With Thanksgiving looming, I’d like to remind you that Celebrate Romance–the delightful 5-author/5-holidays anthology is available at Amazon, BN, iTunes and KOBO. USA-Today author Barbara McMahon’s sweet novella, Love With All The Trimmings, will get you in the mood for Thanksgiving. I promise.
My short holiday novella is now live. I plan to make it free to show my appreciation to all my valued readers, friends and fans, but, alas, there’s a process! If you’re anxious to read it and can’t wait for it to go free, here’s the link to AMAZON. It will be 99¢ until everybody decides to play nice.
This marvelous cover is the work of my very talented friend, Rogenna Brewer. (She did the Celebrate Romance covers, too — a new one for every holiday!) Ro’s got a great sale going this month. If you’re looking for a cover for your brilliant NaNoWriMo piece, check out SWEETTOHEAT.
I just turned in NOBODY’S DARLING, book #3 in my Big Sky Mavericks series.
(Note: since COWGIRL COME HOME introduced the Zabrinski family, Tule Publishing has decided to brand it as Big Sky Mavericks #1, so readers won’t be confused or think they’re missing part of the series. Thank you, Tule!)
Have you read the first two? #3 will be out January 9, 2015.
Book 2 – Big Sky Mavericks
Austen Zabrinski looks the part –
He’s got the ranch, the boots, the hat and even a few head of cattle, but everybody in Marietta, Montana, knows the former golden boy of Marietta High is a wealthy politician, not a cowboy. And even though that nasty scandal in Helena might have knocked him down a notch or two in the polls, what kind of a fool would trade access to the halls of power in Helena and a Harvard law degree for a ranch in western Montana? Possibly one whose new neighbor, Serena James–the woman the guys at Grey’s Saloon call “…the Red Hot Llama Mama”–makes him start to think about what he wants out of life, instead of what’s expected of him.
Serena James knows trouble when it hops her fence–
Moving to Montana and deleting her blog seemed like the perfect solution to her online stalker problem. Serena’s ready for a fresh start, but when the escrow on her ranch falls through, she has to scramble to find an immediate but temporary safe haven to rent for her herd of 50 alpacas, two llamas and one giant dog. Serena’s barely moved in when Austen Zabrinski–the man her landlord called “my absentee ranch owner brother who lives and works in Helena”–hops the fence in need of a lift. Even at first glance, Serena can tell he’s nobody cowboy, but who’s to say that isn’t a good thing? A little tryst with her gorgeous, sexy, here-today-gone-to-Helena-tomorrow neighbor might be the perfect welcome to Montana.
Big Sky Mavericks #1
Some dreams come with a big price tag.
Bailey Jenkins left her hometown of Marietta, Montana, at eighteen, poised to take college and the rodeo world by storm–despite Paul Zabrinski. On the eve of her great escape, at the top of the Ferris Wheel at the Big Marietta Fair, he invoked his Gypsy great-grandmother’s curse. “If you do this, Bailey Jenkins, I will never forgive you.” Fifteen years later, Bailey’s back–shattered, humbled by fate and bruised at the soul level but determined to rebuild somewhere other than Marietta, once she helps her parents get back on their feet. She didn’t expect Paul Zabrinski to meet her plane. The handsome, sexy, single father is living the life she could have had if she’d stayed. Bailey didn’t need Paul’s great-grandmother to curse her–Bailey already had the worst luck on the planet.
Never say never.
One look at Bailey Jenkins–his first love, the woman he adored…and cursed–and every emotion Paul Zabrinski felt fifteen years earlier comes rushing back. The love of his life broke his heart and made him hate her…or so he thought. The line between love and hate is very narrow, with only so much room for forgiveness. But Paul Zabrinski owns Big Z Hardware and Construction. If anyone is capable of building a bridge for them to cross together, he’s the one.
