A unique love letter from the author to her Gold Rush home town of Paradise, California -- the town lost in the devastating Camp Fire of 2018...

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A rebellious artist becomes a Gold Rush mail-order bride, but when fate makes her a widow, she's tempted by a fierce native in whose arms she discovers a forbidden love.

Mathilda Hardwicke, a rebellious artist rejected by her family and New York society, heads west to Gold Rush California to make a new life for herself as a mail-order bride. When fate leaves her at the altar in Paradise Bar–a ramshackle gold camp full of ragtag miners–she's sure she's leaped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

But unbeknownst to Mattie, she has a protector. Sakote, a fierce Konkow warrior, is bound by honor to watch over the white woman. And though his tribe is threatened by the encroaching miners, he's strangely drawn to Mattie, who delights in making pictures of him and whose destiny seems entwined with his.

When a tragedy at the camp forces Sakote to steal Mattie away, she finds herself in an unfamiliar Paradise of savage wonder, and she soon discovers a forbidden love more precious than gold.

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A lovely lady with a secret proves a welcome but dangerous distraction for a mercenary bent on hunting down the mysterious outlaw known as the Shadow.

Miriel of Rivenloch may not have the killer instincts of her older sisters, but she’s keeping a dangerous secret. She knows more than she’s letting on about the mysterious Shadow, the forest outlaw who robs from the rich and gives to the poor. And when devil-may-care mercenary Sir Rand la Nuit, hot on the trail of The Shadow, claims to be in love with Miriel, she knows he’s hiding something, too. It’s a battle of wits as they race to uncover each other’s secrets before their make-believe romance takes on a life of its own.

Helena of Rivenloch has fire in her heart and battle in her blood, and she’s desperate to save her youngest sister from a fate worse than death...marriage. When Helena attempts and fails to slay the bridegroom, she does the next best thing...abducts his right-hand man, the witty and dashing Sir Colin du Lac, and demands her sister as ransom.

What happens when the runaway bride he's kidnapped doesn't want to be ransomed?

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A half-native's plans for vengeance backfire when he falls in love with the woman he kidnaps, who finds being stolen by a handsome savage a breathtaking adventure. A posse may be hot on the trail, but she's not so sure she wants to be rescued.

Half-native twin Chase Wolf has returned to the town of Paradise to take revenge on the rancher who enslaved his grandmother and sent his kin to a reservation. But when Claire Parker, the rancher's beautiful daughter, gets in his way, he ends up taking her hostage instead. The spirited young lady with a taste for dime novels turns out to be more than he bargains for, especially when she starts getting under his skin. Deciding he hasn't the will to make her pay for the sins of her father, he vows to give her back.

Intrepid Claire feels like she's fallen into one of her Wild West adventures. By the time she begins to tame the scowling savage who's abducted her, she realizes he's found his way into her heart. Delivering her home is not going to be easy, especially when they're being pursued by her very determined father and when the last thing she wants to do is leave Chase.

Only the help of Chase's gunslinger twin and Claire's knowledge of derring-do can get them out of trouble and turn bitter vengeance into breathtaking romance.

A multicultural romance of the Old West!

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A half-native gambler on the run tangles with a spirited Italian beauty who takes his money and steals his heart, but the scheming young miss can't resist the handsome gunslinger, even when she learns he's a wanted man.

When ambitious Catalina di Ferrara turns her back on her noble Italian past to pursue her dream of designing dresses in America, she quickly learns that jobs in high fashion are scarce in the mountain town of Paradise, California. Her determination to succeed, however, earns her a position—in a less-than-upstanding establishment

For half-native twin Drew Hawk, life means a poker deck, a Colt 45, and the open road, until he crosses the wrong man and has to make a quick getaway. But he doesn't mind hiding out in Paradise, especially when he takes a gander at the beautiful and spirited Catalina working in the town's Parlor.

Cat manages to drain the handsome gambler's funds while never quite delivering the goods. But Drew is captivated by the clever lady, and it takes all of Cat's willpower to resist the gambling gunslinger's charm. When the law finally comes for him with guns blazing, will Cat risk her heart and prove to be Drew's Lady Luck?
