Did someone say dance like no one is watching? Guess that’s the only way Tyler CAN dance now. Slip into the pages of the fun and feisty second book in the Rocky Mountain Romances series.

Tyler Carter has everything she dreams of—she’s the starring ballerina in a Cirque-du-Soleil type show, a splashy Las Vegas lifestyle, and there’s nothing tying her down. Until she injures her knee, that is.

Tyler flees to her family in the little mountain town of Independence Junction, Colorado, and pretends she’ll get better, until forced to realize the truth. And forced to confront her past when she smacks right into Patrick West, the architect restoring the historic Wilkinson house.

Their attraction quickly rekindles because of a one-night tryst they had the summer before—one neither of them wants to admit to!

But something else gets rekindled. A stalker sets their sights on Tyler and leaves shocking clues indicating they know exactly who Tyler is, and that they want her dead. Will Patrick, Tyler’s brother, and a retired police dog be able to keep Tyler safe?

Book 2 excerpt

Panting, Tyler braced herself, waiting to catch her breath. She hadn’t known working out with a punching bag would be so strenuous. And she was used to quite a bit from her own training as a dancer. Slowly, she lowered her arms. She could barely lift them. As she turned, her eyes fell on someone. An image of muscular arms around her waist and intertwined legs flashed before her inner eye. Heat shot through her body. Oh great. She was suddenly aware of scattered strands of hair that had come loose from her braid sticking to her sweaty face.

​“You!” she gasped.

​“I was thinking the same thing,” he answered. 

​Funny, she remembered the way he smelled, the sensation of his touch, but she couldn’t remember his name.

​“Pat,” he said, as though reading her mind. “Patrick West.”


​“Carter. I remember.”

​They looked at each other, memories from the summer flooding back. Along with the dark good looks and toned body, Tyler remembered he was an architect. He was planning the restoration of a historic house in the area. Which explained why he was still in town.

​He took off his jacket and sat on the floor. “I didn’t know dancers could work the bag,” he said.

​“I didn’t know either, but it’s great for blowing off frustrations.”

​He nodded. 

​She waited for a comment, but he said nothing, just waited until she slid down beside him, leaning back against the wall.

​“You a boxer?” she asked out of the blue.  

​“A little martial arts,” he answered. 

​“So this dance studio is now a dojo?”

​“You know the Japanese word for it.” He looked impressed.

​“I work in Vegas with dancers, stunt people, and every kind of physical entertainment professional from all over the world. Of course I know the term.”

​The slight, amused smile fell from his face. “If you need the space, I’ll find another place.”

The fascinating and quirky citizens of Independence Junction come back in Book 2 of The Rocky Mountain Romances series to show how small-town relationships can bring out the best and worst in people.

Heart-warming with a splash of Vegas glamour, Book 2 successfully combines a new-and-old mix of family and townsfolk in a pressure-cooker plot that never lets up on chuckles, suspense, and romance.

One month from forty, Piper Addison thinks she finally has life figured out. Sure, her bank account could be fuller and the cafe she opened with the last of her savings could use some help, but what’s a few kinks for an Orchard Hollow witch?

Too bad Piper can’t witch to save her life, which is exactly what she might need to do when a dead body is discovered in the alley behind her cafe. To make matters worse, all the evidence points to Piper and the local sheriff is not too keen on the town’s paranormal inhabitants.

Is that a vintage RV— painted top to bottom with paw print-shaped polka-dots — driving into town? You can bet your pupper’s next bubble bath it is! Get ready to plunge into the pages of the third book in the always pet-friendly Rocky Mountain Romances series.

When Kathrina gets chased out of her Seattle apartment because of its no pets policy, she packs up her business, Kat’s for Dogs Mobile Grooming, and heads to the mountain town of Independence Junction, Colorado.

In Independence Junction, pets are welcome, the local diner is the hub of social life, and Sam, that good-looking guy Kat met last summer, just happens to still be around. But oh no! Sam turns out to be a professional hockey player with an ego the size of the biggest mountain in the state. Not only is Kat a little man-shy, but she has no interest in wasting her time trying to tame that wild one.

However, when injured dogs start turning up in the woods, Kat must find a way to help. Before she knows it, Kat is tangled up in the small town’s dark side. Will she rescue the animals? Will she accept Sam’s help? Will the townsfolk finally have enough with whoever, or whatever, is hurting their dogs?

Book 3 excerpt

It was a bright, blue-sky day and Kat chugged down the highway in her elderly but gently used recreational vehicle. The outside was painted white and polka-dotted with black paw prints. Electric-pink letters read: 

Kat’s for Dogs

Mobile Grooming

​Kat and her traveling companions had just crossed the border from Utah into Colorado and were bound for Independence. In more ways than one, Kat thought, trying not to recall the turmoil she’d left behind. 

​She fumbled for her cell phone and called a number that went straight to voicemail. Hi! This is Jasmine McArthy. If you are calling about classes at the yoga studio, please—

​Kat tapped her screen so the message cut off and started recording. “Hi Jaz! I’m just an hour away. I’ll call again when I’m entering town. Love you! Say hi to Pat for me.” She tapped End Call and brought up GPS again.

​A quick glance into the back of the RV showed her traveling companions, two large dogs, napping contentedly in their crates. 


​Distant thunder sounded in the distance.

​Both dogs lifted their heads.


​“Woof,” went the dogs.

​In a few minutes Kat was driving through snowflakes that got increasingly heavy the closer they came to the little mountain town. Wind gusted down from the rockies and buffeted the old RV. “Whoa, Nelly,” Kat said out loud. Nelly was the vehicle’s nickname. Half an hour later the snow drove harder and the wind rose to a howl.


​The little RV lurched left as Kat hit something invisible on the road under the snow. Nelly started to slide. The dogs yelped, and Kat took her hands off the wheel, hoping Nelly could snap out of it. But with a sickening crunch the RV slid off the road, half on the pavement and half in a ditch. The engine rattled and died. The dogs whined, then cocked their ears and made no sound. Only the wind wailed outside. 

​Kat sat in stunned silence. Beside her, the cell phone still had no bars of signal. She was too scared to cry.

​And then out of the cold and dark, a light shone. Was someone coming to the rescue? Kat’s heart leaped with hope. “I’m here!” she cried, hoping her voice would carry through the windshield. “Please help me, I’m here!”


Welcome back to Independence Junction in Book 3 of The Rocky Mountain Romances series. Your quirky friends are waiting for you to join them for another small town suspense story, complete with a nice blend of laughter, mystery, and heart-warming romance along the way!

Cursed with the ability to see the shadow of death, Leia hides from the world and stays far away from people. Until the night she comes face to face with Brimstone Jandreau.

Brim is the president of the Death Riders MC, but he went nomad in an effort to heal from grief. The moment he spots Leia, he is drawn toward her. When she warns him of his impending death, he’s not sure if he believes her, but decides to take precautions.

He finds the would-be assassin. Then discovers it’s one of his own men.

Hit hard from the betrayal, he takes Leia with him back to his world. The more time they spend together, the deeper their bond grows. But death is waiting for Brim, and Leia will do anything to protect the man she’s fallen in love with.


Excerpt –

“I hope my mother hasn’t been too stressful,” he said, nudging her knee with his own.

            “Nah, she’s been enlightening.”

            “Uh oh. What does that mean?”

            “Wouldn’t you like to know?” she asked with a smirk.

            “Don’t tell me she told you about what happened on my sixteenth birthday.”

            “No, she hadn’t, but now that you have, tell me everything.” Leia rested her chin in her palm as she stared at him, waiting.

            Brim slinked down to mimic her pose, but his big frame only looked ridiculous. “Not on your life.”
            “That embarrassing?”
            “That’s for me to know and for you to never find out.”

            She narrowed her eyes. “That makes me want to know all the more.”

            He smirked. “Good luck.”

            They stared at one another, a challenge on each of their faces. Slowly, Leia stood up and while still holding his gaze called out.

            “Oh, Marth-”

            Quicker than she could finish, Brim jumped up, grabbed her hand, and tugged her away from the bonfire.

            “Nope,” he said. “Come on.”

            She laughed as he led her away from the revelry,

            “Shouldn’t we stay?” Leia asked, pointing back toward the gathering.

            “I want to show you something.” He led her further away, toward the line of trees. As they got farther from the fire, darkness gathered around them.

            Leia blinked a few times to readjust her sight. Soon, they were all alone. “Should I be nervous?”

            “Nah, you’re going to love this.”

            Finally, they came to a clearing in the trees, and he pointed up. Leia tilted her head and saw a vast ocean of stars set against the inky black of space.

            “Oh, wow,” she breathed, captivated. “It’s beautiful.”

            “I thought you’d love it.”

About the Author

 I began reading my mom’s Harlequin Presents in the fifth grade, and from the first story I knew I wanted to write romance novels. Love is the most powerful emtion we can experience, and I adore happy ever afters. I write about the very ordinary woman thrust into an extraordinary circumstance, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers.  I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. My characters are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

When Detective Winston Radhauser’s phone rings in the middle of the night, he knows something terrible has happened. On this night, a homeless man, rummaging for food in a local dumpster, finds the body of a severely beaten young woman. On scene, Radhauser estimates the victim to be in her early twenties. He’s overcome when he learns the forensics reveal she is the girl whose disappearance has haunted him for three years–Ava Cartwright.

In broad daylight, Ava’s bicycle had been found parked with the kickstand down near a wooded area. Search parties inched their way through every portion of those woods, the neighborhood, nearby Lithia Park, and along miles of railroad tracks, but there was no sign of the little girl.

Where has she been all this time? And why was she dumped on the eve of her thirteenth birthday? There must be something, some tiny detail, he missed that will give him a lead. This time, Radhauser won’t quit until he finds it.


About the Author

Susan Clayton Goldner became fascinated with books and writing as a young child. Her first publication came when she was ten. It was a poem on the back of a church bulletin. Perhaps seeing her name in print prompted her to pursue that love and become a novelist. Susan shares a life in Grants Pass, Oregon and Tucson, Arizona with her partner, John Carter, her fictional characters, and more books than one person could count. When she isn’t writing—which isn’t often—Susan likes to make stained glass windows and quilts. She says it’s a little bit like writing—telling stories with fabric and glass.
