The handsome stranger Randee Ellis hires might shield her from the dark plot against her Montana ranch, but can he protect her heart from his past?
A Rising Wind
Ripped from the rugged yet majestic Madison Valley, the Triple Creek ranch is a tribute to both the Ellis family’s dreams and the beauty of the land. It is everything to thirty-year-old Randee, even more important than children of her own. But while she and her uncle have managed the work since her parents’ death, this year it will be harder. Almost all the nearby ranches have been compromised, and a sinister plot is on the rise.
She hires the stranger against her better judgment. There’s no question he’s the handsomest would-be cowhand that ever lived, but Chase Gregory is a city slicker—and she’s been fooled before. No matter how much he makes her long for things she thought forever abandoned, until Chase admits who and what he is, and what he’s running from, there’s no way she can trust him…let alone love him, as her soul demands. A mixture of danger, despair and desire lurks behind those blue eyes and that winning smile, and Randee has yet to learn which way the storm will break.

When I was in my early twenties I noticed that my grandmother spent her spare time reading romance novels, I asked her why she had chosen the genre. She explained that they allowed her to fall in love with handsome men without pissing grandpa off.
I read my first romance novel that year and have been reading ever since. During my grandmother’s last illness, I read to her and in those months I decided to write romances. I thought if I can help someone escape for a couple of hours from the pain or boredom in their lives, or help them see and feel a world of love and beauty that would be a worthwhile contribution to humanity.
My message in each of my books is hope. Hope that there’s someone just right for each of us. Hope that even in our darkest hour there is light just around the corner. And hope that even if life circumstances keep you from a great relationship, you can dream and love and smile.
