New Release “The Legend of Lollipop”

New Release

Hello friends and readers.  I hope you have a blessed Easter celebration surrounded by family, friends, the Lord’s presence, and great food!  Spring is here and I’m anxious to get out in my garden and plant flowers and veggies.  Before you know it, summer will be here and then I’ll want to swim as much as possible.  That is, when I’m not writing or reading books.

I’m excited to share my newest release with you, The Legend of Lollipop, Book 20 from the ‘Whispers in Wyoming’ series. The book can easily be read as a stand-alone. If you love a good horse story and sweet, inspirational romance with a Christian theme of winning, this book is for you.  Here’s a look at the beautiful cover.

Here’s the blurb–:

Anastasia isn’t the least bit interested in a romance with Jed when her sister’s job placement agency sends her to work as a temp at The Sweetwater Ranch bakery. She finally has a chance to make one of her dreams come true by doing a great job managing the bakery. Maybe she’ll even get to ride the horses on the Wyoming ranch in her leisure time, or catch a glimpse of the wild horses she longs to own.

Jed’s laid back, fun-loving personality hasn’t helped him find a woman to settle down with, but he’s perfectly content working as a wrangler at The Sweetwater. However, he can’t deny the attraction he has for the new bakery manager when he meets Anastasia.


Landon, a prominent, esteemed horse trainer with notable success in quarter horse racing, arrives at The Sweetwater for one purpose only. A legendary horse and her three-year-old filly have been spotted there in recent weeks. He’s determined to capture the renowned horses. He finds himself distracted when Jed and Anastasia introduce him to her sister, Trisha, owner of a job placement service who takes her career as seriously as he does his own.

Will this matchmaking couple, Jed and Anastasia, fall in love? And what of the legendary horses? Will they become the crowning glory of Landon’s extensive collection? Get your copy of this stand-alone Contemporary Christian Western Romance today! Clean, sweet, and romantic, don’t miss this inspirational adventure.

Some tips to make this story a more enjoyable read for you–:


A) In addition to the main characters of Jed and Anastasia, the character of Landon Callahan in this story was loosely inspired by prominent American horse trainer, Wayne Lukas. Wayne has raced and trained both quarter horses and thoroughbreds. If you watch the Kentucky Derby coming up on May 4th, might even hear his name.


B) In my research, I discovered there is a Triple Crown trio of horse races for not only thoroughbreds which race at the Derby here in Kentucky at Churchill Downs, but also for quarter horse racing.  These races take place at Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico.

Thoroughbreds, which originated in England, are ideal for long distance racing of about 1 and 1/4 miles. They are generally taller than quarter horses. Quarter horses are stockier, shorter, and strong. They are ideal horses for sprinting. They can sprint 440 yards in about twenty seconds.

For the purpose of this story, I made up some fictional racing tracks and races, including a track in Cheyenne, and some characters to go along with this.


C) You’ll also meet Trisha Halston in this story. She owns Halston Staffing and was inspired by the many years in which I worked in the job placement and human resources industry.


D) There are many characters in this story, but you’ll also meet one named Riley. If you watch this Britt Nicole video called “Pave,” my inspiration for Riley is the little girl in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU71JOa_810

I hope you love this story and enjoy horses as much as I do.  I spent part of my childhood growing up on a farm where we had horses, a cow named Daisy, and chickens.  Have you ever been to Wyoming or Yellowstone where the setting of this story is?  Tell me how your Easter was, or perhaps you have a horse or farm story to share with us.  Or, maybe you have a favorite dessert to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Here’s the link to the book.  Enjoy!

In other news, here’s my latest new release and contribution to the “Whispers in Wyoming” series, a contemporary Christmas Inspirational and Christian western romance, All That Glitters.  Although this is book 16, it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.

All That Glitters_Nook.jpg

Nicole, the heroine in the story, is an actress from Santa Monica who decides to spend Christmas at The Sweetwater ranch in Wyoming with her daughter, Amy, to consider a proposal from her boyfriend, Drew, the billionaire architect of her acting career and owner of a studio and Hollywood legacy.  Enter, Jack Colten, a handsome new wrangler at the ranch.

In the following scene, Nicole has been ice skating and showing off some of her talents at the rink.  During a jump and spinning move, she landed wrong and fell, injuring her ankle badly.  Here’s a brief excerpt from “All That Glitters.”–:

Turning to Jack, Amy said, “Cowboy Jack, I’m so glad you’re here to help my mommy walk to the van.”
“I don’t think she’s going to be able to walk. I’ll just carry her. Nicole, put your arms around my neck and on the count of three. Ready?” Jack’s tone of authority left her no time to protest. What single girl wouldn’t mind wrapping their arms around such a handsome man anyhow? She did what he instructed and clasped her hands together behind his neck, her heart beating rapidly.
“One, two, three.” He scooped her up in seconds as if she weighed a feather. “Amy, will you…”
Eight-year-old Amy held up a hand toward Jack to silence him, finishing his sentence. “Talk to the hand, Cowboy Jack. I know, return the rental skates, get our stuff, and meet you at the van. Got it, get it, good!”
He shook his head and chuckled, pausing with her in his arms. “Man, she is smart as a whip!”
“See what I go through?” Nicole rolled her eyes and then Amy skated away to do everything needed. “Don’t forget my purse!”
“I won’t, Mom!” Amy called over one shoulder, nearly colliding with the wall on the edge of the rink.
“Watch where you’re going, and be careful!” Nicole called out as the handsome wrangler carried her to the van.
“I’ll be careful!” Amy called back.
“Yeah, what your mom said,” Jack added softly as he looked down at her and their eyes met, causing her to blush.
When he placed her in the front passenger seat of The Sweetwater van used to drive guests around the small city of Lander, his lips nearly brushed hers as he set her down. She could feel his warm breath on her lips and hear his heart beating against her own chest. She could tell by the look in his eyes they were both sorry the moment had come to an end.
He pulled away to help other passengers and gently closed the door. Nicole bit her lip and settled reluctantly into the seat, observing him closely when he walked around to the driver’s side. There was intense attraction pulling the two of them together. The pull was stronger than she’d first believed, and she reckoned it was a force they were both going to face at some point, soon. For the first time, she realized Jack knew it, too. His brown eyes said everything words couldn’t yet. At least she had the drive back to the ranch to look forward to. Maybe the handsome wrangler would finally talk to her, really talk to her. Deep down, she realized it was what she’d been hoping for since the first time she saw Jack Colten.
“All That Glitters” is free for KU readers or $2.99 to purchase for the Kindle version. Be sure to get your copy today.
