Win a $40 Amazon gift card with romance author Misty M. Beller

Recognize the name of this author? I featured her back in April!

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love. She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep.

God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family, both immediate and extended, is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

She has just released the second book in the bestselling Heart of the Mountains series, called This Freedom Journey.

Adrien Lockman is through with the political unrest and bloodshed in his home country of France, so he sets off to the Canadian territory’s mountain frontier, in search of a place where a man can live his own life in peace. The last thing he expects to find is a woman, half-starved and half-frozen in a shack nestled among the towering peaks of the great Rocky Mountains.

Mary Standish thought she’d finally found a place where she was accepted, trapping with her husband for the Hudson Bay Company. But when he dies after a gruesome grizzly fight, she determines to carry on their work. After all, life in these remote mountains is better than enduring the scorn and snubs of “civilized” folk. When she’s forced to face a winter harder than any she’s endured yet, her stubbornness may just be the death of her. Until a stranger appears at her ramshackle door.

Adrien had planned to explore the mountain country all winter before he settles down to build a farm in the spring, but he can’t leave this woman to die in the elements. Even though she seems desperate for him to go. As Mary regains strength, she’s torn between wanting to save her dignity, and craving the respect of this man who’s slipped past her defenses. As the winter worsens, the truth becomes all too real—the only way they’ll survive is together.

Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions about books from a previous feature with Misty...

What inspires you to write?
Ooh, that’s a great question! I’d have to say a good story inspires me. Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the 1800s, and I love those remote frontier settings. A great story in that setting inspires me!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Get connected in a good national writing group. I’m part of American Christian Fiction Writers, and there are lots of groups out there for almost any genre. These groups provide excellent opportunities to learn the craft of writing, marketing, and networking. I wouldn’t have lasted long as a writer without ACFW!

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Hmm…That’s a tough one! Fiction can be so subjective, depending on a person’s tastes. There are some great non-fiction books, too! If I had to pick just one, I’d say the Bible.
