There’s nothing like the launch of a new series!
Now that I have a son going to school in Texas (hook ‘em, Longhorns!), it was time to set some books there. Texas, cowboys, cattle ranches, right?
Well, not completely. Texas and cowboys, but you know me—I have to do things just a bit differently. I went for a bison ranch. And no, it wasn’t just because you can make spectacular yarn from bison hair—although that was a large part of it. One has to do one’s extensive research yes?
When the friendly folks at Lucky B Bison Ranch welcomed me with open arms, I knew I had a great setting from which to launch the fictitious Blue Thorn Ranch that would host my next five books. Here’s another glimpse at one of my favorite videos: me getting up close and personal with the bison.
Starting with February’s The Texas Rancher’s Return, you’ll get to meet matriarch Adele Buckton and her five strong willed grandchildren as each of them returns to the family ranch. First up is Gunner, Jr, who is determined to live down his black sheep reputation and save the family land by creating a thriving bison ranch. Beautiful single mom Brooke Calder needs the cooperation of the Buckton family to save her job, but she’ll lose her heart to Gunner before the adventure is over. Throw in Brooke’s adorable daughter, one bull-headed mama bison, and a thorny misunderstanding, and you have what’s become one of my favorite books I’ve ever written.
I hope you’ll enjoy all the books in the Blue Thorn Ranch series as they arrive.
