Secret Baby - My Favorite Romance Trope by Laura Scott


Good morning! Laura Scott here asking about your favorite romance trope! As an author and a reader I happen to love the secret baby romance. Not that they are always easy to write as it's difficult to come up with good reasons for keeping such a huge event from a partner, but I adore the conflict. There's nothing like a big secret to keep two people apart.

I mostly write romantic suspense so finding out about a secret baby while in the middle of danger is even more fun. Having a woman and child in danger certainly raises the stakes. This is exactly what happens in the next book in my Called to Protect Series - Sealed with Trust.

If you haven't read my new series, these books are about a former Navy SEAL team who were injured on their last op, and forced to retire from active duty. Each of my SEALs also gets a special K-9 to help him adjust to civilian life. Is there anything better than former military heroes and their beautiful K-9's? I don't think so.

Do you like the secret baby trope? Why or why not? Always love to learn from readers what they like.

Sealed with Trust is available on August 2, 2022. Sealed with Valor will release on September 6th and the final book, Sealed with a Christmas Promise will be available on November 1st just in time for Christmas.

Sealed with Trust by Laura Scott $3.99

At the Library - Cheryl St.John

How much of a part did the library play in your life in early years? I never went to a public library until I was an adult, but I loved the school library at my elementary and junior high schools. As a kid, I was gifted a few hand-me-down books from cousins, and I still have a couple of them. But I read voraciously from the school library. I can remember wishing I could own some of those books.

After I'd married and had young kids, I took them to the neighborhood library where they always joined the summer reading program. I fondly remember sitting and reading on our big front porch in the summer. I read biographies, true crime, gothic romance and so many genres.
Over the years I've enjoyed taking my grandkids to get their first library cards, shown them how to search genres--and now how to order books from other libraries. Gigi is the most recent child to experience the library. She loves dinosaur and cat books. Her dad reads to her every night.
What memories to you have of the library?

Fans of Nashville will enjoy this book:

Audrey Knox sacrificed to make a successful career in Nashville, but the bigger her star shines, the smaller her world has become. After an eye--opening incident on tour, she wants her daughter to experience small-town life as she knew it, so she takes a break from touring to reconnect with her roots and introduce the eight-year-old to life on Big Pines Ranch. Facing the past might be her biggest challenge yet.

Jericho Tanner has loved Audrey since they were children on adjoining ranches, their families entwined. He fills the void of intimacy, love and belonging with ranch work and his deputy position in Rockwell County, with aspirations of taking over as sheriff. Emotional vulnerability is frightening, and his walls are sturdy and tall. When Audrey and her young daughter show up in Spencer, he’s forced to see his wounds in a new light.

Nothing Like July! by Susan Aylworth

I remember the long, lazy summers of my childhood. School let out before Memorial Day and didn't resume until after Labor Day. The time in between allowed for endless picnics, tree forts, neighborhood plays and parades and swim days, and peaceful, quiet naps in the shade of our mulberry tree. Of course, one of July's all-time favorite moments is the fireworks we enjoy on the 4th. The image below shows the fireworks display over the golden bridge in Sacramento, at the edge of Old Town.

The school calendar has stretched a little at a time until July has become the only summer month left to today's kids. But oh, what fun July can be! To celebrate the month, I'm sharing some of my favorite quotations about July and summer.

"July is a blind date with summer." - Hal Borland

What a fun idea! I can happily "date" summertime if July is the meetcute we share. 

From the Blue Mountain Blog comes this verse:

"Barbeques and picnics,/ Swimmers soaking up the rays./ Bike rides in the country./ Shady spots on sunny days.../ Summertime vacations./ Lemonade on front porch swings./ Special thoughts and memories of July's most favorite things."

Writer Jenny Han claims that "Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August." As one born in winter, I claim exceptions to that rule, but I can see where she gets the idea. 

World-class competitive eater Joey Chestnut has a different ambition: "I'd like to go out on top, preferably breaking a world record on the fourth of July." I've never aspired to become a competitive eater--although at times, I suspect I almost qualify--but setting any kind of record on the Fourth of July does sound like a thrill.

This summer, July for Roger and me brought travel and family time. We shared the Fourth with a son, the following week with our daughter, and the one after that with my sister, adding visits with a couple of brothers along the way. If July brings nothing but some extended family time, that's reason enough to love it. 

Happy summer!

July New Release

Someone wants her ranch and will do anything to get it...

Sylvie McLane knows and loves the McLane Mountain Ranch located outside Dillon, Montana. But when gunfire causes her to be thrown off her horse and left dangling off the edge of a cliff, she can’t ignore the fact that someone wants her dead. Former Navy SEAL Dawson Steele comes to her rescue, but can she trust him? Can she trust anyone? The attacks come from all sides, forcing her to accept Dawson’s offer to take on the role of her bodyguard.

Dawson Steele is still recovering from several surgeries to remove shrapnel from his abdomen thanks to his last op that had gone sideways, but that isn’t going to stop him from protecting Sylvie. However, his time in Montana is limited—he has never wanted to be stuck in one place. The warm ocean breeze of San Diego calls to him, but he won’t leave Sylvie to face this threat alone. There are too many possible suspects, and he believes the culprit is staying close to the ranch. As they race to uncover the truth, Dawson is prepared for the worst. What he doesn’t expect is for Sylvie to steal his heart.

House Calls for the Holidays by Pat Simmons

 For seven years now, I have tried to pen heartwarming holiday stories that show the spirit of Christmas.

My offering for 2022 is about my grand-pup Dr. Avery. It's part of the Sweet Romance Reads' Puppies for Christmas collection.

Here's a snippet:

A doctor. A nurse. A matchmaker.

Chase McCall couldn’t have survived the holidays without her petite Goldendoodle. She named him Dr. Avery because he healed her broken heart after a bad breakup. She plans to spend the holidays on the road away from St. Louis with her pooch in tow.

Sawyer Kahill needs a fresh start, so he relocates to Raleigh, working in the IT field. He’s enjoying life until his aunt has a health scare back in St. Louis. 

He plans to bring her back with him after he suspects someone is trying to take an advantage of her. Every time he’s on the phone with Aunt Edith, she raves about Dr. Avery and his nurse making house calls.

The joke is on him.

Sawyer has no idea the regular visits are from a dog named Dr. Avery and Chase who is an RN by profession. His aunt refuses to budge from St. Louis.

 After a chance meeting with Chase in the hospital, he learns she now moving to Raleigh.

Will their paths ever cross again? Not unless they both come home for the holidays. 

Leave that up to the Lord and Aunt Edith. PRE-ORDER  .99

Deadlines by Janice Lynn

 As I sit down to write my blog, deadlines are what’s heavy on my mind. Why deadlines? Well, I’m on one. My next Hallmark is due September 1st and after that I have 3 more deadlines between then and June 2023. Eek. When I throw in work, family, holidays, and life in general, I get a little tense thinking about all those necessary daily word counts. Merrillee's post about measuring our progress by word counts resonated, because it's how I'm spending my writing days. I have a certain number of words I have to write each day I have allocated for writing and I hit that number before I go to bed. Sometimes it's an easy task and sometimes not so much. But I know my pattern of how I write and what works best for me.  I’ve done lots of deadlines before and made it work by sticking to my required daily word counts. I’ll make it work this time, too. The reality is that I function best on a deadline. When there’s not a time crunch, I tend to fill my time with things other than writing. When I look at my best work, it's been when I've sat down in a time crunch. 

What about you? Do you function best under stress/a deadline or do you freeze up? Are you at your best when you have no time constraints? 

Janice's Wrapped Up in Christmas books from Hallmark Publishing are available, also!

Let's Do It by Merri Maywether

 Many of the activities my story characters encounter are either things I’ve done or hope to do at some point in my life. In 452 Memory Lane, the characters go on a short retreat in northern Montana. While on this retreat, they learn about themselves, each other, and how they interact with the world around them. 

Most of the activities were in the “I hope I get to do this one-day” category. I watched YouTube videos, read blogs, and talked to people who visited places like the one I’d written about in the book. 

Well, we drove by one of the “I hope” activities this month.  I looked over at my husband and said, what do you think about stopping there on the way home? 

In the twenty-five years we’ve been married, I’ve been the adventure seeker, and my husband has been the one to inject pragmatism. When he said, “Let’s do it,” I didn’t give him a chance to reconsider. I bought tickets on my phone. 

It changed the tone of our conversations for the rest of the weekend. Before we knew it, we were standing in front of two instructors explaining how to zip line. I felt empowered, brave, daring, and all the positive words that accompany adventure–until I was on the platform. 

That was when my analytic brain kicked in. When was I supposed to twist the rope? What would happen if my legs hit the ramp too hard? Could a bug fly up my nose? Why did I ask Randy if we could do this?

My husband, the pragmatist, had a blast. Every challenge our instructors gave he embraced. 

We were in the forest's canopy, admiring the Montana mountains in a way I had only seen through pictures. The beauty surpassed hesitation; my husband’s wide grin told me I was right to have made the suggestion. 

By the seventh zip line, the swirl of butterflies in my belly triggered delighted giggles, and my husband declared himself ready to embark on another adventure I’d written for my Ashbrook, Montana characters. 

In the next book, they’re going on a Pacific coast cruise. I don't know how I feel about that.

☀️ ☀️ ☀️

Faith Alexander ran away to Paradise Hills to hide from her past. Back home she has a mother that wants to run her life and the ruins of a marriage that never happened.

A Day in the Life of a Writer by Kimberly Rose Johnson

 For the past six months, this writer's life has been in transition. We are about a week away from completing the little house we've been helping build since the end of March. We joined the building process just after the framing stage.

The plan was to live in the little house, which is the guest house on my parents' property in Montana. However, as life has thrown us curveballs, we are no longer sure how long we will be living here. 

The hope had been that my husband would be able to find remote work so we could live here and help out my parents with meals and such. However, remote work in my husband's field has been hard to come by. We might be moving once again. 

It's kind of crazy that we lived in the same house for 29 years and now we are considering another move in less than six months. Granted, we've been like gypsies with no place to truly call home since selling and moving from our Oregon home in March. 

This writer's life has been scattered at best. That being said, I'm am within five thousand words of finishing my Christmas novella that will be part of the Puppies for Christmas series the bloggers here are publishings this fall. Yay! I seriously wasn't sure I could pull it off.

What does a day in this writers life look like? 

Presently, it changes from day to day. However as of last week, I started my day on social media, then moved on to writing my novella. I spend two to three hours writing. I should note, my writing time is constantly interrupted with questions from my husband about this or that regarding the building of the house. 

I've been sitting outside on the front deck a few feet from the saws and tools the men use to cut wood for whatever project they are doing that day. I surprised myself with how I was able to focus and write. I'm usually someone who needs complete silence to work, but silence has been in short supply here. I guess I've adapted.

Gone are the days I get to pour through emails, spend an hour walking in the middle of the day, watch the first fifteen minutes of Live with Kelly and Ryan, ride my stationary bike, and do Pilates in the middle of the morning. I have no TV service, internet is sketchy at best, I don't have any personal space to work out, and walking is hit and miss due to where we are living. 

I used to have such an ordered life. Literally I had a schedule and kept to it. Life now, is nothing like that, and I'm thrilled if I can do any of the above activities. 

Through the grace of God I am muddling through. I used to write five or so books in a year. I will be content with the one novella this year and that's okay for now.

Currently, I'm participating in a Bookfunnel promo with a lot of Christian romance writers. We each have a book we are giving away with a newsletter signup. Please follow this link to check out the books.

One fun thing that has come from my crazy life is that we have done some traveling. This past weekend we visited Helena, the state capitol of Montana. It's been fun seeing places we've never been as well as places we haven't been to in years. 

Where is your favorite place drive to for a day trip?

Measuring Things by Merrillee Whren


As you can see from the image above, today is National Tape Measure Day. I'm not here just to talk about tape measures, but I did find interesting information about tape measures. On July 14, 1868 Alvin J. Fellows received a patent for "Improvement in Tape Measures." He made life easier for many occupations that use measurements, such as carpenters, seamtresses, or electricians. The retractable tape measure improved on the previous bulky tape measures that didn't fit in a pocket.

But I wanted to talk about another kind of measurement. Word Count. That's a measurement for authors. Word processing programs give an exact word count for what I am writing. When I began writing with the thought of publication in mind, I discovered that many publishers want a certain word count, especially category romance publishers such as Harlequin. 

I started writing a story on a typewriter and thankfully we got a portable computer, or I believe I would never have finished a novel. I was always a terrible typist, and a computer word processing program freed me to make mistakes and easily go back and correct them. The early word processing program I used didn't give word count. I could only estimate the word count using a formula that I barely remember, something about counting words on ten lines and then multiplying them by something. I could also estimate the word count by having twenty-five lines on a page with a certain kind of font. Usually that gave me an estimate of 250 words per page. 

When I finally started using a word processing program that gave me actual word count, I discovered that the estimates were off by quite a bit. Now I look at the word count in the corner to see how many words I have written each day. Sometimes it's disappointing when I don't write as many words as I intended to write. Other days I'm thrilled that I exceeded my planned word count for the day.

Like people who began using the new and improved tape measure, I love having the exact word count at my disposal every day. I recently finished writing my Puppies for Christmas novella. It came in at  38942 words. It is now in the hands of my editor, and if the past is any predictor, she will have me trim a few words. The novella will come out in November as part of the Puppies for Christmas promotion from some of the authors from Sweet Romance Reads.  

Who can resist two cute kids and a dog? They are working hard as matchmakers for their widower dad, but it's Christmas time, a time of year that makes him sad. So they have to work extra hard.

What is something that makes your life easier? A tape measure, a new appliance, or a new gadget of some kind?

More Christmas in July by Vickie McDonough

I'll admit that I'm one of those people who decorate for Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend. It's the perfect time. My husband and sons are off work, and my youngest is home for the holiday, so they can help. We even have leftovers from Thanksgiving, so I don't have to cook on Saturday. 😊

I do not do any Christmas decorating in July, though, because my patriotic decorations are still outDo people really put up Christmas things in July? I'd like to hear from you if you do or know someone who does. 

I have been known to read a Christmas book in July. You've heard about some really good ones here on Sweet Romance Reads this month, but let me tell you about mine.

The Fruitcake Scandal

Pastor Clayton Parsons waited a year to bring his fiancée, Karen, to his new church post. They plan to have a Christmas wedding, but in the meantime, Karen helps the church ladies with various projects, including a bake sale. But revealing her fruitcake recipe gets the church ladies in an uproar and could spell disaster for her
future with Clay.

$2.99 on Amazon / Free KU

Beloved Enemy

As a Union sniper, killing has become easy for Captain Christmas “Chris” Haley. After four long years of fighting against his own countrymen, the once naïve farm boy is now a war-hardened soldier whose faith in God is shaken. Chris is ready to set aside his rifle and return to his Kansas farm. But will his family accept the man he’s become—angry and unsure if he still believes in God?

Chris struggles with being home. His mother's pretty caregiver catches his eye and begins to give him a reason to go on each day. In spite of his bitterness, his heart is softening. But what happens when he learns the secret Hannah is keeping?

$2.99 on Amazon / Free KU

I loved it! Very good, and quite thorough for a short story/novella. There was redemption, forgiveness, and romance. The hero had his issues, but they were understandable, with him coming from war, and he eventually overcame them. An epilogue or a longer ending would have been 5 stars, but still great! Reviewer Indie 28

The Prodigal's Shotgun Wedding

Clay left home after his brother’s death—a death for which he was responsible. After years away he’s finally returning, hoping for reconciliation with his father. But when the stagecoach he’s riding in wrecks and he is injured, he finds himself in a fight for survival. 

Jolie is fleeing a nightmare situation. She desperately hopes becoming a mail-order bride doesn’t land her in a worse place. When the stage crashes and she spends the night alone with a wounded man, she wonders if her intended will still want her. If he doesn’t, what will she do? She has no money and nowhere to go. 

When she marries a stranger, rather than fall prey to a town of woman-hungry men, Jolie can’t help wondering what she’s gotten herself into.

$2.99 on Amazon / Free KU

A sweet romance, that has a lot of fun and excitement thrown in. Sometimes we wonder what God was thinking when things happen, but if we just wait. The best is yet to come! Highly recommend this book. Reviewer Trixie

That's less than $10 for three exciting Christmas reads. I hope you'll add them to your TBR pile.

Don't forget to tell me if you decorate for Christmas in July.

Why Celebrate Christmas in July? by Josie Riviera

 Many of us have heard about or have celebrated Christmas in July. But why?

Some say it's a good opportunity to take advantage of July holiday sales, as retailers have jumped on the "Christmas in July" phenomena. Others cite that reading about and embracing the cold helps to beat the summer heat and humidity.

A popular legend is that Christmas in July began in Brevard, NC, in a summer camp. The year was 1933, and campers decided to celebrate Christmas complete with fake snow and a fake Santa.

If you decide to embrace the July Christmas holiday spirit, here are some ways to celebrate:

Fun summer gift giving: Think pool floats or bubbles or beach towels.

Delicious summer recipes, including frozen chocolate novelties, and graham cracker gingerbread houses.

Embrace the joy of a beautiful season and Happy Christmas in July!

Celebrate Christmas in July with my sweet holiday romance, A Snowy White Christmas. The book is on a Kindle Countdown sale and only 99¢ for a limited time. (U.S. residents only.)
