New HEART Releases and Goodreads Giveaway

I love a strong villain or villainess and couldn’t resist bringing one back. As the pages of THE CAPTIVE HEART open, an old adversary returns from the past (THE DEFIANT HEART) to seek revenge. But when the beautiful Ailénor is mistakenly kidnapped, only the handsome Saxon, Garreth of Tamworth, can save her. Join Garreth and Ailénor as their story sweeps from the ducal court of Normandy, to Anglo-Saxon England and the cliffs of Ireland.

Visit for more information and purchase links, and don’t miss the free sample chapters for all three books of the HEART trilogy in Sampler #2. Go to our SAMPLERS PAGE on the Kathleen Kirkwood website for links.

PLEASE NOTE: Although SAMPLER #2 is available on Kindle, it has not yet been price matched to FREE, as on the other platforms. Until such time, it is offered at the lowest possible price of 99 cents.

Also, don’t miss out on the Goodreads Giveaway of THE DEFIANT HEART which remains open until 7/20/13 . . .

Happy reading. I hope you enjoy the HEART trilogy!
