Country Music Friday - "Pontoon" by Little Big Town

I cannot believe that it's the end of August already! I know it's technically not the end of summer just yet, but I always consider September to be the beginning of Fall. So to celebrate summer coming to an end I thought I'd share a good summer song with you. Here's Little Big Town's "Pontoon" and just below that one is a collaboration of a bunch of other country artists having their own fun with the song. Happy Friday everyone!

"Tame a Wild Bride" by Cynthia Woolf Book Tour!

The Book Rosie Stanton climbed on a west-bound train to answer his ad for a wife and mother, everything she wants to be.  But Tom Harris lied.  He doesn’t want a wife, merely a mother for his two abandoned children and a cook and cleaner for his ranch. 
Betrayed once, he’s vowed never to let another woman into his heart.  Sexy Rosie upsets all his plans and threatens to invade his scarred heart.  How will he maintain his vow to keep his hands off her as she charms his children, his cow hands, his life?
An Excerpt Rosemary Stanton stood on the train platform sweating and waiting.  Sweating because it was an especially hot day in late June.  Waiting for her husband.  A husband she wouldn’t recognize if he were standing right next to her. 
She’d been desperate when she answered the advertisement for a mail order bride.  Wanted: Single woman to cook, clean, and care for children on a cattle ranch in southwestern Colorado.  Will marry upon arrival.
Well, she was twenty-six with no prospects.  He…

"The Five Dangers of Wrangling Ladies" A Guest Post by MK McClintock

The Five Dangers of Wrangling Ladies  By Gabriel Gallagher
I happen to know from experience that wrangling ladies takes finesse and truth be told it’s darn near impossible. I’d just a soon wrangle cattle or step in front of a stampeding herd of mustangs. I’m here to share with you what I’ve learned the hard way, so fellas beware and ladies…don’t worry because we still haven’t figured you out.
1. They wrangle back. Push them in the direction you want them to go and you’ll end up right where they want you. 2. They’re too darn smart for us. We’re ready to ride and they just won’t budge. When they’re ready to ride, we hop on the saddle and hold on for dear life. 3. As a group, they’re a mite easier to maneuver, but you cut one out of the herd and you’d better be ready to be outrun, outsmarted and face first in a mud hole. 4. With wrangling comes branding. You try and brand a sweet little filly and you’ll end up with a hot poker in the eye.  5. The biggest danger of all is thinking you could ever…

Name a Cowboy Contest!

Now that the first book in my “McKades of Texas” series is available I decided it was time to pick up where I left off with the second book in the series, which is Norah’s story. I had a name all picked out for the cowboy who steals her heart, but I’m starting to second guess whether I should name him this particular name or not.
So that’s where you all come in! I’m enlisting in your much needed help in choosing a name for my cowboy.
Now I know you’re probably saying, “But Kimberly, how can we pick a name if we don’t know what this cowboy looks like?” Well I’m so happy you asked:) This particular cowboy has thick, dark hair, a strong, masculine jaw, and killer green eyes. In all honesty, I sort of imagine him to look like the actor Henry Cavill. If you have no idea who he is then shame on you! LOL, just kidding, but seriously you’ve been missing out. If you’d like to get a visual then click here (I’d love to just post a picture of him on my blog but I keep hearing to many stories of blo…

Country Music Friday "Walkaway Joe" by Trisha Yearwood ft Don Henley

This is one of my favorite Trisha Yearwood songs. And if you're wondering who that handsome devil is that plays "Walkaway Joe" you'd be correct in guessing Matthew McConaughey:)

My "Gallagher's Hope" by MK McClinktock Review

Isabelle Rousseu must escape New Orleans and the memory of her family’s tragic loss. With her younger brother in tow, she accepts a position as the new schoolteacher in Briarwood, Montana. Desperate to keep what’s left of her family together, Isabelle joins her life with a stranger only to discover that trust and hope go hand in hand.
Gabriel Gallagher lived each day as it came believing he had everything he could possibly want...until a determined woman and her brother arrive with a little luggage and a lot of secrets.
It will take a drastic choice to protect her and give them both, hope for the future.

My Review:
When I first read "Gallagher's Pride" (the first novel in this series) I must admit that Gabriel was one of my favorite characters. So I was thrilled when I learned that the second novel in the series was going to be his story and I couldn't wait for it to come out. I tend to get nervous sometimes about being too excited for novels because, what if they don…

Writing Quote of the Day

"A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading." - William Styron

Author Spotlight! "Family Ties" by Krista Kedrick

She’s all country…
He’s all city…

Grace Tucker thought she had her life put back together - with the help of her over-protective brothers.  She had a quiet, predictable life operating the family hardware store in her hometown and spending her free time with her friends, the Caldwell family.  That was… until a tragic accident took her two best friends and left their daughters orphaned.  If that wasn’t devastating enough - Dirk Caldwell, the egocentric, completely handsome brother no one’s met, blows into town.

Dirk Caldwell realized he wasn’t in California anymore when he stepped from the redneck, rattletrap airplane and was smacked in the face with a cold breeze laced with manure.  It was exactly what he’d expected from the backwater town his brother called home.  But going head to head with Grace Tucker was not.  The hot-headed, leggy cowgirl was almost more than he could handle.  But, oh how he’d like to give it a try.

When two worlds collide can they realize love, tame passion and form…

More Technical Difficulties--Ugh!

Okay, so my home page appears to be a little messed up on the blog. I have no idea what happened. I'm hoping to get it fixed ASAP. Technology is not my friend this week, lol:D

"The Order" by Marsha Megan Stokes Book Tour!

Today I am pleased to have author Marsha Megan Stokes stopping by for a guest post:) Please join me in welcoming her and wishing her the best of luck with her new novel!

Guest Post by Marsha Megan Stokes
Dear Diary,
What a crazy ride this has turned out to be! The last few weeks have really tipped my world upside-down. Although, it’s not like my life was exactly normal before. You see, I’m a Locator. Now, what is a Locator, you might ask? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. I am a finder. More specifically, I find people with the Gift—the ability to harness and control the natural energies that surround them. It is sort of a family thing. My father is a Locator too.
I discovered my abilities my senior year of high school. Once I understood what was happening to me, I accepted the fact that my life was going to be a little bizarre. I had never known before that there were people out there who could control water, air, electricity, sound… Now, I can’t do anything like that. My Gift is a…
