Seven Brides for Seven Texans Giveaway!

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of the musicals I enjoyed when I was young. This movie–about the oldest brother taking a wife and encouraging his six brothers to claim brides of their own by “capturing” them–came out in 1954. Even though that was a few years before I came on the scene, I remember watching the show and being swept up in the romantic aspects of it.

The Seven Brides for Seven Texans Romance Collection, coming December 1, features seven brothers who are issued an edict by their father: find a wife in one year’s time in order to claim a share of their father’s cattle empire. Although each brother’s story is told by a different author, the stories work together, much like episodes of a television show. There are no captured brides or musical numbers, but there is plenty of romance.

My story, “A Love Returned,” features the middle brother, Sam Houston Hart. When Coralee Culpepper declined his proposal, Houston left Texas for the gold fields of California. But when his father’s edict brings him home, will Coralee—the only woman to ever claim his heart—accept him, or will he be forced to return to the Golden State alone?

Writing a Texas-set story was different for me since I’m a native Californian who has set my novels here in the Gold Country where I live. I do have ties to Texas, though. It just so happens that my mother and my father-in-law grew up in the same West Texas town. Both had come to California before my husband and I were born. Discovering our shared heritage when I was dating Carl was fun. So was adding some Texas elements to Houston’s story.

I’m looking forward to the release of this collection, which has already received some glowing reviews on Goodreads. I have yet to receive my author copies, but you could win one of them anyhow. See the Rafflecopter entry form below, but first, here’s more about the collection and where you can get it.

An Unexpected Partnership 

Arriving in Texas, cowboy Jared Ivy discovers the grandfather he hardly remembers has passed away…and an unknown woman has claimed ownership of his family’s newspaper. Jared has the will that proves he’s the owner—but the sheriff refuses to enforce it. Instead, Jared must work with Mary Lou Ellison until a judge comes to town and rules in favor of the rightful heir.

Intrepid reporter Mary Lou has already lost her father figure. And she won’t lose the Pine Haven Record—the legacy he left her—without a fight. But when she and Jared stop sparring long enough to investigate a story together, they become a force to be reckoned with. Will they let their battle over the Record get in the way of something even more newsworthy: true love?

Fun Question for Angel…

I saw on Facebook that you recently checked out the new Hobby Lobby store near you. That must have been fun, especially since you enjoy making baby blankets. I find I frequent the same stores and realized they say a lot about me. If we were to run into a store you visit often, aside from grocery stores, which one(s) might that be and what would you be looking for there?

Angel says: “I’m a big TJ Maxx fan. You’ll find me in the clearance section first, then shoes, and then the aisle with all the cards and paper goods. I don’t shop often, but I love a deal. I like quality shoes, but I keep a tight rein on the money. I often tell people that I’m cheap, but frugal is probably more accurate. I also don’t buy things I won’t use or don’t need. Not even for my grands. I don’t like clutter or dusting, so I’m not a knickknack person. I admire them, but leave them in the store. I like to meander through all the aisles, except clothes. I don’t want to miss anything. On my way out, I might just pick up a piece of Godiva chocolate if they have it near the checkout. Now you have me wanting to go shopping!”

Your Turn…

Are you a shopper or a get-in-and-get-out-of-the-store-quickly type of person?

Which stores would we be most likely to find you in, and why?
