12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaways: Angela Ruth Strong's Christmas story

Let's welcome my author friend Angela Ruth Strong to the blog!

She's agreed to give away ONE e-book of her Christmas story Finding Love in Big Sky, Montana.

Meet Angela:


Author Bio:

Angela Ruth Strong sold her first Christian romance novel in 2009 then quit writing romance when her husband left her. 

Ten years later, God has shown her the true meaning of love, and there's nothing else she'd rather write about. 

Her books have since earned TOP PICK in Romantic Times, been optioned for film, won the Cascade Award, and been Amazon bestsellers. 

She also writes non-fiction for SpiritLed Woman. To help aspiring authors, she started IDAhope Writers where she lives in Idaho, and she teaches as an expert online at WRITE THAT BOOK.

~*~
Here's the blurb and cover for Angela's book:



Bright Star Ranch led him to her — but will he stay?

Josh Lake is forced to head home for the holidays after he’s suspended from his job in the city, but running into Paisley Sheridan could be exactly what he needed. 

Not only does she board him at her ranch in exchange for his advertising expertise, but spending the Christmas season with her in Big Sky, Montana, brings more joy than he’s felt in a long while. Is he willing to give up the lavish lifestyle he’s worked for in exchange for the gift of love?

The last thing Paisley wants for Christmas is to spend time with Josh Lake — the guy who broke her heart in high school — but until her bank loan goes through, she has to take all the free help she can get. Unfortunately, Josh seems to want back in her life again, and the town’s quirky coffee shop owners don’t help by hanging mistletoe at every opportunity. 

Will Paisley succeed in driving him away, or will she find the healing needed to have hope for a future together?

  1. Wow, Angela, I have to admit that the first line of your bio threw me for a loop because I sure didn't expect it. But it did something else too. It showed me you not only have a story to tell, but an experienced heart from which to tell it.

    I wish you and yours a happy, healthy, and holy holiday season.

    Hugs,
    Julie

  5. I grew up in Idaho, so I've already visited. The only way I would look for love is if my husband passes. At this point in my life, I can't really see me starting over with someone new, since marriage is so hard already. ;)

    1. Where in Idaho did you grow up? What's your favorite Montana memory? Also, way to keep your commitment to your husband. That is a beautiful thing.

  6. I would visit Montana if I could, no matter what! I visited about 10 years ago and loved it--I would go back again in a heartbeat. If I would find true love there, that would just make it better :-)

  9. Someday I would like to visit Montana. But not to find true love -- I have that with my hubby of 52 years. :)
    We have a friend that comes from Montana and he is always singing it's praises. And we have some other acquaintances who lived in Montana for a bit.
    I wouldn't mind being in Montana in the summer, but I don't think I would like winter -- too cold.

    1. I got to drive the Florida Keys in a Mustang a couple years ago. So fun! I do have a book set there too, if you're interested. The Princess and the P.I. The setting is very different from Montana, but just as wonderful.

  16. I've been to Montana, and I'd love to go back. If I knew true love was waiting there for me, I'd get on the next plane. Of course,I found my true love long ago, but that doesn't mean that a girl can't dream of others.

I have a huge photo Of them in the Montana mountains hanging on my wall. I hear there is still cowboys there. I would definitely go to Montana to find love.
