Montana Rose finds Cassie Griffin facing her husband’s death and living alone with her unborn child in Montana Territory. She finds herself fair game for every ill-bred, foul-mouthed suitor in town. That is, until Red Dawson steps in to make an offer.
I moved from Texas to the Rocky Mountains for this series—a big jump.

This is me wearing my Christy Finalist medal standing beside the three books in the Married in Montana Series. Montana Rose, The Husband Tree and Wildflower Bride.
I'd never seen the cover for Wildflower Bride before and it was a thrill to see them together.
Shalyn Hooker. Kaye Dacus and Angie Brillhart at the personality booth at ICRS. I went to the personality booth six times but could never get a personality.
Me doing a signing with MaryLu Tyndall and Kaye Dacus at ICRS in Denver. We are the happiest looking people EVER!!!!!!!!!

Which is nominated for a Christy Award.
I'm spending this whole week in fevered anticipation about the award, 'cuz I'm figuring to lose, so I might as well enjoy hoping, right? That's the same logic I used when I encouraged my children to whip themselves into a frenzy over Christmas presents. The truth is going to be grim, so just enjoy the anticipation.

Okay, just let me enjoy this for ONE SECOND okay. I'm sure there will be reviews that are less wonderful so give me this tiny chance.
I found this, the first customer review I've found anywhere for Montana Rose. It appeared there on the first day it was released.
Mary Connealy is an author who truly knows how to grab your attention right from the get go.
As Cassie Griffin watches her husband get buried, she feels utterly hopeless. Alone and pregnant, she has nowhere to turn. Thank God for the likes of Red Dawson, who steps up to marry her, take her back to his home, and care for her.
Though this decision is sudden, it is the only way to keep Cassie safe from slimy villain Wade Sawyer.
Connealy has created two humble, innocent characters in Cassie and Red. Readers will thrill in watching them grow up together, learn together, and best of all, love together.
There are some honest laugh-out-loud scenes as Cassie fumbles to learn about Ranch Life, as well as a sincerely sweet, tear-jerking moment when Cassie finally gives birth.
The focus may be on Cassie and Red, but the story is full of dynamic characters. Side characters such as the rough and tough Belle and her daughters, and the lovely Muriel round out the plot, leaving openings for future installments.
There is also plenty of Connealy's signature action - fights, weather, wild animals - to keep you turning the pages late into the night.
Connealy is a master of keeping solid Christian values in her books, without the message feeling too overwhelming. I am very excited to continue with this new series!

I draw one name from my newsletter subscribers every month. Jennifer already emailed and said she got the newsletter and the news that she won.
She said she's sending a picture too. I'll post that here.
To get your name in for my newsletter book drawing you must subscribe.
You can do that on the RIGHT side of this blog by typing in your email address right below the words:
JUST FOR LAUGHS
That's my newsletter's name and no, it's not all that funny.
Why do you ask?
In retrospect I kind of wish I'd called my newsletter, Mary Connealy's Newletter.
That would take off so much PRESSURE.
Plus people would maybe know what it was, as opposed to thinking it's some weird spam
illegally trafficing in laughing gas or something.

Now THAT woman knows how to write a blog and make it fun.
I'd steal all her ideas except I never get around to it.
Gotta pencil that in soon.
Go see if I made any sense by clicking here.
And her website is about the most gorgeous one I've ever seen.
Website envy, is soooooooooo unattractive, I'm fighting it.
Part of the fight is sending my readers there, KNOWING YOU WILL NEVER COME BACK ONCE YOU'VE SEEN HERS.
Isn't there a World War II song about this?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Paree?
It's kinda like that, only not.
And there's a chance to win
by leaving a comment on Cheryl's blog.
NOT MINE. That will do you no good, though it would be really FRIENDLY of you.
Well, I suppose it might do you some good in the COSMIC sense, in that we're all a better happier people if there are lots of comments on MARY CONNEALY'S blog.
But no book will come of it.
So go here: http://cherylstjohn.blogspot.com/2009/07/mary-connealy-montana-rose.html
Leave a comment.
Get your name in the drawing for:
AND I'm on Tina Dee's website today, too.
Tina is one of the masterminds behind Bustles and Spurs, which I am an member and official Weak Link on.
You can go read Bustles and Spurs, you'll have fun, but that's not where I am, nor is it where you'll get a shot at winning a book.
This is on Tina's personal blog.
