Hot Night at the Blue Bug Saloon-Nov. 28 Release

Hi Roses!
Well, it's official...I'll no longer be the red-headed step child but a REAL ROSE and I couldn't be MORE THRILLED. Over the months I've gotten to know so many of you and your collective support and encouragment is more than I could've hoped for in my dealings with The Wild Rose Press and her collective authors.

First of all...thanks for that. Finding a community of women who not only share common interests and goals is amazing in and of itself but the friendship is a heartwarming, thrilling bonus.

Hot Night at the Blue Bug Saloon, a mini Yellow Rose will be released on November 28 and I hope you all will help me as we kick off the first release of the Wayback Texas Series. Wayback is a small Texas town, like so many others, but this one is special because it will be created by WRP authors. What a fun concept!!! I'll tell you right now, this has been a blast! Not only the writing of this book, which we all know can be a lonely process, but the meeting of other authors, sharing ideas and building this exciting, friendly and loving town we call Wayback. Every year from March through November, friendly little Wayback hosts a weekend rodeo that brings in hot cowboys and cowgirls from all over the place and what a blast it is to see how they interact with the "locals". Love is a horseback ride away and is as exciting as an eight second ride on a crazy-wild bull.

Hot Night at the Blue Bug Saloon tells the story of sassy Gina Ballew. Her friends call her the Intimadator because, quite frankly, she's a whole lotta woman and the men in this tiny town find her just a tad...um...SCARY. Scares em straight out of their well-worn cowboy boots. But beneath Gina's lush exterior beats a heart of solid gold. Isn't there one tough cowboy with the courage to take her on?

Nash Logan has faced lots of challenges in his life. Eight seconds on a crazy mad bull? No problem. A wicked ride on a wild bronco? A snap. Nothing prepares him for the thrill ride that is sassy, sexy Gina Ballew. He knows it'll take an easy hand to tame this sweet Texas lady.
