Lord of the Blade is FREE!

Lord of the Blade – Book 1 of my Legacy of the Blade Series is FREE from September 8-12.

Over twenty years ago I started writing my first romance novel. That was Lord of the Blade – back then called Devon’s Desire. It was almost bought by Harlequin, but the editor left on maternity leave and with her went my chance to be published by this big, prestigious publishing house.

Nevertheless, when I started publishing my own books after losing my job five years ago, I started with Lord of the Blade. It was an experiment and I thought no one would buy a lone book from a virtually unknown author. But, to my surprise, it sold quite well and to date is one of my top three sellers!

I didn’t have social media or a mailing list or even a website for the first year of publishing on my own. Still, the readers somehow found me and bought my books. Thank you, all of you for all your support! I hadn’t written a word in ten years, and the five books I had traditionally published were virtually dead by now since it had been so long. So this was a scary, but exciting new career change for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today, I am proud to say I am working on my 75th book and loving being my own boss. I control what I write and I make my own covers. Yes, this is a dream job for me, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Lord of the Blade has recently gone through professional editing, as well as gotten a new cover. And it is now available in audiobook form, narrated by the multi-talented UK narrator, Kevin E. Green. (Click on the audiobook photo to purchase or to listen to an excerpt of the narration on amazon. The audiobook is also available on itunes and audible.) The narration brings the story and the wonderful characters to life. Above you’ll see a movie poster for the book. Hopefully, someday that dream will come true. I would love to see my books made into movies.

 

You will notice a few other new covers in the series as well. Watch for the whole series to be in audiobook form, hopefully by the end of the year! The books are all available as paperbacks on amazon or Barnes and Noble or ebooks from amazon only. If you are a kindle unlimited member, you can read the entire series for free.

 

 

Lord of the Blade is a story about a man (Corbett Blake) who is out to find redemption since his father married the vicar’s daughter and has sullied the Blake family name. (See the prequel for more on this.) Lord Corbett’s father had been stripped of his title before he died. But now Corbett has worked hard to regain the castle and lands that were lost. All he needs to satisfy the king and bring honor back to the family name is a noble wife. Devon is a girl who has been hidden away and raised at the monastery by the old midwife, Heartha, brought there by an old sorcerer right after she was born. Corbett finds her and brings her to his castle as his servant, and against all rules, he and Devon start to fall in love. But not everything is as it seems. And sometimes our dreams can come true if only we believe. Watch Lord Corbett’s raven closely, because there are some secrets amiss and you won’t want to overlook a clue.

So pick up your free copy of Lord of the Blade before the offer expires. And if you’d like to see the old covers, I haven’t had the chance to change them in the booktrailer yet. It is still a great trailer, so check it out as well as some of my other booktrailers by clicking HERE.

The books in the series are: Legacy of the Blade Prequel, Lord of the Blade, Lady Renegade, Lord of Illusion and Lady of the Mist.

Enjoy this epic series of honor, redemption and love. And be sure always to live your dreams to the fullest because life is too short to let it pass you by. 

Finally Home is here!

Hi everyone!

I am excited to tell you that the first book in my Sweet Nothings Series, Finally Home, has arrived. This will be a contemporary series with novellas that are sweet and clean and full of romantic emotions. It won’t take you behind the closed bedroom door, but none of the romance is compromised and these books will be filled with kisses, memories, light touches, gentle caresses, and a whole lot of attraction and romance. So why not give it a try?

Finally Home is a story I started years ago and found recently. I decided I really liked it and wanted to finish it. This is the story of a second chance romance between Allie Martinez and Logan MacQuaid. It is also a secret baby romance since I always love those. Of course, they all have happy endings.

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to tell you that I have finally gotten back to my young adult series that is based on dark, twisted nursery rhymes. It is my Once Upon a Rhyme Series. Mary, Mary (Quite Contrary) is book 1 and is now available with a brand new cover. On preorder is Book 2, Muffet (Little Miss Muffet) and Blue Book 3, (Little Boy Blue) is coming soon.

These are spooky tales set in contemporary time but with a paranormal twist. The books can be read and loved by all ages. So follow Raven Birchfield and her friends as they fight off evil characters of ancient nursery rhymes who start to invade their world. Muffet is on preorder now for only 99 cents and will be released on October 4th, just in time for Halloween.

If you like paranormal stories, you can enter the All Things Magical giveaway and have a chance to win a kindle ereader, giftcards and even ebooks. Be sure to follow me on Bookbub for an extra entry. Just click the photo to enter – and be sure to check out the bookfair while you are there.

If you haven’t already preorder Seductive Secrets, you’ll want to pick it up for only 99 cents while the price lasts. Exciting news: I have my narrator working on the audiobook right now, so it should be available around the same time as the ebook which releases on Sept. 26th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are a contemporary reader, I’ve decided to put the Small Town Sinners and Saints boxed set on kindle countdown. This includes the first FOUR full-length books of my 12 book Tarnished Saints Series. If you move quickly, you can pick it up for only 99 cents, but the price will go up every few days. Don’t forget the Tarnished Saints Christmas Series Prequel is always free on all venues. After you get it, treat yourself to the audiobook as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you are all enjoying the end of summer.

Summer Reading Specials!

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!

It is only a week away from the release of Highland Secrets – Book 1 of my Secrets of the Heart Series. You can still preorder it for the discounted price of $2.99 but just a warning, the price will be going up shortly after the release date of July 6th.

Cover Reveal, Contest & Free Book!

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.

 

Recollection: A Treasury of Assorted Poems is his third and last book for now. (Unless he starts writing more.) As a Father’s Day gift to you from my father, the book is FREE through the 21st. It is also available in print. Don’t miss his other two books, Reflections, and Squeaky the Squirrel.

Free book for the holiday, plus a contest!

I wish everyone a good Memorial Day weekend. It is very hot and muggy in the Chicagoland area. While I like hot weather, this is much too soon. Update on my granddog, Banshee, is that she is still a handful, but she is getting better each day. She has overcome her fear of going up stairs, and has found a new job patrolling the yard for birds, squirrels, and today she even saw a stray fox in the driveway! She is so cute, I just have to show you the latest photo of her. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since school will be out soon, I have decided to offer Teaching Philip – Book 8 of my Tarnished Saints Series for FREE from May 27 – 31. Philip Taylor is a teacher, experimenting with online dating, trying to find the perfect woman. When the new principal comes to town, he has no idea Taylor Phillips (who even has his name – but backwards) is there to take his job. Philip has a lot of quirks and is very clean. Taylor is messy. They are opposites and don’t get along. Think of this as an “Odd Couple.” Lots of laughs are in store when they find out they’ve been dating each other online and didn’t even know it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is also the last day, May 27th, to get Judging Judas – Book 3, for 99 cents.
