The Bride Price is now Available!

This is Book 1 in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series.

the-bride-price-final-ebook-cover

This is the first book in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. So far, I know I’m doing two more books, one of which I’ll mention later in this post.

The Bride Price is about a man who rescues a deceived mail-order bride from an auction, and as a result a thief demands payment for her. It’s up to him to outwit the thief if he doesn’t want to lose her. This is Sep’s story. Sep was the 14-year-old brother-in-law to Joel Larson in Shotgun Groom. It was nice to finally give him his own story!

Married In Haste is Done!

I plan to have this out at the end of December

It is Book 2 in the Marriage by Fate Series. Book 1 in this series is The Reclusive Earl.  I’ll mention what I’m doing for Book 3 in a moment.

Married In Haste ebook cover

Pre-order now!

This one was so much fun to write!  It wasn’t a comedy, like I was hoping, BUT I was able to get the ball rolling on a subplot I’ve been developing since I wrote The Viscount’s Runaway Bride. (Yep, sometimes it takes me that long to start resolving a side issue I introduce in an earlier book or series. This is why writing a series is so much fun for me. In this case, since all of the Regencies are in the same world, I can weave subplots between series.)

One thing I’ve been wanting to do for a long time (specifically since I wrote A Most Unsuitable Earl) was to have a hero who went to his wife’s bedchamber on his wedding night, got cold feet, and hightailed it right back to his bedchamber. I know. It’s probably mean for an author to do that to her poor character, but I kind of like it when the man isn’t 100% confident about his first time. (And as you probably know by now, I love writing virgin heroes. I don’t always have virgin heroes, but those are my favorite types to write because I love exploring how they approach sex and how they are changed because of it. I think it deepens the romance.) Don’t worry. The hero in this book does gain confidence before it ended. I didn’t leave the poor guy in that state of fear forever. 🙂

I am 1/4 of the way into The Rejected Groom

This is Book 2 in the Misled Mail Order Bride Series, and it is Anthony (aka Tony) Larson’s story. Tony Larson is one of the twin brothers of Richard and Amanda Larson. I have June 2 marked for a release date, but I expect to have it out in February.

The Rejected Groom Ebook Cover

Pre-order now!

I’m really enjoying this one! Mark (Tony’s twin brother) is a bit of a mischievous character. He sets it up so that the wrong woman marries Tony. Now, Tony wants to marry her, but she doesn’t want to marry Tony because Tony doesn’t have a lot of money. She is a bit of a snob, which I’ll work out during the course of the story. She will learn that being a farmer is hard work, and she’ll come to respect Tony for all he does.

But she grew up in a life of luxury, so she doesn’t know the first thing about cooking or sewing. She is going to have to learn to do those things, and it won’t be easy for her. (By the way, she actually does like Tony more than she likes Mark. She’s just letting the logical part of her brain prevent her from listening to her heart.)

I’ll start Make Believe Bride this week

This is Book 3 in the Marriage by Fate Series.

make believe bride

I really liked Lord Whitney when I introduced him in The Reclusive Earl (Book 1 in this series). He was presented as a very boring gentleman who only read books all the time. I felt that he would make a good hero, and I’m happy to be picking him for this one. In order to fit in with the other gentlemen, he makes up a betrothal. He notices that most gentlemen have wives, and he thinks if he makes up a bride, then he’ll have something in common with the other gentlemen. The truth of the matter is, he’s lonely, and he really wants to have friends. He just doesn’t know how to make himself interesting enough to attract people to him.

After serious debate, I paired him up with Lady Stacey, who is a member of Ladies of Grace. She has a compelling backstory that will make her the perfect match for Lord Whitney. When it comes to fixing up certain characters, I always look for something that will make them the best fit for each other. For example, Celia in Taming The Viscountess needed someone strong like Sebastian in order to be happy. Likewise, Candace in If It Takes A Scandal needed someone softer and proper like Corin in order to be happy. If I had fixed Celia and Corin up (as my original thought had been), then that story wouldn’t have been very good. By giving these characters to other people, I got two stories that I enjoy a lot. And I figure if I enjoy the story, then you will, too.

Speaking of enjoying stories, I should mention this now before I forget.

I put Wanted: Mail Order Husband on hold

Wanted Mail Order Husband ebook cover

Somewhere along the course of writing in this one, the story veered off track. I don’t know why. It began to become a chore to write. If I push through that, I’ll be writing a story that won’t be worth reading. I want to make each book the best it can be so it’s worth the price I ask for it. I don’t want to disappoint you guys because you’ve been with me for years. It’s because of you, I had the encouragement I needed to keep going when times got tough. I do plan to go back to this. I think I’m probably going to scrap about 10,000 words. But when I figure out the direction I need to go, then it’ll be a lot better than it is now.

The cover, however, turned out great, so I’ll be keeping it. 🙂

I’ll be starting The Marriage Contract this week.

This will be Book 1 in a brand new Regency series called Marriage by Fairytale.

The Marriage Contract Ebook Cover

As soon as I finished Married In Haste, I wanted to start Stephen’s book. Stephen is Brad’s younger brother. Brad is the hero in Married In Haste. Stephen is his wayward brother. If you read The Rake’s Vow, you’ll know what kind of character he was. He was basically irresponsible, selfish, and mocked others. I am giving him what’s due to him in Married In Haste and Make Believe Bride. So don’t worry. He is going to reap what he’s sown. But I saw something inside of him during Married In Haste that let me know he is redeemable. If a character has any redemptive qualities, I will give them their second chance. I think those characters are the most interesting to work with because I love seeing how they mature.

The Marriage Contract will take place five years after Married In Haste. That will give Stephen enough time to suffer, and because of the suffering, he’ll mature. The Marriage Contract is his romance where he gets a second chance. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil Married In Haste. I can give more details after Married In Haste is out.

I hope everyone has a great November!

October 2017 Newsletter

The Bride Price is due out later this month.

the-bride-price-final-ebook-cover

I still haven’t set a release date. I’m waiting on my last proofreader to get the book back to me.  From there, I’ll pick the date.  I’ll make a special post on this blog when it’s available. Right now the date is set in November, but I know it’ll be out before then.

This is Sep’s story. (Sep was Joel Larson’s younger brother-in-law in Shotgun Groom.)

This book is the first one in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. Here are the books I have planned for it:

  • Book 1: The Bride Price
  • Book 2: The Rejected Groom
  • Book 3: The Perfect Wife

Almost done with Married In Haste

Married In Haste ebook cover

Married In Haste is the long anticipated book in the Marriage by Fate Series.  Book 1 is The Reclusive Earl. Book 2 is Married In Haste. Book 3 is going to be Make Believe Bride. I plan to do a Book 4, but I haven’t come up with a title for it yet.

This book features Miss Ava Baynes and Brad Bachman, Earl of Youngtown. I introduced Ava in The Reclusive Earl, and I introduced Brad in The Rake’s Vow. He was Loretta’s older brother.

I am hoping to have this out at the very end of December. *fingers crossed*

I’m about 4 chapters into The Rejected Groom

The Rejected Groom Ebook Cover

I’m really enjoying this one. I suspect it’ll be my favorite in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. This will be Anthony (aka Tony) Larson’s romance. Tony Larson is one of the twin sons that Amanda and Richard Larson had.

I’m in Chapter 7 of Wanted: Mail Order Husband

COVER COMING SOON

This book starts the Fort Benton Series. I’m at the point in the book where I’m not sure where to go next, so I’ve been focusing on the other stories instead. I don’t want to take the story off the right course.  I want this to be worth reading, so I’m just taking it slow for now on this one.

I think I’ll end it there for this month. There’s really not much else to report, and I don’t want to repeat all the stuff I did last month. 🙂

 

I hope everyone has a great October!

If It Takes A Scandal (Marriage by Bargain: Book 4) is now available!

if it takes a scandal ebook cover

I’m happy to say that the Marriage by Bargain Series is now complete.  So if you like to wait until the whole series is done before you start reading it, here’s a list of the books in this series for easy reference:

  • Book 1: The Viscount’s Runaway Bride
  • Book 2: The Rake’s Vow
  • Book 3: Taming The Viscountess
  • Book 4: If It Takes A Scandal

Since this is going to be a long post, I’m just going to give the quick description:

Two people who don’t want to get married end up having to when a third party gets them ensnared in a scandal. A year later, both have to come to grips with the reality of their very inconvenient marriage.

Here’s where you can find it:

One of my beta readers had pointed out that since Jason and Anna (the heroine’s friends in If It Takes A Scandal) are featured in Her Counterfeit Husband, that I should let others know.  So, in case, anyone hasn’t read Anna and Jason’s story but would like to, here’s the information for that book…

Her Counterfeit Husband new cover

Here’s the description:

A conspiring duchess. An amnesiac doppelgänger. Can hearts be true in the midst of double deception?

Anna feels little anguish when she sees the dead body of her husband. The young widow has no plans to mourn over the cruel Duke of Watkins, but she knows that his untimely death will put her at the mercy of his malicious younger brother. With help from her loyal butler, Anna smuggles away the body in the dead of night…

Anna hopes to keep her husband’s death a secret until she’s settled far from the reach of her spiteful brother-in-law. When she stumbles upon an unconscious, wounded man who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Duke, she wonders if she’s found the solution to all their problems. The stranger wakes up with no memories of his life, and Anna wastes no time convincing him of the lie…

As her husband’s doppelgänger begins to treat her like true royalty, Anna succumbs to his affections. Just when she thinks the charade is in the clear, the truth bubbles to the surface. Can Anna convince the amnesiac of her love before losing her husband a second time?

Her Counterfeit Husband is an enthralling Regency romance. If you like steamy sex scenes, suspenseful twists, and sizzling chemistry, then you’ll love Ruth Ann Nordin’s duplicitous tale.

Please note: I had the cover and description updated recently, so it may seem like a new book, but it isn’t.  This has been out since 2012.  Please make sure you don’t already own it before you try to purchase it.  (I notice Barnes & Noble and Kobo still have the old cover and old description up.  I am sure those will be updated soon.)

And here is where you can find it, if you haven’t read it yet and would like to:

Now for the stuff I’m working on… 🙂

As much as I love sharing what has just been released, it’s always fun to discuss what I have in the works.

First of all, The Bride Price (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 1) is done!

the-bride-price-final-ebook-cover

Click here to pre-order!

I’ve just handed it off to my editing team, so I plan to have this out in the middle of October.  I haven’t set an official date yet, but I’m aiming around the 14th or 15th.

This is Sep’s story.  People have been asking me about Sep’s story ever since I wrote Shotgun Groom (which is Joel Larson’s story).  Sep is Joel Laron’s younger brother-in-law.  Since that’s the case, I did bring back Joel Larson and his wife April and their children prominently into this story.  I couldn’t have Sep without bringing back some old characters. 🙂

Married In Haste (Marriage by Fate: Book 2) is about halfway done!

Married In Haste ebook cover

I got a new cover for this one.  I’ll be updating the cover for The Reclusive Earl, which is book 1.

This is going to be Brad Bachman’s (Earl of Youngtown) romance.  He’s Loretta’s very serious and somewhat obsessive compulsive older brother.  So far, this has been a fun book to write.  It has a lot of humorous moments.  One thing I love about Regencies is that it’s easy to throw in some humor.

I’m hoping to have this one out in the last week of December.

Wanted: Mail Order Husband (Fort Benton Series: Book 1) is about 1/4 of the way done!

COVER COMING SOON

I don’t have a cover for this yet.  I did contact a cover artist about making one for me, though.

This is a historical western romance set in Montana.  I thought this was going to be a romantic comedy, but I’m nearing the 20,000 word mark, and while it has some funny moments, it’s not as much of a comedy as I had hoped.  I still have about 30,000 to 40,000 words to go, so it’s possible more comedy might be added to it.  I’ll have to see where the characters are leading me.  If it’s not meant to be as funny as I wanted, that’s fine.  I like to let the characters set the tone for me.

The Rejected Groom (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 2) has been started!

The Rejected Groom Ebook Cover

I’m happy to announce that I have started this one.  It follows Sep’s story.  This is going to be Anthony (Tony) Larson’s story.  Richard and Amanda Larson had three children.  They have two twin sons (Tony and Mark) and a daughter (Annabelle).  The twin sons are encouraged to marry two women who came to Omaha as mail order brides.  Since the man they thought they were planning to marry turned out to be a “bad apple”, they need a husband.  So I brought in both Tony and Mark Larson.  I wanted to bring in some of the Larsons, and this was the perfect way to do it.

The Rejected Groom is Tony’s romance.  I’ll say more about this book in the future.  In the meantime, I have Book 3 in the series set up.

The Perfect Wife (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 3) should complete the series!

The Perfect Wife Ebook Cover2

I haven’t started this yet, but at least I know what this will be about.  This will be Mark Larson’s romance.

****

I’ll stop here before I make the post any longer.  I have more to share in my upcoming works, but I’ll until next month.

I hope everyone has a great September!

I still don’t know if this will be out late this month or early next.  It depends on when I get the book back from my wonderful editing team.  I hope to have it on pre-order at Amazon soon, but for now, it’s already up at the other retailers like Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iBooks.

This is the last book in the Marriage by Bargain Series.  Book 1 is The Viscount’s Runaway  Bride, Book 2 is The Rake’s Vow, and Book 3 is Taming The Viscountess.

I am almost finished with The Bride Price!

I’m excited to say that I expect to finish the first draft of The Bride Price by next weekend.  I think I have an idea for the other two books in this series.  I’m still working on the ideas and brainstorming.  This is why I haven’t picked out titles for those books yet.

I am hoping to get this out in October.

I’m getting close to halfway into Married In Haste!

Married In Haste ebook cover 3

Click here to pre-order!

This is Book 2 in the Married by Fate Series.  Book 1 is The Reclusive Earl.  I have no idea what Book 3 and Book 4 will be about.  I know what characters I want to feature in them, but I have no plot ideas for them yet.  So I’m going to sit down and brainstorm different possibilities.  Usually, I have ideas for the next book or two in a series while I’m writing the book that comes before it, but in this case, I’m at a complete loss.

But I am hoping to get this out right after Christmas and before New Year.

I am about 14,000 words in Wanted: Mail Order Husband!

I have no cover yet.

I’m embarking on another historical western romance series.  This one will feature mail order husbands and brides.  I would love to get this one out in January or February, but I haven’t even put it on pre-order yet.

I haven’t made much progress in The Outlaw’s Bride

The Outlaw's Bride ebook cover

Everything else has been taking center stage through the summer, and it’s harder to get word count in when the kids are home for the summer.  But I will say that I’ve gotten a ton of walking in, and I am finally proficient at using dictation to speak a story.  So I’m not complaining at all.  Getting over the hurdle in story dictation was difficult. 🙂

I hope all of you are having a great August!

A broken-hearted divorcee. A pregnant survivor. Can they turn an unwanted marriage… into love?

Brandon Herman wants to drink away his heartache. Divorced, disgraced, and out of work, the last thing he wants to do is marry again. When he’s strong-armed into marrying a Crow Indian woman, he only thinks of running away… until he learns his bride-to-be is nine months pregnant…

Lokni doesn’t trust her pale-skinned husband. After all, his kind raided her tribe, killed her loved ones, and stole her freedom. If it weren’t for the contractions, she would’ve already left her intoxicated groom. But until the baby is born, Lokni must bide her time and plan her escape…

As the unlikely couple embarks across the untamed West, Brandon’s support helps their friendship to blossom. They start to realize that it’s more than the baby that draws them together. But on the trail to a brighter future, not everybody they meet is interested in their happily ever after…

Taming The Viscountess is Available!

taming-the-viscount-ebook-cover

Here are the books in the Marriage By Bargain Series:

  • The Viscount’s Runaway Bride (Book 1)
  • The Rake’s Vow (Book 2)
  • Taming The Viscountess (Book 3)
  • If It Takes A Scandal (which will be out in September) (Book 4)

Here’s the description:

Sebastian Egan, Viscount Erandon, needs a significant amount of money in order to pay off his brother’s debts.  The sooner he gets it, the better.  But he’s not exactly what ladies are looking for.  Having lost half of his right leg while at sea, most ladies consider him to be a useless cripple, and in London where things are all about appearances, they don’t want to be seen with him.  Traditional means of finding a wife are not open to him.  He will need to find a creative way of marrying a lady who comes from a wealthy family.

As it just so happens, such a way opens up to him.  Miss Celia Barlow, nicknamed Miss “Shrew” Barlow, has upset her brother for the last time.  Her brother has had enough of her manipulative ways, and he’s offering a large dowry to the first gentleman who is willing to take her.  Sebastian, seeing his chance, takes the bait, and the wedding is set.

At once, Sebastian is drawn to Celia’s fiery spirit.  Yes, the others in London consider her to be a shrew, but that’s because they’re afraid of a lady who knows what she wants and goes for it.  His new wife is no timid wallflower.  She is full of passion, and, to his pleasure, that passion extends to the bed.

But soon, just having her body isn’t enough.  He wants to claim something much more precious.  He wants her heart.  But will he get it?

He used to think that being the captain of a ship was the most challenging thing he could do.  Now, he’s about to discover that being the husband of a lady with a fiery, independent spirit is far more challenging…and far more rewarding.

This is the last book in the Pioneer Series.  (Book 1: Wagon Trail Bride; Book 2: The Marriage Agreement; Book 3: Groom For Hire)

I’m hoping to get this out by the end of next month.  *fingers crossed*  I’m glad I wrote this one.  It was originally based on a dream I had one night.  The only other book that was based on a dream I had was Bride of Second Chances.  I don’t often dream my novels.

I’m 12,000 words into The Bride Price

I want to have this one out in October if possible, but it’s latest release date will be in November.

This is the first book in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series, and it is my first attempt at plotting a book.

So far, I haven’t lost interest in the story, which was one of my worries since I hear a lot of pansters say they lose enthusiasm for the book once they know what happens in it.  Maybe it’s because I’m used to pushing through books even when it feels like I’m pulling teeth.  I’d like to say every writing session is like Christmas day, but the truth is, a lot of it boils down to B-I-C (butt in chair).  Sometimes you just have to press through days when you don’t feel inspired to write.

I started Married In Haste

This is book 2 in the Marriage by Fate Series.  (Book 1 is The Reclusive Earl)

We’ll finally get to Brad’s romance.  I’m excited about it because the poor guy has been wanting to get married in the worst way but hasn’t been able to find the right lady.  He won’t necessarily think she’s the right one, but trust me, she will be.  I know how to pair up couples who are perfect for each other (even if they themselves aren’t perfect.) 😉

I’m 12,000 words into The Outlaw’s Bride

The Outlaw's Bride ebook cover

It’s slowly coming along, but I can’t manage more than 250 – 500 words at any one time in this one because of the other three projects.  Turns out three books at a time might be the most I can handle in serious word count on any given day.  (For me that is about 2,000 to 3,000 words.  I’m not the kind of author who can do 5,000 or more.  That would wear me out.   My method is slow and steady.) 🙂

I hope everyone has a great July!

This is one of my favorites because it has a lot of great humor.  This is one of the few books where I did an alpha hero.  The heroine needed an alpha hero because she had such a strong personality.  I’ll be adding the pre-order link to this on Amazon in about a week.

  • Wagon Trail Bride (Book 1)
  • The Marriage Agreement (Book 2)

I’m happy to announce that I expect to have this book out in August!  I’m not sure when in August, though.  A lot of it depends on my editing team and their schedules.

This book will complete the Pioneer Series.  For those of you who enjoy historical western romances where the couple is on a trail heading west, that involves a Native American heroine, and that involves a baby, this book has all three.

If It Takes A Scandal is halfway done

As mentioned above under Taming The Viscountess, this is Book 4 in the Marriage by Bargain Series.  This is due out September or October, though since I’m almost halfway done, I’m hoping for September.

This is Corin’s book.  Corin was the want Celia had wanted to marry.  Celia ended up with Sebastian instead in book 3.  So I had to give Corin to someone else.  As it turns out, Corin ends up with a lady he thinks was trying to take advantage of him (sexually speaking).  He assumed the heroine was trying to get into his pants.  He was wrong.  She was shoved at him, and she was trying to get away from him.  But while she was doing that, her hands happened to land in a certain place on his body.  Hence his reason for misunderstanding the situation.  I actually think it’s funny because he’s such a prude.  (This is my sense of humor at work.)  But from there, neither one like each other, and they spend almost an entire year apart until some matchmakers force them to be at his estate for three months.  Anyway, they are now stuck together in the country, and I’m having a lot of fun with it.

The Bride Price is finally being written

This is book 1 in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series.  I have about two more books planned, but I don’t have titles for those yet.  This is planned for a November release.

After all this time of talking about Sep’s book, I am finally writing it.  (Sep was Joel Larson’s younger brother-in-law in Shotgun Groom.)  A lot of you have been waiting for this, and this is the year where he’ll finally get his happy ending.

I’m going to have to adjust the description because the characters have veered course off of what I had originally planned.  Instead of Sep bidding on her, he’s going to report the auction and rescue the three women from it.  The three women now need husbands.  Sep will take Angela (who is the heroine of this book).  There is the matter of a price that comes later in the story, but I need to tweak on the description before I’m ready to say more than this.

The Outlaw’s Bride is almost 10,000 words in

Here are the books in the Wyoming Series:

  • The Outlaw’s Bride (Book 1) – due out next June – August
  • The Rancher’s Bride (Book 2) – due out next June – August
  • Title to come (Book 3) – due out later 2018
  • not sure if there will be a book 4 (depends on how well Books 1-3 do)

The Outlaw's Bride ebook cover

This is nothing like The Stagecoach Bride, which is what this is based on.  The characters have changed a lot, though a couple are pretty similar as they were in the other version.  Lillian is braver than before. Mic is softer than before.  Abby (Mic’s sister) is happy and fun.  Wade (Mic’s brother) is still brooding, but he’s quiet and polite.  Jeremiah (a family friend) doesn’t go around kissing girls, though he did used to be a preacher.

Mic and Lillian marry early on in the story, and I’m starting to think the attraction between them is instant unlike before.  I expect them to head for Charle’s ranch to rescue Wade’s son a lot sooner in the book, too.  We’ll see how things play out.  But A LOT of differences are coming in this one.

***

Alright, I’ll stop here.  There’s a lot of good stuff planned, and I’m looking forward to writing all of these books and more!  Have a great June, everyone!
