“Even the very first time I saw you, I had the feeling that you wouldn’t be good for me.”

Not even Emma’s worst nightmares could have prepared her for the dramatic change that takes place in her life. After the sudden death of her mother, she has no choice but to go and live with her Uncle and his family in the sleepy town of Portree on the Scottish Isle of Skye.

The last thing she expects is to fall in love there. From the very first moment she meets Calum, his mysterious aura captivates her. He casts a spell on her, and even his seeming disinterest does little to change this. His contradictory behavior only adds to his allure. But before long this facade begins to crumble, and eventually even he gives in to his feelings. When he reveals his true identity to her one day, she flees from him. But it’s too late, for she has already falling head over heels…



'Tis the season for mad craziness and I'm sorry I've no time to read Marah Woolf's SilverMoonLight so as a consolation I asked her to tell us more about the saga. Y'all don't mind a little teaser right?



SilverMoon Saga
"Even the very first time I saw you, I had the feeling that you wouldn’t be good for me."

Not even Emma’s worst nightmares could have prepared her for the dramatic change that takes place in her life. After the sudden death of her mother, she has no choice but to leave Washington and to go and live with her Uncle and his family in a sleepy town named Portree.

The last thing she expects is to fall in love there. From the very first moment she meets Calum, his mysterious aura captivates her. He casts a spell on her, and even his seeming disinterest does little to change this. His contradictory behavior only adds to his allure. But before long this facade begins to crumble, and eventually even he gives in to his feelings.

When he reveals his true identity to her one day, she flees from him. But it’s too late, for she has already fallen head over heels...

A fantastical, mythical book with fascinating creatures that anyone would love to encounter. Immerse yourself in the story of Emma and Calum.


Great Scots!
When speaking of beautiful Scottish legends and myths, images of mysterious forests and misty mountains as well as rugged shores and gloomy castles are raised in people’s minds.

Against this background, not only fairies, elves, goblins, and Selkies gather around, but also mermaids, witches, magicians and all kind of other fable creatures can be found.

The best-known and for certain the most implausible legend has to be Loch Ness. Within the SilverMoonSaga I reworked the story of Loch Ness and its monster. It serves as an instrument which is used by the Shellycoats to protect their sacred spring. Tradition has it that their goddess created the Shellycoats by using this spring.

A completely different and rather unknown legend is the one called Fairy Flag. The flag is the most precious possession of the clan of the MacLeod. As long as this banner is possessed by them, the clan is under the protection of the fairies. Legend has it that the flag holds magic powers.

Scottish legends are particularly full of fairies and elves. Sometimes they are nice and helpful. At other times they can be quite vengeful and mean. My fairies live in Avallach because the return to their magical realm is blocked. However, we do not know what appears to be the truth or legend. Therefore, I added a new story to all these already existing myths. I have conjured up a new story from all these most diverse legends and dipped it in a silver moonlight.


The Players
Emma is the ordinary and reserved girl who has to move to Scotland to live with relatives she’s never met because her mother’s deceased. In her spare time she enjoys reading and painting. Her passion for painting nearly becomes fatal for her in SilverMoonLight. In addition, she loves to swim, but only in swimming pools. Emma repels public waters like the devil fears holy water. She suffers from aquaphobia – abnormal fear of water. That’s a legacy of her mother – at least this is what Emma thinks.

Shortly after her arrival in Portree on the Isle of Skye, Emma takes part in a rescue operation of stranded whales. There, she meets Calum for the first time. He’s the one - in defiance of common sense – accompanying the whales back to sea. Within an instant Emma succumbs to his fascinating appearance. But in the weeks to come Calum ignores her deliberately. He does so until the day Emma dares to go into a lake’s water for the first time in her life.


Evil Knievel 
My villain’s name is Elin. At first he is simply furious, but when he learns that Calum leads a forbidden relationship with Emma, Elin swears to destroy them both. He’s willing to use all possible means to do so. Throughout the story it becomes obvious that only his own death can save Emma, Calum and the magical world from falling apart.



The Books
This is a trilogy


Tweet it!
Because Emma and Calum defend their love against all resistances and would like to share their luck with you.



Best Christmas gift ever received
My husband has had a pendant, which is consisting of book pages, made for me. The book pages used belonged to the first Twilight book. The pendant is my lucky charm, now.

Worst gift you ever gave anybody
I don’t remember that, so I tell you about the worst one I ever got: I was 12 and it was a terrible sweater with a blue and black zebra-print.

Current read & how is it in one word
Küss mich Santa by Marina Schuster who is a German author. Magical

If you can spend Christmas in any part of the world where would it be and why in one word?
That has to be Scotland. I simply love that country because its people are so friendly and relaxed.

Holiday must-have dish
I adore cheese fondues with fruits. Sadly, it has way too many calories, so you can only eat it once a year. On the second day of Christmas there’ll be crispy duck served with delicious dumplings and home-made red cabbage. All of the family is together.

  1. I haven't read SilverMoonLight either, but this is exactly what your 101 posts are for! Plus, if Melliane vouched for it, well then it has to be good because I trust her recommendations. That fugly sweater pales in comparison to my worst Xmas gift ever. Yup. I'm gonna leave you hanging.
