Today The Lost Sheenan’s Bride releases, and its a bittersweet day. I confess, I put off writing The Lost Sheenan’s Bride for a long, long time. It wasn’t because I didn’t like or know the story, but because I knew when it was finished, my The Taming of the Sheenans series would be complete, and it broke my heart a little bit. These tough Montana brothers have been with me for three years now. I started the first, Brock’s Christmas at Copper Mountain, late summer 2013, and here we are, summer of 2016 saying goodbye.
I love connected stories, especially stories about families. My family is my world, and when I lost my dad at fifteen, it was my close relationship with my two brothers and sister that saw me through the loss and grief. Whenever I write about family, there is struggle and challenge, as well as change. Change is part of life. We can’t avoid it. Which is why I create strong families that might not always see eye to eye, but when the chips are down, they show up to support each other through good times and bad.
Thankfully, endings also become beginnings, and with the closing of the Taming of the Sheenans, I introduce my new series, The Douglas Ranch of Paradise Valley. From reading The Taming of the Sheenans, you know the Sheenans and the Douglases lives are interwined. They aren’t just neighbors, McKenna Douglas and Trey Sheenan were high school sweethearts and have a complicated relationship (The Kidnapped Christmas Bride), and now with the The Douglas Ranch of Paradise Valley, you’ll get the rest of the story, beginning December 1st with Away in Montana, a historical story that tells you about the first Douglas and how he came to be in Marietta.
I love to hear from you. Please drop me a note any time to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me what you think of my new story. Also, if you haven’t yet, please sign up for my newsletter so you can hear about all my future releases.

Thank you so very much for being part of my world. I cherish each of you….you’re my reader but also my friend. Sending you tons of love this weekend. Happy summer! Happy reading!
PS I have to tell you….I kind of refuse to accept that this The Lost Sheenan’s Bride is really, truly the last Sheenan story…is there a reason we can’t have a prequel…or maybe, a Sheenan Family Christmas? What about a Sheenan Carrigan Reunion? Hmmm….? 🙂
