Exciting News! Currently, Rye’s Reprieve, which features a gift surgeon with a secret in 1886 Montana Territory, is hovering between #7 and #8 on the Kindle World Westerns Top 100 list. The novel is published by Amazon in Debra Holland’s Montana Sky Kindle World.
In 1886, gifted surgeon Rye Rawlins is trapped by a tragic secret so painful that he denies his profession and buries himself in a gold mine in Montana Territory. But saving people is second nature, whether it’s doctoring a man mauled by a mountain lion or battling a wolf to save a child.
Veterinarian and horse rancher Missouri Harper suffers through the worst winter in Montana history to provide for three beautiful sisters and an ailing aunt. Dangerous storms, privation, and wild predators make survival precarious.
Rye comes to Missouri’s aid, putting his life in danger and Missouri in his debt. As they fall in love, his secret and her promise to remain a spinster to protect the land for her family force them to look within to discover the cost of love.
