Summer Locke has made sacrifices for the sake of her family for most of her life. First as the oldest of four daughters, and then as a busy doctor and single mother to her burgeoning teen, Bella. Now at thirty-five with three younger sisters all coupled up, she is fighting loneliness and resentment. Afraid to truly love because of a secret she is not yet ready to reveal, she has given up on happily ever after and would settle with happily for now. Until she meets cowboy Maverick Shaw. He is the man she never knew she’d dreamed of with his rugged good looks, easy smile, natural swagger, and undeniable sex appeal. As their love grows, and the pressure to divulge the truth heightens, Summer’s world begins to spin out of control. And she wonders if she can withstand the consequences of her past actions or will she lose it all?
I have been in love with love ever since I was a little girl, sneaking and reading my grandmother’s western love novels. I never knew I would eventually write my own stories of romance. My stories are filled with emotion, passion, and, yes, can be a little on the naughty side. I strive to create characters in which readers can relate and feel as if they are on the journey of love, too. When I am not obsessed with my latest novel, I love to travel, dance, and drink hot cocoa while reading magazines in a bookstore. I am thankful for my family and friends, who have always supported my dreams and aspirations. A native of the South, I'm currently enjoying life in Houston, Texas.
