I have a new book coming soon- January 31, 2016- I hope- Regency romance. It’s called The Bachelor and the Dowager and here is the blurb:
<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”0; URL=/?_fb_noscript=1″ />
Banished to the dower house by her stepson who believes she is after his fortune, the Dowager Duchess of Whittington lives a lonely existence during her year of mourning. Missing her husband and forbidden by the new duke to travel to London and stay in the ducal residence, twenty-two year old Hannah Otto despairs of ever getting out of the countryside.
Bored and somewhat annoyed at the restrictions placed on her, Hannah makes plans to visit a friend in London shortly before her mourning period is over.
Before Hannah has a chance to finalize those plans, her butler notifies her of a man in her courtyard. A bleeding, unconscious man slumped over the back of a fine steed. Feeling sorry for him yet glad for some excitement, Hannah has him brought inside.
But when he appears to be a French spy, she realizes the enormity of what she’s done.

As a Christmas gift to my readers, my alter-ego is offering my short Christmas tale called The Thirteenth Gate free on Amazon through the 22nd.
From a review: “The Thirteenth Gate was a wonderful short story of one young girls journey to a better life. Clarissa thought there was no hope for her until Jed came into her life and let her see that all was not lost, just trust and believe! Great story for this Christmas season.”

This week’s word is Bar for Tuesday Tales. You know the drill- there’s a group of us writers who write to a word prompt each week. I’m still in the Christmas story I’ve been working on. The hero is torn between two women in this snippet- the girl he’s been dating who has flipped out on him and the girl he’s been friends with since childhood.
“We sure did and now I think we should check out the cookies. I’ve heard there are some pretty special ones to be had.”
Dana led the way to the other side of the room. He followed and admired the way her hips swayed as she walked. She seemed to have a different gait without the tool and gun belt she wore with her uniform.
He chose a couple of iced Santa head cookies from the bar full of all sorts of sweets and moved to watch the crowd as he munched on them. The band played Christmas songs he knew and remembered from childhood as well as some updated versions. He supposed he should ask Dana to dance but he didn’t want a scene with Carolyn.
When the thought of Carolyn popped in his head, he glanced around to see if he could spot her.
To his surprise, she was standing close and appeared to be arguing with some elderly woman. What was this about? Had she already been here long enough to make an enemy and if so, how?
Colin took a step toward them to see if he could help straighten out whatever was happening.
As he reached her side, the old woman said, “You can’t lie to me, Dearie. You look exactly like your mother. You must be old Henry Thornton’s daughter. You were young when you disappeared but I’d know you anywhere. Your mother was a beauty. I recall your daddy making her stay up there on his property because he was so afraid someone would steal her from him.” The old woman laughed, a bitter, ugly laugh. “She fooled him, though, didn’t she? Ran off in the middle of the night, didn’t she? Hustling her kids with her.”
Carolyn’s face reddened. She opened her mouth to say something but Colin took hold of her arm. “Come on, let’s go.”
She stared at him for a moment as if she didn’t recognize him but finally, she seemed to realize he was trying to help her. “Thanks. Yes, get me out of here. I should’ve known better than to come.”
Puzzled by Carolyn’s words, Colin decided to ask her about them later—once he got her out of the hall and somewhere quiet.

It’s out in the world! I love this story so much and hope readers do as well. BUY LINK
It’s 1938. Europe is on the brink of war as the madman Adolph Hitler is amassing an army to conquer the continent. The Führer is also in negotiations with Ambrose Schumacher, leader of a vampire coven, to recruit super-soldier vampires to fight for Germany. If he’s successful, Europe is lost.
Declan Cavanagh, a member of a secret society of vampire hunters, is on a mission to stop this evil alliance.
In his pursuit, Declan will be faced with many choices—some hard and some easy—and one even heartbreaking, but he knows he must persevere in order to try to bring some normalcy to a world caught up in chaos.
And if, along the way, he gets distracted by a number of attractive women, well, it’s just part of the job…or is it?
