Romance Collection for Best Of The West

Hello again past, present and future readers,

As I mentioned in my earlier blog, in 2012 I made 21 of my 23 novels previously published through several mainstream publishing houses available on Amazon.com. In late 2012 I began to publish my suspense and young adult fiction as an Indie author. And while my career has taken a turn from romance to suspense and time travel mysteries I have decided to also take the time and effort to answer both an old and new reader request, making the books available as several collections.Earlier today I was pleased to announce that I am taking the 21 novels and grouping them in a collection of books. I believe this is a good solution to reader queries and requests.

The books are being separated into 9 different collections of similar sub-genres and reader interest. Remember these are the original full length unabridged books. All of the collections of either two or three books each, are published direct to the reader at a price that will save them money. It is the start of the summer reading season so enjoy!

This morning it was Men In Uniform and now here is a brief blurb for the second romance collection, Best Of The West.

COLLECTIONS Best Of The West

Many fans have requested that I offer boxed sets of my romance novels, so I have grouped them into categories that share themes.  This one I’ve titled Best of the West because the two novels take place in the modern-day Wild West states of Colorado and Montana.  Goodbye Desperado and Cody’s Last Stand were two of my favorites, partly because they both have lots of horses, but mostly because the two heroes are super-sexy macho studs.  For those of you who love sensual, but emotional love stories, I think you’ll enjoy spending some time with Matt Montana and John Cody.

Reader Appreciation Collection Savings

Dear past, present and future readers,

In 2012 I made 21 of my 23 novels previously published through several mainstream publishing houses available on Amazon.com. In late 2012 I began to publish my suspense and young adult fiction as an Indie author. And while my career has taken a turn from romance to suspense and time travel mysteries I have decided to also take the time and effort to answer both an old and new reader request, making the books available as several collections. I am pleased to announce today that I am taking the 21 novels and grouping them in a collection of books.  I believe this is a good solution to reader queries and requests.

The books are being separated into 9 different collections of similar sub-genres and reader interest.  Remember these are the original full length unabridged books.  All of the collections of either two or three books each, are published direct to the reader at a price that will save them money.  It is the start of the summer reading season so enjoy!

Here is a brief blurb for the first collection, Men In Uniform.

COLLECTIONS Men In Uniform

The Men In Uniform Romance Collection is about several men and women who served in different branches of the military and how that experience affected the rest of their lives. They were set against the Vietnam era but could apply to any time our soldiers were involved in a conflict thousands of miles from home and family.  These stories will make you laugh and cry and understand the depths of wounds a war can cause.  I truly love these people and their stories and hope you will, too.  

To read more about the three books, click on the Romance Collection tile above. 

Additional collections will be made available on Amazon throughout early June.

What do you do when the choice you made was the wrong one?  During the war, Jeff Hawkins’s tenderness had been nurse Angela’s sanctuary from the horrors of Vietnam, and his passion had been their salvation. But Jeff had been wounded long before a bullet brought him to the EVAC hospital.  Fearless, with nothing to lose, Jeff was the kind of soldier to whom they awarded Purple Hearts . . . posthumously.  Years later, when he encountered Angela again at a veterans’ reunion, she could no longer pretend that the madness of war had triggered their brief, all-consuming alliance.  Could they have a second chance?  Or had she forfeited any claim to Jeff’s love when she did the unforgivable . . . married his best friend?  Not all wounds are visible . . . and not all wounds can be healed by the soft touch of a nurse’s hands.  But Angela knew he was worth fighting for . . . and Jeff was tired of fighting.

“It’s difficult to investigate a crime that hasn’t happened yet.”

Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey have just returned from changing a girl’s life in 1966 and are a little battered and bruised from their adventure. But when a small voice pleads for their help to save her family from a murderer, they know they must respond.
They research the story, but there is very little information to be found. All they know is that it takes place on Crystal Key, a small private island off the Florida Keys. Since it appears to be deserted, they decide to pop in, gather clues, then pop back. It was a good excuse to spend a lazy day on a beautiful beach.
But from the first step, their journey back to 1980 goes horribly wrong. The area is crawling with drug traffickers and tens of thousands of refugees fleeing Cuba. They meet the young girl and her family, but their intervention puts them in the direct path of the killer.
Can they find out who he is in time to save the girl, her family . . . and themselves? Or are they destined to be a madman’s latest victims?
