Special Deals for the week!

As promised, I have a special deal on one of the books of my Tarnished Saints Series for the week. I chose one of my favorite books of the series, Judging Judas – Book 3, which is only 99 cents through May 27th.

Twelve brothers growing up together can’t be easy. Judas did some things he’s not proud of, and is trying to make amends with his brother, Levi, for being the one to send him to prison. Returning to his hometown as Sweet Water’s sheriff, Judas has a lot of work to do. The town is after him to make Levi take the goats off of the roof of his diner. But that is the least of Judas’ problems. When a pregnant teenage girl steals his squad car, he meets up with the girl’s mother, Laney McDermott – the girl he left at the altar in his younger days. And the surprises get worse when he realizes he has just arrested his own daughter!

Pick up your copy of Judging Judas for only 99 cents while the deal lasts. And don’t forget that you can read the prequel of the series, Tarnished Saints’ Christmas, for FREE on all venues. After you collect your free copy, you can pick up the audiobook for a discounted price. Watch for your email next week to find out which book of the Tarnished Saints Series I will be giving away for free!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of audiobooks, I have some exciting news for my historical readers. The very first series I ever wrote, Legacy of the Blade is in the process of being re-edited and put into audiobook form. The Legacy of the Blade Prequel is already available in audio, narrated by a new narrator to me, Kevin E Green who is from the UK. You have to hear his wonderful voice. He brings a whole new depth to my stories with the way he reads the books. He will be narrating the rest of the series too, and you can expect to see Lord of the Blade – Book 1, (the first book I ever wrote) in audiobook form this summer! If you’d like to hear a sample of the prequel, you can click on the cover to go to my amazon page to play the sample there, or to pick up your free copy of the ebook.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am also happy to tell you that I’ve finished Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. You can preorder your copy now, and it will be delivered right to your e-reader on the release date of July 6th.

I have all the covers for the series finished and I will say I think they are my best covers yet. I have included a tease of the cover Seductive Secrets – Book 2, Willow’s story – coming soon. Oh, and Fia’s younger sister, Morag plays a big role in the series. I have decided to add a fourth book to the series so Morag will have her story told too. Here is a tease for the cover of Seductive Secrets, Book 2.

This series is about the eldest daughters of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. The late Queen Philippa has chosen Fia, Willow and Maira to be part of her secret society of strong women. (That is all the secrets I will divulge at this time. Smile.)

Good news for my Western readers: Coming soon I will tell you about a new historical western series that is slated to release sometime next year. And check back next week to hear about a secret project I’m working on with six other authors. It is something you won’t want to miss! I will also have a special contest for you to enter.

CONTEST WINNER of an audiobook of Lady in the Tower from my last post is Janet Turak. Congrats, Janet!

Until next week –

She is a nine-month-old Blue/Brown Heeler and has more energy than all of us put together. However, she is learning quickly and is much calmer lately, thank goodness.

Since spring is here and gardening season is amongst us, I thought I would share a few gardening tips with you where pets are involved. After all, I have my famous secret garden that I do not want destroyed this summer by You-know-who!

Tips for pet-proofing your garden:

  • To keep dogs from lying down in flower beds, simply drive some short stakes into the ground throughout the bed.
  • Plant pungent herbs such as rosemary and sage or spread a ring of dried mustard or crushed red pepper around plants to keep pets out of a garden bed.
  • Spread a layer of coffee grounds and bitter orange in beds to keep out the cats and dogs. Coffee grounds are also a great fertilizer for your plants.
  • And here’s a gardening tip to help your pets: use cedar chips for pathways and in beds to help protect your pets from fleas.

 

For a chance to win a Kindle Fire or Nook or a $25 gift card, join the Authors in Bloom hop!  All the authors involved in the hop can be found at the end of this post. To qualify you have to visit each authors’ site and enter their contest for proof you were there.

A Special Christmas Gift For You!

I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! This year sped by so fast, I still can’t believe it is over. 2017 saw the release and/or completion of two new medieval series, Legendary Bastards of the Crown and Seasons of Fortitude. I also released the first book of a new series called Second in Command that takes secondary characters from any of my series and gives them their own story and happily-ever-after ending.

Here is a quick glance of the books or series I released in 2017.

As a special thank you present to all my readers, I am offering FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th, A Kiss to Die For boxed set. These are four full-length books of several of my series that have a murder mystery combined with, of course, romance as the mystery is unveiled. (KU reads all series free.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I want to tell you about another free book that is very different than what I usually post. My father is 88 years old, and when his grandchildren were kids, he used to write poems for them. I wanted to do something special for my father who has always been so loving and giving, never thinking about himself. So those same poems that meant so much to my children long ago now will live on forever in a book by my father called Squeaky the Squirrel (A Children’s Book of Poems.) This is a book for young children, but it can be enjoyed by everyone. The ebook is FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th. (If you prefer the picture book as a paperback, that is available for $9.99.)

What’s coming up on the agenda for me next year? First, you will see the completion of my Tangled Tales Series. These books are twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of fairy tales. Lady in the Tower (Rapunzel) is book 5 and will be released on Jan. 25th. You can preorder it now for the limited-time price of 99 cents by clicking HERE. If you like to read books in order, (although each book in all my series are stand-alones) here is the the entire series at a glance. Click on the photo to find out more or to read excerpts on any of the books.

Watch for the finish of the series, the stories about Cinderella and the Snow Queen, coming this winter. I also have another medieval series or two on the horizon that I think you will love. However, I am superstitious about saying too much too soon, so you’ll have to wait just a little longer to find out more. Expect another book or two in the Second in Command Series as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you enjoy audiobooks, please take a look at my audiobook library. Winter’s Flame – Book 4 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series is now available as an audiobook on amazon, itunes and audible. Listen to a sample on any of those sites. Other new audiobooks are Lady and the Wolf and Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. Watch for audiobooks of Just a Kiss (Frog Prince) and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast) coming in the next few months.

For a little holiday reading, you might want to try a few of my holiday themed and winter-based books such as Tarnished Saints’ Christmas (FREE on all venues), Or my Romantic Winter Wishes Collection that includes My Christmas Soldier, Hired Heart and Loving John99 cents and KU reads free. This is a limited time offer, so get yours before it is gone. 

I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
