Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Born and bred on western stories by Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour, I grew up in the middle of nowhere Saskatchewan. Although modern life intervened, I soon realized the similarities between my life and North American western past. From riding horses, playing cowboys and Indians with real Indians combined with the scenery of vast, open prairies and endless horizons I was living my dream.

I have never forgotten my past or my love of anything country regardless of where I roam.

I belong to the Romance Writer’s Association of America and the Alberta Romance Writer’s Association and have attended many conventions in both Canada and the USA. I also edit/critique manuscripts. I have published – ”Hawk’s Gift“, ”Alberta Wild Rose“ ”Paradise on the Horizon” - historical romance and - “One Dance with a Stranger”, a contemporary romance.


With trouble brewing in western Canada, Roberta Taylor, an aggressive, ambitious reporter goes to the west to get reasons why anyone would resist a better lifestyle the government will supply than what they have now .    She meets enigmatic Damien Larocque and tricks him into taking her to Big Bear’s camp in Montana.  Big Bear is a notorious native leader who runs to Montana rather than accept a reservation and the starvation the government is really offering.

Roberta stands for everything Damien dislikes in a woman. She is arrogant and aggressive.  Why does she fascinate him so much?

Roberta is bewildered by her reaction to Damien’s exotic, carefree nature.  She is a wealthy successful lady.  How could she be attracted to a useless drifter, charming or not?

Set in Canada’s Civil War – the Riel Rebellion of 1885.



Emily feels it is important to hide her sordid past. She does not believe love will ever have any place in her new life. Love is messy and she wants no part of it.  Her job and her respectable fiance are achievements that she has no intentions of jeopardizing.  So why would she even think of risking everything to follow her heart’s desire – charismatic, fickle Wade Hart?

Country singing idol, Wade doesn't question why he is attracted to his brother’s fiancee. He just knows he will have her. He is used to getting whatever he desires. Today he wants Emily.

Set in the ‘new west’ – Calgary –  follow the twisted path of love and romance, too potent to resist.

Hades… hot? Heck no! WADE HART IS HOT!!  … a five-star review by Hammy.
