Hey! It’s a free paranormal romance novel!

It’s been an exciting week for a couple of reasons. One, my book, The Magician’s Curse, scored a spot on Kobo’s free page. Only six books are chosen per week in each featured category, so the ebooks have been flying off the virtual shelves!

Check it out here!

What’s really cool? I’ve distributed my book to 26 countries this week. Here’s the map.

Enter a world of dark family secrets …

Herman believes setting out to make a better life for herself will solve all her problems. Until she meets a charming, mysterious stranger on a train.

The moment Stephen Dagmar sets eyes on Herman, he knows he’s found a new assistant to join him onstage in his magic show. And the woman of his dreams.

At home in Stephen’s Gothic mansion, Herman revels in the extravagant romance he lavishes upon her. Yet a shadow hangs over their fragile love. Is his devotion really what it seems?

Amidst lace and leather, innocence and debauchery, The Magician’s Curse begins the spellbinding tale of The Great Dagmaru.

The Magician’s Blood is up for an award!!

I’m so excited! Not only has The Magician’s Blood been nominated for the Reviewer’s Choice Award by the Paranormal Romance Guild, my entire series is up for an award too!

The PNR Guild is arguably the place to go to find excellence in paranormal romance. I was so happy last year when The Magician’s Curse won in the category of Gothic romance. This year, they have me in Fantasy-Demons, Devils and Angels, which actually fits better with the sub-genre of the second book.

But in order to win, I need your help. All you have to do is be signed in to your Google account and then go to the following link and vote:

https://www.paranormalromanceguild.com/2018-prg-reviewers-choice-awards-ballot/

My categories are about a third of the way down the page. Make sure you vote in both categories: once for the book and once for the series. You only get one chance to vote per Google account you own, so make it count! Voting ends on January 29th.

I’m thrilled to be nominated! So much so, that to celebrate, I’m going to drop the price of The Magician’s Blood to 99 cents for one day only–tomorrow, which is my birthday!!

Your support is appreciated immensely!

The Magican’s Blood – now available in paperback!

🎩He’s a magician with a dark family secret …

❤️She’s his assistant, the love of his life …

🌹A prophesy, a curse, and his incubus bloodline conspire to come between them. Will she survive?

Finally, The Magician’s Blood, Book 2 of The Great Dagmaru series is available in paperback on Amazon!

“Unforgettable and gutsy. Linda G. Hill is a force to be reckoned with.” ~ Jessica Cale, best-selling author of Tyburn.

Herman Anderson is in love. Thrilled to travel across Canada with her boyfriend as his assistant onstage, she returns to her hometown—the first stop on the Great Dagmaru magic tour. Anticipating a reunion with her brother, instead she finds her family has moved without a trace.

Stephen Dagmar’s career as a stage magician is taking off. With Herman by his side, his only concern is her father’s dislike for him. But as Herman’s father makes a prediction and resolves to come between them, Stephen’s family curse returns to haunt him.

Darkness descends as the reality of the Dagmar’s incubus bloodline surfaces for the first time in over a generation. Can Herman and Stephen’s relationship survive this new trial? Will Herman survive at all?

A sinful tale of beauty and romance, love and determination, The Magician’s Blood will chill you and leave you breathless for more.

*18+ Contains explicit scenes.

I had to go to sleep behalf way through, but got back to it after work and finished it. Good story. Interesting dilemma for an honest man in love. Looking forward to the second in the series. ~ 5 Stars – Loves to read and review, Amazon.com

This book was great. From the wonderful characters, to the amazingly believable unbelievable story line. Confused? Well, although we all know magic isn’t real, the author makes it all make sense. This story about a young woman, Herman, and the man she meets. He is trying to break a curse that was placed on his family. i feel like i would be giving away spoilers by continuing. So, just read the book and you won’t be disappointed. The only complaint i have is I wanted to continue reading the next story now. ~ 4 Stars – hlee, Amazon.com

I must say Ms. Hill writes a very engaging story about two very interesting characters who meet and fall in love. I normally do not read books with younger characters, but this talented author had me hooked from the very beginning. I love mystery with a darker side and truly enjoyed The Magician’s Curse. I eagerly await more from Ms. Hill. Hope she is a fast writer! ~ 5 Stars – Lorey Frazher, Amazon.com
