#Win Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates (US)




USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. 









Love Lessons from Maisey Yates

In Take Me, Cowboy; Anna and Chase have ample reason to stay away from love. Both of them have experienced a lot of pain in their lives, and there's a reason they've confined their relationship with each other to friendship. They care for each other, but both of them are reluctant to depend on each other too much because of their past baggage.

I think the real lesson in this book is that love is brave. Loving is brave. Allowing yourself to be loved is brave. Too often in society love is looked down on his week. Or, we are told that something that should be easy, something that should make us happy. I don't think that's always the case. Anything worth having is weighted with cost. That's what makes something valuable. Love doesn't always feel easy, it doesn't always come simply. You have to make yourself honorable, be honest with yourself and with your partner, and work to maintain it.


It takes bravery to open yourself up to love, but it's only when Anna and Chase are able to be brave, set down their baggage and move forward, that they're able to truly live a full life with each other, and not just the half-life they had previously confined themselves to.

Tomboy Anna Brown wants to tap into her femininity, but is clueless on how to do so. When her brothers bet she'll be dateless at a charity auction, she turns to a makeover - and way-too-sexy best friend Chase McCormack - to prove them wrong! HIS BABY AGENDA Gabi De La Cruz thought she'd found Mr Right...until he was arrested for murder! Now Kingsley Buchanan is back and needs help with his young child, but is there room for a second chance when he's so determined to clear his name?

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
