Trail of Redemption, Book 6 in Western Trails series!

I can’t believe I didn’t announce my newest historical western romance release! I guess that’s what happens when I try to write and edit too many things at the same time. Anyway, for those of you who read Mia’s Misfits, you may remember a strong-willed nine-year-old orphan named Summer. She reminded me of myself as a child—smart-mouthed, head-strong, independent—so I just had to give her an HEA of her own.

Wagon Train Recipes #2
