Common Knowledge

Short biography
Barbara Ankrum says she's always been an incurable romantic, with a passion for books and stories about the healing power of love. It never occurred to her to write seriously until her husband, David, discovered a box full of her unfinished stories and insisted that she pursue her dream. Need she say more about why she believes in love?

With a successful career as a successful commercial actress behind her, Barbara decided she had plenty of eccentric characters to people the stories that inhabited her imagination. She wrote her first novel in between auditions and   led to a publishing contract, but she's never looked back. Years later, she still believes in happy endings and feels very lucky to do what she loves. Her historicals have won the prestigious Reviewer's Choice and K.I.S.S. Awards from Romantic Times Magazine, and she's been nominated for a RITA Award from Romance Writers of America.

Barbara lives in Southern California with her actor/writer/hero-husband, two cats and one scruffy, unrepentant dog at her side. They have two perfect grown children.



The Cowboy’s Bride by Barbara Ankrum
Story starts out on the wedding day of Isabella. Problem is she is a bit nervous and notices others reactions to her walking down the aisle. Her mother is high in politics and has invited all her friends and it's a huge gathering. Gina does her a favor and Isabella leaves the church and hops in the limo waiting to take them to their honeymoon. Problem is she has nothing but the clothes on her back, no id, no cash.
The limo driver, ex football player who owns the company will drive her to Seattle. He feels everybody has abandoned her...Things go smoothly til he gets a call from his family about their mother. He decides to take that journey home and Izzy is along for the ride, for now. Love how the plans with what to do for the ranch come into play and what things they can do right away...
Misunderstood conversations on the phone and now things aren't going so right...
Love travel, adventures, how to make things work, plans and how to make them work for the family. Great read, glad this is start of a new series and this is the first book...Can't wait to read more about the others.
Received this review copy from the publisher and this is my honest opinion.

Eve and Ben are just friends. His first love is medicine, and it seems like nothing can compete with that, not even Eve. A chance encounter with a reindeer while Eve is driving him to the airport is the beginning of a chain of unlikely events that will change both their lives. This light-hearted romance has some serious issues that bring Ben up short. Taking to heart some unsolicited advice, he makes the most important decision of his life. This lovely Christmas story is much more than a rom-com, and illustrates what is really important. Well written with likable characters, it’s a perfect story for Christmas.… (more)
