It's a holiday sale!

Hello, everyone! 

Here in the US we're all celebrating the 4th of July with summer fun events...cookouts, days at the lake, and for me that means....lots of reading. 

For those of you that don't know, my original series is about a military-oriented family, the Robertson's. And on this weekend when we celebrate our freedoms, I thought it would be fun to put the Robertson's stories on a special bundle sale.

For this weekend, the price on this bundle will be 
only $2.99

This is a special, limited-time release of the When the Mission Ends trilogy e-book bundle... (3 full-length books + 1 novella).

Series Overview:
The military has always been a way of life for the three Robertson siblings: older brother, Colton and twins, Chris and Cassie. Colton and Chris went into the Air Force as pilots and Cassie is a military history professor at Texas Tech University. But when Chris’s jet is shot down in a horrible mission gone wrong, it throws their entire world into disarray—affecting not only their lives, but also the lives of their friends.
What happens after that mission ends and they have to find a new focus for living?

Operation: Endgame
It’s been six months.
Six months since Jake Madsen let Chris Robertson die.
Six months since the passion between Jake and Cassie, Chris’ sister, stepped over the line.
But now Cassie’s being stalked and it’s time for Jake to swallow his guilt, grief, and lust so he can save her life, even if it’s a life without him. He owes it to his dead friend and he owes it to Cassie. He’s fallen in love with her, but she doesn’t have to know that for him to keep her safe.

Operation: Endeavor
Colton Robertson left his career in the Air Force…
… to come home and help his family heal. Unfortunately, his reception was not quite what he’d hoped for and he ended up as roommate to hippy dippy yoga instructor Penelope Pruitt.
Penelope has spent her life under the restrictive thumb of her parents and she doesn’t want to do the same with the straight-laced, serious Colton. But when it becomes apparent that Penelope’s life is in danger, Colton won’t settle for anyone else protecting Penelope besides him.
Opposites attract and that’s definitely the case with Colton and Penelope. On the surface, they don’t have anything in common, but as the sparks fly and the danger ramps up, their passion is inevitable.

Operation: Endurance
They had a single night of passion before he deployed on a risky mission.
18 hours on a mission gone very wrong was all it took to shatter all their hopes and dreams.
The hero:
He survived 6 months of captivity and torture, kept alive by dreams of her.
The heroine:
She thought he was dead and moved on only to have her world fall apart once again.
Two people who have been hurt more than any two people should ever have to suffer. Can they find redemption and healing with each other or will another threat shatter what’s left of them?
A tortured hero.
A grieving heroine.
A serial rapist who won’t give up.
Warning: This book features graphic sexual violence which some readers could find disturbing.

Before the Mission Begins (read between Op:Endeavor and Op:Endurance)
Before his mission began, he went home. 24 hours to say goodbye to his twin sister.
Instead he found her. A girl that was nothing like the one he thought he knew.
They have 24 hours. 24 hours before he deploys on an extremely dangerous mission. 24 hours together in a freak West Texas snowstorm. 24 hours that will have to get them both through the awful next year.
When the resident good-girl decides to take on the visiting bad-boy, 24 hours is all it takes to change their lives forever.
This is the story of the 24 hours that no one knew ever occurred…until now.

The book is also available in print, but it's a BIG book that way...But that makes it a great bargain. The retail on the print is $20.99, but right now Amazon has it priced at $15.94.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Happy Reading!

Favorite Books so far in 2015...

We're six months into the year. 
I don't know if you all know this, but I'm a HUGE reader. 
In fact, I have a book review blog...Smitten with Reading.

And I know that this is my author blog right now, but I thought it might be fun for you, my readers, to see what I read and loved.

So far this year I've read 195 books. 
17 have made it to my favorites list.

So here is the list...the books I've read in 2015 that I've thought are far.

(I'm listing these in order of how I've read them.)
1. Trade Me by Courtney Milan
contemporary romance

2. We Found Love by Kade Boehme and Allison Cassatta
male/male contemporary romance

3. The Truth As He Knows It by A.M. Arthur
male/male contemporary romance

4. Game Play by Lynda Aicher
contemporary romance - sports

5. Garrett by Sawyer Bennett
contemporary romance - sports

6. Black John by Amy Lane
male/male contemporary romance

7. The Trouble with Love by Lauren Layne

8. The Risk by Skye Jordan

9. This Heart of Mine by Brenda Novak

10. Since Drew by J. Nathan

Hmm, interesting. 
Of the 17 books I've loved so far this year:
*12 were contemporary romance
*6 were male/male romance
*6 were within the sports themed genre

Maybe for my next book, I should write a male/male contemporary romance set in the sports world. Hmm, something to consider. hehe.


Not that I don't have enough keeping me busy. 

Just so you know, right now I'm writing two books at once. 
They're both *supposed* to be novellas, but honestly, they're looking like they'll be full-length novels.
1. Intertwined Hearts - menage story set within the Snowcroft World
2. Josh & KC (needs a better name) - m/m set within the Martin Ranch World

And I'm editing and prepping two books to go out to betas...
1. Right By Your Side - first Martin Ranch book (m/f full-length romantic suspense - new series which is a spinoff from When the Mission Ends series)
2. Found At the Library - 55,000 word male/male stand alone novel - Christmas story.
