Quilts of Love | RIVAL HEARTS – Kindle HDX Giveaway & “Quilting Bee” Facebook Party!

New from Quilts of Love | Rival Hearts

They both want the promotion. But will they find out that it is worth the cost? Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests. Can girly‑girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he‑said, she‑said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?  Find out more and purchase a copy at the Quilts of Love website.




Tara Randel is the author of five romance novels including "Lasting Love," "Melody of Love" and "This Time Love." A member of ACFW, Tara is also the lead author of the new Annie’s Mysteries series (see AnniesMysteries.com). Tara lives in New Port Richey, Florida.








My Reflections on this book:   I am totally in love with the Quilts of Love Series.   I love the "series" are stand alone books that does not matter where you start in them.  I loved the story of Ben and Molly.  They are both competitive and the boss plays on that nature in them.  He also pushes them out of their comfort zone to try new things and experiences.  But then it takes a turn when false accusations are made, how do they handle the situation when the truth comes out.

What do I think about this book:

Here is another new to me author Ronie Kendig.  This is so far out of my comfort zone and so far out of the box that it left me stunned.  Wow who would ever thought that I would be reading a military book.  The book seems to skip around some and you do have to keep the guides that are provided in front of the book handy.   Other than that this is an excellent read.   It is full of action, adventure, and is really exciting.  Join me on that adventure.   I can't wait to explore more of this authors works.  Oh yeah, this would make a great Father's Day present.

Thoughts and Feelings About This Book:

I am very new to Historical Fiction and have avoided it for so long.  Now, I cannot seem to get away from it.  I am loving History mixed with a fictional story.  Karen Barnett takes you on an odyssey of medicine when it was in its early infancy.  It is mixed with a budding romance.  I appreciate the author bringing out the fact not everyone has a rock solid faith.  What good can come out of tragedy and natural disasters?   What can come out of the ruins of our lives?  The author really brings out a lot of good questions in this book and how a person with a newfound faith can truly rise above tragedy and natural disasters.

THE HEART’S PURSUIT BY ROBIN LEE HATCHER | ROMANTIC WEEKEND GETAWAY GIVEAWAY AND BLOG TOUR

The Heart’s Pursuit
A jilted bride desperate to save her family from ruin.
A bounty hunter seeking vengeance for a ravaged past.
An arduous trek toward justice–or redemption.
Silver Matlock and Jared Newman know traveling together is a bad idea. Bad for Silver’s already tarnished reputation in her small Colorado town. Bad for bounty hunter Jared’s secret, single-minded mission for revenge. But Silver is determined to track down the rogue who left her at the altar and stole the last remnant of her father’s fortune. And Jared’s in a hurry to hunt down the murderer who destroyed his family–even if Silver is too distractingly beautiful for comfort.
The pair takes off over mountain and desert, past bleak homesteads and raw mining towns, hot on the trail of the two villains who took what wasn’t theirs to take. Soon supplies dwindle, secrets emerge, and suspicion leave Silver and Jared at odds when they need each other most. To confront an enemy deadlier than desert rattlesnakes and rocky cliffs, Silver and Jared must learn to forgive and trust and face the question they haven’t dared voice: What happens next?


Best-selling novelist Robin Lee Hatcher is known for her heart-warming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. The winner of the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, the RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance, two RT Career Achievement Awards, and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, Robin is the author of over sixty novels.










How do I feel about this book:

Here is another out of the box and out of my comfort zone book.  This is my very first Christian Western Romance that I have read.  It is a great read and very hard to put down!  You are drawn immediately into the characters of Silver Matlock and Jared Newman.   How do you trust a stranger let alone a bounty hunter?  What secrets are they both hiding?  Will two people who give up on love ever find love again?  These answers are waiting to be found in within the pages of this book.  I loved the love story between Jared and Silver blossom and how they let God work in their lives.  It is mystery, love story and redemption all wrapped in one.  









Robin Lee Hatcher's latest novel, The Heart's Pursuit, is receiving critical praise: "The Old West lives again in this inspirational romantic adventure. . . . Themes of forgiveness, justice and mercy dominate the story and add to the characters' depth. Hatcher treats readers to a rich sensory experience—you can taste the desert dust and smell the smoke and stench of a crowded gambling hall." (Publishers Weekly)

Robin is celebrating the release of her novel by giving away a $200 "Romantic Weekend Getaway."
