Available now for Pre-order!
Hero Tom MacKinnon rides up driving a wagon with a second wagon trailing him. He and his sister want to be hired to build windmills. They’ll ask for very little money and, in exchange heroine, Lauren Drummond, newly widowed mother of four nearly grown sons, will help them learn to survive in the Sandhills of Nebraska. What to grow, what to hunt, how to build a sod house.
Tom’s windmills will save her ranch. Lauren needs three windmills on this drought year or her growing herd of cattle is going to die of thirst. She agrees to teach him the ways of the Sandhills, and to give him fifteen head of cattle.
She’s not ready to think of another man. But Tom changes her mind. His little sister and one of her sons find love together before Tom and Lauren do.

  1. Good morning, Seekerville! And happy Father's Day weekend!

    Today is a bright, beautiful, sunny morning in the Black Hills, but no playing outside for me today. I'll be at my computer wracking up the word count. (Probably the 2nd best way to spend a day like today!)

    Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

  2. Happy Father's Day to all the dads!

    Where is everyone today? Maybe getting ready for Father's Day celebrations. I shopped 'til I dropped today. :)

    1. I came to check in and thought the same thing, Debby! Have a great weekend, everyone!

    2. .
      If you can shop
      'til you drop
      whenever you can get away,
      then why not write
      all through the night
      and into the following day?

      The words are free
      take as many as can be
      you can exchange them
      at any time,
      and they won't
      cost you a dime.

  3. Debby, I love the new cover!

    Happy Father's Day to our readers who are fathers and father figures!

  4. We had the best lunch! All the kids came for Father's Day. So nice to have all my chicks at home!
