Left pregnant and widowed in the unforgiving west, Cassie is forced into an unwanted marriage to rancher Red Dawson.
No decent man could turn away from Cassie and leave her to the rough men in Divide, Montana. Red Dawson does what he must, joining his life to a spoiled, snooty woman. Now he's got to keep her from killing herself with her efforts to be helpful, and prevent her attempts to be a good wife from leaving his ranch in ruins. And while Red struggles with his overly obedient but badly incompetent wife, an obsessed man plots to make Cassie his own, something he can't do as long as Red lives.
Montana Rose was actually inspired by Janette Oke's beautiful classic novel Love Comes Softly. Of course, me being me, my novel has taken an alarming turn to romantic comedy, suspense and mayhem.
I think of it as Love Comes Hardly.

Or find it starting TODAY in a bookstore near you. And if it's NOT there, I give you permission to throw a fit, right there in the store. I've found holding my breath until I turn blue to be a remarkably effective tool for getting them to stock my books. I highly recommend it too you.
