Western Romance Cafe Giveaway Extravaganza

Merry Christmas to all our amazing followers! We appreciate each and every one of you and love all the support you give to us here at Western Romance Café. To celebrate our 1500 friends milestone, we are having a December celebration and today is my day to hold the microphone.

I live in southern Oklahoma and we’re all about cowboys, country music, cowboys, good food, cowboys, Native Americans (my good friend calls himself an NDN), reading good books, tornadoes and did I mention cowboys?

So for my prize package I’ve chosen a dream catcher key chain, a hand made choker and earring set made by an elderly little Chickasaw Indian lady, six of my Christmas Cowboy books (signed of course), a little Okie refrigerator magnet, a Blake Shelton Christmas CD (because he lives in my home town of Tishomingo), enough pecans to make a pie (picked up from my front yard and picked out by Mr. B), and a Gone With the Wind evening bag (because I love that book and Scarlett O’Hara’s sass). I could not figure out a way to put a tornado in the box but several of my sassy heroines will make you think of a tornado.

All you have to do tell me the top item on your Christmas list this year in the comments on my Western Romance Café and your name goes into the famous red boot. Drawing will be held tomorrow morning. Good luck and thank you again for being a part of our Western Romance Café!

has hit the shelves!
(Previously published as The Red Hot Chili Cook Off, it's now available in mass market paperback with a brand new title and cover)

One woman's quest for chili perfection
Carlene Lovell is going to hit her no-good, deadbeat, cheatin' ass, soon-to-be ex-husband where it hurts: at the annual chili cook-off, which he's won for 10 years in a row. To win, though, she'll need more than a little help...
Is another man's second chance at love
Police Chief Jack Landry has been smitten with Carlene forever. Now that she needs some help keeping the peace (and getting revenge), it's his chance to prove that not all men are dogs....

"With a cast of characters that will leave readers grinning, Brown's latest is delightful, humorous "chick lit"... Fun, fun and more fun is on hand in a story that wins a blue ribbon in both originality and wit. 4 Stars" - RT Book Reviews

"Fun, fresh and hilarious... The author showed that laughter is the best medicine and a sure fire cure for the toughest of challenges in life." -
Chick Lit Reviews

"A fun romp through the world of the dignified South, where a group of women opening a lingerie shop is only slightly less scandalous than a woman divorcing a cheating jerk of a spouse." -
Calliope's Reviews and Stitching News

"The characters are vibrant and engaging, the story is endearingly off beat and full of down home folksy charm. A wonderfully heartwarming and highly entertaining novel." -
Book Reviews and More By Kathy

"Fun, sassy, and showing that you should follow your heart..." -

December Sales!

Don't you just love a good sale in December?

Four of my books are on sale for the whole month of December. The Lullaby Sky and The Ladies' Room are both priced at $2 and Life After Wife and Hidden Secrets are only 99 cents. So while you are waiting in line, sitting in a doctor's office or maybe just curled up in your favorite reading spot with a cup of hot chocolate...here's raising my cup of coffee to you this morning and wishing you happy reading days!

After seven years of misery and abuse, it’s all over—Hannah O’Malley is officially divorced. Hallelujah. It’s like every Christmas in her life all rolled up into one glorious day. Not only does Hannah get to keep her grandmother’s spacious old house, but she has full custody of her sparky five-year-old daughter. All Hannah has to do now is put the past behind her.
And now that she’s free, she wants to make a difference. With the help of her warm, close-knit circle of friends—including her high school crush, Travis Wilson—Hannah begins turning her home into a safe house for other women who’ve endured the pain she’s known. With a second chance at love on the horizon, Hannah must face down her past in order to let the sunshine back into her life.

All’s fair in love and war, and Sophie is determined to win the battle for her aunt Maud’s cattle ranch—even if it means fighting Elijah, a rude ex-military man. But it seems that even from the grave Aunt Maud is still matchmaking; her will states that both Sophie and Elijah must share the ranch evenly, and neither wants to give up a share. But Sophie’s main focus is on the ranch, not romance; she just put her life back together after being betrayed in her previous marriage.
As the two work side by side, their feelings begin to change. But before they can find their happily ever after, Elijah must see through Sophie’s hard armor to the sweet soul beneath, and Sophie must help Elijah overcome his wartime nightmares of fallen friends. In Life After Wife, second chances and true love are strong, triumphing amid heartache and despair.
Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life.
Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion, a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life, and a mother with Alzheimer's residing in the local nursing home. She doesn't really need a crumbling old house about to fall into nothing but a pile of memories and broken knickknacks.
Billy Lee Tucker, resident oddball in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, lived next door to Gert, and in her will she leaves him the funds to help Trudy remodel the old house. That's fine with Billy Lee, because he's been in love with Trudy since before they started school. And just spending time with her is something he'd never ever allowed himself to dream about.
A beautiful home rises up from the old house on Broadway, and right along with it rises up a relationship. But is Trudy too scarred from what she heard in the ladies' room to see a lovely future with Billy Lee?

Kim Brewster’s ill-fated marriage was annulled so quickly that she thought she could keep the whole thing a secret…until she found out she was pregnant. But before her confession can blow a hole in the seemingly perfect lives of the Brewster women, her great-grandmother, Hannah, drops a bomb of her own. She’s selling her hotel and moving to a farm in Oklahoma—and all the Brewsters are coming with her. Kim is sure her grandmother, Karen, and mother, Sue, won’t go along with the plan, but Hannah can be very convincing. Soon the women are working the farm, selling their wares from a roadside stand, and finally feeling like a family.
And as the Brewster women’s lives take shape in ways they never expected, Kim may have found another shot at love. Luke thought he’d washed his hands of women, but when he stops by the vegetable stand and meets Kim, he’s instantly smitten. To find love, though, they’ll both have to dig past their hidden secrets.
