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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now, for a quick contest. You can win a $10 amazon gift card or a signed copy of Restless Sea Lord by entering through the rafflecopter below. The contest closes on June 2nd, so be sure to enter right away! Be sure to watch your emails, because there will be one more free Tarnished Saint book, and another one for 99 cents coming up before Father’s Day.

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.

Authors in the hop:

Three free books for the holidays.

Hi everyone! From March 27 – 31st, I am giving away 3 books for FREE!

The first one is about Rowen the Restless and Lady Cordelia.

During one of his raids with his brothers, Lady Cordelia gets in the way and ends up being kidnapped aboard the pirate ship.

 

 

You can get Restless Sea Lord for FREE for a limited time. And if you are a Kindle Unlimited member, you can read the entire Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series free!

Now, his religious poems are available to read in Reflections (Poems of Faith and Introspection) and it is also FREE for five days.

However, the alliance is not real, but only a way to spy so the Gunn Clan knows when to attack.

It will be released on Feb. 8th. And there is still time to preorder Lady in the Tower (Rapunzel) Book 5 for only 99 cents. It releases on Jan. 25th.

These are twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of some of the fairy tales we remember from childhood. (But for adults). The books in the series can be read as stand alones, but if you like to read in order, this is the list: Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood) Book 1, Just a Kiss (Frog Prince) Book 2, Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast) Book 3, Touch of Gold (Rumpelstiltskin) Book 4, Lady in the Tower (Rapunzel) Book 5, A Perfect Fit (Cinderella) Book 6, Heart of Ice (Snow Queen) Book 7.

A Special Christmas Gift For You!

I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! This year sped by so fast, I still can’t believe it is over. 2017 saw the release and/or completion of two new medieval series, Legendary Bastards of the Crown and Seasons of Fortitude. I also released the first book of a new series called Second in Command that takes secondary characters from any of my series and gives them their own story and happily-ever-after ending.

Here is a quick glance of the books or series I released in 2017.

As a special thank you present to all my readers, I am offering FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th, A Kiss to Die For boxed set. These are four full-length books of several of my series that have a murder mystery combined with, of course, romance as the mystery is unveiled. (KU reads all series free.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I want to tell you about another free book that is very different than what I usually post. My father is 88 years old, and when his grandchildren were kids, he used to write poems for them. I wanted to do something special for my father who has always been so loving and giving, never thinking about himself. So those same poems that meant so much to my children long ago now will live on forever in a book by my father called Squeaky the Squirrel (A Children’s Book of Poems.) This is a book for young children, but it can be enjoyed by everyone. The ebook is FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th. (If you prefer the picture book as a paperback, that is available for $9.99.)

What’s coming up on the agenda for me next year? First, you will see the completion of my Tangled Tales Series. These books are twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of fairy tales. Lady in the Tower (Rapunzel) is book 5 and will be released on Jan. 25th. You can preorder it now for the limited-time price of 99 cents by clicking HERE. If you like to read books in order, (although each book in all my series are stand-alones) here is the the entire series at a glance. Click on the photo to find out more or to read excerpts on any of the books.

Watch for the finish of the series, the stories about Cinderella and the Snow Queen, coming this winter. I also have another medieval series or two on the horizon that I think you will love. However, I am superstitious about saying too much too soon, so you’ll have to wait just a little longer to find out more. Expect another book or two in the Second in Command Series as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you enjoy audiobooks, please take a look at my audiobook library. Winter’s Flame – Book 4 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series is now available as an audiobook on amazon, itunes and audible. Listen to a sample on any of those sites. Other new audiobooks are Lady and the Wolf and Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. Watch for audiobooks of Just a Kiss (Frog Prince) and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast) coming in the next few months.

For a little holiday reading, you might want to try a few of my holiday themed and winter-based books such as Tarnished Saints’ Christmas (FREE on all venues), Or my Romantic Winter Wishes Collection that includes My Christmas Soldier, Hired Heart and Loving John99 cents and KU reads free. This is a limited time offer, so get yours before it is gone. 

I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
