Reckless Highlander Now On Preorder/Contest Winners

It is less than two weeks away from my new book’s release. Reckless Highlander – Book 3 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series is now on preorder! It is only 99 cents but the price will go up to $3.99 shortly after release. Release date is 3/16.

Reed the Reckless is the last of the triplet bastards of the king to be pulled into Edward’s web. Reed feels his brothers have betrayed him by paying fealty to the king – their birth father. Reed wants to continue raiding, but without his brothers things aren’t so easy. A raid gone wrong brings him face to face with Maggie Gordon, his childhood sweetheart. Will Reed follow in his brothers’ footsteps and give up raiding and make an alliance with the king because of a woman? Find out in Reckless Highlander.

This series was a joy to write, and each brother had a personality of their own. I have also interwoven the game of chess into each book which plays an important part in the series, bringing the king and his bastards sons together. I love chess and have played it since childhood. In gradeschool, I was a force to be reckoned with, and would win all the time – even against the boys!

I hope you enjoy my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series and will take the time to leave a review or two for me. Don’t forget about the other books in the series. Destiny’s Kiss (Prequel), Restless Sea Lord – Book 1, and Ruthless Knight – Book 2. Ruthless Knight is only 99 cents but the price will change to $3.99 as soon as Book 3 is released. (KU reads series free.)

If you enjoy audiobooks, you’re in luck. My entire Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series will be in audiobook form within the next few months. Destiny’s Kiss (the prequel to the series) is already in audiobook form. You can expect the audiobook for Restless Sea Lord in the next couple of weeks.

Now, for the winners of my last contest. I ended up giving away a lot of prizes. To see the list of winners that is too long to post here, please look at last month’s post on my website next to the rafflecopter. Thanks to everyone for entering, and watch for another giveaway soon! In case anyone missed my new limited time boxed set, you can try a book from four different series in the Reluctant Brides Collection. This is a limited time offer, and only 99 cents (KU reads free.)

New Release – Ruthless Knight/Medieval Superstitions/Contest Winners

Today is release day for Ruthless Knight, Book 2 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Right now it is only 99 cents (KU reads free) but the price will be changing to $3.99 soon. My hero, Rook, is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. Rook and his brothers have vowed vengeance against the man who ordered their deaths at birth.

Back in medieval times, twins and triplets were considered a curse and not a blessing. Some thought the woman to have  laid with more than one man if she birthed more than one child at a time. Either way, twins and triplets were always considered unlucky. They were thought to have been spawned by the devil and that bad luck would come to those who had ties to twins or triplets. (I am not sure if triplets were actually seen in medieval times, but I like to be unique so you will find them in my story.)

Sometimes the first born was kept and the other twin killed. Sometimes they were all killed. And if one was left-handed, (like my hero) that was said to be devilish as well. If you read the prequel to my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, Destiny’s Kiss, you will find out the events that lead up to the birth of the triplets – their mother having been a twin. If you’ve missed Book 1, Restless Sea Lord, you will want to pick up a copy of that as well. The books all stand alone, but are best read in order if possible so no surprises will be ruined. Watch for Reckless Highlander – Book 3, coming this spring.

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.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As always, you can read all my books for free if you are a kindle unlimited member.

I’d like to leave you with a video from the new Indulgences Series. Pack up your suntan lotion and grab a tropical drink and lean back as you experience the magic of the island.

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.

It includes my brand new novella, which is the prequel to my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, called Destiny’s Kiss. The novella is only available in this set for now.
