For those of you brand new to my DDScottville books, this is the series that started it all for me, my debut releases (back in 2010). I still can't believe it's been almost five years since my first book hit cyber shelves around the world!

Here's the scoop on The Bootscootin' Books - BOOTSCOOTIN' BLAHNIKS, STOMPIN' ON STETSONS and BUCKLES ME BABY:

BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS has been a #1 Free Title on all major ebook platforms, it’s been downloaded over 600,000 times and was a Top 10 Mother’s Day Pick. Together with STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS and BUCKLES ME BABY, this series has maintained an average 4-Star-Rating over the course of 2,000+ reviews and made multiple international bestseller lists.

BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS

International Bestselling Author D. D. Scott two-steps into your heart with book one of her chart-topping debut series. A #1 Free Title on all of the major ebook etailers, it’s been downloaded over 600,000 times and was a Top 10 Mother’s Day Pick.

Think Sex and the City meets Urban Cowboy.

It’s Chick Lit Gone Country.

Manhattan apparel designer Roxy Rae Vaughn, who's also a still-in-the-closet, country line dancing queen, is tired of being a Fifth Avenue up-and-comer. Against her parent’s wishes and without their financial backing, she moves to Nashville, Tennessee and opens a boutique in a local tractor supply store, the only retail space she can afford. Short on cash and luck, she rear-ends a pick-up truck belonging to a tomato-growin', bootscootin' cowboy who is anything but the perfect fit for her career plans, although he is her ideal dance partner. Can Roxy accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and her cowboy's lead?

Tomato farmer by day and bootscootin' instructor by night Zayne McDonald doesn't give a damn about winning Nashville's heirloom tomato contest, even though his late father did. Zayne wants to honor his father, but what he really wants is to line dance his way into a winner's spotlight. When he and Roxy are discovered by a huge dance show producer, Zayne learns it's partnering with Roxy that's his winning hybrid mix. That is, if he can keep her and the tomato contest away from Beefsteak Jack Baudlin, the toughest tomato man in CMT country.


STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS

International Bestselling Author D. D. Scott heats up your heart and your kitchen with book two of her chart-topping debut series The Bootscootin’ Books. Think Hell’s Kitchen mixed with Meet the Fockers. It’s cupcakes and BBQ!

Manhattan-raised, culinary-schooled pastry chef Jules Lichtenstien wants to make her new Nashville, Tennessee bakery a success. Catering the wedding of a Music City socialite and her country music, chart-topping beau could do just that. But learning the Wedding Planner from Hell is her ex has Jules’ nerves frosted. Having never found the sweet comfort in a man that she gets from her sugary confections, she vows to never again cook up anything but food in her kitchen.

Meat n’ Three diner heir and produce man Cody Weiss is fantastic with food but lousy with relationships. Or so says his ex-fiancĂ© whose wedding he’s unwittingly agreed to help his friend Jules cater. Cody wants to help Jules, but what he really wants is to succeed in their relationship where he’s failed in the past.

With both of their exes stirring the pots, can Jules and Cody pull off the wedding without making minced meat of their relationship? And when a hat causes heat to simmer between them, will they be able to survive both in and out of the kitchen?

Love is a lot like cooking — delicious with the right ingredients.


BUCKLES ME BABY

International Bestselling Author D. D. Scott treats you to double the fun and more than double the trouble in book three of her bestselling series The Bootscootin’ Books. Think paparazzi-hell and Ponzi-scheme fall-out meet home-shopping and Babies “R” Us.

Manhattan-raised, marketing and promotion impresario Audrey Holtz has taken her friend’s belt buckles from Music City boutique favorites to home shopping channel wait-list-only items. But she’s traded in her high-power stilettos for Sketchers ‘cause her feet are swollen and killing her. Pregnancy is a bitch, especially when you’ve assumed a false identity to dodge paparazzi on account of your Ponzi-scheming parents.

Nashville, Tennessee homebuilder Damian Baker is screwed and not in the construction sense of the word. Who would have thought the first room he’d be designing and building for his dream home would be a nursery...for his and Audrey’s twins? But he’s hell-bent on providing well for and protecting the woman he loves plus the children he can’t wait to meet.

Audrey and Damian may not be able to hide from the camera lenses, the baby blues, and belt buckle mania, but they can hide behind their love. But is their love strong enough to deflect the blinding glare of the spotlight?


I'm beyond thrilled that I can now share these books with you via Kindle Unlimited (KU). And for those of you who aren't sure what that is, it's Amazon's new ebook subscription service, in which, for around $10.00/month, you can borrow over 700,000 books for FREE, keeping up to 10 at a time on your Kindle(s) or Amazon Fire Tablet(s). Pretty cool, right?! I use KU myself and am finding a bunch of terrific authors that are brand new to me.

With the addition of my Bootscootin' Books, I now have 6 books (all Contemporary Romances) available in Kindle Unlimited: THE KEYS' PRINCE (The Royal Heirs Book 1), A ROYAL CHRISTMAS RESCUE (The Royal Heirs Book 2), HOLLYWOOD HOLIDAYS (Home for The Holidays Book 1), BOOTSCOOTIN' BLAHNIKS (The Bootscootin' Books #1), STOMPIN' ON STETSONS (The Bootscootin' Books #2) and BUCKLES ME BABY (The Bootscootin' Books #3).

Happy New Year and Happy Reading!!! --- DD

Holiday Greetings and Lots of Love from DDScottville!!!

'Tis the season for Holiday Greetings and Lots of Love, and I've got tons of both for all of you in DDScottville!!!

Thanks to each and every one of you, 2014 has been an amazing year!



This year, I published my 32nd book, and I'm hard at work on #33 (Kristianico's Crown Prince, The Royal Heirs Book 3) which will release for Valentine's Day 2015. I've now sold over 300,000 books and hit bestseller lists around the world. And over 600,000 copies of the book that started it all for me back in 2010 - Bootscootin' Blahniks (The Bootscootin' Books #1), which is still Free on all ebook platforms - have been downloaded. In addition, for the first time, several of my books are now available in print format, with many more to come in print throughout 2015.

It's because of every single one of you, your love and support and your enthusiasm that I've been able to achieve my success. Above all, this holiday season, I want you to know how very grateful I am.

This year has been one of many changes for me and my wonderful DH (Darling Husband) and our Boys (Buckley and Siggy)...

We now call southern Florida home and love it here, as do The Boys.






We've become Vegetarians (Almost Vegans), and I'm really enjoying sharing recipes with all of you.

Vegetarian/Vegan Recipes, Remedies and Wisdom

I'm also a new Yogini and enjoy a wonderful Meditation Practice. And, for the first time, in over 30 years, I'm back in a dance studio, taking three classes a week and loving every minute of it. Thank you's all around to my amazing teacher Kelly Atkins!!! I adore you!!!

In DDScottville, it's always been about love, peace and light, with a bunch of humor tossed into the mix, and I can't wait to share with you some of the new avenues I'll be expanding into in 2015 with these same themes at the core. Here's a hint: think children's books and a new community based on this amazing piece by one of the most talented artists I've come across - Heather Stillufsen of Rose Hill Designs.



From my home to yours, Let Love Glow and Be a Beacon of the Light, Love and Peace of The Season!



Hugs and Love --- DD

D. D. Scott's Favorite Vegetarian and/or Vegan Recipes: Chunky Minestrone with Rosemary

Wavin' atchya, DDScottville Peeps!

I don't know about you, but I'm a huge fan of soup all year round, especially at this time of year. I make at least one and many times two varieties a week. I just love a nice warm bowl of soup for lunch.

Here's one of my fave new recipes for a delicious minestrone...



Ingredients:

2 T Olive Oil

1 small Red or Yellow Onion, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 sage leaves, chopped

32 oz low-sodium vegetable broth

1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes

1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/2 lb green beans, fresh or frozen, cut into 1-inch chunks

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

1/2 lb frozen collard greens

1/2 cup grated Parmesan


Directions:

In a large, heavy stockpot over medium heat, heat oil. Cook onion, carrots, celery, garlic and sage, stirring occasionally until vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes, kidney beans, chick peas, green beans, rosemary and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and simmer until kidney beans are warmed through and green beans begin to soften, 10 minutes. Add collards; cover and cook until warmed through. Serve topped with Parmesan. ***Note: Leave the Parmesan off, and you've made it vegan! :)


Bon Appetit! --- DD
