About the Author
 
Western Romance has always been my first love but I also write hot contemporary romance under my pen name A.L. Simpson.
 
In my Western, I love to write about knock ’em down – drag ’em out fights, outlaws, bank robbery, stage hold-ups and romance.
 
In my Contemporary’s I write f/m, m/m and m/m/f. I usually draw on experiences for these and they usually cause more than a few tears for the readers.
 
When I’m not writing I enjoy walking our dogs – 2 elderly Jack Russell Terriers – with my husband and traveling both overseas and in Australia.

Hearts and Beaus

HEARTS AND BEAUS

A Collection of Love Stories

Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance

 

Cover-Final.jpg

No two love stories are the same. In Hearts and Beaus, enjoy not one, not two, but six unique tales of finding, choosing, and appreciating love. With stories about love that heals, overcomes, endures, and surprises, this collection of contemporary romances from authors spanning several genres is a treasure trove for the hopeless romantic.

Healing Hearts by Amy Stearman

Following a terrible accident that left her widowed and with a mute son, Kate struggles to regain her sense of normalcy. Balancing the diner she runs in her small home town against the weight of her son’s needs, the last thing Kate needs is another complication.

Ben finds himself in the small town of Barton, Missouri running on fumes and his last few dollars. He has no choice but to find a way to make some money or face going back home, a prospect he’d rather avoid.

When something as simple as a misbehaving vehicle brings the two together, their spark is undeniable. However, neither of them could have prepared themselves for just how connected they truly are.

What’s Luck Got To Do With It by E.J. Whitmer

If there’s the possibility of something going wrong, Riley Bremmel is sure to draw the short straw. Half of her life has been spent in a cast or Ace bandage. She’s dated losers and liars and never seems to land on her feet. Until she meets Graham, a handsome stranger who stumbles upon her changing a flat tire on a cold night. Maybe, just maybe, her luck is turning.

Graham Moore is the luckiest man in the Midwest. And, lucky him, he happens to be in the right place at the right time to rescue a damsel in distress. However, as time passes, his luck falters. The closer he gets to Riley, the more things turn against him. After learning of the Moore Family Curse, is it worth losing his luck to win his love?

The Extraordinary Ordinary by Elise Barker

Eva has it all: a good relationship with her husband Charlie, two goofy kids, a solid career, and a comfortable house. But a series of misunderstandings threaten to disrupt her happy normality. Shaken out of their routine and escaping to the woods in an ever-escalating comedy of errors, Eva and Charlie must work together in mutual trust to protect their family from forces outside their control. In the isolation of a rustic cabin, facing increasingly real dangers, Eva and Charlie rediscover the passion that had been missing from their snug yet mundane existence, and learn to appreciate The Extraordinary Ordinary.

105 Reasons by Erin Grosfield

Zoe is living her best life. After inheriting her grandparents’ farmhouse in her tiny hometown, she builds a thriving wedding venue in the old barn. Every day greets her with tranquility and laughs with her faithful, larger-than-life Great Dane. She has everything she needs.

Wyatt loves his penthouse life in the city, his world travels and his money. But with all his success, he has to admit he finds himself lonely and unfulfilled.

When a chance encounter brings their worlds together, will they be able to choose between the lives they know and their unexpected, inescapable longing to be together?

Something Beige by Megan Nelson

Paige is used to going unnoticed. When you’re a little plain and a lot introverted it comes with the territory. Trying to stay optimistic and true to herself, Paige looks for someone who values the natural over the fake, who understands there’s more to a person than meets the eye.

Losing yet another guy to a superficial beauty is the last straw. If all men prefer flash to substance, then she’s done with them. Fostering unwanted cats helps her feel needed and appreciated even if it doesn’t fill every corner of her heart. With all her focus on animal rescue, Paige is unaware that love is closer than she thinks.

If Only by Mica Rossi

Grant Richardson wasn’t looking for love, and certainly not in the silly castle on an island that shouldn’t exist. He was, after all, a lawyer. He didn’t believe in fairytales or pixie dust. Maggie Chalvis had dreamed of love but never expected it. She lived alone, with only her father and his secretary for company, confined to the castle created once upon a time for her enchanting mother.

Two solitary souls traveling in singular orbits. One grand master orchestrating their meeting. And just a little bit of Valentine magic.

Amy Stearman is an avid reader and writer of stories, hailing from the Midwest. She lives in the liberal mecca of Kansas with her husband, young son, and ornery Sheltie.

Amy holds her bachelors degrees in Human Services and Victim Studies, and a Masters degree in Social Work. That might sound pretty cool, but she accidentally ended up in marketing.

When she’s not chasing her six year old or attempting DIY home improvement, she’s jotting down story ideas and dreaming big.

Mica Rossi has been writing since she was in the second grade and barely able to form her letters properly. Her first book, Once in a Blue Moon, is a paranormal romance and was selected as a spearhead novel for Melange Books’ White Satin Romance line. Her second published work, Heart Songs, is a collection of short stories and poetry about the human heart and all its boundless emotions. Other works have been featured in several anthologies, and she’s furiously scribbling through various drafts of her second full-length novel, a contemporary romance set during the Christmas season.

Now working as a paralegal to pay the bills, Mica hopes to someday make writing her full-time career. Of her own stories, she says, “I love the juxtaposition of an urban setting against elements of magick or faerie, demons, ghosts or mythical creatures. There’s something that draws me to those pockets of our universe where the laws of physics can be ignored, or at least trifled with. If Only… is one of those stories.”

Rainbows in the Moonlight

RAINBOWS IN THE MOONLIGHT

by Ryan Jo Summers

Genre: Christian Romance

Koda Jacobs urgently needs a nanny. Right now.

Fresh from prison, Dalton Clayton needs a job—and just about anything will do.

Divine Intervention steps in and tosses Koda and Dalton together. Koda struggles with the conflicts of her impulsive decision to leave her babies with an unknown, convicted felon. That just can’t be wise, can it? But she can’t help but see how quickly the children bonded to him and trust him. Or the reassuring sense that this is just right.

Meanwhile, Dalton stumbles through the spills and thrills of two young children, and his growing interest in their mother. A chance meeting brings him back to his estranged family as well.

Over time mutual attraction forms between Koda and Dalton as the bond between Dalton and the children deepens. A sweet, southern romance full of forgiveness, second chances, and fun kids.

“Guess what I got today at work?,” Koda said. “My winter raffle prize.”

“It’s springtime.”

She shrugged. “It’s late in coming.” She explained about the heirloom casting. “I have the brochure inside. Apparently the idea is to have the family members do something like join hands or somehow get into a position while the artist makes a plaster cast. Once it’s dried and detailed, the end result is a permanent item. I guess people do baby’s feet and hands, joined hands for families, paw prints, whatever is important to each family. One of our doctors went there with her husband for their anniversary and had their joined hands finished in bronze. That’s how the company got involved with the raffle. I had thought to do the kid’s hands somehow. So I need to call and get a sitting scheduled for the kids.”

“And you, Mommy,” Ruthie declared, having run up while Koda was describing the casting. “You gotta sit with us and be casted.”

“Yes, probably. Certainly. Though I had originally thought of just you two.”

“What about Dalton?” Terry asked as the puppy danced between his feet.

Koda and Dalton exchanged startled looks.

“You said family. He’s family.”

Pink touched his cheeks as his surprised, embarrassed look met hers. Koda wondered if she was blushing as much as he was. Hopefully not.

“Well, Terry, guys.” She faltered, scrambling for something to say. “Family in this sense is usually . . .”

“Saved for mommies and daddies and kids,” Dalton supplied. “Blood family.”

Ruthie wrinkled up her nose and Terry tilted his head, watching the puppy chew his shoe. “But you’re here every day, doing things with us. We spent Sunday with your blood family. Don’t that make you family too?”

Koda felt tears pricking her eyes at her son’s assessment of family. She wanted to hug him. Dalton beat her to it.

“Come here, Buddy.” He knelt down, beckoning both to his side. “You too, Cricket. Now look, family is the people you came from, that you’re a part of.”

“You’re part of us.”

He smiled at Ruthie’s words, and Koda put her fist to her mouth to keep from crying. The tenderness of the scene rocked her like only those three could do. Her children’s honesty and innocence left her weak. Dalton’s gentleness left her breathless.

“You’re right. I’m a part of you, both of you, but I am not family. That’s your mama and your grandmama. Just like my mama and daddy and sisters are my family. And Carlos and the boys become our family when Carlos married my sister and they had the boys. That’s how you make a family.”

Terry and Ruthie stared at each other. Ruthie grabbed Dalton’s hand and shook it. “You can marry Mommy and then be our family for real.”

A sob escaped Koda and Dalton glanced up at her, puzzlement in his eyes.

Ryan Jo Summers is a North Carolina writer who pens romances with a twist. They may contain any number of elements: Christian, humor, mystery, paranormal, sweet, shape-shifting, or time travel. Her dad is a songwriter and his aunt wrote poetry so writing must be in the family genes.

She makes her home in a century-old mountain cottage, with a menagerie of adopted pets. In her spare time, she likes to gather with family and friends, paint ceramics or canvas, potter in the yard, bird-watching, or read, play chess, Mahjongg or work word-find puzzles. She might take her dog and head deep into the forests and rivers near her home to plot the next big scene or story. Like her dad’s aunt, she writes poetry as a means to cope with life’s pains.

She collects lighthouses, shells, driftwood, and anything to remind her of the shore.

Missing Home

Title: Missing Home
Author: Stephany Tullis
Genre: Literature & Fiction – Religious & Inspirational Fiction – Inspirational
Contemporary Fiction – Religious – Christian – Clean Romance
Publisher: Diamond TK Publishing
Blurb:
When Dr. Jared Johnson’s research project collapses, so does he. He tosses the funding rejection letter in his office wastebasket and his plans to marry the love of his life out the window.
The last thing he wants to do is return to his home town, Chandlerville, Kentucky. An unexpected call from his grandmother, a lifelong resident of the small town, convinces him that all things indeed happen for a reason and perhaps this is the right time to reestablish his roots and start anew.
When he arrives–single, with no intent to marry, he’s shocked to learn that the town has unanimously approved his pastoral appointment to the newly refurbished 100-year-old Baptist church. Despite his divinity training, Jared never intended to pastor a church—not when his specialty is psychological profiling. 
As fate would have it, the evil spirits that begin to permeate the town and its good-hearted citizens shortly after his arrival challenge his technical skills, experience and community relationships. To complicate matters, a local angel finds herself in the eye of the storm causing Jared to re-evaluate his past and question his future.
In my world, there is no life without writing, traveling, family, music and my love of politics. My loves and interests are central to my writing.
I published my first novel The Master’s Plan, A Novel in November 2013 (Edition 3 issued in 2016) and my first Christmas novel, 48 Hours ‘Til Christmas, in November 2014. In 2015, I released Love, Peace & Joy: 3 Short Stories.
BLUE LADY (a short story) published in February 2015 launched my first series, The Angelica Mason Series. The first full installment in this series, entitled BLUE LADY’S Sweet Dreams was released July 2016 to be followed by BLUE LADY’S Mission Impossible in 2018.
In June 2016, I launched my second series (B.B.B.) with a novella entitled, Beach Baby Blues (part of an 11 author Beach Anthology, Stories of Sun, Sand and Sea). I hope to publish the sequel in this new series, entitled, Baby Boomer Blues by July 2017.
The sequel to The Master’s Plan, entitled, Forgive, Forgotten, Forever is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2017.
           
I am pleased to partner with my friend and fellow author, PJ Fiala to sponsor the Chandler County multi-branded author series and will soon be releasing two books in this series. Missing Pieces is currently on pre-order with an April 11th 2017 release date and my second book in this new series is entitled Missing Chances and will be released in November 2017. Nine other authors will publish their books in this exciting endeavor during 2017. All books are based on our fictional towns, Chandlerville and Bourbonville Kentucky, ‘where the unbridled spirit of romance roams’.
I live in Georgia with my family where I continue to write professionally and have published on Examiner.com as Atlanta’s Society and Culture Examiner and in various health related peer review journals.
