The Prodigal Brother Returns
Strawberry Ridge Book One

Release date September 12, 2024 -
It’s time to go home…

Sixteen years after being kicked off the family ranch, widower Blake Lohmen is called home. There’s been an accident and his family needs his help. The timing’s not ideal. A children’s book author, he’s on a tight book deadline and responsible for the care of his wife’s much younger brother. But maybe this is his chance for Blake to make the amends he’d promised.

Following a divorce, traveling nurse and single mom Malorie Harper is not in the market for a man. She and her twins desperately need a change of scenery so she eagerly accepts a summer job offer at a Colorado ranch. The cute small town and gorgeous pastoral scenery framed by mountains feel like a balm to her soul. But on her first day, she walks into a family brawl where her patient nearly falls out of bed while aiming a right hook at her twins’ favorite author.

The uncertain beginning suggests a new chapter for all of them, but can Blake overcome the past,

Sometimes, love doesn't go according to plan.

Sage Dawson loves her job as a cruise director or did. When her current guy (Shipmate, Gordan Simen) turns out to have feet of clay, a broken heart takes her back to Wally Creek and the comfort of her grandparents' loving support. What she gets instead is the house she grew up in as they take off for a new life in Arizona, four seventy-something tenants who have a plan of their own for her future, and Luke Marshell, a sleek, polished, uncompromising businessman who, for some reason, she can't fathom, is convinced she's after his great-uncle's retirement fund.

Under other circumstances, Luke would be a girl's dream guy, but not Sage's. The man is an uncompromising workaholic and not user-friendly. The only thing worse than getting surprised by a sneaker wave on the way into the dock is standing by doing nothing while her heart makes another disastrous mistake.

Only pockets of humans survived the destruction of Mother Earth. In the resulting post-apocalyptic world, Darwin changelings (those who are not humanborn) emerged from hiding, struggling alongside humans to reclaim their former glory. It is during this time that Logan and Beyla—dragon and shadow thief, enemies from the beginning of time, are forced to join forces to defeat a growing evil. Fighting a desire that flames out of their control, together with their kin, they scramble to keep a weapon of incredible destructive power out of the hands of an enemy who would use it to destroy all that is left of their clans.

The tale that follows is taken from the Dragonborn Chronicles.

From Dragons Walk, perched in the highest mountain peaks in what is now called the Colorado Territory, to Avalon above the eastern waters, the ancestral home of the Dragonborn, the battle is just beginning…

The Fake Marriage Proposal 

"Susan’s fifth book in her Angel Point series was fantastic! Wynne Olsen is looking for a fresh start in California but first, she has to help her sister with her wedding and find her replacement for Angel Point’s city attorney. Single dad Brett Macauley is a handsome distraction but he’s not looking for love, too busy raising his daughter and getting his veterans village up and running. Wynne and Brett find themselves thrown together when Brett’s daughter convinces her to help them keep her best friend out of the foster system. I loved this one so much. This story has everything from the cozy small-town vibe to intelligent, tweens determined to get their way and two people determined not to fall in love but find themselves falling hard." ~ sara, Instagram
