The giveaway for 6 signed first edition copies of Love Me Knots begins tomorrow, January 27th on Goodreads. This book is a collection of 5 of my favorite little romance stories- Stage Stop, Making the Right Choice, Sweetheart Lake, Flintlock and Scalpel and Not Always Black and White (in which I imagine what would have happened if Rex and Lucy didn't get back together at the end of The Subtlety of Light and Shadow)
In Stage Stop a photojournalist travels to Nevada to stay with a man who bought a ghost town back when she was a little girl. She wants to write an article about it now, and gathers enough material to make a coffee table book besides. There is a rattlesnake and a secret discovered in Stage Stop.
In Making the Right Choice a young woman raised in wealth and being forced to marry the son of her father's equally wealthy friend so they can merge their companies has been testing her wings in the real world and discovers she's a lot happier there, however her family continues to railroad her toward marriage to a man she does not love. She loses her heart to a rough-around-the-edges farmer with a violent home life, but he is the one with a vision for the future. As her wedding day arrives, Ellisan has to make a choice.
A young man returns home and discovers that the girl next door is the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with.
A female doctor is rudely awakened by an intruder in her home one night- a British redcoat from 1775! She quickly mobilizes her co-workers to save his life, and while the other doctors believe he has some sort of situational amnesia brought on by role-playing as a re-enactor, she becomes more and more convinced that he really did pass through a warp in time.
Two years after they broke up, remote, dark, damaged but brilliant and wealthy artist Rex Royce pursues young Lucie Palmer. At first she's not sure why he's suddenly come back into her life, but then she realizes that there is still something between them- something that they both want. Will they manage to make it work this time around?
I like to write about characters with flaws and vulnerabilities. I like to give them challenges to overcome. I like to make my characters fall in love...and of course live happily ever after despite all odds.
