New Short Stories and Free Downloads

Next week I am going to release a short story called, Enduring Promises of the Heart by Penelope Pottifer: Volume One. This is a Prequel to Enduring Promises of the Heart and is exclusively the Gazette serial stories, starting with the very first one.

I'm not sure how many of these I will have time to release but they will all be free for now and available here on my infosite. Initially, when I started writing EPOTH, I wanted to release each chapter as a weekly short story but a novel was actually easier to produce. Who would have thought? So stay tuned! You'll be the first to know when they are released.

Featured Sales and Giveaways this week!

The Captain and Miss Winter

The end of the Napoleonic wars comes as a relief to Caspar Graysmark, but before he can settle into the comfortable life of an English lord he has a duty to the people of France. A treasure lies hidden in the heart of the forest, stolen gold that would save the lives of many who lost everything during the war. In his quest, Caspar stumbles across a hidden cottage in the woods, and a different sort of treasure altogether.

Scarlett, living with her sister and grandmother, belongs nowhere. Her father’s mistakes led to their exile from England and their banishment into the forest. The cold winter months have taken their toll on Scarlett’s spirits and her grandmother’s health. The Englishman who arrives at Scarlett’s door, looking more like a bear than a captain of the British army, reminds her of all she lost to the war.

With winter drawing to a close, Caspar must find the missing gold, but his quest to right the wrongs of war has changed. Can Scarlett let him rescue her, too?
