Worth the Wait if finally here!!

Welcome back to End of the Line!

Hank is ready to set the date. Julie likes the way things are. Can love overcome the pain of the past and prove that it’s all been…worth the wait?

Julie and her sons moved to End of the Line after a dangerous encounter with her abusive husband led to a rescue by her brother, Clay and an old friend, Hank. Over time, her relationship with Hank takes a turn and when he unexpectedly proposes, she is forced to face the battle between her heart and her newfound freedom.

Hank hadn’t seen the woman he held a secret crush on in years, but when her brother asks his help in a dangerous hostage stand-off, he is there in a heartbeat, even taking a bullet to protect Julie and her kids. But will these rekindled feelings Hank has be enough to hold against the time that Julie needs to adjust to her new life and, will Hank decide that it’s worth the wait?

Hank and Julie's story is fraught with tension, small town drama, danger, adventure, and hope...

Coming 2018
“Too soon?” By the look on Julie’s started face, Hank Richardson figured he’d damn well jumped the gun. Then again, to his defense, in the last year and a half since Julie and her two boys had come to live at the Last Hope Ranch, he’d thought things had progressed to where the idea seemed approachable.
Apparently, not as much as he’d hoped.
He felt bad. There was nowhere—short of a parachute—that the poor woman could go. He’d taken her up in his plane, of all things, thinking that a pass over the beautiful Crazy Mountains against a perfect late summer sunset would be the perfect setting to pop the question. So much for perfect.
Hank withdrew the small blue velvet box that held the pear-shaped two caret Tiffany diamond inside. His idea of a romantic marriage proposal disappearing as quickly as the orange sun on the horizon.
“No. I’m sorry,” she stammered, holding her hand to her heart. She looked like she might be ill.  I just…I wasn’t--”
“Say no more,” he said, pocketing the ring in his denim shirt pocket.
She reached over and touched his forearm. “Hank, I’m flattered—speechless, in fact. It’s just…”
“I’m moving too fast, right?” God, he’d have married her a week after her divorce from that psychotic excuse of husband. He’d waited, deciding it was worth the wait. Then again, maybe his sister, Caroline had been right when she accused him of having ‘white knight’ syndrome.
“Hank,” Julie said softly. “You know how much I care about you. You’ve been so good to me and the boys since we moved here.”
He raised his brow. That much was true. He’d flown her brother Clay Saunders to California and had wound up taking a bullet in the shoulder during the daring rescue wherein her husband had been holding her and their sons’ hostage in some domestic dispute.
“You made all the arrangements for us to move here--you and Clay.” She sighed. “And I’m forever grateful.”
Grateful? Oh hell, he’d really gotten it wrong. He tossed her a quick 
glance, not wanting to let her see his disappointment. Hank had secretly fallen in love with her the first time they’d met in college.

If you purchase a copy, PM me and I will send you an autographed bookplate to put inside as well as a special upcoming freebie!


A young war widow, a secret confession from the soldier chosen to return her deceased husbands belongings, and a forbidden kiss. Genevieve Walters has spent the last dozen years delving into her matchmaking mission work to quell the unsettled emotions the solider stirred within her. But a new mission will take her on a journey to Noelle, Colorado, where the magic of the season and fate will challenge her to face the past in the form of a mysterious mountain man. When his identity is revealed will she consider him her perfect match?

Making the promise to his Captain to return both his watch and letters to his wife should the unthinkable happen, wasn’t supposed to occur. Just like his midnight confession and the kiss he’d shared with the new widow that fateful night ten years ago. Zeke Kinnsion has survived the worst that life has thrown at him and has since found his peace as a fur trapper in mountains of Noelle. But fate is about to rattle his life when a familiar matchmaker breezes into town determined to marry off her twelve mail-order brides. Suddenly facing down a four-hundred-pound bear pales in comparison of once again facing the only woman he’s ever loved.
