Hello again! Just a quick note to let you know that Daydreams and Night Scenes is now available on Amazon. Daydreams and Night Scenes cover_TAKE 4

Blurb:

A night of love..Fantasy or Fateful Alliance?

Miranda Stuart is lushly built, hauntingly beautiful, career-oriented, and extremely intelligent, but thanks to a teenage crush on Alex Denning, a man who was way out of her league, she acts out of character when they meet up years later at a posh resort. When she finds out his room is adjoining hers, she determines to have her fantasy night in his arms. When the night’s magic should have begun (unbeknownst to him) our dashing, billionaire playboy enters the scene with bright lights blaring and another woman in tow. Had she just set herself up for blackmail?

Thank you all for your support during my Kindle Scout campaign. It ended with 180 hours in Hot and Trending and 1016 page views, but apparently, that wasn’t enough to guarantee a contract. We gave it a good go though and that’s all we can do.

Thanks again!

Benjamin is Free!

Published March 4, 2016 by Lorraine Nelson - Author

Ben

FREE!!!

Blurb:

Rodeo cowboy Benjamin Hudson is one of four brothers set to inherit their father’s ranch in northern Alberta. The only problem is, the three oldest have been estranged from Zackary Hudson for years. Their father’s will states they have to live on the ranch for one year, show a profit, and care for their baby brother. The main problems…none of them know anything about running a working ranch or caring for an infant. They decide to hire domestic help for the primary care of Jeremiah.

Halifax native, Danielle Madison, wants to escape the pain of an abusive marriage and the resultant stillborn child. She sees the ad for a nanny on a ranch in Alberta, applies, and flies west without a second thought. For Dani it’s work only, with no intention of becoming involved until she meets Benjamin, the tough-as-nails ex rodeo rider, who handles his baby brother with great gentleness and compassion. Little Jeremiah pulls at her heartstrings, and she’s drawn to him, despite her resolve to remain aloof.

Love is not in Ben’s vocabulary, except as it applies to his lost siblings. When things start disappearing and going wrong, Dani is Ben’s initial suspect. He’s attracted to her, despite her withdrawn persona, and tries to believe in her innocence as they work together to solve the mysterious happenings. Will love win out, or will the fear of commitment drive a permanent wedge between them?

The Hudson Ranch books can be read alone, but it’s best if you read them in order. Just click on the titles for blurbs and purchase links.

Book 1, The Inheritance, 99 cents

Book 2, Benjamin, normally $3.36 is Free

Book 3, Gabriel, $3.09

Book 4, Nathan, $4.22

All above books are also available in print.

As always, I’m happy to hear from my fans. Without you, I’d have no reason to write. (Other than the fact that writing keeps me sane.) 🙂 Please post questions and/or comments below.

Kindle Scout – Update

Published March 3, 2016 by Lorraine Nelson - Author

Well, folks, we’ve survived our first week at Kindle Scout. 🙂 Daydreams and Night Scenes cover_TAKE 3

Daydreams and Night Scenes has had a total of 498 page views and 97 hours listed as Hot and Trending. Of course, it would be nice for it to stay Hot continuously, but I’m happy just to have so many people rooting for me and my writing.

Did I tell you that if you nominate my book and it wins a publishing contract, you get a free ecopy? That’s right. A little incentive to participate in the program coming from the Amazon Kindle Scout program. A win, win scenario for each of us.

The first chapter of Daydreams and Night Scenes is posted on the Kindle Scout site and I encourage you to sample my work, if you haven’t done so before. If you like what you read and would like to read the rest, just click that pretty blue ‘nominate me’ button.

Now for a little history…

Daydreams and Night Scenes is actually the 2nd book I wrote while trying to get my thumb to heal, following on the heels of Love on the Rocks. Being off work on medical leave meant I had plenty of time on my hands (pun intended) and I allowed the creative juices to flow freely. I wrote the book in 2 weeks, gave it a quick edit, and that was it. It sat in its file on my computer…waiting for an official edit, which only came to be last month after my friend DJ badgered me into getting it ready to enter the Kindle Scout contest.

Here’s the blurb:

A night of love. Fantasy or Fateful Alliance?

Miranda Stuart is lushly built, hauntingly beautiful, career-oriented, and extremely intelligent, but thanks to a teenage crush on Alexander Denning, a man who was way out of her league, she acts out of character when they meet up years later at a posh resort. She determines to have her fantasy night in his arms. When the night’s magic should have begun (unbeknownst to him) our dashing, billionaire playboy enters the scene with bright lights blaring and another woman in tow. Has she left herself open to blackmail?

If you haven’t already, please pop on over and read my first chapter. I really love these characters and, despite their very diverse backgrounds, find they have a lot in common. Thank you for your support.
