A Bride for Dalton by Caroline Clemmons @carolinclemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #western historical romanceCaroline Clemmons, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

A Bride for Dalton by Caroline Clemmons

Genre Western historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Rebecca wants a husband but not the man her stepbrother/guardian insists she wed. To escape his threats she turns to a family friend for help. Reverend McClain suggests she enter a proxy marriage to his only living relative, a nephew who ranches in Montana. Out of options, she agrees. Until she arrives in Sweet Springs, she has no idea the telegram with instructions to her supposed groom has not been delivered. Where does that leave her?

Dalton is working with dangerous men to accomplish his goal. The last thing he needs at this time is a wife in the way. He is a gentleman and sees no other solution than to complete the vows. How is he going to keep her out of harm’s way while he completes this job?

Rebecca and Dalton embark on married life in unusual circumstances. Can love blossom in tumultuous times?

Why did you write this book?

I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this multi-author series, The Proxy Brides, by Christine Sterling Bortner, the series originator. This is my second in the series—the first was A Bride for Gideon. I’ve enjoyed writing this story I loved writing the premise of a bride who thinks she’s married a man. When she arrives, he has no idea what she’s talking about. What is she to do? What is he to do? I hope readers will want to learn what comes next!

What is your favorite genre to read?

Although I read many genres, my favorite stories are western historical mail-order brides. I also love reading Regencies but have never attempted to write one.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood. That book is a clever combination of English Victorian and American western historical.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m writing a Christmas story at the moment—even though we are experiencing near 100 degree F weather. I love Christmas, so getting into the mood is not difficult for me. In fact, Melody, Angel Creek Christmas Brides book 7, is already up for pre-order.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In addition to a couple of Christmas stories this year, An Agent for Lydia in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series will be out January 10, followed by an energetic release schedule for 2020. Writing is bliss for me—even on difficult days, I’m doing a job I love.

Through a crazy twist of fate, Caroline Clemmons was not born on a Texas ranch. To compensate for this illogical error, she writes about handsome cowboys, feisty ranch women, and scheming villains in a tiny office her family calls her pink cave. She and her Hero live in North Central Texas cowboy country where they ride herd on their dog and three rescued indoor cats as well as providing nourishment outdoors for squirrels, birds, and other critters.
The over fifty titles she has created in her pink cave have made her an Amazon bestselling author and won several awards. She writes sweet to sensual romances about the West, both historical and contemporary as well as time travel and mystery. Her series include the Kincaids, McClintocks, Stone Mountain Texas, Bride Brigade, Texas Time Travel, Texas Caprock Tales, Loving A Rancher, and Pearson Grove as well as numerous single titles and contributions to multi-author sets. When she’s not writing, she loves spending time with her family, reading her friends’ books, lunching with friends, browsing antique malls, checking Facebook, and taking the occasional nap.

Deborah’s Dilemma by Caroline Clemmons

Genre historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
What can Deborah do to protect herself from the devil plaguing her hometown?
Can a young man who’s been away for six years fit into the community he left?
What madman is responsible for the murder and mayhem plaguing Pearson Grove?
Deborah Taber has been concerned by her inability to choose a life’s occupation. That worry was pushed aside when someone shot her brother and fire bombed her family’s newspaper, The Pearson Grove Gazette. She believes Trey Pearson is innocent of attacking her brother—isn’t he? She’s had a crush on Trey since second grade and desperately wants to trust him.
Wade Pearson III, called Trey, is happy to be home on Pearson Ranch after six years in New England. He trained to manage his family’s far-reaching investments. Nothing prepared him to be accused of murder or targeted by a killer. If not for quick action by the sheriff, Trey would have been lynched by vigilantes. He wants to help trap the real villain while protecting Deborah, her family, and his.
Can Deborah and Trey survive the threats against them? Will this clever murderer be caught before he delivers his terrible revenge against those he believes slighted him?
Why did you write this book?
Deborah’s Dilemma is book 3 in my Pearson Grove Series set in North Central Texas in 1885. I wanted this series to explore the diverse young women in a small town, including their dreams and their efforts to achieve them.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical western romance and second would be Regency. I love 19th century history in particular and enjoy reading books set in that time.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Julie Garwood’s Prince Charming probably ties with Fallon from Louis L’Amour’s Fallon but for different reasons. Taylor has far more strength than she realizes and used her resources to rescue her niece and nephew and their companion. Fallon believes himself beyond redemption and yet he works harder than anyone to save the town he began as a scam.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing An Agent for Lily in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series. This new series is a popular series but this is my first contribution.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll have four more of the Pearson Grove series, another Proxy Brides, another Pinkerton Matchmaker, and two Christmas novellas. The rest of the year will be busy!

After 34 years alone, Michael “Monk” Magonagle is falling in love with Betsie and is fond of her son. Monk is certain she is not free of the men her late husband cheated.

Garnet by by Caroline Clemmons

Genre Historical western romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Garnet Chandler is fighting to hold onto her café, her niece and nephew, and her sanity after the deaths of her husband, his brother, and his sister-in-law. A persistent prowler and the threat of losing custody of her niece and nephew spur her to action. She doesn’t need another man, but she needs a husband long enough to convince the children’s grandparents she can offer them a stable home.
Bounty hunter Adam Bennett was ready to settle down when his friend was killed by a horse thief. He set out to capture the man who had also killed a guard when escaping prison. Adam must have let down his defenses because the man he followed and two cohorts waylaid Adam, beating him and stealing all his possessions before kicking him down a steep ravine. Adam is determined to capture the three as soon as he heals from their encounter.
Garnet and Adam join forces to achieve both their goals. Will that be enough?
Why did you write this book?
When Charlene Raddon asked me to be in this series, I agreed with her that The Widows of Wildcat Ridge would be an exciting project. Using her parameters, I chose to write about Garnet, a young woman widowed by a horrific mining disaster which also claimed the lives of many people who ran to help rescue the miners. I decided she should have her niece and nephew to raise. (I love stories which include children, don’t you?) The story grew from that premise.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I am an eclectic reader but my preference is western historical romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
My favorite would have to be a tie between Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood and Jenny Jones from The Promise Of Jenny Jones by Maggie Osbourne.
What are you working on at the moment?
Monk’s Bride, a novella in my Kincaid series
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to the one above, I will write more in my new series, Pearson Grove. Each book will have as a heroine the women mentioned in MAIL-ORDER MORIAH, book one of the series. Those are Lula, Alexandra, Deborah, Corinne, Felicity, and Evelyn.

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

About the Author

Caroline Clemmons is an Amazon bestselling and award winning author of historical and contemporary western romances. A frequent speaker at conferences and seminars, she has taught workshops on characterization, point of view, and layering a novel.

Interview with Caroline Clemmons

Why did you write this book?
My husband and I enjoy walking through and reading about Southwestern pre-historic ruins. In Garza County TX, there is a Clovis site but it’s on private property and closed to the public, the Garza site. One of the scenes in Grant Me The Moon came to me while my husband and I were driving home from Lubbock back to the DFW Metroplex and we passed through Post, the seat of Garza County. The story has nagged me for years. When Keta Diablo invited me to be in a contemporary western anthology, Come Love A Cowboy, I knew this story had to be the one I wrote.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Western romance is my favorite, but I also like other genres: Regency, WWII, women’s fiction, westerns, and mysteries.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Julie Garwood’s Prince Charming.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on another of my Bride Brigade Series, Cassandra, that will be out in April and then Ophelia in May.
Please tell us about your latest book.
All Tory Fraser intended was to show her high school history club students a local archeology dig. How could she know the excursion would involve a murder? Or that one of her students would be suspected as the killer? And she had no idea she would meet the man of her dreams.
Grant Grayson has taken over management of Grayson Ranch near Post, Texas to give his grandfather a less arduous schedule. A flash flood washed away an old talus slope on the ranch to reveal a prehistoric cave that is a Clovis site. Being a good citizen, he invited the nearest large university archaeology department to excavate the cave. When a gorgeous blonde high school teacher asks his permission to take her students to the site, how can he deny her? Especially when he is instantly attracted to her as he’s never been to anyone.
Tory and Grant are drawn in to the investigation to clear her student but unintentionally make themselves a target. Now they must evade the killer to celebrate their new found love.
