Warning! This story might make you crave cupcakes!


Here's a sneak peek at my Dear Reader letter!

Dear Reader,

 Thanks to your loyalty, The Slades of Sunset Ranch series was extremely well received and has been a fan favorite.  Since Casey Thomas was introduced in Sunset Seduction, (Luke and Audrey’s story) I’ve been getting requests and questions from readers asking if Casey would have a story of his own.

The answer is YES!

As I was writing Casey, I realized this hunky heartthrob secondary character needed a story of his own.  He was just too delicious a hero not to find his own great love.  He had a lot of good things going for him and though he came on super strong protecting his sister in Sunset Seduction, the tables are now turned on Casey. 

 His sister asks him to do her this one giant favor in Redeeming the CEO Cowboy that involves Susanna Hart, her good friend and hometown neighbor, owner of Sweet Susie’s Pastries and More.  It’s something Casey feels honor bound to do.

But Audrey doesn’t know what she’s really asking of her big brother…Casey and Susanna share a secret that neither of them want revealed. It’s difficult for Casey to help Susanna when she’s barely talking to him.  But Casey is a good guy at heart and Susie and her three-year old charge, Ally are a hard combination for this CEO Cowboy to dismiss.  They say redemption is good for the soul, right?  Casey Thomas gets a dose and then some.

Warning:  This story might make you crave cupcakes!

That’s all I’m saying…
Happy Reading!

Four Stars for the Cowboy -- A SURE BET!

Here's the first review of my August release, Redeeming the CEO Cowboy: 

Romantic Times Book Reviews-- 4 ****

REDEEMING THE CEO COWBOY (4) by Charlene Sands:  Susanna Hart knows that she's just going to have to deal with former rodeo champion turned construction CEO, Casey Thomas living next door. Ten years ago, devastating news sent Susanna running into his arms with disastrous results.  Casey is back temporarily and he hopes to make amends with his sister's best friend.  But what he doesn't count on is falling for her 

Sands continues the Slades of Sunset Ranch series with a heartfelt story, three-dimensional characters and a storyline that flows with relative ease. This is a sure bet!

CUPCAKES, COWBOYS AND KIDS - Available now Redeeming the Ceo Cowboy!

Hi Everyone,

If you like all three, you're gonna like this story.  I mean, who doesn't like an alpha hunk of a cowboy, mouthwatering cupcakes and cute kids?  That said, I'm pleased to announce that Casey Thomas's story is available for Pre-Sale!  You can find it on AMAZON!

Ten years ago = ancient history…right? 

So what if former rodeo champion turned construction mogul Casey Thomas is back…living right next door? Susanna Hart is busy running her Sweet Susie's pastry business and raising her two-year-old cousin. Why pay any attention to the man who took her virginity ten years ago, then left town? 

Casey still feels guilty for taking advantage of his little sister's best friend. A helping hand is just what her business—and his conscience—need. But guilt isn't his only motivation. Casey's got a sweet tooth for Susie. And the more she resists, the sweeter it gets!

I've been diligently working on my new series of books for 2015 and I need your help in titling the first story. The series revolves around three (so far) fabulously wealthy guys who own mansions on Moonlight Beach (think Malibu Colony). 

Here's a very brief synopsis of the first story:  

Country western superstar Zane Williams is temporarily living in a Moonlight Beach mansion and is trying hard NOT to fall for his late wife's little sister.  Zane is still grieving and newly made-over Jessica Holcomb, has just been dumped by her fiance at the altar. Jessica is working for Zane now and is on the rebound.  What a pair, right? Talk about forbidden love! 

Simply tell me what title you like or love the most of these contenders and post it in the comment section. Three random bloggers will be chosen to each win a $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble Gift Card. This giveaway will run until Friday night and will be announced right here. Be sure to:

Check back on Friday evening.

Post your email addy in the body of your comment. 

Choose from these four. Feel free to add a title or two.  Have fun and thanks for the help!

SPECIAL SALE FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL...The Cowboy Contract and Smooth-Talking the Hometown Girl

From now until April 30th my two ebooks are on sale for the special price of 99 cents each!  Here's a little bit about each of them!

Trey Walker thought he was cursed when it came to women, but after a disaster destroyed nearly everything veterinarian Maddie Brooks owned, Trey offered the petite redhead shelter at 2 Hope Ranch. Maddie was smart, sexy and good with animals... impossible to resist, yet he vowed not to break her heart. 

Maddie knew the temporary arrangement she made with Trey was strictly business. For over a year she'd tried to get the handsome rancher to notice her, but the man never seemed interested. Now, she'd be living under his roof and using his barn to treat animals. 

Could she be the woman to break the Walker Curse?

Wealthy and successful, Kyle Warren never backs down from a challenge--in business or in pleasure. Marriage-minded now, he's returned to his hometown and set his sights on blonde-haired, blue-eyed Christy Evans, the one girl he couldn't win over in high school. This time, Kyle won't take no for an answer from the pretty girl next door. 

Running a catering business and writing a heart-healthy cookbook, doesn't leave Christy much time for romance. All she has to do is keep her distance from her seriously sexy, temporary neighbor. Yet, Kyle needs a friend now and Christy has always been a sucker for a man in need. She vows not to fall for Kyle's good looks, broad shoulders and dark bedroom eyes. She'd seen the damage he'd left in his wake in high school. But how long can a girl resist his seductive smiles and smooth-talking ways?
