1. Heather Gray’s “Jackal”
“Jackal” is the second book in Ms. Gray’s Regency Refuge series. It’s available for purchase on Kindle and Nook for 99c! Don’t you just love the cover?!

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “When tragedy strikes, Juliana and her family must flee their home. Can they persuade a virtual stranger to help them? Juliana isn’t so sure, especially after their chaperone threatens to cane him. Even as Juliana struggles to trust him, she finds herself drawn to this mysterious man. Surely all she wants from him is refuge…”

2. Sarah Norkus’ “Treasure of the Battersea Bluffs”
Ms. Norkus is back on the blog with two books on sale! The first one, “Treasure of the Battersea Bluffs,” is on sale for $6.99 and available to purchase on Kindle.

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “In the old factory district of Petersburg, near the Appomattox River, sits a rundown Palladian Villa known as Battersea. Hidden beneath the floorboards of the east wing lies a skeleton that hasn’t been disturbed for two hundred and forty years.”


3. Sarah Norkus’ “The Secret Diary of Sarah Chamberlin”
Ms. Norkus’ other novel is on sale for $2.99 and available to purchase on Kindle.

And of course, here’s a snippet from the blurb: “In the year 2008, fifteen year-old Emily Grace (Em) discovers a secret hiding place under a wooden plank in the attic of an old house in Petersburg. It conceals a 150 year-old-diary belonging to Sarah Chamberlain, the previous owner of the house. Carefully turning to the last entry, Em’s interest is piqued by the mention of missing confederate gold and a murder mystery.”

4. Toni Shiloh’s “A Life to Live”
Yep, I’m back on the list. “A Live to Live” is on sale for Kindle and Nook at 99c. I’m donating my September royalties to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc  (SCDAA) in support of Sickle Cell Awareness Month.

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “Mia is headed to the famed Nottingham for a month long vacation. She never imagined she’d run into her high-school sweetheart thousands of miles away from her home town. Why would God throw them back together?”
