Genre: Fiction, Historical Fiction
Pub Date: 12/19/17
 
In turn-of-the-century Florida, a
family comes of age, and a daughter finds her destiny entwined with a
land as full of promise as it is danger.
 
The steamy, sweltering banks of
Florida’s Ocklawaha River don’t look much like Glory Land to
young Eve Stewart, despite her father’s proclamation. But it’s
here that Eve, her three siblings, and their parents will settle in
July, 1875. Within a few years, Eve’s father, Hap, has made good on
his assurances. They have a large, weathered clapboard house and a
comfortable life, thanks to Hap’s job on a steamboat.
Eve and her twin sister, Ivy, are
blossoming into young women. Yet as Ivy grows more involved in
medicine making under the tutelage of a neighboring black woman, her
path leads away from the family.
Eve, an aspiring writer, loves her
home though she longs to see the wider world beyond its swamps and
shores. But when she discovers a secret Ivy’s been keeping, Eve
must decide between protecting the family name or saving her sister.
With the help of a half-Creek Indian tracker, Max Harjo, Eve sets out
to find Ivy, beginning a journey that will dare her to follow her
ambitions and her passion wherever they lead.

Cover Reveal – White Water Passion by Dawn Luedecke @d_luedecke @SDSXXTours

 
White Water Passion
by Dawn Luedecke
Genre: Historical Romance, Western
 
The Montana Territory is one of the last outposts of the American
West—where adventure as grand as the wide-open plains is around
every corner, and passion as wild as the land itself beats in every
heart . . .
Elizabeth Sanders isn’t afraid of anything, except what will happen to her
beloved town if the Big Mountain Lumber Mill is destroyed. When she
overhears a plot to do just that, she vows to put a stop to it, even
if it means dressing as a young lumberjack to expose the saboteur.
There’s only one problem with her plan—her brother’s handsome
friend and fellow logger Garrett Jones, who arouses a desire within
her soul as fierce as the river rapids.
When Garrett discovers that the odd new lad on the crew is in fact Beth,
he’s shocked. A logging camp is no place for a young
woman—especially the spirited beauty he’s admired for so long.
Keeping her safe is easier said than done, however, as the attraction
between them flares into true passion. As the danger mounts, Beth and
Garrett must work together to survive the last log run down the wild
rapids and claim any chance of saving the mill—and their chance at
a future . . .

Cover Reveal – Redeeming Lord Ryder by Maggie Robinson @MaggieLRobinson @SilverDaggerSxx

 
Redeeming Lord Ryder
Cotswold Confidential #3
by Maggie Robinson
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: November 21, 2017
 
A Maggie Robinson book is like the best kind of chocolate: delicious
and totally addictive!” —Vanessa Kelly, USA
Today
bestselling author
Return to the scandalous secrets of the English countryside’s renowned
getaway for R&R—restoration and romance—in this delightful
series from Maggie Robinson!
After two months of treatment at Puddling-on-the-Wold, Mary Nicola Mayfield
has shown no improvement, and her condition seems impervious to
rehab. But Nicola is not the typical guest of Gloucestershire’s
destination village for the wealthy and wayward. The trauma of
surviving a horrific train wreck has rendered her mute; her injuries
have healed, but try as she might, she cannot utter a sound. With her
family and fiancé at their wits’ end, Nicola knows Puddling is the
resort—the last resort—that holds any hope for her recovery.
Lord Jack Ryder—baron, businessman and, some say, mad genius—has gone
from the heights of success to hit rock bottom, after a faulty girder
from his iron foundry caused a dreadful bridge collapse. Nothing has
assuaged his guilt over the passenger train that crashed or the lives
that were destroyed. The stringent regimen at Puddling is not doing
much for his deep depression—until he meets his mysteriously silent
neighbor. Their fiery affair breaks all the rules, but will the
unspoken truth be too hot to handle?
 
 
Maggie Robinson didn’t know she wanted to write until she woke up in the
middle of the night once really annoyed with her husband. Instead of
smothering him with a pillow, she decided to get up and write—to
create the perfect man—at least on a computer screen. Only to
discover that fictional males can be just as resistant to direction
as her husband. The upside is that she’s finally using her English
degree and is still married to her original, imperfect hero. Since
she’s imperfect, too, that makes them a perfect match. Until her
midnight keyboarding, she had been a teacher, librarian, newspaper
reporter, administrative assistant to two non-profits, community
volunteer, and mother of four in seven different states. Now Maggie
can call herself a romance writer in Maine. There’s nothing she
likes better than writing about people who make mistakes, but don’t
let the mistakes make them.

Cover Reveal – Beginner’s Luck by Kate Clayborn @kateclayborn

 
BEGINNER’S LUCK
by Kate Clayborn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 10/31/2017
 
 
When three friends impulsively buy a
lottery ticket, they never suspect the many ways their lives will
change—or that for each of them, love will be the biggest win of
all.
 
Kit Averin is anything but a gambler. A
scientist with a quiet, steady job at a university, Kit’s focus has
always been maintaining the acceptable status quo. Being a sudden
millionaire doesn’t change that, with one exception: the
fixer-upper she plans to buy, her first and only real home. It’s
more than enough to keep her busy, until an unsettlingly handsome,
charming, and determined corporate recruiter shows up in her lab—and
manages to work his way into her heart . . .
 
Ben Tucker is surprised to find that the
scientist he wants for Beaumont Materials is a young woman—and a
beautiful, sharp-witted one at that. Talking her into a big-money
position with his firm is harder than he expects, but he’s willing
to put in the time, especially when sticking around for the summer
gives him a chance to reconnect with his dad. But the longer he
stays, the more questions he has about his own future—and who might
be in it.
 
What begins as a chilly rebuff soon heats up
into an attraction neither Kit nor Ben can deny—and finding
themselves lucky in love might just be priceless . . .
