IT'S A BATTLE OF WILLS . . . AND LOVE IS ON THE LINE!
Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man's world . . . which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder.
Dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears though. He's a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stakeout puts Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.

Love on the Line was the first book I read by Deeanne Gist. I loved it so much, I've went back and read all of her previous novels and am very impatiently awaiting her next stories. Love on the Line has very real, unforgettable characters. Georgie is an independent spitfire who, against her better judgement, falls for Luke, a heart-throb undercover Texas Ranger who sees Georgie as an inconvenient pebble on his road to capturing the "bad guys." Their banter had me laughing out loud at times, and the non-stop action had me turning pages long into the night.
Tempest in the White City is an e-book prelude to Deeanne's newest novel It Happened at the Fair available April 30th. It features the first chapter of each novel, and is just enough to have you scrambling for more. The full version of Tempest in the White City will release in 2014. Don't miss Deeanne's other books: A Bride Most Begrudging, Courting Trouble, Deep in the Heart of Trouble, Beguiled, A Bride in the Bargain, The Measure of a Lady, and Maid to Match. As I mentioned above, I've read them all, and they're all excellent!
