Good morning! It's July 4, 2020. As my significant other said last night, we're halfway through the year--and what a year this has been!

While we've all been quarantined and masked and socially distant--I've taken advantage of the time to do a bit of amateur gardening (still learning stuff) and writing. I thought I'd provide a brief update of what's going on with my writing world in the month of July. 

For the months of July and August, I have a new boxed set on sale! Sale price is $0.99 for the six ebooks now through August 31. The price will go up to $6.99 September 1. Here are the details. 

On Sale Now! 99 cents 

This Sweet to Heat Summer Romance Reads box set includes six romance novels by Maddie James, all set in the summer or at the beach--perfect for your summer binge-reading pleasure! 

The books are arranged in "sweet to heat" order, with the sweeter books appearing in the first half of the set, and the sexier and more gritty books coming in the second half. Just like summer, these stories gradually build the heat level as you keep reading!

Included in this set are the following books: 

Taking a Chance - Sammi rescues a cat and gives the feline a furever home. Did she find her forever man in the process? This sweet summer romance convinces Sammi that even she deserves love.

The Heartbreaker - Dr. Sam Kirk broke Lucki's heart in high school. Years later, he's moved back home to her gossipy small town. Will Lucki give the good doctor a second chance to break her heart?

Crazy for You - A vacation romance run amok. Does what happens in Jamaica always stay in Jamaica? Free-spirit Tasha meets buttoned-up Andrew in this opposites-attract beach romantic comedy.

Protecting Sarah - Sarah just wants to fulfill her contract singing at a Texas summer BBQ. Cole wants to keep her safe from her out-of-control manager. Can a love at first sight weekend turn into the happily-ever-after neither of them are sure they want? The romance heats up in this western cowboy romance!

A Perfect Escape - For every woman who dares to escape.... A changed identity, a secluded island, a sniper. Megan is finally out of danger--but did she run into the arms of more trouble? This steamy romantic suspense novel will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Her Forever Love - Tory finds herself stranded on a beach in another time. Colt tries to quiet his demons so he can write his next bestselling novel. Can lost souls reunite across time--when all hope at love has been abandoned? This time-travel suspense novel will grip your heart.
