HAPPY BIRTHDAY THE WILD ROSE PRESS! TWRP was my first home as an author, publishing my first novel, a vampire romance called FOREVER FREED, and my first novella, a contemporary romance called HEARTS IN DARKNESS.

Both books have gone on to hit Amazon bestseller lists--today, Forever Freed is #68 bestselling Gothic Romance and Hearts in Darkness is #2 Romance Anthology, #24 Kindle Contemporary Romance, #30 overall Contemporary Romance, and #49 4-for-3 contemporary romance print books!

Both have also won awards--Forever Freed won the NJRW Golden Leaf Award for Best Paranormal of 2011 and Hearts in Darkness the EPIC eBook Award for Best Novella of 2012! So great things can and do happen in the garden, which is a testament to TWRP and means great books for readers! Woot!

Happy reading!
:) Laura Kaye

The Wild Rose Press saw potential in my novels that agents and other publishers rejected. Those same novels e.g. Bannon's Brides, Forbidden Son,have received glowing reviews and won several awards. Thank you TWRP. Happy Birthday. www.lorettacrogersbooks.com

Happy Birthday to The Wild Rose Press!

Something To Talk About, my sexy, sassy contemporary romance was released just a few weeks ago

In Something To Talk About a smokin' hot bad boy cowboy is recruited by the small town's good girl to teach her about the art of being bad.

Secret crushes, a wish list, some behind the scenes meddling and a whoooooole lot of gossip and nosey townsfolk definitely complicate the mix.

The book was a finalist in the Romance Writers of American's Golden Heart contest in the short contemporary romance as well.

I hope readers enjoy it, and I'm thrilled to be part of the Wild Rose Press Family!

THE PRICELESS GIFT
By Anna Kathryn Lanier

Blurb:

The last thing Christina Scott expects Santa to bring her is a sexy—and very familiar—cowboy. Gavin Holloway’s just as shocked to discover she’s the woman he’s sent to pick up from the airport for a Christmas visit with her brother. They'd spent one hot week together months ago—a week where they both left their identities and individual problems behind. Neither ever expected a reunion.

Little do they know, Santa's elf has more than coal up his sleeve. Ho ho ho and a badgering we'll go before reindeer two-step on their rooftop and deliver THE PRICELESS GIFT that will leave their snowy days sizzling.

SALVATION BRIDE
by Anna Kathryn Lanier


Blurb:

The hot dusty town of Salvation, Texas has more than its share of secrets in 1873 when Laura Ashton's stage rolls into town. Sheriff David Slade has no idea what baggage his mail-order bride is bringing into his life. Throw in the nightmares from his Civil War days and he's got more than courting to contend with. Laura's a woman ahead of her time, a woman trained in medicine. And she's got a will that could move mountains. Unfortunately, the only mountains in Salvation are in Sheriff Slade's memory. Can the determined doctor heal his pain, or will the dark secret in her past turn up to steal his Salvation Bride?

Wishing you another successful six years.

PRINCE DAVAR is about to discover that a woman of the West is more easily married than controlled. Victoria may be his wife, but it will take a kidnapping, a battle of wills, and some desert heat of his own before he can claim her love. THE OCEAN BETWEEN by Lynda Coker http://www.thewildrosepress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_120&products_id=3616

VICTORIA BALLARD is a New York financial executive who considers men to be an unnecessary annoyance. With her career on track, she focuses on the adoption of four beautiful orphans, a crowning completion to her well-designed life-plan. However, life is a nasty trickster, and it’s about to spring one on her in the person of PRINCE RASHID DAVAR.

Happy Birthday to The Wild Rose Press. Still an adolescent 6-year-old (LOL), but already a giant voice in publishing. Congratulations!

My latest book with TWRP...
1898: Neely O'Conner is desperate for a job. Garrett Montez rejects her the minute he lays eyes on her. Neither his ranch nor his heart need the trouble she can cause. Does a mysterious woman hold the key to Garrett's love? Or can Neely crack through the handsome, rugged rancher's iron-encased heart and... PROMISE THE MOON?

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy birthday. My two books with TWRP, Wedgie Tales and Panty Lines as well as Demons and Stilettos are a Girl's Best Friend are full of snark, sass and humor. :-)

Vonnie Davis said...

I'm one of the few agented authors with The Wild Rose Press. When my agent called to tell me I had a contract offer on my debut novel, STORM'S INTERLUDE, I told her to wait and see if my dream publisher offered. A week later, the call came from The Wild Rose Press, and I was in heaven.

A year and a half later, I'm still thrilled. How nice to be treated with respect by your publisher. To be known by name and not by a number. To be included within a passionate group of staff, editors and graphic artists who encourage you to keep reaching for the stars has been the best growing experience for this author-wannabe.

Happy Birthday! You've come a long way Rhonda and RJ.

Missy Roth said...

Happy happy birthday!!! I have enjoyed being a prelim reader for you. I get to experience books and help someone in their career...a very humbling opportunity.

Celia Yeary said...

Happy Birthday! You're not the new kid on the block anymore, but one of the leaders and the best.
I have two Western Historical romances, All My Hopes and Dreams
(2008) and Texas Blue (2009). These books are still selling and I have never missed getting a check from lack of sales. Keep up the good work--
TWRP was my first publisher and I remember I cried when I got that first contract. Thanks so much.

Kellie Kamryn said...

My book with TWRP is PLEASURE ISLAND. Thanks so much to Cindy Davis my editor and TWRP for making the book all it could be! Happy Birthday!

Debbie Peterson said...

Happy, Happy Birthday Wild Rose Press, with many more to follow!

I find it such an honor to be counted as one of the faery roses, with my paranormal romance, "Spirit of the Rebellion," released in March.

The blurb?

Souls touch and emotions flare when a historian and an embittered spirit form an unlikely alliance to investigate the centuries-old riddle surrounding his death…
Ready for a fresh chapter in her life, Shae Lynn Montgomery accepts a job translating a cache of Civil War documents from Wisconsin’s famous Norwegian regiment. The assignment takes her to Chickamauga’s haunted Starling Plantation and face-to-face with a handsome captain—its angry ghost in residence.

Tristan Jordahl, falsely accused of treason, has no use for the living—not even the lovely translator invading his home. Despite Tristan’s best efforts to frighten her, Shae Lynn refuses to leave, and reluctantly, Tristan enlists her help to clear his name. But as they grow closer to the truth—and to each other—an evil spirit makes it clear he will do anything to stop them.

Can a love that transcends time overcome all obstacles?

Enjoy your day and know that we all celebrate with you!

Kathryn Knight - Silver Lake available 9/14/2012 said...

Happy birthday TWRP! Silver Lake, a haunted love story, releases in Sept. Here's the blurb, and please do stop by my FB author page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kathryn-Knight-books/305788679454063?ref=tn_tnmn
and "Like" and leave a comment to win a free ecopy in Sept.!

Rain Anderson can't decide which is more unsettling—encountering the ghost of her missing friend, or reuniting with the man whose love she foolishly rejected. But one thing is certain: the past has come back to haunt her, quite literally.

Five years ago, Rain's tight-knit group of high school friends unraveled when one vanished during their senior year. Now, a parent's deathbed request has reunited the friends at Silver Lake, including Jason Lansing, the man Rain discarded. Rain and Jason discover the powerful attraction between them has survived, but though Jason is willing to forgive, he can't let himself forget. The possibility of falling for Rain again is too risky.

Slamming doors, crashing objects, flaring fires—clearly the ghost has a message to share. As Rain and Jason struggle to unravel the truth, they must face a desperate spirit in need of help…and a burning passion that refuses to die.

Barbara Mountjoy said...

I'm coming late to the party, but I've got my best hat on!
I'm proud to be one of the Roses--my ebook SECRETS IN THE SAND came out last year, and this year will see CONVICTION OF THE HEART and THAT GIRL'S THE ONE I LOVE-- beautiful covers, wonderful, helpful editors to work with. I couldn't ask for a better experience or better readers. THanks and HB to the Wild Rose Press!

Babette James said...

Happy Birthday to The Wild Rose Press! I'm so very happy to be part of the garden. Thank you so much for publishing my debut, Clear As Day, which has received 4 1/2 Stars from Romantic Times Book Reviews.

What's a girl to do when her summer lover wants forever?

Haunted by dark memories of her parents' volatile marriage, artist Kay Browning keeps her heart locked behind a free-spirit facade and contents herself with the comfortable affair she has every summer with easygoing photographer Nate Quinn.

The only trouble with her plan? This summer Nate’s come to Lake Mohave to claim the lover he can't let go. He’s done with the endless traveling and settling for temporary homes and temporary loves. Kay's always been more than just a vacation fling, and now he must convince this woman, who sees love as a course to certain heartbreak, to take that leap of faith and learn how safe love with the right man can be.

Six years! The view must be nice. Well, as one of the longest established epubs out there, the view must be kind of corpsey too--what with the field of failed imitators who sprang up in your wake. :D

Mega-Congrats!
