Danielle Grant left America to find success abroad and never dreamed she’d find love and have a child along the way. But tragedy left her single, alone, and wounded in ways she didn’t even fully understand. Struggling to find happiness, she finally discovered it in the arms of Lars, and for a while all seemed well. When, Lars tells her he cannot be with her any longer, Danielle is at a crossroads. Her fear over him dying in his high-risk sports like Andre before him, is consuming the love they have for one another. She must confront the past, work through her grief and help herself in a way he cannot. Devastated, Danielle accepts his decision, and is determined to forge a new and independent life, without relying upon a man for anything. And so begins her journey of self-reflection, where she pushes against her own fears and vulnerabilities, immerses herself in her career and makes unexpected connections with several men she meets. But Danielle comes to believe that time is precious and true love is forever, eventually realizing she needs Lars, and what they have together is meant to be.

Made for Me is the first of a three-book series focused on the journey of Danielle Grant, a talented and successful gold trader who lost her mother in college and since graduate school has done little more than work, take care of her ailing father and go on periodic dates with divorced, older men who are as uninterested in a relationship as she is.Her life takes a dramatic turn when she takes a job in Zurich and meets Lars Egle, a striking, intense and single professional in her new company. He reiterates key sections of the multi-page contract Danielle has signed regarding restrictions against becoming involved with clients. Confident she can maintain a high, thick barrier against romantic distractions, Danielle agrees to go out dancing with her friends and the young owner of a yacht company, Andre Mettler. His reserved personality intrigues her more than any older man ever had, giving her months of site-seeing excursions and late night passion. Her new world of romance in a foreign country is disrupted when she learns Andre presents conflicts with her employment. Only then does she realize her feelings for him run much deeper than she ever thought-or expected. Torn between the terms of her employment contract and fulfilling her commitment, Danielle walks away from the arms of one man, unknowingly into the arms of another who loves her just as deeply. Just when she is prepared to take the ultimate step in her new relationship, her life is upended in a circumstance so unexpected, full of both loss but new life, that she is forced to be grateful she gave up the short, safer path of immediate gratification for the harder road that provides long-term happiness and fulfillment.
Captured in Surrender

Bounty Hunter Naya Blade never thought she'd step foot in Surrender, Montana again. Especially since there was a warrant out for her arrest. But when her skip ends up in the normally peaceful town, she has no choice but to go after him to claim her reward. Even at the cost of running into the cop that makes her blood run hot and her sense of self-preservation run cold.

Deputy Lane Greyson wants to see Naya in handcuffs, but he'd much prefer them attached to his bed instead of in a cold jail cell. She drove him crazy once before and then drove right out of town, leaving havoc in her wake. He's determined to help her hunt down the bad guy so he can claim his own bounty—her.

The Promise of Surrender

Mia Russo spent ten years working undercover, entrenched in the dregs of society before handing in her shield. Opening her own pawn shop is a piece of cake in comparison. All she needs is the bad attitude she developed on the streets and the shotgun under her counter to keep law and order. Until the day Zeke McBride walks into her shop. 

Zeke knows Mia has every right not to trust him. He was the one who chose the next op instead of her. And all he can hope is that somewhere under the snarl and cynicism is a woman who can forgive. Because whether she trusts him or not, they're going to have to work together to bring down the gang that's decided Mia is their next target. 

Sweet Surrender

It’s been twelve years since Liza Carmichael stepped foot in Surrender, but after her great aunt’s death she has no choice but to return and settle her estate. Which includes the corner bakery that’s been a staple in Surrender for more than fifty years.

After twenty-five years on the job, Lieutenant Grant Boone finds himself at loose ends now that he’s retired. He’s gotten a number of job offers—one from MacKenzie Security—but he's burned out and jaded, and the last thing he wants to do is carry the burden of another badge and weapon. He almost turns down the invitation from his good friend Cooper MacKenzie to stay as their guest for a few weeks while he’s deciding what to do with the rest of his life. But he packs his bag and heads to Surrender anyway.

The only thing Boone knows is that his future plans don’t include Liza Carmichael. She’s bossy, temperamental, and the confections she bakes are sweet enough to tempt a saint. Thank God he’s never pretended to be one. But after he gets one taste of Liza and things start heating up in the kitchen, he realizes how delicious new beginnings can be.

Sue Kim’s story is one of tragedy, imagination, luck, perseverance and the hand of God as she went from a life of wealth and privilege to displaced refugee, immigrant then super stardom as the first wave of Korean’s in American. Along the way, Sue broke racial barriers on every major stage in America, from New York to Los Angeles, pitched the first baseball at a MLB opener, was feted by Elvis, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, but ultimately met and married a New Yorker, who became the longest running casino boss in America. Together, they reigned over Las Vegas at the height of its glamour, eventually having children and conquering the demons that come with decades of stardom. Sue’s story is truly the greatest American story never told.


SJ Choi, Producer, the Dimo Kim Musical Theatre Company, Broadway

"I have always been fascinated by the untold stories of Asian entertainers who overcame difficulties and cultural differences to make their name in Hollywood - e.g. Anna May Wong, Sessue Hayakawa, Johnny Yune, Philip Ahn, etc. Despite the fact the Kim Sisters were the first and the most successful Korean singers to ever perform in the U. S., over the years they have mostly been forgotten by Americans and Koreans alike, and I always wanted to learn more about them. I'm deeply impressed by not only the wonderful storytelling of this book but also the comprehensiveness of the material. Most of the details in the book were unavailable through any other sources I could find in either Korean or English An eye opening read."


Chuck Pryor, Producer, the Joel Osteen Show

"The best movies... like the best books... and frankly, the best life comes from real, true, stories. These real, true, stories include everything from joy, heartbreak, tension, sadness, exuberance, conflict, impossible odds, defeat, overcoming, and a plethora of ups and down that can only be matched by the worlds most raucous roller coaster ride... it thrills you, it terrifies you, and at times you think it's going to kill you. That's real life... that's Sue Kim's real life.


I recently had the privilege of meeting her and her family... She is as kind as she is beautiful and I loved meeting her. Her husband gave me a copy of this book and I was captivated. Sarah Gerdes does a masterful job of telling The Sue Kim story, with all the ups, downs, heartache, joy, and everything in between do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. It truly is the greatest story NEVER told... until now."
