Callie Hutton | 13 comments A Chance to Love Again

99 cents

Widow Rachel Stevens is very happy with her job as a cook for the Lazy Sunset ranch where she is raising her son. However, the new foreman, Rusty McIntyre, is turning her life upside down. She could overlook how her son has begun to idolize Rusty, but she’s having a heck of a time ignoring the flutters in her stomach every time the man smiles at her.
But Rusty has problems of his own. His previously unknown fourteen year old daughter has just arrived to live with him. Used to always being on his own, now he has a young boy following him around imitating his every move, and a surly young lady glaring at him. Throw into the mix the tug he feels toward the ranch cook—who wants no part of him—and life is no longer as easy as it once was.

Callie Hutton | 13 comments A Run For Love


It’s April, 1889 and the Oklahoma Land Run is about to begin. Since they’re going to be evicted from their Kansas home, Tori Henderson needs land to provide a home for her four nieces and nephews. Jesse Cochran wants to leave his past behind, and practice law.

Their first encounter in Arkansas City has them snapping at each other. His opinions on a woman participating in the Land Run without a husband certainly enforces her opinions of domineering males. It’s easy to dismiss each other, however. That is until the dust settles after the Run, and they end up next door neighbors in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

They declare a truce, which works well except for the strong attraction that’s pulling them together. Tori wants to keep Jesse at arm’s length. He wants to run his hands over her curves and kiss her senseless.

A family emergency puts them on the road together, where all those sparks turn into flames. An unintended pregnancy follows that forces them into matrimony. But before Tori can even reconcile herself to the marriage, a tragedy tears them apart. Now it’s up to Jesse to convince her that their love can survive anything, and they truly belong together

Patricia Preston | 2 comments To Save A Lady (French Quarter Brides, #1) by Patricia Preston


Amazon Link:

To Save A Lady

Romance and adventure set in the French Quarter of New Orleans in December 1814. It's not a Regency, so this story is for readers looking for a change or something different, or if you love New Orleans like me, you'll say bring it on, along with some pralines.

To Save a Lady is a romantic novel about courage, loyalty, and what you're willing to sacrifice for those you love. It takes place when the city is threatened by war and the stakes are high. Captain Jesse Cross has some doubts about his survival as the outnumbered American army will face great odds in battle. But his greatest battle is one of the heart when he falls for a French girl who is cloaked in mystery. In a desperate attempt to save her mistress, lady's maid Elise Plaisance becomes involved in a dangerous masquerade, and she stands to lose everything if she doesn't succeed. Yet, how can she prevail when the man who has stolen her heart is determined to stop her? (She does have a tendency to pig out on pralines when she's nervous. Just so you know there are lighter moments.)

To Save a Lady is Book One of the French Quarter Brides series. It's a mainstream historical. Heat level: warm. Occasional strong language and some lust going on! Jesse and Elise promise to keep you turning pages during a cold winter night!

The fifth book in the Evolution Series and a 49,000 word historical romance novella.

A vicious neighbor uses a series of coincidences to label Salena as the local moon-charmer, making her an outcast in rural Francia. When Salena encounters her brother's childhood friend, Nox, out on business for the Lord of Ribeauville, she fears he will accept the locals' tales about her, especially since they relate to the death of his family a decade before. He is, instead, as charmed by her as she is by him.

Nox's sympathy for Salena evolves into affection in spite of his strict rule against close ties with people. Afraid to risk another loss like that of his youth, he abruptly ends their relationship, unaware that Salena has already been downtrodden by her father denying her request to venture farther out into the world.

A threat to Salena's family prompts her to run away in the hopes of protecting those she loves while forging a new path for her life. Too late, Nox discovers that she has also run away with his scarred heart.

But when she expresses her wishes, her world comes crumbling down because she has fallen for the wrong man. Who can she run to but the strongest ruler of the region, Deveshwaraya?

Devesh finds himself torn between duty and desire. He is drawn to her yet being with her jeopardizes everything he has worked for. When even protecting her invites trouble, how can he let his heart become involved?

When the walls of monarchical politics rise high between them, will her passion prevail?

‘Truly they weren’t needed!’ He drawled and stepped closer to her. The warmth, the sense of strength that exuded from him enveloped her again. Only this time, she felt a lure too, the lure of his mysteriousness, his virility. He spoke quite close to her, ‘If you have the intent to wound, just the lightning striking from these eyes would be deadly!’
He sounded like her he was flirting with her and her heartbeat quickened. ‘Samrat…’
‘You surely don’t need me to tell you that you are beautiful.’ He murmured.
They stood spellbound by an unnamed force. Then a gust of wind blew past and his gaze shifted from her and alighted on the orange flag of the Kamboj clan. He stood looking at it whipping in the wind, the moment broken.

The princess must marry to please her family...

Princess Lakshaya prefers far more to study science than to learn the arts of impressing royal suitors. She would rather she didn't get another proposal. But refusing a king as opulent as Kartik is out of question. Kartik himself is totally out of her experience. Lured against her will to the force of his attraction, she begins to accept him.

Royal unions and love don't mix well…

She finds he has been hiding facts from her. He wants not her but the rule he can strengthen through their alliance.

Can she still go ahead with this marriage?

Then finds exactly why he wants marriage
And complications begin

The Kamboj Princesses Saga continues with Rukmani’s sister Lakshaya. Although the setting and the family is the same, this is a standalone story separate from Book 1 titled Hidden Passion. It can be called a prequel since this story is earlier in timeline than Hidden Passion which features the youngest sister Rukmani. This is a complete work. There are no unfinished threads in either book. 

King Kartikeya must marry a princess. He's determined to do anything to keep the kingdom that he has taken with strategy and sheer guts. If that involves charming a princess into marriage, then so be it. 
Princess Lakshaya infinitely prefers the study of her scientific experiments to the learning of the arts of impressing a suitor. In fact, she would rather have no more proposals at all. But refusing a king as opulent as Kartik is out of question. Drawn against her will by the force of his attraction, she begins to accept him, only to discover hidden secrets along the way. 

Can she bring herself to go ahead with this marriage?
