Welcome to my site!



I’m also working on some other books and starting to write holiday books. I love this time of year. I’m in MS and it is hotter than blue blazes. They call it the devil’s playground. The heat and humidity are miserable, to say the least, so I can’t wait for fall temps to get here. Today it’s going to be a sweltering 107 degrees! Wherever you are at, I hope your weather is better! Thanks for stopping by.

Love you all.



I appreciate you all so very much. May God bless you and your families.  Love you all and thank you so much for your kindness and reading my books.

Please note: Some of my earlier books include murder and mayhem, cursing, and open door love scenes. Then God called me to write the wholesome faithful stories and that is all I write now. A reviewer recently said that one of those books was so unlike me and she was right. I do not write those anymore, but they are published.

Love you all and thank you for reading my books. I appreciate it very much. I keep all my readers in my prayers. You mean the world to me.

  1. Hi Willie,
    Thanks for asking. I am presently working on Breed’s Mail Order Bride and hoping to have it finished by middle of September or sooner.

    Thank you for your interest and for stopping by my site.

    Blessings to you.


  2. I love your stories, they’re long enough to take me away to someplace else, but short enough to keep me here and I love the way that dreams come true in them. Thank you for sharing your talent for telling great stories to people who’s only talent is reading.

  3. Hi Nancy,

    Thank you so much for letting me know you like them.

    I always believe that readers have a fabulous imagination or they wouldn’t read.

    Blessings to you and thanks for stopping by.

  4. Do you have a listing of books that you’ve written? I just bought six and I want to make sure I get them all!

  5. Thank you so much, Nancy. All my books can be found on Amazon. Just type in Cia Leah and go to my author page there.

    Thank you for stopping by and may you be blessed.

  6. Hi Angie,

    Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know you liked those stories. That is so nice to hear.

    Kato’s story will be out around Christmas and if I get it done sooner, I will post here on the upcoming book page.

    Thank you and blessings to you and yours,


  7. I am impatiently waiting for Breed/Dan and Sunnie’s story. How do I go about getting emails when your new books are available in eBook format? I am so pleased that your stories are just the right length and so well written. Thank you.

  8. Hi Ann,

    Breed/Dan’s story will be sometime towards the end next year or sooner if I can get to it. I haven’t even started on it yet and have one I am working on now for Thanksgiving and have Kato’s story to write before Christmas and hopefully a couple more short stories for the holidays.

    I will update info for my stories on the upcoming books info page here on my site and Amazon has a link under my author page there to send emails when there are new releases on my books.

    Thank you so much for the nice compliments on my stories and the length. That is always nice for a writer to hear. Thanks for stopping by.

    Blessings to you and yours,


  9. Hi RaNae!

    I am hoping to have Kato’s story out around Christmas, barring any unforeseen events in real life. I’m writing it now.

    Thanks for your interest and for stopping by my site. You can find updated info on the Upcoming Books Info page here on my site, and I will let readers know when it is finished and up.

    Blessings to you and yours and thanks,


  10. I just finished reading “Roping Her Texan” and absolutely loved it. Will there be a sequel to this book? It seems as if a number of characters went missing at the end of the book. I sure hope there is. Would love to know what happened to Dan and Sunnie.

  11. Hi Joan!

    So happy you liked Roping Her Texan! Writers always love hearing that and it means a lot. At some point in time, I will write Sunnie and Dan’s story and will post here when I start it and finish it. I took some time off during the holidays to spend with my family.

    I hope you have a fabulous new year! Thanks so much for stopping by my site and letting me know you enjoyed RHT.

    Blessings to you and yours,


  12. L loved reading your books about Caleb and Breed. I finished Kato’s story with Cassie this morning and started reading about Colt and Kallie and enjoyed their story. I liked the mention about Dan and Sunnie and hope there’s a book on their story. I was a little let down that there was no mention about them at the end of Colt’s and Kallie’s book.

    Is there a book on Dan’s and Sunnie’s story? If not, are you writing one? Or, will a book be released soon re their story?

    I felt letdown at the end of Colt’s and Kallie’s book with no mention about Dan and Sunnie.

    I do enjoy reading your books.

    1. Hi Lorna!

      I answered on your other post too. I am thinking that Sunnie and Dan’s story will be a Christmas release. So happy you liked the stories. That means a lot to me.

      Thank you for stopping by and for reading my books.

      Blessings to you and yours,


  13. So sorry to hear about your son and your dear husband. God bless. We will all be hear when you return. Love you.

    1. Thank you so much, Cindy. I appreciate your kindness very much. I’m trying to come back.

      Love you too and wishing you and your loved ones a blessed holiday season.

  14. Haven’t seen anything by you since February 2016. I pray all is well with you. I am so sorry for the terrible losses you have endured. I hope time has helped heal, although it cannot erase the pain. Thinking of you, worrying for you, and praying blessings upon you.

    1. Thank you so much. It still seems like yesterday, but I am trying to come back. Grey’s Thanksgiving Bride just went live on Amazon. It’s late, but got the first book I have written since the deaths of my husband and son done.

      Thank you for your kindness and for the prayers and worrying. Your heartfelt words mean a lot to me.

      God bless you and I pray you and your family have a blessed holiday season.

  15. Hello Cia, I trust all is with you and your family. The lost of love ones can be hard. But we will always have memories. May God continue to bless you and your family.
    I look forward to reading more of your wonderful books. I strive to make every day a great day which include reading enjoyable books such as yours. Thank you for sharing your talent.

    1. Thank you, Cynthia. I appreciate your kindness very much. It means a lot to me. May God bless you and your family this holiday season and throughout the new year.

  16. I enjoy your historical books.
    I’ve missed you. I hope each day becomes easier for you.
    I reread your books. I feel the love of your writing come to life through your characters

    1. Hello Orinda! Thanks for stopping by my site and posting that you enjoy my books. That always makes an author smile. 🙂

      I don’t think my broken heart will ever heal, but I’m taking each day at a time. I am writing a little more and have a couple new ones up. Hopefully more coming soon.

      Again, thank you so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to come here and let me know you like my books.

      May God bless you and yours.

      Thank you,


  17. Hi Ms. Leah, I would like to know. When are you going to write more books on Outlaw Mail Order Husband Series. Thanks

    1. Hi Sharon!
      I’m just getting back to writing and finishing up one I had started and then I will be working on the Outlaw Series. I’ve jotted down some notes and refreshing my memory to write the second in the series.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and asking. I really appreciate that.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones,

      Cia PS: Just call me Cia. I’m just a plain person and think of my readers as friends.

      Thank you so much.

      1. Hi Sharon,

        The second book is up in case you didn’t see it. Title is WANTED: OUTLAW MAIL ORDER WIFE; BY PROXY.

        Blessings to you and yours,


        1. Hi Cia,
          I’ve read all the books in the series of Wanted: Outlaw Mail Order Husband, Wife of Proxy, and Family. I loved each book in the series. Thank you so much for taking the time to write the books for your fans.Thanks a million times over.

  18. I have enjoyed reading the two outlaw Mail order bride and groom series. But I was left wondering about the next one. T. Didn’t look good for Heath and Sid and their family. Do you have an idea when we can expect the next one.

    1. Hi Estelle!

      Thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed the first two books in the series. Writers always like to hear that and your kind words mean a lot to me.

      I’m not too sure yet as I have two books I am working on at the moment, but after I get those done, I will be working on the last book in the Wanted series. Hopefully it doesn’t take long to finish these up. I will post on my site here when it is up.

      Thank you again for taking the time to stop by my site and let me know you enjoyed them. Blessings to you and your family.


  19. I stumbled on your books by accident but love them very much. I know about loss and it’s hard to know I will never see my mom or my sister or brother on this Earth again. Time helps but it still hurts. I can’t even imagine the pain of losing 1 of my 3 children or 1 of my 5 grandchildren. I pray you find peace and joy in your memories of your husband and son. I love all your books.

    1. Hi Tammie,

      I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom and sister and brother. My heart goes out to you and will keep you in my prayers and thoughts. To lose all three is a heartache that can’t heal.

      Thank you for your kind words and I appreciate it so much. You brought tears to my eyes. I’m still grieving and it is still affecting my writing. I am not as prolific as I used to be and don’t know if my broken heart will ever heal. I keep praying and ask the Lord to help me get through each day. Without my faith in God, and the kindness of my readers, I wouldn’t have made it the past two years.

      Thank you so much for letting me know you love my books. It means so much to me, as it does all writers, to know that readers love their books.

      God bless you and your family and thank you,


  20. Hi Cia,
    I wanted you to know that I love your books so much. I’ve read most of them and when I want to read before bed, your books are the ones I go to. I’ve read them many times. It doesn’t get any better than that. I’m sorry for all you have lost and trust that your faith keeps you going. I will be praying for you. Meanwhile, thank you so much for the many hours of pleasure I get reading your books. God Bless You, Georgianna

    1. Hi Georgianna,

      Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know you enjoy my books. All writers love to hear that. My readers and my faith is what has kept me going. I appreciate each and every one of you and the kindness you show me. It means the world to me.

      Again, thank you so much for your kindness and your prayers. I always keep my readers in my prayers. God knows who you are and I thank God for giving me the talent to write.

      God bless you and your family.


  21. Hello CIA

    I just finished “The Sun-Kissed Mail Order Bride”! I enjoyed it from start to finish. Is there a second book to follow? Please say YES. I pray God’s continued blessings upon your health and writing.

    1. Hi Jean Williams!

      I’m not sure there will be, but I don’t rule anything out. I’ll go back over the story since I can’t remember them all. Whose story would you like to see continued in that book?

      Thank you so much for stopping by and telling me you enjoyed the book. All authors love hearing that. Thank you for your prayers. They mean the world to me and I keep all my readers in my prayers.

      May God bless you and your family. Thank you so very much!
