CLOAKED IN LOVE - Elaine Manders - 5 Free Books or Ebooks

Dear Readers, I'm featuring an author who is a member of ACFW. Because of her husband being in the hospital, I'm not sure if she will be able to come by and interact with those who leave comments. But I wanted to introduce you to her novella, which appears in a Stitches Through Time collection Threads of Love.

I know Elaine will come by and read the comments at some time, so please lift her husband up in prayer and share some of those prayers in your comments.

Elaine Manders writes wholesome, Christian romance and suspense about the bold, capable women of history and the strong, dependable men who love them. She prefers stories that twist and turn and surprise, told by characters who aren’t afraid to show their love for God and each other. She lives in Central Georgia with her husband and an energetic bichon-poodle mix.

















































"Her only hope to escape an outlaw gang alive is to marry one of them."

That phrase intrigues me. I'm sure it does you as well. I'm eager for my copy to arrive so I can dive right into the story.

Thank you, Elaine, for sharing this new book with us.

Hi Lena, thanks for posting about my latest release. Life is full of trials and joys. I'm at the hospital with my husband who's in critical condition, but writing is my mission and I'm pleased to see Cloaked in Love meet the world.

Elaine Manders said...

When I was going up, westerns were big on TV. One of the common themes was the woman in peril, with the cowboy hero rescuing her from the villians. That's what inspired Cloaked in Love. We're all in the struggle of good and evil and all hope for the HEA.

Sherida Stewart said...

Thank you for hosting Elaine Manders and featuring her newest book, Cloaked in Love. It sounds quite intriguing. I truly enjoyed Elaine's The Perfect Gift, a delightful Christmas story. I'd love to read this new story. Sherida (NM)

Prayers sent for Elaine and her husband as they face this health situation. Praying......

Elaine Manders said...

Hi Bakersdozen, thank you so much for your prayers. Today is the first time I've had the heart to use social media and the prayers I found at Lena's blog are so comforting.

Elaine Manders said...

Dear Lena and Friends

I am still in shock over my husband's passing. It was so sudden and everything was frozen, including my book's production. It's been so hard just to open this blog, but I needed to hear your kind words. Thank you all.

Cloaked in Love should be up in Amazon this week in eBook form. I still have to approve proofs of the paperback, but it will be available shortly afterward.

Since I didn't have time to get the pre-order out, I'll be sending out Amazon giftcards for five winners or ship the paperback copy, if preferred.

Elaine Manders said...

Hi Edward Arrington, Cloaked in Love is an old-fashioned western of the bang-bang, shoot em up but the hero must use his wits to save the heroine instead of his six-shooter.
