Bonnie McDaniel had spent the last four years trying to keep her brothers and sister alive. She'd managed somehow to feed, cloth and keep a shelter over their heads.
But now, she was lost. There was no money left. She owed a mortgage she couldn't pay. There' wouldn't be enough money for food, and she had to figure out what to do? Her only answer was to find a husband that could help her. She needed someone that would stand beside her and help support her siblings. But who?

So she went to town to find a husband. She run into Dal Odom. She knew him, but she was almost sure he would not remember her. So she boldy stepped up and asked him to marry. He refused her without any consideration, telling her she was too young. But Bonnie didn't give up, she kept right on asking different citizens of the town, all to no avail.

But when Dal Odom learned that others were going to run her and her siblings off the land and take her water, he had other ideas. She had helped him once long ago, and now it was his turn to save her. He liked her, admired her for what she had accomplished, but heck, he never figured on falling for her.

About the Author

Hi folks! Free books I'm offering for the Holidays Forever in Love, Let it Snow, The Forgotten, and Nancy Mae & the Sad Christmas Tree. The last two are children's Christmas stories. The first one Forever in Love is a Civil War romance, and Let it Snow is a New Adult Christmas story. I hope you enjoy them. Okay, you ready for this, I just added three more free books: Silver Bells and Santa Hats, Surprise Under the Mistletoe, and Jodi Journey. Happy reading folks. On top of those free books I've added another, Bad Day for a Killing. I've added this one to the free list as some don't realize that Good Day for a Hanging and Bad Day for a Killing go together. Bad Day for a Killing is the rest of Elmer's story. And you'll really miss something if you don't try it. Because what I did, I created a villain in Good Day for a Hanging. But in BAd Day for a Killing the villain tries to go straight. Still, remember there is a price to pay for the things we do in life so Elmer goes through some really tough times, even though his heart is in the right place. He's grown since the first book, and I think you find it interesting and captivating in what happens to Elmer and his sister. Don't miss it. It's free until the first of the year. Well folks I'm going to do something I haven't in a long time. I'm going to enjoy the holidays. I have one book that is coming out soon, Teach Me To Love. It's another Dream Catcher series book. It will be out soon. I may try to release a children's book around Christmas if I can. Then I'll get busy and get to work on all the ones I have lined up. I want to relax for the holidays so you'll get at least one more romance before Christmas and then first of the year I'll knuckle down and work. I've been working non-stop for a while, and I think I deserve just a short breather. As for a bio, suffice it to say, I'm a Texan tried and true. I have grown children and grandchildren and already some great-grandchildren.I've done multi jobs in my lifetime giving me a variety of experiences to write and talk about. I've done many different kinds of work from Texas Instruments, to City of Garland, to working for the Wylie Independent School District. I've worked for a hat factory, filing insurance claims, secretarial work, to waitress. My writing reflects my varied background. Another note I've had a in home day care for twenty years too. So when I write about something I have a general knowledge of it too, which is a real bonus for me. Just like my public work, my writing varies too from contemporary to historical, I write romance, thrillers, childrens. A lot of people might say gee, that's a lot of different jobs, and it is, but, I've learned from them all, and I use that experience in my writing. I want to thank all the readers over a length of time that have tried some of my books. I hope I've enlightened and entertained you. I hope I've shared some love in this world. Sharing love can't be bad, it's God given. My sincere wish is that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas and we all look forward to having a good next year. I thank all of you for being with me all this time and I am working on books, but not too hard during the holidays. Unless I get wound up, which I sometimes do. Merry Christmas to you all. God bless.
