LOOKING FORWARD TO 2017! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

COMING APRIL 4, 2017!

THE DRAMATIC CONCLUSION TO WINDS OF BETRAYAL!

Winds of Betrayal is coming to its conclusion! The war is at its turning point, finding Jonathan Corbett anxious to rescue with his brave and courageous wife before its too late to save her and his sister, Hannah, finds herself facing her worst fears. Spies and Traitors; Love and Betrayal, Set Fire To The Rain has it all. It will be up for pre-order January 10th.

One thing I would recommend for those that have read the whole Winds of Betrayal series up to this point— Winds of Betrayal, The Darkness of Deception, and The Heavens Shall Fall—there is one more book that has a connection to Winds of Betrayal—The Bastard Son. You don’t have to read it, but there are some crossover characters that help lay the foundation for Set Fire To the Rain. 

Also, don’t miss out on Southern Legacy! Highly Recommended to Read! If you haven’t read it, pick up your copy! January will be Southern Legacy’s month!

READER’S REVIEW

By Nancy on March 10, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition

My first experience with Jerri Hines was reading her “Winds of Betrayal” series. I loved the series and, in fact, read the first three books again when I discovered the fourth installment (I’ve since subscribed to her newsletter so I won’t miss any new releases). Anyway, I enjoyed the series so much I decided to read “Southern Legacy” but only after the series was complete. I’m just too impatient to sit through cliff hangers and Ms. Hines gave plenty of warning each book left you hanging, which I was grateful for. It too was an excellent series and I highly recommend it do anyone who enjoys historical fiction. It’s one of those books that keeps you thinking about the characters long after you’ve stopped reading. That, to me, is a sign of an excellent story teller.
Also, coming in 2017, I’m revamping my fantasy series, Whispers of a Legend. I will be bringing it under my penname, Colleen Connally and revising each book along with publishing the next book in the series.
Also, I want to congratulate Michael P., the winner of the Kindle Voyage Contest!
Welcome 2017 with a great read!!! Happy New Year everyone! Have a wonderful and safe holiday!

SOUTHERN LEGACY, The 4-Book Collection! Special Offer—Limited Time Only!

southernlegacy_collectionflat

AMAZON    BARNES AND NOBLE   ITUNES  KOBO

FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY—THROUGH DECEMBER—IT WILL ONLY BE $4.99! Four books for only $4.99!

Southern Legacy, the 4-Book Collection, now has its own cover! Absolutely lovely! More importantly, this cover depicts the essence of the book—a sweeping historical romance!

This book represents why I wanted to write. Southern Legacy is the accumulation of years of research, hours upon hours of writing, and the heart-wrenching toil of putting on paper a part of me. My love for my Southern roots is within every page. There is an acceptance of the past that came with this book.

Explosive! Action-filled! Unforgettable Romance! A story that won’t leave you after you finish the last page!

REVIEW~ C. Roberts

I wept at the end of the book for more than one reason. I was ready for the end of the series but I still want more. I loved this book the most because it pointed out the failure of resolution. It also pointed out that the north held their own prejudices. The most meaningful quote for me was when Jo reflected, “life is not about making an impact on the world as we know it, but on the lives of those you love. I wonder what impact I have made…” This series is definitely the best I have ever read regarding the War Between the States. It was gripping, romantic, suspenseful and historical. A story well-woven.

 

 

The Holidays Are Upon Us!

I was shopping yesterday. It struck me that Christmas is just around the corner. The shops are filled already with Christmas decorations. Most years, I might have complained. This year, though, I think I appreciate the atmosphere more. I want to feel the joy and happiness that the holidays bring, even if it is before Thanksgiving.

To be honest, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s about being thankful. This Thanksgiving, I’m so grateful for so much. My family. My health. Also, for having the precious time with my momma before she passed. The loss of my mother has hit me hard. She fought hard to recover from her stroke last November, but I will hold to the moments we shared during those last few months. She will always be in my heart.

I’m also grateful that I feel my writing again. It has come back.

For the holidays, I hope you enjoy the free books I have to offer you. Belle of Charleston is perma-free everywhere (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes and Kobo). You can, also, get Shadows of Magnolia free if you sign-up for my newsletter.

November’s Winds

I have come to regard November as the older, harder man’s October.

I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October.

It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer’s death as winter tightens its grip. ~Henry Rollins

I can’t believe that November is half-way done. This month has been a blur. I do have a few things going on that might hold your interest. I set The Governor’s Daughter for free and then I didn’t really promote it except on one site. But The Governor’s Daughter is FREE until November 17!

I’m in the process of taking Winds of Betrayal off of KDP. It will be up soon on all the sites. I believe The Darkness of Deception and The Heavens Shall Fall is offered most everywhere now. Winds of Betrayal is going to take a little longer. I’m going through Smashwords again because its where it has all its reviews. So it will take a little longer to go through. But when it does it will be a perma-free book! I’m also having a devil of a time getting the print covers changed.

THE DARKNESS OF DECEPTION! Previously titled The Kiss of Deceit.

“The Darkness of Deception weaves together a fine tapestry of romance and history. With intense emotion and passion the characters come alive on the page and engage you from the opening chapters. Author Jerri Hines has cleverly crafted her story around the war torn south with such rich detail it makes you feel as though you are right there in the midst of the American Revolution.”

THE HEAVENS SHALL FALL
A Wonderful Series for History Buffs and Romance Lovers of the American Revolution — Jerri Hines is quite the writer
“This book was no less spectacular than thethree preceding ones. It carries us further through the events of the AmericanRevolution introducing new characters and more intrigue. As characters wereintroduced I’d check the internet to know if these military officers existed ornot. Ms. Hines builds such a convincing story that you have to remind yourselfthat it is fiction, albeit the historical characters were real and the eventsof the war were, too…”

Sumner Meador walked in a world of wealth and privilege as part of Charles Town’s elite, but that was years ago. Now he fights in the Southern backwoods driven by the passion he holds for the Patriot cause, shadowed by his past. Reeling from a devastating defeat at the hands of the British, Sumner seeks haven at his farm, only to find an interloper–an unwelcome and unwanted distraction. He has no time for the young woman or the complications she brings with her, but soon discovers he has no option but to give aid to the stubborn, courageous beauty whether she wants it or not.

Jane Kilmer has been violently thrust into the midst of the civil war ensuing in the backwoods. Hiding from one of the most dangerous vigilantes, Jane trusts no one. Suddenly, she has no choice but to put her life in Sumner’s hands. Both desire revenge, but neither wants what happens–to fall completely, undeniably in love with each other. As the war rages around them, their love is put to the ultimate test. The question becomes not whether their love will survive, but will they.

Author’s Note: This book was previously published with Whiskey Creek Press as Another Night Falls under the Tides of Charleston Series.

 

BE SWEPT BACK IN TIME! The Governor’s Daughter—FREE for Limited Time!

getPart (1)

Cathryn Blankenship has no desire for a season in London! Why on earth would her father want her to leave her home in Charles Town? Upon Cathryn’s steadfast refusal, Governor Blankenship is forced to assign a young lieutenant to watch over Cathryn on the journey and ensure his daughter’s appearance in London. Cathryn finds Lieutenant Jake Pennington the most aggravating, maddening man she has ever met…a man Cathryn soon admits she is in no hurry to see leave.

But fate has other plans for her in a world she is ill prepared to enter. She descends into a place where love and betrayal go hand and hand, where greed and treachery are second nature, but moreover the threat her father believes he has sent her is awaiting her arrival. When fate tears her apart from her Lieutenant, Cathryn finds herself desolate and alone. Soon, Cathryn makes fateful decisions that will send her back to her home.

A home far different than the one she left. A war rages. Soon, she discovers her life is in danger and the only one that can save her is the one who left her heartbroken.

Author’s Note: This book was previously published with Whiskey Creek Press as The Judas Kiss and The Promise under the Tides of Charleston Series.
