Bliss County series, THE MARRIAGE CHARM & Giveaway by Linda Lael Miller



Giveaway below.
In THE MARRIAGE CHARM, it’s Melody Nolan’s turn to find love. Melody has recently found success as a jewelry designer, and her work is the focus of her life. She’s not exactly unhappy, but she wants more. She’s always been attracted to Spence Hogan, the local chief of police, but she’s convinced that Spence, a notorious charmer, isn’t what you’d call husband material. Spence is a good cop who isn’t scared of anything—except love. And he’s done everything he can to preserve his reputation as a womanizer—a reputation that keeps marriage-minded women, including Melody, at bay. And yet…there’s something about Melody he can’t forget, something his heart can’t ignore…


Linda’s last book, The Marriage Pact – the first in the Bliss County series – received fabulous reviews. RT Book Reviews said, “Miller has found a perfect niche with charming western romances and cowboys who will set readers hearts aflutter. Funny and heartwarming, The Marriage Pact will intrigue readers by the first few pages.” and Library Journal called it a, “touching, down-to-earth story that provides fans with a realistic community in a glorious landscape and deftly launches Miller’s latest contemporary Western series.”


My review:

Everyone knows I love Linda L Miller.  What is there not to love.  Her writing is remarkable and the stories are always great.  Nothing has changed in The Marriage Charm.  I loved this book and turing the pages wasn’t a hardship.  The Marriage Charm is the second book in the Brides of Bliss County series.

Spence and Melody had to work hard at their relationship. Melody was easy to relate to and was nice to see her stand on her own two feet and fend for herself. Spence really had to work at making Melody his and it was touch and go for a while but the whole book made you fall for them both and hope for the best.  I have to say it was nice to see Spence work at wining Melody back a nice change.

The added robberies in the story helped with the twists to make the book even more enjoyable.

The author really knows her writing and settings.  She never misses a beat.  If I could have Linda on my blog each day I would you can never get tired of her.  You will not go wrong in reading this series.


Giveaway:  One US winner will receive a print copy of The Marriage Charm.

About this author
As the daughter of a town marshal, Linda has come home to the western lifestyle that gave birth to one of today’s most successful authors. She left Washington years ago and pursued her wanderlust, living in Arizona and London and traveling the world. Now the author of more than 100 novels, the “First Lady of the West” is glad to be back home, writing contemporary and historical stories that have earned her awards and placements on all the national bestsellers lists.

Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold FLETCHER’S WOMAN in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
