Well, it seems like my co-bloggers opted not to do anything centered around Valentine's Day. That makes my choice for today's post quite easy. Considering I'm less than 5 weeks away from my first baby entering this world, and this little one has sapped almost all of my brain, easy is good. :)
As I stated last month, I haven't actually SOLD a western novel yet, although I've written several. My heart is firmly mired in the fun and excitement of the grand Old West. The books set there remain among my top favorites on my shelves. If they've got a good romance in them, all the better!
So, for today, I'm going to invite all of you readers to participate. If you're a blogger here as well, feel free to toss in your .02 too!
In the comments, I'd love for you to share your favorite western romance and why you love it so much. Make sure you include the author so others can look up the book if they want to buy it.
My favorite happens to also be my favorite fiction book overall. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. Not only does Francine do a remarkable job of bringing the story of Hosea from the Bible to life, but she does so in such a compelling manner, taking the age-old tale and transporting it into the 19th century. Complete with farming, ranching, cowboy hats, saloons and horses, this book weaves a tale so deep that you can't help but be changed after reading it.
The amazing part to me is that this was Francine's first Christian novel after she crossed over from the secular market. I don't know about you, but I'd love to see this made into a movie. I'm surprised it hasn't, having sold over 1 million copies!
So, now it's your turn. Share away!
