He never imagined her heart would be so hard to reach.

Forced into a marriage of convenience after her husband dies, Amanda Haynes is determined she will never love again. Not that it bothers Brandon Miller. He needs her husband’s cattle. She needs financial stability and long-term support for her son and herself. But she never expected to care so much about the running of the ranch.

Butting heads over the decisions of the ranch, adding to her frustration and grief at her loss. Her wellbeing is soon threatened as their lives become entangled with Billy the Kid and his gang. What has she gotten herself into? What kind of man has she married? Is there any way out?

Author Q&A

What are four things you can’t live without?
"My laptop, my family, my tablet (with my downloaded books), and my phone."
What is your favorite television show?
"Probably “The Big Bang Theory”…such a fun and funny escape from the daily stuff."
If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why?
"My first reaction was Elizabeth Bennet because she gets her Mr. Darcy in the end – true love overcomes! But then I thought about her crazy family that she has had to deal with…but then I remember Jane and what a sweet sister friendship they have….I think I’d have to go with my first instinct…crazy family and all…everyone has one."
What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?
"A sequel to my debut novel “The Lady Bornekova”. It is called “The Lady and The Hussites”. I know my readers have been waiting and watching for this book for quite some time. They will not be disappointed as their favorite characters return and work to overcome challenges as the Hussite Wars settle over the Czech lands."
What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?
"“Riveting Your Reader with A Deep Point of View” was one of my favorite craft books. And two authors – Joanne Bischof and Melanie Dickerson have influenced my desire to write in a deeper point of view. They really draw the reader in to the character’s thoughts and feelings. It’s amazing."

About the Author

Sara is originally from Middle Tennessee. After a short stint in Memphis, where she earned a degree in Biology and began a career as both a Zoo Educator and a Sleep Technician, she then followed a dream to work for a large zoo in Orlando, FL as an Educator.

Once she and her husband started their family, they moved back to Middle Tennessee where they currently reside. Sara and her husband now enjoy a full life with their three beautiful and very active children.

She enjoys many creative outlets – singing, piano, drawing, drama, and organizing anything. And even though she has enjoyed her career as a Zoo Educator, Sara's great love of the written word continued to draw her to write. She has always been an avid reader and, for many years, has been what she terms a “closet writer”. Her travels and love of history have served to inspire her to write clean Historical Romance. Sara has made several trips to the Czech Republic. Her time among the Czech people and the landscapes of the country inspired her and greatly influenced her work on her debut novel, The Lady Bornekova, set in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic.

Sara is also the author of The General’s Wife, Off to War, Hope in Cripple Creek, and A Convenient Risk and a member of ACFW.
