"Kill or be killed historical romance with bandits, Pinkerton agents, bounty hunters, mystery and more. Melissa Lenhardt writes with passion and does not hold anything back." -RT Book Reviews

Laura Elliston and William Kindle are on the run-from the Army and from every miscreant in the West eager to claim the $500 bounty for Laura's capture as their own. But the danger isn't just from those pursuing them. Laura and Kindle each have demons of their own and a past that won't stay dead. Exhausted, scared, scarred, and surrounded by enemies, neither realizes the greatest danger is yet to come.

Blood Oath is the second novel in a gripping historical fiction series.

STILLWATER Photo Contest Running Through November 10

It's football season and what better way to celebrate my debut mystery, STILLWATER, and its small town setting than with a football themed photo contest? 

Texas Forever

Those words were immortalized by Tim Riggins in the phenomenal television show, Friday Night Lights. Free of caricature or derision for its setting and the people who live there, FNL is the best representation of small town Texas I've ever seen or read in fiction. 

The Contest

Take a photo of a football game - Pop Warner, middle school, high school, college, pro, intramural, backyard - or anything related to football - equipment, cheerleaders, the band, the fans, the concession stand, Halloween costumes - and post it to social media with the hashtag


and you'll be entered to win a

Dallas Cowboys helmet signed by Jason Witten.
