History. Reality. Fantasy. All rolled into one zany family.

If Justine Hale had the time, she’d get in her car and go crazy. She owns two kids, an ex-mother-in-law, and a bankrupt mother. Money scarce, she moves her entire family into a run-down, two-hundred-year-old farmhouse.

Resident ghost Lottie Roberts offers to help. She’s bossy, but she cooks. So what if she’s betwixt and between? After all, it’s her house. Before Lottie can intervene, though, Tucker Highsmith steals her thunder with his sexy grin, lazy Alabama drawl, and Mr. Fix-it talent.

Plagued with the demands of her family, Justine dismisses ghost and handyman alike. But hidden agendas prevail, and Justine is caught in the middle.

Amazon finally matched-price Winds of Betrayal 4-Bk Collection. The ebook is now free everywhere. All four books are under one cover—the entire series. These are the books.

 

This is something I wanted to do. I sincerely hope that anyone that reads historical romance/ historical fiction will enjoy the series. More than that, I hope you can escape the reality of the world around us for a few hours.

I believe it is obvious this wasn’t a business move. Because I won’t be making any money with this offer, I won’t be promoting Winds of Betrayal in my usual manner when I offer a deal on a book. This means the only way to get the word out is word of mouth—sharing on social media. Please do with anyone you know that reads historicals.

Spurred by revenge, she heads to New York, setting in motion a dangerous game for which there is no return. Searching desperately for the man who betrayed her family, she faces the cold and brutal reality of the life of a spy. Caught in a web of lies, living with betrayal, she is trapped. She has nowhere to turn except to a man it would be treasonous to love, setting duty and desire at war.

Yet destiny has not intervened in their lives without cause. Rebekah’s strength, courage, and breathtaking sensuality set within Jonathan a desire he swore never to feel again.

Now Jonathan and Rebekah must face the perilous threat together—only to discover a passion they never imagined…

After the devastating loss at Saratoga, the British respond with a vengeance, aiming at taking a strategic hold on the South. In New York, the American spy network is in turmoil, leaving Rupert Arnett to pick up the pieces. Never has it been more dangerous, but never has the stakes been higher.

Under siege by the RedCoats, Charles Town collapses, giving the Americans their most humiliating and worse defeat of the war. When Dr. Jonathan Corbett is taken prisoner, Rebekah faces her greatest personal challenge…for the only way to save her husband’s life is to betray his trust. She turns to the one man Jonathan despises the most, General Marcus Durham.

On the return of Major John Andre to New York, Rupert recognizes something is amiss. The British intelligence seems to know Washington’s every move. Pressure mounts on him to discover what the British have planned. Amid untold dangers, Rupert turns to his one operative that can uncover the truth.

ROMANTIC PICKS Stressed? Frustrated? Scared? So am I…How About an Escape For a Few Hours—Free!

Never in my wildest imagination did I ever consider what is happening in the world today. Like so many others, I haven’t a clue where this is going. I commend the front-line help in this pandemic from medical care, police, fire-fighters, and the little talked about groups like grocery workers and delivery men and women.

I’ve been thinking of making a complete series free for readers until this corona virus pandemic is over. Usually Indie authors give the first book free so readers will become interested and buy the other books in the series. This won’t be about me making money. I won’t be. I want to give readers an escape for a few hours…an entire series.

This would be my goodwill gesture. I used to be a medical technologist which means if I was working, I would be running the corona virus tests. I was injured at work over three years ago and left me unable to work in a lab anymore. I can’t go run errands for anyone because of my age and asthma. I want to do something.

I decided to give the complete Winds of Betrayal series away free. All four books are included: Winds of Betrayal, The Darkness of Deception, The Heavens Shall Fall (one of my best books) and Set Fire to the Rain.

There has been a little hiccup in my attempt to make Winds of Betrayal free for everyone—Amazon. Its a trying time and I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they are going to address the price match this book. It’s really up to them. I have left the link to Amazon up with this post so anyone that wants it free on Amazon can report the lower price. I have emailed them numerous times (for days), but like I said, business isn’t going on as usual, but I’ll admit I’m disappointed it hasn’t gone free yet. If after reporting it and it still doesn’t go free, email me at jerri.hines@jerrihines.com, I will send you a PDF. It is FREE on Nook, iTunes, and Kobo.

ROMANTIC PICKS #STAYSAFE #BINGEWATCH AND #READAROMANCE

For the next few weeks, everyone is going to be hanging out at home. Binge-watching is high on everyone’s list. I’ve been watching Picard on CBS Access. It’s ok. I think I like it just because it has Picard in it. With loving the Star Trek series, it makes sense that I wanted to watch anything new with the series. It’s been fun seeing Seven of Nine, Riker and Troi. (Though, I don’t know what happened to Seven of Nine’s romance with Chakotay.) Saying that, I have only enjoyed Picard and Star Trek Discovery on CBS Access, but I have enjoyed everything on Disney Plus. My grandson enjoys Marvel, Star Wars, and the Disney movies. I enjoy National Geographic Wild such as The Incredible Dr. Pol and Yukon Vet. I still feel the best place to binge watch is Netflix: Grace and Frankie, Breaking Bad, The Office, Ozark, Longmire, Mars, DareDevil, The Punisher, BloodLine, Haven, …. the list goes on and on. Moreover, Netflix has a whole list of romantic movies. I have Amazon Prime, but don’t watch it often. If you do, why not list a few shows to watch in the comments. One show that I have totally enjoyed is on NBC, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. It’s different, and I love the music.

The best escape to me is always a book, especially a romance. I have a whole list for you to choose from from recommended authors and if you enjoy, check out the authors other books as well.

Notorious rogue, Lord Nathaniel Kingsley always tended to leap without thinking. Becoming a smuggler, adopting a sheep, getting engaged to Miss Patience Grey….
Patience has no need for a fiancé, or a husband. For once in her life, she wants to prove she’s just as good as a man and she does not need Nathaniel Kingsley getting in her way. With her brother injured, it is up to her to continue her family’s work…and that means tracking down a French spy and ensuring said spy will turn.
Unfortunately, no one believes she can do it alone. Which is where Nathaniel comes in.

Can he keep his attention from her long enough to complete their mission and persuade Patience to let him do his job and protect her? A job he’s beginning to find he’s enjoying a lot more than he thought he would…
