Awakened by frantic pounding, Joe Chandler opens his
door to a blast of wind and rain, and two strangers on his
front porch. They’re on the run. She’s pregnant. And, about
to deliver.

After Joe assists in the delivery, Sherman Taylor explains
that he overheard a conversation about a surrogate mother
deal gone bad and his lawyer/uncle’s plan to steal a relative’
s baby. It had to be Loren. Their minister in Phoenix, Blake
Adams sent them to Joe for help.

Joe promises to protect Loren and her baby while Sherman
returns Phoenix. He must get back before anyone links him

Hidden in the cottage that Matilda dubbed the Wren's Nest,

Author Note
Myrtle Hill, Oklahoma is a small town, created in my imagination along
with the people who live there. They're anxious to tell their stories and

Wren's Nest is second in the series, and takes place chronologically,
however it can stand alone but readers will recognize characters from
Rogue Trust. The third book in the series, LUCY'S MANSION, will
continue Becca and J.T.'s story.

I hope you will become friends with the people in Myrtle Hill, their
Phoenix connection, and me. I love readers.
