About Rita Hestand

Last time we talked I told you I was working on boxsets, I got box sets done now for Brides of the West and Red River Valley Brides.. By putting all in one set it goes over a quarter of a million words. And too many pages to deal with. So I'm not trying to get more out of the boxsets, but want you to be able to open it on your computers and tablets without trouble. Family Matters and Family Ranch are much shorter novels than the Brides. So that's why I could fit it one boxset. But I purposely wrote longer ones because I read where readers like the longer books. So I'm complying with what the readers in general want.

As you all know, that know me, you realize I change covers a lot. There are many reasons for that, one is that covers become rather outdated and look old. Two, I'm saving myself some by not using the stock images too long. Three, I like to collect covers, and boy do I ever have a bunch. Sheri McGathey is the cover artist for my Brides of the West and a lot of other books. She does really good western covers and not all artist have or will. I have three or four sites that I prefer for covers, and I have done some of my own. But looking at them they just aren't as good as the professionals do them. So I replace them. If there is one you particularly don't want me to change, feel free to e-mail me and let me know.

I update and edit my books all the time. I have paid big dollars for edits but have found that they so often disagree on how to edit that it confuses me. However, I do want to let you know that for me editing is an on going process.

This year I am putting out a Christmas book Let It Snow. I hope you'll all enjoy it. It's on pre-order now, will be available in November. I wrote a children's Christmas story too, will try to get that out soon.

I am writing some teenage romance now, most are short stories a few will be a little longer, in novellas. I've been wanting to get this done for a while.

I have fourteen books in the Brides of the West Collection, all stories stand alone so if you are only interested in certain ones, you won't miss something from another book. I'm enlarging my Dream Catcher series, and working on the Connor Series too. Guarding Red Riding Hood is on pre-order too.

My books are growing over at I'll be adding more as time allows. And I hand pick the narrators. You'll find some really good work there and I hope you'll check them out. If you want to listen to one free, I can send coupons, let me know, but I'd sure appreciate you reviewing it, if you listen for free. Not for me, but for the marvelous job these narrators do on there. I am so very proud of them. So please give a listen. Send me an e-mail if you want a free coupon to listen to the whole story. My e-mail is

I really enjoyed this story. I have read all the books from this series because after getting to know each character in the first book, I just had to read their individual story. Rita Hestand is one of my favorite authors, she is one of the best.

Review by: Crystal Sworden on Oct. 10, 2011 :
I really liked all the books in this series, but really liked how each one wasn't the same general story. The idea might be the same if you look at it simply but the plot as a whole wasn't. The book was a great read that was only made better with the plot turns. Would read again and suggest it as a great read.
