A transplanted Scot, Margery now lives on a lake in Canada.
Although she grew up as far away from the old west as possible, she’s always had a love affair
with the men and women who settled the untamed land west of the Mississippi.
Glued to TV westerns like Maverick, Rawhide and Gunsmoke, and reading stories

organized . . . it hasn’t worked yet.
3.     Yes, I have worn my bonnet

Mr. Withers sat across from them, a
stack of papers spread out for easy access. He first read all the parts of the
will that pertained to Grant, and then he read the parts that pertained to
Sybil. He then took an envelope, passed it across the table to Sybil, and
advised her to visit the bank after leaving his office.
“You deducted the money spent on me
in America, I’m sure?” Sybil asked as she tucked the envelope into her
reticule.
“Actually, I’d like you to consider
your time in America as a gift from me,” Grant said. He felt terrible about
everything that had happened, and if he could ease his conscience in any way,
he would do it.
She turned to him with eyes of fire.
“I beg your pardon?”
“Please, it’s a gift. You deserve the
full sum of your inheritance.”
She sat up a little straighter. “Do
you mean to tell me that I’m to consider the clothing and the stay in the
Palace Hotel a gift? Lord Douglas, that might be one of the most offensive
things anyone has ever said to me. No respectable woman, whether high bred or
low, would accept such personal things from a man. It’s insulting and
demeaning.” She pulled the envelope back out and tossed it at him. “I
respectfully request that you remove the appropriate amount of money from that
envelope, sir.”
Grant was thoroughly taken aback.
“Honestly, Sybil, I had no idea—”
“Miss James will suit, Lord Douglas.”
Her voice was so cold and her eyes were so hard, he had no reasonable choice
but to open the envelope and withdraw some of the money. He couldn’t remember
all the sums, so he made a guess and passed the envelope back to her. “Thank
you. Now I believe I’ll be on my way.”

Love isn’t always loud. Sometimes
it’s silent.
Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed
the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently
put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no
prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let
loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their
matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can’t hurt. Yet the guy
they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at
the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O’Grady is
attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would
topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be
no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.
Having been born deaf, Flynn has
already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his
brothers, Gabby is about the only person who’s gone out of her way to
treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he’s banked
his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his
meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to
ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never
mind his personal life, wouldn’t flow. Determined to ignore the
antics, he’s secure in the knowledge she’s not interested in him
romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he’s
wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the
risk.
Bestselling

Finalist, and earned one of the 10 Best Reads by USA Today’s HEA. She

NEW TRICKS
by Kelly Moran
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 9/26/2017
Loving someone is something you
never forget how to do . . .
Zoe Hornsby has enough on her plate.
Her pet grooming business tucked inside her friends’ veterinarian
clinic is busy, and all her free time outside of work is dedicated to
caring for her mother’s ailing mind. Dating is certainly not on her
agenda. For all she cares, the town gossips of Redwood Ridge, Oregon,
can set their matchmaking sights on someone else. Because no way
would she consider sexy veterinarian Drake O’Grady her perfect guy.
Once upon a time, she may have harbored a little crush, but he’d
only had eyes for her best friend. And the crazy attraction building
between her and Drake now? Down boy, down.
After Drake lost his wife to cancer,
he’s finally clawed his way out of grief and beginning to feel more
like a part of the human race. But he’s appalled to learn his
prying family thinks he’s ready to jump in the dating pool. And the
woman they thrust at him couldn’t be more inappropriate. As his
dead wife’s best friend, Zoe is off limits. Even if they seem to
share a common sadness, she is too potent a personality to get
romantically tangled with. Yet she’s making his heart beat and
blood roar like he never thought it could again. And he doesn’t want
to just exist anymore . . .
