Faux-hawked lesbian hipster, straddling the fine line between literary fiction and smut. [Probably] not your mother romance writer, but you should still invite her to the book launch.

In this too-small, dusty town, brand-new district attorney Kristen Brock knows she’ll never fit in. Still, the job will look great on her résumé—if she can just keep her head down and play by the rules. Because in a town run by a self-serving, powerful family, the last thing Kristen needs is trouble . . . but one kiss from the beautiful ex-rodeo queen Marydale Rae turns her world upside down.And Marydale is definitely trouble.

Marydale didn’t intend to hide her past from Kristen, but the prospect of a friend who doesn’t know she spent time in prison is too tempting to pass up. Add in the passionate night they share, and Marydale never wants Kristen to know the truth. But small towns don’t keep secrets, and the powerful Holten clan is determined to destroy anything and anyone who makes Marydale happy.

  8. Karelia, I haven’t seen you in a few decades! We last visited Corvallis in 1982! However, we were on a tour in Russia and either skirted Karelia or maybe even went through a bit of it on our way to St. Petersburg. We were there in September, and it was open with trees. Pleasant. Very rural. A big sky. I am sure your parents are very proud of your accomplishments.

I'd love to hear from you. Click here!
