The Yellow Rose Sisters have arrived!

Calla Rose returned home to McKenna Springs to help save her family's business... The Yellow Rose... a ninety-year old Texas dance hall. She also came home to heal. Being a victim and finding her trust level in men damaged, she is determined to succeed in this one thing for her family and nothing is going to deter her from doing just that. Now even a green-eyed cowboy/mayor with heart-stopping smiles and kisses that threaten to thaw the ice around her heart.
Ty Conners wasn't looking for love. He had simply stopped in to welcome the latest business owner to town. But coming face to face with Calla Rose would prove an unforgettable experience in more ways than one and send his heart into a tailspin. Never a man to not face a challenge head-on, he prepared to get past the barricades she had erected between herself and the male population. But it was easier said than done, and just when he's within reach of her heart, a lie brings memories of pain and distrust and Calla's heart may be out of his reach for good.

"Sheriff's Department! Raise your hands above your head and don't move."

She’s a runaway bride who left her two-timing fiance at the altar. He’s a county sheriff determined to keep the peace in his country and leave city girls alone after his own fiance left him for the bright lights of the city. Neither of them planned on running straight into each other...over a burning wedding dress.

Ellie and Lucas planned on never trusting their hearts to love again. When danger follows her from the city, the sheriff must do his duty to protect her. However, it isn’t long before he discovers the real danger may be to his heart. Ellie just might teach him that even a city girl can be a country girl at heart.

J.D. Sterling shook the dirt of the small Texas town from his boot heels a dozen years before. Now, he’s returned… not as the poor country boy who left to follow his dream, but as country music’s sexy superstar. He has everything he always wanted except for the girl who holds his heart. Mandy.

Years come and go and people change. Amanda Lawson has grown up. From heartbreak and struggling to survive to becoming a successful businesswoman, she has taught herself to never look back. Once before, she had survived the wild, green-eyed cowboy with only a guitar to his name and a pocketful of dreams. Then he left her behind with nothing but his hollow vows and a shattered heart.

Mandy was his muse. J.D. was her dream. But tragedy and broken vows can be insurmountable obstacles. Can they find their way home to each other again… or is it too late?

Meet Annie, Trace, and Travis… the Cartwrights of Cartwright’s Crossing, Texas. In this prequel that introduces you to them, you’ll get a preview into their lives and what brought them to their own searches for happily-ever-after’s. 

Trace, world-champion bronc rider, began the Cartwright saga with his story… Claiming the Maverick’s Heart (inspirational romance). He left his fiancé standing on the steps of the church with a Dear Jane letter in her hand. It took him a while to grow up and realize that his heart had remained behind with her and he needed to find out if a second chance with his one and only love could be the answer to his prayer.

Trouble Rides a Horse (contemporary romance) introduces Travis, the oldest of the Cartwright siblings. He took on the raising of his young siblings and the reins of running the Cartwright ranch all at the same time. He had to grow up fast and there wasn’t time for the frivolities of youth or anything else. He needs a nudge to find that special woman who could match him step-for-stubborn-step. Annie gets involved and advertises online for just such a person for him and sparks fly in more ways than one.

Annie’s story, The Neighborly Thing to Do (contemporary romance), ends the trilogy. Annie’s luck has been bad when it comes to catching bridal bouquets. This time, she tosses it away to the new fire marshal in town. She isn’t in the market for another romance, but her new tenant might just change her mind. While his job is putting out fires, he has an uncanny knack in starting a blaze within her. But is he all he seems or will she be duped again and her heart left in pieces? 

Erin McKenzie knew what she wanted. To write and publish her novel. First, she had to take an assignment from her editor…write an expose’ of an online dating service and its clients… How hard could it be to find a lonely rancher tired of just talking to his cows all day? That changes when she finds herself rescued by a tall, sexy, cowboy…a true man of few words.
The rancher has no time for city females, much less those who end up on his doorstep claiming she had met him online and was there to see if they were ‘compatible.’ It wasn’t too hard to figure out his matchmaking sister had been the one to go online and find him a candidate for a wife. He should send the redhead spitfire packing but something made him come up with another plan. He would teach her a lesson first. He would show her how hard it would be to be a real rancher’s wife and send her running away on the first day.
Earis didn’t run. Travis didn’t back down. They faced off in their own showdown of wills and undeniable attraction. But what would happen if Travis found out the truth of why she was really on his doorstep? What happens when Erin realizes that she doesn’t yearn for the big city lights any longer but unending vistas beside a cowboy who can’t abide liars? The story she was sent to write might not have a happy ending after all.

Annie Cartwright glared at the bridal bouquet next to her on the front seat of the vehicle. She had a history of catching bride’s bouquets… but not on purpose. They just seemed to hone in on her with their bad luck spell to cast over her life. At least, that’s where she placed the blame. Now, she was going to have to change the sudden flat tire in a bridesmaid’s dress and look like the idiot she felt.
Clint Daniels was the new fire marshal on his way to his assignment in Cartwright’s Crossing. At first, he thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he spies a beautiful woman standing on the side of the road in a green ball gown. Of course, being the gentleman, he had to stop and render aid. And he soon found a pair of emerald eyes had captured more than just his interest.
Annie had her fill of lying males in her life. But her heart told her to take a chance with this sexy knight in shining armor. Only Clint has a couple of secrets of his own and those just might ruin his chances with Annie forever. Or would he be able to persuade her that the next bridal bouquet in her future might be the luckiest one of all?
