From bestselling author Sharon Sala comes the trilogy following Leticia Murphy on her adventures that take her from the Kansas Territories to Denver City, and from reluctant saloon girl to happily married woman.
Whippoorwill: Leticia Murphy never planned on becoming a saloon girl. But the Kansas Territories are a difficult place, and Lettie, orphaned at the age of twelve, had to do whatever it took to survive. When she comes to the rough-and-tumble town of Lizard Flats, she wants nothing more than a second chance—although she knows the likelihood of getting one is slim. Until, that is, a stranger comes to Lizard Flats, a preacher from the East, arriving to perform a wedding. But the man of God isn't quite as holy as he seems. And when he turns up dead in Lettie's bed, it sets off a chain of events nobody could have predicted that will ultimately lead to change not just for Lizard Flats, but for Lettie herself.
The Amen Trail: After the death of one of her clients in embarrassing circumstances, frontier saloon girl Leticia Murphy flees with erstwhile town drunk and handyman Eulis Potter. Eager to forget her colorful past and find redemption, Lettie is determined to turn over a new leaf, and Eulis is happy to follow her. The couple impersonates a preacher and his wife on the road from the Kansas Territories to Colorado. Along their journey, they marry couples, baptize babies, and perform burials. They manage to fool most people they meet into seeing them as upright Christians, but that doesn't stop them from getting into trouble, and falling in love. But when their true identities are discovered, Letty and Eulis must rely on each other, and the frontier toughness they've both had to develop in their previous lives to survive.
The Hen House: Once a frontier saloon girl, Leticia Murphy Potter is now happily married, and her husband, Eulis, couldn't be more overjoyed to call her his wife. The happy couple have become upstanding citizens of Denver City, and have just begun to build a home there together. But Letty's trials and tribulations aren't over, and trouble is brewing just over the horizon. Just when she believes her life couldn't possibly get better, it begins to get worse. Soon Letty and Eulis must work together to overcome new threats—both to their well-being and to their relationship.

MEET JAMES, a tough Mountie who’s protecting a little baby during the Christmas season, and Maggie, a onetime love who’s determined to help.


On a dangerously snowy December evening, Mountie James Fielder risks his life to bring a lost baby to Maggie Greerson’s doorstep. For James, seeing Maggie again is a heartache and raw reminder of their past. She’s now a captivating woman as the owner of a spice shop and an independent young widow, and likely doesn’t reminisce much about him.


Maggie is busy preparing for the Christmas rush with a store full of shoppers and can’t believe the hardened man that the town considers a “loner” is cradling a little babe in his powerful arms. Reunited while they race through the Yukon to find the rightful parents, Maggie tries to keep her distance from James. She wonders about second chances, but is painfully aware that he walked away from her once and can’t be trusted to stay this time. Although his fiery kisses and intimate embrace may be too powerful to resist.


James fears that he’ll be unable to keep Maggie happy as he fights her beautiful temptation.... (A steamy western love story.)


(Please note: JAMES is a novella, shorter than a full-length novel.)

When the West was wild
And man's law favored the few
These extraordinary women could be found...
...in the heart of an outlaw.

He may be a wanted man, but all outlaw Jack Bowdre ever desired was a second chance. Now he's on his way to jail, completely unaware that his unexpected—and unexpectedly beautiful—traveling companion is none other than Nora Kane...his mail order bride.

It's too bad Nora doesn't know Jack is her groom-to-be. All she sees is a scoundrel. But when their stagecoach crashes and the truth comes spilling out, they're suddenly left to fend for themselves—and each other. The longer they're together, the stronger their feelings grow. Hounded by desperate men bent on doing them harm, Nora and Jack will do whatever it takes to find their happily ever after...but first, they'll have to shake the devil from their trail.
