Woodrose Mountain
by RaeAnne Thayne

Published March 27, 2012 by HQN

Evie Blanchard was at the top of her field in the city of angels. But when an emotional year forces her to walk away from her job as a physical therapist, she moves from Los Angeles to Hope's Crossing seeking a quieter life. So the last thing she needs is to get involved with the handsome, arrogant Brodie Thorne and his injured daughter, Taryn.

A self-made man and single dad, Brodie will do anything to get Taryn the rehabilitation she needs…even if it means convincing Evie to move in with them. And despite her vow to keep an emotional distance, Evie can't help but be moved by Taryn's spirit, or Brodie's determination to win her help—and her heart. With laughter, courage and more than a little help from the kindhearted people of Hope's Crossing, Taryn may get the healing she deserves—and Evie and Brodie might just find a love they never knew could exist.

Juicy Joy: 7 Simple Steps to Your Glorious, Gutsy Self
by Lisa McCourt

Published March 27, 2012 by Hay House

We at When Pen Met Paper occasionally come across a book outside of the romance genre (in this case, a self development book) that so impresses us, we have to share.
This book is exactly that.

Are you living your richest, gutsiest, juiciest life? Do you feel all the exquisite bliss and sweetness you can imagine? If not—if you aren’t experiencing the abundance and personal freedom you crave; if you’re not vitally and deeply connected with your loved ones; if you’re unable to attract and maintain a soul-nurturing, awe-inspiring, passionate primary relationship—it can only mean one thing. You are not expressing the full truth of who you are.

Well, it’s time to change that! Juicy Joy is a streamlined path to radical authenticity and the ability to flat-out adore that precious, imperfectly perfect you. Living juicy-joyfully is not a matter of adding anything to yourself. It’s simply a matter of shedding the limitations that separate you from your true core being—the limitations that trap you in the numbness and detachment that have become distressingly “normal” in our culture. Wouldn’t it feel amazing to trust your instincts and fearlessly act on them? Isn’t it time to gain mastery over your experience of life, shed victim hood, and learn to honor the voice within you that always, unfailingly leads you to your greatest joy and highest truth? Juicy Joy is an invitation to a bigger life—a deeper, richer, more rewarding existence. And it will launch you into an enduring love affair with your glorious, genuine self!
