Joyce Livingston has done many things in her life (in addition to being a wife, mother of six, and grandmother to oodles of grandkids, all of whom I love dearly). From being a television broadcaster for eighteen years, to lecturing and teaching on quilting and sewing, to writing magazine articles on a variety of subjects. She's danced with Lawrence Welk, ice-skated with a Chimpanzee, had bottles broken over her head by stuntmen, interviewed hundreds of celebrities and controversial figures, and many other interesting and unusual things. But now, when she isn't off traveling to wonderful and exotic places as a part-time tour escort, her days are spent sitting in front of her computer, creating stories. Joyce became a widow in 2004. In 2008, she married her Sunday school teacher, Pastor Dale Lewis (who had also lost his spouse), and became a pastor’s wife, serving daily with him in his ministry. Four of her books have been named Contemporary Book of the Year in the Heartsong Readers Poll, and she was voted Favorite Author of the Year 3 times. In addition, her Heartsong book, One Last Christmas, won the coveted Contemporary Book of the Year award given by The American Christian Fiction Writers organization. In addition to writing for Barbour, Joyce also writes for Love Inspired. Her first venture into a larger women's fiction book is THE WIDOWS' CLUB, also published by Barbour Publishing, soon to be followed up with a second book, INVASION OF THE WIDOWS' CLUB. Joyce feels her writing is a ministry and a calling from God, and hopes readers will be touched and uplifted by what she writes. What's on the horizon for Joyce? More and better books that she hopes will please her readers!

Can a former privateer and a determined heiress find lost treasure in 1725?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

Pasts Collide in New Orleans when a Treasure Goes Missing
The last time New Orleans attorney Jean-Luc Valmont saw Maribel Cordoba, a Spanish nobleman’s daughter, she was an eleven-year-old orphan perched in the riggings of his privateering vessel proving herself as the best lookout on his crew. Until the day his infamy caught up with them all and innocent lives were lost. Unsure why he survived but vowing to make something of the chance he was given, Jean-Luc has buried his past life so deep that no living person will ever find it—until a very much alive and very grown up Maribel Cordoba arrives on his doorstep and threatens all he now holds dear.

Kathleen Y'Barbo's The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection includes the rollicking romances of three amazing young women; an adventure-seeking heiress pretending to be a governess to go west, a feisty well-to-do society girl longing to become a journalist and chase the story of a lifetime, and the millionaire's daughter who is being asked to marry for the good of the family business . Fans of westerns will find themselves transported to frontier Colorado, and into stories with independent heroines, adventure, love, and ambition.

 

ABOUT The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper

Roman Holiday meets Mary Poppins in this Gilded Age tale of Eugenia "Gennie" Cooper, a New York socialite who takes advantage of a rare opportunity to step into the world of the dime novels she secretly loves. From the splendor of Fifth Avenue's mansions to the gilded homes of Denver silver barons and the rugged Leadville mines, Gennie's adventure as a governess soon becomes a love story despite the rocky start she has with widower Daniel Beck and his daughter Charlotte.

 

ABOUT Anna Finch and the Hired Gun

Anna Finch's father desperately wants to marry her off, but Anna's not having much success, mostly because she's much better at the written word than the spoken word. When she's around an eligible man, she becomes completely tongue-tied. It doesn't help that the awful man at the newspaper taunts her with constant mentions in his "Perish the Thought" gossip column.

 

When Anna encounters the infamous lawman and outlaw Wyatt Earp, she sees her chance to finally achieve her dream of becoming a reporter. In this capacity, she finds love and trouble in equal measure when she convinces the dying gunfighter Doc Holliday to tell her his story. Her freedom to meet with Holliday is hampered, however, by Pinkerton agent Jeb Sanders, who's been hired to keep an eye on her--and keep her away from nobleman and notorious playboy Edwin Beck. Once Jeb realizes what Anna's up to, his annoyance at being forced to babysit a rich girl is swamped by his need to exact revenge on Doc Holliday.

 

As the reporter and the detective get more tangled in Doc Holliday's story and each other, will their opposing goals tear

them apart--or bring them together?

 

ABOUT The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck

Charlotte Beck wants to go to college, but her father would rather she get married and spend her days painting. Alex Hambly's aristocratic family is in financial straits, and he has two options: either sell off the family's Colorado silver mine or marry a rich, American heiress. Charlotte's father makes them a deal: he'll allow Charlotte to go to college and be the instrument of Alex's financial salvation on one condition--that they agree to get married. Seeing no way out, Charlotte and Alex find themselves engaged. They agree that they'll have the marriage annulled as soon as possible and go back to their own lives. Except Alex isn't sure he wants the annulment. He sets out to woo his wife for real, and Charlotte suddenly finds that her marriage has become very inconvenient indeed.
