Spring

like a timid maid,

you peek from behind the frozen tundra. 

A shy glance, 

a smile, and a ray of your loveliness. 

Oh, how we long for you to dance for us.

How we long for your fragrant scents and vibrant blooms. 

I see you peeking.

Come dance with me.

Concussion

You never know what the Universe is going to throw at you. In my case, a brick wall, literally. In truth it was more like I was thrown at the wall. I fell and hit my head. A quick trip to the emergency room and a CAT scan later and the diagnosis was “A concussion”.

I’ve never researched concussions before. I had no idea that you should stay in a dark room and limit all stimulation for ten days or that you shouldn’t use anything with a screen.

Even now, six weeks later, I have problems with screens and getting over stimulated. My whole life has been put on hold, so my brain can recover. I’m happy to say, that I am better, but not well.

To my fans, who are expecting a book out this month, it’s been pushed back. I’m not sure exactly when “Katya” will be coming out, but I hope before summer is done.

I’m learning to be patient with my limitations and myself. I hope you can be patient with me as well.

If you are so moved, I am open to all prayers and healing thoughts as I recover.

Until next time,

Caryn

Katya

Book One of the Volkov Family Chronicles

 

Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success she’s comfortable with. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Illarion Lebedev has secretly watched over Katya since she was in college. He’s proud of her accomplishments. Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate. But wooing the “Ice Princess” will take more than his good looks and social position. It will take a love strong enough to thaw her wounded heart.
