This year of 2016 is an exciting time for this Historical Romance writer. Not one, but THREE new releases will offer your heartbeat the opportunity to flutter with romantic joy. Here is the synopsis of each book and the release dates:
Promise of Deer Run (Book 2, Deer Run Saga) Releasing June 16, 2016 through CrossRiver Media
The year is 1790.
The American Revolution is long since over, yet the battles still live in the hearts of the survivors.
One young veteran is haunted by the painful memories of war. He still awaits a father who has never returned from battle and feels the sting of betrayal from a former love. He withdraws into his own world, clinging to one hope: Perhaps his father still lives.
Only one person in Deer Run seems to understand him: Nineteen-year-old Sarah Thomsen, who feels a kinship with the loner veteran. She senses the wounds in his spirit as much as she struggles to bury her own traumatic memories of war. And the veteran’s search for his father touches a chord of empathy in Sarah, as she feels the loss of a father she never knew.
While the couple begins to find hope in a mutual affection, others determine to destroy it. Slander and misunderstandings ignite a fire of doubt and mistrust, destroying whatever faith they had in each other.
Can two souls longing for healing and trust love again? Can faith—and a family—be restored?
Saratoga Letters (releasing through Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas October 4, 2016)
The engagement that was the turning point in favor of the American Patriots during the Revolutionary War is the event driving this novel.
Part 1 takes place in 1777, immediately after the Battle of Saratoga in the colony of New York. The story begins after the first skirmish and follows a romance that grows between enemies—a Colonial woman named Abigail who is forced to provide nursing care, and a wounded British soldier, William. The reluctant nurse is also pursued by others in the enemy camp who have less than gallant intentions toward her. Abigail does not know who she can trust—or who might betray her.
Part 2 takes place in 1977. It’s been 200 years since the Battle of Saratoga and Revolutionary War re-enactors are gathering in New York State. Among the re-enactors are descendants of the original soldiers from both sides of the battle. Men and women come from as far away as Europe to remember the historic conflict that turned the tide in the American Revolution. But some conflicts have never been resolved and some of the players in 1977 are in as much danger as those in 1777.
When past meets the present, will romance from years ago be reborn? Or will ancient hostilities be unearthed? Letters from long ago may hold the key.
Legacy of Deer Run (Book 3, Deer Run Saga) Releasing December 8, 2016 through CrossRiver Media
The year is 1800.
A young man makes weapons for the defense of America, still a fledgling nation. He also protects his heart from the allure of a young woman whose station in life keeps her out of his reach.
The lady fights her own war against loneliness and grief. Despite her finery and airs, she is drawn to the young armory worker who is distant yet disarming.
Love is not the only entanglement. The nation’s enemies are afoot. They creep within the very walls where America’s defenses are forged. Who are they? When will they strike? Who will survive their terrorism?
Intrigue of the heart and intrigue of the times are only part of this compelling story—Book 3 of the Deer Run Saga. This series finale is a gripping mix of romance and deception, faith and forgiveness, transgression and trial.
So friends, get ready for a busy year of romance reading as you celebrate Valentine’s Day!
