It’s Party Time!

These are exciting, wild, fun-filled, stressful, satisfying, (add your adjective) days for me. 

Available on Amazon

On Monday, Kit and Joanna make their public appearance when my historical romance A Reluctant Melody releases! And I’m inviting you to be involved in the celebration!

Let’s Party!!

We’ll party on Facebook on Tuesday (the 12th) from 12-2 PM EST. So please plan to come by for book quotes, social mingling, a couple of surprises, and—of course—giveaways! 

Let’s Talk!!

The blog tour has begun. Click here for a list of stops. Some of these bloggers will host a giveaway of print or e-book copies of A Reluctant Melody. Stop by and let’s talk about things like books, writing, historical tidbits, personal favorites, buttermilk pie and Italian beef. In an interview, I was asked my favorite color. What’s yours?

Let’s Get Started on the Giveaways!

My marketing master Paige Boggs set up a drawing for a $20 Amazon gift card. You’ll find the opportunity to enter in the pinned post on the event page.

Romance. Blackmail. Murder. Second chances. 

One early reviewer wrote: 

“Although the atmosphere fills your senses, it is the characters who truly shine in this complicated yet well developed story. Ms. Ardoin creates believable protagonists and antagonists who draw you into understanding the complexities of life, the ramifications of sin, and the redemption that is possible for all if they will accept it. This is a historical I will be recommending for a long time. A five-star tale of intrigue, hope and romance. Well done!”

What is it about?

Kit Barnes’ alcoholism ruined more lives than his own. Now sober, he wants to make amends by opening a mission for drunkards. But the most suitable location belongs to Joanna Cranston Stewart, a love from his sordid past. 

Friends of her late husband blame Joanna for his death. Although eager to flee from the rumors, she will let the walls of her rundown property crumble around her before she allows Kit back into her life. 

When a blackmailer threatens to reveal Joanna’s long-held secret, will she risk losing everything she owns to Kit … including her heart?

I hope you will fall in love with Kit Barnes and Joanna Stewart!






As an author of heartwarming historical and contemporary romance, Sandra Ardoin engages readers with page-turning stories of love and faith. Rarely out of reach of a book, she's also an armchair sports enthusiast, country music listener, and seldom says no to eating out.
