Faery enchanting!

Lady Arabella Gilmartin and Nigel Reardon, Earl of Everton, were destined for each other but not getting very far--in fact, they hadn’t even met. The faery Oberon and his friend Puck plan to steer the two toward the marriage altar and . . . well, let’s just say things don’t always go exactly as planned!

Dawn Thompson has penned two outstanding novels, and has now shown her talent in the short story format as well. I highly recommend this delightful Regency tale full of magic, humor, and hope, and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel by Ms. Thompson in Blue Moon Enchantment. Awesome!

Jacquie Rogers in Blue Moon Enchantment!


a short story by
in
When Mules Rush In is a western fantasy and features Merlin--you might remember him from King Arthur. Well, now he's a matchmaking mule who has his hooves full with a sassy chicken named DeborahAnne.
What the critique say:

The title may be When Mules Rush In, but readers should rush in to read this hilariously funny story, expertly penned by Jacquie Rogers. Ms Rogers spins a yarn of love and desire between a gambler in a Stetson and a debutante carrying a hoe, while a determined mule named Merlin stirs up magic with his tail, along with the help of a bossy chicken named DeborahAnne. When Mules Rush In is the story of salvation that unites lovers, both mortal and immortal, while being a ripping comedy sure to make the reader laugh out loud.

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation





The
Hurricane
asks:
Can you
Race for
the Cure®?
As you know, No Law Against Love was written with love in support of the fight against breast cancer. Sixteen authors from three continents, including former Boise resident, Jacquie Rogers, penned twenty-four stories to create this wonderful anthology. ALL net profit goes to breast cancer research and prevention., donated by Highland Press, so I've been doing my best to make this book available to everyone. Breast cancer research gets money and you get to read twenty-four happy endings. What a deal!
In support of this worthy cause, I'll also be participating in the 8th Annual Komen Boise Race for the Cure®. I have my No Law Against Love T-shirt and I'm ready to go!

There's NO LAW AGAINST LOVE!


The Hurricane Strikes Again

I'm Hurricane Mercedes, Public Relations Specialist. Every once in a while, you have to give away a freebie, especially for a worthy cause.

Today, I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic book written for a fantastic cause. No Law Against Love is an anthology of 24 stories about silly laws written by 16 authors who have donated their royalties to the American Cancer Society, earmarked for breast cancer research.

Jacquie Rogers wrote two stories for the anthology: Faery Good Advice and Single Girls Can't Jump. And aren't we lucky! because on March 24 (or 25), there will be a booksigning at Hastings Books, Music & Video. I'll let you know more about that later. Keely (the star of Faery Good Advice) will have her Faery Good Bath Salts available.

No Law Against Love is published by Highland Press and is trade paper, Perfect Bound. The book is also available as an eBook. The publisher, the editors, and the authors all donated their time and effort (and money) to make a difference in the lives of all women. Special thanks goes to Leanne Burroughs and DeborahAnne MacGillivray for all their efforts in getting this project underway.

May Good Things Happen Always,

The Hurricane
