Twenty five year old Cassie Foster grew up knowing that someday she would inherit her grandparent�s fifteen hundred acre ranch, and that they expected her to carry on with its legacy. But, her staying on the ranch wasn�t part of the plans that her high school sweetheart, Ethan King, had in mind for his future. So, he had left her heart broken and vowing that she would never let herself be hurt again by falling in love with someone. But then Chad Benson, a half-blooded native American, walked into her life unexpectedly, and just happened to be on the scene the day her grandfather died. She found him easy to talk to, easy to lean on, and easy to trust, so instead of searching for a hired hand to help her, she accepted his offer to become a partner in helping her manage the ranch for a share of the profits. The one thing Cassie hadn�t planned on was the return of Ethan, with his intentions of winning her back, and doing anything that was necessary to make her give up the ranch so she would go to Colorado with him, which included creating conflict between her and her new partner.
I grew up in the Midwest farming area, married my high school sweetheart, and moved to the big city where our three children were born. Later we moved back to that same small farming area so our children could grow up in a smaller school complex. Living in two different worlds taught me not only how to accept the different aspects of people that surround me, but how necessary it is.
After our children left the nest, I returned to our local community college and took night classes to learn how to write and express myself on paper. Since that time, I�ve written several books and short stories, as a way of relaxing. Two of my books have been published, and two more are in the process of being so.
