A Hasty Betrothal

A Practical Proposal 

Though Lady Elizabeth Wayland would rather spend her days with her beloved books than an uncaring spouse, scandal forces her to find a match posthaste. To escape the scoundrel who almost ruined her, Elizabeth accepts an unconventional proposal from a childhood friend. But when she finds herself falling for her husband-to-be, will she be able to convince him to return her love?

Widowed cotton mill owner Miles Hawthorne vowed to never marry again—until Elizabeth’s reputation is on the line. Their betrothal begins as a simple favor. As he spends more time with his fiancée, though, Miles finds that there’s more to her than he ever saw before. And Elizabeth just might be the only woman who can slip into his heart.

Fun Question for Jessica…

I remember meeting you in person at a writers conference in Orlando several years ago. You’d driven there just for the huge literacy autographing. Somehow we managed to find each other in a huge room with 500 authors and their adoring fans. What a fun memory!

I was too busy at that conference to spend any time at Walt Disney World, but this California gal has been to Disneyland a few times. Since you live not too far from Orlando and have several sons, I’m guessing you’ve been to Walt Disney World a time or two. What are your favorite attractions?

Jessica says: “The sad truth is that I have been to Disney World twice, and only once was with my kids. But we had a blast and though I don’t remember the name, I’m pretty sure my favorite ride was whatever was the fastest! In the end though, my favorite part of Disney is the fireworks. There is something truly romantic and magical about those swirling, dancing moments of music and color.”

Your Turn…

Have you ever been to Disneyland or Disney World? If so, what attractions are tops on your list? If not, what rides at other theme parks do you most enjoy?

Wolf Creek Wife

A Marriage of Inconvenience! 

After a storm strands her overnight in Will Slade’s cabin, Blythe Granville’s reputation is in shambles. The townspeople doubt that she was innocently nursing him back to health after saving his life. Now Blythe must accept Will’s proposal: a marriage in name only to save her good name. But the former socialite is determined not to fall for her new husband…even if she’s drawn to the gruff stranger who’s vowed to stand by her, in sickness and in health.

Will never wanted to remarry after his ex-wife betrayed him. But now he finds himself hitched to a city girl who has no idea how to keep a house…but is somehow chiseling her way into his heart. As Blythe melts Will’s crusty facade, though, they’re discovering that this most unexpected union might just lead to true love.

Fun Question for Penny…

I saw in your Harlequin bio that you enjoy oil painting and have won some awards. That’s wonderful! What do you most like to paint? Do you prefer portraits, still life scenes, landscapes or something else? And the deadline-pressured writer in me has to know: are you able to find time to paint even though you’re busy writing great stories?

Penny says: “I don’t have much time to paint these days, but my awards were always portraits. Every fall, I start itching to use my hands instead of my brain. I’ve spent the past few falls taking a day here and there and painting on old wood-framed windows and selling them. I call them ‘Windows From the Past’ and include a page talking about where this window might have come from, what people looked out them, etc. It satisfies my creativity and gives me a break from writing.”

Your Turn…

What are your creative endeavors? Have you received recognition for them?

Distressing old furniture or household items has become quite popular.
Have you done any of this, or do you plan to?

LIH Spotlight: A Family for the Rancher

It’s August, and that means four new stories from
Love Inspired Historical will be on the shelves soon.

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
A Family for the Rancher by Louise M. Gouge.

A Family for the Rancher

From Neighbor to Daddy 

Rancher Edmund McKay likes his life simple and quiet—everything feisty neighbor Lula May Barlow is not! But with a cattle rustler on the loose, he’s duty-bound to protect the widowed mother, even without her approval. Yet he never expected to enjoy her company. And he certainly never thought her crowded, bustling house would be the first place he’d ever feel at home…

After a harsh childhood, Lula May knows how to stand on her own two feet. She doesn’t need Edmund’s help—but she’s starting to want it, all the same. So are her children, who clearly have matchmaking in mind. And when a threat from the past resurfaces, she realizes all that’s at stake…including her chance for a lifetime of love.

Fun Question for Louise

In reading the biography on your website, I learned that you started college the same semester your eldest child did. I love that you embraced that dream and didn’t let the fact that you were a more mature student stop you. You went on to earn a Master’s degree and work as an English professor. That’s impressive!

With all the years your spent involved with education, I’m sure you have plenty of wonderful memories. Which one stands out the most, and why?

Louise says: “It’s hard to pick from so many happy memories, but I think the best was being at the University of Central Florida at the same time as my two oldest children. Occasionally we met for lunch, which was very special. My daughter and I took a Creative Writing class together. And here’s a funny one: You know how moms sometimes have to go pick up a sick child from school? Well, one day in class I got too sick to drive myself home, so my children drove me there. In retrospect, that one still tickles my funny bone.”

Your Turn…

What is one of your favorite memories from your school days?
