Tickled Tuesdays-Lynnette Bonner

One of the best things about having a kindle is I can get books inexpensively, and most times, for free. I have over 300 books on my kindle, and I love it! I get introduced to authors I never would've known about. One of those authors is Lynnette Bonner. I read her book, Rocky Mountain Oasis, the first in the Shepherd's Heart Series. Here's the blurb:

He's different from any man she's ever known.
However, she's sworn never to risk her heart again.

Idaho Territory,
Brooke Baker, sold as a mail-order bride, looks to her future with dread but firm resolve. If she survived Uncle Jackson, she can survive anyone.
When Sky Jordan hears that his nefarious cousin has sent for a mail-order bride, he knows he has to prevent the marriage. No woman deserves to be left to that fate. Still, he's as surprised as anyone to find himself standing next to her before the minister.
Brooke's new husband turns out to be kinder than any man has ever been. But then the unthinkable happens and she holds the key that might save innocent lives but destroy Sky all in one fell swoop. It's a choice too unbearable to contemplate...but a choice that must be made.
A thirsty soul. Alluring hope. An Oasis of love.
Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

Without meaning to, I read the third book, as well. I plan on reading the second one soon! Here's the blurb for the third book:
She’s loved him for as long as she can remember.
But can she trust her heart to a man haunted by constant danger?

Shiloh, Oregon, April 1887
Victoria Snyder, adopted when she was only days old, pastes on a smile for her mama’s wedding day, but inside she’s all atremble. Lawman Rocky Jordan is back home. And this time he’s got a bullet hole in his shoulder and enough audacity to come calling. Since tragedy seems to strike those she cares for with uncanny frequency, she wants nothing to do with a man who could be killed in the line of duty like her father.
But when an orphan-train arrives at the Salem depot, Victoria is irresistibly drawn toward the three remaining “unlovable” children…and stunned by a proposal that will change all of their lives forever.
Can she risk her heart, and her future happiness, on someone she might lose at a moment’s notice?
Two stubborn hearts. A most unusual proposal. Persevering love.
Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

I look forward to reading the second and fourth books in this series. I was drawn back into a time I wouldn't have discovered before. If you enjoy reading, whether it be on a kindle or hard copy, might I suggest Lynnette Bonner? She's great!
