wos-stampede-fortcalgary

The Calgary Stampede for this year may be over, but the 7 books by the 7 authors of the Women of Stampede series are still in your local bookstore, and available to devour, one right after the other!

I had a great time with the Women of Stampede and our series of books. It’s been a whirlwind few weeks, with promotional events at Fort Calgary for the Stampede Invitational BBQ, and the pre-parade Stampede breakfast, the launch of the series at Owl’s Nest Books, and signings at various Chapters/Indigo locations in the Calgary area.

I also was featured in my local newspaper, the Cochrane Eagle! (Cochrane author releases Stampede love story)

Will there be other books in the series? We haven’t decided yet. It might be fun to keep this up! But in the meantime, check out the Women of Stampede Facebook group and the Women of Stampede website for more information. All the books are available online (Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, etc.) and also at Alberta Chapters/Indigo stores in paperback!

Betting on Second Chances is my contribution to the series, and the blurb is below!

CoverFinalLG-BettingOnSecondChancesOlivia Tate doesn’t want anyone knowing about her secret passion, especially her parents, who have always had their own strict ideas about her future and career. Not even her best friend knows how much she wants to chuck it all in and become a touring musician. She’s never played guitar for an audience, but it’s not entirely stage fright holding her back. Her parents have done everything for her, and she doesn’t want to disappoint them. But the need can’t be denied, and when she meets a familiar biker guy during the rush of Stampede, a guy with similar passions to her own, she knows it’s only a matter of time.

Will Fraser has never expected happily ever after. Being in foster care had taken that out of him right quick, and his few attempts at relationships…the less said the better. But when he sees his old high school crush at a Stampede pancake breakfast, all those feelings flood back and he realizes how much he wants that chance.

New series coming soon! The WOMEN OF STAMPEDE are here!

Women of Stampede

Howdy Readers!

Saddle up for the ride! The Women of Stampede will lasso your hearts!

If you love romance novels with a western flair, look no further than the Women of Stampede series. Calgary, Red Deer, and Edmonton authors have teamed up to create seven contemporary romance novels loosely themed around The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth… the Calgary Stampede.

Among our heroes and heroines, you’ll fall in love with innkeepers, country singers, rodeo stars, barrel racers, chuckwagon drivers, trick riders, Russian Cossack riders, western-wear designers and bareback riders. And we can’t forget our oil executives, corporate planners, mechanics, nursing students and executive chefs.

We have broken hearts, broken bodies, and broken spirits to mend, along with downed fences and shattered relationships. Big city lights. Small town nights. And a fabulous blend of city dwellers and country folk for your reading pleasure.

Best of all, hearts are swelling with love, looking for Mr. or Miss Right and a happily ever after ending.

Seven fabulous books from seven fabulous authors (including me!) featuring a loosely connected theme – The Calgary Stampede.

Coming this June to a bookseller near you!

It’s Official! My new lesbian romance, ‘Betting on Love’ coming in 2014!

I’m delighted to announce that Bold Strokes Books will be releasing a new, full-length contemporary lesbian romance of mine, entitled BETTING ON LOVE, in Fall 2014. It’ll be available in paperback and ebook.

Here’s the blurb, to whet your appetite…

Land poor, Elly leaves the family farm and heads to the big city to become something better than a waitress at a small-town diner. Though she’s succumbed to economic necessity and the siren song of her one-time lover, Alex, she can’t bear to give up the farm, which has been in her family for generations. As much as she wants to, she can’t have everything she desires, and she’ll have to decide what is more important: the past or the future.

Alex has always been a daredevil, up for anything, never tying herself down to anyone. When she falls head over heels for quiet Elly, everyone’s surprised, no one more than her best friend and occasional lover, Will. As things heat up between them, Elly must choose between her past and her future, and Alex is faced with a decision that will shake her to the core of all she holds dear.
