I am so excited to tell you about my new preorder, Keeper of the Flame: Orrick. Scheduled to release on Oct. 28th, you can preorder your copy today for only $2.99. (Limited time price)
This is Book 5 in my Second in Command Series. This series features secondary characters from any of my series, giving them their happily ever after.
Orrick was the old sorcerer first seen in my Legacy of the Blade Series. He is immortal and has chosen to stay in the form of an old man because he never wants to fall in love again. Seeing his wife grow old and die has wounded him deeply. But now, Lady Hope has arrived at his tower door seeking his help to find the Eternal Flame. Orrick is curious about the intriguing woman and shapeshifts back into his young and handsome self to find out more. After all, his secret is that he is the Keeper of the Flame. But once in his younger form, he starts to fall in love once again.
Be sure to also get your copy of Highland Storm that releases on Sept. 19th, because Orrick plays a main role in that book as well. This is Book 1 of my new Highland Chronicles Series. My hero, Hawke MacKeefe is the son of Storm MacKeefe from my book, Lady Renegade. (Each book can be read without prior knowledge of the others.)
A storm is brewing in the Highlands, and there is new Highland Romance coming your way soon! It’s getting closer to the release date of Highland Storm, Book 1 in my new Highland Chronicles Series. The book releases on Sept. 19th, which is less than 2 weeks away.
If you’ve been following some of my series, you will realize that the heroes in this 4 book collection are all sons of some of my past heroes.
The next three books in the series are about the sons of those crazy Highlanders from my MadMan MacKeefe Series. Ethan (Book 2) is the superstitious but very handsome son of Onyx. Book 3 will feature the sword-wielding Logan, son of Aidan. And the last book of the series highlights Caleb, son of Ian. Caleb is the smallest of the men but turning out to be my favorite because I assure you he will bring a smile to your face. (These books are stand-alones and can be read without knowledge of the previous books about the mens’ fathers.)

Happy 4th of July to those of you who celebrate the holiday. I’ll hopefully be out on the lake watching the fireworks from the boat if the weather holds up. I’ve decided that this is my official start to summer. No more remodeling projects around the house. From now through fall, I am going to be relaxing, enjoying myself and believe it or not, finally starting a new series! I’ll tell you more about it in my next newsletter, but here is a hint: It’s Scottish, Medieval, and has something to do with those lovable but crazy guys in my Madmen MacKeefe series.
For now, I have a free book and a special deal to hold you over and give you a little more to read this summer. Hired Heart is FREE from July 4th to the 8th. This book takes place on a tropical island, but don’t let that fool you. It takes place at Christmastime, so we have a little Christmas in July going on here.
Remember the show Fantasy Island? This is a little like that where fantasies come true in a paradise-like setting. Samantha Forester has a crush on her Scrooge of a boss, Max Sutherland. So when he asks her to book a trip to Aragon Island where he can inspect the work of his construction crew, she takes the advantage of booking fantasies for the two of them without him knowing what he is walking into! (Some of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater make guest appearances in this fun story, so you don’t want to miss it.) Pick up a tropical drink and get ready for fun in the sun.
Get Hired Heart for FREE from July 4th – 8th. Kindle Unlimited members read free as well.

She is known to be a gossip, and can’t keep a secret for the life of her. But when she starts having feelings for Lord Bedivere and finds out he is an assassin, her power to remain silent is put to the test.
Get your copy today for only 99 cents. The books in the series can be read in any order. Be sure to pick up a copy of the audiobook afterward for a discount! (KU reads series free)
Now, for a fun and easy treat to make for the holiday. When I wrote Lady of the Mist, one of the dishes being served was a Scottish Crowdie. This berry trifle is a modernized adaptation of the dish and a heck of a lot easier to make. Just click the link to get the recipe for Echo’s Berry Trifle.
Well, I’m off to watch fireworks and hopefully catch a little sun. Until next time,
I am excited to tell you that Highland Secrets is a RONE Award nominee from InD’tale Magazine. The voting for the Scottish Historical category (week 4) is now open but will close on May 12th. Only 5 authors will make it through to the finals, so I have a lot of competition and need your help!
Recently, I offered Highland Secrets for free. If you picked up a copy and enjoyed it, or even if you just want to support me, I urge you to please vote for Highland Secrets. I have been a finalist for the RONE Award before, but have yet to win. This means a lot to me, so I hope you will vote. Click HEREto go directly to the voting page. Look for Highland Secrets under the Scottish category. If you have never voted in the RONE Awards before, you’ll need to register and log in first in order to vote. Do that HERE. There are other categories to vote in as well so be sure to check them out.
I also wanted to offer you a new collection I put together called Battle Brides. You can pick up the four full-length novels (over 1k pages) for only 99 cents. (KU reads free.) This is a limited time price and offer, so be sure to get it right away. Each book features a woman with a weapon who isn’t afraid to use it. (Ok, can I say they are kick-ass heroines?) I love writing about strong women and the four heroines in these novels are some of the strongest yet!

Now on preorder for 99 cents is Starstruck Cowboy. Luke Tyler is a cowboy who will do anything to earn money to buy back his ranch. He takes a job as a stuntman in a B movie, and finds himself also playing the lead role. When they start filming on location at the Bright Star Ranch, he meets the rancher’s feisty daughter, Star Brighton.
Star can herd cattle, rope a steer, ride a horse and run a ranch better than any of the hired hands. But when her mother rents out their ranch to Valens’ Motion Pictures, she’s not happy. The womanizer, Luke Tyler is someone she can’t stand. That is, until he kisses her and her opinion changes quickly.
This book is actually a book I wrote at the beginning of my writing career about twenty years ago. I thought it was lost forever when I switched over my computers. But recently, I found it on a floppy disk (anyone remember those?) and was able to save it. So here from the archives of the black hole that swallows up ancient manuscripts, I bring you a fun, fast paced romantic comedy of a cowboy gone stuntman and a tomboy of a rancher’s daughter.
Preorder Starstruck Cowboynow for only 99 cents. The price will go up shortly after release on March 23rd.

I’m not sure how cold it is where you live, but in the Chicagoland area, it isn’t just snowy and icy but frigidly cold.
