About Ghost of a Chance by McKenna Dean:

At sixteen, Sarah Atwell walked away from her love of horses and a promising career as a competitive rider after discovering she’d inherited the family curse. Years later, her grandmother stunned everyone by leaving Sarah her horse farm—worth millions—but with conditions Sarah might not be able to meet.

A former Redclaw agent, Casey Barnes retired when a security assignment went bad, killing his partner and leaving him as a partial amputee. His inner wolf is in hiding. He’s been living quietly as a horse trainer, but June Atwell’s death now pits him against her granddaughter for rights to the stable.

With both of them snowed in at the farm, a series of increasingly serious accidents draws Sarah and Casey closer together, but they both harbor secrets that might tear them apart.

Ghost of a Chance is a paranormal romance story.

Excerpt:

For some reason, he glanced back at Sarah where she waited by the door. The backlight of falling snow through the glass in the shadowed hallway created the suggestion of a black-and-white photograph. The only spot of color was the bright red scarf at the collar of her coat and the wine-dark lipstick she wore. She leaned against the wall with her eyes closed. Something inside him clicked, as though recognizing a scene from a movie. His heart stopped a beat, flipped over, and thudded again with increased intensity.

No. It couldn’t be. Not her.

He hurried away, head still reeling at his reaction.

When he returned with an armload of clothing, she was nowhere to be seen. Her laptop sat by her shoes, one pretty little pump turned over on its side. As expected, he discovered her in the living room, staring at the pictures on the wall. “There you are.”

She jumped at the sound of his voice.

“Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.” He adjusted the heap of clothing piled over one arm and held out a pair of snow boots.

“She had so many photographs of me.” Sarah took the boots almost automatically, and indicated the walls covered with pictures, ones Casey had seen many times.

That had to be it. Why she felt so familiar. Why she seemed to be the one. Relief washed over him. Obviously he’d spent too much time alone if he thought Sarah Atwell was his destined mate.

98 Years Ago Suffragettes Triumph #WomensEqualityDay

Niney-eight years ago women finally won the right to vote, a triumph of the suffragette movement that went on for sixty years!

It still boggles my mind that it took sixty years of courageous activism from several generations of women before they were finally granted the right to vote. The arc of justice certainly does move slowly.

Yeah, they were justifiably angry. (Suffragette With A Sign
@ Therealdarla)

It all started with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, called by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. (Date corrected 8/27/18.)

The movement struggled for decades, but the tide turned during and after World War I. The Nineteenth Amendment was passed by Congress on May 21, 1919, before being sent to the states. On August 18, 1920, Tennessee voted and the amendment was ratified. Women voted for the first time that November.

In 1971, feminist and Congresswoman Bella Abzug introduced a resolution designating August 26th as Women’s Equality Day, and the resolution passed.

I feel it’s important that women remember the long struggle to win the right to vote. There are still forces in society that would like to stifle our voices. Voting is one way we can make our wishes known to our elected representatives. We learned in the last election, that matters can be decided by a relatively few votes, bringing home the lesson that every vote really does count.

Are you registered for November? I am and I intend to vote.
