She’s an environmental activist. He’s with big oil. They can’t agree on a single thing, but… that won’t stop them from falling in love.

Rafe (Rocky Mountain Bachelors Book2)

Opposites do attract, so they say…

Having taken up with a local protest group, Keely Moore is passionate about the environment and ready to protest against big business, Harrison Oil & Gas preparing to drill in the mountains nearby. When Rafe Tucker arrives in town, taking a cabin at Keely’s bed and breakfast, she is stunned to discover his involvement with the oil company, working for them as chief of mining operations. Incensed, she vows to hate him, although the youngest Tucker brother is far too handsome and disarmingly charming.

Rafe understands Keely’s distress, vowing to safely oversee the drill site, but the protest force is stronger than expected, and so is his attraction to the lovely blonde. When plans go awry, Rafe is faced with a staggering decision—a decision that will change the course of his life forever.

Rocky Mountain Bachelors

rmb_cover1_600x900

I am writing a few contemporary western romances set in Colorado.  I did turn up the heat level for these books, but they are still pretty clean.

Can a “plain Jane” tame a hot as hell cowboy?

Curt Tucker is used to melting hearts, having romanced his way through town, but what he really wants—the only woman he’s ever truly loved—she’s long gone. Jane Carpenter fell hard for the sexy cowboy, but his bad boy ways caught up with him, breaking her heart into a million pieces.

Now… years later… they are face to face again… nothing having changed. Curt, rugged and handsome, is even hotter than she remembered, weakening her resolve not to fall for him again.

He let her go once, but now… nothing will stop him from making her his forever.

Now available on Kindle at Amazon.

Bachelors of the Prairie

I’m publishing a new Wild West series filled with handsome heroes and sassy damsels in distress. The first in the Bachelors of the Prairie series is The Gambler.

Now available for 99 cents or free with Kindle Unlimited!

After stealing money from a handsome gambler who kindly offered her assistance, Lea Duncan runs from him, although the memory of that night will haunt her forever. The beauty with the emerald green eyes played him for a fool, which is something Nash can never forgive. Gambling with ruthless intensity and skill, he’s amassed a fortune, heading west to secure land. That is, until he stumbles upon an old enemy—the stunning saloon girl who hurt his pride, stole his money, and made off with his heart.

An Unexpected Widow – Audio Book Edition

The first book in The Colorado Brides Series is now available as an audio book at Amazon, iTunes, and Audible.

Hannah Hoffman Clark is the spirited young wife of Denver City’s only preacher, Frank Clark. After arriving by wagon to the howling wilderness of the unexplored west, they settled on land, built a home, and began what they thought would be a long and prosperous life together. After an accident leaves Frank without feeling in his legs, the dream of self-sufficiency suddenly slips away, but even more tragedy is on the horizon for Hannah.

Once widowed, she struggles to cope with her loss, relying on those her husband had hired, especially Nathan Weaver, a no good gambler and drunkard. While the tenuous hold she has on her sanity crumbles, her connection with Nathan becomes something far greater than she could have ever imagined, but her family would be scandalized if she married such a man.

One should never judge a book by its cover, and Nathan, although rough around the edges and crude, has his heart in the right place, and it belongs to Hannah… if only she could see it.

Madeline: The Outlaw’s Redemption

 

She’s the daughter of a lawman. He’s a notorious outlaw, or is he? They can never be together, but this fiery redhead will defy her family to marry the man she loves.

On the verge of an engagement to Samuel Hardy, Madeline Ashton is a carefree young woman with the world at her feet. It’s not until her father arrests the notorious “Gentleman Bandit” that she meets Jared Stott, staring at the handsome outlaw through the bars of a jail cell.

Having come to the Colorado Territory to find a wife and open a shop, Jared Stott is stunned to be arrested, having been implicated in a series of robberies he did not commit. Being the identical brother of a bank robber, no one believes his innocence, except the beautiful redhead, whose father happens to be a lawman.

Surviving the hangman’s noose is only the beginning of Jared Stott’s troubles, because Madeline’s family is firmly against him. To compound matters, he is saddled with his brother’s wife and child, a burden worsened by the woman’s drinking. The only glimmer of light on the horizon is Madeline, who is steadfast in her love for him and her faith in the Lord, hoping that one day they can be together.

Daisy: Brides of the Rockies

BOTR Book 10 Cover Rev C_300x450

My new release, Daisy: Brides of the Rockies is free thru Monday at Amazon. Two of my other books are also on sale.

Jesse Gunn’s farmer friends convince him to have his fortune told, but he never expected the gypsy fortuneteller with the fake accent to be so lovely, so enticing. Intrigued, he asks her to dinner, but Daisy has an agenda, thinking his father is also her own. Stunned by the accusation, Jesse doubts this claim. Daisy couldn’t possibly be his sister, or could she?

An Unexpected Husband, the sixth book of The Colorado Brides Series, is $0.99 for a limited time.
Prairie Madness is also $0.99.

Here is an excerpt from Daisy.

An hour and a half later, I was ready to close the shop, having read for six people and earned a few coins. Fay had left, needing to prepare for the show tonight. I washed the coal from my hair, dunking my head in a bowl of water. Then I wiped away the kohl from around my eyes. I wore my best dress, a grey and black skirt with a bustle and a fitted bodice. Gathering my hair into a bun, I tied the ribbons of a bonnet beneath my chin, examining myself in the mirror. I longed to look like this every day, not just for church or special occasions.

“You look like a proper lady now,” I murmured to myself.

A small revolver remained hidden in a drawstring purse, and I figured I would not have to use it, but a girl could never be too sure. The rap on the door made me jump.

“Just a moment.” Was that Mr. Gunn already? I released the lock, peeking outside at the tall man who stood on my stoop. “Hello.”

He grinned beneath a wide-brimmed hat. “Evenin’.”

“You’re early.”

“You look ready to me.”

“I am.”

“Then what are we waiting for?”

He seemed entirely too eager to whisk me away. “W-where are we going again?”

“To my parent’s farm. It’s a few miles into the valley.”

“And you’ll bring me back, right?”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“How do you propose we arrive? I wasn’t planning on walking that far.”

“Me either. I got a horse and wagon. Is that acceptable to you?”

“That’s fine.” I closed the door behind me, turning the key in the lock. One could never trust the circus folk, as quite a few had been thieves in earlier careers. “I’m ready then.” He helped me down the steps. “Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.”

I marveled at his height, his handsome face hidden beneath several days worth of hair growth. “Does your family know about me?”

“I’ll let you fill ‘em in on all the details, honey.”

“You don’t believe I’m your sister, do you?”

“Not in the least, but if it amuses you to think so, then be my guest.”

“What if I am?”

“That remains to be seen.”

I had brought a gold watch, with Mr. Gunn’s initials inscribed in the back. It was the only bit of proof I had that he was my father, that and my birth certificate, but I kept the paper hidden in a safe place.

“You sure you don’t recognize your own kin?”

He glanced at me, smirking. “You look nothing like a Gunn, Daisy.”

“I inherited my looks from my mother.”

“It’s not just the physical attributes. I can assure you. If you really were my sister, I wouldn’t be attracted to you in the least.” His eyes skimmed over me, their depths darkening. “As it is, I find you extremely attractive.”

I pursed my lips. “Well, that’s not good.”

“Not for your claim to my name. Nope.”

The Carson Brothers of Kansas

mailorderbrideCHARLIE_200x300

In early January, I’m releasing a four book series, a western drama of romance and adventure set in 1870’s Kansas.

The Wild West was tamed one man at a time…

In the age of gunslingers, train robberies, and frontier towns, the Carson brothers of Kansas are notorious for their rowdy and lawless ways. But, even the most hardened soul can’t resist falling in love when he meets his match, and these cowboys will do that and more.

The first book in the series is A Mail Order Bride for Charlie



On a side note, I need to write the final installment of The Colorado Brides Series. I have Susanna’s story all plotted out, but the Carson Brothers waylaid me. The final book of TCBS is An Unexpected Kiss. I also want to write more on The Arizona Brides Series. I need to clone myself so I can be more productive. I don’t think that’s going to happen though…
