Nancy Morse: THE KINCAIDS – DALLAS

The Kincaids, Dallas, by Nancy MorseI’m very happy to feature Nancy Morse‘s latest release on my blog today. Nancy is an award-winning author of historical and contemporary romance novels. You can read the summary below of her latest release The Kincaids – Dallas. It grips you from the get-go.

SUMMARY

Dallas Kincaid was five years old when the Kiowa swept down from the Llano Estacado in the Texas Panhandle and carried him off. For 13 years he lived among them before joining Sam Houston’s volunteer army to fight for Texas independence, and later riding with the Texas Rangers against the powerful Comanche Nation that threatened settlements in the newly formed Republic of Texas. Now, with the fighting behind him, the battle-scarred loner torn between two cultures has returned to the homestead he last saw as a child, to the mother and older brother he left behind, to the younger brothers he didn’t know he had, and to the love he never expected to find.

Orphaned after her white father and Apache mother were killed in a Comanche raid, Abby McKenna lives a lonely life on the cattle ranch owned by her cantankerous grandfather and suffers his cold hostility for bearing the stigma of being a half-breed.

Dallas’s attraction to Abby is threatened by his struggle to define his own identity and by her grandfather’s prejudice which will not permit the attentions of a man raised by Indians, no matter how hard he fought for Texas independence, giving Dallas one more battle to fight before he can lay the painful past to rest.

Available at Amazon, along with many other great Nancy Morse books.

Synopsis:

High-spirited Boston society girl Rose Malloy has given her heart to no one. One day, one glance, one man changes all that. Climbing the rigging of the ship he’s building, and looking like a modern-day pirate, Finn Bennet spies the dark-haired beauty and pursues her.

Secretly wed yet abruptly losing the man of her dreams, Rose slips into private sorrow. That is, until British-born William Woodsom coaxes the light back into the sapphire blue eyes of the young woman who dazzled Boston’s elite before her inexplicable withdrawal three years earlier. He successfully captures her fragile heart.

When the past resurfaces, bringing intrigue and danger, Rose finds her world falling apart for the second time in her young life. Keeping secrets is no longer an amusing adventure. Can Rose prevent further heartache not only for herself but for the man she loves – or will her future be destroyed by an Inconceivable Deception?

Presenting Lady Gus

Cover of Presenting Lady GusThe tale of how Presenting Lady Gus came to be is this: I sat down and started writing what I thought was a medieval, but the characters were speaking in Georgian English. I put it aside after 30,000 words and basically forgot about it. That’s me!

A few months ago, when my fellow writers at LoveHistoricals.com needed another story for our latest boxed set, I really wanted to be in it. I was poking around my pc and there was the folder labeled “Augusta.” I quickly realized that I had been sorely mistaken and that this was much closer to a Regency than a medieval. Soon, the tale of Augusta and Rolf flowed, and with another 18,000 words written, the story practically finished itself. (Oh, there may have been some hair-pulling and brow-furrowing on my part.)

The Love Historicals boxed set is not out yet, but Presenting Lady Gus is.

Synopsis:

Augusta Brenville needs a husband, preferably a wealthy one, to save her beloved estate. Unfortunately, holding onto her inheritance seems impossible when nary a suitor remains standing, nor alive for that matter! That is until a seasoned captain arrives, daring and intrepid . . . and a tad uncivilized for the lady’s liking.

For the sake of owning Thornbury Castle, Captain Rolf is willing to marry its rather awkward yet endearing mistress, regardless of her penniless state. First, however, he must thwart an assassin with a penchant for poison, fire, and arrows. Can he keep both himself and his betrothed alive until their wedding day?

I love the cover created by Philip Ré of REX Video Productions. Even more so because the happy couple is standing in front of the real Thornbury Castle featured in their story.

Presenting Lady Gus is available at Smashwords by clicking below. Also available everywhere digital books are sold, including Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, and Barnes & Noble.

Another bit of publishing news, my new medieval romance, The Black Knight’s Reward, co-written with Marliss Melton, became available on Amazon this week.

the-black-knights-reward-8-f-jpegSynopsis: As the roaring flames engulf her, Merry du Boise struggles futilely against the binding ropes before relinquishing herself to her fate. Miraculously, a fearless warrior sweeps her from the stake and from certain death, placing her under his protection. However, as a nun condemned for heresy, with whispers of sorcery surrounding her, Merry’s problems have barely begun.

Luke, the king’s commander, has battled fire before and lived. Using his hard-earned moniker, the Phoenix, he has risen in the ranks of King Henry’s service with only one goal—to inherit his grandfather’s coveted estate of Arundel. Yet in the blink of an eye, rescuing a witch from the flames and stealing her away from the powerful Church have put his entire future in jeopardy!

Having vowed to protect the fiery-haired beauty, Luke realizes he wants to offer her more than merely his sword arm. Yet Merry has been betrayed before. As her dark past catches up with her, can she put her faith in an earthly savior who is torn between duty to his king and his own personal desires?

Currently, only available at Amazon in digital format, but soon, it will available everywhere in digital and in paperback.
