TIt took me a while, but I finally have the final “authors with heart” spotlight and prize pack from our 2016 project! In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2016 or 2017 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to two Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle and Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM.

If you don't know about Lynda Ward, she wrote for Harlequin Super Romance and has been re-releasing some of her backlist. TOUCH THE STARS is book 3 in her Welles Family series.

Here's the blurb for TOUCH THE STARS:

After finally leaving a bad marriage, Kate Welles Brock is living on her own terms, as a businessperson, as a woman. Mysterious philanthropist Paul Florian appreciates her in a way her overbearing family and ex-husband never did, his regard as genuine as his concern for the world’s needy. Kate would find him equally easy to love–if only he weren’t so secretive about his past.

Available at:
Amazon Kindle | BN Nook | iBooks | Google Play


Once upon a time, I only read Harlequin category lines. They were my go to for-me-reads through college and after I graduated. I'm so happy that some of these titles are finding new life and readers in eBook format! I like the hint of mystery about the hero's past, and I love that the heroine is strong and living her own life. What do you think?
