Storm's Refuge is available from Books We Love! It has a lovely new cover by Michelle Lee and I have added some more adventure to the ending.
This humourous romance is set in the real life town of Longview, Alberta. All the characters, with the exception of The Travelling Mabels, are figments of my imagination. The Travelling Mabels are a trio of singer songwriters who are releasing their second CD on June 12, 2011. The Mabels have graciously agreed to allow me to include them in Christmas Storm in the scene where Michelle and Cale go to a Christmas concert at East Longview Hall. Mary, an older mother figure in Michelles life, is a consumate matchmaker. Mary decides it would suit her purposes if Michelle's truck disappeared during the concert. Cale, the new vet who Michelle dislikes on sight, is also duped by Mary and finds himself seated next to Michelle instead of Doc, Mary's husband and Cale's new partner. Needless to say, Cale drives Michelle home, he only lives across the coulee from her ranch so it's not even out of his way. There are lots of ups and downs on the road to true happiness, Michelle just isn't sure she can keep the truck on the road with the shiny side up.
