Sequel to Chase the Lightning
The Back Cover Copy says

Jenna McLaughlin loves the West, loves the ranch her father wrested out of the wilderness. Even after her mother returns to the east and her father passes away, even after her brother runs off and leaves her alone, Jenna refuses to give up the land she loves.

Jay Dalton is a half-breed with a price on his head. Wounded and fleeing for his life, he huddles at the bottom of a ravine and prays to the Great Spirit for help. It arrives in the form of the magical white stallion, Relampago, who carries Dalton from the present into the past.

Jenna is alarmed to find a wounded man in her yard. Reluctant to help a stranger, yet reluctant to turn him away, she takes him in and nurses him back to health.

The attraction that blooms between them soon turns to love and wishes of forever. But is Jay in the past to stay? Or will Relampago return him to the present where he belongs?

I've started another short story in my Lightning series. Not sure when it will be available, as I'm also working on the edits for one of my Ashley books. You can get a peek at it on the In the Works page

FOLLOW THE LIGHTNING is my most current historical. I really love this story, which is a full-length sequel to Chase the Lightning. These stories are such fun to write that I may do another somewhere down the road.

As I mentioned before, six of my historical romances - Reckless Heart, Reckless Love, Reckless Embrace, Reckless Desire, Lakota Love Song, Hawk's Woman, Apache Flame, and Cheyenne Surrender - have been being reissued by a new publisher, complete with new covers. All are now available on Amazon.

My three Lighting short stories - Catch the Lightning, Capture the Lightning and Seize the Lightning are now combined in one volume titled WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES. It also contains two Amanda Ashley short stories, Sandy's Angel and Jessie's Girl.

If you're an Amanda Ashley fan, her latest paranormal romance, NIGHT'S SURRENDER, is in stores now.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world!
