Are you ready for your close-up, Sentinel Pass?
Change hits the sleepy, Black Hills town of Sentinel Pass like a tsunami from a blockbuster movie when Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom falls for the Pass’s favorite daughter, postmaster Libby McGannon. It’s only a matter of time until other locals' love stories, including the members of Libby’s Wine, Women and Words book club, get written into the script.
This contemporary western romance collection includes the first FOUR books in a TWELVE-book series set in the Black Hills, Malibu, LA, and Louisiana. In this small town, secrets, mystery, murder and revenge are more than plot points in a script, when love is at stake.
BLACK HILLS BABY
Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom needs money to get his late mother's homicidal bookie off his back. Black Hills postmaster Libby McGannon’s online “deal” sounds like a goldmine—exactly the kind of TV sitcom audiences love. Libby might be the ticket that pushes Coop back on top of the ratings, if he can keep from falling in love with her.
BLACK HILLS BILLIONAIRE
Success can hide a multitude of secrets, but when Hollywood's "wunderkind" producer/director Shane Reynard agrees to set his pal Cooper’s TV sitcom in the Black Hills, he knows he’s risking more than a boatload of money. He's risking a war with the brother he hates. What he didn't count on was making Jenna Murphy--his first love and biggest regret--a target.
BLACK HILLS BAD BOY
Look out, Sentinel Pass, Jack Treadwell's got a brand new Harley--and attitude. No more “Mr. Nice Guy.” He’s bad to the bone…sort of. Single mom Kat Petroski knows love-at-first-sight can’t be trusted, and happily-ever-after only exists in romance novels. She’s too busy—and too smart--to fall for a RUB--rich urban biker. Until she does.
BLACK HILLS BACHELOR
A miner and a movie star? Even Hollywood thinks pairing celebrity actress Morgana Carlyle with Sentinel Pass miner Mac McGannon is a bad idea. The only person who thinks it’s the best news ever is Mac’s young daughter, Megan, who insists Morgana Carlyle would make the perfect replacement mom. Even if Mac secretly agrees, it’s clear Morgana isn’t who she claims to be.

BLACK HILLS NATIVE SON
BLACK HILLS OUTCAST

A lucrative new job offer could pave the way to a more traditional life in Marietta, Montana, where his two best friends have fallen in love with the women of their dreams.

Suddenly, that happily-ever-after stuff Flynn and Tucker have been raving about looks within reach.
The first fall is always the hardest.
Nikki Magnesson Richards has loved Justin Oberman most of her life. First, from the safety of her brothers’ old tree house. Later, with unrequited teen-age angst. Her poorly thought out attempt to get him to notice her cost them both dearly. Now, a dozen years later, her fairy godfather boss has orchestrated the most romantic meeting possible–the Big Sky Mavericks Masked Ball for Charity. A kiss at midnight with her very own Prince Charming isn’t too much to ask, is it? But what are two star-crossed lovers supposed to do when one kiss isn’t enough?

And even though that nasty scandal in Helena might have knocked him down a notch or two in the polls, what kind of a fool would trade access to the halls of power in Helena and a Harvard law degree for a ranch in western Montana? Possibly one whose new neighbor, Serena James–the woman the guys at Grey’s Saloon call “…the Red Hot Llama Mama”–makes him start to think about what he wants out of life, instead of what’s expected of him.
Serena James knows trouble when it hops her fence–
Moving to Montana and deleting her blog seemed like the perfect solution to her online stalker problem.

Serena’s barely moved in when Austen Zabrinski–the man her landlord called “my absentee ranch owner brother who lives and works in Helena”–hops the fence in need of a lift. Even at first glance, Serena can tell he’s nobody cowboy, but who’s to say that isn’t a good thing? A little tryst with her gorgeous, sexy, here-today-gone-to-Helena-tomorrow neighbor might be the perfect welcome to Montana.
