ABOUT THE BOOK
A gold-rush town is no place for a single mother. But widow Lana Bristow won’t abandon the only home her son has ever known. She’ll fight to remain in Treasure Creek, Alaska—even if it means wedding Mack Tanner, the man she blames for her husband’s death. Mack sees marriage as his duty, the only way to protect his former business partner’s family. Yet what starts as an obligation changes as his spoiled socialite bride proves to be a woman of strength and grace. A woman who shows Mack the only treasure he needs is her heart.

AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR FEATURE AUTHOR
I like the Alaskan Gold rush for the same reasons I like history and I love Cadbury Easter Eggs--the rich stuff on the inside. I disliked the facts and figures of history in high school, but once I dug down past them for the stories of history, I uncovered my passion own for adventures.
Mack and Lana’s adventures are on a landscape of a grand scale--the Yukon Gold Rush--but it’s their inner adventure that catches my heart. Even though their marriage of convenience brings them to the same home, their journey to each other is vast. Like lots of us, they try to solve their inner problems with outer fixes, and that only leads to pain and disappointment. Oh, but when they get it right on the inside, the meeting of their hearts is sweet indeed.
Until something goes horribly wrong. This is an adventure, after all.
Fold in a silver star, some very poorly baked cookies, one smart lady, several dumb crooks, an adorable toddler, and a man who’s been alone far too long, and you’ve just about got it covered. Writing this book was like holding a tiger by the tail--or maybe just a very large Alaskan moose. I hope you’ll sense the fun I had writing it as you read.
