Autumn Specials

I love the colors of autumn in the midwest, and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. To celebrate the season, I have a few specials for you.

My Highland Madness Boxed Set, the entire MadMan MacKeefe Trilogy is FREE through Oct. 23rd. (KU reads free) Three crazy Highlanders, Onyx, Aidan, and Ian of the MacKeefe clan are brought to their knees by three feisty women.














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)

Two more Halloween specials I have for you are books that are on kindle countdown for only 99 cents until the 25th. Familiar is the story of Slade Spencer, a warlock in denial, and his high school sweetheart, Susie Vasilly who he has no idea has been cursed and shapeshifts into a cat – his uncle’s Familiar each night. (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. Basil Wensilton III is the caretaker of Showman’s Hill cemetery, and needs to keep the other vampires in line. 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)



Curl up on a cool autumn day with one of these stories that’ll make a great Halloween read.

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.








Have a wonderful – and not too spooky, Halloween!

Summer Specials/New Preorder

I’m happy to announce that Touch of Gold – Book 4 of my Tangled Tales Series is now available for preorder for the special preorder price of only 99 cents! This is the twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin.


I used to love fairy tales as a child, but I sometimes didn’t like the endings. After all, nobody ever said they were happily ever after stories. So, being a romance writer, I thought it would be fun to take a traditional fairy tale and weave it into a paranormal romance. After all, most fairy tales were paranormal in some way.

In Touch of Gold, my hero, Kin (Rumpelstiltskin) is one of the de Bar siblings that has been cursed by the old witch, Hecuba. Kin is the luckiest of his siblings, always having good things come his way. But when his curse is turning everything he touches to gold, a good thing becomes just the opposite. Especially since it’s dangerous to touch his love interest, Olivia – the miller’s daughter.

This is a fun story and you can preorder it for only 99 cents, but shortly after the release date of August 17th, the price will go up to $2.99, so be sure to get your copy today. Find out more about the Tangled Tales Series, by clicking the series title. Or see the books on amazon; Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood), Just a Kiss (Frog Prince), and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast). And watch for Lady in the Tower, (Rapunzel) coming this winter.

For those of you who like boxed sets, Sea Lords and Ladies is a sampling of some of my books that take place on the high seas. It is a limited time special for only 99 cents, and KU reads free.


Another set you might be interested in that has not only one of my books in it, but books by bestselling authors, Emma Prince, Ria Cantrell, and Ruth Kaufman, is Medieval Hearts, which is also 99 cents and KU reads free. Limited time only.


I’ve been slowly revamping some of my bookcovers and just have to show you one that I am in love with. Here is my new cover for Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. Ian’s pet hound is featured on the cover. If you’ve read the MacMan MacKeefe Series, you’ll realize my heroes all have a soft spot in their hearts for their pets.  Aidan has his squirrel, and Onyx has his wildcat. And did you know that if you buy the ebooks of the MadMan MacKeefe series, you can get the audiobooks for only $1.99? You will see it on my amazon page. Tim Campbell is my narrator, and you can listen to a sample of his sexy interpretations of my characters on my amazon page as well.

And for those who like bad boy heroes, you will love my 12 Taylor brothers. You’ll have a chance to read Doubting Thomas – Book 1 of the Tarnished Saints Series for free from July 28th – August 1st, so be sure to remember to come back to get your free book to start you off in this romantic, humorous series.











Here is a recipe from the story of Doubting Thomas that is great to make for those summer picnics.

Igniting Andrew: Release Day

I am happy to tell you that Igniting Andrew – Book 11 of my Tarnished Saints Series is now available for purchase. (KU reads free.) Andrew Taylor is a firefighter who has brought fire protection to the little rural town of Sweet Water in the form of their first firehouse. Christina Goldstone is a widow with a baby – that Andrew has delivered. One of them is looking to settle down while the other still has wild oats to sow. Get your copy today. (Paperback coming soon.)Andrewbrand500

And now available for pre-order is the last book of this series – Taming Thad – Book 12. Thad Taylor is the youngest of the Taylor Twelve, and has his hands full when he makes a promise to a dying man and ends up marrying the man’s daughter – who he didn’t know was blind.

Twenty years ago, the idea of the Tarnished Saints Series was born. I had just started writing romance at the time and thought to myself – wouldn’t it be a great idea to have a series about twelve brothers – sons of a preacher – named after the 12 apostles – but they’re trouble with a capital T. Hence, the tagline was formed: The Taylor Twelve. Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble!


I must say, through the years I started to wonder what I’d been thinking to take on such a HUGE task. Doubting Thomas was written, but sat in the closet until 3 years ago when I started self-publishing. Luring Levi followed shortly afterwards, and Judging Judas had a long wait for its release. But now, three years later, all the boys’ stories have been told. (This was a very daunting project and I can’t say I ever plan on writing a series this long again!)

Thank you all for your patience through the years as I finished the series. This series is very close to my heart since it is based on some of my own life experiences. The setting is fictional – but real to me, as it is where I grew up visiting my grandparents on the lake. I see this series as books of memories of instances in my own life – added to new ones to make it a humorous, dramatic, and exciting series. These Taylor boys will make you laugh and make you cry, and before you know it, you’ll start believing that they are real. I feel like I know each and every one of them personally, and I wonder if you can guess which one or two are my favorites.

Thanks once again, and enjoy the troublesome Taylor brothers. Just click on their name and it’ll take you to their book on amazon. The books are available as ebooks or paperbacks: Prequel, Thomas, Levi, Judas, Zeb, Simon, James, Pete, Philip, John, Nate, Andrew and Thad! (These are my book sons, and I feel like a proud mother, having given life to each of them.)

Start your journey with the Taylor men with the Tarnished Saints’ Christmas – the series prequel that I’m offering free through Sat. May 14th.



Please join me at my facebook release party for Andrew on Wed. May 11th, from 5-9 pm Central time. I have a slew of guest authors and there will be games, giveaways and prizes, so you won’t want to miss it.

I also have a new book trailer for my Tarnished Saints and I hope you will enjoy it.
