Book 1 – Crystal Ridge Series

  • “It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.” ― Leo TolstoyThe Kreutzer Sonata Tolstoy helped create the idea for Never Pick a Pretty Girl. I would change one word in his quote – “It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is shallow.” for today’s world.

Disillusioned with love, career and life in general, Sophie Donnelly retreats to her childhood home.  Back in Crystal Ridge her plan is disrupted by the man next door.  Her senses are assaulted by the ruggedly handsome, hard-working Jake.  How can she convince him she is not just another pretty woman?

Jake McCallum wanted Sophie in high school.  Sophie all grown stirs his heart.  But he has decided he needs a plain, practical gal who can help run his ranch.  Sophie is too pretty to be practical.  His head says so.  Which will he follow?  His head or his heart?

One Dance with a Stranger - Front Cover

Emily feels it is important to hide her sordid past. Love has no part in her new life. Her job and her respectable fiance are achievements that she has no intentions of jeopardizing. No one knows she once posted for a nude magazine and she will do anything needed to keep it that way. Why would she even think of risking everything to follow her heart’s desire – charismatic, fickle Wade Hart? A man who knows all her dark, deep secrets?

Country singing idol, Wade doesn’t question why he is attracted to his brother’s fiancee. He just knows he will have her. He is used to getting whatever he desires. Today he wants Emily.

Set in the ‘new west’ – Calgary – follow the twisted path of love and romance, too potent to resist.
