HIS BALLERINA BRIDE

by Teri Wilson

Debonair Artem Drake has had tongues wagging all over New York since he became surprise CEO of Drake Diamonds.

This playboy hopes to bring new life to the storied old business before those rumored bad investments sink the family ship.

He’s even plucked an ambitious salesgirl out of the shadows to become the store’s new star designer. But Ophelia Rose isn’t the ingénue she seems.

The swanlike beauty’s hiding a past that glimmers as bright as a Drake diamond—she once graced the stage as a professional ballerina, until she was forced to take her final curtsy and hide from the limelight.

Now can Artem bring her back to center stage? Or will their glittering future together wither under the secrets of the past?

His Ballerina Bride really shows readers that the road to love isn’t always perfect but it is always rewarding. Readers will see my characters going through some very real, very heartbreaking struggles that most of my past characters haven’t had to deal with. It gives this story an incredibly raw, relatable romance that people will absolutely fall in love with. I cannot wait for you to meet Ophelia and Artem.

Montana Cowboy Family

By Linda Ford

After discovering one of her young students and his sisters have been abandoned, schoolteacher Sadie Young whisks them away to the safest place she knows—her own home. And when handsome cowboy Logan Marshal vows to assist her in caring for the children, she isn’t sure she wants his help…but she needs it. If she lets Logan get too close, though, he may discover the secret she’s convinced will be her ruin.

Logan Marshall isn’t looking for a family. But with the parentless children and their unflappable teacher tugging at his heart, it appears he has one—at least temporarily. The kids would like nothing better than to have a real mother and father, and with Logan slowly falling for Sadie, their deepest wishes just might come true…

I like to think that this story contained many life lessons. For instance, we should not let our past define us and we can use painful lessons to help us make better choices. It took Logan’s clear vision of right and wrong for Sadie to understand that she was hurt, not ruined. I love it when Logan thinks, ‘Someone should have held and comforted her four years ago. Someone should have assured her she was blameless. He planned to spend the rest of his life doing that if she would let him.’ Is there anything more romantic than having someone recognize our heart-deep need and do what they can to meet it?


LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn’t sleep. But she hadn’t planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer
