Scarred Hearts – A Steal at 99 Cents

Only through the weekend, my latest release, Scarred Hearts will be available at 99 cents at most retailers. Check it out:

Two wounded souls find salvation in each another.

At the close of WWI, moonshine and bootlegging rule the night in the Kentucky hills, but two damaged souls manage to find light and love amidst the darkness. Nearly destroyed by a grenade blast, Shadow Robeson returns home from war only to be trapped by family expectations he has no energy to fight—until a secret romance with a loving woman sets him on a new course.

Bound by poverty and a ruined reputation, Lettie Calloway seems destined to spend her days serving at the local tavern. It takes a kind and gentle man entering her life to expand her dreams to the horizon.

Shadow plans to escape the backwoods with Lettie for a new start, but his violent family threatens to destroy the fragile growth of new love. As the couple struggles toward freedom, will they escape this dangerous country before their lives explode?

In other news, here’s the cover for Summer and my March release, The Bohemian and the Banker, which you can preorder at Amazon or Samhain. I love the “warning” whipped up by the Samhain team.

  A night lost in Paris finds two hearts changed—forever.

Sent to Paris on business, Nigel Warren doesn’t quite understand why his colleagues’ eyes twinkle as they tell him to meet them at a local night spot.
When he discovers it’s a drag cabaret and his acquaintances aren’t there, he realizes he’s the butt of a joke. Yet he finds himself quite undone by a singer dressed in an elegant gown, crooning a spellbinding ballad.
It’s not unusual for Jay, a former Londoner, to bring a new “friend” home from the cabaret, but he’s never had a guest quite like Nigel, whose straitlaced manner hides an unexpected passionate streak.
One romantic night on a rooftop under starry skies, followed by an afternoon enjoying the excitement of the 1901 Paris Exposition, bonds these opposites in a way neither can forget—even after they part.
Their spark reignites when Jay comes to London, but he’s not sure he can go back to hiding his true self, not even for the sake of love…unless Nigel is willing to shed his cloak of staid respectability and take a leap of faith.
Warning: Contains a virgin who doesn’t speak French but is fluent in numbers, and a drag performer who is trilingual in English, French and Love. Not responsible for extra pounds brought on by the urge to dine on croissants au deux.

October Celebrations

The Walking Dead resumes this Sunday. Bring out yer dead!
Or bring them on, I should say.

I’m celebrating October–Halloween month, Walking Dead new season month–by rereleasing two classics of mine. After the End:
Zombies are on the loose and the world comes unraveled. A group of strangers on a Manhattan subway are brought together in the name of survival following the lead of Ari Brenner, a young man who represents authority because of his army uniform. Even though Ari doesn’t feel worthy of their trust, he steps up during the crisis as he’s been trained to do.

College student Lila Teske finds her non-violent beliefs tested in the crucible of a zombie attack as she takes her place fighting by Ari’s side. There are other members of the diverse group, but the focus of the story is on Lila and Ari, young people who learn about sacrifice, inner strength and even love during their ordeal.

With infrastructure down and communication with the outside world broken, the survivors head toward the nearest marina to escape New York. When they meet a lab tech who may know the key to defeating the virus, he must be protected at all costs. But the reanimated dead aren’t the only danger that impedes them on their perilous journey.

And Dead Country:
Zombie-fighting and romance. There’s room for both in Dead Country. Set in the same terrifying world as Bonnie Dee’s bestselling After the End, but following the adventures of new characters.

Mathematician Brian Pasman returns to his Kansas hometown just before the zombie apocalypse changes the world. Several months into the invasion, order is slowly being restored, but citizens of the tiny town are left to fend for themselves behind a ramshackle barricade.

Into Brian’s routine horror of zombie-killing rides a force of change on a Harley. Ashleigh Jennings once dreamed of a singing career but has survived in the world as a maid, waitress and exotic dancer. Her lively personality brings Brian back to life.

The motorcycle group’s arrogant leader clashes with the domineering head of the town council, but everyone must join forces when a new wave of the undead sweeps across the plains. Can Brian come up with a battle plan to save them all or is his education in probabilities only good in theory?

Mending Him is out and about

I have a file folder of story ideas that can sometimes sit for years before being used. Mending Him is one of those ideas that evolved in a different way than originally intended.

 I’ve always enjoyed stories concerning unwanted wards taken in by a family and raised as not quite an equal to the other children. I imagined a heroine with a club foot and awkward demeanor who expects to spend her entire life as a dependent of her wealthy family, making herself useful and finding what joy she can in her limited life–until the day another random cousin in the extended family comes to visit and romance blooms.

I brought up the premise to Summer with a little gender revision and a disability for the visiting relative that would give the pair something to connect over, and she was down with it. There’s a real sweetness to stalwart Robbie that makes a lovely counterpoint to overbearing, charming, livewire Charles. We hope readers enjoy the couple and the rest of their family. The other characters were fun to write too.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Just got back from a thousand mile trip, touring the edge of Lake Huron, Superior and all the way around our good ole Lake Michigan. Saw relatives in Wisconsin and took the ferry across to home. That’s a lot of riding for four days.

Along the way we saw many views like this:

And a whole lotta these: I did some work while I was riding though, working out in my head what writing project I should tackle next. What I came up with was a biker series. Go figure. Of course those hunky dudes in MC romance can’t hold a candle to the real middle-aged biker in my life:
