#83: A Cowboy To Come Home To by Donna Alward

Friendship?

Melissa Stone has done a fine job of avoiding her former best friend Cooper Ford. She was devastated when she discovered her husband was cheating on her, and felt doubly betrayed that Cooper had known all along.…

Forgiveness…

But she can't ignore him forever—especially now that they're working together on a charity project! And as she and Cooper get closer again, she confides in him her plans to start a family—alone.

Fatherhood!

Cooper wants to be there for her this time—but would he really consider being the father of her baby…?

While bestselling author Donna Alward was busy studying Austen, Eliot and Shakespeare, she was also losing herself in the breathtaking stories created by romance novelists like LaVyrle Spencer, Judith McNaught, and Nora Roberts. Several years after completing her degree she decided to write a romance of her own and it was true love! Five years and ten manuscripts later she sold her first book and launched a new career. While her heartwarming stories of love, hope, and homecoming have been translated into several languages, hit bestseller lists and won awards, her very favorite thing is when she hears from happy readers!

Donna lives on Canada's east coast with her family which includes a husband, a couple of kids, a senior dog and two crazy cats. When she's not writing she enjoys reading (of course!), knitting, gardening, cooking...and is a Masterpiece Theater addict. You can visit her on the web at www.DonnaAlward.com


REVIEW:
So lovely!
This is part of a series that I haven't heard of before this book, but it didn't matter one bit when reading. It felt fresh and new, like the start of a series or a stand alone book.
It was like watching the perfect love story unfold. These two, Coop and Mel, are the perfect match, even if it takes them too long to figure it out. They finally come together and when they did I actually got a tear in my eye. It was that beautiful. 
It was nice to have a Canadian setting too, which surprised me. Not a lot of romance books I read have a good ole north setting, so when I saw Edmonton I was wowed. 
I really love this Cadence Creek Cowboys series. I am definitely going to check out more from that series, and from this author too. Her books have an ease that has you easily reading the book in a couple of hours.
This was exactly what I needed at the right time.
Clean romance fans, this is right up your alley so get a copy today!

4/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
