I hope you are enjoying this shift in the seasons. It’s a great time to cuddle up with a book and I’m thrilled to announce I’ve got three releases coming out between now and January: a new Hope’s Crossing book, the latest Christmas story in my Cowboys of Cold Creek series for Special Edition and novella anthology with the wonderful Leanne Banks and Marie Ferrarella.
The first release is book six in my Hope’s Crossing series, CHRISTMAS IN SNOWFLAKE CANYON , available Oct 29. Don’t you just love this cover?
When I started the first Hope’s Crossing book BLACKBERRY SUMMER  several years ago, I never dreamed a rather unlikeable secondary character in that book would become one of my favorite heroines ever. In that first book, I needed a character who would provide a foil of sorts to the warm, caring heroine – someone who, while not necessarily a villainess, wasn’t a particularly nice person either. Genevieve Beaumont provided that magnificently! Through the course of the first five Hope’s Crossing books, Genevieve started taking on a life of her own. By the time I introduced Dylan Caine in WILLOWLEAF LANE , I knew she would be exactly the right person to provide this sexy, damaged warrior in need of a little laughter the perfect medicine to help him heal and decide he’s ready to live again.
Once I started unraveling all her edges, I came to adore Genevieve. Beneath her snobby prickles, she is funny and kind, with a deep vein of compassion she hides from the world. I loved watching her discover there was more to her than she had always believed.
The book is receiving some wonderful reviews. Publisher’s Weekly called it, “poignant and sweet” and Romantic Times Book Reviews gave it four stars and said, “Beautiful storytelling, down-to-earth characters, and a hero and heroine you want to root for fill the pages of this story that pulls at the heartstrings.”
On November 19th the latest Cowboys of Cold Creek book will be available from Special Edition. This is the long-awaited Ridge Bowman story! I have received more email asking for Ridge’s story than any other character I’ve ever created and I’m so thrilled with the way his book turned out. A COLD CREEK CHRISTMAS SURPRISE  brings back all the Bowmans and answers many of the pressing questions about their parents’ murders
Finally, just in time for the winter doldrums, you can pick up the destination wedding-themed anthology ISLAND PROMISES. I loved writing my novella in the book and I can promise you will adore Leanne Banks and Marie Ferrarella’s stories. Here’s the blurb about my story: Megan McNeil is genuinely happy to escort her little girls to their father’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii—even though she feels like a third wheel. One gorgeous groomsman definitely disagrees. But are they both carrying too much baggage to begin a new romance?
As always, I love to hear from readers! Make sure you’re signed up for my Facebook page so you can catch the latest news.
All my very best,
