I’m thrilled to be part of the 79th Copper Mountain Rodeo series from Tule Publishing. My story features Cody Starr, the youngest brother in my Starr Brothers of Montana series. This book made me laugh and cry as I wrote it. Cody is so tough yet so vulnerable, I just love him. I hope you do, too.

No good deed goes unpunished...

Rough rider Cody Starr relishes his reputation as the bad boy on the rodeo circuit. When he impulsively leaves his prize money as a tip for a struggling waitress so her little boy can get a heart operation, Cody keeps quiet about it, knowing he’s only atoning for past sins. His good deed is outed when Kelly Reid drives across three states to thank him in person. Despite the fact that Kelly forces him to confront his past and question everything, Cody starts to fall hard for her. 

Single mom Kelly Reid thinks Cody is a Hero with a capital H. She believes in Cody, but she knows that nothing long term can come of their intense attraction until he believes in himself. Is Cody the love ‘em and leave ‘em guy he claims to be or could he possibly be the man of her dreams?

THE SECRET SON (formerly THE MONTANA SON

RUBY Award winner

Book 1 in the Sweet Home Montana series

JKilby SecretSon 300

Alex Chernoff is just blowing through town....

A birthday card out of the blue from his estranged father sends successful Seattle marketing man Alex Chernoff on a detour to Cherry Lake in search of answers about his past. A day, maybe two, to tie up loose strings and he’ll be out of there, heading for Mexico, margaritas and blondes in bikinis.

Emma Stanhope is all too familiar with hot, rich, entitled guys like Alex. They never hang around for long, especially not for a Plain Jane like herself. No problem. She’s smart and logical, like any good scientist, and knows better than to lose her heart.

What Emma doesn’t count on is chemistry—of the romantic kind.

Alex, when he learns that he’s a secret from his father’s real family, can’t stay even if he wanted to.
