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.

Anybody want to be an ARC reader for a newbie author? I create clean romances, featuring a western/cowboy theme, and I include as much comedy as will comfortably fit into the story. If you’re interested, let me know, and be sure to mention whether you’d prefer ebook or paperback.

New Cover for Book Three!

Hello everyone! I can’t tell you how pleased I am with this artist and what she designs for my book covers. Each one is unique and fun, and they perfectly capture the essence of the story.

The Olympian and the Cowboy, Catalyst Series Book 3

Daisy is a new mother, recently widowed, and she needs a job. Catrina, our beloved matchmaker, tells her about a teaching opportunity in Northern California at a horse training facility. Since Daisy went to the Olympics on the U.S. Equestrian Team, she’s excited at the chance to be back in the world of horses. 

The owner, Danielle, is thrilled to hire her and has great plans for Daisy to teach English riding lessons since that is her area of expertise. However, her brother, Dakota, suspects Daisy is simply an unwed mother who is lying about her illustrious experience as an athlete.

When Dakota is confronted with a woman bearing an infant who is supposedly his, Daisy shows him compassion, even after he has treated her poorly. That, coupled with her phenomenal horse instinct that is equal to his own, has Dakota rethinking his opinion of her.

Recipes Included!

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.
