Shadows of the Mountain (Book 1)


Winner, Write Touch Readers' Award Contest, Best Romantic Suspense 2018

"A thrilling romantic western suspense, full of action, drama and of course, love!" Reader Views

A wary former SEAL is hired to protect the President’s daughter on a routine three-day horseback ride. But when they are attacked by ruthless assassins, he and his beautiful but suspicious trail guide must team up in order to protect their innocent charge. As they lead their pursuers on a dangerous decoy, they learn to lower their guards and trust each other. Can they survive long enough to have a chance at love, or will one of them be a necessary sacrifice? 


Along Came A Cowboy (Book 2)


Readers' Choice Award, Romantic Suspense 2019

A hot cowboy, a twisted killer, and one very resilient woman.

A burned-out rodeo champ vows to steer clear of female fans, especially artificial cowgirls with their bright lipstick and plastic smiles. The luxury ranch’s wilderness chase offers the perfect opportunity to escape. He doesn’t count on being asked to track an attractive woman, and certainly not one who has never dirtied her designer jeans. And while her surprising pluck might prove enough to capture his heart, the Montana backwoods conceals many dangerous predators… Not all of them are four-legged.

I only wanted a cup of coffee. Alone. 

It was a simple request, right? Just stroll into the coffee shop on the corner, grab my usual cup of liquid nitrogen, and walk back out. 

All while minding my own business. 

But I had to walk in at that exact moment. Not ten minutes earlier. Not ten minutes later. Precisely when Savannah Fields needed someone to help her. When no one except me had the courage to stand up for her. 

After the incident, she looked at me like I was her hero. 

But I'm no hero. 

I don't even know who or what I am anymore. 

Who is Nick Tucker? A DEA agent? A criminal? Both? Neither? 

The lines I crossed while undercover blurred my staunch sense of morality. 

Then the auburn-haired beauty showed up at my apartment, begging for my help. I couldn't turn her away. 

The more I lost myself in her, the more I found myself again. 

Or so I thought. 

Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day. 

There's a fine line between right and wrong, love and hate, heaven and hell.

"What a fantastic book! I absolutely adored Megan & Scott and thought that their love story played in perfectly with the mystery and intrigue in this book.
