Barbara_IndenturedHeart72dpi750x1200I am proud to announce the reissue of INDENTURED HEART, my American Colonial Romance. Now available in Kindle and Nook download formats. www.BarbaraRaffin.com

She was a woman in a man’s business, shipbuilding, and someone didn’t want her to succeed.

Crippled in the carriage crash that killed her husband and betrayed by her solicitor and doctor, Megan McCall will trust no man to help her right the wrongs done to her.

But, the one person who can help her walk again is her newly acquired indentured servant…a convicted pirate…a man. Worse, Royce Devlin’s every touch reminds Megan of the passion she believes she will never know.

I made 2nd round of Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest

No Place Like Home, renamed Finding Home, has made the second round of judging in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Next step is the quarter finals.

The reason I changed the cover and title on this book is to bring it in line with the overall look of the St. John Sibling Series.

No Place Like Home can be found in print with its old cover and title at Amazon.com

Finding Home is in digital format at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.




I decided it was time to give my St. John Sibling Series a cohesive cover look. No Place Like Home even got a new title, FINDING HOME, to give continuity to all the titles. Admittedly it was hard giving up the title No Place Like Home and the adorable cover that came with it. But I am so loving the new look for the St. John Sibling Series, thanks to Covers by Rogenna. http://sweettoheat.blogspot.com/p/pricing.html


Hi All–I’m being spotlighted by the Jewels of the Quill this month. http://www.angelfire.com/stars4/kswiesner/jewelsofthequill2.html#spotlight

Want to know what inspired the first two stories in my first series, The St. John Sibling Series? What Shakespeare story inspired Taming Tess? Gee, that doesn’t seem hard to figure out. But, what favorite eatery of mine prompted me to write No Place Like Home? Who are the St. John Siblings and what makes their stories worthy of reading? For the answers to these questions and many more, check out the interview I gave the Jewels of the Quill. http://www.angelfire.com/stars4/kswiesner/jewelsofthequill2.html#spotlight


But here’s a sneak peek. “No Place Like Home’s” Dixie Rae (St. John) Carrington hasn’t let widowhood, the loss of her restaurant, and a custody battle for her son turn her outlook on life sour, thanks in good part to the support of her loving family. This makes her the perfect mate for Sam Ryan, a man who’s been running from conflict all his life, and for good reason. Abandoned by his father, neglected by his mother, and raised by an uncle he couldn’t please, he’s never known the sweet support of a real family. What Dixie, her preschool son, and extended family will teach Sam is the family he covets doesn’t have to be related by blood—that he hasn’t been running away all his life but, rather, searching for the right family for him.


No Place Like Home will be available later this month as a Kindle download. In the meantime, please check out Book 1 in the St. John Sibling Series, Taming Tess.  Taming Tess can be purchased from Amazon’s Kindle shop http://www.amazon.com/Taming-Tess-St-John-Sibling-ebook/dp/B00FDFTJ0E/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1383972031&sr=1-1&keywords=BARBARA+RAFFIN and Smashwords. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/372290
