Lianne Simon’s father was a dairy farmer and an engineer, her mother a nurse. She grew up in a home filled with love and good books. Tiny and frail, Lianne struggled physically, but excelled at her studies. In 1970, she was awarded a scholarship to the University of Miami, from which she graduated in 1973. Fond memories of her time there remain with her. Some years later, after living in several states, and spending time abroad, Lianne settled in to the suburbs north of Atlanta, where she now lives with her husband and their cat. While seeking answers to her own genetic anomalies, Lianne met a family whose daughter was born with one testis and one ovary. As a result of that encounter, she spent more than a decade answering inquiries on behalf of a support group for the parents of such children. Lianne hopes that writing this book will, in some small way, contribute to the welfare of children born between the sexes. Website * Facebook * Twitter * Amazon * Goodreads

Her Forever Love Horses Heal Hearts Book 4 by Kimberly Beckett Genre: Contemporary Romance

Liz Randall is coming home a champion.

Fifteen years after leaving Columbus to follow her dream of riding dressage for the United States Equestrian Team, Liz has returned with a gold medal, a determination to raise her teenage daughter, and a dream to expand her therapeutic riding practice.

Falling in love again isn’t in her plan, especially not with Jason Merrick, her first love, the boy whose heart she broke all those years ago. The man with whom she shares more than just a history.

Jason Merrick came home a hero.

An Army Ranger seriously wounded in the same attack that killed his best friend, Jason sought the familiar comfort of his hometown to recover. Now he’s ready to build something rather than destroy. What he wasn’t ready for was seeing Liz Randall–the girl who broke his heart fifteen years ago. His growing construction company needs the money remodeling Liz’s stables will bring. That’s the only reason to take the job…or so he tells himself.

The moment they see each other again, feelings that never died come rushing back. Jason knows he’ll do anything to have her. But as much as Liz wants to be his, she has a secret. A secret that, once revealed, could make him walk away from her forever.

He doesn’t know the mob has him in its cross hairs

Lionel Hayes is shocked to discover a world-class jumper among the abused horses he rehabilitates. Unfortunately, the only man with the talent to ride that horse is not only the man of Lionel’s dreams, he has also been recruited by the mob to frame him.

One fateful decision in a moment of weakness destroyed Lionel Hayes’ life as he knew it and led to the death of his longtime partner and lover. At first, he blamed his friend Michael Stafford for his misfortune and sought revenge, but through his work rehabilitating abused horse, and the trust of one special horse, he realized that he had to take responsibility for his actions, and that he and he alone should take the blame. From that day forward, Lionel vowed to restore his image and resume the career that he loved. In the process, he found the horse of a lifetime, Gideon’s Rainbow.

Monty Campbell was a rising star on the international show jumping circuit until he lost his horse to injury. Desperate for a replacement mount, and with the support of the British Equestrian Team, he leaned of Gideon’s Rainbow and knew this horse was for him. To his surprise, the horse’s owner was also a perfect match for him, although the man stubbornly refused to acknowledge it. How could Monty convince Lionel they were meant for each other and would the sinister force that sought to destroy Lionel destroy Monty as well?

Seabiscuit II is the last horse you might imagine as a champion if judged by looks alone.

Hello, reader! (sorry to defy conventions, but I can’t stand writing about myself in the third person. It’s just weird.) I spend a good portion of my time masquerading as dragons larger than some cities, but when I’m not doing that I like to spend my time picking people’s brains. No, no, I don’t mean learning from their experiences, I like the taste of brain matter! Okay, okay, I’ll try to be serious for a minute (I can’t promise for more than one minute though). I’ve been a storyteller for almost as long as I can remember. It started when I was nine. In school, we had an assignment to write a one-page short story. That night, I wrote a nine-page “masterpiece” about a magical pair of shoes and their journeys throughout the western United States before finding an owner who would properly care for and appreciate them. From there, my storytelling grew into DMing D&D games (and other roleplaying games). Naturally, the games eventually led me to start writing stories. I’m not a full-time author (yet), though I am hopeful. Professionally, I’ve done everything from technical support to restaurant management to building custom gaming PCs. I live in Cottonwood Height, UT, with my wife and two beautiful daughters who I’m certain are much smarter than me.     Website * Facebook * Twitter * Instagram * Bookbub * Amazon * Goodreads
