November was a very busy month for WWW Member Shanna Hatfield. She had not one or two books come out, but four! Three books are western romance novels, and the third is an illustrated children’s book. The line that binds all three together are animals. Shanna includes a furry friend (or two or more!) in each book, which is sure to melt the hearts of all animal lovers who read them.
She also has two December (and Christmas-themed) books that are hot off the press. The Dove just released on December 2, with The Christmas Confection launching tomorrow, December 5th.
The Christmas Confection (releasing Dec. 5)
Born to an outlaw father and a shrewish mother, Fred Decker feels obligated to atone for the past without much hope for his future. If he possessed a lick of sense, he’d pack up and leave the town where he was born and raised, but something… someone… unknowingly holds him there. On the other hand, Elsa Lindstrom adores the life she’s carved out for herself in the small Eastern Oregon town. She and her twin brother, Ethan, run their own bakery where she delights in creating delicious treats. Then Ethan comes home unexpectedly married, the drunks in town mistakenly identify her as a missing harlot, and a mishap in the bakery leaves her at the mercy of the most gossiped-about man in Hardman.
Culver Daniels spent years cultivating a peaceful, orderly existence with his blacksmith shop and livery business. Then the pastor of Noelle lands upon a crazy scheme to save the town by sending for a bunch of mail-order brides. Despite his determination to remain single, Culver finds himself among those agreeing to wed. The moment he meets the beautiful gypsy woman he’s promised to marry, he realizes life will never be the same. Like Culver, widow Kezia Mirga has no desire to marry. Yet, for the sake of her most cherished treasure, she moves to a remote Colorado mining town to do just that. She arrives to find nothing as she expected, the town in a state of turmoil, and her intended far more handsome and charming than she imagined.
Professional bull rider Chase Jarrett has the world on a string. The only blight in his idyllic existence is his nosy cousin’s nonstop nagging about his need for more publicity. Tired of listening to her suggestions, he gives her free rein when she hatches a plan to skyrocket his popularity. All he has to do is show up for a phony wedding in Las Vegas. Then Chase discovers the wedding was real, the surprise bride is beautiful, and his sponsors are demanding he remain married. A business proposal leaves Chase and shy Jessie Pierce committed to a year of marriage. How hard could it be to remain wed in name only?
Blown Into Romance
Artist Brooke Roberts spent her life without roots, wandering from town to town. When she seeks refuge from a freak storm in the town of Romance, she decides to stay and open a blown glass studio. Determined to immerse herself in the community, she adopts a family of pigs. Brooke is unprepared for the chaos and comfort they bring to her world, or for the dashing cowboy who rescues stray animals, and, quite possibly, her heart.
Hotshot attorney Ellen Meade seems to have it all: a powerful position with her firm, a posh downtown apartment, and a bright future ahead of her. But for Ellen, the future grows dimmer with each passing day. Her apartment is lonely without her best friend, and the demands of her job are slowly killing her soul. At the same time, Burke Tipton loves his job as a Mounted Patrol Officer in downtown Portland. The life he’s built away from his family’s ranch is simple and uncomplicated. At least it was until a beautiful woman bumps into him and turns his world upside down. Add in Burke’s partner Sugar Bear, Lovey the dog, and a child named Mistletoe in need of a Christmas miracle, and you get a heartwarming, holiday romance.
