Book Giveaway: An Unexpected Suitor By Anna Schmidt

After years of caring for her brothers and sister, Nola Burns is ready to live out her own dream--running a tearoom on Nantucket. But the return of charming theater entrepreneur Harrison Starbuck and his determination to buy her out may dash her dreams forever.

All Harry offers is a business propostion, but soon finds himself concerned for the woman herself when she receives threatening letters. He doesn't harbor any romantic feelings for the spirited and talented woman, does he? But as the threats escalate, Harry realizes that loving Nola may be his greatest role of all.

Review--loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! I've always been a sucker for turn of the century historicals but Harry and Nola's story grabbed me from the first page. Nola's determination in light of her tragic situation and her ablity to accept Godly people who color outside of the lines is a lesson everyone needs to be reminded of. And Harry is just a doll--confident in his God, focused to reach others for the Lord. The secondary characters--Ellie, Rose, the acting troupe- all added rich landscape to the lovely scenery of Nantucket.

The first person in the continuous USA to leave a comment will receive a copy of An Unexpected Suitor.

Chapter Four Turner glanced between his cousin and Celia—no, not Celia.  William’s fiancĂ©e. The “confused” lady he was kidnapping at the bequest of his cousin could be nothing more than Miss Sheldon to him. And as long as he didn’t think of her by her Christian name, she’d stay nothing more in his mind than the living version of the portrait his cousin had painted.  A glorified portrait, he had eventually concluded after weeks of studying it, for no woman with as little guileless and much loveliness as had been captured on that canvas could love or even wish to marry a man as scheming, greedy, and narcissistic as h…

Tag! I'm it! Writer's Process Blog Tour!

Writers are always trying to find ways to reach our readers so when Camille Eide contacted me about a continuous author blog tour where I answer a few questions, I jumped at the chance. So thank you, Camille! Please go visit her at Extreme Keyboarding.

Question 1: What am I working on now?
At the moment, I'm writing a proposal for a new series based in the Georgia gold rush--and yes, there was a gold rush in the North Georgia Mountains in the 1830s. An unconventional woman goes in search of her missing father after her by-the-book uncle arranges a marriage to save the family business.

Question 2: How does my work differ from others in my genre?
A writer friend once told me that I write about strong women facing unusual circumstances in order to do the right thing. I like that. I also create stories around pieces of history most folks have never heard of.

Question 3: Why do I write what I do?
When I first started writing about women in unique historical circumstances, it was because …
