Is her curiosity dialing up love...or a whole mess of trouble?
Available Now!

Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man's world...which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder. Yet the dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears, and repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his actions put Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.

Will real life prove to be more exciting than anything she's ever read?

Available Now! 


Alice lives with her nose stuck in a book. But when the happily-ever-after life she's planned on suddendly falls apart, and small town gossip runs rampant, she flees to the mountains of eastern Kentucky. With no running water, no electricity, and ornery horses as her only means of transportation, will Alice discover that real-life adventure, mystery, and especially romance, can be far better than her humble dreams could have imagined?
