Redstone's Valley by Ann Levingston Joiner


Read on: Kindle, PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet, Smartphone
Genre: Western, Fantasy
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

In the heart of the Texas Hill Country lies a gigantic pink granite hill, stretching above the land, visible for miles: the legendary Enchanted Rock. To the Comanche, it was their sacred Singing Rock. To the Spanish Conquistadores, it was La Roca Encantada. Today it is believed to be one of Earth’s power points – an energy vortex that many believe may contain portals leading into other worlds and times...
In 1852, a feisty young Spanish woman named Maria Isabela Antonia de Pineda y Soldana rode onto the land owned by Daniel He-Who-Rides-Two-Horses Thorne-Redstone and into his herd of wild mustangs. Neither of their lives would ever be quite the same afterwards.
The Comanche had taught Daniel how to gentle a wild horse. Would those lessons carry over into gentling a spirited, independent, and intelligent young woman?
Redstone’s Valley, the first in a trilogy of novels set in the Texas Hill Country, and revolving around its legendary Enchanted Rock, tells the stories of Daniel and Maria as well as those of Daniel’s close friend and business partner, Jake Holder, as Texans supporting the Union cause, from the 1850’s through the Civil War – and beyond.

Fun & Random Facts About Tiffany Evans
  1. When I was growing up ...  I lived in a big house with a creepy basement. I was adamant that whatever lurked down there was responsible for my missing stuffed animals. (ET was the prime suspect, although, it's never been proven) I had a very active imagination, and spent a lot of time plotting mysteries for my Barbies. Apparently, they needed a bit of drama in their life.
  2. I once ... thought I wanted to be a veterinarian... until I realized I couldn't save every animal. And worse... I'd have to "put some down". *shudder*
  3. Readers would be surprised to know I ...  that I am not a romance buff. Don't get me wrong, I like a good love story, but I prefer it as a subplot. And it has to be gradual, unpredictable and realistic. Not the mushy, gooshy, love at first sight crap.
  4. The most important thing I learned ...was to get a couple critique partners. Find people you don't know- people who aren't afraid to hurt your feelings. They give the best feedback. That was the best thing I ever did. And even better, those once "strangers" turned out to be my best friends! Love them!
  5. Everyday I ... get my kids to school, workout... and play Call of Duty with my husband. Yeah, we're kind of video game junkies.
  6. I have always wanted to ... go to Egypt and ride a camel! Don't ask me why. They look terribly uncomfortable; and I know they spit. They probably even smell. Apparently, I don't care!
  7. I will never forget ...the first time a fan told me KEEPER was the best book they'd ever read. Nothing motivates you and keeps your writing like those awesome compliments. It's the best feeling ever!
  8. The best thing about writing is ... you get to make all the rules! Well, with some exceptions. I love trying to come up with unique characters. And I love how as you write, they become a part of you.
  9. When I am not writing, I like to ... play with my kiddos. Between the 3 of them, there is never a dull moment! My favorite past time, however, is hanging out with my husband. Whether we go shooting, play video games or have fake arguments in the grocery store, we always find ways to make everything fun.
  10. I am working on ... the sequel to KEEPER. it's called UPRISING. It's going to be epic. I'm also working on a new novel. It's a young adult paranormal called, TURBULENCE. The plot is so fun and unique. I'm excited to see how readers respond to it.

During a heated battle with a rogue Kember, Taylee’s forced to run and let her own Kember—the man who raised her—face him alone.

What happens when strong-willed women get tired of one person running everything?
A sparkling, comic disregard for change.
If you're looking for a sweet book about dealing with change--this isn't it. But you will laugh as a cast of lively characters push through conflicted times.

The Lutheran Ladies are sassy, have "strong-spine" opinions, and have stepped out of your office, your kid's soccer club, or your church to live on these pages. They deal with change--sometimes poorly--but with humor and heartache; they're on life's journey.

In Book One: Vera Henley has pulled the strings of the Lutheran Ladies Circle for years; now everything is unraveling. Traditions are changing. Even the annual rummage sale can't escape modernization. And the independent Circle women are cheering the changes--all except for Vera. Her humorous efforts to stop time time are often heart-breaking. And when her high-maintenance, crazy aunt introduces even more rebellion and upheaval, Vera is forced to pick through the chaos and choose: Which threads of change should she pluck--or can she bend others to do it her way

Jude and Adele have been best friends for their entire childhood. Starting college, though, new emotions begin to blossom.

Jude's parents left her the house she grew up in when they decided to retire and move. Living in a growing college town, Jude's closest friends move in with her, and the relationships they'd always had shift dramatically. Everyone is pairing up, and Jude is left to wonder if Adele has the potential to be more than the little boy she grew up with.

Adele feels the romantic tension with his best friend for the first time ever, and it scares him into keeping it to himself. But Jude knows everything about him, from the ugly scar he bears from a childhood accident, to the desire he has to play major league ball. Is it really worth taking the risk that they could lose each other?

Despite the fears that they both have, what neither of them know, is that someone's life might be on the line before their friendship.

2 CUT BALLS

That's how much I paid to become, one day, a famous music star. I'm Leonardo Ponti, I study and live in a conservatory in Italy, and I'm a castrated teen.
In two years I will finish school, but who knows if I will really sing in a majestic opera house, or prostitute in the dirty streets of the harbor?

1 BEST FRIEND

Gianni and I spent most of the time together, sing difficult songs, and fight back bullies like Cesare who thinks that "the not wholes"—castrated students—are just trash.
Then why my friend stops to talk with me?

0 GIRLFRIENDS

Women don't like castrated men, they can't get married, don't have sex, their body is too weak, and so on, but Martina, a gorgeous actress, is happy with me.
The rector of the school, not so much. He forbids me to see her.

INFINITE FANS

If the king picks me for his new opera, everybody will know my name.
But my voice … What's happening to my acute voice?
