MICAH’S JEWEL by ANNA DYNOWSKI (contemporary inspirational romance)

The Moretti Men - Micah's JewelFRIDAY’S FANTASTIC FIND is the contemporary inspirational romance MICAH’S JEWEL by ANNA DYNOWSKI

Book 1 of the Moretti Men series

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

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 as a kind and caring family. A fast climb up the political ladder, fast red sports cars, and fast sexy women make up Micah Moretti’s world. He has it all: money, power, politics. And the Prime Minister’s seat is within his grasp until a scandal pulls him down and pushes him to Willow Creek, Ontario and the Triple M Farm, a place where he can slow down, lie low, and plot his comeback. Plans don’t include working the “family” farm with his “brothers.” Or running straight into Sierra Rilstone, a constituent with deep ties to the community, and the hometown girl who stole his heart many years ago. Good thing they have nothing in common now. Except their undeniable attraction— and her young daughter, Savannah.

SYNOPSIS:

In 2009, New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: she sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor, and moved her family to Paris. “Paris in Love: A Memoir” chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow or cars to park, Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life—discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen’s sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband’s notions of quality time; her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools—not to mention puberty—in a foreign language; and her mother-in-law Marina’s raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as Marina overfeeds Milo, the family dog).

“Paris in Love” invites the reader into the life of a most enchanting family, framed by la ville de l’amour.

STELLAR REVIEWS FOR “PARIS IN LOVE”:

“After fighting cancer, James took a sabbatical from her university job as a professor and Shakespeare scholar to spend a year in Paris with her husband and two kids. In this delightful charm-bracelet of a memoir, James, also the author of 20 romance novels, offers quirky, often laugh-out-loud funny snapshots of her adventures as an American suddenly immersed in all things French-food, clothes, joie de vivre. Her portrait of her family is equally lighthearted, and her reference guide is indispensable.” – People Magazine, 4 of 4 stars

“Eloisa James’ enchanting memoir about living in France for a year features a funny fat Chihuahua named Milo, enormous chunks of dark delicious chocolate, American and French culture-clashing, and, of course, the envy-inducing éclat of elegant French females… Written like a spool of lovely prose haiku, Paris in Love gives the reader a sense of being immersed along with James in Paris for the year rather than reading her memories. As if in real time, you see the rain, taste the food, observe the people…In the end, Paris in Love isn’t about going abroad, it’s about making the most of the time we’re given in life. This would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift.” – USA Today

“Paris in Love: A Memoir is a series of charming outtakes…including [Eloisa’s] children’s initial struggles and later triumphs in school, as well as her own increasingly bold forays into French-ness, from food and flea markets to embracing her femininity—where better than Paris to rediscover the pleasures of lingerie, post-mastectomy (and reconstructive surgery)? Along the way, James savors the moments of dissonance and satisfaction that come from the shared adventure of figuring out life in another country.” – Vogue.

“Written with a dry sense of wit and an elegant sense of style, James’ literary love letter to the City of Light is inspiring and insightful.” – Chicago Tribune

“[James’s] online musings on food, fashion, and family became the basis for this chronicle of an unforgettable year in Paris, where, without the constant claims of academic life and the rigorous demands of the publishing treadmill, James rediscovered the simple pleasures of life. Her chic, charming, and completely captivating memoir of a healing year in the City of Light is bound to inspire readers to dream of setting off on their own escapes.” – Bookscan

“What a beautiful and delightful tasting menu of a book: the kids, the plump little dog, the Italian husband. Reading this memoir was like wandering through a Parisian patisserie in a dream.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

AUTHOR BIO

New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James writes historical romances for HarperCollins Publishers. Her novels have been published to great acclaim. A reviewer from USA Today wrote of Eloisa’s very first book that she “found herself devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar”; later People Magazine raved that “romance writing does not get much better than this.” Her novels have repeatedly received starred reviews from Publishers’ Weekly and Library Journal and regularly appear on the best-seller lists.

After graduating from Harvard University, Eloisa got an M.Phil. from Oxford University, a Ph.D. from Yale and eventually became a Shakespeare professor, publishing an academic book with Oxford University Press. Currently she is an associate professor and head of the Creative Writing program at Fordham University in New York City. Her “double life” is a source of fascination to the media and her readers. In her professorial guise, she’s written a New York Times op-ed defending romance, as well as articles published everywhere from women’s magazines such as More to writers’ journals such as the Romance Writers’ Report.

SYNOPSIS/BLURB:
Mail order bride, Livy Green, is desperate to escape the memories of her past. John Taylor will never love another woman again, but his children need a mother. Will they learn to trust each other, or will their pasts interfere?

Longing to escape the awful memories and the saloon she once sang in, Livy Green lies about her past so she can be a wife to John Taylor and mother to his two young children. Overwhelmed by the task, she struggles to put her
resentment aside and love them as her own.

John loved his first wife and is still heartbroken over the loss, but he needs a mother for his children. When his distant and unfriendly mail order bride arrives, he begins to doubt his decision, though one glance into Livy’s terrified green eyes tells him he can’t turn his back on her.

As Livy’s past catches up with her and suspicious accidents begin to happen on the ranch, she is tempted to come clean and tell John the truth. But will he send her back if she does? Or will they forever be CHASING CLOVERS?

REVIEWS:

RomCon Reviews gives HER KIND OF MAN 5 CROWNS!

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.

It was heart wrenching, lighthearted, touching and romantic at times as well as filled with so many misunderstandings that you couldn’t help but cry and other times be laughing out loud.
