*** Review, Giveaway & Book Tour For THE BRIDE WORE STARLIGHT by Lizbeth Selvig ***

Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys #3

Releasing on February 9. 2016

ARC requested through Tasty Book Tours, and kindly 
provided by Avon Impulse in exchange for a honest review.

This is the third book in series, but it was my first read from 
this series as well as from the author. It most certainly will not
 be my last. The books is well written and has a good flow. 
I was caught up by the first few pages. Despite being part of 
a series, this book can be read as a standalone. which was 
good thing for me. I had randomly picked this book to read 
not knowing that it was third book. I am disabled and spend
 a lot of my time in a wheelchair. I was so pissed at the self
 pitying that went on., but not for the reason you’d think. 
I was literally reading about myself in those first years of 
my disability. I cried with Joely, and felt so bad for her. I now
know looking back on my life how I must have looked to  
others. But just like Joely, I had a wonderful man to know
 some sense into me. And man did she get that from Alec.
 He may have had problems of his own, but he worked 
though them and was determined to get Joely to do this for 
herself. Some may have thought he was to tough on her 
but it was what she needed Just as it was for me. I love 
the determination to help and be with her. That is what we 
all need someone to love us that fiercely. Now before I ruin
 this for you I will leave off here.  I hope you enjoy this book
 as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider 
leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do,  
they value your opinions too.

Once comfortable on stage in front of thousands, Joely
Crockett is now mortified at the thought of walking—or 

rolling—down the aisle at her sisters’ wedding. Scarred and 
wheelchair-bound, the former beauty queen has lost more 
than the ability to walk—she’s lost her fire. But when one 
handsome, arrogant guest accuses her of milking her 
injuries and ignites her ire, Joely finally starts to feel truly
 alive again, and soon it’s impossible for her to resist 
her heart’s desire.

Alec Morrissey knows a little something about loss. A
famous rodeo cowboy before he was injured in Iraq, he’s

 managed to create something of a normal life, even if it’s 
not the one he always imagined. Encountering stunning but
 damaged Joely, he sees a kindred spirit who can learn from
 his mistakes.

As these two healing souls begin to fall in love under
the Wyoming stars, they must discover if they are willing to 

give in to the tragedies of life or fight for a future together.

The contact with Alec’s strong, long-fingered hand didn’t do anything to quell the annoyance dancing in her stomach. Or was it attraction? Or just a very long time since a man had taken her hand?
He tugged gently and braced his feet so she could stand and get her solid leg beneath her.
Her eyes came level with his tie. That put him at roughly six feet, she thought inanely, although, in truth, no thoughts but inane ones filled her head. Up close his eyes shone a dark, rich amber, and his full, upturned lips made him appear prone to smiling. His hat looked so natural on him he might well have been born with it on.
He held out his right elbow. “Just think of me as a human hiking stick.”
He hadn’t said “cane.” He hadn’t said “crutch.” She offered a tentative, grateful smile, took a deep breath, and nodded.
What could have been horribly awkward turned out to be an easy partnership. Alec seemed to know instinctively how to step where she needed him for support, and his arm offered a perfect grip that she could lean into as firmly as she wanted. It took a dozen or so strides to get the coordination right, but slowly she figured out how to step firmly with her right leg and use Alec’s weight to help swing and step quickly with her left. She’d walked like this with crutches, but this felt so quasi normal—she almost enjoyed it.
They came to the stairs, and she froze. A flat path was easy. Going up stairs was awkward but doable. But going down threw her weight forward, and she didn’t have the strength or balance to keep from pitching headfirst down the flight.
“We’re doing great,” he said. “There are only six.”
We’re doing fine,” he’d said. She didn’t know this man from any random person, and yet he knew how to speak as if they’d been doing this forever.
“I really should have a body on the other side, too,” she admitted reluctantly. “I suck at stairs.”
“Here’s the deal.” He removed her hand from his elbow and held it, then wrapped his right arm loosely around her waist. “It’s your balance that’s got you spooked. You haven’t

  1. Thank you for hosting and reviewing THE BRIDE WORE STARLIGHT today!

  2. Dear Kimmie Sue-
    I'm sorry to be late in the day with this message, but I wanted to come by and thank you so very much for featuring my book on your blog today. And I hope you'll forgive me for getting a little mushy--but your review was wonderful and I can't tell you how much it means to me. I was so nervous writing this book, afraid of getting the characterizations wrong. I knew I was taking a chance in the beginning of the book with Joely's whining and Alec's overbearing attitude. I hoped it would work anyway. You were so open to tell us that you're in a wheelchair--but I'm grateful you did. I know you would have let me "have it" had I been insensitive or cliche'. Thanks so much for validating my research and my desire to pay tribute to anyone who has to go through a devastating injury or illness.
    Best of luck--thanks for all you do to promote authors and readers!
