  Colorado, 1880    
Kicked out of England for offending the Royal Family, Britania Rule heads for Leadville, in the Colorado backcountry. Passing herself off as a highborn lady, she pursues her dream of opening a parlor of spiritual enlightenment.

 Cody James, her guide, thinks he must be half-
crazy to hire-out to a female. But his luck at the gaming tables has run dry, and she’s his meal-ticket out of town. Betrayed by the only woman he ever loved, and shot and left for dead by a man he once called friend, Cody declares himself a loner.
     Traveling side by side, they deny their desire for one another, but the Tarot cards say otherwise—and their hot night of passion confirms the prediction. Will love be waiting at the end of the trail? Or could Cody’s past destroy their future?

Patricia n, @ NetGalley said
   “A Cowboys Fate,” by Gini Rifkin is a fast-paced tale set in Colorado in the late 1880’s. Britania Rule had been deported from England after a misunderstanding of accusing the Queen’s nephew of being Jack the Ripper, and given the choices of her future destination, she accepts her fate and travels to Boston.  Britania has full faith in her abilities to read her cards and accept her fate, so when the cards tell her that her success lies in the town of Leadville, Colorado she seeks out an experienced guide to take her to her destination.  Cody James is a man who plays to win and due to circumstances in his past, he is a man on a mission to right the wrongs he experienced at the hands of his ex-partner.  Cody agrees to get Britania to Leadville, but he had no idea how much this trip would change his life.  Britania and Cody must fight for their burgeoning love affair against a force of evil that may be the death of them.  I was given this book to read by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Colorado Tartan Day, Celebrating Scottish Independence and the Declaration of Arbroath

 

From April 6th 2019: good memories and a bit of good history.
(don't miss the Medieval Covid masks)

     Shared a wonderful day with my sister at the Boulder County Fairgrounds during the Tartan Day festival. Here is the Colorado state tartan!
  There were several tents set up creating a Scottish
village offering sights and sounds begging us to explore and experience all things Scottish. 
  
We discovered armor, antique weaponry, demonstrations of spinning (this nice lady explained the drop-spindle which I have yet to master) beautiful
clothing, and books on clan history. And all the while we listened to amazing Highland Rock and Roll performed by the Angus Mohr group bought these two CD's         

Angus Mohr website
                                     
A wonderful display or armaments and armor. 

Clothes for the romantic at heart.

          There was a blacksmith demonstration, 

    A rare glimpse of a Faerie, as well as numerous Scottie dogs, some wearing kilts. 
For Steampunk lovers there was a leather helm fashioned after the headgear worn by physicians in the middle ages during the plague years.  Who knew by 2020 we'd all want one!

About Tartan Day 
Originating in Canada in the mid-1980's, Tartan Day is a North American Scottish heritage celebration of Scottish Independence. Held in the Spring, the gathering commemorates the April 6th, 1320 signing of the Declaration of Arbroath.
                
   Submitted on that date, in Latin, to Pope John XXII, the intention was to confirm Scotland's status as an independent, sovereign state, while defending Scotland's right to use military action when unjustly attacked.
     
    Believed to have been written in the Arbroath Abbey by Bernard of Kilwinning, Chancellor of Scotland and Abbot of Arbroath, the letter is the sole survivor of three created at the time. 
                            
                                            Arbroath Abbey
     The others were a letter from the King of Scots, Robert I, and a letter from four Scottish bishops which all presumably made similar points.                                               
 Steeped in turmoil and political intrigue the declaration was part of a broader campaign for independence from England's Norman kings and a plea to lift the excommunication of Robert The Bruce.
  
    Here are the most famous lines from the English language translation by Sir James Fergusson, Keeper of the Records of Scotland. 
  ...for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.
             
      Woot woot thanks for stopping by.

            BLISS: FAE WARRIORS BOOK 2 

 View prizes and enter here


Fae Warrior, Bliss Goodeve, fires up her empath skills to help Mother Nature battle the Reptiles invading Earth. But when it comes to her new human partner, Nathaniel Winston Calhoun, Bliss would rather make love than wage war. A man of mystery, he even makes horn-rimmed glasses and a white lab coat sexy. 

    Nate admits to being a brainiac, at least that’s the persona he shows the outside world. If his boss discovered his checkered past, life could get complicated. The bad boy in Nate wants Bliss in the worst way. The scientist in him calculates high odds of being left brokenhearted.    

   After one Reptile goes rogue, it’s up to Bliss, Nate, and an alien critter named Noodge to bring him down. But time is running out, and things are heating up—especially romantically. Bliss is all for living in the moment. But will that be enough for either one of them?

Undercover Outlaw finalist at Oklahoma Romance Writers Guild

 


 Will he cross the line to find his brother’s killer?
Will she help him at the risk of her own freedom?

Jesse is determined to track down the man who killed his brother in cold blood. Impersonating an outlaw, his quest for justice becomes a living, breathing, part of his soul.
 
Trinity is heading to Denver to escape her vicious guardians. When her stagecoach is robbed, Jesse kidnaps her, and all her well-laid plans collide with his, leaving them both in danger.
 
Trapped in Prairie Ridge by a flood, Jesse and Trinity's feelings soon run as high and wild as the river. When Jesse is accused of murder, Trinity stands by his side, and they take on the town's tyrannical leader. As the city cowers in fear, help comes from an unexpected source, but can it save Jesse from a hangman's noose?

Available here!  https://books2read.com/u/4NXBwY

 

Excerpt:

Jesse grasped one of her hands and kissed the palm. “Tell Sol what’s happened,” he ordered, “and do exactly as he says.” Then he let her hand slip from his,

and his expression hardened. “And don’t come back here.”

She knew his harsh words were his way of protecting her. But not seeing him or knowing he was all right would be a far worse fate than anything else

she could imagine.

Footsteps echoed at her back.

“Whoever heard of a female reporter anyway?” Jesse mocked loudly. “You women should stay at home where you belong and leave the running of the world to

us men.”

“Like you men are doing such a great job. Besides, you’re big news, cowboy. And we women have only begun to take our place in the thick of things. You

might as well get accustomed to having me around. ”Jesse balled his hands into fists, and he wore an expression of frustration—her message had gotten

through loud and clear. On impulse she mouthed the words, I love you.

“Sheriff, get this female out of here. And in the future, I demand you keep her away from me.” His voice was cold, but she hoped the fire in his eyes spoke of remembered passion, and not anger. Sheriff Langford grabbed her elbow and escorted her non-too-gently away from the cell.

                         winner of 
  Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewer's Choice Award  and N.N. Lights Best Paranormal Romance 
of the Year.


    

Solace Goodeve, one of Mother Nature’s favorite Fae Warriors, is assigned to Earth to help save the planet. Reptile invaders, disguising themselves as humans, are waging a takeover—and Mother is mad enough to eat asteroids. Solace is ready to prove herself as a warrior, but having a human for a partner is not in her battle plan, even if he is rugged, ripped, and ready for action..

   Army Ranger, Tanner Jackson, has seen his share of black op missions; the last one taking its toll on both body and soul. Tanner isn’t looking for love, but after six-foot-tall and drop dead gorgeous, Solace shows him a new meaning to working undercover, he may consider the possibility.

   When the Reps plan to sabotage NOAA, Tanner and Solace must learn to trust one another. But as they’re trying to save the world, Tanner and Solace might just lose their hearts—and that takes the most courage of all.
