(Those Marshal Boys, #2)
by Loree Lough
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 385 pages (large print)
September 1st 2015 by Harlequin Heartwarming


Nate Marshall used to be a yes-man... until being so agreeable cost him dearly. But Eden Quinn has a way of getting him to reconsider his "just say no" policy. Which is how a bunch of troubled teens end up at his ranch for the weekend. Nate can't help but be attracted to the woman who keeps them in line.

This cowboy knows Eden's no damsel in distress, yet hers isn't a one-woman job. If she must do everything on her own, how can he help her... let alone get her to fall for him?

The First Book in the Series

Once a Marine

Yes, it's true: Once upon a time, best-selling author Loree Lough (literally) sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the U.S. Now and then, she blows the dust from her 6-string to croon a tune or two for the "grandorables," but mostly, she just writes. (And writes.) Over the years, her stories have earned nearly 100 industry and "Readers' Choice" awards, 7 movie options, and over 80 4- and 5-star reviews.

There are more than 5,000,000 (yes, that's FIVE MILLION) copies of Loree's books in circulation, and in September of 2015, she'll have 108 books (fiction and non-fiction for kids and adults) 72 short stories, 2,500+ articles in print. To date, she has received 50,000+ letters from fans (a carton of books goes to Meredith P. in Joliet, IL -- which she has elected to donate to her local library --for writing the 50,000th letter)!

Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers' organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, college and high school writing programs both here and abroad.

A writer who believes in "giving back," Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers' Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and other worthwhile organizations.

She splits her time between her home in the Baltimore suburbs and a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, and shares both with her real-life hero Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of lighthouses, wind chimes, and "wolf stuff."

Guest Post

Have you ever wondered how a book’s video trailer is created? Well, I can’t tell you about the dozens of hours that a designer puts in to come up with the final product, but I can share what I do to help make her job a little easier.
She needs the title, publisher, my name, photo and author bio. She also needs a brief overview of the storyline, and a few photographs (purchased from a reliable source) to help her tell the story in pictures.
Then she needs a few lines that she can use as captions for each frame of the video. Kind of like this:
Script for CURRENCY OF THE HEART (#1 in the Whitaker House “Secrets on Sterling Stree” historical series) by Loree Lough

Setting: Denver, Colorado and Remington Ranch, 10 miles outside the city.

Time period: 1882

Young widow Shaina Sterling hates living a lie.
Desperate to keep bill collectors from the door,
she secretly sells valuable possessions
piece by piece
and hopes Denver’s elite never discover
that his lavish lifestyle left her a near pauper. 

She’s unaware that as her husband lay dying,
successful rancher Sloan Remington made him a promise.
And Sloan guards her secrets
as carefully as he looks after her safety.

When fire devours Sterling Hall,
leaving her homeless and penniless,
he brings her to Remington Ranch
to manage his household.
His kindness makes Shaina beholden to him
…and threatens to expose the secret
that could destroy him.

Will trials and tragedies bring Sloan and Shaina together?
Or will secrets—and the cost of exposing them—
drive them apart forever?
