WINTER’S KNIGHT is out tonight ❤️

A magical love story is waiting for you…

In an enchanted land of lady knights and deep magic, there lives a woman who does not want to be queen. Her name is Winter, and her quiet life is upended when her sister abdicates the throne. The throne cannot remain empty. Winter must be queen. But Winter would give anything not to be.

Since Winter’s sister fled in a hurry, she left her guardian knight behind. Her name is Alia, and her life is about to be upended, too, because when she and Winter meet for the first time, sparks fly and catch fire, and Winter’s heart begins to melt.

A royal assasination might be on the horizon, though Winter never wanted the throne in the first place. And now she’s falling in love with her sister’s protector. In a magical, snowy land full of strong women, anything is possible. Including true love.

Bridget Essex’s beloved Knight Legends series gets a new chapter in this, the first romance of the Seasons Quartet.

WINTER’S KNIGHT is Coming Soon

This year has–to put it succinctly–fucking sucked.

So I wanted to write a book that was pure happy magic to take my mind off of it.

And I wanted to give you a story that would feel like a hug for a while.

Because we could all fucking use that.

And I could think of nothing better than this one.   

WINTER’S KNIGHT is coming soon.

JUST RELEASED: JOANIE is out now and available to read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

They say you should never meet your heroes…so you should *definitely* not have a one-night stand with one…

But Kristen Perry never got that memo. She’s been madly in love with legendary rocker Joanie for as long as she can remember. Joanie is one of the living legends of rock music, a pioneer for women in the music industry for decades and a lesbian icon. Her music gave Kristen the strength to keep going…so when Joanie announces dates for her farewell tour, of course Kristen’s going to be there.

And when Kristen finds her way backstage, it just must be her lucky night. For somehow, impossibly, she meets Joanie herself…

What follows next is a wild, romantic night of adventure, rescue, passion and a love story that, if both women can find the courage to open their hearts, could change their lives forever…

$7.99 or available to read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

I’ve created a pen name for my contemporary romance, Lucy Heart. Going forward, all paranormal and fantasy will continue to be under Essex, but any new contemporary work I publish will be under Heart. ♥

JUST RELEASED: WILD HEARTS is out now and available to read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

Ella Rivers hasn’t been okay since the day her mother died.

One wintry night, lost in grief, Ella goes for a long, cold walk. It’s three o’clock in the morning, and she decides to duck into a gas station to get warm, and perhaps buy a cup of tea. But when the power cuts out, Ella’s life is changed forever.

Because, that night, she should have died. And she would have, were it not for the mysterious, white-haired woman who saves her life: Silver.

Silver is more intriguing—and attractive—than any woman Ella’s ever known. She insists that she knew Ella’s mother, and that she can help Ella find out “who she really is.” But, while Ella is deeply attracted to Silver, how can she possibly believe what Silver says?

After all, there’s no such thing as werewolves.

Ella’s life is in danger, and the woman who holds the key to her survival is as mysterious as she is intense. Ella can’t predict what’s going to happen next… All she knows is that this gorgeous, wild woman might just change her destiny…

Not a Kindle reader? Bridget has a big surprise for you! ALL of her books are now available for other eReaders!

To my fans and friends who don’t use Kindle, I have a pretty exciting announcement! ♥ I’ve been working VERY HARD on this project, and as of early this morning, it’s completed!

Almost ALL of my books are now on Smashwords, and will be distributed globally to Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, Overdrive (so please request my books at your library!) and lots of other places!

(Also, by the way, seeing all of my books in one very nice, long page is just mind boggling. Have I really written so much?! My goodness!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ )

Very, very few of my books were available to these programs before (I think it was about three?), and now my THIRTY NOVELS will be distributed everywhere!

For my Kindle Unlimited readers: going forward, each new release of mine will be available for three months through Kindle Unlimited, and will then be removed from the program to be distributed everywhere. ♥

It was time for a change! I’m very, very excited about what 2020 holds for all my new releases–stay tuned for more magic! ♥ ♥ ♥

All of my wife Jenn (Natalie Vivien)’s books are now available on Smashwords, too!

Exciting News!

I have been working non-stop on my next novel. ♥ I am *very* excited to say that if I continue at this pace, my first book of 2020 will come out before the end of the month. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  Please make sure to sign up for our newsletter–you’ll be the first to know when it’s actually released! ♥

I am pretty excited about the new year and my fairly ridiculous list of releases that I have planned. ❤ (SO! MANY! BOOKS!) But I’m also excited about my new plans for my Patreon!

Patreon money goes to feed our kids, which is pretty damn exciting. ♥ When you sign up for my Patreon, you not only support us, you get sneak peeks of everything I’m working on, whole novels, aaaaaaaand…

It’s my hope to put out at least one short story each month that can only be read by patrons (until I compile them into a short story collection and release it when I have enough). ❤ Short stories are one of my favorite forms of writing, and I’ve written (literally) thousands, but have strayed away from it in recent years because for new releases, folks prefer novels. BUT, as a huge fan of the medium myself, I think short stories are bite sized pieces of deliciousness that are SO FUN to consume, something to tide you over in between my book releases. ♥

So! I want to write short stories that make you excited to read them. Delicious moments of escape to look forward to. ♥

My goal, as a writer, is to give you comfort, a safe space from the hard world where you get to be soft, vulnerable and happy. To give you hope. I’m going to tailor my stories to possess these potent qualities. ♥

My first story I want out in the new year is called “Drive.” It will ONLY be available on my Patreon for quite a long while. ♥

If you haven’t already, please consider supporting me on Patreon. ♥ As always, thank you so, so much for your love, kindness and support: you fill my heart. ♥

First Chapter of My Forthcoming Novel is Up on My Patreon!

I posted the first chapter of my forthcoming novel, A Light in the Dark, on my Patreon! ❤️

If you love my posts of our kids and enjoy my writing, please consider signing up to become a patron! ❤️ I use my Patreon funds every month to buy food for our kids, and it’s appreciated more than I can say. ❤️

I’m always trying to add extra perks to my Patreon, like an e-copy of Hot Blooded (still available on there, by the way!), behind the scenes looks and chapters far in advance of publication. ❤️ I’m hoping that my depression will lessen a bit with the spring, and I’ve got a lot of ideas for treats and fun Patrons-only treasures. I’m always excited about the possibilities!

Thank you so much for your support. ❤️

My new audiobook, MEMORY, is out now!

I am so, so, so thrilled to announce that the INCREDIBLE audiobook of Memory is out now!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Narrated by the incomparable TJ Richards, the story is brought to life in flawless perfection, thanks to her incredible talents. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I am over the moon with the production, and I know you will be, too. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Piper once believed she’d found her happily-ever-after in Estella.

Until Estella left.

Piper and Estella met when they were kids. Estella was rich and spoiled, Piper was poor and curious, and – in each other – the two girls found an unexpected friendship. Year after year went by as they grew up together, growing closer and closer as time passed, until Piper realized that she loved Estella more than anything in the universe.

The day Piper told Estella she loved her was the day Estella walked out the door, never to return again…

Or so Piper thought.

Years have passed, and they’re both grown women living opposite lives on opposite sides of the country. All they have between them are the memories of a young love that was so beautiful and profound that it changed their lives forever…

But a chance encounter pulls the two women together once more.

Does true love exist? Or are some scars too deep to ever heal?

Get Memory here!
