Love Under Two Montanans

Jenny Collins figures romance will happen someday. She just isn’t ready for the impact of meeting Parker and Dale Benedict. Her someday is now, and those two Montanans have thrown her for a loop!

The men are drawn to Jenny, too. Once they each take a turn kissing her, and know they have the “sharing” gene, Parker and Dale set out to get to know Jenny.

Then Jenny’s adoptive parents show up, with news that puts everyone on guard. Not only did they skip a lot of red tape when they adopted Jenny, but someone has been snooping around, looking into old files. Her parents are worried, and so is Grandma Kate.

Because she knows something Jenny’s parents don’t. It’s not one party looking for Jenny, it’s two. Clearly, it’s time to circle the wagons—because the second party trying to find where that tiny baby disappeared to represents a danger to one of Lusty’s own—Jenny Collins.

This book is dedicated to my beloved husband, David. He is beginning his journey as an author and loving it. I never expected us to be able to share this craft in quite this way. What a joy!

David, along with all three of his siblings, was adopted. I have known and loved his two sisters and his brother; we’ve lost two of the three. Carol and Tom, I’m thinking of you both and trust you’re looking down on us all.


Morgan Ashbury, also writing as Cara Covington, has been a writer since she was first able to pick up a pen. In the beginning, it was a hobby, a way to create a world of her own, and who could resist the allure of that? Then, as she grew and matured, life got in the way, as life often does. She got married and had three children, and worked in the field of accounting, for that was the practical thing to do, and the children did need to be fed. And all the time she was being practical, she would squirrel herself away on quiet Sunday afternoons and write.

Most children are raised knowing the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule. Morgan’s children also learned the Paper Rule: Thou shalt not throw out any paper that has thy mother’s words upon it.

Believing in tradition, Morgan ensured that her children’s children learned this rule, too.

Life threw Morgan a curve when, in 2002, she underwent emergency triple bypass surgery. Second chances are to be cherished, and with the encouragement and support of her husband, Morgan decided to use hers to do what she’d always dreamed of doing—writing full-time.

Morgan has always loved writing romance. It is the one genre that can incorporate every other genre within its pulsating heart. Romance showcases all that humankind can aspire to be. And, she admits, she’s a sucker for a happy ending.

Morgan’s favorite hobbies are reading, cooking, and traveling—though she would rather you didn’t mention that last one to her husband. She has too much fun teasing him about having become a “Traveling Fool” of late.

Morgan lives in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, with a nine-pound Morkie dog who thinks he’s a German shepherd, and her husband of forty-six years, brand new retiree and aspiring author, David.
