Outlaws, cowgirls, pioneers—these are the subjects of Suzanne Lyon’s historical western novels. Whether on the trail of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or in the arena with legendary female rodeo stars from the Roaring 20’s, Lyon’s readers are guaranteed a rip-roaring good time!

ANNOUNCING the latest Suzanne Lyon historical novel... A HEART FOR ANY FATE.


In 1790, on the banks of the New River in southwestern Virginia, Hannah Allison and William Temple Cole join together in marriage.  In search of more fertile land, the young couple follows in Daniel Boone's footsteps across the Cumberland Gap to Kentucky, and on to the untamed frontier of Louisiana Territory.  Yet Hannah's dream to settle in the beautiful Boonslick area of Missouri falters in the face of marauding Indians, political maneuvering, natural disasters, and emotional turmoil.

Against the backdrop of war, a nation pushing west, and forbidden love, Hannah Cole must decide if she has...A HEART FOR ANY FATE.

Based on the true story of Suzanne Lyon's great-great-great-great grandmother, A HEART FOR ANY FATE "evokes with gripping realism time, place, and pioneer hearts." Jeanne Williams, award-winning author and former president of Western Writers of America

"Suzanne Lyon has brought Hannah Cole to life like no history book ever could.  I couldn't stop turning pages!"  Pat Painter Todd, president of the Cole Family Association
