Works in Progress

I love writing contemporary western romance. To write a series is even better. It’s so much fun to give the characters from one book, their own story.

  • Book #4: In this fifth book in the series, a new love blooms at the Double Dutch. You know ranch hands fall in love too. <3  Roxanne and Randy first met in Tristan’s Destiny, Bonus Book 1.5. Now nearly two years later…

Horse trainer and ranch hand Randy Drake believes he and Roxanne, the gorgeous woman he meets at the Double Dutch Ranch, have something special. A relationship that can last, even if she does live in a different state. So why does she stop answering his texts, emails, and phone calls?

Roxanne Connor has a good reason for not letting Randy know she is moving back to her home town—swearing her friends to secrecy. Why rekindle a relationship that has no future? Randy is everything she’d want in a man, but now nothing is the same, and she refuses to put him in the place of having to make a life-changing decision.

When they do come face to face, will they discover the embers that glowed eight months ago have died down, or have sparks been ignited and are ready to burst into a full-blown blaze?

Is there a character in the series you’d like to see get their own book? Contact me.

Visions of Enchantment and Enchantment’s Embrace, a romantic time-travel series, is now out of print. I’ve considered bringing the books back to life, but at this time it’s doubtful. This project is on the back burner until I make the decision.
