  1. What a golden opportunity to provide the gift of romance, adventure, travel, or fantasy for Christmas! So much talent for so little!

    1. Right, Mike! Heck, if I hadn't read them all I would buy them all for myself! LOL I might do it anyhow just to have them all on my kindle. LOL

  2. Well hey, I'm gonna go get me some of these. I already bought most of them when they came out, but I see some I didn't get and I'm not passin' up this bargain for certain!

    1. At .99 and FREE, you can't pass up a deal like this! And such a great idea for gifts, too!

  3. Replies
    1. YES! So many good stories just waiting for those "bad weather" days ahead! And the price is right!

  4. We've got some amazing bargains here just in time for Christmas. I was encouraging our authors to talk about their books a little bit, so I'll talk about Sabrina's story in MAIL ORDER BRIDES FOR SALE: THE REMINGTON SISTERS. Livia and I, along with Kathleen Rice Adams, hatched this plan and asked Jacquie Rogers if she wanted to participate in a 4-book set about 4 sisters who were going to have to run as far as they could to get away from their stepfather, who they are almost certain murdered their mother and is just hanging around waiting for a chance to nab their inheritance money.

    My sister, Sabrina, was the youngest one of the 4 and pretty unsure of herself since she had 3 older sister who'd always watched over her. Anyone who is the youngest in the family can relate! LOL

    Sabrina really comes into her own when she has to select her own husband--and she doesn't choose the one that her oldest sister would have picked for her. Sabrina goes to Indian Territory and finds she has an inner strength she didn't know she had. I really did love her personality and the way all these stories meshed together and came to a final ending that was just perfect for all of them. Kathleen was not able to complete her story because of some health issues, but Celia Yeary stepped up to the plate and wrote Lola, the oldest sister, with Jacquie and Livia writing the others.

    For .99 you can't beat this set--these are all full-length stories, and I know you or someone on your Christmas list will enjoy them!

    1. This is a wonderful book. I read it when it first came out and loved all the sisters. Each was so different, as sisters would be but more so as each character was written by a different author. The twists and turns of each sister's life often took me completely by surprise. I treasure this book even more as it was the last work that our beloved friend Celia Yeary wrote.

    2. Yes, Linda. I don't know what we would have done without Celia. She was so great to step in for Kathleen, and I'm sure at the time she, too, was having her own health issues that perhaps she wasn't even aware of. I'm so glad she wrote this story and was part of this set. It means a lot to me.

  5. A fantastic deal and just in time for Christmas. I'm going to load up some of these bargains. Thanks, Cheryl and Livia.

    1. Jerry, with winter looming, this sale will sure come in handy to stock up on the reading material! And there are so many good books and sets!

  6. Hi, Cheryl! The Remington Sisters looks wonderful. I love connected stories by different authors. As fun to read as it is to write.
    My novella in One Christmas Knight, To Play with Cats was my first attempt at a medieval romance. I was so scared to write it, but I'm glad I pushed myself because it was fun to research and I do like these characters very much.
    Caterina Glanville is the youngest daughter of six daughters born to a minor noblemen. Her best hope of making a good match is at the earl's court where she is a lady in waiting to the earl's wife. Learning where her place is in the social hierarchy is stressful, made more so by the arrival of a handsome knight.
    Hugh DeLacy has just returned from the Crusades where he's developed a taste for the fine things he's seen in the East. Unfortunately as the second son of a baron, he's not in line to inherit and the Crusades has emptied his purse. When he sets his sights on a wealthy heiress and she seems immune to his charms, he develops a plan to make her jealous by flirting with her rival--Caterina.
    The clumsy, young lady stumbles into his arms as well as his heart. Will he give it all up for love? And will she have him once his plan is exposed?

    1. Patti, I loved that story. All the stories in ONE WINTER KNIGHT were wonderful and all so different! There's a lot we writers can do with ONE WINTER KNIGHT! LOL

      Thanks for your kind words about The Remington Sisters--we had so much fun working on that!

      Merry Christmas, Patti! So glad you stopped by and gave us some insights about your story!

  7. Just three days ago (December 12th), I wrote a blog article about my story A GIFT OF CHRISTMAS HOPE right here on the Prairie Rose Publications' blog. I shared bit of historical background, and I included an Excerpt. This is a spicy story to warm-up a cold wintry night *wink wink*.

    1. Kaye, that story of yours really touched my heart. Well, honestly, all your stories really touch my heart. And it was nice and spicy, for sure! GRIN!

      So glad you came by, and I hope readers will scroll back and read your blog post! Merry Christmas!
