would have to be stashed until her powers returned. The only bright spot was that Stark was a sleek alien animal in bed and the most talented lover she’d ever come across. And she wouldn’t have to wipe his memory when it over because Stark was leaving anyway.

Drake Winston was dealing with the biggest struggle of his life. At risk of losing the one thing he valued most in the world, he didn’t have time for romantic pursuits. Then he met Antonia Hendricks. His online profile allowed him a chance to show a side of himself he hadn’t shared with another in years. Her smile, her sweetness and her faith in a friendship forged in a chat forum shakes his world.

Drake knows he should be honest. He should leave the curvy sweetheart alone and stay far away. But someone else is interested in his Antonia and Drake will sacrifice anything to see her come through unharmed. Even if it means giving up his magic.

Patience ‘Pati’ Harper does not possess the virtue her name depicts. She is the last witch in her family’s line and feels pressured to bear a child, even though her temperament does not result in many second dates.

Being only one-quarter jaguar changeling, her inability to shift almost brought her ancestral line to an end when she was almost killed in her teens.

Danyal Zabare, a jaguar shifter, who grew up hearing stories about soul mates and is determined to settle for nothing less. He recognizes Patience as his mate the instant he lays eyes on her. Leaving everything behind, Danyal follows her through a portal to an unknown world.

Confronted with her past and a man claiming to be her future, Pati must evolve into what destiny demands. Will Pati’s magic be strong enough to save her and two innocents from the violence of her past?

Enjoy another adventure set in S.E. Smith’s Magic, New Mexico.

One Mystic, One Princess, a Prince and a High Commander can only mean one thing in Magic, New Mexico… chaos!

Penelope Stubblefield, aka Mystic Star, is hiding out in the small town of Magic, New Mexico. For her, it is a great place to start over in a town where the residents are even stranger than her. What she doesn’t expect is the sudden appearance of a man claiming she is an alien Princess!

Altair, High Commander of the Vion, is sent on a mission by his king to recover the wayward princess that has disappeared and return her to Vion so that a union between his son, Prince Ronic, and Mystic Star can seal the union between his world and hers. Mayhem ensues, when Prince Ronic joins Altair on his quest.

Two women, one the real Mystic Star, one not, a town full of strange beings, a warrior bred not to love, and a curious alien prince lead to a calamity of misunderstandings when the real Mystic Star shows up. Can Penelope convince her alien visitors they have the wrong girl before she finds herself wed to the Prince when her heart belongs to another? Only the Fates know!

A trip with friends turns into a nightmare of epic proportions when a magic spell forces Kayla Evans to take an unexpected detour to nowhere-ville, New Mexico. The small town is full of crazies, mischievous baby fairies, talking animals and one hot hunk of a man who just won’t leave her alone. In fact, he’s following her everywhere, stealing kisses, and making her want a little crazy of her own. But Kayla has a life, and living in the middle of a desert is not her idea of a good time, even if it does come with one amazing, and sexy benefit – a sexy fire elemental determined to melt her socks off.

To the rest of the world, ancient mythology is just that, fairy tales. But for Xander and his magical brothers, it’s all too real. Born into a long line of powerful but cursed men, he is destined to wait for the goddess to summon a mate for him using a powerful magical spell. When the magic summons sassy and willful Kayla, Xander faces the ultimate test. Kayla may not be able to resist his seduction, but Xander craves more than physical pleasure, he is determined to claim her heart.


Etched in Stone by Susan Hayes

Etched in Stone by Susan Hayes

Stone has been alive for centuries but he’s never truly lived. Created by magic, he was duty bound to watch over the Drummond family and guard them with his life. Now, his last master is dead and there’s no one left to protect. Instead of gaining his freedom at last, Stone finds himself locked in his granite form, a living mind trapped inside a statue of a gargoyle. Lost in despair and on the verge of madness, the days blend together into one everlasting nightmare.

Until he begins to dream of her.

Adina Diggersby lives for her art. Sculpting stone is her passion, one that keeps her busy enough she rarely has time to mourn the one thing missing from her life, someone to share it with. She spends her days in her studio or walking among her personal collection of sculptures and statues gathered from all over the world. The last thing she ever expected was for her newest purchase to come to life and inform her he was her new protector.

Adina won’t rest until Stone is free of the spells that enslave him, but unravelling the dark magic that created him will come at a price. Are these two souls doomed to be forever alone, or is their love strong enough to be etched in stone?

He thought his new neighbors in Magic, NM were weird. But he’s in for an even bigger shock the night he answers the door and finds his ex-girlfriend standing on his front steps. His very, very dead ex-girlfriend. She was gorgeous and annoying when she was alive … now she’s scary.

Grayson Stark is a gifted artist, painting oils that bring high prices. No one knows just how gifted—he paints from his dreams. Until his studio is trashed with violence that shocks even the police. Now he’s lying low in the last place anyone would look for him … a little town called Magic. He’s even getting used to the strange mix of townspeople. Until the night his ex-girlfriend knocks on his door.

Brynne Polson remembers dying. She can’t believe she has another chance at life with her hot, brooding boyfriend … except Gray doesn’t seem all that thrilled to have her back, they’re far from home, and she has a strange female voice in her head. And just how does a woman gain ten pounds while she’s dead, anyway?

E’ea, a Galactic Guardian, brought back Gray’s true love from the dead. In Brynne’s body, she’ll keep him safe from the assassins who want to stop his painting before he reveals any more of the future, then leave the couple together. There’s just one problem—neither of them seem to appreciate her efforts. She must keep them alive and show them their importance in the future of the galaxy. At least this backward little planet has cheeseburgers.

Can an alien dedicated to peace give a feuding couple a second chance at life and love? Get your copy of Guarding Grayson today!

Known in town as Bad Date Daisy, she turns men into Centaurs and sends them on their way. Only with Orion, her spells don’t work.

But he’s going to have a hard time convincing any witch to return with him to his planet where all the witches were killed or fled years ago. Time is his enemy to save the kingdom and he’s having a hard time convincing the delightful Daisy to return with him.

Can Daisy find true love? Can Orion save Daisy? Can the fates be wrong…




    • I’ll post a way to get them. It is a little tricky, though one reader even had an Amazon rep help her! 🙂

      • The way around this is to have the American site as the only site used, I refuse to switch and lose the opportunity to purchase books which may not be available worldwide because of legal interference (no licences in other countries).

        I contend that Amazon is “shafting” their authors, as surely an author has the right to sell their work to anyone wishing to buy, not be denied sales by lawyers.

        Susan can comment, not sure she’d be pleased if only Americans could purchase her books.

        • This is from several other authors in the Kindle World. Cat Johnson has been very successful and this was recommended to her by Susan Stoker. One reader even sent me screen shots of her conversation with an Amazon rep who helped her do the following, though you don’t need it. This is the same if you are traveling overseas and they switch you (I had this happen in the UK while we were there). Below are the instructions. It is frustrating and I’ve heard through the grapevine that Amazon is working on expanded distribution of their Kindle Worlds to include worldwide. 🙂 Fingers-crossed!

          For my international readers, if you have been frustrated that you haven’t been able to buy the books in my Magic, New Mexico Kindle World, I have a work around for you.

          Kindle Worlds titles are only available from Amazon US site. Unfortunately, that means that readers using Amazon UK, CA, and AU are going to have to be a little creative and tenacious to get ahold of a copy. This is a method one of my author friends came up with, tested, and confirmed:

          –Log into your Amazon UK, CA, or AU account.

          –Add a United States address to your list of one-click addresses. You could try a hotel address or other business address you find online. The program is only concerned with confirming it is a legit address, not your address.

          –Go to Manage Your Content & Devices, and under Country settings, change your location to US. Amazon will ask you to select an address. Select the US address you added to your one-click addresses.

          –Now you can click on the Amazon US link, buy the book, and it will download onto your designated device.

          –Once the book is downloaded, go back through the process changing everything back to your home country.

  • Hi Susan,

    Congratulations must go to your friends for their lovely books which I greatly enjoyed. Well done everybody, just a shame that follow-up books won’t be coming (???) as the situations/characters were great and it was sad to leave them behind.

    Incidentally, I took your advice the last time we corresponded and read Dust.

    Good story, although it would have been nice to have had an introduction to this world chapter, as it didn’t really make sense – a comet hit the earth and (poof???) the world changed but it wasn’t explained.

    Still, you’re the professional, I’m the (gentle reader as Isaac Asimov described us), so I’ll leave it to you, whilst looking forward to your future releases whenever they appear.

    Then, we’ll all get frustrated again once those are read – laughs, a writers’ work is never done.

    Best wishes to you all

    • Thank you! I replied to your later post about the KW. I’ll be writing more in the Magic, New Mexico series and those will be available world-wide. Amazon is working on it. There will be more about what happened to the Earth as Dust and his new ‘family’ travel further west. At this point, they aren’t sure just how huge of a change has come to the planet, just what has affected them and what they’ve seen. As Paul Harvey would says; And now for the rest of the story.
