Josephine, Josie,
Forrester FOLLOWS her DREAM and heads to the Eastern Plains of Colorado to be
the doctor for the new town of Kiowa Wells. She faces the challenges of not
only being a woman doctor, but earning the trust of the people in and near the
town. Her life is complicated when William Murphy, a lawman, becomes her
patient after being shot and losing his memory. Can these two find the love and
happiness they deserve, despite a threat from the past? Can they get past their
own beliefs about life and love and societies expectations to find the love and
happiness they both deserve?

Snippet  2.  

The
early summer heat wave of the past week drove Will’s patience past all control.
He was sitting in Josie’s office, his hands moving under the bandage on his
head.
“Fussing
with your bandages won’t make your wound heal any faster,” Josie said grinning.
“A
lot you know, lady doctor,” Will shot back.
“Insulting
me will not help either,” Josie laughed. The look of frustration on Will’s face
was too ludicrous to keep the laugh inside.
“I’ll
show you,” Will snarled as he began unwinding the bandage on his head. Almost
as quickly, the kitten, seeing movement pounced on the flying ends.
It
was too much, Josie laughed so hard tears were falling. She held her ribs,
gasping for breath.
Sheepishly,
Will grinned, reaching over to pet the kitten. “Perhaps you could…”
Still
gasping, Josie could only nod her head in assent, her green eyes sparkling at
Will’s discomfort. She knew she should be professional, but between the kitten
and Will’s discomfort, she just couldn’t keep a straight face.
In
the meantime, the kitten reverted to its ancestral self, attacking the bandage
with a vengeance. The way the kitten pounced, attacking the ends, then pulling,
it appeared she might manage to topple Will over.
Jumping
up, Josie picked up and moved the kitten away. Taking a pair of scissors, Josie
began cutting the bandage from around Will’s head. Once she’d removed the
bandage, she gently examined the wound from the bullet. “Well, you’re healing
nicely, but that wound is still looking like a piece of rare meat.”
“Are
you saying you could place my head between two pieces of bread?” Will grinned.


“I doubt it would be very good, too tough,” Josie retorted.
