The Lady and The Ledgend
Two dreams could come true for Diamond Houston when her idol, Jesse Eagle, walks into the rundown roadhouse where she is singing for tips. Tall and temptingly handsome, Jesse just might be Diamond‘s ticket to Nashville. And Jesse does something special to her when their eyes meet — lighting passionate fires inside Diamond with the unspoken promise of nights to remember…
and the one thing she desires most of all: true love.
The voice of an angel brought Jesse back to this small I town in middle-of-nowhere Tennessee. And now that he’s met Diamond Houston, he is enchanted by much more than her remarkable talent. But proud and beautiful Diamond is nobody’s one-night stand; if he wants her, he’ll have to change his rambling ways. And everything may be what Jesse has to risk if he wants this rare jewel to sparkle for him alone.

. And now it was his turn to give. For the connection that linked Wyatt to Glory Dixon was the only hope he had of saving her from danger. And he had to try because without ever trying, Glory had become more precious to him than his own life.
DREAMERS ARE BORN NOT MADE Sleeping with men for money was not something Leticia Murphy had planned on doing when she grew up, but then, neither had she planned on being orphaned at twelve, or winding up in a godforsaken place in the Kansas Territories like Lizard Flats. But here she was, like most of the other lost souls who d come West, looking for something better, and in her case, wishing for a second chance. She knew the odds were against her, but it didn t stop her from yearning. There was a ritual from her childhood that she performed each evening as the sun was going down. She would step out onto the balcony off her bedroom above the saloon, lift her face to the heavens to search for the Evening Star, then stand quietly in the growing shadows and listen for the call of the Whippoorwill. It came from a memory of her mother who had died when she was ten. Always, she was sitting in her mother’s lap outside their clapboard house watching night fall across the land. They would sit on the front step with their bare feet planted firmly in the still warm dirt while enjoying the first cool breezes of evening. As they sat, they would search for the first star and wait for the call of the Whippoorwill. Her mother had told her the bird was searching for its mate, but Letty had yet to meet a man who was worth the call. However, the memory was one of the few good ones she had left. Two years after her mother s untimely death, her father was killed by a Comanche hunting party. Letty survived by hiding in a hollowed out badger hole. That was the last time fate showed her any kindness. At twenty seven, she was well past the marrying age and nearly too used up to care. Yet she didn t stop wishing, and she didn t stop dreaming about a different sort of life. Then one day, something happened in Lizard Flats that had never happened before. Word began to spread throughout the area that a real preacher from back East was coming to perform a wedding. The news set off a whole series of unforeseen events. Caught up in the excitement of the occasion, Letty couldn t help but think that a change was coming for her, too. A gunshot sounded just outside Letty s window. It wasn t the first time she d heard that sound in Lizard Flats and she would bet her next year s wages it wouldn t be the last. When the sound of an argument followed, she didn t even bother to get up and look out to see what was going on. Chances were she d see both of the stupid louts who d started the fuss before the night was out. Men were always the same. Drink. Fight. Then celebrate their victories or losses by paying for her pleasures. And since her friend, Truly Fine s exit months earlier, Letty was the only woman still working at the White Dove Saloon, which meant she got more than her share of fools in her bed. Refusing to think about the boredom of her life, she pushed the coal oil lamp a little closer to the mirror and then leaned forward, giving herself a final check before going downstairs. Her eyes were still blue. Her hair was still brown, but there were fine lines at the corners of her eyes that hadn t been there last year. She pouted her lips to check her lip rouge then gave a stray curl a final tuck. It didn t do to dwell on the inevitable. She was getting older. The day was going to come when she would no longer be able to get a dollar for each man that she laid. The strange thing was, she had never been able to see beyond that fear. What happened to old who*res, she wondered? Did they just dry up and blow away like the earth in Lizard Flats, or was there something worse? Something more sinister than even she could imagine? She made a face at herself just as Will the Bartender banged on her door. ‘Letty! You come on downstairs now. I got customers wanting a little female attention.’ ‘I m coming! I m coming!’ she yelled. Just before she left her room, she blew out the lamp and then walked to the open door leading out onto her small balcony overlooking main street. There was a faint breeze blowing, shifting the thin lace panels over her windows in an effort to get inside. She ran her fingers over the lace. Hanging the curtains had been a feeble attempt to give elegance to her life, but they also gave her a sense of satisfaction to know she d paid for them herself. Her momma would have loved the fine lace, she thought, as she walked out onto the balcony, although she would have heartily disapproved of how Letty had come by the money to pay for them. Once outside, she looked up. The sky was clear without a cloud in sight the Evening Star already evident. The air smelled of dust and gunpowder. The thin slice of moon hanging just above the horizon would not cast many shadows upon the darkening land. For Letty, it was a night like so many others, yet she still listened, waiting to hear that call. Just as she was about to give up and go inside, she heard the haunting, mournful coo of a lone Whippoorwill. Even though it was what she d been waiting to hear, it brought shivers to her skin. Somewhere beyond the lights of the town, a small brown bird was calling to its mate. The sound was a reminder of who she d been and not what she d become, and it gave her enough solace to face the oncoming night. Satisfied, she walked back into her room and closed the door. It was time to get to work.
Can a prostitute and a town drunk escape their past to find happiness and redemption? Ex prostitute, Leticia Murphy is hell bent on redemption, even if it kills her. However, Eulis is not averse to turning over a new leaf, as well. If they pretend to be a preacher and a ‘sister’, will it be enough for salvation? Come with Letty and Eulis as New York Times bestselling author, Sharon Sala continues her wacky and sometimes touching escapades begun in Whippoorwill. Set in 1860’s Kansas territory their journey takes them to Colorado where they overcome nature, hardship and collapsing outhouses in an adventure that proves the best things in life are the unexpected on ‘The Amen Trail.’
We are very pleased to announce the release of a new fiction title by New York Times bestselling author, Sharon Sala, titled ‘The Hen House‘. The last of the trilogy finds the couple in Colorado in the late 1800 s. In ‘Whippoorwill’, Letty Murphy had come to Denver City a single woman, although she d gone through more hell in her twenty nine years than she would have ever thought possible. She d nearly starved as a child and had sold herself to a man for money before she d even managed to grow breasts. But that was before she and Eulis had traveled to Denver City, survived a buffalo stampede, a smallpox epidemic, an attack from a half starved wolf, discovered gold, and gotten married in ‘The Amen Trail’. It wasn t just Letty’s last name that had changed, even though she had money more money than a person could spend in several lifetimes. It was her situation that had changed, even though she had yet to come to terms with the power and respectability that money could buy. There was still that part of her childhood self that listened each night for a whippoorwill s call, while struggling with the memories of being a fifty cent who*re and welcoming other lost souls into her home, ‘The Hen House‘.
