It’s FINALLY here! Today is the official release of TEXAS MAIL ORDER BRIDE and I’m giving away 4 copies–winners’ choice of either print or e-book!
When dark-haired, gray-eyed Cooper Thorne sauntered onto the page with his swagger and dogged determination, I knew he was a special kind of hero. He was rough around the edges and filled with a gritty hardness that came from watching his father beat his mother to death when he was seven years old. He would require a very special woman with a lot of heart who could give as good as she got. Someone who challenged him at every turn.
Enter Delta Dandridge who learned the hard way that no one was going to look out for her. She was on her own. One feisty and tough lady! When she dug in her heels, you’d better watch out. I knew she would be a perfect match for Cooper.
Sparks fly from the moment they meet. He’s furious that she would think he sent for her. If he can find the person who played the joke, he’ll wring his neck. He’s a bachelor and will die a bachelor and that’s the way it is. Then for her to refuse to go back where she came…well, let’s say it makes Cooper mad enough to spit. Delta reminds him of everything he’s trying to forget.
The depth of Cooper’s loyalty and caring for the people in his life goes bone-deep. When a man suddenly shows up that he thought he killed, Cooper becomes a fearless fighter. He will protect those he loves to the bitter end. The stripes on his back prove that he may bend, but he will never break.
Magic happened in a big way. Maybe a lot had to do with the fact that Cooper had such a larger-than-life persona. Or maybe it was Delta’s fierce need to matter to someone and be accepted. When she saw the dying town and people of Battle Creek, Texas, she knew they needed her as much as she desperately needed them.
So when Cooper throws down the gauntlet by saying that he isn’t in a market for a wife and never will be, she simply has to make him eat his words.
Or die trying.
Whatever the magic ingredient was, the story all came together in a fantastic fashion and I’m very proud of it. It’s a story of love and hope and finding a way to trust again.
TEXAS MAIL ORDER BRIDE is the first book of my Bachelors of Battle Creek series. I hope you enjoy it and look for book two, TWICE A TEXAS BRIDE, in May 2015.
Have you ever captured the magic that sometimes happens when everything comes together be it in life, love or the pursuit of happiness?
