Fletcher’s Pride, Book Eight, MacLarens of Boundary Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

Fletcher MacLaren lives a charmed life. He works hard and plays even harder. Handsome with an easy smile, he hasn’t considered settling down. Not until his gaze lands on the loveliest woman he’s ever seen. Creamy skin, golden blonde hair, and blue eyes so deep and clear, they sparkle. The first time he saw her, slowly descending the stairs of the saloon, she captured every man’s attention.

Madeleine Colbert shouldn’t want the tall, ridiculously attractive rancher whose heated gaze burns right through her. A haunted past and inability to stay in one place for long doesn’t bode well for any kind of relationship. And her job in the saloon isn’t what a respectable cowboy would consider suitable for anything other than a few fiery moments.

He can’t get her out of his mind. Fletch spends his days thinking of Maddy and his nights visiting the intriguing woman, until he needs her more than his next breath. But one short discussion with his father changes everything.

The note he sends cuts clean through, causing her heart to crack. Knowing he’ll never return, and with ruthless outlaws tracking her, Maddy makes the only decision possible. She runs.

Returning after several months, Fletcher’s first thought is of Maddy. The time away has been miserable. All he wants is to make amends and continue with what they had before he left.

For the first time in his life, he learns what it’s like to not get what he wants.
Hardship continues to plague Maddy. When the outlaws discover her new location, she finds herself on the run again, returning to Conviction. But not to the man she loves.

She may have outrun the people chasing her, but it doesn’t mean she’s escaped the one man who offers nothing except another broken heart. And now, Maddy is hiding her biggest secret of all.

Fletcher’s Pride, book eight in the MacLarens of Boundary Mountain Historical Western Romance Series, is a stand-alone, full-length novel with an HEA and no cliffhanger.

Solitude Gorge, Book Ten, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

Travis Dixon carved out a life in the rugged Montana territory, far away from the memories of a past defined by the Civil War and personal tragedy. Training wild horses fills his days, while bunkhouse chatter completes his nights. An unlikely friendship with a beautiful widow provides the only female companionship he’s had since the heartbreaking death of his wife and daughter.

Isabella Boucher, a wealthy East Coast widow, is content working as a nanny to a prominent ranching family. She’s developed friendships she can depend upon and a special bond with a man fighting his broken past. A man she loves, but who is unable to return her affection.

Stunned when Travis decides to put distance between them, she makes the difficult decision to accept invitations from other eligible men. In time, she hopes to forget her love for the rugged cowboy and force him from her heart.

Unfortunately, she learns choices such as this are never that easy. As much as Isabella yearns for a life with Travis, their tragic histories form a barrier neither can surmount.

The arrival of a friend from Isabella’s past, plus a series of events threatening the town, forces them to take a hard look at themselves, at the same time doing their best to stay out of the crosshairs of a new enemy.

Danger lurks in every direction, appearing in the form of men without conscience or remorse.

Will protecting each other help break down their walls or force another wedge between them? Will Travis be able to push his pain aside to see what’s been in front of him all along?

Did the cavalry really impact the outcome of the Civil War? Many military leaders marginalized the use of expert horsemen as being able to impact the war’s outcome. Those men soon learned how wrong they were. Read my latest blog about the Battle of Brandy Station—pitting two great cavalry armies against each other. http://geni.us/0lTr5o

What’s a Dime Novel? Some considered them 19th century trash literature. Today, they’re viewed as a glimpse into the past, a way for those unfamiliar with the rugged frontier to visit a heathen land from the comfort of their parlors. See how these cheap, very prolific stories shaped the perception of our American West in my latest blog about Dime Novels.

WOOHOO! It’s release day!
Forsaken Falls, Book Nine, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

Wyatt Jackson has lost everything. Successful in his role as a soldier, he can no longer find a home in the region he fought so hard to save. Sick and on the edge of starvation, he journeys west, searching for the one man who might help him. A deputy in Splendor, Montana.

Nora Evans has never found a place to call home. The illegitimate outcast of a wealthy New York family, her father sends her west to a step-brother who has no knowledge of her existence. Considering herself a spinster at twenty-nine, she focuses on building a new life, believing love and marriage hold no place in her future. Not even to the handsome, younger ranch hand she can’t push from her thoughts.

Accepting a position at Redemption’s Edge, Wyatt uses the one skill he perfected before the war—training horses. It’s his gift, and he loves the work. There’s no room for romance, even if he can’t stay away from the beautiful sister of the town’s sheriff.

Nora tries hard to ignore the intense desire she feels when Wyatt is near. It’s especially difficult when his continued attention gives her hope she’d long thought buried.

Aside from their own misgivings, another menace lurks close by, threatening Nora, Wyatt, and the people they care about. Men who’d love nothing more than to see him dead prowl the lands around Splendor, biding their time, waiting to exact revenge

As much as they yearn for each other, their personal pasts stand in the way. But the bigger obstacle may be the one they don’t see. A danger perpetrated by men who can’t leave the war behind.

Forsaken Falls, book nine in the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series, is a full-length novel with an HEA and no cliffhanger.

The impact of guerilla groups, such as Quantrill’s Raiders, are included in the storyline in Forsaken Falls, book 9 in my Redemption Mountain series. Read about William Quantrill and the role a few Confederate officers played in encouraging these guerilla groups to disrupt Union supply lines and discourage sympathies of the North in my latest blog, Raiders of the Civil War.

Frontier Saloons—gritty, loud, and sometimes dangerous. Courage Canyon, book 8 in my Redemption Mountain series, takes place in the fictional town of Splendor, Montana. Splendor has two prominent saloons, the Dixie and the Wild Rose. As with all of my historical books, I do quite a bit of research and thought I’d share some of what I’ve learned about frontier saloons in my newest blog post.

Ever wondered what part women played as spies during the Civil War? Few carried rifles on the front lines, but several played an important part in moving sensitive information between the North and South.

Check out my newest blog post related to Sam’s Legacy, book four in my MacLarens of Boundary Mountain historical western romance series. Your comments and thoughts are welcome and encouraged.
