Along with my fresh look, I'm starting a new feature on Vintage Vonnie--"Books I've Loved." You know how I love to party and you're aware of my lifelong love affair with books. But I have other loves, as well, and one of them is supporting other writers. So, I got this wild idea...I know that's a scary thing. Why not chose a few authors most every week and promote one of their books? Three or four stories I loved showcased as a surprise. Why a surprise? Because every book is a surprise, is it not? A delightful, emotion-filled surprise created by my featured authors and enjoyed by their readers.
Choosing three or four won't be easy. I mean, there are SO many awesome books out there. I typically read two books a week and since I've been reading romance since '66, well, I've got gobs and gobs of favorites. There are endless writers I adore and have learned from. Authors who have invaded my mind and heart, carving out a permanent spot there. So check back every week to see who I'm featuring. You might be surprised. If you don't see someone you know this week, stop in next week and the next.They'll be arranged in no particular order for no particular reason.
BOOKS I'VE LOVED
He rode into town to buy supplies, not a woman.
For hunted recluse Rafe McBride, the dark-haired beauty on the auction block is exactly what he doesn't need. A dependent woman will be another clue his vengeful stepbrother can use to find and kill him. But Rafe's conscience won't let him leave another innocent's virginity to the riff-raff bidding. He buys her, promising to return her to St. Louis untouched. He only prays the impending blizzard holds off before she breaks his willpower.
She wanted freedom, not a lover.
Whisked to the auction block by her devious, gambling cousin, and then sold into the arms of a gorgeous stranger, outspoken artist Maggie Monroe isn't about to go meekly. Especially when the rugged mountain man looks like sin and danger rolled into one. But a blizzard and temptation thrust them together, and Maggie yearns to explore her smoldering passion for Rafe.
But when the snow clears, will the danger and secrets that surround Rafe and Maggie tear them apart?
Get Wild. . .And Then Get Wilder. . . Accountant Katie Kramer is a quintessential good girl--working hard, recycling diligently, all the while trying to ignore the feeling that she doesn't fit in anywhere. That's all she wants. Well, that--and amazing sex, and the kind of daredevil escapade she can look back on when she's crunching numbers in a dusty cubicle. Which explains why she just took a job in Wishful, California, working for Wilder Adventures and Expeditions. Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over her bed--that part defies explanation. . .
