Before we get to this week's free, 99-cent, and new books...

Hi, friends and family!

Since this is my first mail of 2019, Happy New Year! I hope the coming months will be everything you hope for and more.

My December contest winner is announced below—scroll down to see if it's you! And if you didn't win, don't despair. A new contest has started for January. You'll find the details for that below, too. :-)

FREE READ for my Book Club members only!

In my Chase Family Readers Group on Facebook, our Book Club romance for the month of January is A CAJUN DREAM by my longtime friend Cherie Claire.

Louisiana, 1848: When heiress Amanda Richardson is compromised by the town rogue, it is her good friend René Comeaux who rescues her. Unbeknown to Amanda, the darkly handsome and passionate Cajun René has been in love with her for months. Can he overcome societal divides to win the heart of his “Jolie Blonde” at last?

If you haven’t read A CAJUN DREAM yet, hit the button below to join my group and grab a FREE copy!

Then mark your calendar for our all-day virtual Book Club party on Monday, January 28. I’ll announce the theme in the group first, and then in my next newsletter.

Take me to the Chase Family Readers Group!

Introducing My Bookstore!

I have a new online store, and the first things in it are my two massive boxed sets, Chase Family Series: The Complete Jewels & Flowers Collection and The Complete Chase Brides Collection.

My model for Ford's bedroom pre-renovations.

Although you can find these sets on Apple Books, Nook, Kobo, and Google Play, they are NOT available on Amazon. (That’s because Amazon refuses to pay full author royalties for titles priced over $9.99, and these sets normally sell for $24.99.)

But now all readers can get them from my own store—including a mobi file that can be read on Kindle. And during January only, you’ll get a 25% discount!

Each of these sets has 9 books in them. Even at full price, they are a steal compared to buying all 9 books individually. But with the coupon code below, you’ll end up spending only $18.74—just slightly over $2 per book.

Click the big purple button, and be sure to use coupon code P0C1KZIOU3 to get 25% off when you check out!

Take me to the Lauren Royal Bookstore!

Two Free Sweet & Clean Books from Devon & Me!

Amethyst & The Earl's Unsuitable Bride — Enable your images to see my book covers!

In this “wonderful read” (Romantic Times), Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, finds his carefully planned life turned upside down when the Great Fire of London lands a lowly jeweler's daughter in his arms.

THE EARL'S UNSUITABLE BRIDE is regularly $4.99, but this week it's free!

Lost in Temptation & Alexandra — Enable your images to see my book covers!

Lady Alexandra Chase has always liked being the perfect daughter. But when her brother’s best friend—her secret girlhood crush—returns from a long spell abroad, family duty and a flawless reputation suddenly seem less important than the chance, however slight, that he might notice her now that she’s all grown up…

The first novel in a “beguiling Regency trilogy” (Booklist), ALEXANDRA is regularly $4.99, but this week it's free!
