I'm glad you stopped by.  Nobody loves a happily ever after like romance readers and writers.

Take a look through the excerpts and see where my books lead you.

No matter what the twists and turns, you know there is a happily ever after to look forward to!

False Notes


 In late summer 1874, Simon Barr, one of the premiere agents of the newly evolving US Secret Service, arrives in Hobart, Oklahoma Territory, to meet his partner, Luke Hayden, and begin investigating a large scale counterfeiting operation. Shortly after arriving, Simon meets the lovely Kirsten Bentzer, only to learn she has ties to his two chief suspects. His attraction to Kirsten catches him off guard and wars with his sense of duty. Surely, she can’t be innocent, no matter how much he wishes it were so.
