Have you ever had the same dream, repeatedly, never knowing exactly why? Twenty-one-year-old Dee Fosco has, and she can no longer ignore it, or the voice that has spoken to her since she was a little girl.
The novel, Viper, tells the story of a girl growing up in the isolated hills of Kentucky, with her deeply depressed mother. The beat-up trailer they now live in is cramped and full of the memories of the past, and Dee’s mother, who is getting through life with numerous medications, is in constant grief over her failed marriage. She is a religious person who doesn’t take well to Dee’s constant plagues of dreams and visions. Her ability to take on the emotions of others – her mother’s being the most draining - keeps Dee suspended in a state of distress. Though she feels alone, there is always someone with her - a guide who speaks to her - giving comfort when she feels alone.
Her dream involves a family - happy and well adjusted, something Dee wasn’t used to in her own life. She watches as the mother and father cherished the boy and girl, laughing, playing, and loving one another.
Then one night, she sees these happy images change and now there is only a father and son in the little cabin. Over time, the boy turns into a man, tortured with demons that have been forever working to change him. Her guide reveals images of this place, Viper, Kentucky, and though she is warned of the danger that is imminent, she is pulled to go to Viper, if not for the sake of this mystery man's soul - then for her own.
The Double D Ranch (a Fortuna, Texas novel)
Genre: Contemporary western romance
Longhorns and lingerie...
Much to the chagrin of foreman Josiah, Jessie Davidson wants a romance reduction. But the Double D Ranch hides a secret. Since inheriting the property, Jessie kept her grandmother’s hoard concealed, but now she’s found the courage to purge the unwanted items: steamy novels, thousands of them. Romance has to go! Donating the books is a good thing, right? Not when coupled with a dare.
The dare spirals out of control. The ante is upped when caches of the spicy books, left in barber shops, pool halls, and pubs, challenge others to join the fad. A perverted prankster runs amok playing on the town’s fantasies. Book clubs are formed. Plots acted out. In a town saturated with romance, Jessie finds her love life underdeveloped.
Keep Jessie safe. It’s the promise Josiah Barnes made to Jessie’s dying grandmother. He aims to honor it, even if it means protecting Jessie from himself. Failing her in the past has him on high alert when the Double D becomes ground zero for the arousal avalanche sweeping the town. As a full-support, silent partner, Josiah will do anything to augment the Double D. But when Jessie starts selling handmade lingerie, keeping his hands to himself is easier said than done…
Will she shelve happily ever after like a rejected novel, or open her heart and start a new chapter?
