Winnie Griggs is excited to announce that SAWYER released on November 1st and is available exclusively on Amazon.
Sawyer Flynn vows to see that the man who murdered his brother pays for his crimes, but becoming the sole caretaker of an orphaned infant sidetracks him from the mission. Sawyer can’t do it all—run his mercantile, care for the baby, and find justice for his brother. He needs help. But not from Emma Jean Gilley, the daughter of the vile murderer.
Her father’s crime has made her a pariah and Emma Jean is growing desperate to find a job. Learning of Sawyer’s need, she makes her case to step in as nanny. Out of options, Sawyer finally reluctantly agrees to a temporary trial.
Working together brings understanding, and maybe something more. But just when things heat up between them, the specter of her father’s crimes threatens to drive them apart forever.
