Friends Write Books: Part 1

With all the craziness of moving, I've missed several new books by writing friends. Today, I've tried to remedy that by adding some books to my TBR pile.

For your consideration, here are a few new books by some really good authors.

Bluebonnet Bride, Men of Stone Mountain Book 3, by Caroline Clemmons is another winner for the western author.

He’s a by-the-book Texas sheriff; she’s on the run from a murder conviction. When they meet, instant attraction. What will he do to save her from the gallows?

Beyond the Bo Tree: Ten Tales of Romance by Jacqueline Seewald

Ten tales of romantic love -- not formula stories but unique male-female relationship with some sweet and others sensual. Some humorous; others serious. Some paranormal; others "real." All are entertaining with HEA endings.

Bride of the Shining Mountains (The St. Claire Men) by S.K. McClafferty is a Pygmalion tale that contains explicit language and sexual content.

Reagan Dawes had been brought against her will from the backwoods of Kentucky to the wilds of the Missouri Territory, where her step father Luther is determined to find her a husband. She intends to rebel at all costs. . . until she lays eyes on the Creole aristocrat. What woman wouldn’t desire the darkly handsome rake, Jackson Broussard?

Love, Honor, Cherish by Anne Marie Novark (Boxed Set) discounted for a limited time only at $2.99. Get three books for the price of one!

Three full-length stand-alone novels by Anne Marie Novark, author of The Diamondback Ranch Series. This boxed set includes: ADAM'S TEMPTATION, TEXAN UNDERCOVER, and MIDNIGHT MY LOVE. Three books, three romance genres. Love, Honor, Cherish ... and Happily-Ever-After.

A Child's Heart (Trent & Cassie's Story: A River City Novel) by E. Ayers is finally here.

When Trent Callahan brings his dinosaur-loving son to the River City Museum, Cassie Jones, curator of the museum, falls head-over-heels in love with the boy and his father. But Cassie's love drags Trent deep into her tangled web of city politics, drives a wedge between him and his mom, and shows him that history is far from boring and dreams are worth chasing.

The glue that holds this series together is the city. River City is a fictional mid-sized city in the mid-Atlantic area of the USA. Many of the characters know each other or are loosely connected. Join the fun and meet these young people as they work their way through today's problems and find their true love.

Reclaim My Heart by Donna Fasano is proclaimed by BigAl at as, "Fasano's best book yet."

Sixteen years ago, Tyne Whitlock cut all ties to her past and left town under the shameful shadow of a teenage pregnancy. Now her fifteen-year-old son is in trouble with the law and she is desperate for help. But reaching out to high-powered attorney Lucas Silver Hawk will tear open the heart-wrenching past in ways Tyne never imagined.

Takeaway Truth

So many books; so little time. *sigh*


  1. I'm thrilled to be in your TBR pile. When the craziness settles down and you're ready to catch your breath with a book, I know Cassie and Trent will warm your heart.

  2. Hi Joan, I certainly agree with what you said about E. Ayers' books. I haven't read "A Child's Heart" yet but let me recommend "A Calling in Wyoming."

  3. Thanks for the shout-out, Joan!!! Much appreciated.

    Good luck with the move!!!

    Anne Marie :)

  4. I'll be glad when the move is over, and I have time to read all these wonderful books!

  5. Joan, thanks for mentioning my BLUEBONNET BRIDE. I loved writing that book.

  6. Caroline Clemmons ... Hey, we Texas chicks must support each other! Anything with bluebonnet in the title should fly off the cyber shelves.

  7. I'm a bit late (as usual), Joan, but I'm happy to join this party! I've blogged about it here:

  8. Donna Fasano ... Better late than never. You're welcome to the party any time. Thanks for blogging about it.

  9. What a nice thing to do, Joan, so thoughtful. Good luck with the move. They are always hectic and exhausting.

  10. Lyndi Lamont ... Thanks! Yes, moving is hectic and exhausting. This is my final week in my lovely home -- or what was once my lovely home. *g* Now it's just a maze of packing boxes.
