Overview

The notorious Dodge City madam, Sally Sweets, tries to conceal her profession from her visiting father by marrying a comatose cowboy. The cowboy unexpectedly wakes up, but has amnesia, so Sally continues the marriage charade. By the time her father leaves, she's developed a strong attraction for the cowboy and thinks she might stay married. But the cowboy doesn't like being in the brothel business and begs Sally to leave Dodge City and move to New Mexico where they can run a legitimate hotel. Sally's "girls" try to break up the marriage to prevent this. The cowboy regains his memory and realizes Sally has lied to him about everything—including their love. He also remembers the great tragedy in his past that drove him to be a wanderer. Can he forgive Sally's deceits and believe her vows of love? Can she give up her ill-gotten riches and settle down with a plain cowboy?

Meet the Author

I was born in Kansas, have lived for a time in both Hawaii and California, and am now firmly settled in what I consider my adopted native state, North Carolina. I left my first career as a scientific research assistant in areas that included bugs, bacteria, and food to pursue my first love, writing. Following the advice that you should write what you like to read, my first novels were historical romances. I started in the American West, have also set stories in Medieval England, Victorian England, and a couple in contemporary times. I even traveled to a far away galaxy in Passionate Warriors. The one constant in my fiction is romance. I love a good love story.

I've been a member of the Romance Writers of America since 1993 and served as the newsletter editor for my local chapter of this organization for four years and received the Heart of Carolina Romance Writer's service award in 1998. I've written articles about writing, which have been published in the newsletters of a number of RWA chapters, and presented several programs at chapter meetings. In the last couple of years, I've taught two online workshops, one about figures of speech and another about variation in sentence structure.

I won the Eppie for the best electronically published historical in 2003. This award is given by Electronic Publishing Industrial Coalition (www.epicauthors.com), a group of writers and publishers who promote electronic publishing. The book that won this award, Sally Sweet's Sister, is still available; one of the great features of electronic books. You can find all of my books, both electronic and paper, on the "Book List" page. My latest books include the bestseller A COUNTESS OF CONVENIENCE and HELL ON WOMEN. Enjoy!
