Love at wolf creek


Sparks fly, lies unfold, and mistakes that lead to peril are made when a wealthy Texas cattle rancher hides his identity while meeting the spoiled, socialite daughter of a New Orleans businessman who was blindly promised in marriage to him. Will they be able to survive the dangers that threaten them, grow to love each other, and move past it all for a happy life together?

Fighting for a cause he doesn’t believe in, Aiden Kennedy’s final battle alongside his confederate brethren was fought a month after the war between the states ended. Left for dead, a widowed cattle rancher doctors him up and takes him on as a partner. When a wealthy Louisiana business associate desires to solidify the union of his meat packing and exporting business with Aiden’s cattle ranch, he offers his socialite daughter in marriage; having never met Aiden. Aiden takes advantage of his anonymity and poses as a bodyguard sent to escort the daughter back to Texas so that he can get to know the real Pauline O’Malley before he commits to marriage with her. It’s love at first sight for them both. Sadly, Pauline believes the handsome and sexy Aiden to be the hired hand and her fiance to be a middle aged, leathered cowboy. When she runs away to escape the plans for her that were set in motion, she ignites a journey of chaos, betrayal, danger, discovery, and love for both her and Aiden.

I am doing all I can to get my books out to the readers.  I have an author website: (New Adult paranormal/romance/thrillers) and (historical romance).  I have book trailer for most of my novels posted on;;; my author websites; and my facebook book fan page.  It is my intention to offer audio books for a good deal of my novels.  I have only been published a few years, but I write quickly ( 10 novels in the last 11 months)  so my inventory of published works is growing.  I send ARC to reviewers and have been lucky enough to get 4  & 5 star reviews for the most part.  Books are launched with a book blog tour for their initial release or a cover reveal and an email to opt in followers.

Sample text:


Cannons roared, and gunshots echoed off the distant hills.  They blended with the cries of men as they were taken down in droves. He looked into the eyes of his neighbor. There was fear mixed with something else?  Regret?  It was probably regret. He knew he wasn’t the only one who wished he’d reconsidered joining up with his confederate brethren to fight for something he didn’t even believe in.

Aiden Kennedy owned no slaves. Having immigrated from Ireland with his mother and two brothers, he was all too familiar with the concept of one person owning another.  They called it indentured servitude in his homeland, but it was nothing more than slavery with a time stamp on it.  

He’d only been in Virginia for a week before war was declared.  He’d started out in New York, but the reception for Irish immigrants was poor and they were forced to live in conditions they wouldn’t ask a rat to enter back home.  His mother contracted tuberculosis on the trip over and died shortly after they landed.  His older brother, William, was killed by a blow to the head in an exhibition match by an opponent as big and strong as a bear within a week of setting foot on land.  That left him and his younger brother, Colin, to make their way in a strange and foreign land.  Colin was killed by a runaway wagon after stepping out of a tavern while pissed.

Aiden was disheartened and devastated. There was fortune awaiting back home.  Sadly, it was attached to his father, who was a ruthless brute.  The way his mother had gathered them up and snuck away in the middle of the night would have surely set his father off.  Aiden had no doubt that, if he stepped foot on Irish soil, his father would beat him until he longed for death
