New Release and Giant Western Romance Giveaway!!!

Worth the Wait is here!!!

YeeHaw! It’s always fun to see hard work come to fruition, and this last week my latest addition to the Ladies of Harper’s Station series was released into the world. Worth the Wait is a sequel to No Other Will Do, but it can be read on its own if you haven’t read the first one.

This e-novella pairs shopkeeper Victoria Adams with freighter  Benjamin Porter. Tori is a single mom with a four-year-old son and has been hurt in the past by men. She tries to keep Ben at a distance despite his honorable ways and kindness toward her and her son, but when an opportunity to expand both their businesses by forging a partnership in a delivery service presents itself, she can’t say no. Ben woos her with patience and practicality, and Tori slowly begins to warm to the idea of letting a man inside her heart. But when an accident strikes, and the ugly truth about her past is exposed, their chance at love may be lost forever.

This is a quick read and priced at only $1.99. I hope you’ll give it a try. You can click the cover to order.

  1. I love cowboys and that there is always a HEA when the cowboy gets his girl.

    Blessings,
    Cindy W.

    1. Oh, yes. HEA is a MUST! And no one rides off into the sunset better than a cowboy on a horse. 🙂

  2. I love the cowboys and returning to a world that really no longer exists.

    1. I agree, Debra. That’s why I love historical fiction – the escape into the past. Strong people triumphing over hardship and leaning on each other to face things together. we need a little more of that in today’s individualistic or even narcissistic world.

  3. I love the sweeping landscape and the hardships that show how strong the characters are!

    1. Yes! That inner strength of the pioneering spirit. Love that, Heidi. Thanks!

  4. I like the idea of people starting new lives for themselves in a new to them land, and all the individual resources they had to bring to that effort. I also like the idea of open land and open spaces in my mind’s eye, away from the hurly burly of modern day life. It’s not that historical figures weren’t busy making a go of it, but it was more about working to live, and not living to work or to buy stuff or just run around for the heck of it at breakneck speed going nowhere.

    1. So true, Eliza. The West was the perfect place to start over with a clean slate. A person willing to work hard could accomplish amazing things. And yes, I certainly long for the slower pace sometimes when this techno-world spins me dizzy with all the different directions it pulls.

  5. Hi Karen, I always love me a cowboy, even though I grew up in the suburbs. Nothing like a man on a horse, his eyes peeking up from the brim of a Stetson! I love their self-reliance and chivalry. Good luck with the new release.

    1. Thanks, Tanya. You’re right about those cowboys. Chivalry wasn’t just for knights of old. The cowboy code dictated it as well. Great call!

  6. I enjoy finding out about the history of the American West. The stories often contain interesting pieces of historical information and give us some insight into the daily life of those who lived in those times and places.

    Thank you so much for the link to the giveaway. There are so many of my favorite authors participating.

    1. Wishing you the best of luck with the contest, Patricia. I’m pulling for a P&P reader to win!

      And, yes, I love stumbling upon fascinating historical facts while I’m researching my books as well as learning from others as a reader. That’s part of what makes the journey to the past so absorbing and fun. 🙂
