Overview

Kyla Springer was on a dangerous mission. A power-hungry, greedy group called the Vigilance Union seized her property, her innocence, and took over her hometown. She was determined to win two of them back. Disguised as a boy, she rode across treacherous miles to hire a bounty hunter whose reputation was known and feared throughout the territory. It never crossed her mind that love and revenge would come to her in the same man.

Jace Rankin had just killed a murderer when a ragged kid named "Kyle" found him in an Idaho saloon. Hardened by old hurts and a solitary life, he had to be convinced to avenge the boy's enemies. But when he learned that he was really a she, his trust in the human race dropped another notch. Until he realized that his love for Kyla was so great, he'd fight her battle simply because she asked, even if it broke his heart.

Meet the Author

I am a working novelist, with 11 books published over the past 16 years. THE IRISH BRIDE was translated into Norwegian, where I understand it was a big hit.

I'm thrilled to be able to bring to my readers my backlist through e-books. There will be more titles added--new ones--in the months to come.

I love to cook, sew, read, entertain friends, decorate, and pursue various crafts.

I live in the Pacific Northwest near the Columbia River, still within 10 miles of my old high school. I have two cats, a 100-pound dog, one finch, and three chickens who all seem to want to be in my small office while I'm trying to work (except the chickens, although they'd be thrilled to get into the house if I let them). Getting up to step around them is like maneuvering an obstacle course, but they are my children and so dear to me. My hours are kind of goofy--I'm just not a morning person and tend to be up late when the rest of the world is sleeping--and QUIET. No phones, faxes, distractions. Just the kids and me, candles burning, and the elevator music coming out of my CD player.

Before I made the leap to full-time writer, I spent about 12 years working for consulting civil engineers. Riprap, anyone? How about a nice detention pond?
