For Love or Money now available!


The seventh novella in the popular Legacy of the Celtic Brooch series is Karen Duvall's For Love or Money and it's now available from The Wild Rose Press!

Claire Ballard has spent her adolescent and adult life caring for her alcoholic mother and Down Syndrome sister, when a car accident takes both of them away from her. Having seen herself only as a caregiver all her life, she's suddenly slapped in the face with a new reality. Her estranged father is killed soon after, and he's left her a beautiful family heirloom as well as a lot of money. Claire sees this heirloom as a sign, a charm that brings her good luck, and she makes changes to herself to reflect that good fortune. The duckling becomes the swan, but she soon learns that change comes from within herself, from something that was always there to begin with, beginning in her childhood. It just took a "trigger" to bring it out.

A Scottish crime family named Coine claim the brooch really belongs to them and they'll do whatever it takes to get it back. Liam Coine has his own agenda, part of which is to claim Claire as his own. Getting the brooch would just be an added bonus. Their families' feud makes for a fiery connection between Liam and Claire, but their attraction to each other fuels the flame even more. Will the brooch be responsible for getting Claire killed by the same family of criminals who murdered her father? Or will it reunite her with her childhood crush, Liam the classroom bully?
