Seductive Secrets is Here!

Seductive Secrets, Book 2 of my Secrets of the Heart Series is finally here! You can pick up your copy for only 99 cents for a limited time.

When I started this series, I knew I wanted to write about a second generation from some of my past characters. I took a poll with my readers and hands down the winning vote was for me to write about the children of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown.

Since the bastard triplets of the king were such strong and memorable characters, I of course had to make their daughters strong and feisty as well. Secrets of the Heart features Reed’s daughter, Fia in Highland Secrets, Rook’s daughter, Willow in Seductive Secrets, and Rowen’s daughter, Maira in Rebellious Secrets. (Rebellious Secrets is now on preorder for 99 cents, releasing on Nov. 28th.) The girls have been chosen by the queen to be part of a secret society of strong women. Reed has a second daughter, Morag who shows up in the series as a supporting character. I never meant for her to have her own story, but she is such a fun character that I couldn’t resist. Morag’s story will be Forgotten Secrets, Book 4. Look for it this winter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In case you missed Rook’s story, I have put Ruthless Knight on kindle countdown for 99 cents through Oct. 2nd. This will give you insight of Willow’s father. (KU can read both series plus the Seasons of Fortitude Series that is about the triplets’ sisters, for free.)

The books are also available in print and in audiobook format.

As I’m sure most of you know, I have a granddog who keeps me pretty busy. She is a sweet thing as well as very active, being a herding dog. I started to think about my books and how many of them have dogs in them. So, I decided to put together the boxed set, Loyal Hearts, with some of my favorites stories that all have heroes with dogs. Some have more than one dog, such as Benedict from Autumn’s Touch with 12 dogs, and John from Loving John who is a musher and has a team of sled dogs. Dog lovers will love this set! It is 99 cents and KU reads free but only for a limited time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In my next blog I will tell you a little bit behind the scenes on my next release, Muffet that is on preorder now for 99 cents and will be released on Oct. 4th. I am having a facebook party to celebrate these two releases and would love you to join in on the fun. I even have a pre-party contest going on where you can win a beautiful heart bracelet. So hop on by and check it out now. Hit the GOING button if you think you might come to the party.

Till then,

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.

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.

Cover Reveal, Contest & Free Book!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
