Rogues to Lovers is Here!

Finally, the long awaited Rogues to Lovers set is here! 7 bestselling authors bring you 7 all new stories that are based on the Legend of the Blue Rose. When the rare blue rose blooms, enemies will turn to lovers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My contribution to the set is Scottish Rose. Coira MacDuff, the heroine of my book was a secondary character in Aidan – Book 2 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. She is betrothed to an English lord but to her horror, he takes her back to Liddel Castle where she and her sister were recently captives and put in hanging cages by the English. Can a woman look past her horrific past to find love in the future with a man who is related to the man who once kept her captive?

I’d like to also invite all of you to the facebook party for Rogues to Lovers that is happening tonight from 5:30 – 9 pm Central time. I’ll be kicking off the party with a live video. There will be lots of giveaways, contests, games and fun. There is even going to be a live video straight from a historical romance conference where Amy, Lauren and Collette will fill us in on what’s happening there. So come join me as well as authors Laurel O’Donnell, Lauren Smith, Catherine Kean, Amy Jarecki, B.J. Scott and Collette Cameron. My book, Scottish Rose has a dog on the cover. I was inspired to write a dog into the book because of my own rescue granddog that has been keeping me on my toes and away from writing since the spring. I have to share this photo with you. It was not done intentionally, but I laughed aloud when I realized the resemblance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you like dogs, I also want to tell you about another book with a dog in it. It’s Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. My hero, Alastair MacPherson has a very troublesome but loveable dog named Cerberus. You won’t want to miss this one. It is also now available in audiobook format. And coming up is Book 2 of the series, Seductive Secrets which will release on Sept. 26th. My Secrets of the Heart Series empowers women. The daughters of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown are in a secret society of strong women set up by the late queen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of dogs, I have put together a boxed set where my heroes all have at least one dog and one of them even has a dozen dogs! It is called Loyal Hearts. You can pick it up for a limited time for only 99 cents. (Kindle Unlimited reads free.) It has over a thousand pages of romance, intrigue . . . and dogs.

Now, getting back to the Rogues to Lovers release. To celebrate, I have a contest for you. I am giving away a pair of blue rose earrings along with the audiobook of Aidan. (You can listen and find out about Coira before you read her story.) I am also giving away a signed copy of Highland Spring, Book 1 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series.

Enter through the rafflecopter below.

Hope to see you all at the facebook party. And remember, as said by Anne Bronte: He who dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose. Rogues to Lovers, available on amazon, kobo, barnes and noble and iBooks.

Finally Home is here!

Hi everyone!

I am excited to tell you that the first book in my Sweet Nothings Series, Finally Home, has arrived. This will be a contemporary series with novellas that are sweet and clean and full of romantic emotions. It won’t take you behind the closed bedroom door, but none of the romance is compromised and these books will be filled with kisses, memories, light touches, gentle caresses, and a whole lot of attraction and romance. So why not give it a try?

Finally Home is a story I started years ago and found recently. I decided I really liked it and wanted to finish it. This is the story of a second chance romance between Allie Martinez and Logan MacQuaid. It is also a secret baby romance since I always love those. Of course, they all have happy endings.

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to tell you that I have finally gotten back to my young adult series that is based on dark, twisted nursery rhymes. It is my Once Upon a Rhyme Series. Mary, Mary (Quite Contrary) is book 1 and is now available with a brand new cover. On preorder is Book 2, Muffet (Little Miss Muffet) and Blue Book 3, (Little Boy Blue) is coming soon.

These are spooky tales set in contemporary time but with a paranormal twist. The books can be read and loved by all ages. So follow Raven Birchfield and her friends as they fight off evil characters of ancient nursery rhymes who start to invade their world. Muffet is on preorder now for only 99 cents and will be released on October 4th, just in time for Halloween.

If you like paranormal stories, you can enter the All Things Magical giveaway and have a chance to win a kindle ereader, giftcards and even ebooks. Be sure to follow me on Bookbub for an extra entry. Just click the photo to enter – and be sure to check out the bookfair while you are there.

If you haven’t already preorder Seductive Secrets, you’ll want to pick it up for only 99 cents while the price lasts. Exciting news: I have my narrator working on the audiobook right now, so it should be available around the same time as the ebook which releases on Sept. 26th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are a contemporary reader, I’ve decided to put the Small Town Sinners and Saints boxed set on kindle countdown. This includes the first FOUR full-length books of my 12 book Tarnished Saints Series. If you move quickly, you can pick it up for only 99 cents, but the price will go up every few days. Don’t forget the Tarnished Saints Christmas Series Prequel is always free on all venues. After you get it, treat yourself to the audiobook as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you are all enjoying the end of summer.

Summer Reading Specials!

Finally, the rain has stopped and now we’re under a heat advisory for the weekend. How is it by you? I hope you are enjoying your summer. I just wanted to send a quick note letting you know about 2 new specials I am running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first is a boxed set called Stolen Brides. I’ve chosen 5 books from some of my series that have stolen brides in them. This set has a little of everything from a Viking to medieval/Scottish warriors, a lady pirate, Rapunzel trapped in a tower, and even a bonus book including a black jack dealer who wakes up married to the wrong twin!

Get your copy of Stolen Hearts for only 99 cents to read Highland Spring, A Viking’s Promise, Lady in the Mist, Lady in the Tower and Seducing Zeb. If you are a kindle unlimited member you read all the series the books are from for free!

My second summer special is the ENTIRE Tangled Tales Series Books 1-7 in one boxed set for you called Tangled Tales: The Complete Series. Now, you can read one book right after another without having to stop. Escape into the magical medieval world of the de Bar siblings on their quests to break their curses – while they happen to find love along the way. These books bought separately, would cost almost $20. But for a limited time you can pick up the entire series for only $9.99. And of course, KU reads free!

It is only a week away from the release of Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. You can still preorder it for the discounted price of $2.99 but just a warning, the price will be going up shortly after the release date of July 6th.

Now, for the winners of my last blog contest: $10 amazon gift card: Denise H. and Audiobook/ebook of her choice: Jennifer P. (Winners have been notified.) If you didn’t win, why not hop on over to my Highland Secrets Facebook Party Page where I have two pre-party contests in progress. Click the GOING button if you think you might stop by on July 6th.

Cover Reveal, Contest & Free Book!

Hello and I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend.

As you all know by now, I’ve been publishing my father’s poems into books as a thank you to him for all the things he’s done for me my entire life. He is always thinking of others and never himself so I thought it was time I did something special for him. He will be 89 this year, and having his poems published to share with all of you has been a thrill for him. I also thank you for all the reviews.

 

Recollection: A Treasury of Assorted Poems is his third and last book for now. (Unless he starts writing more.) As a Father’s Day gift to you from my father, the book is FREE through the 21st. It is also available in print. Don’t miss his other two books, Reflections, and Squeaky the Squirrel.

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to tell you about a special project I’m involved in. It is a multi-author set called Rogues to Lovers: The Legend of the Blue Rose. It is now available on amazon to preorder for only 99 cents! These are all NEW stories by USA Today and Bestselling Authors. You can also preorder it from iTunes, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble. Release date is Sept. 11th. My story is called Scottish Rose. It is the story of Coira MacDuff who some of you might remember was the sister of my heroine in Aidan – Book 2 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. More about her story coming up later on.  

I’ve been working on Seductive Secrets – Book 2 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. This is the book about Willow, daughter of Rook who is one of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. It isn’t available on preorder yet, but I was excited to show you the cover. So here is a sneak peek of what’s to come. And if you haven’t already pre-ordered your copy of Highland Secrets – Book 1, there is still time. The price of the book will go up right after the release date of July 6th, so don’t wait!

And if you are on facebook, don’t forget I am having pre-party contests up until Highland Secrets is released. You can win this beautiful bracelet as well as other prizes. Go to my facebook PARTY PAGE to enter and click GOING if you might make it to the party on July 6th.

Free book for the holiday, plus a contest!

I wish everyone a good Memorial Day weekend. It is very hot and muggy in the Chicagoland area. While I like hot weather, this is much too soon. Update on my granddog, Banshee, is that she is still a handful, but she is getting better each day. She has overcome her fear of going up stairs, and has found a new job patrolling the yard for birds, squirrels, and today she even saw a stray fox in the driveway! She is so cute, I just have to show you the latest photo of her. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since school will be out soon, I have decided to offer Teaching Philip – Book 8 of my Tarnished Saints Series for FREE from May 27 – 31. Philip Taylor is a teacher, experimenting with online dating, trying to find the perfect woman. When the new principal comes to town, he has no idea Taylor Phillips (who even has his name – but backwards) is there to take his job. Philip has a lot of quirks and is very clean. Taylor is messy. They are opposites and don’t get along. Think of this as an “Odd Couple.” Lots of laughs are in store when they find out they’ve been dating each other online and didn’t even know it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is also the last day, May 27th, to get Judging Judas – Book 3, for 99 cents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I just finished a new novella that will be in the Rogues to Lovers boxed set with six other authors. These are all brand new books. The theme of the set is the Legend of the Blue Rose. When the blue rose blooms, enemies turn into lovers. It is already on preorder for only 99 cents at iTunes and Kobo. Watch for it on Barnes and Noble any day now. And it will be on preorder on amazon on June 11th. Order it now, and it will be delivered to your e-reader on Sept. 11th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now, for a quick contest. You can win a $10 amazon gift card or a signed copy of Restless Sea Lord by entering through the rafflecopter below. The contest closes on June 2nd, so be sure to enter right away!
