Clayton McCarrick-Hero in Periwinkle in the Park

Bouquet of Brides releases this month. Today we look at the hero in my story, “Periwinkle in the Park.”
Clayton McCarrick, rancher and hunter, is about to become a victim at the hands of the government—again. He’s determined to keep them from taking his land. At the end of a rifle, if necessary.
When talk of a national park threatens Clay’s livelihood, he works to persuade one of the major lobbyists, an attractive nature guide, to sway her vote. Surely, if she could see how the potential Rocky Mountain National Park would affect those living within the proposed borders, she would work to stop such a travesty.

Clay is a rugged cowboy but a wound in his past is what fuels his tough exterior. The lovely nature guide helps to open his heart and strolls in as easily as if she were hiking through an alpine meadow. Clay may have been bracing for a fight, but he wins a different battle thanks to Periwinkle Winfield.

NICK ANDREWS: Wounded, Prickly, & Gallant


“Holly & Ivy,” my #HistoricalRomance novella in A #BouquetOfBrides takes place in 1890, in Washington State. It’s about a young woman who accompanies her impetuous younger sister on her trip across the country to be a Christmas mail-order bride and is helped by a gallant stranger.
Nick Andrews is a successful cattle rancher who is jaded by the idea of love and finding a faithful wife. His own mother had cheated on his father, his foreman’s wife left him for an easier life in a city, and Nick caught his fiancée kissing another man. He has yet to meet a trustworthy woman and has been turned off from ever finding love.
But then Nick meets Holly Harrison and her sister on the train heading west. He thinks that women traveling by themselves is unwise and, even more imprudent, is to agree to be some man’s wife without ever having met him. He puts on a gruff exterior to help these ladies see reason.
Nick feels compelled to see the pair of women safely to their destination, which will give him time to talk the girl out of her silly notions. As well as give him time to spend with the captivating Holly Harrison. Could she be the one woman in a million he could risk trusting with his heart?
Find Nick’s story in “Holly & Ivy” in A BOUQUET OF BRIDES Collection. #BouquetOfBrides
