New for April
Trusting Hearts
Samantha Hicks

Carrie-Ann Stedman, an advertising executive, who has excelled in the world she occupies, is told by her boss she is to train a new hire, a woman who Carrie has very bad feelings toward.

Holly Fletcher, the newbie, once stole a very important client away from Carrie, a fact that Carrie has never forgiven.

Thrown together to make a presentation and trade show the best the company have ever seen, they must overcome their own obstacles and resentments to work together and build a working relationship that will make the company succeed.

Add in a high mix of attraction and sexual chemistry, they struggle to fight the urges that push them together and the obstacles that pull them apart. Carrie’s mistrust of Holly’s motives and Holly’s guilt over the accident that landed her younger sister in a facility for brain damaged adults, may have just left the bridge of doubt too insurmountable to find the happiness they both crave.

The Settlement

Devastated when her lover dies from an error made during a simple operation, Cadin Michaels vows to make the guilty pay for their deadly error. She uses the settlement won to create a foundation in her lover’s name to help women and children. When that does nothing to ease her grief, she is encouraged to take a sabbatical, to try and find herself again.

Cadin mounts her motorcycle, and lets fate, and a dart, lead her on her journey. She encounters people on her adventures that rekindle her belief in kindness, and unconditional love. Realizing she too needs a fresh start, Cadin finds herself drawn to the chemistry she feels for Renee, a woman she encounters in Alabama. The outpouring of love and friendship helps her on her path to healing and learning to trust her heart to love once again. 

Join bestselling author Ali Spooner on this sensational journey that ends with a heartwarming romance.
Cowgirl Up
When the new ranch hand, Coal Bryan, arrives at the MC2, the last thing she’s looking for is love.
Her co-workers are surprised when Coal turns out to be female. Coal, used to the reaction, quickly earns the respect of the crew with her work ethic and skill with horses. Coal uses the strenuous work and friendship of the ranch hands to try and forget her broken past.

Melissa Conway, owner of MC2, offers Coal a place to live in her home. They both are shocked to find they are linked in a way neither of them imagined.

Mary Leah, Melissa’s sister, arrives at the ranch to recover from a recent tragedy. The attraction between Mary Leah and Coal is instant and mutual.

Can the three women survive their personal dilemmas? The love and friendship they develop certainly helps but will it be enough to bring them together. Ride along with the MC2, for boot scootin’, butt kickin’, dirt eatin’, rodeo adventures, with a love story thrown into the mix.

  Author Exposure 

Debut Author Samantha Hicks.

Coming from my small countryside village in England, the release of this book is my biggest achievement to date. I wrote my first draft over five years ago, never thinking it would go any further than my laptop. It was a dream come true when Affinity Rainbow Publications agreed to take the story to the next level.
Reading has always been one of my biggest passions and the inspiration for me to write my own story.  Aside from, this I am an avid artist doing portrait, wildlife, and animal drawings (my extended families various homes are filled with them)!
The one and only man for me is my one year old Springer Spaniel, Finn. He is constantly by my side, bringing me his toys while I am writing and reminds me to get out in the fresh air a couple of times a day.
My future plans include continuing to write and draw and one day hope to be doing these living by the beach.
