The father they feared and hated is dead. Yet Elk Springs, Oregon, remains a town with secrets...

Patton's Daughter: Renee

Renee Patton is a cop determined to see justice done. But the discovery of a human skull has stirred up her own ghosts—as well as feelings for the rancher who found it. For Daniel Barnard, she believes she can give up the past and have a future. If only his mother wasn't hiding something.

Patton's Daughter: Meg

For single mom and sheriff's deputy Meg Patton, it's time to reconcile with her sisters and get on with life. She actually starts to think she could do that with Scott McNeil, a man she meets when he agrees to care for an abandoned baby. But then he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of the infant's mother. Meg has to prove he's innocent—for her sake, as well as his.


About Janice Kay Johnson

See more books from this Author
Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!Janice graduated from Whitman College with a B.A. in history and then received a master's degree in library science from the University of Washington. She was a branch librarian for a public library system until she began selling her own writing.She has written six novels for young adults and one picture book for the read-aloud crowd. Rosamund was the outgrowth of all those hours spent reading to her own daughters, and of her passion for growing old roses. Two more of her favorite books were historical novels she wrote for Tor/Forge. The research was pure indulgence for someone who set out intending to be a historian!Janice is divorced and has raised her two daughters in a small, rural town north of Seattle, Washington. She's an active volunteer and board member for Purrfect Pals, a no-kill cat shelter, and foster kittens often enliven a household that already includes a few more cats than she wants to admit to!Janice loves writing books about both love and family--about the way generations connect and the power our earliest experiences have on us throughout life. Her Superromance novels are frequent finalists for Romance Writers of America RITA awards.
