A Winning Recipe For Fun On July 4th!

Happy 4th of July to those of you who celebrate the holiday. I’ll hopefully be out on the lake watching the fireworks from the boat if the weather holds up. I’ve decided that this is my official start to summer. No more remodeling projects around the house. From now through fall, I am going to be relaxing, enjoying myself and believe it or not, finally starting a new series! I’ll tell you more about it in my next newsletter, but here is a hint: It’s Scottish, Medieval, and has something to do with those lovable but crazy guys in my Madmen MacKeefe series.

For now, I have a free book and a special deal to hold you over and give you a little more to read this summer. Hired Heart is FREE from July 4th to the 8th. This book takes place on a tropical island, but don’t let that fool you. It takes place at Christmastime, so we have a little Christmas in July going on here.

Remember the show Fantasy Island? This is a little like that where fantasies come true in a paradise-like setting. Samantha Forester has a crush on her Scrooge of a boss, Max Sutherland. So when he asks her to book a trip to Aragon Island where he can inspect the work of his construction crew, she takes the advantage of booking fantasies for the two of them without him knowing what he is walking into! (Some of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater make guest appearances in this fun story, so you don’t want to miss it.) Pick up a tropical drink and get ready for fun in the sun.

Get Hired Heart for FREE from July 4th – 8th. Kindle Unlimited members read free as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Medieval lovers, I decided to offer you one of my all-time favorite books on kindle countdown. Forgotten Secrets, Book 4 of my Secrets of the Heart Series is only 99 cents from July 4th through the 10th! Lady Morag is daughter of one of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. She is known to be a gossip, and can’t keep a secret for the life of her. But when she starts having feelings for Lord Bedivere and finds out he is an assassin, her power to remain silent is put to the test.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get your copy today for only 99 cents. The books in the series can be read in any order. Be sure to pick up a copy of the audiobook afterward for a discount! (KU reads series free)

Now, for a fun and easy treat to make for the holiday. When I wrote Lady of the Mist, one of the dishes being served was a Scottish Crowdie. This berry trifle is a modernized adaptation of the dish and a heck of a lot easier to make. Just click the link to get the recipe for Echo’s Berry Trifle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, I’m off to watch fireworks and hopefully catch a little sun. Until next time,

Start Reading the Bad Boys of Sweetwater for FREE!

Nearly twenty years ago, I came up with the idea for a series about 12 brothers. Crazy, I know. Plus, it took me forever to finish it. It all started with my idea of having a single father with six young boys who has been accused of murdering his second wife.

From now through April 10th, you can read this book, Doubting Thomas, Book 1, of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series for FREE! This is a little different from the rest of the books in the series because it focusses around a murder and a man who was too drunk to remember if he actually did it. Thomas deals with a lot of introspection in this book. He prays for an angel, but instead gets Angel DeMitri, an agent from Child Protective Services showing up on his doorstep. Will Thomas be able to prove his innocence, as well as that he’s a good father, or will Angel be the one to take his children away?

 

 

Read Doubting Thomas for FREE.

While this is Book 1, I also created a prequel to the series to explain about all the 12 siblings and how they earned the title of being called Tarnished Saints when they were children. Each chapter is devoted to one of the boys, setting up trials and vices they will have to deal with once they’re grown. I also include excerpts from each of the books in the prequel to give you a taste of what’s to come. Get Tarnished Saints’ Christmas – the Series Prequel FREE on all venues. Be sure to pick up the audiobook afterwards for a discounted price on amazon for a real treat. US link, UK link, CA link, AU link, IN link

This series is near and dear to my heart because it was inspired by things, people and places in my life. I grew up visiting my grandparents on the lake in Michigan, so some of the places in the series as well as some of the instances are real.

To make the deal even sweeter, I decided to put Luring Levi – Book 2, (UK) Judging Judas – Book 3, (UK) and Seducing Zeb – Book 4 (UK) on kindle countdown for only 99 cents through April 12th. (Countdown deals only available for US & UK readers.)

Here is a quick look at all of the brothers and their books. To find out more or to read excerpts from any of the books in the series, please stop by my website. Kindle Unlimited members read the entire series for free.
