A Gift of Thanks!

With Thanksgiving arriving in the US, it makes me think of everything I am truly thankful for. My loved ones, our health, a roof over my head and food on the table. Not to mention friends, and fans like all of you!

To show how thankful I am to have each and every one of you in my life, I have decided to do a few special things. I’ve put together my ENTIRE Greek Myth Series into one boxed set and priced it at only 99c thru Black Friday for a fun, affordable read. (KU reads free.)

I’ve also decided to release the print book of Mardon early for those of you who like a physical book to hold. This way you can order it and get it well before Christmas. Remember, the ebook of Mardon will release on Dec. 3rd, and there is still time to preorder it at the special price of only $2.99.

Aaron is the last book in my Pirate Lord Series and will release sometime in Feb. or March of next year. For now, here is a sneak peek at the cover.

Do you like audiobooks, or would you like to try one for free if you’ve never had the chance to do so? As another thank you, I’ve decided to give away the ENTIRE Holiday Knights Series is audio to several winners. Just enter through the rafflecopter below.

Stay safe and healthy, and remember to be thankful for those people and things in your life that are sometimes taken for granted.

A Call of the Wild

This weekend starts the Iditarod – the annual trail sled dog racing competition in Alaska that lasts up to a week or more. With that and also the Call of the Wild movie being released, I thought I’d jump into the ring and offer my sled dog racing book, Loving John for FREE from March 7th – 11th.
John Taylor’s dream is to run the Iditarod with his team of sled dogs. But when an accident occurs and he injures his leg, he is forced to return to his hometown of Sweetwater instead. There he meets the beautiful divorced doctor, Addey and her troublesome son who need him in their lives as much as John needs his dogs. But can a man with the call of the wild in his heart put down roots when all he wants to do is run?

Loving John is Book 9 in my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series, but these are all stand alone books and can be read in any order. If you’d like to learn more about the Iditarod, here are a few links that I hope you’ll enjoy: Click HERE and HERE.

Did you know John is one of the 12 sons of a preacher? But these Taylor men are far from saints and nothing but trouble!

From March 7th – 13th you can also pick up Teaching Philip and Playing Nate for only 99c each. (US & UK) And don’t forget Book 1 – Doubting Thomas is always 99c, and the series prequel – Tarnished Saints’ Christmas is FREE! Kindle Unlimited members can read the entire 12 book series for free as well.

I’m excited to tell you that May Queen: May Day – Book 3 of my Holiday Knights Series is now available as an audiobook. My UK narrator, Kevin E. Green does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. This book centers around the ancient traditions of May Day, and you’ll learn how it all got started. In my Holiday Knights series, each book features the origins of a holiday, most of them starting back in medieval times or even earlier. Watch for more Holiday Knights coming soon. You can purchase the audiobook of May Queen or listen to a sample HERE. I am also giving away a copy of the audiobook along with a $10 amazon gift card. At the end of this post (on my website) you can enter through the rafflecopter.

If you’re new to my books, or if you just like a deal, I put together a series starter collection of first books of some of my series. It’s called Medieval Knights and Warriors and has a collection of six full-length books in a boxed set for the low price of $5.99. This is Volume 2 of my series starter collection. If you like boxed sets, be sure to pick up Crowns, Swords and Shields – Vol 1 as well. Kindle Unlimited members can read both for free.

Valentine’s Day contest and more!

Happy February to everyone! This is the month of Valentine’s Day which is my all-time favorite holiday ever. Not surprising, I guess, being a romance author. I have some special contests going on for Valentine’s Day, and you’ll have a chance to win signed books, ebooks, audiobooks and even an amazon gift card. Some of my sexy heroes will also be sending you their Valentines and having their personal contests via facebook.

To have a chance to win a $20 amazon gift card, an autographed paperback, as well as an audiobook of Matchmade Hearts, and a personalized Valentine’s Day card from me, be sure to enter my Valentine’s Day contest on my website. (Look for the rafflecopter at the end of the website post to enter.)

If you’re on facebook, I will be having some special Valentine’s Day giveaways there as well. Some of my heroes want to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day and they’ll be giving away copies of the books that feature them, in paperback, ebook and audiobook formats. Each day from now through Valentine’s Day, a different hero will post his Valentine’s Day wish to you along with the contest. Each contest will remain open through Valentine’s Day, so be sure to scroll through to find all the Valentine’s Day cards on my facebook page! Good luck. Here is a sneak peek at the first Valentine’s Day card that happens to be from my hero James Taylor from my Bad Boys of Sweetwater, Tarnished Saints Series. You’ll have the chance to win a signed paperback of Wrangling James!

I’ve been super busy lately writing the last book of my Highland Chronicles Series, Highland Spy, which will feature my favorite hero of the series, Caleb MacKeefe and his pesky little pine marten. And we’ll finally see him catch the eye of Bridget, the chronicler’s daughter. Watch for it to be on preorder soon. Meanwhile, Highland Steel, Book 3 is getting ready to release on the 19th – only two weeks away. Logan MacKeefe never expects to find an Englishwoman approach him as he’s bathing in the lake. But Lady Rhoswen needs his help. She needs an escort to the Highlands. Too bad where she wants to go is to his enemy’s territory! You won’t want to miss this one. So far it is my favorite book of the series. If you haven’t yet preordered your copy, do so now while the price is still $2.99. The price will go up shortly after release. Check out the whole series of my rugged Highlanders, all sons of the MacKeefes -some of my most memorable Highland heroes from past books.

 

Well, since it’s winter, I thought it only right to discount Winter’s Flame, Book 4 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series. My heroine, Lady Winter is skilled at creating weapons in the forge. Things heat up when border lord Sir Martin de Grey commissions a sword to be made, thinking she is naught but the blacksmith’s daughter. From Feb. 6th thru the 12th you can pick up a copy of Winter’s Flame on Kindle Countdown (US and UK only) for 99c. Afterwards, be sure to get the audiobook at the discounted price of $7.49 as well. (Kindle Unlimited members read the entire series free!) This book was so much fun to write and I learned so much about what goes into making a sword and how it was done in medieval times. I hope you enjoy it!

For those of you who might be new to my books, or those who haven’t read them all yet, I’ve put together a series starter collection that features some of my first books of different series. Crowns, Swords and Shields has 3 prequel novellas and 4 full-length books from four different series to introduce you to some of my works. It’s only $5.99 or free to read in Kindle Unlimited. If you were to buy these books separately, it would cost $18.93, so this is a savings of almost thirteen dollars!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So for now, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. Be sure to enter my contest thru the Rafflecopter below, and to check back each day on my facebook page to see which of my sexy heroes are sending you Valentines and offering you the chance to win their books.

Love,
Elizabeth Rose

A Little Holiday Spirit!

Hi everyone!

As Christmas gets closer, I’m sure we all have more and more to do. I finally finished putting up the decorations and now I’m preparing for the release of Highland Spirit – Book 2 of The Highland Chronicles Series that is releasing on Dec. 29th.

Ethan MacKeefe has been jilted at the altar by Alana Chisholm. Now, years later when he follows his dog into a supposedly haunted castle, he sees Alana in the tower window. Can a ghost from his past be a second chance at love?

Read an excerpt, getting a sneak peek of the book HERE. And watch before the end of the month for a sneak peek at the cover of Highland Spy – Book 3. This will be Caleb MacKeefe’s story. And you’ll see more of that little pine marten that travels with him that his friends refer to as a weasel.

 

I’ve put together a special boxed set for you, only available for a short time through the holidays. Holiday Romance is a collection of 6 of my Christmas or winter-based books. Three are historical and three are contemporary, so there is a little something for everyone. Pick up the Holiday Romance Boxed Set now for only $1.99. If you belong to Kindle Unlimited, you can read the entire thing for free.

And don’t forget that you can start reading the Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series for FREE in Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. (Also available in print and audiobook forms.)

How would you like to win a $500 gift card? Here’s your big chance. The Kindle Book Review is giving one away. Click on the graphic to enter the contest that ends on Dec. 23rd.
