Today we welcome Kimberly Rose Johnson to Home Thoughts. Kimberly has a new book out called:  A Kimberly bookMatch for Meghan. Here’s the blurb from the back cover: Meghan Black has finally met her match. The veterinary assistant never backs down from a dare…and what greater challenge than finding die-hard bachelor Ben Young his ideal mate? But what’s an incurable cupid to do when the handsome vet turns the tables and asks her out?

Ben is perfectly content with his single life. And he figures there’s only one way to get the petite dynamo to quit her matchmaking—date her himself! But his plan backfires when he realizes that Meghan could be The One. Can he convince a woman who believes in happy endings for everyone but herself that he’s her Mr. Right?

Happy Tuesday, readers. I do hope you’re keeping warm wherever you are. It’s all of 11 degrees here in Ohio, but at least it has stopped snowing.

The Last HeiressI’m thrilled to announce my new book is about to release, The Last Heiress, which I researched both in England and Wilmington, North Carolina. My 2008-05-22 07.41.18British pal, Carolyne Way, inspired my story during my last visit to the U.K. Carolyne told me about her great grandfather who owned a coal mine near Manchester. This mine supplied the lucrative garment industry along the western coastline. She also relayed the true story about a mine collapse which killed both miners and textile workers alike which figures into my story. My book is about twins who become estranged when one sister, Abigail, elopes with an Southern cotton broker from North Carolina. My heiress twin, Amanda, sets off for America to restore shipments to her textile mills curtailed by our Civil War.

When Amanda meets Nathaniel Cooper, a Wilmington shopkeeper, her desire to conduct business and return home changes. Amanda’s family deems the hardworking merchant harbor 2unsuitable for an accomplished heiress. And when Nate loyalties regarding the war begin to shift, Amanda has her own battle on her hands. As the Union noose around Southern ports tightens, Nate contemplates joining the Glorious Cause—not in support of slavery but to watch his brother’s back. Class distinctions, political loyalties, and family obligations guarantee a turbulent romance for Amanda and Nate.

The Last Heiress is available for pre-book from CBD and will ship the same day books arrive in their warehouse. It will be available in electronic formats on February 1st. Here’s the link for a hot-off-the-presses print copy at 25% off retail:
