A BRIDE FOR LUKE IS RELEASED!


 Today is the day A BRIDE FOR LUKE, Proxy Bride Series Book 36, is released for your reading pleasure. Beta reports on this book were very good. Although writing IS hard work, I enjoyed writing this book. I love anything Irish and the heroine is from Ireland. So is the hero, Luke, but he's been in the United States longer. The heroine, Maeve, has only been in the U.S. for a few months.

One person who comments will win a $10 Amazon gift card. 
Remember to include your email in your comment!



The universal Amazon link is http://mybook.to/Maeve
A BRIDE FOR LUKE is available in e-book and print and is free in KU.

The blurb:

Each is struggling to build a better life . . .
Two strong-willed people are bound to clash . . .
Danger forces them to focus on what is at stake . . .

Maeve Kelly came to America for a better life but found only signs that said No Irish Need Apply. When the cousin with whom she is staying leaves Boston, Maeve is left desperate. Her job at the laundry doesn’t pay enough for her to survive alone. Her friend suggests a way out, Maeve resists a proxy marriage but finally accepts. What else can she do?

Sheriff Luke Sullivan is proud of his accomplishments. Known for his strong principles, he is admired and well-respected in the community. When he learns his mother and aunt have schemed to get him a proxy bride he’s furious. If he’d wanted a wife he would have found one. He respects and loves his mother and finally agrees to the marriage. Before he and his bride can adjust to one another, Luke is caught in the middle of an explosive situation between striking miners and the railroad. 

Threats against Luke by each side have him fearing for the safety of his wife, mother, and aunt. He must resolve the strike to protect his family and many others. Will he succeed in time to save lives?


Excerpt:

He pushed back from the table. “How can I keep you safe if you don’t follow orders? Do you understand?”
She put her hands on her hips. “Oh, so it’s orders you’re giving me, is it? Weel, Lucas Brady Sullivan, I take orders from no man. Do you understand?”
“Mae, you’re making something from nothing.” He tapped his chest. “I’m your husband. You promised to obey me when we wed.”
That brought her temper down a notch. She had promised and Father Patrick had lectured her on the husband being the head of the household. “Mayhap I did, but not high handed orders.”
“And what would you consider obeying? You want a written invitation to remain home? Shall I show you the other wanted poster and suggest you avoid that man? You’ve no idea what these other men look like so how would you know if they were walking down the street or shopping in the Mercantile? How can you know who’s an upstanding citizen and who’s a stranger in town? You were in front of the Mercantile when Higgins accosted you.”  
She turned toward the sink, hands on her face to hide her shame. “Aye, ‘tis sorry I am. The worry of what’s going to happen has me in bits. I can’t get out of my mind the fact someone may shoot at you from an ambush.”
He wrapped his arms around her. “Don’t fret, honey. I’m doing my best to keep this situation from becoming violent. I can’t focus on my job if I’m worried about where you are and what you’re doing and who’s around you.”
She leaned her head against his broad chest. His strong heartbeat reassured her. “I see the way I was wrong. ‘Twas my mistake and ‘tis sorry I am.”
She looked up at him. “But, for us to have a peaceful marriage you’d best consider making requests instead of giving orders.”

 I hope you'll give A BRIDE FOR LUKE a try and that you love it. Don't forget to leave a comment to be in the drawing! Please include your email in your comment.

DOUBLE POST - WESTERN WISHES AND MIDNIGHT SONS


Don't miss the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the post!

Western Wishes
By
Susan Horsnell
Sweet/Christian Western
Date Published: 2 February 2020

Abigail Miller helps run her mother’s diner in the town of Hopeful, Colorado.

How could any man possibly be interested in her when she considers herself too tall, too plain and not curvy enough? Ahead of curls which refuse to be tamed also don’t help.

Working from sun up to sundown, with the exception of Sunday mornings off to attend church, doesn’t leave much time for courting, so she is resigned to her fate of being left a spinster.

Will a wish made at the town well during a full moon ever be answered?

Max Long is the eldest son of a well-respected ranching family. His sister is Abigail’s best friend and also a friend to both him and his brother. He’d never thought of the tall, beautiful lady in that way.

Overhearing a conversation, he wonders if his feelings for Abigail could run deeper than mere friendship?

How will Max react when Abigail’s life is in danger?

Can the wishing well work its magic and bring her home safely?

Will a wish made at the town well during a full moon ever be answered?



My eyes were drawn to the sway of her shapely hips as Abigail stomped off to the kitchen. I wondered what I’d said to upset her; there was no doubt that I had. I’d known the woman long enough to know when she was unhappy about something. The change in her eyes when I’d mentioned Mildred had been noticeable – at least to me. Anger and jealousy had both clouded her gorgeous amber orbs. But why?

Abigail and I had known each other since she’d started school, her and Rowan had become instant friends and spent most of their free time together. The two girls had been stuck to each other like bees to molasses and were always under my feet out at the ranch. It saddened me to watch as their friendship became distanced through no fault of their own.

Since Abigail’s father had died, her visits to the ranch had come to a stop. Every waking hour seemed to be spent helping her mother in the diner and she was left with no time for social activities. I understood the fact she was needed by her mother, but it saddened me just the same. A young woman as beautiful as Abigail should have been out enjoying herself, stepping out with a beau. Heck, she should have been hitched with little ones by now as I’d told her.

Why did the thought of Abigail being with a man send bolts of jealousy raging through me? I had no interest in anything other than friendship with her. Or did I? I swear the woman tied my thinking in knots.

Saturday nights, when I had supper at the diner and at church on Sundays were the only times we managed to speak a few words to each other and I hated the thought I might have upset her. I resolved to take her aside at church the following day and find out what it was I’d said wrong.


Interview with Susan Horsnell

Please tell us about growing up. Siblings? Locale?

 I grew up on the Northern Beaches area of Sydney NSW Australia. I am the eldest and have a brother a little less than 2 years younger and a sister 15 years younger than me.
I was first put on stage at 2 years old and from there, progressed to pantomimes, club performances and a weekly television show. My talent was tap dance, clog and song and dance but I did also perform ballet and at the age of 12 was selected to join the Australian Ballet Junior Program. I stayed until I was accepted into nursing 2 months before my 16th birthday. Although I enjoyed dance and competitions, I did not like the pressure to achieve which was placed on me.
At school I was an A level student and excelled in English and History. I participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, obtaining Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. It was through the voluntary aspect of this which led me into Nursing. I volunteered at the local hospital in CSSD (Central Sterilising) and helping the ‘Pink Ladies.’ Interacting with patients became a passion and there was no doubt about what I was meant to do.

For the years of my training, I resided in the nurse’s quarters within the hospital grounds. This was compulsory for 1st year nurses and I chose to stay on. I was hospital based trained not academic trained.

I was a nurse for 37 years before retiring - primarily Theatre (operating room), ER and Gerantology. My husband is a Commodore (Rear Admiral for US peeps) in the RAN so we have pretty much lived everywhere in Australia and had a posting to Papua New Guinea for 3 1/2 years. Because of our constant moving - 28 moves in 40 years, I picked up nursing work in various areas including working with the newly blinded and their families to teach them techniques to live their lives. Most of my stories are from personal experience.

Were you the shy kid or the tomboy?

Tomboy, not a shy bone in my body.

Married, single? Children? 

The Horsnells
Hubby and I married at 18 years old and are coming up to 46 years married. We have 2 sons - eldest is 44. an Architectural Engineer and CEO of a company in Sydney where he lives with his wife of 21 years and their children - girls 18 and 13 and a boy 10. Youngest son is 40, an Environmental Scientist with his own company and he lives with his wife of 15 years in Melbourne. They have a girl aged 13 and boy aged 10. Our 18 year old granddaughter has just been accepted into University to study a Science Degree and Veterinary Science Degree – she is on the way to realising her dream of becoming a Vet.

When you’re not writing, what’s your favorite way to relax and recharge?

Reading and travel

How long have you been writing?

I have always penned made up stories but began publishing in 2013

Where do you prefer to write? Do you need quiet, music, solitude? PC or laptop?

I hand write all my stories before typing on either a laptop or desktop. I sit out in the living room with hubby, he watches television while I work. I have the uncanny ability to shut out all noise.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Pantser

Tell us about your writing schedule. Do you set goals? Do you write daily?

Writing for me is a passion, not something I have to do like a job. I usually write every day but don’t set word goals or publishing goals. My stories are as long as they need to be and I publish once they are properly polished.

Tell us something about yourself that might surprise readers.

I did a pantomime with Mae West

What advice would you give to unpublished authors?

The same as I give our grandchildren. Follow your heart and your dreams regardless of what anyone says.

What has helped you in your writing career?

I have a couple of authors I am very close to and they have helped me a great deal. I also have a line editor – Robyn Corcoran and Proofreader – Leanne Rogers who are also very close friends. I have no idea what I would do without these two ladies. My success is very much theirs also.

What do you hope your writing brings to readers?

Variety. I write so many different romance sub-genres – Sweet Western, Steamy Western, Contemporary, M/M, Outback Australian, City Australian, MMF and I even have a shapeshifter. I use my experiences in each of my books. I truly hope readers can lose themselves in my stories and be captivated by the words.

About the Author

Susan Horsnell, Author
I live in sunny Queensland, Australia and retired after 37 years of Nursing.

My husband of 45 years, together with our elderly Jack Russell Terrier and extremely opinionated 26-year-old Cockatiel, enjoy exploring the country.

When we are at home, we spend our time renovating our home.

I write a variety of stories including Western Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Male/Male, Menage and Shapeshifter.

Each book has a strong focus on storyline with romantic interest building throughout.

I explore real-life issues from kids on the streets to motorcycle wars and put my own twist on each one.

Sam's Folly 
Midnight Sons Book 1 
by
Carmen DeSousa 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 


When a bigwig fight promoter needs someone to search for his missing fiancĂ©e, he hires expert tracker Sam Belgarde and his search dogs. Sam is more than a little reluctant. His family’s company, Search and Rescue Alaska, is in financial trouble, though, so if searching for a spoiled socialite will save it, then he’s willing to break the rules—just this once.
After witnessing a murder, Nora Molina needs to get away—fast—and her best hope to escape without her passport is Alaska. A native of Argentina, Nora’s accustomed to harsh winters and high elevation, so she gets more than a little irritated when some tracker thinks she needs rescuing. Even if he is get-out sexy. And even if he’s the guy she stood up before leaving town. It’s going to be a long few days.

When an unexpected storm rolls in, Sam and Nora find themselves in each other’s arms—to keep warm. Things get a little too hot when it’s clear someone wants the two of them to stay lost—permanently.

Alex's Atonement 
Midnight Sons Book 2 


Alex Belgarde has carried the culpability of his father’s death for more than ten years. Every year, as his family’s company falls deeper into debt, the guilt eats away more of his soul until there’s only one answer. Prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his father’s legacy, Alex takes off on a frigid winter day with no radio and very little fuel in his seaplane. He’s using up the last of his reserve tank, preparing to drop from the sky, when he sees plane wreckage below.
Irene Rose has spent her life chasing her dream. But after a possible terminal diagnosis, she realizes how lonely her life has become and is ready to forgive her sister and beg for her family’s forgiveness. Instead of arriving on the island of her birth, Irene finds herself stranded in the Alaskan wilderness. Unbeknownst to her, the pilot for the plane she chartered was a drug runner, so he didn’t alert authorities as they crashed.

While Alex’s illogical idea to save his father’s company is thwarted because of his obligation to help others, he finds purpose in offering aid to the beautiful and intelligent Irene. The attraction is mutual until Irene persuades Alex to tell her the real reason he can’t simply fly them to safety or call for help. Now the two castaways will have to fight the harsh winter elements, as well as the drug smugglers who lost their cargo in the wreck, if they want to make it home alive. Not easy tasks when Irene refuses to trust Alex to get her home safely. She simply can’t get over the fact that as talented, tough, and tantalizing as he is that he was going to throw his life away when hers will probably be cut short. For the first time in his life, Alex will have to face his demons instead of running from them in order to win the girl and prove to himself that he’s a real hero.

Vince's Chance 
Midnight Sons Book 3 


Vince Kolya inherited only one trait from his biological father: a need to be on the sea. The rest of his life he has tried to emulate what he learned from his unofficial adopted family, the Belgardes: dedicating his life to helping others instead of abusing them. Unfortunately, he’s yet to find a woman who wants the same things he does in life. It’s bad enough that his wife left him, but she also failed to make his boat payments while he was on a three-month stint. Giving up on relationships, Vince throws himself into working with his family’s search & rescue team. Highest on his to-do list, though, is saving money to buy another boat so he can get back on the water, away from the reminders of his abusive past.

Now that her father is dead and buried, Valery Yura is coming home to her beloved state of Alaska in hopes that moving her troubled son to the place where she grew up will transform him into the loving young man he once was. The last thing she needs is a distraction, especially when it comes in the form of the gorgeous man she’s loved her entire life—Vince. A few too many drinks and sexy dancing on the dock, and she’s repeating ancient history, a situation she can’t allow, so she runs from his bed. When her son goes missing after a fishing excursion, Valery feels that the authorities aren’t doing everything possible. Although she’s resigned herself to never seeing Vince again, she needs his help.

As much as Vince tries to hold onto his feelings of anger and abandonment, knowing it’s paramount to protecting his heart, he finds himself falling deeper and deeper for Valery as they search for her lost son. The only way to win her love is to be her hero and find her son, but that hope fades when the authorities call off the search. Determined to give Valery closure and win back her heart, Vince embarks on an all-out manhunt for the missing boy. What he discovers, though, might be a death warrant for him and the woman he can’t lose again.

Carmen DeSousa, Author
Carmen DeSousa's stories overflow with romance, suspense, a hint of humor and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual but not erotic, gripping but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although some of her books include supernatural or ghostly beings, her stories dance on the edge of make believe. 

As most authors, Carmen blames her leap into a full-time career as a professional writer on her love of reading. She states that reading has always been an escape for her. When life was rough as a child, she could always disappear into a book. But she found something else too... She discovered that writing out her thoughts was therapeutic. Not only could she create hope for her protagonists, but she could also do away with her antagonists--legally. 

Carmen currently lives in "The Heart of Arizona" with her husband of twenty-nine years and a very spoiled "rescued" calico they lovingly refer to as "Baby Kitty," even though she's twelve years old. Carmen and her husband love to experience different areas, so they move a lot. They've lived on both of Florida's coasts: Cocoa Beach and Tampa Bay; Charlotte, North Carolina; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Bullhead City, Arizona, the Northern Central Valley of California, and now Arizona's high desert. They're always looking for their next adventure, so they travel every chance they get. If you've read about a place in one of Carmen's stories, she's been there! 

Most of her novels share her favorite hobbies, mostly, anything to do with the great outdoors. Both Carmen and her husband not only write, but also love to read outside--or a coffee shop if it's raining. And if the weather is really nice, they enjoy kayaking and hiking. Carmen says they rarely spend their days off at a movie theater or the mall. In fact, she hates shopping, and her husband would rather do anything than take her to a movie when she's already read the book.

Keeping Secrets 
Children of the Light Series Book 1 
by
Donna Hechler Porter 
Genre: Historical Romance 


A woman with a past, a man determined to uncover the truth, and a secret that could tear them apart forever.

A Grieving Husband: Amon Cayle needs a seamstress. He has spent the last year rebuilding his life after the tragic death of his wife in a kitchen fire, the same fire that nearly took the life of his eldest son as well. The business of grieving their loss, as well as the work of his tobacco plantation, has caused him to neglect the simplest of tasks. His family now needs clothes and despite his dislike for Mary McKechnie, and their shared past, he offers her the job.

A Desperate Mother: Mary McKechnie needs a job. Her brother has threatened to take her daughters and place them into indentured service if she can’t provide for them. He hasn’t made it any easier by insisting she work only for fellow Friends. When Amon Cayle offers her a job, she has little choice but to accept.

A Devastating Secret: The last time Amon spoke with Mary, after she walked away from him into the arms of another man over twenty years ago, she assured him she was not keeping secrets. He didn’t believe her then, and he doesn’t believe her now. While she is working for him, he is determined to find answers. She is just as determined to not give them.

Will Mary be able to save Amon from the past? Or will his love threaten to destroy them both?

Keeping Secrets is the first book in the Children of the Light Series. The Society of Friends (Quakers) and 1750s colonial Virginia, on the cusp of the French and Indian War, provide the backdrop for this sweeping historical about families trying to live their faith in a new land. Fans of series books will enjoy this series of faith, love, and redemption.

“I do not do business with outsiders.”
He let go of her arm as if he had been stung. “I am not an outsider.”
“I cannot do business with wayward Friends either.”
“Oh.” He drew the word out. “How strange. I do not feel lost.”
She reddened.
“Sister Mary, do you know what it cost me, personally, to come and ask thee to do them?”
Her throat tightened. What it cost him? Did he ever think of the humiliation it had cost her to listen to him request her to be a seamstress for his family?
Every time I see thee, it costs a part of me.
“’Tis just a job. You can find someone else.”
The deep furrow next to the man’s mouth twitched. He yanked the hat from his head. His fingers bent the straw to his will. The crunch grated into her ears.
“I will start cutting tobacco next week. I have to start work on the kitchen soon. I do not have time to find another seamstress. Surely we can work out something.”
“I do not think so.”
“I am seeking restitution. It will be handled at the next monthly meeting.”
“Is your daughter?”
“No, she is not.” His chiseled chin jutted forward. “If you will not work for her, will you at least do the work for the rest of us?”
“No. I think it would be best if you found someone else.”
“I have not the time.”
“Abigail has been gone for almost a year. You are the one who has not hired a seamstress.”
“I have been busy.”
“’Twas not busy. ‘Twas neglectful.”
“You can talk to me about neglect when your wife dies.”
Mary’s eyes widened.
“I mean husband,” he quipped.
It took him a minute to realize his mistake. Then, his face reddened.
He shot her a shy smile. Their eyes locked. Her heart slammed against her throat.
“Please, Mary. I need a seamstress, and I know you need the work.”
He had dropped the formal address of Sister. That, combined with the smile, was shattering. She lowered her gaze. The dark curly chest hair waved at her from between the folds of the loosened cravat.
That was no better. She took in a deep breath to still her nerves. “I would very much like to, but I just cannot.” She spun around before he could launch another protest.
She would have done almost anything at that moment to see that smile on a regular basis. But, she could not lose her girls.
And it should have been of little consequence other than the loss of the money. It was just a job she could not do. Amon Cayle was simply an employer she could not work for.
So why did she feel as if a piece of her heart had been cut out?

A Devoted Son
David Cayle, back from a tour of duty with the Virginia militia, is determined to mend the breach he created his with father. Taking the man into the backcountry to rescue his wayward sister, however, was not what he had in mind.
