Winter Magic After the Kiss The Bodyguard The Bridegroom

Mike’s Story is Here!

I’ve set a table to entertain this month, but I’m not sure I’m going to invite folks to the house. I just got over Influenza A, which took about two weeks, and I’m “waiting to see” how bad the coronavirus will affect folks where I live. I did cancel my plans to spend six weeks in Florence, Italy, on the advice of friends living there (a good thing, since Italy has quarantined its entire country), and I’m debating whether to get on a plane in April to visit a close friend in Texas.

There’s an upside to being “stuck” at home: I’ll have more time to work on the next Benedict Brothers novel, Irresistible. I’m reading Invincible and Unforgettable right now to remind me of everyone’s names, ages, eye color, and who’s doing what with whom. My goal is to finish Irresistible before school is out this year. I’ll let you know when it’s available.

Here’s the back cover teaser:

In the five years since Mike Sullivan’s face was destroyed by a grizzly, he’s become a lone wolf, working on his family’s Montana ranch by day and retreating to a log cabin at night. When he discovers a woman and her four-year-old daughter huddled in a stalled truck during a blizzard, he has no choice except to bring them to his isolated cabin in the woods.
Joanna Henderson is grateful when a mysterious stranger–only his blue eyes are visible behind a concealing scarf–offers to help, but going with him may be more perilous than staying where she is. Joanna becomes truly frightened when she finally sees the stranger’s ruined face and realizes that, once again, she’s at the mercy of a dangerous man she doesn’t trust.
Between a woman’s need and a man’s loneliness the buds of friendship flower into true love.
