Today I’m helping Charlene Raddon celebrate her latest release, The Scent of Roses. Myself and some other bloggers (listed below) have joined Charlene on a blog hop!! Some of us are offering a giveaway (Amazon gift card in my case), but be sure to read to the end of this page so you don’t miss out on how to qualify for the grand prize. Also be certain you visit each blog and comment to qualify for the individual giveaways. And, AND, I’ve also included the back cover blurb for my upcoming release, Bound to the Highlander. Let the fun begin!!

Charlene Raddon has been writing historical romance novels for over thirty years. Her work has won several awards and much well-deserved praise. Here is what she has to say about her newest release.

The Scent of Roses, Charlene Raddon

Any day when a new book is released is exciting for the author. I’m thrilled to announce that my eBook, The Scent of Roses, is now available.

The Scent of Roses, Charlene Raddon[/caption]The Scent of Roses is a sequel to my last eBook, To Have And To Hold, but stands alone and does not need to be read in order to be enjoyed. Whip Kincaid, from The Scent of Roses, is the half-brother of Buck Maddux from To Have and To Hold. Whip also has a twin, Cale, who readers met in Buck’s story, which gives me an excuse to write a third book for this series.

The added touch of paranormal elements made The Scent of Roses a fun story to write. Who doesn’t enjoy haunted houses with hidden passageways? When I first moved to Utah, I lived in this house. No, there weren’t any secret passageways, but in every other way, my description of the old house is accurate. The third element new in this book is the subject of polygamy.

The Scent of Roses

Rosalyn Delaney came to Whisky Ridge, Arizona expecting to receive aid from her estranged husband, Josiah Bullock, in escaping the crazed leader of a polygamist cult determined to have her. She’s broke and has nowhere else to go. But Josiah is dead, murdered the very evening of her arrival. The town is in uproar, searching for the suspected killer, Josiah’s business partner, Whip Kincaid. Rosalyn also learns that Josiah has taken a second wife.

Whip is innocent but to prove that, he needs to stay out of jail. He hides in secret passageways in the old house he and Josiah shared. Smythely, the elderly butler who came with the house, is the only other person aware of the passageways. Lurking between spiderwebbed walls and using the abundance of peepholes provided allows Whip to keep up with what’s going on. Sneaking out at night allows him to investigate. He’s particularly interested in Rosalyn Delaney, and for more than one reason. Besides being attracted to her, he’s sure she knows something about the murder.

But does she? Is she safe at Rose House? Will she be safe from Whip Kincade?

I hope you enjoyed this peek into The Scent of Roses. You can find it on Amazon.

Bound to the Highlander

Aileana Chattan has suffered a devastating loss and as a result discovers she is to wed neighboring chief and baron, James MacIntosh – a man she despises. A man whose loyalty deprived her of the father she loved. Despite him and his traitorous clan, Aileana will do her duty, but she doesn’t have to like it or him. Full of contradiction and arrogance, the MacIntosh awakens something inside her so absolute and consuming, she is forced to question everything.

James MacIntosh is a nobleman torn between tradition and progress. He must make a sacrifice if he is to help Scotland move forward as a unified country. That sacrifice cannot include a betrothal to a young, uncourtly woman. Forced to sign a marriage contract binding Lady Aileana to him years earlier, James must find a way to break it, or risk losing all – including his heart.

From the wild and rugged Highlands near Inverness to the dungeons of Edinburgh Castle, James and Aileana’s preconceptions of honor, duty and love are challenged at every adventurous turn.

    Well, hello again Charlene! I’m glad you’re going to do a story about Cale…when I’ll have all three books in the series and can read without interruption! 🙂 And hello to you, Kate! It was so nice of you to support Charlene’s book on your blog. And I’m sure glad I “met” you today as I haven’t read any of your books and want to badly now after reading your blurb about Bound to the Highlander. I’ve long been a fan of Scots stories. jdh2690@gmail.com
