What It's About:
Socialite Margaret Vaughn is the wealthiest heiress in London-or so everybody thinks. Saddled with debt left by her father, she agrees to marry a rich man who can save her family's estate. But when her fiancé turns out to be just another poor social climber, Margaret faces financial ruin-and social humiliation. Just when she thinks all is lost, she finds an unlikely angel in Tom Poole . . .
After amassing a fortune in the gold fields of Australia and surviving a harrowing shipwreck, Tom Poole is the toast of London society. Yet despite his newfound fame, he's never forgotten his own humble beginnings. When he learns of Margaret's plight, he offers her financial assistance-but his interest is not strictly business. Taken with her beauty and grace, the rugged adventurer wants nothing more than to win Margaret's heart. But can he convince the proper, refined lady that, despite their social differences, they are a match made in heaven?
Once again Jennifer Delamere delivers a fabulous historical romance with the perfect blend of romance, faith elements and well-developed characters! Margaret is strong and determined, but I love how she softens at the end. And Tom is a wonderful, flawed hero who we champion to win the girl. The motivations and growth of both characters were genuine and interesting. The conflict is great and keeps you reading, especially the romantic tension! :) It was also fun to see some of the same characters from Delamere's first book.
To celebrate the release of A Lady Most Lovely, I'm giving away an e-version of the book to one lucky commenter. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me: What's your favorite thing about the month of October?
The giveaway will end at midnight (MST) Wednesday, October 16th. I'll announce the winner here on Friday, October 18th.

2. It's a fall tradition for our family to can peaches in September, which we did again this year. Look at all those lovely bottles. They'll be perfect for cold weather.
3. The bookshelves my husband built for our family room have been installed and we'll start painting them today. I can't wait to get our books on there and hang the fabric banner I bought in England that spells out "read on."
4. Another family tradition in the fall is going to the state fair. This year, there was a super cool exhibit with these giant bubble makers. We need one of these at home!
5. I'm taking a short break from historical romance writing and working on a funny, contemporary romance I started a couple of years ago. I've also been solidifying a couple ideas for my next inspirational historical. I can't Not write. :)
What are some reasons you have to smile lately? What fall traditions do you keep?

I was thrilled to get an advanced reader copy this week of A Lady Most Lovely, the second book in Jennifer Delamere's Love's Grace series.

What are you reading this week?

In the meantime, my hubby and I found this hilarious show on Netflix called Monarch of the Glen. It's set in Scotland in the early 2000's and follows the lives of Archie McDonald, his family, staff and friends in the town of Glenbogle where Archie is "laird" of Genbogle House.
We finished Season 1 and started into the second season, and we're constantly cracking up as we watch this show. The conflict, especially for Archie, is so well done. The guy can't seem to get a break from trying to pull the estate out of ruin, deal with his crazy parents, and figure out which of the local girls he likes in return. It's like the contemporary, Scottish version of Downton Abbey! :)
The show reminds me a lot of our trip to Scotland and England. It's fun to hear that accent again, and while the town and house are set very far north in Scotland, it looks a lot like the town and castle of Inveraray that we saw in the Western Highlands.

No one would ever imagine a fresh-faced young woman could be robbing stage bandits of their ill-gotten fortunes. But Jennie Jones is desperate to save her family's ranch from foreclosure. And the risks seem worth it, until her upright new ranch hand offers a glimpse of how much is really at stake.
Former bounty hunter Caleb Johnson is ready for a new, clean start. With a woman like Jennie, he could build a future there in Utah territory. But only if his gentle faith can guide her in a choice between the land she's fought so hard to save and a future by his side.
