Bundles of Joy
Alyssa Cartwright was still married to the sexiest cowboy on the rodeo circuit, though Jacob "Cub" Goodacre thought she'd had their marriage annulled. But while Cub assumed she was ending their marriage, Alyssa was giving birth to his child!
MEETS THE SWEETEST LITTLE COWGIRL IN TOWN.
Cub didn't know anything about being a daddy, especially not to the two–year–old beauty who'd laid claim to his oversize cowboy boots. But one smile from his newly discovered daughter was all he needed to become an instant family man. Now all he had to do was convince Alyssa that he was husband material!
A dimpled, diaper–clad darling proves to be just what this couple needed!
About the Author
She'd often made up stories in her head and/or continued the stories that she'd read, so it seemed like a fun idea to try to write a story of her own. It took a lot more effort and organization than the loosely strung-together scenes she'd run through her mind, but she was right about the fun part! She enjoyed the whole process and wrote a story that she knew she would enjoy reading.
She sent it off and was thrilled when it was accepted! It was even more exciting to see her name on the book cover. Some 50-plus books later, it's still a thrill to see her name on the book and it's still fun to make up stories - at least most of the time!
Barbara gets her ideas from everywhere but especially from reading, which she loves to do. Sometimes, just a sentence in a newspaper or a magazine will spark an idea to develop into a romance.
Other times, she'll be inspired by another romance novel and she will try to put her own spin on a favorite old plot. Barbara believes that we all have our preferences - she's always been partial to the "secret baby" story line. That, plus the "marriage of convenience" and class or family conflicts are some of her particular favorites.
Her three daughters are all grown up now, and she and her husband are the proud grandparents of a beautiful little grandson. They also have three cats who seem to think that they are the rulers of their house. They are terribly spoiled, and they just might be right.
