ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Ronie has been married since 1990 to a man who can easily be defined in classic terms as a hero. She has four beautiful children. Her eldest daughter is 16 this year, her second daughter will be 13, and her twin boys are 10. After having four children, she finally finished her degree in December 2006. She now has a B.S. in Psychology through Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Getting her degree is a huge triumph for both her and her family–they survived!!

This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they’ll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series began in July 2010 from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.

This is the second book in the series.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Step into the boots of a former Marine in this heart-pounding adventure in life and love. Colton “Cowboy” Neeley is a Marine trying to find his footing as he battles flashbacks now that he’s back home. Piper Blum is a woman in hiding—from life and the assassins bent on destroying her family. When their hearts collide, more than their lives are at stake. Will Colton find a way to forgive Piper’s lies? Can Piper find a way to rescue her father, trapped in Israel? Is there any way their love, founded on her lies, can survive?

Cheap Flowers For Valentine’s

Posted by Vicki on Jan 23, 2011

Generally I like being single, but there are things that I miss, like someone to give me flowers on occasion. I don’t even mind if they are cheap flowers for Valentine’s, I’m not picky. It’s always been the thought that counts for me. I miss that there isn’t anyone to make me feel special on my birthday, not that the men of my past did, but it’s always something that I thought would be nice.

I don’t know, maybe there is still hope that I will find the right man.

I’m a smoker, it is what it is. You can not like me because of it, that’s your right. Seriously though, I can think of a lot worse bad habits than smoking.

Anyway I started smoking swisher sweets little cigars acouple of years ago, because the price of cigarettes was so unbelievable. Of course the price has only gone up since then.

It’s possible that I might quit someday, we’ll just have to see.


Nighttime Sleeping Aid

Posted by Vicki on Jan 16, 2011

My family has a history of insomnia, and of course I had to inherit this trait. There have been many times when I thought of taking a nighttime sleeping aid, but I just don’t like the idea of doing it when I’m home alone with the girls. I suppose it wouldn’t be so bad now, but when they were little, I always wondered if those pills would knock me out to where the girls couldn’t wake me up if they needed something.

Really though insomnia isn’t so bad. I get a lot accomplished on the nights I can’t sleep.


Stainless Steel Barrels

Posted by Vicki on Jan 16, 2011

Okay, I know of uses for stainless steel buckets, bowls, and such things, but what are you going to need stainless steel barrels for??

I like stainless steel bowls for cooking. I just like the way dough, and cakes turn out when I use a bowl like that.

My sister wants a stainless steel bucket for when she’s milking the goats, but hasn’t run across one yet.


Reading

Posted by Vicki on Jan 16, 2011

Even though reading is one of my most favorite passtimes, I haven’t been doing much of it lately. No worries, I’ll pick up the hobby again the first time a new Louis L’Amour arrives. *LOL*

Life has just been busy, so I haven’t been reading much. Most of my spare time has been spent working on the embroidered crib quilt that I started acouple of years ago. I had it about 3/4 of the way done, but then I broke my wrist, and couldn’t work on it. After that I moved acouple of times and it never got unpacked. Anyway, I ran across it awhile ago and pulled it out to finish. I had to finish the crocheted hat I was working on, but as soon as I did that, I got back to work on the quilt. I finished the cross-stitching on it, and I am now in the process of backstitching everything, and then it’ll be ready to put together. I’m so excited!!


Artwork Prints

Posted by Vicki on Jan 14, 2011

I wouldn’t mind aquiring some artwork prints, but really I have no idea where I would hang them. My walls are covered with pictures of my girls. *BS* The greatest artwork there is, in my opinion! Home isn’t home until I have my pictures up. I love being surrounded by their smiling faces!!

I’ve started buying frames acouple at a time, to catch up on the pictures I don’t have in frames. I only need about 15 more. *LOL* Yep, I’ve got LOTS of pictures of them.


Wireless Outdoor Speakers

Posted by Vicki on Jan 14, 2011

I think the invention of wireless outdoor speakers are great. I don’t have any, probably never will, simply because that seems a bit high tech for me, but I can see the advantages of them. Especially if they make ones for performers, so they didn’t have all the cables running to and from on the stage. I’ve helped break down a stage before, and they have a lot of different cables and wires.


Courting Miss Amsel

Courting Miss Amsel
Bethany House (January 1, 2011)
by
Kim Vogel Sawyer

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Kim Vogel Sawyer is the author of fifteen novels, including several CBA and ECPA bestsellers. Her books have won the ACFW Book of the Year Award, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, and the Inspirational Readers Choice Award. Kim is active in her church, where she leads women’s fellowship and participates in both voice and bell choirs. In her spare time, she enjoys drama, quilting, and calligraphy. Kim and her husband, Don, reside in central Kansas, and have three daughters and six grandchildren.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Edythe Amsel is delighted with her first teaching assignment: a one-room schoolhouse in Walnut Hill, Nebraska. Independent, headstrong, and a strong believer in a well-rounded education, Edythe is ready to open the world to the students in this tiny community. But is Walnut Hill ready for her?

Joel Townsend is thrilled to learn the town council hired a female teacher to replace the ruthless man who terrorized his nephews for the past two years. Having raised the boys on his own since their parents’ untimely deaths, Joel believes they will benefit from a woman’s influence. But he sure didn’t bargain on a woman like Miss Amsel.

Within the first week, she has the entire town up in arms over her outlandish teaching methods, which include collecting leaves, catching bugs, making snow angels, and stringing ropes in strange patterns all over the schoolyard. Joel can’t help but notice that she’s also mighty pretty with her rosy lips, fashionable clothes, and fancy way of speaking.

When Edythe decides to take her pupils to hear Miss Susan Anthony speak on the women’s suffrage amendment, the town’s outcry reaches new heights. Even Joel isn’t sure he can support her newfangled ideas any longer. And if he can’t trust her to know how to teach the boys, how can he trust her with his heart?
