Genre: Historical Western Romantic Adventure

Book Blurb

She is on a quest of discovery. He is on a quest for revenge. Together they will discover a second chance.

​Brenna Cameron travels from Scotland after losing someone she loves in search of family she didn't know existed. Alone now in the world, Brenna makes an arduous journey, following the trail of discovery to Briarwood, Montana. Here she meets Ethan Gallagher and the rest of the Gallagher clan. Only with their help is she able to discover lost family, heal old wounds, and embark on a treacherous confrontation with a man who destroyed her family.

As head of the Gallagher clan, Ethan has more than enough to occupy his thoughts and time—he didn't need the complication of Brenna Cameron and he certainly didn't need the trouble that came with her. Ethan takes on the unwanted duty of self-appointed protector to the headstrong Scot, only to discover there is such a thing as second chances and more to life than revenge.

Adventure, danger, and timeless love—Gallagher's Pride is the first in a series about a frontier family's legacy, healing old wounds, and fighting for the land they love.

She carefully set her satchel down on a rough rock next to the water and stripped down to her camisole and bloomers. Neither garment was the most practical thing to wear under the borrowed breeches, but she refused to do without them. Testing the water with a quick dip of her foot, she determined that she exaggerated. It didn’t feel like a tropical current, but it certainly wasn’t as cold as some of the rivers back home. Brenna submerged herself into the water as best she could and washed with her scented soap she had made in large batches back home. Once she was adequately clean from hair to feet, she moved to the bank, only she didn’t make it out of the water.

Ethan heard the scream and bolted to the water. He arrived at the water with his gun drawn, ready to protect her, but when his eyes rested on Brenna he couldn’t see anything wrong with her. He moved closer and saw her face. He’d never seen eyes so big in his life. He followed her terrified gaze until his eyes settled on the retreating rear end of a small black bear.

Ethan wanted to laugh and it took all of his control not to.

Brenna finally found her voice. “What took you so long? That thing could have attacked.”

Now he did laugh. He just couldn’t help it. “I take it you’ve never seen a bear before, Miss Cameron.”

“A bear? No, I haven’t actually seen a bear before, Mr. Gallagher, and I’ll thank you to stop laughing at me.”

“Your scream was enough to scare it away. It just wanted to find a light meal.” He pointed to the blackberry bush she chose to bathe near.

“I’ll have you know that I’ve seen far worse creatures in my lifetime than a measly bear. Just startled me is all.”


Brenna scowled at him, and he stopped laughing only when he noticed her state of undress. The delicate white undergarments clung to every curve, and her long red hair rioted in wet curls around her shoulders and arms. The bright moon overhead left nothing unnoticed. She was still submerged to her knees and appeared to be turning blue. Ethan cleared his throat and turned away, giving her his back.

Isabelle studied the mansion one last time. The driver loaded the luggage onto the buggy for the ride to the train station, and the air of the Garden District weighed heavy on her skin. She had imagined such a different future.

No matter how her father had left them in the end, he had given them a good home. He didn’t arrange a marriage for her as many other fathers in their social circle had done.

Isabelle gazed out the window of the train as it slowly carried her and Andrew into a wilderness that excited her as much as frightened her.

During the war, Isabelle had heard stories of men and boys heading west to avoid joining the fight. Their family had been lucky in that regard. With her father old enough to have been left alone and her brother not yet born, their family had remained intact. When her father moved the family to New Orleans, society welcomed them, regardless of where they had lived during the war. Their French heritage and wealth had certainly helped.

That acceptance mattered little now. She left behind no one who meant anything to her. When it became known that she and her brother had been left penniless, many of those she called friends stopped visiting after they’d paid their initial respects. One young man offered marriage. She declined and immediately sent a telegram to Briarwood, Montana Territory, accepting the position as a schoolteacher.
