Another special

I have another BookBub special sale coming up.

Between September  22 and Sept 29,  THE ACCIDENTAL WEDDING will be priced  at $1.99 (normally $6.99) . Make sure you check the price before you buy, as not all e-book retailers get the reduced price up at the same time.

I’m telling you ahead of time in the hope that this blog will be emailed to you in time for you to get the special. I don’t control when the blog gets sent — it’s an algorithm that decides, not me. <g>

The best way to be reminded of my BookBub specials is to go to this site, and click on FOLLOW (the red button beside my name.) Then you’ll get an email every time one of my books is offered at a reduced price.

Another way to get reminded of a new release is to follow me on Amazon, which you can do by clicking this link and then clicking on FOLLOW.

THE ACCIDENTAL WEDDING has one of my all time favorite covers. The earlier covers in that series were really disappointing, but my editor at the time was not a cover person. However this time, the actual publisher (a person, not a company) took an interest in my books after meeting me at a conference in the USA, and I suddenly got this spectacular cover with the most beautiful bride dress. I nearly wept with gratitude.
If you click on the amazon link, and then run your cursor over the cover image, you will see what I mean. Even the texture of the lace is visible. (I actually patted that cover when the paperbacks arrived, as you could feel the pattern of the lace.)

I also loved the story. I’ll post some more information about the book later.

You can buy The Accidental Wedding from these e-book sellers: Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Apple, Kobo, or click on this link for your favorite e-book retailer.



A BookBub Special

The e-book of  THE RAKE’S DAUGHTER will be on special in the USA selling for $1.99 between August 21 and August 28.

This is the story of Izzy,  a bold and outspoken young woman who, along with her legitimate sister,  is determined not to let her illegitimacy stand in the way of her happiness. The full story description is beneath the image below.
You can buy it from  amazon, Barnes&Noble,  Kobo, and other e-book retailers,  BUT the reduced price won’t operate until August 21st.

An earl is forced to play matchmaker for the daughters of a rake in a smart and witty new Regency romance from the national bestselling author of The Scoundrel’s Daughter.

Recently returned to England, Leo, the new Earl of Salcott, discovers he’s been thrust into the role of guardian to an heiress, the daughter of a notorious rake. Even worse, his wealthy ward has brought her half-sister, the beautiful but penniless Isobel, with her. Leo must find Clarissa a suitable husband, but her illegitimate half sister, Izzy, is quite another matter. Her lowly birth makes her quite unacceptable in London’s aristocratic circles.

However, the girls are devoted to each other and despite the risk of scandal if Izzy’s parentage is discovered, they refuse to be separated. To Leo’s frustration, nothing will convince them otherwise. Even worse, sparks fly every time Leo and Izzy interact.

Called away to his country estate, Leo instructs the young ladies to stay quietly at home. But when he returns, he’s infuriated to discover that Izzy and Clarissa have launched themselves into society — with tremendous success! There’s no going back. Now Leo must enter society to protect Clarissa from fortune hunters, and try not to be driven mad by the sharp-witted, rebellious, and intoxicating Izzy.

More about the Perfect Kiss

Just a reminder — from 3rd June to 9th June the e-book of THE PERFECT KISS is on a Bookbub special, costing $1.99 instead of the usual price of $7.99

If you’d like to read an excerpt of THE PERFECT KISS  click here. It’s the hero and heroine’s first meeting.

And if you’d like to see some of the images that helped inspire the story click here. And see the snippet below.

The stairs
I’d written about the stairs with the dips made by generation of feet long before I found this image on the web.

One of the primary schools I attended as a child was quite old — one of the earliest built in Victoria, my state — and I was fascinated to see the dips in the steps made by generations of children climbing them.

It gave me a small thrill each time I fitted my feet into those dips, thinking of children more than a hundred years ago doing the very same thing. So I put them in THE PERFECT KISS and much later was thrilled to see this image of a cathedral with the same sort of worn stone steps.

I have a newsletter coming out in the next day or so. If you want it, make sure you subscribe to it on my website. (it’s at the top)
