LIH Spotlight: Montana Cowboy’s Baby

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Montana Cowboy’s Baby, a July release from
Love Inspired Historical author Linda Ford.

Stand-in Daddy 

Conner Marshall knows the baby on the doorstep isn’t his—despite what the note says—but little Ellie needs a protector…and urgent medical care. Turning to the doctor’s daughter and capable assistant, Kate Baker, for help, he keeps the truth to himself. Why should he care if Kate believes the worst of him? The wary rancher can’t afford feelings for a woman who’ll soon be moving east for medical school.

A promise to her dying grandmother decided Kate’s future. She’ll become a doctor and forgo a family of her own. Now, tending to Ellie at the Marshall ranch, she sees just what she’s sacrificing, especially when Ellie’s mother returns. But the littlest matchmakers can sometimes make the biggest dreams come true…

The Joy of Reading

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to having more time for now that I’m winding down my writing career is reading. I spent the day in our backyard camped in our fancy new gravity lounge chair doing just that. The temperature was perfect, there was a light breeze and I had one of our cats for company. Talk about relaxing! I was in my element.

💜💜💜

Questions for You

New Endeavors

When I announced my retirement in my May 15 blog post, I mentioned how excited I am to embark on this new chapter of my life. One of the things I’ve been looking forward to is having time to volunteer at church.

I’ve assumed a position in our Kids World program that’s affectionately known as a Bin Babe. A dear lady and I meet with our Children’s Director once each week to fill five bins with supplies that will be used the following Sunday by our elementary teachers, making their jobs easier.

Because I love organizing, I was given permission to do some rearranging of the many supplies we have on hand. I’m just getting started, but my first project of finding a new home for the most-used craft items is complete, thanks to some clear plastic shoe boxes. Looking at this shelf makes my heart happy.
I have plans for many other organization projects, including creating an inventory of all our elementary department supplies using an Excel spreadsheet. Can you tell I’m detail-oriented?

Having time to do something that brings me so much joy is helping smooth the transition from my writing world to my new role as a retiree. There are moments I miss telling stories, but I’m helping Sunday School teachers tell the most important stories of all, which fills me with a deep sense of satisfaction.

💜💜💜

Questions for You

What’s the most enjoyable volunteer position you’ve ever held?

Are you a detail-oriented or big-picture person?

Is organizing something you enjoy?

LIH Spotlight: Taking on Twins

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Taking on Twins, a June release from debut
Love Inspired Historical author Mollie Campbell.

Learn more about the story below, and then scroll
down to enter the giveaway for a print copy.

Doctor Daddy 

Jake Hadley expects challenges when he returns to his frontier hometown to establish a medical practice—but caring for orphaned toddler twins wasn’t part of the equation. The new doctor would be out of his depth without Coralee Evans’s help. Once his sweetheart, now his best friend’s widow, Coralee has a tender way with the children that makes him long for a second chance. Until Jake is faced with a choice: Coralee or his career…

When Jake left Spring Hill for medical school, Coralee believed he’d abandoned her. And though a reunion might be possible, he’s working for the man trying to ruin her apothecary business. Could caring for these sweet children bridge the gulf between them and provide a prescription for rekindled love?

Character Names

Mollie used the name Coralee for the heroine of Taking on Twins, which makes me smile. That’s the same name I gave to the heroine of my novella, “A Love Returned,” in The Seven Brides for Seven Texans Romance Collection.

Coming up with character names can be both fun and challenging. We want our characters to be unique, but there are only so many names to choose from. It’s inevitable that readers will encounter characters from different books that bear the same names.

💜💜💜

Questions for You

Does the name of a hero or heroine affect your decision to read a story?

Do you remember character names from the stories you’ve read?

If you were given the opportunity to name a LIH hero
and heroine, what names would you give them?
