Home in Whiskey Creek
Revised from her debut novel originally published by Bantam Loveswept in 1996 as The Mating Game.
Ryder Shaw is still the most gorgeous male Carly Jacobs has ever known! She has never forgotten her teenage crush — or his betrayal years before — but now she’s back in her Wyoming hometown with a job to do. Though Carly wants nothing to do with the man she once loved and now despises, she has to stop a vicious poacher and she needs Ryder’s help.
As their journey takes them into the Wyoming wilderness, she can’t help but surrender to the lightning storm of passion between them, but can she find a way to forgive the man she had loved first and best?
In Too Deep
Healing hearts and second chances …
When Will Tanner stopped her for speeding on a Wyoming backroad, Andrea McPhee couldn’t resist trying to tease a smile out of the brooding temporary sheriff, aching to bring some light to hold back the dark shadows. Her best friend’s older brother has journeyed through hell and deserves to find heaven on the other side – or at least a little peace.
Though fiercely drawn to the comfort of her arms, Will isn’t sure he can find room for a woman like Andie in a life focused on vengeance – until he discovers she has secrets of her own.
Can a man possessed by the past give the woman who loves him new hope? And can a woman still fighting her own demons be the sanctuary he needs?
Originally published in 1997 as Loveswept #833, IN TOO DEEP is available for the first time in digital form.
Romantic Times gave the book four stars and reviewer Melinda Helfer said, “Ms. Thayne creates richly textured characters who engage both our hearts and minds in this deftly plotted, emotionally uplifting love story.”
Rachel Lawrence hasn’t been back to Wyoming since her husband died fighting a brush fire, but if seeing her beloved nephews again means facing rancher Sam Wyatt and the guilt she still feels, she’s willing to take the risk.
Sam has plenty of his own guilt. He walked away from fighting fires and built a comfortable life on the ranch for him and his sons in Whiskey Creek. The last thing he needs is for Rachel to come back with her green eyes, her long legs and the smile he’s never been able to forget.
Stunned by the heat of his attraction for her, Sam aches to lose himself in her arms, but can a rough-edged cowboy make a woman like her burn? And is Rachel strong enough to surrender her fear of losing all she loved again? A classic story of loss, hope and the promise of forever.

The remote Wyoming cabin he had chosen for his escape suits high-powered attorney Nicholas Kincaid just fine — at least it did, until a lovely shepherdess and her sheep invade his privacy!
Ivy Parker needs Nick’s pasture for her flock, but negotiating with this stubborn man who has lost faith in everything is a bigger challenge than keeping her ranch in the black.
When dark shadows threaten the world Ivy loves, she tries to stand her ground alone, as she always has. But can a powerful warrior who has seen too much of betrayal find his destiny — and a home he has never known — in her heart?
