This has been some winter, but we’re halfway there to The Lighthouse, I’m happy to share. Watch for it later this spring.
A mist-shrouded lighthouse guides two souls home,
where a chance at love waits—if they’ll take it.
When her last living relative dies, Emily Cooke takes a sabbatical leave to take stock of her life. As she moves into her quaint beachfront rental, her new neighbor rumbles into the driveway next door on his vintage motorcycle—and ignores her neighborly wave.
Wes Taggert left behind a lucrative career that destroyed his faith in humanity. All he wants now is to be left alone, undisturbed. When news spreads that the historic lighthouse is slated to be demolished, Wes goes to a meeting of locals determined to rescue the crumbling landmark. His new neighbor is there. He can’t seem to ignore her.
The Hope Harbor Lighthouse has drawn them together. And it could guide them home, where a chance at love waits—if they’ll take it
In the dawn of a revolution, a young woman fights for land, liberty, and the man she loves.
An enigmatic stranger appears on Ana Martin’s Galveston doorstep, summoned by her father before his untimely death. When Ana boards a train bound for her uncle’s vast hacienda, Eduardo is there to see her safely to her new home in the stark desert landscape of northern Mexico.
Eduardo’s passionate ideals set him at odds with the corrupt Mexican government as his radical writings fuel a revolution and draw Ana closer. But it is Carlos, the daring rodeo rider and freedom fighter, who touches her soul, setting Ana Martin on a journey that will test her strength and forge her destiny.
TWO SNOWBOUND STRANGERS WHO THINK THEY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT WILL FIND OUT WHAT THEY NEED—AT THE CHRISTMAS CABIN.
Lawyer Abbie Harper rents a cabin for her own perfect Christmas. On Christmas Eve, she leaves the stress of her New York job and drives to the mountains, settling in for seven glorious days of peace on earth and good will toward men—so long as they steer clear of her.
Forest Ranger Jack Whelan is no good at relationships. He manages just fine by holding fast to one rule: Don’t let anyone get close. Then Abbie Harper rents his cabin. As a light snow falls, the furnace breaks down, and Jack is called in for repairs. When the storm picks up, they’re stranded together, turning their ordered lives upside down like a snow globe.
In April, a pipe burst and flooded more than half of our house. I am thrilled to say that (much as I love our contractor and his crew) the last worker left this afternoon, and the work is done! It will be a bit easier to write without the sweet sounds of nail guns and wet saws—not to mention being relegated to my great room dining table because my office was in the flood zone.
Nevertheless, I have powered through and completed a book. The Wanderer is with the editor now, and on target for a September 20 release. I’m especially pleased with this final book of the Highland Soldiers series, as I hope readers will be.
I’m now beginning a new project that I’m very excited about. I’m finally writing the Christmas story I’ve wanted to do for some time. Watch for it this Christmas season!
