My husband and I share a love of the outdoors. Early in our marriage, we enjoyed renting a cabin at Herrington Manor State Park and spent vacations in the mountains during different seasons of the year. Although cabin 18 (our favorite!) was rustic, it did have the necessary amenities—an indoor bathroom and kitchen. And there was mountain laurel everywhere!
Some of our favorite activities were picnicking on the edge of the lake and hiking up to the top of the mountain. One day, we happened upon an old grave site. Shafts of sunlight trickled through the high, leafy tree tops and silence permeated the air, giving the spot a truly seraphic feel. Most of all, we enjoyed nightfall, when we would head out to the meadow, spread out a blanket and lie on our backs to take in the glorious show. The stars of the Milky Way are a stunning sight to behold. Especially so, far away from the city lights.
The time I spent in the park left an indelible mark on me. It was here that the idea for MOUNTAIN LAUREL was born. Michael Walker is a rugged forest ranger (of course!). And Laurel Morgan is a young woman who, well, is doing the best she can. Here’s more about the story:
So what if Laurel Morgan hasn’t had a date in years? Her dysfunctional family makes creating a private life next to impossible. But if all it will take to convince her teenage sister to turn her life around is to go on a few dates and have some fun, it’s a bet she can beat. And before she can change her mind, rugged forest ranger Michael Walker agrees to play the part of her ardent admirer.
Laurel is stunned by Michael’s convincing acting abilities. Whenever her sister’s watching, Laurel finds herself wrapped in a heady embrace with a passionate kiss on the way. Her captivating cohort promises a performance that will win her the wager, but when the curtain closes, will she lose the only man she will ever love?
