On My Wishlist 7/31


These are two books I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on:


A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman.
Baker Publishing Group
Publication date: 9/1/2010

Synopsis from Barnes & Noble:
The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman—smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jake fits all of her criteria for a husband—good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and head-over-heels in love with her. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jake? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?

A Hope Undaunted is the engrossing first book in the WINDS OF CHANGE series from popular author Julie Lessman. Readers will thrill at the highly charged romance in this passionate story.

(I'm so excited! Julie Lessman will be here August 11 for a stalking on Outside the Author's Studio. She's also giving away one of her books!)

Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander
Baker Publishing Group
Publication date: 9/1/2010

Synopsis from Barnes & Noble:
Widow Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat and provide for her two young sons, though some days it feels as though her efforts are sabotaged at every turn. When her cattle come down with disease and her sons' lives are endangered, she must turn to Rand Brookston, Timber Ridge's physician and reluctant veterinarian. While Rachel appreciates his help, she squelches any feelings she might have for Rand—her own father was a doctor and his patients always took priority over his family. Rachel refuses to repeat the mistakes her mother made. But when she's courted by a wealthy client of the local resort, she faces a choice: self-sufficiency and security or the risk inherent in the deepest of loves.

  2. Hi Ruth, they're two of my favorite authors. I bet you'll love them. I think I'll review both books this fall, so watch for updates.

    I stopped by your blog. I've been trying to leave a comment, but my computer is not letting me. I'll check back again later though.

  8. We are so on the same wavelength, Joy. I just ordered both of these books. Two of my favourite authors, by far.

    Can't wait till Julie's interview on the 11th.

  11. Joy! Your blog really really inspires me to just take some time and open a book already! It's been way too long, you probably know the game...work, family...overwhelming list of to-do's that never get done and before I know it it's been months since I've opened a book (GASP). I'm thinking A Hope Undaunted sounds like just the thing I need right about now =) Have a beautiful week!
