Welcome to Burnt River, a new series of Contemporary Western Romance stories set in the fictional town of Burnt River, Montana. Brought to you by Shirleen Davies, Peggy L Henderson, Kay P. Dawson, Amelia Adams, and Kate Cambridge.

One person's influence has the power to change their lives...

It's good to have ambitions and goals, as long as they're our own and not someone else's.

 After a decade-long absence, Allison Cramer returns to her childhood home to pay tribute to a former teacher. Years of excelling in all of her classes, and pursuing a doctorate at MIT should give her an abundance of confidence and pride. When she realizes that the insecure, sixteen-year-old bookworm she's tried to bury is still only skin-deep, she must take a hard look at herself. Coming back may open her eyes to what her heart has always wanted. 

Do you quit, or continue despite insurmountable odds?

Shane Taggart has seen more tragedy before his twenty-first birthday than most people experience in a lifetime. Taking the responsibility of the world on his shoulders has become a way of life. There is no room for fun and socializing, until his head is turned by a vague high school memory with blonde hair and a pile of books. 

Letting go of the past while being immersed in it may be the only way Alley and Shane can move forward. Leaving behind the childhood images of who they were, they discover that seeking individual dreams can be attained through the strength found in each other, and that love may be the greatest influence of all.

Shane’s Burden is a standalone, full-length novel with a HEA

Rated PG – contains some mild swearing and kissing

    Out of many burdens Shane faced, he had not expected to fall for the girl he barely noticed in HS —Alley. At a memorial for a beloved teacher, they reminisce the a wisdom as he touched many lives. Alley is highly educated and hasn’t visited her childhood home now occupied by her grandfather and Shane manages and lives in the ranch next door. The ranch was up for sale as Alley returns home and Shane plans on offering a good price, but she doesn’t want her grandfather to sell. Some suspense, romance, family loyalties come into play and all revealed in this wonderful story.

    Could not put book down. Peggy L Henderson has a way of transporting the reader into the story. I was there, immersed in the lives of Shane and Alley. This book is perfect if the reader wishes to escape for awhile and relax with a great story about fate, family, love in the West. Highly recommend and look forward to the next book.
