Halloween Treats – No Tricks!

This Halloween, I have chosen six of my books that either take place at Halloween or have some spooky things happening in them, and priced them at 99 cents for you.

Halloween first originated many years ago where it started as a pagan Celtic celebration called Samhain. There were no pumpkins in medieval England, but they carved gourds and lit them with candles to ward away the evil spirits. Children didn’t go trick-or-treating for candy, but they begged at doorsteps for soul cakes instead. Each cake eaten supposedly released a poor spirit from purgatory. The soul cakes had a cross on top and were filled with currants and spices. Click HERE to see a photo and get the recipe to make these ancient soul cakes.

The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill: This is a vampire romance inspired by a real life circus train wreck and the cemetery where the performers were laid to rest. I’ve visited this cemetery personally. Basil Wensilton III guards over a vial of potion, living in the cemetery keeping the other vampires at bay when snoopy reporter Cassie Briggs, comes looking for her missing sister.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Familiar:   Slade Spencer is a warlock in denial who comes back to his hometown to find that his past lover, Susie Vasilly is now a cursed woman who shapeshifts into his evil uncle’s cat – or Familiar each night. The villain’s three dozen cats were inspired by an old woman who once lived in my neighborhood and had tons of cats in her house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ian: (MadMan MacKeefe Series) Ian MacKeefe sees the face of a man he’s killed in the bonfire on All Hallow’s Eve. Little does he know that his best friend’s sister, Kyla has eyes for him but her future lies in an evil man’s hands instead unless Ian can change it. In this story you will find out how a lot of our Halloween traditions first got started.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lady and the Wolf: (Tangled Tales Series) Hugh de Bar has been cursed by an evil witch and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. One night he meets up with Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton and her crossbow in the forest and finds out she is the granddaughter of the man who made him this way. This was inspired by the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pandora Curse: (Greek Myth Series) Vara the Conqueror is a ruthless warrior woman who has to lose her vices unknowingly, and Hera’s soothsayer son, Nicolai is the one to do it. Inspired by the Greek Myth of Pandora and the shows Xena and Hercules from many years ago. (You will love Baruch the shapeshifting minion that brings humor to this read.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Muffet: (Once Upon a Rhyme Series) Candy Willowsby is taken over by the ghost of Little Miss Muffet who is out for revenge. Inspired by the nursery rhyme, Little Miss Muffet as well as an old scary house in my neighborhood.

Finally Home is here!

Hi everyone!

I am excited to tell you that the first book in my Sweet Nothings Series, Finally Home, has arrived. This will be a contemporary series with novellas that are sweet and clean and full of romantic emotions. It won’t take you behind the closed bedroom door, but none of the romance is compromised and these books will be filled with kisses, memories, light touches, gentle caresses, and a whole lot of attraction and romance. So why not give it a try?

Finally Home is a story I started years ago and found recently. I decided I really liked it and wanted to finish it. This is the story of a second chance romance between Allie Martinez and Logan MacQuaid. It is also a secret baby romance since I always love those. Of course, they all have happy endings.

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to tell you that I have finally gotten back to my young adult series that is based on dark, twisted nursery rhymes. It is my Once Upon a Rhyme Series. Mary, Mary (Quite Contrary) is book 1 and is now available with a brand new cover. On preorder is Book 2, Muffet (Little Miss Muffet) and Blue Book 3, (Little Boy Blue) is coming soon.

These are spooky tales set in contemporary time but with a paranormal twist. The books can be read and loved by all ages. So follow Raven Birchfield and her friends as they fight off evil characters of ancient nursery rhymes who start to invade their world. Muffet is on preorder now for only 99 cents and will be released on October 4th, just in time for Halloween.

If you like paranormal stories, you can enter the All Things Magical giveaway and have a chance to win a kindle ereader, giftcards and even ebooks. Be sure to follow me on Bookbub for an extra entry. Just click the photo to enter – and be sure to check out the bookfair while you are there.

If you haven’t already preorder Seductive Secrets, you’ll want to pick it up for only 99 cents while the price lasts. Exciting news: I have my narrator working on the audiobook right now, so it should be available around the same time as the ebook which releases on Sept. 26th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are a contemporary reader, I’ve decided to put the Small Town Sinners and Saints boxed set on kindle countdown. This includes the first FOUR full-length books of my 12 book Tarnished Saints Series. If you move quickly, you can pick it up for only 99 cents, but the price will go up every few days.

Summer Reading Specials!

Finally, the rain has stopped and now we’re under a heat advisory for the weekend. How is it by you? I hope you are enjoying your summer. I just wanted to send a quick note letting you know about 2 new specials I am running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first is a boxed set called Stolen Brides. I’ve chosen 5 books from some of my series that have stolen brides in them. This set has a little of everything from a Viking to medieval/Scottish warriors, a lady pirate, Rapunzel trapped in a tower, and even a bonus book including a black jack dealer who wakes up married to the wrong twin!

Get your copy of Stolen Hearts for only 99 cents to read Highland Spring, A Viking’s Promise, Lady in the Mist, Lady in the Tower and Seducing Zeb. If you are a kindle unlimited member you read all the series the books are from for free!

Now, you can read one book right after another without having to stop. Escape into the magical medieval world of the de Bar siblings on their quests to break their curses – while they happen to find love along the way. These books bought separately, would cost almost $20. But for a limited time you can pick up the entire series for only $9.99. And of course, KU reads free!

It is only a week away from the release of Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. You can still preorder it for the discounted price of $2.99 but just a warning, the price will be going up shortly after the release date of July 6th.

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.

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!
