Ann Roth: New Mini-Series



This month marks the release of A Rancher’s Honor, the first book in my new Prosperity, Montana miniseries.

Have you ever done something totally out of character–and ended up with a whole lot more than you ever bargained for?

That’s what happens when Lana Carpenter and Sly Pettit …

But wait–I’m not going to tell you about that. J

What I WILL say is that Lana Carpenter runs a daycare in Prosperity, and that Sly Pettit is a sexy rancher. They don’t know the same people and probably would never have met if they hadn’t … There I go again, wanting to share this story right now, when I’d rather you pick up the book and find out for yourself. J


How about a little background instead? Prosperity, Montana, is a fictitious town not far from Great Falls. This ranching town also features great hiking and camping, and the gorgeous Prosperity Falls, famous not only for their beauty, but for the marriage proposals and weddings that take place within sight of the falls. If that isn’t a great setting for finding true love…

What’s your idea of the perfect place for a marriage proposal? If you’re married or engaged, how did he (or she or you) propose?

Leave a comment for a chance to win an autographed copy of A Rancher’s Honor.

I didn't think of a perfect place to get engaged. I think it depends on the couple and what they enjoy doing together.
My proposal was ... um ... memorable. I was 21 (and had had a previous boyfriend for 1.5 years without discussing marriage). He was 31 (and had never had a girlfriend). He invited himself (after dating since Labour Day weekend, but knowing of each other through mutual friends for about a year while I had been dating my former boyfriend until August) to my sister's apartment for Christmas with her and her new family, plus my parents. We opened gifts in our caftans or robes/pajamas. I opened a lovely skirt/blouse set and watch from my boyfriend. The last gift, though, was a ring. He asked me to marry him and I paused, because I felt it was way too soon. My mother, though, piped right up and said, "Yes, she'll marry you!" I was stunned. I finally said, "I can't give you an answer right now. It's too soon. I didn't expect this. Give me a couple of weeks to think about it." I came home that night and wrote out a list: why I want to marry him, why I don't want to marry him, why I want to get married, and why I don't want to get married. The "don't want to" lists were three times longer than the "want to" lists, but I told myself that the quality of the reasons far outweighed the length of those reasons. I said yes on Dec 27, we wed on July 11 (when the plant where he worked shut down for two weeks), and we are coming up on our 33rd wedding anniversary. No regrets (other than he isn't George Clooney or Mark Harmon, LOL).

You're so sweet, Stephanie. Thanks!!

Nah. It's just that he had a good paying job so could support me well ... was nice ... and, most especially, he wasn't my previous boyfriend, LOL!

I never did receive a proper proposal. We just kind of fell into the marriage.

I think that any place can be special. You make it your own & that makes it special.

I think that happens a lot, Mary. Couples are doing great, getting along, and then they decide to get married. :-)

Anywhere as long as it is romantic!
