The Cowboy for Hire

(The first book in the Dream Maker series)
A novel by

It's 1905, early in the Silent Film era, and orphan Amy Wilkes is "discovered" by producer Martin Tafft at a Pasadena Health Spa. Whisked away to the movie-making set, Amy is glamorized and placed before her leading man: a rugged, oh-so-handsome Arizona cowboy named Charlie Fox.

Charlie, another "natural", needs money for his ranch, not the naive attentions of a beautiful starlet no matter how far she turns his head.

On screen, sparks fly between Amy and Charlie, as the pair struggle to act like people they're not. Off screen, they face the scuttling machinations of the other actors and Charlie realizes what Amy truly dreams of - love and security. He offers her both. But first, Amy must open her heart.
