My Latest E-Reads Giveaway

I have a couple of e-books to share with you today.  I thought I would not like my e-reader but I was proven wrong.  Instead it is handy as a pocket on a shirt!  Even in the bathtub.  Yeap!  In the tub!  I put my e-reader in a large zip lock bag, zip it closed and put clear tape on the seal to give a double protection.  Then crawl on in my lovely scented tub to soak and read.  One of my true indulgences.  

Well lately I have had the chance to read a romance from  Harlequin Love Inspired Historical through NetGallery. Yeah, it has been ages since I have read one of these.  It takes me back to my teen years.  Way way way back folks.  But it was nice to have the chance to read something that was light enough to be consumed in a tub soak.  

The Cowboy Father is the third of a series by Linda Ford.  It started off with Louise knowing she needed to help her family out.  But having been quite ill for sometime she if fearful of venturing out.  Especially to help a child.  You see Louise's illness left her were she would no longer be able to have a child.  That emptiness created a barrier where she was scared to be near children for desire that would never be satisfied.  

With Alberta in the grip of the Depression, Louisa Morgan is desperate to bolster her family’s finances. But how can she tutor bedridden Ellie Hamilton? The little tomboy is more interested in making mischief than studying sums. And the girl’s bond with her handsome papa is another reminder to Louisa of the children she’ll never have.  For Emmet Hamilton, strength means shouldering burdens alone. He never thought he’d let himself share his child, or his heart, ever again. But before long, Louisa’s kindness and optimism start to change the cowboy’s mind. Maybe he can gain the courage to trust again—in Louisa, in God’s grace, and in this new family.…

My next book was given to me by the author herself.  Sharon Cramer is not new to the book world.  But she is known for her children's series of  Cougar Cub Tails.  She now has ventured off into new territory with The Execution.  I so loved the warning.   WARNING: Do not read in public, or they may think youʼve gone mad with demons of your own! 

Now this is not something you would expect from a children's story teller.  No instead we have gone all the way over to the other side of life.  I have to say this was not a single tub book.  Instead I was up out of the tub and long into the night to finish up.  Not that it is a hard read but instead one that I wanted to hang on too.  You can check out chapter one for yourself!  And in the meantime here is a lil teaser.

A young, tormented priest must see those to be executed. It is a thankless job, one D'ata dreads. Nevertheless, he does it kindly and with compassion. He gives them a chance at eternal life, listening to their confessions and offering absolution before they go to the gallows.   Tonight, however, nothing can prepare him for what he finds when he goes to the dungeons to see the last one, the mercenary—the murderer. On this night, he is forced to recount the design of his own torment and fate. His own redemption is at stake and the sins he'd tried so desperately to forget are laid naked before his grief-stricken eyes. When morning breaks, he has a decision to make...
Set in fourteenth century France, it is an epic, two-sided tale, woven amidst the cataclysms of that magnificent and wretched time. Cramer is superb at taking your heart into her hands. Gripping and poignant, this story will surprise you, making you remember what perfect love and absolute hate truly feel like, for what is the cost of true freedom?

I have to update this post.  Sharon read it and was so happy that she wanted to share.  So she is offering one paperback copy of The Execution to one of my lucky readers.  Yes, a new giveaway!  Of course we are using RaffleCopter so just pop down below and start clicking.  Oh and Sharon.....THANK YOU!

  1. I've been reading e-books on my computer but would love a Kindle which I'm saving up for. I ran out of room in my tiny house to store books and e-books are the best way if you don't have the room.

  2. I can't afford one right now and I've also run out of room for all my books so I've been boxing them up and donating!

  3. Whoops, I can't seem to like Talking bird books on facebook. Not sure why.

  4. I have not made the switch I like holding an actual book in my hands and I think I always will. Thank you for the giveaway!



Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
