Unwanted Proposal
J.N Johnson

Caleb Myers watched as his sister and brother-in-law, Joshua, drove away from Clearwater for a much needed vacation, leaving him to housesit, and take care of the family business.  The idea of a long weekend of peace and quiet at their country cabin turned out to be a short-lived dream when a phone call from his employee at Winter Lilly's Outfitters brings news of an unwanted visitor. 

Riley Campbell wants nothing more out of life than to impress the pig-headed bosses who like to use her as client eye candy at her Houston law firm, and put her career on the fast track to partner.  Nothing made her happier than legal battles and paper pushing, but when she is sent miles from her normal city life, and thrown into the country setting of Clearwater, Wyoming, she fears she may have met her match .  With an offer in hand to buy Winter Lilly's Outfitters, Riley tries to convince Caleb to take the deal, but is good ole boy ways, country charms, and fierce loyalty leaves her wanting more than just his name on the dotted line. 

Can two people from opposite worlds come together under such an Unwanted Proposal?


My review:

You know.....I seriously love Clearwater.  If I knew it would all be there when I got there, I'd have been in the car 10 minutes ago.  I just finished reading Unwanted Proposal and was blown away!  I LOVED IT!  Truly, I got to the epilogue and started giggling like a giddy school girl.  Ms. Johnson you rock!

I was extremely impressed with the way you so cleverly described everything.  I really felt like I was standing at the glass patio doors with Caleb after feeding the dog or lying in the back of his truck while he and Riley watched the stars.  And the love scene? Whoa!

And, I was pissed and hurt right along with him when he stood in the lobby of the Winterbloom B&B staring at his family.

Can't say I'm a fan of lawyers, having had used them in my own past but Riley stole my heart as well and what a decision for her to make.

Please tell me you have another book waiting in the wings because I seriously need more from you!  A seriously talented writer here people!

Readers, you won't regret visiting Clearwater, only the leaving.   CLEARWATER HAS A FANTASTIC FUTURE!

5 stars JN Johnson and bravo!


I've read several of the Clearwater series books and trust me, any one of them you read by JN Johnson or Marissa Dobson will get you hooked on this town !!!

  8. I'm not too fond of lawyers either, having worked for them as a legal secretary for over 30 years. I got to know them all too well. But such is our legal system...we need them. Grrrr. Anyhow, perhaps this story will have some redeeming features about lawyers!? :-) Thanks for the post, Krista.

  9. Forgot to tell you what I like about Fall. Cooler weather! I like to sleep with covers on top of me! My Yorkie likes to snuggle with hubby and I on the down comforter. I get to wear sweats around the house! Yea!

  10. I love everything about fall, especially getting to break out my sweaters and boots!

  11. Actually, fall is not my favorite season...mainly because Michigan was my homestate and there, a very short fall leads to very long (and cold) winter. I prefer spring and summer. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. Love the colors of Fall & my birthday :)
    Great page!

  13. Bonfires are my favorite thing about the arrival of fall.

Why Romance Novels Matter !!

  Brought to you by Adam & Eve What do you say when someone asks if you enjoy reading romance novels? Do you answer with a loud and proud “yes,” or do you hedge, saying you read them, but just for fun, as if being a serious enthusiast is akin to being a pervert? Do you, in other words, give in to the idea that there’s something shameful about loving a good romance story? You’re not alone. The truth is, society has stacked the deck against those of us who love romance novels. There are still major misconceptions surrounding the genre, namely that it is a frivolous pastime enjoyed only by bored housewives. No other type of literature has endured the same level of malignant criticism or unfair categorization. The term “Harlequin romance,” which refers to one of the largest and oldest distributors of romance novels, has become shorthand for “trash” and “smut.” And all this hatred exists even while romance novels continue to be one of the fastest-growing and top-selling gen

Alpha favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
