Tame a Wild Wind - Cynthia Woolf
Western Romance from an Amazon Bestselling Western Author

Former Texas Ranger Sam Colter isn't looking for love.  Neither is pretty widow Cassie O'Malley.  But when a man stalking Sam for killing his brother kidnaps Cassie, Sam discovers it's more than duty that sends him racing to her rescue.  Will Cassie realize the truth about her own feelings before it's too late?

Mine owner and explosives expert Tonio Domani prefers to travel alone. In his line of work he can’t afford distractions. Against his better judgment he’s coerced into playing chaperone to a beautiful and tempting bride.

Thanks for having us!

I'm offering LEASHED the first book in my Going to the Dogs series.

And they call it puppy love!

When Jack falls head-over-paws for cute and cuddly Jill next door -- that creamy coat, those soft brown eyes, and, yowza, those long legs, he simply cannot help himself. Bing, bang, boom, a few weeks later, Jack has some 'splaining to do when that cute female is with puppies. Jack's going to be a father, trouble is his lady love's owner and his owner need a little shove into love. Being a large and in-charge Great Dane, that's no problem for Jack. With a little cooperation and a little matchmaking, some nudging, whining and puppy dog eyes, hopefully, everyone will live happily ever after together.

Thanks for inviting us, Linda! I am also participating in the 99-cent sale, with my contemporary romance, Cupid’s Mistake:

Party-girl Allison Kelly has it all–great friends, a flourishing business, and an active sex life. She’s beautiful, busy and blissfully fulfilled, with no time or inclination for a relationship. But life has been anything but a party for Benjamin Turner. Orphaned at fifteen, widowed at twenty-three, he traveled the world on self-imposed exile, but he couldn’t outrun the loneliness eating away his soul.

He’s looking for stability. She wants a good time. Will Cupid’s arrow find its mark this Valentine’s Day, or will their pairing prove to be Cupid’s biggest mistake?

Thanks for featuring the book buffet… I have 4 books on sale, under my alternate name AMBER CAREW:

Trust and betrayal while undercover

Angel is experienced in a lot of things, but love isn't one of them.

Angel has been deep undercover in the mob for too many years. Love is the last thing on her mind. Until Frank walks into her life once again. She almost fell in love with him four years ago, but had to betray him to the mob to protect her cover. He barely got away with his life, and now he hates her.

Too bad they've been partnered to work together. As man and wife.

Surrender control to sexy stranger

The intensely sexy stranger was everything she wanted in a man, and everything she hated. He was intelligent, passionate, and compelling. Authoritative, domineering, and stubborn. And he would stop at nothing to convince her to surrender to him, body and soul.

Even though she sensed he would never hurt her, his ability to bend her to his will terrified her. She vowed never to surrender control. But ultimately, would she have a choice?

Overwhelmed by a dominating stranger

For some reason, Fate has been messing with Lucinda's love life.

By all known wizard lore, she should have bonded with her mentor Rand, but there's simply no chemistry between them. When she gets "The Call", which shouldn't happen for her, she is faced with an incredibly sexy, entirely naked man in an alley in Paris. Getting "The Call" means she is supposed to be his mentor... and his one true love. Clearly Fate thinks her life is a joke.

Now she is stuck mentoring a man who is utterly domineering, overwhelmingly masculine, incredibly irresistible and, according to her most trusted friend, extremely dangerous.

Genie’s decision: heart versus duty

Dawn has suffered centuries of loneliness cooped up in a brass bottle. Now she has fallen in love with her new master, Luke, a stupid thing for a genie to do.

Luke still loves his ex-fiancee and realizes the beautiful genie he frees from an ancient bottle may be the key to winning Evelyn back. How can Dawn reconcile what her heart desires with what duty demands of her?
