NEW YORK -- November 19, 2012

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” (, 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.
