Samantha Deveaux escaped a brush with drug addiction as a teen, only to wind up pregnant by her still dealing boyfriend at nineteen. Now she’s ready to launch her plan to achieve safety and security for herself and her Asperger's daughter, Audie. Step one? Achieve tenure in whatever town will hire her. The small town of Choteau, Montana fits the bill.


But Choteau may not be as easy to leave as Samantha is planning. A horse named Misty, a rancher named Jarod, and a community of people who are more than willing to reach out and help, challenge her assumptions about small-town living and what true safety really means.

Finding Home is a sweet story about a woman who needs to learn to trust again, set against the reality of small-town life in Montana. If you enjoy women’s fiction with strong characters and romantic elements, you’ll enjoy this book.

About the author

Real People * Real Problems * Real Love


Enjoy a short romance by Casey Dawes. Go to www.stories-about-love. com and click at the link at the top to find out how to get it for free.


Casey finds inspiration for romance in the everyday lives of real people across the diverse landscape of America. Faced with real problems, her characters still manage to make the changes they need to make to achieve real and ever-lasting love.


Her latest story, Keep Dancing, deals with a woman who has to deal with the onset of a disability who falls in love with a widower who buried his wife from cancer five years earlier. Set in small-town Montana where she lives, Keep Dancing is inspired by the courage of a good friend, as well as the inspirational story of "Taking on Parkinson's" by Dennis O'Donnell.


Casey's first five-book romance novel series focuses on life and loves of a California Central Coast town which loosely resembles the Santa Cruz area. Skillfully weaving place and story, the series evokes sentiments like, "I was born & raised in the Santa Cruz area,,,,,,this was like coming home again."


When not creating romance novels, Casey quilts, knits, reads, and hikes near the Clark Fork River in western Montana with her husband. The couple is owned by a slightly used cat.

Mid-thirties photojournalist CJ Beck has been running from her past since she bolted from her family’s ranch on the Rocky Mountain Front after high school. Her life in a war zone means never having time to remember the pain, but a sniper’s bullet forces her to return to Montana and confront her demons.


As a teenager, CJ had everything she wanted—a loving home and steady boyfriend. Her father’s death on a lonely Montana highway was the beginning of the end of her girlhood dreams. She created a new image as a tough professional, avoiding her four brothers, family obligations, and any real commitment.  But when a sniper’s bullet kills her husband in front of her, she’s sent back home to recover. What her bureau chief doesn’t know is that the belief she’s responsible for her husband’s death makes it impossible for her to take pictures.


The terms of her return to the front depends on a clean bill of health from a psychiatrist.  CJ knows she needs a lot more than that if she’s ever to take a photo again. But when she’s forced to deal with the past, including a man who wants a second chance at a relationship, as well as new threats to the family inheritance, she may face her greatest challenge of all.


Home Is Where the Heart Is is a story about of a young woman who must confront her family’s past and help secure its future to discover what real happiness means. If you enjoy women’s fiction with romantic elements, you’ll enjoy this book.
