I've Got a Story to Tell

I've Got a Story to Tell  .... or Two
I love stories. They capture the imagination and transport the reader to different countries, times, and even worlds. You can learn, be encouraged, and strengthened in hard times. Walk in another's shoes and begin understand those from different times, circumstances, and cultures.


In short, you can see the world and beyond through stories.

Why do I write?  To make others happy.  After I'd finished my first book I gave it to my friend to read. We were both a little nervous, what if she didn't like it? But when she finished, she told me it made her happy.

That was all I needed. That was worth the Pulitzer Prize, Best Selling List of all.  It is my goal. 


This year I watched the movie ~ The Greatest Showman  ~ I loved it.  I realize they took liberties with P. T. Barnum's life, but I believe the man enjoyed making people happy.


In fact, one of the quotes attributed to him makes my heart sing ~
The noblest art is that of making others happy. --  P. T. Barnum

I've written 34 stories so far and have many more clamoring for their time in a book. 
What are some stories that have carried you through a hard time or made you happy?

Texas will Never be the Same!


Book 3 of the Mail Order Brides of Misfit Ranch  Bluebonnet Texas

Welcome back to Bluebonnet, Texas. 

Nettie has a queasy stomach and secrets. Yes, she's been at it again ~her letter writing campaign to match misfits with a suitable mate.


This time, it's Yancy. The poor man needs something or someone. He'd lost his spark for life and still limped on the leg he'd broken months ago. 

After she mailed the letter for a mail-order bride, doubts assault her. She'd not told Yancy or her husband about her plan.


Eugene Douglas was at the end of his solutions. Fancy had been at it again. His boss was furious. He had to do something. An ad in the paper looking for a mail order bride offered an answer. If he could get Fancy married, a good strong man might be able to control her. The letter from Texas sounded promising. Eugene sent an answer and readied to move. He'd tell Fancy his plans once he got her to Texas.

Surprises abound in this sweet, Christian book. 

As with all my books, Yancy's Bride is free on Kindle Unlimited

Lilly wasn't looking for love. Then Love found her.

Redeeming Lilly ~ Free(USA) on Amazon March 29-April 2, 2018

Lilly is not your typical romance. But it is a great story for your Easter enjoyment.

Lilly kept her eyes forward, her chin up, and her heart encased in stone as the 'good' sheriff led her to the train station. She'd been run out of more saloons and towns than she had fingers to count. Didn't matter. She'd find another town. Another saloon. Another chance. She glanced at the shining sun and hoped the next town would be different.
A Christian Novella

**Lilly wasn't looking for love. Then Love found her. See what happens when a saloon girl comes to Hickory Stick and finds redemption.

You're going to love Bridgette!


Book #4 in the Montana Brides of Solomon's Valley 

Ambition, secrets, and love combine in this sweet historical romance.

Bridgette Howard fancies herself Queen of Montana but is waiting for her king to arrive. She's smart and has plans to be involved in the business and government of Montana. How that is to come about is a problem, but one she is confident she will solve, somehow.

An outlaw, bounty, and the judge's offer to lend her law books open a door for her. Perhaps the duke's nephew is another.

Sterling Merritt cares little for his uncle the duke or his title. But loves the land of Montana. And then he meets Bridgette. He thought he wanted to be a gentleman rancher, but as he got to know the town of Shirleyville  and Bridgette, his plans changed. 

He still had to deal with his partner, Gregory Adler, and his uncle. But with Bridgette as the prize, how hard could it be?

A fun story of surprises. And the promise of more to come.
You can find Bridgette on Amazon Or read it for free on Kindle Unlimited.


Enjoy the story. 
Blessings,
Patricia PacJac Carroll
