YEEEE-HAW!!! Y’all will wanna turn that nag around and head over to the campfire today for sure.  Today, I’m featuring books by Cheryl Pierson and Elizabeth Lane two authors who know their cowboys and what makes a story ace-high.

To make this a regular hog killin’ time, Cheryl Pierson offered to giveaway a copy of all her stories mentioned today!! So Cookie will be hoppin’ tonight pulling FOUR names out of the hat!

Now let’s get all the ballyhoo taken care of before we get to the fun.  Leave a good e-mail address (where required) for a chance to win. **E-copies only of all prizes for foreign winners.** The first name out of the hat wins a copy of TIME PLAINS DRIFTER (autographed print copy or e-book choice for U.S. winner, e-book for foreign winner).  The other three winners will receive an e-book copy of one of Cheryl Pierson’s short stories featured!

Since my trusty nag, wordpress, gave me the slow roll this mornin’ I’m gonna extend the contest and won’t draw the winner ’til first light tomorrow.  So commence to commentin’!

Now let’s get on to the good stuff! (Remember bold print is official blurb my comments trail behind)

Trapped in Indian Territory in 1895 by a quirk of nature, high school teacher Jenni Dalton must find a way to get her seven students back to 2010. Handsome U.S. Marshal Rafe d’Angelico seems like the answer to her prayers: he is, after all, an Angel. In a race against time and evil, Rafe has one chance to save Jenni’s life and her soul from the Dark One – but can their love survive?

If you enjoy time travel stories read TIME PLAINS DRIFTER! If you’ve never read a time travel book, or don’t think you want to…READ TIME PLAINS DRIFTER! The time travel is the most realistic explanation for time travel I’ve read and then you add in the paranormal elements tied to Rafe, and really Cheryl Pierson lassoed it all together so beautifully you just have to read it. Rafe d’Angelico is rugged, tortured, and swoon worthy (I actually swooned… more than once) the perfect old West lawman. Jenni, from present day Oklahoma, is gutsy and determined enough to hold her own in 1895 Indian Territory. The only thing I can say against Jenni is she gets Rafe, and here I was reading up on time travel methods. The secondary characters are legendary, and if Rafe and Jenni weren’t such a fantastic hero and heroine the others could steal the show. Heart pounding action scenes and love scenes, good versus evil (and did I mention a swoon worthy hero) make TIME PLAINS DRIFTER a must read!

Don’t forget to check out Cheryl’s other fabulous stories available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords! Westerns, Western Romance, and Contemporary you won’t be disappointed in any of this author’s works. I couldn’t choose just one so below are three of my favorites from her short story collection. But JASON’S ANGEL gets a special tip of my hat. This story could have been five hundred pages and I’d still want more. 









San Francisco Lawman Flynn O’Rourke swore he’d bring his sister’s killer to justice.  So when suspect Aaron Cragun is identified, Flynn will do anything, even rent a boat and sail to Cragun’s remote home to find him.  But Flynn doesn’t anticipate the storm that wrecks his boat, the injury that erases his memory…or the beautiful woman who rescues him. 

Sweet Sylvie is loving and kind—and Aaron Cragun’s daughter.  As Flynn’s memory returns, will the lawman keep his vow or allow himself to fall for the one woman forbidden to him? 

THE LAWMAN’S VOW is MAGIC from the setting to the hero and heroine and the secondary characters. Elizabeth Lane brings readers a story to grab a cup of coffee or tea and get swept away. Flynn O’Rourke is kind, generous, but don’t worry he’s still tough enough to take on the bad guys. Oh, and did I mention he smolders (literally I smelled smoke and realized it was my Kindle).  His interactions with Sylvie and her young brother are so tender you’re sure to melt. I was a bit worried when I read the blurb that Sylvie might be a bit flighty or annoying in her innocence, but Elizabeth Lane did a wonderful job of making Sylvie loving and innocent, but also an intelligent young woman whose strength is in her heart and her determination to protect those she loves. You end up rooting for these two to overcome all that stands between them and find their happily ever after.  THE LAWMAN’s VOW is a bit different in that it’s not a shoot ‘em up Western, but this is a story you’re sure to enjoy!

Below are three of my favorites from Elizabeth Lane’s vast selection. You can find Elizabeth’s books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or e-Harlequin. I have to give special mention to CHRISTMAS MOON. I read this story in December and the characters are still with me. Winter, spring, summer, fall,  I would recommend this book anytime. My only warning is once you start reading you won’t stop.

    • Thank you so much, Linda, for your wonderfully kind words of encouragement. I hope you’ll come back to the campfire often now that you know the trail.

  9. First off Kirsten, what a beautiful web site. I love the mountains in the background; and oh what a sexy cowboy!!! As soon as I leave here, I’m going over to Amazon and download both “Time Plains Drifter” and Elizabeth’s “The Lawman’s Vow”! Cheryl, I absolutely love “Homecoming” and used it, as you know, in my class as a perfect example of one of the most memorable endings I’ve ever read … and I’ve read a lot of ‘um. Love the web site and all of you all, Phyliss

    • Phyliss, You are too kind. I appreciate you stopping by, and it sounds like you’ll have some great reading downloaded soon! I know you’ll love both stories. I know your comment about HOMECOMING is for Cheryl, but I just have to agree about it’s memorable ending. I hope you’ll stop by again, and he doesn’t do much but the cowboy sure does dress up the place! :o)

      • Just wanted to say a quick thank you to both of you for your kind words about Homecoming. I appreciate that so much–that story was one that I wasn’t sure would ever be “sale-able” and it turned out to be one of my most popular short stories. Thanks again!

  10. Hi Kirsten, such a lovely site! I sure love the look you’ve got going. And I sure love the ladies you featured…both good friends! Long live the western romance and those who write them!

    • Hi Tanya! I think it’s wonderful how you filly sisters are all supporting Cheryl and Elizabeth! They are both wonderful women and authors, and I’m proud to feature them today. And I’ll give a hearty second to a long life for western romance and all you wonderful authors who write them and inspire others to do so, also. :o)

    • Charlene, Thank you for the kind compliment on my site. And if you like hot cowboys (which I know you do and you know how to serve them up, too) and Western roundups you’re definitely in the right spot! It’s been a pleasure featuring Cheryl and Elizabeth.

  11. WOW, thanks to everyone who popped in today to comment around the old campfire here at Kirsten’s blog. I love the looks of the blog and the set up, too–very user-friendly, which is important! Thanks so much to all our “filly sisters” who came over to support Elizabeth and me today, and to everyone else from all over who landed here and commented. I’ve been out running my legs off today, so I’m going to go eat a late dinner, then work some on my WIP, but just wanted to say how lovely it’s been to be a guest here and thank you, Kirsten for inviting me to participate! I wish you much success with this fantastic blog and with your writing. Thanks again! And thanks to everyone who stopped by.

    • Thanks for stopping by to grab another cup of Arbuckle’s from Cookie as you fly by, Cheryl! You’re welcome here anytime and I hope you’ll come back soon! :o)

  12. Kirsten, I wish I could get paid to read! I’ll definitely keep these in mind the next time I’m looking for a book.

    • Amen to that, Alison! There are just too many good books and too little time, but picking up one from one of these authors is a great choice! Thanks so much for stopping by!! :o)

    • Caroline, I’m glad Cheryl sent you over to the campfire! Hope you’ll come back often for coffee, cowboys and all things great about the West and Westerns!

  13. Love the blog:) I also LOVE Cheryl’s stories– always so good! Elizabeth is new to me so I’ll have to give her a try. I love Westerns:)

    • Thank you, Brenda! I’m glad you stopped by the campfire. Please do try, Elizabeth, I know you’ll enjoy her stories. And you’re so right, Cheryl’s stories are a guaranteed good read.

  14. I”m so glad Cheryl directed me over to this blog, it’s beautiful and filled with Western romance. I’ll keep coming back to find new authors of my favorite sub-genre of books. I’m so glad that with Indie publishing we’re finally seeing so many wonderful new Westerns. I can’t wait to load these up on my Kindle.

    • Deborah, I’m glad Cheryl directed you over to the campfire, as well. Thank you so much for your kind comments, and I hope you’ll visit often!

  15. I’m not a big fan of westerns or of time travels, but I still loved Times Plains Drifter! For anyone who does love either, it’s definitely a must read.

    Kirsten, good luck with your new blog! Nice way to start. 🙂

  16. Time Plains Drifter was a great story. I loved it. Although I have Every Girl’s Dream, I don’t believe I have actually read it yet. I know. Unimaginable. There is nothing Cheryl writes that I don’t love, be it a western or a contemporary. She just sparkles with her talent.

    • You’re so right, Sarah. I can’t say there’s anything I’ve read of Cheryl’s that I didn’t love, either. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you’ll come back.

  17. The Lawman’s Vow looks like a wild ride of a read and that cover is sensational. Elizabeth Lane looks like she’s got it going on with plenty of conflict and a sweet romance. Although she is a new-to-me author, I’d love to read her work based on that great excerpt.
