Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Tule Publishing’s Her Texas Ex

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?

Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Eve Gaddy’s Heart of the Texas Doctor

We're down to the final month 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.

This week's spotlight features Tule Publishing‘s HEART OF THE TEXAS DOCTOR by Eve Gaddy. This is book #1 in Eve's new Heart of Texas series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Eve's book:

“Graham and Bella’s love story in Heart of the Texas Doctor by Eve Gaddy, book one in Heart of Texas series, was a wonderful, sexy, emotional and enjoyable tale. ” Goodreads reviewer

Here's the blurb for HEART OF THE TEXAS DOCTOR:

Opposites attract…

Graham McBride is a cardiothoracic surgeon and the eldest of the McBride siblings. Dedicated, hardworking, traditional, and oh, yeah, hot. But Graham married young and divorced, and is now convinced no woman will tolerate his dedication to his career. When he meets Bella Benson at a party he’s immediately attracted to her, probably because she’s totally different from any woman he’s ever dated.

…but can they stay together?

Bella owns one of the local hair salons. She’s young, hardworking, successful and unconventional. And to Graham there’s no denying that, from the tips of her rainbow-colored hair to the soles of her fancy turquoise cowboy boots, Bella Benson is smokin'.

Bella is no more interested in getting serious than Graham. After all, other than a sizzling physical attraction, they don’t have a lot in common. But oh, that sizzle! Irresistible right? So they jump into the fire, both confident they can keep their emotions in check. Love and passion rarely stick with a plan, and while Graham has expertise in repairing hearts, he is disastrously clueless figuring out his own. Can he prove to Bella that he’s worth the risk?

If you like steamier reads you'll want to check out Eve's latest. The reviews on Goodreads for this are really good. I enjoy reading about doctors, especially “hot” ones. According to one review, there's also a cat in the story. Always a good thing! What do you think?

Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Stacey Joy Netzel’s Summer Bride

I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from our 2018 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.

Stacey Joy Netzel‘s SUMMER BRIDE is in this week's spotlight. This is book #14 in her Romance Wisconsin series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Stacey Joy's book:

“This book made me chuckle and near the end it had me reaching for my trusty box of tissues. I loved Dane, he has such a caring soul, you’ll have to read the book to find out if Kyra will give him the HEA he deserves.” Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for SUMMER BRIDE:

He has one month to make his bride fall in love with him before he deploys.

Kyra Sullivan has been left one too many times. If her father can walk out on his wife and children—twice—what’s to keep a man by her side? She doesn’t believe anyone will stay long enough to give her a happily ever after, until one night with Staff Sergeant Dane Owens opens her heart to dream.

But Dane has secrets. Obligations. Orders. Staying isn’t an option, and even worse, he has a feeling he’s not coming back alive this time. An honorable man would leave Kyra alone, but the moment he sees her again, walking away proves impossible. Can he convince her not being able to stay is different than leaving, or is he damned to repeat the past by once again ruining the life of someone he loves?

Oh, I love military romances. The premise sounds so cute, but also emotional. I think this pair is in for an interesting journey given their emotional baggage. What do you think?

Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Tule Publishing’s Next Door Knight

I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from our 2018 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.

This week's spotlight features Tule Publishing‘s NEXT DOOR KNIGHT by Nicole Flockton. This is book #2 in the Man's Best Friend series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Nicole's book:

“…Ms. Flockton has delivered a fantastic read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense and convincing; the romance was heart-warming; and the ending had me worried for this couple’s happy ever after because of the hero’s protectiveness and the heroine’s need to fight for her independence, but had me thoroughly enjoying how the hero makes things right with the heroine after their relationship goes awry.” Harlequin Junkie

Here's the blurb for NEXT DOOR KNIGHT:

Can a dog heal two wounded souls?

Newly single Kerry Williams is at her wit’s end. She's juggling her injured father’s care, a new job as the manager of a hip new restaurant and her therapy dog Willow volunteering at the Veteran’s Center — all while struggling to rise above her humiliating heartbreak. When her father's caretaker fails to show one evening, she’s terrified she’ll lose her job. And then Willow runs away. Panicked, Kerry gives chase and immediately runs smack into a tall, dark and sexy wall of muscle, palming a squirming bundle of fur. Her new hero seems like an answer to her prayers.

The last thing K-9 officer Caleb Bradshaw wants, is to babysit his neighbor's father and her dog. He’s facing a potential career-ending injury and grieving the death of his working partner, Trigger. Sure he can handle a cranky old man, but the quiet comfort of Willow who follows him around with liquid-eyed sympathy tugs at the heart he’s trying to keep walled-off after his many painful losses.

Kerry knows Willow can ease Caleb’s grief, but he continues to push her away. Even though her life is in shambles and she too should walk, Kerry knows she can’t and won’t. Will Caleb accept her help or will he close himself off completely?

Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Tule Publishing’s Lacey

I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from our 2018 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.

This week's spotlight features Tule Publishing‘s LACEY by Fiona McArthur. This is book #1 in the Outback Brides of Wirralong multi-author series.  Here's what a reviewer had to say about Fiona's book:

“t's such a romantic, well written story, that you just can't putt down until the last page. It's filled with heart, warmth and romance. Great story.” Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for LACEY:

Nine months later…

Lacey Jerome had always fought her attraction to sexy police officer Cameron James, but one crazy night, she let her hair down and fell into bed with him. Their night together turned more passionate, more soul-scorching than she’d imagined it could be, but mixed messages from Cameron had her fleeing the scene.

Now, she's back in Wirralong with the memories of their one-night stand etched into her mind and a mission to reconnect with the man who made her lose her head in the most delicious manner.

Cameron never forgot Lacey — and not for lack of trying. He has his own restrictive code, but somehow his thoughts always manage to wander to the newly returned beauty. He has questions and Lacey knows all the answers.
