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?

Defiant Hearts Boxed Set Hits Amazon #1

Doing a little bragging this Friday morning. I’m excited to learn that my boxed set of Defiant Hearts books (prequel and books 1 and 2) hit #1 on Amazon last night.

It’s now labeled a “best seller.”

Defiant Hearts best seller list

If you don’t have it already, it’s one of those temporary sales by my publisher, at the low, low price of 99 cents! Contains An Intriguing Proposition, An Improper Situation, and An Irresistible Temptation.

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.

A Video Featuring the Defiant Hearts Series and a Dog

Video stillshot1

I have two new things today: 1) a video made by REX Video Productions featuring my DEFIANT HEARTS series and the new series, the WARRIORS OF YORK, that I’m writing with bestselling author Marliss Melton and 2) my own YouTube channel with exactly one video (see #1).

If you have less than a minute, and nothing better to do, you can take a look at the video by clicking here. My slightly overweight pooch, Perry the Wonder Dog, made the final cut!

I enjoyed seeing the process of how such a mini-film is made; it all starts with the script! Then you get to go into a studio and do the voiceover narration. Finally, the video is made, with the cinematographer matching clips and images to the script.
