Book Blog Tour Stop - Big Sky Mountain by Linda Lael Miller - Excerpt, guest post from the author and a GIVEAWAY!

Today, I'm proud to be a stop on the Book Blog Tour for Linda Lael Miller's latest book, "Big Sky Mountain."

The “First Lady of the West,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller, brings you back to Parable, Montana-where love awaits in the second book of her new Big Sky Series!

With his rugged good looks, vast wealth and family name, hell-raiser Hutch Carmody is still the golden boy of Parable, Montana. But he’s done some growing up, making peace with his illegitimate half brother and inheriting half of Whisper Creek Ranch, which should have been all his. These days, Hutch knows there are some things money can’t buy: like the heart of loving, ladylike divorcé Kendra Shepherd.

Kendra’s quiet mansion reminds her of what she wants most – a devoted husband and the pitter-patter of little feet. She can’t get Hutch Carmody out of her mind. But a rough-and-tumble cowboy like Hutch, coming home for family dinner? Seems crazy! Then again, crazier dreams have become reality under the vast Montana sky.

Here's a teaser excerpt from the book: 

"A number of drastic scenarios flashed through her mind—a wedding guest toppling over from a heart attack, then a cattle truck crashing through a wall, followed by lightning boring its way right through the roof of the church and striking the bridegroom dead where he stood."

Linda was also gracious to answer a quick question about her writing style:

Would you ever revisit some of the other genres you have written (paranormal, thriller, contemporary, historical)?
Linda:  I would definitely revisit those other genres—on one condition. I would have to have a really, REALLY good idea. I still write historicals—my Christmas books, “A Lawman’s Christmas”, “A McKettrick Christmas”, etc., are always set in the late 19th or early 20th century. Time travel has always intrigued me, and I’m asked virtually every day when and if there will be a new Mojo book.

The answer: Yes. Eventually. I enjoy reading short stories and novellas by my favorite authors as ebooks, and I’m considering doing more vampire and Mojo stories in that format, though right now, I’m truthfully too busy with current projects. Also, it’s important to mention that I LOVE writing about sexy contemporary cowboys and their smart, spirited women.

About The Author:

Linda Lael Miller is a #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of more than one hundred historical and contemporary novels, most of which reflect her love of the West. Raised in Northport, Washington, the self-confessed barn goddess now lives in Spokane, Washington.
