A note from the author . . .Dearest Reader,
Little did I know that my first published book, Gallagher's Pride, would lead to a fifth Montana Gallagher book and yet here we are. Amanda Warren entered the Gallaghers' lives in book three, and I immediately knew she would need a story of her own. Her past held many unanswered questions, and I wanted to learn more about her and how she came to be in Briarwood. Ben Stuart, the ranch foreman at Hawk's Peak, has a bit of his own mysterious past, and the more time I spent with him and Amanda, the clearer their stories became. I hope you enjoy their tender, romantic adventure.
Excerpt from Journey to Hawk’s Peak
From Chapter Ten“Would you rather continue to hide and live in fear of the unknown? You can resolve this by sharing your story with the Gallaghers. They have connections and influence that can help.”
Ben’s words ignited a spark within Amanda. “I wonder if I’m strong enough for a fight, if it comes to that. I was here for only the end of the troubles this family faced because of Nathan Hunter.” Amanda recalled those last days of Hunter with clarity. The destruction and fear he caused to his own flesh and blood had been abominable, and yet his grandchildren—Brenna and Ramsey—were stronger for it. “I don’t know how Brenna and Isabelle and Eliza got through it all.”
“You have the strength, and deep down, you know you’re capable of facing whatever might come your way.” He stepped closer, his voice soft yet unyielding. “You’re forgetting something very important about what Brenna and the others went through.”
Amanda’s eyes met his. She felt his strength and more palpably, his love.
“They weren’t alone, Amanda. Not for one minute, no matter if they were apart from the people they loved for a brief time. They were never alone. And neither are you.”
