A Fierce Series #Mgtab @Natalieann121

When I started the Fierce Five over 2 years ago I just figured it’d be a five book series and I’d move onto something else. But then I decided to do a prequel with Gavin and Jolene Fierce to put them into our Love, Christmas boxed set collection (which hit the USA Today Bestseller list!). But the more I wrote about the Fierce Five the more I loved this family and didn’t want to stop.

Come to find out, I wasn’t alone. My readers loved them too!! I was getting emails and FB comments asking when the next one would be out. And how sad they’d be when the series ended.

So what did I do? I used my creative license and introduced seven of their cousins. Now I find myself falling in love with these seven and their parents as much as I did Jolene and Gavin along with their five kids.

The first of the Fierce Family was released just this week. Fierce-Sam. Check him out! I think he’s just as hot as the Fierce-Five. And already, I’m getting rave reviews with readers stating they can’t wait for the rest of the family.

If you haven’t read any of the Fierce Five, you can start with How Gavin Stole Christmas for just 99 cents. Or read all the books for free on Kindle Unlimited.

A Recipe For Love @Natalieann121 #mgtab

Take an ex-Navy SEAL security expert that has demons he’s trying to outrun. Guilt piled on his shoulders higher than Mount Olympus and mistakes he’ll never forgive himself for.

Then add in the lone girl of the Fierce Five. The one that is always calm, cool, collected, and in control. Who puts her family business and obligations before any personal life. Why? Because it seems no one wants her for her, but rather her name.

Mix them together and you get Fierce-Ella. Two strong-willed individuals both looking for love—secretly from each other for years.

When I started the Fierce Five Series over two years ago I made sure to build each of the siblings characters exponentially in the next book. I’ve always had a deeper connection to my heroes than my heroines. But by time I got to Ella’s story, I realized she was by far my favorite all along. Watching her journey through each book while her brothers fell in love and she supported them was nothing short of…loving from a woman that most called cold.

Fierce-Ella will be released on Feb 19th and though I originally thought that would be the end of the series, I just couldn’t bring myself to do that. Not when I’ve become so close to this family. (Yes, authors get attached to their characters as if they are living in those worlds with them). So in the summer of 2019, I will be releasing Fierce-Sam, the first of the Fierce Family. The Fierce Five have 7 cousins that were introduced in Cade’s book. Of course they need their own stories!

Until then, enjoy Fierce-Ella. Or Brody, Aiden, Mason, and Cade. Each book can be read as a stand-alone or in any order. And if you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, then you can read them FREE! Or for 99 cents you can check out their parents story in How Gavin Stole Christmas!

 

2018 Equals 16 New Releases! #mgtab @Natalieann121

Yes, you read that right. I released sixteen new books in 2018!! Talk about shocking myself!

I set a goal for myself to release twelve. One book a month. Most were going to be novellas. What I forgot was I had several series going and I couldn’t put them on the backburner either. Like most authors, we get attached to the families we write about and they were screaming in my head to let them out.

My sixteenth book will be released on December 18th. Winter Love.

Most of the books for the year were novellas that were part of the Love Collection. Nine of them to be exact. Each book is only 99 cents or can be read for free on Kindle Unlimited. And each book is a stand alone story of love, romance, and happy ever after. You can read them in any order that you want.

Five of the books that were released were part of my Fierce Five Series. I’ve really come to love this family! So much so, in 2019, I decided to expand it to the Fierce Family with all their cousins. It’s a big family and will take some time, but I’m thrilled to get it started.

I also released one book from my All Series and one from my Lake Placid Series. I can’t seem to let these families go either, so in 2019, I’m going to revisit them and put a book or two out for them too.

Will I release sixteen books in 2019 again? My guess is no. Most of the books I’m going to focus on will be novels for my series, which take longer to write. That being said, I’d still like to release a book a month next year and once I set a goal for myself… I almost always achieve it!!

Love, Christmas…How Gavin Stole Christmas #mgtab @NatalieAnn121

I’m thrilled to say I’ve got the honor of the first post for our Love, Christmas- Movies You Love boxed set coming out on October 16, 2018. It’s made up of 26 brand new Christmas stories of our choice. For the next several months there will be two posts a week by the fabulous authors of this set. Stay tuned for more personal tidbits.

Also, if you enter here, you can have a chance to get one of our stories dedicated to YOU! And the best part of all of this is the book is only 99 cents!!!

My story is How Gavin Stole Christmas. As you can probably guess, my Christmas movie was How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Why did I choose this as my Christmas movie? The Grinch was me for a long time. My mother Natalie (the real Natalie Ann) was born in December and unfortunately passed away in December, one week before her birthday at the tender age of 47.

When I was a kid, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She’d had five reoccurrences or new diagnoses of cancer over 17 years. Every time it was around the holidays. As you can imagine, it made celebrating difficult for us as a family.

Nineteen years ago I was lucky enough to welcome my son into this world, Nathan. Yes, we named him after my mother, who coincidentally was born on her father’s birthday, the first Nate. And though my mother would never get to meet her namesake, it was one of the best honors I could do for the woman who taught me to never give up and always go after my dream.

My world changed after Nate was born. I was so excited, and my husband and I wanted to celebrate those holidays with him. Little by little, the joy of being a parent myself helped me overcome my “Grinch” status.

If you’ve followed my Fierce Five Series, then you know all about Gavin and Jolene Fierce along with Jolene’s matchmaking ways with her five kids, Brody, Aiden, Mason, Cade, and Ella. Many people have asked about Gavin and Jolene’s story and I thought, why not?!

In How Gavin Stole Christmas, he too was affected with the loss of a parent at Christmas and it turned him sour on all things holiday. But then Jolene came into his life and she made him see that we can’t always be locked up in the past.

Check out How Gavin Stole Christmas, along with 26 other great holiday stories now!

You can buy Love, Christmas—Movies You Love at Amazon and other retailers.
