Shattered Rainbows, book #5 in my Fallen Angels series, is currently free on most ebook platforms and will continue to be free for about another week. I'm writing this blog partly to talk about the book, but also explain some of the marketing decisions that go into why a book might be free.
Shattered Rainbows is a favorite book of mine. (For the record, Romantic Times gave it a 4 1/2 star GOLD rating and it was a RITA finalist.) I could probably say that almost anything I've written is a favorites, but that's especially true in this case. Lord Michael Kenyon is one of the most intense and tortured heroes I've ever written, and he has a lot of baggage to work through, complicated by the fact that he's a British Army officer and the battle of Waterloo is a key feature of the story.
I have no idea why I'm fascinated by British military history in the Napoleonic period, but I keep coming back to it time and time again. Partly that's because it was a 'good war,' fighting against an authoritarian Continental monster. Lots of drama for stories! Characters are tested in the crucible of battle, and in none of my books has that been truer than in Shattered Rainbows.
