This has been a genre I have learned I really enjoy and there have been a ton of free ones in the past few years on kindle, just need to figure out which one I want to nominate. I like the historical fiction westerns!

Is Texas considered Western? Lol, if so, I'd like nominate Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist. Love her work!!


message 4: by Diane U (new)

Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments Texas is western in my book!

I would like to nominate:

Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson


message 5: by Janet (new)

Janet | 153 comments How about A Cowboy's Touch by Denise Hunter By denise Hunter?


message 7: by Lorelei (new)

Lorelei | 6 comments I would like to nominate "The Farmer Next Door"... but it's borderline as a "western". She is Amish, and moves west, to raise alpacas. It's a great read - but maybe we need to slate it for March?


message 8: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand I'd like to nominate Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson. It looks like a lot of fun :)


message 9: by Carole (new)

Carole Jarvis I'm going to second Rachel's nomination of Sixteen Brides. It does look like fun and this will give me a reason to put it at the top of my TBR pile.

Marg (margpelan) | 16 comments I would like to nominate Westward Hearts (Homeward on the Oregon Trail, #1) by Melony Carlson I have read it and it was excellent. I am waiting for book 2. I am sure you would all enjoy it


message 11: by Kate (new)

Kate (liahonagirl) I am nominating Land of My Heart by Tracie Peterson.

Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments Ooh, I have not read anything by Mary Connealy before. I have the whole series of this book! I am looking forward to it!


message 15: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand Mary Connealy is a great writer! I've read a couple of her books and really enjoyed them. Doctor in Petticoats was my favourite, and one of the first books that got me started on Christian historical romance. I think I may have this one on my Kindle.

I read the Out of Control series. The first book was a Kindle freebie and I loved the whole series. I have not bought this on kindle yet but I noticed it was $7.99 for this book or the whole series for $9.99 so I will probable by the one with all three stories in it.

Or you can buy the whole series as one book in paper from Christianbooks.com for $5.99. Here's the link:

Wonder why the whole series book is more on Kindle it should be less lol.


message 19: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand CBD are having a big sale right now, maybe that's why it's so cheap? I have found a few books that are more expensive on Kindle and it really makes no sense!


message 20: by Diane U (new)

Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments Before I buy a book, I check out the kindle price, Amazon price for paper and CBD price for paper. I've saved some serious money by getting them from CBD over kindle! I'm all for saving a buck!


message 21: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand Amazon Marketplace is also really good for getting deals. I've often brought brand new or barely used books for £1 or £2 less than Amazon's selling price through their alternative sellers. Unfortunately, it costs a lot to ship from CBD so I have to wait and do bulk orders.
