A Happy Author with a New Series

I am happy to be back on the SuperAuthors blog!  I stopped contributing to the blog for a while because it's been so long since I had a book out that I stopped feeling like a real SuperAuthor.  So I’m excited to announce that the first book in my new series comes out in March and the second book will be out in July.  I’m looking forward to sharing them with you and now I feel like a real Superromance author again!

The series is called Sierra Legacy.  It’s been quite an experience to write.  The characters haunt me— they've been following me around for almost two years now, trying to tell me their stories. They have strong voices and huge hearts. Some of them have made big mistakes.  There are four books, and each story is a piece of the legacy left by The Hoffmans, a troubled family from way over on the wrong side of the tracks in my fictional Eastern Sierra town of Benson, California. 

The first two books are about the two youngest siblings, Nora and Wade Hoffman. They've returned to Benson to restore the family property, Marker Ranch, which was abandoned when they moved away after high school and their father and older brothers fled to Mexico to escape criminal charges.

Life is never simple— especially life in a Superromance!  Nora is a biologist who finds herself embroiled in a struggle to save the local wild horses.  She vowed never to return to Benson, and now that she's back, she has to face a man she loved, and was never able to forget.  Wade has just left the army and is having difficulties adjusting to life after combat.  And both of them have to make their peace with the uneasy welcome the town of Benson offers... no one is happy to see the Hoffmans back at Marker Ranch!

And books three and four of the series?  Well, without giving too much away, there's a Hoffman who makes an unexpected return. And in his attempts to start a new life, he has some pretty big decisions to make. Decisions that don't just affect his life — his actions have consequences for the woman he used to love. 

Sierra Legacy is full of twists and turns and troubles and triumphs.  But most of all there is love — deep, soulful, life-altering love — the kind that changes everything.

The first book, Wild Horses, is Nora's story.  I so hope you enjoy it!  And to celebrate its release, I'm giving away an advance copy here.  But there's a catch.  I don't actually have my advance copies yet. But let's go ahead with the giveaway and as soon as I have my copies, (any day now!) I will mail one to the winner.

There will be more book-release fun in my newsletter and on social media!  To keep up with it all, please sign up for my newsletter at

Hi Everyone!
First of all, thank you for your comments and for joining me on the blog this weekend! I'm sorry I didn't comment back like I usually do, but I have been revising a book all weekend and have barely come up for air! Anyway, I don't want to post the winner on the actual blog today, because then it will get in the way of the February releases, which deserve the spotlight! So I'm going to hope that you all check these comments.

I decided to pick TWO winners, because we got more comments than I expected (which is wonderful! Thank you!) So... drumroll please... our randomly drawn winners are Penney and Laurie Iglesias. Congratulations Penney and Laurie and please send me your mailing addresses at

And everyone else, thank you for joining in! If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter and/or join my newsletter (at there will be some fun giveaways coming up. In fact, I'm sending a newsletter out tonight with a really fun giveaway opportunity!

Thanks again! ~ Claire
