7 days/7 reasons to buy it now!
Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Psst! Be sure to post to be eligible to win a prize. Later tonight, I’ll post another winner’s name! To double your chances, be sure to visit me at Romance Junkies blog today!! They should have the posting up shortly!

I get to do some blatant bragging now! So, don’t groan and roll your eyes—I earned it!!

If you’ve been following the blog postings since the start of the countdown, you know my very first review came from Fallen Angels and that they gave me 5 Angels and a Recommended Read rating. I had high hopes for more spectacular reviews, and yesterday, when I came home from my field trip, I found two more reviews waiting in my inbox. Take a peak!


From Emmy at Joyfully Reviewed: “…HOT! HOT! HOT! Down in Texas is three tales of hot cowboys and the women they tame. I found myself compelled to read the novel from beginning to end enjoying every moment and falling in love all over again with cowboys. Ms. Devlin’s descriptions drew me in immediately and did not let me go until I realized that Down in Texas was finished. All I wanted was more, so I read Down in Texas again, enjoying it for a second time. I am hoping that Ms. Devlin gives one of my favorite characters, Tara Toomey, her own story. Down in Texas is now a book in my permanent reread pile. As such, I Joyfully Recommend Down in Texas.”


Five Blue Ribbons from Chrissy Dionne at Romance Junkies (the review isn’t posted yet!): “…Brandon and Lyssa [from “Wearing His Brand”] have such remarkable chemistry that they practically ignite the pages. She’s a spirited determined female intent on getting and doing exactly what she wants. Brandon’s an equally strong character and knows exactly how to handle her ornery attitude…There’s something almost inspiring about this story [“Slow Ride”]. Maggie doesn’t view herself as desirable and has a difficult time believing that Daniel could truly want her. He’s capable, determined and absolutely loveable. I especially love his brand of ‘convincing.’…As a reader I couldn’t help but fall in love with Mac [from “Straight Up Soldier”]. He’s a delicious combination of soldier and cowboy that’s just a little too appealing. Suki’s a perfect match for him. She’s tenderhearted and still strong enough to take him at his surliest. I especially loved this story because of the way Mac’s vulnerability makes him endearing without making him overwhelming.

Delilah Devlin’s DOWN IN TEXAS is a fabulous anthology that kept my attention throughout each and every story. Each story flows easily into the next because the majority of the characters are present throughout each of them. The stories are all special in their own right but together they’re truly spectacular. The Tynan and McDonough families are honorable and strong families and reading about how they find and set about holding onto their significant other makes me just a little envious. Ms. Devlin has proved herself a capable storyteller before but with DOWN IN TEXAS she’s cemented a place on my ‘most watched authors’ list.


So, there you have it! And I didn’t have to tell you how much I think you’ll enjoy the stories. They did it for me!!
