Blog Tour: Love at Any Cost By Julie Lessman

The Gilded Age is brought to life in the new Heart of San Francisco Series.  Fans of bestselling author, Julie Lessman, will join her on a journey to the West Coast for romance, passion, and surprising revelations found in Love at Any Cost.

Jilted by a fortune hunter, cowgirl Cassidy McClare is a spunky Texas oil heiress without a fortune who would just as soon hogtie a man as look at him. Hoping a summer visit with her wealthy cousins in San Francisco will help her forget her heartache, Cassidy travels west. But no sooner is she settled in beautiful California than Jamie McKenna, a handsome pauper looking to marry well, captures her heart. When Jamie discovers the woman he loves is poorer than he is, Cassidy finds herself cheated by love a second time. Will Jamie discover that money can't buy love after all? And can Cassidy ever learn to fully trust her heart to a man?

Julie Lessman is an award-winning author whose tagline of "Passion with a Purpose" underscores her intense passion for both God and romance. Winner of the 2009 ACFW Debut Author of the Year and Holt Medallion Awards of Merit for Best First Book and Long Inspirational, Julie is also the recipient of 14 Romance Writers of America awards. Chosen as the #1 Romance Fiction Author of the Year in the Family Fiction magazine 2011 Readers' Choice Awards, Julie was also awarded #1 Series of the Year in that same poll. She resides in Missouri with her family and is the author of The Daughters of Boston series and the Winds of Change series whose first book, A Hope Undaunted, ranked #5 on Booklist's Top 10 Inspirational Fiction for 2010.


Cassidy McLaren is visiting San Francisco for the summer to get over a broken engagement and heart.  She’s done with men.  She literally bumps into the man who will steal her heart. Jamie McKenna wants the best for his mother and sisters and thinks marrying a rich woman will get them all they need.  Unfortunately the woman he falls for is broker than he is.  Can these two love birds move past their fears and trust in the love they have?

As a fan of Julie’s books I was sad to see her The Daughters of Boston series and the Winds of Change series come to an end but happy to know she was starting a new one, The Heart of San Francisco. 

I enjoy Julie’s writing because she draws you right into the pages.  I felt like I was in San Francisco, I could hear the trolley and see all the descriptions she wrote.  Cassidy was a cowgirl at heart but she knew how to be a lady.  Jamie has relied on himself so long, he hasn’t learned how to lean on the Lord.

Julie throws in a few secrets, lots of romance and shows you the true meaning of God’s love.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: A Little Bit Naughty by Farrah Rochon

Sometimes a girl can't help being a little bit naughty...

Jada Dangerfield was living her fairy tale—married to her high school sweetheart and working in her dream job—until it all came crashing down. Struggling to make ends meet, the unemployed divorcĂ©e stumbles upon a decidedly naughty new income stream, selling erotic toys to the women of her small hometown. And when Jada gets the chance to host a "Naughty Nights" party at the home of her uptight life-long nemesis Mason Coleman, she realizes it’s the perfect way to get under the skin of the one person who has always made her feel as if she wasn’t good enough.

Mason Coleman relishes his career as a high-powered tax attorney, but his most important job is keeping the promise he made to his father to watch out for his baby sister...even though she hasn't been a "baby" in thirty years. When he learns that his sister may be in trouble, Mason is forced to call on the one person he's never been able to abide, her brash and sexy friend, Jada Dangerfield. There's just one problem...how does he stop Jada from corrupting his sister with her kinky new business?

When this unlikely pair is forced to work together, things get a little bit naughty.

Belinda thought she was losing her man, but she was really losing her soul.

Mrs. Belinda Taylor is familiar with outside women trying to ruin her lackluster marriage to noted dermatologist, Dr. Desmond Taylor. However, she has been successful at halting their feeble attempts to fill her expensive pointed toe shoes using diabolical schemes.

When her latest confrontation lands her in prison on an attempted murder conviction, she has to face her darkest fears. By the time Belinda is released on parole, Desmond has disappeared with their two teenagers and started a new life with a new wife in parts unknown.

What will the future hold for Belinda? Will she lose her soul trying to win back her man or has she lost it all forever?

“Thanks for the opportunity to read Losing My Soul. Wow! It was definitely a page-turner!” Tracy L. Darity, Author of Love…Like Snow in Florida on a Hot Summer Day


“I’m telling you, the Lord can bring you from a mighty long ways. I was lost in a world of sin. Y’all don’t hear me!” Belinda Taylor shouted, holding the microphone in her right hand. She was in front of the podium at a modest-sized, non-denominational church in Dallas, Texas, pacing back and forth in a gold-textured, two-piece skirt suit with a pair of matching leather high–heeled, pointed-toe pumps. The congregation was on fire this morning, and every member present was standing on their feet clapping for the newly ordained minister as she delivered her first sermon.

Belinda paused for a second, wiping the perspiration from her brow, gathering her thoughts before continuing. Placing one hand on her hip, she straightened her back, and looked out over the crowd of almost three hundred people. Smiling at their happy faces, she said, “This time two years ago, I was married to a doctor, and we had two fine children. I had a three-story, seven-bedroom house. I had a maid to do the cleaning and the cooking. I drove a brand new Mercedes Benz. I owned the finest clothes, jewelry, and perfume money could buy. I traveled to all the exotic places I wanted to visit. But how many of you know today that I was drowning in sin! How many of you know today that sin was suffocating me, and I was slowly losing my soul! Hallelujah! God delivered me! Yes, He did!” Belinda shouted, pumping a fist in the air. Tears were streaming down her face like water from a broken faucet, but that didn’t stop her from praising Him.

The applause was too loud for Belinda to continue. She stopped, listening to the praises coming from the Abundantly Blessed Church members shouting out to her from every corner of the building. Leaning to one side, she said, “You see, I had low self-esteem because I didn’t know Jesus. I thought that having a successful man validated my existence. I thought that being wealthy would bring me happiness. But all it brought me was a twenty-year marriage filled with pain. Yes, I lived with heartbreaking hurt for all that time simply because I didn’t know any better. It was all because I didn’t know Jesus!” Belinda shouted, returning to the podium. She opened the Bible resting on the stand and turned to one of her favorite passages, Genesis 1:1-3, and read:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light;” and there was light.

“Amen. I’m so thankful for the light today! You see, when I first accepted the Lord as my Savior, I picked up this Bible and this was the first verse that I read,” she stated, shaking her head in disbelief. “Y’all just don’t know how much I’ve been through. My marriage almost killed me because I wanted to hold on to a man who didn’t even know how to love, let alone be married. While he was running around sleeping with other women, I was running behind him trying to destroy every woman that he touched. Then, I was happy when he came home to me. I was grateful for the crumbs and the leftovers. And I could keep on keeping up with the Joneses. But all of that eventually changed. All of that changed about two years ago after a devastating turn of events. You see, some of you know that I’ve served time in prison, but most of you don’t know how I got there or how I got out,” she said, pausing to look at the concern on many of the members’ faces who had returned to their seats. Belinda closed her eyes and recited a silent prayer. This wouldn’t be an easy story to tell, but she had to get it out…
