The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo ~ Book Giveaway!

One of my favorite reads is set in the old west and written by Kathleen Y'Barbo.

I loved reading The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper, full of adventure, sass, and those wonderful embarrassing moments that are the prelude to romance. I can't wait for Kathleen's next book in the series, Anna Finch and the Hired Gun (Waterbrook June 2010). 

If you haven't read it yet, and you're waiting for a good read to pull you into adventure and romance, I highly recommend The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper (HIGHLY recommend!)

Here's a word from Kathleen on her most recent release and her upcoming title:

What if a nineteenth century city girl with dreams of stepping into a scene from her favorite dime novels finds a way to do just that? This was the starting point for what would become The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper (Waterbrook, June 2009). Eugenia “Gennie” Cooper was a New York socialite with a reading habit she hid from everyone but the help.

Daniel Beck, however, was far too busy tending his fortune and running Beck Mining to find time to read. With no interest in any sort of adventure, the Englishman turned Colorado resident needed help – as in someone to tame his adorable but allegedly out-of-control ten-year-old daughter. Thus, as fate and the Lord would have it, Gennie gets her chance to exchange train tickets with the woman headed out West and lands on Daniel’s doorstep. Unfortunately, he’s not home, which sets her off on a tirade about her opinion of a man who would so poorly esteem his duties as a parent.

With two opposite personalities about to attract, how could anything but a love story follow? What readers of The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper don’t know is that until Gennie galloped her way into Daniel’s life and heart, he was dangerously close to giving in to logic and marrying the girl next door, the lovesick Anna Finch.

So, what of Anna? Will she meet her match? Of course! If she can just get rid of the pesky Pinkerton bent on ruining all the fun. But that’s a story for another day. A story called Anna Finch and the Hired Gun (Waterbrook, June 2010).

I looked at her site and the one you are offering would be my top pick to check her out with. Maybe, I'll get to win it!

MJ said...

Oh, I forgot about having to tell you why. Just like the thought of a reader running out to act out her want of adventure that she gets through the books and then gets herself in "trouble"

Carmen7351 said...

I would have to agree with MJ. My favorite would be The Confidential Life of Eugenia Price. Her opinion of men and raising a child by himself piques my interest!!! Please enter me.

The Confidential life of Eugenia Cooper looks like a great read. I know I have read one of her books from the library, I just can't remember which one. I knew I enjoyed it a lot though.

Her website just went on my favorites. That was the first time I have looked at her site. I loved it.



Tina Dee Books said...


I love Kathleen's website too. Love that westerny feel with the blue bonnet colors!

Linore said...

Kathleen's books sound like fun because her heroine's promise to be a little over-the-top spunky. What girl doesn't love an over-the-top spunky heroine? : )

Edna said...

Oh I just love anything that Kathleen writes, I have some of her books and would love to win one.


Kathleen Y'Barbo said...

You guys are making me blush! Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful comments. Now that I've finished Anna's story (book 2), I'm beginning work on book 3. A little teaser: I'll be sending Charlotte, the troublemaking child in The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper to London to meet her match - literally!

Patricia PacJac Carroll said...

A feisty heroines, an Englishman, and an unruly daughter - how fun is that : ) Lots of material for a good read. And Kathleen Y'Barbo always delivers an interesting story.

Tina Dee Books said...
