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.

A broken man. A brave woman. An unforgettable love. WYOMING HEATHER by DeAnn Smallwood #amreading #western #romance

Final Wyoming Heather 72 dpi - CopyToday’s Revolving Book is the historical romance WYOMING HEATHER by DeANN SMALLWOOD. GET IT ON AMAZON. http://amzn.to/1VaqhZr

ABOUT THE STORY:

He rode alone coming back after five years to an empty cabin, a run-down ranch, and a grave on a hill. A former Texas Ranger burnt out on life and afraid to love. Whip had spent five years hunting the man that took his wife’s life and left him to die.

Heather is a spirited, independent woman living alone on a ranch left to her by her parents. A woman doing a man’s work running a ranch that everyone said couldn’t be done, not in this untamed, vastly unsettled land, in the mid-1800’s. Not only was Heather doing it, but she was doing it well. The ranch was her life. It had everything she needed except water. But she’d managed to overcome even that. She stole it from a neighboring abandoned ranch watched over by a lonely cabin and a grave.

Heather’s life is devoted to her ranch and her love for animals. She is considered a healer, well known throughout the rough and untamed Wyoming country. She has a full life. Then why is it so empty?

Whip vowed he would take up his dream abandoned five years ago and make his beloved ranch profit and to put aside the sweet linger of all memories shared by him and his wife. The ranch would be a jealous mistress occupying his every thought and every minute. He had no time or desire for a woman much less a pair of runaways from The Orphan Train who stowed away on Whip’s wagon and onto the Powder River Ranch.

Whip and Heather meet in an explosive moment on the banks of the Powder River, reacting to one another like fire and wind. But, underlying the tangles over property rights, there’s a chemistry between the two. Both are lonely, both are drawn to one another, and both fight the attraction-Whip, because of memories he’s not ready to put to rest, and Heather, because of her stubborn resolve to succeed as a woman rancher.

But fate heeds no one or no thing. The criminal from Whip’s past reemerges in the present. Now, Heather is in danger and Whip stands, once again, on the cusp of loss. Fate shows a strong, willful woman, full of love and compassion, just what she’s been missing in her life. And it shows a calloused Texas Ranger that Heather and love does flourish on the Wyoming plains.

He can’t help but fall in love with her MONTANA ROSE by DeAnn Smallwood #amreading #romance #western

Montana Rose final 600x912Today’s REVOLVING BOOK is the historical western romance MONTANA ROSE by DeANN SMALLWOOD.

GET IT ON AMAZON: http://amzn.to/1URhufW

ABOUT THE STORY: Rose is a rancher at heart. There’s no doubt in her mind that if given another chance, she can make a success of homesteading. She will not fail this time.

People scoff, saying ranching is too much of a job for a lone woman to undertake. But Rose is no ordinary woman. She may be petite, stylish, and beautiful, but she is also strong and driven. Every aspect of ranching brings joy to her heart. Then why is she here in Wise River, Montana, taking orders from a mean-spirited school board and attempting something she has no clue how to do? Teaching?

Jesse Rivers carries his own baggage on his wide shoulders. He’s been called home by a dying stepmother to take over the Rocking R Ranch and the care of a belligerent and wounded brother.

A rugged, lanky cowboy, Jesse is also demanding, surly, and afraid to love. No, he can’t love. What if he has buried inside him the same volatile anger as his father, resulting in brutality by strong fists or a whip?

Then Jesse meets Rose. Strong willed, outspoken, determined, and oh-so-desirable.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Alexandria Casey, thirty-five, just had a reality check. Life didn’t go as she expected once she said ‘I do.’ After her divorce, Alex meets someone new. He’s twenty-eight, British, a television star, and determined to make her notice him. She would rather hide from the paparazzi and the microscope they bring upon his personal life.

“Every time I hear, ‘And they lived happily ever after’ and Tinkerbell comes out with her magic wand to end the movie, I feel like reaching for the bug spray and a fly swatter.” – Alexandria Casey

PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY REVIEW:

http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/reviews/single/9780979386923?permamore

“In this inspirational and inspiring romance, North Carolina writer and caterer Alex Casey falls for British actor Parker Grey, who’s visiting her town to celebrate a friend’s engagement. Collier infuses a sweet innocence and old-fashioned values into this contemporary, which has two flawed protagonists trying to move past a boatload of issues: media gossip, past mistakes, and Alex’s minor preoccupation with being 35 to Parker’s 28. Both Alex and Parker have their share of issues, but they’re also both refreshingly positive and appealing. Their attraction to each other is gradually developed and based on common values, such as their mutual interest in improving their relationships with God. The few displays of physical affection are modest. The plot, like the characters, never gets too weighed down with drama or religious jargon. The natural evolution of the protagonists reinforces the theme of faith and destiny and also the power of personal choice, making this an uplifting read.” Agent: Carolyn Martin
