Lyn Cote's Building a Family and October Releases!

PhotobucketCan she find the courage to risk losing her heart to this ready-made family?

Today's bonus post doesn't involve a giveaway, but I wanted to draw your attention to Building a Family (Love Inspired, September 2011), a new release by my writer friend, Lyn Cote.

About Lyn:

When Lyn Cote became a mother, she gave up teaching, and while raising a son and a daughter, she began working on her first novel. Rejection followed. Finally in 1997, Lyn got "the call." Her first book, Never Alone, was chosen for the brand new Love Inspired romance line.

Since then, Lyn has had over thirty novels published. In 2006 Lyn's book, Chloe, was a finalist for the RITA, and her books Her Patchwork Family and Her Healing Ways were finalists for the Carol Award in 2010 and 2011, two of the highest awards in the romance genre.

Lyn’s brand “Strong Women, Brave Stories,” always includes three elements: a strong heroine who is a passionate participant in her times, authentic historical detail, and a multicultural cast of characters. Lyn also features stories of strong women both from real life and true to life fiction on her blog http://BooksbyLynCote.com. She also can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. Drop by and "friend or follow" her.

Now living her dream of writing books at her lake cottage in northern Wisconsin, Lyn hopes her books show the power of divine as well as human love.

About the book:

PhotobucketLawyer Eleanor Washburn defends wayward teenagers and supervises volunteers for Habitat for Humanity without missing a beat. But she is unnerved by fascinating single dad Pete Beck—especially since his chaotic life includes a little girl wishing for a mother. Sweet Cassie has Eleanor yearning for what's been missing from her lonely existence. Soon, both dad and daughter are chipping away at Eleanor's defenses. Can she find the courage to risk losing her heart to this ready-made family?
