The Whisper Creek Books

Unlucky In Love cover


Available for pre-order here!

From the author of Once Upon a Cowboy (“Sexy, charming, and perfectly heartwarming.”—Lauren Layne) comes another sweet novel of the Whisper Creek Ranch, where sizzling Montana men melt the most stubborn hearts.

After Alexis Maguire’s wedding day comes and goes without a groom, she decides that it’s time for a change. Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.

Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier. Having grown up an army brat, he’s ready to put down roots, and the only thing missing is a woman to share his life with. When Alexis blows into town, Gunnar thinks he may have met his match, despite the wild-child facade he sees right through. But Alexis swears she won’t settle down anytime soon—so it’s up to Gunnar to convince her that what she’s looking for . . . is right here.

"McGinnis’s latest offers a boatload of heart and romance, with a dash of suspense for good measure." ~~ Library Journal

From the publisher:

In this sexy Whisper Creek romance for readers of Kristan Higgins, Susan Mallery, and Molly O’Keefe, a red-hot cowboy uses some Montana magic to give a reclusive beauty her happily ever after.

Yoga instructor Jessalyn Alcott radiates peace, calm, and serenity—on the outside. Inside, she still feels like the broken, desperate girl from the trailer park. She’s got dark secrets she can’t share, which is why she never lets her relationships go beyond the third date. But when she travels to the Whisper Creek dude ranch for a friend’s wedding, Jess is enchanted by a cowboy whose deep blue eyes, dimpled smile, and rock-hard body make it tough to remember why she keeps running scared.

Cole Driscoll has struggled to find his place on a family ranch where he’s always played second fiddle. His future might be uncertain, but he’s sure of one thing: He wants Jess by his side. Easier said than done. When it comes to getting close, she’s full of excuses, and he longs to fix the hurt he sees in her eyes. Now that she’s at Whisper Creek, there’s nothing he wants more than to break down the walls around her heart and heal her pain with the power of love.

“A sweet and charming love story perfect for the holidays...and all days in between!"
~~ Jane Porter, New York Times bestselling author

From the publisher:

In a captivating novel spiced with holiday magic—perfect for fans of Rachel Gibson, Susan Mallery, and Molly O’Keefe—a rugged Montana man mends a Northeast girl’s jaded heart.

Boston veterinarian Hayley Scampini tends the city’s pampered pets but dreams of the rural life of a country vet. She’s single and determined to stay that way, convinced that love isn’t permanent enough to trust. Then a vacation to the Whisper Creek dude ranch introduces her to Daniel McKee, a sexy single dad who runs the kind of veterinary practice she aspires to—and rattles her conviction to keep men at a distance.

Managing a thriving practice, coping with the loss of his wife, and fighting a custody battle with his in-laws over his twin daughters, Daniel couldn’t be more overwhelmed. Hayley is a godsend, accompanying him in the field and winning over his girls. It doesn’t take Daniel long to realize he’s falling for this woman, hard and fast. So before Hayley returns to Boston, he extracts a promise: that she will return to Whisper Creek for Christmas. It’s the perfect time and place to show Hayley that the promise of a beautiful life together is something she can believe in.

Accidental Cowgirl Cover


Available here!

"Characters you’ll love and a story that’ll make you smile. Accidental Cowgirl is a winner."
~~ Christie Craig, NY Times bestselling author

Kyla Bennett needs a vacation. Her ex-fiance imagined himself the next Bernie Madoff, minus the orange jumpsuit. Unfortunately, his lies caught up with him, along with the FBI. Kyla and her grandparents were shocked to find their accounts emptied, but Kyla was even more appalled to find out the lying skunk was already married. A terrible car accident in the aftermath of his betrayal left her with a crushed femur and raging case of post-traumatic stress, and a year after the crash, her best friends Hayley and Jess decide to pack her off for a two-week trip to a dude ranch. It'd be a great surprise, except for Kyla's deathly fear of horses. 

Decker Driscoll grew up on a thriving Montana ranch, but left for L.A. without a backward glance ten years ago. If his father hadn't put the ranch up for collateral a week before he drove into a tree, Decker'd still be in L.A. Instead, he's promised his mom and brother that he'll help out for the summer, even though Ma's turned the ranch into a damn tourist haven in order to fend off the bank. But now that he’s back, it’s harder and harder to imagine leaving the land he loves.

When Kyla arrives at the ranch with her Louis Vuitton luggage and kitten heels, Decker's convinced she's a typical tourist. He’s not looking to be anybody’s fantasy cowboy—hell, he doesn’t even belong here anymore— but finds himself inexorably drawn to this city girl who can make chocolate-chip cookies on a campfire. She, on the other hand, is so good-n-burned that she's pretty sure she'll never trust her own radar again.

ACCIDENTAL COWGIRL is the first in the Whisper Creek series, published by Random House Loveswept®!
