We're down to the last couple of weeks of “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway post from our 2018 project! After that I'll be starting in on the authors and publisher who are participating in our 2019 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 2018 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to 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.

In this week's spotlight is Tule Publishing‘s HER TEXAS EX by Katherine Garbera. This is book #1 in Katherine's new The Dangerous Delaneys series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Katherine's book:

“Some of this book was hard to read because of the emotions involved. I couldn’t help but tear up reading those parts. The characters and their struggles felt so real. This is a must read book if you like second chance romances and a good family drama. Even though it is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.” Goodreads reviewer

Here's the blurb for HER TEXAS EX:

She couldn't forget him, even if she tried…

When Amelia Corbyn was a vulnerable teen, she found out she wasn’t a Corbyn by blood. Her biological father was a legendary country singer who wanted nothing to do with her. Hurt and confused, Amelia fled Last Stand Texas for a modeling career in New York. She left behind her high school boyfriend and family who had kept too many secrets. Years later Amelia’s back in Last Stand, retired from modeling and determined to care for her aging parents. She’s not expecting to see the one man she loved and couldn’t forget. Even worse, the spark is still there just waiting to burst into a flame.

Former pro-football player Cal Delaney returns to Last Stand to raise his sister’s toddler after a car accident claims her life along with her husband. His feelings for Amelia seem stronger than ever, but he has secrets and responsibilities; and Amelia has already proved to him that when things get tough, she skips town.

Can Cal forgive their past so that he and his first love can have a future?

This sounds like a very emotional read with a second chance romance. Add in some trust issues, a toddler, and aging parents and I can see why one reviewer recommends having tissues nearly. What do you think?
