Well, I’m an author from Sydney, Australia. I’ve been writing since I was in my early teens.

Amanda’s Thoughts on One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey

Amanda’s Thoughts on One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey

October 17, 2014 Book Reviews 3 ★★★½

As you know, I am a Johanna Lindsey fan. I own every book. I lean towards her medieval and Viking era novels, but her cowboy books are awesome too. One Heart to Win in her 50th romance novel! Though this book wasn’t as strong as some of her previous work and was a bit of a historical romance cliché, it was still a lovely read. The Warrens and Callahans have been locked in a land/water feud for three generations. As… Read more »

She ends up at the Silver Creek Ranch (sort of an eeny-meeny-miney-mo action with a map). Ward Knowles, the oldest son of the family owning the guest ranch, is the first person she meets and it definitely wasn’t insta-love.   The heart of the… Read more »
