Romance with heart and soul

I spend much of my days sitting in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me that I keep thinking someday they might give me a call and come over for coffee. I know it sounds a bit strange but all of us writers have our quirks.

It's a good life, out here. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound), the occasional hum of the refrigerator and the click of my keyboard keys, and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won't obey life here is pretty good. Just the way I like it.

I have a new series

Big Sky Cowboys the name of the series.

The first book in the series is called, Wrangling the Cowboy's Heart. It was released thrugh Harlequin and now I'm publishing it again under my Misty Ridge Publishing imprint.

She yearns to be free. He wants to settle down.

When old attractions spark, can they find a middle ground?


Free spirited musician Jodie McCauley is only back on the family ranch for one reason: To fulfill the terms of her father’s will. Once that’s done, she’s brushing off the dust of a place she never truly called home — forever.

Even so, selling the ranch means disposing of Jodie’s beloved horses. She can’t stand the idea of sending them to auction, wild with neglect. But if she can get them trained, they’ll go to good homes.

And that means asking the boy she once loved for help.

Finn Ridley wants to turn Jodie’s request down, but when his flaky mother bails on accompanying a well-known singer, he’s forced to ask Jodie for something in return. Finn remembers Jodie as a wild child — irresponsible and undependable, not the family-oriented woman he’s looking for. But working together means old feelings and repressed memories make an unwelcome comeback.

A second chance seems impossible, but there is a small hope that wild hearts can be tamed.
