Overview

Chloe Maitland was a practical woman. Living in a dying Oregon mining town, she’d given up her girlish dreams of love and marriage. What she needed was a man to answer her advertisement for a blacksmith to work in her shop and help save her home from foreclosure. What she got was an exhausted stranger who collapsed in her yard, looked like the devil himself, and proved to be far more dangerous than she could have imagined.

Travis McGuire was a man with a dark past, no future, and no prospects. Doomed to live the life of a drifter, the last thing he wanted was any kind of entanglement with a woman like Chloe. But then she proved strong enough to look his past in the face and risk everything she had for a chance at a passionate true love she thought she’d never find.

Meet the Author

I am a working novelist, with 12 books published over the past 16 years.

I'm thrilled to be able to bring to my readers my backlist through PubIt. 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 one cat, 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?

I'll read just about anything written by Stephen King, Frank McCourt, or Martin Clark. A few of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series, the Outlander series, Angela's Ashes, A Farewell To Arms, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Observations, Lonesome Dove, A Garden of Sand, Gone With the Wind, Hummingbird, Trinity. And yes, I'm an extra-sticky sucker for the Twilight series.

I just love her books, they pull you in from the first page, you feel like you're right there with them. Her books really take you to a different time and place, and make you feel all the emotions she creates with the interactions between characters.

I love alexis' stories. This one was great with the characters at odds and some suspence. Twists and unexpected events made me forget I had laundry to do and other things! She makes the characters believable and you feel for them and route ghem on. Oh yeah, travis and chloe, great love interests.

I enjoyed this book tremendously. Chloe, Travis, and Evan made this story come to life. Wow, the name Misfortune alone would make me want to leave town. However, there are always some die hards that try to stick it out. I loved Chloe's guts and determination.
