The Damsel's Intent
Can Nicole learn to be enough of a lady to snag the handsome rancher?
Nicole Waterby heads down the mountain to fetch herself a husband, not realizing women don’t wear trousers or carry a gun. She has a lot to learn. Rancher Shane Keegan has drifted from one location to another to find a place to belong. When Nicole crosses his path, he wonders if he can have love, but he soon realizes she’s destined for someone better than a saddle tramp. Will love stand a chance while both Nicole and Shane try to be people they’re not?
Scandalous news just keeps begging to be told, and taming her tongue seems an insurmountable task.
Katelyn Kavanagh’s mother dreamed her daughter would one day escape the oppressive environment of their Upstate New York farm for service in the enchanting Thousand Islands, home to Gilded Age millionaires. But when her wish comes true, Katelyn finds herself in the service of none other than the famous George Pullman, and the transition proves anything but easy.
Thomas O’Neill, brother of her best friend, is all grown up and also working on Pullman Island. Despite Thomas’ efforts to help the irresistible Katelyn adjust to the intricacies of her new world, she just can’t seem to tame her gossiping tongue—even when the information she’s privy to could endanger her job, the 1872 re-election of Pullman guest President Ulysses S. Grant, and the love of the man of her dreams.
Spies & Sweethearts
A secret mission. A fake bride. A run for their lives.
According to the OSS training manual, the life expectancy of a radio operator in Nazi-occupied France is six weeks. Partnered with one of the agency’s top spies, Gerard Lucas, newly-minted agent Emily Strealer plans to beat those odds. Then their cover is blown and all bets are off. The border to neutral Switzerland is three hundred miles away-a long way to run with SS soldiers on their heels.
Will Emily and Gerard survive the journey and get home?
And what about their hearts? Nothing in the manual prepared them for falling in love.
A prostitute’s daughter, an outlaw’s brother, and a stagecoach robbery—can anything good come out of Deadwood?
Kate Benton, daughter of a saloon floozy, runs away, straight into the arms of Tom McBride, fleeing from his outlaw brother’s past. Can these two, damaged by life experiences, tear down the walls that separate them with God’s help? Or are they destined to remain alone forever?
With God all things are possible.
But can lost love be found again or two wounded hearts knitted together?
Young love, sweeter than honey, is separated by a natural disaster and turns bitter. After five years, a miracle reunites Samantha Adams and Silas Mercier, but it seems it’s too late. How will love prevail? Can it ever fail? With perseverance and God’s help—throw in a little jealousy—dreams may come true.
Waltz with Destiny
When war comes to America, Esther questions whether she has the grit to carry on the McConnell legacy.
Romance reverses into a battle for survival—and an unforeseeable ending. Ruby McConnell Meir leaves Kentucky and returns to Detroit with her daughter, Esther, and son, William.

The realities of World War II sudden slam America’s shorelines and Eric comes face to face with death when he’s drafted into the Army and shipped to fight in Italy.
She needs a place to hide—he needs a woman’s touch
Rand Stafford isn't looking for true love. He'd ridden that trail until his fiancée left him with a shattered heart. What he needs now is a wife to help care for his orphan nieces. Desperate, he sends an advertisement and hopes for the best.
Fleeing her employer’s unlawful acts, a newspaper advertisement reads like a refuge to Carly Blair. Hiding herself on a cattle ranch in Kansas is her best shot for freedom.
But its sanctuary comes with—a husband. While marrying a man she doesn't love means sacrificing her dreams, it's better than being caught by the law.
Or is it?
