With two young boys from her first marriage to raise, a newly deceased mail-order-husband, no food and no money, she is forced to accept an offer of shelter from the neighboring rancher who found her latest husband’s body. Ellen is no stranger to sacrifice as a means to achieve a better future for herself and her children, but there is something different about Nick. He has a drive and an ambition leading him to seek his own fortune, and that speaks to Ellen like a whispered caress. With Nick and two young boys, Ellen discovers a life she never believed possible.

file0001179129151To Have & To Hold

This time it’s Cody Montgomery’s second daughter Melissa who is going to find love. But Melissa has always been the studious one and is now To Have & To Holdworking as an actuary for SunWest Oil, her family’s company.  When she rents a little gatekeeper’s cottage, she finds herself falling in love with the groundskeeper of the old estate.

The estate is filled with wonderful childhood memories of the elderly couple who owned it. But nothing is as it appears and the secrets the estate holds sends Melissa searching for answers. Even the groundskeeper, Drexel, has hidden secrets.

As Melissa reconsiders her own path and what she wants in life, the groundskeeper finds himself in the middle of a huge dilemma. He has responsibilities that he cannot shirk, but they’ve already cost him one relationship. He quickly realizes that Melissa isn’t the type of young woman to have a casual affair with anyone. Furthermore there’s something about Melissa like a memory that he can’t recall, she haunts him and sends him delving into the past.

Can Melissa and Drexel find happiness when what appears on the surface belies the truth? But… His lips touched hers. Fire ripped through him as she leaned into him and he felt her pelvis against his leg. There was no question that he was falling into hell, but it sure felt like heaven.


A Rancher’s Dream

Another Creed’s Crossing historical set in the late 1890’s.

Ingrid is escaping from Texas and running for her life. Someone has killed her brother and then her father. She’s certain she’s next and she has no clue why.

Tiago Colima is the third son of a large Spanish ranching family and is looking to start his own ranch. Ingrid’s desire to go to Wyoming aligns perfectly with his plans. Ingrid can be the governess to his young daughter. With 100 head of cattle and they head to Creed’s Crossing.

Getting there is fraught with problems but Creed’s Crossing is far from being the friendly town that Tiago was hoping for and Ingrid isn’t who he thought she was. The world around him was nothing but a crackling hot glow, filled with smoke and the stench of lost dreams.


The Diary of Clare Coleman

I’m working on it! I promise, I really am. The hours of research that has gone into it, is unreal. The biggest problem is lack of time. Anyone know how to fit more hours in a day?

What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences. And when authors chat with each other, they often talk about their writing and their lives. Recipes. Writing. Relationships. In this cookbook 105 authors not only share their favorite recipes for fabulous cakes, pies, cookies, candy, and more, they also share the best advice they’ve ever received on love and writing.
