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.

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.

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

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

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. My historical romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie, and Wyoming Heather. 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, will be out later this year. 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 and enjoyed.

He kissed her and she was lost . . . A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING by USA Today Bestselling author Patricia McLinn #amreading #romance

d3dfe98a-9d47-42bd-b21a-222384ad3220

Today’s REVOLVING BOOK is the BRAND NEW RELEASE: A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING by USA Today Bestselling Author Patricia McLinn.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

The Kiss Was a Rehearsal, Did She Forget to Say ‘Cut’?

Filmmaker Kay Aaronson left New York for small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, to jumpstart her career. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan. When Kay’s leading man stalks off the set of the music video she’s shooting at the historic Bliss House, the town’s wise and beloved Miss Trudi invites recent divorcee Rob Dalton to take the part. Kay sets the scene, increasingly distracted by this businessman who’s far more handsome than her missing star. When her hands-on direction leads to a fiery kiss, the sparks are visible for all to see. Everyone thinks they’re right for each other, but nobody knows the secrets they’re harboring. Or what it might mean if those secrets became public. Will Rob and Kay let fear determine their fate, or risk allowing themselves to explore where that first kiss might lead?

A Most Unlikely Wedding, Book 3 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s Marry Me series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair, and Jill Shalvis.

Praise for A Most Unlikely Wedding:

“I couldn’t put it down!” — Amazon Review 

“I was not only wanting to find out what happens with Kay and Rob, but was dying to know their scandals and what would happen with them. And the whole town of Tobias is filled with interesting characters. Two thumbs up!” — 5-Star Amazon Review

“(McLinn’s)  characters go through really great growth, both within themselves and with each other, … It makes it that much more satisfying.” — Amazon Review

“Kay is feisty and fantastic, Rob is hunky and frustrating … They’ve both got stuff going on that’s making it hard for them to be completely open with each other — and with the reader, which adds a whole new level of anticipation to the reading.” — Amazon Review

Praise for the Marry Me series:

“With her two latest books set in a perfectly realized and perfectly charming small town, McLinn has created two beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read.” – John Charles, American Library Association

“Gifted Patricia McLinn has written another wonderful series filled with emotion and romance.” — CataRomance Reviews

“McLinn delivers a wonderful romance. … I hope she never stops writing them.”  — 5-Star Amazon Review

“A heart-warming tale.” – 5-Star Amazon Review

SNEAK PEEK:

“Stand here, and watch.”

Kay dashed up the stairs to Laura’s mark, spun around and found the actress studying her nails. “Laura!” She waited until the younger woman looked up, then pinned her with her eyes. “Watch. Because next time I want you to do it exactly like this.”

She drew in a breath, set the mood in her head, and only then did she look at Rob.

He looked up at her. His face was serious, but there was something so alive in his eyes she couldn’t look anywhere else. 

He had extraordinary eyelashes. In an utterly masculine face, they were thick and lush and dark, both top and bottom, so from a distance they gave the impression his eyes were dark, almost smudgy. But at this distance, and especially with his eyes trained on her so intently, between the dark, dense fringe shone silvery eyes flecked with green and brown. 

Unending eyes.

She started down the steps to him. Not because her timing dictated the move, but because she wanted to see those eyes closer. When he stepped up and held out a hand to her, her pace quickened. One more step—

And then she was there, in his arms, He drew her in. She wound her arms around his neck. Their mouths met.

And Kay Aaronson burst into flames.
