Release Party for The Cowboy's Bride Collection ~ and a Giveaway!


Yeehaw! Susanne here. Put on your cowboy hat and celebrate my upcoming release with me!


Ride onto the open range alongside cowboys and cowgirls who embrace the adventures of living in the Old West from Kansas to New Mexico, Colorado to Texas. Whether rounding up cattle or mustangs, training horses, fending off outlaws, weathering storms, competing in rodeos, or surviving drought these cowboys work hard each day. But when hardheaded men have their weaknesses exposed by well-meaning women will they stampede away or will a lasting love develop? Find out in this exciting collection of nine historical romances.

Welcome to the Party! Our hosts step straight from the pages of my novella, For a Song.

Jackson Bridge (Sam Reid):
Hero Jackson Bridge, after a tough day of breaking mustangs

Unidentified Girl with Ringlets, circa 1850's:
Jackson's daughter, Georgie, whose request caused a huge misunderstanding

Lily Kimball (The Paradise on PBS):
Heroine Lily Kimball wants to be the next Jenny Lind...and never go hungry again
You look parched, but no wonder. It is indeed a hot day here on Bridge Ranch in south Texas. Have some lemonade! Lily had to use dried lemons and lemon oil, but it turned out delicious. Just ask Jackson.
Homemade Lemonade sweetened with Stevia instead of sugar. We no joke make this twice a week....cheaper than store bought and unpasteurized, so you get all the antioxidants of the lemons! My toddler loves this!:
So refreshing.
Of course, a molasses cookie would go pretty well with it, too.
Molasses keeps these cookies magically fresh and chewy for days.:
Yum!
While you chew, here's the blurb for For a Song (individual novella):


Two songbirds, red and yellow—a straightforward order for an upstanding widowed rancher’s lonely daughter. But when a sister-act of saloon singers (a redhead and a blonde) arrives on the stagecoach expecting him to give them a job, his daughter changes her tune and starts singing not for a pet, but a pretty ginger-haired Mama.

Victorian Graphic- Girl with Birdcage, Bird, Cat - The Graphics Fairy:
The picture that inspired the story!

    1. Confession: I've had lavender lemonade made with dried lemon peel and it was delicious, but I don't know how to make it. I'm sure it had a LOT of sugar in it and it wasn't exactly like lemonade, but it was refreshing.

    1. Hi Kathleen! Lily does have nice hair, doesn't she? I'm a little envious. And Georgie would love to have Lily as a mama! But will all Georgie's wishes come true? That's another matter.

      So glad you could stop by!
