The Prodigal Returns
Twelve years ago, Lorrie Ann Ortega left the tiny town of Clear Water with stars in her eyes. Now she’s back home—trying to live right and put her mistakes in the past. Even so, she’ll never be the kind of woman who would make a good wife for the handsome widowed pastor, John Levi. But when she agrees to be nanny to his two sweet daughters, she’s thrown constantly in his path. And she can’t keep herself from dreaming that a man like John could one day love her. Can a prodigal daughter turn into a pastor’s wife?

Enjoy your glimpse of Christmas in July!

Mark Your Calendars!

Saturday, July 27th at 10am, we’ll be holding our monthly meeting at Crown
of Life Lutheran Church, 19291 Stone Oak Parkway.

The topic will be 2013 RWA National Conference Review.

If you couldn’t get to Atlanta this year, or if you attended but missedone of the spotlights from the publishers, this is a great way to catchup. We’ll be covering not only the spotlight presentations, but a few ofthe workshops too.

Nationals will be in San Antonio next summer. So if you’ve never been, and want to know what to expect before you go in 2014, this meeting is ideal to prepare you for that.

We’ll be in the classroom by the parking lot. Hope to see you there!

One SARA, TWO Debut Releases!

Congratulations to new SARA member MARGARET TAYLOR.  She’s off and running with two debut releases! 

A First Love Never Dies

45050e4a745a0ad8976fd8.L._V383370394_SY470_

Janel Canton must be pregnant by the time Fleet Commander Pearson Acto catches up to her again and only one man will do for that. Her one true love, sexy Montana Sheriff Jake Reeves. But returning to Earth she finds he’s still mourning his dead wife and has become very comfortable in the small-town life. Will introducing him to reality of the Universe be enough for him to move on to a new life?

Sheriff Jake Reeves never thought the nerdy girl he and his cronies picked on in High School would someday become a star ship captain capable of holding her own in just about any situation. But when he meets up with Janel again at their 20 year reunion, that’s exactly what he finds! Gone is the nerdy little mouse that never fought back. In it’s place, is a rough and tumble, no holds barred, drop-dead gorgeous woman who he’s going to have one hell of a time not falling in love with.

Wolf’s Paradox

Kathy Granite is not your ordinary writer. She’s a Weaver – a spinner of great tales and has the ability to write or rewrite the history of a world. Only one problem, she doesn’t know it. She’s spent the last six years telling the stories of people dragged to Earth from a variety of places by her Layren Protector, Ronon Wulfdrak.Ronon has spent that same time keeping Kathy in the dark and only brought her people who simply want their story told. He’s carefully chosen who would appear and even though she’s become quite the sensation in our world, she’s clueless as to her effect on any others. Ronon aims to keep it that way and hopes she’s safely hidden from his own people. For, if anyone finds out what she really is, they will tear her apart to get at her power.
