19th century widow, Emily Hawkins, is raising her sister’s orphaned children and trying to save their farm, the only home the two kids have ever known, from a greedy banker who wants more than just a mortgage payment. She has until fall to raise a crop, harvest it, sell it, and pay off the loan to get the lecherous man off her back.
21st century con man Jack McCain vowed never to work a day in his life. And he was smart enough, smooth enough, and charming enough, to make plenty of money without having having to. Right up until he conned the wrong people and wound up running for his life through the woods near his childhood home.
In those very same woods, there’s said to be a magic wishing well that appears only when needed and only to those deserving of its powers. And somehow, when Jack dives for cover from the bullets flying after him, he lands in Emily’s time.
Is Emily the answer to Jack’s wish for a second chance to be an honest man?
Or is he the answer to her wish for a partner to help her save the farm and raise the children. And, dare she hope, for a man worth loving?
A heartwarming, tear-inducing, holiday miracle kind of story you’ll never forget...
All Tyler wants for Christmas is a Mommy.
Not to walk without his crutches, or to skip his next surgery. Just a mommy.
His father, Chicago Cop Jimmy Corona is determined to find him one in his hometown of Big Falls Oklahoma. But trouble follows him there, trouble that could get them both killed.
Once shy and awkward, Kara Brand has blossomed into a graceful beauty with the biggest heart in the state of Oklahoma. Jimmy thinks she’s the perfect mommy-candidate, and she falls in love with little Ty at first sight.
Jimmy plans to win her and wed her, not to love her. But he never intended for her to get caught in between a murderous criminal and his little boy.
When strange and exotic little Brand sister, Selene, is out by the falls, dancing half naked with her fellow rebellious tree worshipping types, a stranger stumbles out of the woods and falls at her feet. He’s been stabbed. And when he opens his eyes, all he sees is a topless wood-nymph holding a dagger. When she bends close and asks his name, he realizes that he doesn’t know the answer.
Someone is trying to kill Cory Falconer because he knows something he can’t remember. And the only person on his side is a witchy little vegetarian who’s running away for her own reasons.
Sensual romance. Approximately 71,000 words
