Romantic Moments 2--It's Reveal Day!

This week's hostess is Michelle Massaro

I just love Fridays!  It's time to reveal our authors and books.  If you missed the excerpts, you can read them here.

Well, I am so excited because I have the fabulous privilege of hosting a red-letter Clash this week!  Both of our excerpts are "firsts" for different reasons:

Excerpt A:
Mary began to relax. Daniel’s voice was soothing to her spirit. By the time the brush had reached the crown of her head, she was closing her eyes, the tension falling from her face.
Daniel smoothed her soft locks with his hand. “There. Your hair is lovely.”
 ...is taken from The Road to Deer Run by Elaine Marie Cooper, the first self-published book to compete in the general arena here at COTT.  About the book:

The war had already broken the heart of Mary Thomsen, a young colonial woman from Massachusetts.  It had also broken the spirit of British soldier Daniel Lowe, a wounded prisoner of war in a strange land.

They were enemies, brought together by need.  Would their differences overshadow the yearnings of their hearts?  Or would the bitterness of war keep them apart?

Come back tomorrow for our interview with Elaine!

Excerpt B:
The rescuer smiled, revealing a dimpled grin that took her breath away. “What about the rest of you?”
Well, what do you think? I love meeting handsome men when I look like a drowned rat.
...is taken from Making Waves by Lorna Seilstad, our first-ever excerpt to come to us via a nomination by a reviewer.  About the book:

It's 1895, and spunky Marguerite Westing is thrilled to discover that her family will summer at Lake Manawa! Escaping her boring suitor, Roger, Marguerite stumbles upon two new loves---sailing and her instructor, Trip. But when her father's gambling threatens to ruin them all, will she marry Roger to save her family's name and fortune?

Wednesday we'll get to sit down with Lorna!
