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.

Jesse’s Nightmare by P.A. Estelle

Jesse’s Nightmare – Book Two of the Jesse Series – a short story that talks about the continuing story of love between Jesse and Ginny Mason.

 

Jesse's Nightmare - finalGinny and Jesse are expecting their first baby. It’s almost April and even the snow that continues to fall doesn’t dampen their moods – until something starts ripping apart the livestock.

But when Jesse comes home during a blizzard and finds his wife and daughter missing, he chokes on a fear that he hasn’t felt in a long time!

 

 

 

Excerpt

Ginny and Sarah were not quite half way to Etta’s when the snow started to fall. She had kept an eye on the sky but was sure they would be there before it got too bad. She thanked God the wind wasn’t blowing so the blankets she had brought would keep them warm, if the snow didn’t get any worse. But it did get worse, much worse.

She had been to Etta’s many times, but never in a snow storm. The road was completely covered with snow and the scenery looked different. There were trees here and there along the way but every time she thought Etta’s house was right behind some trees, it wasn’t.

“Mama, I’m cold.” Sarah’s lips quivered and her teeth chattered.

“I know, sweetie. I am too. Etta’s place is just ahead.”  What has she done? Should she turn around? Could she even find her way home? Dear God, please help.

They went on a ways farther, but Etta’s house was nowhere to be found. She decided to turn Belle around and follow the tracks back from where she came, but saw they were already covered. Could Belle find her way home? Ginny figured that might be their only chance. She turned the wagon and hoped Belle could save their lives.

Ginny didn’t know how long they had been going. The blankets were soaked. Sarah was on her lap and they used their body heat to keep warm. Ginny kept Sarah talking, trying to make her sing. “Don’t go to sleep, Sarah. Do you hear me?” Panic bubbled up in her throat. The little girl was shivering violently. “Sarah!” She shook her and Sarah started crying.

In the distance, through the falling snow, Ginny thought she saw something by some trees but she wasn’t sure. She clicked the reins and headed that way. As she neared it looked like a building of some sort.

“L-l-l-ook, S-s-sarah. It’s a-a-a house.” Her mouth wouldn’t work.

Jesse’s Find is the first in the Jesse’s Series.

 

Jesse's FindJesse Mason is bone tired and just miles from home when a strange sound drifting with a Kansas wind catches his ear.

 

He spies something hiding in the tall grass.  His temper sizzles at the sight of a horse, dead from exertion, and is ready to string up the cowboy that has done this. What Jesse finds is no cowboy at all, but a woman who has been shot and an infant, both, he fears will not make it to his home alive.

 

Jesse didn’t ask for this, but he knew he couldn’t turn his back on them.  What he didn’t know was somebody wanted that woman dead and didn’t care who else had to die to get that job done.
