This fall I am indeed fortunate because I have multiple releases. As an author, productivity is important. How else can an author hope readers will remember my name and look for my books? Readers are who keeps authors motivated to please. We court you and pray you'll buy and enjoy our books.

I don't write literary fiction. No angst-filled downers from the authors on this blog. I seek to entertain readers and to provide an escape from whatever problems devil readers. Books I write guarantee a happily-ever-after for everyone but the villain.

Please let me share another occasion with you. WILD WESTERN WOMEN, my latest release, is a boxed set with four other authors.  For this release, we have a gift card, free downloads, and several lovely pieces of jewelry. You can enter at the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post.

One of my giveaways--a black and silver-plated
Dreamcatcher "Power of Three" neclace and earrngs

The five novellas and two bonus short stories are:

USA Today Best Selling Author Callie Hutton – A CHANCE TO LOVE AGAIN
Widow Rachel Stevens is very happy with her job as a cook for the Lazy Sunset ranch where she is raising her son. However, the new foreman, Rusty McIntyre, is turning her life upside down. She could overlook how her son has begun to idolize Rusty, but she’s having a heck of a time ignoring the flutters in her stomach every time the man smiles at her.

But Rusty has problems of his own. His previously unknown fourteen year old daughter has just arrived to live with him. Used to always being on his own, now he has a young boy following him around imitating his every move, and a surly young lady glaring at him. Throw into the mix the tug he feels toward the ranch cook—who wants no part of him—and life is no longer as easy as it once was.

Best Selling Author Merry Farmer – THE INDOMITABLE EVE
The one thing Eve deLaurent has wished for in the two years since her sister, Amelia, was whisked away to America was to be a family again. But the tragedy that befell her once Amelia was gone has left her wounded, body and soul. Now, reunited with her sister, all Eve wants to do is run. Amelia’s new, happy life is a betrayal deeper than Eve can stand. She would leave and never look back, were it not for Mark Andrews.

As Cold Springs’s reverend, Mark is used to people confiding their darkest sins and looking to him for help. So when he sees the pain behind Eve’s mask of confidence, all he wants to do is help her. But Eve awakens a desire in him that reminds him that even a man of God is still a man. They seem to be everything the other wants and needs, but can the people of Cold Springs accept an actress in their pastor’s arms? Can they be together if bitter family betrayals keep Eve and Amelia at each other’s throats?

You’re only as strong as the loves that hold you together...
