SYNOPSIS:

Jet-setter Santino Moretti died and left the Triple-M property, worth nearly $25 million, to his three neglected sons, Micah, Marek, and Matteo, each born of a different marriage, and each unknown by the others. Before any one of them can inherit, he must take turns living on the farm for three months, then they must return and all three live together for a final three months. Half-brothers, city boys, and complete strangers, they face the biggest challenge of their lives: to put aside their distrust and bitterness and live together like a kind and caring family. The fast shifting lifestyle of undercover law enforcement agent Marek Moretti demands quick reflexes, quick thinking, and quick decision making skills. Unfortunately he gets bested by a covert operation gone sour. His career of intrigue and excitement over, the lone maverick has nowhere to go to recuperate from his injuries when the hospital releases him. Except to Willow Creek and the Triple-M Farm. Maybe that’s what he wants. Some peace. Some quiet. Some time to brood as he heals. What he doesn’t want is working the “family” farm with his “brothers.” Or Arielle Lebreque, the nurse hired to travel with him and nurture him back to health. She’s bossy. She’s brash. She’s beautiful. And she’s driving him crazy. No matter how many times he fires her, she remains a permanent fixture in his life, set to heal his body. And his heart.

Unconquerable Callie by DeAnn Smallwood (American historical romance/pioneer romance)

UnconquerableCallie_850 (1)(8)Tuesday’s REVOLVING BOOK is the historical romance UNCONQUERABLE CALLIE by DeANN SMALLWOOD.

Sometimes a lie can lead to love.

Publisher: SoulMate Publishing Offered through Kindle Direct Amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/Unconquerable-Callie-ebook/dp/B00BLWBDF2/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1362083762&sr=8-10&keywords=deann+smallwood

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.

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. Goodreads

“Alison Bruce captures the Old West in a delightful, if improbable, mix of romance, cultures and characters with UNDER A TEXAS STAR” Goodreads – Areletta Dawdy (4 stars)

Cantrell’s characters came to life right before my eyes and involved me in their world instantly because they were so easy to relate to. But the main reason I enjoyed this book so much is because of the emotion throughout.

Priced right on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Blue-ebook/dp/B00A9SXYGK

Synopsis:

Meghan O’Reiley is the most mysterious and sought-after citizen in Pig Eye Gulch. Yet no one befriends or even fully trusts the beautiful young woman. They seek her out in times of trouble–to heal their sick children or soothe their own ailments–but she is otherwise regarded with superstition and unease. Since her grandmother died, Meghan has carried on, finding solace and peace in the cultivation of the wild herbs she uses to create her healing medicines.

When Conner Hendrickson needs help for his sweet baby daughter Bonnie, Meghan’s formerly solitary life is suddenly full of spark and zest. She’s wary of getting too close as she knows that a life with Conner cannot be hers. He comes from a life of privilege, having grown up in London’s high society. Conner is the owner of the Sapphire Yogo mine and employs most of the citizens of Pig Eye Gulch, and Meghan knows that his aspirations will take him far beyond her rough-hewn Montana mining town. But try as she might, Meghan’s love for both Conner and Bonnie deepens each day as she nears the precipice of losing them both.
