TWO BOOKS IN ONE MONTH–Cowboys of Summer & All for Love

I am in two novella collections releasing May 1. Both are available for pre-order right now.

Cowboys of Summer is super fun because I AM WRITING A CONTEMPORARY COWBOY STORY!!!

It’s a novella collection with Cheryl St.John, Tina Radcliffe, Lorna Seilstad, Missy Tippens and Sherri Shackleford. A really fun and talented group and we have had a lot of fun putting this together.

A little bit about

Cowboys of Summer

As the summer weather sizzles, relax by the pool with stirring tales of handsome cowboys and the spirited ladies who wrangle them into romance. Six of Christian fiction’s most beloved authors join forces to bring you a collection of humorous, romantic and heartfelt novellas set against the sultry heat of summer.
In Mary Connealy’s, “Dr. Tess and the Cowboy”, sparks fly when Dr. Tessa Rhoades discovers dinosaur bones on Joe Holt’s ranch and decides to excavate-even if that means kicking Joe off his own land.
In “Hometown Girl” by Cheryl St.John, injured rodeo champion Justin Cooper returns to the sleepy Oklahoma town he escaped for fame and fortune–and takes his biggest tumble yet–straight into the arms of Stevie Marshall, his first love who soon has him questioning his life choices.
In Tina Radcliffe’s, “Lake Effect”, cynical cowboy Tucker Jackson knows he’s in trouble when he starts counting the days until the end of summer and praying ‘summer girl’ Jessica Richards will find a home for her heart in Paradise.
In “His Lone Star Heart” by Missy Tippens, rancher Zeb West tries hard not to fall for Beecher Brown, the feisty but off-limits sister of his best friend. As she tries to prove she’s capable of running her family’s ranch–the one he’s trying to buy–he might just find he’s met his match…for life.
Will Lorna Seilstad’s characters make “Great Strides” when Dana Etherton, the owner of a horse therapy ranch, must choose between the kids she serves and Adam Malone, the embezzler who’s been assigned to do community service there?
When Paige Monroe agrees to draw the press away from a country star’s wedding by pretending to be the look-alike bride, she wasn’t counting on having very real feeling for her decoy fiancé, Sterling Tanner. Sherri Shackelford’s, “The Decoy Bride”, shows what happens when two people feigning love forget they’re acting.

AND’

The second book is —

All for Love

Another novella collection but this one with a spin. The book in this collection has been published before as an ebook. It’s The Boden Birthright. So if you’ve read that, you might want to read the others, or have a print copy of it. But I don’t want anyone to think it’s new and be unhappily surprised.

I’m in All for Love with Kristin Hunter and Jen Turano, both really talented authors and I’m delighted to get to be in this collection with them.

Three of Christian historical fiction’s beloved authors come together in this romantic and humorous collection of novellas featuring prequels to their latest series. New and loyal fans alike will enjoy these novellas previously released only as ebooks. Connealy’s “The Boden Birthright” journeys to the Old West, where ranch hand Chance Boden’s determination to be his own boss is challenged by his employer’s pretty daughter. Hunter’s “A Lady of Esteem” follows a Regency-era young lady whose chance at love and reputation in society are threatened by a nasty rumor. Turano’s “At Your Request” tells of a young woman who is humbled at her newly lowered status in society when she is reunited with the very man whose proposal she rejected.

Leave a comment to get your name in the drawing for an ecopy of Cowboys of Summer, that’s the only way this one is available…in ebook format…at least for now. And a real live copy of All for Love…….I’ll send these when I can get my hands on them!!!

Two books. Two winners.

  33. Anthologies have always been a favorite. With busy schedules, these shorter stories are often the only way we can get a good read in. It isn’t that we don’t like the full length books. It is just we often don’t have time to sit and read them in less than a few weeks. I love westerns, both historical and contemporary. The cowboy’s basic character has survived over the past century plus and they are still individuals to respect and love. I hope these books do well for you all.
