Cowboy Boss and His Destiny 
Early days of reading romance novels and women’s fiction laid
the groundwork for Mary J McCoy-Dressel to take up the pen and write her own memorable love stories
where love always wins. In her books, whether contemporary, historical, or paranormal,
you can expect a twist and turn along the way, maybe a tear, a laugh, a bit of arousal,
and even a little suspense. She loves to write stories with strong family ties,
lasting friendships, and gentlemen heroes with a touch of bad, with feisty women
who know how to handle them.
She lives in the Great Lake Basin area of the USA. Two grown
sons and an Australian Shepherd fur-baby dog complete her family. Mary loves communicating
with readers and friends. She also has a mailing list for readers who want to be
notified of new releases and important book updates. Visit her website for more
information. Mary is a member of Romance Writers of America.

Author Mary J. McCoy-Dressel

The Lighter side of romance but still sensual and sexy. Warm
your heart and give your nerve endings a tingle at the same time.
Tristan Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old
daughter on his own. His mother remains on the Double Dutch to lend a hand—giving
him the ability to maintain the ranch, tend to his horses, and keep up his small-time
ranching magazine. His attractive, new assistant is everything he wants in a woman,
including her ginger-red hair. But from his experience with women lately, he’s learned
that some don’t want a ready-made family. This one seems different, and he’s falling
hard. But, there’s his little blue-eyed girl, and he’ll protect Destiny’s heart
with everything within him. Until he knows for sure…
Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity
ends up a statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a family
betrayal from her past that still needs mending, she moves back home to the small
town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on her mind. When she is hired
by a local rancher to help with his ranching magazine, she finds herself profoundly
attracted to him. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal, and his little
girl is immediately drawn to her. It’s not just about two hearts taking a chance
now—or two people falling in love…

Heartbreak’s Reward 
(Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight #2)
Genre Contemporary Western Romance
Author Mary J. McCoy-Dressel
Book heat level (based on movie ratings G, PG, PG13, R): R
This book can be enjoyed on its own and out of series order.
Rancher Jase Carlson doesn’t understand the ache in the hollow of his chest, since
his ex-wife ripped his heart out. She doesn’t follow the court rules where his children
are concerned, making him even more pissed off. Harboring a bad attitude, he wishes
he wasn’t a gentleman when he comes to the aid of a quick-tempered, sexy blonde.
He can’t allow her tight jeans and sweet smile to sway him, even after he’s coerced
into spending time alone with her. Fighting the torturous battle going on within
his own mind and body, he can either deal with it—or succumb to the woman who appears
to be everything he didn’t know he needed.
In an attempt to save her rebellious teen sister from herself—as
her guardian, Brenna Page leaves everything behind and moves to Canyon Junction,
Arizona. When she unexpectedly meets a hot-headed cowboy with intense blue eyes
and muscles to die for, the first thing she wants to do is get away. Since she can’t
seem to shake him, Brenna wonders if that same grudge-filled cowboy with an attitude
is someone worth taking on. But still dealing with painful memories, and a sister
who wants nothing to do with Arizona, the last thing she needs right now is a horse
ranching cowboy interfering.
One wrong turn. Two broken families. Brought together by chance,
and need.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 

About the Author

Milou Koenings writes romance because,
like chocolate, stories with happy endings bring joy to the world and so make
it a better place.
She’s lived all over the world,
working as an intellectual property lawyer and freelance travel and technology
writer, but loves to stay home with her family more than anything.

Interview with Milou Koenings

Why
did you write this book?
Sweet romance and
holidays just seem to go together so well! This is a group project by 19 authors
from Sweet Romance Reads. We banded together to create a boxed set of holiday
novellas.  It was a fun way to get into
the Christmas spirit as early as possible. My contribution, Sweet Blizzard, is
another installment in my Green Pines Romance series. The story spun itself
after I came across my grandmother’s holiday spice cookie recipe.
What
is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, but as long as
a book has a good love story in it, I’ll read any genre – from contemporary
romance, to historicals or political thrillers.
Who
is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That’s a tough one.  Hermione Granger or Lisbeth Salander? Neither
of them are romantic heroines!  Sticking
to romantic heroines, I’ll vote for the little known Jean Paget from A Town
Like Alice by Nevil Shute. She’s strong, tough, kind – and based on the
war-time experiences of a group of real-life heroines that included my great-aunt.
What
are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming
months?
I’m working on another a
Green Pines Romance, a prequel to my novel Reclaiming Home, as well on as a
brand new series.
Please
tell us about your latest book
.
Sweet Christmas Kisses 2
is a boxed set to welcome in the holiday season with 19 heartwarming and
wholesome novellas from New York Times, USA Today, national bestselling, and
award-winning authors.
Our novellas take you

Passions in the Dust 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and
introduces the story.

About the Author

Faye Hall’s passion driven, mystery
filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during
the late 1800’s.
Each of
her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from
Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this
part of the world.
Each of
her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine,
surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.
These
romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers
so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural
townships of North Queensland.
Faye
finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up
in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on
people she has met in her life.
Faye
was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life
after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children
in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Interview with Faye Hall

Why did you write
this book?
Passions in the Dust is set mostly on a cattle station in
Bowen, North Queensland and describes the hardships so many settlers went
through.  Along with showcasing the
hardships, I wrote this book to try and show a romantic side to Australian
history that is not so unlike that of England or the Americas.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I enjoy both a good romance and a good murder mystery.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Currently working on ‘Lust & Chastity’ which is my own
take on one of the seven deadly sins and heavenly virtues.  But I also two other scripts currently being
looked at by publishers.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Ella
Matthias thought by coming to Bowen, Australia she would find freedom from the
life of servitude she’d been forced into, as well as the lover, Seth Kenner,
who had so coldly deserted her.  Never
could she have imaged that it was Seth who had sent for her.
Again
being drawn into Seth’s life, Ella finds herself surrendering to passion, and
experiencing pleasures in the Australian outback that she had only ever dreamed
of.
These
pleasure come under threat though by those who wish to destroy everything they
had worked so hard to achieve.  Together
they must fight bush fires, cattle rustlers, poisoned stock and a wife and
fiancé who had come to Australia to claim what they believe is rightfully
their’s.

Andrea R. Cooper author of Viking Fire answers five easy questions
to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Andrea has always created characters and stories. But it
wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her
fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They
exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world.
Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like
the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids.
She believes in the power of change and counting each
moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Tex-Mex. I love the cheese, spiciness, and variety of
Tex-Mex food. Nowhere else has food like ours in Texas. (ex. I won’t mention
the state, but when queso was ordered, it was a can of cheese soup   :P)
Describe the perfect vacation.
Is there such a thing for a family? LOL. For me, a perfect
vacation would be one where the kids have a great time, don’t whine, sleep in,
and my husband and I can relax. We’re saving up for a Disney cruise – so maybe
in about five years J
Tell us about your
favorite toy as a child.
Barbies. Not so much for the wardrobe, house, or cars
(though they were cool), but I created stories and characters with them. I had
soap operas and family sagas galore.
What are your hobbies?
Besides writing, I love Zumba, dancing, reading, and
catching up on my favorite shows: Game of Thrones, Reign, Vikings, Vampire
Diaries, The Originals, I Zombi, Lost Girl, etc.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
The same genres I write: fantasy, paranormal, historical
romance, romantic suspense. I’m also a member of several book clubs, and they
make me read novels I would never choose for myself, but expand my horizons and
lead to great discussions.

Bram, the Viking, finds himself without future or inheritance as a younger son in his family. A marriage to the Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will fight along with the Liannons against any foe – Irish or Viking. However, the Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?
With the blame for a rival Laird’s death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.

What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Seafood. Any kind, but I do love lobster. If I’m in Cape Cod
my very favorite is lobster roll. Yum! I spent many summers camping on the cape
digging for clams and having clam bakes. My dad always had a container of fried
clams from Sandy’s.
Who is your “book
boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Jamie Fraser from Outlander. Hard to beat him from the book
or show. Try listening to the book on audio. That’s the best! (((sigh)))

suntan lotion and a Margarita please!
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
I read a variety—erotic romance, paranormal or contemporary,
of course, but I also love thrillers, ghost stories and Sci-Fi. Might be why I
write in a couple sub-genres too.
