I don’t remember when my love for romance novels came about but it’s a passion I’ll not outgrow. The thrill of that first meeting, that first kiss, is what holds me spellbound. Inside the pages of a book I can travel to distant lands, be swept off my feet by heroes so daring and gallant I never want the stories to end. The excitement and adventure I find holds me captive and breathlessly wanting more. It’s also what drives me to write.
The world is full of disappointment but there’s no reason we can’t escape it for a little while. I hope that’s what my books are for you. A small moment of pleasure that will give you time away from the normal and let you escape into a fantasy. A world where the mundane is magnificent and the heroes and heroines we all crave are but a page turn away.
Hiding from a future she doesn’t want…
When the new blacksmith in town announces they are to be married, Alexandra Avery does what any bride with cold feet would do. She disobeys her father, dresses in mens clothing, and sneaks away with the cattle drive he just sent east to avoid the inevitable. Little does she know, Jesse Samuels, the annoying boy who made her childhood nearly unbearable is the new trail boss and calling the shots. How will she ever survive being bossed around by him for the next two months?
Handed what he’s coveted the most…
Entrusted with over seeing a cattle drive for the Avery Ranch is exactly what Jesse Samuels needed, especially after hearing Alexandra Avery, the girl he spent the last ten years of his life planning a future with is now engaged. He regrets not staying and fighting for her until he finds her stowed away pretending to be one of the crew. When the other cowboys realize there’s a woman amongst them, his protective instincts kick in.

Alexandra and Jesse have always had a love-hate relationship but when the dangers of the open trail take a turn that could cost them their lives, they have to put aside their differences to keep everyone safe.
