Romance: Trysts Collection Paperback Available

I finally completed the paperback version of the Romance: Trysts compilation.

This anthology combines all four Romance: Trysts stories in a single book.  The ebook has been available for a while, but I hadn’t taken the time to get the paperback formatted. I went ahead and did that this weekend.

If you haven’t read the series yet, check out the first short story in the series for FREE. Dr. Carter & Mrs. Sinn, the first and shortest story in the series, is available free at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Kobo and Apple.

Of the four stories in the compilation, my favorite is Tristan & Blair, which is a great little story about love at first sight. It’s probably my favorite because it reminds me of something that happened in my real life.  I remember, when my daughter was little, just about 3, she was with me in the store, sitting in the shopping cart, and this little boy, who was a tad older, maybe 5 or 6  was just staring at her, so intently, as she was the loveliest thing he’d ever seen. As if he were committing her to memory, and I thought as I walked away, wouldn’t it be interesting for someone to fall in love with a girl they just saw as a child and years later still remember.  Tristan & Blair isn’t quite as straightforward as that, as there’s a sister involved. But, I do like this notion that we can feel a connection with someone after one viewing, and we can forge ahead with this vision of who they are, of what they are, even if it’s not entirely true.

Anyway, I’ve gone off on a tangent, so to get back on track, Romance: Trysts (Volumes 1-4) is available in paperback at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

P.S. As an aside, the incident with my daughter happened while we were traveling, so it seems unlikely that the smitten six year old will find her again.

Some New Images

I’m busy toiling away on the next book in my passion-filled fairy tales series, Dream Trysts.  In the meantime, however, I’ve taken a moment to create a couple of images for Pinterest. I thought I’d share them here, in case you don’t get to Pinterest.

I hope you enjoy.

Tristan and Blair available at Multiple Retailers

trysts3tristanblairredlipsHappy Monday to you.

I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know that Romance: Trysts No. 3, Tristan & Blair is now available at multiple online retailers. Previously, it had been an Amazon exclusive. Now, it’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and the iTunes store.

I redid the covers of all the shorts in the series to add just a splash of color to them. If you haven’t read No. 3, be sure to check it out individually, or you can grab the entire boxed set (Volumes 1-4).

Nikki and Mike available at several retailers now.

trysts2nikkiandmikeContrastJust a quick note to let you know that Romance: Tryst No. 2 Nikki & Mike has moved out of Kindle Unlimited and is now at several retailers, including Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Apple.  The book is just 99 cents, and is the second book in the Romance: Trysts series. Book one in the series, Dr. Carter & Mrs. Sinn, is free on all platforms.

The book had been exclusively at Amazon so it could be part of the Kindle Unlimited program, but the Romance: Trysts series isn’t thriving there, so I’m going to move the entire thing out, as the 90-day Select term ends. I’m also going to be creating a compilation of all 4 books in the series that will be cheaper than buying the three separately. Look for the compilation to be completed by the end of the month.

Summer is Getting Away From Me

pool-690034_1280Happy hump day to you. I have no idea why I so often write to you on hump day.  (Some psychologist or psychiatrist out there could probably offer up some decent theories, I’m sure.)

Anyway, jut wanted to write a quick check-in blog post to say, Hello, and let you know I’m sending Jack & Brenda to the editor tomorrow. I went on vacation to my family reunion for a week, and have had trouble getting back into the swing of things, so I do apologize. However, my kids are in camp this week, and it’s my hope to finish the first edit of my Cinderella re-telling, so that tale can get further on the path to publication.

In other news, I’ve changed my free perk for mailing list subscribers. If you sign up for the list, you can get a free electronic copy of The Princess, the Pea and the Night of Passion.  That’s a great intro into the Passion-Filled Fairy Tales series. It’s received great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up for the mailing list here (instructions on getting your free ebook follow the signup process).

That’s about it for me today. How about you? Is your summer going well? Are you getting things done or are all the vacations making it hard for you to tick stuff off the To Do list?

May your love continue to bloom.

Dr. Carter and Mrs. Sinn Free through Friday

trysts1DrCarterSinncoupleContrastHappy hump day to you.

Appropos to the day, I’ve decided to make the first short in the Romance: Trysts series free June 24-26. It’s a great introduction to the series, even though it’s a bit shorter than the remainder stories in the series.

Romance: Trysts are all fun, flirty and sexy.  I’m putting the book trailer below and you’re welcome to pick up the book FREE from Amazon over the next couple of days. I hope you’ll go ahead and check out the remaining shorts in the series, too.

Tryst No. 3 – Tristan and Blair — has arrived

trysts3tristanblaircontrastHappy Thursday to you. Just a quick note to let you know that the third book in the Trysts series is out. I published Romance: Trysts No. 3 – Tristan and Blair today

I must say, this is probably my absolute favorite of this series so far. With any luck, you guys will love it as much as I do. I’ve written the fourth book  in the series, and I’m going to take a couple of weeks to get it into tip-top shape before publishing it. I also have to create a cover. My goal is to put No. 4 out that first week  of July. I initially called it Felicia & Jack, but I think I’m opting for Jack & Ginger, instead. The fifth book is the series is called Felicity & Oliver, and I thought the two F-heroines in a row would look odd.

Anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I’m going to actually take a break for the weekend because my children will finally be out of school and I need some time to decompress.

Tata for now.

May your love stay in bloom,

RB

Romance: Trysts No. 2 – Nikki and Mike is available!

The second book in the Romance: Trysts series published last night. I want to thank those who already checked it out. I published it last night on Amazon, mentioned it on a couple of Goodreads groups, and woke up this morning to several borrows and a sale. So, WooHoo! The book is an Amazon exclusive at the moment and available for FREE borrow if you’re in Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited. It sells for 99 cents, if you’re not able to borrow it.

trysts2nikkiandmikeContrastTrysts are short, sexy, scintillating stories that have a happy ever after or happy for now ending. Each story is individual, but characters from previous trysts appeaer in other ones. Porter is a character in Nikki & Mike, and we’ll see him again in Tryst No. 6: Felicity & Oliver. Marissa, whom we saw in Tryst No. 1, we’ll see again, briefly in Tryst No. 3. Anyway. Here’s a description of Nikki & Mike.

Nikki is a good girl who tries to follow the straight and narrow path. But, when a breakup turns her life haywire, Nikki decides it’s time not just to be good, but to be good to herself.

Enter Mike, a handsome stranger with farm boy charms and a rocking body. Can he give Nikki what she’s been missing recently?

In this hot and steamy tale, Mike and Nikki find each other and a little something else, too.

You can borrow (if in KU or Amazon Prime) or buy Romance:Trysts No. 2 – Nikki and Mike on Amazon.

New Reviews!

bb_cover_normalskin2Beauty and Her Beastly Love received a great review over on Big Als and Pals blog.

Here’s a quote from the review:

“I think I enjoyed this one even more than The Princess and the Pea, and I really loved it. This retelling stays pretty close to the original version of Beauty and the Beast, however it is the added story that makes it so great.”

Isn’t that lovely? I’m just pleased as punch.

trysts1DrCarterSinncoupleContrastAlso, Romance: Trysts No. 1 received it’s first review. Four stars and lovely. It’s on Amazon.

On a final note, The Princess, the Pea and the Night of Passion is no longer exclusive to Amazon. I’m trying it on Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple for the next few weeks to see how it fares (should be at all venues by Tuesday, June 2). If I find I don’t really sell anything in those other venues, I’ll return the book to Kindle exclusivity, which allows it to participate in the Kindle Unlimited program.

Romance: Trysts have begun

trysts1DrCarterSinncoupleContrastHappy Tuesday to you all. I hope you had a great holiday weekend. Mine was fun and filled with travel. Heard the most awesome true love story ever. Really. A friend in her late 70s happened to tell us the story of the first time she saw her husband ( he was older than her, so she was just 13 at the time) and she told her twin sister that he was the handsomest man she’d ever seen. He had wavy blond hair, blue eyes, and a gray shirt and blue jeans. It was amazing the detail she remembered (they were married 40+ years; and he died more than a decade ago). Every time she speaks of him, her face just lights up. True love. In real life. That is lovely, I think.  Anyway, that may have planted a seed in my mind for a story.

I just thought I’d formally announce that the Trysts series I mentioned earlier is out, at least the first installment. These stories tend to be more erotic in nature than my other series, but still have the air of romance about them. The first in the series, Dr. Carter and Mrs. Sinn is a touch shorter than the others, which is why I thought I’d start the series with it. Though, it’s not as romantic as the others, so maybe it wasn’t a good choice. (I hate second-guessing myself).

Anyway, the plan is to release one every two to three weeks. The next two in the series are completed, and undergoing some edits now. I hope to have Tryst No. 2, Nikki and Mike up and out in early June. This is a great series for Kindle Unlimited subscribers, because it’s several short, quick reads that should leave you smiling satisfactorily when they’re over. (You may even want a cigarette 😉 ). I made a book trailer for Dr. Carter & Mrs. Sinn. I’ll stick that at the end. Also, a quick note that Beauty and Her Beastly Love is on sale, for just 99 cents this week. It’s part of a Kindle Countdown Deal so the price will tick back up on its ow accord at week’s end.
