In April, I’ll be moving most of my historical romances into KDP Select. This means that if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you’ll be able to read them free.
It also means that they will be available exclusively at Amazon. In fact, my books have already started to be removed from the other portals. My plan is that they’ll be available in Kindle Unlimited for at least a year, and that they’ll be enrolled by April 15.
What books will be affected? Well, my time travel romances are already enrolled in KDP Select.
All of the Ravensmuir books will be included: The Rogues of Ravensmuir, The Jewels of Kinfairlie, The True Love Brides and The Brides of Inverfyre.
The Bride Quest books will all be included.
The two Rogues & Angels books will be included.
Unicorn Bride and Pearl Beyond Price will be included.
The Champions of St. Euphemia will be included.
The Brides of North Barrows Regency romances are the exception – they will remain available at all portals.
That’s 31 individual books plus a number of series boxed sets. I’ll also be republishing some of my boxed sets, like Kinfairlie Knights, at Amazon only in April.
Finally, this means that there will no longer be a free bundle bonus for newsletter subscribers. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter and downloaded that free 3-book bundle, you might want to do that now.

Some of my books have come out of KDP Select and are back in wide distribution.
An Elegy for Melusine is one of them. This is a retelling of a medieval fairy tale and also linked to the DragonFate series – Mel and the ghost Raymond are characters in that series.
Coven of Mercy is a short story, also available at all portals again. This story introduces Micah and Rosemary, as well as the Coven of Mercy itself. They all appear in DragonFate, too.
Beguiled, a collection of short stories, is available in wide distribution again. It had to be taken down because two of the stories included in it were enrolled in KDP Select.
I’ve enrolled my time travel romances in KDP Select, which means that you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. It also means that these four books and the bundle, Timeless Loves, are available exclusively at Amazon through the end of September.
Once Upon a Kiss
The Last Highlander
Love Potion #9
One Knight Enchanted, which is book #1 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances, will be finishing its run in Kindle Unlimited on April 15. After that, it will be available at all portals.
If you are a KU subscriber, don’t miss your chance to read this book free!
Cursed to take the form of the wolf by day, Rolfe de Viandin is skeptical that love can save him. All he wants is to return home from crusade by the Yule and even the pleasures of a magical palace cannot console him…until a beautiful and bold maiden arrives at his gates, seeking sanctuary, and Rolfe’s hope is restored.
Hunted in the forest, Annelise de Sayerne has to surrender her desire to wed for love, as the price of entering the only refuge is marriage to its enigmatic lord. She fears he must be a monster, but once she experiences his kindness, Annelise resolves to find love with her new husband—if she can just claim his heart.
Even as Rolfe is beguiled by his bride and Annelise unravels his secrets, a spurned suitor pursues Annelise, determined to claim her legacy at any price. If Rolfe’s curse is not broken, how can he defend his beloved wife from the villain? Will their future be lost before it is truly won—or will Rolfe be convinced of the power of love in time?

As you might recall, I decided to enroll a lot of my books in Kindle Unlimited last August as an experiment. It’s gone reasonably well, but the time has come for this experiment to end. One of the things that feeds success in KU is the regular addition of new content into the program. I’m not publishing a new title every month, which is what seems to work best, and my new titles are being released in wide distribution when they are published instead of into KU. Given this, it turns out the program isn’t an ideal fit for me. I’m glad I tried it and I hope I found some new readers, but it’s time to go back to wide distribution. (Do I hear a cheer from the Nook readers? I think I do! LOL!)
KU requires a 90 day enrollment period, so it will take a few months for everything to come out of the program and be made available again elsewhere. I’ll update the interiors and upload the books again at each portal. It’ll be under the same ISBN, so if you bought any book before, you’ll be able to download the updated version free. I’ll post when each series is updated at the other portals and the links are here on the site. Here’s a rough schedule, although in each series I have one book that will be early or late.
One Knight Enchanted – goes wide in April
The Jewels of Kinfairlie – goes wide in early May
The True Love Brides – goes wide in late May
The Champions of St. Euphemia – goes wide in late May
(The Crusader’s Bride is already out of KU and will go wide this week.)
The Rogues of Ravensmuir – goes wide in June
The Bride Quest II – goes wide in late June
The Bride Quest I – goes wide in July
