After her mother’s untimely death, Emma Monroe’s dreams to become a teacher are dashed. She takes a job as maid and cook at the local Stratton Ranch, where she endures humiliation and hardship in order to provide for her ailing father and younger brother.

When she’s asked to care for Skye, the young half-Indian girl most family members refuse to claim, Emma finally finds the purpose she craves.
Riley Stratton has it all, or so it seems. Growing up as the youngest son of the rich and powerful John Stratton, Riley stands to inherit a legacy of greatness in the Stratton Ranch. On the surface, his family looks like they have it all, but manipulation, deceit, and an ever-present quest for power leave him desperate for change. Yet his father has made it clear: do things the Stratton way, or face alienation and disinheritance.
As Riley and Emma choose between honor, dreams, and expectations—not to mention the love they can no longer deny—their first steps prove how quickly the situation can spin into danger. When their best efforts threaten the lives and hopes of those closest to them, it becomes clear the decisions they make will change the course of their lives forever.

"I have a secret.
A very secret secret.
I can become two. As in, split in half. Well, not in half—that’d be gross. But I can be in two places at once." ~ Daniel
On the outside, Daniel Everhart looks normal. Well, except for his freaked-out eyes. On the inside, he’s a genetic mutant side show with stupid abilities he can’t even talk about. To anyone. Not even his best friend.
Why can’t he just be normal?
But when he learns Earth has a sister planet named Caterra. . . when he learns the bridge that links them has been severed by the evil Moloch, who wants control over both. . . when he learns only he can reconnect the two , . . he has no choice but to follow his destiny. If he doesn’t, he’ll die.
If he doesn’t, everyone he loves will die.
If he doesn’t, Moloch wins.
But are his abilities enough—is he enough—to stand against the powers of evil? Can a skinny, freak-eyed kid from Bowman Ridge, Texas, really reunite two worlds?
Maybe not alone. But with a little help from some kick-sass friends, anything is possible.
chasing dreams book cover “They only invited you here to give the appearance of being a charitable institution,” Jill said in that fakey-sweet voice. “There’s nothing wrong with charity, but Columbia prefers to keep its charity cases on the other side of the world, not right here under their roof.”
That did it. Rebecca pushed herself to a sitting position and launched off the top bunk. Her feet slammed on the floor. She pointed her finger in Jill’s face in a swift, sure motion she was quite sure she could never duplicate. “Look here, Miss Prissy-Bow, you’ve got a lot of nerve saying—”
The door popped open and Rebecca’s words came to a halt. Hannah stood in the doorway, and her expression held a mixture of shock and disappointment and . . . and something else Rebecca couldn’t quite identify. The smug look on Jill’s face only magnified Rebecca’s humiliation when she realized Hannah had just witnessed the height of Rebecca’s temper, and none of Jill’s snide remarks.
As of this moment, it looked as if Jill might be right, at least where Rebecca was concerned. Rebecca didn’t have a snowball’s chance in Texas to win this scholarship.
