Reckless Highlander Now On Preorder/Contest Winners

It is less than two weeks away from my new book’s release. Reckless Highlander – Book 3 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series is now on preorder! It is only 99 cents but the price will go up to $3.99 shortly after release. Release date is 3/16.

Reed the Reckless is the last of the triplet bastards of the king to be pulled into Edward’s web. Reed feels his brothers have betrayed him by paying fealty to the king – their birth father. Reed wants to continue raiding, but without his brothers things aren’t so easy. A raid gone wrong brings him face to face with Maggie Gordon, his childhood sweetheart. Will Reed follow in his brothers’ footsteps and give up raiding and make an alliance with the king because of a woman? Find out in Reckless Highlander.

This series was a joy to write, and each brother had a personality of their own. I have also interwoven the game of chess into each book which plays an important part in the series, bringing the king and his bastards sons together. I love chess and have played it since childhood. In gradeschool, I was a force to be reckoned with, and would win all the time – even against the boys!

I hope you enjoy my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series and will take the time to leave a review or two for me. Don’t forget about the other books in the series. Destiny’s Kiss (Prequel), Restless Sea Lord – Book 1, and Ruthless Knight – Book 2. Ruthless Knight is only 99 cents but the price will change to $3.99 as soon as Book 3 is released. (KU reads series free.)

If you enjoy audiobooks, you’re in luck. My entire Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series will be in audiobook form within the next few months. Destiny’s Kiss (the prequel to the series) is already in audiobook form. You can expect the audiobook for Restless Sea Lord in the next couple of weeks.

Now, for the winners of my last contest. I ended up giving away a lot of prizes. To see the list of winners that is too long to post here, please look at last month’s post on my website next to the rafflecopter. Thanks to everyone for entering, and watch for another giveaway soon! In case anyone missed my new limited time boxed set, you can try a book from four different series in the Reluctant Brides Collection. This is a limited time offer, and only 99 cents (KU reads free.)

New Release – Ruthless Knight/Medieval Superstitions/Contest Winners

Today is release day for Ruthless Knight, Book 2 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Right now it is only 99 cents (KU reads free) but the price will be changing to $3.99 soon. My hero, Rook, is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. Rook and his brothers have vowed vengeance against the man who ordered their deaths at birth.

Back in medieval times, twins and triplets were considered a curse and not a blessing. Some thought the woman to have  laid with more than one man if she birthed more than one child at a time. Either way, twins and triplets were always considered unlucky. They were thought to have been spawned by the devil and that bad luck would come to those who had ties to twins or triplets. (I am not sure if triplets were actually seen in medieval times, but I like to be unique so you will find them in my story.)

Sometimes the first born was kept and the other twin killed. Sometimes they were all killed. And if one was left-handed, (like my hero) that was said to be devilish as well. If you read the prequel to my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, Destiny’s Kiss, you will find out the events that lead up to the birth of the triplets – their mother having been a twin. If you’ve missed Book 1, Restless Sea Lord, you will want to pick up a copy of that as well. The books all stand alone, but are best read in order if possible so no surprises will be ruined. Watch for Reckless Highlander – Book 3, coming this spring.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don’t celebrate the holiday, then I wish you a happy day!

I am so thankful for every one of my readers, because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be doing a job that I love! Writing is my true passion. My first book was published by a traditional publisher back in 2000. It was called Eden’s Garden, but is no longer in print.

That was followed by my Greek Myth Fantasy Series published by a small press. At the time it was too hard to make a living on my scant royalties and I had to go back into the work world. I didn’t write a word for nearly ten years! Then, almost 4 years ago I lost my job and didn’t know what to do. A writer friend of mine suggested I start publishing my own books, and so I did.

Now, 56 books later I am so thankful to say I make a living doing what I love.

As a special thank you to my readers, I am offering Medieval Magick – my entire Elemental Series for only 99 cents (KU reads free) through the weekend. The price will go back up to $9.99 after that, so be sure to pick up a copy now.

rubyrevisedkindle300sapphirerevisedkindle300amber300strevisedkindleamethystrevisedkindle300Did you know that the traditions of Halloween started back in the medieval times? It originated as a pagan tradition of Samhain and eventually the church got involved and called it All Hallow’s Eve, followed by All Souls’ Day. Children would go door to door daggerpreqdone300collecting soul cakes (trick or treating) and for each one eaten, a poor departed soul would be set free on that night when the veil was pushed aside and the dead could come back to life.

Hollowed out gourds with candles inside (jack-o-lanterns) were used to fend off evil spirits, and on this day men could dress like women, and vice versa (costumes.)  You can find out more about the tradition in my book, Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. I have it as part of a 99 cent boxed set for a limited time in Spellbound Hearts. Almost all of my books are free to read if you are a Kindle Unlimited member. So are the new multi-author boxed sets called Myth, Magic & Moonlight and Love, Honor, & Redemption. These are full-length books by bestselling authors, so pick up your copy for 99 cents today.

Summer Specials/New Preorder

I’m happy to announce that Touch of Gold – Book 4 of my Tangled Tales Series is now available for preorder for the special preorder price of only 99 cents! This is the twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin.

rumpel500

I used to love fairy tales as a child, but I sometimes didn’t like the endings. After all, nobody ever said they were happily ever after stories. So, being a romance writer, I thought it would be fun to take a traditional fairy tale and weave it into a paranormal romance. After all, most fairy tales were paranormal in some way.

In Touch of Gold, my hero, Kin (Rumpelstiltskin) is one of the de Bar siblings that has been cursed by the old witch, Hecuba. Kin is the luckiest of his siblings, always having good things come his way. But when his curse is turning everything he touches to gold, a good thing becomes just the opposite. Especially since it’s dangerous to touch his love interest, Olivia – the miller’s daughter.

This is a fun story and you can preorder it for only 99 cents, but shortly after the release date of August 17th, the price will go up to $2.99, so be sure to get your copy today. Find out more about the Tangled Tales Series, by clicking the series title. Or see the books on amazon; Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood), Just a Kiss (Frog Prince), and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast). And watch for Lady in the Tower, (Rapunzel) coming this winter.

For those of you who like boxed sets, Sea Lords and Ladies is a sampling of some of my books that take place on the high seas. It is a limited time special for only 99 cents, and KU reads free.

sealordsboxfull500

Another set you might be interested in that has not only one of my books in it, but books by bestselling authors, Emma Prince, Ria Cantrell, and Ruth Kaufman, is Medieval Hearts, which is also 99 cents and KU reads free. Limited time only.

Medievalheartsboxset300ianlogo300

I’ve been slowly revamping some of my bookcovers and just have to show you one that I am in love with. Here is my new cover for Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. Ian’s pet hound is featured on the cover. If you’ve read the MacMan MacKeefe Series, you’ll realize my heroes all have a soft spot in their hearts for their pets.  Aidan has his squirrel, and Onyx has his wildcat. And did you know that if you buy the ebooks of the MadMan MacKeefe series, you can get the audiobooks for only $1.99? You will see it on my amazon page. Tim Campbell is my narrator, and you can listen to a sample of his sexy interpretations of my characters on my amazon page as well.

And for those who like bad boy heroes, you will love my 12 Taylor brothers. You’ll have a chance to read Doubting Thomas – Book 1 of the Tarnished Saints Series for free from July 28th – August 1st, so be sure to remember to come back to get your free book to start you off in this romantic, humorous series.
