Well, OK, I'm not really that much of a tease. *wink * But here are a few "teasers" about three awesome books that will be released in the next few months!
A BRIDE OPENS SHOP IN EL DORADO, CALIFORNIA
Author, Keli Gwyn
This is Keli's debut novel, and I'm very, very excited to read it! It comes out next month, y’all--YIPPEE!!
Curious? Here’s a little more from Keli's website to whet your appetite:
"Widow Elenora Watkins heads to California with her nine-year-old daughter, Tildy, eager to become partner in a mercantile. When the mulish owner withdraws his offer because she’s a woman, she opens her own shop. She’s determined to prove herself capable of running a successful business without the help of anyone—including her controlling father, her seemingly distant heavenly Father, and one Miles Rutledge.
Widower Miles Rutledge is not about to get involved with another willful woman like his late wife, especially when she’s his competition. But the beautiful Elenora and her precocious daughter may be too hard to resist. When another man appears out to claim Elenora’s heart, Miles searches for a way to win her back. . .while putting her out of business.
Meanwhile, Maude Rutledge, Miles’s meddling mother, longs to see her son make a good match. And Tildy is just as bent on gaining a loving papa.
The battle of wills begins, but can anyone win when the competition is more than they bargained for?"
Can’t wait, right? Me either!!
Next, we have two fabulous authors with new books coming out in September!!!
First, Laura Frantz’s book: LOVE’S RECKONING! The teaser for this is short, sweet, and very intriguing! (Awesome cover, right?!)
"Two sisters. One man. When he chooses one, will the other destroy their love?"
The setting for this book is 1784 Pennsylvania! How awesome is that?! Very few books take place in that era, and it’s one of my very favorite!! Laura is a very talented writer, I can’t wait for this story!
The next author who’s third book debut’s in September is Jody Hedlund! I love Jody! Her book UNENDING DEVOTION looks wonderful! This is what her website gives as the teaser for this story:
"In 1883 Michigan, Lily Young is on a mission to save her lost sister, or die trying. Heedless of the danger, her searches of logging camps lead her to Harrison and into the sights of Connell McCormick, a man doing his best to add to the hard-earned fortunes of his lumber baron father.
Posing during the day as a photographer's assistant, Lily can't understand why any God-fearing citizen would allow evil to persist and why men like Connell McCormick turn a blind eye to the crime rampant in the town. But Connell is boss-man of three of his father's lumber camps in the area, and like most of the other men, he's interested in clearing the pine and earning a profit. He figures as long as he's living an upright life, that's what matters.
Lily challenges everything he thought he knew, and together they work not only to save her sister but to put an end to the corruption that's dominated Harrison for so long."
Dare I hope that this character will have brown hair and brown eyes? It's hard to tell from the cover, but I can't stop myself from hoping. (You think I need to get over my little obsession with the whole brown hair/eyes thing? Sorry, I don't think I can...)
Isn’t it fun to have new books to look forward to?! I just love it! It’s more exciting than waiting for a new movie to come out, but then again that’s just me. Of course, these books are available for pre-order! I mean, why wait right? *giggle * Check out these author's websites for more info!
