Have you ever notice that if you’re told you can’t have something you want it more? Like no chocolate or ice cream when you’re dieting. Or no more fatty foods when your cholesterol is up. Or worst of all, that man/woman isn’t for you. Leave them alone.
In my newest release, Brody: Letters of Fate, set in 1891 in Oregon, transports the hero, Brody Yates, from the New York City docks to a cattle and horse ranch in SE Oregon. He’s used theft for years, first to keep him and his mother fed, and later his neighbors. He stole one thing too many and ended up in jail.
A letter arrives that changes his life.
When he arrives at his grandfather’s ranch he discovers a beautiful young woman, his grandfather’s ward. Even though he’s angry over a past he had no control over and being hauled to his grandfather by a U.S. Marshal, he would have to be blind or dead to not see the young woman’s beauty . Even though his grandfather warns him not to dally with Lilah, he falls for her, knowing she plans to go back to the university.
Lilah Wells has lived her life around cowboys. She has nothing against them, but when the judge’s grandson arrives at the ranch in dock boots, wool pants, suspenders , a white cotton shirt, and spell-binding light blue eyes, her heart starts to waltz.
No matter how many things work to keep them apart, the two gravitate toward one another, and finally, their passion can’t be harnessed.

Historical western filled with steamy romance and the rawness of a growing country.
A letter from a grandfather he’s never met has Brody Yates escorted across the country to work on a ranch rather than entering prison. But his arrival in Oregon proves prison may have been the lesser of two evils. A revenge driven criminal, the high desert, and his grandfather’s beautiful ward may prove more dangerous than anything he’s faced on the New York docks.
Lilah Wells is committed to helping others: the judge who’d taken her in years ago, the neighboring children, and the ranch residents, which now includes the judge’s handsome wayward grandson. And it all gets more complicated when her heart starts ruling her actions.
