We continue the month with another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway post from the now-cancelled 2020 project. Usually these follow the Mother's Day tote bag projects, but this year that is on hold. Enjoy these books from the authors who offered to sponsor the 2020 Mother's Day thermal bags for three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver. They will also be participating in the big readers giveaway at the end of the project!

THE HEIR by Joanne Rock is in this week's spotlight. This is the sixth book in her Dynasties: Mesa Falls series Here's what a reviewer had to say:

“A absolutely great read. It’s heartwarming and sweet. I was captivate your from the beginning with a little bit of mystery. I absolutely loved the characters, the connection and sizzling chemistry. I enjoyed the story as the secrets were unraveled. A great end to the series..” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for THE HEIR:

This rancher has nothing to hide… Or does he? 

Will he give her answers…

or tempt her to his bed?

Helping Nicole Cruz discover who fathered her orphaned nephew draws ranch and casino owner Desmond Pierce into the cruel legacy of secrets he’d rather avoid. Also unavoidable: the red-hot attraction sizzling between them. But the faster Nicole gets the answers she came for, the sooner she’ll leave Mesa Falls. And that’s suddenly a prospect more daunting than any scandals they may uncover…

For those who like more steam in your romances, you won't want to miss Joanne's newest book. I love when couples have a mystery to solve and wonder who is her nephew's father. As the blurb says, this sounds like a red-hot read!  What do you think?
