A Labor of Love
The story's roots began at my local bookclub. I'd found a fabulous group of women (and one guy!) who met monthly and sometimes twice a month at our Barnes and Noble. They were the Books that Bite club because they loved paranormal romance. I'd released my first book in 2009, but I'm still an avid reader and I loved getting to hang out with these ladies, talk about whatever our book of the week was, and more.
A great many fantastic friendships were born out of this book club that I am blessed to still have today. Anyway, I digress--one evening, I went outside to have a smoke and I was talking to a couple of the readers. See, I really wanted a paranormal romance that didn't include modern technology. It seemed overkill to have superpowers and the Internet.
I also didn't want to have to create an alien world, so I said what if...what if the people with powers didn't live today but almost two hundred years ago? What if their fastest form of transportation was limited to trains which didn't reach everywhere? What if they were cowboys?
With a lot of encouragement from the people around me, I started working on my little novella...
That's No Novella
Eighty-two thousand words later, Fevered Hearts had been born. It wasn't a novella. It wasn't a standalone. And it wasn't a little undertaking, it was a labor of love. From Sam's book to Cody's to Micah, Buck, Kid, Jason, and Jimmy, I have adored these characters and the world which kept growing, evolving and turning upside down
Six years, seven full length books and one novella and next month I'll be releasing the last book in the series: A Man Called Wyatt. It's taken me three years to finally finish the last one, because I don't want to say goodbye to these characters. I don't want to let them go.
Return to the Beginning
It's okay, I can always flip right back to the first one and dive in. I still occasionally re-read them, and I return to Dorado, the Mountain, the Flying K, and the adventures of the Kanes and the Morning Stars.
In honor of our little anniversary, you can pick up Marshal of Hel Dorado for free right now from any retailer!
