Merry Christmas from Long Valley Idaho Erin Wright

Jasmine the Writing Cat is disgusted with Erin Wright

Well, so my Wright's Wednesday Recs email is...a little late. Whoops! Even my cat is covering her eyes in disgust. 😉 I'm blaming this one on my husband, who insisted yesterday that I take a break from my computer and more importantly, a break from the internet (which was on the fritz yesterday, causing me...great consternation. My wifi router and I were not good friends yesterday). He convinced me to instead play the Farming Game with him.

I actually talk about the Farming Game in Blizzard of Love but just briefly - did you guys catch that? I just had to put it in because that's one of my husband and I's favorite games to play. I just looked it up on Amazon to see how much it costs - oh my goodness, $38 + $14 in shipping. *cue screaming* That's really too bad because it's a fun game, especially when I can beat my husband at it. 😀 I'll be honest, any game is fun that I can beat my husband at...

Well anyway, the internet seems to be behaving itself better today, so I figure sending out the newsletter a day late will be better than nothing, right?

Only one book for you today - it's actually the second book in the series I talked about last week. Cate is a terrific author, and this second book just hit the shelves, so even if you haven't read the first one, you should pick up the second one anyway. 😉 They're all standalone novels, so they don't have to be read in order (although it's always recommended!)

A Crazy Reunion by Cate Baylor

A Crazy Reunion by Cate BaylorRaney Hoffman eloped with her high school sweetheart believing they’d found their happy ever after, but her world crashed down around her when he left after less than two years of marriage. Nearly twenty years later he’s back in town. Her broken heart tells her she should still hate the jerk. But her traitorous body surges into sexual overdrive at the sight of him. 

Rob Coleman was devoted to Raney the moment they met in high school. After they married, his twin brother died unexpectedly and Rob’s grief thrust him into an identity crisis he couldn’t recover from. The decisions he made in that haze of grief have haunted him for nearly twenty years. Now he’s back and completely befuddled by the strength of his response to seeing Raney again.

They rebuilt their lives without the other but their unexpected reunion makes it clear their history is far from over.

New - only $2.99!

Jasmine the Writing CatSo are y'all getting the snow in your corner of the world like we are here? Jasmine the Writing Cat has decided that there's no reason for her to ever get off my lap again because there's cold and snow and wet things out in the big, bad world that she wants absolutely nothing to do with. She likes to go outside and explore...six months of the year.

I don't really blame her - I'm a lot like her. I like to sit and watch the snow come down, as if I'm living in a giant snow globe. I've decided that being an author is a great profession for people who live in snowy climates.

On the writing front, my cover designer is in the middle of designing the cover for the free novella that you, dear reader, will receive completely free, simply as a thank you for hanging out with me. The early mock-ups look great - I can't wait to show you the final cover!

While you're waiting for another Long Valley novel 🙂 here are some other books to check out!

A Crazy Homecoming by Cate Baylor

A Crazy Homecoming by Cate BaylorAfter a boardroom meltdown, Daphne Simms gets dumped and fired by her boss-slash-lover. Humiliated and adrift, she runs to the only true home she's ever known--her grandmother's rural Texas ranch, called Crazy. She knows a ranch is a far cry from corporate life, but she certainly doesn't expect to be greeted by a cranky, sexy cowboy shoving a shotgun in her face.

Mick Williams has lived and worked on Crazy for twenty years. Though he's utterly devoted to Daphne's grandmother, he'll be damned if he's gonna let a city slicker like Daphne sashay in and disrupt his nice, quiet life. When the future of Crazy is threatened, Mick and Daphne must work together to keep the ranch afloat, but the heat of their attraction makes it more complicated than either of them imagines.

When their physical and emotional connection deepens, Mick tries to turn away from the woman he's convinced he doesn't deserve, so Daphne has to pull out all the stops to convince him that the heart of Crazy is big enough for the both of them.
