A Fairy Tale Life – New release and free book

It’s been a long time in coming, but my Tangled Tales Series is now complete! You can pick up your copy of Heart of Ice (Snow Queen) Book 7 for only 99 cents and KU reads free.

MacKay de Bar is the last of the siblings to be cursed by the evil witch, Hecuba. MacKay’s anger toward the old hag causes him to break her magic mirror. One of the shards embeds into his chest, causing dark magic to take its toll as his curse is revealed. He is left on a frozen island with Lady Eira Koldottir, a warrior woman with a heart as cold as ice. But with MacKay’s curse, he sees things in opposite. So the meaner she is toward him, the more he likes her. (This leads to a few very humorous scenes.)

I came up with the idea of telling twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of classic fairy tales because I enjoyed the tales as a child but didn’t like all the horrible endings. This was my way to rewrite them the way I thought they should be.

I tried to stay true to the plot of the fairy tales but add twists and turns and situations you wouldn’t expect. The hard part was narrowing it down to only seven tales since I liked so many of them. If you enjoy fairy tale romance and would like a chance to win the entire series in print, signed by me, now is your chance. To enter, go to my Heart of Ice Facebook Party Page and look for the post with the same graphic as posted here. All you need to do is leave a comment, it’s easy. I will be choosing a winner at the end of my facebook party. The party is on Thursday the 15th. I will start it off with a live video at 3 pm central time. During the day I will be having flash giveaways and choosing the winners LIVE, so you’ll want to keep your eye on the page.

At 4 pm, my guest author from the UK, Mary Lancaster will be stopping by. And during the evening, you will find guest appearances and more giveaways from authors Victoria Zak, Katherine Bone, Cathey MacRae, Alexa Aston and Mia Pride. Be sure to check out the times, and click the GOING button if you think you will stop by.

In celebration of my new release, I am offering Lady and the Wolf (Red Riding Hood) Book 1 of the Tangled Tales Series FREE from March 13th – 17th.

And in celebration of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, you can get a copy of The Duke and the Dryad on kindle countdown for only 99 cents!

If you like contests, please enter the St. Patrick’s Day facebook Hop where you will have a chance to win one or more of 70 gift cards. Click on the photo to find out more. Hope to see you at my party!

New preorder: Forbidden

At the overwhelming request from readers who wanted Claude Montague’s story, now available for preorder is Forbidden: Claude – Book 2 of my Second in Command Series.

This series takes secondary characters from any of my series and delves into their lives, giving them the happily-ever-after they deserve.

Claude Montague was first seen in The Baron’s Destiny – Book 3 of The Barons of the Cinque Ports Series. He was the fifteen year old son of Celestine de Bar and John Montague. If you remember the book, Claude falls in love with another of the baron’s daughters, Lady Rose. Although Rose has befriended Claude – the shy boy from France who first meets his father – she has eyes for her father’s squire, Toft instead.

If you haven’t already read The Baron’s Destiny, you might want to pick up a copy to read first so that no surprises are ruined when you read Forbidden: Claude. But it isn’t required, as the book can be read as a standalone. To read excerpts from the series or to buy any of the Barons of the CInque Ports books, click HERE.

You can preorder your copy of Forbidden: Claude for only 99 cents! The book will release on April 18th. The story of the French knight, Sir Claude Montague, continues eight years later when he returns to England still carrying a torch for Lady Rose who is pregnant and married to Toft. Will Claude learn to let go of the past so he doesn’t miss out on what his future holds in store for him? Rose’s nursemaid, Evelina, points this out to him as she helps to mend his broken heart. Claude finds himself falling in love with Evelina. However, he doesn’t know she is a lady in disguise, running from a betrothal. With her position as a servant, a love between them is one that is forbidden!

If you have already read The Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, you might also remember a secondary character named Brody. Brody was Rowen’s first mate aboard the pirate ship in Restless Sea Lord – Book 1. At the end of the series, Brody is betrayed by the crew. He goes missing, but now it is your chance to find out what happened to Brody in Pirate in the Mist: Brody – Book 1 of the Second in Command Series.

It is available now for only 99 cents and kindle unlimited members read free.

If you would like to read excerpts or buy any of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series click HERE.

Happy spring, everyone. I have a brand new series coming this summer that I will tell you about soon. I think you will be as excited about it as I am. So watch for future emails to find out more.

A Special Christmas Gift For You!

I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! This year sped by so fast, I still can’t believe it is over. 2017 saw the release and/or completion of two new medieval series, Legendary Bastards of the Crown and Seasons of Fortitude. I also released the first book of a new series called Second in Command that takes secondary characters from any of my series and gives them their own story and happily-ever-after ending.

Here is a quick glance of the books or series I released in 2017.

As a special thank you present to all my readers, I am offering FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th, A Kiss to Die For boxed set. These are four full-length books of several of my series that have a murder mystery combined with, of course, romance as the mystery is unveiled. (KU reads all series free.)












Now, I want to tell you about another free book that is very different than what I usually post. My father is 88 years old, and when his grandchildren were kids, he used to write poems for them. I wanted to do something special for my father who has always been so loving and giving, never thinking about himself. So those same poems that meant so much to my children long ago now will live on forever in a book by my father called Squeaky the Squirrel (A Children’s Book of Poems.) This is a book for young children, but it can be enjoyed by everyone. The ebook is FREE from Dec. 22nd – 26th. (If you prefer the picture book as a paperback, that is available for $9.99.)

What’s coming up on the agenda for me next year? First, you will see the completion of my Tangled Tales Series. These books are twisted, tangled, romantic retellings of fairy tales. Lady in the Tower (Rapunzel) is book 5 and will be released on Jan. 25th. You can preorder it now for the limited-time price of 99 cents by clicking HERE. If you like to read books in order, (although each book in all my series are stand-alones) here is the the entire series at a glance. Click on the photo to find out more or to read excerpts on any of the books.

Watch for the finish of the series, the stories about Cinderella and the Snow Queen, coming this winter. I also have another medieval series or two on the horizon that I think you will love. However, I am superstitious about saying too much too soon, so you’ll have to wait just a little longer to find out more. Expect another book or two in the Second in Command Series as well.












If you enjoy audiobooks, please take a look at my audiobook library. Winter’s Flame – Book 4 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series is now available as an audiobook on amazon, itunes and audible. Listen to a sample on any of those sites. Other new audiobooks are Lady and the Wolf and Tarnished Saints’ Christmas. Watch for audiobooks of Just a Kiss (Frog Prince) and Beast Lord (Beauty and the Beast) coming in the next few months.

For a little holiday reading, you might want to try a few of my holiday themed and winter-based books such as Tarnished Saints’ Christmas (FREE on all venues), Or my Romantic Winter Wishes Collection that includes My Christmas Soldier, Hired Heart and Loving John99 cents and KU reads free. This is a limited time offer, so get yours before it is gone. 

I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
