MEET LUKE and Evie, who get accidentally married. 

Mountie Luke Hunter is shocked when he stands in as a groom for a proxy wedding, and is accidentally married to Evie Summerville. It was only supposed to be a formality for the paperwork while her real fiancé satisfies his gold-fever out of town. But when the ailing judge writes the wrong names on the marriage certificate, Luke and Evie are legally bound. To top it off, the judge was suffering from measles, and now the entire wedding party is quarantined.

Luke is stuck with Evie. She’s fuming at the situation, too. They desperately try to undo the damage, but can’t agree on how. Luke doesn’t even know this woman, but Evie’s turning out to be fiercely independent, and their heated arguments confirm his opinion that he should remain a bachelor. But the moonlit nights they spend together awaken his secret desires and drive him to distraction.

Evie can’t believe she’s trapped in close quarters with the wrong groom. Luke may be powerful and handsome, but he’s not the man she wants. The trouble is, the more she gets to know him, the more she’s surprised by his determination to defend her and the town from unseen dangers. Evie and Luke both want to quickly end this farce of a marriage. Then why, when she’s in his protective arms, do his kisses make her heart ache for more?

MEET Klondike Lily, handcuffed and on the run with the frustrating man from her past, DYLAN, now a Mountie and her pretend husband. 

Rugged Mountie Dylan Wayburn goes undercover as a drifter in a stagecoach and is seated across from a gorgeous redhead from his past, Lily Cromwell. She doesn’t recognize him at first, but she was once his family servant. My, how her fortunes have turned—she’s struck gold and is now Klondike Lily, the richest woman in town. She’s too fancy for the likes of him now, and could blow his cover sky-high.

All the gold in the world can’t help Lily find her missing sister. She dreams of a reunion while trying to ignore the obnoxious drifter whose knees keep accidentally brushing hers in the stagecoach. When they’re ambushed by a notorious gang after Lily’s fortune, Dylan defends her. They escape while shackled to each other in chains. To find the criminals undercover, they pretend to be married.

A pretend lover is not what Dylan had in mind, especially to the uncompromising Lily who won’t let him forget his past mistakes, and stirs the heated passion in his soul.

WESTON is a novella, shorter than a full-length novel.


MEET WESTON, a Mountie who never thought he would marry, much less be forced to the altar with a gun to his back. 

Mountie Weston Williams vows to focus on his duties as a new police recruit, and steer clear of Milly Thornbottom. Milly and her troublesome family created headaches for Weston when they were quarantined together last summer during a scare of measles. Now at the Spring Fever Ball, Weston is stunned to see that the shy young woman who had a crush on him is gone. In her place is the grown-up Milly, no longer awkward but with a confidence he finds riveting.

When Weston asks Milly to dance, it leads to a heated kiss and passionate embrace, witnessed by her father. Before the night is over, Weston is marched to the altar at gunpoint to protect Milly’s honor.

Humiliated, angry at the disastrous wedding and each other, Milly and Weston plunge into a marriage neither is prepared for. Weston can’t believe that he still has to deal with her interfering family. He’s drawn to his lovely new wife in moments when he least expects it, and wonders if he can make her happy under these wretched circumstances. Milly questions if she can trust her new husband, not only when he kisses her at night, but in the new unspoken bonds she’s desperately hoping will develop into love.

She discovers that he’s not who he appears to be either, and that they’re both in danger. The tables turn again when Autumn abducts him and now he’s forced to do what she wants. Which is return her to her home. Isn’t it? Or would Autumn rather spend more time with the tall, dark stranger who’s letting down his guard and stealing his way into her heart?

MEET BRANT, a reluctant bodyguard to Victoria, a nurse he once betrayed and now must protect. 

Bodyguard and bounty hunter Brant MacQuaid has secret reasons of his own for taking the challenging Victoria Windhaven on a dangerous medical mission through Alaskan wilderness. He used to know the exasperating woman, but after leaving the lower states, he thought he left her and her demanding family behind.

Victoria can’t forgive him for deserting her sister at the altar. What kind of man does that? Certainly not one Victoria could ever trust. Brant should keep to himself and do the job he’s been hired for—protecting her and a young medical student from threats that intensify at every turn.

Except the confined stagecoach, and the forced nights that Brant and Victoria spend together, ignite their heated emotion. Their yearning for each other’s touch threatens to explode….

Alaska and the Yukon, 1898 

MEET COLT, the strong and silent Mountie who’s forced to escort the beautiful, brainy and talkative Elizabeth through the northern wilderness. 

Mountie Colt Hunter is on a dangerous undercover mission with his team of Mounties, traveling to Alaska and the Yukon, and the last thing he wants is the delicate Elizabeth Langley joining them. Frustrated at being forced to escort her, Colt orders Elizabeth to go in disguise too—as his make-believe sister.

He wants Elizabeth to understand that she needs to follow his orders and step in line with his men. How else will they survive the dangers? And how will Colt survive the emotional battle dueling inside his heart, between duty and passion, every time he looks at her?

Elizabeth thinks that pretending to be his sister is ridiculous. But she can fake it as well as he can. She’s not the delicate city woman that Colt believes. Elizabeth is a hardworking doctor, trying to make it to the Yukon in search of answers to a troubling family secret and to meet with her grandfather. When they get to the Klondike, she’ll finally be free of Colt’s bossy attitude, free of his close proximity and free of the way he makes her heart race….
