The drawings end Sunday (April 8th) evening.

Bio for Naomi Rawlings:

A mother of two young boys, Naomi Rawlings spends her days picking up, cleaning, playing and, of course, writing. Her husband pastors a small church in Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula, where her family shares its ten wooded acres with black bears, wolves, coyotes, deer and bald eagles. Naomi and her family live only three miles from Lake Superior, where the scenery is beautiful and they average 200 inches of snow per winter. Naomi writes bold, dramatic stories containing passionate words and powerful journeys. 

Blurb for Sanctuary for a Lady by Naomi Rawlings:

Running to freedom, she found love . . .

The injured young woman that Michel Belanger finds in the woods is certainly an aristocrat, and in the midst of France’s bloody revolution, sheltering nobility merits a trip to the guillotine. Yet despite the risk, Michel knows he must bring the wounded girl to his cottage to heal.

Attacked by soldiers and left for dead, Isabelle de La Rouchecauld has lost everything. A duke’s daughter cannot hope for mercy in France, so escaping to England is her best chance of survival. The only thing more dangerous than staying would be falling in love with this gruff yet tender man of the land. Even if she sees, for the first time, how truly noble a heart can be . . .

Bio for Susan Page Davis:

Susan Page Davis is the author of 40 novels and novellas, in the historical romance, mystery, and romantic suspense genres. A Maine native, she now lives in western Kentucky. She’s a past winner of the Carol Award and Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award.

Blurb for Lady Anne’s Quest, by Susan Page Davis: 

Lady Anne believes her prayers are answered and she’s at last found her long lost uncle. Unwilling to let her meet him on her own, Dan Adams accompanies her to her uncle’s ranch. But instead of answers, Anne is left with more questions. Both Dan and Anne are convinced the man introduced as her uncle is an impostor and decide to continue the search for the new Earl of Stoneford.

But now the swindler is on their trail, hoping to steal Uncle David’s inheritance. Dan has his hands full trying to protect Anne, but he finds he must guard his heart just as carefully. Even though he’s good at keeping her safe, he knows he’ll never convince Anne to become a farmer’s wife in Oregon when she has her sights set on returning to her home in England. But as Anne’s quest becomes even more difficult—and dangerous—she begins to see Dan differently. Will she soon be envisioning a new life in America?

Bio for Rebecca Ondov:

Rebecca Ondov spent 15 years on horseback leading horse pack trips and doing work for the U.S. Forest Service in the Bob Marshall Wilderness of Montana. She is the founder of Blazing Ink, inc. and the author of several books and numerous magazine articles. Rebecca enjoys her menagerie of horses, mules, a barn cat, and a dog. She lives with her family in Western Montana and hits the trail as often as possible.

Blurb for Heavenly Horse Sense by Rebecca Ondov:

Following on the hooves of her well-received book Horse Tales from Heaven (nearly 30,000 copies sold since its June 2010 release), horsewoman Rebecca Ondov offers 50 brand-new devotions gleaned from her years of working from the saddle in Montana. Heavenly Horse Sense features horse and trail stories that reveal God’s majesty, His love for His creation, and how He helps believers become more like Christ. Readers will enjoy stories that show how…

  • naming horses and mules reflects God’s joy in His unique creations
  • a farrier’s skill and forge mimic God’s work on our character
  • a horse’s homing instinct is a great reminder that God is our perfect guide
  • a goof-off mule shows God is always present and working behind the scenes
  • rain-soaked boots highlight Jesus’ foot-washing message of servanthood

Each story focuses on how much God loves us and how He always follows through on His promises. Wrapping up each devotion is a brief prayer thanking God for His constant presence and care.

Bio for Cynthia Simmons:

Blurb for Struggles and Triumphs: Women in History Who Overcame by Cynthia Simmons:

What’s wrong with our world? Shouldn’t a God who claims to be all powerful and flawless prevent suffering? How can we continue to believe when storms rage on in our lives? If you’ve ever had tough questions like these Struggles and Triumphs Study Guide is the book for you. Author Cynthia L. Simmons will guide you toward answers with her unique and enlightening approach. Her twelve-week Bible study for ladies comes from stories of real women as told in Struggles and Triumphs: Women in History Who Overcame. As you study, you’ll come to understand God’s perspective on timeless issues that impact your life. The carefully chosen Scriptures combined with interesting historical information will challenge and encourage you.
