I'm hoping to find a place soon for these - as yet - unpublished stories:

The Ruby Knot -

When graphic designer Katie Ryan meets Navy Special Forces "Boat Guy," CJ Jansen, by chance in Las Vegas, sparks fly. But back home in San Diego, CJ is in a work-up for deployment. He doesn't call and Katie feels ashamed and used. She also discovers she's pregnant.

Noah Davidson is a gentle, low-key pastoral intern who is attracted to Katie and becomes her staunchest supporter. A romantic relationship is just getting started when CJ returns from deployment and discovers he's a father.

Two men vie for Katie's affection, but how can she follow her plan when her heart keeps getting in the way?


Christmas Calling -

Preacher’s kid Lily Reynolds has lost her job, and with it any chance of a romantic relationship with her boss, widower Josh Beckman - or so she thinks. But when she returns home to the family farm to direct the kids’ Christmas musical at her father’s church, she discovers that Josh’s son, Tyler, wants to be in the musical.

As Lily wrestles with her feelings for Josh, her anger with God, and the demands of directing the kids’ musical, one thing becomes clear:  This is going to be a Christmas to remember!
