Healing Woman of the Red Rocks is a sweet romance, but also a tale of adventure with cameo appearances by real-life Old West outlaws and good guys. Some of the characters making appearances are well known, others, not so much. It was fun imagining conversations historical personages would have had with my make-believe characters. However, this story is not intended to be a history lesson. It has been written solely for entertainment. There is also an element of fantasy to the story in that injured and sick animals are drawn to the healing woman.
And yes, the "red rocks" referred to in this tale is Sedona, Arizona. However, the time frame is before Sedona was settled and named.
At first, Maximilian Rutherford III is stunned, and then he's angry. Six months living in the Arizona desert isn't his lifestyle. However, the mandate issued by Max I, his grandfather, is clear--manage a trailer and RV Park or lose his inheritance. Max III, hotshot corporate exec has managed billion dollar companies, but now he's supposed to oversee a trailer park!
Pilar Armstrong loves her home in the small community of Oasis located in beautiful Arizona. Sunrises and sunsets make for the beginnings and endings of perfect days. When the new park manager arrives she recognizes in him the same ambition as in her ex-husband and determines to avoid him at all costs. Her resolve fails, however, when he makes changes that affect her beloved neighbors. Maybe it's time to set "Ruthless Rutherford" straight.
Will Max and Pilar, opposite in every way, find that forever kind of love? The journey to that answer is endearing, funny, and surprising for both of them.
