My novella in Lone Star Love it called Unexpected Blessings. Here’s what it’s about: Anna Campbell, nanny to Molly and Mark Olson, is tasked with taking the two children she dearly loves to their uncle after the tragic death of the children’s parents. But Erik Olson thinks his brother died years ago and refuses to believe the youngsters are his kin. Anna would keep them if she could, but she can barely provide for herself. The children need their uncle. How can she convince the stubborn man that he also needs them?

Champion bull rider Dusty Starr is at the top of his game—until a bull throws him and stomps on his leg. He goes home to heal and watch after his grandma until he can rejoin the circuit. While there are no guarantees that bull riding is in his future, his past is alive and well in the form of Gramma’s beautiful physical therapist—a woman he never expected to see again. Physical therapist Lindsey Lang once loved Dusty, but then tragedy struck because of his younger brother’s recklessness, and Dusty did something she never thought he’d do. He abandoned her, leaving her to mourn alone. Being assigned to Grandma Starr is hard enough, but with Dusty there, Lindsey’s sure her heart won’t survive. Against all expectations, friendship renews, and Dusty dares to hope Lindsey will forgive him. She’s the only girl he’s ever loved and he aims to get her back. But friendship is one thing. A second chance at love? That will take more gumption than riding a rank bull—and then some.
