I'm so pleased to announce the release of my newest time travel romance, A Home in Your Heart! Sometimes, I have to slog through a book, fighting for every word and line, and sometimes the book just flows. This one flowed! Inspired by my four-month stay on historic Fort Huachuca in southeastern Arizona, A Home in Your Heart is my tribute to the legends of the Cavalry, Apaches and the romantic notion of traveling in time to find the one you love.
Here's a bit about the book:
Harriet (Harry) Ferguson is engaged to be married...unhappily so. All she truly wants is a forever home, something she has never had. On a visit to her fiance’s mother in Southeastern Arizona, she stops by a museum on historic Fort Huachuca, an Army post dating to the late 1800s, where the wax figure of a handsome Cavalry soldier captures her imagination—so much so that she can’t resist touching the figure.
Lieutenant Daniel Thorn’s duties at Fort Huachuca involve chasing renegade Apaches and Mexican bandits. One night while on a mission to rescue stolen horses, Daniel’s duties are expanded to include the rescue of a young woman who mysteriously falls into his desert campsite. Given that Miss Ferguson does not appear to understand where she is or what has happened to her, Daniel suspects amnesia, and takes her to the fort surgeon.
But Harry doesn’t have amnesia. She remembers fully well where she was when she must have traveled in time. And she remembers Daniel, her wax figure somehow come to life.
Can a modern-day woman like Harry find a forever home in the late 1800s? Can Daniel, a nineteenth-century Cavalry soldier, finally come to believe that Harry has lost not her memory, but her heart? That she has traveled 130 years into the past for him?
I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it!
