Giveaway + Book Blast - Montana Gallagher Series by M.K. McClintock

Gallagher’s Pride - Gallagher’s Hope - Gallagher’s Choice

Gallagher’s Pride Synopsis (Book One, Montana Gallagher Series)

She was on a quest for discovery. 
He was on a quest for revenge. 
Together they would discover a second chance. 

Brenna Cameron travels from Scotland after losing someone she loves in search of family she didn't know existed. Alone now in the world, Brenna makes an arduous journey, following the trail of discovery to Briarwood, Montana. Here she meets Ethan Gallagher, and the rest of the Gallagher clan. Only with their help is she able to discover lost family, heal old wounds and embark on a treacherous confrontation with a man who destroyed her family.

As head of the Gallagher clan, Ethan has more than enough to occupy his thoughts and time-he didn't need the complication of Brenna Cameron and he certainly didn't need the trouble that came with her. Ethan takes on the unwanted duty of self-appointed protector to the headstrong Scot, only to discover there is such a thing as second chances and more to life than revenge.


Gallagher’s Hope Synopsis (Book Two, Montana Gallagher Series)

She sought a new beginning.
He sought what he didn't know was missing.
Together they would discover hope in unlikely places.

Isabelle Rousseau must escape New Orleans and the memory of her family's tragic loss. With her younger brother in tow, she accepts a position as the new schoolteacher in Briarwood, Montana. Desperate to keep what's left of her family together, Isabelle joins her life with a stranger only to discover that trust and hope go hand in hand.

Gabriel Gallagher lived each day as it came believing he had everything he could possibly want . . . until a determined woman and her brother arrive with a little luggage and a lot of secrets. It will take a drastic choice to protect her and give them both hope for the future.

Excerpt One
Nothing existed of the life she had known. 
Her slender arm wrapped around the little boy’s shoulder and pulled him closer to his side. She could feel his slight trembling and wished more than anything that she could take away his sadness. They were alone in the world. They had each other, and she prayed that would be enough for them both. 

They stood and listened as the priest gave the final blessing, and two men lowered the caskets into the ground. The few other mourners who had been kind enough to attend the funeral asked her to leave with them, but she needed the closure. She needed her eyes to see what her heart refused to accept. ”An unfortunate affair,” everyone called the incident for it wasn’t every day that a man murdered his wife and then shot himself. Isabelle wished not to think on the possible reasons why, but she couldn’t seem to help herself. She never imagined her family to be anything but happy. Their father’s death, however, revealed the truth. 

No one spoke of it with them of course, but the lawyer had made the situation quite clear. 
They were penniless. 

Excerpt Two
“You promised, Gabriel, you promised!” 

Gabriel wasn’t a light sleeper. In fact, it often took a great deal to wake him from a pleasant slumber, and last night had been a peaceful sleep. He enjoyed waking with Isabelle in the room. What he didn’t enjoy was being yelled at before he’d even drunk his first cup of coffee. Mabel would most likely be back from her early-morning egg gathering in the barn, and he almost tasted the coffee he knew she’d have brewing. Isabelle’s words, though, did enough to bring him about. 

“Blazes, Isabelle, it’s too early for yelling, and I didn’t break my promise.” Gabriel moved around the side of the bed until he located his boots and slipped them on. Anger and irritation quickly overshadowed his happy memories of holding her in his arms the night before. 

“What do you call waking up next to me, Gabriel?” 

“If you’ll take a good look at yourself, and me for that matter, you’ll see we’re both fully dressed. More’s the pity.”


Gallagher’s Choice Synopsis (Book Three, Montana Gallagher Series)
Coming August 22, 2013

He finally had a family to call his own.
She now knew what it meant to risk it all.
Together they had a chance to find peace at last.

Eliza Gallagher is tough, resilient, and rides a horse like she was born in the saddle. All necessary qualities for someone who runs a cattle ranch.  She had more to avenge than any of them, and she was counting on those skills to finally find the justice they all sought -- until she realized it could cost her everything and everyone she loved. 

Ramsey Hunter finally knew what it was to have a family and what it took to keep that family together. He knew coming back wouldn’t be easy, but he never imagined what he would have to risk to keep it. 

Eliza got him home; now Ramsey has to do whatever it takes to save her life and help bring peace to Hawk’s Peak.
