The Forgiving Quilt by Lenora Worth

Posted January 14, 2023 by Marsha in Amish Romance, Little to None Sexual Content (kissing), NetGalley, Series, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

Running a historic Inn on Pennsylvania’s beautiful Shadow Lake has blessed the Amish King sisters in work and family. Now they just need to add room for love . . .

Eliza King already has a broken heart, and thanks to a rickety ladder, she now has a broken leg too. She isn’t dealing with either very well. Ever since a brief romance ended when the boy who’d been courting her tried a little too hard to take things further, Eliza has sought refuge in reading books and tending to her beloved horses. Being incapacitated makes the latter impossible. But her Englisch doctor knows an Amish man looking for just such work . . .
 
Eliza is shocked to discover that the man is Levi Lapp, the very boy who humiliated her, now all grown up. Levi is embarrassed over his clumsy behavior as a teen. He wants to earn Eliza’s forgiveness, even if he can’t win back her heart. . . . And once Eliza reluctantly agrees to hire him, she finds herself enjoying the little gifts and encouraging notes Levi leaves for her. Encouraged by her older sister, she begins to fashion a quilt out of each item. Soon Eliza can see Levi’s caring spirit plainly before her—and the possibility that he might just be the best thing for her horses—and for her.

A Cowboy for June by Jamie K. Schmidt

Former rodeo star June Grayson has hit rock bottom, so she heads home to Last Stand, Texas, and lands a job at the Three Sisters Ranch until she gets back on her feet. Restless and searching for her new normal, June’s determined not to get hurt again, but a sexy cowboy both calls to her wild side and soothes her need to run.

To Esteban Lopez, the Three Sisters Ranch is more than a job. He’s worked hard to help the ranch thrive and in return, it has helped him support his family. But when his brother is passed over for a job in favor of a rodeo hotshot—who is also a lifelong crush of his—Esteban struggles with mixed emotions. His attraction makes him feel like a traitor, but he’s never mixed work and play.

One unforgettable night, June and Esteban blur the boundaries, and they’re not sure how to redraw them. She’s only in town temporarily, but he can’t shake the feeling that when she leaves, she’ll take a chunk of his heart with her.

A Cowboy for April by Jamie K. Schmidt

Posted November 18, 2022 by Marsha in ARC, Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Tule Publishing / 0 Comments

April Grayson is the responsible one in her family of wild, barrel-racing rodeo stars. After years of keeping her sisters out of trouble, she’s finally earned some time to let loose. She indulges in a one-night stand with the cowboy she crushed on in high school. It’s as hot as it is memorable, but the next day she finds out Cole works for her new accounting client. He’s dead set against having one of the “Wild Grayson Sisters” working on Three Sisters Ranch.

Last Stand rodeo youth director Cole Lockwood loves horses, kids, and cowgirls—not necessarily in that order. Even though his night with April leaves him wanting more, his parents’ medical bills have him working 24/7. He’s tempted to go back to his professional gambling ways and enter a high-stakes poker game, but April warns that’s a loser’s bet.

Cole and April strike a deal: she’ll teach him about managing his family’s finances if he helps her overcome her fear of horses and learn how to be a little more reckless. Can this cowboy make a cowgirl out of her?

The Cowboy’s Heart by Jamie K. Schmidt

Posted November 18, 2022 by Marsha in ARC, Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Tule Publishing / 0 Comments

It would take a Christmas miracle to get these two together

Veterinarian Janice Sullivan has been horse-crazy all her life and only wanted to work on her family’s cattle farm, the Three Sisters Ranch, but her father’s constant criticisms drove her away, forcing her to choose a new career in dressage and leaving her secret crush behind. With the ranch facing possible bankruptcy, Janice has an idea to save it – a woman’s retreat. With Christmas around the corner, Janice is not only hoping for a chance under the mistletoe with the one man she’s been unable to forget but also to give a few cowgirl wannabes a chance in the saddle.

Bah humbug! The last thing ranch foreman Nate Pierson needs is a bunch of weepy or giggly eggnog-swilling city chicks getting in his way and distracting his men while they’re busting their tails wrangling longhorns. His short temper and lack of patience often push people away except for the one woman he needs to leave alone. As tempting as she is, Janice, the boss’ daughter, can never be anything more than a fantasy. The only Christmas spirit he wants is 100 proof, especially when he has to matchmake Janice with the ranch’s vet.

Nate knows from experience that Christmas miracles are for suckers, but it doesn’t stop his heart from wishing Janice could wind up under his tree instead of with the man her Daddy wants her to marry.

The Cowboy’s Hunt by Jamie K. Schmidt

Posted November 18, 2022 by Marsha in Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Romantic Suspense, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Tule Publishing / 0 Comments

Activist Emily Sullivan left her fulfilling job in the Peace Corps to save her family’s ranch from bankruptcy. Her dream is to use renewable energy because conservation and education are her passion. Unfortunately, her parents believe there’s a greater profit in allowing hunting tours to cull the local wild species. Emily vows to change her parents’ minds.

Donovan Link doesn’t stay in one place or with one job too long. This cowboy-turned-hunter is determined that the hunting lodge he built on the Three Sisters ranch will give him a nice nest egg so he could retire to Alaska, where the game is plentiful and his incarcerated father can never find him.

When these two opposites clash, sparks fly. Donovan sees Emily as a sabotaging eco-warrior and she sees him as a soulless trophy hunter. But they need to work together to keep the Three Sisters ranch in the black and fighting with each other — and falling in love — complicates an already impossible situation.

The Cowboy’s Daughter by Jamie K. Schmidt

Posted November 18, 2022 by Marsha in Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Tule Publishing / 0 Comments

She’s moved home, but can she move on? 

One night with professional bull rider Trent Campbell had been everything that Kelly Sullivan had fantasized about. Unfortunately, it cost her everything. When she became pregnant, her father threw her out because she wouldn’t tell him the baby’s father was his rodeo hero—the hero who ghosted her when she tried so many times to tell him about their daughter. 

Trent Campbell never forgot the best night of his life. It was what kept him going when a 2,000-lbs bull ended his career and almost his life. Throughout his long recovery, thinking of Kelly and wishing he still had his stolen phone so he could contact her, were what got him through the tough days—that, and his bull-headed stubbornness that he’d not only walk again, he’d ride. 

When Kelly returns to Last Stand, Texas, in a last-ditch effort to keep her family from selling the Three Sisters Ranch, she has a plan to make her father proud of her again by turning part of the land into a portrait studio location. Her father, however, has already temporarily leased Trent some land for a rodeo school. Kelly and Trent still have the same explosive chemistry, but now the stakes are higher. If she lets Trent into her life, it won’t only be her heart he breaks this time if he leaves, it will be their daughter’s.

Callie Carmichael has a gift for making bridesmaid dresses—some even call them magical. Somehow, every person who’s worn one of her dresses has found love. Real love. And as long as that happily-ever-after is for someone else, Callie is happy. Because she’s fully over getting her heart broken…which is why her new roommate is definitely going to be a problem.

After being overseas for six months, Callie’s only choice is to stay with her best friend’s ridiculously hot brother, Hunter Owens. Cowboy, troublemaker, and right now, the town’s most coveted bachelor. Only, Hunter isn’t quite the player she thought. And if it weren’t for her whole “no more love” thing, their setup could get confusing really fast.

Now, Hunter wants Callie to make him a best man suit—a “lucky for love” kind of suit. But what happens if she makes the suit and he finds true love…and it isn’t her?
