Margaret Brownley's Dawn Comes Early

Thrills, mystery, suspense and romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this—except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction."

So that’s what Margaret did. She’s now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit The first book in her Brides of Last Chance Ranch series Dawn Comes Early will be published March 2012. The book will be followed by Waiting for Morning January 2013.

Margaret’s first non-fiction book Grieving God’s Way: the Path to Hope and Healing will be published in July by Thomas Nelson. She wrote this book following the loss of her son and it’s especially close to her heart.

You can find Margaret online at her website,

Dawn Comes Early

Heiress Wanted

Looking for hard-working, professional woman
of good character and pleasant disposition
willing to learn the ranching business in Arizona Territory.
Must be single and prepared to remain so now and forever more.

Her latest dime novel banned, twenty-nine-year old Kate Tenney answers an advertisement for heiress to an Arizona cattle ranch. It seems like the perfect solution for a disgraced novelist with no intention of getting married—ever.

Trouble begins the moment she steps foot in Arizona Territory. The west is nothing like she wrote about in her books. Not only does she have to deal with a hard-nosed ranch owner, and nefarious outlaw, but a traitorous heart. Kate does not trust men and has no intention of falling for Luke Adam’s charm. She’s determined to learn the ranching business and prove to the doubting ranch owner that she’s up to the task—if it kills her. If only she could stay away from a certain handsome blacksmith and his two matchmaking aunts.

You can purchase Dawn Comes Early from Amazon.

i had to chuckle at the heading of your post today. Not as bad as one i read the other day about (author's name) death in (place). But humorous. Loved that Margaret wrote her newsletter as fiction. How fun was that! Thanks for the post ( i don't like excerpts as they spoil the story for me) and the opportunity to win a great giveaway, Esther.
