If you’ve ever followed along and read the last book in a series, then you’ll know it’s bittersweet to say good-by to characters you love.
If you’ve ever written the last book in a series, then you’ll know that’s bittersweet, too.
Except saying good-by to characters you’ve had in your head for months, that you’ve developed, plotted over, stressed about, and fallen in love with, it’s WORSE!
So it is with MY KIND OF COWBOY, the last book in my Blackstone Ranch series with Tule Publishing. And as much as I hate to admit it, this book is my favorite, too, which makes saying good-by even harder.
Jace Paxton is the oldest brother of my three military-cowboy heroes. He is the one destined to run the prestigious Blackstone Ranch some day. He carries alot of responsibility on his broad shoulders. He knows the power of the legacy he must cherish and protect.
Shandi Flanagan is the opposite of the heroines in my first two books in the series. She’s not a big city girl, new to cowboys and Texas dust. No, Shandi has lived in Paxton Springs her entire life. She grew up with the Paxton brothers. Went to school with them. Had the same friends and went to a few of the same parties, too. She’s a cowgirl at heart, hard-working, sweet as pie, and everyone who knows her loves her.
Jace Paxton is all but clueless to her existence. Except when it comes to being served his favorite brand of cold beer and a hot-off-the-grill burger and fries. He knows she’s a good person. She’s just not on his radar.
That changes, of course, when he rescues her on one of the worst nights of her life.
He begins to see she’s more than an efficient, beloved, and devoted waitress at the town’s most popular watering hole, the Greasy Bull. He learns that working two jobs day in and day out so she can achieve her dream is the kind of person she is.
She opens his eyes, all right. His heart, too. But there’s a huge obstacle between them, a dream they both share, and no matter who overcomes, the other will be hurt.
MY KIND OF COWBOY will be released Tuesday, March 16th. I hope you read Jace and Shandi’s story to find out more about that dream and which of them achieves it.

Shandi has been a waitress at the Greasy Bull since she was old enough to get a job there. She’s darn good at it, too. She could run the place blind-folded, in fact.

Loved it? Hated it?
