Love's Rescue launched


One of my clients, Tammy Barley, had the launch for her new title ‘Loves Rescue,’ and another client Pam Meyers was able to be there and sent me a picture. Wish I could have been there too. Originally titled “On the Wings of the Storm” this book is the first of a three book series from Whitaker House entitled the Sierra Chronicles Trilogy.

A headstrong Southern woman falls for her kidnapper . . . a cattleman she blames for murder. When Union loyalists murder Jessica Hale’s family, cattleman Jake Bennett spirits her away to his remote ranch in the Sierra Nevadas to protect her from the men who would also kill her for her Southern origin. Yet Jessica seethes with hatred for Jake, believing he could have saved her family but didn’t. Now she will stop at nothing to escape him, and to ensure the sheriff pursues the killers – and their hanging – with diligence. Until she falls in love . . .

Under the original title On the Wings of the Storm, the book won 2nd Place in the 2006 Golden Rose Contest, Inspirational Romance category, and scored high in the Ticket to Write Contest 2006 (245 points out of 260)

Tammy has traveled across Western mountains and desert regions on horseback, and has resided in or near every setting incorporated into the book which has made her privy to the unique geographical and human flavor specific to each region. She is the author of two series of devotions for an inspirational book for missionary wives, published June 2006 and continues to contribute devotions for their web site. College studies include Prose Writing, Fiction Writing: the Novel, Modern Fiction Analysis, Nonverbal Communication, and acting to learn how to get into and develop character. She’s a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and the Romance Writers of America.

To introduce historical romance fans to the Sierra Chronicles Trilogy, she is sponsoring the kind of contest I'd like to win--A ONE-WEEK WESTERN GUEST RANCH VACATION FOR TWO! For details, visit http://tammybarley.com/Bookshelf.html She says, “Please feel free to share news of this contest via your ShoutLife bulletin and your blogs. Through my writing I write to draw people closer to God--Christians and not-yet-Christians alike (we might as well crowd heaven, eh?)--and I want to send someone on a vacation of a lifetime.”

This book is a good read and easy to endorse. It’s available for order through the above website and bookstore.

It was a great launch complete with demos by her kids showing how the Indians in the story wove baskets and tests on cowboy lingo and Civil War knowledge.

Glad I was able to go!
