Courting Trouble


“Virtue! Is that all you’re worried about? The woman’s on trial for murder!”
Grace Davenport is either the unluckiest woman alive–or a killer. When
her third husband is found dead, she is arrested for his murder.

Attorney Brock Daniels isn’t interested in the case–until he meets his beautiful client. Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace.

Then Came Spring

It all started with an ad in a mail-order bride catalogue . . .

Mary-Jo has traveled halfway across the country to meet her match, arriving just in time for his funeral. Returning home seems like her only option until her would-be brother-in-law proposes a more daring idea.

A Long Way Home


Libby Summerfield can’t wait to get out of Deadman’s Gulch—a lawless mining town filled with gunfights, brawls, and uncivilized mountain men—men like Logan St. John. Stranded there with a new baby, the pretty widow tries to make the best of it. But she vows to return to the refinement of Boston as soon as the weather clears and the stage resumes its run. Maybe then her heart would stop quickening at the thought of Logan’s gentle touch.


Logan St. John knows Deadman’s Gulch is no place for a woman—especially one who single-handedly turns him into a church-going family man. Of all the crazy things! The sooner she and her precious baby leave for Boston the better. But how could he stand to lose this spirited woman who tamed this wild western town—and melted his heart of stone forever?

Head Over Heels

Indiana 1896
