Graphic designer Johanna Ware knows family is the most important part of life. Her son, Kameron, is her world after losing her daughter and husband. She hides away on her Nebraska farm, wishing for adventure but settling for responsibility.

Corporate pilot Holden Lancaster is ready to fly for Donovan Electronics at a moment’s notice. When he isn’t in the air, he’s at his Texas home remodeling old cars to race and sell. He enjoys the speed of his life but not the solitude.
When Holden discovers shady dealings at Donovan Electronics, an attempt on his life leaves him with amnesia in a crashed plane in Johanna’s field. With no memory of family or friends and a company who denies employing him, Holden is placed in Johanna’s care.
Will Johanna regret opening her world to this sexy stranger? Will Holden remember a life that makes it impossible for him to be with Johanna? Or is love enough to make them forget everything but each other?

McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, complications are aplenty in the form of a nasty ex-wife, an ex-boyfriend intent on killing her, and a feisty race horse who refuses to race without a kiss. Can Will and McKenna cross the finish line together, and more importantly, alive?

Welcome! I’m just starting Romantic Picks Blog up at the moment. Be patient with me. It won’t go live until July for all intents and purposes. I have in mind what I want to do here on Romantic Picks. If you follow me on Novel Works, you can get a just of what I do- I promote the works of authors and help readers find exciting, intriguing, romantic books to read! This site will be designed for readers! I want to hear from you- what you want and need to help you find the book you are looking for.

At the moment all I have up are my books…that will change. I have to get organized and then I’ll bringing in other authors, blogs, reviews…everything you will want and need to find a great romance book to read.

I want to make this simple like on Novel Works. What I foresee is simple post most of the time…the book, the blurb, the link to buy…reviews if there are any I can supply. I also want to supply you information where you can go from here to help make a choice. Books on all the different sites, blogs that promote books… Everything I will do here is free. I do it because I love to help other authors and met readers.

I’m laying low for a little while this summer for a couple of reasons. First, I’m celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary to the most wonderful man. We are going away to celebrate. I won’t be on the internet during that time. (I promised him.) Second, I’m in the midst of trying to finish my next release, Ruse of Love. When I come up, I hope to give you an endless supply of all types of romances- contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy.

Until that time – as I said- I’m just setting up this blog. I only have my books up here at the moment.  Check them out if you get the chance. I will be back. Be patient. Look for Romantic Picks to come up mid-July.
