She saw the sunset in his eyes...

Sexy Native American Ethan Stormwalker vowed never again to speak to his ex-flame, Cindy Wagner. But when she showed up at his dude ranch wearing a wedding gown - without a groom - all promises were off. Gone was the girl who had broken his heart, and in her utterly irresistible woman.

Runaway bride Cindy Wagner forever longed for past love Ethan Stormwalker. And with one look into his untamed gaze, the years of silence that hung between them melted away. But loving Ethan came with a price. Could Cindy turn her back on the life her family wanted for her to live for the man she was born to love?

ROMANTIC TIMES SAID: Cindy Wagner walks out of her wedding into the waiting limo and escapes to the Elk Valley Dude Ranch, intending to think about her life. Little did she know Ethan Stormwalker, the man she’d been in love with since she was 16, was working at the ranch. Cindy and Ethan discover life sometimes give you a second chance at love.

Madeline Baker makes the jump from Native American historical romances to series romance with grace. Dude Ranch Bride is a lovely read.

Publishing is an uncertain business at best. One of my publishers is closing its doors due to the health problems of the owner. The books affected -- which will no longer be available as eBooks or in print after May 12th -- are Catch the Lightning, Capture the Lightning, Seize the Lightning, Reckless Destiny, In the Shadow of the Hills, Passion's Promise, Love's Sweet Embrace, and Tales of Western Romance.

The 3 Lightning stories, Reckless Destiny and Passion's Promise will be included in a new edition of the anthology titled WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES. The other books will be reissued individually. No pub dates at this time.

Three of my reverted Silhouette Romances are available now. The other two - DUDE RANCH BRIDE and WOLF DREAMER will be available soon. Thanks to Cynthia Lucas for more great covers.

Amanda's next book, A FIRE IN THE BLOOD, is available now.

Wishing you a a happy spring, happy, happy everything!
