Mandy's Old West News and Notes

The Original Back Cover Copy said ~

Elizabeth Johnson was a woman who knew her own mind. Not for her an arranged marriage with a fancy lawyer from the East. Defying her parents, she set her sights on the handsome young sheriff of Twin Rivers. But when Dusty’s virile half-brother rode into town, Beth took one look in to the stormy black eyes of the Apache warrior and understood that this time she must follow her heart and not her head.


Before she knew quite how it happened, Beth was fleeing into the desert with Chase the Wind, fighting off a lynch mob - and find ecstasy beneath starry skies. By the time she returned home, Beth had pledged herself heart and soul to Chase. But with her father forbidding him to call, Dusty engaged to another, and her erstwhile fiancé due to arrive from the East, she wondered just how many weddings it would take before they could all live happily ever after.

ROMANTIC TIMES said, This sequel to APACHE RUNAWAY is pure magic and packed with action, adventure and passion. Madeline Baker fans, get ready to laugh and cry from beginning to the surprise ending.

The latest news ~

Some years ago, I wrote a short story about a teenage girl who gets pregnany by one guy and marries another. It's set in 1957. Since I've never read it at my critique group, I sent it to a friend to read. She said she couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting, so I'm guessing it's not too bad Anyway, it will probably be available in the near future, as soon as we can come up with a cover. The tentative title is Love's Sweet Embrace. You can get a sneak peek by clicking the link in the right hand column.

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

I finished FOLLOW THE LIGHTNING and sent it to my editor. Now the waiting begins.

By December, EC Blush and Amazon will have re-published all of my Leisure and Signet back list as ebooks.

"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be a great drought, disaster, and hardship but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that The Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won't fail. Harold B. Lee
