Healing Hearts by CB Clark

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Western

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Reeling from loss and heartbreak, Stella King is desperate to escape painful memories. The position of nanny on an isolated ranch in British Columbia’s rugged Chilcotin Plateau seems the answer to her prayers.

Cattle rancher, Dawson Wheeler, has worked hard to overcome grief and build a predictable world for his young daughter. The last thing he needs is the all-too-attractive Stella disrupting the smooth running of his ranch, especially now that disturbing incidents are happening on his property.

Defending his land against those who want to gut it will be a challenge, but the biggest threat of all may be to his heart.

Why did you write this book?

The idea behind Healing Hearts came from my shock when I learned that in British Columbia, landowners don’t own the rights to the land under the surface. That opens the door for mining companies to survey private property in search of valuable minerals. Healing Hearts is the story of a strong, independent rancher faced with the threat of a mine development on his property and a murderer who’ll do anything to stop the mine.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense

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

Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind

What are you working on at the moment?

Another romantic suspense. This one involves a heroine who comes across a child kidnapping victim when she’s out in the woods snowshoeing. She must escape the clutches of a ruthless killer and, with the help of a handsome detective, stop the kidnapper from striking again.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Healing Hearts was released on March 23, and it usually takes me about a year from starting the writing of a new book and going through the many rounds of editing, before a book is published. At the moment, I’m working on two stories that I’m excited about writing.

Genre western romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

After Meg Telford’s husband dies in the war and is lauded as a hero, she can’t keep the ranch without a man to shoulder the workload. Nothing will stop her from saving Joe’s dream. The war has taken nearly all the able-bodied men—and a devilishly handsome bad boy seems her only choice.

Town pariah, Tye Hatcher has a reputation as a hell-raiser, but he’s looking to prove himself and has his own plans for her land. Meg’s proposal might be too good to be true, but he’s willing to take a chance, even if the risk is his heart.

Struggling with the rejection of the townspeople and guilt over her changing feelings for this convenient new husband, Meg’s vulnerable dreams and their hard work will be for naught unless she and Tye reveal their secrets. Neither can change the past, but is a better future within their grasp?

Stuart: Bachelors and Babies #10 by Caroline Clemmons @carolinclemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #westernhistoricalCaroline 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.

Stuart, Bachelors and Babies (#10) by Caroline Clemmons

Genre western historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

He is building for the future…

She is escaping the past…

Trouble could destroy their family

Stuart McGee needs the bounty from capturing the two men he’s trailing. That reward will allow him to buy the ranch of his dreams. When he encounters the men, he learns they’ve killed a young couple. The big surprise is there’s a baby in their cabin. What is Stuart supposed to do with a baby girl?

Georgina Potter has to get away from home. Her family treats her as a screw-up. She is determined to prove them wrong. Starting over as a mail-order bride might not be the best way but it’s the only way she can get away from her family. When she arrives she learns her groom has married someone else. What is she going to do with no money, no groom, and nowhere to stay?

When Georgina and Stuart marry, neither is convinced it’s the right choice. Baby Adeline captures the affection of both. Can working together as parents ignite romance for Georgina and Stuart? When trouble comes, will their fledgling relationship disintegrate or become stronger?

Why did you write this book?

I was invited by Charlene Raddon to be a part of the multi-author project Bachelors and Babies. The premise is a bachelor in some way finds or is responsible for a baby for whom he is unprepared. That immediately put an idea in my mind and I was eager to participate. I’m so glad I did because I enjoyed writing this book. I think it’s the best I’ve written in a while. The heroine has “incidents” I had fun creating. Beta readers have said it’s their favorite.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Western historical but I read everything except horror, true crime, erotica, or sci-fi

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

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood.

What are you working on at the moment?

Another fun project, Polka With Pauline, one of the Matchmaker’s Ball series books. I really enjoy these multi-author projects (MAP). They force me to stretch myself and I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve benefitted from the experience.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I have a busy year planned. After Polka With Pauline in March, Mail-Order Victoria will release in April followed by a novella a month through December.

Read Always on My Mind by Andrea Downing @AndiDowning #RLFblog #NewRelease #westernromanceAndrea Downing 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.

Always on My Mind by Andrea Downing

Genre Vintage Western Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

1972 – Vietnam, the pill, upheaval, hippies. Wyoming rancher Cooper Byrnes, deeply attached to the land and his way of life, surprises everyone when he falls for vagabond hippie Cassie Halliday. Fascinated and baffled, he cannot comprehend his attraction—or say the words she wants to hear. Cassie finds Coop intriguingly different. As she keeps house for him and warms his bed at night, she admits to herself she loves him but she misinterprets Coop’s inability to express his feelings. Parted, each continues to think of the other, but how can either of them reach out to say, “You were ‘always on my mind’?”

Why did you write this book?

I learned that there had actually been a bust-up between ranchers and hippies at my local dancehall in Wilson, WY, in the seventies. You really can’t get two more disparate groups—ranchers with their attachment to the land, their feeling for the generations that have worked it before them, and then hippies who are mostly freewheeling and care-free, unattached to anything pretty much. I just had to think, what if?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read a lot of women’s lit. and literary fiction. I’m afraid to read too much romance in case I steal someone’s idea, although really, there are only so many tropes for romance.

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

So difficult Kayelle! But there are characters in a literary romance, I’ll call it, Midnight Cactus by Bella Pollen, and I got very involved with them.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m thinking and promoting and haven’t started another book. I just sent in a new mss. to my editor so I’ll have my hands full for a while between that and promoting this one, but that’s not to say I don’t have ideas on the bubble.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hopefully, the historical western romance I just sent into my editor. It’s about a lady doctor and a former gunslinger trying to hang up his guns until he learns that his family have been murdered.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

When Lydia Wood is left at the altar, she believes something beyond her groom’s control has happened. Two years with no word have hardened her heart. She has to get away from her parents’ constant urging her to choose an acceptable husband and wed. Becoming a Pinkerton agent suits her plans.

Pinkerton Agent Jake Hunter has recovered from injuries that put him in a coma and a long convalescence. He realizes Lydia would have been injured had she been with him. He vows to distance himself from the one person who means the world to him to protect her.

When they are paired for an investigation of bank robbers they must follow the trail to a dangerous hangout of men on the run. Can the two successfully pull off their charade and capture the robbers or will this trip confirm Jake’s worst fears?

Why did you write this book?

I was invited by Christine Sterling Bortner, creator of the series. This is my second book in this popular series and I find them fun to write because they’re a bit different. Virginia McKevitt created the covers for the series.

What is your favorite genre to read?

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

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood.

Somewhere in here Christine Bortner has a new series set in the Civil War, a book for each state involved. My state is Louisiana. I like writing in her multi-author projects because she is well organized and it’s easy to work with her. In July, Desperate In Delaware for a new series called Yours Truly: Lovelorn.

Read Satin Boots by Holly Bargo @hollybargobooks #RLFblog #NewRelease #westernromanceHolly Bargo, 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.

Satin Boots by Holly Bargo

Genre: Western Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Enjoy these sweet, clean romances set in the American Old West:

Angels High: A woman who makes her living by winning at a man’s game learns to expect trouble, especially when the stakes are high. But when trouble finds her this time, Angelica Durant gets more than she bargained for.

The Mail Order Bride’s Choice: Looking to improve her circumstances, an indigent woman travels across the country as a mail order bride to meet a fiancé who has plans for her other than marriage.

Coming Home: Life is hard. No one knows this better than Dessie Humphrey who’s trying to hold onto the family farm. When aid comes in the form of a wanted gunslinger, she’s in no position to refuse.

Pride And Peace: It’s an open secret on the Lazy Five that Jessie North is a woman, but that doesn’t stop Daniel Harper from reacting badly when he learns about it. Can he overcome his prejudice when the proud half-breed saves his life?

Resurrection: Undertakers bury the dead; they don’t resurrect bodies left for dead. But that’s exactly what Antonio DiCarlo does when a lovely Swedish immigrant lands on his doorstep.

The Rancher’s First Love: When a gravely wounded Chinese woman collapses on Clint Cheswick’s front porch, he doesn’t expect to compete with his half-breed foreman for her affection.

Why did you write this book?

I previously collaborated with bestselling western author Russ Towne on a collection of western short stories, Six Shots Each Gun. We had a lot of fun. Since I’d hopped into his genre for that project, he suggested collaborating again and edging into my genre: romance, but sticking to the American Old West. We had a lot of trouble coordinating our schedule, which resulted in us releasing separate collections of western romances, mine being Satin Boots. We still intend to collaborate on another project.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. No question about that. Fantasy follows close behind. However, I also enjoy reading mysteries (Robert B. Parker and Dick Francis are old favorites), too.

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

I have to admit to an enduring fondness for Spenser, created by Robert B. Parker. He’s so self-contained and confident in what he can (and can’t) do and what he knows (and doesn’t know) that I envy him. I enjoy the wry humor, too.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a contemporary/new adult/biker romance that takes place in northern Ohio. Two disparate worlds collide when a country girl crashes into a biker rally in pursuit of the biker who shoots and kills her sister’s 4-H steer. The hero is a war veteran, a former Marine who lives the motorcycle club (MC) lifestyle because he needs the organizational structure and freedom of the open road. I haven’t quite figured out how they’re going to reconcile their differences in such a manner that doesn’t require either of them giving up everything to conform to the other’s lifestyle. That should be interesting.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I started on another paranormal romance which may very well be a fifth book in the Immortal Shifters series. The hero is a dragon shifter and I think I’m going to make the heroine sidhe. I also have over two dozen more unfinished manuscripts to work on if nothing else grabs my attention.

Holly Bargo never outgrew a love of fairy tales, legends, and myths. Or horses. However, one foot must remain firmly planted in the real world which is where Holly makes her living as a freelance writer and editor. She and her husband have two grown children and live on a southwest Ohio hobby farm with a menagerie indoor and outdoor animals.
When she’s not working on other people’s documents or reading, Holly finds time to transfer the voices in her head to paper … er … computer. If she doesn’t, there’s a definite possibility her mind will explode.
And for those who might wonder from where the pseudonym of Holly Bargo came, it’s quite simple really. Horses. Namely an elegant and temperamental Appaloosa mare who has long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is fondly remembered for guarding toddler children and crushing a brand new pager.
But that’s another story.
