#SweetRomance #FridayReads Guest: Shanna Hatfield

On Fridays I introduce you to friends of mine, and their sweet romance books. Some of the authors may write all sweet, others may write hotter stuff. But for the purposes of this blog we'll just be learning about their sweet (G/PG rated) tales. 

Please welcome today's guest, my friend Shanna Hatfield. I met Shanna through Sweet Romance Reads, and she's visited here before. She has three new stories to share with you. I'm not sure how she gets so much writing done, because it seems she's always ready to help out if someone needs assistance. When you read her blog below, you'll understand how that all comes together.


Are you full of turkey and pumpkin pie today? Maybe you’ve already made the rounds catching Black Friday sales or perhaps you’re taking a leisurely day at home to curl up by a cozy fire and read.
Whatever your plans, I hope this day finds you with a heart full of gratitude.

Mine is overflowing with all the wonderful blessings in my life — my health, my home, an ample supply of chocolate, the ability to do something I love so much every day, and my awesome hubby (Captain Cavedweller).

One thing I’m particularly grateful for is to opportunity to host the second annual Cowboys and Christmas campaign to raise funds and awareness for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund.  
JCCF is a non-profit organization that steps in and provides assistance when professional rodeo athletes sustain catastrophic injuries.

Ask any rodeo cowboy and they’ll tell you it’s a matter of when they get hurt, not if.

Originally, I got involved with the JCCF when I reached out to the Justin Sportsmedicine Team® with research questions for the first book in my Rodeo Romance series.

Since my first encounter with the folks there and at JCCF, I’ve been impressed by all they do and how much they care about others. Although I don’t have any family competing in the rodeo, I do have friends and am so grateful for the existence of JCCF and the Justin Sportsmedicine Team®. I’ve been so blessed by the people I’ve encountered through JCCF and decided to give something back to them.  

November 1 through December 24, ten percent of the net proceeds from all my book sales are donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. To help generate more funds and awareness, I have three new releases this month.

Capturing Christmas is the third installment in the sweet holiday western Rodeo Romance series. 
 Life is hectic on a good day for rodeo stock contractor Kash Kressley. Between dodging flying hooves and babying cranky bulls, he barely has time to sleep. The last thing Kash needs is the entanglement of a sweet romance, especially with a woman as full of fire and sass as the redheaded photographer he rescues at a rodeo. Determined to capture the best images possible, rodeo photographer Celia McGraw is fearless and feisty. Not one to back down from a challenge, her biggest risk isn’t in her work. Danger lurks in the way her heart responds to one incredibly handsome stock contractor. Will Kash and Celia capture the spirit of the season?

The Christmas Vow is the fourth book in the Hardman Holidays sweet Victorian romance series. 
 Columbia River Pilot Adam Guthry returns to his hometown of Hardman, Oregon, after the sudden death of his best friend. Emotions he can’t contain bubble to the surface the moment he sees the girl who shattered his heart eleven years ago. Widow Tia Devereux escapes her restrictive life in Portland, returning to the home she knew and adored as a girl in Hardman. She and her four-year-old son, Toby, settle into the small Eastern Oregon community, eager for the holiday season. 
Unfortunately, the only man she’s ever loved shows up, stirring the embers of a long-dead romance into a blazing flame. When her former father-in-law, a corrupt judge, decides he wants to raise Toby, Adam may be the only hope she has of keeping her son.

Dacey: Bride of North Carolina is  book #12 in the a brand-new 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series of novellas.

A conniving mother, a reluctant groom and a desperate bride make for a lively adventure full of sweet romance.
Braxton Douglas spends his days managing the family’s plantation and blissfully avoiding the state of matrimony. Unbeknownst to him, his mother tires of waiting for him to choose a wife and sends for a mail-order bride. When the woman arrives, ready to wed, Braxton has his work cut out for him if he plans to remain unaffected by the lively, lovely Dacey Butler.
Dacey releases on Monday, but you can pre-order copies today on Amazon.

Many, many thanks, Magdalena, for hosting me today. It’s such a treat to be here with you and your readers. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a happy holiday season!
