The Women of Crooked Creek

Historical Western Romance/Western Fiction


Four courageous women, an untamed land, and the daring to embark on an unforgettable adventure. 

Meet the remarkable women willing to forge new lives in post-Civil War Montana Territory. 

"Emma of Crooked Creek" 

Emma Hawkins is a dedicated doctor in the little town of Crooked Creek, Montana Territory. Casey Latimer is a wounded soldier in search of a new home and a new beginning. When Casey, battered and bruised, quite literally falls at Emma's feet, she is bound by duty to help him. What happens next is something Emma never expected. 

"Hattie of Crooked Creek" 

Married three months before the war and now a widow, Harriett McBride can either give up and sell her ranch or fight for the life she and her husband came west to build. With the help of a friend and a stranger, she must stop the one who threatens all she holds dear. When Hattie is faced with an unexpected choice, will she bury her heart on the battlefield forever or find a way to love again? 

"Briley of Crooked Creek" 

Far from home and with no family left, Briley Donaghue answers an advertisement from a rancher seeking a wife in Montana Territory. She arrives in Crooked Creek to find an empty cabin, a letter from her fiancé, and too many unanswered questions. Alone and uncertain, Briley forges a new life in an unfamiliar land. 

"Clara of Crooked Creek" 

No longer willing to allow society’s opinion to influence her life, Clara Stowe sought a change, and what better place than the frontier. With her young daughter by her side, she embarks on an unexpected undertaking to the Montana Territory. With grit and determination, they arrive in Crooked Creek to shape the life Clara had always dreamed of and honor the memory of the one they lost.

A Note from MK

Dearest Reader, 

Emma, Hattie, Briley, and Clara have brought such joy to my life, and I cannot wait to continue their adventures with the next books in the series. They have all been through so much, and survived. The women of this series are tender and strong, and the men are honorable and chivalrous. Together, they all find a way to overcome the obstacles life and the aftermaths of war have thrust upon them. I am so excited to share their journeys with you. You'll have a chance to meet many characters from this unique Montana town, but for now, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into Crooked Creek.

Be well, be kind, and enjoy!

~ Mk
