A Nanny for Keeps

A Family in Need 

With no teaching positions open, Georgia Marshall agrees to become the temporary nanny for the two little girls next door. But she soon becomes enamored of the precocious children and their dashing but distant widowed father. Though she’s falling for him, she can’t help but think that the nobleman is out of her reach.

After the tragic loss of his wife, Tyler Walker swore he’d never again give his heart away. Until his neighbor brightens his home and brings some much-needed stability to his motherless family. But he refuses to allow this arrangement with the pretty teacher to become permanent…no matter how much he wants Georgia by his side—forever.

Fun Question for Janet…

A woman’s clothes closet can reveal a great deal about her. What would we learn about you if we took a peek in yours?

Janet says: “You’d know that my favorite colors are teal, aqua and green—and that I keep going back to those colors again and again. In fact I need to add a few other colors to the mix!

You’d also see that while I like pretty clothes, I want them to be comfy and casually dressy so I can go to the store or out to eat and not have to change two or three times a day. But you wouldn’t find many designer names in there, so you’d know I try to find my own style 🙂

You’d also find that I have some ‘yard’ clothes for working in my garden, and you’d know I love flowers of all kinds.”

Your Turn…

What would we learn about you if we took a peek in your clothes closet?

Once More a Family

The Texan’s Convenient Bride 

To bring his daughter home to Texas, widowed rancher Jack Burnett needs a wife. And the well-bred Ada Westmore, his neighbor’s niece, will surely meet his father-in-law’s approval. Not willing to open his heart again to love, Jack proposes a marriage in name only. But his independent bride proves more intriguing than he expected.

Needing to support her sisters after the collapse of their father’s fortune, Ada reluctantly agrees to the handsome cowboy’s proposal. The transformation from New York belle to prairie wife—and mother—is challenging for the onetime suffragist. But when their little family faces the threat of being torn apart, Ada and Jack must decide whether their marriage of convenience can become a marriage of love.

Fun Question for Lily…

I saw on Facebook a while back that you sell vintage collectibles on eBay. I love that! What have been some the most  exciting finds you’ve added to your inventory so far?

Lily says: “That’s a hard question to answer, because we’ve found so many treasures! And I have a very bad habit of keeping the best for myself. I am greedy that way.

I guess my all-time favorite find came from the dump, of all places. We were dropping off our trash and I saw something sparkling in a pile of musty newspapers. The man at the dump said it was a chandelier and he couldn’t bear to throw it away, but I could keep it if I promised to fix it.

So I took it home and scrubbed about 50 years of nicotine residue off of it, and then took it to a rewiring shop. The man there replaced two missing pieces, and got it back in perfect working condition. He estimates that it’s from the 1930s, and complimented me on my excellent eye! LOL! The chandelier now graces our dining room, and everyone in my family just loves it. It’s now a part of the family.”

Your Turn…

What vintage items do you have in your home, if any?
Do you enjoy shopping on eBay?
If so, what are some of your best finds?

Bride by Arrangement

Mail-Order Matchmaking 

Newly minted Cowboy Creek sheriff Noah Burgess doesn’t want a wife—despite his friends insisting that he needs one. So when they send for a big-city single mother to be his mail-order bride, he’s fit to be tied. Even if vivacious Grace Longstreet might just be the only person who can see past Noah’s scars…and help him heal.

Grace needs a husband to keep her and her twin daughters out of her brother-in-law’s grasp. And she’ll do anything—including taking on her cousin’s identity—to find one. But as the attraction between Grace and the lawman sparks higher, she begins hoping for a real marriage. So she needs to tell the truth…or a mail-order match that’s meant to be could crumble.

Fun Question for Karen…

I saw on Facebook a while back that you enjoy sending snail mail notes to friends. When did your love of sending handwritten notes begin? What are some occasions that have you pulling out pen and paper and putting an actual stamp on an envelope?

Karen says: “In this age of communicating mainly by texts, emails and online messages, there’s something nostalgic about handwritten cards delivered to your mailbox. My aunt recently started making her own cards, and each one is unique to the recipient and the occasion. I treasure these little works of art and often leave them out for others to enjoy. It means something when someone takes the time to buy or make a card, pen a message and mail it. While I don’t make my own, I stock up on cute blank or thank you cards to send out whenever the mood strikes.”

Your Turn…

Do you enjoy sending snail mail?

When’s the last time your day was made by a note in the mail?
