Ante Up, Western Lovers!

I've known this for several weeks, but wanted it to be official before I posted it here. If you loved 1st place More Than Magic novella Blackest Heart, you'll be as happy as I am to know that the third story in my Wayback trilogy is contracted with The Wild Rose Press's Yellow Rose (contemporary western) line! The current working title is Bet It On My Heart. It will follow the launch of the 2nd book in the trilogy, Bluest Heart (January 6). Release date and cover are still forthcoming, but I can tell you a little bit about Bet It On My Heart. The trilogy is about the Ridge family, starting with Stella Ridge in Blackest Heart with brother Casey Ridge following in Bluest Heart and now - squeee! - eldest brother Keefe Ridge in Bet It On My Heart! Here's a little exclusive first-look at Bet It On My Heart:


Keefe Ridge's bronc-busting days are nearly over and he’s slowly making his dream business a reality. Even so, Wayback's wildest cowboy doesn't see any reason to settle down. He is willing to bet that marriage isn't in the cards for him—at all.

Talent agent Calli Morlani is in Wayback on a mission: to bring Stella Ridge back to Hollywood . Stella refuses, daring Calli to see what Wayback has to offer. Of course, the local color includes Stella's devastatingly charming brother and soon Calli finds herself in bed with him—in more ways than one.

Will it take a tough city girl to make the ultimate playboy fall long and hard? Or will Keefe give Calli a reason to stay? Place your bet!

For those who still don't have a copy of Blackest Heart, the ebook is available from The Wild Rose Press for $3.oo. You can also purchase it in paperback from The Wild Rose Press's new Print Store in The Way Back Home anthology. You can also find it at Amazon and B&!

Since the long-awaited Bluest Heart is launching in January, I'm honoring western romance all January long here at The Cozy Page with the Cowboy Lovin' Event. Every day there'll be something new: guest authors, eye candy, round robins, covers, excerpts, book trailers, and more - all cowboy-flavored! Everything you love about cowboy heroes in one hot party!

I am now booking guest authors for Cowboy Lovin'. This is first-come, first-serve and I am booking Wayback authors only first. If there are still spaces available, I will book Yellow Rose authors and others as well. If you are a Wayback author (published or contracted with the series) and you would like to be a part of Cowboy Lovin', please email me at
