Introducing Wanting Moore by Mary Vine

July is here and my new novella, WANTING MOORE, has just been released. Black Lyon Publishing did everything possible to get it out early and to put the novella in paperback as well as e-book formats, which is beyond my hopes and dreams for this historical. My stories take place in the mountains of Northeast Oregon, and the rush was to ensure the paperback edition would be available for the Baker City’s Miner’s Jubilee, held on July 15-17. They have made the date. Black Lyon also gave me input on the cover, and kept the title I chose, a luxury so many writers aren’t allowed. I couldn’t have had a better company to take these extra steps for me and WANTING MOORE. The story goes like this:

Independent beyond what’s good for her, Isabella Moore leaves her brothers and parents in Prairie City in search of her true calling. Traveling to Haines, Oregon, by way of the historic Bourne-Haines Stage Road, she runs across the type of people from whom she’d been sheltered, leading to an accident and a man she’d only dreamed about.

Blacksmith Gabriel Stone saw enough of death during the Civil War to last him a lifetime. To him, Isabella is a broken wildflower in need of his care-but caring for her may bring back unwanted memories of this former life as a doctor. And dare he entrust his heart to a woman filled with ideas of gold mining and adventure?

They were lost until love put them back on the right path.

As of today, it is on Amazon as a Kindle Edition, but will soon be listed as print.

Thanks for reading!

    Congratulations on the new release. This sounds like a fascinating novella. Of course, I am partial to American-set historicals. Good luck in Baker City. 🙂 Will you be signing at the Jubilee?
