The Capulets and the Montagues had nothing on the Ryders and the Morgans! But despite the fact that each one was from one of the rival ranching families, Jenny Ryder and Win Morgan had a passionate summer affair four years ago—one that resulted in pregnancy. They got married and promptly lost the baby. Heartbroken, Jenny let herself be talked into divorcing Win…without ever having revealed the marriage to her family—or his.

Now Jenny's back, and one impulsive night means that Jenny and Win are about to be parents again! This time, they have to fess up. Their future happiness and child depend on it. But Win is keeping his own secret—that "divorce" he and Jenny supposedly got might not be worth the paper it (wasn't!) printed on….

December, 2011

A YULETIDE BRIDE?

Shana Callahan had long ago given up wishful thinking. A single mom with a checkered past, she knew to be grateful for small gifts. And what Landon Kincaid had given her was far more than that. His unexpected job offer had provided her with so much—a good income, a safe home for her child and the opportunity to start anew in Chance City.

She’d insisted on keeping things strictly business, but the more she got to know her charismatic boss, the harder it became to be his “almost wife.” The town gossip was almost unbearable, but even worse was fighting the longing she felt for Kincaid. Would their December tryst ruin everything...or grant them the ultimate gift?

Keri Overton thought her one night of passion with Jake McCoy would be her only memory of him—until she discovered she was pregnant with his child. Fortunately, a safe haven beckoned: Jake’s hometown of Chance City. Too bad he was out of town. Permanently, it seemed.

THEN COMES MARRIAGE...AND LOVE?

But imagine her surprise at a surprise baby-shower guest: the child’s father! And everyone expected these “soul mates” to marry, so marry they did. Could their in-name-only union possibly turn into the real thing?

“Oh, the classic one night stand leads to a baby and the dad doesn't know story, right? Well, I was pleasantly surprised that this had a bit of a twist to that storyline. ... How they get to that though, is a good story.”

--Lisa, Under the Covers


“There is a load of depth to this 200-page tale, more than some full-length novels. It is engaging and has two mature, sensible but vulnerable adults as the main characters. The Pregnant Bride Wore White is a very good story. Enjoy.”

Romance Reviews Today



"The characters are well-rounded and well-developed. ...The underlying plot was intriguing and the author kept me guessing about the circumstances of Quinn's life until she skillfully dropped it into the story. ...The opening hook captured my interest right away and the depth of emotion kept me reading til I'd turned the last page."
