Here’s the new cover for my upcoming release, His Runaway Bride. Isn’t she gorgeous?
Back to the past. I’m currently working on a historical romance set in the 1860s. I have a damaged hero, a veteran (of sorts) of the civil war and a spunky young heroine running away from an arranged marriage.
When I write, I find that I tend to go all out. So my poor family endures having conversations with a wife and mom who isn’t quite living in 2016. There’s lots of chicken tenders/fish sticks for dinner, dust bunnies under the beds, and housewifely neglect (I often joke that I’m not a house-WIFE because the house would have divorced me long ago). Thank goodness my family is supportive and my husband LIKES fish sticks or I’d be doomed.
So, I apologize if my posting is a bit spotty while I get the story out of my head and onto my hard drive.
My current release is Murphy’s Law. This is a sweet romance with an incredibly brave, scarred Afghanistan veteran willing to risk her life and her heart for the people she loves. This story combines a little bit of my beloved dad, who was stationed at Chandler in Arizona and loved all the old stories of the Dutchman’s mine, and my admiration for the men and women of our Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for the freedom of the American people.
Rae Morgan traded a secure life in Stallion Springs, a small Arizona town, for a life of exotic adventure in the military. When a bombing in Afghanistan left her with devastating scars, she returned home to help run the family business. When her estranged father is murdered, she’s shocked to discover that ‘the one who got away’ is now the man investigating the crime.
Growing up, Murphy Hawke had one goal—to escape Stallion Springs and the racial bias against his mixed Apache/Caucasian heritage. A murder in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains returns DOI Special Agent Murphy Hawke to his hometown and the ‘girl’ he left behind. Only now, Rae’s all grown up, sexy, smart, and irresistible. He’d like nothing better than to rekindle the passion they’d once shared.
Unfortunately, she’s his chief suspect.
