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!

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.

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)

familiarsale500

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.

New Release – Restless Sea Lord & Special Deals

I’m excited to tell you that Restless Sea Lord – Book 1 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series is now live! Rowen the Restless is one of the bastard triplets of the king and is set on revenge toward the father that wanted them killed. Lady Cordelia gets caught in the midst of a raid and is taken captive by Rowen – the pirate.

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.

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.

rumpel500

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.

sealordsboxfull500

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.
