A Wonderful Holiday Read!

Debut author Camille Eide has stormed the book world with a witty tale of holiday love and forgiveness. Savanna Holt must return to the resort where years before she fell in love with handsome ski instructor Luke Nelson. Luke Nelson, whom she adored. Who could send her heart to racing but whose own heart she broke. Desperate to escape her past by climbing to the top of her game, Savanna leaves Luke and the Evergreen Ridge Resort to find her fortune and fame in the medical world. Now years later she's returned to the place that still holds her heart and the man whom she discovers holds it just as tightly. But what to do? Luke sees her as nothing but a success seeking diva. Someone who years before left him because his care free lifestyle as a mere ski instructor wasn't good enough, sophisticated enough for her. But sometimes God sees fit to arrange circumstances to fit His purposes. And a raging snow storm does just that. Being stuck together at Evergreen Ridge brings back memories and deep feelings in both Savanna and Luke. Will they listen to their hearts and let forgiveness heal a broken love that seems beyond repair? Or will they harbor the pain of the past? Find out in this heartwarming holiday tale! You'll be glad you did. Oh, and better have a cup of tea and some Christmas cookies handy. Camille paints a wonderfully, festive, Christmas picture! I actually had to go out and get some tea and cookies about half way through the story!

A Light In the Window Will Light Your Heart

Julie Lessman has done it again! Having read the Daughters of Boston series, this long awaited prequel will delight and warm the wintery heart. (Not to mention any other season your heart might be in!) For those of us who fell in love with Ms. Lessman's writing with 'A Passion Most Pure' , she holds true to her penchant for creating characters of warmth, heart, and dare I say "guts" that drive the story. Marcy Murphy and her best friend Julie (affectionately known as Jewels) are childhood friends reunited due to the financial crisis of the Railroads during the mid 1890's. Julie's brother Sam and his best friend Patrick are roguish gents whose flirtatious dallying with every girl they run into gives pause to enamored Marcy and Julie. That is until Marcy and Julie volunteer to help with a fundraiser to support St. Mary's Parrish soup kitchen. Thrown together to work on a play entitled "The Light In the Window", Marcy soon finds herself the object of affection of not one, but both of our handsome Irish rogues. But our boys don't exactly fit her idea of a Godly man and having both out to win her sends poor Marcy into a tailspin of emotions. Our gents do figure out a way to make sure their friendship stays intact and who will win the right to pursue our heroine. (Not saying anymore on that one! You'll have to read it to find out!). You'll laugh, you may even cry, but one things for sure, you'll not only fall in love with the characters, but 'see' how God's redemptive love works. I must say, Julie Lessman does have a unique knack for taking her characters from crisscrossed relationships, messed up lives and attitudes not to mention broken hearts, introduce a strong faith and God into the mix, and then masterfully have everything workout. By the time you get to the end of the book, you realize, "Wow! Only God could have done something like that!" And so He does. This is a good book of Julie's to start with for those of whom this is your first Lessman book. Trust me, you'll be hooked!

"Vanquish fear and panic. Value living. Remember your goal: Getting out alive." U.S. Army Ranger Handbook
Start a book out with a quote like that and you are going to have my attention. As an action/adventure reader and writer, I crave the thrill of the cliff hanger, the constant tension on each and every page that asks the inevitable question "What happens next?!" With Agartha's Castaway, (Book One of the Trapped in the Hollow Earth Novelette Series), you get to ask with not just the action, but a few other things as well. Here we have three friends, Mike - the flirty, care free surfer star. Jack - the hunky egghead. And Casey, the adventurous girl who has had a crush on Mike since, like, forever. While on vacation and fishing together the three are plunged (as in literally, they wind up in the drink) via an out of this world storm, into an incredible adventure. Lost at sea and now stranded on an island that's more than just "Way off the map," the trio tries their best to not only find their way off the island, but not lose their lives in the process. But that's just the adventure part. If you remember being a teenager, there are some things that are a constant. And a crush is one of them. Through strange storms, ship wreck, weird caves, sharks, and dare I add, really BIG spiders, (shivers, dreamed about spiders for days!) the life pulse of young love is hard to kill. Chrissy Peebles captures the essence of young love and mixes it with an adventure that keeps you turning the pages. You begin to see things going on within the trios relationships with each other, and have to wonder, hmmm ... just where might this be going? And I'm sure we'll all get to find out, so long as our heroes can all stay alive long enough. The best part of this wonderful action packed novelette? The price. It's free! Get a copy and enjoy!

Pick up Book Two and with our three young heroes, continue the adventure.

Fun, Sexy, Read!
If you are looking for a fun, sexy, weekend read, or any day for that matter, then you'll love Taken By The Cowboy. Julianne MacLean has penned another fun historical romp this time via an unwitting, time traveling spitfire whose entire world turns upside down when she lands herself in the 1880's old west. And the old west is not the only place our heroine Jessica Delaney lands as she soon finds herself gracing a cell in the town jail. And all because of a pesky June bug she swatted at, (who wouldn't? Have you ever seen the size of one of those things?) one dead gunslinger, (who had nothing to do with the June bug as he was already dead) and an incredibly sexy Sheriff. (Who managed to make full use of the June bug in a nickname for said heroine.) And who knew how much trouble a little, (well, maybe not little) June bug could cause? Her life constantly in the balance, "June Bug Jess" as she's come to be known, tries desperately to find her way not only out of jail, but back to the 21st century. But Sheriff Truman Wade has other ideas. Keeping her alive for one as threats to her life continue to grow. But protecting June Bug Jess becomes problematic when Sheriff Wade realizes she's not the only thing he needs to protect. His heart's in as much danger from her as she is from the blood thirsty outlaws trying to kill her. Saddle up and find out what happens when you too, 'Get Taken by the Cowboy'. You'll be glad you did. You can purchase Taken by the Cowboy at amazon and Barnes and Nobles.
