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.”

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!

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…

Book 2 in the Gambler’s Folly series, this book begins where Book 1 left off. Dam and Kari travel to Earth with their friends to have the big wedding his family wants.

Included in the wedding party are Marco, Paul, and Dante, Dam’s best friends and colleagues from Gambler’s Folly.

Panther shifter, Dante, was born on Gambler’s Folly and this is his first time leaving it. And he’s leaving to go to his boss’s and good friend’s wedding.

Why does his friend have all the luck? Money, power, and now a soulmate. Would Dante ever find someone to share his life? Why did he get so tongue-tied around the fairer sex?

And then he meets Angela and his mouth has a mind of its own.
Be careful what you wish for…


DANTE’S ANGEL

Now that The Russian is live on Amazon and Smashwords as an ebook, it’s time to get it and a couple others ready for paperback. What with my husband’s knee surgery in January, things have been a little busy to deal with the aggravation of formatting.

And then?

I think I’ll spend some time to finish a couple other books I have nearly finished, but set aside to get The Russian published and out to the world.

There is Whiskey Jug Genie, my 2019 NanNoWriMo project, which is nearly finished–as far as a first draft. In this Sultonna Nadine book, a London herbalist tours the American Southeast and buys an old whiskey jug, not realizing it was inhabited. When he releases the genie in his living room, the fun begins.

Then there is Lady Calloway, another Sultonna Nadine offering, set in an alternate timeline of Victorian England. She’s a small town girl from up North. He works for the church down in London and comes from a family of confessors–psychically gifted people who can bring any sinner to confession, no matter the cost.

And then there is Protector of the Red Dragon, from Sultonna Nadine. A fantasy set partially in modern times and partially in the 16th century, it combines fantasy, romance, and a touch of magic to usher in an era of peace and prosperity involving twin sisters, a magical sword, and a dragon.

While that’s all happening, Mistaken Identity is with my editor going through the initial edits. This is another stand alone from Sultonna Nadine. Captured in a brief military strike against her world from their sister planet, Krista is mistaken for someone she’s not. By the time her captors are convinced of the truth, the commander of the facility has hatched a plan with her at its core. Can she learn enough fast enough to help bring off a plan which will benefit both worlds, without losing her life, or heart, in the process?

And then there are the other books in the Esperance and Gambler’s Folly Series to finish editing. A couple need finishing as well. And some are waiting to be written, with a new idea popping up earlier this morning.

So it looks like it will be a busy year here on the farm. The Monster and Miss Kitty have settled in to give me a hand, so we’re all set.

Have a marvelous week, and if you haven’t checked out The Russian, to over and take a peek. He’s one of my favorite characters, and his mate is a feisty little she-wolf you’ll adore.

For what?

The Russian!

Release date is January 24 and it is available for pre-order at both Amazon and Smashwords!

What is The Russian?

This is the Book 3 from Gambler’s Folly, following Gambler’s Folly and Dante’s Angel.

Gambler’s Folly is a pleasure world, where you can find just about anything you’d like. Do you love life in the fast lane, the city lights, and casinos? Check out Speranza, the capital city.

Beaches? Go to Black Sands or Piaggia Sole.

There is year round skiing as well as mountain cabins and fresh air.

Added to this background are my casts of characters, shifters who work for one of Interpol’s special departments. They help track down contraband and a host of other things that come their way.

But one thing they don’t have to look for is romance. Several of our people have found their soul mates here, with more coming to join their ranks.

If you haven’t read the first two books, go on over to Amazon or Smashwords and check them out. Then you’ll be ready for The Russian!

Gambler’s FollyA pleasure world where the games are dangerous and the stakes are high.

It’s another Friday, the first full week of the New Year. How is everyone today?

My husband had a total knee replacement on New Year’s Eve, so things have been a little strange around here. But he’s doing well, up and around, mostly off his painkillers.

And I have a book to get out to all of you! I’m waiting for the final edits so I can get it formatted and then out to you!

I’ve told you a little about Dmitri, the Russian. But have I told you anything about the woman who steals his heart?

Danielle, Danni to her friends, is a young, petite blond with hazel eyes. She does pretty well working in the accounting department of Gambler’s Folly’s Interpol. But she can’t quite get enough together to find a place big enough so she and her mother can move in together. And expenses keep growing.

Her mother lives in a bad part of town, in the place she and Danni’s father had lived since they’d moved to Gambler’s Folly. But then the syndicate bought everything all around, and now owned the building her apartment was in.

Danni visited her mother every evening after work, and was always nervous walking home. She had to find a way to get her mother out of there.

And then her fears came to visit one night. On her way home, just as the sun was going down, a group of gang member surrounded her on the dark, empty street. In her heart of hearts, she knew she was going to die, until she felt warm, strong hands on her shoulders, and heard a stern voice telling the young men to disperse.

Watch for The Russian at Amazon and at Smashwords!

Wishing you all the very best New Year!
