New Release: Golden Days!

Happy book birthday to Golden Days, the fourth book in my Alaska Gold Rush series!


Here are the first lines:

Elizabeth didn’t see it until it was too late.

One moment she was planning a painting of the snowy scene, then the dogsled she was riding in careened around the corner. The play of shadows and light, the glittering frost on the trees, vanished when a team of dogs slammed into theirs.



And here’s the blurb:

Alaska is a cold place to live until love blossoms.

Elizabeth Robinson travels by dog sled to help her family mind the store in Fairbanks, Alaska. She wants to pursue her drawing and painting, but women artists are rare in 1906, and flood, fire, and a death in the family force her to take charge at home at age seventeen. James Garrett comes north to help his uncle at a nearby gold claim. An awkward eighteen-year-old who is more at home with machines than people, he becomes a man as he falls in love with Elizabeth. When a discovery about her benefactor, the founder of the town, threatens their future, Elizabeth and James find that together they can overcome any obstacle.


For those of you who have read my other books, you’ll see Jeannie and Clint from Quicksilver to Gold here in supporting roles. Plus, Jim and Ralph are in this book too! But if you haven’t read any others, this works as a stand-alone story too.


Golden Days is available in print and ebook versions. See more info on the Prism page:
