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.

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.

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.

First Kiss Friday

 Every Friday, author Laurel O’Donnell features an author’s book with the first kiss scene. Today, my book, Ian is featured!

First Kiss Friday – Ian – Book 3 in the Madman MacKeefe series by Elizabeth Rose

by laurel

Today’s First Kiss Friday featured guest is Elizabeth Rose, author of historical romanceIan – Book 3 in the Madman MacKeefe series.  Welcome Liz!  Here’s the first kiss between Ian MacKeefe and Kyla.

Ian500

“Dinna hate me, Kyla. Ye have te understand thet nothin’ can e’er happen between us.” Ian’s words said one thing but his body was saying another. Why did he have his arm around her, pulling her closer, if he was trying to push her away?

Still, his words sounded so final and she wondered for a moment if she was just fantasizing again and there was really nothing between them after all. Mayhap her expectations were set too high and she shouldn’t get her hopes up. Not when it had to do with Ian MacKeefe. She was confused, but had to know for sure.

“Somethin’ already has happened between us,” she said, turning and looking up into his eyes. The firelight danced off his sun-kissed skin and the whole moment would have been special if only he would drop the walls between them.

“Nothin’ happened,” he said, as if he truly believed it.

“Ye kissed me, Ian MacKeefe, and if ye say ye felt nothin’ between us then I say ye are the biggest liar I’ve e’er met.”

“I didna feel anythin’.”

She blinked once, then twice, not believing he was really acting like such a dolt. She had to make him admit that he was lying. This may be the only chance she ever got.

“Prove it,” she challenged him.

“What do ye mean?”

She raised her chin and looked him straight in the eye. “Kiss me again, and if ye can honestly say thet ye feel nothin’, then I swear I’ll leave ye alone and ne’er mention it again.”

He laughed then, and the brightness of his smile as well as the deep, rich rumble in his chest vibrating against her, about drove her from her mind. Damn, why did he have to be so desirable?

He lowered his head and looked up from the corner of one hooded eye. One side of his mouth twisted wryly as he answered. “I dinna want te play games, lassie,” he said in a voice so soft it was almost a whisper.

And when he removed his arm from around her shoulders and started to move away, she decided she didn’t want to die without feeling Ian’s lips upon hers one more time. She daringly took hold of his shoulders and reached upward, pressing her lips firmly against his before he could object.

Then she pulled away quickly, her hand going to her mouth, unable to believe her own brashness, and she waited for his reaction. A sense of excitement surged through her and the exchange between them seemed to have set her mouth afire. She slowly lowered her hand and wet her lips slightly with the tip of her tongue, tasting his essence of whisky and pure, male power. Then her eyes intermingled with his, and she felt her heart hammering in her chest as she waited for what seemed an eternity for him to respond to what she’d done.

He didn’t speak at first, only studied her with his intense, smoldering eyes. She felt a delicious shudder wash through her as she recognized the way he was looking at her right now. It was the look of lust she’d seen every time he was with a woman he was about to bed. His hooded eyes drank her in, and he peered up through his long, black lashes that had no right belonging to a man. His hazelnut eyes turned soft and silky, then suddenly mixed with an intense fire that made him seem dangerous, yet too seductive for her to ever look away.

“Well? Did ye feel anythin’?” she asked softly, almost choking on her words. Her own emotions were spiraling out of control from just one kiss, but she figured he was going to lie to her again, and act like he didn’t feel the strong attraction that was obvious between them.

“I dinna ken,” he said, surprising her with his answer. He reached up and scratched at the side of his face, his hand blocking his mouth momentarily, but she didn’t miss the way his tongue darted out and flicked across his lips before he lowered his hand again. She wondered if he were tasting her essence as well. “It was too fast,” he said. “I’m used te kisses thet last a little longer.”

“So . . . should we try it again?” she asked carefully, hoping this was what he was hinting at and that she wasn’t misreading him. She found herself staring at his mouth in anticipation.

“Mayhap we should.” He reached over and lifted her chin gently and brushed his thumb along her bottom lip. She closed her eyes, feeling a tingle run through her as she eagerly waited. “But this time, we need te try it slower so we can both see if we feel anythin’,” he told her.
