The Courageous Brides Collection

Ride into adventurous situations alongside nine determined women of yesteryear who are pulled into wartime battles, cattle drives, race relations, criminal activity, the Pony Express, the Underground Railroad, and accidents. Compelled by compassion and bravery, these women take action beyond expectations, attracting the attention of eligible bachelors.

The Healing Promise

During a forced march to Oklahoma, the Ponca Indians camp outside Neligh, Nebraska. When Marcy Whitt is unable to save the life of a Ponca child, she risks her reputation and her engagement to help the grieving family. When her compassion and courage attract the attention of a man who is more worthy than her fiancé, will she give him her heart?

What’s your favorite book?
I have several so it’s always hard to choose just one. Today it’s The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien.

What are you reading right now?
I’m reading the Polkark series of books by Winston Graham. After zipping through the first three on my Kindle, now I’m waiting for the fourth one to arrive. Can you believe it’s not available as an ebook?!

Cats or dogs or both?
I have both—a Maine Coon named Addie and a papillon named Rugby.
