Brian & Sarah Trilogy


This story is part of a New Year's Quote Challenge on the Dr. Quinn Forum.  I used a quote from the movie Enchanted and made it into a story about Brian and Sarah reuniting after all these years.  It's a sweet story of falling in love all over again.

Authors note: This takes place in Boston ten years after The Heart Within


Sequel to Falling.  This was written on a whim.  It's a sweet story that picks up where it's predecessor left off.


Sequel to Catching.  A beautiful touching story to close this trilogy.

She was unaware of how rugged a town Colorado Springs would be, and how much she would need to adjust to a new way of life.

Adrienne begins to settle in little by little each day as her new life begins to unfold.

Authors note: This takes place after Tin Star and before Michaela gives birth to Katie.
