​It figures.

Shannon finally has a life she loves with her own home and sheep on which she can dote when the inevitable happens… she does something nice and winds up married.
To a man who thinks her sheep should just be supper.

A man that’s lived his life in the woods. A man with a mother to live her. A man willing to stand up and protect her – even when she doesn’t need him to.

But especially when she does.

Hott Review:

​Fall into this awesome novel!
Now and Forever is one of the most action packed historic romance books I’ve read since… Well, the last book in this series.
I fell in love with both Shannon and Tucker on page one and could not put this book down! I found myself reading at the stop lights on the way to work, it was so enthralling.

Now and Forever

Fire and Ice

Author Bio:

My writing journey is similar to a lot of others. Boil it down to persistence, oh, go ahead and call it stubbornness. I just kept typing away. I think the reason I did it was because I’m more or less a dunce around people—prone to sit silently when I really ought to speak up(or far worse, speak up when I ought to sit silently).

So, I have all these things, I want to say, in my head; the perfect zinger to the rude cashier, which you think of an hour after you’ve left the store, the perfect bit of wisdom when someone needs help, which doesn’t occur to you until they solve their problems themselves, the perfect guilt trip for the kids, which you don’t say because you’re not an idiot. I keep all this wit to myself, much to the relief of all who know me, and then I write all my great ideas into books. It’s therapeutic if nothing else, and more affordable than a psychiatrist.

So then a very nice, oh so nice publishing company like Barbour Heartsong comes along and says, “Hey, we’ll pay you money for this 45,000 word therapy session.” That’s as sweet as it gets.
