Married Under the Mistletoe

I love this time of year. I’m a Hallmark Christmas movie junkie. I believe in the magic of Christmas lights. I listen to Bing Crosby and dream of a white Christmas the DAY after Halloween. I think a hot cup of coffee, a good book, and a warm blanket on a cold, snowy day can…

A Little Branding Going On…

Good afternoon! I received a few emails about the header change. LOL So here’s the deal… My books aren’t spicy, nor are they sweet. For some readers, the lack of sex scenes in my books rub them the wrong way (see what I did there). For other readers who enjoy sweet books, the cursing in…

Dakota Lightning

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Dakota Lightning, here’s an excerpt just to throw in a little temptation. 🙂 Read Chapter One HERE. Chapter Two Abby’s hands were shaking as she held them under the bathroom faucet in Dan and Alice’s temporary trailer house, which sat not far from the lively reception. She…

Getting Back in the Saddle!

Things have been insanely busy around the McClure household. Like most, we had some setbacks in 2020–mostly health related–but I think we’re back on track. 🙂 My daughter, Sarah, and her husband, Joe, just moved to our sleepy little town, so that was awesome! She’s a teacher and he’s a deputy sheriff. And yes, he’s…

Working on a FREE book — Dakota Sunshine

Despite local restaurants being closed and my favorite store, Hobby Lobby, closed as well, I’ve been staying busy! (Actually, Hobby Lobby is open again. Already been there. Already purchased mad amounts of decor. I’m feeling a little better about life in general as a result!) So now that I have a little happy purchasing under…

Crazy in Love – A 90 Minute Read

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I started a new series. It was meant to give me a break from my town in my Dakota Series, ‘Garner’, and those characters. Crazy in Love is a short story and only .99 cents. It’s up on Amazon for pre-order and will be available on…

Dakota Storm – Excerpt Time!

Dakota Storm will be up for pre-order soon! Right now I’m working on the blurb <– slightly nightmarish, but necessary. I thought I’d share the first scene today. This is a New Adult Romance set in a small town. New Adult can best be explained very simply: These characters are right out of college. They’re…

PBR in Deadwood, South Dakota

Most people that know me know that I’ve fallen in love with the sport of bull riding. I moved to South Dakota in 2009 and attended my first rodeo in Mobridge on July 4th, 2010 – I was hooked. I’m originally from Sacramento, California. I was born in Illinois, and my parents moved to Cali…
