I recently discovered #1LineWed and thought it was a neat way to share snippets from my June 2016 release, HIS DESTINY BRIDE. I created images to go along with each line from the book and here’s all of the images in one video! Enjoy!
“After a night of excessive drinking at a Halloween costume party, single dad Nolan Murphy and office manager Katie Ledbetter share a night of passion…while wearing masks. In the harsh light of day, with their masks removed, they decide it’s best to forget it ever happened. But with sparks flying whenever they’re near each other, that’s unlikely.
Butler returns to Destiny with a fantastic friends-to-lovers romance. Her “mixing business with pleasure” trope is lively and well penned. The loving, boisterous Murphy clan and teenaged co-stars are critical story components, but it’s the couple that put the icing on — maybe, just maybe — a wedding cake.”
They’ve each won a signed copy of HIS DESTINY’S BRIDE (which will go in the mail as soon as I get my author copies!) and a Amazon $25 gift card!

While in New York City this past July to attend the 2015 Romance Writers of America® annual conference I was also celebrating a pretty special birthday (the big 5-0!) and the milestone of my thirteenth book being published!
Wanting to do something extra special to mark the occasions, and as a lover of all things vintage, I knew how to do both when I stumbled across images from a photography studio that were stunning. And what little girl hasn’t dreamed of playing fashion model for a day?
Very happy DESTINED TO BE A DAD received 4 Stars from RT Book Reviews!
When a boisterous 15-year-old Brit shows up on Liam Murphy’s doorstep announcing she’s his daughter, he’s shocked — and skeptical. This is not Missy Dobbs’ plan. Years ago, she was a foreign exchange student and she and Liam were classmates and first loves. Now, her precocious daughter can’t wait to tell him for herself: it’s a girl!
Butler delivers excitement and empathy, super Wyoming settings and great characters in this second-chance romance. Her Brit-isms are spot-on, and the formation of the new family inspiring and her handling of the delicate dynamics of this large cast is excellent.
One of things I loved best about writing THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK is the bucket list that my heroine, Vanessa created as a young girl with her best friend. They add more to the list as adults, especially after seeing how many items they’d managed to complete, but then…well, Vanessa is now on a mission to cross off each remaining item. And she’s decided Jonah Dalton is just the man to help her!
The front of the book shares a sneak peak, but here’s the entire list. It was fun to try to get as many of these as possible into the story!
Vanessa Brent sees Montana as a chance to find her muse, keep promises and start over after the tragic loss of her BFF. She doesn’t expect a sexy architect to open her eyes to passion and help complete her bucket list. Architect Jonah Dalton couldn’t have Rust Creek Falls fast enough when his marriage ended; now he’s back and a beautiful artist is making him think of the future.
Butler’s heartfelt tearjerker exhilarates. Her expressive narrative tells the fateful tale of her lovelorn hero and grieving, talent-blocked heroine’s rock road to love. The first kiss is sensational, the banter playful and the love scenes intense.
Avoiding her family and the fallout from a personal betrayal, L.A. socialite Priscilla Lennox heads to Wyoming to help a friend plan a charity bachelor auction. There is one hunky bachelor that she wants for herself. Dean Zippenella’s had a dating drought, partly because of his last disastrous relationship and partly because his dog, Daisy, hates women. But a sensual, out-of-his league debutante melts both of their hearts. Butler’s setting is the perfect backdrop for her Jersey transplant hero and cosmopolitan heroine’s romance. The visual narrative thoughtfully follows the romance from the impressive first meeting to the fiery finish.
My October release, FLIRTING WITH DESTINY is out in bookstores now (will be available October 1st as an eBook!) and it’s great to be back in my town of Destiny, Wyoming with one of my favorite families…the Murphys!
I first introducted the Murphys in my April 2012 release, HAVING ADAM’S BABY and now it’s Devlin’s time to find his happily ever after! As the middle of six brothers, Dev has always been a natural born charmer who relies on his good looks and great smile to get out of trouble until a horrific crash in the company helicopter he was piloting left him lost in the forest for three days with a broken body. Eight months later and he’s recovered–for the most part–but then he meets a very special lady who agrees to help him…even though it’s the last thing she wants to do!
FLIRTING WITH DESTINY will also be avaible in Australia and the United Kingdom starting October 1st and here are covers! It’s amazing how different my hero looks all around the world!
4 Stars! “Butler’s return to Destiny, Wyo., is touching, her premise is timely and moving and the star-crossed couple and their co-stars make the read more real.” -RT BookReviews
This month I’m celebrating my latest release, THE MAVERICK’S SUMMER LOVE, Book #2 in the “Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys” continuity, here in the United States, but it’s also very exciting to see the book is being released by Mills & Boon in the United Kingdom (part of Harlequin Enterprises) and in Australia at the same time…each with it’s own cover!
It’s fun to see how my couple, Dean Pritchett & Shelby Jenkins, are protrayed across the world. Of course, the United Kingdom and Australia books are actually 2-1 books, and I am combined with the terrific Brenda Harlen, so maybe the UK and Australian covers reflect her hero and heroine! 😀 At least both our heroines are blondes (and single mothers)!
