Halloween is right around the corner now that it is fall. It’s one of my favorite holidays. So, to celebrate,I have some pre-Halloween specials for you. I am giving away my book, Familiar for FREE thru the 12th. Slade Spencer is a warlock in denial, and his ex-girlfriend, Susie Vasilly has been cursed. Little does he know that by day she is a woman but by night she turns into Slade’s evil uncle’s cat – his Familiar.
This is Book 1 of my Dark Encounters Series. Be sure to pick up Book 2, The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill (vampire) and Book 3 Curse of the Condor as well. You can watch a video of me in the graveyard talking about my inspiration for writing Caretaker that was a circus train wreck back from 1918. Click HERE to view it on my facebook page.
I also wanted to remind you I have a few books releasing this month and they are both on preorder. Blue is Book 3 of my Once Upon a Rhyme Serieswhere nursery rhymes get a little evil. It is written as a young adult book but can be enjoyed by all ages, so you don’t want to miss it. (This Series was inspired by the hidden meanings behind our favorite nursery rhymes.) Preorder your copy of Blue for only $2.99. It’ll be released on Oct. 16th. And be sure to read the first two books in the series, Mary, Mary and Muffet.
The second preorder is Keeper of the Flame: Orrick. This is Book 5 of my Second in Command Series where secondary characters from some of my series get their own stories. This story was one I loved writing and wanted to do for quite some time. It’s about Orrick, the old sorcerer from my Legacy of the Blade Series. Only, he’s not really an old man. He chose to stay in that shapeshifting form because he is immortal. When he watched his wife grow old and die many years earlier while he lived forever, he decided he never wanted to fall in love again. That is, until he meets Lady Hope searching for the Eternal Flame. He shapeshifts back into his young, handsome self to find out her intent, but never expects to fall for her. Preorder today for $2.99. It releases on Oct. 28th.

Hope to see you all at my facebook party on the 5th. I enjoy getting to know my readers and feel this brings us closer together.
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 Knighton 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 Seriesthat 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.
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 Secretswhich 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.
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.
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!

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.
