Guardian Bride

The print version of the fourth book in the Quinter Bride series, Guardian Bride, has been released as an early bird special at The Wild Rose Press. The e-book version will be released the end of this month.

Every book leaves a special mark in my heart, and this one is no different. I loved discovering how deeply Snake falls in love with Summer and her siblings. He’s a remarkable man that I hadn’t really got to know while writing his brother’s stories.

My mother reads all my stories in draft form. Yes, she’s my mom, so she says wonderful things about every book, however, she’s also an avid reader and I do respect her comments and suggestions. The morning after I gave her this book, she called to say she stayed up half the night reading. She’s 79 and said she hadn’t read a book that held her attention so intensely in years. Ironically, my beta reader said relatively the same thing.

We celebrated family b-days this weekend, and I’m still full from all the wonderful food. My oldest made homemade ice cream that was the best I’ve ever tasted. Hubby and I spent all day Saturday traveling from store to store (and town to town) looking for a new wood stove for our sauna. I’m looking forward to trying it out. The old stove warped from usage and we’ve missed it. (Needless to say, I didn’t get much writing done on the new MS this weekend.)

Hope you all have a GREAT week! Smile at strangers, they may be friends you haven’t yet met.

It's a great book I've had the pleasure of reading!

A sauna? Did you build it? If so, send me the info on how to build one.

Thanks, Paty.

My Dad, husband, and the boys built the sauna years ago. It'll take a picture and send it to you...if I ever get home from work while it's still light out! ;)

Do you know when it will be released on amazon?

Sorry, I don't know an exact date for Amazon. The print version is already there, and sometimes the ebook lands there around the same time as it's release with The Wild Rose Press, but other times it's up to a month later. You can download the Wild Rose Press ebooks to a Kindle if you know which format. Sorry I'm not more help.
Thanks, and have a wonderful weekend!
