Meet Author Rhonda Frankhouser!

I'm excited to be hosted by fellow SoulMate author, Madelyn Hill. I appreciate her eagerness to share other authors and their work with her readership. My debut novel, Return to Ruby's Ranch, which was released on Amazon from SoulMate Publishing on November 16, 2016, is book one of a contemporary western romance series that tells the story of the strong line of matriarchs of Ruby's Ranch. I'm currently working on book two in the series - Escape from Ruby's Ranch. I recently signed a new contract with SoulMatePublishing for a contemporary romance called Health Nut Café, which is due out in 2017. This is the booklove of my life - so far :) Neither book are the norm for romance - rather they have lots of twists and turns, murder and mayhem, but alas, the love stories are rich and real. Thanks so much for hosting me. Please visit my website at and leave me a note. I would love to hear from you.


Blurb -
Ruby Lattrell spends her days caring for her ailing father and younger brother. When they no longer need her, her life lacks purpose. Then she inherits Ruby’s Ranch – the only real home she ever knew – the place where her mother mysteriously vanished. The smell of fresh cut hay and the most handsome cowboy she’s ever seen, Billy McCallister, greet Ruby when she arrives at the ranch.
Billy always dreamed Ruby would return home. When he finally sees her standing on Granny’s porch, now a mix of that sassy young girl he once knew and the reassured, sensual woman she is today, he knows his heart hasn’t misled him. Before she can fall into the timeless love that Billy offers, they must solve the mysteries that haunt Ruby’s Ranch. Will digging up the past hurt more people than it helps? Will the truth they discover tear Ruby and Billy apart?

Bio -
Rhonda discovered she had a knack for storytelling after she was diagnosed with cancer at a young age. To avoid dwelling on her own mortality, she sat down with pen and paper and got out of the way of her subconscious mind. Words and characters poured out of her from some hidden place inside her soul. She discovered that writing was not only cathartic and healing but a necessary function for her future sanity.

Her first novel, MY LAST DAY, gained the representation of agent Ben Camardi, at Harold Matson Company in New York. This is a heart wrenching tale of a young woman seeking love and closure on her last day of life. Her second and third novels, SHADOWING SOULS and RUBY’S RANCH, were quick to follow. Each story has a contemporary romantic flavor, a solid family dynamic and a paranormal twist. RUBY’S RANCH will soon be available from, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Rhonda lives in central California with her Kisa, (Knight in Shining Armor), their beautiful and talented daughters, and two mischievous pug puppies, Geddy and Ruby. When she is not writing, she is supporting hospice patients as a volunteer coordinator, playing golf with her husband, or reading the latest masterpiece from one of her favorite authors. She is a member of the RWA – PAN community and the local chapter, Yosemite Romance Writers.
