Since my first book will hit the bookstores on January 1st, I thought I'd share a little about the book, No Place For A Lady. It's the first in the series, Heart of the West. The story takes place in Colorado, one of my favorite places in the US. Historically, not very many women went on cattle drives, but my heroine surprises everyone by doing just that!
Longing for a new start, Crystal Clark arrives amid the splendor of the high country, just after the death of her father. She's relieved to be leaving her troubles behind to visit her aunt's cattle ranch. Despite being raised as a proper Southern belle, Crystal is determined to hold her own in this wild land--even if a certain handsome foreman named Luke Weber doubts her abilities.
Just when she thinks she's getting a handle on the constant male attention from the cowhands and the catty barbs from some of the local young women, tragedy strikes. And saving the ranch from a greedy neighboring landowner means Crystal must take charge of a cattle drive, ready or not. Can she rise to the challenge? Or will she head back to Georgia defeated?
I hope you'll read my book to find out how Crystal manages to change and adapt and grow stronger spiritually.
