Let the celebrations begin!

Hey peeps!

Welcome to the Fall Into Winter Romance Giveaway Hop! Big thanks go to AnnMarie Oakes for hosting.

This hop is to celebrate the release of Western Kisses Old West Christmas, a romance anthology featuring stories by Carre White and Kirsten Osbourne as well as a host of others. It just so happens I have a couple of western stories so this is a perfect fit!

Featured below is the first in The Diamond Series, ROUGH DIAMOND. I had such fun with Alice and Rupert and their shenanigans, and enjoyed creating the Diamond Saloon and her people. To research, I went on a cheeky trip to Sovereign Hill, an open air museum here in Australia, and that was just all manner of fun. If you’re ever in Ballarat, I highly recommend you check it out.

I hope you enjoy the hop and the glimpse at ROUGH DIAMOND below. There’s also a giveaway so don’t forget to scroll right to the end.

Rough Diamond by Cassandra Dean Western Escape Decadent Publishing


Owner of the Diamond Saloon and Theater, Alice Reynolds is astounded when a fancy Englishman offers to buy her saloon. She won’t be selling her saloon to anyone, let alone a man with a pretty, empty-headed grin…but then, she reckons that grin just might be a lie, and a man of intelligence and cunning resides beneath.

Rupert Llewellyn has another purpose for offering to buy the pretty widow’s saloon—the coal buried deep in land she owns. However, he never banked on her knowing eyes making him weak at the knees, or how his deception would burn upon his soul.

Each determined to outwit the other, they tantalize and tease until passion explodes. But can their desire bridge the lies told and trust broken?

8221933Cassandra grew up daydreaming, inventing fantastical worlds and marvelous adventures. Once she learned to read (First phrase – To the Beach. True story), she was never without a book, reading of other people’s fantastical worlds and marvelous adventures.

Fairy tales, Famous Fives, fantasies and fancies; horror stories, gumshoe detectives, science fiction; Cassandra read it all. Then she discovered Romance and a true passion was born.

So, once upon a time, after making a slight detour into the world of finance, Cassandra tried her hand at writing. After a brief foray into horror, she couldn’t discount her true passion. She started to write Romance and fell head over heels.

The love affair exists to this very day.

Cassandra lives in Adelaide, South Australia.
