60th Book Celebration and Giveaway Party!

Hi everyone! This is just a quick note to tell you my exciting news!

Highland Spring will be released in a little over 2 weeks, and it will be my 60th book! It has been a lot of hard work but a fun and exciting journey getting here. I decided I wanted all of you to help me celebrate, so I’ve planned a facebook party extravaganza that will last from May 13th – May 18th. Click HERE to see the full 6 day agenda.

This is the party of all parties, and will include over two dozen guest authors of multiple genres. Some of the authors will be coming to you LIVE, and you’ll be able to interact and ask them questions. Others will be posting games and giveaways the traditional way. Either way, they all have some surprises in store for you. So be sure to stop by to visit with USA Today and Bestselling authors such as Kathryn Le Veque, Suzan Tisdale, Vonda Sinclair, Kathleen Ball and many more.

As a special treat, I have actors and cover models, Michael Foster and Sean Hampton coming to the party on LIVE video to talk to you about what it’s like to be a cover model. Period Images photographer VJ Dunraven will also be taking you behind the scenes of a cover model shoot.

There will be free books, and prizes each day. I’ll be giving away a terrific gift basket on Mother’s Day with everything you need to pamper yourself, so be sure to stop by. And if you like to cook, my husband and I will be cooking up one of the recipes found in the stories of my Tarnished Saints Series on Mother’s Day – and you are invited to our kitchen to be a part of the experience.

I also have a contest you can enter starting now through the rafflecopter on the bottom of this page. I’m giving away a Kindle Fire, a $50 amazon gift card, and one lucky winner will win their choice of every book from one of my series.

Some more exciting news is that my small town contemporary book, Igniting Andrew is a nominee for the Rone Award from InD’tale magazine. To get to the finals, I’ll need all of your votes, but the voting doesn’t take place until the week of May 15th. (I’ll remind you.)

But for now, if you haven’t already preordered your copy of Highland Spring, it is only 99 cents for a limited time. And be sure to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series beforehand. Reckless Highlander is only 99 cents, but the price is changing very soon.

AUDIOBOOK CONTEST: From now until May 14th, I am having a contest where 3 lucky people will win an audiobook of Ruthless Knight. Go HERE to enter.

New on the horizon is a multi-author boxed set called Romantic Legends by USA Today and bestselling authors. You’ll find my book, A Viking’s Promise in this set. It is the only place the book is available for now. 99 cents, KU reads free.

So go ahead and start entering my 60th book giveaway, and remember to stop by the contest from May 13 – May 18th!

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.

A tribute for the holidays!

With Easter as well as Mother’s Day approaching quickly, how do you intend to spend your holidays? I love throwing something on the grill and enjoy listening to the sounds of spring, such as the birds singing. I can’t wait to see what Mother Nature has drummed up with the wildflowers in my yard. One of my favorite things to grill is corn on the cob. Did you know I have original recipes in my Tarnished Saints’ Series? Here is the recipe for Angel’s Picnic Corn from the book, Doubting Thomas. Angel works for Child Services and while on vacation at Thunder Lake with her young daughter, she unofficially investigates a man named Thomas Taylor. Thomas is the single father of six boys and has been accused by the town of murdering his wife. I love this book because it shows the life of a falsely accused single parent struggling to do whatever he can to keep his children from being taken away. This first book of the series is only 99 cents. (KU reads free.) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a tribute to mothers everywhere, I put together a limited time set called Medieval Matriarchs. For only 99 cents you can get six books that all have mothers as the heroines. (KU reads free.) It’s not always easy being a mother, and these stories deal with some of the trials and hardships as well as the joys of having a baby or raising a child. And of course, there is romance involved with the heroes who end up being the fathers to the children. They also make some wonderful husbands to my independent heroines. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For those of you who enjoy a historical western romance, I’ve also got a limited time offer of Wanted: Cowboys of the Old West for only 99 cents thru 4/18. These stories are sweet novellas that all take place in the old west. I have to admit my favorite is The Drifter. I loved doing the research on stagecoach swing stations and found that life very interesting. (KU reads free.) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been busy working on Highland Spring – Book 1 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series. This is the series that follows the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series and is about the bastard triplets’ sisters. Spring has been stolen as a baby and raised as a warrior. But when she marries Shaw Gordon in a fake alliance in order to help her father and her clan overtake Shaw’s castle, things don’t go as planned. She’s found herself falling in love with the enemy, and becoming attached to his three children as well. Can love soften the heart of a woman who has known nothing but raiding and killing in her life? And will Shaw be the man who breaks down the walls that imprison her hidden emotions within her? My heroine has mastered the bow and arrows, and I am in the process of researching how bow and arrows were made back in the medieval times. It is fascinating to see what can be constructed from just trees in the forest!

This book is now on preorder for the special price of only 99 cents. Release date is May 18th!

Enjoy the beautiful spring weather!

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.

When he saves Piper Westbrook’s life after she falls overboard during a storm, he takes a liking to the woman who is all business.

Then a storm brews between them that only an experienced sailor would know how to ride out.

Can a man with a strong passion for sailing convince a woman who fears water to see through his eyes before it’s too late, or will a whirlwind romance be blown away and washed out to sea by one wrong decision?
