Debby Mayne’s bio:

Author and speaker Debby Mayne grew up in a military family, which meant moving every few years throughout her childhood. Debby was born in Alaska, and she has lived in Mississippi, Tennessee, Oregon, Florida, Hawaii, and Japan. Her comfort foods are as diverse as her interests. You might find her eating sushi while reading a cozy mystery novel or fried catfish while watching a Tampa Bay Buccaneers football game.
Her husband of almost 30 years has accepted the fact that outside of her faith and family, books are the most important thing in her life. She and Wally have two grown daughters, Lauren and Alison, a son-in-law, Jason, and a granddaughter.
Debby has published 16 books, more than 400 short stories and articles, 6 novellas that have been printed in 7 anthologies, and a slew of devotions for busy women. She has also worked as managing editor of a national health magazine, product information writer for a TV retailer, a creative writing instructor, and a copy editor and proofreader for several book publishers. Debby currently enjoys writing Christian fiction, which allows her the freedom to tell stories without restraining her convictions.
She lives on Florida’s west coast with her husband and two cats. To learn more about Debby, visit her website at

Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida‘s Blurb:
Every year, Jerry Simpson rents a bicycle-built-for-two from Amanda Burns at her store in Treasure Island, Florida. Between Jerry’s parents’ well-meaning interference and Amanda’s family responsibilities, there seems to be no hope for taking their relationship beyond the attraction stage. However, Gramps and his little friend Timmy have ways of turning everyone’s lives upside down.

Mary Connealy’s bio:

Mary Connealy, author of the Lassoed in Texas series. Montana Rose it the first book in a new series of romantic comedies with cowboys. She also has a cozy mystery newly released called Nosy in Nebraska. A lighthearted romantic comedy murder mystery where nobody gets hurt. . except for the dead guy.
And she has a stand alone Christmas romance coming in September called Cowboy Christmas.
Mary is married to her high school sweetheart, Ivan, a Nebraska farmer/rancher. She is the mother of four beautiful daughters Josie, married to Matt, Wendy, Shelly, married to Aaron and Katy. She’s got one beautiful granddaughter, Elle.

Montana Rose‘s Blurb:
Left pregnant and widowed in the unforgiving west, Cassie is forced into an unwanted marriage to rancher Red Dawson. No decent man could turn away from Cassie and leave her to the rough men in Divide, Montana. Red Dawson can’t turn his back on the spoiled, snooty, beautiful woman. Now he’s got himself a wife he’s sure God never intended. And when he informs her there’ll be no more silk dresses and she has to do some work around the ranch he’s surprised she immediately tries to help with everything. Too bad she’s a walking disaster. His ranch may not survive her efforts to pitch in.
Now, instead of a spoiled wife he’s got himself an overly obedient and badly incompetent one, and poor Red is so charmed by her he can’t bear to scold. He’s not much for bossing people around, anyway.
While Red tries to survive Cassie’s help and Cassie tries to use her own mind instead of meekly obeying for the first time in her life, an obsessed man plots to make Cassie his own, something he can’t do as long as Red lives.
Montana Rose was actually inspired by Janette Oke’s beautiful classic novel Love Comes Softly, only with romantic comedy, mayhem and gunfire. Which make it, I guess, Love Comes Loudly, or Love Hardly, or maybe Love Comes. . .Unfortunately.
