Learnin the Ropes cover 09-12Have you ever been desperate?
It can lead to choices you might otherwise never make…
Learnin’ the Ropes – Out of work and out of luck, auto mechanic Ty Lewis responds in a moment of desperation to a classified ad for a job in Harney County, Oregon. Offered the position on a remote ranch, he bids goodbye to his sister and his life in Portland. When he arrives in the tiny community of Riley to begin a new adventure, he encounters the behemoth dog that rules the ranch although he has yet to meet his boss, an elusive employer named Lex Ryan.

Lexi Ryan, known to her ranch hands and neighbors as Lex Jr., leaves behind a successful career in Portland to keep the Rockin’ R Ranch running smoothly after the untimely death of her father. It doesn’t take long to discover her father did many crazy things during the last few months before he died, like hiding half a million dollars that Lexi can’t find.

Ty and Lexi are both in for a few surprises as he arrives at the Rockin’ R Ranch and begins learnin’ the ropes.

Heart of Clay Have you ever kept a secret?

Deception wars with love in this sweet contemporary western romance.

Heart of Clay – Strong-willed, successful and determined, Callan Matthews lives the facade of a happy, wonderful life. Unfortunately, unbridled chaos runs amuck in the deep, dark places of her heart as she struggles to keep herself together. Her once beloved husband, Clay, tugs relentlessly at the last few threads keeping her from completely unraveling. His laid-back attitude only serves to drive her further away instead of drawing her back into his arms.

   Easy-going cowboy Clay Matthews is a respected college professor. He’s the man family and friends turn to for help, or when they need a good laugh, since he’s a huge tease and practical joker. Life would be almost perfect, except for his relationship with his wife. Clay is completely baffled by Callan. He thought he knew everything there was to know about this woman but she’s turned into a mystifying female he barely understands. He’d give just about anything to recapture the feelings they used to share, but she seems to want no part of it.

   Just when he decides to get to the root of the problem no matter the outcome, he discovers a secret she kept from him that’s too painful to bear and too big to forgive. Will their love be strong enough to withstand a revelation that could rock the foundation of their marriage?

Meet Callan and Clay in their character worksheets or check out The Women of Tenacity board on Pinterest.

Participating bloggers are also asked to answer the question: Do the changing seasons influence your writing and/or choice of books to read?

My response: Absolutely! The seasons influence both my reading and writing although with my writing, I sometimes find myself writing a holiday book when the temperature outside is sweltering and I’d much rather eat Popsicles than sip hot chocolate. I definitely love reading books according to the season, though. I can hardly wait to get started reading Christmas stories as the holiday approaches.


For my prize drawing, I’m giving away the winner’s choice of any two of my books in digital format. To enter to win, go to my Amazon author page and like it then post the number below, or like my Facebook page and post “liked” below, or share one thing you love about the autumn season!
