Meet Anne, a strong woman who can overcome anything.
Thank you Anne for joining me today. Let’s get started on your story.
What is your biggest regret?
I’d like to say marrying Gavin MacKay, but taking that back would leave me without my best friend, my child, and my new home. Wrong choices sometimes lead to what makes us happiest. Perhaps it’s fate’s way of having mercy on us poor humans.
You are overcoming a lot of obstacles for a lady of your day. What was your biggest challenge?
The feeling of powerlessness. Society and its laws refused me a divorce, so it was either stay or escape. I chose the latter, but unlike most women of my time, I was lucky enough to have funds to help me flee England.
You started a new life out west, what was the most unexpected complication?
The initial obstacle was hiding my pregnancy from Connagher and the men for as long as possible. I knew if they found out before arriving in Montana Territory that they would send me back east – to civilization where doctors could care for me.
What do you miss about the life you left behind and what do you love most about the life you are now living?
During the freezing winter months, I most missed the new-fangled indoor plumbing, and the luxury of not needing to use a chamber pot or outhouse. Loneliness settled in during the long months as well, and I did miss having people to help escape my boredom.
Means of Mercy #2
Sweet, Historical Romance
Release Date: January 26, 2015
Embittered by betrayal, Anne MacKay flees London for America, where she learns she’s pregnant with her abusive husband’s longed-for heir. In a society that doesn’t protect, or afford a well-to-do wife’s desire for divorce, Anne decides there is one way to exact revenge: deny the father any knowledge of his child.
Sought after by her husband’s henchmen, Anne travels by rail and horseback, far from civilization where silk and stays are worn, let alone thought of. Lies and deceit protect her identity for a time, allowing her to birth—and grow to love—the child who was supposed to be her vengeance.
With the help of her loyal and protective business partner, Jude Connagher, and the ranch hands in their Montana Territory valley, Anne attempts to rebuild her life under the shadow of her husband’s wrath.
One unwise decision lands Anne in her pursuers’ clutches, tearing her from the ranch, her child, and her growing love for the one man who could redeem her from bitterness. She’s left with no choice but to finally face her husband, knowing her freedom and life hang in the balance.

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.
Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
