I'm just so proud to give you a sneak preview of my book coming out in June. The art department of Revell has done another wonderful job. Here's a little blurb about the story line.
April McBride has suffered a broken engagement once before and fully intends to guard her heart when she travels to Lewistown, Montana, to attend her brother's wedding. One look around the small mining town convinces April that this won't be difficult--just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with a horse trainer named Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration, embarrassment, friendship, and . . . love?

Can April and Wes see past their differences in order to envision a future together?

Readers will love going on this adventurous, spark-filled ride through turn-of-the-century Montana.

Releasing June, 2010
Oh man, I can just see this as a movie. Hallmark, where are you?
Happy Trails

Oh I'm loving the cover for this one too! I can't wait to read about Wes and April! I really learned to like Wes and I hope I can do the same with April! Kudos to the team at Revell for their awesome covers!

At first, I didn't really like Wes, but you were right...he did start to grow on me...I liked him by the end of the book. :p I can't wait to see the sparks fly between him and April! hee hee

Both covers are gorgeous and you're right they'd make wonderful Hallmark movies.

Carla and Tina,

Thanks for stopping by. I really could see my covers as artwork for a TNT or Hallmark. Now wouldn't that be something???

Carla Gade said...

Yes, that's what it reminds me of . . . the Love Comes Softly series movies. Yes, wouldn't that be something. Every historical writer's dream!

I'm looking forward to this. It will be interesting it see how you "redeemed" April!!

I'm also exciting as to what your future books will be. I love your writing style.

Hallmark Movie? Dream big!! It might happen!

Maggie Brendan said...

Thank you for your kind remarks. I think you'll enjoy A Love of Her Own, too. It's a bit more fast pace, though. Thanks for stopping by.

ooooo, a blonde!
As I rather dislike Wes, it will be interesting to see if you can "win me over"!
I look forward to the new book...the only problem, is that I have to wait so long!

Maggie Brendan said...

Lynne-June will be here before you know it! Wes just needs to find true love an he will have met his match. It's a much more fun story. :)

Will you email me, please?
