Freebie for Mail Order Bride Fans!


If you love mail order bride stories, you're going to love the Timeless Romance Anthology: Mail Order Bride novella collection! And it's free today!

Get your free copy here

Here's the back copy:

Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Mail Order Bride Collection, now a USA TODAY Bestseller! Six historical romance novellas set in the Old West.

WRITTEN IN HER HEART, a charming novella by Stacy Henrie, Georgeanna is getting desperate. She can’t fund her favorite orphanage unless she marries and secures the rest of her inheritance left by her father. But her father’s financial planner, Clay, can't understand why she's not content with her current situation. Georgie determines to send out a notice as a mail order bride to attract suitors who won’t know her financial situation. Little does she know, Clay takes up the pen and sends her letters of his own under an assumed name. After years of working for Georgie’s father, Clay realizes he isn’t ready to watch her marry another, not when his heart is already claimed by her.

In Kristin Holt’s delightful novella WANTED: MIDWIFE BRIDE Dr. Naomi Thornton thinks she has it all: a beautiful house, a loving husband, and a fulfilling career. But when everything she holds dear is ripped away, Naomi has no choice but to start over. What will she find in the wild and untamed Wyoming Territory? Dr. Joe Chandler has waited years for a wife with the knowledge, skills, and tender heart he yearns for in a medical colleague and lifetime companion. When a midwife arrives with more expertise and secrets than he counted on, Joe quickly discovers there’s more to love and marriage than a simple mail order contract.

In THE SOUND OF HOME, a captivating novella by Annette Lyon, Marilyn is given the choice of either marrying the despicable Victor or being charged with a murder she didn’t commit. Refusing to believe that either is her fate, she finds a third option: she answers a mail order bride advertisement and boards a train to Wyoming to wed a man named Harry. Moments after her arrival, she learns that Harry isn’t who he seemed to be, and the advertisement turns out to be a giant mistake. Harry’s brother Thomas agrees to let her stay until she can figure out what to do next—after all, she simply cannot return to New York—but Marilyn quickly finds herself developing feelings for Thomas.

In Sarah M. Eden’s endearing novella FOR BETTER OR WORSE Gerald Smith, on the advice of his well-meaning neighbors, has decided it’s time to change his lonely existence. Mary Hill, on the advice of her empty pocketbook and non-existent roof over her head, has decided it’s time to secure herself a future. A mail-order marriage, they both realize, is no guarantee of happiness, but it is a risk they are willing to take. However, coming face to face on the train platform, the hapless couple discovers an unexpected truth: marriage to a perfect stranger is sometimes far preferable to the prospect of a lifetime with someone you used to know.

Heather B. Moore’s sweet novella THE INCONVENIENT BRIDE sees Carmela traveling from Boston to Colorado, eager to meet the man she’s been corresponding with and will soon marry. Her brother’s new marriage leaves little room for Carmela in her old life. Upon arrival in Leadville, she faces a rude awakening, and the only one who can understand her predicament is her fiance’s brother, Samuel. But Samuel can’t possibly help her out of an awkward situation, can he?

THE PRICE OF SILVER, an engaging novella by Si├ón Ann Bessey, Katie leaves New York for Idaho to marry Jake, a man she’s written to a couple of times. But when she steps off the train, his brother Caleb is there to greet her. Jake has gone to take a mining job he couldn’t pass up. Caleb takes Katie back to the family ranch to wait for Jake’s return. The more Caleb gets to know Katie, the more he envies his brother, but he can’t let his heart overrule his head unless Jake changes his mind about his intended bride.

Anyone Watching the Olympics?


This one made me laugh today. Anyone else watching the Olympics? What's your favorite sport so far? 

I watched the fencing matches, volleyball, some water polo, a little gymnastics, diving and skateboarding. I admit, I was fascinated by the synchronized diving. That must have been SO hard! I can only imagine the training hours they put in. The Olympics can be so mesmerizing!

Are you watching?

Book Review: A Child of God


I Am A Child of God by Chantel and Mauli Bonner is an adorable children's book talks about God's creations in all their variety, animals, flowers, and even people. It presents ideas in a simple, yet profound way that God loves us all the same no matter what our hair or skin color is, and we can be like him through our actions. 

I thought the illustrations were well-done and the text hit just the right balance with a rhyme that tells a tender truth. A book every child will enjoy having read to them and one that can start important conversations.

You can get your copy here

Here's the back copy:

A rhyming, read-aloud book with warm illustrations conveys a comforting, faith-filled message from a Black father and mother to their children who see visual representations of their faith, but question what it means when they don't see their skin color, their physical features, or their gender portrayed.

"What about the angels, will they stop and stare, when they see that I may not have their same color hair?" asks the girl.

In soothing verse, the father assures his children that everyone looks like Jesus and the angels by the things they do. As the family walks through their neighborhood, the father points out the beauty in God's creations, from flowers, all unique and different, to all the children in their community "each with skin a different shade." He reminds his children that pictures of faith such as angels were drawn by someone and encourages his children to draw their own pictures so angels look like all of us.

Movie Review: Once I Was Engaged

We watched Once I Was Engaged, the sequel to Once I Was A Beehive. We were excited that the same girls from the original film were returning and the trailer looked cute. 

Bree Carrington's mom was the girls' camp uber planner in the last movie. In this movie, her daughter Bree gets engaged and they only have a couple of months to plan the wedding. But the couple hits a few bumps in the road, which leads to some self-realization. There was some good character growth in Bree and she's really relatable in the show as she navigates the consequences of her decisions. There's also some cute comedic moments, and it was good to see the other girls, especially Lane, from the first movie. The cinematography was well-done (I loved the Hawaii scenes) and the story was sweet, but the ending was definitely unexpected for me. Overall, it was a fun family night at the movies with this one.

Here is the teaser:

A new romantic comedy from the creators of Once I Was a Beehive! When Bree Carrington gets engaged while at BYU Hawaii, her loving but over-the-top mom goes all out to create the wedding of the century. But both mother and daughter must overcome the pressure of perfection when this happily ever after story doesn't go quite as expected.

Here is the trailer:

My Audio Book Won An Award!


The audio book for my romantic suspense novel, Second Look, got a 4.5 star review AND the Crowned Heart of Excellence in InD'Tale magazine! Woohoo!

My favorite part of the review was, "Second Look is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense novel that will leave readers breathless. Ms. Bellon has created a well-thought out terror plot that thrusts Nate and Abby together. While their attraction grows the more time they spend together, they also have a very real relationship that will have readers rooting for not only their survival as individuals, but also as a couple." 

The reviewer also said my narrator, Tristan Wright, was "absolutely fantastic." (And I completely agree!)

Juliet Graham fervently counts the days until her twenty-first birthday, when she can claim the inheritance that will grant her the freedom she has always craved and the guardianship of her younger brother. Until then, she is trapped under her aunt Agnes’s domineering will. When forced to accompany the family to a house party at Shaldorn Castle, Juliet’s only objective is to keep to herself. That is, until a chance encounter with a boorish stranger stirs up an unexpected whirlwind of emotions in her. Thrown off-balance, Juliet does the unthinkable: loses her temper and insults the man—who turns out to be her unwilling host, the Duke of Halstead. Fully expecting to be sent away, Juliet is surprised when the brusque and callous duke instead takes an interest in her.

Drawn to the duke in unguarded moments, Juliet finds herself more and more intrigued by the man who shuns Society’s rules as completely as she does, and over the next few weeks, their unlikely friendship deepens into a connection neither expected.

But even as Juliet comes to recognize her true feelings, her scheming aunt issues an ultimatum that threatens the future she was just beginning to hope for. Juliet must choose: either break the promise she made to herself years ago, or lose the man who has captured her heart and soul.

Book Review: Ace High

Contemporary Fiction Review by Lauren


Kellie Prosper is an accomplished therapist whose life didn’t turn out exactly the way she planned it. Coming out of a messy divorce, she finally has the closure she needs to move on. Fortunately, she has a brother with cute friends that help around the family ranch. For what seems like the first time, she notices the handsome Lars, her brother’s best friend and local rodeo star. As they explore their feeling for one another, a romance begins to blossom that keeps the reader enthralled and enjoying every minute of this book.

Ace High is an adorable romance novel that not only will satisfy your need for a cute love story, but also brings in real-life issues such as mental health and divorce in a very sensitive way. This book takes you on the ups and downs of navigating a new relationship, and how worth it is to work on hard things together.

Here's the back copy:

Sometimes second chances are waiting when you least expect them.

Lars Jackson isn’t purposely hanging around Lost Creek to see Kellie Prosper more. All right, maybe he is. She’s single now, and well, he knows she’s been through a lot. Maybe he can be a listening ear. Something more would be a dream of his, but he’s good at waiting. Before Kellie’s divorce, he’d just kept his focus on his bronc riding career. But now . . .

Kellie Prosper is busier than she’s ever been. Running the Broken Hearts Ranch, bringing on new clients, and balancing all the changes in Lost Creek. At least her brother Ryan is there to help, though when Lars Jackson, one of the Original Six, starts hanging around more, Kellie feels . . .  She doesn’t know exactly what she feels.

Book Review: Inventing Vivian


Inventing Vivian is the next installment in the Blue Orchid Society series and I was really excited to read this one. Jennifer Moore is one of my favorite authors and she doesn't disappoint in this Victorian romance.

Vivian loves science and experiments, but of course her brilliant mind is not accepted in society. In fact, she has felt the sting of being asked to leave a club for young scientists when she was a girl, but now she is grown and has dreamed of going to the International Exhibition of Industry and Science. She needs a recommendation from a peer of the realm and is struggling to find someone to help her, when she receives an anonymous benefactor. 

Lord Benedict has returned from China upon the death of his older brother. He is trying to find his footing as the new heir, when he meets Vivian in a most unusual way. He is attracted to her uniqueness, but because of an unfortunate event when they were children, she is not anxious to be more than acquaintances. Lord Benedict finds a way he can help her by being her anonymous sponsor at the Exhibition, but when the secret is revealed, will it ruin his hopes regarding Vivian?

I really enjoyed Vivian's character and her inventions. She is such a memorable character, with depth and passion for her craft. I loved her interactions with Lord Benedict as they begin to see each other in a different light. There really were some laugh-out-loud moments between those two! There is also a little murder mystery near the end of the book which also showcases Vivian's talents and her deepening feelings for Lord Benedict. 

I thought the author did a wonderful job with the details and setting, especially bringing in a little bit of Chinese culture through Lord Benedict's best friend Zhang Wei. Lord Benedict was a hero who needed a bit of guidance, but wasn't afraid to ask for it. He wanted to do right by those around him, and was so endearing in his attempts to woo Vivian. Inventing Vivian is a wonderful addition to the series, and one for my rainy day shelf!

Here's the back copy:

Ladies of London’s High Society are known for their social graces and poise. Vivian Kirby boasts neither of these enviable qualities, though she does offer impressive conversation on chemical compositions. Unfortunately, it appears that not many men want a brilliant wife. So it is that Vivian finds kinship with a group of young women who embrace each other’s differences: The Blue Orchid Society.

After an extended stay in China, Lord Benedict has returned transformed to his family’s estate, where an encounter with Vivian, whose scientific knowledge he once undermined, leaves him determined to make amends. He arranges to help forward her research—anonymously, of course. Through letters, Vivian establishes a warm friendship with her secret benefactor, even as she’s unexpectedly drawn into a murder investigation that forces her to work alongside Benedict to unearth the truth. Soon, Vivian fears she may be falling in love with two men, never suspecting that they are one and the same.

Returning to his hometown to ride in the rodeo gives him a chance to spend time with his daughter and to continue mending bridges with the rest of his family. But what he doesn’t expect is to run into Jana Harris—the first woman he loved—the woman who faded from his life years before because Knox continued to mess up one thing after another. Someone as good and as sweet as Jana is the last person he deserves. Hope is dangerous. And hope can break his heart once again. Yet Jana might be the one person with the power to redeem his past once and for all.

If You Can Only Choose One . . .


This is such a tough one! For my favorite spy show, Alias, I would want to meet Jennifer Garner who played Sydney Bristow. 

For my favorite crime show, Hawaii Five-0, I think I'd want to get stuck in the universe of the show for one day. Or maybe just meet the cast. Or maybe have Chin and Kono come back. Aaaah! It's such a hard choice! 

What would YOU choose for your favorite TV show?
