Storm the Castle audiobook

Very happy to share with you my newest audiobook and my first romance novel, Storm the Castle, by the very talented author Jolie Vines. This is the first in a series of romance books she has written set in Scotland. Storm the Castle was a fun challenge for me, dialect switching between a male Scottish lead, Callum, and his love interest, Mathilda, a woman from England. It’s a lovely story. If you’d like a code to download from Audible for free, let me know.

composing love

the rhythm
of this heart
measured in sighs

compound time
each beat
in three parts

one is for me
the next for you
the finest for us—

being the pulse
of this meter
flowing in time:

adagio i waited
like petals clasping
a blossom of hope

moderato i awoke
scenting the strands
of silken dawn

allegro i stride
over cultivated notes
patterned pristine

my voice singing
always, my love
for you

bòidhchead (“beauty”)

yours is the spirit of spring
that never fails to come

yours is the breath of life
singing the soil to grow

yours is the voice of the trees
whispering peace to the sun

yours is the strength of stones
washed by the purest snow

yours is the truth of May
blessing this verdant earth

yours is the vision of Fall
perceiving these seeds abed

yours is the hope of being
inviting souls to birth

yours is the path of the future
and journeys joyfully led
