On Common Ground

A woman destroyed his trust. A man destroyed her spirit. Can love assuage their pain and heal their wounded hearts?

A finalist in the Great Beginnings Contest, sponsored by the Utah chapter of Romance Writers of America, On Common Ground earned a 5-Star Readers’ Choice Award, a contest for books by indie, celebrity, and iconic authors. It also earned a 5-star Crowned Heart award qualifying it for the prestigious RONE award, InD’tale Magazine’s acknowledgment of the very best books in the indie and small publishing industries.

His marriage over and his career in jeopardy, Trevor Donaldson seeks sanctuary at the Diamond D Ranch in Arizona. After gunning down the man who shot his partner, the accusations hanging over his head, the hounding media, and his own inner turmoil keep him awake at night.

Ketra Weston sought sanctuary at the Diamond D to escape the ugly backlash she suffered after a violent assault following a Good Samaritan act went wrong. Time at the ranch promises peace and the anonymity she needs to heal.

Trevor’s distrust of women, after his failed marriage, and Ketra’s skittishness after her brutal attack, leave them both wary of the opposite sex, despite their curiosity of the other. But, everything changes when Trevor discovers that their lives are intertwined and he learns that her past might hold the key to his exoneration.

Cowboy Ranch

A detective’s daughter. A rugged rancher. Can they track down cattle rustlers and lasso love?

Callie Houston needs a break from misery. But when her car breaks down on her way to a rodeo, she finds herself stranded in small-town Montana. Praying that God has a plan for her misfortune, she’s flattered when two handsome brothers offer their ranch for the night.

As she works with Luke to hunt down a band of cattle thieves, Callie realizes she’s falling hard for the kind-hearted cowboy. But when Luke discovers the out-of-towner making plans to head home to Minnesota, he scrambles to convince her to stay.

Will the unlikely couple embrace God’s design and discover everlasting love?
