Evergreen Springs (Haven Point, #3) by RaeAnne Thayne

Evergreen Springs (Haven Point, #3)Evergreen Springs by RaeAnne Thayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

RaeAnne brings us back to Haven Point. This time we get to meet Devin and Cole. Devin is the beloved town Doctor and Cole is a single dad learning how to balance being a good dad and running a ranch. Their paths cross when Cole's sister has a small accident which then caused her to go into early labor. The storyline was fresh and didn't feel like "read that, done that". Devin longs to be a mom but her past illness made that difficult. Devin's and Cole's relationship blossoms as she helps with providing temporary care and support to his children. Cole has a dark past that makes him think he us not worthy of someone as wonderful as Devin. Find out if Cole pushes her too far away and loses the best thing for him.
I wish we learned a bit more about Tricia's and Sean's relationship before and after the birth of the twins, I didn't feel closure. I would like to have seen more soul searching conversations between Cole and his Dad. All in all this is a great Holiday read. It brings the spirit of Christmas and healing just in time for everyone.
Looking forward to coming back to Haven Point.

It only took an instant for her world to come crashing down…but Heart Fire Ranch is a place of new beginnings, even for those who find their way there by accident

As the only veterinarian in town, Justin Hart doesn't have time to think about romance. So when A-list actress Alyssa Cole crashes her car outside his clinic, it's entirely unexpected when there's a spark between them he can't ignore. Still, she's a movie star, and he's just a small town cowboy.

Alyssa has learned the hard way not to believe first impressions, especially not in Hollywood. But, 400 miles from her former life with nowhere to go and no one to turn to, she places her trust in the handsome vet who comes to her rescue.

There's no denying the connection between them, but when Alyssa's past shows up at the door, will their new relationship be able to withstand the storm?

T. J. Kline was raised competing in rodeos and rodeo queen competitions since the age of 14, She has thorough knowledge of the sport as well as the culture involved. She has had several articles about rodeo published in the past in small periodicals as well as a more recent how-to article for RevWriter.

Tour ~ Guest Post and Giveaway ~ The Bride Wore Denim by Lizbeth Selvig

The Bride Wore Denim
Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys # 1
By: Lizbeth Selvig
Releasing July 21, 2015
Avon Impulse

When Harper Lee Crockett returns home to Paradise Ranch, Wyoming, the last thing she expects is to fall head-over-heels in lust for Cole, childhood neighbor and her older sister's long-time boyfriend. The spirited and artistic Crockett sister has finally learned to resist her craziest impulses, but this latest trip home and Cole's rough-and-tough appeal might be too much for her fading self-control.

Cole Wainwright has long been fascinated by the sister who's always stood out from the crowd. His relationship with Amelia, the eldest Crockett sister, isn't as perfect as it seems, and with Harper back in town, he sees everything he's been missing. Cole knows they have no future together—he's tied to the land and she's created a successful life in the big city—but neither of them can escape their growing attraction or inconvenient feelings.

As Harper struggles to come to grips with new family responsibilities and her forbidden feelings for Cole, she must decide whether to listen to her head or to give her heart what it wants.

My Top Ten Wedding Songs

Hi Everyone!
I love wedding music, and I have to admit that I’m still a sucker for some of the most traditional songs out there, especially when it comes to entrances and recessionals. They might border on the corny to some, but I still get goose bumps when I hear Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (aka Here Comes the Bride) at the start of any wedding ceremony. And the same for Mendelssohn’s Wedding March at the end for a recessional.  And there’s always Trumpet Voluntary and Pachelbel’s Canon. Total classics!

But since I’ve been working on a series about Seven Brides, and it’s inevitable that I’ve had to “plan” a couple of weddings, it’s led me to think about the more contemporary songs I love to hear performed during a service. And of course I’ve come up with a list of songs my heroines and their heroes might choose for their weddings. I thought I’d share my current Top Ten Favorite Wedding Songs with you.

Here you go:

10. “Come What May” from the movie Moulin Rouge. This is such an epic tune and just the words make me cry. Everyone should have a love that fits these words. 

9. “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney. Again—this just has such epic love lyrics. I wish Paul had written it for me!

8. “I Swear” by John Michael Montgomery. This was pretty cliché at weddings for a while in the early 90s, but listen to the words and you know it could be brought back anytime!

7. “Everything” by Michael Buble. I love this. So upbeat and yet meaningful. This is what lovers/partners should be to each other.

6. “Longer” by Dan Fogelberg. Another really towering song lyrically. “Deeper than any forest primeval . . .”  You can’t really get much deeper in love than that!

5. “Grow Old With Me” by John Lennon (Mary Chapin Carpenter). I love this song but it’s bittersweet, of course, because John never did have the chance to grow old with his love. Still, the sentiment (taken from a Robert Browning poem) is something we all have when we choose the love of our lives.

4. “When I Say I Do” by Matthew West. This is an amazing song that goes directly to the meaning of vows and knowing that you really mean to honor them. It’s pretty much perfect!

3.”Annie’s Song” by John Denver. One of my favorite songs about how love completes and fills you. There’s just something so peaceful that touches my ‘love is forever’ soul.

2. “Marry You” by Bruno Mars. I have simply fallen in love with this song. It’s so simple. It’s so positive and there’s nothing fake or overwrought about it. It’s just a great counterpoint to all the wonderful but super-serious meaningful songs. This is the “recessional” song I used for the first wedding of my new book series Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. (You’ll find it in Book 3 “The Bride Wore Starlight” coming out in December!)

And finally, here is my Number One favorite wedding song of all time:

1. “There Is Love (The Wedding Song)” by Noel Paul Stookey. There are so many reasons I love this song and have listed it as number one. It speaks not only to love but to my faith. And most special of all to me, it’s the song my husband and I had sung at our wedding back in 1974. I was just nineteen years old and nobody thought I was old enough to know what I was doing. This song was my way of saying I definitely did—to my family and my groom. And—we’ll be celebrating 41 years in September, so I guess the song was (one of many) good luck charms for us!

So there you have it—my top ten. But I’d love to hear your suggestions, too. Or tell me what music was performed at your (or a friend’s) wedding that you still love! Thanks so much for inviting me here today!

Tour ~ Giveaway ~ Kim Law’s Montana Cherries

Montlake Romance, Contemporary

Paperback & Kindle
 Amazon   B & N    BAM  POWELLS

After her mother’s tragic death, Dani Wilde had no choice but to abandon her dreams. She left Columbia University and returned to her family’s Montana cherry farm, intent on being a maternal figure to her brothers. Now the kids are grown, and it’s finally her time to fly. Her sights are on New York City, and nothing will stop her—not even an old flame with gorgeous green eyes.

Celebrity photographer Ben Denton hasn’t seen Montana in years—and hasn’t spoken to Dani since “that night” so long ago. When he discovers he’s a dad to a four-year-old—and the child’s mother refuses to care for her—Montana and the Wilde farm spring to mind. The orchard is the only place that’s ever felt like home, but will the warmth of the Wilde family be enough to help Ben figure out how to be a father? 

As the Wilde family gathers for the yearly cherry harvest and Dani struggles to figure out what she really wants in life, she discovers the shocking truth about her own mother—and learns that following her heart may lead her to her dreams after all.

As a child, award-winning author Kim Law cultivated a love for chocolate, anything purple, and creative writing.

She’s won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award, has been a finalist for the prestigious RWA RITA Award, and has served in varied positions for her local RWA chapter. A native of Kentucky, Kim lives with her husband and an assortment of animals in Middle Tennessee.
