Blurb for Mistaken by Karen Barnett:

Since alcohol and Prohibition have made criminals out of every man in her world, Laurie Burke resolves to find at least one honorable man. Convinced that the handsome newcomer, Daniel Shepherd, is connected with her brother’s rum running gang, Laurie scratches his name off the list. Federal agent Samuel Brown might be the answer to her prayers—or her worst nightmare.

WhispersOnThePrairie Final Medium sizeBio of Vickie McDonough: 

Vickie McDonough grew up reading horse stories and dreaming of marrying a rancher, instead, she married a computer geek who is scared of horses. But those old dreams have found new life as she pens stories of ranchers, lawmen, and others living in the Old West. Vickie is the award-winning author of 27 books and novellas. Her novel, End of the Trail recently won Best Fiction Novel in the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation Inc’s 2013 contest, and Long Trail Home won the 2012 Booksellers’ Best Award for Inspirational Fiction. Her books have also won the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Contest, Texas Gold, the ACFW Noble Theme contest, and she has been a multi-year finalist in ACFW’s BOTY/Carol Awards. Vickie and her husband of 37 years live in Oklahoma and are the parents of four grown sons.

Blurb of Whispers on the Prairie by Vickie McDonough:

When Sarah Marshall’s wagon breaks down near a stage stop at the mouth of the Santa Fe Trail, marriage proposals fly in faster than the incessant wind, but only one man interests her—and he’s not proposing.

Ethan Harper’s well-ordered life is throw into turmoil when an uppity city gal is stranded at his family’s stage stop. Now his two brothers and every unmarried male in the country are wooing Miss Priss. When one brother proposes, Ethan struggles. Is it because Sarah is the wrong woman for his brother—or the right one for Ethan?
