Coming Soon From Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy

What's the fun of going to the movies if you don't catch the previews? Everyone likes to get a sneak peek at what's coming soon so I thought I'd share what I've got coming from Rebel Ink Press.

On August 3rd, I'll have another contemporary romance, Heart of the Ozarks.  First I'll share the blurb and then the lovely cover (another Carl J. Franklin special):

After St. Louis TV weathercaster Cole Celinksi loses his almost estranged wife and three children in a car crash, his boss orders him to take a leave of absence.  He heads to the quiet side of Lake Taneycomo in the Ozarks, to a resort he visited as a child.  On arrival Cole learns that his old summer friend Maggie runs the place and before long mutual attraction ignites.  Before he can heal, he must learn to deal with his loss and to see if he can create a new family with Maggie and her children.  It’s a task he’s not sure he can handle but if he wants to be with Maggie, he must.  A near tragedy brings them all together into a close knit unit and afterward, Cole may be able to make his dreams reality.

On September 17, I have another historical romance, this one set in the 1930's in western Oklahoma called Dust Bowl Dreams.  No cover yet but here's the blurb:

Life’s never easy for a good-hearted man who decides crime is the answer to his troubles.
No rain in the summer of 1933 is bad news for Oklahoma farmer Henry Mink. The local banker wants the mortgage on the farm paid and unless Henry comes up with the dough, his widowed mother and four young siblings won’t have a home.  Jobs are scarce so he decides to rob a bank.   His sweetheart, school teacher Mamie Logan, doesn’t like the idea and neither does Henry’s kid brother Eddie but Henry’s out of options.
He leaves home and robs a bank at nearby Ponca City. When he returns home, he pays off the mortgage but new troubles show up. Mamie is his greatest joy and they become engaged but by fall, Henry has no options left but to rob another bank.  If he can pull off one another big job, he figures he’ll be set until the hard times are over but few things in life go as planned.  His desperate efforts will either secure his future or destroy it forever.
If Henry’s family survives and Mamie’s love endures, he’ll need a miracle.
Then I have something different, a collection of interconnected stories, Kosovo Stories: Two Hearts, One's the blurb:
Against a backdrop ranging from the American heartland to the war shattered mountains of Kosovo, Kosovo Tales: Two Hearts, One Love is a collection of inner connected short fiction featuring  Albanian freedom fighter Nikolla Shqiponja, Nick, and his American love, Tina.
Together they must face separation, war, danger, and other crises.  Their powerful passion and eternal love spans two continents as they weather everything from illness to extreme weather.  Both are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for love but fate intervenes.  In Kosovo Tales: Two Hearts, One Love, this man, that woman share a love to last through the ages and beyond.
And last - for now - but far from least, Devlin's Grace:
When he rides out of the fog on his motorcycle Gracie Alloway could almost mistake him for a demon rising from the smoke and steam of hell....except she's attracted to him from the first moment.
Devlin is everything she's not - wild and a little wicked but opposites attract because good girl, college student Gracie wants more of this bad boy.
He dreamed up a fantasy woman back in Iraq a lot like Gracie and she evokes a side he hasn't shown anyone in years. She also dares to enter his personal space and take liberties no other woman's dared.
Although he struggles with PTSD and other issues, Gracie won’t run and she refuses to abandon her Devlin.
If she can just tame him and help him battle his demons.....if he can teach her how to live a little bit more, they might just have a chance at a future - together
