Peggy Henderson Yellowstone series is a MUST for true lovers of.. well, true love. I expected your run of the mill romance novel. I was very surprised at how quickly I fell in love with the story, and not just the characters, but the setting as well. Months after reading this book, I found myself still thinking about the story and how much I enjoyed it. I decided to read it again, only to discover it to be better the second time around, and that to my surprise, there were more books. I quickly purchased books 2-5 and read them in one weekend. I was swept away with every word on every page. There is just something about the writing style, character development and settings of these books that kept my enthralled all the way to the end. Each book was beautiful. (Amazon review) Note from PeggyI never thought I'd be a writer, much less publish a book some day. I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I guess life just had other plans for me. When my husband and I decided to start a family, vet school pretty much went out the window. I used to work with a vet who had three children while going through vet school. To this day, she is my hero. I live with my husband and two teenage sons in southern California. I have a Welsh pony and a miniature horse (down-sized from a barn of six horses). A crazy Labrador retriever who is a food vacuum, three cats, a Holland Lop bunny, two parakeets, three bearded dragons (my compromise with my sons when they wanted a snake), and a small flock of chickens complete our menagerie of critters. I can't imagine my life without my animals. My dream is to live in Montana some day. Three years ago, I began writing a story that, for whatever reason, was stuck in my head for almost a year. I have been an avid romance reader for a long time, and the idea took hold to - why not? - write my own! What a simple idea, right? It has been a long and difficult journey from my first sentence to a completed, and hopefully polished, manuscript. Today, I have a completed series of 5 books and a novella in what I called The Yellowstone Romance Series, a first book in my new Second Chances Time Travel Romance Series, and I am currently working on a trilogy set in the Grand Tetons. I hope you enjoy this excerpt from Yellowstone Redemption.... Visit Peggy’s Blog Okay. If she didn’t want to talk, he’d play along for now. At some point she would have to speak to him again. Kyle guided Blackjack towards the mountains until they reached the banks of the Firehole, then veered south to head upstream along the river. The rocky terrain began a gradual uphill climb, leaving the river to carve a course below them. The tall lodgepole pines became sparser the further they went. They left the river below while traveling along a narrow trail higher up the mountain. Soon, the loud rushing sounds of a waterfall could be heard above the noise from the many cascades as the river churned and tumbled its way through the canyon. Kyle turned in the saddle. They’d ridden single file for close to an hour now in silence. The falls would be just ahead around the bend, and he wanted to witness Kate’s reaction when she saw them. Her hands gripped the saddle horn, and she allowed Rosie to pick her own way, the reins hanging loosely along the mare’s neck. Kyle’s heart swelled at the expression on her face. Her head turned in all directions as she absorbed the beauty of the mountains and the river just below them. “Look up ahead, Kate. You should be able to see the waterfall now.” Rounding a bend, the falls of the Firehole River tumbled some forty feet down a wall of rocks as the river swerved sharply to the right into the canyon. It wasn’t the most spectacular water feature in the area, but it was the closest. Her eyes widened in awe, and a brilliant smile formed on her lips that caused his gut to tighten painfully. If only she’d favor him with such admiration. “The trail widens around the bend, and we can stop for a while if you’d like.” He had to raise his voice considerably over the roaring rush of the water. Kate eagerly nodded her head. Kyle pulled Blackjack to a stop along a flat outcropping, and jumped from the saddle. Kate was already trying to dismount Rosie on her own. She leaned forwards awkwardly, trying to swing her right foot over the saddle. Her dress somehow caught on the cantle. Rosie, unaccustomed to a woman’s skirts waving at her sides, took a few nervous sideways steps, her ears twitching back and forth. “Here, I’ve got you,” Kyle said, coming up beside the mare, and reached for Kate’s waist. It wasn’t a moment too soon. Rosie decided at that moment to jump sideways in an effort to rid herself of the flapping skirts. Kate’s left foot slipped out of its stirrup, the horse’s movements sending her off-balance, and she fell backwards into his arms. Kyle twisted her body around to face him, and with a surprised shriek at her near fall, she ???????????????????????????Q?????????????????????????Q??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!???????????????????????????????????????????()()?a ()H()AP()??????????????-???e????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!??????????????????????????????????????????q$????????'?e??????????????????t????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????-???e??e??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????e?????????????????????????????e??????????????????????????!????????????????????????????????????????????!????????????????????????????????????????????Q?????????????!???????????????????????????????-????????e???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????]?????M?????????????????????????????????????????????q'?e?????????????????????-????t??????????????????????????????q$???????????????????????????????????????????????????t?-???e???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????]??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????-????????????????????????????????????????q%?e?????????????????-???t??????????qQ????????????????????????$????????????????????????????????????t??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????M????????????????????????M??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????q'?e???????????????????????????-?????$???????????????t?M????????????qe??????????????????????????????????$??????????????Q????e?????????????????t?????????????????????9????????????????-????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!??????????????????????????????M?????????e???????????????????????????????????????????????!?????????????????????????????????M???????????????????q$??????????????????????????????????????????-???e?????????????????????????????????'?e?????????????$?????????????????????????????????????????????????????e??????????????t????????????????Q???e?????????????Q???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????-?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????q1????????????????e???????????????????e??????????????t????????????????????????????????Q????????????????????????????!????????e??????????????????????????????????]??????????????????????????????????????????????-??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????((
