Oldies, but Goodies #romances #rafflecopter #wildrosepress

How many of you have books you've hung onto for years? Books you just adore for whatever reason. I have a couple dozen like that. Books I read at least once a year. That's the beauty of books.

Books never go out of style. They won't shrink in the dryer or clash with your new hair color.
They contain the same joy, magic and “oh wow” moments forever.
 With those thoughts in mind, a few of us Wild Rose Press authors decided to feature some books from the Wild Rose Press catalog. You know, those oldies, but goodies.

Ciara, Immortal Fury, spends her days locating evil and administering justice. When her goddess mothers inform her they need a gifted child, Ciara agrees to their plan. She will swap places with Faolan MacKay's shy bride long enough to conceive, bear, and train a child in the old ways, before resuming her duties as avenger of wickedness.
Laird Faolan MacKay's advisers are pushing him to wed. Faolan has lost everyone he's ever loved and would rather travel to hell than down the aisle. To silence his advisers, Faolan chooses a woman rumored to be meek and easy to ignore. One problem: nobody ignores Ciara.
Against his will, he's enthralled with his new wife--to Ciara's surprise, the mortal affliction called love burns hotter than her hunger for vengeance. But when their time is up and Ciara must leave, can the bond of love overcome the edict of the ultimate powers?


Carissa Valeria distrusts the handsome soldier who rescues her reckless son from plunging to an early death. Recalling the man's heartless treatment of her from years ago, she itches to even the score, but her son hails the rescuer as a hero. When he becomes her neighbor, her son's friendship with the soldier threatens to uncover old secrets and place her family and her heart in danger.

Exiled to the countryside by the Roman emperor, Maximus Octavius is confounded by the brittle countenance of the woman he's willing to befriend. She's afraid, and he's determined to find out why. But helping Carissa and her son means confronting the guilt of his long-forgotten past and stirring the silenced passion in his heart.

Can Maximus win Carissa before fear and revenge tear them apart forever?


After two failed marriages and countless relationships, Sandra Holiday thinks she's met the man to end her years of less than perfect choices; choices that not only derailed her travel-related career plans but also left her single and broke.
 Carson Holiday, a Las Vegas country crooner with swoon-inducing good looks, spent his adult life pursuing a recording contract and love, never holding on to either. After eighteen years, he drops back into Sandra's life, reigniting an attraction he can't deny.  When Carson reappears, Sandra must choose again. Only this time, nothing's as it seems. A secret admirer, a redheaded stalker, and an eccentric millionaire throw her on a dangerous path, with Carson her only truth.
As life confronts her with yet another turning point, will her decisions find her eternally sleeping with the lights on --- or will she finally discover a way to turn them off?

At the mention of an arranged marriage, Elizabeth Caughley feels her life is over at the age of three and twenty…so she hatches an escape plan. She will reinvent herself as a housemaid. Overnight, Elizabeth becomes Lily - on the understanding if her attempt at independence fails, she will return home and marry a man of her parents' choosing.

Viscount Westrop will ensure his legacy is passed to his own son one day. Even though he feels insurmountable pity for the unborn child already, he knows how much pain a broken promise can cause and will do what is right. But with the arrival of his new housemaid, his plans are thrown into disarray. Lily is funny and feisty and the most beautiful creature on earth - Andrew is thunderstruck. But if anyone suspects how much he wants to ravish her and endlessly love her, Andrew's lineage will undoubtedly be in peril.


The Red Hand Conspiracy, Book Two

What should be a wonderful trip to Paris turns menacing when Gwen Morningstar's daughter is kidnapped by The Red Hand terrorist group. Fortunately, Jean-Luc LeFevre of France's Counterterrorism Unit is there to rescue her little girl. Gwen is grateful, but her need to apprehend the abductors must override any desire she feels for the handsome agent with his own brand of justice...and danger.

Jean-Luc is not pleased when Gwen, a crime scene photographer with just enough training to get them killed, is assigned to work with him. Not only does she take too many risks, she drives him to distraction.

As Gwen and Jean-Luc track the terrorists, their feelings for each other grow as fast as the danger. Jean-Luc is determined to protect Gwen and her daughter, but the sinister grasp of The Red Hand is strong and far-reaching. It will take more than love to keep them all safe.

I have all or most of these books and haven't had a chance to read them yet. I so need to pick up my reading! Thanks for sharing some great books, Vonnie.

There's no such thing as an "old" book...thanks for sharing, friends.

Janice Hougland said...

Thanks for your post, Vonnie, and introducing the Wild Rose Press to us readers who hadn't heard of it before (or couldn't recall that they'd heard of it). All of the books sound like fascinating reading so I'm putting my hat in the ring for this GC! Thanks again.

Thanks, Rolynn, I hope to have a new selection next week. Check back.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Calisa, my reading has slowed down too. With all this writing, my eyes are too tired by bedtime to read more than a chapter.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Angela, you are so right. There are no old books...only cherished ones.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Janice, good luck in the drawing.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Barb, I've had the joy of reading them all. What fun.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

You're welcome, Christine. Thank YOU for the enjoyment your book brought me.
