Damaged Heroes, Book Two Coming Soon!

May 15, 2017

I’m thrilled to announce Capturing the Queen, my Damaged Heroes, Book Two, releases June 13th, and is up for pre-order right now!

If you are reading this and it’s still May 2017, YOU are more than welcome to an Advanced Reader’s Copy (ARC.) Be forewarned: it’ll be the same version my copy editor sees: it’s not polished enough to publish.  The upside is: you’re getting a free novel and the ‘first look’ before the rest of the nation! I do request that you share a review on Amazon when this releases. The FIRST 10 readers who request a Capturing the Queen ARC get one. Please use the Contact page.

You can start reading with the excerpt now!
