Blogoversary Giveaway #15



A brand new release Christian Historical Fiction The Jewel of His Heart, Heart of the West #2, by new author Maggie Brendan.

The Jewel of His Heart (Heart of the West #2)

Romance readers have taken to Maggie Brendan's softer romantic style that perfectly captures life on the American frontier, introducing them to rugged, independent souls and their inner spiritual struggles, and the quest for love that makes for a satisfying read every time. Set in 1890s Montana, The Jewel of His Heart finds Juliana drawn to a handsome, gentle sheepherder--but sparks fly when he considers mining, the occupation that lured her father away from his family. Both Josh and Juliana must make a choice--the world's riches and promises, or the eternal value of love.

Brenda said...

I have always so liked to read these kinds of novels and those in a serial are even better. The proper southern women traveling to the West and all they have to overcome as challenges is always a good read. No I haven't read #1 and would love to read both.

Brenda said...

I love books like this that are about strong women who are forced by circumstance to move to the old west and face all the problems they can encounter and the love they can find there. I haven't read the first book but would love to!

You make the first one sound very good. Since it's the start of a series it's especially satisfying to read that the ending felt right.

And if a book's about a woman in the American West, I'm always interested. Must be the woman in a man's world thing...

I loved the first one in this series...was so disappointed that I'd have to wait so long for this one! I'll have to refresh my memory a bit more diving into this...

I think I wanted to read this because, firstly, she's been compared to Janette Oke (whom I love) and I enjoy discovering new authors!

I'm a follower and have you linked on my blog as a book reviewer...
