The blog was a bit quiet this week, but my life has been anything but! I'm home in LA for a visit and taking care of business part of which is preparing for a month-long blog tour with The Visionary - speaking of which, I received the FINAL proof of the full cover! I'll share it with you once approved & corrected (if necessary) and More details on that tour to come!
Anyway, since there are no new releases from Pelican Book Group (aka: White Rose Publishing & HarborLight Books) so I thought I'd spotlight my 4-part Tempered series for all of my new friends.
Set in the beautiful hill country of Texas in Bandera, the "Cowboy Capital of the World," Tempered Hearts begins the series. This book was initially published in December of 2000 by Writers Exchange Epublishing.
Rancher Craig Harris and veterinarian Tamera Collins clash from the moment they meet. Innocence is pitted against arrogance as tempers rise and passions ignite to form a love as pure as the finest gold, fresh from the crucible and as strong as steel. Thrown together amid tragedy and unsated passion, Tamera and Craig share a strong attraction that neither accepts as the first stages of love. Torn between desire and dislike, they must make peace with their pasts and God in order to open up to the love blossoming between them. It is a love that nothing can destroy when they come to understand that only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life.
June 2001 saw the release of book 2 - Tempered Dreams.
Dr. Scott Hensley (introduced in Tempered Hearts) has built a wall around his heart since the death of his wife and parents. Katrina Simmons is recovering from scars inflicted on her as a battered wife. Can dreams be renewed and faith strengthened? Can they find joy and peace in God’s love and in love for one another? Since that time, mistakes were made and dreams shattered, but we perservered through the fire to find joy and now the entire Tempered Series is available on Kindle & Nook for only $1.99 each!
Amber Harris is a good girl on the brink of womanhood. Stanley Morrison is a young man at the start of his life. For each other, they have always felt the fireworks that two people in love should feel. But the questions about his past, his pride, and Amber's father might be the end of what could be a strong relationship. As the two try to protect their budding romance, some unlikely but powerful forces conspire to keep them apart. Will they survive the wishes of everyone around them with their relationship intact?
All around rodeo cowboy and heir to the Rockin’ H Ranch, Ace Harris is determined not to fall in love. He’s only loved one woman in his life, his mother, and no one can even come close to filling her boots. Lexie Morgan thinks rodeo cowboys have rocks for brains and a death wish for a soul. A broken childhood and the death of her father and best friend leave her doubting and questioning God (despite her years of religious upbringing) and afraid of love. Can two young people who clash from the onset learn to trust in the healing power of God and find love and happiness amidst tragedy and grief?
Well friends, hope you enjoyed this spotlight. I'll spotlight my other titles as time and space allow.
IMW.....Take care, God Bless and Remember.....God brings you full circle~Bandera, TX touched my heart as a child & changed my life as an adult.
