About the author:
I live on an Indiana farm with my husband, two of my four children, a dog and a barn cat. When I'm not writing or hauling grain, I enjoy canning food. Before writing my first book. I worked twenty-five years in the medical field of Optometry. During that time I wrote a human-interest story in a medical newsletter and have had my poetry published in "Speer Presents."
Although writing is my first love, I'm devoted to our military and am honored to organize a yearly event where our community sends care packages to soldiers overseas. Their bravery inspires me.
Threads of Betrayal
Monica Koldyke Miller
Reagan Burnsfield has no interest in finding himself a wife. But that's exactly what he must do when a lumber contract falls through and threatens the family business. Marrying the beautiful debutante Amanda Bruester will solve his short term need as well as give him the wife of his dreams.
His courtship is hindered until they are arrested after stumbling upon bounty hunters hotly pursuing runaway slaves. In the ensuing scandal, Amanda chooses marriage over betraying her Aunt Gabriella's illegal activities in the Underground Railroad.
Yet, despite being properly wed, another suitor, Derrick Banning, is determined to break apart their hasty marriage. He fancies it is he, not "that arrogant lumberman," who should be enjoying Amanda's wealth.
While snowed in at his lumber camp, Amanda discovers papers that imply Reagan's offer of marriage wasn't the sacrifice she thought it to be. Despite his assurances he acted to protect her, Amanda begins to doubt everything about him.
To complicate matters, mysterious scratches on Reagan's back seem to point to infidelity, further proving he's the untrustworthy knave Derrick claims him to be. When a prostitute's body is found in his office and Reagan is arrested for murder, Amanda flees to her Aunt's house until the mystery can be solved.
