Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Allegra Banks Howard has finally made a decision and no one will stop her! Not her mother-in-law. Not her cousin-in-law. And most definitely NOT her brother-in-law, Clay.

Clay gave up his rights to Allegra when he left to seek adventure. Allegra, always doing what was expected of her, married his brother Frank instead. Now a widow, Allegra refuses to be a pawn and even more, refuses to allow her daughter to continue to grow without happiness.

Clay only wants what’s best for Allegra and the niece he knew nothing about… but this isn’t the same Allegra he left.

Hott Review:

I just finished the newest release by one of my favorite authors, The Bride Ship by Regina Scott. I like Regina’s work more with each book she writes. In this book, Allegra is a very strong woman who has finally seen what society can do to a person and has decided to follow God’s will for her life. Little did she know that in escaping she bound herself to a new problem.

I can’t wait to read the next installment in this new series!

Author Bio:

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.

Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.

Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Joyce Fishman’s out-of-the-box thinking and artistic gifts have led to Collective Soles, a unique book reminding us that shoes are more than soulless objects of fashion, and that each shoe contains a soul within its sole. Delightfully illustrated, this lovely little book celebrates the essence of shoes and their owners. Some of the shoes you’ll meet include flip-flops, who are free spirits, and flat shoes-good, solid citizens. Cleated soles grip the earth, their spirit moving forward unencumbered. Orthopedic shoes help support sagging arches and lift the step with the wisdom of having lived well. Stilettos are high-spirited, tall and sleek, giving you a better vantage point from which to scan the room. Collective Soles will inspire you to think about your journey and what types of soles express your own soul!

Hott Review:

Collective Soles is my favorite in the Shoe Banter series! I still don’t love the watercolors, but they’re set off my dark pages and vibrant colors. I really just enjoyed looking at all of the different kinds of shoes. Plus the verses are cute.
