Gotta love a Cowboy, especially when he’s on sale!

For all of those who may have been sad that you didn’t live in Canada during Kobo’s Canada Day sale this week — and come on, why wouldn’t you be sad you didn’t live up here? Oh yeah, there is all that snow for six months of the year…

Anyway, I got off track. Harlequin is celebrating our love of cowboys this whole month, and so they’re featuring my Jake from No Accounting for Cowboys by putting it on sale for 99 cents until the end of July. (North Americans only — sorry to my international readers.)

So here’s your chance to read Jake’s story for under a buck. If you haven’t already bought it, you should know that Jake will always be right up there with Sam and Brett when it comes to my favorite characters. I seem to have a thing for wounded men…

Happy Canada Day from Kobo Canada

Canadian button 100x100Kobo and Harlequin are featuring my very own No Accounting for Cowboys as part of this week’s Canada Day celebrations.  From June 30th to July 6th, No Accounting for Cowboys will be on sale for just 99 cents on KOBO CANADA’s website.


Jake Grady loves Bull’s Hollow ranch and all the challenges and hard work it entails. But the past year hasn’t been easy—his father’s good name has been tarnished, and new financial problems are threatening to destroy everything the Gradys have built. Performing live under a stage name has become his escape, a way of blowing off some serious steam.

Impossible to put down; No Accounting For Cowboys was filled with twists, turns, and secrets new and old making it another fine offering from author Leah Braemel. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Accountant Paige Reynolds found Jake’s guitar-playing alter ego intriguing, but her connection with the real Jake sends her attraction into overdrive. When she’s summoned to make order out of the chaotic paper trail at Bull’s Hollow, he sets her world a-rocking—both in bed and out. But Paige has a plan; she’s determined to create her own path for the future, but is soon left scrambling for firmer ground.

Good news about Jake’s potential singing career is followed by the revelation of another family secret, one that has him questioning whether he belongs at Bull’s Hollow at all. But leaving the ranch would mean leaving his family…and Paige. How much is he willing to give up for a real shot at fame?

Happy 5th Birthday, Carina Press

I can’t believe it’s five years since Carina Press opened their doors. I’d been one of their launch authors with Texas Tangle — as Carina Press Editorial Director  (and my editor) Angela James Carina Press Anniversaryblogged about today. Since then I’ve written (and they’ve published) Tangled Past, my holiday story I Need You for Christmas which was part of the Red Hot Holiday anthology, and Slow Ride Home and No Accounting for Cowboys, the first two of my Grady Legacy series books. (With a third coming soon–I promise!)

They are doing a contest for a Carina Press prize pack, so be sure to drop over and find out how to enter. They are also holding a one-day-only sale where all their books are 55% off if you use the coupon code HAPPY5 when you check out. (the discount ends tonight at midnight.)
