THE DOUBTING HEART - Welcome & Giveaway

Hi all, I'm Brenda Gayle and I'm so glad you could stop by and help me celebrate the release of my romantaic suspense, The Doubting Heart.

Don't you just love the cover
done by the wonderful Debbie Taylor
at The Wild Rose Press?
The Doubting Heart is the second book in my Heart's Desire series. The series follows the trials and tribulations of three cousins as they try to navigate the minefield of their family's expectations to find their own path to love and happiness.
In book one, The Hungry Heart, a fourth cousin disappears during a research project on a ranch in southern New Mexico. This becomes the catalyst for The Doubting Heart.
Shelby Holt, knows she can’t trust her heart, but when she meets the new ranch hand she doubts she can trust her head either. He looks uncannily like her mentor and best-friend, a man she respected and adored—a man she believes was murdered.

Chad Graham, burned by love and war, is not quite what meets the eye. Posing as Chad Greene, he’s come to Wildhorse Pass, New Mexico, to investigate the woman making wild claims about the death of his cousin. Can the official reports be wrong? Or is Shelby trying to ingratiate herself with his wealthy family? He knows she’s hiding something. But then, so is he.

In close proximity, despite the danger, sensual attraction simmers and deception deepens. Because the closer Shelby and Chad get to one another, the closer they get to the answer...and the closer they get to danger—until Shelby herself becomes the target of a killer.

The Wild Rose Press:

I am not really too crazy about series--especially LONG, multi-volume series. I'm such a scattered reader that it's hard to commit to multiple volumes in a series. That said, I have enjoyed a few of the Bella Andre Sullivan series books.

I've hard a lot about Bella Andre's Sullivan series recently. I think I'm going to check them out. I understand what you mean about commitment issues. I have mixed feelings when I discover a new author with a long backlist.

I love series romances. I tend to get invested in the characters and I love hearing about them, even if briefly in follow up books. The Sullivan Series from Bella Andre is a good series. I also like the (brain freeze:( ). Marie Force has a really good series. Though I can not remember the name at the moment. The first is Maid for Love. It's usually free on Amazon. Robin Carr's Virgin River Series is amazing. Unfortunately, I haven't finish any of the series, but they're all great.

Ok. That settles it. I definitely have to pick up a Sullivans book. Marie Force is amazing--so prolific. A couple of days ago I was trowling the web looking for a new romantic suspense author/series. I came across Pamela Clare's I-team books. I read the first one and WOW!
