New Release and Giveaway!

It's here! Safe Haven Ranch is now available for purchase! Here's the story:

Can two little children help turn a feud into a family?

It should be easy for widow Olivia Ortiz to despise Will Mattson, the man keeping her from buying the ranchland she needs for herself and her daughter, Emily. But when Emily becomes instant friends with Will’s nephew, Jemmy, Olivia and Will find themselves growing closer as well. And as Olivia’s feelings for the handsome cowboy shift, competing for the property could be the start of something more…

This story is special to me for two reasons. First, it was inspired by my late sister's real life home beside the Rio Grande. Second, it is a legacy story from my historical series about the Mattson family of New Mexico Territory Ranchers: Yuletide Reunion, Finding Her Frontier Family, and Finding Her Frontier Home.

On May 31, 2024, I’m giving away one print copy of Safe Haven Ranch to a U. S. (only) resident. To enter my drawing, leave a comment under this post. Be sure to leave your email address so I can notify you if your name is drawn.
