If you’re a big fan of Medieval/Highlander romance, then you’re going to love this massive giveaway! I was honored to pair with these amazing authors, and I’m really excited to share this with you. Read on below to learn about each book.
I am happy to tell you that Igniting Andrew – Book 11 of my Tarnished Saints Series is now available for purchase. (KU reads free.) Andrew Taylor is a firefighter who has brought fire protection to the little rural town of Sweet Water in the form of their first firehouse. Christina Goldstone is a widow with a baby – that Andrew has delivered. One of them is looking to settle down while the other still has wild oats to sow. Get your copy today. (Paperback coming soon.)
And now available for pre-order is the last book of this series – Taming Thad – Book 12. Thad Taylor is the youngest of the Taylor Twelve, and has his hands full when he makes a promise to a dying man and ends up marrying the man’s daughter – who he didn’t know was blind.
Twenty years ago, the idea of the Tarnished Saints Series was born. I had just started writing romance at the time and thought to myself – wouldn’t it be a great idea to have a series about twelve brothers – sons of a preacher – named after the 12 apostles – but they’re trouble with a capital T. Hence, the tagline was formed: The Taylor Twelve. Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble!
I must say, through the years I started to wonder what I’d been thinking to take on such a HUGE task. Doubting Thomaswas written, but sat in the closet until 3 years ago when I started self-publishing. Luring Levifollowed shortly afterwards, and Judging Judas had a long wait for its release. But now, three years later, all the boys’ stories have been told. (This was a very daunting project and I can’t say I ever plan on writing a series this long again!)
Thank you all for your patience through the years as I finished the series. This series is very close to my heart since it is based on some of my own life experiences. The setting is fictional – but real to me, as it is where I grew up visiting my grandparents on the lake. I see this series as books of memories of instances in my own life – added to new ones to make it a humorous, dramatic, and exciting series. These Taylor boys will make you laugh and make you cry, and before you know it, you’ll start believing that they are real. I feel like I know each and every one of them personally, and I wonder if you can guess which one or two are my favorites.
Thanks once again, and enjoy the troublesome Taylor brothers. Just click on their name and it’ll take you to their book on amazon. The books are available as ebooks or paperbacks: Prequel, Thomas, Levi,Judas,Zeb, Simon, James, Pete,Philip,John,Nate, Andrew and Thad! (These are my book sons, and I feel like a proud mother, having given life to each of them.)
Start your journey with the Taylor men with the Tarnished Saints’ Christmas – the series prequel that I’m offering free through Sat. May 14th.
Please join me at my facebook release party for Andrew on Wed. May 11th, from 5-9 pm Central time. I have a slew of guest authors and there will be games, giveaways and prizes, so you won’t want to miss it.
I also have a new book trailer for my Tarnished Saints and I hope you will enjoy it.
Once again, it is time for the multi-author hop, Authors in Bloom. This spring I have a few new releases, and more on the way. A Viking’s Promise, my first Viking novella that’s been seen as part of the Sirens of the Northern Seas boxed set is now available as a stand alone book.
Brandr gives a dainty blue Forget-me-not to Kadlin as his promise that he’ll return from the raid and marry her. Kadlin is a seer and knows trouble in on the horizon, but never does she expect what the gods have in store for her. Only 99 cents and KU reads free!
Speaking of flowers, did you know that the herbs in your garden can be used for more than just flavoring a savory dish? Cayenne is used to fight viruses as well as reduce pain and swelling. Comfrey is used to heal wounds, and thyme is used to treat a cough. Tumeric relieves arthritis pain and Sage has been found to help those with Alzheimer’s Disease function more smoothly. And my all time favorite that I swear by is oil of Oregano – a natural antibiotic that will knock an illness out of you before it has time to start.
Some of you might be happy to know that the entire Daughters of the Dagger Series is now available in one boxed set for a limited time price of $9.99. (You save $7) And Kindle Unlimited readers can read for free!

Speaking of gardens, I’d like to announce my New Release – Mary, Mary.Raven Birchfield has moved into her deceased eccentric aunt’s house with her mother and younger brother. While planting a flower in her overgrown yard for her high school horticulture class, she hears a voice calling out the name Mary from a nearby graveyard. And when she uncovers an old book of nursery rhymes in the ground as well as a crystal necklace, her life takes a wicked twist. Nursery rhymes are really about past events in history and most of them are very horrid. So when Raven gets pulled into the body of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, she not only enters Mary’s world but can hear Mary’s psychopathic thoughts that are taking control of her own mind and filtering into her everyday life at school. Can Raven fight temptation when her heartthrob Dex Campbell has finally taken notice of her, or will she turn to Mary’s wicked ways instead?
This is the first of my Gnarled Nursery RhymesYoung Adult Series – a book that can be enjoyed by any age. It is also a Golden Palm Contest Finalist!Get a copy of Mary, Mary, for free through April 10th, or for only 99 centsafterwards. And watch for Muffet – Book 2, coming soon!
Gardening Tip: I love to garden and would love to share a tip with you that has worked wonderfully for me. Adding coffee grounds to your compost or around your plants will give them a boost. You can strengthen your roses, add blue color to your hydrangeas, and get rid of garden pests like slugs by putting a ring of coffee grounds around the plant. Try it!
Another of my books that has to do with gardening is The Duke and the Dryad:Book 2 – Earth, from my Elemental Series. Rae-Nyst is an elemental of the earth and can control nature – but not Duke the Destroyer who threatens everything she believes in.
Along with the Authors in Bloom contest, I am having a contest of my own. I am offering a prize of a gardening basket that includes a signed print copy of my small town contemporary romance,Doubting Thomas from my Tarnished Saints Series. Since I mentioned coffee earlier in my gardening tip, it also includes a $10 Starbucks giftcard, as well as a basket full of fun things you can use in your garden. Enter through the rafflecopter below.
Watch my booktrailer videos from The Elemental Series and my Greek Myth Series. After the booktrailers you’ll find the links to the author sites for the Authors in Bloom contest. Enjoy this nice spring weather and get out to your garden to find peace of mind.
