A Give-away and My Two Favorite Heroes Help Celebrate My New Website


9781440567049I am so pleased to reveal my new website. In celebration, I am giving away a print copy of Love’s Spirit to two lucky winners randomly selected from the comments to this post. I will draw the winners on May 21.

Also to celebrate the reveal of my new website, I am going to talk about my two favorite heroes: Jonathon Brentwood from Love’s Destiny and Love’s Spirit and Joe Riley from The Cavanaugh House.

A dedicated colonial patriot, his bravery is known throughout the colonies as he sails the Destiny along the coast promoting the cause of freedom. Thinking that his life is complete with his love for his ship and his land, he is thrown off-course when Emily Wentworth steals his heart. His love for her drives his every action from then on, including risking his life to take her home to England.

Lessons from his tour of duty in Vietnam have taught him respect for others and infinite patience. Now he runs his own construction business. His dilemma is falling in love with Jesse Graham who is fiercely guarding her independence…and her heart. He is willing to give Jesse her space and hopes that, in the end, they will be together.


What I Love About Both of Them

While Jonathon is suave, intense, and imposing, having commanded his crew and run Brentwood Estate all of his adult life, Joe is relaxed and reassuring—someone you immediately  trust. What they have in common is their passion and their sense of humor. Jonathon teases Emily because she is so serious about life; Joe and Jesse have verbal duels that attempt to cover the sparks that are flying. It goes without saying that I love how they love the woman in their lives.

  1. beautiful header for your site. The hero for the last novel length manuscript I completed sprang forth fully formed, which is always a treat. The one for my forthcoming short let me know he looked like Ian Somerhalder but was tight lipped otherwise. Funny how those characters are. Love the inspiration for Joe of the Cavenaugh House.

      Thank you, Lola. My husband Rich created my header from his photographs. He also took the picture for the cover of The Cavanaugh House. Interesting how different our heroes can be, isn’t it?

  2. Your website has a fresh new look….I follow you on Facebook, so I’ll be back! Betty, I loved your 3 novels and look forward to reading more of your work. In Love’s Spirit and Love’s Destiny I was so impressed with your knowledge of the time period. Thank you for putting a face on Jonathan for us!
