2020 Books & News

Coming June 16th in paperback and July 1 in e-book from Harlequin Special Edition: A FAMILY FOR A WEEK. At a big week-long family reunion at the Dawson Guest Ranch, a 99-year-old great-grandmother mistakes Sadie, a single mom of a toddler, and confirmed bachelor Axel Dawson for a newly engaged couple. Sadie and Axel go along with the ruse for the week . . . with many surprises. This is the third book of my 6-book miniseries, Dawson's Family Ranch, about six siblings and their Wyoming dude ranch. Lots of romance, smart heroines, some sexy cowboys, the mountains of Wyoming, and love...

Another novel is coming this summer. In July, look for my contribution to the new Montana Mavericks miniseries, What Happened to Beatrix: THE COWBOY'S COMEBACK. And then another Dawson Family Ranch novel in October/November: THE LONG AWAITED CHRISTMAS WISH about a U.S. Marshal who finds a 15 year-old letter to Santa in a bottle . . . and unexpected love.

Also available now from Harlequin Special Edition: FOR THE TWINS' SAKE (Book 1 of The Dawson Family Ranch), about a couple reunited by a baby left on a cowboy's doorstep; and Book 2: WYOMING SPECIAL DELIVERY, about how a brand new baby changes the lives of a mysterious guest at the ranch and a single mama.

2019 was a FIVE book year, all from Harlequin Special Edition. In January, Harlequin published a new multi-author miniseries called FUREVER PAWS, set at a North Carolina animal rescue. In my contribution, book 1, A NEW LEASH ON LOVE, an adorable puppy and a three-legged senior mutt help former high school sweethearts get a second chance at love almost two decades later. In March, TO KEEP HER BABY, about a pregnant young woman who fears a custody battle and is determined to transform herself in a "suitable" young mother. She enrolls at an etiquette school and ends up transforming the life of a buttoned-up businessman. This is another one of my favorites, with a VERY different heroine. In June, A PROMISE FOR THE TWINS about a former solider who comes home to Wyoming to fulfill a promise. RUST FALLS CREEK CINDERELLA, in July, is my contribution to the 2019 Montana Mavericks series Six Brides for Six Brothers (book 2). And a holiday-themed novel, A WYOMING CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER (my 25th novel for Harlequin!) featuring a woman with amnesia who can't remember her husband, in mid October.

You can read my holiday novella, SANTA'S PLUS-ONE SURPRISE, at the Harlequin website. Look for it under Online Reads.

Did you know I also wrote seven novels for Harlequin Special Edition under the name Meg Maxwell in 2016 and 2017?
