What a way to kick off the new year!
Today my first book of the year is released in stores. It's called One Dance With The Cowboy and it's the first in a duet called Cowboys and Confetti. One Dance With The Cowboy is a reunion story between high school sweethearts. It's also set in the town I created named Larch Valley. My first Larch Valley book was out a year ago, called The Rancher's Runaway Princess. I loved being back in that setting again, and I enjoyed writing a little more of Lucy and Brody into the plot.
Here's part of my Dear Reader:
In 2008, our family moved from Alberta to the east coast of Canada. We left behind some very good friends, and also fond memories of the Prairies...
Writing stories set in Larch Valley has been specialbecause in a way it keeps me connected to the part of Canada I called home for over a decade. Little did I know when I wrote The Rancher's Runaway Princess how muh I would look forward to visiting this town again. I hope you enjoy Jen and Andrew's story, and come back...to meet Andrew's brother Noah, and find out what happens when he meets the unstoppable Lily Germaine.
I'll just be catching my breath from that when it's follow up book, Her Lone Cowboy, comes out in March. I know we're not supposed to have favourites, but I have to say the hero Noah is one of those I will never forget. It's out for release in the UK in April, paired up with Diana Palmer's Tough To Tame.
I'm so thrilled to have this duet hitting the shelves! You can catch up on the duet and other Larch Valley info by visiting the Larch Valley site. You can download a printable bookmark, try your hand at a cover puzzle or do a special word search too on the Fun and Games page!
Happy New Year!
