Are they?

What They’re Saying



“The Transformation of Anna is first-rate fantasy, with a healthy dose of romance added in. Wilson has created a plausible, multi-dimensional world complete with gods, mythologies, and engaging characters. The world Wilson has created in The Transformation of Anna is complex, but infinitely and easily accessible to the reader. It’s quite an amazing and impressive work with lots of action and adventure, heroic characters, and an elegant and satisfying romance.”—Jack Mangus, Readers’ Favorite

“The Transformation of Anna by Charlene A. Wilson is a beautifully stunning and deeply touching story of the darkest of treachery, the rebirth of lost love, and the discovery of hidden secrets. Being left absolutely breathless and deeply astonished after reading such an extraordinary story is a new experience for me. I am anything but disappointed in this superbly enchanting and endearingly exhilarating tale of deeply true and lasting love. My heart was captured and lost to this spellbinding journey!”—Amber McCallister, The Wonderings of One Person.

Echoes (Book Two)



Nothing is sacred to Cole when it comes to keeping his love – not even covenants made with gods, and when Lord Dressen’s obsession to have Anna soars, Cole pulls out all the stops.  But, through all his efforts, lofty or damned, the truth remains.
Will echoes of another life cause him to fail?
“Every breath you take is a song to my soul.”

What They’re Saying


“Echoes is the second installment in Wilson’s Cornerstone Deep series, and was just as much a pleasure to read as the first. The timeless love story is brought to life in a new and creative way that pulls at your heartstrings and keeps you reading….”—Annette, Gothic Mom Reviews

“A touching and magickal romance story, Echoes picks right up where The Transformation of Anna left off. Charlene pens her characters well written and brings them to life in this fast paced, totally hard to put down sequel. Recommended for all romance and paranormal romance fans.”—My Cozy Corner


“Echoes is a shockingly spectacular sequel to the Transformation of Anna that will leave you reeling from the mind-blowing revelations and truly surprising twists of fate.” — Amber, The Wonderings of One Person


“Cornerstone Deep Echoes is as interesting as Book 1. Those who enjoyed the first book will definitely relish this book too… The book is a romance that touches on past lives and rebirth. This paranormal angle makes it an exciting read… Lord Dressen’s obsession for Mianna forms the somber angle of the book. It is so powerful that he will do anything to possess her. Cole’s struggle to continue his love with Mianna, in spite of Lord Dressen’s dark presence, makes the story very exciting and adds that bit of intrigue and suspense. All the characters are skillfully etched by the author. I look forward to reading the next part of this series to find out where the author will take us.”— Mamta Madhavan, Readers’ Favorite

Destiny (Book Three)



Angels, Gods, High Ones… Could anything else find its way into the prophecy caused by their father, Sylis Shilo, the renowned realm traveler? Vincent understands there were things in his father’s work he wasn’t privy to simply because his soul was too young, but how could this be kept a secret from even his brothers? The more he learns, the more he’s glad he hadn’t known.

The sentinels of Cornerstone Deep are in for their most difficult challenge yet. The portal to the Spectrum of the Realms must be sealed, and punishments must be carried out. Will the Gods take all that is dear to Vincent, James, and Cole Shilo?

“Flesh cannot take away that which our souls have united.”


What They’re Saying


“Charlene Wilson has done it again! Just when you think Cole and Anna/Mianna have had their happy ending, Wilson twists the knife in another direction. The Gods of Meridian are calling their sons back and the Shilo brothers must say goodbye to Cornerstone Deep – but this is not the end; it’s only the beginning! Whimsical magic, true love, and family secrets abound in the Cornerstone Deep series, and book three, Destiny, is no exception.”—Author J.D. Brown

Your Wild Heart

Your Wild Heart_500x750Wildlife biologist, Isabelle Acker, meets sexy park ranger, Wyatt Powell. His Wolf sits up and takes notice of her, but when he learns why she came to the park, he becomes wary of her intentions. After all, as far as the general population knows, there are no wolves in the Black Hills.

Ordered by his Alpha to keep an eye on the smoking-hot biologist, Wyatt finds it difficult to keep his hands to himself. He wants to possess her, to share everything about his life, but that might endanger the Tao Pack. But the attraction proves too great and, unable to deny his Wolf, he takes her with a passion he didn’t know he possessed.

However, their sexual bliss is short-lived, and on the night of the full moon, more than one secret is revealed. When all is said and done, they must each decide—is what they have between them true love or just hot sex?

From the shadows of the surrounding foliage, Wyatt Powell watched the slip of a woman move about her campsite with ease. The business card she had left with the girls at the ranger office read, Dr. Isabelle Acker, Wildlife Biologist. It seemed, she was used to camping outdoors.

But even if she had been camping for over five years, it was damn foolish of her to be out here alone.

Normally, he wouldn’t have paid much attention, but when he’d overheard the girls saying she was well known for her study of wolves, he’d been compelled to investigate.

Everyone knew there were no wolves in the Black Hills.

For generations, his pack had cultivated that belief. And in truth, there were no wolves. At least not what one would call a “normal” wolf. Wolf shifters were a whole other matter.

So, what brought Dr. Acker here?

She’d set up her camp in a secluded spot, well away from the established sites. Perhaps she wanted privacy. But for what?

The longer he watched, the more fascinated he became by her. It wasn’t because she seemed at ease in the outdoors. Nor was it just a physical attraction. Sure, she was pretty for a human but not in a remarkable way. She was an average height with an athlete’s build. Her plain brown hair had been pulled into a simple ponytail, but it did glitter a bit when she stepped into patches of sunlight.

Yet something about her had captured his interest. Both man and beast wanted to learn more.

He was about to retreat into the woods when he saw her gather a towel and a few bathing items and head to the nearby stream. His conscience argued he should leave and allow her some privacy, but the bulge behind his zipper insisted on following her. Part of him wanted to know how much of a nature lover she was.

Like a deer, she picked her way over the rocks until she found a spot next to the river. Before sitting, she slowly turned her head in both directions scanning the area.

Wyatt had been taught by his Sioux grandfather the value of patience when tracking prey. Or a foe. Despite his base attraction, he had yet to determine which she might be.


About Dena

Dena-RomCon1_6-2014closeI’m a mother, employee, author, jewelry designer, daughter and sister. And not necessarily in that order! We share our home with a very loving and loyal Labrador-mix dog named Sadie and a spoiled grey tabby, Bijous. As the mother of two rowdy boys, I can often be found on the practice field or sidelines of some sport (football is huge in our house). Books are my escape. I’ve always been a fan of romance and a believer in true love. It’s great being able to create happy-ever-afters whenever I want.

1d88b1d3c71dc068913f877adf74d9c7Humorous vampire romance series about a group of vampires protecting the President of the United States. 

Vampires exist among us. They can be our neighbor, best friend, our child’s teacher … 

They alter their aged appearance based upon the amount of blood they consume. They move to a new area, drink a lot of blood, and appear young. Slowly they limit their intake of blood and age, right in front of our unsuspecting eyes. After decades, they fake their death, move, and do it over and over again. 

Most live quiet lives in an effort to blend in. 

Some however want power and control. 

The Colony is an elite group of vampires sworn to protect the President of the United States from these rogue vampires. 

When Raymond Metcalf, vampire coven master of the Colony, teams up with a federal operative of the human female persuasion–who has no idea that vampires even exist–will his mission or his heart be compromised first? 

Career military woman, Alex Brennan, is being offered the promotion of a lifetime and with it a romance that she has desperately been seeking. Does she dare accept the position as Director of the Colony, an elite group of deadly creatures of the night and risk a dangerous romance with a man who isn’t even human? 

Together, can they save the President? 

[This book is a romance, not a political thriller. The President, Secret Service, and Washington DC are the backdrop which supports the romance. This book is for readers 18+ of age.]

ReginaMorris_125x220A Message From Regina

I am an Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author (in the categories of Paranormal, Vampire, Romantic Series and Romantic Comedy) for my suspenseful paranormal romances that make up the COLONY series. I love paranormal romances featuring vampires, but my personal taste is lighthearted and humorous – not horrific and gory.

The White House, the President, and Washington D.C. are merely backdrops to support my romance stories. They offer some suspense, but my books are romances and not political thrillers.

I have lived in many different parts of the world, and grew up on military bases. My father was career military and CIA; his father worked with the Secret Service. I graduated high school in Germany and I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received a degree in Computer Science with a minor in math. My specialty is social media and I love connecting with people.

I own the complete rights to my novels – copyright as well as all distribution rights. I published my novels under my own publishing company Silkhaven Publishing, LLC.

I live in Austin, Texas with my husband, two children, and two puppies. I enjoy meeting with my monthly critique writing groups and meeting other writers in the Austin area through the WLT and Austin RWA events.

Besides writing, I have past work experience as a software engineer (current job), public speaker, sales representative (#1 National Sales Rep for an online company years ago), and I am an amateur portrait and sports photographer.
