When Nathan Bradley's ex-wife disappears with his daughters, he does everything in his power to find them. His private investigator hits a wall and suggests Nathan convince psychic Gillian Moore to help him. At first, Gillian is reluctant. She'd come to L.A. from Indiana to get lost in the crowd...to escape her gift that sometimes seemed more like a burden. As a manicurist, she is learning to relax again and enjoy life. But when Nathan makes his plea and shows her a picture of his girls, she knows she must help him. However, the spark and sizzle between them becomes a fascinating impediment to her progress. Gillian, who was once burnt by a divorced dad, tries to keep her perspective. But Nathan is a force to be reckoned with. Will her gift lead her to love or heartache once again?

Once a doctor, Zack leaves tragedy behind and heads for a life that once brought him peace. After selling his Internal Medicine practice in L.A., he finds a temporary job on the Rising Star Ranch in Wyoming. Lucy McIntyre, adopted into a large family who loves her, does her father a favor by checking the man's references as well as doing a face to face interview. Always grateful for the family who accepted her no matter what, Lucy never expects the sizzling magnetic pull toward Zackary Burke. Almost immediately she realizes he's a complicated man. But she has her own secret. And in the middle of Zack's interview she receives an unusual call from the family lawyer that could lead her on a search for a lost sibling.
Complicating life further on The Rising Star, Lucy's brother Marty is drinking too much and Lucy is covering for him. 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 and can't deny their sizzling attraction. Although 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 happily-ever-after.
I wrote ALWAYS HER COWBOY years ago but it was never
published. When I decided to expand my Search For Love series, I knew
it would be perfect for the series and I eagerly revised and updated
it, while trying to keep the old-fashioned western charm. The search
for Lucy's sister fit right in to the Search For Love concept. Zack's
search to find himself again also became a compelling element in the
novel. If you've read Book 1, NATHAN'S VOW, you know Gillian Moore's
gift has been important in all four books. I will be addig a
re-release within the next couple of months and then I hope to add
another brand new romance to the Search For Love series about Lucy's
twin Cassie in 2012.
Throughout all my books (over 75 now) , I attempt to keep the emotion
of my characters as the focus. My intention is always to touch my
readers' hearts and urge them to believe in happily-ever-after. The
power of love to heal is one of my abiding themes.
May you all find abiding love.
Thanks to Judy Bullard for my wonderful cover.

Cassidy Sullivan has secrets. Her mom died when she was five and she'd never known her dad. A life in foster homes ended up with her on an icy road in a hot-wired car on her way to trouble. An accident and a kind widowed rancher took her in and taught her the meaning of unconditional love. Last year, her twin sister Lucy (from book 4, Search For Love, ALWAYS HER COWBOY) had found her through using psychic Gillian Moore. Now Cassie wonders if Gillian can help them find their father.
Before they can begin, Cassie meets Ben O'Donnell her foreman's nephew. Ben is a wealthy CEO who has brought his daughter to Twin Pines Ranch to help her recover from her mother's abandonment
of them both. Since Ben spent summers on Twin Pines under his uncle's watchful eye when he was a kid, he knows the value of ranch life. He's hoping it will bring his daughter Julie some much-needed happiness.
Neither Ben nor Cassie count on the immediate and potent attraction between them that goes deeper than chemistry. If Cassie confides her secret to Ben, will he turn away? Even if he doesn't, what kind of future can they have if they live a country apart?
The search for a father and true love is a lot to handle at the same time. But Cassidy Sullivan isn't your ordinary cowgirl, and Ben O'Donnell could possibly become CASSIDY'S COWBOY.
