Book Spotlight: Honor

3 Sep


Honor by Lyn Cote

 “Who will you be, if not the lady of High Oaks?”

When unexpected circumstances leave Honor Penworthy destitute, she is forced from her Maryland plantation—and the slaves she hoped to free. With no marketable skills, her survival hinges on a marriage arranged through the Quaker community to artisan Samuel Cathwell. Samuel is drawn to Honor, but he has been unwilling to open his heart to anyone since losing his hearing as a child.

A move west brings the promise of a fresh start, but nothing in Honor’s genteel upbringing has prepared her for the rigors of frontier life with Samuel. Nevertheless, her tenacity and passion sweep her into important winds of change, and she secretly becomes involved in the Underground Railroad. Samuel suspects Honor is hiding something, but will uncovering the truth confirm his worst fears or truly bring them together?

Strong women. Brave stories.
Set against the backdrop of dramatic and pivotal moments in American history, the Quaker Brides series chronicles the lives of brave heroines fighting to uphold their principles of freedom while navigating the terrain of faith, family, and the heart.

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride by Elizabeth Goddard & Lynette Sowell

Wyoming’s spectacular mountains have drawn many, from trappers to ranchers to skiing enthusiasts. This Christmas, spend the holidays with the Covington family, who have called Wyoming home for generations. Rough, bristly rancher Zebulon sets his sights on eastern lady Belle Murray. Forward-thinking Emily would rather stay a dog musher than become a bride. Outfitter Sam wants to make his name in Wyoming, not say, “I do.” Hayley’s quest for her father’s approval goes sour when she takes an interest in a local ski bum. Will four festive sleigh rides rein in romance?


Happy release day to Elizabeth Goddard & Lynette Sowell!  I had the pleasure of reading A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride earlier this summer and am excited to share it with you today.

Christmas stories are some of my favorites and I loved this delightful novella collection! Spanning four generations, these stories are filled with faith, family, and love.  Elizabeth Goddard and Lynette Sowell vividly portrayed the Covington family and their beloved ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  I adored the romance in this collection and looked forward to each special sleigh ride!

While these novellas celebrate love at Christmas, A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride is a collection to love any time of the year!  You can purchase your copy from Amazon, other online retailers, or your favorite bookstore.  You can also enter to win a copy on Goodreads!

The giveaway ends Sept. 17th.
