Free, Free, Free! Christmas presents to everyone from my publisher! =D

Starting today, Courage and Retribution is available free along with a number of other novellas from Desert Breeze authors. It is a prequel to my novel Kidnapped, and I hope you will enjoy it.

William Reynolds agrees to hide a family of refugees, fleeing from the oppressive and all knowing Alliance. He's not worried; he's finally standing up for a good cause, and what's the worst thing that could happen?

Many other free books are already available - like works of Gail R. Delaney, Stephanie Burkhart, and J. Morgan, to mention a few. Along with mine comes several new freebees, just in time for Christmas, and there should be something for everyone.

Take a look, all these goodies are just waiting for someone to curl up with them in a cozy spot:

Adri's plan to leave Boon is halted when survivors appear with the news the other settle-ments have been destroyed. Their arrival is closely followed by the fire breathing dragons who line up to attack.

Uncovering the Secret by Michelle Sutton

Bojan keeps a secret from his wife that might destroy her trust in him before their extended honeymoon in Europe even begins.


  1. Maria, I spent hours today looking for the answer to your sentence on NOR scavenger hunt. I found every answer but yours. I searched your site, Amazon, Google (searched every suggestion on first four pages), read excerpts. I'm stumped. Can you give me a clue where to find the answer, I.e. blog, website, etc.

  2. Absolutely, just lemme check what the question is...
    Oh, that's a sneaky one. You'd have to go to the page for Undercover, either through clicking its cover and "link," or where it says information, go to the Undercover blurb and click on the cover to reach the book's page. I should probably move that to a place easier to find for the duration of the contest...


A new look for the 250th anniversary
