Book 1 – Sands of the Solar Empire

GET THE BRANDY TO BAZZ . . .That’s all Paymaster Stenstrom, the Lord of Belmont-South Tyrol, has to do and the old warbird Seeker is his. He has dreamed of captaining a Fleet ship his entire life. Little does Paymaster Stenstrom realize that he is in the grip of an old Vendetta and the short trip to Bazz might very well be his last. Faced with a dead ship and a lost crew, Paymaster Stenstrom finds help in the strangest places: the thief Marine and the milquetoast young man from the Admiral’s office, and, though he just became acquainted with these two strangers, he discovers they have been influencing each other’s lives for a very long time. Something sinister hovers over Paymaster Stenstrom and his two new friends, something they are only now becoming aware of. The SANDS OF THE SOLAR EMPIRE stretch out before them in an endless gulf brimming with the unknown. Can a masked Paymaster, a thief, a coward and a once great warbird face what awaits them?
Book 2 – Against the Druries

That’s what they say on Bazz, that the “Deep Sea”, the open space between the two planets, is cursed and full of bad dreams—but nobody ever listens to people from Bazz, do they?
Paymaster Stenstrom, Private Taara and Lord A-Ram struggle to navigate the Seeker, an old warbird, through the shipping lanes to Bazz. If the Paymaster can’t get to Bazz with his cargo of brandy, he loses the ship and will probably end up in jail as well. Jail? If only . . . The three adventurers are about to discover the old farfetched mariner stories are very real and that the Devil himself waits for the unwary in dark places where there is no help. The Circle closes in on Stenstrom, Taara and A-Ram, and its judgment for them is far worse than any jail cell. The Seeker is about of become just another ship that set sail from safe shores and was never heard from again, unless . . . The Belmont Saga concludes in this heartbreaking and action-packed tale of friendship and dedication, of vile evil and hopeless terror, and that sometimes help for those gone astray comes from the most unlikely of places.

She sighed. 
Ninety years of revenge and hatred. Lots of dust and an empty bed. 
Empty soul. 
Her sisters on Carina had taught her much: patience, skill and resolve.
The only thing they hadn’t taught her was how to live with an empty life full
of old bones and cold shadows. 
What of the sorrow, my sisters, what of that? You promised to rid me of
it, yet it remains. What am I to do?
Years ago, when she sat there by the sea holding the tiny Lord
Stenstrom—the man she was even now scheming to humiliate, then kill—that was
the only time in the past ninety years she’d been truly happy. How wondrous it
had been to hold a child in her arms and be a mother if only for a few moments.
Her sisters on Carina had taught her nothing of that. 

The Circle was closing in on her as well.

destinys-kiss-high-res-200x300Lady Annalyse Granville is the cursed second-born twin, feared by all and said to have been spawned by the devil. Hidden away in an abbey most her life, she now returns to her father’s castle at the request of her very pregnant sister who happens to be the king’s mistress. Things change in Annalyse’s life quickly as soon as one of her father’s guests, a Scot named Ross from Clan Douglas, traps her under the kissing bough – and she receives her first kiss.
A weary knight returning from King Richard’s crusade, Sir Rennington of Ashbourne comes back to England only to realize he is essentially homeless. His father has died and his elder brother has inherited everything. Unwanted, and nearly destitute, Ren finds his way to Derby Cathedral on a snowy December night to sleep and figure out what he is going to do with his life. As he dozes beneath the boughs of mistletoe, hung for the Christmastide season, he hears the chatter of two women as they plot against their eldest sister. A woman, they say, who lost her betrothed on Richard’s crusade and who has vowed never to wed.
Unfortunately, their wealthy father has declared that the eldest daughter, his heiress, must marry before the younger daughters can entertain suits of their own, so the two sisters hatch a scheme to force their sister to dream of the man she is to marry. They pluck berries from the Christmas boughs hung around the cathedral with the sole purpose of sneaking them beneath their eldest sister’s pillow so she will dream of her love.
As Ren hears the plot, he hatches one of his own… he will go to the eldest sister and coerce the woman into marrying him. No longer will he be homeless; he will marry a woman of wealth and assume her money. It seems like an excellent scheme but the moment he arrives at Thulston Manor, he realizes he may have gotten himself into a situation that will come back to haunt him. The heiress is not at all as he expected. And so begins the unconventional romance of Sir Rennington of Ashbourne and Lady Holly St. Maur.

As Cleetus and Sylvie help bring Christmas joy to the citizens of Westen, the holiday magic weaves its way into their hearts. Will the reason Sylvie left home come between them or can she stay Close To Santa’s Heart?

I am Katharine E. Hamilton… author, writer, ranch wife, little sister, friend, new mom, and did I mention, writer? 🙂
My journey as an author started in 2008 with a simple gift to my niece, Taylor. Creating her a story all her own for a Christmas present, and seeing her reaction to a unique story made me start thinking about diving into the writing world. How simple a spark that would then lead to my first published work, The Adventurous Life of Laura Bell. Each story has a story all its own, based on people I love and special memories I share with them.
Laura Bell hit the shelves in 2009 and I quickly began work on my next book, Susie At Your Service. While working on this one though, I had several minor set backs. Computers failing, an apartment flood that soaked my illustrations, you name it, it happened. So what I thought would take a few months ended up taking me a year and a half to rewrite and redraw the illustrations and another year to push the publication forward. While working on Susie, I also had an idea for another book, Sissy and Kat. Let’s just say the year of 2012 was a busy year. Two books, changing jobs, moving to three different cities, and planning a wedding… really add up! 🙂 But perseverance paid off, and Susie hit the shelves, officially, in January of 2013 followed by Sissy and Kat in March 2013.
As of April 3, 2015, my first fantasy fiction novel, The Unfading Lands, released on Amazon. Within it’s first four days, The Unfading Lands hit the Hot 100 New Releases, and has not slowed down from there. Part Two in The Unfading Land Series, Darkness Divided, released in October 2015 with a wonderful kick off and reached #20 on the Amazon Hot 100 list. Part Three, Redemption Rising, Part Three in The Unfading Lands released May 2016 and it did not disappoint either. The entire series has been nominated for the Summer Indie Book Awards of 2016, and The Unfading Lands, Book 1, has been nominated for the Best Indie Book Award for 2016.
As well as continuing the adventure in The Unfading Lands, I have also contributed a short story, If the Shoe Fits, to an Indie Author Anthology, by Ian D. Moore and Friends in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. All proceeds of sales of the anthology go straight to the charity. The anthology released in July 2015.
It has been quite a journey thus far and I am looking forward to several more chapters to come. I aim to keep you all informed on new releases, potential submissions, and all things new in the realm of Katharine E. Hamilton books. I also want to share this journey with my readers. As I continue paving my path in the book world, I hope that you would join me!

A once great love

Sold into marriage at sixteen, widowed at

has fallen on hard times.  Alone, shunned by society, and on the verge of
homelessness, she desperately searches for salvation.  When Almira

families for Christmas, she clings to hope, to the possibility of rescue, and
packs her best gowns.
Two broken hearts
Heir to a tarnished title, Lord Nicholas
Sheldon seeks to right the wrongs of his past, after his father is found

The Cajun Christmas on the
Bayou Celebration
 is an annual
event in the remote town of Fa La, Louisiana, nicknamed – Fa La La. It has
supported generations of the families who live in the tiny, isolated bayou
community. This year may be the last. Thanks to Hunter James who bought the
neighboring island, they can no longer use his land for a major part of the
celebration.  The island is his home where he expects to find much needed
peace and quiet.  He doesn’t want Christmas lights, music and revelers on
his land no matter what Fa La La’s beautiful advocate, Dr. Camille Comeaux,
says as she tries to change his mind…and changes his heart.

Will Camille fight to steal Hunter’s peace so
her family can have theirs?


If someone has to die in order to save the
citizens of Central City from the heinous experiments of Panthera Laboratories,
Oswald Addison would gladly volunteer. But a three-hundred-year-old vampire

or living with the knowledge he is responsible for their doomed
existence—especially when the life of the woman he loves is at stake.

For Selene Kittery, having to hold her own in
the male-dominated Vampire Guard is enough of a challenge. With Christmas right
around the corner and mistletoe hanging in doorways, controlling the impulse to
fall into the arms of the sexiest womanizer to walk the earth makes getting
through every night damn near impossible. As the iron-clad grip she’s kept on
her dignity weakens, Selene must face the truth about Oz.
Realizing Selene is Panthera’s next target, Oz
is forced to share the secret about what happened on the night they met and
risk losing her forever.

Days before Christmas, Lady Honoria Whitford
buys a book at the market to add to her prized collection. Lord Tristan de
Champagne, her brother’s best friend who will be spending the holidays with
them, is Intrigued by her love of romantic tales but resents how enchanting he
finds her, for he’s vowed never to risk his heart again. As Christmas mischief
under the Kissing Bough unfolds, so does the secret of the book—one destined to
bring great peril but also ever-after love.
Adelaide Farthingale’s journey from York to
London as Christmas approaches takes an unexpectedly romantic turn when Desmond
Cameron, the Marquis of Blackfell rescues her from an overturned carriage. The
problem is, she’s on her way to London to meet her intended husband and can’t
possibly fall in love with Desmond… can she? Adelaide keeps tucking that darn
kissing bough under her pillow in the hope of dreaming of the man she’s
supposed to marry, but Desmond keeps popping up in her dreams.
Desmond Cameron is in no hurry to marry and he certainly has no intention of
marrying Adelaide Farthingale, for as a marquis he can aim far higher than the
daughter of a merchant. But Adelaide, neglected by her father and raised in
isolation in a lonely abbey north of York, simply tugs at his heart. She’s as
hopeful as Desmond is cynical, and so eager to gain her father’s approval, that
she’s about to sacrifice her happiness by marrying his business partner. But
after a kiss under the mistletoe, Desmond knows Adelaide is the Christmas
miracle he’s been yearning for.
Welcome to the witchiest town in the
world––Haven Harbor, Massachusetts!
It’s the merriest of holidays and Yule and
Christmas celebrations bring out the mischief and mistletoe.  Caught under
the kissing bough, Annie Boylston and Reyn Shapleigh are elected the King and
Queen of the Yule Ball, and must spend the week in revelry and celebration.
Unfortunately, someone in town isn’t so happy
about the holidays.  An arsonist is trying to disrupt the joyful season,
bringing fire and destruction to Haven Harbor.  As the fire chief, Reyn is
on the front line, using every bit of his training and magick to find the
firebug.  Annie’s cooking store is one of the arsonist’s targets, as are
other thriving businesses in town.  As the fire of attraction grows
between Reyn and Annie, the arsonist gets bolder.  In a race to stop the fires,
Reyn and Annie find one another in this hot mistletoe tale!


Release Blitz: We All Fall Down by Karen Cimms

Being married to a rock star isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Kate and Billy McDonald have defied the odds. For twenty-four years they have loved each other fiercely, and it hasn’t always been easy.
On the road more than he’s home, bouncing from band to band, and fighting for a foothold in the music industry against the machinations of his former agent, Billy has struggled to make a name for himself. Frustrated and angry, he turns to drugs and alcohol to cope. Combined with the guilt of secrets he’s kept from Kate and a temper that flares like the strike of a match, he’s a ticking time bomb.
Amazed at how far they’ve come from their rough beginnings, Kate cherishes her life. Sure, there are things she’d change, like having Billy home more, having a better relationship with her daughter, and being able to do something really worthwhile. When a startling betrayal follows on the heels of an unbearable loss, Kate’s world spirals out of control, leaving her staggering and wondering if it’s even possible to pick up the pieces.
What happens when love implodes? Can we rise from the ashes, or will we all fall down?
We All Fall Down is the second book in the Of Love and Madness trilogy. A love story that unfolds over twenty-five years, it’s the tale of two damaged people trying to make their way in the world without destroying themselves or each other in the process.
Billy cursed under his breath.
“What’s wrong?” his agent, C.J., asked. “I thought this is what you wanted.”
“It is,” he whispered into the phone. “It’s just . . . the timing isn’t good. Katie’s—”
“Look, Billy, it’s only three weeks, but it’s a big three weeks. The new songs are great, but we gotta road test them. You keep this up and I can guarantee you a record deal, but I have to get you out there. People need to hear you. There was a lot of buzz after that performance in Miami this summer, and to tell the truth, the arrest and all the rest of it didn’t hurt that angry rock star image, either. There’s no bad publicity, not for someone like you, but fans have short memories.”
“I know,” he agreed, “and God knows I need the money—”
“Look, it’s just three weeks. She can’t be without you for three freaking weeks?”
Could she? She was getting worse, there was no doubt about it. But if she started seeing the doctor, and if he could talk her into staying with Rhiannon . . .
“I don’t know. I guess. I’ll figure something out.”
C.J. was all business. “Okay, then. I’ll have a car pick you up first thing Monday to bring you straight to the airport. I’ll meet you there, and we’ll sign the contracts. Just leave everything to me.”
“And Billy? I had to pull a lot of strings to get you on this leg of the tour. This is the perfect audience for you. Don’t screw this up. You’re not a cat. You don’t have nine lives, and even if you did, you’ve about run out.”
“Yeah, I get it. I’ll see you Monday.”
“That’s what I want to hear.”
A door clanged open. Tom stood and walked toward the hallway, then nodded in her direction. She tucked her clutch under her arm and followed.
Billy’s back was to her as she came around the corner. Snug black jeans hugged his long legs. A long-sleeved black shirt with the tails out and the cuffs turned up showed off the tattoos covering his forearms. His hair was messy and loose, hanging well past his shoulders. He and Tommy were speaking, and when Tommy glanced in her direction, Billy turned slowly, then snapped back to Tommy when he realized who was standing behind him.
“What the fuck is she doing here?” he practically growled. “I didn’t tell you to call her.”
“He didn’t call me,” she answered, hurt as well as angry. “And is that all you have to say?”
The man standing before her was a far cry from the one she’d kissed goodbye over two months ago. His neatly trimmed goatee had grown out into a scraggly beard. He needed a shower badly, and although it was the middle of the night, he wore sunglasses. A long, thin cut above his eyebrow was held together with several Steri-Strips. Another near the bridge of his nose had begun to swell. An angry red mark blossomed on his cheek, and there were hints that his eye would soon be black and blue.
“If I wanted you here, I would’ve called you. You shouldn’t be here.” He scowled at Tommy as if he were the reason behind all of them being there.
Kate slipped off the sergeant’s jacket. “Neither should you.” She tapped on the thick glass to get the desk officer’s attention, then waited by the inner door until she came around to retrieve the jacket.
Billy watched as she walked back, his mouth curling into that trademark smile, the one that still caused her to melt like a teenager.
Not this time. This time, she was pissed.
“Well, I see you came dressed to impress.” His grin grew, and the cut on his bottom lip split open, blood welling in the spot. A memory flashed before her of a night long ago when she hadn’t been nearly as angry as she was now, yet she had punched him in the stomach.
