This week, Western romance author Mary Connealy joins us on the podcast to discuss her new book, Inventions of the Heart. She calls her books rom-coms with cowboys, and we discuss her love for wit and humor, how she manages to write some many books, and what three elements are essential for a good book in her estimation. Enjoy our chat!
Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy (book 2 of 3 of the Lumber Baron's Daughters series)
Her heart seeks safety. But will trouble find her even here?
After her sister's marriage, Michelle Stiles is left hiding at Two Harts Ranch with the handsome but stubborn Zane Hart. She's managed to stay one step ahead of her stepfather and his devious plans, but if he finds her, she will no longer be safe.
Zane has problems of his own. Having discovered a gold mine on his property, he must figure out how to harvest it without kicking off a gold rush. Michelle, educated and trained to run her father's business, wants to manage all aspects of the mine, but Zane thinks for a person so smart she can have some misguided ideas. Running the mining operation will be a dangerous job, and he can't risk putting her in harm's way.
But danger finds Michelle anyway when she's suddenly attacked. If they go to the sheriff, they'll reveal her location, but if they do nothing . . . their troubles have only just begun.
