Lois Winston

A Team Effort

In the summer of 2013 I had the good fortune of being invited to join with nine other authors to create a romance box set. After writing for several different publishers, I had recently dipped my toe into the world of indie publishing, and I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to introduce my writing to many more readers. The book I chose to feature in Romance Super Bundle was Love, Lies and a Double Shot of Deception, an award-winning romantic suspense first published in 2007. We decided to price the boxed set at the incredibly low price of only $.99. We wanted to make it a deal too good for romance readers to pass up.

To say I was happy with the results of my first foray into the world of boxed sets would be a huge understatement. I was ecstatic! As a group, the women who contributed to this series were a pleasure to work with. The experience was so positive—both financially and in all other ways—that we decided to get together the following year for a follow-up. We invited an 11th author to join us and came out with Romance Super Bundle II: Second Chances, which propelled us onto the USA Today bestseller list.

 

Now we’re back again with Romance Super Bundle III: Always & Forever. This set of eleven contemporary, historical, and romantic suspense books includes the following stories:

 

Evidence of Trust by Stacey Joy Netzel

Sparks fly when a headstrong wrangler & an alpha park ranger are thrown together while he’s searching for evidence to stop a poacher killing animals in RMNP. When the monster turns his sights on Brittany, Joel discovers he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.

Brave in Heart by Emma Barry – Time after Time Historical Romance Bundle

Today, is another author from the Historical Romance Bundle Time after Time from Crimson Romance, Emma Barry.

roses2

“I wish to end our engagement”: with that declaration, Margaret Hampton chooses a life of integrity over one with love. Knowing her passionate but frozen fiancé Theodore Ward submits too much to the will of others, she rejects the compromised marriage he offers for a small but honest life as a spinster teacher. Theo is heartbroken, but as usual, he accepts someone else’s decision without struggle, retreating further into himself.
Two years later, as the American Civil War starts, Theo sees Margaret and pursues her again. The war seems like the fulfillment of all his passions—one that he badly misjudges. With a martial drumbeat in the background, is Theo finally willing to change? And is Margaret willing to pay the cost for everything she ever wanted?
Part second-chance-at-love story and part searing war memoir, Brave in Heart is a fast-paced but true-to-period historical romance about change and forgiveness, bravery and loss, and finding the strength to act.

Excerpt:

That smile! She could feel it like a caress running down her body from crown to toe. But she would not let him distract her thus. She asked, “Why did you ask me to dance?”

“Because I saw you and couldn’t put you from my mind,” he said, as if it were the most natural and uncontroversial thing in the world.

“But why now?”

“That’s two questions.”

It was as if he had cast a spell over her. She could not look away. Margaret knew they were much too close. With the heat of the crowd and the intensity of Theo’s eyes, long-dead memories came thronging back to her. She remember when he first pulled her into his arms, in a dark hallway off the Smith’s parlor, and pressed his lips to hers. It was a brief kiss. Artless, compared to some they would later share. Oh, but she had thought she might expire from happiness. Theo Ward wanted her. Loved her.

She felt a blush creep into her cheeks at the thought, mirroring the flush on his face. Was he remembering the same moment? This was madness.

Somehow her feet produced the right steps. Somehow they avoided colliding with other couples. Somehow she restrained herself from committing any more serious breach of decorum. When the dance was finished, they clapped politely and Theo offered her his arm to lead her from the floor. When they reached the edge, he took her hand and stared down at it for a long moment. He raised it to his mouth and brushed his lips over her knuckles.

Theo murmured, “Why now? Because it’s time.” He pressed her hand to his mouth firmly a second time before releasing it and then whispering, “Until next Saturday, Miss Hampton.”

Reviews:
