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.

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.

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. Will she give in to his pursuit and learn to love once more?

“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

THE STORY:
The heart of change is the change of heart.

Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.

CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.

And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!

CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back.

After all, life is about making choices.

Even if it means leaving a stable career.

Even if it means leaving friends and moving half-way around the world.

Even if it means living with her mother’s rejection.

Even if it means losing her heart.

Even if it means risking her very life.

AUTHOR BIO:

Christine Mazurk is a business woman and Ironman triathlete with a passion for writing stories about ‘heart’. Her business experiences and participation in endurance events have allowed her to live and travel the world with her husband John and their two cats. She believes things happen for a reason. Their two 18-year-old cats died within three months of each other, and though she and her husband agreed to wait at least a year to adopt new kittens, their new guardian angels in heaven had a different idea, so thirteen days after the second one passed, on a cold, wet, Christmas Eve, a little black kitten – now named Tango – found them. They adopted Samba, another all black kitten, a few weeks later.
