Celebrating A Sexier New Book In Jean Hart Stewart's Songs Of The Mages Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of a sexier new book in Jean Hart Stewart's Songs of the Mages Series.

Jean feels she’s very much a Californian although she was born in Ohio. California has been home for a good many years. Life changed drastically for her when she was six and her father died incredibly from an errant golf ball. A dishonest insurance agent forced her sheltered mother to seek work, and she became a teacher. Her hours required Jean to be alone in the house in the afternoon, and since she was forbidden to leave till her mother got home, she became an avid reader. The local library supplied most of the books and she developed early her two of main interests, Jane Austen and King Arthur.

Reading is still one of her favorite activities, although she sometimes has to push it aside to make room for her enduring love of writing. Her journalism degree was used infrequently until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised she finally could devote her time to writing, her first love.

Jean's enchantment with the lore and legends of Druids and, therefore, delving into their history led to fascinating research that inspired her popular
Garland of Druids Series for Cerridwen Press. She's now enjoying writing stories filled with magic and romance for her Songs of the Mages Series, also for Cerridwen Press.

Few things in her life have been so satisfying, especially when all her books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Who would want to deny him? Not Jean!


QUEST FOR LOVE by Jean Hart Stewart and Lee Pearce 

Songs of the Mages Book 5 (can be read as a standalone story)

What happens when a connoisseur of women decides he wants to bed a never-been-touched actress who just happens to think he's worthless.

Jono thinks she'll be an easy conquest. But Hayley has never allowed a man near her, and she'd not about to break her rules for a Lothario like Jono. She's afraid nothing will change Jono, even if she lets him into her heart.

Then her young sister comes to visit, pursued by a pedophile. Jono must help, but can Hayley ever forget the waster he's been? Can Jono call on his mage powers to save them all from a sex maniac's vengeance?

  5. Congratulations on your latest release! I've read "Quest for Magic" and really enjoyed the story of Jono and Halley. I was transported to another time, another country and got lost in the story. I've really enjoyed reading the stories of all the mages in the family. Can't wait until the next one comes out.

  6. Mages are wizards, and I chose thembecause I like a touch of paranormal when I write. There are eight books in the mage series and this is the fifth. The next three are contracted for and will be coming out soon. All from Passion in Print. My first series was about Druids, and this is on the same order, following a family from 1898 to the near-present.

  7. De Nita, sorry I'm late for my own party, but I have a good excuse we won't go into. I have a co-author for this book because I had writer's block and couldn't finish the damned thing. Had over forty thousand pages, tried three re-writes, and it was lousy. Enter Lee, who added the fifteen thousand word I needed, and added them with a sexy flair.

  8. Dear bookwyrm...Gonna be mean and no tell you about the new series I've started. I'm excited about it, but need to get it under control first. Thanks so much for asking.

  9. Jean, I love your books and was honored to be asked to add my "two cents" worth to your story. It also allowed me to bring out the bad guy more - I love going to the dark side - perhaps I shouldn't be confessing to that! It's a great story. One I know people will love adding to their bookshelves.

  10. Thanks Lee, you're so great to work with....hope we can do it again.
