This month, the Jewels of Historical Romance are celebrating June weddings in our Salon on Facebook – which is a group you can join right here. As part of that celebration, we’re having a 99-cent book sale this week (June 16 – 22) You’ll fine The Countess along with more books by my Jewel sisters, discounted just for this sale.
Don’t forget! The Princess, book 1 of my Bride Quest series of medieval romances is free through June 22.
Yesterday, there was a BookBub Featured Deal for The Princess, and the book soared up the charts! This morning, it’s #1 in Medieval Romance at Amazon and #2 overall Free in the Kindle store.
Interestingly enough, the results are similar at Apple – The Princess is #2 overall free in the Apple store, and #2 in Romance. (And Rachael Herron has the number 1 spot over there too!)

Princess Brianna of Tullymullagh is determined to marry only for love—until her father’s holding is conquered and the king decrees that she must wed one of the victor’s sons. Thinking she can outwit this condition, Brianna issues a challenge: the son who brings her a gift that makes her laugh will win her hand.
Thus begins the Bride Quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin.
Burke and Rowan, knights both, ride out on Brianna’s quest, each intent upon triumph. Only Luc refuses to participate, for he knows that a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior like himself. Brianna is not inclined to accept his refusal—she tempts him and awakens his slumbering senses with her alluring beauty and her sweet kisses. Luc has sworn to lay down his sword forever—until he is the sole one who can defend the fair maiden who has claimed his shielded heart.

I have a sale booked this month, and it’s started a little sooner than I’d expected. That’s all good! You can save on The Bride Quest, starting today, through June 22.
The Princess is book one in the Bride Quest series of medieval romances and it’s free at all portals now! This story is set in Ireland and features the challenge issued by a princess to the three knights vying for her hand. Brianna doesn’t intend to marry any of them, but Luc defies her every expectation…
The Heiress, book two of the Bride Quest, is on sale for $2.99 US or equivalent. This is a fun story, with a heroine in disguise (she’s a hidden heiress) and a rogue of a hero who discovers the meaning of love.
The Countess is book four in the Bride Quest and it’s on sale for 99 cents. This story takes the series to Scotland, when Eglantine tries to give her daughters the opportunity to marry for love. She’s not expecting to be challenged by a highlander, much less to lose her own heart.
The Beauty, book two of the Bride Quest, is on sale for $2.99 US or equivalent. Jacqueline is kidnapped on her way to a convent by an embittered knight bent on revenge. This is a story of mistaken identity and the healing power of love.
The Temptress, book two of the Bride Quest, is on sale for $2.99 US or equivalent. Everything has always come easily to Bayard, a handsome knight, but his intended bride gives him a challenge – and proves to be a lot more intriguing than he’d expected.
The sale is available to consumers in the US, CA, UK, IR, AU and NZ.
You’ll find both Kiss of Fire, which is book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels, and The Crusader’s Bride, which is book #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia, among the titles offered. You don’t need a download code – the books are just free in the included territories.
Both books are discounted to 99c internationally at Amazon, and it is possible that Amazon will match the free price in some territories.
The sale goes until March 5, so don’t miss out!
Yesterday, I had a BookBub Featured Deal for The Beauty Bride, the first book in my Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances. The Beauty Bride has been free since its last BBFD, last April, so yesterday’s results were a pleasant surprise.
This is where we started yesterday morning:
The Beauty Bride was already on the Scottish and Medieval romance lists, at #17 on both of them.
BookBub emails tend to go out to subscribers around or before 9 AM eastern. Here’s where we stood at 1:30:
The Beauty Bride had jumped to #1 in Medieval and #2 in Scottish as well as #26 overall free in the Kindle store.
By 5:30, it had reached its highest point, #17 overall free in the Kindle store, as well as #1 in both Medieval Romance and in Scottish Romance.
This morning, it’s sticking at #19 overall free in the Amazon store, as well as #1 in both Medieval romance and Scottish romance:
Over at Apple, The Beauty Bride is #9 overall free in the store:
It’s also #5 free in Romance at the Apple store:
What a nice suite of results!
If you downloaded a copy, thank you! If you haven’t downloaded a copy yet, The Beauty Bride will be free until Sunday, February 24. I think it’s time for this one to go back to being a paid title.
