It was supposed to be a vacation, a time to save her marriage, but what
Joan Clayton hadn’t counted on was Murphy’s Law of Vail Mountain
and the secrets that had damaged her marriage beyond repair. It was
over. Depressed and angry, she decided to venture directly into an
oncoming snowstorm, one that would be known as the blizzard of the century.
Stephen Brockheart received the call concerning a missing tourist after
working 26 hours straight. A park ranger for the mountain resort, he
set out on the routine mission, knowing he was running out of time as
the blizzard hit with visibility zero. What he hadn’t counted on
was saving a beautiful woman and falling for her, a city girl who
knew nothing about the dangers of the mountain. He had been there
before and vowed never to return.
As Mother Nature raged, Joan was soon overcome by the feelings a
complete stranger evoked in her, causing her to reevaluate her own
life. Through the blizzard and stranded at the resort, death was
imminent for any who would try to leave. Despite loss and secrets,
can two people find love and happiness again?
Can they be given a second chance to make it real and lasting, or will
that chance die with them?

give up. It’s only a matter of time before the truth is revealed
and the stakes turn deadly.
Can Nina and Rob hold it together when nature and man turn against

truly felt alive. However, her troubles soon follow her, and she gets

criminals that plague New York City. He resigns from the police force
after a drug bust goes wrong, landing himself in the hospital to face
his mortality alone. Uncertain about the direction of his life, he
learns of the new sheriff position on Vail Mountain and takes a
gigantic leap of faith—faith that he isn’t making a big mistake.

find himself falling hard for a woman whose blue eyes speak of pain

I have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write
both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many
influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not
help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa
Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura
Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list
by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my
desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my
dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year
old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful
of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty
of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my
laptop and coffee close by.
