As a lover of romance and happy endings, I’m excited to be starting off a new year with a Happily Ever After. My little brother is tying the knot this Saturday! This is a big deal. For one, it’s taken him 44 years to find his true love. He’s never been married before and has waited a long time to find the right woman. After meeting his intended over Thanksgiving, big sister has given her stamp of approval. His bride is a lovely lady with a wonderful personality and two charming daughters that are going to fill my bachelor brother’s life with so much joy. Just imaging him in a house with three girls makes me giggle. He’s going to be such a softie.
We are traveling down to Austin this weekend for the wedding. The weather has been icy and cold, so we’re praying that the roads will be in good shape, but thankfully we’re traveling south, so hopefully everything will be fine.
And if that’s not enough romance to get your heart pumping, I also have a brand new release out this week. Hearts Entwined is a novella collection containing romance, humor, and plenty of heart.
Hearts Entwined is a fun novella anthology that I had the honor of working on with some great author friends—Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings, and Melissa Jagears. The four stories are loosely connected by the theme of how love can tie you up in knots. We had fun with the titles. My story is The Love Knot. Mary’s is The Tangled Ties That Bind. Regina has Bound and Determined, and Melissa has Tied and True.
The Love Knot is the final story in the Ladies of Harper’s Station series. It stands alone, so you don’t need to have read the other stories in order to enjoy this one, but for those who have been looking forward to Claire’s story and finally discovering what led her to become a runaway mail order bride in No Other Will Do, all is finally revealed.
Here is the blurb specifically pertaining to The Love Knot: Claire Nevin has identified herself in many ways during her brief eighteen years: Irish immigrant; professional embroiderer; jilted fiancé; runaway mail-order bride; and most recently, apprentice healer for the ladies of Harper’s Station. The one role she treasures above all, however, is sister. When her troubled younger sibling sends her an unexpected package by rail, the gift, and the man who delivers it, threaten to redefine her life once again. Fighting to hold on to all she has built, will she lose what matters most?
This week through Monday, January 8, we have a great contest going on for an autographed copy of Hearts Entwined that has been signed by all 4 authors. Hop over to our giveaway page to learn more and to enter for a chance to win!
