TOM’S ANGEL is released as E-Book
Hello! It’s been too long since I’ve stopped by LindaGeorge.net. I hope to visit more often this year. During my long silence, though, I’ve been busy writing new books! The covers for my two early 2014 releases are above. Let me tell you a little about each book.
My new historical romance, Tom’s Angel, will be available for purchase on Amazon this weekend! And there’s something really special about this book! It’s a sequel to a novel I published long ago for Harlequin Historiclas–Gabriel’s Heart, written under my pseudonym Madeline George. Gabriel’s Heart is currently available in e-book format from HH, so if you haven’t read the first book in this series, you can still get it! There will be four novels in this series. I’ll let you know when to look for Will’s Lady and Bo’s Fancy.
Tom McCabe has been asked by his father to go to Ft. Worth to escort a young woman back to Denver. When Tom gets to the house where this young woman lives, he is shocked by its location. What kind of woman lives among prostitutes?
Rosalie Kincannon lives in the infamous Hell’s Half Acre, where “soiled doves” ply their trade in saloons and dance halls. Rosalie’s father, William, owns the Yellow Rose and relies on Rosalie to serve as nurse and midwife to the women who work there. The women call her “an angel to the soiled doves.”
Rosalie promised her mother she would never become one of the women she cares for, that she’d be a “proper lady.” But Rosalie has never had an opportunity to leave the Acre and pursue a life of her own with a husband and children.
When her father uses her as a bet in a card game—and loses—she is suddenly faced with being indentured to a vile man from Denver whose intentions toward her are anything but “proper.”
When Tom arrives at Rosalie’s door, he is shocked to find a lady whose life in the Acre is truly hell. He vows to find a way to release her from the indenture, so her dream of being a proper lady will be achieved. But there are other problems standing in his way that involve his father and his two brothers, Will and Bo and the McCabe Ranch he’s called home all his life.
Tom never dreamed he’d find the woman destined to share his life in Hell’s Half Acre. He had to come to hell to find an angel.

COMING IN MARCH 2014
Kiss Me, Lynn
This is the second novel in the Kiss Me Series that began with Kiss Me, Chloe last April. This novel is special to me because the setting is (surprise!) Machu Picchu! The novel is doubly special because our wonderful tour guide, Alex Vereau, gave me permission to use his name, his photo, and bits and pieces of stories he told us about his career as a guide. That’s Alex on the cover, above a photo I took of Machu Picchu with bromeliads blooming in the foreground. I’ll be telling you more as the book’s release gets closer. My goal, while telling you Alex and Lynn’s story, is to give you a feeling of what it’s like to be at Machu Picchu, the sacred city of the Inca.
I promised photos of our amazing trip to Machu Picchu last July and I promise they’ll be posted soon! We took more than 2000 photos during the twelve days we toured Lima, Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Inca, and Machu Picchu and it’s taken months to get them cropped and labeled and put in order. At last, I’ll be able to share them with you. They’ll be posted sometime next week, so please check back to get a glimpse of our amazing experience of walking where the Inca walked, seeing what the Inca saw, and feeling their presence in the only place the Spanish didn’t find and destroy. Machu Picchu has been named one of the Wonders of the World. After being there, I agree with that designation 100%
