My novella ALARMINGLY CHARMING is part of the AUSTEN IN AUSTIN collection, Volume 1. Here’s the blurb:

As travel companion to her condescending cousin, Philadelphian Kathryn Morton dreamily anticipates a week in the Wild West as the best cure for meekness. After a long rail journey and a steady diet of gothic dime novels, she shivers, despite the Texas heat, at the ghastly tales of the Austin Axe Murderer. Kathryn has little time to fret, given the competing attentions of quiet rancher Harmon Gray and elegant gentleman Jonathan Wellington. With her new-found confidence and her boundless imagination, she sets out to solve the mystery of Hyde Park Cemetery before another student flees Austen Abbey. Only then can she return home to her English-born parents as an independent American woman. A woman in love. But on the stormiest of nights, Kathryn learns that solving the mystery may destroy a future with the man she’s fallen for in a big Texas way.

Announcing a New Novella Collection…ARIZONA

For some reason, I hear the old song from the seventies. I’d like to say I’ll give you a free copy of the novella collection if you can name the one I’m talking about and the band who sang it.  Well, I am saying it, but to limit the no-doubt hundreds of requests, I’ll limit it to three. By… say… this time next year!


The ARIZONA boxed set contains two historical and two contemporary novellas from the Forget Me Not authors.   Just 99cents or free on Kindle Unlimited

WHY NOT by Debra E. Marvin
Love Puts These Two On the Edge!

Grand Canyon, 1914

Society girl Amber Wynott’s wintry escape to the Grand Canyon provides a chance to pursue her dream and prove she has what it takes to be a successful architect. It doesn’t take long to realize the incredible scenery can’t hide the simmering anger between ‘railroad money’ and the struggling locals.

Which side is master builder Stone Morrison on?

Amber has met her match in the handsome, hard-headed man. He’s been directed to keep an eye on her, but when iron meets iron—oh the sparks! As their unlikely old matchmaker tells them, pride goes before a fall, and this is a bad place to fall. Will danger finally knock some sense into the pair?

BROKEN TOGETHER  by Joi Copeland
Hope drives her back home to Flagstaff, Arizona, until Zoey learns the truth.

His peaceful world shaken, Gawain battles with letting go of the pain that once held him captive.

Will they find healing or will they remain, Broken Together?

Zoey Fuller and Cadan Moss were friends in secret during high school in Flagstaff, Arizona. Too ashamed to admit her friendship with the heavy-set boy, she’d meet him at a coffee shop outside of town where no one would see them. She couldn’t risk her reputation by letting any of her cool friends know about her relationship with the heavy-set outsider. Seven years later, she returns to Flagstaff, a new creation in Christ, hoping to make amends with her long-lost friend.

Gawain Moss lost his twin and best friend seven years ago. The tragedy shaking him to the very core, Gawain battles with forgiving the woman who, he believes, took his brother away from him. Finally at peace, he teaches at the same school his brother once attended. And then one day, he runs into Zoey, and his world is turned upside down.

DESERT ROSE by Cynthia Hickey
Nothing matters but keeping her land.

Rose Willingham, oldest sister of four, is level-headed and strong. When her uncle dies, leaving a ranch in Arizona to her and her sisters, she has full confidence they can make the ranch into something to be proud of. What she didn’t count on was a snake named Logan Pritchard or a handsome neighbor named Zeke McCammon to both have their eyes on Rose and her land.

One wants Rose along with her land and the other will do anything to possess one or the other.

This is the continuing story of four volumes with each volume continuing where the one before ends, and in the point of view of another sister.

HER CULINARY CATCH by Bonnie Engstrom
Marci had learned to cope with her deformed leg. As the curator of The Bridal Museum, she felt almost fulfilled … until the new chef arrived to oversee the Café Wedd. But, Conrad Thorstrom was beneath her educationally. His minor accomplishments and associate degree didn’t match up to her MBA. How could she be attracted to him?

Besides, she was a gimp, and he was a tall, handsome Swede who dubbed her his Wild Irish Rose. If she was above him intellectually, he far surpassed her in the looks department.
