Only love can heal a heart betrayed...

Harriet Burke has long been haunted by a family scandal. Abandoned by her mother as an infant, she has grown up in the shadows of the events that led up to that scandal. But all changes when she meets the future Viscount of Daneford. The dashing young Lieutenant Arthur Hammett defies his grandfather. Professing his undying love, he proposes to Harriet. Harriet quickly learns that all is not what it seems. Secrets, lies, and betrayal shatters Harriet’s life, leaving Harriet little choice. She has to begin life anew…

They were destined to be together but fate had other plans…
Lord Arthur Daneford made a rash decision years ago that cost him greatly…his biggest regret. Now, though, his past has reemerged. Chilling information has been called to his attention that Harriet’s life is endangered. He will stop at nothing to ensure her safety, but will she accept his help before it’s too late?

ABOUT:

Family scandal…Forbidden love…Ghosts and Curses

Harriet Burke has been cursed or so says her grandfather. In her youth, a gypsy’s blessing gave Harriet the ability to disregard the boundaries of death. Lord Arthur believes it is total nonsense, but he cannot deny there is no explanation for her knowledge. Haunted by visions of wrongs once done, Harriet fears there will be no escape.

 

 

Boston’s Crimes of Passion New Look! New Giveaway!

Boston Crimes of Passion has a new look!

Celebrate with me! I’m having a giveaway—enter here for your chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card or click to enter on the side post!

The first in the Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series! A pulse-pounding thriller! Ms Connally’s first murder mystery delivers! Suspenseful…shocking…a psychological thriller— leaving readers on the edge of their seat. Cameron Quinn is caught in a web of deceit. Protecting her brother from being framed for a murder places Cameron in untold danger. When the real killer diverts his attention to her, she has nowhere to turn, especially not to the man she shared one unforgettable night… who now is trying to put her brother in prison. A “must read” for any suspense lover!

Blood makes you related; Murder makes you family!

Riley Ashcroft discovers that being born into one of the most prominent and powerful families in Massachusetts doesn’t mean a life of ease. Far from it. Since her father, Jack Ashcroft, took his own life thirteen years ago, she has lived in the shadow of scandal. When her grandmother’s personal secretary is brutally murdered, Riley begins to suspect everything she has been told as a child was a lie. Feeling betrayed, she vows to expose her family’s darkest secrets.

Josh Kincaid, an investigative reporter, is on the heels of a major story. Thirteen years ago, Harrison Taylor’s fate lay in the hands of his lawyer, Jack Ashcroft. In the midst of rumors and scandal, Ashcroft committed suicide and Taylor’s fate was decided. Taylor is a convicted killer, but his grandmother has never stopped believing in his innocence. Now, the woman of meager means has offered a reward for any information that will free her grandson. Kincaid’s interest is peaked, but it isn’t until an anonymous tip suggests that the convicted killer was framed that he takes on the case.

Determined that the sins of the past be revealed, Kincaid and Riley search together for answers to the questions that were silenced by Jack Ashcroft’s death. But there is a killer out there that has already proven he will do whatever necessary to keep those secrets buried.

In this tale of deceit and twisted revenge, the two soon realize that no one can be trusted, not even each other…

Also, I have put Winds of Betrayal under one cover!

Winds of Betrayal, Four Book Collection, is the complete series, which included Winds of Betrayal, The Darkness of Deception, The Heavens Shall Fall, and Set Fire to the Rain.

Winds of Betrayal has been my baby for such a long time and has gone through many changes over the years, especially the titles to the books. The first book alone has been titled Patriot Secrets, The Cry For Freedom, Embrace of the Enemy, Winds of Betrayal 1&2 to simply-Winds of Betrayal.

I don’t believe it will be surprising to know that the Culper Spy Ring has been my inspiration for Winds of Betrayal. But my story is purely fiction. The history, though, I have tried my best to stay true to the facts as well as I could. The time line may have been stretched in places to fit my story.

I have spent so much time with these characters. I feel as though they are family. I started writing this series almost fifteen years ago when all that could be found on the internet about the Culper Spy ring was a single page with only a couple of paragraphs dedicated to these brave men and women. In my research, I discovered just how important spying was to General Washington, but, also, how deadly to those that laid their lives on the line if they were caught.

I am not a historian, but a lover of history. I feel that the sacrifices of those before us should never be forgotten. The American Revolution has always fascinated me. Our Founding Fathers surely need to be admired for laying the foundation for such a great country. I hope I have done justice to their memories.

I truly hope you enjoy my series.

Thank you so much for your interest in my work. My mother was Jewish and my father was Romany. From the time I was young, the dark memories of the holocaust were apart of my life.  Soon all the survivors will be gone, and the lessons of the holocaust must not be lost with them. I studied, researched,  and met with survivors, and each story of survival has one common thread, that even in the darkest hour there’s always a flicker of light. And that flicker of light is, love.
I send you many blessings. Roberta

Spreading the Cheer…and Word!

For me, this year has been filled with many ups and downs. The highlight was the birth of my grandson, Jordan. He has been a light in my life. His giggle and smile brightens my day.FullSizeRender

Unfortunately, this year I lost my mother-in-law, Marilyn, to complications with Alzheimer’s in August and my father-in-law, George,  to cancer in October. Then my mother had a stroke…

My time and energy has been directed toward my family during the last few months. With my attention on family, I really didn’t feel like I celebrated Southern Legacy the way I wanted.

In the spirit of the holiday season, I have decided to highlight Southern Legacy with another set of giveaways. I will need your help… I’m going to see what word of mouth can do for promotions…

Starting Monday, I am doing a Christmas Giveaway called Spread the Word. To enter, one only needs to spread the word… Retweet the daily tweet on any Southern Legacy book… Belle of Charleston will be $.99 for the whole month of December… repost on Facebook from Southern Legacy Facebook page…or even tell a friend.

The idea is to get the word out… Did you enjoy Southern Legacy? Let the world know!!! Get the word out.

During the next three weeks, I will be giving away signed copies of Southern Legacy print version, ebooks and a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate…and because it is Christmas, I will donate another $100 to the charity of your choice.

BelleofCharleston (1)

RT Be swept away with ‪#‎Romance‬ Belle of Charleston, Book 1 Southern Legacy ‪#‎Bargain‬! Only $.99! http://ow.ly/UUSO1

Don’t forget that if you enjoy a book…any book, please leave a review. Reviews are the life blood of Indie writers! Trolls don’t have a problem leaving a review. I have been the target of trolls for years. As of late, I have had a few reviews on books I let go free that have been vindictive, mean spirited and spiteful. I know most readers ignore obvious troll reviews, but what they do is lower the ranting of the book. These reviews go against Amazon stated guidelines, but for some reason Amazon lets these reviews remain on my books. I’m not talking about legit reviews. With Belle of Charleston, I have quite a few negative reviews about it being a cliffhanger. I expected those despite leaving warnings it is a cliffhanger. The reviews I’m talking about are the ones that pock fun at me as a person and writer. So if you enjoy a book, please take the time to leave a review. Indie authors deeply appreciate your efforts!

Southern Legacy is also under Amazon’s KindleUnlimited!! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season…Spread the cheer and the Word! Have a great day!

Set against the backdrop of Antebellum Charleston with the martial clash of brother against brother looming on the horizon–here is an absorbing, tantalizing saga of life during one of our country’s most turbulent times–Southern Legacy Series.

In a world of pageantry and show, the Montgomery family accepts the way of life that has been antebellum Charleston for over a hundred years. Two cousins, the handsome and debonair, Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Smythe, were born to be brothers. Raised as Southern gentlemen, their character could never be questioned–loyalty, honor, duty to one’s country, God and family. It was the tie that binds until…their bond is threatened, not only by the cry for secession but by a woman–Josephine Buchanan Wright.

Josephine Buchanan Wright is a dutiful, southern belle. Her future seems fated to the two Montgomery cousins…until all she has placed her faith in falls apart. As her life spirals out of control, she tries desperately to cling to the honor and duty that has been instilled in her. But how can she do so when all she has known is no more?
