***Last day to enter to win (1) copy of Rose Ross Zediker’s Dakota Love
See contest rules below***
One of the great pleasures of being an author has been establishing close friendships with other authors, people who really *get* you. It’s a great joy when I get a front row seat to those friends as they birth new books, and I love cheering for them.
So, I’m going to give shameless shout-outs for my friends and their book babies–I know you’ll recognize a few of them …
On the top of that list is our very own Rose Ross Zediker who we’ve been celebrating for the past couple of weeks. My copy of her new release, Dakota Love, is in the mail, and I’m waiting patiently … well, maybe not so patiently.
Modern South Dakota individuals use quilting to bring them joy and comfort, but suddenly quilting is leading them to romances they didn’t even know they wanted. Caroline and Rodney have each been loaded with many worries, but a tattered quilt could bring them together to share their burdens. Sarah and Mark embrace their independence until a quilting class throws them together and reveals their need for companionship. Lil is outgoing where Walt is private, but as they use quilting for physical therapy, an old secret could be revealed that will expose just how different they really are.
And here’s another name you’ll recognize: Shannon Taylor Vannatter! Yes, Shannon has another book out: Rodeo Family. It’s book #7 in her Texas Rodeo series. And I know she hasn’t exhausted her rodeo ideas quite yet, so you’ll be seeing more soon.
TORI EATON IS READY TO START OVER
She’s beginning a new chapter in Aubrey, Texas, away from her abusive ex-boyfriend. As she picks up the pieces of her broken life, Tori’s surprised at the helping hand the church’s new song director, Brant McConnell, offers her, and at the warm emotions he inspires.
Brant is drawn to Tori. And as their friendship grows, so do his feelings for her. But Tori is still hounded by her past, and the walls she’s built around her heart are high. Can he convince the wounded beauty that he’s exactly the kind of man she needs—and deserves?
Back in 2006, I had the great pleasure of meeting Don and Stephanie Prichard. I’m thrilled to tell everyone that their debut novel, Stranded, released in October 2014, and it continuously remains in the Top 100 rankings on Amazon in three different categories. Woo hoo, Don and Steph!!!
First they had to survive the island … then each other … then their rescuer.
All Marine Corps reservist Jake Chalmers wants is to give his dying wife a last, romantic cruise to the Philippines. Unable to save her in a mass murder aboard ship, he washes ashore a jungle island, where he discovers three other survivors. Heartbroken that he failed to save his wife, he is determined not to fail these helpless castaways.
Federal prosecutor Eve Eriksson rescues a young girl and her elderly great-aunt from the same ship. They badly need Jake’s survival skills, but why is he so maddeningly careful? She needs to hurry home to nail a significant career trial. And, please, before Jake learns her secret that she’s responsible for his wife’s death.
Then last, but never least, is Michelle Griep’s brand new bundle, Brentwood’s Ward. Michelle’s hero, Nicholas Brentwood, even sat for an interview on my blog this week >go here<. That man is a character! In more ways than one.
Place an unpolished lawman named Nicholas Brentwood as guardian over a spoiled, pompous beauty named Emily Payne and what do you get? More trouble than Brentwood bargains for. She is determined to find a husband this season. He just wants the large fee her father will pay him to help his ailing sister. After a series of dire mishaps, both their desires are thwarted, but each discovers that no matter what, God is in charge.
