James Taylor, the town’s resident cowboy, has been living on the MacAllister farm with his horses since he sold his ranch out west. Mindy and James remember each other from childhood – but never like this!

And The Drifter: Nessie Pemberton is a widow and works the stagecoach relay station with her young son and injured brother. Life is dangerous on the plains, and when Chase Masters arrives wounded, Nessie thinks he is the bandit who killed her husband.

Saving Simon – Book 5, Tarnished Saints Series – Free

From April 28th- April 30th, you can get a FREE copy of Saving Simon – Book 5 in my Tarnished Saints Series.

simon300Simon Taylor is an ex-navy officer and now the Safety Officer aboard the Seduction of the Seas cruise ship. When he saves Piper Westbrook’s life after she falls overboard during a storm, he takes a liking to the woman who is all business. That is, until he discovers she is trying to close down the marina in his hometown of Sweet Water, Michigan. Then a storm brews between them that only an experienced sailor would know how to ride out.

Can a man with a strong passion for sailing convince a woman who fears water to see through his eyes before it’s too late, or will a whirlwind romance be blown away and washed out to sea by one wrong decision?

grilledpeaches2300My Tarnished Saints books have some of my original recipes of the dishes my characters make and eat in the books. See my recipe page for the recipes from Saving Simon – Pippa’s Grilled Peaches and Ice Cream and Simon’s Catfish Chowder.

 

Saintsprequelfinal2300And don’t forget to pick up a copy of the series prequel: Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. It won’t be free much longer!

Watch for Teaching Philip – Book 8 of the Tarnished Saints Series which will be released sometime in late May.

The Tarnished Saints Series is a 12 book series about 12 brothers. Sons of a preacher, but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble.

Read excerpts from any of the books on my site. And watch the book trailers from the series below.

Happy spring to all of you. Thanks for your undying support, and if you enjoy my books, please be sure to leave a review for them on amazon. Thanks!

Authors In Bloom Garden Hop/New Release: Mary, Mary

The Winner of my Garden Basket is Lauren J. Thanks everyone for entering. Sign up for my email list so you’ll be sure to know about my next contest!

From April 8th- 17th you can win an e-reader of your choice or a $25 ebook giftcard by participating in the Authors In Bloom Garden Hop! In order to qualify, you must visit each participating author’s site (listed at the end of this post) and leave a comment, then enter the rafflecopter on Dianne Venetta’s site.AIB Logo200

Speaking of gardens, I’d like to announce my New Release – Mary, Mary. Raven Birchfield has moved into her deceased eccentric aunt’s house with her mother and younger brother. While planting a flower in her overgrown yard for her high school horticulture class, she hears a voice calling out the name Mary from a nearby graveyard. And when she uncovers an old book of nursery rhymes in the ground as well as a crystal necklace, her life takes a wicked twist. Nursery rhymes are really about past events in history and most of them are very horrid. So when Raven gets pulled into the body of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, she not only enters Mary’s world but can hear Mary’s psychopathic thoughts that are taking control of her own mind and filtering into her everyday life at school. Can Raven fight temptation when her heartthrob Dex Campbell has finally taken notice of her, or will she turn to Mary’s wicked ways instead?mary2500

This is the first of my Gnarled Nursery Rhymes Young Adult Series – a book that can be enjoyed by any age. It is also a Golden Palm Contest Finalist! Get a copy of Mary, Mary, for free through April 10th, or for only 99 cents afterwards. And watch for Muffet – Book 2, coming soon!

Gardening Tip: I love to garden and would love to share a tip with you that has worked wonderfully for me. Adding coffee grounds to your compost or around your plants will give them a boost. You can strengthen your roses, add blue color to your hydrangeas, and get rid of garden pests like slugs by putting a ring of coffee grounds around the plant. Try it!

Another of my books that has to do with gardening is The Duke and the Dryad: Book 2 – Earth, from my Elemental Series. Rae-Nyst is an elemental of the earth and can control nature – but not Duke the Destroyer who threatens everything she believes in.

Dryad300

dragonlordbox300 I’d also like to announce the release of my new paranormal boxed set Dragon Lords and Amazons. This book features The Dragon and the DreamWalker: Book 1 – Fire, from my Elemental Series and Thief of Olympus from my Greek Myth Fantasy Series.  For a limited time you can get this boxed set for only 99 cents!

Along with the Authors in Bloom contest, I am having a contest of my own. I am offering a prize of a gardening basket that includes a signed print copy of my small town contemporary romance, Doubting Thomas from my Tarnished Saints Series. Since I mentioned coffee earlier in my gardening tip, it also includes a $10 Starbucks giftcard, as well as a basket full of fun things you can use in your garden. Enter through the rafflecopter below.basket200

Iancreatecoverdouble200

Take a trip to the bonnie hills of the Highlands as 3 crazy friends find the unconventional women of their dreams. First, there’s Onyx (secret brother of the Daughters of the Dagger.) With his crazy eyes of two different colors, he takes the English Lady Lovelle captive as he searches the Highlands for the coveted Book of Hours.

His friend, Aidan, sleeps on a rock as a pillow. He is the guardian of the Scots’ coronation icon, the Stone of Destiny. Or I should  say he is guardian until he lets his trust of another Scot, Effie MacDuff, get in his way. She steals it from under him to give to the English to save her sister’s life.

The third madman is Ian. He’s the most mentally tortured of the bunch, and on All Hallow’s Eve he sees the spirit of Tearlach MacTavish in the bonfire. He’s killed and buried this enemy three years ago, but now it seems he’s come back from the grave. To make matters worse, his good friend, Kyla, has been given to this wretched man in marriage by the MacKeefe clan’s chieftain in order to seal an alliance.

For a limited time the MadMan MacKeefe Series is on sale in ebook form for only $2.99. (So is the Legacy of the Blade Series.) Watch my Print Books page for more of my novels now in print, and those coming to paperback soon!

New Release – The Drifter

drifter2500I’m happy to say I’ve just released a new Western novella called The Drifter. I’m also making it available to you from now until Thursday – 1/12-1/15 for Free! I just ask that you stop by the amazon page and leave a review for me if possible. And if you haven’t had a chance to read my last two western novelettes, The Bounty Hunter and The Gambler, please do so. I am happy to say that they have both ranked in Amazon’s top 100 best-selling westerns since last month. Another older short story western in the same style as these is The Outlaw.

The Drifter: Chase Masters is a drifter who also happens to look like the bandit, Bloody Bart. When he meets up with the Dover Gang on the Deadwood-Cheyenne stagecoach trail, Bart winds up dead and Chase assumes his identity to help stop the gang from robbing and killing the passengers on the stage.

Nessa Pemberton is a widow with a young son and a maimed brother who runs the relay Tumbleweed Station on the dangerous Wyoming Territory plains. Chase shows up wounded in her barn, and she thinks he’s the bandit, Bloody Bart, who’s killed her husband.

I had a fun time researching the stagecoach line in the old west, as well as found lots of interesting tidbits of information. Did you know they had many different names for whiskey in the old west? Some of them were, rot gut, prairie dew, tarantula juice, wild mare’s milk, bottled courage and dynamite, among others. Watch my site, as this year I am planning on incorporating a Random Research page where I will take one book or series at a time and tell you interesting things I’ve found while researching to write the story.

pandora300I also wanted to let you know that for a limited time, you can get The Pandora Curse for 99 cents. Vara the Conqueror is plagued by the Furies in her head and also cursed with the vices of lust, gluttony, greed, anger and jealousy that her great-grandmother Pandora has released from the box years ago. Nikolai the seer is a demi-god and son of Hera, sent on a mission to collect the vices from Pandora in secret. (I love the minion sent by Hera to aid Nikolai who shapeshifts and brings humor to the story.)

I’ll also be having a Valentine’s Day giveaway/contest, so be sure to watch for more details coming soon.
