Please check my Facebook page to learn about a terrific giveaway my publisher is offering to promote my upcoming release, THE CHRISTMAS ROOM, which will be available this fall. Writing a book about my favorite holiday was a joy, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

The fourth Mystic Creek novel is nearly finished and is scheduled for release early next year. After it's wrapped up I may take a break from writing for a month or so and enjoy my first Montana summer. The longer I am here the more I love it. Everyone is amazingly friendly and the state's rich history already has my mind spinning with more story ideas.

Kat Martin

Hitting the road this summer? I'm off for a writing retreat at the beginning of the month, and I thought I'd check out Louisville, Kentucky's Jane Austen Festival the weekend of the 14th. Otherwise I'm staying close to home, writing on the porch if it's not too hot. I'm working on three books over the summer, if you can believe it: my cozy mystery cat novel, the edits for ONE LAST SECRET, my suspense novel publishing in late 2018/19, and I'm researching yet another novel that I can't breathe a word about yet. If you're looking for summer suspense chills, remember to check out my BLISS HOUSE trilogy. The first novel, BLISS HOUSE, is available in audio---perfect for plane, train, or car. Need a short listen? Listen to me read my short story, THE ERSTWHILE GROOM over at Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Or pick up my Edgar-nominated story, A PALER SHADE OF DEATH. When you're done, pop over to my blog and say hi! Safe travels, whether they take you down distant roads, or into the universe of your imagination. See you there!

D.M. Marlowe is thrilled that NerdGirl Official loved OBSIDIAN'S EYE!

---This series is amazing! It reads very cinematically, to where you are seeing all the beautiful fight sequences on a private movie screen in your head rather than on a page. Mei is an amazing heroine and I love seeing her world through the stars in her eyes. (See what I did there?) I can't wait to read more from D.M. Marlowe.

---NerdGirlSara at NerdGirl Official

Pick up EYE OF THE NINJA to start the series and look for D.M. Marlowe at Dragon Con this year!

Hi All! WICKED KISS, the fourth book in the Realm Enforcer series, releases on July 4th! This book features Adam Dunne and Tori Monzelle...and things get explosive and fast! Here's the blurb: Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she's not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she's not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn't going to make it far . . .

Before she knows it, Adam's word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is---to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn't interested in being anyone's pity date. And if they think she's unpredictable now, they should see what's coming next . . .

This has been one heck of a year, one with tons of new books coming out and lots of super exciting news and events! First things first, ALWAYS A WANDERER hit store shelves on June 27th.

The first book in this series is MS. CALCULATION. The entire series is set in the fictional town of Mystery, Montana and so these books became the Mystery Christmas Series.

In MR. SERIOUS, Book 2, duty and danger bring an alpha hero to Mystery, Montana.

Summer has finally arrived.

This month I will re-release the first book in the Rose Series, THE KISS OF A ROSE. The re-release includes the first chapter of the second book in the series, THE THORN OF A ROSE, and an excerpt from the third book, THE BLOOM OF A ROSE.

My new Love through Time series begins on October 10th with the release of book one, A SECOND CHANCE.

The word broke into her thoughts.
"Ah..." Her muscles clenched as she formed the words. "What time is it?"
"It's about half past two." Charlotte answered with a hint of concern in her voice.
"What day is it?" Jessica's knees began to tremble.
Charlotte hesitated. "Monday."
The last question stuck in her throat and she had to force it out. "What...ah...what year is it?"
Charlotte's eyes widened. "1876".

I will be attending the Emerald City Writers Conference in October and will have a table at the Passport to Romance Reader Appreciation Event. If you are in the Seattle area, stop by and say hello. I'll have lots of goodies to give away.

Happy reading!

MAKE ME WANT is the third book in the Men of Gold Mountain series. There will be four books total, each one set in a different season. MAKE ME WANT is the summer book. The hero is a wildland firefighter, so get ready for some scorching summer nights!

Each book in the Men of Gold Mountain series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order. Get started today:

Writing about the seasons has been such a fun way to capture the beauty of the mountains year-round. And it makes for creative outdoor sexy adventures, no matter the temperature outside!

JAKE2 releases July 4!

Jake Green is another one of my reader favorites, like Fredo and Cooper. This SEAL was loosely based on a roommate of my son's when they were both "froglets", and bachelors. He was a skilled warrior, but when it came to relationships? Not. My character deals with a totally dysfunctional family, a father who has just passed away, leaving behind a trail of carnage and secrets. On top of that, there's a certain Mexican General who wants Jake to pay for a previous mistake from an earlier mission. And they've just been deployed back there to complete that mission. I've had fun with this one!

Dear Readers

Great reviews are in for ADDICTED TO THE DUKE (Imperfect Lords series #1). It's the story of one man's obsession with revenge while he battles his opium addiction.

Library Journal Review:

Ten years ago, Alexander Bracken, now the Duke of Bedford, chose to test his mettle in England's wars with the Barbary pirates of the Mediterranean. Captured by the Turks, he was eventually rescued but left captivity with a craving for opium and profound shame at the acts he was forced to commit to survive. Two years later, he rescued Hestia Cary, the daughter of his rescuer, from nearly suffering the same fate at the same hands. Now, Hestia is under threat yet again, and she turns to her savior, setting them both on a course either to vindicate their earlier bondage or repeat it, with danger approaching from all sides.

Verdict: It takes Hestia, who knows all and loves him anyway, to heal Alex's heart. Regency romance fans looking for something just a bit different will adore this one from Evans (A Taste of Seduction) ---Marlene Harris, Reading Reality, Atlanta

Available on all eBook platforms

Read. Feel. Fall in Love.

July looks to be busy! On July 6th, my first contemporary novel, THE BURNING POINT, Circle of Friends #1, will be FREE on most e-book platforms in conjunction with a BookBub ad. It will continue to be free for two weeks after. THE BURNING POINT was listed as one of the top five romances of the year by Library Journal.

I'm attending the RWA national conference in Orlando from July 26th, with a huge literacy signing with hundreds of authors on Saturday, July 29th from 3:00 to 5:00 at the Dolphin Resort Hotel. (RWA has just been recognized for raising over $1,000,000 for literacy over the years. Well done, RWA!) I hope to see some of you there.

Thanks to all of you who bought WEDDING OF THE CENTURY, an e-book containing two of my wedding novellas! This collection has sold very well and is continuing to do so.

But mostly in July, I'll be working, working, working on next year's book, ONCE A PIRATE. I'm just been sent a copy of the cover art, and it's gorgeous! I'll show you the finished cover when it becomes available.

Happy reading to you all!

Get Out of My Kitchen

by Kyra Jacobs Ask anyone about my cooking skills, and you’ll soon learn I’m not the smoothest operator in the kitchen. Baking desserts I can do, but experimenting with a little dab of this and a touch of that for main courses? Uh, no. I need exact measurements and rules to follow. Sarcasm, however, runs… Read More
