One dead body is frightening enough, but a second one, plus a dirty cop, sends chef Mikela Richards fleeing for her life. The ultimate city girl finds a safe hiding place on a Wyoming Dude ranch, where she tries to discover if the murders are connected to the mysterious computer memory stick she found in her car. But her fragile feeling of safety is disturbed by a compelling Marine, home on leave.
Back from Afghanistan to heal both physically and emotionally, Shawn Saunders recognizes the type of fear in Mikela’s eyes—it’s one of the things he’s come home to forget. Even though he knows it’s a bad idea, he can’t stop himself from trying to help her, while she’s even more afraid of letting him. In spite of their reservations, neither can resist the pull of their attraction.
Suspense, romance, horses and sometimes the paranormal are the themes I like to explore in my books. I’ve had a life-long preoccupation with investigating new trails and new ideas. When I was a kid, my best friend was a sweet, little horse named Star. We loved to ride in the hills or along the river and were always open to trying unknown paths. We saw lots of pretty country that way and occasionally got into trouble, but that never discouraged us. (Though after getting caught in quicksand one time, Star was very leary of soft ground from then on.)
I plan to continue seeking out the new with my writing. Explore unusual ideas, see where it takes me and enjoy the ride . I suspect I’ll sometimes get into sticky sand again, but that’s part of the adventure. I hope you’ll come along and try the new trails with me.
