After spotting a pattern associated with the Western Rodeo Circuit, Regina (Reggie) is hunting a bank robber by going undercover at the rodeo. It’s the chance she’s wanted to prove that she can be an investigator. Except on Day One, she encounters the guy she’d once thought was The One. Not only could he blow her cover, but she realizes he is also a prime suspect. An injury gone wrong derailed Chapin’s surge to the top of the rodeo world, but he’s not ready to call it quits. He’s been working his way back by competing as William C. Johnson – a k a Bill. One word from Reggie would turn the spotlight he’s been avoiding right on him. With each able to reveal what the other is hiding, they come to an uneasy truce. But as Reggie digs deeper, Chapin is noticing more than she would like. … And there are those old feelings that might have gotten a new lease on life.

For a limited time, my fellow Rodeo Knights contributors and I have put together an Instafreebie giveaway page, where you can download the 2015 Rodeo Knights trilogy or other Rodeo Knights-related titles. You can find my ALMOST A BRIDE there or discover new authors at no cost to you! By the way, the Wyoming Wildflowers series that includes Almost a Bride and continues this summer with A COWBOY WEDDING (more on that below) also contains a prequel, RODEO NIGHTS. Yep, that’s a different book, although look for a Kalli and Walker cameo in Ride the River, along with characters from my other books set in Wyoming. Don’t worry, I’ve included a handy map to help you keep track of all the intersections.

The Season for a New Series

WARM FRONT completes the rolling releases of three new books and one updated edition of my Seasons in a Small Town contemporary romance series set in Drago, Illinois. The series revolves around the good people of rural and solid-but-struggling Drago, from its schools to its police department, small farms and businesses to varsity sports teams. WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR? (Book 1, Spring) and THE RIGHT BROTHER (Book 2, Summer) were released in March. I edited and updated FALLING FOR HER (Book 3, Autumn) and re-released it as a second edition in April. A brand-new book, the series finale Warm Front (Winter), came out in May. 

Things heat up in this winter tale of Quince, a Zeke-Tech executive, and Anne, a Drago widow trying to save the family farm. You’ve met both of them in other Seasons books, and I hope you enjoy their stories in Warm Front.

Marry Me: Bells Are Ringing

The Marry Me series, contemporary romances set in small-town Wisconsin, launched in late 2016 with the release of WEDDING OF THE CENTURY and THE UNEXPECTED WEDDING GUEST! The series is now complete with the recent release on Book 4, BABY BLUES AND WEDDING BELLS.

You’ve read about Steve Corbett’s brother Zach in the first Marry Me books. Now he’s here at the Corbett House doorstep with his notorious past and his sparkling blue eyes. But relief at knowing he’s okay after years of silence is complicated by what his return will mean to those in this tight-knit group. Especially to the little girl named Nell, who is still absorbing the news that her beloved Daddy isn’t her biological father. And that Zach is. Also what it will mean to Fran Dalton. Her brother, Rob, finds his soulmate well outside his comfort zone in Book 3, A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING. In Book 4, quiet, contained Fran invites bad-boy Zach in to her home and her life. But not her heart – would she? Could she? Find out now at the retailer of your choice!
