E.E. Burke's Best of the West: Bestselling Author Kit Morgan

Purchase: http://a.co/1U7u5R5
MEET THE WEAVERS! They’re loud, they’re boisterous, totally unpredictable and, they’re looking for wives. Now all your favorite Weaver books and stories from the Holiday Mail-Order Bride series are together in one volume! Read about Arlan, Benjamin and Calvin Weaver as they traverse life and love on the Weaver farm along with a few added surprises. It’s one big happy family in one big fun-filled book! If you’ve never met the Weaver’s, then here’s a little glimpse:

ARLAN: Arlan had often thought of getting himself a mail order bride, but now that he had, he wasn’t sure the pretty little thing The Ridgley Mail-Order Bride Service sent him was tough enough to handle farm life, let alone his brothers. But Arlan soon found his new little wife was chock full of surprises. In more ways than one.
Samantha Carter never considered becoming a mail order bride. She was to marry as soon as she turned eighteen and be out of her uncle’s hair not to mention his house. But her uncle had other plans, and wanted Samantha for himself. Discovering his intentions, she ran to the only mail-order bride service she knew of, and begged Mrs. Ridgley to send her somewhere, ANYWHERE that would get her away from her lecherous relative. And so, Mrs. Ridgley sent her to Nowhere.

BENJAMIN: The Weaver clan was growing. Not only was Arlan, Ma Weaver’s oldest son and his wife about to have a baby, but Benjamin, one of her identical twins, was about to get his very own mail-order bride! Ma Weaver couldn’t be happier! Sure, Benjamin and his brothers had been sheltered in the small valley where they lived most of their lives, and maybe they didn’t live as fancy as some folks. But they lived well, and Ma Weaver was determined her sons would marry well too.
Charity Cross discovers just that when she becomes Benjamin’s mail-order bride. But Charity has a secret, something with the power to tear them apart if she isn’t careful. The problem is, she has no idea how or what “careful” looks like. Not after what she’s been through …

CALVIN: First Arlan, the oldest, got himself a mail-order bride, followed by his younger brother Benjamin, one of identical twins. Now it was Calvin’s turn. But Calvin’s mail-order bride was different, really different. For one, she was Italian, an immigrant who spoke broken English. She was also the most beautiful woman Calvin had ever seen. But this vision of loveliness had a not so lovely secret. Can Calvin and his new bride make a go of it while other secrets threaten the family’s peaceful existence? Find out in this hilarious romp with the Weavers!

Excerpt

Music could be heard coming from inside the town’s meeting hall along with laughter and a cacophony of voices, many of them female. Calvin and Benjamin quickly finger-combed their reddish brown hair and straightened their jackets. Arlan caught the action and shook his head. “I dunno why ya two bother. What woman in her right mind’s gonna take a shine to the likes of you?”
“Us?” Benjamin said, affronted. “What about you? Yer ‘bout as agreeable as a rattler.”
“And bossy too,” Calvin tossed in.
“Arlan’s right,” their mother said. “You two had better mind your manners. Remember what happened last time we came to town!”
The twins looked at each other and burst out laughing. “Sure ‘nough do, Ma!” Calvin said.
“Yeah, that was one of the best!” added Benjamin.
“Best of what?” Arlan asked. “Embarrassin’ the family?”
“Yer a fine one to talk!” Benjamin said. “After all, wasn’t me or Calvin that got in a fight with Spencer Riley over that Lily Pembrook a few years back.”
“This has nothin’ to do with that,” Arlan said. “I’m talkin’ ‘bout the time ya two made that scarecrow or whatever it was and tossed it at the front window of the meetin’ hall.”
The twins glanced at each other, smiles on their faces. “Oh yeah, we plumb forgot ‘bout that!” Calvin said with glee.
Benjamin smacked him on the back. “Nellie Davis thought it was a real person!”
“You broke the window,” their mother reminded them sourly.
“Yeah, Ma,” Calvin agreed. “But the look on Nellie Davis’ face was worth it!”
“Was it worth it to see me have to pay for it?”
That did the trick. The twins sobered and hung their heads. “Oh, forgot about that,” Benjamin mumbled.
“Don’t worry, Ma.” Calvin put an arm around her. “We’ll make sure nothin’ happens tonight. We ain’t ten years old, ya know.”
“Ain’t ya?” Arlan asked sardonically. He plucked a huge basket from the back of the wagon, glared at his brothers once more, then offered his mother his arm.
“Why, thank you Arlan,” she said. She looked at her other sons. “See boys, this is how it’s done.”
As soon as she and Arlan started for the meeting hall, Calvin offered Benjamin his arm. “Shall we?”
“But of course,” Benjamin said in a high-pitched voice.
Daniel rolled his eyes and shoved past. “Don’t embarrass us!”
The twins stopped short. “Since when’s he worried about that?” Calvin asked.
“Yeah, he don’t usually side with Ma and Arlan,” Benjamin agreed.
“‘Less he’s got somethin’ up his sleeve,” Calvin suggested.
Benjamin sighed. “Looks like we better make sure l’il Daniel ain’t the one that does the embarrassin’ this evening.”
“Yeah, best keep an eye on him,” Calvin slapped his brother on the back. “Let’s have some fun.” They set off at a trot to catch up.

What’s your favorite kind of story to get lost in? 
Action/adventure/romance with a fairy tale flair. Yeah, I know, how many books are there like that? Not many, which is why I write them!

Do you write while listening to music? If so what kind? 
Most of the time, yes! Classical and movie soundtracks.

Which of your characters would you most/least to invite to dinner, and why? 
Most? The Cooke Brothers. Who wouldn’t want to dine with those three gorgeous Englishmen, Duncan, Colin and Harrison?  Least to invite to dinner? Thaddeus Slade. Let’s face it, those of you who’ve read my books, he’s a devil.

What sound or noise do you love? 
There’s a bird that is the last to return every spring in Oregon. Once he’s back, we know summer is coming. His birdsong is a simple, long whistle. That’s it. But in Oregon, that sound says that warm weather is finally coming!

   Which already filmed movie represents your writing style? 
   The Princess Bride

   What story are you working on next, and what inspired it?  
   Mail-Order Bride Ink: Dear Mr. Vander.  Book 4 of the Mail-Order Bride Ink series. This will be the story of Garrett Vander’s son and should be a hoot. He’s much more introverted and quiet than his father and especially his grandfather, Horace Vander, who’s determined his grandson should be groomed to be the next mayor of their little town. Love would only complicate things.

   What is something that not a lot of people know about you but you WISH more people COULD know? 
   Ah, here’s the kicker. That Kit Morgan, is, in fact, a fictional character from Geralyn Beauchamp’s Time Master Series. Kitty Morgan. All those westerns are hers …

Angi Morgan


When hockey phenom Deacon Sanders mistakes Brooke Henderson for a puck bunny, he's set on scoring the ultimate goal with the fiercely sexy bodyguard. Keeping watch from a distance is impossible when everywhere she turns Deacon's there like a loose puck in front of the net. Despite his annoyance that his family thinks he can't keep himself out of trouble, can he convince this Amazon beauty to stop fighting her erotic powers long enough to play his game?

“What’s the sexiest thing about Deacon? My first thought is his smile and of course his hard-as-ice body. But there’s more to sex-appeal than looks. He’s a very humble man who has worked hard for his shot and respects those who work hard, too.” ~Angi

Book Two, April 25th
Book One, April 25th


a new series with a mash-up of 
Angi's favorite genres
* a little comedy
* a little suspense
* a little magic
*and a whole lotta love

"This story, for its small size, contained the perfect mix of romance and suspense! Although plenty of characters were introduced, it was not overwhelming at all. Deacon and Brooke had terrific chemistry together - nothing about their attraction was unrealistic. And I could only be intrigued by the Bodyguards in Heels, founded by Patti Mitchum as a company to employ her various granddaughters, all who have very different…...ah, skills. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the stories that need to be told about Carrie, Emma and Essie!"

RANSOM
USA Today Bestseller Nana Malone
Money, power, prestige...reject. Ransom Cox is --The Player. His whole life, hockey player, Ransom Cox, has watched the people he loves the most reject and leave him. He's learned it's better to be on his own. After the scandal of his wife walking out on him right before the championships, citing his bedroom "over" prowess as the reason, he can't seem to escape the spotlight. The last thing he wants is to be stranded in a cabin with the one girl he's always wanted. The one girl who could destroy him.

“The sexiest thing about Ransom Cox is his ...um...big heart.”






IN SKATES TROUBLE
Kate Meader
Right winger Ford "Killer" Callaghan can't believe he let the anonymous woman who blew his mind slip away into the night. He'll track her down because once could never be enough--even if discovering Addison Williams's identity places her strictly out of bounds. Stolen kisses. Secret hook-ups. Deliciously forbidden in every way. Can a passion that started in the dark find a lifetime of love in the light?

"The sexiest thing about my hero is his tenacity. This guy won't give up--especially when it comes to the out-of-bounds woman he really should be skating away from."





CAGED
USA Today Bestseller Virginia Nelson

The Ragin' Cajuns right winger, Oliver Tremblay, learned that nothing good can stay when he lost his parents on 9/11. Maisie plans to melt the ice king's heart and prove she's just the girl to go skate to skate with him, whether he likes it or not.

The sexiest thing about Oliver Tremblay is his heart of gold... which, coincidentally, is encased in ice.”






MAKING HIS MOVE
Susan Scott Shelley
Backup goaltender Rod Fraser is a free agent in every sense. He's ready for a new team, and hoping for another shot with his best friend's sister. But Arielle Charton thinks Rod's interest is fleeting, and she doesn't need the distraction. She's on a mission to rebuild her life. Rod's made his living making impossible saves, but it will take the impossible to convince the shy artist that she's captured his heart.

"The sexiest thing about my hero is his enthusiasm. Rod works hard and plays even harder. On the ice and off it, he's the one guy who everyone wants to be around."

CHECKING YES
Misty D. Waters
Family secrets drove star left-winger Cooper Banks away from the love of his life, but hot off a championship win he's no longer satisfied with second place. Except the daddy's girl he left behind is now a woman no longer impressed by his charming smile. So when Savannah Jane Scott decides to put Cooper in the penalty box, she aims to keep him there...for good this time.

"With Cooper it's his instinct to protect and support those he loves, even if it means hurting his public image or giving up the things he values most."
