They’re from two different worlds. Can they make it work? CALLIOPE CREEK by DeAnn Smallwood

TODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK IS THE NEW RELEASE  – CALLIOPE CREEK by DeAnn Smallwood.

GET IT ON AMAZON  http://amzn.to/2eVTtlC

Trent is a loner, a man of few words. All he wants or needs in his life is his ranch: Calliope Ranch. That is, until Riley stumbles into his life. Riley, who owns Calliope Falls. Riley, a city slicker who’s been left the Circle S by a father she thought dead. Riley, who needs a lesson to even make coffee. Riley, who is unloved, controlled and ridiculed by a demanding grandfather and a selfish mother. Riley defies them by moving to Meeker, Colorado, and fighting to show she can make it on a working ranch, her ranch.

Resenting her at first, Trent comes to realize there’s a void in his life and darned if Riley doesn’t fill that void. He wants her beside him, loving and living in the beautiful Colorado Mountains. Riley’s unexpected injury only strengthens Trent’s determination to give her all his love.

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 lived for years in Wyoming and Montana.  I draw from these three beautiful states for most of my books. My Western Historical Romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie,  Wyoming Heather,  One Shingle To Hang, Montana Man, and Montana Rose.  Tears In The Wind and Calliope Creek are contemporary westerns. Kade is also a contemporary  western and the first book in The Wyoming Brother’s series. I am currently working on the second book in this series: Declan. I branched out 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 is, Death Is A Habit. I will be working on the third book, Death Walks C Dock.  I truly 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 IT’S ABOUT:
When the recently incarcerated Hope Jackson knocks on Kade McKune’s door, with three boxes of Girl Scout cookies in her hands, he has no clue his bitter, distrusting rancher’s world is about to be turned upside down.

Lied to and taken to the cleaners by a beautiful blonde, Kade has learned a hard lesson and slams the door to any possibility of a woman in his life. Aren’t they all liars? And Hope, with her lie of omission about her background, unknowingly fits that description.

Kade isn’t about to give her a chance to win his love and to convince him of her innocence. His beloved Double K ranch is doing just fine with the help of his seventy-eight-year-old Gran—the only woman he can trust. He sure doesn’t need Hope Jackson, a recently returned brother and baby girl, and three abused boys complicating things and resurrecting feelings long dead.

Get it on Amazon for only $2.99  http://goo.gl/0h0QOd

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Leanna turns her back on the fresh grave of her husband, Leon, and heads to her car, to leave Colorado in search of a new life. She has bittersweet memories of her married life, particularly those years she and Leon spent developing and working a small Colorado ranch. Once they were forced from their spread, by wealthy, powerful speculators, Leon lost all sense of promise, and became increasingly depressed as the months passed. Leanna is unable to bring Leon back to a belief in himself and the future.

Leanna carries the secret of her husband’s death while working steadily for a year in a small law firm in Wyoming. Was Leon’s death an accident? He’d driven the mountain road many times before and was always a cautious driver. Did she make a mistake in not letting him see her pain in losing their ranch. Was her desire to shield him from even more hurt wrong? And the biggest question of all, did he think he’d lost her, too? These thoughts torture Leanna. She is content with her new life, but it is also clear she has a cold reserve and that she keeps her distance from loving anyone again.

Then Matt Forrister enters the law office where Leanna is a para-legal. He is everything Leanna has come to fear and loathe. He is wealthy and good-looking and owns one of the biggest ranches in the area. He is also her bosses friend. She immediately despises this man, yet, at the same time, she feels an overwhelming attraction to him. She can’t help but put him in the same category as the wealthy and powerful speculators that forced her from her ranch. Matt is puzzled, angered, and mesmerized by Leanna. He is drawn to her stunning beauty. He is attracted to her spirit. Thoughts of Leanna run like electricity through him.

Matt and Leanna’s boss conspire to bring Leanna to Matt’s ranch, the Lazy Seven, nestled in the Big Horn Mountains outside of Sheridan, Wyoming. In spite of her conflicting emotions, Leanna is swept into the beauty of everything. She beholds the vision of the dream she and Leon shared so hopelessly. The beautiful horses, the ranch, the man. Still, Leanna holds back frightened by the prospect of falling for a man who seems to mirror everything she had come to hate. The volatile mix of restraint and passion guides both Matt and Leanna through the chapters that follow. Leanna comes to appreciate and trust the hardworking rancher, the passionate and caring man, who has never known the true love of a woman. Matt loves Leanna deeply.

Leanna returns to Colorado and once again faces the heartbreak and rush of memories. She faces Leon’s grave and seeks his understanding and forgiveness. She returns to “Sheridan and Matt, exhausted from grief and rekindled memory, but beginning to heal. Leanna faces Matt, opens her heart and tells him her reason for her deep sense of shame and fear.They face one another, open and unafraid, clear about their desires and love.

It’s Always True Love: WILDE IN LOVE by Eloisa James #romance

 

Lord Alaric was enthralling in much the same way that tigers in the Royal Menagerie were. She liked to observe them, but wouldn’t dream of taking one home.

One of Cosmopolitan’s Best Books of 2017!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks. Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.

Willa presents the façade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.

Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle.

But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy. . . .

The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm—and introduces a large, eccentric family. Readers will love the Wildes of Lindow Castle!

STELLAR REVIEWS:

Top Pick from RT BookReviews

“Smart is the new sexy.” –Booklist, starred review

“The romance between them builds gradually and realistically, and intensifies through their exchanges of witty repartee and sensual innuendo.” ~ Publishers Weekly

ABOUT ELOISA: A reviewer from USA Today wrote that she “found herself devouring [Eloisa’s] book like a dieter with a Hershey bar”; People Magazine raved that “romance writing does not get much better than this.” Eloisa wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got a couple more degrees and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. Over twenty best-sellers later, she teaches Shakespeare in the English Department at Fordham University in New York City. She’s also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
