Book Spotlight: The Runaway Bride by Noelle Marchand

Hi Everyone,

Today I wanted to introduce you to a new book by one of my special writer friends, Noelle Marchand. Noelle will be doing an interview and giveaway on Making Home Work at the end of the month, but I thought you all should get a heads up about her book . . . you know, before it's sold out of all your local stores and you can't find a copy anywhere.

Her novel is called The Runaway Bride, and it's a delightful story set in Texas about a spunky heroine named Lorelei. (Isn't that the most beautiful name?) And of course the story also features a rough-and-tumble sheriff named Sean. This is Noelle's second novel, and it dovetails perfectly with her first novel, Unlawfully Wedded Bride, telling the story of another member of the O'Brien family. Here's a little more about the book:

The only husband Lorelei Wilkins ever wanted was Sean O'Brien, but she's wasted too much time waiting for him to love her back. When another man proposes, she accepts—until she stands at the altar…and realizes she can't marry without love. Bolting out of town toward a fresh start, she never suspected her parents would send Sheriff O'Brien to bring her home!

After an innocent mistake leaves Lorelei and her reluctant rescuer with compromised reputations, marriage is their only option. But first they must triumph over suspicious locals, shady characters, an inconvenient groom and the bride's own stubborn heart. Will it take putting their lives on the line for Sean and Lorelei to realize that only love can conquer all?

I've read this story, of course, and posted a review on Amazon, if you're interested in seeing my thoughts.

So now I'm curious about the rest of you. Have you read any good books lately that you can't resist telling people about? Share them in the comments below. I always love to see what others are reading!


  1. I enjoyed Noelle's debut book and am looking forward to reading The Runaway Bride.

    I just finished reading, Veil of Pearls by MaryLu Tyndall. Another well written book by her.

    As far as the LIH books, last week I finished reading The Captain's Courtship by Regina Scott and Louise M. Gouge's A Proper Companion.
    I am eager to read the rest of the series as I enjoyed both these books.

    1. Oh, Veil of Pearls sounds so good. I'm anxious to get my hands on a copy. Good choice, J.Grace!
