Welcome gift + Giveaway


Hello readers!

Many of you are new to us, and we would like to give you a free copy of a short story we wrote back in 2012. (Even if you've been with us since the beginning, you are more than welcome to download the story.)

One of the best things about our career as a self-published author is the direct engagement with our readers.

So if you want to get in touch with us, please do. You might have a question about one of our books. Maybe you have an idea for a future Forbidden couple, antagonist, or storyline. Or you might have a general question about writing or publishing. Or maybe you've spotted something you think we could do better.

Whatever it is, please drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you!

Now…the fun stuff.

Summer Heat is a short story about a woman who has to return home to be a bridesmaid in her step-sister’s wedding…to her ex-boyfriend. It’s a fun, contemporary, 4,000-word story. It’s the definition of short and sweet.

You can claim your copy of Summer Heat here.

Also, Brazen Bookshelf is hosting an Instafreebie paranormal romance giveaway. Lots of great FREE books to claim! It's summer, get that TBR list piled up. And the best part is you can enter to win a Kindle Fire HD 8 with Alexa!


We try not to send you updates very often, just when there is a new book in the works or a deal that we think you might like to know about.  Sometimes we join other authors in giveaways, like above, and we always want to let you know about them for a chance to win or get free books. We've participated in a lot lately so we've been putting out more emails than normal. It's not always this way.

Remember, we love hearing from you. Don’t hesitate to come visit us at our website or our Facebook page.

We hope you enjoy our short story and that you pick up some great books from the giveaway!

Happy reading!

About the author

R.L. Kenderson

R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name.
Renae has always loved reading, and in third grade, she wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then, she knew she wanted to write her own.
When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own.
