about

“The author has a talent for bringing the historical west to life, realistically and vividly, and doesn’t shy away from some of the harder aspects of frontier life, even though it’s fiction. Recommended to readers who like sweeping western historical romances that are grounded with memorable, likeable characters and a strong sense of place.”

Noah Brandt is a successful blacksmith and businessman in Splendor, Montana, with few ties to his past as an ex-Union Army major and sharpshooter. Quiet and hardworking, his biggest challenge is controlling his strong desire for a woman he believes is beyond his reach.

Abigail Tolbert is tired of being under her father’s thumb while at the same time, being pushed away by the one man she desires. Determined to build a new life outside the control of her wealthy father, she finds work and sets out to shape a life on her own terms.

     Noah has made too many mistakes with Abby to have any hope of getting her back. Even with the changes in her life, including the distance she’s built with her father, he can’t keep himself from believing he’ll never be good enough to claim her.

     Unexpected dangers, including a twist of fate for Abby, change both their lives, making the tentative steps they’ve taken to build a relationship a distant hope. As Noah battles his past as well as the threats to Abby, she fights for a future with the only man she will ever love.

 Excerpt:

Abby rounded on him, arms crossed, angry eyes flashing up at him. “What do you think you were doing in there? Do you have so little respect for me you think you can touch me like that at the supper table with others all around us?” She drew in a deep breath, letting it out slowly as her heart continued to beat almost painfully in her chest.

Noah’s concern turned to discomfort at the agony he saw on her face. “I’m sorry. I’d never do anything to cause you embarrassment or pain.”

“Then what was that about?”

He looked toward the western mountains, noting the sun touching the tops of the highest peaks, and took a deep breath. Shoving his hands in his pockets so he wouldn’t do what he wanted and reach out to touch her, Noah took a step backward.

“Do you remember when you told me you no longer had feelings for me?” His voice was rough as he worked to swallow the lump in the back of his throat.

She let her arms drop, clasping her hands in front of her, feeling regret at how he’d interpreted her words.

“Yes…”

Noah had fought his attraction to her for too long. He needed to be honest, let her know how he felt, and discover if she still had any feelings for him at all.

“I need to know the truth, Abby. Do you feel anything for me?”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Read! She has done it again and, this time, I don't think she can top herself! With Sunrise Ridge, Shirleen Davies has created a book so realistic, so thought provoking and so full of attention grabbing twists that the reader can't help but call in sick for work, put on a pot of tea and read it cover to cover until they have gotten their fill of the author's mastery. Here is a quote from the author's bio that I thought I would share here as it relates so well to Sunrise Ridge: "But her real passion is writing emotionally charged stories of flawed people who find redemption through love and acceptance." This quote describes Sunrise Ridge perfectly! NO other author can speak to the reader through her characters as well as she can and it really helps you understand them, where they came from and what the Old West holds for them in the future. Buy this book, sit down and read it and you will see why she always receives glowing reviews for her books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Shirleen Davies has become one of my favorite authors. Her books are old fashioned western romances and each one is an amazing adventure. She is so passionate and has such a sweet soul. I loved this one and enjoyed my journey that it took me on. Noah and Abby is a delightful couple, who fight for the love and passion they share. The obstacles in their way are hard, from different back grounds and not everyone wants them to be together. Will they over come it all and live happily ever after. Read the book and find out. The detailing is stunning and made me feel like I was right there. It is written beautifully and an absolute joy to read. I hated to see it end and as always I want more. I give it my highest recommendation; it is a wonderful read, as are all of Shirleen's books. You will become hooked on her too
