Can true love prevail against prejudice and deceit?

After a bitter betrayal, Dawson Blackhorse won't allow anyone to run roughshod over his heart again…especially not the woman he was once foolish enough to trust.

The rodeo circuit gave Dawson an escape after his racist boss ran him off. Hank Bartell made it clear no man who was part-Navajo, would buy his ranch or court his daughter. In a single moment, the man destroyed every one of Dawson's dreams.

But when the rodeo brings him to the tiny mountain town of Sawyer, Idaho, he comes face to face with everything he lost.


For nine years, Chloe Bartell hasn't been able to forget the man who abandoned her. Especially not when she looks into the eyes of their son.

The quiet life Chloe leads in the small town of Sawyer is shattered the day Dawson comes to compete in the rodeo. He's everything she remembers and more. Gorgeous. Muscular. Six foot and change of sexy cowboy. She watches helplessly as he comes face to face with the son he never knew he had. Dawson demands answers but Chloe is determined to keep her distance. 

When sparks fly, the fire they ignite threatens to burn down the walls she's built around her broken heart.

Will the pain and loss of their past drive them apart for good? Or can they forgive each other and build a new life, a life they always dreamed of…


Overdue for Love is the sixth novella in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

She’s just about given up on love for herself when Christian comes into her life. For one brief, shining moment, she thinks she might be able to have her own happily ever after. 

But nothing worth having comes easily…

The love he needs might be the last thing he expects…

Adam Whitaker has loved and lost more times than he can count. His father died before he was born, and then a tragic accident stole his high school sweetheart from him. But as the town’s vet and the director of an equine therapy camp, life is going great nowadays.

All right, fine – it’s plenty stressful, and at the end of the day, it’s also turning out to be plenty lonesome. 

And then, in strolls Kylie VanLueven, his very new and very pretty receptionist. The first time he met Kylie, she was just a kid. Now, she’s all grown up, with curves in all the right places. She's doing a good job at the clinic, but he won’t ever let it be more than that, despite the longing she stirs in him.

Besides, he’s sure that she’s hiding a secret…


The secret she carries won’t stay secret for long…

Kylie has come home to Sawyer on the heels of a bad break up. She kicked the abusive loser to the curb to protect herself and, more importantly, her unborn child. 

The job she takes at the vet clinic is just supposed to be a way to pay her bills. She never expects Adam Whitaker to be so handsome, so kind and so exasperating, too. The way he looks at her with his whiskey colored eyes? It makes her heart race, while his touch and gentle teasing make her yearn for more. 

But she never imagined the danger from her past would come looking for her and her unborn baby…

Forbidden love is never easy…

Elijah Morland only wants one thing. 

Okay, so maybe there are two items on the list. 

But more important than anything else is to spend more time with his daughter, Brooklyn, no matter how hard his ex-wife is fighting to keep them apart. Desperate, he takes a job at Brooklyn’s elementary school to be closer to her, where she can be his entire focus. 

Which was working just the way he’d planned…right up until he met her teacher, Miss Hannah Lambert. He sees the way she cares for Brooklyn and despite his best efforts, he starts to fall for her.

He can’t date his daughter’s teacher, though – it’s against the rules. Not to mention his ex-wife would have a field day in court if she found out.

But what if, for just one night, the rules didn’t apply?


She’s been hurt before…

It’s simple, really. She cannot, under any circumstances, fall for Brooklyn Morland’s father, even if Brooklyn is her not-so-secret favorite student. 

But he’s standing there in her classroom, looking at her like she’s not invisible. Like she’s not hidden beneath her coke-bottle glasses and oversized teacher cardigan.

The rules are clear: She cannot date a student’s father. She’d be risking her reputation, her career, her everything.

But sometimes, love is worth risking it all…

When Gage took over his grandparent’s bakery four years ago, love was the last thing on his mind. Despite the best efforts of his wanna-be-matchmaker sister, Emma, he was content to keep his nose to the grindstone, work his ass off, and make the bakery the success he knew it could be.

That all changed the day the neighbor from hell bought the shop next to his and began remodeling, destroying Gage’s well-ordered life in the process. It really was too bad she was so damn gorgeous...

Is she the answer to his dreams…or the person who will be forced to destroy them?

He’s a farmer, dammit, not a bookkeeper

When Stetson Miller inherits his father’s farm in Idaho, he’s too focused on crops and yields to pay attention to the financial side of things. The next thing he knows, he’s got a stack of unpaid bills, the bank is threatening to foreclose…and the auditor who’s come to examine his accounts is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

But she’s a city girl, just like the last one who left him at the altar. He'll guard his heart – but he can't help wanting her.


She’s checking him out…in more ways than one

Jennifer Kendall doesn’t mind a tough job, but the handsome Stetson is trouble of a different kind. When he isn’t making her mad, he’s filling her head with all sorts of forbidden fantasies.

The sparks between them fly even faster when the road washes out and Jennifer has to spend the night on the farm. But passion alone won’t pay the bills. Can Jennifer find a way for Stetson to save his farm?

And if she can’t, will he ever forgive her?

He's a man of few words…

Troy Horvath doesn't need much outta life. His fellow firefighters, a good beer, and...well, one date with the most gorgeous woman in town couldn't hurt, right?

Penny is beautiful, sassy, and everything he doesn't need.

But she's exactly who he wants.

He knows from the get-go she isn't planning on staying in Sawyer. She just isn't a small-town girl. With those heels and her striking red lipstick, she's a firecracker, and destined for so much more.

But maybe, just maybe, he can make all of her big-city dreams come true – if only she'll give him a chance...


She may've friend-zoned him…

And now Penny's realizing that may've been a mistake. Troy is hot. Like, firefighter-calendar hot. 

She swore when she came back to Sawyer to care for her mother, it would only be temporary. So…maybe a relationship with Troy could be temporary, too? 

Except deep down, Penny knows Troy wants so much more, and there's a chance she does, too.

He's hiding something, though – something big.

Can she be the one to finally get him to open up? 

And if she does, will their relationship survive the truth?

Cowboy Up

When Mike comes Anna’s rescue, she finds herself attracted to the tall, sexy cowboy more than she ever imagined. Problem is he’s a bull rider and a man facing that kind of danger is not for her.


Mike finds Anna intriguing. She’s nothing like the buckle bunnies who want nothing more than to snag a world champion bull rider. He doesn’t get into groupies and Anna is anything but. She’s a whole lot of woman rolled up into one sexy package. Mike knows he has some convincing to do but he’s determined to make Anna his own.


Rough Rider

Brianna Wilson inherits her estranged father’s ranch and has ideas on how to get the failing ranch back in the black, and dives in with plan in hand.


Joe never believed he could fall for a woman so fast until he finds Brianna sprawled in a mud puddle. Problem is she comes charging into her role as boss, making decisions that could end up with every ranch hand quitting.


Brianna and Joe butt heads but she soon comes to realize there’s no controlling an alpha male cowboy like Joe. She might be the boss, but in the bedroom he’s the one with the control.


Back in the Saddle

Susan Fairfield’s return from Dallas to the family ranch in Arizona is bittersweet. It’s been nine years since she’d fallen in love with Gray, when her dreams of happily ever afters had been crushed to dust.

Tennessee Rowland is a perfect 10. A beauty queen. But she's hiding secrets.

Levi has wanted Tenny for a long time – practically all his life. Too bad she's a few thousand miles out of his league. After all, she comes from a different world. She’s the favorite daughter of the wealthiest man in town. She’s the opposite of everything he is and everything he’s ever known. He’s never had money. He’s no one’s favorite. When he was just a kid, his mother ran off, leaving him with his father – a mean, bitter drunk with a vicious back-hand.

A guy like Levi should forget about the high-class blonde with the sassy smile. But Tenny has a secret.

And that secret changes everything.


Levi Scranton’s the strong and silent type, but he’s got trouble written all over him.

Tenny knows she should stay far away from Levi. His father is trash. His mother skipped town years ago. But Levi is all Tenny can think about. She’s always been the golden child, always done exactly what was expected. But the tall, quiet man with the warm, sultry gaze makes her feel safe for the first time in her life.

Everyone says he’s from the wrong side of the tracks. Too bad Levi’s the only man she wants. He might be scarred, and he might come from nothing, but he plays the starring role in her heated dreams.

They both have secrets. They both have scars.

In one stunning moment, when the past comes storming back, Levi and Tenny will have to choose between love...or betrayal.
