Free ebooks: A Tailor-Made Bride and Making Waves

   I have a couple of new freebies to tell you about today. These are both classified as historical romance/Christian Fiction. And they both have beautiful covers that make you want to pick the book up!

   The first book is 'A Tailor-Made Bride' by Karen Witemeyer. This story is set in Texas in the early 1880s. Hannah Richards comes to the small town of Coventry to set up a dress shop. In town, she comes across the arrogant and gruff livery man, Jericho Tucker, who wants nothing to do with her. I haven't read this book but, seeing that this is classified as romance, I'm sure we all know what to expect. But it's the journey getting there that makes this one worth reading. I gets very high reviews from the readers at Goodreads, where it get 3.95 stars. You can read those reviews here. Here is the synopsis from Barnes and Noble.

Jericho "J.T." Tucker wants nothing to do with Coventry, Texas's new dressmaker. He's all too familiar with her kind—shallow women
more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothing, this seamstress is not at all what he expected.
Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff
manner while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man?
When Hannah decides to help Jericho's sister catch a beau—leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town—will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?

   This is available as a freebie in most formats. Pick up the Kindle version here, the Nook version here, the Sony Reader version here, the Kobo version here, or a copy from Borders here.

   In 'Making Waves' by Lorna Seilstad the scene shift to 1895 Iowa. Marguerite Westing is a bright spirited young woman with a wealthy, boring suitor, Roger Gordon, who is favored by Marguerite mother as her future husband. The Westing family decides to summer at Lake Manawa, a popular resort, and much to Marguerites relief, away from the boring Roger. While there, Marguerite discovers new interests; sailing and the sailing instructor, Trip Andrews. She now is faced with a choice; marry Roger and save her father from financial ruin, or pursue the interesting Trip? This book is given 4.20 stars here at Goodreads where you can read more reviews. Here is the synopsis from Barnes and Noble.

When spunky Marguerite Westing discovers that her family will summer at Lake Manawa in 1895, she couldn't be more thrilled. It is the perfect way to escape her agonizingly boring suitor, Roger Gordon. It's also where she stumbles upon two new loves: sailing, and sailing instructor Trip Andrews. But this summer of fun turns to turmoil as her father's gambling problems threaten to ruin the family forever. Will free-spirited Marguerite marry Roger to save her father's name and fortune? Or will she follow her heart—even if it means abandoning the family she loves?
