Thunderclap

Thunderclap

The first time Britt saw Marcy, the girl in the tight, thin dress, he knew damn well that he was going to have her, or go to hell trying. But he hadn’t reckoned on Rigger, the girl’s  husband, a sadistic runt of a guy who’d smash in a man’s skull as happily as blink at him. And he hadn’t reckoned on Newt, the lecherous, broken man who lusted after his brother's wife.  As the three men fight for Marcy, human emotions are swept up, tossed in the harsh, bitter winds of the Texas panhandle, and shattered into dust.

Girl from Town

Girl from Town

Love took Garnie Harper from San Francisco to a farm in Montana...but she couldn't escape who she was.

At night, Garnie Harper cried for San Francisco, for the hot music, the bright lights, the great restaurants, and crowded, energetic streets while Jay, worn from farm work, slept heavily beside her. She knows that she's the object of ridicule, the city girl married to the dirt farmer...and an object of lust for Jay's strapping brother Bo. It's her love of Jay that holds her there, in that Montana back country hell, but her yearning, and Bo's hungry stares, are driving her away. Something has to give...or she has to dramatically change...before it all ends in heartbreak and violence.
