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!

I recently had one of my newsletter subscribers ask if I had any contests for those who were not on facebook. Well, I do. I am giving away a $10 gift card and a second prize of your choice of one of my audio or ebooks. To enter, see the rafflecopter below.

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.

Watch for more website contests soon! – Elizabeth Rose

As my Tarnished Saints Series specials continue until Father’s Day, I am offering Saving Simon – Book 5, for only 99 cents and Wrangling James for FREE!

But little does he know she is the one trying to close down his home town’s marina. Pick up your copy through Father’s Day for only 99 cents.

This book was inspired by my husband’s love of sailing. I did research one summer, sailing and walking the docks to see why he liked it so much.

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.

Special Deals for the week!

As promised, I have a special deal on one of the books of my Tarnished Saints Series for the week. I chose one of my favorite books of the series, Judging Judas – Book 3, which is only 99 cents through May 27th.

Twelve brothers growing up together can’t be easy. Judas did some things he’s not proud of, and is trying to make amends with his brother, Levi, for being the one to send him to prison. Returning to his hometown as Sweet Water’s sheriff, Judas has a lot of work to do. The town is after him to make Levi take the goats off of the roof of his diner. But that is the least of Judas’ problems. When a pregnant teenage girl steals his squad car, he meets up with the girl’s mother, Laney McDermott – the girl he left at the altar in his younger days. And the surprises get worse when he realizes he has just arrested his own daughter!

Pick up your copy of Judging Judas for only 99 cents while the deal lasts. And don’t forget that you can read the prequel of the series, Tarnished Saints’ Christmas, for FREE on all venues. After you collect your free copy, you can pick up the audiobook for a discounted price. Watch for your email next week to find out which book of the Tarnished Saints Series I will be giving away for free!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of audiobooks, I have some exciting news for my historical readers. The very first series I ever wrote, Legacy of the Blade is in the process of being re-edited and put into audiobook form. The Legacy of the Blade Prequel is already available in audio, narrated by a new narrator to me, Kevin E Green who is from the UK. You have to hear his wonderful voice. He brings a whole new depth to my stories with the way he reads the books. He will be narrating the rest of the series too, and you can expect to see Lord of the Blade – Book 1, (the first book I ever wrote) in audiobook form this summer! If you’d like to hear a sample of the prequel, you can click on the cover to go to my amazon page to play the sample there, or to pick up your free copy of the ebook.

Oh, and Fia’s younger sister, Morag plays a big role in the series. I have decided to add a fourth book to the series so Morag will have her story told too. Here is a tease for the cover of Seductive Secrets, Book 2.

This series is about the eldest daughters of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. The late Queen Philippa has chosen Fia, Willow and Maira to be part of her secret society of strong women. (That is all the secrets I will divulge at this time. Smile.)

Good news for my Western readers: Coming soon I will tell you about a new historical western series that is slated to release sometime next year. And check back next week to hear about a secret project I’m working on with six other authors. It is something you won’t want to miss! I will also have a special contest for you to enter.

As some of you already know, I now have a granddog. Yep, that’s right. My son got a dog and named her Banshee. At first, she was pretty wild and living up to her name. She is a nine-month-old Blue/Brown Heeler and has more energy than all of us put together. However, she is learning quickly and is much calmer lately, thank goodness.

Since spring is here and gardening season is amongst us, I thought I would share a few gardening tips with you where pets are involved. After all, I have my famous secret garden that I do not want destroyed this summer by You-know-who!

Tips for pet-proofing your garden:

  • To keep dogs from lying down in flower beds, simply drive some short stakes into the ground throughout the bed.
  • Plant pungent herbs such as rosemary and sage or spread a ring of dried mustard or crushed red pepper around plants to keep pets out of a garden bed.
  • Spread a layer of coffee grounds and bitter orange in beds to keep out the cats and dogs. Coffee grounds are also a great fertilizer for your plants.
  • And here’s a gardening tip to help your pets: use cedar chips for pathways and in beds to help protect your pets from fleas.

 

For a chance to win a Kindle Fire or Nook or a $25 gift card, join the Authors in Bloom hop!  All the authors involved in the hop can be found at the end of this post. To qualify you have to visit each authors’ site and enter their contest for proof you were there.

A Fairy Tale Life – New release and free book

It’s been a long time in coming, but my Tangled Tales Series is now complete! You can pick up your copy of Heart of Ice (Snow Queen) Book 7 for only 99 cents and KU reads free.

MacKay de Bar is the last of the siblings to be cursed by the evil witch, Hecuba. MacKay’s anger toward the old hag causes him to break her magic mirror. One of the shards embeds into his chest, causing dark magic to take its toll as his curse is revealed. He is left on a frozen island with Lady Eira Koldottir, a warrior woman with a heart as cold as ice. But with MacKay’s curse, he sees things in opposite. So the meaner she is toward him, the more he likes her. (This leads to a few very humorous scenes.)

I came up with the idea of telling twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of classic fairy tales because I enjoyed the tales as a child but didn’t like all the horrible endings. This was my way to rewrite them the way I thought they should be.

I tried to stay true to the plot of the fairy tales but add twists and turns and situations you wouldn’t expect. The hard part was narrowing it down to only seven tales since I liked so many of them. If you enjoy fairy tale romance and would like a chance to win the entire series in print, signed by me, now is your chance. To enter, go to my Heart of Ice Facebook Party Page and look for the post with the same graphic as posted here. All you need to do is leave a comment, it’s easy. I will be choosing a winner at the end of my facebook party. The party is on Thursday the 15th. I will start it off with a live video at 3 pm central time. During the day I will be having flash giveaways and choosing the winners LIVE, so you’ll want to keep your eye on the page.

At 4 pm, my guest author from the UK, Mary Lancaster will be stopping by. And during the evening, you will find guest appearances and more giveaways from authors Victoria Zak, Katherine Bone, Cathey MacRae, Alexa Aston and Mia Pride. Be sure to check out the times, and click the GOING button if you think you will stop by.

In celebration of my new release, I am offering Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood) Book 1 of the Tangled Tales Series FREE from March 13th – 17th.

And in celebration of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, you can get a copy of The Duke and the Dryad on kindle countdown for only 99 cents!

If you like contests, please enter the St. Patrick’s Day facebook Hop where you will have a chance to win one or more of 70 gift cards. Click on the photo to find out more. Hope to see you at my party!
