What a thrill to be invited to talk about my latest mini-series for Harlequin Romantic Suspense, called Chance, Texas. The first two books in the series: TEXAS BABY SANCTUARY and TEXAS MANHUNT are both out now. This series takes me back to my roots in Texas after writing books set in many places around the world.
The romance of the great contemporary American West stirs a passion in my soul. Texas in particular is a favorite setting because my family and I lived there for nearly twenty years. Got to love those cowboys and ranchers too! Chance, Texas is about a large family of siblings who were orphaned young and now run a mega Texas ranching empire.
The first book, TEXAS BABY SANCTUARY, highlights hero Sam Chance, the oldest brother in the family. A strong, quiet man working for the United States Secret Service, Sam’s job is to guard witnesses in their protection and security program. The one witness that gets to him, running from his protection and changing his life, is Grace Brown. She hiding from the Mexican drug king, who kidnapped her, killed her parents and then made her his mistress. Grace wants to learn how to protect her baby son by herself. But she soon discovers she must also learn to trust Sam. Sam is forced to face his past when he takes her and the baby home to Texas in order to keep them safe.
The second book in the series, TEXAS MANHUNT, features Travis, the second eldest brother who stayed home and now runs the mega Bar-C ranch along with most of the town. But Travis Chance has a soft spot for lost souls. So when stranded and broke Summer Wheeler lands in Chance, it ignites in him a fierce desire to protect her. Clearly the fragile beauty is hiding something. But despite his disastrous romantic history, Travis knows in his gut he can trust her. Summer came to Chance looking for one of the men who devastated her life. Though she hates lying to him, Travis’s job offer provides a means to her end. But she never counted on falling for the sexy rancher and his troubled little girl. Then “accidents” start happening at the family homestead. Has Summer brought the danger to the two people who are teaching her to love again?
So how do you feel about cowboy and rancher heroes? Or would you rather read about sheiks or princes? Do you have any favorite western books? I'll giveaway one book from this series to one lucky commenter!
