Carrie is horrified when outlaws attack the stage coach carrying her and her father west, killing the driver, the shotgun guard, and her father. Left alone in the desert with night coming on, her future seems bleak until a stranger reluctantly comes to her rescue.


 Bohannon is a gambler, a wanderer, and a half-breed wanted by the law in South Dakota for killing a white man. He has no interest in taking Carrie to Willow Tree Springs to claim the ranch her father bought, sight unseen. But he can't bring himself to leave her behind.


 The trail to Willow Tree Springs is fraught with danger, but as time passes, Carrie's fear and mistrust of the man who saved her prove unfounded. By the time they reach their destination, she's fallen in love with Bohannon, and he with her. Together, they begin working on the badly-rundown ranch, restoring the house, rebuilding the barn, planning for the future.


 But their future suddenly looks grim when Bohannon is arrested and taken back to South Dakota to stand trial for murder. Against his wishes, she follows him, fearing that a guilty verdict will end her hopes for a life with the man she loves.



Sad to say, there's no news on the cowboy side of things. AT the moment, my Muse doesn't seem to want to write anything but vampires. I've finished two paranormal books and am currently working on another. Hopefully, she'll get in the Western mood soon! 


Hope all is well in your corner of the world, filled with smiles and sunshine and good books! 


Wishing you a delightful summer! I can't believe how fast this year is going by!






I sold several of my books to Mondadori Publishing. The first two of these, Cheyenne Surrender and Hawk's Woman, are now available in Italian.



My vampire/Indian/time-travel book, SECRETS IN THE NIGHT, is available now. I loved writing this book as it has all the elements I love best!

This is Eddie Little Sky. He used to dance at the old Indian village in Disneyland, which is where this photo was taken.


I had a crush on him when I was a young girl and he became the inspiration for all my Indian heroes.
