Works in Progress

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

What’s Coming?


Book #5 in the Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight

Judy Carlson’s book is coming in 2019 or early 2020. It’s looking like it will be 2020. Fans of my Double Dutch Ranch Series and the Spin Off Series wanted to see this book happen. Is it time for Judy Carlson to take on a serious relationship? A fine new gentleman made his appearance in Lassoing the Last Dance, Book Four. He was, indeed, impressed with Judy. However, someone else lurks in the background with a secret admiration.

Oh, they will let you know in this upcoming novel with multiple POVs because you know, the Carlson Cowboys will not sit quiet when a man sweeps their mom off her feet. Hmm… The plot thickens.

HINT: They approve of one of them but not the other. Will Judy choose the right one and what if she doesn’t?

Book #6 Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight 

Publishing date to be determined.

Book #2: Two-Five Ranch Outlaws Series

The hero in book two is Cade Outlaw and Faith is the heroine. At first, I didn’t want Faith to be the heroine in this book. Well, she thought otherwise and let me know she wanted a second chance with Cade and for people to know her story. She’s right. I realized it could be none other than her. See the first book in this series HERE.


Will there be a fourth book in this series? I’ve been tossing it back and forth whether to write another book in this series. Since I wrote the last book, I had almost 100% settled on not writing a fourth book. Nevertheless, there has always been a tug nagging me to write another book in the series. So now, I’m considering a fourth book. Ideas are already flowing! So little time. So much to write. 🙂 Oh, my, I started writing chapter one…
