New Release: The Cowboy’s Secret

New Release The Cowboy's Secret, Inspirational Romance, Jill Kemerer

Looking for a new release in inspirational romance? The second book in the Wyoming Sweethearts series, The Cowboy’s Secret, is in stores today! I had a blast writing this book. Here are some reasons you might want to pick it up (the price alone is worth it–$4.48 at Walmart and other superstores, and $5.99 at Barnes & Noble!).

The Cowboy’s Secret

  • A heroine who doesn’t like cowboys
  • A hero who’s pretending to be a cowboy
  • An adorable baby I could just smother with kisses
  • Plenty of friends from the first book in the series, Her Cowboy Till Christmas
  • Summer in Wyoming (I would take summer anywhere, at this point!)
  • No pandemics in this one–you can escape into a romance!
  • New release: Inspirational romance with Love Inspired
The Cowboy's Secret by Jill Kemerer April 2020

I’m also very excited that my book, Reunited with the Bull Rider, has been rereleased with Brenda Minton’s, The Rancher’s Secret Child, in a 2-in-1 Western collection. It’s in stores today, too, and you get both books for one low price!

With all the unsettling news, I pray you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe. Please remember to pray and to trust God’s plan. It isn’t always easy!

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Is the coronavirus news making you read more? Or less? (For me, more!)

My 10th Novel Released Today!

Her Cowboy Till Christmas (Wyoming Sweethearts Book 1)

It’s celebration time! My 10th Love Inspired novel, HER COWBOY TILL CHRISTMAS, released today! I’m super excited about this book. Let me tell you why.

  • It’s Book ONE in a new series! Wyoming Sweethearts follows four friends who are all reeling from tragedies. They’ve formed a support group in their hometown of Rendezvous, Wyoming. Each book shows one of them navigating the complicated road to love!
  • It’s a Christmas book! And you know I love Christmas.
  • Reunion romance–Brittany and Mason were best friends growing up. The summer after high school, they became more than friends, but Brittany broke Mason’s heart, and he’s never forgiven her.
  • There’s the sweetest little three-year-old boy–Mason’ son. His wife died six months after giving birth to Noah.
  • Did I mention this is an identical twins separated at birth story? Yes, it is. I won’t say another word!
Her Cowboy Till Christmas (Wyoming Sweethearts Book 1)

Can a Christmastime reunion become forever?

She’s only home for the holidays…Can he convince her to stay?

The last person rancher Mason Fanning ever expects to see again is the girl who once broke his heart.
