It’s got Petticoat Ranch, Calico Canyon and Gingham Mountain all in one books.
Now, the main reason this is important is, these books are all out of print. But most especially Petticoat Ranch is not only out of print, it’s also GONE.
I don’t know why exactly, but it’s impossible to find. No bookstores, no Amazon, not even me personally. I’ve got ONE copy left and I’m clinging to it.
I don’t know if every single book they printed has sold or if there was an unfortunate warehouse fire, but either way, Petticoat Ranch does not exist.
You can buy it in hard cover, large print, but it’s pretty expensive. It’s available used on Amazon for (best price) $31.64. Which is kind of exciting, like they’re valuable or something. Of course I DON’T GET ANY OF THE MONEY, so I’m not that excited.
And THIS matters because the series I’m writing right now, Sophie’s Daughters, is the little girls in Petticoat Ranch all grown up.
Doctor in Petticoats released in July. Wrangler in Petticoats came out this month and Sharpshooter in Petticoats is coming in January. And though they stand alone pretty well, I think you’re going to want to see where the girls came from. Their tough Texas rancher mother who raised them to be the strong women they are today. A doctor, a wrangler and a sharpshooter.
So, I’m excited that Barbour Publishing is getting all these books back into print. Gingham Mountain and Calico Canyon come into play in Sharpshooter in Petticoats, too, so you need those, but those you can still find at least online. It’s that pesky Petticoat Ranch that’s vanished.
And my publisher put a really good price on Lassoed in Texas Trilogy. About the same price as one full priced book, although on Amazon they’re never full priced. Still, it’s a good deal even if you’ve got some of the others.
So today, to celebrate, I’m giving away one signed copy of Lassoed in Texas Trilogy. (I should be getting my author’s copies in the mail any day.
A little bit about the three books in Lassoed in Texas Trilogy:
Sophie Edwards is doing just fine, until a strange-yet oddly familiar-man rides into her life, insisting on rescuing her and her four daughters. Can she find a way to love a headstrong mountain man? When Clay McClellan discovers his brother has been murdered, he’s bent on finding the killers and seeing them properly hung. But first his Christian duty demands that he marry his sister-in-law. After all, Sophie needs someone to protect her – right? Faith and love help unruly wed newlyweds find common ground and a chance at love on the Texas frontier.
Let yourself be swept away by this fast-paced romance, featuring Grace Calhoun, an instructor of reading, writing, and arithmetic, who, in an attempt to escape the clutchs of a relentless pursuer, runs smack dab into even more trouble with the 6R’s – widower Daniel Reeves, along with his five rowdy sons. When a marriage is forced upon this hapless pair – two people who couldn’t dislike each other more – an avalanche isn’t the only potential danger lurking amid the shadows of Calico Canyon. Will they make it out alive? Or end up killing each other in the process?
All aboard for a delightful, suspense-filled romance, where a Texan is torn between his attraction to a meddlesome schoolmarm and the charms of a designing dressmaker. When Hannah Cartwright meets Grant, she’s determined to keep him from committing her orphans to hard labor on his ranch. How far will she go to ensure their welfare? Grant is determined to provide a home for the two kids brought in by the orphan train. Can he keep his ragtag family together while steering clear of love and marriage?
