A Rough Draft
A Heart Valley Romance: Book 1
by Jennifer McMurrain
Available for pre-order now

All Kayla Cash has ever dreamed is to be a writer. Her quiet little house, nestled in the Rockies of Wyoming, is the perfect inspiration for her novels. That is, until a new neighbor moves in and turns her serene piece of property into a construction zone. Her tranquility is further rocked when she finds the one making all the racket is none other than the one that broke her heart, Sawyer Evans.

To Sawyer, Kayla is the one that got away and he can’t shake the feeling that moving next door to her is his chance to, not only make amends, but to win her heart again. He could only hope living next to Kayla in a place called Heart Mountain was more than just a coincidence.


Kayla must decide how to write the ending to her own story. Will she risk letting Sawyer into her heart again, or will he forever remain a rough draft?

Miracle at Valley Rise Series
by Karen Welch
March 17, 2014
Collection of Novels


The first four books of the Miracle at Valley Rise Series now in a single volume.

Nineteen-year-old Emily Haynes had lost almost everything she loved. Relying on what seems to be guidance from her invalid father, she returns to her past in hopes of finding some sign toward the future. What begins as a joyous homecoming quickly turns into a nightmare when a badly injured stranger stumbles on the scene, his brief presence threatening to alter everything she believes about herself and the plan for her life. 
Super-star violinist Stani Moss appeared to have everything, fame, fortune and a career guaranteed to bring more of the same, until one hasty decision placed it all in jeopardy. Terrified and confused, he struggles not only to recover his former skill, but to find answers to the questions which haunt him. Throughout his slow journey back, one image lingers in his buried memories of that fateful night—the vision of a girl he’s never met. 

World-renowned violinist Stani Moss and country-bred Emily Haynes have bridged the distance between their worlds and fallen in love, but neither is prepared for what awaits them on the winding road to happily-ever-after. 

Their honeymoon may be a European concert tour, their first home a series of hotel suites, but for Emily and Stani, the happy-ever-after has begun. 
Travel with Stani and Emily through the first event-filled year of their marriage. Familiar characters are joined by a host of newcomers, as the newlyweds move between London, New York and the farm in the foothills. Lives are touched, futures are altered, and above all, miracles abound. 

Normal for Stani and Emily Moss will always include the unceasing variety of their life. Nothing they haven’t done before, and nothing they won’t look forward to doing again, or so they tell themselves. 
What they cannot foresee is that they are entering a year of milestones, not only for themselves but for others in their tightly knit circle. The months ahead are destined to be marked by promising beginnings and poignant farewells, filled with moments of both joy and sadness, and measured by triumphs and trials unlike any they have faced before.
