How do you like your Oregon Trail?

I loved playing Oregon Trail. Unfortunately my computer outpaced the game. But my fascination with the hard life on the Oregon Trail never went away. I’ve numerous books on pioneer cooking, life from women’s perspective on the trail, The Oregon Trail field guide and so on. I thought about doing a series on the trails, but it is years out, lol. Never mind the research I’ve done already!

So until then, I read.

I recently read a book about the Oregon Trail I just loved. So I read the series. Then found another by the same author. So I read that series. Then I found a spin off of that series and I’m knee deep in that series too!

So, to one of the nicest authors I’ve met, thank you for a wonderful series!

They are christian historical romances. Wonderful tales about life in America when it was just beginning. Well written, engaging characters that all end up in a HEA. All on the Oregon Trail!

Here’s to Kathleen Ball! Pick up her series and enjoy! If you are in KU, they are there also. Well worth the time and the books left me with a smile on my face and a desire to read more!

https://www.amazon.com/Kathleen-Ball/e/B007QNUTC8

I started out of order. Normal, but I had to go back to read the rest. They easily were read alone, but I had to know the other stories!

I’ve got a giant phobia I need to get over by a very important deadline, along with a best friend gunning for meddler of the year. Her mission? To get me over my fear—and under her brother—in a two-birds-one-stone plan that I could strangle her for executing.

This right here is why I’ve never told her how I’ve felt about her older brother all these years. This exact, disturbing reason.

Because as far as crushes on the big bad brother of childhood best friends go, imagine the hottest, most swoonworthy, and intensely protective man you can, add more muscles than you could lick in a lifetime, then throw a Navy SEAL uniform on him.

Yeah, that’s Corwin Hale.

And now that Corwin knows about my hidden fear and hidden feelings, he’s taking matters into his own hands.

For the record, his methods? Highly effective.

STEALING BEAUTY

Dorian Blackwell, the Blackheart of Ben More, is a ruthless villain. Scarred and hard-hearted, Dorian is one of Victorian London’s wealthiest, most influential men who will stop at nothing to wreak vengeance on those who’ve wronged him…and will fight to the death to seize what he wants. The lovely, still innocent widow Farah Leigh Mackenzie is no exception-and soon Dorian whisks the beautiful lass away to his sanctuary in the wild Highlands…

COURTING DESIRE

But Farah is no one’s puppet. She possesses a powerful secret-one that threatens her very life. When being held captive by Dorian proves to be the only way to keep Farah safe from those who would see her dead, Dorian makes Farah a scandalous proposition: marry him for protection in exchange for using her secret to help him exact revenge on his enemies. But what the Blackheart of Ben More never could have imagined is that Farah has terms of her own, igniting a tempestuous desire that consumes them both. Could it be that the woman he captured is the only one who can touch the black heart he’d long thought dead?

Lies, lies, lies…

The lies from Harvard Academy’s Elite had fallen upon deaf ears.
With the truth revealed, Sam was the only person I could turn to and trust.

But a girl once so broken, was only bent. As I returned, stronger than before.

The de Lacharriere’s could play their silly little games and spew their lies.
One thing remained true, I was getting free of my father’s clutches. Even if that meant having to side with the enemy.

The four guys who broke my heart with little white lies, would have to heal me with their ugly dark truths.

The line between love and hate has never been so explosive.

The first time I saw Alessandro, two things came to mind.
Sexy and naked.
You get the idea.
Thanks to him, my flight from hell became the best one I’d ever been on.
Turned out, the engaging, gorgeous passenger, was my new professor…and the ultimate jerk.
Rude, prick, cocksucker, were a few choice names I’d love to call him.
How was this offensive man the same human I’d met on the plane?
His soul must’ve been invaded by demons after leaving the airport.
To think I’d almost joined the mile high club with him. Almost.
Everywhere I went he was there raining more insults on me.
Until I saw him with his adorable mini look-alike.
That charming little boy melted my heart.
Before I knew it, I’d accepted his son’s invitation to play soccer.
What the hell was I thinking?
I hated that man.
But naked and sexy had gotten me into this mess.
And not even hate could get me out.

About Kerrigan

Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she’s finally able to have the career she’d decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to “grow up to be a romance novelist.” Whether she’s writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.

She lives in a little Victorian coast town on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State with her wonderful husband. When she’s not writing you can find her sailing, beach combing, kayaking, visiting wineries, breweries, and restaurants with friends, and hiking…okay…wandering aimlessly clenching bear spray in the mountains.

How It All Began For the Baron (Ways of Love Prequel)

All it takes is a little Christmas spirit for love to appear.

Lady Cassiopeia Ashcroft never really liked her brother’s friend from Eton, but when her grandmother told her that Lord Gregory was coming home with Rion for Christmas, she decided that she would make the best of it – as long as he stayed out of her way. But the moment he stepped out of the carriage, she knew that this time, things would be different. Not only had Gregory matured and become rather infuriatingly handsome since she’d last seen him, but he also made her feel things that she never thought possible. And that was dangerous.

Lord Gregory Dawson never really considered Cassie to be anything other than Rion’s annoying older sister, but time had changed the girl he knew into a rather enchanting woman – so long as she kept her razor-sharp tongue inside that lovely head. He could think of many other uses for it, but he knew she was firmly off limits. The trouble was that he couldn’t seem to keep his hands to himself.

Why the Earl is After the Girl (Ways of Love Book 1)

As a lively, Christmas house party begins to commence they finally start to succumb to the attraction between them. But when sudden tragedy breaks them apart, is their love strong enough to withstand the storm?

A missing heirloom. A stolen inheritance. Can love conquer mistrust?

Athena Hawthorne never imagined that she would lose everything she’d ever had. But after the death of her father, his prosperous jewelry store is sold off to pay his supposed debts. Athena, now destitute, embarks on a mission to discover the truth, but circumstances force her to accept an offer from a handsome stranger to work as a governess. She’s determined to clear her father’s name, but a certain earl is making matters far more difficult than necessary. And she can’t be in danger of losing her heart to a member of the aristocracy…

Orion Ashcroft, the Earl of Rockford, is convinced that Athena is a grasping thief who stole a priceless family heirloom, the rare sapphire known as the Couleur Magnifique. When he offers her the position of governess to his sister’s children, he only intends to catch her in some nefarious scheme and get back the sapphire—his grandmother’s dying wish. But he soon discovers that keeping his distance—and his sanity—around the beautiful Athena isn’t as easy as he’d planned. It certainly doesn’t help that his sister and his best friend plead her innocence at every frustrating turn. Soon he’s struggling between honoring his promise and his growing attraction to Athena.

But there’s danger closer than either expect. Even a masquerade can’t hide Athena from the curiosity of the ton forever…and there’s a threat hiding among the highest members of society…
