Germanic Audiobook narrated by Nicola Casey

How do you cope with a life you are bored with?  You make a new one, right?  Be careful what you wish for because you might get a whole lot more than you bargained for….
 
When you’re bored with your current life, take a trip; that always changes things, right?  What Analisa Meunier didn’t realize is that every decision you make in your life can change everything.  A new life, a new country, a new family, a new threat to all of that…will she survive?  Will they?
 
Baroness Lydia Von Horn has never met an American like Analisa Meunier.  Hiding her own identity leads to problems in their initial relationship, but making a family, a life, and surviving with both intact is the real challenge.
 
From Oconomowoc, Wisconsin to Hammerbruke, Germany; from Cambria, California, to Munich, Germany, their lives and trials and tribulations take them around the world.

This book was especially poignant to me, please let me know if you can figure out why? Listening to the audiobook I actually cried. I hope it affects you the same way. Available through my website here.

Small Town Angel ~ Audiobook

Small Town Angel

Small towns are notorious for secrets … but what if you bring your secrets with you?

Amy Adams arrives in Northpoint, Wisconsin on a Greyhound bus.  Small towns are well known for not taking to strangers, but THIS stranger decides to stay.

Amy has a look around and to her, it ‘feels’ like home. She rents a cabin in the woods outside of town and proceeds to look for a place to open a store.  Renting to own from one of the locals, she soon finds herself making friends and making waves.  She won’t discuss where she is from and has nothing to say about her past.

People are extremely curious. This Southern Belle has them talking.

Abby Shipman, the Chief of Police in this neck of the woods, is intrigued by the decidedly mysterious and straight redheaded whirlwind that has blown into town. It’s strange that she won’t talk about her past, and she is certainly uncomfortable around Abby … or is it cops in general?

A Woman Down Under Series

A Woman Down Under Series Mock up 3Something the fans have said (and I do listen) is that they hate to wait for a new book in a series to come out.  Once their interest is engaged, they want to know what is going to happen in the next part of the series, right away, not to have to wait.  Well, that’s where this series is a little different.  These are the first four in what I hope will become a fantastic and captivating series for my fans, new and old, to follow.

See, not only is this series new, but it takes place in about the 1850’s of Australia, in the Outback and is told by four different women from their perspective.  No, it isn’t the same story told four different times, but rather their stories told from their points of view and what happens to them.

You can buy any of these and read them in any order too, which I thought might be a plus, another thing that readers sometimes worry about, did they get all of them in the series, are they in order.

* I’m releasing them on the same day, so you don’t have to wait.

* I’m releasing them as novellas, in paperback, on the same day too!

* I’m releasing them on Kindle Unlimited, something I haven’t done in ages, so you can get them potentially for free if you have joined their program.

If you aren’t on Kindle Unlimited, and that is okay, they are only $4.99 *US and really for under $5 you can’t believe the adventure you are about to embark upon!

I really want people to try out my writings, some who might not have read my historical romances before.  Also, my current fans will have this new and awesome series to enjoy as they already know I write detailed and dramatic stories.

So don’t wait, pre-order your copy today from Amazon!

Btw, there are more already written and waiting to come out, but, one at a time, okay?  It’s making my editor’s hair turn gray!  Lol.  I have been working on this for a while because I wanted to try this concept of releasing the series all at once.

Only these first four will be on Kindle Unlimited, the rest, as they are available will come out normally (for me) and randomly and be available on all the platforms.

Enjoy!

Sayyida ~ Audiobook

Sayyida Audible book.jpg

Sayyida, variously known as a pirate queen, Queen of the Western Seas, or Queen of Tétouan was a REAL and HISTORICAL figure, but not much is known of her.

Sayyida married young, just sixteen, at the insistence of her father.  Her first husband was thirty years older and a friend of her father’s.  Al-Mandri sensed his bride’s intelligence and taught her about his business affairs and diplomacy.  Together, the couple rebuilt Tétouan, which had been destroyed by the Reconquista, and when her husband died in 1515, she became the Governor or Queen of Tétouan in her own right. 

Later, Sayyida was pursued by the King of Fes, Ahmed al-Wattsi, and accepted his marriage proposal, but on her terms: he had to travel to her kingdom to marry her, not the other way around.

Sayyida’s love of the high seas and her appetite for battle and conquest often clash with her duties as wife, mother, and queen.  As hardworking as she is, Sayyida feels an emptiness in her life.  Will Aya, her new slave, silence this longing?  Join us as this fictional version of a real woman takes you into her world and captures your heart….

Really enjoyed this book, couldn’t put it down and read it in one night.

I could relate to Alyssa on so many levels and wished so many times growing up that I had the nerve to stand up to my family in the way that she did.

No idea what I’m talking about, well then you’re just going to need to read the book for yourself!

Fiona reminds me of the vet’s I worked for whilst studying in the UK, strong, independent, determined and workaholics!

If you enjoy reading about strong female characters who overcome various obstacles and adversities thrown their way then this is definitely the book for you.

The characters are well developed, the storyline flows naturally with no unnecessary sex scenes, there’s romance and intimacy as needed but not heaped on as is the case with some f/f books these days. There’s plenty of drama and gun toting city girls turned country vet / cow girl to keep you reading all night as I did.

I’m hoping there is a follow on book from this one!

I loved the scene in the cafe where the two main characters entered into their partnership, and, how their love turned into something that would surely stand the test of time. Personally, there’s nothing sexier than a barefoot gal in shorts, and a tee, with a rifle over her shoulder, a pistol strapped to her waist and the willingness to use both to protect those, and the things she loves. Great story. Highly recommend!!

I bought this cause I liked the cover, well I have to say what a great read, makes you laugh in places, the two main characters have excellent chemistry, even as good action and I’m not talking about sex. All in all I have no problem recommending this book too my friends. Another great story from K’Anne.

Characters are very real and easy to see in the mind’s eye. The families are similar to my own as is the finding the one person that will stand by you no matter what. Well written. Makes for a lovely evening with a bottle of wine.

I really loved reading this book! At first I wasn’t sure about the main character, she seemed very spoiled, but as I began to read the story I began to like both of the characters. The author does a great job of telling their story and she doesn’t follow a predictable path with the plot. It is refreshing to find a story that is a little different and keeps you guessing about what might happen next. I really liked this story!

27 Years ago TODAY!

How many of you can say you remember what you were doing that many years ago?  I do.  That was a rather rough week.  I was suffering from the flu, in and out of the hospital all week only to go back for more hydration in the form of an I.V. drip.  My doctor was sick of seeing me.

27 years ago today was a Thursday, and I remember it so vividly because of what happened that evening.  Since I’d been so ill, I had to be ‘careful’ about what I ate.  I felt so good that day that I craved lasagna.  A favorite still.  So, we got Stouffers and I got my lasagna.  Well, a few hours later I began to have stomach pains.  Chock it up to too much too soon?  Or should I mention I also happened to be very, very pregnant at the time?  When my husband at the time (Hey, yes I AM a lesbian NOW, but I was young and stupid and trying heterosexuality)….said, how do you tell the difference between flu cramps and being in labor?   Well, I was 23 at the time and I’d already had a baby so of course I knew it all!  That’s what I told him, I would KNOW!  Well, when those flu cramps got five minutes apart, he called the doctor.  I told them, I didn’t mind going into the hospital just as long as I didn’t miss my favorite show which was due on that night.  Those were the days when you had to wait the entire season to see what you missed in one night for a rerun…if you got that!  At the time my favorite show was L.A. Law…hello Susan Dey anyone?2120587  Well, I got my wish.  They got me into a room and I refused to contribute ANYTHING to the delivery of my son until I could watch the entire episode.  How’s that for a devoted fan?

A few hours later I was willing to get that baby out of me and I cooperated.  Not bad!  I think I’ll keep him.  Happy Birthday Andrew!  (He’s given the name I would have been given had I been a boy).  Btw, I’m STILL trying to lose that baby fat!
