A Bluebonnet Misfit Christmas By Patricia PacJac Carroll

Come on in to the town of Bluebonnet, TX, where romance blooms with a little help from friends.

Nettie has matchmaking plans while her husband Reed already has his hands full with a troubled misfit named Yancy. Sally’s past haunts her with fears of having to go back to the saloon. Wilbur “Wills” Williams is coming to Bluebonnet to atone for his past. Amelia and Sheriff Justin Wellesley are in love, but her parents are against their marriage, while Yancy has other plans for Amelia. And Cornelia “Cornie” Eustus is intent on sharing her misery.

Whiter Than Snow By Leah Atwood

Tallie Duncan hasn’t known love since she was a young child, but a position as a nanny to two rambunctious boys fills a void left by a life of tragedy. When their mother discovers Tallie’s secret, though, her position is immediately terminated. She finds herself on the streets, in a strange town in a strange land.

Jeremiah Scott returns to Weatherton, Wyoming after a six-year absence, with plans to renew the family ranch he’d left after his father’s death. The train ride from Chicago to Cheyenne reminds him how lonely winters in the West can be without someone to share them. While in Cheyenne, making purchases for his ranch, he decides to find an impromptu bride. But when the bride is more than he bargains for, will his rash decision destroy their plans for marriage?

Hang Your Heart on Christmas By Heather Blanton

U.S. Marshal Robert “Dent” Hernandez has a gift, if you call specializing in death a gift. Under the auspices of his badge, he arrests some of the worst criminals Wyoming Territory can spit out. For Dent, though, the line between vengeance and justice has never been clear. He is determined to find and hang his father’s killer. When a prisoner transfer goes awry in his hometown of Evergreen, Wyoming, and Dent’s good friend is killed, he is forced to serve as interim sheriff. But Dent should be out on the trail hunting down murderers, not scolding candy thieves and escorting the very pretty, but jittery, schoolteacher around. What is she so afraid of? Turns out, a lot of people in Evergreen are keeping secrets.

Mail Order Bride: Husband of the Bride By Susette Williams

Widowed for years, Ma has been the matriarch of the family, facing the challenges of raising four boys into men. With the arrival of her first grandchild imminent, Ma finds herself face-to-face with the town doctor who has very differing views from hers.

Doc is opinionated, and believes it is time for Ma to look out for her own needs–and desires. He’s old enough to know you can’t live in the past; you need to move on to have a future. But can he convince a stubborn, determined woman he’s worth settling with? Will Ma be able to keep up with her four sons and their new brides and survive the holidays, or will her family grow even larger–in more ways than one?

A Mountain Man’s Redemption
By Christi Corbett

Eighteen years ago, Philip Grant–overcome with regret for what he couldn’t foresee and memories of what he couldn’t prevent–abandoned all to live the solitary life of a fur trapper. Years spent roaming Montana Territory left his body weary and his confidence weak. Hopeless, he decides to turn in his last bundle of furs and await the inevitable in a cabin. Alone.

Everything changes when he discovers a battered woman and her infant son, on the run from their ruthless abuser. Seventy miles of mountains and windswept flatlands stand between them and safety. Can Philip trust in his newfound faith to lead the way?

A Lady in Defiance BOOK #Giveaway #LadiesinDefiance

Love is in the air….. Defiance style!

A Lady in Defiance by Heather Blanton

…IT’S HIS TOWN AND HE DARES GOD TO STEP A FOOT IN IT.

Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a “nice” hotel, he is intrigued enough to let them stay…especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre. It would seem however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, “Why?” Does God really have a plan for each and every life?

Written with gritty, but not gratuitous, realism uncharacteristic of the historical Christian fiction genre, A Lady in Defiance gives a nod to both Pride and Prejudice and Redeeming Love. The story, based on true events, is an “ensemble” piece that deftly weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance.

The Giveaway

The giveaway of A Lady in Defiance is open internationally. The winner will have a choice of the Audible version of the book or an e-copy.  You are able to listen on your Kindle Fire or with the free Audible app on Apple, Android, and Windows devices to books. Enter through the Rafflecopter below:

Ann Leavitt Baker –The Pioneer Woman who Delivered

annbakerIn doing research for my blog, I stumbled across the writings of Alice Baker Kraft, daughter of Ann Leavitt Baker and one of eleven children. Ann was a tough, hard- working, resourceful woman. A wife and mother, she was also a midwife and doctor-of- sorts to folks on the remote Canadian prairie. I didn’t see any sense in reinventing the wheel when Alice’s writing is so full of fond and vivid memories, not to mention fascinating historical tidbits. The following is just a slice of a much longer piece. If you’d like to read more, the link is at the end.

“The Inscription on a plaque honoring Ann Eliza Leavitt Baker reads as follows:

In loving memory of Ann Eliza Baker, 9 Feb 1858 – 3 Jul 1933. A great humanitarian whose life of service for her fellow man has inspired and blessed many. She traveled these hills and valleys and nearby towns to deliver hundreds of babies and care for the sick. No storm was too severe to stop her. She walked, rode horseback, or went by wagon, and on many occasions, rode miles on a stone boat. She raised her own family of 11 children, and was the President of the local Relief Society for 26 years. Her long and loving devotion and service to humanity is unexcelled.

Presented by those who were first spanked by this gracious lady.”

Hearts in Defiance by Heather Blanton

MEN MAKE MISTAKES. GOD WILL FORGIVE THEM. WILL THEIR WOMEN?

Charles McIntyre built the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance practically with his bare hands … and without any remorse for the lives he destroyed along the way. Then a glimpse of true love, both earthly and heavenly, changed him. The question is, how much? Naomi Miller is a beautiful, decent woman. She says she loves McIntyre, that God does, too, and the past is behind them now. But McIntyre struggles to believe he’s worth saving … worth loving. Unfortunately, the temptations in Defiance only reinforce his doubts.

Billy Page abandoned Hannah Frink when he discovered she was going to have his baby … and now he can’t live with himself. Or without her. Determined to prove his love, he leaves his family and fortune behind and journeys to Defiance. Will Hannah take Billy back or give him what he deserves for the betrayal?

Gritty and realistic, this is the story of real life and real faith in Defiance.

The sequel to the highly acclaimed, best-selling western romance A Lady in Defiance!

Grace be a Lady by Heather Blanton

Act like a man … Think like a lady. 

Banished to the dusty cow town of Misery, WY for an alleged affair, Grace Hendrick wants nothing more than to get her son away from the clutches of his abusive father Bull. But if she dares return home to Chicago, Bull has promised to whisk their son out of the country and away from her for good. Furious, desperate, Grace decides to beat Bull at his own game, which means all bets are off … even her wedding vows?

Thad, the middle son of the oldest, most successful cattle baron in Wyoming, is busy building a ranch and his faith in God. One chance meeting with Grace, though, batters his focus–and his morals–like a hail storm in July. When Grace’s brother Greg is hired by a local widow, Thad figures the kid is the straightest path to Grace’s heart. What is he thinking, though, playing with fire … ? Isn’t he a better man that?

As friendship and love blossom, Grace and Thad will also discover truths that threaten the foundations of everything they believe. But the truth will set them free … won’t it?

In Time for Christmas by Heather Blanton

Charlene needs a miracle. God has one waiting…a hundred years in the past.

In Time for Christmas — a Novella, is the story of Charlene Williams, a woman trapped in a dangerously abusive marriage. Disappointed that God hasn’t gotten her out of it, or even hears her prayers at all, she has shut down emotionally. When husband Dale becomes suspicious of her daily chats with the mailman, he whisks her out-of-town and abandons her on his family’s ranch—an isolated, dilapidated place no one has lived on for over forty years. With the promise that he’ll be back in a few days, he knocks her unconscious and leaves.

Charlene wakes up on the ranch—a hundred years in the past. Almost instantly she is drawn to Billy Page, Dale’s great grandfather. The connection is powerful and mysterious, but should she risk falling in love with a ghost? What’s going on here? Is Charlene dead, dreaming, in a coma, or simply experiencing a gift from her heavenly father?

She’ll learn one thing for certain: God does see the tears of his children.

Grace be a Lady BOOK #GIVEAWAY #LadiesInDefiance

Happy New Year to all and blessings to you for a wonderful 2016!

I’m joining up with http://thekidsdidit.com & http://themommyisland.blogspot.com to offer another fun blog hop here at my site. There are LOTS of exciting items that you can WIN!

51-C2rK9M5L._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

Banished to the dusty cow town of Misery for an alleged affair, Grace Hendrick wants nothing more than to get her son away from the clutches of his abusive father Bull, back in Chicago. But if she dares to return home, Bull has promised Grace she’ll never see their son again. She has no choice but to accept her situation—temporarily. Struggling to figure a way to survive, Grace refuses to consider prostitution. The hamlet of Misery, however, isn’t brimming over with jobs for respectable women. Fueled by hate and desperation, she concocts a shocking plan to find work. After all, what does she have to lose?

Thad Walker is the middle son of the oldest, most successful cattle baron in Wyoming and he always puts the ranch first. One chance meeting with Grace Hendrick, though, batters his focus like a hail storm in July. When Grace’s brother Greg is hired by a local widow, Thad figures the kid is the straightest path to Grace’s heart. As friendship and love blossom, so do the lies, some in unexpected hearts. When deceit catches fire and threatens everything Grace and Thad hold dear, will love conquer all?

Set amidst the bloody Johnson County Range War of 1890’s Wyoming, Misery may well prove more explosive than the mean streets of Chicago … and Grace is right in the middle of the fight.
