Widowed neurologist Dr. Daniel Lucas has a comatose Jane Doe patient. The only thing he knows about her is that she was badly beaten by someone and left for dead. And that he is strangely, inexplicably drawn to her. So drawn, he allows his young son to sit by the woman's bedside and relate stories of the old west once told to him by his deceased mother.
The abandoned wife of an abusive husband, Cassie struggles to maintain the small Montana ranch she and her young son call home. When drifter Daniel Lucas comes by she hires him on, grateful for both his physical labor and the support he lends against a greedy neighbor who wants her land. And although she is still legally bound to the man who deserted her and her son, Cassie finds a transcendent passion. A doomed passion.
Dr. Lucas' skill finally brings his Jane Doe back into the world of the living, and her secrets are revealed. Along with a brutal ex-husband who is coming back to finish the job he started. Is Cassie doomed to suffer the same fate twice? Or is love indeed strong enough to transcend time?

About the Author
Dolores J. Wilson was born a coal miner's daughter in Morgantown, West Virginia. At age eleven, her family moved to Tampa, Florida. Quite a culture shock from that little coal mining town.
Her writing background consisted of a neighborhood newspaper she and her cousin published at age twelve. It was full of neighborhood gossip. Thank goodness the cousins were too young to be sued for slander. In junior high school, she wrote a few articles for the school newsletter, mostly food articles. Hence, the seeds for her love of writing and food were planted.
In Dolores’ first attempt at writing a novel, her hero was wimpy, her heroine was almost never in the story, and the actual writing left something to be desired. She had to do something. So began her journey of writing classes, RWA chapter meetings, and conferences. There she found an eclectic group who not only shared her passion for writing, but weren’t afraid to share the writing knowledge they had acquired along the way. Many years later, Dolores considers many of those writers as her best friends.
Dolores lives in northeast Florida with her husband. Her adult children (except for one in California) and nine grandchildren live very close to her. She is the current President of Ancient City Romance Authors, St. Augustine, Florida. She is celebrating the re- release of her Bertie Byrd-Fortney / Big Hair trilogy by Salt Run Publishing LLC.
