Excerpt From An Anchor On Her Heart:

“Therefore, God said, let a man leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife and they will become one flesh. What God has brought together, let no one put asunder.”

McKenna sniffed, holding the camera close to her face to hide the moisture trickling down her cheeks. She needed Dane’s protection, strength, and love. The pastor’s words cut deep, the knife of her pain stemming from Dane’s absence. He only saw the physical side of his responsibility—keeping her fed and sheltered. Emotionally and spiritually, she lived in a state of drought. Her heart ached to be held. Her prayers seemed to fall on deaf ears.

What am I supposed to do, God? I’m so alone. So forgotten. I want to honor my marriage vows by remaining faithful, but I don’t know if I’m strong enough to endure the everlasting loneliness in which I am imprisoned. I need to be freed of these bonds. Please bring Dane home.  Sydney needs a father in her life. Help us. I’m falling apart.

 Can a hurting boy help two broken people find their way back to love ?

Lissa Frye returns home from the Navy hoping to find a different future—one which includes a husband, marriage, and a family, until news from her sister impacts Lissa’s personal life and derails her plans.

Kurt McKintrick, having lost his best friend to an IED in Afghanistan, has returned to help the man’s mother run a horse rescue ranch. Images of war plague him, and thoughts of anyone else he might love falling victim to an untimely end, distance him from the person most likely to help.

Eleven-year-old Jayden Clarke seeks to fill the ache in his heart from his father’s death two years before. But his life is turned upside down when the rancher who befriended him is found dead, the horses neglected, and the dog missing. When authorities arrive to investigate, Lissa and Kurt, estranged after a former relationship, are forced to meet again. Lissa must confront images from her past and Kurt struggles to live with his present truth.

Will Jayden be the catalyst that draws Lissa and Kurt back together for a happily ever after?

Excerpt From Love Calls Her Home:

Lissa couldn’t imagine city-boy Kurt working at a horse rescue facility—mucking stalls and stacking hay. His experience with farm animals could be bundled in a shell casing. But maybe he’d needed a change from military life in the sandbox of Afghanistan as much as she’d needed solid ground under her feet after the Navy.

What would Kurt think when he discovered she’d sent him a dirty little filly? Or when she stood waiting by the barn as he drove up? If there was a more original way to get reacquainted, she didn’t know what it might be. She couldn’t wait for Tuesday.

Excerpt From A Kite On The Wind:

She hadn’t grown up on the Oregon coast and assumed the north Pacific was all surf and sand. She’d never have guessed the shore could be covered in white, nor had she seen it this way, even in pictures. Mounds on the beach turned into oversized marshmallows. Driftwood transformed to fanciful fences. Did this happen often? On the sand? In November?

Yet here snow fell—sloppy, fat flakes fluttering down like a curtain of white fairies on a theater’s stage opening night. The quiet drift of the airborne dancers made her pulse race, their presence evoking memories from her past—images she’d tried to forget.
