From mid-April to mid-June, I’m promoting A Raging Madness, second in The Golden Redepennings series. Read on for the blurb, the Rafflecopter contest, and the itinerary for the virtual tour.
Ella survived an abusive and philandering husband, in-laws who hate her, and public scorn. But she’s not sure she will survive love. It is too late to guard her heart from the man forced to pretend he has married such a disreputable widow, but at least she will not burden him with feelings he can never return.
Alex understands his supposed wife never wishes to remarry. And if she had chosen to wed, it would not have been to him. He should have wooed her when he was whole, when he could have had her love, not her pity. But it is too late now. She looks at him and sees a broken man. Perhaps she will learn to bear him.
In their masquerade of a marriage, Ella and Alex soon discover they are more well-matched than they expected. But then the couple’s blossoming trust is ripped apart by a malicious enemy. Two lost souls must together face the demons of their past to save their lives and give their love a future.

Grand winner of my Rafflecopter prize of a made-to-order story is Connie Chu.
Ramona J Cabrera and Rachel each won the two novellas and the first novel in the Golden Redepenning series.
Come read about the research, the characters, and my writing process. I’ll add more stops, topics, and direct links as the tour progresses. Visit and comment. Where hosts permit, I’m running a giveaway to random commenters of the first novel in the series, plus the two novellas.
