First of all, I am excited to tell you about Behind the Chain Mail. (Click title to buy for 99 cents.) I have always been fascinated by “behind the scenes” information of movies and decided I wanted to show the “behind the scenes” of the making of some of my series as well.
In this book you will find out about my inspirations, as well as learn some in-depth facts on my characters and find out more about the stories of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. I not only share fun medieval facts, but have provided colorful graphics, a map of the castles and areas included in each story, and a family tree. You will also find excerpts from each book, so if you haven’t read the series yet, you can see what is to come. The book is also available in print (but with black and white graphics to keep down your cost.) And as an extra bonus book within Behind the Chain Mail, you will find a brand new short story called The Gift featuring the legendary bastard triplets that is only found here. Pick up your copy today!
Another announcement is that Scottish Rose: Coirawhich was first seen as part of the Rogues to Lovers multi-author set, is now available as a standalone ebook and paperback. It is now listed as Book 3 in my Second in Command Series that features secondary characters from some of my series. Click on the title to buy.
Now for the FREE books. The Legacy of the Blade Prequel is FREE from Jan. 8 to the 12th. So be sure to click on the title to pick up a copy to start reading my oldest series, Legacy of the Blade to find out about Lord Corbett Blake and his long lost siblings. (All books available as ebook, paperbacks, and in audio.)
The second book I am offering for free is Reckless Highlander. (Click on the title to collect your free ebook.) Since Behind the Chain Mail talks about the legendary bastard triplets of the king, I have decided to give you Reed’s book for free. I love this series and in this book you will see a LIVE chess game featuring people at the end. That is something I have never seen in a romance novel before. See the whole Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series to find out more.
After you pick up your free ebook of Reckless Highlander, treat yourself to the audiobook as well. If you already have the ebook, you can get the audiobook on amazon for only $7.49! (Regular price $19.95.) Listen to a snippet of the book narrated by Brian J. Gill on my amazon page.
If you are an audiobook lover, here are a few of my newest audiobooks: Forbidden: Claude, and Rebellious Secrets! Click on the titles to buy from amazon, or to listen to an excerpt. Forbidden Secrets is done by my new UK narrator, Kevin E. Green. I love his voice and am sure you will too!

What’s coming up in the next few months? Hopefully a new Holiday Knights book for Valentine’s Day (if I can get it written in time) and also don’t forget about the release of Forgotten Secrets, the last book of my Secrets of the Heart Series. Morag is a gossip and she falls in love with an assassin, so this will put her to the test! Just click on the title to preorder now for $2.99. The release date is scheduled for February 20th. My narrator is working on the audiobook so it will hopefully be released the same time as the ebook and paperback. I am very excited about this book because I love Morag’s character. It was a joy writing about the daughters of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown.
As the snow falls here in the Chicago area and the temperature continues to get colder and colder, I figured I would give away a free book to help everyone warm up.
Winter’s Flame is FREE from Dec. 5th to the 9th. Lady Winter is skilled in the art of forging blades and Sir Martin de Grey is in need of blade made from Damascus steel. Mistaking Winter as the daughter of the blacksmith instead of a noblewoman, he takes her to his castle to finish a job that was part of a former deal.
The romance warms up as sparks fly between them, and the passionate kisses that follow later becomes hotter than the fires of the forge.
Pick up your free copy by clicking the amazon link. And afterwards, be sure to get your copy of the audiobook on amazon for a discounted price as well.
Winter’s Flame is the last book in my Seasons of Fortitude Series. However, they can be read in any order. If you haven’t read Highland Spring, Book 1, you can pick it up on sale for only 99 cents through the 11th. Just click the following link.

This is Book 1 in my new Holiday Knights Series. In this book you will experience the traditions and customs of the medieval times. Find out how they celebrated Christmas and what crazy things they did for twelve days straight. I had a fun time writing this book and especially including all the types of foods they ate back then.
Did you know they didn’t have potatoes or pumpkins in the middle ages? But they did have mince pie and roasted goose. My hero, Sir Adam de Ware has the unusual talent of being able to whip up a delicious meal. And he uses this skill as his secret weapon to seduce Lady Eva Cavendish to get information since he is a spy for the king.
You will also find out how a piggy bank originated as well as revisit the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas as you read each chapter of the book. I am very excited about this series. With each book I will delve into the way the lords and ladies of the castle celebrated holidays way back when.

Over twenty years ago I started writing my first romance novel. That was Lord of the Blade – back then called Devon’s Desire. It was almost bought by Harlequin, but the editor left on maternity leave and with her went my chance to be published by this big, prestigious publishing house.
Nevertheless, when I started publishing my own books after losing my job five years ago, I started with Lord of the Blade. It was an experiment and I thought no one would buy a lone book from a virtually unknown author. But, to my surprise, it sold quite well and to date is one of my top three sellers!
I didn’t have social media or a mailing list or even a website for the first year of publishing on my own. Still, the readers somehow found me and bought my books. Thank you, all of you for all your support! I hadn’t written a word in ten years, and the five books I had traditionally published were virtually dead by now since it had been so long. So this was a scary, but exciting new career change for me.
Today, I am proud to say I am working on my 75th book and loving being my own boss. I control what I write and I make my own covers. Yes, this is a dream job for me, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Lord of the Blade has recently gone through professional editing, as well as gotten a new cover. And it is now available in audiobook form, narrated by the multi-talented UK narrator, Kevin E. Green. (Click on the audiobook photo to purchase or to listen to an excerpt of the narration on amazon. The audiobook is also available on itunes and audible.) The narration brings the story and the wonderful characters to life. Above you’ll see a movie poster for the book. Hopefully, someday that dream will come true. I would love to see my books made into movies.
You will notice a few other new covers in the series as well. Watch for the whole series to be in audiobook form, hopefully by the end of the year! The books are all available as paperbacks on amazon or Barnes and Noble or ebooks from amazon only. If you are a kindle unlimited member, you can read the entire series for free.
Lord of the Blade is a story about a man (Corbett Blake) who is out to find redemption since his father married the vicar’s daughter and has sullied the Blake family name. (See the prequelfor more on this.) Lord Corbett’s father had been stripped of his title before he died. But now Corbett has worked hard to regain the castle and lands that were lost. All he needs to satisfy the king and bring honor back to the family name is a noble wife. Devon is a girl who has been hidden away and raised at the monastery by the old midwife, Heartha, brought there by an old sorcerer right after she was born. Corbett finds her and brings her to his castle as his servant, and against all rules, he and Devon start to fall in love. But not everything is as it seems. And sometimes our dreams can come true if only we believe. Watch Lord Corbett’s raven closely, because there are some secrets amiss and you won’t want to overlook a clue.
So pick up your free copy of Lord of the Blade before the offer expires. And if you’d like to see the old covers, I haven’t had the chance to change them in the booktrailer yet. It is still a great trailer, so check it out as well as some of my other booktrailers by clicking HERE.
First, let me tell you about my brand new preorder, Finally Home for only 99 cents! This is a book I found in my archives that I had started years ago. It’s a contemporary, secret baby, and second chance at romance between Logan MacQuaid and Allie Martinez. Packed with emotion, a child and even a dog, this novella is a fun, fast, heart warming read.
Medieval lovers, now through July 30th, you can pick up a copy of the Daughters of the Dagger Prequel for free! And don’t forget to pick up the audiobook afterwards!
