Newby In The House

Hello New Friends,

My name is Jackie Castle. I'm the author of over 20 Christian Romances and Inspirational Fantasy (with also a bit of romance woven in).

This is my first post and I just wanted to hop in and let you know a little about me. Here's the blah, blah stuff: I'm a mom of two, married for 31 years now and a grammy of two gran-dolls.

I've loved writing stories since I was a sixth grader in elementary school and my teacher read my first story to the whole class.

That's when I knew what I really wanted to grow up to be. And 40 years later, I'm finally working as a full-time author. (I had a few side-trips and missed turns in Albuquerque on the way.)

Ha. Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick intro and invite you to check out my Story World webpage.

There you can click on either the Romance tab or Fantasy tab and learn more about my various series.

Today, I'm going to leave you with a welcoming gift and an offer to try out my newest release.

First, please enjoy my romance novella Secretly In Love for free. Follow the link to find your favorite distributor. 

Sage Dolan glances at Nikolai Prater and inwardly regretted the high school pact she’d made with him and her BFF, Moi Tamsyn, that the three of them would be friends forever. Nothing but friends. Yet, when Nikolai returned from his mission trip last year, Sage’s feelings for him exploded and the pact gets harder and harder to keep.

Then on April fool’s day, she receives a letter from a secret admirer. A joke from her twin siblings.

Nikolai’s life changed after the mission trip. One thing he has to face is his feelings for Sage. Pact or no pact, he needs to let her know how he feels. Overhearing Sage and Moi talk about how they wished they received real love letters, Nikolai comes up with the perfect solution. He sends her an anonymous love letter, but instead of love, he reaps the wild, whirlwind of Sage who is already angry about being made a fool of once and won’t stand for being the fool twice.

I'll pick one winner from those who leave a comment to win a copy of my newest release My Beastly Billionaire.  If you love fairytale retellings and billionaire romances, you'll love this series. 

His withdrawal from society and her need to prove her worth come to a head in this modern-day Beauty and the Beast retelling.

When Elisa Lucken's interior design company is hired to decorate the huge but neglected
Grimwood Manor for an impromptu holiday gala, Elisa is put in charge of managing the indoor crew. The only catch is--do not disturb the reclusive Duncan Grimwood.

Thrilled and excited about her chance to finally prove herself, Elisa is so absorbed in her work she doesn't hear the blizzard warning that sends the rest of her crew home.

Jewelry Artisan, Duncan Grimwood, had a reputation of being a playboy until the motorcycle accident that left him damaged inside and out. After a year of recuperating, Duncan has withdrawn from his lavish lifestyle and now lives like a hermit ignoring his family and the conditional terms of his inheritance trust.

Worried that Duncan will lose his portion of the Grimwood estate, his personal assistant urges him to re-enter the real world by hosting a holiday gala at the manor to display his latest works. He agrees on the condition that nobody disturbs him while he works to finish his last few pieces.

Snowed in for the weekend with his unexpected guest, Duncan is forced out of his cave.

Will the beautiful decorator he's stuck with help him find a new respect for life before he loses everything? 
Thanks for stopping in today! I'll be here every month on the 20th. I'm so looking forward to making new friends, and perhaps meeting some already established friends who frequent this site.
Blessings to you all!
Jackie C.
