Lane Bennett’s life as a small town cop is pretty close to perfect. He’s got his dog, a pretty date when he needs one, and plenty of time to fish on the weekends. No other place can compare to his hometown and he’s happy to devote his life to keeping the folks of Liberty safe. When Marie passes away, Lane knows one of the best parts about living in Liberty is gone, along with the old Carnegie library. It needs repairs the city can’t afford and the city managers won’t pay the new flood insurance. It’s too bad but safety comes first.
When Daisy comes home for Marie’s funeral and hears the only safe place she knew as a child is going to close, she refuses to let it happen. She hatches a plan to save the old library, run the summer reading program, and keep Marie’s legacy alive.
Nothing can go wrong with this plan... Only that she's renting Lane's cabin, he's winning her heart, her dad wants to reconcile, and it just won't stop raining.
By the time the river jumps the banks, there's a whole lot more drama going in Liberty than a spring flood. The town pulls together to save the library, the quilt holds a startling secret, and two young people in love must decide if NEVER really means FOREVER.
She once vowed never to come home and he’s vowed never to leave. Daisy and Lane discover together that true love happens when you least expect it and you should 'never say never' in Liberty.
A contemporary Christian romance.

THE LAST LINE. THE LAST WORDS. THE LAST CHANCE.
Ifferon is one of the last in the bloodline of the dead god Telm, who mated with mortal women, and who imprisoned the Beast Agon in the Underworld. Armed with a connection to the estranged gods in the Overworld and a scroll bearing Telm's powerful dying words, he is tasked with ensuring the god's vital legacy: that Agon remain vanquished. Fear forces Ifferon to abandon his duty, but terror restores his quest when the forces of Agon find his hideaway in an isolated coastal monastery.
Weighed down by the worries of the world, but lifted up by the companions he encounters along the way, Ifferon embarks on a journey that encompasses the struggles of many peoples, the siege of many lands, and discoveries that could bring hope to some—or doom to all.
An epic fantasy set in a world replete with its own lands, races, languages, history and mythology. An immersive and lyrical tale with flawed and mysterious characters. A page-turner right up to the last page.
Enter the world of Iraldas. Answer the Call of Agon.
Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Children of Telm series special?
A - The world, the characters, and the story that drives those characters through that world. Iraldas is not just another fantasy realm; it's a place where gods are trapped like mortals, where the blood of deities intermingles with common folk, and where the stuff of legends is an everyday reality.
Readers can expect intense and nail-biting battles, unique and unusual characters, lyrical language that lifts and inspires, a magical world that is almost as alive as our own, and moments of hope and horror, which can move us to laughter or tears.
Q - Why is fantasy such an important genre?
A - I see fantasy as the modern heir of ancient mythology, the continuation of those tales that moved so many people in bygone days. The best fantasy novels not only offer us a means of escape, but help us better explore the real issues of the world, under the veil of symbol and myth.
I think this is why there are so many fantasy best sellers, in print or Kindle, because it answers to a core human need—the desire to understand ourselves and the world around us.
Q - So, what makes these books a must read?
A - Because the Children of Telm explores the premise that man and god are not so far apart as they might seem. The series brings readers across a vast and varied landscape, with many different races and cultures, and many different battles, which are part of one great war against one great enemy: the Beast Agon.
Entering Amazon's Fantasy Must Reads list is no mean feat either!
The bottom line: If you enjoy lots of action and suspense, intriguing characters, and a beautiful world you can escape to, then The Children of Telm series is for you.
Q - Can readers expect more stories set in Iraldas?
A - Definitely. I've been working on a few short stories called The Memory Magus, the first of which can be downloaded for free from my website. There will be more to follow, and I hope to flesh out the world of Iraldas even more in the months and years to come.
Thanks for reading!

Molly Bishop loves living in Manhattan and managing a boutique luxury hotel. She's about to be promoted to her dream job of General Manager, the role she's been striving for her entire career.
There's only one thing standing in her way.
The will of her childhood friend, Christian Ford's grandfather. She hasn't even seen Christian in over ten years, but a recent run-in with his grandfather during a rare visit home, resulted in a new condition to the will. Christian will only inherit the ranch he's been running and the real estate development business that he has expanded, if he marries Molly and stays married for at least six months.
This is what I would call a cozy romance, it's romantic and sweet and is set in a small fictional town about 30 miles from Bozeman, MT. Warning, if you prefer your stories with the bedroom doors wide open and the windows steamed up, you may be disappointed. :)
I love to cook and try new recipes and if you do too, you may want to check out the recipe I included at the end of the book, for Lazy Lobster Casserole, the dish that Molly serves her guests at the Rose Cottage Inn's first wine dinner. It's a recipe I know by heart and have made a million times and is great for special occasions. It's a holiday tradition in our family to have it every Christmas Eve. :)
***Also, please know that this book has a bit of a food focus, if you don't like cooking or talk of recipes, etc. this may not be a good fit for you.
Q & A with the Author
Q-This is a sweet western romance set in Montana with a marriage of convenience plot. Why Montana? Why a marriage of convenience? Hasn't that been done to death?
A-The setting of Montana is actually what came to me first. I was inspired by a close friend who moved to Bozeman in her late 30's because she'd visited the area once and it felt like home. She bought a kayak and joined a local kayak club to make friends and ended up meeting the love of her life. A year later married and now have a five month old baby boy. So now, to me, Bozeman means romance. :)
I grew up reading Harlequin category romances, and have always loved the marriage of convenience stories. I knew they were popular with western romances, with all the mail-order brides, and I wanted to put a modern spin on it. I loved the idea of a meddling grandfather who plays match-maker from the grave. Having the stipulation that Molly and Christian have to stay married for six months made the premise even more fun. I also have a soft spot for the idea of best friends (in this case former childhood best friends) who end up together.

Q-What writers have influenced you?
A-Where do I start? There are so many! There's a few main ones that come to mind who I really admire. Debbie Macomber is one. I love the sweet romances that she writes and the family focused women's fiction and continuing series. I first discovered her when she was writing for Silhouette and fell in love with her voice. I bought every Debbie Macomber book as soon as they were released. Maeve Binchy is another favorite. I love the warm cast of characters that populate her stories. Danielle Steel is another writer I really admire. My sister and I read all of her books as soon as they are released. We always know exactly what we are getting with her books, a sweet escape with likable people and a story you can't put down.

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.
Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they’re echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.
Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
If you’re looking for a young adult, historical, paranormal romance or all of the above involving fantasy, action, adventure, mystery, things that go bump in the night, time travel, blued eyed hunks, super powers, and creepy children (…sorry no kitchen sink), AND if you love books by Cassandra Claire, Stephanie Myers, Charlotte Bronte, Dean Koontz, or Jack the Ripper, this is the book for you!
