A Deeper Blue

Sadness has a tendency to run deep, especially for Alexandra Jean Rey who spent most of her living years dealing with survivorship guilt. Raised by her grandmother, Alex allowed few people into her life. She lived one day to the next and often too close to the edge for comfort. But she was smart and strong, and found ways to manage each day as it came.

Her decision to leave her career as an animal behaviorist at Florida's H&M Aquarium, followed by the loss of her best friend Andre the same year, tested Alex's resilience. Andre's will left Alex with control of half of Island Water Adventures, a lifeline during a difficult time and the possibility of a new start. Yet life never comes in a neat package.

Alex learns she and Andre's partner Sean may lose Island Water Adventures in a will contest. She also discovers that the sound of one woman's laughter will set into motion a series of events that would impact her heart and life forever. Kailyn Montgomery is that woman.

Will Kailyn lead Alex to find a deeper blue, or will the past weigh too heavily on both their futures?

White Dragon

The story of Halie Walker and Samantha Takoda Tyler continues a year after they first met in Love Another Day. Halie's efforts to reestablish a career while still recovering from previous injuries consume her time and focus, leaving Sam far from the center of her attention and their relationship under emotional strain. Adding to their troubles, someone unknown begins a campaign of attacks. Sam's horse Coco winds up missing, their home is vandalized, and worse. As anxiety builds, Halie's childhood friend, Ronni Summers, provides welcome support, but no one can figure out who is involved in the attacks.

Ronni's brief encounter with Cali Brooks taunts her dreams, but finding her potential soul mate again proves most difficult. As Thanksgiving approaches, a series of events bring Cali into Sam and Halie's life, and almost into Ronni's. New and old friends join together on Thanksgiving Day, but snowfall cuts the gathering short. What follows brings not only the White Dragon, but also revelation, love, and death; the question is: which is brought to whom?

Love Another Day

Plagued by nightmares and sleepless nights after a tragic loss, Park Ranger Samantha Takoda Tyler longs for a calm day at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. But when she's summoned to the chief ranger's office and introduced to Halie Walker, a photojournalist working for The Wild International, her day is anything but calm. When she's assigned to look after Halie, their meeting transforms into a quarrelsome exchange. Over time, the initial chill between the women warms. They grow closer as they spend time together and gain appreciation for each other's work.

But Sam's fear of loss coupled with rising jealousy over an old lover's interest in Halie grinds their budding relationship to a halt. Halie finds that anywhere near Sam is too painful a place to be, and Sam is unable to find the key to open the door to a past that she's purposely kept locked away.

With fires raging out West and in the Targhee National Forest, Sam works overtime, helping fill the staffing shortage. She misses Halie and wants to take a chance with her. Before she gets the opportunity to explain herself, Sam learns the helicopter Halie is on has crashed. Ahead of an oncoming storm, Sam races to the rescue. Can she save the woman she loves? Or will the past replay, closing Sam off from love forever?
