Vacationing in McNally Bay, Jesse McNally finds his old high school crush Carla Templeton, more beautiful than ever. But watching Carla’s eight-year-old daughter Cassandra, who shares some of his siblings’ mannerisms, he’s shocked to discover he’s the girl’s father. Stunned, he has little choice but to make up for the time he’d lost with his daughter and the woman he once loved. Even the attacks against him, from some unknown foe, can’t change his mind.
Carla hadn’t kept Cassie a secret on purpose, but there was no point in denying the truth. Jesse has made it clear he’s here to stay. And when the danger around Jesse spreads to her and her daughter, Carla is thankful for Jesse’s strength and protection. But can she trust Jesse not to break her heart a second time?
I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I did! I grew up reading faith based books by Grace Livingston Hill so writing for Love Inspired Suspense is a dream come true. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband of thirty-three years. My daughter Nicole is married to a wonderful man named Mike and my son Jonathan is a Registered Nurse at the same hospital where I work. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I’m a dog lover and had to put my Westie named Mac down a year or so ago. I still miss him but now have a chance to dog sit for my sisters and brother. I try to incorporate pets in my my stories as much as possible In May of 2017 I was the humble recipient of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m blessed to be a member of such an amazing group!
