Redemption Mountain – Historical Western Romance Series

“A heartwarming, passionate story of loss, forgiveness, and redemption set in the untamed frontier during the tumultuous years following the Civil War. Ms. Davies’ engaging and complex characters draw you in from the start, creating an exciting introduction to this new historical western romance series.”

“Redemption’s Edge is a strong and engaging introduction to her new historical western romance series.”

Dax Pelletier is ready for a new life, far away from the one he left behind in Savannah following the South’s devastating defeat in the Civil War. The ex-Confederate general wants nothing more to do with commanding men and confronting the tough truths of leadership.

     Rachel Davenport possesses skills unlike those of her Boston socialite peers—skills honed as a nurse in field hospitals during the Civil War. Eschewing her northeastern suitors and changed by the carnage she’s seen, Rachel decides to accept her uncle’s invitation to assist him at his clinic in the dangerous and wild frontier of Montana.

     Now a Texas Ranger, a promise to a friend takes Dax and his brother, Luke, to the untamed territory of Montana. He’ll fulfill his oath and return to Austin, at least that’s what he believes.

     The small town of Splendor is what Rachel needs after life in a large city. In a few short months, she’s grown to love the people as well as the majestic beauty of the untamed frontier. She’s settled into a life unlike any she has ever thought possible.

     Thinking his battle days are over, he now faces dangers of a different kind—one by those from his past who seek vengeance, and another from Rachel, the woman who’s captured his heart.

And the troubles are mounting…

Wildfire Creek – Book Two

Redemption Mountain – Historical Western Romance Series

“A passionate story of rebuilding lives, working to find a place in the wild frontier, and building new lives in the years following the American Civil War. A rugged, heartwarming story of choices and love in the continuing saga of Redemption Mountain.”

Luke Pelletier is settling into his new life as a rancher and occasional Pinkerton Agent, leaving his past as an ex-Confederate major and Texas Ranger far behind. He wants nothing more than to work the ranch, charm the ladies, and live a life of carefree bachelorhood.

Ginny Sorensen has accepted her responsibility as the sole provider for herself and her younger sister. The desire to continue their journey to Oregon is crushed when the need for food and shelter keeps them in the growing frontier town of Splendor, Montana, forcing Ginny to accept work as a server in the local saloon.

     Luke has never met a woman as lovely and unspoiled as Ginny. He longs to know her, yet fears his wild ways and unsettled nature aren’t what she deserves. She’s a girl you marry, but that is nowhere in Luke’s plans.

     Complicating their tenuous friendship, a twist in circumstances forces Ginny closer to the man she most wants to avoid—the man who can destroy her dreams, and who’s captured her heart.

     Believing his bachelor status firm, Luke moves from danger to adventure, never dreaming each step he takes brings him closer to his true destiny and a life much different from what he imagines.

“The author has a talent for bringing the historical west to life, realistically and vividly, and doesn’t shy away from some of the harder aspects of frontier life, even though it’s fiction. Recommended to readers who like sweeping western historical romances that are grounded with memorable, likeable characters and a strong sense of place.”

Noah Brandt is a successful blacksmith and businessman in Splendor, Montana, with few ties to his past as an ex-Union Army major and sharpshooter. Quiet and hardworking, his biggest challenge is controlling his strong desire for a woman he believes is beyond his reach.

     Unexpected dangers, including a twist of fate for Abby, change both their lives, making the tentative steps they’ve taken to build a relationship a distant hope. As Noah battles his past as well as the threats to Abby, she fights for a future with the only man she will ever love.

 Deep River, Book Seven, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

“Every book of Shirleen's never fails to draw me in and make it impossible to put down until I devour it!” Avid Reader

Beauregard Davis, ex-Confederate Captain and bounty hunter, has put his past behind him to focus on his future. He’s a lawman with a purpose and a dream—do his job to the best of his abilities, and build a life with the woman he loves. Beau believes his life couldn’t be better…until the day she boards a stagecoach, leaving him behind.

Caroline Iverson has a dream she won’t deny. Traveling west, she expects to experience adventure. Instead, Caro finds a good man and unanticipated love. She never imagines the difficult decision to leave him behind would come back to haunt her.

After months of burying his pain in alcohol, Beau emerges stronger, determined to concentrate on a future without Caro. Doing his best to forget the past, he focuses his energy on work and preparing to build a home.

He never expected her to return, looking to recapture the love the two once shared.

Adding to Beau’s concerns, two threats hang over him—outlaws have targeted his town, and he’s being tracked by unidentified foes.

Keeping the town, Caro, and himself safe are his main priorities. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect them. Guarding his heart is another matter.

How does a man ignore an all-consuming love without exposing himself to a threat worse than the physical dangers he already faces?

“A 5 star "can't put it down" novel that you hate to finish because you miss the characters. This is a series that is worth rereading.” An avid reader.

Dirk Masters, ex-Union Cavalry Captain, traveled hundreds of miles to put his past behind him. Finding Splendor and getting a job at Redemption’s Edge seems the perfect opportunity to start over. His new life is predictable and peaceful…until a feisty young woman creates chaos in his orderly existence.

Rosemary Thayer has overcome more than one obstacle to achieve her dream of becoming a nurse. After a rough start, the people of Redemption’s Edge have accepted her into their family—all except the rude and arrogant foreman who seems to enjoy making her life miserable. Soon, she’ll have earned enough to leave the ranch for a place of her own.

But trouble continues to plague Rosemary. The unwelcome news of an escaped convict threatens to stall her plans of an independent life.

After months of anticipating her departure, Dirk is given an assignment he doesn’t want, but can’t turn down. Guard Rosemary from not one, but two possible threats. Could his life get any more complicated?

The last person she wants disrupting her future is now a part of it—every day, morning and night.

Not only is the escaped convict certain to come calling, another danger is inching its way toward Splendor, threatening young women, and no one can identify the attacker.

Worse, Dirk is fighting not only the threats, but his own internal desire. They’re oil and water, meant to be as far apart as the Pacific from the Atlantic. So why does he crave her touch, seek any excuse to get close?

Alex's memories of Evelyn are of a pesky little girl, but he can't deny his growing feelings for the beautiful and spirited woman she is now.

***Content Warning: This book contains mild language, mild violence, and adult situations including physical intimacy, and is intended for adult readers. Heat level 2-3 (scale 0-5) PG13
If tragedy in an epilogue after the main story has concluded disturbs or upsets you, please do not read this book!
Teton Sunrise is the first book in a trilogy of books about life as it might have been for one family in the harsh wilderness at the base of the Teton Mountains long before the area was settled. Each book is a standalone, but they also build on each other. Events and characters in one book play a role in subsequent books. 
Teton Sunrise is a complete love story for the hero and heroine in this book, although we see them again in subsequent books. While the book is a romance, it is also a wilderness action and adventure novel, and I didn't want to sugar-coat reality. The life these characters led was not easy. It was harsh, and often brutal. The events that occur in the epilogue, which involve some of the supporting characters in this book,  are necessary for the continuation of this trilogy...
