Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Melanie D. Snitker’s Marrying Bonnie

As we begin March, I want to share one more 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature. In these posts, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2019 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. I'll be starting work on the 2020 project next week!

MARRYING BONNIE is the newest release from Melanie D. Snitker. It's part of her Brides of Clearwater series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Bonnie's book:

“This book is so good! It is well written and holds your attention. It is a beautifully written story that will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next. This is the first book I've read in the Brides of Clearwater series, now I want to read the rest of this series. If you like a good clean romance, you will love this book.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for MARRYING BONNIE:

He's falling in love with the wrong person…his son's nanny.

Bonnie Tabor grew up in a wealthy family. For her, that meant emotional neglect and a healthy dose of pretense. Walking away from her inheritance was the best decision she ever made because she discovered her dream job working as a nanny. Too bad she had to fall in love with her handsome employer, a single dad who may be rich but is kind, caring, and loves his young son unconditionally. Should she quit before things get too complicated?

Jace Echolls keeps his business and personal lives separate. That makes ignoring his growing feelings for Bonnie easier. But when he takes over his grandfather's farm, everything changes. Now that he's free to spend more time with her and his son, Jace wants them to be a real family. How can he convince Bonnie to give him a chance after he's kept her at arm's length for so long?

Oh, another single dad story. Yay! I like the farm angle. That's different and makes me curious. And Bonnie sounds like an interesting heroine, too. It's in Kindle Unlimited which makes it a no brainer to put on my TBR come the 5th. What do you think?

It’s been two years since former engineer Gabriel Ivers lost his wife and accepted a job as a building superintendent to be home with his children. His focus is being both mom and dad to his girls, until the beautiful Amelia Blake moves next door and reminds him he’s a man as well as a dad. Just as he begins to hope that his life can once again hold more than homework, chores, and movie-and-manicure nights with his girls, he discovers the reason for the fragility beneath Lia's warm smile.

Lia is trying to move on with her life after a miscarriage ends all hope for a baby, and a subsequent betrayal destroys her marriage. She’s charmed by her new neighbor with his sparkling manicure, multi-colored hair clips, and his brood of girls, but disturbed by the sexual tension that sizzles between them. Gabe and his daughters remind her of everything she’s always wanted and it would be so easy to take what he's offering her. But is she ready to risk her heart again, especially when her heart isn't the only one in play?

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. Good thing Gabe is a fighter who's determined to prove to Lia he’s in this for the long haul…the rest of their lives.

No good deed goes unpunished.

When an unwanted Valentine’s Day present is dumped at the shelter, volunteer Lily decides to foster the poor dog herself. A little attention is all he needs to blossom into a loving pet, ready for his forever home. Plus, helping a poor, rejected animal will distract her from her own problems. Win, win. Right? Wrong. Valentine needs more than a makeover if he’s going to be adopted. He destroys her home, hates to be groomed and when he behaves better for a perfect stranger than he does her, Lily swallows her pride and begs the good looking but quiet stranger for help

After losing his canine partner in a horrific moment that upended his future, sexy and stoic Shane turns to books, walks in the park and remodeling his grandmother’s home. No more intense K9 officer career, no more dogs, no more risks. But it’s hard to ignore the misunderstood mutt at the park and his well-intentioned, but clueless, handler. Shane reluctantly agrees to give her a few tips and tricks, but that’s all. He won’t care. He won’t get invested. And once Valentine finds his new home, his life can go back to normal.

But Shane doesn’t bargain on a new normal in town and, suddenly, Valentine’s Day will never be the same.

Now she’s holed up on the ranch she and her sisters inherited, training horses. She’s not interested in falling in love again. It’s too painful.

He has a deep need to protect.

Undersheriff Evan Young is a single dad and his daughter—a heart transplant recipient—is everything to him. So what if he’s a little overprotective? After losing his wife, he couldn’t bear it if anything happened to his little girl Ava.
