Roxanne Rustand’s bio:

Roxanne lives in the country with her family, and a menagerie of pets that frequently find their way into her books. If not working at her day job as a registered dietitian, writing at home in her jammies, or spending time with her family, you’ll find her riding one of the family’s horses, playing with her camera, or hiding with her nose in a book.

She is the author of twenty-three romantic suspense and heart-warming relationship novels. Her first manuscript won the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart, and her second was a Golden Heart finalist. More recently, one of her books won RT Bookclub Magazine’s award for Best Superromance of 2006, and she was nominated for RT’s Career Achievement Award in 2005.

She loves to hear from readers, and can be reached through or

Deadly Competition‘s blurb:

The single mother hasn’t been found. And all her daughter, Sarah, has is her uncle. Clueless at parenting, Clint Herald seeks a loving, responsible nanny. What he finds instead is a stranger as mysterious as his sister’s disappearance. Mandy Erick is secretive and seems scared, yet she’s so good with Sarah that Clint can’t help but trust her. In fact, he even enters Mandy in the town’s Mother of the Year contest. But attention is the last thing Mandy wants. Her time in the public eye may prove just as dangerous as she fears.

Teri Wilson’s bio:

Romancing the pet-lover’s soul

Teri’s son once wrote in a third-grade paper, “My Mom loves dogs and Jesus.” He may have gotten the order reversed, but the sentiment was right on target. Her romance stories are often filled with happy endings, splashes of humor and a loveable critter or two. After all, Cinderella never would have lived happily ever after without a little help from her animal friends!

Teri is thrilled to be the grand prize winner of the 2009 San Antonio Romance Authors Merritt Contest for her inspirational romance Rodeo Redemption. Both Rodeo Redemption and her other inspirational romance, Cup of Joe, are finalists in the Contemporary Romance category. Teri recently signed a contract for Cup of Joe with White Rose Publishing, so be on the lookout for Cup of Joe later this year! Rodeo Redemption is still in progress.

Teri is also the winner of the 2008 Pet Sitters International Humor Writing Award, the 2008 Spaniel Journal Writing Contest, the 2006 Westminster Kennel Club Angel on a Leash Writing Award and the 3rd place winner of the 21st Annual American Kennel Club Short Fiction Contest. She lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband, son and three delightful dogs. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at or via email at

Love, Lilies & the Unbroken Straw‘s blurb:

Christabel Wilde’s life has just turned upside-down. With little more than the clothes on her back and her newly rescued Chihuahua tucked under her arm, she makes a pledge to start over and applies for a job as a groom at a horse rescue farm. Nevermind that she’s never been up close to a horse before, she has a bigger secret to hide. A mysterious gift her new neighbor, Dr. Declan Armstrong, is determined to uncover. When the irresistible veterinarian volunteers to give her riding lessons, Christabel knows it could be the end of her secret. With the Easter holiday approaching, she tries to remember that sometimes what looks like the end is really a new beginning.
