Hello, and greetings from my writing hammock in my secret garden where I am working on my next release, Trucker Daddy! Now that the sun is out and the days are nicer, I decided I wanted to do something special for my readers so you will always have an affordable book to read all summer long!
Welcome to my Super Summer Specials where I will be offering one of my books on kindle countdown for 99c each week starting today, and going throughout the summer. The books will go on sale each Monday thru Sunday. Each week I will also be posting a fun summer recipe or a tip or tidbit of information, relating to the book on special.
That said, I’m going to kick off the Super Summer Specials with one of my all-time favorite books, Saving Simon – Book 5 of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series.
My hero, Simon Taylor is one of 12 brothers. He is an ex-navy officer and now a security officer aboard a cruise ship. When he saves Piper Westbrook who gets knocked overboard, he never dreams he’d end up being attracted to the woman. Then again, neither does he expect her to show up in his little hometown of Sweetwater, Michigan, threatening to close down the mariner that is such a big part of his life!
This book was inspired by my husband’s love of water and sailing. I, on the other hand, am more like Piper and don’t care that much for the water. Doing research for the story, I learned to sail with my husband, and in doing so discovered the magic of gliding over the water and life on the docks.
Growing up visiting my grandparents in Michigan I often spent time at the lake where they lived, and this entire series is based on places, people, and things from my own life. At the end of each story I tell a personal experience that ended up getting written into my book. In Saving Simon, Simon takes Piper peach picking in the orchards (another thing I did in my life.) In each book my hero and heroine makes a quick easy meal and all the recipes are on my website. One of my favorites is what Piper (or Pippa as Simon calls her) makes for him – Grilled spiced peaches with vanilla bean ice cream and fresh mint. Click HERE to see the recipe.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Saving Simon, and experience a sail boat race and life on the water as Simon and Piper fall in love. It is only 99c on kindle countdown from now thru Sunday, June 6th. (If you belong to Kindle Unlimited you can read the entire series for free.) Also, watch for the audiobook of Doubting Thomas – Book 1 to be released sometime next month.
