What’s New in Nancy’s World

It’s Getting Warmer Out There

Ah … the temptation is real. Ditch the writing and go for a drive with the windows down and sunroof open. Instead, I’ve opted for opening the windows in my office, anchoring my butt to the chair, and working. However, there’s always time for a cup of coffee and a good book!

What I’m Reading This Week

Scotland or Bust
By Kira Archer
Entangled Publishing

After dumping her boyfriend, Nicole Franklin jumps on a plane and heads to Europe. Sure, money and a job would have been nice to line up first. Even a visa, for that matter. So now she has to play tour guide at an Outlander experience for the most obnoxious man on the planet. Until she stumbles into the wrong bed in the middle of the night and wakes up in Harrison’s arms. Now his family thinks they’re engaged, and the entire village is betting on how long before she’ll be running for the hills.

Harrison Troy has a reputation in the town for burning through assistants. And the bubbly new one he’s just hired is likely no different. But his family quickly has them “engaged.” He should be upset, but she’s the perfect buffer for his interfering family. She says she doesn’t need another man in her life–even if he comes with a castle–and that’s fine with him. So why can’t he stop thinking about the woman who is charming everyone in the town, and maybe even him?

oz-shoesWaking Up in Oz – Set in 1975. A vintage re-telling of The Wizard of Oz.

Following a devastating tornado, attorney Dorothy Gail Farmer finds herself stranded in Oswald, Kansas and surrounded by a town full of Wizard devotees. Can she muddle her way through business dealings with the wicked land baroness, Evelyn Witcher? Or, guard her heart from a sexy storm chaser nicknamed ‘The Wizard’?

Part of the new “Stranded” series from The Wild Rose Press’ historical line, Waking Up in Oz is a comical look at just how far some people can take an obsession.

Her Secret Santa Surprise – Set in 1965, this book is a sequel to last year’s Halloween-themed book, Bewitched.  A cross between a holiday story and my all-time favorite television rom-com, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, it’s about finding romance in the newsroom.

Scheduled for release in time for the 2018 holiday season. From The Wild Rose Press.
