The Race Is On!

Last winter, I battled the cold and snow to do research on dog sledding, since I was writing Book 9, Loving John, of my Tarnished Saints Series. John is one of the 12 Taylor brothers. Sons of a preacher, but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble!

It had to be one of the coldest days I’ve ever experienced and yet these dogs didn’t seem to mind. I found out that almost any dog can be trained to be a sled dog, but some of the most popular breeds for this sport are Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and Siberian Huskies. There are wheel dogs and lead dogs, and terms such as Gee for right and Haw for left. The life of a musher is dangerous, hard work, and even consists of having to sleep outside in the harsh elements at times. (For the dogs, too.) It is a fascinating sport and I admire anyone who has the stamina to endure the races that can sometimes last for weeks and cover over a thousand miles.

While writing this series, I decided to give each of the brothers a personality and profession unlike any of the others. When I first started writing romance over 20 years ago, I read a romance novel that centered around the sport of dog sled racing. To this day it’s one of my favorite books, called Across A Thousand Miles by Nadia Nichols. So I decided John would have a love of dogs and be a musher. It is his dream to run the Iditarod. But when a sledding accident leaves him wounded, he heads back to his home town of Sweet Water, Michigan, to be with his brothers. It’s there that he meets the new doctor, Addey. She is the only woman who can bring hope back into his life.

Loving John is FREE through Jan. 22nd. Click on the title or the photo to get your copy. (KU reads series free.) Emerge yourself in the world of dog sledding this winter.

And don’t forget to pick up the FREE copy of the prequel, Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. The prequel is followed by the oldest brother, Thomas’s story, in Doubting Thomas. If you like a mystery, Thomas is accused of murdering his wife, and most readers are surprised when they find out who really did it. Only 99 cents for a limited time.

There are 12 books plus the prequel in this series, so don’t miss a one.

One last thing I wanted to tell you about was my latest book, Hired Heart. It is part of the multi-author Indulgences Series, but features the Taylor brothers, Levi, Simon, and Thad from Tarnished Saints, as well as the crazy Aunt Cappy and her new husband, Charlie MacAllister. I love to cross characters from one series over to another, and you will find that a lot, especially in my medieval books. 

That’s all for now, but next time I will tell you about my February release coming up, called Ruthless Knight – Book 2 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series.

It’s just a little over a month away until the Iditarod starts. So brush up on your dog sledding first by picking up a copy of Loving John!

Keeping Warm This Winter

About this time of year the winter blues creep in, and we find ourselves wanting to be anywhere in the sun. My new release, Hired Heart is part of new the multi-author Indulgences Series. The stories all take place on Aragon Island at the Indulgences Resort where the characters pay to live out their fantasies.

Samantha Forester is the assistant of the Scrooge of a man, Max Southerland. She’s had her eye on him for years but he barely knows she’s alive. So when he has her schedule a trip to Aragon Island so he can do followup on the eco-friendly villas his crew has installed, she sees her chance and takes it. She books fantasies for them while they’re at the island. But Max hates Christmas, and now they’re staying there through the holiday. Can she change the handsome bachelor’s mind before it’s too late?

This is the last book of the 12 book series (plus a free prologue) and I’m letting you in on the secret early. The series will be complete on the 14th, and can be read in any order. (KU reads free.) For those of you who have been asking me to continue the Tarnished Saints Series, you will find 5 characters from that series making guest appearances in my book, so you won’t want to miss it.

Medieval lovers, I have something for you as well. My book, Amber, Book 3 of my Daughters of the Dagger Series is FREE through the 13th. After you pick up a copy, you will be able to buy the audiobook for only $1.99.

Paranormal enthusiasts, from now through the 14th, Just A Kiss (Frog Prince), Book 2 of my Tangled Tales Series is on kindle countdown for only 99 cents.

 

What’s on the horizon? The next book in my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series is coming in February. Watch for Ruthless Knight. And if you haven’t already read the prequel to the series, Destiny’s Kiss, that was previously part of the Kissing Bough boxed set, you can now pick it up as a standalone book for only 99 cents. (Audiobook coming next month.)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don’t celebrate the holiday, then I wish you a happy day!

thanksgiving500

I am so thankful for every one of my readers, because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be doing a job that I love! Writing is my true passion. My first book was published by a traditional publisher back in 2000. It was called Eden’s Garden, but is no longer in print.

That was followed by my Greek Myth Fantasy Series published by a small press. At the time it was too hard to make a living on my scant royalties and I had to go back into the work world. I didn’t write a word for nearly ten years! Then, almost 4 years ago I lost my job and didn’t know what to do. A writer friend of mine suggested I start publishing my own books, and so I did.

Now, 56 books later I am so thankful to say I make a living doing what I love.

As a special thank you to my readers, I am offering Medieval Magick – my entire Elemental Series for only 99 cents (KU reads free) through the weekend. The price will go back up to $9.99 after that, so be sure to pick up a copy now.

Onyx kidnaps the Englishwoman, Lady Lovelle, and takes her with him to the Highlands to search for a missing Book of Hours that he hopes will save his mother from being executed.

Aidan is the keeper of the Stone of Destiny, and uses it as his pillow. When he dreams of a bonnie Scottish lassie, Effie MacDuff, he never expects her to trick him and steal the stone from under him.

Ian has a dark and troubled past, and when he sees the face of his dead enemy in the Samhain bonfire on All Hallow’s Eve, he knows trouble is brewing. And when he realizes his best friend’s sister, Kyla, has eyes for him, it turns out to be more than just a crush.

Get your copy of Highland Madness before it is no longer free. And if you want to read about Onyx’s sisters, you can read the stories of Ruby, Sapphire, Amber, and Amethyst, as well as the Prequel of my Daughters of the Dagger Series. (KU reads free)

Or if you enjoy a good vampire novel, you can read The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill that was inspired by a real-life circus train wreck.

But when the snoopy reporter, Cassie Briggs shows up looking for her missing sister, her virgin blood stirs the vampires, including himself in more ways than one. (KU reads free)

rubyrevisedkindle300sapphirerevisedkindle300amber300strevisedkindleamethystrevisedkindle300Did you know that the traditions of Halloween started back in the medieval times? It originated as a pagan tradition of Samhain and eventually the church got involved and called it All Hallow’s Eve, followed by All Souls’ Day. Children would go door to door daggerpreqdone300collecting soul cakes (trick or treating) and for each one eaten, a poor departed soul would be set free on that night when the veil was pushed aside and the dead could come back to life.

Hollowed out gourds with candles inside (jack-o-lanterns) were used to fend off evil spirits, and on this day men could dress like women, and vice versa (costumes.)  You can find out more about the tradition in my book, Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. I have it as part of a 99 cent boxed set for a limited time in Spellbound Hearts. Almost all of my books are free to read if you are a Kindle Unlimited member. So are the new multi-author boxed sets called Myth, Magic & Moonlight and Love, Honor, & Redemption. These are full-length books by bestselling authors, so pick up your copy for 99 cents today.
