For the Sake of the Children
by Danica Favorite
The Nanny Agreement
Widower Silas Jones needs a mother for his daughter, and marriage could help his former sweetheart repair her tattered reputation. Yet he can’t blame Rose Stone when she refuses a marriage of convenience after he once broke her heart, marrying another woman to save his family’s farm. He’s blessed Rose agrees to be his nanny. If only she’d look at him again with the warmth she shows little Milly…
Rose’s tarnished past hasn’t quelled her spirit. She’s building a good life in Colorado with her infant son—and the glimmer of a future with Silas. But when his in-laws try to claim Milly, Rose must decide if the makeshift family she and Silas have forged can reopen her heart to love.
Rescuing the Runaway Bride
by Bonnie Navarro
Wrong Groom, Right Bride
When the beautiful daughter of a wealthy Mexican landowner is injured saving his life, Christopher Samuels must nurse her back to health. Despite their language barrier, Chris grows close to Vicky Ruiz…but she’s betrothed to another man. Can Chris care for the spirited young woman and find a way to take her home in time for her wedding, without falling for her in the process?
Vicky would prefer spinsterhood to her arranged marriage. But while words aren’t necessary to express the growing attraction between them, Vicky can’t make Chris understand her reasons for running away. He seems determined to return her “home” to her father’s hacienda. Why can’t Chris see that the only home Vicky wants is with him?

Changes to my blog format…
To make things quicker and easier for all of us, I’ve switched things up a bit.
- Instead of asking the author(s) a question, I ask you one as a way to get to know you better.
- No more Rafflecopter entry forms. All you have to do is comment to enter the weekly giveaway.
- Each week of this month I’ve given away two books, those from December first, followed by those from January. Starting in January, I’ll be giving away the following month’s books, one per week. This way you can win the books before they hit the stores’ shelves. 🙂
Reflecting on 2016…
During this week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, I grow reflective. As I look back on the waning year, certain events stand out as the highlights. Sometimes it can be difficult to pick one experience that surpassed the others, but not this year.
The highlight of 2016 was our daughter’s return to the States after her three years in Europe. Adriana spent a year in France working as an English-language teaching assistant in two middle schools. From there, she went to Austria, where she spent two years in the same position, this time working in two high schools.
Although I’m thrilled that our gal had this incredible experience, I missed Adri and was happy to see her return, as my beaming face in the photo below illustrates. When Adri stepped off that escalator, she braced herself for my hug, which was a good thing. I threw myself at her with such force that I might have bowled her over otherwise.
Question for You…
When you look back on 2016, which event stands out as your best?
