Exciting News & Another Summer Special

Hi everyone! Exciting news. BOTH Tristan and Highland Steel have made it through to the finals of the RONE Awards. I am thrilled and want to thank each and every one of you who have taken the time to vote. Now, fingers crossed, hopefully at least one of my book boys will win this prestigious award.

 

Now, on to the weekly 99c Summer Special. This week you can pick up Thief of Olympus from my Greek Myth Series on kindle countdown for only 99c. (KU reads the entire series free.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This series was one of the first I ever wrote, and inspired by Xena and Hercules tv shows from the late 1990s. Lysandra is an Amazon warrior princess who has come of age and is paired up with King Zarek, hoping she can conceive a girl baby. But when the baby is born and stolen by the goddess Artemis, Zarek and Lysandra are pitted against each other and must steal back from the gods the most precious gift of all.

Be sure to pick up the other books of the series, Kyros’ Secret, The Oracle of Delphi and The Pandora Curse. Each book features gods, goddesses, mythical creatures, magic, and strong heroines and brave heroes.

One last message, Doubting Thomas is now available in audiobook form. I am so excited to finally start getting my favorite series of all time into audio. Watch for more of the Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series coming to audio soon.

Until next time – Elizabeth Rose

Super Summer Specials!

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.

Check back on my website each Monday for the new Summer Special. Be sure to sign up for my blog on the top right of my website to get the updates each week. Or you can stop by my facebook author page where I will post the specials and recipes as well.

Happy Sailing!

Some bittersweet news: My parents are moving back from Michigan to Illinois. The good part is that they will be closer to me. The bitter part is that my siblings and I will all miss Michigan and the lake where my grandparents and then parents used to live and where we grew up vacationing in the summer. Through the years, my family has BUILT two houses there, and it is also the inspiration for my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This series was inspired by people, places, and events in my life, focussed around the lake and small town in Michigan. If you read Book 1, Doubting Thomas, the bed and breakfast is my parents’ house. (My parents were my inspiration for creating the old couple who own it, but don’t tell them!) Levi’s house, right across the channel of water from his brother, was really my grandparents’ house. And Thunder Lake (fictional name in the book) is featured in all the stories as well. I’ll be talking more about my inspiration for the 12 Taylor brothers and their surroundings this weekend, so watch for my live video on facebook!

In the meantime, to celebrate this special place and time in my life, I’ve decided to offer Books 1-5 of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series on kindle countdown (US & UK) for only 99 cents through the 14th. This set is normally $9.99, so don’t miss this deal. Find out all about the Taylor brothers, Thomas, Levi, Judas, Zeb and Simon for only 99c. I guarantee you will want to read about the rest of the brothers, James, Pete, Philip, John, Andrew, Nate and Thad as well. Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble. (KU reads entire series free.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to also pick up the FREE prequel to the series, Tarnished Saints’ Christmas, to learn about the men as boys and what paved the road to their stories. (Audiobook only $5.95 afterwards.)

And don’t forget this is the last day (the 8th) to get Forgotten Secrets: Book 4, Secrets of the Heart Series for only 99c! This is one of my FAVORITE books, and also a RONE Award nominee from InD’tale magazine this year. If you’d like to vote for it to help the book make it to the finals, you can do so thru the 10th at InD’tale magazine by clicking HERE. I appreciate each and every vote. My dream is to actually WIN this award this year.

Stay safe and healthy and I’ll be getting back to the writing hammock and my secret garden soon.

A Call of the Wild

This weekend starts the Iditarod – the annual trail sled dog racing competition in Alaska that lasts up to a week or more. With that and also the Call of the Wild movie being released, I thought I’d jump into the ring and offer my sled dog racing book, Loving John for FREE from March 7th – 11th.
John Taylor’s dream is to run the Iditarod with his team of sled dogs. But when an accident occurs and he injures his leg, he is forced to return to his hometown of Sweetwater instead. There he meets the beautiful divorced doctor, Addey and her troublesome son who need him in their lives as much as John needs his dogs. But can a man with the call of the wild in his heart put down roots when all he wants to do is run?

Loving John is Book 9 in my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series, but these are all stand alone books and can be read in any order. If you’d like to learn more about the Iditarod, here are a few links that I hope you’ll enjoy: Click HERE and HERE.

(US & UK) And don’t forget Book 1 – Doubting Thomas is always 99c, and the series prequel – Tarnished Saints’ Christmas is FREE!

I’m excited to tell you that May Queen: May Day – Book 3 of my Holiday Knights Series is now available as an audiobook. My UK narrator, Kevin E. Green does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. This book centers around the ancient traditions of May Day, and you’ll learn how it all got started. In my Holiday Knights series, each book features the origins of a holiday, most of them starting back in medieval times or even earlier. Watch for more Holiday Knights coming soon. You can purchase the audiobook of May Queen or listen to a sample HERE. I am also giving away a copy of the audiobook along with a $10 amazon gift card.

It’s called Medieval Knights and Warriors and has a collection of six full-length books in a boxed set for the low price of $5.99. This is Volume 2 of my series starter collection.
