Monday Moments with Angela Raines/Doris McCraw

Doris McCraw
My Monday Moments slot features the author- Angela Raines 
- who is also a very talented  lady I know better as fellow blogger Doris McCraw. 

I recently did a short review on one of her stories - Home For His Heart - and today, you'll see more of her work.

At my regular Writing Wranglers and Warriors Blog, I love to read about Doris' updates on her excellent research into the earliest female doctors of Colorado. If you want to read more of that wonderful writing you can access it via the archives on the wranglers blog  HERE and she also pens excellent poems- particularly haiku on her Five Seven Five blog.

And today, you'll see that as well as writing Western Romances she also writes in the Medieval Era.

Writing as Angela Raines, she has 4 stories available to buy now, 2 of which are within anthologies.

The 2 novels by Angela Raines are:

Clara Cross ran away as a young girl after the suspicious deaths of her parents, and has spent the last nine years trying to find safety from a man she had reason to fear. Finally landing in the small town of Agate Gulch in the high Colorado mountains, she believes she may have found a safe home at last, and can send for the brother she had to leave behind. Sam Tower is the man she loves—but would he ever give her a second glance? When Clara’s past catches up with her, her survival depends on her own strength and courage, as well as Sam’s. 

Sam Tower runs on a ranch with his friend, Paul Ward, near Agate Gulch. Sam has been running from the past since the loss of his family, and the injury he received as a fife and drum boy in the Civil War. Clara is everything he admires and loves—but she is too good a person for him. When Clara is kidnapped, Sam begins a journey of discovery and finds what he’s always wanted—a HOME FOR HIS HEART.


Given a chance at freedom for a crime he didn't commit, Drew Carson must kill for his pardon. Taken to a lush valley where a beautiful woman lives, Luke, Drew's "rescuer", lets him know that the woman is his target--kill her, and he's a free man. But there's something strange about the valley. Time stands still, and nothing is as it seems. Will Drew trade murder for love?
