Welcome to my very first Harlequin Desire set for a January 2013 release. After a long line of historicals, I’m thrilled to be lending a new voice to these powerful, passionate stories.
While writing this book, I fell in love with my characters. Fiercely independent, Angie carried on when the death of her fiancé left her pregnant. Now, as she struggles to raise her son, can she find happiness with a former enemy—the twin brother of the man she loved?
Jordan had long believed Angie was after his brother’s money. Now her young son, Lucas, is the only surviving link to his twin—and the heir to Justin’s fortune. Jordan is determined to raise the boy as his own. But proud, stubborn Angie is part of the package—and he can’t stop thinking about her.
One of my favorite characters has no lines to speak. He’s a rescue dog, saved from death row by the love of a little boy. I’m hoping Rudy’s story will inspire some of you out there to adopt a homeless pet or support a group that works to help these innocent animals. For every reader who posts a comment today I will donate 50 cents to our friend Chelly Kitzmiller’s Have a Heart Humane Society.
I’ll be writing more Desires, with three already lined up after this one. But for those who like their Westerns set in the past, I also have two historical in the works, the next one set for September 2013.
For three years Angie Montoya hid her son from her late fiancé’s family…until his brother tracked them down. Now Jordan Cooper demands she move to his Santa Fe ranch—the boy’s birthright. But how can Angie live with the man who called her a gold digger…the man whose one kiss she’s never forgotten?
Racked by guilt since his twin’s death, Jordan seeks redemption by raising his nephew. But Angie resurrects a hunger in him that only she can satisfy. Jordan knows he can have her on one condition—she never learns the truth about him.
