Dragons, Dreams, and the Weather

How many times have you wished you could control the weather? I know there have been many times I wished I had a special power. My Elemental Series is about four women who control fire, wind, earth, and water. From brewing up a storm to making the flowers grow, these women are powerful. But while one element gives them power, another takes it away. (Always a catch to something good, huh?)

From now until 4/25, The Dragon and the DreamWalker – Book 1 (ebook) of my Elemental Series is on kindle countdown for only 99 cents. While Brynn is known as the Lady of Fire, Drake of Dunsbard is a Pendragon, and looking for a little help to slay the infamous dragon that is consuming the virgins of the village. But Drake has more on his mind than just being a hero. Find out more in The Dragon and the DreamWalker. (KU reads entire series free.) Other books in the series are: The Duke and the Dryad (Earth), The Sword and the Sylph (Air) and The Sheik and the Siren (Water.) Or if you’d rather have all the books in one boxed set, you can find that in Medieval Magick.

I hope everyone had a great Easter, or just a great weekend if you don’t celebrate the holiday. For those of you with leftover hard-boiled eggs, here is one of my original recipes for what to do with the leftovers. You can also find the recipe for John’s Deviled Eggs in Loving John – Book 9 of my Tarnished Saints Series. Each book of the series has a recipe in it, made by the hero as well as one from the heroine. (See recipe tab)

I’ve just finished my first draft of Highland Spring, and found myself getting very emotional with the heart-warming ending. If you liked my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, you’ll want to read my new Seasons of Fortitude Series which continues with stories of the boys’ sisters. Highland Spring is on preorder for 99 cents and releases on May 18th. This is a story of a woman stolen at birth and raised as a warrior. What would you do if you discovered your entire life was based on a lie? Like the season of Spring, a woman’s rebirth is evident when she marries a Highlander in a fake alliance. Instead of helping her clan seize the castle, she finds herself falling in love with her husband, and adoring his children as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take a look at my Upcoming books to see what other new books, audiobooks, and multi-author boxed sets are coming this year. I have a heavy schedule, but since I have received many emails from readers who are anxious for more stories,  I am doing my best to have something new each month.

Reckless Highlander Now On Preorder/Contest Winners

It is less than two weeks away from my new book’s release. Reckless Highlander – Book 3 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series is now on preorder! It is only 99 cents but the price will go up to $3.99 shortly after release. Release date is 3/16.

Reed the Reckless is the last of the triplet bastards of the king to be pulled into Edward’s web. Reed feels his brothers have betrayed him by paying fealty to the king – their birth father. Reed wants to continue raiding, but without his brothers things aren’t so easy. A raid gone wrong brings him face to face with Maggie Gordon, his childhood sweetheart. Will Reed follow in his brothers’ footsteps and give up raiding and make an alliance with the king because of a woman? Find out in Reckless Highlander.

This series was a joy to write, and each brother had a personality of their own. I have also interwoven the game of chess into each book which plays an important part in the series, bringing the king and his bastards sons together. I love chess and have played it since childhood. In gradeschool, I was a force to be reckoned with, and would win all the time – even against the boys!

I hope you enjoy my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series and will take the time to leave a review or two for me. Don’t forget about the other books in the series. Destiny’s Kiss (Prequel), Restless Sea Lord – Book 1, and Ruthless Knight – Book 2. Ruthless Knight is only 99 cents but the price will change to $3.99 as soon as Book 3 is released. (KU reads series free.)

If you enjoy audiobooks, you’re in luck. My entire Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series will be in audiobook form within the next few months. Destiny’s Kiss (the prequel to the series) is already in audiobook form. You can expect the audiobook for Restless Sea Lord in the next couple of weeks.

Now, for the winners of my last contest. I ended up giving away a lot of prizes. To see the list of winners that is too long to post here, please look at last month’s post on my website next to the rafflecopter. Thanks to everyone for entering, and watch for another giveaway soon! In case anyone missed my new limited time boxed set, you can try a book from four different series in the Reluctant Brides Collection. This is a limited time offer, and only 99 cents (KU reads free.)

New Release – Ruthless Knight/Medieval Superstitions/Contest Winners

Today is release day for Ruthless Knight, Book 2 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Right now it is only 99 cents (KU reads free) but the price will be changing to $3.99 soon. My hero, Rook, is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. Rook and his brothers have vowed vengeance against the man who ordered their deaths at birth.

Back in medieval times, twins and triplets were considered a curse and not a blessing. Some thought the woman to have  laid with more than one man if she birthed more than one child at a time. Either way, twins and triplets were always considered unlucky. They were thought to have been spawned by the devil and that bad luck would come to those who had ties to twins or triplets. (I am not sure if triplets were actually seen in medieval times, but I like to be unique so you will find them in my story.)

Sometimes the first born was kept and the other twin killed. Sometimes they were all killed. And if one was left-handed, (like my hero) that was said to be devilish as well. If you read the prequel to my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, Destiny’s Kiss, you will find out the events that lead up to the birth of the triplets – their mother having been a twin. If you’ve missed Book 1, Restless Sea Lord, you will want to pick up a copy of that as well. The books all stand alone, but are best read in order if possible so no surprises will be ruined. Watch for Reckless Highlander – Book 3, coming this spring.

rubyrevisedkindle300sapphirerevisedkindle300amber300strevisedkindleamethystrevisedkindle300Did you know that the traditions of Halloween started back in the medieval times? It originated as a pagan tradition of Samhain and eventually the church got involved and called it All Hallow’s Eve, followed by All Souls’ Day. Children would go door to door daggerpreqdone300collecting soul cakes (trick or treating) and for each one eaten, a poor departed soul would be set free on that night when the veil was pushed aside and the dead could come back to life.

Hollowed out gourds with candles inside (jack-o-lanterns) were used to fend off evil spirits, and on this day men could dress like women, and vice versa (costumes.)  You can find out more about the tradition in my book, Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. I have it as part of a 99 cent boxed set for a limited time in Spellbound Hearts. Almost all of my books are free to read if you are a Kindle Unlimited member. So are the new multi-author boxed sets called Myth, Magic & Moonlight and Love, Honor, & Redemption. These are full-length books by bestselling authors, so pick up your copy for 99 cents today.
