Sweet Cowboy Christmas


Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter.

Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder. But when his shiny life is turned on end just in time for Christmas, Chase knows he needs to reevaluate even if that means going home to Texas to endure his least favorite holiday.

When Mr. Tall, Dark, and Smoking Hot walks through her door at the Magic Box Guest Ranch, Faith Walker sees just another handsome, rich exec looking to play cowboy for a week—at her expense. She’s sure the grumpy, but sexy as hell Scrooge will put a crimp in her holly jolly plans. Until a sizzling kiss has her seeing him in a new light.

Chase is haunted by secrets, and even though it goes entirely against her “hands off the guests” rule Faith is tempted to help him leave the past behind. As the magic of the season swirls around them, she is determined to succeed because it because now she is certain one sweet, cowboy Christmas will never be enough.

I’m so happy you dropped by the little corner of my world that makes me dream, laugh, sigh, and is the very heart of who I am. So grab a seat (or a barstool if you’re so inclined) and have a look around my website. It’s loaded with book excerpts, and playlists, and of course, recipes. Hard to write a series of books called The Sugar Shack novels without a little something sweet on the side. And please stop back by in the future.

Happily yours,

Saying Goodbye to the Past and Starting a New Series

Posted at Oct 16, 2014 6:00 pm


When I began to write the Sweet, Texas series, I only had a vague idea beyond the first book, ANYTHING BUT SWEET, where things would go and how they would develop. I needed to know the town, because my heroine, Charli, planned to give it a makeover. And I needed to know my hero, Reno, because, well, he’s the hero. And I needed to know some of the secondary characters to keep the story interesting. Other than that I had no clue that a fashionista goat, or an eighty-plus-year-old cowboy Casanova with a huge schnozzola, or two old birds with orthopedic shoes and a lust for young men would become such important players in the series.

I loved the surprises that popped up along the way. And I definitely plan to be completely open to any and all revelations that pop up in the new series. However this time needs to be a little different. At least in the planning stages. This time there will be a secondary storyline that will appear in each book. And the home of my six new heroes will be epic! So while I’m currently getting to know the hot men my stories will revolve around, I’m also getting to create the entire world that they live in. And, of course, the pesky situation that will loom over each storyline.

While I’m going to miss hanging out with the Wilder brothers every day, I’m really looking forward to the new group of guys. A few of them are already tapping me on the head, wanting their story to be first. Okay, maybe that tapping is a little more like hammering, yelling, and shoving the others back. It’s going to be interesting to see which one wins the challenge. Whoever it is, I can promise he will be as confident, sexy, and alpha as those sexy Wilder brothers. Maybe even more.

Stay tuned.
