A Prince for Valentine’s (Merrie Housdon’s Romance Shorts Book 1) – A jewel of an historical romance by Merrie Housdon.

Also available on Amazon UK and iTunes as well as for Nook and Kobo.

“Not one girl here worth taking will accept any of our invitations to the St. Valentine’s Day ball, until you’ve chosen your date,” Owen addressed his friend, who had arrived at the university under a royal flag a few months before, his wind-blown, dark hair almost matching the mane of his black stallion. “Last year we were the top choices, but now, all the girls are waiting for you.”

Recognizing his responsibility to choose, Garrett’s gaze traveled around the room, finally settling on the one who had captured his affections.

Will the prince find the courage to follow his heart as his father had, or will he bow to the wishes of his people?

Can love truly conquer all?

Love’s Plan (Luna Lake Cabins Stories Book 4) – a romantic women’s fiction novella byAnnie Acorn

Also available on Amazon UK and iTunes and for Nook and Kobo.

Winter this year had come early, broken all sorts of records and gave no indication that it was ready to move on, in spite of the fact that it was the first of April. Still, corporate management has designated this as the week for Brett Logan and Maggie Sutherland to attend a mandatory seminar at Luna Lake Cabins of all places.

Each with their own reasons, they both soldier on despite the raging snow storm outside – the only two participants to arrive at the Cabins. Things go from bad to worse when the power goes out, leaving them stranded – two strangers, isolated on the shore of Luna Lake, where circumstances lead to startling revelations as the dark night progresses.

The first novella offered in her Luna Lake Cabins series by internationally read, From Women’s Pens author Annie Acorn will fill your heart with laughter and love as Brett and Maggie face together the truths about their best made life plans.

Two Guns and a Gal (D. A. Grady’s Western Tales Book 3) – A classic western novella set in the 1800s with full doses of romance and humor added for good measure by D. A. Grady.

Also available on AmazonUK and for Nook and Kobo ereaders.

Dusty horses and riders, gals and guns are the backdrops for most westerns because that’s what life was in those days. Add to that a mystery identity, one really bad tornado, and the way country folks help each other when times are tough, and you have all the ingredients for great entertainment.

Two Guns and a Gal is a tale woven from the genre of several old time classic western authors as beloved storyteller D.A. Grady’s unique style reaches back into the 1800s and finds mystery, suspense and romance as it really was back then.

Do the good guys always win? Folks who read this work are the real winners here, as they turn one page after another to find out.

Happy Reading!
