Free for the next 5 days!

This is the first book in the Catalyst Series of clean cowboy romances. These are short romances, most of them are a little over 100 pages; perfect for reading on your lunch hour (or a few lunch hours, depending on how fast you read). Here’s a synopsis:

To B&B or not to B&B. That is the question for Bethany. She’s lost her boyfriend, her apartment, and her job. Catrina gives her an airplane ticket to Idaho to work for someone who wants to start a new bed and breakfast. A baker at heart, Bethany leaps at the opportunity to leave the city behind her and soon finds herself surrounded by pristine mountains.

Her new boss welcomes her warmly but his son, Beau, reacts to her in the opposite extreme. He’s adamant that a B&B will never work. His antagonistic attitude to the whole plan and his desire to send Bethany packing puts her in a tailspin.

When Beau turns into a recluse, Bethany asks about his background and discovers he’s been badly abused. She decides she must help him, and requests that he teach her how to ride a horse. When she suffers a concussion due to a freak accident, which he believes is his fault, Beau has a change of heart.

Celina is the director of a prestigious ballet school in Dallas. Her father passed away recently and her elderly mother is living all by herself on a ranch in Montana. The hired man just quit and she must find someone to run the ranch until they can sell it, and convince her mother to move back with her to the city.

Catrina’s Uncle Cody, from Book 1, leaves his cattle ranch in Idaho and goes to Montana to help take care of the ranch. When he learns of Celina’s predicament—that her mother refuses to leave—he begins hatching a plan to help her.

In despair, Celina decides she will have to quit her beloved teaching job in order to care for her mother. She returns to Dallas to finish teaching her final semester, planning to come back to Montana during spring break; but when she arrives at the ranch, she finds that the furniture and belongings are gone, and so is her mother!

The Cowgirl and the Cowboy, Catalyst Series Book 5, gets a new cover . . . Yay!

Good Morning, Everyone! Just wanted to pop in and show you the next new cover in my series of short romantic comedies. I’m also going to include a pic of the inside formatting because it is just so darn cute.

The books in this series are just a collection of short fun reads that should be suitable for anyone; I wrote them with that in mind. That’s why I call them “clean.” When my daughter was around 10 years old, she read books like most people drink water. It was so challenging to find good quality books to give her. I really had to work at it! So, if anyone else has a child like that, I know the work it takes to find reading material that is suitable for that age group. Here’s a short synopsis of the series, to give you an idea of what you’ll find in the books:

The Catalyst Series of books is the story of Catrina A. Liszt. Gorgeous, wealthy, quirky, and single, she’s obsessed with pairing up all her friends and acquaintances. While she does have a job working for her father’s corporation as CEO of Human Resources, matchmaking is her passion. Each book captures the story of a man and a woman she’s painstakingly selected for each other, to be a perfect match. 

Her loyal and tireless minion is Adrian, who manages to put at her fingertips any information she requires, often at a moment’s notice. He’s also the one in charge of keeping champagne at the ready for their celebrations whenever the match is successful and an engagement is announced.

Join Catrina and Adrian in this light-hearted collection of romantic comedy adventures. 

I’m hoping to get a boxed set of Books 1 through 5 out in time for Christmas. Wish me luck!

Judging a Book by its Cover . . . 

I think we all do that. Totally. Even though we know we shouldn’t. We can’t help it. It was a difficult decision for me to give in to that reality. I love my homemade book covers, they were so fun to make, and I’d hoped people might decide to read my work anyway, even though the cover wasn’t professional, but I learned that it just isn’t that way. So I found a wonderful graphic designer and she came up with what I think is a darling cover for my first book.

The Baker and the Cowboy, Book 1

I also did some updates to go with the new cover, and this edition includes recipes! Since Bethany is a baker, I had fun selecting some of my favorite recipes for Chocolate Cake, Double Chocolate Cookies, Blueberry Pie, and Cherry Cobbler.
