A Fortuna, Texas novel book 4

Coming fall 2019!

After his wife died in a flash flood, the mayor of Fortuna, Texas, Jasen Delay, delved into work. Two years later, he’s still wearing the placating smile. In front of the courthouse, he spies an out-of-town entourage. The spring temperature rises like his curiosity. But nothing warms his soul like the beauty who steps out of the van and into the morning sunshine.

From first glance, the small Texas town of Fortuna captivates Michaela. Though it needs a little face-lift, most of the residents, especially men, keep their noses glued to the pages of romance novels. Her own curiosity piqued Mick takes on the challenge of opening the eyes of City Hall to Fortuna’s potential beyond the bookshelves. The longer she stays in the cozy town the more it feels like home, especially with the young, sexy mayor giving her VIP treatment.

Determined to keep their relationship professional, Jasen and Mick must stymie their blossoming feelings and focus on revitalizing Fortuna’s downtown. A nosy newspaper reporter, a perverted prankster, and sightings of Jasen’s wife’s ghost have Mick second guessing the choice to stay. Jasen will do anything to keep Mick in town. Fortuna needs her but, more importantly, he needs her.

With Jasen's help, can Mick wade through small town bureaucracy, solve the mystery of the canyon ghost, and learn to trust her heart?
