March Madness Blog Hop - Loving What Brings People Together

It's March Madness time and while I'm not a big basketball fan, I am a fan of teams and team sports and those things that bring us together, uniting us and making us stronger. It's these elements that tie together my families in the Fevered Hearts series and my Marines in the Always a Marine series.

Always a Marine

The series launched within the 1Night Stand series at Decadent Publishing. Madame Eve is a magician at putting the right couples together.  Always a Marine focuses on helping the men and women who serve our country find love.  Currently eleven books are released in this series with several more on the way. What brings these characters together is more than sexual preference, race, or geography. It's a uniform faith to serve their country and devote their lives to service.

Fevered Hearts

The white man blamed the Indians saying they used their mojo on them. 
The Indians blamed the white man saying they angered the spirits. 
The survivors know it doesn't matter. 

Meet the fevered hearts, the men and women who survived spirit fever. Forever changed, these are their stories. Set in the 1850s, this series follows the Kane and Morning Star families as they fight to survive and find love.

“The Marshal of Hel Dorado is like X-Men and Young Guns wrapped up with not one but two families full of hot brothers to lust after.” – Cat Johnson, author of Hooked.

Book 2
One lucky commentator can have their pick of any book already released in either of these two series! Winner to be announced on April 1st!

  1. Awesome idea for a Blog Hop! Thank you for the #MarchMadnessHop giveaway!


  2. Now this is my idea of #MarchMadnessHop!

  3. I love the excitement of the March madness basketball games. I usually root for the underdogs in the tournament. I enjoy seeing them defeat the higher ranked teams. Unless my favorite team is playing, I root for them. Unfortunately, I don’t get to watch too many of the games due to my ever changing work schedule.
    Thanks for being part of the March Madness hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>
