How about a Mail-Order Groom?

I’m so excited! My latest historical romance, Mail-Order Groom, is on the shelves right now—and I can’t wait to share it with you! Here’s a sneak peek:

Fleeing scandal, stage sensation Savannah Reed swaps sparkles and satin for calico and wool to be Morrow Creek’ telegraph operator. Through the wires, she finds her new leading man, but when he arrives—shot and left for dead on her doorstep—Savannah suspects she’s jumped out of the limelight and into the fire….

Detective Adam Corwin awakens to Savannah’s bewitching smile, but she’s mistaken him for her mail-order groom! Now Adam must tell Savannah that her future husband is a wanted outlaw and the danger’s barely begun….

Here’s what some early reviewers had to say about Mail-Order Groom:

“This is the first Lisa Plumley historical novel that I have read and I loved it every bit as much as I love her contemporary novels! Her warmth and love of romance spill from every page. Ms. Plumley has a knack for drawing her readers into her stories and making them a part of each of us.”—Historical Romance Writers

“Everyone has a secret in this delightful tale from the Old West. The concept of the mail-order groom, rather than bride, is an entertaining twist on a standard plot. There’s plenty of gun-slinging, bloodshed, and lovemaking going on from start to finish, which will keep readers turning pages until the very end.” —Romantic Times BOOK Reviews (4 stars)

“Lisa Plumley has written a charming romance between two very appealing characters. An engaging novel with a heroine you won’t soon forget.” —Love Western Romances (4 spurs)

This is my fifth trip back to Morrow Creek, Arizona Territory, and there’ll be more Morrow Creek stories coming up! But don’t worry—you don’t have to read any of my other books to enjoy Savannah and Adam’s story. It totally stands alone. So why not give it a try? I hope you will.

Till later,
Lisa :)

Holiday Affair is on sale now!

Holiday AffairOkay, so I know it’s a little early for Christmas. But I hope that won’t stop you from checking out my new book, Holiday Affair. It’s on sale now!

I guess it’s only appropriate that Holiday Affair is hitting bookstore shelves now. After all, I wrote Reid’s and Karina’s story last summer, in the toasty 100 degree heat. (Believe me, it was heavenly to think about sleigh rides and snowdrifts instead of cactus and sunshine!) Here in Arizona, it’s still close to 100 degrees outside, and will be until around Halloween. So when I head out in a few days to autograph copies of Holiday Affair at local bookstores, I’m likely to be wistfully thinking about Kismet, Michigan, and its knack for a festive (and snowy!) holiday season.

This is my second visit to Kismet, and I had just as much fun writing about it as the last time. If you read Home for the Holidays, you might even spot a few familiar faces! But if you haven’t read Home for the Holidays yet, don’t worry–Holiday Affair stands alone. In fact, it’s been drawing raves from early reviewers! It’s a featured alternate selection of the Doubleday Book Club, Rhapsody Book Club, and BOMC2, and it’s already been awarded 4½ stars from Romantic Times magazine, 5 hearts from The Romance Reader, and 5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies! Pretty neat, right?

I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Holiday Affair today. You can read the first chapter on www.lisaplumley.com or at Google Books, or you can download a preview for your Kindle or Kindle for iPhone/iPod Touch. You can pick up a copy at a bookstore near you, order at your favorite online retailer, or visit Kensington Publishing to get Holiday Affair at 30% off the cover price today. You can even look for a copy of Holiday Affair at a library near you!

As always, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy Holiday Affair!

Till later,
