101 Best Romances from the past decade

Thanks, Colleen Coble, for giving me the heads up on this list from! And thanks to BookListReader for including #ABeautySoRare, a Belmont Mansion novel, on this list! 

Anyone reading Marcus and Eleanor's story right now?

Here are some favorite reader excerpts from A Beauty So Rare:

"Eleanor liked looking at him from this side. Actually, she liked looking at him from any angle. Although heaven help her if he ever knew. The man's ego practically entered the room before he did."

"She didn't want that—to have regrets at the end, to look back on things she wished she'd had the courage to do but didn't even try. She didn't want to merely survive this life. She wanted to live it."

Do you have a favorite quote to add?

Secretariat-themed Giveaway

What does Becky Wade's newest novel, A Love Like Ours, and mine, To Win Her Favor, have in common? Thoroughbreds! Specifically, Secretariat, the 1973 Triple Crown Winner.  

The horse in Becky’s novel traces its lineage back to Secretariat, and Secretariat’s lineage actually traces back to the Belle Meade Plantation (the setting of #ToWinHerFavor) and to a thoroughbred in my story named Bonnie Scotland. 

Enter by this Sunday night (June 14) at midnight central.
We'll post the winners (drawn at random) on our FB pages Monday morning.

I’m giving away a copy of Becky’s novel and a copy of Secretariat, the movie, to TWO lucky winners! And Becky’s giving away a copy of To Win Her Favor and a copy of Secretariat, the movie, to TWO lucky winners.

FaithTalk LIVE - a chat with Rick & Dan

Just had a fabulous chat with Rick and Dan on FaithTalk LIVE this morning! What FUN these Atlanta guys are. Lots of joking around and a somewhat snarky, LOL, and funny moment when the term "NashVegas" was used by one of us. 

Let me know if you take a quick listen!

Apparently Dan isn't pictured below because he hasn't been working out enough, LOL. Listen to the interview and you'll understand.

$2.99 e-book To Whisper Her Name

My Belle Meade Plantation novel To Whisper Her Name is currently on sale for $2.99. If you've read it and enjoyed it, I'd so appreciate you passing this sale along to your book group and reader friends. Thanks for reading—and sharing! 

About the book: 

Olivia Aberdeen, destitute widow of a man shot as a traitor to the South, is shunned by proper society and gratefully accepts an invitation from "Aunt" Elizabeth Harding, mistress of Belle Meade Plantation. Expecting to be the Harding's head housekeeper, Olivia is disillusioned when she learns the real reason Elizabeth's husband, Confederate General William Giles Harding, agreed to her coming. Not finding the safe haven she expects, Olivia is caught off guard by her feelings for Ridley Adam Cooper, a Southern man who seems anything but a Southern gentleman.

Branded a traitor by some, Ridley Cooper, a Southern son who chose to fight for the Union, is a man desperate to end the war still raging inside him. Determined to learn "the gift" that Belle Meade's head horse trainer and former slave, Bob Green, possesses, Ridley harbors secrets that threaten both their lives.

As Ridley seeks to make peace within himself for "betraying" the South he loved, Olivia is determined to never be betrayed again.

Set at Nashville's historic Belle Meade Plantation, the most influential thoroughbred stud farm in America's history, To Whisper Her Name weaves the struggles of real people of the post-war South with the journeys of a man and a woman scarred by betrayal.

What others are saying:

"Pure reading pleasure."
Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times best-selling author of Mine Is the Night

"Deeply satisfying, both to my heart and my soul."
Christy Jordan, Southern Plate

"Beautiful. Powerful. Stirring. Written on my heart for all time."
Cindy Woodsmall, New York Times best-selling author of Sisters of the Quilt series

Cullen and Maggie, Uncle Bob, Ennis, Kizzy, Onnie, General Harding and the many other characters who populate this novel have filled my heart for over two years now. 

I'd love to hear from you as you read!
