A cowboy, a mail-order bride, and a marriage of convenience?
Those are the ingredients for a fun and sizzling romance! And A Cowboy for Keeps is just that! It’s the first book in my newest series, Colorado Cowboys, and is now available!
No, I’m not switching genres and writing westerns! This new series is another historical romance with my trademark plot twists, vibrant settings, and deeply emotional characters. But this time the package includes hunky cowboys!
For as much as the story delivers a satisfying and entertaining romance, the book is much more than that. It’s also a journey into the McQuaid family saga. After losing both of their parents and their family farm, four brothers and a sister move to Colorado Territory and the Wild West to begin a new chapter of their lives. The series explores what it really means to be a family, to look out for each other, remain loyal, learn to forgive, and stand together against adversity.
A Cowboy for Keeps starts with Wyatt McQuaid the oldest of the brothers. Wyatt is attempting to make a go of homesteading and ranching in Colorado’s high country in South Park. But with all the obstacles he faces, he’s having a hard time making a new home. When Fairplay’s mayor offers him a deal, one that involves taking a bride in exchange for cattle, Wyatt can’t resist.
Already readers are falling in love with Wyatt and the rest of the cast of endearing characters. Here’s what a couple of readers had to say in early reviews:
“The characters are well drawn, there are plot twists to keep you on the edge of your seat, and plenty of swoon-worthy kisses. I really enjoyed reading the book, and look forward to the next in the series!”
“This book truly has it all: historical fiction, romance, suspense, a wonderful character cast, and an enthralling narrative that was addictive and entertaining until the end.”
