To celebrate the recent release of Tall, Dark, and Royal, the latest story in my Renegade Royals Series, I’m running a fun holiday contest at Fresh Fiction. I’m giving away a copy of His Mistletoe Bride, my Christmas-themed romance, and a copy of It Happened at Christmas, by my pal Debbie Mason. I’m also including an ARC of my next book, How to Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy, and a pretty ornament for your tree. Just pop over to Fresh Fiction to enter!
I’m so thrilled that Tall, Dark, and Royal, the next release in my Renegade Royals Series, is finally hitting the virtual shelves! This is Dominic Hunter’s story, and the guy has totally earned his HEA with his long lost love, Chloe Steele. Naturally, I’ve put a few more obstacles in his way to winning Chloe’s hand, but I feel sure Dominic will overcome!
I’m also thrilled at the great reviews the story has been getting. Here’s one from Fresh Fiction: “Although a novella, TALL DARK AND ROYAL could well be the most beautiful book of the year!”
Here’s more about Tall, Dark, and Royal:
He’s the man behind the mission to track down the illegitimate children of England’s Royal Princes and help them get their due. But his deepest desire is far more personal…
Magnificent and stubborn. Over twenty years apart had not changed Chloe Steele, or Dominic’s love for her. He’d been a street urchin, a boy raised at court, and finally a magistrate, yet he’d never belonged anywhere—except by her side. Now Chloe devoted herself to girls threatened by scandal—like she had been. But she was in danger, and Dominic was determined to help—and hopefully make up for lost time…
Even in childhood, Dominic had made Chloe feel safe. Now she also felt thrillingly flustered by the powerful man he’d become, and by the longing he inspired. Because Dominic meant not only to protect her, but to untangle the lies that had separated them. Yet for Chloe, surrendering to temptation may be easier than risking a future that could ruin them both…

See you around the blogosphere!
Historical romance fans, don’t you just love a good, juicy medieval romance? I do, which is why I’m particularly delighted to be featuring one of today’s best medieval romance authors on my blog. She’s Kris Kennedy, and she writes sweeping, adventurous and very sexy historical romance.
Kris burst onto the romance writing scene when she won the prestigious Golden Heart Award from the Romance Writers of America. Her first published book was The Conqueror, put out by Kensington Publishing, which received great reviews and was a Recommended Read from the influential romance blogger, Dear Author.
Her second book, The Irish Warrior, which was her Golden Heart manuscript, came out in 2010 to a whole boatload of acclaim.
And I do mean boatload! The Irish Warrior ended up on numerous top ten lists for the year – including The Romance Dish, Wendy the Super Librarian, and The Book Binge. It was a Desert Island Keeper from All About Romance and a Fresh Pick from Fresh Fiction. Whew! I’ve read every one of Kris’ books and I can tell you that the accolades are well deserved.
Luckily for her readers, Kris has a brand new book out. It’s called Deception, and it’s awesome (yep, I got to read this one early, too!). As expected, the reviews are great and the book has already earned a coveted 4-1/2 stars from RT Book Reviews and a Top Pick from Night Owl Reviews.
Now, Deception is not just the same old thing, and that’s one of it’s many strengths. Here’s how Kris explains her new book:
Deception isn’t your typical medieval romance. It’s less about knights and chases across the countryside, and more about cons. And dirty money. And the powerful men who want it, and what they’ll do to get it.
And of course, the person who will risk everything to stop them.
Oh, and Sexytimes. Lots of that.
I can vouch for the sexy times, folks! And I loved the fact that it was a medieval caper – one with a super cool and very hot hero. Here’s the blurb for Deception:
A dashing con man
Breaking and entering to reclaim her corrupt late father’s ledger comes surprisingly easily to Sophia Darnly. But is it mere coincidence that her misdeed unexpectedly reunites her with Kier, the outlaw lover who abandoned her years ago?
A lady skilled in trickery
Time has not erased Sophia from Kier’s heart, nor tamed her fiery spirit. She boldly insinuates herself into his plans. But Kier is on a mission of revenge, and can’t allow even the woman he once loved to stop him.
A game that could get them both killed
The danger mounts as they lure the leader of a powerful consortium who needs the fabled Darnly ledger—and all its damning details about the wealthiest merchants of England— to execute his nefarious plan. Their rekindled passion burns hot, but when they discover they too are the targets of a deadly deception, the fate of their love, and of England itself, lies in the balance.
Seriously, folks. If you love intrigue, adventure, and a smart heroine and a sexy hero, this is the book for you! No one writes medieval romance quite like Kris Kennedy.
For my readers today, Kris is giving away copies of her previous books, Defiant and The Irish Warrior. Let’s talk about thrillers and capers. What’s your favorite thriller or caper TV show, movie or book? Robin Hood? Mission Impossible? Let us know for a chance to win one of Kris’ fabulous books!
