Two brothers…one woman…and one final chance for...
From a mysterious town hidden on the banks of Big Cypress Bayou in the swamps of East Texas comes TEXAS REDEMPTION. This story is a reissue of Redemption (2005) and I’m so excited to have it back into readers' hands on February 7th.
Setting always plays a huge part of my stories, often becoming a character in itself. For this story of two people hiding, looking for a safe place, the swamps of East Texas are perfect. Swamps are dark, silent, and ghostly with tall moss-draped cypress everywhere you turn. I went to Big Cypress Bayou which is near Jefferson, Texas when I got the idea for the story and took lots of pictures. But mostly, I soaked up the “feel” for the place and I don’t think I could’ve set this anywhere else. I hope you enjoy the photos. My camera wasn't the best.
Brodie Yates, known as legendary spy Shenandoah during the Civil War, has been chased for three long years by the U.S. army. Redemption is a good place to make a final stand.
Laurel James met Brodie who was going by the name of Shenandoah in a brothel where she taken after being kidnapped. Everything’s perfect…until Shenandoah rides into town and strides into the small café that Laurel co-owns.
One glance tells her that she’s still in love with him. There’s no denying it....Only she's engaged to his brother.
One offers respect and redemption. The other his heart. Which will she choose?
