When Lenora Perry’s dream of becoming an acclaimed singer dies a painful death, she attempts to escape her mistakes by fleeing north—directly into the path of an all-too-dashing Mountie. Though the man in scarlet appears eager to be rid of her, his home provides security, and his sister offers friendship—two things Lenora is desperate for after discovering her pregnancy. With the past dogging her footsteps and her future uncertain, dare she consider new dreams?

Upholding the law makes up the fabric of Constable Edmond Bryce’s existence. As his five years of service draw to an end, he must decide whether or not to continue in his father’s footsteps—an increasingly difficult decision now that Miss Perry has infiltrated his life. Though she’s the daughter of a parson and a close friend to his sister, Edmond can’t push aside the feeling that Lenora hides more than she tells. But duty calls, leaving little time for matters of the heart.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR – Angela K. Couch

To keep from freezing in the Great White North, Angela K. Couch cuddles under quilts with her laptop. Winning short story contests, being a semi-finalist in ACFW’s Genesis Contest, and a finalist in the International Digital Awards also helped warm her up. As a passionate believer in Christ, her faith permeates the stories she tells. Her martial arts training, experience with horses, and appreciation for good romance sneak in there, as well. When not writing, she stays fit (and warm) by chasing after five munchkins.

GUEST POST – The Difference readers make for writers by Angela Couch

I have been a writer for decades without readers. It has only been the past several years that my work has reached the general public. I underestimated the difference. 

I’ve had the goal since I was a child to be published, a desire passed down for a couple generations, from my grandfather to my father and on to me. I imagined how it would feel to have others read and appreciate my stories. In this thing, my imagination lacked. 

To have other people read your work, to hear their appreciation for good, clean literature. To hear their appreciation for the adventure that you took them on, the love story that you unfolded before them. To hear the things they have learned or the emotions they’ve felt because of your words… is very fulfilling. Suddenly, you go from writing for yourself, to writing for your reader because you want to reach them and move them, to make them laugh and cry. 

The next thing you know, you are laughing and crying too. 

It becomes a wonderful cycle of filling someone’s need, of offering a service, and of being given so much in return. Because there is nothing sweeter to a writer’s ears then “I read your book, and it helped me realize…” 

For the record, we also love hearing about how much sleep we made you lose. 😉

Thanks for sharing with my readers today, Angela. I loved reading your perspective on how important your readers are.
