Two FREE Books and a NEW Release!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Day! Moving forward into the new year I have some special deals as well as a new release for you.

First of all, I am excited to tell you about Behind the Chain Mail. (Click title to buy for 99 cents.) I have always been fascinated by “behind the scenes” information of movies and decided I wanted to show the “behind the scenes” of the making of some of my series as well.

In this book you will find out about my inspirations, as well as learn some in-depth facts on my characters and find out more about the stories of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. I not only share fun medieval facts, but have provided colorful graphics, a map of the castles and areas included in each story, and a family tree. You will also find excerpts from each book, so if you haven’t read the series yet, you can see what is to come. The book is also available in print (but with black and white graphics to keep down your cost.) And as an extra bonus book within Behind the Chain Mail, you will find a brand new short story called The Gift featuring the legendary bastard triplets that is only found here. Pick up your copy today!

Another announcement is that Scottish Rose: Coira which was first seen as part of the Rogues to Lovers multi-author set, is now available as a standalone ebook and paperback. It is now listed as Book 3 in my Second in Command Series that features secondary characters from some of my series. Click on the title to buy.

Now for the FREE books. The Legacy of the Blade Prequel is FREE from Jan. 8 to the 12th. So be sure to click on the title to pick up a copy to start reading my oldest series, Legacy of the Blade to find out about Lord Corbett Blake and his long lost siblings. (All books available as ebook, paperbacks, and in audio.)

The second book I am offering for free is Reckless Highlander. (Click on the title to collect your free ebook.) Since Behind the Chain Mail talks about the legendary bastard triplets of the king, I have decided to give you Reed’s book for free. I love this series and in this book you will see a LIVE chess game featuring people at the end. That is something I have never seen in a romance novel before. See the whole Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series to find out more.

After you pick up your free ebook of Reckless Highlander, treat yourself to the audiobook as well. If you already have the ebook, you can get the audiobook on amazon for only $7.49! (Regular price $19.95.) Listen to a snippet of the book narrated by Brian J. Gill on my amazon page.

If you are an audiobook lover, here are a few of my newest audiobooks: Forbidden: Claude, and Rebellious Secrets! Click on the titles to buy from amazon, or to listen to an excerpt. Forbidden Secrets is done by my new UK narrator, Kevin E. Green. I love his voice and am sure you will too!

I have lots of surprises, new books and giveaways planned for this year, so be sure to watch for this blog. If you haven’t already signed up for my newsletter you can do that at the top right of my home page on my website.

What’s coming up in the next few months? Hopefully a new Holiday Knights book for Valentine’s Day (if I can get it written in time) and also don’t forget about the release of Forgotten Secrets, the last book of my Secrets of the Heart Series. Morag is a gossip and she falls in love with an assassin, so this will put her to the test! Just click on the title to preorder now for $2.99. The release date is scheduled for February 20th. My narrator is working on the audiobook so it will hopefully be released the same time as the ebook and paperback. I am very excited about this book because I love Morag’s character. It was a joy writing about the daughters of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown.

Looking forward to a fun, productive new year!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Just a quick note to let all my readers know how much you mean to me. I hope I have touched some of your hearts with my books this past year and that I will continue to do so in the upcoming year as well.

Since we’ll be celebrating today – and eating probably more than we should – I wanted to include a fast and simple recipe for something I am making to go along with the ham. It is my original recipe for deviled eggs. Click HERE to see the recipe that also appears in my book, Loving John.

Did you know that Tarnished Saints’ Christmas is FREE? Be sure to pick up a copy so you can read about the Bad Boys of Sweetwater from my Tarnished Saints Series and find out what happened to them one Christmas while they were just boys. Available on all venues. (Also available as audiobook and in print forms.)

Please have a safe and happy holiday! (My Granddog, Banshee is enjoying her first Christmas with us!)

A Free Book for Winter!

As the snow falls here in the Chicago area and the temperature continues to get colder and colder, I figured I would give away a free book to help everyone warm up.

Winter’s Flame is FREE from Dec. 5th to the 9th. Lady Winter is skilled in the art of forging blades and Sir Martin de Grey is in need of blade made from Damascus steel. Mistaking Winter as the daughter of the blacksmith instead of a noblewoman, he takes her to his castle to finish a job that was part of a former deal.

The romance warms up as sparks fly between them, and the passionate kisses that follow later becomes hotter than the fires of the forge.

 

 

Pick up your free copy by clicking the amazon link. And afterwards, be sure to get your copy of the audiobook on amazon for a discounted price as well. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter’s Flame is the last book in my Seasons of Fortitude Series. However, they can be read in any order. If you haven’t read Highland Spring, Book 1, you can pick it up on sale for only 99 cents through the 11th. Just click the following link.

So thanks, everyone, once again for being a part of this journey with me. (For the record, I am working on my 78th book already.

New Release/Happy Thanksgiving!

First, I want to wish my U.S. readers a very happy, safe and healthy Thanksgiving today. This is the day we remember our blessings and give thanks for everything and everyone we have in our lives. I am thankful for my friends and family, and for you, my readers. Writing and publishing my stories and being able to share them with you is a dream come true and I am indeed blessed.

As you enjoy your turkey, cranberries, potatoes and pumpkin pie today, I have a new book for you to read while you are lounging on the couch with a cup of apple cider and relaxing with your loved ones.

Mistletoe and Chain Mail is now available for only 99 cents and Kindle Unlimited members read free! If you enjoy audiobooks, you are in luck. This book will be available in audiobook format sometime in the next two weeks, and is already available as a paperback as well.

This is Book 1 in my new Holiday Knights Series. In this book you will experience the traditions and customs of the medieval times. Find out how they celebrated Christmas and what crazy things they did for twelve days straight. I had a fun time writing this book and especially including all the types of foods they ate back then.

Did you know they didn’t have potatoes or pumpkins in the middle ages? But they did have mince pie and roasted goose. My hero, Sir Adam de Ware has the unusual talent of being able to whip up a delicious meal. And he uses this skill as his secret weapon to seduce Lady Eva Cavendish to get information since he is a spy for the king.

You will also find out how a piggy bank originated as well as revisit the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas as you read each chapter of the book. I am very excited about this series. With each book I will delve into the way the lords and ladies of the castle celebrated holidays way back when.

Watch for more Holiday Knights, the next book featuring the holiday of Valentine’s Day, coming to preorder soon!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to tell you about a special limited time collection I put together for the holidays. It is a boxed set with five of my books that all take place in the winter or at Christmastime or New Year’s.

Winter Romance at the Castle is a medieval collection featuring Winter’s Flame, Destiny’s Kiss and Onyx, as well as my medieval paranormal book Heart of Ice (Snow Queen) that takes place in a frozen land. I have also included a special bonus book, a contemporary book called Loving John from my Tarnished Saints Series. In this book my hero is a Musher and has a dog sled team, so hang on and get ready for a wild ride through the snow. This is Book 9 in the series, but it can be read as a stand alone. If you would like to read the prequel of the series, Tarnished Saints Christmas for FREE click HERE. (The prequel is also available at iBooks, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.)

Remember to pick up the collection of Winter Romance at the Castle for only 99 cents or KU reads free. But this is only for the holidays, so get your copy before it disappears.

Once again, enjoy the holiday and I wish you all good health and a safe journey venturing into winter.

New Christmas Release!

Now available is the multi-author boxed set, Christmas Knights. This set includes brand new, never before published Christmas stories from bestselling authors, Catherine Kean, Laurel O’Donnell, Anna Markland and myself. Only 99 cents and Kindle Unlimited members read free. This is a limited time offer.  My story in the set is called Silent Knight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you remember my book, Summer’s Reign – Book 2 of my Seasons of Fortitude Series? In the beginning of the book, my heroine, Summer, births a stillborn baby boy with a twisted leg. She gives it to the guard to bury.

I had never meant for that to go anywhere until I came up with the idea for this set. The boy was not dead after all and the guard never buried it, but stole it and raised the boy as his own. Alexander (who was named Peter at birth) has a twisted leg but is still a mercenary. In this book you will read about his discovery of being a noble and finding true love despite the fact he is lame. I guarantee you will be crying by the end. (In a good way of course.)

Enjoy this new read and look for Silent Knight to be released on its own sometime next year. Here is a sneak peek at the cover that will grace the front of the single title once it is released in that form.

The books in this series will all be medieval novellas that focus around a holiday – medieval style. Now you can find out where the holiday traditions originated and what they did in medieval times, what they ate, and how they celebrated.

Halloween Treats – No Tricks!

This Halloween, I have chosen six of my books that either take place at Halloween or have some spooky things happening in them, and priced them at 99 cents for you.

Halloween first originated many years ago where it started as a pagan Celtic celebration called Samhain. There were no pumpkins in medieval England, but they carved gourds and lit them with candles to ward away the evil spirits. Children didn’t go trick-or-treating for candy, but they begged at doorsteps for soul cakes instead. Each cake eaten supposedly released a poor spirit from purgatory. The soul cakes had a cross on top and were filled with currants and spices. Click HERE to see a photo and get the recipe to make these ancient soul cakes.

The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill: This is a vampire romance inspired by a real life circus train wreck and the cemetery where the performers were laid to rest. I’ve visited this cemetery personally. Basil Wensilton III guards over a vial of potion, living in the cemetery keeping the other vampires at bay when snoopy reporter Cassie Briggs, comes looking for her missing sister.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Familiar:   Slade Spencer is a warlock in denial who comes back to his hometown to find that his past lover, Susie Vasilly is now a cursed woman who shapeshifts into his evil uncle’s cat – or Familiar each night. The villain’s three dozen cats were inspired by an old woman who once lived in my neighborhood and had tons of cats in her house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ian: (MadMan MacKeefe Series) Ian MacKeefe sees the face of a man he’s killed in the bonfire on All Hallow’s Eve. Little does he know that his best friend’s sister, Kyla has eyes for him but her future lies in an evil man’s hands instead unless Ian can change it. In this story you will find out how a lot of our Halloween traditions first got started.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lady and the Wolf: (Tangled Tales Series) Hugh de Bar has been cursed by an evil witch and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. One night he meets up with Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton and her crossbow in the forest and finds out she is the granddaughter of the man who made him this way. This was inspired by the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pandora Curse: (Greek Myth Series) Vara the Conqueror is a ruthless warrior woman who has to lose her vices unknowingly, and Hera’s soothsayer son, Nicolai is the one to do it. Inspired by the Greek Myth of Pandora and the shows Xena and Hercules from many years ago. (You will love Baruch the shapeshifting minion that brings humor to this read.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Muffet: (Once Upon a Rhyme Series) Candy Willowsby is taken over by the ghost of Little Miss Muffet who is out for revenge. Inspired by the nursery rhyme, Little Miss Muffet as well as an old scary house in my neighborhood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pick up your Halloween Reads now because the prices will be changing right after the holiday in a few days’ time. All books are also available in print, and some in audiobook form as well. To find out more about these books or other books in each series please visit my website.

Happy a safe and happy Halloween everyone!
