Once a doctor, Zack goes on the road with his Harley to leave the past behind and find a future. He lost his wife and unborn son. He couldn’t save Kay and the powerlessness was as difficult to deal with as his grief. Growing up on a ranch that his parents later lost, Zack heads for a life that once brought him peace. After selling his practice in LA, he finds temporary jobs on western ranches until the work is finished. Then he moves on. Until he arrives at the Rising Star.

Lucy McIntyre’s father interviewed Zack over the phone. But he trusted Lucy’s instincts and gave her the job of checking the man’s references as well as doing a face to face interview. Adopted, always grateful for the family who accepted her no matter what, Lucy never expects the sizzling magnetic pull to Zackary Burke. Almost immediately she realizes he’s a complicated man. But she has her own secrets. Because of a riding accident when she was seventeen, she can’t have children. And in the middle of Zack’s interview she receives an unusual call from the family lawyer. When she drives to his office in Long Brush, she finds a photo of two baby girls. The lawyer believes she has a twin. Lucy is as loyal to her family as they are to her. She doesn’t want to hurt them or make them think they haven’t given her enough…that they aren’t enough. Should she find this sister who might be a twin?

Complicating life on the Rising Star, Lucy’s brother Marty is drinking too much after a break-up with his girlfriend and Lucy is covering for him. She hopes that soon time will heal his pain. Zack tries to convince her her brother needs help, but Lucy is hoping the situation will resolve itself on its own. She knows Zack is a loner and a drifter and doesn’t intend to stay. But they are still drawn together, can’t deny their sizzling attraction, and find they can listen to each other with some perspective, even though they don’t always agree.

The McIntyre family accepts Zack into their fold. At first his heart is hard against emotions he doesn’t want to feel. But Lucy begins to change all that…she thaws his heart and leads him to love and emotional healing. Through this healing, Zack realizes exactly what future he wants. Accepting love in his heart helps him save Lucy’s brother and find everlasting love.

His Country Cinderella

his-country-cinderella-book-sizeContemporary romance about a country singer hero and a heroine who is a single mom and a waitress.

When Zane’s lips came down on hers tonight, they weren’t gentle or light.  Oh, no.  Tonight they were hungry, searching for desire to be fulfilled, searching for a response that might or might not be there.
Her body reacted as if she’d been born to respond to Zane. She enfolded her arms around his neck, and he pulled her in tighter.  His tongue slid into her mouth and her gasp of pleasure opened her up more completely to him.  He explored with a possessive need that almost made her moan.  She felt as if a low burning fire inside of her burst into flame.  She couldn’t get enough of his mouth on hers, his tongue retreating, then urging her on.  Pressed against him, she felt his arousal and a satisfaction she had long ago forgotten.
When he withdrew and pulled away, they were both breathing hard.  She was still trying to catch her breath when he said, “That was Zane the man who kissed you, not Zane Gunther the country singer.”
