I have a new release from muse it up publishing titled 'Painted Jezebel' by Jolie Pethtel


Publicist Finn Mackenzie has always been lucky, until an ill-fated affair with a vindictive writer leaves him once chance for redemption, a spectacular public appearance by the elusive best-selling romance auhor, Jezebel Jinx.

Unfortunately the cute but kooky writer refuses to cooperate. Jezebel believes she's cursed with bad luck. Riddled with anxieties, she never leaves her home--until the gorgeous, albeit desperate Finn whisks her away to a writer's conference against her will.

After the initial shock wears off, Jezebel's dormant hormones kick into high gear around the hunky Finn--who's recently sworn off the horizontal tango with writers.

When his ex turns up murdered and Jezebel is the prime suspect, ill planned sexcapades are the least of their worries.


Jezebel battles her worst fears at a writing conference where love tangles, bitter rivalry and murder stalk the bestseller lists.

A fun, light read combining romantic comedy and mystery. A great holiday gift. Copy & Paste Buy link:

Thanks for the opportunity, Lindsay. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My Native American "Beneath The Shining Mountains" is heading the list today, and if you are looking to curl up with a gently sensual historical full of adventure and intrigue, this could be the ebook for you.

Set among the Apsaroke/Crow people in the 1830s, Moon Hawk has eyes only for Winter Man, but why would a man with his pick of lovers want to take a wife? Moon Hawk's wry challenge to his virility starts of game of tease and spar that escalates to engulf her family in ridicule and shame, and shakes Winter Man's belief in himself as a Good Young Man fit to be a leader of his people.

Through horse-raiding and buffalo hunts, through Warrior Society meetings and Wife Stealing rituals, this thoroughly researched, multi 4/5 star novel will carry you to another world.

"...should be listed with the Classics..."
"I loved learning about their customs and rich culture..."
"...a testing path to love and an exciting one, full of adventure and incident..."

Hi all, have a good Thanksgiving with some of my Historical Hilarity!

Here's my Regency Christmas comedy novella MISTLETOE EVERYWHERE:

BLURB: A man who sees mistletoe everywhere is mad--or in love.

Charles sees mistletoe. Not surprising, since he's spending Christmas at Mistletoe Manor. But why does no one else see it? And why does it always appear above Penelope, the despised lady who jilted him after their last meeting?

Penelope wants nothing to do with the faithless Charles, the man who cried off after she accepted his marriage proposal. But he still stirs her heart--and he stares at her all the time. Or rather, he stares at the empty ceiling over her head…What does he see?

According to folklore, mistletoe is the plant of peace. Can Penelope and Charles, so full of hurt and anger, heed the mistletoe's message and make peace?

What a lovely idea Lindsay! Beautiful covers, and thank you for the opportunity to spread the word!

If your readers are looking for something a little shorter for this busy time of the year, they might like a feel-good, love-regained contemporary Scottish tale!

'Greg was crazy ever to let Julia go. Will she give him another chance or leave again - this time forever?'

My short contemporary romance Edinburgh Fog 'packs more emotional punch and deeper characterization in its thirty two pages than most books do in three hundred,' according to one reviewer.

I have a new M/M Thanksgiving release called "Faded Star."

A news report about his sexuality, followed by a car accident, leaves movie star Heath Evans helpless and bitter. Physical therapist Seiji Kichida has lived a lonely life till now, but the future looks brighter for both men as they find healing and hope in each other.

Drunk and distraught over a news report about his sexuality, movie star Heath Evans accidentally drives his truck into a freeway embankment. Expecting to be ostracized by family and fans alike, he welcomes death.

Physical therapist Seiji Kichida doesn't let the often rude actor faze him with his insults and stereotypical comments. His job is to tend Heath's injured body, not heal his injured soul, but lonely Seiji has idolized Heath since he first arrived in America. Can he help Heath face his future as an openly gay man? He'll need to stand up to Heath's rage, but will he succumb to the actor's sensual glances and tender advances?

House of Lies will always hold a special place in my heart. It was my first published book, my first writing award, and my first love.

Here's an excerpt and buy links.
Now bargain priced at $2.99 at all online venues!!!
Winner of the National Readers’ Choice Awards – Best Romantic Suspense: House of Lies!!!
HERE’S THE BOOK BLURB for House of Lies by Maggie Toussaint:
It’s too late to win her father’s love. Instead, Hannah Montgomery must deal with the remote mountain cottage she inherited. The caretaker of the property, wounded ex-CIA agent Jake Sutherland, promised his dying partner that he’d help Hannah get settled.
But Hannah is very unsettled by the hidden letters from her father, letters which put Jake and Hannah on a collision course. As secrets from her father’s life are revealed, Hannah’s deep-seated quest for the truth challenges Jake’s loyalty and honor.
To make matters worse, the double agent who betrayed Jake and killed her father tracks them down. Caught in a web of deceit, Hannah must make a choice. Will she risk her heart – and her life - to learn the truth about her secretive father?
The rawhide ties of her loosely laced long sleeved shirt held his attention, as did the snug jeans skimming her petite frame. Heavy hiking boots completed her attire.
“Jacob Sutherland?” she asked as she briskly mounted the four shallow steps leading to the porch.
Limping forward, he inclined his head. “Call me Jake.”
“I’m Hannah Montgomery.” After she shook his hand, she shoved her hands into her pockets. “How do you manage this mountainous terrain with a cane?”
The concern in her tone irritated him. He didn’t want her sympathy. His stupid leg injury was the reason her father was dead. Every ache, every twinge, reminded him of his unfinished business.
Unfinished business that he meant to finish.
He shrugged. “It isn’t a problem.”
“I’m sorry for only giving you a few hours notice, but I had an unexpected opening in my schedule. My job has a tendency to take over my life.”
Her words glossed over her three month delay, making it appear that she was glad to finally be here. But he knew otherwise. Her closed body language and that flicker of annoyance in her eyes suggested she didn’t want to be here at all. Too bad.
