As I said  on Wednesday’s post, I’ve invited fourteen wonderful authors to share their series with us this week. I’ll turn the round pen over to spokeswoman E. Ayers once more to finish sharing the books and the beautiful covers for each author. Because we know you are busy and have other blogs to visit (among other things), we’ve split these fourteen books in half to make it more convenient for you. Read on! 😀

Waving hello to all your readers. I’m excited to be here and to tell you about something brand new! Amazon has a division called Kindle World, which is a wonderful place for fan fiction. For readers it’s a great place to read more on favorite characters and storylines. For writers it gives them a chance to write in another world.

Debra Holland created Morgan’s Crossing, Montana, a historical series of mail order bride books. Kindle World asked her if she’d add Morgan’s Crossing, to Kindle World. I believe this will be the first western historical world for Kindle World, Montana Sky Kindle World. And she asked her friends to go into this venture with her.

It’s been loads of fun writing in Debra’s world with authors I knew, such as Cynthia Woolf, and some I didn’t know until this project. We’ve each brought our own stories and characters, and set them into Debra’s world. We’ve borrowed each other’s characters and used Debra’s. We’ve traded bits and pieces of stories to be certain of accuracy.

I still can’t believe that I’ve collaborated with Caroline Clemmons. She’s an icon when it comes to romance books. She’s been putting out best selling books for years.

A little drum roll, please!

PJ-MSPaty Jager Isaac http://amzn.com/B01BL0HKJQ

Historical western filled with steamy romance and the rawness of a growing country.

Alamayda Wagner’s life has left her cynical, but also vigilant, and that’s what propels her to Morgan’s Crossing, Montana in order to uncover the secrets her father took to his grave. She quickly discovers her only hope includes trusting Isaac Corum. That soon proves to be expensive, and not just financially.

The last thing Isaac Corum needs or wants is a snooty woman telling him he didn’t do enough to save her father, which is what her letter implied. He’d helped the man more than most people would have, and swears he won’t go out of his way like that again. He’ll meet her at the Sweetwater Springs train station, deliver her father’s belongings, and send her back the way she came.

But, dang it all, the woman doesn’t do a single blasted thing she’s told, and Isaac can’t just sit back and let her go traipsing off into the mountains alone…
