SYNOPSIS:
Callie Collins, a proud woman in the late 1800’s, is a liar and a darned good one, a master of the dubious art. She is also a dreamer. Her greatest hope is to reach a new life in South Pass City, Wyoming, where she can open a bakery and live an independent life. To be successful, she will need her greatest deception to date, a mythical fiancé who waits at the end of the line. As a woman alone, she has to prove to Seth McCallister, the wagon master, that she has the wherewithal and the stamina to survive months of drought, dust, hardships, and even the risk of death.

Seth McCallister is mystified by the audacity and determination of Callie Collins. His initial distrust and concern for Callie, a woman traveling alone, begins first as admiration, then friendship, then love, a love that he is forced to hold at bay. What he doesn’t realize is that there is no fiancé. To make matters worse, Callie develops feelings for Seth McCallister, too. Yet she feels certain that once he realizes her deception, he’ll turn away, ashamed of his love and trust in her.

REVIEWS: (AMAZON KINDLE)

Extremely well written. I found myself in the west, riding along on the wagon train with Callie struggling right along with her. Experiencing her every emotion, forging friendships,and falling in love I recommend this book to anyone with an adventurous spirit.

UNCONQUERABLE CALLIE is an enjoyable and entertaining love story. DeAnn Smallwood exhibits her talent for words with her tale of love, hardship, relationships, and determination. She does an excellent job of crafting a romance with the historical backdrop of a wagon train. Her depiction of the adventurous spirit of settlers, as well as the dangers and hardships they endured on their journey for a better life, was fascinating and excellent.

The heroine, Callie, a courageous woman determined to forge a life for herself, embarks on a treacherous excursion through Indian country, despite the obstacles or the dangers she must face. Along the way, her courage and giving nature wins the hearts of her fellow travelers, including the wagon master.

UNCONQUERABLE CALLIE is a sweet romance that will draw you in from the beginning to the end. It is resplendent with history, well-drawn characters, and vivid descriptions. The plot flows unfettered and solid with an engaging story line. This novel is for anyone who loves romance and history without sexual complications. A must read.

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

Sometimes you can’t run from PASSION’S SPIRIT by Christine Mazurk #womensfiction #amreading #romance


TODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is the women’s fiction/romance PASSION’S SPIRIT by CHRISTINE MAZURK.

WHERE YOU CAN GET IT: AMAZON: http://amzn.to/1U4HX9V

THE STORY:

Life is about the risks we take and the courage we display. For Natalie Walsh, switching from orthopedics to sports medicine lands her a job with team Fear US and Fear US2 setting her on a journey toward her true destiny.

She’s a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire who’s running from her past and searching for her proper place in this world. The annual team trip to Guam allows her to put the most distance between herself and her troubles, but places her face-to-face with the one person who challenges her ability to trust.

Mike Dawson, owner of the resort where the team stays, is known as the island’s surfer-dude playboy. He’s happy to show the beautiful tourists a good time, because he’s all about the short-term. No risk. No commitment. He vows to help the buttoned-up doctor relax and learn what island life is all about.

Even with spiritual forces at work, she still believes running will keep her safe. Physically. Emotionally. And though Mike continues to fight the magnetic pull, he’s more drawn to her each day.

For these two, things are not always as they appear, but will they listen to the Universe and have the courage to change for a better tomorrow?
