SYNOPSIS:
Matt Landry is fed up with politics and his life in Washington as a delegate. So he returns to Wyoming Territory to marry his fiancé Adrian Driscoll, an elegant young woman he met during a brief courtship in Cheyenne. With Adrian as his bride, he intends to start his own spread, and have the family he’s always wanted.

But Matt has no idea that Adrian’s father King Driscoll, is a corrupt rancher, who has control of the entire cattle market in northern Wyoming; that Adrian’s brother Kirby is a twisted sadist who loves to inflict pain; and that King will stop at nothing, even murder, to stay in power. When Matt steps in to help a young widow, whose husband is murdered on King Driscoll’s orders, his life takes a completely different turn.

Now, Matt has to make a decision. Does he fight for what he believes in or does he turn the other way for the sake of his bride?

AUTHOR BIO:
I was born in the mountains of Northern California. My father was part Cherokee and worked on various cattle ranches and we all followed the rodeos. My mother was second generation Portuguese-American. It was a fairly big family, with five kids. Hard times made for a close-knit group.

After graduating high school at 16 and passing the exam for the University of California, Berkeley, I had to put education on hold to help out at home. A few years later, I passed the College Equivalency Exam, attended Peninsula University Law School in Mountain View, California, and practiced law for several years.

I now write full time, having sold 42 short stories, most of them Westerns and 17 Western novels published by Avalon Books in a five-year period. I’ve also notched screenwriter to my belt. I write everything, but focus mostly on westerns. I am a proud member of Western Writers of America.

My upcoming western film SHADOW ON THE MESA will be broadcast on the Hallmark Movie Channel by June of 2013. Produced by Larry Levinson Productions, it stars Kevin Sorbo, Wes Brown, Gail O’Grady, Greg Evigan, Shannon Lucio, Micah Alberti, Barry Corbin and Meredith Baxter. It previewed September 10, 2012 on Dish TV’s PixL Channel.

BLURB:
The heart of change is the change of heart.

Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.

CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.

And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!

CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back.

After all, life is about making choices.

Even if it means leaving a stable career.

Even if it means leaving friends and moving half-way around the world.

Even if it means living with her mother’s rejection.

Even if it means losing her heart.

Even if it means risking her very life.

Until he wakes up from a night of partying with his friends to find himself in possession of a Santa suit, a toy bag and a puppy. Kris soon discovers that he’s been relegated to Santa’s naughty list and there’s only one way to get his name removed….put on the suit and spread some cheer.

Lucky for Kris every cloud has a silver snowflake and his quest to get off that list lands him in the arms of the woman he’s been lusting after for years.

It takes a little magic, but Kris is about to get everything he didn’t even know he wanted for Christmas.

BLURB:
Myth, murder, and money clash in this gripping undersea adventure.

The rare discovery of a ship sunk during the time of the Trojan War has been found off the coast of Turkey, near Troy. Charlotte Dashiell is an American nautical archaeologist and thrilled to be part of the recovery team. The wreck may contain proof of her highly controversial theory about the Trojan War.

Charlotte is present when the Turkish government agent assigned to guard the site is murdered. Her possible involvement and a questionable connection to a private collector of black market relics bring her under suspicion. Atakan Vadim is the Turkish agent sent to investigate her. Unknown to either of them, the smuggler behind the murder plans to steal a valuable artifact and frame Charlotte for the theft…after they murder her.

EXCERPT:
Shouts of “fire” came from all sides of the camp. The west wind blew sparks in the direction of the lab. They could lose the entire camp, but not the lab, not the artifacts.

Charlotte grabbed an empty barrel from the fire line. She ran with it and started climbing the stairs to the shower stall’s water tank. A man’s large hand covered her mouth. His other hand brandished a gun. With the cold barrel to her ear, he walked her backwards down the few steps to the ground.

“Don’t scream.” Little-by-little his palm came away from her mouth.

“Dan Brown underwater,” Amazon reviewer.

AUTHOR BIO:

I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books.

My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, four rescue dogs and a rescue horse.

She’s spent her life avoiding love.

Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O’Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie’s path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming.

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O’Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.
Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?

AUTHOR BIO:
I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother’s manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you’ll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story
