It’s Getting Warmer Out There
Ah … the temptation is real. Ditch the writing and go for a drive with the windows down and sunroof open. Instead, I’ve opted for opening the windows in my office, anchoring my butt to the chair, and working. However, there’s always time for a cup of coffee and a good book!
What I’m Reading This Week
Harrison . . .
Once his fortune in silver mining is secured, Harrison Carter finally sends back home for his fiancée. It’s been four years since he’s seen Jenny.
But it’s Retta Pierce, Jenny’s sister, who arrives by stagecoach with young daughter Adeline in tow. When this lovely, soiled dove brings devastating news and a written plea from Jenny to marry and care for Retta and little Addie, what’s a good man to do?
Retta . . .
Fulfilling her dying sister’s request, Retta travels across dangerous territory to marry a man she barely remembers. But the hard miner who meets her at the stagecoach surely isn’t the same one her sister claimed was kind and honorable, a gentleman who’ll embrace her and her daughter as if they were his own. Has she made a mistake she’ll pay for, the rest of her life?
Two People . . .
Thrown together in shared sorrow, Harrison and Retta struggle to forge a life in the brand-new state of late-nineteenth-century Colorado.

Her Secret Santa Surprise – Set in 1965, this book is a sequel to last year’s Halloween-themed book, Bewitched. A cross between a holiday story and my all-time favorite television rom-com, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, it’s about finding romance in the newsroom.
Scheduled for release in time for the 2018 holiday season. From The Wild Rose Press.
