My favorite trick is to create characters that I feel I really know--as well as a good friend--then put them in a room or situation and ask myself what would they do or say here? They always answer the question for me and I just write it down.(less)

The Revolutionary War and a tragic loss left this brave buckskin-clad warrior battle-hardened. I love how his courageous heart defies danger and how he is determined to make a fresh start in the far west, the new state of Kentucky. Newly widowed, Catherine Adams knows she should return to her wealthy father in Boston but fears he will once again force her to marry for prestige and wealth, not love. I admire the fact that she is willing to shun wealth and society in favor of true love. Drawn to Sam’s keen intelligence, harsh masculinity, and rugged warrior facade, she decides the west holds a chance for real love. She resolves to help Sam lay down his cold heart’s armor. Despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sam refuses to risk his heart again. But Catherine won’t give up on him. She believes Sam could be as passionate about love as he is about his country and family. (less)
