Cheryl Holt's Blog

Merry Christmas everyone! And Happy Holidays. As this busy, crazy time approaches, I wanted to give everyone a fun Christmas gift. I'm frequently asked if I have ever had any of my books recorded as audio books, but so far, I haven't had any of them recorded. But recently, I had a chance to have a sample recorded from my "Baby Caleb" novel, ONLY YOU. The terrific voice artist, Rachel Read, has given a great reading of the Prologue of the novel, and her crisp British accent is a wonderful, relaxing balm that sets the entire mood for the story.

I hope all of you will take a few minutes to enjoy this audio recording from ONLY YOU.

Hello Friends!
In less than six weeks, the first book in the LORD TRENT trilogy, LOVE’S PROMISE will be released on MAY 1st. Since one of the perks of self-publishing is having the ability to control your own release dates, readers will not have to wait six months to a year to read the entire trilogy. Book two, LOVE’S PRICE will be released in JUNE with the final book, LOVE’S PERIL to follow in JULY.

To celebrate the release of LOVE’s PROMISE I will be giving away 10 Autographed copies of the book to 10 lucky winners! All you have to do to enter is to send an email addressed to and put the word “CONTEST” in the subject line. Be sure to add your name and mailing address inside the e-mail.

Good luck!

Starting on April 20th, readers will be given a bonus daily sneak peak into the beginnings of Michael and Fanny’s relationship in LOVE’S PROMISE. In the book, the story begins after Michael and Fanny have exchanged a series of letters concerning their shared nephew’s custody. I will be posting these letters in the days leading up to the books release on MAY 1st.

Until then, you can also visit my website, and find a first chapter sneak preview of each book in the LORD TRENT trilogy by clicking on the “SNEAK PREVIEW” link at the top of each individual book’s page.

I really enjoyed writing this series and hope that you will love these characters as much as I do.

December 14, 2012

On December 21, I have a short story appearing at Not Another Romance Blog. They are running a xmas event, where they invited authors to write a story about xmas. We were given a specific topic. Mine was “first kiss on Xmas eve.” We could use old characters from prior books, write new ones, or whatever. The rules were pretty fluid. I wrote a story about Clarinda Dudley and Captain Aiden Bramwell. Clarinda is a recurring character in my “Sensual Destiny” series of PROMISE OF PLEASURE, TASTE OF TEMPTATION, and DREAMS OF DESIRE. She is a white witch and apothecary who travels with her charlatan brother and con artist, Phillip Dudley.

I paired her with Captain Bramwell. He’s a stuffy, no-nonsense sea captain, from a stuff no-nonsense aristocratic family. He made a cameo appearance in DREAMS OF DESIRE and will also appear in my 2013 book, LOVE’S PRICE. They are total opposites, which I always find to be a great match in a book, and I’ve always planned to write a book where they are the hero and heroine, but I haven’t had time yet. So this is a chance for my fans to read more about Clarinda and to see a glimpse of Aiden who’s coming in 2013.

If you go to the Not Another Romance Blog site, there’s a red box on the left hand side that says, “Historical Christmas” or something like that. It takes you to the list of authors and gives info about the various days. It’s running for most of the month of Dec, with a new story posted each day and a grand prize basket giveaway of books at the end.

Cheryl’s beautiful book, MARRY ME, is now available exclusively at Amazon. This is a collection of her three prior novels that were titled SEDUCE ME, KISS ME, and LOVE ME. The trilogy features the romantic foibles of the three Merriweather siblings, Lucas, Dustin, and Brittney. The original version of the three books was released only in e-format, but many of Cheryl’s fans don’t own e-readers. So she bundled the stories together under one beautiful cover and released it as a print book titled, MARRY ME. The three stories can be purchased as a print book or an e-book. The book is available through Amazon, but will not be available in bookstores. The e-version can be downloaded immediately, and the print version can be ordered, then received by mail in 2-3 days. Cheryl hopes everyone loves the Merriweathers!

Win a print copy of my new book, MARRY ME! Enter today. Drawing is October 15th!

In 2011, I published an e-book trilogy about the Merriweather siblings, Lucas, Dustin, and Brittney. The three titles were SEDUCE ME, KISS ME, and LOVE ME. But I heard from many readers that they don’t yet own an e-reader, so they weren’t able to read the three novels.

So I bundled the three books into one print book, titled MARRY ME. They are together, in their original format and under one beautiful cover. It will be available for sale at Amazon starting in October. In the meantime, I am running a contest to give away ten autographed copies of MARRY ME. You can enter to win by sending me an email with the word “contest” in the subject line. Drawing date is October 15, 2012. Good luck to everyone!
