The Stolen Kiss:
From rivals…to lovers!
The moment beautiful Cassandra Halverson arrives in Tulsa, Micah Bollinger knows she'll be trouble. No sooner has she set up her dressmaker's shop than she starts poaching his customers. Determined to beat Cassandra at her own game, Micah decides to keep his enemy close!
Cassandra wants nothing more than to create a new life doing what she loves and to leave her past behind her forever. But the presence of her infuriatingly gorgeous competitor threatens it all. When an unexpected kiss takes them both by surprise, it's not long before fury turns to red-hot passion!
This story is related to The Major’s Wife, which is now available in paperback! The ebook version will be released Feb. 1st!
WILL THE TRUTH SET THEM FREE?
Major Seth Parker knows his wife, and the woman standing before him isn't her. The manipulative vixen who tricked his hand in marriage could never possess such innocence—nor get his heart racing like this!
Millie St. Clair has traveled halfway across the country to pull off one of the greatest deceptions ever. But with everything at stake it soon becomes clear that the hardest part might be walking away from the Major when it's all over….
Our weekend agenda includes an ice fishing trip—for Papa and the granddaughters. Although the fish house is well heated and roomy, I’m not a fan of sitting atop frozen water, warm or otherwise, so I will stay home and work on my next WIP. It’s the third story in my roaring twenties series. Set in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, these stories are about four sisters—each with their own book. The four Nightingale women, Norma Rose, Twyla, Josie, and Ginger, all embrace the freedom gained by women in the 1920’s. However, their father, Roger Nightingale, aka The Night, is one of the country’s largest bootleggers and set on keeping his girls as innocent as a morning breeze.
The first story is Ginger’s, a short e-book only tale. (No release date yet, but the edits have all been completed and the story is set to go.) Ginger, the youngest of the girls, takes her future into her own hands and runs away from home—by hiding away in the back of Brock Ness’s truck when he leaves for Chicago to perform on the radio. Brock unfortunately owes Roger Nightingale a good sum of money, so when he discovers Ginger under the tarp of his truck, snuggled up to his guitar case, Brock is anything but impressed.
The next story is Norma Rose’s. Final edits were just approved by my editor today! Norma Rose’s story is a full length one and will be available in print and ebook. She’s the oldest sister and has brought Nightingale’s from nothing more than a dance pavilion to a sprawling resort that caters to those with money to spend. This also includes plenty of gangsters, and where you have mobsters, there’s sure to be a revenue man sniffing about. Norma Rose recognizes Ty Bradshaw as a government agent the moment she meets him, and is determined he will not bring her family down. Ty is after public enemy number one, Ray Bodine, and doesn’t care who he has to bowl over to catch the mobster, including Norma Rose Nightingale and her bootlegging father.
The third story is Twyla’s, the boldest and wildest sister. This is my current WIP. Twyla’s story will also be a full length book available in print and ebook. She loves living at the country’s largest speakeasy and isn’t about to let anyone rain on her parade, including rival night club owner Forrest Reynolds.
The last story will be Josie’s. Another full length book. Josie’s the quietest and most secretive sister. I’m still plotting out her story, so at the moment, all I can say is the ladies aid meetings she’s continuously going to aren’t as innocent as they appear.
To say I’m having a lot of fun with these sisters and their stories is an understatement. I’m also working on a story set in Cody, Wyoming that has a ghost in it—sort of.
That’s all for now.
