Book Three Winter Creek, Montana from Beachwalk Press.
Rose thought she was finally safe…until her past came back to haunt her.
It’s been three years since Rose Wilson escaped a controlling, abusive man and arrived at the historical town of Winter Creek, Montana, accepting a job as the town’s schoolmarm. She’s at peace here, among her newfound friends and an assortment of rowdy, interfering ghosts. She can finally begin to heal.
When Mark Craine rode into town a year ago, he immediately caught her eye. But Rose kept him at arm’s length, afraid to get too close, afraid his goodness was all a lie. However, the more she got to know him, the more she sensed he was a different type of man than her ex. Mark is honorable and kind. Still, it’s difficult for her to let go of her past and trust again.
A stolen kiss in the middle of the town’s one-room schoolhouse gives her the push she needs to move forward with him. She realizes she wants—needs—more than just his friendship. She needs his love. The schoolmarm wants to take a chance on the tall, dark cowboy.
When her abuser’s ‘enforcers’ show up in Winter Creek, her newfound freedom is threatened. But she’s a different woman now, stronger, and she will not allow them to intimidate her. But when her abuser himself shows up and they kidnap her, will she have the strength to get away, or will her ex win?

This is the second Winter Creek, Montana book with Beachwalk Press.
Barb Grant is the resident dressmaker for Winter Creek, an old ghost town that’s being rebuilt. But the town ghosts aren’t the main thing that’s causing Barb trouble. It’s the pre-teen girl who suddenly decides she would make a good substitute mother. And the girl’s father.
Wyatt Campbell has been the bane of Barb’s existence since their first meeting. One minute the cowboy is pissing her off thoroughly, but then the next moment she’s wanting to rip his clothes off and make love to him. When rumors start flying that he’s a horrible lover, she can’t believe they could possibly be true. How could a man who can evoke so much passion be a bad lover? Her need to know the truth is the only reason she says “yes” to his date request. Her plan—have sex with him and then say goodbye.
Unfortunately, Wyatt has other plans. He wants a real relationship. But he comes with a ready-made family, and that scares Barb. A ghost from her own past keeps reminding her that she’s not good mother material. She’s made mistakes, mistakes that resulted in a child’s life ending, and she can’t ever forget that.
Could Wyatt be the one man capable of getting past her barriers? Or will Barb’s past forever affect her life?
For some people ghosts are everywhere…
When rebuilding an old ghost town, a few ghosts shouldn’t be a surprise. And for Jen Ferguson, history professor and psychic, it’s par for the course. But ghosts aren’t her main worry.
After a disastrous affair, which has affected her job at the college, Jen promised her grandfather—the most important person in her life—that she would stay away from men until the end of the semester. That’s a promise she’s determined to keep, but when she meets rancher Adam Craine, it becomes a struggle. Adam’s sexy and flirty, and her psychic abilities are telling her that he might possess a very important quality the previous men in her life had been lacking…he can be trusted.
It’s a daily battle for Jen to keep her hands off of him, but she believes she can do it…until two of Winter Creek’s ghostly residents decide to up the stakes by possessing Jen and Adam’s bodies. How can Jen keep her promise with these two passionate spirits interfering?
And if all that’s not enough to deal with, now she’s having premonitions of danger which could lead to the destruction of Winter Creek.
