Arizona Aussie

I grabbed another S.Q. Eads' book to read after work yesterday afternoon -- Arizona Aussie.
Dr. Randee Lambert is a veterinarian from Australia, but she's on sabbatical from her profession to model western wear while trick riding and preforming stunts. Her next job is on a ranch in Arizona
Scott Harrison, owner of that ranch, is recovering from injuries he received from the last air-headed female that set foot on his ranch. There's no way he's going to allow another one anywhere near his place.
So why is there a beautiful blond in the pen with his prize Brahma bull? And why, exactly, is his prize Brahma bull sporting an injured leg?

When Aussie vet meets Arizona rancher it's the beginning of World War III, and this time the two countries are not allies.
This is such a fun, happy story, and I found myself laughing out loud in several places. It also made me think about the verse from Proverbs..."as iron sharpeneth iron..." Randee and Scott need some rough edges knocked of their personalities, and like iron striking iron, sparks fly every time they come in contact with each other.
I really appreciate how this writer makes faith and Christian principles a natural, integral part of her stories and her characters' lives. It doesn't feel forced or added at the last minute to help the story qualify as "inspirational" romance.
Need a fun, Christian romance to read? Check out Arizona Aussie. It'll make you smile; maybe even laugh out loud!

When Love is wRight

I have read through a bunch of shorter-length e-books from Amazon lately, taking advantage of the inexpensive or even free e-books offered. It's a good way to find new authors and have something quick to read when time is short.

And this week I found a little gem. When Love is wRight by SQ Eads.

The story has elements that I love; a spunky, independent heroine and a pure, 100% alpha-male hero. The story opens with a comedy of errors where the heroine proposes to the hero. She's not serious. He is. And the, on.
The story is not all that long, in paperback only 298 pages, but the characters are well-fleshed out, including some very interesting secondary characters, and the scenery in the book is drawn so well I could see it in my head very vividly. By the end of the book, the location reminded me of the old John Wayne movie Hatari!, which I love.
If you're looking for a fun, delightful romance, look no further than When Love is wRight. The paperback is under $10, and the Kindle version is under $5 right now. As for me, I'm off to check into more SQ Eads reads.
Happy reading!
