Linda Nightingale

_MG_0004a (2)Hello, I’m Linda Nightingale. Welcome to my page. I retired last February  from a career as a Legal Assistant to write full-time, then accepted a position as Content Strategist with an advertising agency to write copy. I love my job! I work in my robe and slippers.

Something of a gypsy (actually nothing quite so romantic!), I was born in South Carolina, I’ve lived in England, Canada, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta and Houston.  I’ve seen a lot of this country from the windshield of a truck pulling a horse trailer. For many happy years, I bred, trained and showed the magnificent Andalusian horses. My stallion Alegre performing a rear at the Florida Renaissance Festival.

RearI have four novels published by Double Dragon Publishing, a fifth by The Wild Rose Press, and the sixth now in copy edits with The Wild Rose Press.  I’ve won several writing awards, including the Georgia Romance Writers Magnolia Award.

I have two wonderful sons, both of whom I adore.  I enjoy events with my car club, symphony, theater, reading and hosting formal dinner parties. Among my favorite things are my snazzy black convertible and my parlor grand piano.

Web site and Blog – I host other interesting authors and guests on my blog.  Please visit!

Drum roll! Let me tell you about my books!

LoveForSale_w9468_medThe dynamic cover was created by cover artist Debbie Taylor (Thanks Debbie!)


March Morgan still believes in true love, but her faith in finding her soul mate is slowly vanishing.She’s been married but never in love. So, it is a miracle to find that fantasy exists on the last page of a glossy women’s journal. Mayfair Electronics, Ltd., in black and white, offers Love for Sale. The London firm has engineered sentient androids indistinguishable from humans. She flies to England and meets the man she has been searching for her entire life. Christian requires no programming to love March at first sight. He’s handsome, cultured…absolutely perfect…and a little different from the other androids. He has an unexpected independent streak. March signs on the dotted line, buying her dream man. They return to Houston, but soon her past and his future threaten their Happily Ever After—indeed their lives.

Gemini Rising was my first novel, and I never thought it would be published because of the GeminiRising3controversial subject matter.  Tag Line: “One man, one woman…one heart, one soul..only together can they be complete.”

All of my books are available in eBook and print on Amazon or at the publisher’s web site Double Dragon Publishing.

Love For Sale will be available from The Wild Rose Press.



sinnersopera-510 (4)The book of my heart is Sinners’ Opera. Tag Line: Morgan D’Arcy is an English nobleman, a world-renowned classical pianist…and a vampire. He has everything except what he most desires…Isabeau.

My son created this dynamic cover!

Sinners’ Obsession is a sequel to Sinners’ Opera and Cardinal Desires is the Maggie Winner.




What Reviewers have said of my work:

“Poetic and beautiful…sophisticated…rich, tasteful air of sensuality… unique take on the too familiar vampire novel…welcome change, adding uncharted territory to a popular genre in need of new ideas.  Characters are brilliantly penned, every detail…painted like a beautiful picture…addictive, exciting and grips you from the very first page. Morgan and Isabeau…could be placed in the same category as some of the most famous couples in romance history – Romeo and his Juliet, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy – and their romance plays out like one of Beethoven’s famous love letters.” … Cocktails and Books

If you’ve read this far, you might be interested in the book video for Sinners’ Opera and Sinners’ Obsession:

CarnalDesire-510 (5)How can Katy McCaully resist Sterling Fox? At fifteen, she fell in love with a man in a painting, and he looks exactly like that Novgorodian knight. Even though he’s got the keys to her chemistry set, she mustn’t succumb to his charms. She’s a forensic psychiatrist working with Scotland Yard. He’s a high-profile journalist who invades the underworld for a story or broadcasts live at the scene of the world’s worst tragedies. Police and media do not mix. Katy has no idea they are both trying to capture the same serial killer. Modern London is unaware that the Vampire Slayer has also killed four vampires. Katy doesn’t know the whole truth until it’s too late—after she’s fallen in love with Sterling.

The book in copy edits is Gambler’s Choice, which is a class in hunter/jumper horse shows, so of course is about the equestrian set.  GamblersChoice_w9208_750Book Video:

    Found you online and love the relationship you had with your stallion. I’ve raised four generations of horses, to date. What an amazing relationship they provide for us! I think you’ll enjoy my site, plus, please listen to the Celtic harp music of my daughter, EllaHarp — she just put up her first music video and album to be released soon :)) Dawn

    I never have time to read anymore but one of these days I am going to figure out how to get them on my tablet and go to bed with one of your books. Miss you wish I could see you in person.
