Eight Books for 99 cents!

I am excited to be one of the featured authors in an anthology of romantic suspense books, eight in all available on kindle for only 99 cents. The Ultimate Romantic Suspense Box.
Nancy Radke is one of my co-anthologists. Today she is talking about her featured book, Courage Dares.

Thanks for inviting me today, Roxanne.
Courage Dares was born out of a summer spent working in a forest fire lookout, which I did with my husband, and a course in winter survival that my husband took. For their "field trip," they used snowshoes and hiked into the Cascades and spent the night in their tents. We owned a backpacker's tent that was large compared to the others, and my husband was the envy of his group. One man did not follow the leader's advice and became hypothermic. They got him warmed up just in time.

That gave me a background for a cliff-hanger suspense story. The heroine, Mary, has heavy emotional issues. As a child, she saw her mother stabbed to death, then her father was recently killed when he tried to stop a jewelry store robbery (which took place in the book, Stolen Secrets). With so many issues on the heroine's part, I needed a strong hero. His issue was that he had never lost. His teams always won, he was top in his class, he was a fighter pilot. So every time he thinks he's rescued Mary, and gotten away from the killers who kidnapped them, he fails. He doesn't give up, but only because that isn't an option. He has to fight through this new feeling of not being able to win.

The Box is available at this price for a limited time only. Click on the link above to get yours today and enjoy great stories like Nancy's.

Nancy's Bio:
Nancy Radke grew up on a  ranch in SE Washinton State. She attended a one-room country school through the eighth grade. She learned to ride bareback at age 3 (Really! It was a common practice.) She spent most of her childhood exploring the Blue Mountain trails that bordered the ranchlands. These long rides provided plenty of time to make up stories. Her first novel was set in the Blues, and is entitled APPALOOSA BLUES. TURNAGAIN LOVE was the first one published. It rated a four star review from Affaire de Coeur.

Her next book was CLOSED DOORS, a novel about a man who couldn't read. This was especially interesting to Ms. Radke, as she taught remedial reading, sixth grade, and other classes as a school teacher. All her stories are linked by characters who know each other from book to book. Also her books have a theme.

She has gone through survival and outward bound training, including long-distance ocean swimming. Facts from this training shows up in COURAGE DARES and SPIRIT OF A CHAMPION. Her western ranching background shows up in the pioneer series, The Traherns, and APPALOOSA BLUES.


Boxed set of #1-4 of the Sisters of Spirit novels. This gives you four super reads, ranging from a simple love story in Turnagain Love to a life and death struggle in Courage Dares. All are sweet, contemporary romances with lots of action but without the language or sex offered by many authors. These are safe to give to teenagers, grandparents, and anyone wanting pure romance.

What a varied life you've led Nancy! I'm amazed at all of the former educators I've discovered as I've jumped into writing and publishing. It was great meeting you at Emerald City.

Love your books, Nancy. Every story you write carries a person into an adventure that keeps the reader spellbound. (Hey good title for a book?? LOL) It was a priviledge being in the same collection as yourself and Roxanne.

What an exciting camping trip. My hubby is a scout leader and does a lot of backpack camping and such. I don't know that I could do it... he loves it.

I'm excited about the book. Sounds like a great character pairing!

This sounds like a fabulous read! And it's interesting to read how your background contributes to story development. You don't often have the teaching background paired with training in survival.
