Barnes & Noble Announces The Cowboy Takes a Bride from Lori Wilde's Jubilee, Texas Series As the Latest Spotlight Pick

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, today announced that The Cowboy Takes a Bride from Lori Wilde's Jubilee, Texas series will be featured as the latest pick for “Barnes & Noble Spotlight” (www.bn.com/spotlight), a NOOK Book program that features great writers at irresistible prices. Twice a month, Barnes & Noble Spotlight picks an author of a popular or breakout series from various genres and offers one of their titles at a special price, helping NOOK® readers discover new authors and dive into an exciting series for a wallet-friendly price. From November 17 through November 30, Barnes & Noble's NOOK Bookstore will offer The Cowboy Takes a Bride from the bestselling Jubilee, Texas series for only 99 cents.

Jubilee, Texas resident Lissette Moncrief, is in no mood to celebrate Christmas this year, especially after she crashes her car into Rafferty Jones' pickup truck. Rafferty is definitely charming and handsome, but there is no way Lissy is going to let herself get involved with someone who will just end up leaving town. Unbeknownst to Lissy, Rafferty is actually in town to give her a share in a windfall that is rightfully hers and not his. However, after meeting Lissy, Rafferty decides to stick around and turn this into one Christmas neither of them is sure to forget. The Cowboy Takes a Bride is the first of three novels in the ongoing Jubilee, Texas series. The latest addition to the series, A Cowboy for Christmas, was released just last month.

Lori Wilde is The New York Times bestselling author of over 40 contemporary romance novels including the Jubilee, Texas series. As a two-time RITA finalist and four-time nominee for the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award, Lori is well known for her charming and witty writing style. Her books have been highlighted in many popular magazines including Cosmopolitan, Redbook and Complete Woman.

Spotlight features titles from different genres including popular romance, young adult and fiction. Customers who “like” NOOK on Facebook (www.facebook.com/nook) and follow NOOK on Twitter (www.twitter.com/nookbn) are among the first to hear about the Spotlight picks.
