Vonnie Davis, is one of my chapter mates with my Romance Writers of America chapter, From the Heart Romance Writers (more about these fantastic folks later).
When it comes to the business side of writing, I’m a novice. When it comes to computer technology, I’m illiterate. I can’t remember the specific question I had asked our From the Heart Romance Writers’ members, but Vonnie was the first to get back to me with advice. She’s continue to advise and support me ever since. Not only did she offer suggestions on promoting “Burgers and Hot Chocolate” in Winter Wonders, she interviewed me on her blog.
In June 2011 The Wild Rose Press released Vonnie’s first novel, Storm’s Interlude.
Nurse Rachel Dennison comes to Texas determined to prepare her new patient for a second round of chemo. What she isn’t counting on is her patient’s twin brother, Storm Masterson. Despite her initial attraction, Storm has two things Rachel can’t abide: a domineering personality and a fiancée. Half Native American, with the ability to have "vision dreams," Storm dreams about Rachel for three nights before her arrival. Both are unprepared for the firestorm of emotions their first encounter ignites. Ultimately, it is Rachel’s past—an abusive, maniacal ex-boyfriend—that threatens to keep them apart…and Storm’s dreams that bring them together again.
Nominated for 2011 Book of the Year by The Long and Short Reviews, Storm’s Interlude was also a finalist for the Virginia Romance Writers HOLT Medallion Award in the category of Best Book by a Virginia Author and Best Mainstream/Single Title.
I’m excited to announce that just last week The Wild Rose Press released Vonnie’s novella, Those Violet Eyes, part of the “Honkey Tonk Hearts” series.
Evie Caldwell hates her life. Five years ago, she gave up college and her dream of teaching to care for her ailing mother. Now, she's trapped taking care of her worthless brother and the family ranch. Waiting tables to earn her way out of Texas, the last thing she wants is a muscleman with a macho Marine attitude complicating her life. But, oh, how that man makes her insides melt.
Wounded vet Win Fairchild returns to Texas to heal, find a piece of his soul, and open a ranch for amputee children. Finding someone to love is not on his agenda. But when he starts work at the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk, a spitfire with violet eyes and a major attitude instantly captures his heart.
Evie just wants to escape, but now that Win knows what he wants, can he convince Evie to stay in Texas—and his bed?
