Ruined by the Earl is Now Available!

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

This is now available!  It won’t be out on iBooks or Flipkart or some other channels until Smashwords approves the book and distributes them, but they are up on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords now.

Here’s a brief description: After losing all of his money in a reckless bet, Logan Breckman, the Earl of Toplyn, needs to marry a lady from a wealthy family–and fast. So he does the only thing he can think of and picks one at random to trick into marriage.

You can find it here.

The Earl’s Stolen Bride will probably be out in June or July


I hate to say it’ll be out before these months because progress has been slow on this book.  The problem is that I’m having trouble knowing exactly how things are playing out, so I have to go slow.  Some books take longer to write than others, and this is going to be one that takes a long time.  It seems I can only go in short bursts before I have to think it over.  So I had to push the deadline for this one back.

In the meantime, I am working on other stories…

A Groom’s Promise is Going Along Well

a groom's promise

I am over the halfway point in my novella “The Marriage Bargain” that is in this anthology with Janet Syas Nitsick.  (I was calling my novella “The Shy Groom”, but I like “The Marriage Bargain” better.)  I think we’re still set to publish this anthology in June.  However, Janet has been going through some health issues and attending to a funeral in the family.  So it’s a hectic time for her, and it might push the book’s release back.  If anyone would like to pray for her, I’m sure she’d appreciate it.

Richard Larson’s Romance is Going Along Well


I finally hit the 10,000 mark on this story.  I know that doesn’t seem like much since I have been “working” on this on and off for over a year, but this time I am finally on the right track.  I’m looking for a summer release on it.  *fingers crossed*

I Just Started The Convenient Mail Order Bride

(Cover Should Be Coming Soon)

I just picked up on another historical western romance.  This is supposed to be a standalone mail-order bride story, but if it leads into a series, I’ll let it.  It took me a while to figure out what to do with the hero.  I wanted to do give him a reason he didn’t want to be married because he’s not the one who places the ad for a mail-order bride.  Someone else placed it.  So I had to figure out who sent it and why.  Now that I’ve figured it out, I can write the book.  I’m not sure if it’ll be out this year or next.  I still have to finish up the Enchanted Galaxy series.  I’ll get to those in future posts.

Hope everyone has a great April!
