Jenna Brandt and Free Books!

A Texas Deputy Sheriff and a small town girl fall in love in the Old West. 

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Things I Never Told You, by Beth Vogt, is:

marypopmom@...


Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and we'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's visit with novelist Jenna Brandt, author of the Inspirational historical western romance, Lawfully Loved (independently published, February 2018).

Jenna Brandt is a Christian historical romance author and she is branching into contemporary romance in 2018. Her books span from Victorian to Western to WWI eras with elements of romance, suspense, and faith.

Her debut series, the Window to the Heart Saga, has become a bestseller and her newest venture is the multi-author series, The Lawkeepers.

She is also an author in the First Street Church kindle world.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Lawfully Loved.

Jake “Bullseye” Bolton is trying to hide from a broken past through his work while Rebecca Caldwell is trying to take care of her family while they deal with an ongoing problem with their family. Both don’t think they can make room for love, but when instant attraction forms between them, they both rethink their decision.

The novel has a bit of humor with lots of action and romance.

What is it about your lead characters that will make your readers care about them?

Jake is honorable and loyal. He cares about the people he is protecting. Rebecca loves her family and does everything she can to take care of them.

Share with us one hard, cold fact about writing and one warm, fuzzy one.

Finding time to write is probably one of the largest obstacles most writers face. When someone tells me they loved my book and made them happy, it’s the best feeling in the world.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I really enjoyed Evangeline Kelly’s Lawfully Protected. It’s in the same series. I was surprised to like it since I don’t like first person perspective, but Evangeline does a terrific job. The characters are well developed; the story is great and you can tell she researched her book’s content.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on a spin-off series from my first contemporary romance book, Lawfully Adored which came out in April. It takes places in a small town, Clear Mountain, Colorado, which I created for the book. I decided to turn it into a series called Clear Mountain Romances and I’m working on the first book, tentatively called Clearly Wedded detailing the lives of the couple from Lawfully Adored and setting up future books in the series.

I love a good ending! After I have spent hours reading, a good ending sums it up and brings it home.

Remember to leave your email address (fractured, as shown), if you want to be included in the drawing for Jenna's novel.

I don't have a traditional favorite part of a novel--I think that's different in each book I've enjoyed--but I do love in a story when things suddenly take a turn. As a writer I've learned that that point often comes about a quarter of the way into the story. As a reader, when that happens in a book, I usually find myself thinking something like, "Oh, boy, here we go!"
