Sweet Historical Romance/Western
The Express took men and rode them hard across the West. That adventuring spirit belonged to men full of life, ready for whatever met them on the trail, everything, except for love. Ellis Cooper found himself in with a bad crowd and when the going got tough, the others left… left him to rot in jail. Finally released from prison, his uncle found him a job with the Pony Express. He’s determined to live on the straight and narrow. It wasn’t just to avoid getting on the wrong side of the new marshal, Thomas Halston. Ellis wanted to do the right thing because the Marshal’s pretty daughter makes him wish he could go back and change all of his bad decisions and make them right. But how is a lawman going to trust his only daughter to a man who spent time behind bars? Virginia Halston wonders if her father’s new home will become one for her as well. That includes some rather disconcerting moments with the new express rider. Everyone seems to warn her away from Ellis, but there’s something in his eyes that only make her want to get closer to him. Is it so wrong for her to give him a little bit of her heart when he’s trying so hard to do the right thing for once in his life? While it seems like everyone is trying to keep Ellis and Virginia apart, they’re only getting closer. As some of his old acquaintances try to draw him back into the darkness, Ellis has to make a decision: stand up against them and lose Virginia, or lose his soul forever?
A sweet historical romance centered around the pony express.
A truly sweet romance of hardworking Ellis coming to Three Rivers to focus on his future and put his criminal past behind him. He struggles a bit to fit in and not everyone was welcoming. Virginia, also new to town, gives him the chance to prove himself trustworthy. A sweet romance with likeable characters and a story that leaves you with a smile.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Love – Romance – Books Aren’t they all the same thing? Oh, I sure hope so! I’ve been reading romance books for what seems like forever. When I was a teen, the days that I wasn’t in dance class after school I’d go to the mall to wait for my mom to finish work for the day and my haunt of choice… Waldenbooks. (I think I just showed my age there.) Whether it was Scottish Lairds, Medieval Knights, Regency Gents, Rough and Tumble Cowboys, or handsome modern Heroes, I loved them all! There was always another hero and heroine to follow through page after page of breathless love! I really hope that my readers will enjoy some of the same thrills as discover characters to love between the pages of my books.
