Sara Jane Stone | A Look Behind the Scenes of CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Author Guest / September 16, 2014

Set in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, CAUGHT IN THE ACT, the second installment in my sexy contemporary romance series, takes place in the fictional town of Independence Falls. (Some of you may remember the setting from the first book in the series, FULL EXPOSURE. Though I should point out that both books can be read as stand-alones.) The plot revolves around revenge, love, and logging. But the opening scene offers a glimpse into the Oregon that is close to my heart, my in-laws farm. My husband was born and raised in the Willamette Valley on acres of land with views that steal your breath away, especially when you’re visiting from Brooklyn, New York and long for mountains. About ten years ago, my husband (then boyfriend) gave me three cashmere goats for my birthday. He promised they would live with his mother on the farm. (Thank goodness! Our New York City landlords would have objected to livestock.) Fast-forward a decade and my mother-in-law now has a herd of fifty or so goats, and I still love visiting them. And yes, the pictures are all my mother-in-law’s goats! When I sat down to write the opening scene of CAUGHT IN THE ACT, I…

The complete opposite of Nicole. Cal finds himself utterly fascinated-and falling hard. But Nyelle is also extremely secretive.

Cindi Madsen | Reunited Lovers
Author Guest / September 16, 2014

Reunited lovers stories happen to be some of my favorite romances. For several years, I’ve had the idea in my head for an aspiring country singer and the cowboy she left behind to try to pursue her music career. I always knew I’d write it, but I had other books contracted, so I mentally added threads to the story until I finally got a chance to get it down. Since I grew up on a ranch, diving into that setting was like my own version of returning to something I love. In SECOND CHANCE RANCH, Sadie’s returning to Hope Springs after six years. The road to her country music career has been filled with lots of ups and downs and plenty of bumps. When her career hits a major snag, she knows she needs a break and a some time to recuperate and regain her confidence—not to mention her struggling bank account. So she heads home to Hope Springs, Wyoming. The only person hiring, though, is the high school sweetheart she left behind. Royce Dixon runs Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work and trains roping horses. Sadie’s good with animals and good with the teens,…
