​Connie ​Kuykendall’s ​Love Ain’t No Soap Opera
Ms. Kuykendall’s novel will release February 14th!

Purchase: Amazon

The Blurb: “Ahh, soap opera … the land where women are strong, cherished, and cellulite-free, loved ones are never really dead, and irritating people can be recast.

​If there is one lesson that Selah Morgan has learned from years of watching daytime drama, it’s that life is more exciting if you are young, rich, and skinny. Praying for that kind of life, the thirty-something fears she’ll suffocate if she can’t escape her hick hometown, Shadybrook, Virginia, her plus-size body, her failing business, and her feuding parents.

​It’s almost too good to be true when she wins a trip to New York City and the opportunity to be the “SoaperFan” for her favorite show, The Winds of Change, ​as part of a publicity stunt. As she and troubled soap hunk, Cane Ashton, work together to save the struggling soap from cancellation, can she trust his growing affections or will her insecurities and her meddling momma cost her a dream job and a chance at love in the afternoon?”

Lena Nelson Dooley’s Giveaway (#2)
Author Lena Nelson Dooley is hosting a giveaway on her Blog for a chance to win a copy of Terri Blackstock’s ​If I Run.

​Snippet of the Blurb: “Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.

But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?”

Author Lena Nelson Dooley is hosting a giveaway on her Blog for a chance to win a copy of Shelley Shepard Gray’s A Son’s Vow.

​Snippet of the Blurb: “Three months ago, everything changed for Darla Kurtz and her family. Darla’s father was responsible for a terrible fire at Charm’s lumber mill which killed five Amish men. And though he, too, lost his life, the town of Charm hasn’t looked at her family the same since. Even Lukas Kinsinger—with whom Darla used to have a close friendship.

Now her brother’s anger at the town is spilling over onto Darla, and she has the bruises to prove it. The accident already cost five lives, but if something doesn’t change soon, Darla fears it will cost her—and her family—even more.”

Her last encounter with one left her right hand crushed, ending her promising career as a concert pianist. But as she heads to Rainbow’s End Resort, a sudden thunderstorm causes a motorcycle to crash in front of her.

When TJ Benjamin’s wife died, he lost more than his best friend; he lost his faith. He’s spent the past year wandering the country on a motorcycle, trying not to think about his future. When he finds himself stranded with a busted bike and a reluctant rescuer, he has to wonder about God’s sense of humor.

Can this woman without a future and this man running from his past find romance in the present? Or are they too tied to the way life used to be?“
