This week has been full of surprises in the mail! I received a bounty of books from Pocket. I'd like share my bounty with you by giving away Sara Luck's CLAIMING THE HEART:
As the Texas and Pacific Railroad expands across the wide open frontier, a spirited young woman finds a triumphant love amidst the tracks and tumult.
History in the making . . .
July 1876: Building a railroad that reaches Fort Worth city limits by a midnight deadline is an all-consuming obsession for track supervisor Gabriel Corrigan—while his socialite wife, Marthalee, daughter of a powerful Louisiana politician, heads home to arrange a marriage annulment. But when Gabe crosses paths with Josie Laclede, a vivacious businesswoman from St. Louis, he sees a sassy lady bold enough to stake her claim in the wild Texas plains—yet soft and sweet enough to win his heart.
Love for the keeping . . .
Though her past is a mystery—Josie was a foundling, raised by a kind widower who now runs a shop and hotel with her—Gabe dreams of a bright future with Josie by his side. Tantalized by his gentle kisses, and swept up in the thrilling track-laying race that has all of Fort Worth pitching in, Josie is tempted to fall hard for Gabe. But Marthalee returns, vying for the T&P fortune he stands to make. And when her father offers Gabe a senate seat and a chance to get back into his well connected family, a heartbroken Josie vanishes with the prairie breeze. Will their dream of a once-in-a-lifetime love go up in smoke?

To enter the giveaway,
1. Leave a comment about something unusual you have done in your life. The military has given me many opportunities to live overseas. My favorite opportunity was to deploy to Greece and drive up to the Albania border. I convinced the border guard to give me a stamp even though I only walked five feet into his recently opened country.
2. This giveaway is open to all readers.
3. Comments are open through Friday, June 22, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Saturday, June 23.
