When their father is accidentally killed, the oldest sister, Gwen, reasons that she’s cursed. After all, death seems to haunt her: her mother, now her father…
and she was married for a mere ten days before her husband died from a bout of measles. As Gwen and her sisters struggle to maintain the inn on their own, an unexpected visitor adds to the mayhem. Hank Bishop claims to be searching for something in the possession of Gwen’s late husband. But mayhem of another sort builds in Gwen’s heart as she finds a growing attraction to this man. Can she dare to hope that love might again be hers?

A Love to Last Forever

All Beth Gallatin has really wanted out of life is to settle down in one town, with one man, and raise a family. But with her father’s roaming ways, she’s always been denied that dream; instead, she found solace in reading romantic books. With her father’s passing, she can, for the first time, dare to claim the rugged Montana frontier as her home.

Nick Lassiter has loved Beth since she first came to town, but she’s always seemed to think of him more as a brother. Just when he finally gets Beth to consider him, however, a challenger threatens the affection growing between them. But neither Nick nor Beth is prepared when they must face the consequences of Nick’s complicated past.

As a past fraught with unwise choices and guilt invades their world, can Nick and Beth find a love that will last forever?

Enter Dave Shepard, deputy sheriff for the area. Dave has been fervently trying to find the man who killed George Gallatin, but he always feels inadequate when it comes to the beautiful Lacy. When they are together, the tension crackles between them both when they argue and when they kiss. Lacy finds him frustratingly irresistible…
but is it truly love?

Seventeen year old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat keeper. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how oppressive society can be…
and that she may be trusting the wrong people. Dare she follow her heart and risk going against her family? What if she loses everything she’s ever known? It all comes down to one choice: What does Fanny Broadmoor want her legacy to be?

An Unexpected Love

The family money has brought her everything she desires, but she is about to risk it all…

Sophie Broadmoor adores fancy balls, beautiful gowns, and expensive jewelry. Indeed, she enjoys everything the Broadmoor wealth provides and has earned a reputation as the wildest of the Broadmoor cousins.

During a trip to England, she falls head over heels for Wesley Hedrick, a wealthy widower who promises her the world. But Wesley’s promises never seem to come true, and soon Sophie finds herself in a very compromising situation.

Why does it have to be Paul Medford, the young minister working with her father, who shows up during her worst moment? Paul is full of promises, too and it’s clear that he has feelings for Sophie. But after all she’s been through, dare she trust him?

A Surrendered Heart

At twenty one, Amanda Broadmoor had the right to make her own way in life, but her father and mother hardly saw it that way. Women working in the medical field were still frowned upon, and Amanda had been reared to marry and produce heirs, not tend the sick. And especially not those suffering from cholera.

‘And Mama can be such an alarmist,’ Amanda whispered.

At the first report of cholera in Rochester, Amanda’s mother had suggested the entire family take refuge at their summer estate on Broadmoor Island in the St. Lawrence River. However, that idea had been immediately vetoed by her father. Father had said his work would not permit him to leave Rochester, and for once, Amanda had agreed with one of his decisions. After devoting so much of her time and energy to medical training at Dr. Carstead’s side, she couldn’t possibly desert her work not now, not when she was needed most.


The ‘merrie old days’ of the Middle Ages leave much to be desired for four women in England and France. Can God rescue them from the emotional dungeons they face and lower the drawbridges into the hearts of the men they love?

Alas My Love

England in the Middle Ages is far from a jolly place for an unprotected young woman. Yet the savagery of her stepbrother and the devious schemes of her stepsister have given golden haired Helena Talbot little choice. She must find shelter elsewhere. Afforded protection by the magnanimous Duke of Gavenshire, Helena nonetheless lives under an assumed name, ever fearful her whereabouts will be revealed to her stepbrother. Only one dream transports her above her worries, the desire that one day she will be reunited with brave Tancred. Years have passed since they were together and now an ocean and a king’s decree keep them apart. But are those obstacles stronger than a woman’s prayer for love?
