His Auctioned Bride Has Been Changed To The Bride Price

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on the title change to a book I have scheduled to write this year.  Remember Sep from Shotgun Groom?  He was Joel Larson’s brother-in-law.  Last year, I ran a question in the private Facebook group I have with my author friend Janet Syas Nitsick.  In the question, I asked, “Would you rather read about Sep,  Adam/Jacob Larson, or Vivian and Hugh?”

If you want to be a part of the Facebook group, here’s the link.  Just ask to join, and Janet or I will let you in.  Whenever I make most of my decisions about what to right, I will present the question to this group.  It’s a great group of people over there.  Very nice and supportive.

So anyway, Sep won, and that is why I’m doing his book.  Right now, I have the release month set for November.  (I want to finish up the Pioneer Series with Forced Into Marriage, so I had to shift this book from August to November.)

Okay, so I’m in the process of working on the description for Sep’s story.  In the process of thinking up the storyline and who the heroine is going to be, I had to modify the title of the book.  In modifying the title, I also changed the cover.  I also changed the cover because I used this couple on the Forced Into Marriage cover.

Some of you might have already pre-ordered this on iBooks, so I want to assure you that this is the same story.

Here’s the old cover and title:


Here’s the new cover and title:


I won’t say more about this story right now.  It’s so far out from being released.  But I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the title and cover has been changed so you don’t wonder what happened to Sep’s story.  It is still going to be done. 🙂

Groom For Hire is Now Available!

The books in the Pioneer Series are as follows:

  • Wagon Trail Bride (Book 1)
  • The Marriage Agreement (Book 2)
  • Groom For Hire (Book 3)
  • Forced Into Marriage (Book 4)  – I’m not sure if there will be more than 4 books.  I’ll have to see how Book 4 plays out.

Groom for Hire

Here’s the description:

When Joe Otto accepted the job to lead a wagon train to California, the last thing he expected was to be asked to marry Mr. Heller’s daughter. Still pining over the one that got away, he’s not sure he has it in him to open his heart to another woman. Mr. Heller assures him the arrangement will only be temporary. Once Joe delivers her to her aunt and uncle in California, he can annul the marriage. Joe can use the money, and besides, it’s only a temporary arrangement. She won’t be his wife for the rest of his life. Reassured by this logic, he agrees to the marriage contract.

Michelle Heller knows the only way she’s going on the wagon train is if she has a husband, so she readily accepts the deal her father makes with Joe. What she doesn’t expect, however, is that her new husband is the most attractive young man she’s ever seen. Over and over, she has to remind herself their marriage isn’t real. It’s only borne of necessity. But as the days pass on the trail, it’s harder to remember their marriage is only on paper, and it seems the two are at odds as to what they want this marriage to be.

After Joe watched the woman of his dreams start a life with someone else, he vowed he would never open himself up to being hurt again. Can Michelle break through his wall, or will she have to annul the marriage once she reaches California?

If interested, this is where you can find it:

Updates on What I’m Doing

The big news is that I have a new book coming out this Sunday!

Due out February 12!

Groom for Hire

Click here to reserve your copy today!

 Groom For Hire is the third book in the Pioneer Series, but it’s not the last.  I came across a certain character while writing this story, and I was intrigued enough to start a fourth book.

So the books in the series are as follows:

  • Wagon Trail Bride (Book 1)
  • The Marriage Agreement (Book 2)
  • Groom For Hire (Book 3)
  • Forced Into Marriage (Book 4)

Will there be a 5th?  I don’t know yet.  We’ll see how Forced Into Marriage goes.

The Rake’s Vow is in edits

This is Book 2 in the Marriage by Bargain Series.

Expected Release Date: March 26!

This turned into a much sweeter book than I had expected.  (When I say “sweet”, I don’t mean “no sex”.  There is sex.)  Sweet to me means that the hero and heroine get along exceptionally well.  I love the dynamic between the two.  In my opinion, they have an excellent relationship of openness and honesty.  It just happened that they softly fell in love with each other.  There was no startling moment where things clicked.  The relationship just progressed from friendship to love without either one realizing it until they’re faced with an unexpected situation that pops up.

Books in the Marriage by Bargain Series are as follows:

  • The Viscount’s Runaway Bride (Book 1)
  • The Rake’s Vow (Book 2)
  • Taming The Viscountess (Book 3)
  • If It Takes a Scandal (Book 4)
  • Loretta’s brother (Brad) will be the hero of Book 5 (I don’t have a title yet)

The Reclusive Earl is almost 3/4 of the way done

This is Book 1 in the Marriage by Fate Series.

This is due out April 9!

Hopefully, that is the last version of the cover I’ll do.  I know I keep changing it, but I think this one will work.  The story, thankfully, has been coming along a lot easier than the cover.  I am slowly coming up with ideas on the other books in this series.  Right now, I’m focusing more on the Marriage by Bargain Series.

I probably should have waited to start this book, but after The Earl’s Wallflower Bride which had Opal (Warren’s sister) in it, I wanted to do this one before I lost touch with her character.  Any time I spend some time away from a character, I lose the connection with him/her.  Then I have to revisit the book they were in so I can get connected again.

Taming The Viscountess is 1/4 of the way done

This is Book 3 in the Marriage by Bargain Series

This one is so much fun to write.  The hero keeps winning one up on the heroine, but he does it in humorous way.  I think this book has a comedic feel to it.  That is exactly the tone a book needs if the hero is going to take an unlikable character and make her someone we can all root for.

Forced Into Marriage is slow in coming

This is Book 4 in the Pioneer Series


Reserve your copy today!

I’m working through the last rounds of edits on The Rake’s Vow while writing, and this book tends to get pushed aside while I make room for the other two that are further up in my publishing schedule.

I don’t know if this will be out before If It Takes A Scandal or not.  I plan to start If It Takes A Scandal in the next week or two.  If It Takes A Scandal will be Book 4 in the Marriage by Bargain Series.
