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.

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.

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.

When the magic summons sassy and willful Kayla, Xander faces the ultimate test.

Born prematurely, Christoff wasn’t as big or as strong as his older brother or the other younglings in the village. Unable to fit in, he does the best he can, helping his father and mother on their farm. His life changes when the mountain near their farm awakens. Believing he is the only one who can quiet it, he retreats to the mountain to watch over the village that shunned him.
A hermit for centuries, he dreams of the day he can move on to his next life; a life that he hopes will give him a chance of finding his true mate. He knows his time has come when the mountain begins to tremble again. What he doesn’t expect is a group of younglings who suddenly appear in the hopes of saving a thing called Christmas. When the mountain erupts, he never expects to awaken on a strange planet light years away, or to meet an unusual woman who sees beneath his deformity to the warrior hidden within.
Can the love of a special woman and her family heal Christoff’s tortured soul? Find out what happens when the Goddess Aikaterina gives The Old Dragon his very own special Christmas.
Watch the video below to see S.E. Smith talk about her inspiration for writing The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas.
Behind the Scenes: Where do the ideas come from?
I recently started doing author videos for each of my stories as I thought it might be good to share with everyone why I write the stories and to give a little behind the scenes look of how they came about. Nothing long and drawn out, but a little insight into how the worlds came to be. Your feedback shows that it was the right decision!
Mind you, it took 17 tries before I recorded one without stumbling too badly. I was making faces and doing the blah, blah, blah thing. When I am braver and have done a few more videos, I’ll have to post all the bloopers I made! (Some of them are really good! LOL)
I think you will love Edna and Christoff’s story! I dedicated it to Dulcie and Jose (both are in their 80’s). I truly believe love can come when you least expect it and that it is just as real for older couples as it is for the younger. Perhaps more so in many ways because we can appreciate how fortunate we are when we are given another chance to find it.
I cried buckets while writing The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas, but I also laughed out loud. You will need a big box of tissues for this story, but I promise, it will leave you smiling. Christoff definitely deserves his HEA!
I loved Christoff and Edna’s story. Just think what can happen when you see a Dragon fly!
