Illegitimate yet thoroughly irresistible, the Renegade Royals are leaving behind their careers as daring spies for the greatest adventure of all…
At sixteen, Alasdair Gilbride, heir to a Scottish earldom, fled the Highlands and an arranged betrothal. Ten years later, Alasdair must travel home to face his responsibilities. It’s a task that would be much easier without the distracting presence of the most enticing woman he’s ever met…
After one escapade too many, Eden Whitney has been snubbed by the ton. The solution: rusticating in the Scottish wilderness, miles from all temptation. Except, of course, for brawny, charming Alasdair. The man is so exasperating she’d likely kill him before they reach the border—if someone else weren’t trying to do just that. Now Eden and Alasdair are plunging into a scandalous affair with his life and her reputation at stake—and their hearts already irreparably lost…
Alec wasn’t surprised she’d gotten herself into trouble. As far as he was concerned, she was an accident waiting to happen. But it startled him to hear that Lady Reese was unhappy with her. The woman adored her daughter and, according to Wolf, was convinced that Edie could do no wrong.

Good day and thank you so much for having me today. For those of you that don’t know me yet, my name is Adrienne Woods. My debut series, The Dragonian Series, are the stories that got my writing career into first gear.
The Dragonian Series are all about dragons inside the world of Paegeia. Dream Casters is about Sandmen that help protect the world from evil that is in the form of Shadow Casters, which are also the ones that love to create those nasty dreams called Nightmares. They dwell on people’s doubts and fears –strive off it– and the Light Casters, well they help with protecting the good and creating beautiful dreams that helps us normal folk into reaching all our dreams, turning them into a reality.
The two series’ are far from one another so if you have read the Dragonian Series; you are not going to get the same feeling, setting, mood, etc. with Dream Casters. Each of my stories are unique, own voice and completely different from one another.
How I came up with this idea: Well it was easy. All my stories get created from my curiosity. I always wondered what the world would’ve been like if Dragons existed and poof, not able to find a story that could help me with this curiosity of mine; I created The Dragonian Series to help others that have the same type of problem as me.
This time, well I wondered about the Sandman. Why is it only him, alone? There are so many people and how on earth can he do everything by himself? Even Santa has helpers, but the Sandman has none, so I created Dream Casters. I gave him helpers and poof, it’s how it all started. As easy as that.
You just need an idea; a character, their friends, family, where the journey leads them to etc. and you will have a story.
I have plenty more curiosities that are the outline of more series, like I said, you just need something that triggers an idea and you will have a story.
I hope you’re going to love Dream Casters as much as you have The Dragonian series, but just remember, the two stories are miles apart from one another.

Series: The Dream Caster Series
Mr. Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da…..Seventeen year old Chasity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children’s story parents tell their children to get them to sleep. At least she thought it was, until the day a mysterious light golden sand appeared in her hands during a high school prank that went horribly wrong. A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep.
Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking truth of her heritage- she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams.
However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares.
Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is going to discover just how different they can be.

About Victoria Zak
Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Before having kids, Victoria spent fifteen years in the veterinary business and volunteered in pet rescue.
“One of my most rewarding jobs was finding unwanted animals their forever homes.”
A writing career was the last item listed on her bucket list, until she discovered that she wanted to put her stories on paper and breathe life into her characters. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn.
“Fourteenth century Scotland was a fascinating time in history. Not only was Scotland fighting for their freedom from the English king, their own people fought each other; clan vs clan. Though being a woman of the twenty-first century, I wouldn’t want to live in those unsettled times. But writing historical fiction paranormal romance allows me to escape into their world and breathe a fresh air of romance and magic into that era, which I love to do.”
