Discover the "Yellowstone Romance" series!

Looking for a new series to get lost in? Discover Peggy L. Henderson's popular Yellowstone Romance series!

Yellowstone Heart Song (Yellowstone Romance Series Book 1), by Peggy L Henderson

"If you have read the 1st book, you will not quit until you have read the whole series. Time travel was so interesting. You find out what it's like to travel back to the 1800's. But, I found it very interesting for the characters to travel to our time. It's a kicker. Hope everyone has a chance to read these. Well worth it!" -- Amazon reviewer

For Aimee Donovan, it started out as an unbelievable journey into the past. Little did she know that her time travel would shape the destiny of the place we know today as Yellowstone. The Yellowstone Romance Series is an enticing mixture of adventure, love, and danger through the generations as we meet the Osborne and Russell families.

From the dawn of the rugged and untamed wilderness of Yellowstone to the majestic national park we know today, we feel the passion, heartache, and excitement on every page.

Book 1 in the Yellowstone Romance Series
(2nd Edition)
"I am not good with words, but you make my heart sing, Aimee..."

Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era. The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she's from the future.

How did a white woman suddenly appear in the remote Rocky Mountain wilderness? Trapper Daniel Osborne's first instinct is to protect this mysterious and unconventional woman from the harsh realities of his mountains. While he fights his growing attraction to her, he is left frustrated by her lies and secrecy.

Daniel shows Aimee a side of Yellowstone she's never experienced. She is torn between her feelings for him, and exposing a secret that will destroy everything he holds as truth. As her three months come to an end, she is faced with a dilemma: return to her own time, or stay with the man who opened her eyes to a whole new world. When the decision is made for her, both their lives will be changed forever.

I never thought I'd be a writer, much less publish a book someday. I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I guess life just had other plans for me. When my husband and I decided to start a family, vet school pretty much went out the window. I used to work with a vet who had three children while going through vet school. To this day, she is my hero.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart, and together with our two sons, we make our home in Southern California. Our family also includes a Labrador Retriever, a welsh pony, a miniature horse, three cats, four bearded dragons, and a flock of laying hens. Almost every summer since my husband and I graduated from high school, we spend two weeks camping in Yellowstone National Park.

Four years ago, I began writing a story that, for whatever reason, was stuck in my head for almost a year. I have been an avid romance reader for a long time, and the idea took hold to - why not? - write my own!

It has been a long and difficult journey and learning experience from my first sentence to a completed, and hopefully polished, manuscript.

The story, titled Yellowstone Heart Song, is set in the Rocky Mountain region which today encompasses Yellowstone National Park. It takes place decades before the area was even known to white men, a time just after Lewis and Clark, before the mountain man era was in full swing.

The story has turned into the Yellowstone Romance Series, with five books and a novella published. My newest venture is a time travel romance series, which I am calling Second Chances. The first title, Come Home to Me, released on October 17, 2012. I am also working on a historical romance trilogy, called the Teton Romance Trilogy. Book 1, Teton Sunrise, was published in February, 2013.

I want to send a special thank you to all my readers. Thank you for taking the time to write reviews and to email me, leave messages on my blog, and find me on facebook. I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally. My email address can be found at the back of each of my books, and I will always make the time to respond. Thank you for making my journey as a writer such an awesome experience.

With the help of two teens who find him lost in the Arizona desert, the Colonel slowly begins to remember his past, then sets out to complete his last mission: stop a heart-eating, prehistoric shapeshifter.

Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: FlipPix Art - Simple Pleasures

Today's Free App of the Day is FlipPix Art - Simple Pleasures
Originally $1.99

This is one of those logic games also known as "nannograms" where you use logic to fill in squares on a grid to form a picture. It's got a good tutorial and help info. A little twist is that the items you uncover are added to a photo. You can play grids of 5x5, 10x10 and 15x15. Default is to have errors marked permanently with big red x's. Yikes! You can restart to eliminate the X's.  Thank goodness!

But you can also select "Ignore Errors" under Options before starting. You can adjust the sound in the Options, too. You can set it up for multiple players. Playable in airplane mode. Plays in landscape mode and will flip when turned 180 degrees.

No one-star reviews and one two-star review didn't like it and complained about data collection, though it only has one permission. Untimed.

139 of 145 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!

"POWER: How J.D. Power III Became the Auto Industry's Eyewitness to History," by Sarah Morgans and Bill Thorness

Something a little different for you today: this non-fiction book tells the story of J.D Power, and how he revolutionized the auto industry and its attention to customer service and satisfaction. Just released - and available for Kindle for $2.99.

POWER: How J.D. Power III Became the Auto Industry's Adviser, Confessor, and Eyewitness to History, by Sarah Morgans and Bill Thurness

No other individual has had as broad an impact on the auto industry during the past fifty years as Dave Power.

Dave’s persistence in getting auto executives to listen to customer concerns was key to the across-the-board rise in car quality, and the influence of his J.D. Power and Associates rankings has permanently raised the bar on customer satisfaction.

Enhanced with anecdotal quotes from Dave as well as dozens of industry insiders, POWER is a compelling study of an intelligent, polite, market-research wonk who unblinkingly spoke truth to power, and ended up making customer satisfaction a watchword not just in automotive but in all manufacturing and service industries.

Foreword by CNBC's Bill Griffeth.
