What I'm looking forward to reading next month. My friend Renee Ryan's first inspirational historical, THE MARSHAL TAKES A BRIDE from Silhouette Love Inspired. Renee was the first New Historical Voice winner for Dorchester Publishing and wrote under the name of Renee Halverson.
She's now writing inspirational historicals, and she's a terrific writer who brings lots of emotion to her stories.
Here's the blurb, and isn't the cover lovely?
True Hero Never Leaves a Damsel in Distress--He Marries Her!

U.S. Marshal Trey Scott is fixin' to walk down the aisle just as soon as his stubborn bride-to-be agrees to say "I do." Katherine Taylor's five-year-old sister and an orphanage full of children are depending on her. So why won't the pretty schoolteacher marry him to save her tarnished reputation? Granted, Trey isn't willing to abandon his quest to avenge his first wife's murder. His name alone will protect Katherine until he returns, but she thinks he should leave vengeance to a higher power. Will the sacrifice demanded by the woman he loves be too great to bear...or will it be Trey's ultimate redemption?

Oh, Bonnie,

You are a total SWEETHEART. Thank you for highlighting my February release today. Did you notice it's been seven years between book releases? Do we call that persistence or stubborness???

Renee, this looks wonderful, and I can't wait to curl up in this frigid weather and enjoy reading it!

Renee, have I told you how proud I am of you, and how you're my heroine for your determination and your persistence? You rock!

Hey Gillian, trust me, Renee is a wonderful, wonderful writer, and her books make you feel as if you are there, and engage your heart!
