I’m deep into writing Fugitive Bride, the third book in my Western Brides series, after Badlands Bride and Stowaway Bride. Fugitive Bride reveals what happens to reckless, too-beautiful-for-her-own-good, and youngest Highfill sister, Annabelle. The handsome Pinkerton operative she met in Stowaway Bride is the hero Annabelle never knew she was looking for, and when they meet again, sparks fly.
Readers constantly ask me about Haunted, the sequel to Mind Tricks. My fascination with Annabelle’s story has pushed this story to the back burner, but I expect to have a first draft finished in 2014 and have it available in 2015. Thank you to everyone for your patience!
Don’t miss my new release, STOWAWAY BRIDE
Romantic Times says of Stowaway Bride: “Immediately captures readers’ attention with its feisty heroine and darkly handsome hero whose first meeting sets the stage for a stormy romance.”
Emily Highfill Grant is living the life most young women would envy: fashionable picnics on Boston Common, country parties with eligible bachelors, and the wealth of her grandfather Charles Bertram Highfill assuring her of a fine marriage to an equally highbrow husband. But what Emily wants more than anything is to go West to see the land and the people who have settled there—and to break free of the cage her famous name and fortune have built for her. When her mother decides to travel to San Francisco, Emily sneaks aboard the Pullman Palace railcar her mother hired with a plan to surprise her mother once they have left the station. But Emily is the one who is surprised: the railcar has been leased at the last moment to Lucien Delatour, and she’s now traveling cross-country in a cozy private car with a handsome stranger.
