A Christmas Story from Salvation, Texas: Winning the Blacksmith’s Heart

It’s time to return to Salvation, Texas for a heartwarming story of about the healing of broken families and the love that can blossom when two people work hard together to make a new life together.

Orphan Ida Cleary is looking to start a family out West:  she wants to give her children the loving home she never had.

Blacksmith Walter Jonas couldn’t agree more. Estranged from his own father for almost a decade and still grieving the loss of his mother, he’s worked hard to carve out a place for himself in the world.

But as factory-produced good from back East eat into Walter’s livelihood, he and Ida will need every bit of creativity they have to avoid being tossed out into the cold by Christmas.

Seven Brides for Seven Lawmen: Samuel’s Secret (Mail-Order Brides of Resurrection, Book 1)

One of my absolute favorite musicals as a teenager was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. So I couldn’t resist the idea of a mail-order bride series that played off that title.

This is the first book in a new series set in the might-have-been frontier town of Resurrection, Kansas. The Mail-Order Brides of Resurrection books will be a bit lighter than the Salvation books, with more humor.

I hope you like them!


Winning the Bounty Hunter’s Heart (Mail-Order Brides of Salvation, Book 4)

Book 4 in the Mail-Order Brides of Salvation has a little bit more adventure than the first three books had. The heroine, Colleen, is on her way to meet her husband-to-be when her train is held up by an infamous gang of robbers.

I don’t want to spoil the story for you…
