For those of you in the U.S., have a happy fourth of July. And if you’re interested in a simple but delicious treat for the holidays, try Echo’s Berry Trifle.

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!
My second summer special is the ENTIRE Tangled Tales Series Books 1-7 in one boxed set for you called Tangled Tales: The Complete Series. 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!

Hello and I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend.
As you all know by now, I’ve been publishing my father’s poems into books as a thank you to him for all the things he’s done for me my entire life. He is always thinking of others and never himself so I thought it was time I did something special for him. He will be 89 this year, and having his poems published to share with all of you has been a thrill for him. I also thank you for all the reviews.
I also wanted to tell you about a special project I’m involved in. It is a multi-author set called Rogues to Lovers: The Legend of the Blue Rose. It is now available on amazon to preorder for only 99 cents! These are all NEW stories by USA Today and Bestselling Authors. You can also preorder it from iTunes, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble. Release date is Sept. 11th. My story is called Scottish Rose. It is the story of Coira MacDuff who some of you might remember was the sister of my heroine in Aidan – Book 2 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. More about her story coming up later on.
I’ve been working on Seductive Secrets – Book 2 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. This is the book about Willow, daughter of Rook who is one of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. It isn’t available on preorder yet, but I was excited to show you the cover. So here is a sneak peek of what’s to come. And if you haven’t already pre-ordered your copy of Highland Secrets – Book 1, there is still time. The price of the book will go up right after the release date of July 6th, so don’t wait!

As promised, I have a special deal on one of the books of my Tarnished Saints Series for the week. I chose one of my favorite books of the series, Judging Judas – Book 3, which is only 99 cents through May 27th.
Twelve brothers growing up together can’t be easy. Judas did some things he’s not proud of, and is trying to make amends with his brother, Levi, for being the one to send him to prison. Returning to his hometown as Sweet Water’s sheriff, Judas has a lot of work to do. The town is after him to make Levi take the goats off of the roof of his diner. But that is the least of Judas’ problems. When a pregnant teenage girl steals his squad car, he meets up with the girl’s mother, Laney McDermott – the girl he left at the altar in his younger days. And the surprises get worse when he realizes he has just arrested his own daughter!
Pick up your copy of Judging Judas for only 99 cents while the deal lasts. And don’t forget that you can read the prequel of the series, Tarnished Saints’ Christmas, for FREE on all venues. After you collect your free copy, you can pick up the audiobook for a discounted price.

Speaking of audiobooks, I have some exciting news for my historical readers. The very first series I ever wrote, Legacy of the Blade is in the process of being re-edited and put into audiobook form. The Legacy of the Blade Prequel is already available in audio, narrated by a new narrator to me, Kevin E Green who is from the UK. You have to hear his wonderful voice. He brings a whole new depth to my stories with the way he reads the books. He will be narrating the rest of the series too, and you can expect to see Lord of the Blade – Book 1, (the first book I ever wrote) in audiobook form this summer! If you’d like to hear a sample of the prequel, you can click on the cover to go to my amazon page to play the sample there, or to pick up your free copy of the ebook.
I have all the covers for the series finished and I will say I think they are my best covers yet. I have included a tease of the cover Seductive Secrets – Book 2, Willow’s story – coming soon. Oh, and Fia’s younger sister, Morag plays a big role in the series. I have decided to add a fourth book to the series so Morag will have her story told too. Here is a tease for the cover of Seductive Secrets, Book 2.
This series is about the eldest daughters of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown. The late Queen Philippa has chosen Fia, Willow and Maira to be part of her secret society of strong women. (That is all the secrets I will divulge at this time. Smile.)
