Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old daughter on his
own. His mother remains on the Double Dutch to lend a hand—giving him
the ability to maintain the ranch, tend to his horses, and keep up his
small-time ranching magazine. His attractive, new assistant is
everything he wants in a woman, including her ginger-red hair. He finds
it hard to keep her out of his arms—especially since she doesn’t mind
being in his embrace. But from his experience with women lately, he’s
learned that some don’t want a ready-made family. This one seems
different, and he’s falling hard. But, there’s his little blue-eyed
girl, and he’ll protect Destiny’s heart with everything within him.
Until he knows for sure…
Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity ends up a
statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a
family betrayal from her past that still needs mending, she moves back
home to the small town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on
her mind. When she is hired by a local rancher to help with his ranching
magazine, she finds herself profoundly attracted to him, and the
feeling is mutual. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal,
and his little girl is immediately drawn to her. It’s not just about two
hearts taking a chance now—or two people falling in love… Nora has to
be sure of what she wants before she takes on the cowboy and his child.

have to go— He learns that sometimes a hero has to prove he is one.
He’d like to give her the world, be the man she needs, but an injury during

future hangs in the balance?
All they ask for is a peaceful life together—a new bull riding season with a

Velia Armano had the strength to walk away from an abusive husband.
After throwing a dart on the map, she moved from Chicago to Tucson,
Arizona and opened her own photography studio—at the cost of leaving
behind her close-knit, prominent Italian family.
the physical and mental abuse she endured, she builds confidence,
welcomes independence, and regains her self-worth.
into her well ordered life alone, a hunky cowboy saunters in with his
howdy, ma’am and flame blue eyes, offering a job any photographer would
find hard to refuse. She accepts his offer, and discovers they both have
their own obstacles to overcome. While trying to resist his heated
embrace and gentle nature, she hopes to find the right answer before the
season ends—to remain in her self-appointed exile, or give in to a
“happily ever after”.
Bull rider Caulder McCutchen wants to start
living again. But this year he has a good chance of winning the coveted
buckle, knowing he has to ride harder, go bigger, or go home. Winning
consumes him, but it doesn’t take away the pain from a tremendous loss
less than two years ago.
On a whim, he hires a feisty
photographer to travel the bull riding circuit with him for a season. A
little extra publicity can’t hurt, and she’s easy on the eyes. When he
finds himself passionately attracted to her, will this sassy little
Italian photographer prove to be just what his claim to fame needs—or a
disastrous distraction? When the season ends, who wins the real prize?
Come along and see what happens when classy takes a trip with rowdy.
It's quite obvious this blog isn't used like my other blog A Walk With Words. I'd like to invite you to sign up with my other blog. I'll be posting a little of everything there, so the blog name seems to fit. My current posts are about my newest release, which will happen soon. The book cover is finished and I'm talking with an editor who just sent back my sample pages. She seems satisfied, and I know I am with the edits she returned.
I created a new page there to announce my current release, but I added Coming Soon. At this point, I don't have a release date. It depends on the editing process. I hope you're curious enough to visit that blog and stick around awhile to learn of my current works and other information. I do an occasional Meme and Thursday 13. Every now and then I will write about a prompt I found interesting, or write what's on my mind. You're all invited. It will be great to have you along as I take a walk with words. Was that cheesy? Oh, it's okay. I know it sounded cheesy. You know, it's just who I am sometimes.LOL See you across the net.
I'm getting to the point of wondering what to do with this blog. Most of my posts now appear at A Walk With Words, my other blog. Sometimes I will post links here to something I wrote there, and I don't know if that's a good idea or bad idea. I like the idea of having a writing blog separate from a rambling blog, but I don't keep this up as much as the other. I like the idea of using Blogger, and sometimes I can only log in to comments on other blogs, with this URL. What to do?
I'm still in the process of editing one completed novel. I've put some works in progress to the side so I can concentrate on finishing the one I'm editing now. This happens to be a 2010 NaNo novel. With this one out of the way, and either submitted or put on Kindle, I can concentrate on getting my Enchantment series books revised and put on Kindle. For now, the few works in progress I have are starting to drive me crazy. Each one calls to me to come back. But, with self-discipline I'm going to stick to the current WIP. More details on this at A Walk With Words, so if you'd like to hop over to that blog and read my current post concerning My Promise, Love Always Wins I'd be pleased.
