Dear Reader,

I admire entrepreneurs. Those among us who can see a need, brainstorm a way to fulfill it, and then figure out a way to actually make it happen.

Rose McCabe is one of those self-made-women. She took a need—finding a way to economically feed her triplets--then went to local farmers and cut a deal that soon benefited everyone in the community. For Rose, seeing any food go to waste is a crying shame. And that’s why it’s killing her to see a long abandoned blackberry grove go untended, and even worse, unharvested!

Sexy former rodeo champion and cattle and horse rancher Clint McCulloch is the new owner of the land that luscious fruit resides on. He wants to mow the bushes down and turn the land back to pasture for his herd. Until Rose McCabe steps in, and wheels and deals their way to a solution. One that Clint sees as temporary, and Rose would like to last forever.

The real question is: Can Rose negotiate their way to love? Or is theirs a life-long deal that will never be made?

For more information on this and other titles, please visit me at Facebook or

Happy reading!

Lone Star

I grew up in farm country, in the Midwest. One of my favorite summer activities was picking blackberries, raspberries and black raspberries with my family. We used to have competitions to see who could get the fullest bucket—and avoid the spiders and ants and chiggers that lived in those wonderful bushes. When we got the berries home, we cleaned and froze most of them for use during the cold winter months. But we also made blackberry jam, and my favorite--blackberry cobbler.

I've added my favorite recipe for blackberry cobbler to my recipe page. Click here to check it out. You can also download a recipe card.
