Out today on Amazon Kindle Worlds! This is the novella sequel to my first sweet historical Western as Crystal Green, THE COWBOY'S SECRET.

A cowboy who’s been jilted once before…
After gentleman rancher Jasper Stanley got stood up at the altar, he vowed never to be emotionally involved with a woman again. So when he arranges for a new bride to join him on the Golden C, he’s ready to engage in a productive, straightforward business deal.
Little does Jasper know that Rose Leigh Addison has adored him for years. But can he leave his broken heart behind long enough to see love on the horizon?

This sweet 24,000 word novella takes place right after Debra Holland's BENEATH MONTANA’S SKY, after John Carter returns with his own new bride. It's an Amazon Kindle Worlds exclusive, and if you're looking for a summer read, click here!

I'm planning on a third novella that will come out with Kindle Worlds in December, and when you read the end of this one, you'll see the reason. But be assured that there will be a conclusion to this miniseries...

*FREE* Bonus Chapter Up at Radish!

Okay, Gloved Ones--the ***free*** bonus chapter is up at Radish!

If you haven't read HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE yet, I recommend *not* reading this extra chapter until you finish. It's from Sebastian's point of view (a retelling of chapter 1) and he's thinking things that aren't revealed until later in the book. Part of the fun of HOUSE is discovering the turns behind all the twists, so you've been warned!

Next up will be the print version of the book. All the chapters will be collected there, and you'll get more bonus material. This time, there are tarot readings for Scarlet and Sebastian. The book file is ready to go, and the cover just needs to be done. Stay tuned...especially since I'll be plotting another House book soon, and another mysterious romance is coming your way!

I can't believe it's the end for HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE on Radish...

Or is it?

Well, first of all, you're going to find a ***free*** bonus chapter next week, and it's from Sebastian's point of view. The extra chapter will be available only on the Radish app, so you can go there to read it! One warning, though: If you haven't read all of HOUSE, there are a lot of spoilers in Sebastian's chapter.

Very soon, watch for an announcement about a print version of HOUSE! It'll be available on Createspace, and it will also have exclusive bonus material. For the print version, you'll find tarot readings for Scarlet and Sebastian. The cards produced some very interesting predictions...

To keep up with future works--including the start of another HOUSE book--I'll be putting together newsletters. I would love for you to join the list! All you have to do is go to my new CrystalOh site by clicking here...

Chapter 27 up at Radish for HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE!

Just two more chapters until the novel is complete on Radish!

I'll be posting the final chapters on the same day (Saturday), so you won't have to wait this time. Then I hope you'll stay tuned for a bonus chapter from Sebastian's point of view!

I told you that I would give you a second hint about another House book, so here you go...

In the introduction on Radish, I mentioned that this House was inspired by one of my favorite naughty movies, WILD ORCHID. (And, BTW, check in Saturday to see a major homage to that movie!) I thought it would be fun to continue with the fan-fic vibe, so I'm going to get inspiration from another favorite "old" flick.

Is there anyone out there who hasn't seen BASIC INSTINCT? Well, I'm going to twist many things around with the plot and characters, but I want to capture the sleek, sexy, cat-and-mouse feel of that psychological thriller. In other words, expect more mystery and steam from the second book.

I think I'll be "renaming" Scarlet's story HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE: SCARLET. That would mean the companion novel would feature the name of the new companion who'll be our heroine. It'll be called HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE: ???.

You'll see what her name will be soon enough!

Chapter 26 up at Radish for HOUSE OF THE SATIN GLOVE!

Just because we have answers for all the House mysteries doesn't mean there's no fallout happening for Scarlet...

And there are three more chapters full of payoff!

Actually, you're going to get even more than three chapters. I've written some bonus content that you'll only get on the mobile reading app Radish. Right after the final chapter of HOUSE is published there, you're going to find an extra chapter--and it's from Sebastian's point of view. Remember way back when Scarlet was an ingenue and she first saw Sebastian? You're finally going to get inside his head during that scene!

But that's not all. I've been talking about a print version of HOUSE that will be available soon. I've written exclusive bonus content for that, too. The print book will not only contain all the HOUSE chapters in one volume, but the print version is the only place you're going to find tarot readings for Scarlet and Sebastian. What do the cards say about their future? I was surprised at the outcome...especially Sebastian's.

BTW, I'll be giving a second hint about the new HOUSE book I'm developing on Wednesday, so stay tuned for that!
