My short novella (21K words, approx. 80 print pages) came out today. HER RISK TO TAKE is set on the Triple-H Ranch in Montana and features Sarah Sullivan and Cal Landon (who first appear in HER SANCTUARY). It's just a small taste of life on the ranch. I made it available in print with a RRP of $5.60, which is the lowest price I was allowed to make it. One of the reasons I did a print edition was to enter it in the RITA contest (delusional, I know), and the other reason was because some readers don't read in digital and I didn't want to disappoint anyone. But I feel it's expensive for what it is. Nothing I can do about it... Sorry.
If only ER doc Sarah Sullivan could get the ornery cowboy she’s loved since she was a girl to cooperate, she could move on with her life, and maybe even think about starting a family. But he’s pulling away, and she doesn’t know why. What she does know is that she can’t imagine life without him.
Ex-con Cal Landon lives in fear of the day his ugly past catches up with him and takes away the best thing he’s ever known—Sarah Sullivan. Cal would die to protect her, but she deserves better than a world-weary ranch hand. Even though it’s way past time for him to leave her family’s Montana spread, he can’t bring himself to let go.
When Sarah proposes at Christmastime, Cal has no choice but to walk away. Then a hostage crisis hurls Sarah into a life-and-death situation, and the love that made Cal leave sends him racing back to her side, straight into danger. He will get her out alive—or die trying.
