A VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL…………NATIVE AFFAIRS (A Collection of Four Contemporary American Indian Romances ) – JUST 99¢February 8th, 2013
For a limited time I’ve decided to offer NATIVE AFFAIRS to readers for just 99¢.
The collection is 700 PAGES OF ROMANCE READING PLEASURE!
The common denominator in the four romances I selected for NATIVE AFFAIRS is the Native American hero in each story. I chose to write about this Northern hemisphere icon because for me he exemplifies the strength and purpose and stoic masculinity always found in male romantic leads. From the physical trials his ancestors endured to reach tribal manhood, to the indefatigable courage they displayed in fighting the overwhelming numbers of European settlers, American Indians are unique in history. The modern counterpart’s ability to survive in society while retaining the mysticism and respect for nature and its processes that characterize his culture makes him a compelling figure. In my books this tenacity and toughness is translated into a contemporary setting and a relationship with a woman who challenges his background and beliefs. This contrast and conflict is what makes a good story and I’ve exploited that basic difference to tell tales that bring out the best in both characters who come together as a couple.
In Blackfoot Affair the main characters are on opposite sides of a legal battle, and in An Indian Affair the hero is a renegade bounty hunter who meets a teacher he simply can’t resist. In Medicine Man’s Affair the hero is an athlete who has to defy his own prejudices to pursue a woman he doesn’t want to desire, and in Marriage in Name Only a troubled teenager becomes a conflicted millionaire who can’t forget his first love. All four men are a bit difficult, a little dangerous, and a lot sexy. I hope you enjoy reading about this quartet of heartbreakers as much as I enjoyed writing about them.
MEDICINE MAN’S AFFAIR, Book Three in the NATIVE AFFAIRS Quartet, is available for FREE today, January 9th and tomorrow, January 10th, exclusively through Amazon.com. I encourage all romantics at heart to meet Lee Youngson, a witty and proud American Indian, who is capable of sweeping any woman off her feet, including Jennifer Gardiner, the tall, honey blonde Publicity Director for the Philadelphia Freedom professional football team.
I am pleased to announced that today I released the digital edition of BIG EASY HEAT. BIG EASY HEAT was originally released in print as ROUGHNECK in 1988. I penned this story shortly after a spending a week cruising the Mississippi on a riverboat. I had the opportunity to see close up and experience first hand life in New Orleans and the surrounding parishes. It was truly an eye opener for a girl from Metro New York. It was this experience that led me to create Beau Landry, a roughneck bad boy straight from the oil fields of Louisiana.
Beau Landry was a real charmer, but Morgan Taylor was in Louisiana strictly for business. She was not about to become emotionally or physically involved with the key witness against her client. Just one dinner with the handsome, rugged Mr. Landry wouldn’t hurt—as long as Morgan could ignore her growing attraction to him…
Beau was prepared to use any tactic to get to know Morgan better. If it was a crime to be falling in love with a beautiful lady lawyer, then Beau was guilty as charged. He only hoped that his sentence with her would be for life!
I hope you enjoy reading about Beau as much as I enjoyed creating him.

“Today we have added a new feature, Amazon Author Rank, the definitive list of best-selling authors on Amazon.com. This list makes it easy for readers to discover the best-selling authors on Amazon.com overall and within a selection of major genres.”
