Meet Scarlett Dunn--Author of FINDING PROMISE, a #Historical #Inspirational #Romance

Hi, readers!  Scarlett and I both write for Kensington Books.  I thought you'd enjoy a peek into her historical, inspirational romance--FINDING PROMISE.  Here is a message from Scarlett.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to my lovely readers!

As I've had my nose stuck in a computer screen for the entire year, I've been remiss in telling all of those who have supported me how much I value you. It has been such a joy to know that I have had the opportunity to entertain some of you with my stories. I love writing inspirational stories featuring characters who face difficult circumstances and come out stronger, with the knowledge God is always by their side. We will all face difficulties in life, but I've found it helps to give thanks through those bleak times and recognize He hasn't abandoned us. He is seeing us through the darkness.

My wish for you this coming year is that you follow your dreams. God doesn't put a dream in your heart unless He also gives you the ability to see it through. It may not be easy, it most likely won't be easy, but stay the course. When you are old and look back on your life, you don't want to waste one minute on a "what if" question. Dreams come true with action. Take action by taking the first step. I am certain someone will help you along.

I wish you all a blessed Christmas and New Year.



A trail of danger and dreams…

She may be an heiress, but Parker Promise Sinclair cares more about living an adventurous life than snaring a suitable husband. So it’s no surprise when she joins a Wyoming wagon trail—only to survive a massacre that leaves her with no memory, a target on her back—and her abiding faith tested by the only man who can possibly protect her. 

His gunfighting skills and trail savvy have saved U.S. Marshal Jake McBride more times than he can count. And his instincts tell him the only way to keep Promise alive is to take her along on his high-stakes cattle drive. But she soon proves she can ride and shoot with the best of them—and Jake finds it increasingly difficult to keep himself from falling for her. Soon, with danger closing in, they'll have only one chance to face their doubts, their fears—and their growing love…

FINDING PROMISE was named by Booklist as one of the Top 10 Inspirational Novels of 2015!



USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 91st novel will be released in 2016.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens.  And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
