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!

Thadbrand500

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.

Saintprequelbrand500

saintsbanner500

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.

Igniting Andrew now on Pre-Order

Just a quick note to tell everyone that Igniting Andrew – Book 11 of my Tarnished Saints Series is now on pre-order with a release date of May 11th! (Each book can be read alone. Watch for the last book of the series, Taming Thad, coming in June!)

Firefighter, Andrew Taylor, is a hero in more ways than one. He’s not only delivered Christina Goldstone’s baby, but has brought to the little town of Sweet Water, Michigan, their first fire station. Now the town will be protected, but will Christina feel the same way? A widow, single mother, and business owner at the mere age of twenty, Christina looks up to Andrew – her savior. But when he decides he wants to stay a bachelor and still tell her how to raise her baby and run her life, Christina realizes this is one firefighter who needs a fire under his butt to convince him to settle down.

Authors In Bloom Hop

Once again, it is time for the multi-author hop, Authors in Bloom. This spring I have a few new releases, and more on the way. A Viking’s Promise, my first Viking novella that’s been seen as part of the Sirens of the Northern Seas boxed set is now available as a stand alone book.

Brandr gives a dainty blue Forget-me-not to Kadlin as his promise that he’ll return from the raid and marry her. Kadlin is a seer and knows trouble in on the horizon, but never does she expect what the gods have in store for her. Only 99 cents and KU reads free!

Speaking of flowers, did you know that the herbs in your garden can be used for more than just flavoring a savory dish? Cayenne is used to fight viruses as well as reduce pain and swelling. Comfrey is used to heal wounds, and thyme is used to treat a cough. Tumeric relieves arthritis pain and Sage has been found to help those with Alzheimer’s Disease function more smoothly. And my all time favorite that I swear by is oil of Oregano – a natural antibiotic that will knock an illness out of you before it has time to start.

Some of you might be happy to know that the entire Daughters of the Dagger Series is now available in one boxed set for a limited time price of $9.99. (You save $7) And Kindle Unlimited readers can read for free!

Amethyst has now also been released as an audiobook, so you can not only read, but listen to the entire seriesdaggerfullbox500

Hello everyone, and welcome to spring! To celebrate the new season, I have a new release – Playing Nate, Book 10 of the Tarnished Saints Series.

Nate Taylor is a musician who owns a Bar and Grill that is in need of some major repairs. When he doesn’t have the money, it looks like he might lose it until a rich new florist moves into town and makes him a deal. She offers him a marriage of convenience for both of them to get what they want, but Nate is hesitant since she is ten years older than him. Will a business deal between two people with such an age difference turn into something much more personal after all?
