After a cataclysmic tragedy leaves her alone in the world, Gabriela Kincaid climbs into her father's ancient pickup and strikes off on her own, turning her back on everything she knows. No destination in mind, moving toward nothing but distance. Just somewhere. Fate chooses her destination, and she finds herself in Jasper Ridge, Idaho, a small town in the shadow of the Sawtooth Range. With nowhere else to get to, and no way to get anywhere else, she decides to make her home there. Heath Cahill is fighting the demons of his own horrific past. A son of the most important rancher in Jasper Ridge, he's tethered to the town, so he's made his escape inward, turning his back on any new chances for a happy life. But he sees something in the eyes of the young woman who walks into the town saloon: a guarded pain he recognizes as like his own. He tries to resist the pull he feels, but with a nudge from Fate, friends, and family, Heath opens his heart again. Together, they find love and hope for happiness. First, though, they must face a past that neither has escaped.

Poetry. Winner of the 2013 Sawtooth Poetry Prize. In a long-form poetry that tirelessly makes its case for its own heritage, PRACTICE ON MOUNTAINS documents a striving lover through eight weeks of various literatures, reflections, and desires. The poems and translations in this book value experience—the lived poem. The metaphysic of the literary love affair leads to its beautiful, chaotic, thoughtful pile of lyrical musings. Wallace Stevens writes, "it is not the reason / That makes us happy or unhappy. The bird sings." H.D., Thoreau, Li Po, Pound, classic country hymns, Glenn Gould, and the poet's friends are called on, among many others, in the reckless appropriations that provide for such a poetry. "Self-knowledge requires, strangely enough, a means to quell introspection, that self-thinking of self and all that there occurs which but mimics the understanding to which it cannot arrive. David Bartone's PRACTICE ON MOUNTAINS offers itself as an astonishingly vivid record of just such a practice, seeking some enlightenment it is also too savvy to trust exists. The poetry finds an oddity of voice absolutely necessary, daily speech that contains within it shards of poetic fragment, a kind of lyric discursiveness that always interrupts its own method when that method threatens to become merely such. It's wonderfully self-searching without being narcissistic, tied into love's agonies in ways familiar but strikingly honest, deprecating but audacious, learned but humble. It brings to its readers a primary document of the mind reading through the heart's various damage."—Dan Beachy-Quick

Pipe: In every man's life there comes a day of reckoning. It's the day darkness is exposed and sinners are punished for their trespasses. A day when loyalty is destroyed and a man is left in ruins. When he walks away from his club and loses his religion. Whoever said from the ruins they will rise again never walked a mile in my shoes or the pair of red ones I was left holding. Layla: He's bitter, cold and angry. He's seen his share of heartache. Lived through tragedy and despair. He's my neighbor. The man I know should stay away from. The man who will destroy what's left of me if I get too close. He's Lee Jameson, and I'm Layla Milano. This is our story. The story of two people left in ruins forced to rise again.

Heart's ease is the second installment in The Northwomen Sagas, following God's Eye. When raiders from the North land in Olga's world and take it over, she is captured and made a slave. She and her people suffer at the hands of creatures that seem more beasts than men, and not even her talent and skill as a healer can help them. But one barbarian, big and golden, seems different from the others. He doesn't revel or partake in the suffering of the new slaves, and, when he learns that Olga is a healer who knows some of their words, he releases her from her bonds. The raiders stake claim to Olga's world and mean to settle it, and she and the rest of her people who survived make a new community with the invaders. The barbarians who destroyed her world and made her a slave grow to be her friends and her equals. The friendship she forms with the one who cut her bonds is the deepest of them all. Leif is a valiant and esteemed warrior who's raided for many summers. As a leader in this new world they mean to settle, he forges deep, close ties with those who'd been only allies, and sometimes enemies, and with the native people of this new land. In particular, he's drawn to the dark-haired healer, whose tiny body holds the will and spirit of a mighty raider. Leif is deeply loyal to the jarl who's treated him as a son. When the jarl arrives to view their success, Leif struggles to understand the ways his mentor has grown cruel and deceitful and to see the man he's loved as a father, whose sons he loves as brothers. But he recognizes the brutal lies for what they are. Torn between the man to whom he'd long ago sworn his unconditional fealty and the friends to whom he is devoted, Leif makes a devastating choice, trying as best he can to save those he loves, at any cost to himself. Even at the cost of their love for him. The consequences of his choice are severe. Perhaps too severe to allow forgiveness. But until there is forgiveness, there can never be ease. Note: explicit sex and violence.

A man stayed down, in the midst of the turmoil, and tried to find a home in the world that had become.

Note: Love & Friendship is a companion novella to the Night Horde MC saga. It occurs within the timeline of Nolan: Return to Signal Bend, and constitutes a substantial spoiler for events throughout the entire saga. With that in mind... This is a story of love uprooted by loss. This is a story of love finding new ground. This is a story of love taking root in friendship. This is a story of love learning how to bloom again. This is a story of life growing strong again. This is the story of Bart and Cory.

The only constant is change. The Night Horde SoCal is the new charter of the Night Horde MC, one that rose up from the ashes of a violent war with a drug cartel. The Horde's outlaw days ended with that war. Muse, like many of his SoCal brothers, was a member of an MC that was destroyed in that fight. A former Nomad enforcer, he's struggled to be settled in a straight life. But Southern California is his home, his family is now Horde, and he has responsibilities. So he keeps his head down and does his best to take care of his family and responsibilities. Sidonie has recently moved to Madrone, the town where the Night Horde SoCal has set up its base, to begin her job as a social worker for San Bernardino County. It's work she feels a sense of mission to do. Muse and Sid meet under stressful circumstances, on opposite sides of a dilemma. When Muse tries to bring her to his side, a fire catches between them. As their feelings for each other deepen, the work of the SoCal charter becomes dangerous again. But the club isn't the only potential danger for Sid. Her own work carries risk, too. Muse needs to keep her safe. Sid needs to stand on her own. They won't have a future together until they find the place where those needs merge and make them stronger. Strength & Courage is the first book in the Night Horde SoCal series. Though this series, and thus its backstory, spins off from the Signal Bend Series, and though key characters from that series appear here, this focus is on the SoCal charter. If you haven't been to Signal Bend yet, you won't be lost in Madrone. Note: explicit sex & violence.
