Faced with her stepbrother’s betrayal and an unwanted marriage, Alice Rosemeyer accepts an invitation to the estate of Larkhall. Determined to earn her future security without a husband, she begins operating as the anonymous Ace of Hearts, writing love letters on behalf of the men eager to secure a match at the close of the London season. If she can manage to keep her identity secret, her reputation intact, and avoid the arrogant house guest, Mr. Thomas Herring, she might just call herself successful.
When Thomas Herring's sister marries an indebted man because of a love letter, he has no choice but to marry into money himself. Invited to stay at Larkhall, he sets his sights on the wealthy sister of his host. When she appears indifferent, he stumbles upon an advertisement: a gentleman offering assistance in matters of the heart. An ace, so he is called. But when he turns out to be she, and also a guest at the same house, his task is further complicated—especially as Alice proves herself to be as captivating as she is clever.
With reputations, secrets, and more than one heart at risk, Alice and Thomas become trapped in a game with no rules, a game neither intended to play. Had they been wrong to play love for a fool?
The Ace of Hearts is a sweet regency romance novel, book one in the Larkhall Letters series by Ashtyn Newbold.
Penelope has one iron-clad dating rule—she does not date airmen. Months ago, she relaxed her rule with Eli and immediately lived to regret it. After a long deployment, he’s now back in Misty River and, to her dismay, she finds him just as tempting as always.
Eli’s spent months thinking about funny, feisty, creative Penelope. He once leveraged his focus and drive to become a pilot, his childhood dream. Now he's set on leveraging that same focus and drive in order to convince Penelope to give him one more chance.
This romantic prequel novella introduces readers to the quaint mountain town of Misty River and a brand-new series from Christy-winning author Becky Wade!
Sam knows that he has failed Emma in the past and he doesn't intend to let her down again. Especially since her life is on the line. As the threads of the investigation cross and tangle with their own personal history, Sam and Emma have a chance to discover the truth, not only about the victim but about what went wrong in their relationship.

This week's topic is:
A book/movie/TV show that influenced my life
"Big Tim" Creighton, however, is appalled when this mincing fop arrives at Forsaken. He determines he'll turn Fancy Pants Hathwell into a man before the boss returns home. From the get-go, he has "the kid" mucking stalls, clearing and plowing a field, and assisting with a difficult calving. But when Sydney's true identity is uncovered, Tim resents being deceived. Yet in time, he also finds that he doesn't like all the attention Sydney garners now that she's wearing pretty gowns...
Together Sydney and Tim will discover the importance of family and what it means to be a man--and a woman--of God.
So, what is a Book/Movie/TV Show that influenced YOUR life?
For John, it was love at first sight. He and Maggie had a rare connection, and it wasn’t every day someone understood his humor. He never minded playing the part as livery owner by day and outlaw by night at Summit Springs—until now. His other job came with a nice paycheck, but people normally treated him differently when they found out about it. John didn’t want a thing to change between him and Maggie.
Will Maggie let John steal her heart or will past fears foil the heist?

Lets rejoice today!
1. What makes you rejoice the most?
First I'd thought I'd start with the definition of "rejoice": feel or show great joy or delight. So what makes me feel or show great joy or delight? I think what delights me is when I see my girls (Kaylee-19 and Laken-almost 14) get along and even enjoy each other's company. It doesn't happen often enough for this mama's heart!
2. What song makes you feel joyful or happy?
I think sometimes in life "joy" is something you have to choose. Thereafter, I've picked the following song for this question:
3. Do sounds of nature give you a joyous feeling?
Yes, it does! I love sitting outside on my porch swing listening to the birds. Long ago, when the girls were little we had 2 parakeets. I loved hearing them chirp in the mornings :)
4. How about holidays? Do you really rejoice or just kind of show up?
Most of the time I rejoice if all I have to do is show up! If you know what I mean. Sometimes all the prep-work it takes for holiday fun can steal the joy right out of a person. I have to make a conscious effort to limit my stress so that I can rejoice to the fullest :)
