Sasha grew up surrounded by books. Her passions have always been storytelling, romance, history, and travel. Her first play was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
A PLACE TO CALL HOME
Recovering from a toxic first marriage, single mom India Boone wants nothing more than a fresh start for her and her five-year-old son. Coming home to Ft. Kyle, Texas, was only supposed to be a stepping-stone along the way. But then India runs into the man who’s always been her rock, childhood pal Brody Wallace, and suddenly she’s not so eager to leave.
Having carried a torch for India since grade school, Brody’s thrilled the attraction finally seems mutual—except India’s still got one foot out the door. As much as it kills him, with precocious triplet daughters to worry about, he needs more than a no-strings fling. But how can he make India see that the home she’s looking for is right under her nose?

Can Tandy and Click find a way through their old pain to build a new family together?

Rescued by the Wolf
IT'S TIME TO DADDY UP!
For retired rodeo queen Poppy White, settling down in the picturesque little town of Stonewall Crossing, Texas, had seemed ideal. Until Toben Boone showed up on her doorstep. It had been a lifetime since their explosive one-night encounter in Cheyenne. Her son Rowdy's lifetime. And she hadn't heard a word since.
Toben was still easy on the eyes, still able to set her pulse racing—and still breaking the hearts of buckle bunnies all over the circuit, she had no doubt. But if he thought his boyish cowboy charm, dangerous dimples and baby blues were going to sweep her off her feet again, he was in for a big surprise. A big six-year-old surprise!

They must protect baby Oscar and Jessa—his mate. While the wolf hungers to seal their bond, Finn fights the instinct. After all, if he really cares for her, he’d never doom her to the life he lives.

Allie had big plans for the future. Falling for a cowboy wasn’t part of it.
1. Get out of Black Falls, Texas – aka Redneck Hell
(Graduation was eight months away. After that, she was out of there.)
2. Avoid Wyatt Holcomb at all costs.
(Except he was everywhere and kind of hard to ignore since he was hot—and a really nice guy.)
3. Avoid her parents.
(Shouldn’t be too hard to do since her father hated her and her mother pretended nothing was wrong.)
4. Stop thinking about Wyatt.
(Which would be a lot easier if he wasn’t so sweet… and he’d keep his shirt on.)
5. Decide what she really wants.
(Instead of holding onto the past and the guilt.)
Maybe falling for a cowboy could work after all?
