Book 1 in Blooms of the West

Release Date: Dec. 2016

Carnival beauty, Sukey Ledbetter is not the marrying kind. She’s forced to take on a temporary alias as a mail-order bride in order to escape her treacherous uncle who is after her fortunes and intent on locking her up in the lunatic asylum.

Nothing prepares her, however, for the sight of the rugged cowboy who’s to escort her to her supposed-betrothed. Her escort is Coltrane Bloom, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

Book 2 in Blooms of the West

Release Date: July 18, 2017

Olivia Brown was Avonaco Bloom’s best friend’s little sister and off limits. Then she was older and Avon didn’t know how to accept this budding woman, especially when she confessed she loved him. He dismissed her, saying she was too young. He left on a scouting job. When he returned she had married his family’s enemy, a Stark.

Now she’s an elusive divorced woman with secrets in those gorgeous eyes. Can he convince her to confide in him, to trust him again not only with her well-being, but especially with the love he so carelessly tossed aside?


My Bio

I write character-driven Romances, whether they are set in the Historical West, Scottish Historicals, Regencies … or Contemporary. Whatever sub-genre I usually include paranormal or fantasy elements. I love~

  • A hero who takes charge, who seduces.
  • A heroine who has spunk to stand up to him. She can be shy and innocent, feisty, daring, kick-ass, no-nonsense… or anywhere in between.
  • Suspense or mystery with humor and adventure sprinkled in that will keep you turning the pages.
  • Intriguing inner emotional conflicts that’ll wrench your heart.

I adore traveling both in America and all over the World, meeting people, immersing myself into all kinds of cultures, visiting cemeteries, old buildings, bridges and exploring the countryside or city on my bicycle.
