Miss Apprehension and Free Books!

Did Cherise really want to run away from her wedding only to involve herself with yet another man--and a high-profile movie star at that?

Before we look at this novella, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Cowboy Homecoming, by Louise Gouge, is:

Romance outshines any Hollywood star in these three romantic novellas where celebrities learn that some things are more important than fame.






Miss Apprehension, by Trish Perry

The setting for Cherise Paul’s destination wedding couldn’t be more romantic. So why does she feel she’s being dragged down the aisle?

She doesn’t plan to run away and become entangled with the famous young actor, Niles Adair, and his film crew, but circumstances unfold exactly that way.

When her fianc√©, Jerry Gallagher, re-enters the scene, Cherise must decide: What does she want? What is she afraid of? What does she not understand? And who would have thought that Spanx could play such a pivotal role in one woman’s destiny?


Hollywood, Texas, by Kathleen Y'Barbo

Movie industry insiders may call actress Amy Foreman the next Grace Kelley, but Texas veterinarian Adam Chambers calls her the woman who broke his heart. Now she’s grooming dogs in his clinic while the trouble she left back in California untangles in her absence.

Where does a woman with the most famous face in America go to hide? Home, of course. From Hollywood, Texas to Hollywood, California and back again…can a small town veterinarian and a famous hometown movie star rekindle their lost love?


Deep in the Heart of Mayhem, by Janice Thompson

Welcome to the Texas Hill Country, y’all! It’s the perfect place for love, weddings, and mayhem! Brooke Morrow never dreamed she would end up coordinating a wedding for Hollywood starlet, Matti Maynor. Against her better judgment, she finds herself organizing the wedding of the century. It doesn’t help that Matti is marrying Texas senator, Jake Bradford, who happens to be Brooke’s ex.

Between the bride and the altar stands a whodunit complicated enough to send even the best sleuth running for the hills. Can Brooke survive the twists and turns while coordinating a wedding she’d sooner avoid? Will the whodunit be solved in time for the big day?


This collection is available for a short time for only 99 cents at Starstruck on Amazon,but I plan to give away a copy to someone who answers this question:

I really enjoy novella collections. I think it's probably more difficult for an author to craft characters and a plot that engage a reader and makes them care about what happens in such a small amount of space. So I appreciate the author's hard work. Also, I love to escape reality with fiction, but it seems that I have increasingly less time to do that these days. Novellas are an ideal size to be consumed in a day or two and packaging them in an anthology lets me read for a week or so.

I think novella collections are a great way to read new or different authors without commiting to a large chunk of time or money. Of course I want to have read at least one of the authors before. So, keep doing novella collections Trish. You introduce me to great new authors!

I love novella collections. A lot of times I don't have a lot of time to sit and read and collections like this allow me to read a little at a time.

The collections are a good thing, especially if there's a common thread. That way I get to read different authors, some that may even be new to me. I've always enjoyed the Chicken Soup Books although they are short stories.

I like novella collections. They are a good way to sample new-to-me authors, though in the case of this collection, I've read and enjoyed books by each of the authors. I especially enjoy novellas in December when reading time is often shorter. I mostly read novella collections where one or two of the authors are already favorites. I wouldn't want to always read novellas but since I like to change up what I read, they do have a place.
