LOOKING FOR TROUBLE by Erin Kern: Fleeing her rich, overbearing family, Avery makes her way to Trouble, Wyoming. She soon tries things the old Avery wouldn’t dare, like having a sizzling affair with her sexy new boss, Noah-and discovering he’s just the kind of trouble she needs.
MONTANA LEGACY by R. C. Ryan: When Amy left Jesse, she broke his heart. Now she’s back in town and stirs his old desires, even as she promises to help him find his family’s gold. But under the prairie skies an unseen enemy is closing in to threaten their love-and their lives.
The lovely authors were kind enough to each answer a few questions:
What would readers be surprised to find out about you?
R.C. RYAN- I’ve been singing since I was a kid, and thought about a career as a singer. I chose instead to marry young and raise five great children. And then tried my hand at my great, driving passion – writing.
ERIN KERN- Probably that I used to be a dancer. I danced ballet for about twelve years and actually performed with the Oakland Ballet two years in a row.
KATIE LANE- I married my high school sweetheart and he inspires all my heroes. (Even when he forgets to take the Chapstick out of his pant pockets and the entire load of laundry ends up with grease spots.)
LAURA DRAKE- I’m a thrill seeker. I Love roller coasters, riding motorcycles and I’ve even skydived – until my last jump when chute didn’t open, and I had to throw the reserve. If I were younger, I’d try getting on a bull!
MOLLY CANNON- I’m really good at trashcan basketball.
LYNETTE AUSTIN- I have, at present, sixty-two pairs of flip-flops, and one of those pairs traveled to Morocco with me where I rode a camel. I can’t resist a great pair of flip-flops.
What’s one book you read in the last 6 months that has left a lasting impression and why?
R.C. RYAN- The Book Thief. I thought, because it was originally written as a young adult novel, I’d breeze through it and on to the next, but it was heart-wrenching, and I found myself fully immersed in that era.
ERIN KERN- Jill Shalvis has been a huge inspiration of mine for a long time. I love just about everything she does. But when I read At Last, I was more or less blown away. It’s one of the few books that I pre-ordered and then re-read as soon as I finished it. After reading it the second time, I actually re-wrote some of my current manuscript because I was so inspired by Ms. Shalvis’s writing and storytelling abilities.
KATIE LANE- Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. It was the most wonderful, bittersweet romance I’ve ever read. It made me sob like a kindergartener on the first day of school, but it also reminded me how life-changing love can be.
LAURA DRAKE- Coyote Dream, by Jessica Davis Stein. The author uses wonderful characterization of two disparate cultures and ethnicities (NY Jewess and Navajo New Mexican) in a believable, wonderful way. The characters’ journey both inner and outer, are long, arduous, and believable. A wonderful romance!
MOLLY CANNON- BEST KIND OF BROKEN by Chelsea Fine. This book was funny, heartbreaking, and it was one of those books that stayed with me for days after I finished. Loved it!
LYNETTE AUSTIN- I couldn’t put down The Collector by Nora Roberts. Not only was the plot intricately and brilliantly woven, but it revolved around Faberge eggs, the Romanovs, and Russian history. I love it when, while reading a great book, I learn along the way.
What makes a cowboy, a cowboy?
R.C. RYAN-Hard, dirty work. A love of the land. A courtly, fiercely protective attitude toward family, women and children. Their work makes them rough and tough, but their heart and soul, their innate goodness makes them the perfect hero.
ERIN KERN- Have you seen a cowboy lately?? Scuffed up boots, worn jeans, callused hands, a little five o’clock shadow, slightly too long hair….shall I go on?
KATIE LANE- I think it has to do with the legend. Cowboys have always been heroes (Wait, is that a song?)—strong, alpha men who can wrangle a steer and know how to treat a lady. It’s this mixture of tough man and mannerly country boy that makes a true cowboy . . . and makes women go crazy. That, and a snug-fitting pair of jeans.
LAURA DRAKE- Old world manners, an unbreakable word, and a wild side.
MOLLY CANNON- Well worn boots
LYNETTE AUSTIN-Attitude. A cowboy is strong and confident, and he’s not afraid of an equally strong woman. He carries in his heart old-fashioned values. He stands for his country and its flag, says yes, ma’am and no, sir, and loves his mama and daddy—kind of a throwback to a slower, easier time but with a kickass edge.
