LASSOING A GROOM

How is a woman supposed to catch a husband? In the wild, wild west, she’s got to find a way to Lasso a Groom! Some of them are lawmen…some are outlaws. Ranchers and homesteaders are fair game, as well—none of ’em safe from love’s lariat, or the women who finally manage to rope ’em in!

DON’T GO SNARING MY HEART by Jacquie Rogers  Can rancher Dex Madsen get past loner Betsy Lynch’s goats and killer chicken to help save her mining claim and win her heart?

RACE TO MARRY by Kirsten Lynn   He’s in town to tame a man-killer. She’s accused of being one. When she proposes marriage the race is on.

WANTED: THE SHERIFF by Tracy Garrett  He’s a confirmed bachelor…but she’ll capture his heart.

CANYON CROSSING by Kristy McCaffrey  In search of her brother, Annabel Cross enters Grand Canyon. When U.S. Deputy Marshal Angus Docherty rescues her from a cliff side, her most guarded secret might save them.

THE PERFECT HOMESTEAD BRIDE by Linda Hubalek   Will a dangerous man from Gussie Hamner’s past sabotage the future she’s building with Noah Wilerson?

THE WORST OUTLAW IN THE WEST by Kathleen Rice Adams  An inept bank robber and a bossy spinster team up to rob an empty vault. What could go wrong?

LASSOING A BRIDE

Some brides are hard to get a rope on, for sure! But in these wild west romance tales, being married is like sugar and lots of spice—with a dash of pepper in the mix! Ain’t nothin’ tame about these brides, who have a delicious story of their own—each falling under the spell of a handsome devil she thought was out of her reach. Unanswered prayers, broken dreams and unexpected circumstances are sometimes the best way for a groom to get the gal he loves when he’s looking at Lassoing a Bride!

PRETTIEST LITTLE HORSE THIEF by Gail L. Jenner  Sometimes it’s the stolen and unexpected love that has the power to heal a broken heart

UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS by Sarah J. McNeal  A broken dream…a cancelled wedding…and an unexpected blessing.

NO LESS THAN FOREVER by Tracy Garrett  Love always finds a way…

THE BANK ROBBER’S LAMENT by Sara Barnard  Smith found equal amounts of both anonymity and trouble in Gabriel’s Settlement. But when he sets eyes on a beautiful woman and her young daughter who are being abused, might some other emotion be fated to bloom in that desert town of far west Texas?

THE BRIDE AND THE BADGE by Livia J. Washburn   Was Emily just bait for an outlaw trap—or did she mean more than that to the handsome Texas Ranger?

I will be giving away one e-copy of LASSOING A GROOM and LASSOING A BRIDE! Be sure to leave your contact info in your comment so I can reach you if your name is drawn for one of these books!

NEW READING FOR CHRISTMAS! by CHERYL PIERSON

Cheryln100000149781632_8303In August, my good friend Livia W. Reasoner and I decided to open our own publishing house called  PRAIRIE ROSE PUBLICATIONS. We limited our submissions to women only, since it’s traditionally been so very hard for women to break into the western writing genre. We also included historical stories as well as western historical romance among our genres.RR Article Prairie_Rose_Pub_Logo_1_SM

 

 

 

 

 

It wasn’t long until we knew we were going to have to add a contemporary imprint, FIRE STAR PRESS.

As much as we’ve talked about getting younger people involved in reading historical stories, we decided to also include an imprint for Middle Grade Readers (9-12), Young Adults (13-17) and New Adults (18-24). PAINTED PONY BOOKS was born.

Not wanting to leave out contemporary reading for these ages, we also created TORNADO ALLEY PUBLICATIONS. These three imprints are open to anyone to submit to.

RR Article FSPLogoRR Article TAP LogoOur first anthology at Prairie Rose Publications, WISHING FOR A COWBOY, made its debut the last week in October, and just this past week had already climbed to #49 in Books > Romance > Westerns,  #8 in Books > Westerns and #9 in Kindle > Westerns. Our little anthology was in the TOP 10 in two categories!

 

 

 

But with the amazing talent of the authors, Phyliss Miranda, Tanya Hanson, Jacquie Rogers, Livia Reasoner, Tracy Garrett, Sarah McNeal, and Kathleen Rice Adams—how could it not? I’m very excited to have my story included in this anthology with all these wonderful authors.

RR ArticleWishing for a Cowboy WebTanya Hanson, a seasoned author, also made her inspirational debut with her first full length inspirational western historical romance novel through Prairie Rose Publications, and has a sequel on the way. Her book is called CLAIMING HIS HEART.Hanson_Claiming_His_Heart_Web (3)

Gail Jenner’s Willa Award winning novel, ACROSS THE SWEET GRASS HILLS, will be available shortly,  and Kristy McCaffrey has a brand new offering called INTO THE LAND OF SHADOWS.

We will also be releasing another anthology in time for Valentine’s Day, HEARTS AND SPURS, and in addition to the eight authors from WISHING FOR A COWBOY, it will also include  veteran romance novelist Linda Broday.

We’ve also got some great things planned for our other imprints! Livia and James Reasoner just released a wonderful story for PAINTED PONY BOOKS for our Middle Grade Reader list—THE PHANTOM RANGER AND THE SKATEBOARD GANG—an exciting adventure about a young girl who sees the ghost of her great-great-great grandfather who was a REAL Texas Ranger. This is an exciting read for boys and girls ages 9-12.

Also, from PAINTED PONY BOOKS, Sarah McNeal’s FLY AWAY HEART will be releasing in February, giving us more insight into the Wilding and Pierpont families she has created, with the story of Robin Pierpont and Lilith Wilding set in the early 1900’s. Her other books in this series may be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. 

Painted Pony Books Logo OWe’ve got many more projects in the works as well, and are just thrilled with the way our small publishing house is “coming together” with much hard work from Livia, me and our fantastic authors.  We’re very proud of our first three months!
