And Then THIS Happened

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Some of you may have seen my post about gaming hells over at the Risky Regencies or seen me tweeting about some of the research. One of the things I came across was a reference to maggot racing and how to cheat at it, and Meljean Brook and I had a hilarious twitter exchange about the story I said I was going to write: Miss Fiona Harper’s Night of Passion, in which Miss Fiona Harper’s brother accidentally kills his racing maggot and loses his sister to the notorious Lord Hawke.

I’m totally going to write that story as soon as I finish Surrender to Ruin. And so…

An embracing couple in Regency clothing. Tots romantic

Books From Yours Truly

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

It’s been mad busy here at Jewel HQ and it occurred to me that I have neglected to mention books that are available to buy or pre-order. I have more coming your way so stay tuned for more exciting news.

A Seduction in Winter – On Sale Now

A Seduction in Winter, my novella from Christmas in Duke Street, is available as a standalone purchase.

He’s an artist and a duke’s heir. She’s sheltered and scarred. Can he show her by Christmas that love can be theirs to share?

As the holidays approach, Lieutenant Leoline Marrable, now Lord Wrathell, travels to London where he’s expected to fulfill longstanding expectations and propose to his former commander’s daughter. Wrathell longs to ease the strained relationship with his ducal father. The key may be an unfinished portrait of his late brother.

Honora Baynard has a terrible facial scar as a result of a childhood injury. She has never forgotten Leoline, who came to her defense when other children tormented her. Now, her over-protective artist father keeps her indoors, creating the beautiful detail work that makes his paintings so sought after.

As Wrathell and Honora spend more time together, mutual interest becomes mutual attraction. Can Wrathell convince Honora that for Christmas, he’d like to give her not only passion and pleasure, but his heart to keep for her own?

If you like sensual romance, complex characters, and witty dialogue, you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s latest refreshing Regency tale.

My Immortals Series Box Set

I’ve put together a box set of four of the books from the My Immortals Series. It’s on pre-order now and will release May 10, 2016. The pre-order price increases May 17th, so a pre-order locks in the lower price of $7.99 US.

The first three remain with my traditional publisher so I’m unable to include them. But with this box set you’ll get four books in the series: Free Fall (a novella), My Dangerous Pleasure (a novel), My Darkest Passion (a novel), and Dead Drop (a shorter-ish novel).

I’m not able to get a pre-order at Nook, alas. In addition, I have no plans for a print version. The cost would be prohibitive since the total word count would be well over 250,000 words which would push 1000 pages.

Upcoming Releases

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

I’m going through all my books and sending them out for reformatting by someone who isn’t me because I’ve decided it’s not a good use of my time. The changes will be exceedingly minor — basically just the formatting. I’ve got some pretty custom dingbats for the interiors and a nifty newsletter icon to include in my books.

In the next two months I’ll be releasing two historical romance novellas that previously appeared in anthologies and uploading new files for the two novellas already on sale. All four will have print versions. In addition, I had all four re-edited/copy-edited/proofed so they’re consistent as to punctuation etc. There are no changes to the stories, but they all went through slightly different editorial processes and I wanted to make sure everything was consistent.

I’m planning a boxed set of these, to be priced competitively compared to purchasing all four individually.

The four novellas are below.

My Demon Warlord – Updated Blurb

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

I’ve tweaked the back cover copy for My Demon Warlord. What do you think?

Version 2.1

A Demon Warlord Bound by Dark Magic to the Powerful Witch he’s Desired For Years.

Kynan Aijan’s centuries-long enslavement to a mage left him borderline insane and bound to Maddy Winters, a witch he intended to kill in horrible ways. Though he’s sworn the bonds they share will never be completed, their very existence feeds his desire for her even as he accepts that Winters will never forgive him.

For Maddy Winters the fight against evil magic users always takes top priority. But her bonds to Kynan give her intimate access to his thoughts and experiences, and  she can’t always ignore their chemistry. Her insistence that she has no feelings for him is a deception she can’t afford to give up.

As Kynan and Maddy join forces to stop a rebellious and murderous witch, the dark magic that binds them locks them into forbidden passions and magic that could destroy them both . Will their fight for what’s right lead to a fight for each other?

My Demon Warlord is the seventh installment in the My Immortals series of paranormal romance novels. If you like magical supernatural tales, explosive chemistry, and irresistible passion, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s latest breathtaking romance.

My Demon Warlord – Back Cover Copy

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

So …. what do you think of this?

An extremely powerful demon. A no-strings-attached witch. Is their business really just pleasure?

Kynan Aijan’s centuries-long enslavement to a mage left him borderline insane, and he holds all witches responsible. His encounter with Maddy Winters is supposed to end with him killing her in horrible ways but instead ends with magical bonds he must swear will never be completed. As he regains his sanity, he accepts that Winters will never forgive him.

No ordinary witch, Maddy Winters isn’t big on relationships. The fight against evil magic users always takes top priority. But her bonds to Kynan give her intimate access to his thoughts and experiences, and soon her instance that she has no feelings for him becomes a deception she can’t afford to give up.

As Kynan and Maddy join forces to stop a rebellious and murderous witch, they can’t help but feel the pull of the dark magic that binds them. Will their fight for what’s right lead to a fight for each other?

My Demon Warlord is the seventh installment in the My Immortals saga, a series of paranormal romance novels. If you like magical supernatural tales, explosive chemistry, and sensual sexual encounters, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s latest breathtaking romance.
