Inspirational Romance

Available now–all eight novellas of my Hearts Crossing Ranch series gathered into one, including the never before published CROSS YOUR HEART. Live the love, feel the joy, and spread the faith of the Martin siblings of Hearts Crossing Ranch in Mountain Cove, Colorado. The series was inspired by my own city-slicker wagon train trip, as well as challenges from my own life and loved ones. (All but the final story in the saga are also available singly.)


Here’s a scrapbook page of the the whole Martin bunch. Scroll down to the links.
