About Lily Graison

Lily Graison is a USA TODAY bestselling author of historical western romances. Her Willow Creek Series introduced readers to a small Montana town where the west is wild and the cowboys are wilder. Lily also dabbles in contemporary and paranormal romance when the mood strikes and all of her stories range from sweet to spicy with strong female leads and heroes who tend to always get what they want. She lives in Hickory, North Carolina and on occasion can be found at her sewing machine creating 1800’s period clothing or participating in civil war reenactments and area living history events. When not portraying a southern belle, you can find her at a nearby store feeding her obsession for all things resembling office supplies.

New Release Coming Soon!!

Even though I have a full schedule this year, I can’t help but want to check back in on older characters. One such character is Grace Samuels. We heard a bit about her in Wild Horses and there was something tragic about her Happily Ever After and I needed to change that — So I did. You can catch up with her and Rafe on Valentine’s Day but for now, here’s a small sneak peek.   Life as a mail-order bride has turned out to be everything Grace Samuels thought it would be but after 13 years, her dreams of being a mother are still not fulfilled.

Willow Creek Make-Over

  Some of you may have seen the new covers I’m having made for the Willow Creek series and for those who haven’t, surprise! The series is getting a facelift and I’m still excited every time I see a new cover. The Lawman came out way back in November 2011. Hard to beleive its been seven years since I took a notion to write a book in a genre I loved to read. I had no clue if I would be sucessful writing them and at the time, I didn’t really care. I just enjoyed the genre and took a leap. And here we are, eight novels later.  The rebrand started with Nightingale. I hired a cover artist to make the cover for me as they were time consuming for me to do and–I’m a writer, not a cover artist. When I received the cover, I loved it so much … Continue reading

There was … Continue reading

Turning to her, he offered her a spoonful. “Taste it and tell me if you like it.” Holding the spoon to her lips, she opened her mouth. Mere inches separated him from her and she moaned at the texture of the meat. “Delicious.” The savoriness ignited her hunger as she licked her lips and … Continue reading
