Available Soon from DDD: Marching Home, a 20th Century Historical Romance

My next book is titled Marching Home. This 20th century historical (WWII) romance, a 34,000 word novella, will be available soon.

Marching Home by Daisy Dexter Dobbs

About Marching Home:

Clara knows better than to get mixed up with a serviceman during wartime. But she loses all rational thought when she meets Jimmy at the USO dance. The charming army private, in Chicago for a three-day leave, turns her world upside down.

The few precious days they share before he ships out on Christmas Eve are infused with more love, laughter and romance than most couples experience in a lifetime. Blissfully enveloped in a seventy-two hour whirlwind of discovery, passion and emotion, it soon becomes clear that their hearts and souls are entwined together forever.

Jimmy promises Clara he’ll come marching home to her. The magic of true love ensures that he’ll keep that vow.

About the Golden Times series:

Featuring the stories of the residents of the Golden Times Retirement Center, first introduced in Daisy’s Greek Delights series. Each story takes place in another era - the 1940s, 50s or 60s, which makes them 20th century historicals. Most of the tales are romances, some lighthearted and some more serious. Some women’s fiction stories will also be included. Another unifying thread among the books is that each story is touched by magic in a special way.

It’s Amazing What a Man Will Do for Love

Darling Scarecrow, Kindle Countdown Deal

Darling Scarecrow - Greek Delights, Book 3 (contemporary romance/romantic comedy). Here’s what the story’s about:

With her two best friends happily involved with the men they love, Lottie Dolan can’t help but wonder if she’ll ever find Mr. Right. Along with her new job comes a smoking hot boss, but the surly, sexy Greek is all brains and no heart. The man is so mired in sales statistics and market projections he'd probably be oblivious if she came to work naked.

With the success or failure of the first American branch of his family's olive oil business at stake, Alexandros Kokoris is entirely focused on business. At least he should be. Frustrated by his inability to concentrate at the mere thought of his curvy secretary, he's about to blow a gasket. True, the American woman is sexy as hell, but she’s a hopeless romantic, bent on transforming him into a touchy-feely guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. And that’s never going to happen.

They keep things all business, until Lottie’s friend, Polly, a diehard matchmaker, makes it her business to “fix” things and turn them into lovebirds. In the process, Alex gets a black eye, Lottie is mauled, and a pair of ruby red slippers fuels the chaos.

Inspiration, a Kindle Countdown Deal, True Love and Baklava

The Inspiration: I’m not in the habit of posting photos of hotties but I’m making an exception today. When I spotted this photo online about a year ago I was gobsmacked. This gorgeous guy is exactly, I mean EXACTLY, the way I pictured Nick (Nikolas) and George (Yorgo) Kokoris while writing their stories. I don’t know who he is or who photographed him, all I know is he’s the epitome of my Greek Delights series heroes!

Kokoris Inspiration

The Kindle Countdown Deal: I’m so excited! Starting today, May 15, through May 22, Chocolate Gratitude (Greek Delights, book 2) is an Amazon Kindle Countdown Deal!

So what does that mean?

These are fabulous timed sales events Amazon runs, displaying a little countdown clock letting customers know how much longer the book will be at a particular price. For instance, a book might start at 99-cents and stay there a day or two, then go to $1.99, then $2.99, then $3.99 and so on until it goes back to full price. I love the idea!

My Chocolate Gratitude Kindle Countdown Deal will end May 22 - and then a new deal begins for Darling Scarecrow (Greek Delights, book 3)! Yay!
