To rescue their daughter…
…they must reunite.
When Thomas West came home from the goldfields, it was to find he’d been betrayed by his brother and the girl who swore to be true. Now, fourteen years later, he finds the woman he loved at his door demanding his help because his brother is dead, and their daughter has been captured by the Sioux. Not his brother’s daughter… Thomas’ daughter.
Sarah West claims Thomas was reported dead, leaving her in trouble with a broken promise to return. When she discovered he was alive, she was already a mother and married to is brother. Now he is going to help her save their daughter.
The two estranged lovers set out for the Great Plains to rescue their daughter, but can they mend broken fences— and heal their broken hearts?
Behind the scenes on writing High Plains Bride
High Plains Bride is and was one of my favorite stories to write because the opening five pages came to me in their entirety one Saturday morning when I floated in that state between dreaming and waking. The dialog, the setting, even the smell of the hero’s shaving cream came to me clearly.
I didn’t write it down right away, but the story stayed with me. I kept wondering what had caused these two to separate. I don’t usually begin writing until I have much of the major plot points worked out and with this snippet, I didn’t know why this woman was holding this man at gunpoint, why she never told him he had a daughter or why she hated him enough to shoot him. I had to work all that out with my conscious mind and that took a while.
This book was originally published in 2007 and I am so please to bring it back to my fans with a brand new cover and behind-the-scenes details on the writing process. High Plains Bride is now book #4 in the Trail Blazers series and releases 10-10-19.
Lately, I have begun using actors as inspiration for the physical characteristics on my hero and heroine. This helps the art department get it right and helps me keep track of descriptions while writing a series. Who did I use for Adirondack Attack?Read More
