It’s only two days until my book release day and I’m nervous about how it will be received. It’s deeper and more emotional than anything I’ve previously written. While there is a romantic storyline the main focus is between two sisters who have gone through a traumatic event, damaging their relationship.
Whether it’s because of Covid or my kids moving to New Zealand, I’ve been in an introspective mood for a long time and think the story comes from those feelings. I hope you can connect to the book and maybe, hopefully, understand the message I tried to impart within its pages.
Anyway, on with this week’s reading recommendations.

Ever since I was introduced to Sandra Cox’s westerns I’ve been hooked. She creates scenes right out of my favorite John Wayne or Clint Eastwood flicks, with characters who are tough as rawhide and just as compelling.
Archaeology professor Luke Geller is looking forward to a summer of discovering ancient potsherds in Nevada. Instead, he finds a mysterious rifle and a portal in time. Deposited into 1882, Luke is still trying to get his bearings when a beautiful woman appears, gun in hand, demanding her rifle. Bemused, Luke talks her down, then gratefully accepts the offer of a night’s lodging until he can figure out his next move.
Lilly Winter Tremaine doesn’t trust the handsome stranger she’s invited to her ranch, but they need help, and he seems to have nowhere to go… Her household companions, Saffron and Taffy, take to Luke after a bit of contention, but Lilly isn’t as willing to let him into her life. He wears strange clothes, talks weird, and has a secret that could cost Lilly her heart.
No-Gold Ranch, Lilly’s home, is under threat of a hostile takeover from a nefarious saloon owner whose game plan seems to be either marrying Lilly or killing her. Luke isn’t about to stand by and let him succeed. The Lost Gold women mean too much to him. Lilly means everything to him.
The characters are engaging. There is even a horse appropriately named Ornery and a cat with attitude- what more could you ask from a wonderful read?
When intern Dilly Faraday sneaks onto the NASA rocket to find her beloved armadillo, Fang, she doesn’t expect to be knocked unconscious, only to awaken deep in outer space.
Persuaded by a strange-looking man wearing pink fishnets and waving a ray gun in her direction, Dilly finds herself onboard a time-traveling machine operated by a cat. The adventure is about to begin, so hold on to your hat!
The author takes us through some of history’s big events where Dilly and her newfound cohorts are on a mission to save the world.
This is a fun sci-fi mystery romp done by the queen of extreme, Teagan Geneviene!
Fenna Vos learned the art of escapism from necessity as a child. Now she incorporates her talent into an equitable illusionist act with her brooding partner. And though she wishes for more from life, she could never have dreamed she would be called upon by British intelligence to help with the war effort by teaching her trade to soldiers caught behind enemy lines.
Fenna’s designs are put to the test when she becomes an operative in the Netherlands. Spying is dangerous, but if it means protecting those she loves, Fenna will take the risk.
Her bravery throughout the book is inspiring. Learning about the amazing tools used to defeat the enemy was interesting. I love books showcasing strong women changing the world and this is a great example. Excellent storyline!
