Bio for Jean C. Gordon:

Jean C. Gordon’s writing is a natural extension of her love of reading. From that day in first grade when she realized t-h-e was the word “the,” she’s been reading everything she can put her hands on. A professional financial planner and editorial supervisor for a financial publisher in Albany, NY, Jean is as at home writing retirement- and investment-planning advice as she is writing romance novels, but finds novels a lot more fun.

She and her college-sweetheart husband tried the city life in Los Angeles, but quickly returned home to their native Upstate New York. They share a 170-year-old farmhouse just south of Albany with their daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a menagerie of pets. Their son lives nearby. While Jean creates stories, her family grows organic fruits and vegetables and tends the livestock de jour.

Although her day job, writing and family don’t leave her a lot of spare time, Jean likes to give back when she can. She and her husband team-taught a seventh-and-eighth-grade Sunday school class for several years and currently serve on her church’s Evangelism Committee. She also shares her love of books with others by volunteering at the church’s Book Nook.

Book blurb for Small-Town Sweethearts:

With the help of God and the love of Drew Stacey, a down-sized Wall Street analyst turned church camp manager, NYC assistant art director and former town misfit Emily, ne Jinx, Hazard finds the thing she wants most in the place she least wants to be — Paradox Lake. Through having to be responsible for her niece, interaction with the town’s people, and falling in love with Drew, she learns the meaning of Christian fellowship.

Bio for Margaret Daley:

Margaret Daley, an award-winning author of eighty-two books, has been married for over forty years and is a firm believer in romance and love. When she isn’t traveling, she’s writing love stories, often with a suspense thread and corralling her three cats that think they rule her household.

Deadly Race is an out of print book she has re-issued as an ebook only. It was written as a contemporary romance in the secular market. It is a sweet romance with suspense. It is offered on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Blurb for Deadly Race:

A romp through a snake-infested, vine-twisted terrain isn’t exactly Ellie Winters’ idea of fun. She hates animals that slither and the vines wreak havoc on her body. The one redeeming feature of her latest adventure–and she must admit she hasn’t been on one quite so dangerous–is Slade Calvert. He makes her heart beat faster. He makes her forget that she doesn’t trust men easily.

Slade is amazed at his attraction toward Ellie, not the physical part because she is gorgeous but the emotional one. He wants to protect her, shield her from any pain. Those feelings he must fight. He has no intentions of marrying again.
