Spotlight on Author Lizbeth Selvig by Lynn Lovegreen

I first met Lizbeth Selvig when I joined the Alaska chapter of the Romance Writers of America. She made me feel right at home there, and we grew to be great friends while I learned tons about writing from her. Now she’s gone back to her native Minnesota, and is a multi-published author. I love her heartwarming, funny, sexy-sweet romances, and I’m sure you will, too. Her latest book is Betting on Paradise, part of her “Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys” series:


The Good Girl wants to spread her wings …
From birth Grace Crockett has been part of an unbroken set: one-in a million identical triplets. Twenty-six years later, however, feeling unappreciated in her role as part owner of a successful Denver restaurant, Grace longs to break away and fulfill her own dreams. But to do so she must learn to trust in her own judgment.

The Gambler wants what’s owed to him …
Small-time poker player Ty Garraway is determined to break his family’s legacy of abuse and abandonment, and give his young daughter a hope for the future he’s never had. But that means taking on the Crocketts—one of the most powerful ranching families in Wyoming—and taking back a part of Paradise Ranch stolen from his family eighty years ago in a poker game he believes was rigged.

Can they bet it all … and defy the odds?

Grace’s relentless honesty and devotion to family—not to mention the way she turns him on—has Ty thinking too much with his heart. Ty’s passionate love for his daughter and his encouragement of Grace’s half-baked ideas—not to mention his knee-weakening kisses—has Grace wondering if she’s found her unlikely match in a rough-around-the-edges cowboy. But when Ty’s plans are exposed, can Grace forgive the liar who manipulated her and her family and forgive herself for being duped?

Love has raised the stakes, requiring Ty to bet everything he has to win Grace and his future, but will it be enough?

I love Ms. Selvig's title for her series: Seven brides for seven cowboys! Betting On Paradise has interesting characters and a fresh plotline (at least new-to-me!)I'm adding it to my Pinterest To-Be-Read Page.
