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.

I am giving away a signed copy of Forbidden as well as an audiobook of Summer’s Reign, my RONE award nominated book. I would love for you to vote for Summer’s Reign so it will hopefully make it to the finals. Click the photo to vote.

Authors in the hop:

Exciting News!

Now on preorder is Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. The book will be released on July 6th. You can get it for the special price of only $2.99, but don’t wait. The price will go up after the release date.

Do you remember my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series with the bastard triplets of the king? Well, this series is about the eldest daughters of the triplets. Fia is Reed’s daughter and is featured in Book 1.

This series was inspired by my secret garden in my yard, so you will see a secret garden popping up in the books. More on this later, but now some more exciting news!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’ll also remember, the bastard triplets grew up with sisters. (Ok, really cousins, but they thought of them as sisters.) Their sister, Summer did a very heroic thing to help her brother, Reed in Reckless Highlander. Readers wanted to know what happened to her, so I wrote the Seasons of Fortitude Series featuring the sisters, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and the sister they didn’t know existed – Spring.

I received the exciting news that Summer’s Reign has been nominated for the RONE Award from Ind’tale magazine. I am very excited since one of my books made it to the finals last year and I’d like another one to follow.

But in order to make the finals, I need your votes. PLEASE, if you’d take a moment to vote for Summer’s Reign, I would be ever so grateful. To do so, please visit Ind’tale where the nominees for the Historical – Ancient to 16th Century category will be listed starting on Monday. The voting continues through the 22nd. Click HERE to vote for Summer’s Reign. If you are not already subscribed, you will need to do that on the Ind’tale page. It is free! (Look for the blue button that says Subscribe.)

Watch for the release of Forbidden: Claude coming on Wednesday. You can still preorder it for the special price of 99 cents! I will also have one of my books free starting on Wednesday too. So please watch for the upcoming email. In the meantime, I invite everyone to stop by my facebook party on Thursday to celebrate with me. I have guest authors stopping by, and lots of giveaways, prizes, and free books so you won’t want to miss it. I’ll be doing a live video answering your questions. So, please stop by the party page, click the GOING button, and enter the contest I have running by posting your question for me there. I will try to answer all of them during my videos.

Hope to see you there, and please remember to vote for Summer’s Reign starting on Monday the 16th, running through the 22nd.

Thank you!

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. One of three triplet brothers and raised as a pirate, Rowen has vowed vengeance against King Edward – the father who wanted them killed at birth. 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!

 

 

 

 

 

If you prefer some paranormal romance, The Oracle of Delphi, one of my first books that was also seen on the History channel is also free. This is based on the Greek myth of Perseus and Andromeda. (KU reads series free.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the last one is a special book and perfect for Easter. As some of you know, my father who will be 89 this year has written poems throughout the years. As a gift to him, at Christmastime I put his kids’ poems into a picture book called Squeaky the Squirrel. Now, his religious poems are available to read in Reflections (Poems of Faith and Introspection) and it is also FREE for five days. Of course, this has nothing to do with romance, but I wanted to share it with you in case you know someone who might enjoy it.

Did you know that in three weeks, Forbidden: Claude – Book 2 of my Second in Command Series will be released? The date is on April 18th, but you can preorder you copy now for only 99 cents. This is the story about the son of my hero and heroine from The Baron’s Destiny, and I think you are going to love it.

I have had an overwhelming request for Claude’s story from my readers. You wanted to see Claude with his happily-ever-after, and here it is.

 

 

 

 

 

I am working on my new series, Secrets of the Heart which is another medieval strong women series, like Seasons of Fortitude. The first book, Highland Secrets will be on preorder soon and the series should debut this summer. Watch for the next newsletter to find out more.

 

Happy Easter everyone! Please be safe and stay healthy.

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!

New preorder: Forbidden

At the overwhelming request from readers who wanted Claude Montague’s story, now available for preorder is Forbidden: Claude – Book 2 of my Second in Command Series.

This series takes secondary characters from any of my series and delves into their lives, giving them the happily-ever-after they deserve.

Claude Montague was first seen in The Baron’s Destiny – Book 3 of The Barons of the Cinque Ports Series. He was the fifteen year old son of Celestine de Bar and John Montague. If you remember the book, Claude falls in love with another of the baron’s daughters, Lady Rose. Although Rose has befriended Claude – the shy boy from France who first meets his father – she has eyes for her father’s squire, Toft instead.

If you haven’t already read The Baron’s Destiny, you might want to pick up a copy to read first so that no surprises are ruined when you read Forbidden: Claude. But it isn’t required, as the book can be read as a standalone. To read excerpts from the series or to buy any of the Barons of the CInque Ports books, click HERE.

You can preorder your copy of Forbidden: Claude for only 99 cents! The book will release on April 18th. The story of the French knight, Sir Claude Montague, continues eight years later when he returns to England still carrying a torch for Lady Rose who is pregnant and married to Toft. Will Claude learn to let go of the past so he doesn’t miss out on what his future holds in store for him? Rose’s nursemaid, Evelina, points this out to him as she helps to mend his broken heart. Claude finds himself falling in love with Evelina. However, he doesn’t know she is a lady in disguise, running from a betrothal. With her position as a servant, a love between them is one that is forbidden!

If you have already read The Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, you might also remember a secondary character named Brody. Brody was Rowen’s first mate aboard the pirate ship in Restless Sea Lord – Book 1. At the end of the series, Brody is betrayed by the crew. He goes missing, but now it is your chance to find out what happened to Brody in Pirate in the Mist: Brody – Book 1 of the Second in Command Series.

It is available now for only 99 cents and kindle unlimited members read free.

If you would like to read excerpts or buy any of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series click HERE.

Happy spring, everyone. I have a brand new series coming this summer that I will tell you about soon. I think you will be as excited about it as I am. So watch for future emails to find out more.
