November -- time to give thanks for all of our blessings!

November corn       I have so many things to be thankful for this year, I don't know where to start. Yes, I do -- THANKS to all of my readers! You are the BEST! Because of you, my newest book, DESPERATE HEARTS, is a big success! I've had some wonderful book signings and met some new readers. I hope those of you who haven't read this story yet will pick up a copy at your favorite bookstore or get one through (Read more about DESPERATE HEARTS here, and find ordering information for all e-reader formats on my E-book List page)

       A SNEAK PEEK AT 2015!!! The new covers by artist Jon Paul for OUTLAW HEARTS (coming next June) and DO NOT FORSAKE ME (coming next July) are finished, and they are are spectacular! The pose of hero Jake Harkner with his beloved wife Miranda on the DO NOT FORSAKE ME cover is reminiscent of the famous pose of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara in GONE WITH THE WIND - where they are standing on a bridge with Atlanta burning behind them. It's really gorgeous! My editor LOVES DO NOT FORSAKE ME and the hero, Jake Harkner, so get ready for a BIG read next summer - at least 550 pages of gritty, mean, wild-west action and a truly great love story! DO NOT FORSAKE ME is a story of forgiveness and redemption and true love - a story you will long remember! (Read more about OUTLAW HEARTS and DO NOT FORSAKE ME here!

       I have a feeling DO NOT FORSAKE ME will be my biggest seller yet. It's so strange to realize that the first book, OUTLAW HEARTS, came from an idea I had about 30 years ago while standing in the bathroom fixing my hair. I had nothing to write on so I scribbled the idea on the back of a check book with an eyebrow pencil. Now, Sourcebooks is asking for a third "Jake" book, which I am already working on -- I call it LOVE'S SWEET REVENGE. All from a few words on the back of a check book. Wish I still had that check book. I'd frame it!

       Currently my agent is working on getting all 7 of my SAVAGE DESTINY books back in print with hot new covers!! I can't wait! I've also submitted a proposal for a new Indian/white historical romance called EMBRACE THE WIND, as well as a proposal for a sequal to PARADISE VALLEY. Yes, it's time to revisit Sage and Maggie!

All three BRIDE books are now available in one e-reader edition!       Of course, for your fall reading and holiday gift-giving, remember that Diversion Books has reissued FIVE of my older books -- TENNESSEE BRIDE, TEXAS BRIDE, OREGON BRIDE, FULL CIRCLE, and UNTIL TOMORROW -- in all e-reader formats, in print- on- demand paperback versions for those who prefer a real printed book -- AND as audiobooks!

Rosanne with her replica Colt .45

A Colt .45, much like the gun my heroes use - and my own .30-.30 rifle. The Colt is surprisingly heavy and requires a strong hand and arm to draw, cock and fire in one swift movement. That would take a LOT of practice!

Because of the large number of requests I receive for full lists of my books, the Books In Print section of this website is frequently updated to reflect my latest releases, as well as listing all of my past works. I have also added a My Books Now Available in E-Reader Formats page with ordering links for all e-reader formats. You can also use the "Search" link below to find new, used, and Kindle versions of my books on! Associate
