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!

Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble! The book shows you the men as children and the events that earned them the title of Tarnished Saints. The short story is followed by excerpts from each of the brothers’ books.

I am so excited to also announce that the audiobook of Tarnished Saints Christmas is available now as well. Pick up the free ebook first to get the audiobook for a discount. Listen to a snippet of the audio on my amazon page for this book.

Winter’s Flame is here! Enter My Contest to WIN prizes!

The release day of Winter’s Flame – Book 4 in my Seasons of Fortitude Series is here! You can still pick up your copy for only 99 cents, but the price will be changing soon, so don’t wait. (Entire series can be read for FREE if you are a Kindle Unlimited member.) Also available in paperback and coming to audio soon. See more about the Seasons of Fortitude Series and read excerpts on my website.

Lady Winter is a noblewoman skilled in the art of forging a sword. She helps out the old blacksmith and is mistaken by Lord Martin de Grey as the blacksmith’s daughter. Collecting on a debt, Martin wants his sword made of Damascus steel that he’s commissioned the blacksmith to make. When he doesn’t have it, Martin takes him as well as WInter along with him back to his castle on the border, not knowing Winter’s true identity. She doesn’t tell him, because it would mean trouble for the blacksmith. She also is the one who will forge the sword in secret since the blacksmith is going blind.

When secrets are revealed, tempers will flare as well as the passion Winter and Martin have shared that is hotter than the fires of the forge.

I am also having a contest to celebrate Winter’s Flame – my 65th book. (See the end of the post to enter through the rafflecopter.)

Summer Specials/New Preorder

I’m happy to announce that Touch of Gold – Book 4 of my Tangled Tales Series is now available for preorder for the special preorder price of only 99 cents! This is the twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin.

rumpel500

I used to love fairy tales as a child, but I sometimes didn’t like the endings. After all, nobody ever said they were happily ever after stories. So, being a romance writer, I thought it would be fun to take a traditional fairy tale and weave it into a paranormal romance. After all, most fairy tales were paranormal in some way.

In Touch of Gold, my hero, Kin (Rumpelstiltskin) is one of the de Bar siblings that has been cursed by the old witch, Hecuba. Kin is the luckiest of his siblings, always having good things come his way. But when his curse is turning everything he touches to gold, a good thing becomes just the opposite. Especially since it’s dangerous to touch his love interest, Olivia – the miller’s daughter.

This is a fun story and you can preorder it for only 99 cents, but shortly after the release date of August 17th, the price will go up to $2.99, so be sure to get your copy today. Find out more about the Tangled Tales Series, by clicking the series title. Or see the books on amazon; Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood), Just a Kiss (Frog Prince), and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast). And watch for Lady in the Tower, (Rapunzel) coming this winter.

For those of you who like boxed sets, Sea Lords and Ladies is a sampling of some of my books that take place on the high seas. It is a limited time special for only 99 cents, and KU reads free.

sealordsboxfull500

Another set you might be interested in that has not only one of my books in it, but books by bestselling authors, Emma Prince, Ria Cantrell, and Ruth Kaufman, is Medieval Hearts, which is also 99 cents and KU reads free. Limited time only.

Medievalheartsboxset300ianlogo300

I’ve been slowly revamping some of my bookcovers and just have to show you one that I am in love with. Here is my new cover for Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. Ian’s pet hound is featured on the cover. If you’ve read the MacMan MacKeefe Series, you’ll realize my heroes all have a soft spot in their hearts for their pets.  Aidan has his squirrel, and Onyx has his wildcat. And did you know that if you buy the ebooks of the MadMan MacKeefe series, you can get the audiobooks for only $1.99? You will see it on my amazon page. Tim Campbell is my narrator, and you can listen to a sample of his sexy interpretations of my characters on my amazon page as well.

And for those who like bad boy heroes, you will love my 12 Taylor brothers. You’ll have a chance to read Doubting Thomas – Book 1 of the Tarnished Saints Series for free from July 28th – August 1st, so be sure to remember to come back to get your free book to start you off in this romantic, humorous series.
