SYNOPSIS:
Callie Collins, a proud woman in the late 1800’s, is a liar and a darned good one, a master of the dubious art. She is also a dreamer. Her greatest hope is to reach a new life in South Pass City, Wyoming, where she can open a bakery and live an independent life. To be successful, she will need her greatest deception to date, a mythical fiancé who waits at the end of the line. As a woman alone, she has to prove to Seth McCallister, the wagon master, that she has the wherewithal and the stamina to survive months of drought, dust, hardships, and even the risk of death.

Seth McCallister is mystified by the audacity and determination of Callie Collins. His initial distrust and concern for Callie, a woman traveling alone, begins first as admiration, then friendship, then love, a love that he is forced to hold at bay. What he doesn’t realize is that there is no fiancé. To make matters worse, Callie develops feelings for Seth McCallister, too. Yet she feels certain that once he realizes her deception, he’ll turn away, ashamed of his love and trust in her.

REVIEWS: (AMAZON KINDLE)

Extremely well written. I found myself in the west, riding along on the wagon train with Callie struggling right along with her. Experiencing her every emotion, forging friendships,and falling in love I recommend this book to anyone with an adventurous spirit.

UNCONQUERABLE CALLIE is an enjoyable and entertaining love story. DeAnn Smallwood exhibits her talent for words with her tale of love, hardship, relationships, and determination. She does an excellent job of crafting a romance with the historical backdrop of a wagon train. Her depiction of the adventurous spirit of settlers, as well as the dangers and hardships they endured on their journey for a better life, was fascinating and excellent.

The heroine, Callie, a courageous woman determined to forge a life for herself, embarks on a treacherous excursion through Indian country, despite the obstacles or the dangers she must face. Along the way, her courage and giving nature wins the hearts of her fellow travelers, including the wagon master.

UNCONQUERABLE CALLIE is a sweet romance that will draw you in from the beginning to the end. It is resplendent with history, well-drawn characters, and vivid descriptions. The plot flows unfettered and solid with an engaging story line. This novel is for anyone who loves romance and history without sexual complications. A must read.

Four years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He will have his vengeance . . .

MontanaMan_600Four years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. His entire being demands justice, but can his heart make room for love?

FRIDAY’S FANTASTIC FIND is the historical western romance MONTANA MAN by DeANN SMALLWOOD

GET IT ON AMAZON: http://amazon/DeAnnSmallwood

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Ben rose from the river, and like a dog, shook the water from his eyes. This was his third bath since he’d left Yuma Territorial Prison, and still the stench lived in his nostrils. Immersing his pain-wracked body, he reveled in the clear, cold water of the lazy moving Colorado.

Four years. Four years chained to stone floors and walls in a dark, crowded cell where daytime temperatures rose past 110 degrees. The prison, more aptly called ‘Hell Hole’, lived up to its name. He’d gone in a boy—he’d come out a man. Four years paying for a crime he didn’t commit.

Wisteria pulled on the wagon reins, her heart racing. On the rocky bank, lying on one, outstretched arm, fingers trailing in the river, was the body of a man. She jumped down from the wagon and with trepidation tried to move him, begging him to assist her.
“Can’t,” he muttered.

“Mister, I don’t know who you are, but ‘can’t’ isn’t working. Let me tell you a couple cant’s-I can’t lift you and I can’t leave you here to die.”

DeANN SMALLWOOD AUTHOR BIO:
I live in Colorado with my husband and my two Yorkie kid dogs: Stormy, four pounds, and Eli, six pounds. I’m a native of Colorado, but I’ve lived several years in Wyoming and Montana. I draw from these beautiful states for most of my books. My Western Historical Romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie, One Shingle To Hang, and Wyoming Heather and One Shingle To Hang. Tears In The Wind is a contemporary romance. Then I changed genres from my beloved romances and wrote, under the pen name of D. M. Woods, my first suspense/thriller: Death Crosses The Finish Line. The second book in this ‘death’ series, Death Is A Habit, came out January 8, 2014. I am currently working on the third book in the ‘death’ series, Death Walks C Dock. I am also working on another Western Historical Romance, Montana Man. It features the characters readers came to know and love in Montana Star. Truly, I mean it when I say my greatest pleasure next to writing is having my books read and enjoyed. There are many more stories just waiting to be written

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
4 and 5 Star Reviews on Amazon: Read them here. http://amazon/DeAnnSmallwood
Awesome Story
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Smallwood’s realistic and fast-paced novel. There was not a single place where the story bogged down, and I never had any doubt about the time and place in which the story occurred. This fictional tale, where the heroine rescues a hero just released from prison and near death, provides a pleasing change from the boy meets girl, boy gets girl, they live happily ever after. Montana Man is not something the reader feels was written to meet word requirements or to fill a mandated outline. The heroine, Wisteria, (love the name) makes sacrifices that might cause her to forfeit the love she feels for Ben (the hero), and although he’s embroiled in memories from a painful four years in prison and a vendetta still to be met, she becomes his reason for living. The author certainly knows how to illicit emotions and put the reader into the character’s shoes. Not only does Ben see the score evened and find the peace he seeks, there is much more in his future he didn’t see coming. I read the book in one sitting, it was that good. Bravo DeAnn Smallwood. You write a great story. mizging01

Solving a mystery can be fun by Christina Holt

Sherlock-Small-Text-Transparent-12-peopleChristina Holt has written two YA paranormal novels Second Chance and Vanished  for Lachesis Publishing – both books have an element of mystery to them. It’s understandable since she is an avid fan of mystery novels. Well, who doesn’t love a good whodunnit? But Christina has gone one step further in her quest to solve a good mystery . . .

One of my personal favorite genres to read would be mystery and suspense books. Especially when the story has unexpected turns and keeps you guessing up until the very end. I think most people feel a sense of personal victory when they are able to solve the ending (or figure out the bad guy), before it is actually revealed in the book.

THE LIBRARY (SHERLOCK’S STUDY) from one of the Escape Room Games thegreatescaperoom.com

THE LIBRARY (SHERLOCK’S STUDY) from one of the Escape Room Games thegreatescaperoom.com

I think that is why I got so excited when my husband first introduced me to The Great Escape Room game. (If you haven’t heard of this, you should look it up online to see if there is one near you!). There are several locations in various cities, and each one has different rooms all with unique themes. The staff locks you into a room with a group of friends and you have one hour to solve a series of puzzles in order to unlock the room. They let groups of seven people in at a time, and you definitely want different personalities in your group. The time I went, it worked out  really well, because we had different types of people, some that were very quiet but smart, some that were always looking for all the details everywhere, some that were leaders, some just following directions.

The room we did was called The Heist, and it was all about stolen paintings, and we had to find our way through 3 different rooms in order to find the stolen art work and find where the real art was hidden. If you get stumped, they give you clues along the way. It was so much fun. :)

The next one we are doing is called The Mayflower, and it’s about a serial killer who has been nicknamed The Mayflower because of the ship in a bottle token he leaves by his victims. The discription says that the killer messed up and left evidence which leads to his apartment, which is where the game starts.

It really feels like walking through a mystery novel and you and the people in the room are the characters in the book.

REVIEWS:

A rollicking adventure of romance and True Grit… This is an historical Western romance in a style that reminds me of Hemingway. Although the descriptions are colorful and accurate, there are no wasted words here as the characters are developed through dialogue and action. The old West comes to life! Highly recommended. Goodreads

Good old-fashioned historic western romance with a kick!
Alison Bruce does an excellent job on setting the scenes and customs of the old west. History, characterizations, and the long ride of the heroes of the story are convincing for the time. There is lots of action and gun-play as they work together on a case in Fortuna. … If you’re looking for a dish of the old west with a dash of romance and humor minus the raunch dressing, this book is for you.
