Many years ago, my husband and I took a trip to Peru. I was so inspired by the culture, the people, and of course Machu Picchu – the lost city of the Incas, that I wanted to weave it into one of my novels.
Eva Manterro is half-American, half-Peruvian. Her father makes a bet with Pete Taylor, a minister from Sweet Water Michigan, and before she knows it, Pete is her guardian in the States. Little do either of them know at the time that they are going to fall madly in love.
Pick up your FREE copy of Praising Pete now through the 28th. Pete is one of the 12 Taylor boys. Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble.

Simon is one of my favorite Taylor brothers, because he is my sailor. When I wrote the book, I spent the summer on the docks, learning to sail. In this book, Simon and Piper also go to an orchard to pick peaches – something I used to do growing up. Of course, Piper is a city girl and not used to what Simon has in store for her.

With Easter as well as Mother’s Day approaching quickly, how do you intend to spend your holidays? I love throwing something on the grill and enjoy listening to the sounds of spring, such as the birds singing. I can’t wait to see what Mother Nature has drummed up with the wildflowers in my yard. One of my favorite things to grill is corn on the cob. Did you know I have original recipes in my Tarnished Saints’ Series? Here is the recipe for Angel’s Picnic Corn from the book, Doubting Thomas. Angel works for Child Services and while on vacation at Thunder Lake with her young daughter, she unofficially investigates a man named Thomas Taylor. Thomas is the single father of six boys and has been accused by the town of murdering his wife. I love this book because it shows the life of a falsely accused single parent struggling to do whatever he can to keep his children from being taken away. This first book of the series is only 99 cents.(KU reads free.)
As a tribute to mothers everywhere, I put together a limited time set called Medieval Matriarchs. For only 99 cents you can get six books that all have mothers as the heroines. (KU reads free.) It’s not always easy being a mother, and these stories deal with some of the trials and hardships as well as the joys of having a baby or raising a child. And of course, there is romance involved with the heroes who end up being the fathers to the children. They also make some wonderful husbands to my independent heroines.
For those of you who enjoy a historical western romance, I’ve also got a limited time offer of Wanted: Cowboys of the Old Westfor only 99 cents thru 4/18. These stories are sweet novellas that all take place in the old west. I have to admit my favorite is The Drifter. I loved doing the research on stagecoach swing stations and found that life very interesting. (KU reads free.)
I’ve been busy working on Highland Spring – Book 1of my Seasons of Fortitude Series. This is the series that follows theLegendary Bastards of the Crown Series and is about the bastard triplets’ sisters. Spring has been stolen as a baby and raised as a warrior. But when she marries Shaw Gordon in a fake alliance in order to help her father and her clan overtake Shaw’s castle, things don’t go as planned. She’s found herself falling in love with the enemy, and becoming attached to his three children as well. Can love soften the heart of a woman who has known nothing but raiding and killing in her life? And will Shaw be the man who breaks down the walls that imprison her hidden emotions within her? My heroine has mastered the bow and arrows, and I am in the process of researching how bow and arrows were made back in the medieval times. It is fascinating to see what can be constructed from just trees in the forest!
This book is now on preorder for the special price of only 99 cents. Release date is May 18th!
Finally the last book of theLegendary Bastards of the Crown Serieswill be released on Thursday, March 16th. (You can preorder it now.) Will Reed pay fealty to his father, King Edward, like his brothers before him? And will a Scottish lassie named Maggie make him question his ways?
For those of you who enjoy contemporary romance, my boxed set, Small Town Sinners and Saints – the first four books of the Tarnished Saints Series is only 99 cents for the next week. This is a great way for you to be introduced to the Taylor Twelve! (The whole series is also on KU.)
If you’d like to try a sampling of some of my books, I’d like to suggest two boxed sets. The Sea Lords and Ladiesand Sealed with a Kissboxed sets will be disappearing in the next few weeks, so don’t wait. They are both only 99 cents and KU reads free.
I’ve been working on updating my website. I now have all my booktrailers on one page.Click here.

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.
