Yellowstone Romance Series

The Yellowstone Romance Series


Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era.  The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she’s from the future.
How did a white woman suddenly appear in the remote Rocky Mountain wilderness? Trapper Daniel Osborne’s first instinct is to protect this mysterious and unconventional woman from the harsh realities of his mountains. While he fights his growing attraction to her, he is left frustrated by her lies and secrecy. 
Daniel shows Aimee a side of Yellowstone she’s never experienced. She is torn between her feelings for him, and exposing a secret that will destroy everything he holds as truth.  As her three months come to an end, she is faced with a dilemma: return to her own time, or stay with the man who opened her eyes to a whole new world. When the decision is made for her, both their lives will be changed forever.


City boy Chase Russell is on the fast track to self-destruction. A star athlete, he gets into trouble with drugs and alcohol. Fulfilling a community service sentence in Yellowstone National Park is the last thing he wants to do. After a night of drinking in the park, he wakes up to find his new friends gone, and everything around him has changed.Sarah Osborne grew up in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness. She can hunt and track right alongside the most experienced men. When some Indians drop a near-dead man off on her doorstep, she doesn’t know what to think. He’s convinced he’s from the future, and wants to find a way home.
Chase has no idea how he ended up time traveling to the past. He doesn’t know the first thing about surviving without modern conveniences. Finding your own food means a quick trip to the nearest fast food joint, not hunting and foraging for it. Time and again, his will is tested to stay alive in this untamed land. Is his growing love for a brave woman who shows him what it truly means to be a man strong enough to keep him in the past, or is he still determined to return to the ease and comforts of the future


A tender, heartfelt love story . . .
A man willing to risk everything, including his life and all he’s worked for, to free the woman he loves from an impossible situation.

Kyle Russell has worked with prominent men, led scouting expeditions through the Yellowstone country, and irritated more than a few Indian braves, but he will never duplicate his father’s legendary accomplishments.  Captured by a group of Crow warriors, his plans of escape are derailed when a lone white woman is brought into camp.
Kate Ellen Devereaux is on the run. Her guardian is dead, and she is lost in the Yellowstone wilderness.  Found by an Indian war party, she is brought into their camp and thrown at the feet of a white captive.  If he has plans of escape, she won’t be left behind.
Kyle’s father may be a legend in the territory, but he never had to deal with an eastern lady full of secrets, a woman who disrupts Kyle’s plans to see the Yellowstone area turned into a national park.  Convincing her that they are destined to be together may be a greater challenge than gaining support for the park movement. Kate can’t afford to show interest in any man, regardless of her growing attraction to her backwoods rescuer. Will her ultimate reason for rejecting him spell doom for their growing love, and the national park idea, or can Kyle find a way to rescue both?


Danica Jensen dreams of a man she knows she can never have. After one brief encounter five years ago, her heart is lost to him forever, and she won’t give up hope of seeing him again. Raised by a bitter father, she’s learned to be strong and resourceful on her own. When a pleasure trip to the newly created Yellowstone National Park turns into a battle for survival, her inner strength is tested like never before.

A woman like Danica doesn’t interest Josh Osborne. He’d be crazy to get involved with a bossy, strong-willed white woman. His mixed heritage has always made people wary of him. He prefers to be on his own, and his role as protector of the national park’s game allows for no attachments.

Danica’s dream of ever winning Josh’s heart shatters after a cruel twist of fate changes her life forever. Suddenly forced together, they must confront their deepest secrets. Josh can’t deny his growing respect and admiration for this brave woman, but will the bond they’ve forged be powerful enough to turn his feelings into love? When an unforeseen danger threatens their lives, Josh must protect more than the wild inhabitants of the park.


Dan Osborne has one ambition in life. He wants to be a permanent park ranger in Yellowstone National Park, a place where his family roots run deep. He’ll do just about anything to make his dream a reality. When a pretty tourist tells him an incredible story about his ancestors, his dreams might be realized sooner than he hoped.
Jana Evans’ best friend traveled back in time for true love. Not only is a weathered diary proof that she survived, so is the handsome park ranger standing before Jana now. Her immediate attraction to Aimee’s descendant leaves her disturbed and confused, and she rushes back home to the safety of a normal life. An unexpected phone call months later from the very man she wanted to put out of her mind forces her back to Yellowstone. He has news that Aimee met with an untimely death. Is she willing to follow him 200 years into the past to save her best friend’s life?
Dan is convinced that Jana holds the key to finding the device that makes time travel possible. He hasn’t stopped thinking about her since their one brief encounter months ago. A journey into the past could not only set things in place for his own future, but it might also bring Jana back into his life. Will the truth about his motives shatter any chance they might have at love?

To what lengths will a father go?

  1. Peggy another wonderful Yellowstone story that again I loved. So much interesting things take place and Mattew's story is brilliant and going after Addy makes a fascinating story. How he would survive his wounds was anyone's guess I'm sure was not this. Addy getting free from her captures was intriguing & her finding Mathew was a good coincidence. Awesome love story that developed.
    Yes another fantastic read.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, craftydr! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the latest glimpse into the lives of the Osbornes.

  2. I have all 3 Teton books and 9 of the Yellowstone stories. I cannot find Yellowstone Proposal. Where would I find that one? I usually purchase my books from Kobo. Thank you.

    1. Hi Francesca,
      Yellowstone Proposal was a very short (about the length of a chapter) story I wrote in collaboration with a group of authors doing a short story anthology. It's so short, it's not published on its own. The story fits nicely on the timeline between book 2 and 3 of the Teton Trilogy. I'd be more than happy to email it to you in an ePub file (for Kobo), if you'd like to email me.

    2. Email request sent - Thanks Peggy!!

  4. Hi Peggy. When do you expect to have Yellowstone Legacy out? Will you make us wait long?☺

    1. Hi PWestbrook - Thank you for stopping by! I'm not sure yet when Legacy will be out. I am working on it (taking a quick break from writing right now, actually), and I hope it won't be too much of a wait. Origins was an intricate book to write, and Legacy follows right on the heels of that book, and is just as complicated to get everything just right. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list (see top right on this blog for the signup) and you'll be informed as soon as it's done and available. I need to update this blog more often, too. ~Peggy

  5. Thanks! I have read all of the books four times, just finishing the origins this weekend. I saw the note at the end and just had to ask. They are so worth the wait! Al the best, Polly

    1. Thank you so much, Polly! I'm glad you've enjoyed them.If you're on Facebook, I have a book group there for the fans, and you get a lot of behind the scenes stuff, teasers, and progress on my writing (along with a ton of silliness ;-) )
      This is the link to join

  6. I found Teton Season of Joy today and have just finished reading it. 3 Months late I know, but at least I found it. Great Xmas story, Peggy. They say trouble comes in threes and you sure did give Lucas lots of troubles. In fact, I'd say there were 4 major troubles. A polar Plunge, an avalanche, a broken leg, falling down a crevasse, and having a baby. Make that 5 troubles!! Fortunately all of these did not happen to the same person.

    1. I threw all but the kitchen sink at Lucas :D He can handle it!

  7. I am so addicted to these books, first starting in Ibooks with the free ones, now I am buying them! Though I am reading some out of number, I am going back and reading one by one! I love the 'back in time' books! You are an awesome author, Peggy! Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much, Cheryl! So glad to hear you've enjoyed the books! (For some reason, I missed the notification about your post, so my apologies for the late response)

  8. Wonderful books and strong female characters, love that. Is there somewhere to find the ancestry chart for all these folks?

    1. Hi Betty! Thank you! So glad to hear you are enjoying the books. I have the family tree in pdf format. Please email me at, and I'd be happy to send it to you.

  9. I've enjoyed reading your books for so long. Your characters feel like real people to me and I enjoy hearing of their exploits. Thank you for the pleasure you give us readers keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you so much! :D Comments like that definitely keep me writing!

  10. Peggy, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these books. Please keep them coming. When is the next one due out?

    1. Hi Pennie, Thank you for stopping by! So thrilled to hear you enjoy the Yellowstone books. Book 7, Yellowstone Legacy, just released yesterday. It'll be while before the next one is done. I'm currently working on the next book in the Wilderness Brides book, a series that crosses over with the Teton books and the Yellowstone books - so familiar characters from both series will be making appearances. ~Peggy

  11. I've read several of your books. I love your characters, especially in the "Blemished Brides" series. They are so vivid in my mind as I read and by the end, whilst I'm happy with ending, I don't wamt to leave them. Just finished reading "Yellowstone Heart Song", so I'm happy I don't have to!

  12. Hi Peggy,
    I've read Second Chances Time and Yellowstone Romance (I'm on the 3rd book) series and love all of them. Do you have any plans on doing stories on Chase's and Sarah's daughters? Would love to read those too if you do. Thank you.

    1. I don't have any plans at the moment for full stories for the Russell girls. The second daughter, Kara, has a short story in Yellowstone Proposal, and has a cameo in Teton Splendor, and the first daughter, Emily, plays a big role in the novella Yellowstone Promise (but not as an adult)
      The Yellowstone Series has grown into a larger world with the spin-offs of the Teton Romance Series and the Wilderness Brides Series, and characters often cross over.

  13. When can I purchase Yellowstone Legends? I am grieving about (having read the others and) not having another to read~

    1. Hi Diane,
      Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm currently working on Yellowstone Legends. I don't have a release date yet, but if you're signed up for my newsletter (the sign-up form is in the top right-hand corner of this page), you'll be notified as soon as it's live. If you'd like more interaction with me and are active on Facebook, please consider joining my reader group.

      Also, if you enjoy the Yellowstone world, there are two spin-off series - the Teton Romance Series (formerly trilogy, but it's turning into a series) and the Wilderness Brides Series. Characters from all three series tend to cross over.
