Margaret’s Story:

A Pony Express Christmas

Stranded alone in Nebraska Territory in 1862 with a broken wagon and two stubborn mules, Ellie-Mae Myers has no way to continue searching for her twin brother along the deserted Pony Express route or of returning home to Kentucky. Could a man on the verge of being hanged be the answer to her prayers?






The Nutcracker Bride

A Novella

When Texas ranger, Chad Prescott, wakes up from a gunshot injury in Kansas, he finds himself surrounded by German nutcrackers and nursed by the feisty Lucy Langdon. Could this be the start of a beautiful friendship or just a bad dream?

My latest release is a novella collection called The Christmas Heirloom which contains a collection of stories that are connected by a luckenbooth brooch that is handed down from mother to daughter across the generations, bringing true love to whomever possesses it. In my particular story, Gift of the Heart, I played with the biblical motif of Ruth and Boaz and added a dose of Beauty and the Beast along with a matchmaking cat. A widow and her young daughter move to Hope Springs for a fresh start, but with no money to secure a home, Ruth must convince a wealthy resort owner to accept her heirloom brooch as collateral. Will the pin that brought love to three generations soften the heart of a wounded recluse and give Ruth a second chance at love?

My Facebook fan group The Posse played an integral role in plotting this story, and I dedicated it to them in thanks for their help. They were the ones to spark the idea of Bo suffering residual pain from a childhood injury and needing to take the waters himself as well as creating Theodore, our matchmaking cat. The story would not have been the same without them.

I don’t have a Christmas novella, so instead I want to showcasethe re-release of one of my Christmas novels, The Christmas Journey, which is bundled with two other Christmas stories for a festive read.

Philadelphia lawyer Ryland Lassiter is everything Josephine Wylie wants – for a brother-in-law!  As the sole supporter of her family, Josie’s plans for herself have always had to wait.  But Ryland will be ideal as the new head of the Wylie clan…once he finally realizes how perfect he is for her sister.

Ry knows its time to settle down.  The newly appointed guardian to a friend’s daughter, he’s ready for a home and family.  All he needs is a bride…and Josie’s sister is not the Wylie who has caught his eye.  If only Josie would see the truth – that the only Christmas present he needs is her love.

  14. Hello.. still trying to understand this.

    1. Hey, Tom, I just emailed you privately!

  15. I have now followed Margaret, Karen, and Winnie on BookBub.
    All of the stories sound like wonderful reads. Just because I am partial to Nutcrackers, Margaret’s The Nutcracker Bride caught my attention first. But if I have a chance I plan to read them all.

    1. Hi Donna, I’m partial to nutcrackers, too. Do you collect them? I have a few, not many.

      1. I don’t collect Nutcrackers, but my daughter did for several years. She doesn’t have any of the ‘life-size’ but does have some large sit-by-the table, and several of differing table sizes. And she also has some ornaments. She hasn’t put them out the last couple-three years as she had a baby-toddler grandson moving around. He’s now 4, and not living with her now, so she might put at least some out.

  16. Love stories that take place around christmas.

  17. All these books look amazing! They’re all on my to-read list this season, and I’ve already read The Christmas Heirloom and loved it 🙂

  18. Merry early Christmas!

  19. Glad I remembered to check back in! Some books I’ve had my eyes on are featured today and I love connecting with the authors! Thanks so much for the giveaway!
