This week on the Inkwell, we're celebrating the release of Diamond in the Rough, first in the Charm & Deceit series, co-authored by Jennifer AlLee and Lisa Karon Richardson.
I'm hosting the party today--which means it's a bit goofy. Somehow, Hugh Jackman is involved in a 3-legged race and-- well, just visit and see what's up.
As for the book we're celebrating, well, I love this book. It's funny but also has some pointed comments about hate and redemption. Run over to the Inkwell and enter to win the copy! (Or to Amazon to pick it up!)
Here's more info:
Grant Diamond is a professional gambler on the run from his past. When
he comes across a wagon wreck, the chance to escape his pursuers is too
good a gamble to pass up, and he assumes the identity of the dead wagon
driver. His plan takes an unexpected turn when local heiress Lily Rose
mistakes him for the missionary she had asked to come work with the
Wiyot Indians. Seeing Eureka as a promising place to lay low, Grant
plays along. Before he knows it, he's bluffing his way through sermons
and building an Indian school. But with a Pinkerton on his trail and a
rancher rousing fresh hatred against the Indians, Grant fears the new
life he's built may soon crumple like a house of cards.
