In some ways, this year has gone by very slowly. In others, it has rushed by. I’m not sure I was ready for it to be December yet.

How about you?

Anyway, with the holidays right around the corner, let’s look at some excerpts from Gambler’s Folly! To begin with, let’s take a peek at the first book in the series, which gave its name to the series.

GAMBLER’S FOLLY is the first in a three book series—more to come in a while. Below is an excerpt from Chapter 1.

You can find Gambler’s Folly and the rest of the series at Amazon or at Smashwords.

And if you like merch associated with your books, check out my storefront on TeeSpring for totes, mugs, T-shirts and other items from the series and the books!

And for this weekend, the first Gambler’s Folly book will be on sale for $0.99–today through Monday morning!

Excerpt:

Trae wasn’t back yet and it was past time for dinner. Where was he? She slammed the brush down on the dressing table and dried her eyes, as anger overcame disappointment.

Wondering what to do, she heard the sound of his key card in the lock. “Where in the hell…” she began as Trae entered the room, followed by two well-built men in expensively tailored suits. “Trae, what’s going on? Who are these guys?”

“Hi, sweetheart. These men are associates of Mr. Leone. They’ve come to take you to him.”

“Take me to—Mr. Leone? The biggest mob boss on the planet?”

“Um, yeah. I kind of lost a bet. Sorry.”

“You lost a bet? What kind of bet? What have you done, Trae O’Brien?”

“Well, you won’t have to worry about the house anymore, or the car, or really anything. I lost all of it. Then, in order to get out from under that and a M1,000,000 debt, he insisted I put you on the table, as it were. Win or lose, one hand, and all my debts were gone. Just if I lost, he got you. And I lost. Sorry.”

“Sorry? Sorry?! You’re more than sorry, Trae. What the hell?” she shouted, as one of the impeccably dressed men took her arm.

“Come along, Mrs. O’Brien. Mr. Leone is waiting.”

“I’m not going anywhere with you. Get your hands off me!”

As she struggled with one man, the other one found her purse, and checked for her passport and papers. Speaking into what must have been a wrist communicator, man number two said, “We have the lady. Mr. O’Brien will be right down to sign the papers.”

“Papers? What papers, Trae?”

The older of the two men smiled and said, “The ones signing away his rights to you, love. Come along.”

“Trae? Trae!”

Downstairs, watching her husband sign away his debts, Karianna was numb. How could this even be legal? Did it matter when you were dealing with the mob?

Pushing the signed papers across the table, Trae said, “Well, that’s that I guess. You’re sure we’re good?”

“Mr. Leone was very clear about it. One hand, win or lose, all debts forgiven.”

“What about me?” Kari asked, in shock. “What am I supposed to do?”

The man in the shadows was quiet for a moment, and then said, “Go ahead and take her downstairs, to one of the special guest rooms. Mr. Leone will see her there and decide what to do with her.”

The man in the shadows was quiet for a moment, and then said, “Go ahead and take her downstairs, to one of the special guest rooms. Mr. Leone will see her there and decide what to do with her.”

Entering the elevator, one of her escorts used a pass card to select a private underground floor. From what she’d heard about the place, the lower-level suites were exclusive and outrageously expensive.

The suite they opened for her certainly bore that out. Stepping onto the lush carpet was like stepping onto a cloud. Hidden mood lighting around the perimeter of the ceiling lit the area evenly, while the trickling water in a small fountain created a gentle background sound. Live plants grew under specialized lights and the scent in the air was soothing.

“Just relax, have a drink if you wish. Mr. Leone will be here shortly,” one of the men told her. And then they were gone.

Turning back toward the door, Karianna tried the latch, just for the sake of trying. Locked. For all the creature comforts and beauty in the room, it was really just a cushy cell. But she didn’t intend to stay here any longer than she had to. Chances were good that, if she could reach the elevator, she could get back to the lobby. Usually pass cards were needed only to enter a floor, not to leave it. Now, what could she use as a weapon?

As the door opened, she tensed, ready to make her escape. Unfortunately, Mr. Leone had come prepared. The first bodyguard easily caught the floor lamp she swung at him and set it on the floor beside the door.

“Restraints,” she heard someone say. After a struggle with both bodyguards, Karianna found she was snugly restrained between two poles, clothes torn and disheveled. While she’d been looking over the room, she’d thought they were for in-room entertainment. She now saw they were equipped for hand and ankle restraints. Soft and cushioned, the restraints were nevertheless effective. Adjustable stops kept her from sliding the restraints up and down, holding her firmly in place, exactly as she was.

“Thank you, gentlemen,” she heard the voice say. It was a deep, dark, sensual voice which made her spine tingle. “We’ll be fine now.”

“Yes, Mr. Leone. Have a pleasant evening,” she heard one of the bodyguards answer. The door opened, closed, and she was alone with a man many had reason to fear.

It’s that time of year to curl up by the fire with a good book and something to drink and slip into another world for a while.

So what world will you be visiting?

MASTER OF THE FLEET is FREE this weekend at Smashwords!

Set in an alternate world where magic is just part of everyday life, Richard is Master of the Fleet for the family shipping firm. With his ability as a weather-shaper to control wind and water, he helps keep his ships safe out on the open seas.

But it will take more than magic to sort out his love life.

Go on over to Smashwords and pick up a copy of Master of the Fleet, and have a wonderfully cozy weekend.

EXCERPT

“After the events of the evening, I will allow this to stand under one condition.”

“And what is the condition, Your Excellency?” Richard was careful to keep his tone respectful.

“An oath which will keep her safe and make you her protector,” the baron replied. “Draw your dagger.”

Richard did as commanded, as the baron circled the table.

“Make a small cut on your hand and on the woman’s.”

“A blood oath, Your Excellency?”

“You question me?”

“No, Your Excellency.”

With the tip of the dagger, Richard made a nick in his hand, and its twin in Anne-Marie’s. Droplets of blood beaded up in their palms.

“Clasp hands,” the baron instructed them.

Over their joined hands, the baron traced arcane symbols in the air. Tingling magic swirled around their hands to bind the oath.

“By the mingling of your blood, do you, Anne-Marie, swear absolute loyalty and obedience to Lord Sir Richard LeMarnier, on pain of death, for as long as you shall live?”

 She was crying and shaking so hard Richard wasn’t sure how she was still upright.

“I do so swear,” she replied through the tears.

“And Lord Sir Richard LeMarnier, do you swear to spare her life and guard her, as her sworn protector, for as long as she lives?”

“I do so swear.”

“You will remain together, blood-bound, for as long as the oath shall stand, neither one leaving the other, nor causing harm, one to the other. Breaking the conditions set forth will bring forth the penalty. The oath can be revoked before death by the skills of a baron only. Take heed.”

He motioned for someone to bring a moist towel so they could clean their hands.

 Clearing his throat, Richard said, “If you will send someone for a priest, Your Excellency, I will take this woman as my wife tonight.”

His Grace looked startled and asked, “What priest will marry you under the circumstances?”

“I think he would rather we be married than not,” Lord Richard replied. “I doubt if Anne-Marie will object. Priest or not, she will be mine this evening. Wife or whore, I care not which. Either way, she will please me well. Her life is mine to use as I see fit. If it matters to you, fetch a priest.”

“It’s your life. So be it.”

That’s right!

Another book of mine will be FREE this weekend over at Smashwords!

I know a lot of us don’t have a lot to spend on books right now, after the Covid outbreak. So during this month, I’ve decided to offer one of my books fro free each weekend.

Which book will it be this week?

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man Book 3 from Esperance!

I don’t know. There’s something about this story which makes it my favorite of all my published books. Inset into the story of Jareth and Viviane, this book tells about Morgan, a young lady who volunteered to come to Brannach during the Choosing in Belfort. (See Book 1–Jareth, First Lord)

After being molested during most of her life, she’s ready for a new start. But almost as soon as she gets settled into her new clan, she is attacked yet again.

Since then, she has sworn off men. Until she meets James with his devilish green eyes and dimples.

Can she open her heart to this man, who has secrets of his own?

Go over this weekend and get your FREE copy of MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man.

I know I do. And I’ll bet you do, too. With the whole Covid thing this year, I know people don’t have a lot of extra cash to throw around.

Which is why I started having one of my books for FREE each weekend. This weekend it is The Russian, Book 3 in the Gambler’s Folly Series.

So, who is The Russian?

Meet Dmitri ivanovich Volkov. Over 500 years old, this wolf shifter doesn’t want a mate. He’d had a soulmate two centuries ago and when she’d died,she’d taken his heart to the grave with her.

Danni isn’t looking for a relationship either. She has her work and her mother to take care of. There is no time for dating.

But Mother Nature has other plans for the two of them on Gambler’s Folly.

And it FREE at Smashwords this weekend.

You can check out the rest of the series while you’re there, or look up the other series and my stand alone under the name Sultonna Nadine. Click on this link to go to my profile page.

Wishing you all the best and happy reading!

Which book of mine is on sale this weekend? I’ll give you a hint. It’s one of the Gambler’s Folly Series books.

Though from the weather we’ve been having, I’m not so sure. This has to be the wettest August we’ve had here in a while. Normally by now, the rain has tapered off and everything is getting ready to harvest.

So what’ s new here?

I’ve finished the first draft and first edit on Whiskey Jug Genie, and I’m really liking the story. Which I suppose sounds odd. But sometimes, once I’ve finished a book, I read it through and think, yeah, it’s okay. But I’m not thrilled.

While the story needs tweaking, I like it overall.

I’ve also done another edit on several other books–two for the Gambler’s Folly Series and one for Esperance. So watch for those coming up soon. I think the next series book will be Too Many Talents, from Esperance. It continues Viviane and Jareth’s story from Book 2 and brings in Connell, the new heir of Belfort.

Now who is Connell?

Viviane’s sister Alice’s son, who has been chosen to replace Carl as the heir to her home clan is the co-protagonist in this story. At almost eleven, Connell isn’t sure he wants to be First Lord. Nor does he understand why he needs Talents to begin with, let alone why he has to work so hard to train them.

Don’t forget, each weekend one of my books will be on sale over at Smashwords for $0.99. This week I will choose one from Esperance. You can go to my Author Page, scroll down to Esperance for the series page and find the one on sale.

Sale begins tonight and goes through Monday morning.

Happy Friday to you all. And I wish you a wonderful weekend.

And as always–

Don’t Forget to Share the Romance…
