SNARE HIS HEART


Since I was a girl, I’ve loved the Beauty and the Beast story—long before Walt Disney Studios captured audiences with the movie and stage play. In my mind, the Beast didn’t change, but Beauty came to know him. As she did, she realized he was beautiful inside even though his exterior was rough.

I was struck with this revelation when we attended a small church in which a disfigured man sang in the choir. The first time I saw him I was surprised. He’d been in a horrible car crash which smashed his jaw and part of it was missing. I suppose now there would be better re-building techniques available. The point is, after I became acquainted with him, I no longer saw his flawed features.

This is the premise behind SNARE HIS HEART, which re-releases today. Forrest was severely scarred on one side of his upper body when he tried to save his first wife from their burning home. Because of his scars—inside and out—he’s become a recluse. He takes his children to church, but stands at the back near the door to avoid people and leaves as soon as possible.





He needs a wife to look after his rebuilt home and his three children. He’s especially worried about his oldest daughter, Frannie, who hasn’t spoken since the fire. Their home is too far for the children to attend public school and his wife would need to teach them at home.

Addie has been jilted at the altar when her fiancĂ© ran away with her bridesmaid. She knows she will never be allowed to forget the scandal and decides to become a mail-order bride. Forrest’s letter touches her heart and she accepts his request. She determines that in addition to his children, she will snare his heart. Is it possible?

I love mail-order bride stories but I wouldn’t have wanted to become one. However, if the choices were some of the same ones that faced the women about whom I write, then I would have chosen to take my chances. Many more women had acceptable experiences than bad. I imagine the comparison is about the same as for arranged marriages, which were not uncommon at that time.

SILVER DAGGER BOOK TOURS CELEBRATION #GIVEAWAY


Don't miss the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the post!


Silver Dagger Book Tours is now 2
years old this month!


Believe it or not, Silver Dagger Book
Tours was created and is mainly operated by just one person!
I used to be just an internet crawler
looking for new books and giveaways and stumbled upon book tours.
After indulging in many dozens of tours, I decided I'd like to try my
hand at blogging in my spare time (with absolutely no blogging
experience at all!) I was a book blogger for several companies (and
still am) and stuck with it for over 3 years. In that time, I learned
all the ropes and became a pretty efficient blogger, but there was
still something missing- I wanted to make my posts stand out a bit!
So, I started creating small graphics like “about the book” and
the other standard graphics that you see in all my tours nowadays and
started jazzing my posts up.
I became pregnant with my second child
in the fall of 2015 and my hubby and I decided to purchase
our first home finally, so I quit my waitressing job to pack up
everything for the move and never looked back!
It took several months of trying to get
the ball rolling and was quite difficult at first to get authors to
tour with me. Thus, I had an idea to let everybody pay what they can
comfortably afford instead of set rates as I thought what some other
companies charged were just outrageous!
Since then, I have done over 1000 tours
and worked with hundreds of amazing authors – many who come back
for repeat tours! I have 2-3 tours kick off every weekday with
occasional tours on the weekends and EVERY tour is required to have a
giveaway so readers can gain a little something and have fun while
they enjoy learning about new books.
I have an absolutely amazing group of
bloggers that share my tours on their sites and really couldn't have
gotten this far without their continued support and would like to
thank each and every one of them! Ya'll are amazing! I also have two
assistants that help me check links and keep up with blogger activity
– Janet, who's been with me over a year, and Laurie, who is a new
addition. Ya'll ladies are spectacular and I couldn't do it without you!
Absolutely everything else is
completely run solely by me though and I really enjoy organizing
tours and helping new authors get discovered. I don't discriminate
and host ALL fictional genres in ALL age ranges as me and my bloggers
have a broad range of readers that enjoy many different genres.
After two years of astronomical tours,
I am going stronger than ever now and growing on a daily basis with
plans to continue hosting tours for many many years!


If you are an author interested in
booking a tour with me, you can see a general FAQ page and booking
HERE!



If you are a blogger interested in
joining some of my tours, you can see my current sign ups HERE!
And sign up for email invites HERE!



A third generation local of the
historic town of Fredericksburg, TX, I was born and raised among the
rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country where the beauty of the
landscape is breathtaking and town is famous for the Main Street historic
shopping district, the best peaches in the world, wildflowers and
wine. I really can't imagine living anywhere else!
A country girl through and through, I
grew up hunting, fishing and digging for Indian artifacts, all the
while enjoying the many rivers and swimming holes around town. I'm a
stay at home mom with three beautiful boys, ages 9, 2, and 1 that
encompass my entire world!
A bookaholic from birth, I have always
had a deep passion for reading and spend many late nights devouring
books into the wee hours of the morning. My “real” book
collection numbers over 3000 books and take up an entire small room
in our house with custom bookshelves built by my husband that I call
my “book cave”. I've been building this collection since my
childhood and will keep on adding to it for the rest of my life. Of
course, I also have a similar collection of ebooks as well as I
finally went digital a few years ago.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading,
playing with my kids, doing DIY renovation projects with my husband,
cooking, and relaxing on my back porch with a good cup of coffee
while I watch the massive axis deer herd come through the yard.

CRESCENT CREEK SERIES



ALL
CRESCENT CREEK NOVELLAS HAVE RETURNING CHARACTERS, 
BUT CAN BE READ AS
STAND ALONES.


His Midnight Sun
Crescent Creek Book 3
by
Viviana MacKade


Genre:
Romantic Suspense

Tormented,
fierce, and broken, sculptor Aidan Murphy has judged himself guilty.
He yearns for love but pushes everyone away. He longs for acceptance
but has lost the key to open his heart. Until he meets Summer
Williams. Beautiful and smart, Dr. Williams promises haven for a man
who believes he deserves none. All he has to do is let her in and
risk his heart and soul.
Summer’s
managed to keep her inner light alive, even through tragedy. She’s
created a new life for herself and her daughter in Crescent Creek
with loving, caring and fun friends–well, except brooding,
breathtaking Aidan. She’s used to keeping away from his type,
though. 
All she has to do is ignore
the pull of a man who’s turning up to be much more than snarls and
storms. Will her compassion and medical instincts let her?
Love
can heal a broken soul and shake up a timid heart. Or it can unleash
devastation and a thirst for revenge.
Will Aidan and Summer survive the storm?


**Only .99 cents!!**

HIS MIDNIGHT SUN Excerpt:
“Ready, baby girl?” Summer asked Chloe as she picked her up, ready for daycare. Which was when she saw the faded red ring on the clean T-shirt her daughter wore. Stupid strawberries never washed away well.
Summer held Chloe in front of her from the underarms so they were face to face. “Let’s talk a moment. Can you face your peers with a faded stain on you, little one? Because we’re not late, but we’ll be if I change you.” Chloe smile-drooled, bubbled a ya ya Summer translated as an A-Okay. “You’re the best,” she said and followed the praise with a big, smacking kiss. Then added one more for good measure.
She grabbed her purse and made her way to the front door. When she opened it and took a step outside, surprise–shock, actually–made her stop on her track.
Sprawled on one of the garden chairs on her small porch, Aidan slept. He’d slid down a bit looking for a more comfortable position, and his head leaned on the side probably looking for a pillow or any form of support. He still wore last night’s clothes, but patches of dust covered his dark T-shirt and jeans.
Hands down, best package she’d found on her doorsteps.
Now. Was she supposed to do what, grab him and drag him inside? That would wake him up, and she’d have to ask silly questions along the line of, what are you doing? How long have you been here? And why didn’t you knock?
Yeah, she wasn’t sold on the idea. Because this package delivered himself the morning after the kiss, chances were the kiss was his reason for him being there. It turned her stomach in knots and made her want to hide. If she managed to be very quiet, maybe–
Chloe, like the cool kid she was, solved everything by squealing.
Loudly.
Or, at least, loudly enough to wake up Aidan. A brief moment of confusion, understandable, since he was sleeping on her porch, then he focused bloodshot green eyes on them. “I want to talk to you,” he declared in a raspy, sleep drenched voice.
“Phones were invented exactly to fulfill such need.”
“I hate phones.”
“I’m not really surprised. Me? I hate being late and I have to take Chloe to daycare. I’ll talk to you later?”
Still groggy, he nodded. “I’ll come with you.”
Hell.
“Sure. Why not? It’s totally normal finding you asleep on my doorsteps, and then you walk with me over at Chloe’s daycare.”
“Perfect, then. Let’s go.”








Painted Love
Crescent Creek Book 2

Thou
shalt not steal.

Oh,
but Florence had, and would do so one last time.
Ten
pieces her grandfather painted for her because he loved her.
Ten
pieces her mother lost, along with anything else, for loving the
wrong man.
She
couldn’t get back everything he’d wasted away, but she’d be
damned if she’d give up those paintings. 

Easy
and genuine, Rhett loves his life–his family, his market, his town.
Until he meets a British woman with grey eyes and a cute little
smile. The woman he’s been waiting for.
The
thing is, to love her is easy, but can he trust her?

When
Rhett pushes to uncover her agenda, Flo knows she will lose
something–the man she loves or what she’d been fighting for
years. 
Which
road will she choose?




**Only .99 cents!!**





All Those Miles I Have Walked
Crescent Creek Book 1

At
eighteen, DJ had to make a choice–her heart or her dreams. Neither
was wrong, yet either would break her heart. She chose the world.
Over a decade later, she returns to Crescent Creek and to the one
regret she's ever had–Scott. Scott’s always been steady as a
rocky reef. He’d loved once and when she’d left, his strong heart
had crumbled like a sandcastle. Now DJ is back, and Scott wants
nothing to do with her. The problem? They share Eva, a close friend
of both, and now Eva needs their help. Because of her, he’s stuck
with DJ and he’d be damned, the woman still gets under his skin. DJ
is a free spirit who needs the road under her feet. Scott is a family
man who wants to groom his roots. With danger on their doorstep and a
baby to keep safe, how much are they willing to compromise for love?







She Came With the Tide
Crescent Creek Book 0.5

He’s
impulsive, fearless, and fun loving.

Erik
Axelsson, Ax, had it all: talent, fame, money. He’d lived the rock
& roll life fully and with gusto until it wasn’t fun anymore.
Without a second thought, he’d traded the spotlight with the
Floridian sun, and the guitar with a surfboard. Rich, and free from
anything - what more he could need?

She’s
innocent, scared, and in trouble. 
Andrea
Smith escaped the life imposed to her when her parents joined a cult.
After years on the run, hunger pushed her to accept a stranger’s
offer for breakfast. She had no clue her life changed with that
simple ‘yes’. 

But
the past catches up with her, forcing Andrea to choose what person
she wants to be: the scared cult member that obeyed in silence, or
the new woman Erik made blossom. 




**Get it FREE!**





Beach
bum and country music addicted, Viviana lives in a small Floridian
town with her husband and her son, her die-hard fans and personal
cheer squad. She spends her days between typing on her beloved
keyboard, playing in the pool with her boy, and eating whatever her
husband puts on her plate (the guy is that good, and she really loves
eating). Besides beaching, she enjoys long walks, horse-riding,
hiking, and pretty much whatever she can do outside with her family.

CLARON, A SIBLINGS O'RIFCAN SERIES ROMANCE



Don't miss the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of this post!


Claron
Siblings O'Rifcan Series Book 1
by
Katharine E. Hamilton

Genre: Clean Romance

Tossing her belongings into a suitcase and escaping heartbreak seemed like
the best idea for Rhea Conners. She’d simply travel across the
ocean to visit her grandfather in Ireland and heal. Then she’d come
back. Simple. But what she doesn’t expect is to find solace and
healing in the form of the O’Rifcan family. One member in
particular: Claron. 


Claron enjoyed his life farming the land his grandparents gifted him. He
lived his life quietly and contentedly, until Rhea arrived. He’d
steered clear of relationships and entanglements since his last
heartbreak, but something about Roland’s granddaughter twists him
up inside. Something about Rhea has him rethinking his life of solitude. 

Two hearts. One chance. Can Rhea and Claron overcome past hurts to make a
new beginning?


CLARON Excerpt:

Defeated, Rhea slid back behind the wheel and began racking her brain to try and remember the remaining directions. How far was she? Could she make it on foot? She remembered her oversized suitcase and its wheel-less base. If she had to, she would make the trek, but she had to know where she was going first. Perhaps there was a store up ahead she could stop in and ask for directions. She looked out the windows and only saw farmland to her left and the River Shannon to her right. And rain. “Okay, Rhea, think. Think, think, think, think, think.” Jitters began to take over and she absentmindedly drummed her fingers on the steering wheel.

A knock sounded on the window and she jumped in her seat with a small squeal as a man peered into the car. The hood to his raincoat covered most of his face, but a pair of teeth flashed in a warm smile. “You alright there, lass?”

Rhea stared a moment before she realized the man was standing in pouring rain waiting for her response. She reached for the window and rolled it down. “My tire is flat.”

His brow furrowed as he looked at the tires on the passenger side of the vehicle. He then held up a finger as he rounded her car and looked at the other two. Nodding, he made his way back to the passenger window. “Definitely have a puncture back there,” he motioned towards the direction of the tire. “Whereabouts are you headed?”

Rhea shrugged and pointed to the sloppy stack of papers next to her. “Those were my directions.”

He motioned for her to get out of the car. “Best give you a lift then, come along.” He did not wait for an answer but expected her to climb out in the middle of a storm and drive away with a stranger.

Rhea continued to sit in her car.

He appeared on her side of the vehicle and opened her door and she jumped in her seat. “I see you have some bags, I’ll grab those if you want to just head towards my lorry.” He motioned to the vehicle parked on the other side of the road.

She didn’t move.

“Not here to hurt you, lass. Just trying to help.” He offered his hand and then turned away to yell as a vehicle sped by and splashed him in its wake. Turning back towards Rhea he waved her out. “Come along, I haven’t all day.”

She caught a glimpse of the devastatingly handsome face beneath the hood and felt herself sliding out of the car. “I have bags in the trunk as well.”

“Aye, I’ll fetch them. Hurry now, before you get soaked.”

Rhea darted across the road and hopped into the passenger seat, only it was not the passenger side.
Rolling her eyes, she quickly darted back into the rain to slide into the opposite seat.

A deep laugh filtered through the door as the man opened it. “Yanks always take time to adjust to the vehicles.” He handed over her purse. “I’ll go get the rest of your bags.”

She watched as he patiently walked back across the road unaffected by the downpour and grabbed her two giant suitcases out of the back seat of her rental. She heard them plop into the bed of his truck.

He then fetched her remaining bags out of her trunk and tossed them into his truck bed as well. She then saw him unroll a blue tarp to cover them. He slid into the truck and heaved a contented sigh. “That ought to do it.”

“Thank you,” Rhea said.

He turned as he slipped off his hood and his bright blue eyes sparkled as his raven hair dripped with what little rain bombarded him beneath his hood. “Riley O’Rifcan, at your service.” He held out a hand and she shook it.

“Rhea,” she introduced.

“Nice to meet you, Rhea. Based on the vehicle and the luggage, I am assuming you just arrived in Ireland?”

“You would be correct.” She reached into her purse and pulled out her cell phone. The screen lit up. Pursing her lips, she slipped it back into her bag.

“No service here, lass. You will have better luck closer to town.”

“Where exactly am I?” She grimaced at the stupid question, but the stranger responded in kind.

“You’re at the county crossing, love.”

“The county crossing? As in Clare to Limerick?”

“That would be the one.” Eyeing her, he turned to face her. “I take it that is not where you planned to go?”

“Well, yes and no. I know I’m supposed to be near here, but in County Clare.”

“Do you have a village name for me?”

“No, unfortunately I don’t. All I know is that I was to cross the O’Brien’s Bridge and head northeast. I’m to stop at a bed and breakfast there.”

“Would it be Sidna’s Bed and Breakfast you’re after?”

Relief washed over her face. “Yes! Yes, that’s it!” She gripped his hand as if he were her lifeline. Realizing her action, she dropped it immediately.

He grinned before turning to face the front. “It just so happens I just left the B&B. We aren’t too far off the mark.”

She placed a hand over her heart. “Thank you. Thank you for stopping to help me and for knowing where I am.”

He laughed. “I’d best know where you are. I grew up here.”

“You did?”

He nodded as he drove, the sound of the windshield wipers and peddling rain filled the silences.

“Do you still live around here?”

“Aye, but closer to Limerick. My family is all about though. In fact, I imagine you will meet plenty of them in a few minutes.”

Confused, she glanced over at him and he smiled. Rhea couldn’t think of ever seeing a man so handsome, even when he was dripping wet.

“Sidna is my mam.” He chuckled at her surprise. “She’ll be pleased I stumbled upon her guest.”

A man on a mission....

Mackenzie Coalson was determined to rebuild his hometown after a devastating

romantic junk that goes with it. He has a vandal to catch and no
sweet smelling bundle of femininity is going to sway him.

interest to keep it, "business only". But that's hard to do
when their combined attraction is volatile enough to burn down the town.


**Get it FREE!**



Leather and Lace
Tempered Steel Book 2

Sam Coalson, ex-Navy Seal, has returned to Grafton for the wedding of his
brother. After being run out of town fifteen years ago for a crime he
didn’t commit, he’s determined to claim what is rightfully his
and take on anyone crazy enough to try and stop him.



Angel Devereaux is smart, sexy and definitely on Sam’s blacklist. After
siding with Sam’s enemy fifteen years ago, Angel can’t help but
wonder what if….what if Sam had never left? What if he could
forgive her now? She had her reasons, but he won’t listen. So
enough with words, sometimes action is exactly what’s called for.



Excerpt of LEATHER AND LACE 

“Well, if it isn’t the Angel of Mercy. Have you come to administer to the weak and injured? I’m afraid you’re a little too late. Everyone’s been patched up. Of course you can always kiss the boo-boos, can’t you?” Sam drawled as he shifted position on the railing.

Angel felt a blush heat her cheeks at his words and started to turn away. This was obviously a mistake. She was getting nowhere with him. She saw him wince as he moved and she turned back. “Were you really hurt?”

“Yeah, I’m in a lot of pain. Do you think you can help me?” he drawled as he passed his hand across his brow.

Angel immediately became solicitous. “Where are you hurt?” She ran up the front porch steps. She looked him over, searching for injury.

“Here.” Sam smiled and pointed to his groin. She could see his erection tenting his jeans. “Still want to help?”

Angel stiffened in outrage. “You bast…”

“Tsk, tsk, tsk. Careful there, Angel baby, you wouldn’t want to tarnish that halo, would you?” He hefted himself off the railing and came to stand next to her.

Forged in Fire
Tempered Steel Book 5


Lady, if I were you, I’d get the hell away from here ‘cause when I make
it up this hill, I’m gonna be looking for you.” Lucky Coalson’s
luck has run out. His ex-wife turned out to be a con artist; his
business is in a shambles, and he’s been tossed into a muddy river
by a smart assed feminist with a chip on her shoulder. Things
couldn’t get much worse…or so he thought.

When Lucky’s accused of murdering his ex-wife, the Coalson family
enlists the help of a private investigator to gather the clues
necessary to prove his innocence. Little did they know that Renee
Morgan is the same woman that sent Lucky scrambling up a sodden river
bank at the height of a storm.


The two square off immediately, but Renee’s admiration of the Coalson
family, despite her dislike of Lucky, is the deciding factor in her
acceptance of the job. And although Lucky bristles every time she
speaks, he grudgingly respects her intelligence and savvy skills as a
private investigator. 

As the hunt for the killer escalates, the two find they are not the only
ones looking for the mysterious assassin. And the other people are
more than willing to take out anyone that gets in their way,
including those that Lucky and Renee hold dear to their hearts. 

In a moment of passion that rocks them to the core, they realize their
love may be forged in fire, but both have been badly burned by past
lovers, and too stubborn to admit the truth. Can they find a way
around their fears, or will Lucky’s ex-wife continue to plague him
from the grave?
