Just Jane (Ladies of History Series #2)
Just Jane
1810s – England

Unable to find her own Mr. Darcy, she created him. Jane Austen lives simply in the English countryside with her beloved family, entertaining them with her stories and seeking romance.

Vivid and delightful characters pour from her pen–Elizabeth Bennet, Fitzwilliam Darcy, Emma Woodhouse, Fanny Price, John Willoughby . . . Jane dreams of publishing her stories and sharing them with the world, but she’s just Jane from Steventon, isn’t she? Will anyone ever read her novels? In this moving and authentic portrayal, Christy Award-winning author Nancy Moser transports readers back to the life and times of the literary world’s possibly most beloved heroines.

Remembered (Fountain Creek Chronicles, Book 3)
1870s – Colorado

Though loss is often marked in a single moment, letting go of someone you love can take a lifetime…

The threat of war—and a final request—send Veronique Girard from France to a distant and uninviting country.

His grief finally healed, Jack Brennan is moving on with life. After years of guiding families west, he is now working as a freighter to the mining towns surrounding Willow Springs. What he doesn’t count on is an unexpected traveling companion on his trips up into the mountains, and how one woman’s search will cause havoc with his plans… and his life.

Courting Trouble
1894 – Texas

Whether it’s riding bikes, catching snakes, or sliding down banisters, Essie Spreckelmeyer just can’t quite make herself into the ideal woman her hometown — and her mother — expect her to be.  It’s going to take an extraordinary man to appreciate her joy and spontaneity — or so says her doting oilman father.

Sadly such a man doesn’t appear to reside in Corsicana, Texas.

It’s 1894, the year of Essie’s thirtieth birthday, and she decides the Lord has more important things to do than provide her a husband.  If she wants one, she needs to catch him herself.  So she writes down the names of all the eligible bachelors in her small Texas town, makes a list of their attributes and drawbacks, closes her eyes, twirls her finger, and…picks one.

But convincing the lucky “husband-to-be” will be a bit more of a problem.
