Book Spotlight and Giveaway with Author Linda Yezak!

I’m excited to bring you yet another fab giveaway! This time, my author friend Linda Yezak is here for a book spotlight of her latest book Give the Lady a Ride

Patricia Talbert is a high-class social coordinator from New York. Talon Carlson is a rugged bull rider from Texas. He thinks she’s too polished. She thinks he’s insane.

 Opposites aren’t quick to attract when the lady who enters the cowboy’s world is on a mission to sell the ranch. But a box of letters changes her mission-letters of unshakable faith and a love deeper than anything she’s ever experienced.

 Soon she finds his integrity appealing. Her spunk draws him in. He has the faith she craves; she may be the love he longs for. But faith and love aren’t achieved in a single weekend.

 To buy time to explore the possibilities between them, she issues a challenge: “Teach me to ride bulls.”

 From here on, they’re in for the ride of their lives.

If you love contemporary romance, you will want to read this book!

Finally, let’s learn a bit about the woman behind this fabulous book!

Linda W. Yezak holds a BA in English, a graduate certificate in Paralegal Studies, and a bucket list as long as her arm. Among the things on the list is owning a stable full of horses, and since that’s not likely to happen any time soon, she includes horses in each of her novels, from her contemporary western romance Give the Lady a Ride and her current work, The Cat Lady’s Secret, to her work-in-progress, a contemporary western romance series tentatively called “Family First.” Until the day she can retire with her husband to their land in Central Texas and ride to her heart’s content, she’ll continue with her writing and freelance editing careers.

  1. Your book sounds wonderfu. The box of letters really draws me in wondering where theyu came from. E-mail subscriber.

  2. Thank you, Theresa. The box held love letters between Patricia’s aunt and uncle. Just reading them inspired her to seek a deeper faith–but I don’t think Patricia’s aunt Loretta would’ve expected to find her on the back of a bull!

  3. This is a book I think I am going to enjoy! Looking forward to reading it, whether I win it or even if I have to buy it!

  4. Linda,this sounds like a wonderful book!! I so look forward to reading it..It sounds like a book I won’t be able to put down!! Thanks for all the work you put in to writing the story!!

    1. I think everyone would get a kick out of it, even brvan71! You’d be surprised how many male readers I have–probably because it’s not a “mushy” romance. The guys like the ranch and rodeo scenes. :0)

  5. Sounds like a good book. If I win, I’ll give the book to the Alamance Christian School library in Graham, NC
    You can yahoo [dot] com me @ godleyv 😉

  6. Looks like a great book to read. Good luck on your new book The Cat Lady’s Secret.

    I am a subscriber.

    1. @Vera–I hope you read it before you give it away! 😀

      @Beth–thanks for the good wishes for Cat Lady. I’m excited about that one. Can’t wait till it’s published!

      Good luck, everyone!

  7. Sounds like a great story – thanks for sharing. It is very helpful for me to read these blogs to get ideas for my reading list

  8. I love a story about a city gal and country guy there is always so much drama before they realize they are in love. Just wondering what twist and turns you have put in this story for us. And the letters, oh so excited to see what all they say in them. Sounds like a wonderful read. Thank you Linda for writing what sounds like a great romance novel. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. I was surprised to discover during my research that women have their own bull riding association. And I discovered a friend’s grandmother was a rider back in the early 20th century–but she was a ranch woman through and through. Not a New York socialite!

    1. You wouldn’t believe: My mother gave me all the love letters between her and Dad when he was stationed in Korea back in the ’50s and made me *promise* not to read them. She wanted us to burn them. Broke my heart. That was one time I wanted to go back on a promise!

  10. Trying to post again. Could not log into my acct.

    Opposites attraction, fighting the feeling, has to be a great book Linda.
    I love historical romance with suspense. I know I will love your book Linda since it has what I love to read. So much fun to watch the H&H sparring and fighting each other and can’t wait to see if it ends HEA. lol
