Synopsis | Teaser | The Series | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


Pamela Landers had it all, a senior partnership with a top law firm, expensive car, and a luxurious condo. What she desired most was a loving husband, children and a life filled with precious memories that would comfort her through her golden years.

Funny how fate has a way of steering you down that path where dreams really can come true. When Pamela encounters Gavin Templeton along her journey, she has some life-altering decisions to make that eventually lead her to the happily ever after she always dreamed of.

Teaser: Excerpt

Chapter One

      Pamela’s silver CLS Mercedes Coupe hugged the mountainous, snowy terrain of Route 66 like an Indianapolis 500 race car. It was an expression of her accomplishments. A little pricy, perhaps but, well-deserved. Driving it was beyond scintillating.
      Pamela really was not all about status but, she worked hard, and at the age of thirty-one, she finally acquired the title of senior partner at the law offices of McNeil and Ryan.
      Her specialty was wrongful death and she was damned good at what she did. It was beyond being driven. She was a “Joan of Arc” for those families, who lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, criminal intent, accidental liability, or stupidity. She was passionate about proving justice, above all else, winning her clients a sizable settlement, and some sense of closure, so they could move forward in their lives.
      Ever since she lost her parents in a freak bridge accident at the age of thirteen, she knew this was the course she wanted her life to take. She lived through the hell of loss. Her grandparents spiraled to poverty from lawyers, who sucked their life from their souls and the dollars from their bank accounts. After years of deliberations, all was lost to them. The negligence was undeniable; the evidence was all in their favor. But because of a small technicality and grave error made by her grandparents’ law firm, the case was dismissed.
      Pamela never forgot what that did to her family. It compelled her to excel in school and graduate at the top of her class at Harvard.
      Her palm glided over the rich leather texture of her steering wheel, as she reflected back on her accomplishments.
      “Where have the years gone,” she sighed? In a couple of years, she could be a full partner. It sounded good. Was it what she really wanted though after all the long hours, sleepless nights, lonely holidays and special occasions she spent alone; along with the loveless and empty relationships she endured?
      It had been a long time, since she went on a holiday. The end of Winter was approaching, and she wanted to hit the slopes ever since she bought herself a new pair of skis for Christmas. She wasn’t an expert, but she liked a good run downhill like anyone else. This was the last chance she had before Spring arrived.
      A large billboard caught her attention.
      “Been a long time for that!” She professed, chuckling. “Maybe if I’m lucky, I’ll meet a dashing stranger while I’m here.”
      She shook her head half believing it could happen. Success truly wasn’t everything, when you didn’t have someone to rejoice in it with. Still, she looked forward to her skiing holiday. Romance, or, no romance. A vacation for her was long overdue, and she resolved herself to the fact that delicious meals, great snow, and lots of sleep would do just fine.

She was raised on a horse ranch in Wyoming. He was raised in the Highlands of Scotland. They were opposites in so many ways, each never expecting to cross paths with the other.

About the Author

My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family. It wasn't until much later in life I actually took up the pen to write my first historical romance, Wind Warrior. I really don't fit into one specific niche. Once a story starts to flow, it's only then I know what genre/sub-genre it will fit under.

I have only one regret, and that is not getting to this point in my career much sooner, rather than later. Life has a way of setting up road blocks, which for me, was supposed to work out that way. Because of those detours, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer, allowing me to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel.

It is my hope you walk away with not just an entertaining read, but the importance in knowing, "Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities."
