2022 Books & News

Coming in late August: ONE NIGHT WITH THE MAVERICK, my emotional, funny, sexy contribution to the 2022 Harlequin Special Edition Montana Mavericks series. Next up in late October: SANTA'S TWIN SURPRISE, part of my Dawson Family Ranch series for Harlequin Special Edition. My latest book: HEIR TO THE RANCH, also part of my Dawson Family Ranch, is about a cowboy whose unwanted inheritance from the late father who never acknowledged him comes with a 9-months-pregnant administrative assistant who changes his life.

My books are emotional, full of romance and heart, and set in Wyoming ranch country with a strong sense of community and a focus on finding family in all forms. Of course, there's usually a dog too. 2023 brings more novels, beginning with a Special Edition about secret identical twins, mistaken identity, and surprises in late January.

Published this past February (2022): HOME IS WHERE THE HOUND IS, set at a North Carolina pet rescue and featuring a reunion romance, a sweet senior basset hound named Meatball, a little drama, and lots of romance. Look for a new book in this 6-book series, Furever Yours (now in its second season), written by a different author every month. Want a list of all my Dawson Family Ranch books? See below. The first six books are best read in order. Starting with Book 7, His Baby No Matter What, about a widowed businessman who discovers his baby son isn't his biologically and travels to his late wife's best friend's alpaca farm for answers, the books can be read in any order.

Did you know I also wrote seven novels for Harlequin Special Edition under the name Meg Maxwell in 2016 and 2017? My very first novel, See Jane Date, was published back in 2001 and was made into a very cute TV movie available on Amazon Prime and is sometimes still shown on the Hallmark Channel.
