The Christmas Wishes Series is Complete!

With the release of Rebellious Angel, the Christmas Wishes series is complete! Six fantastic Christmas stories from six different eras by six amazing authors, what could be better?

I just have to say that I am so happy that Dawn asked me to be in this series. A Christmas Reunion is my first holiday book, and my first Tudor as well, and I had a ton of fun researching and writing it. I’d love to do another one, maybe sticking with the Welsh folklore and writing about the Mari Lywd?

If you missed one of these fantastic books, you can still buy them everywhere!

The Magic of Gingerbread: Christmas Wishes Book 5

SS_The Magic of Gingerbread_HiResSandra Sookoo has written an amazing number of books…75 at last count! I wish I had her time management skills, and hope to reach that number some day. This is her Christmas Wishes story, and it promises to be just as addicting as the rest!

In 1888 London, Miss Eleanor Redding, possessed of a beastly, grouchy attitude, works for Western Union Telegraph Company. It gives her a certain independence and a place to hide from her disappointing past in America. When she accidentally intercepts a Morse-coded message alluding to clandestine and nefarious activity, she accepts the challenge with alacrity. It will take her mind off the fact she’s once more alone for the Christmas holidays. Why couldn’t a man look past her prickles and scars to fight for her?

Mr. Cameron Hallewell, grandson of the Earl of Albemarle, is employed by the Home Office in the matters of foreign interests. He takes his occupation of protecting British interests seriously, but he longs for a woman to surprise him in unexpected ways, to want him instead of his social standing. When there’s news of a foreign operative lurking about Victoria Station planning something vile, he intends to track them down… only to find an attractive woman tailing various strangers on the platform and looking for all the world like a spy herself.

They get on together like oil and water, but despite Eleanor’s prickles and Cameron’s bruised heart as well as his secrets, a spark catches between them. As the unlikely pair work together to capture a spy and prevent harm from befalling London, they come to care for and rely on each other. Throw in the intriguing prospect of an unexpected Christmas courtship, and they could have a romance that spans the ages… if they’ll only let themselves give into granted wishes and a passion that’s been there all along.

Next week, the final Christmas Wishes book comes out! It’s still available to preorder for $0.99, at all your favorite online retailers!

The Appeal of an Elusive Viscount: Christmas Wishes Book 3

HM_The Appeal of an Elusive Viscount_HiResIf you’ve read A Christmas Reunion, you’ll have had a taste of Hildie McQueen’s The Appeal of an Elusive Viscount, and that little bit was enough to convince me that I wanted to snap up a copy for myself!

Viscount William Torrington bends to his family’s wishes and agrees to spend the Christmas season in London society. Once he finds a woman to sire his children, he plans to marry her, get her with child and return to his country estate, alone. When William meets a young woman, who’s snuck into a gentleman’s club, she piques his interest enough to consider her as a possible wife. However, he wishes for a meek wife and she seems anything but.

After kissing a dark stranger in exchange for his silence, Clara Humphries tries her best to push the incident out of her mind. Her one wish for Christmas is for her sweet sister to find a good husband. Upon hearing a very eligible viscount is in London for the season, Clara decides that he would be a great match for her sister. Her plans go awry when it turns out to be the same person she kissed.

The appeal of the viscount is impossible to ignore, however Clara vows to fight becoming an abandoned wife. At the same time, William is having second thoughts about his solitary life plan.

Check back next week for another Christmas Wishes novel! There are still 3 more books releasing in the next month, all in different eras, and all with preorders under a dollar!

Climbing the Ranks

This year has been bonkers for me, writing-wise, and the hits keep coming.

I released The Search for Sam in September to moderate success – top 100 for the first time ever! Then I had my very first book signing in October and sold several books! Now this has happened and it’s blowing my mind.

I was so excited about being #1 in New Releases that it barely occurred to look at the main Tudor Historical Romance list, but when I did I got a huge surprise this morning when I woke up. I was excited about top 20 last night and woke up to #4. I’ve basically been losing it all day.

On top of that, I’m still at #1 in New Releases at the time of this writing. I’ve slipped down the general list but I’m holding firmly on to New Releases. I can’t help but hope that the next book will bring me closer to #1 on the bestseller list.

if you want to read it, it’s on sale for $0.99 for a limited time. After next Tuesday it goes up to $2.99, so this is your chance!

I’m Number WHAT?

Last night I was up until midnight for completely non-writing-related reasons and decided to meander over to Amazon as soon as I got my email that A Christmas Reunion was live. I was not at all expecting what I found.

My book debuted at #1 in Tudor Historical Romance! I really thought I was going to pass out. I never dreamed that one of my books would be #1 in anything, not by a long shot!

I had to sit for a minute and think about things. When I first got the idea to write a historical romance novel, I submitted it to Harlequin because of course I did. Also I had submitted a contemporary to them a long time ago, which is another story entirely. They didn’t even send a reply, just a photocopy of their submission guidelines. I tried unsuccessfully to get an agent, then find a small publisher, which worked out twice until both of them closed and I was on my own.

When I made the decision to start self-publishing my own books, I knew there was a better than average chance I wouldn’t make more than a couple of bucks. Now I’ve had a book signing, one book reached the top 100 on Amazon, and another debuted at #1. Not to mention The Search for Sam getting shortlisted for a prize. I’m not sure how I got here but it can only go up.

As of the time I’m writing this, I am sitting at #2 in the new releases but for a brief shining moment I had the coveted orange flag and I can’t think of a better Christmas gift from the universe.
