“A Cowboy for Katie” by Debra Clopton

Katie Pearl is uninterested in men and love. But she needs help on her ranch and hires Treb Rayburn, a wandering cowboy looking to make a buck. Will Treb change Katie’s mind?

“Spitfire Sweetheart” by Mary Connealy

Maizy Place is an unruly tomboy. When she causes an accident, injuring neighbor Rylan Carstens, she becomes his unlikely caregiver. Rylan has never noticed how pretty his infuriating neighbor is, and he never expected to fall in love.

“Love Letter to the Editor” by Robin Lee Hatcher

Molly Everton is the outspoken daughter of the town newspaper’s owner. When her father brings in an outsider to be editor, she tries to drive him out of town. But Jack Ludgrove is not intimidated. He’s resolved to change Molly’s mind about him–as an editor and as a man.

“Courting Trouble” by Margaret Brownley

Grace Davenport is either the unluckiest woman alive–or a killer. When her third husband is found dead, Grace is arrested. Attorney Brock Daniels isn’t interested in the case–until he meets Grace. Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace.

Blurb for Undercover Marriage by Terri Reed:


An illegal adoption ring—using kidnapped babies—has to be stopped. To gather the necessary evidence, U.S. marshal Serena Summers goes undercover—as a married woman desperate for a baby. Her “husband” is her own partner, U.S. marshal Josh McCall, whom Serena blames for her brother’s death. How can she act like a loving wife when she has to constantly fight her feelings for a man she isn’t sure she can trust? The closer they get to unraveling the dark web of deceit, though, the more being Josh’s undercover wife means putting her life—and future—in his hands.

Witness Protection: Hiding in plain sight

loveinspiredtrrbewBio of Mary Alford:


Mary Alford grew up in a small Texas town famous for, well not much of anything, really. Being the baby of the family and quite a bit younger than her brothers and sister, Mary had plenty of time to entertain herself. Making up stories seem to come natural to her. As a pre-teen, Mary discovered writing and knew instinctively that was what she wanted to do with her over-active imagination. She wrote her first novel as a teen, (it’s tucked away somewhere never to see the light of day), but never really pursued her writing career seriously until a few years later, when she wrote her first inspirational romantic suspense and was hooked.Today, Mary still lives in Texas with her husband and still writes about romance. In fact, she can’t think of anything else she’d rather do. You can visit Mary at her website: or email her at


Blurb for Forgotten Past by Mary Alford:

Faith McKenzie was the only survivor of a brutal home invasion. Viciously attacked and left for dead, Faith can’t remember anything about that night—including the identity of the killer. All she knows is that he’s stalking her from every place she flees and has tracked her to a small Maine island. Her neighbor, private investigator and security specialist JT Wyatt, rescues her twice. Now JT is insisting on the whole story—a story that Faith can’t remember. Desperate to feel safe, Faith puts her trust in the handsome P.I. Yet a killer is dead set on ensuring that Faith’s memory never returns.


  1. Thank you.

    The selection this week looks fantastic.


  2. This is a must for me. Enjoy everything from these authors.

  3. I would be most interested in winning Terri Reed’s book Undercover Marriage. It’s the last in the Witness Protection series and I tried to buy it this weekend and WalMart had only four of this month’s LIS titles and of course Terri’s book wasn’t one of them. 🙁 I was very sad.

    I have already read Four Weddings and a Kiss and it was a great read. I wouldn’t mind being entered for Forgotten Past as I do love the LIS line of books.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win! 🙂

    😀 Smiles & Blessings,
    Cindy W.
