"Where was she?" Final excerpt from LAND OF THE NOONDAY SUN

When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as 

Land of the Noonday Sun.


This is it! Last excerpt for Land of the Noonday Sun, and yes, I’m gonna leave you guessing, I hope.

He called her mobile again, nothing. Now what? What else was there to do?

He ran his hands through his hair frantically. If he left…she could show up. Or, she could be in a ditch somewhere. Decision made, he jumped in his truck. He’d keep a lookout the entire way, hoping she’d pass him. He watched the entire trip back to the store…there was only one main road. He would have passed her if she’d been driving.

He stormed through the parking lot, but her car wasn’t out front. He parked his truck sideways in a no-parking zone and jumped out of the truck, charging into the building.

Land of the Noonday Sun is available now in print and ebook formats. If you don't see your favorite, please leave a comment below, and I'll let the publisher know.

A little about what I write:

While I do not write "Christian" books, I do share my characters' Christian beliefs. My characters are real people who come with real flaws; no perfect people allowed.

I characterize my stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflowing with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.

My first two novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. My third novel, Entangled Dreams, is now available.

My novels are all standalones; however, I do link each of my stories with a little surprise. If you read out of order, you'll never notice. But if you read in order, it's fun.
