Where Wild Roses Bloom JustRead Blog+ Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Where Wild Roses Bloom by Angela K. Couch, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Where Wild Roses Bloom
Title: Where Wild Roses Bloom  
Series: Heart of a Mountie #1  
Author: Angela K. Couch  
Publisher: Smitten Historical Romance  
Release Date: March 15, 2022  
Genre: Historical Romance, Christian  

When Lenora Perry’s dream of becoming an acclaimed singer dies a painful death, she attempts to escape her mistakes by fleeing north—directly into the path of an all-too-dashing Mountie. Though the man in scarlet appears eager to be rid of her, his home provides security, and his sister offers friendship—two things Lenora is desperate for after discovering her pregnancy. With the past dogging her footsteps and her future uncertain, dare she consider new dreams? 

Upholding the law makes up the fabric of Constable Edmond Bryce’s existence. As his five years of service draw to an end, he must decide whether or not to continue in his father’s footsteps—an increasingly difficult decision now that Miss Perry has infiltrated his life. Though she’s the daughter of a parson and a close friend to his sister, Edmond can’t push aside the feeling that Lenora hides more than she tells. But duty calls, leaving little time for matters of the heart. 

I'm happy to have author Angela Couch on the blog today talking about her new release, Where Wild Roses Bloom. 

Kate: What inspired you for Where Wild Roses Bloom?

Angela Couch: Strangely enough, Where Wild Roses Bloom started with a dream I had at a writer’s conference. I was praying about what direction I should take my writing. I believe God was giving me a nudge toward bringing my writing closer to home. With my stories, I’ve dabbled in Colonial America (Backcountry Brides), the American Revolution (Hearts at War series), the Oregon Trail (Heart of a Warrior), the American Civil War (Blacksmith Brides), and even WWII (which I’m not quite done with – watch for A Rose for the Resistance coming April 1st). I had the titles for my first Mountie series by the time I was flying home from the conference and over the next month I continued to hash out several stories set along the Canadian Rockies, and very close to where I live. 

Beyond setting and the occupation of the hero (because there aren't nearly enough stories of heroes in red!), the story was also inspired the understanding that we all have things in our past we are ashamed of. And we all have dreams for our futures that may or may not align with what God wants for us. These are some of the struggles both main characters must confront, as they work toward what we hope is a “happy ending”.  I hope is we all consider the directions God is trying to lead us in, as His way is where we will find peace and lasting happiness...and maybe even an idea for a good book or two. 

Kate: Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today and sharing about your new release and some other titles you have done and are working on! I love how you have incorporated the hope of what consider of a happy ending, but also what God wants from us and how he is always there to try and guide us to the way we need to go.

To keep from freezing in the Great White North, Angela K. Couch cuddles under quilts with her laptop. Winning short story contests, being a semi-finalist in ACFW’s Genesis Contest, and a finalist in the International Digital Awards also helped warm her up. As a passionate believer in Christ, her faith permeates the stories she tells. Her martial arts training, experience with horses, and appreciation for good romance sneak in there, as well. When not writing, she stays fit (and warm) by chasing after five munchkins.
