Definitely not Gunsmoke… (Contest)
Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

I have a book to finish slamming today. And I can’t wait to type THE END so I can give my poor hands a rest. I’ve written so many words these past few days that my stumpy little digits ache.

Since I don’t want to spend my fingers on a blog, I’ll get right to the point. I have a book coming on February 10th that’s up for pre-order now! It’s a historical western set in Two Mule, Texas—and yes, to those of you who pay attention, it’s a prequel book to the Lone Stare Lovers series. I love this story. It has tons of humor and sweaty sex. And isn’t this the prettiest cover ever?

Sweeter Than Honey

Something’s on the rise in Two Mule, Texas. And it ain’t just the temperature.

1880, West Texas

Honey Cafferty lives a happy, if precarious, existence as a traveling saleswoman. She sells her elixirs and potions while searching for the one thing she hasn’t been able to brew from the back of her colorful wagon—a sense of belonging. She arrives in Two Mule, Texas, with her Elixir of Love, a potion that improves a man’s libido but might just get her run out of town.

Sheriff Joe Tanner is protective of his little town. Downright hostile toward anyone who might take advantage of the fine folk under his protection. Any snake-oil salesman who rolls into town better just keep right on rolling.

Honey isn’t what Joe expected, from her vibrant red hair and cat-green eyes to her curvy mouth and hips. And when the men of the town begin to plead exhaustion—and place the blame squarely on her sweet-smelling shoulders—Joe has no choice but to launch an investigation. A very, very deep investigation…

Warning: Contains a sheriff who prides himself on keeping his town running as smooth as a well-greased wagon wheel, and a wandering saleswoman who’s more than a bump (and grind) in his road.

Pre-order at Samhain

And what’s with the title of this blog? Just havin’ some fun. And if you say you don’t know what Gunsmoke is/was, well that’s just sad. 🙂 Miss Kitty, Marshall Dillon, Festus… If you were like me, you were always waiting for Miss Kitty and Matt to get it on…

    Gunsmoke reminds me of my Grandpa. He watched it every week and when we visited with him we watched it with him. Wrestling and Gunsmoke were his favorite things on television. I think his head would explode if he could see all the channels and shows on TV now.

    Looking forward to this one.

    My dad loved Gunsmoke and Maverick. I remember Gunsmoke so well because I always felt sorry for Miss Kitty. She waited and waited, and I used to tell her to just go find herself a young cowboy who’d treat her right. 🙂

    I love the old westerns. My Mom was enamored with Maverick, so of course so was I. 🙂 James Garner was SO handsome.

    Gunsmoke was a family show and we watched it ever week. I think it was on Sunday nights. There were so many Westerns back in the 60’s. Maybe that’s why I gravitate to westerns…my sub conscience is remembering my youth. 😆

    I remember watching Gunsmoke as a kid. I bet Joe won’t waste as much time getting his hands on Honey as the Marshal did with Miss Kitty. 😉

    Gunsmoke, Maverick, The Lone Ranger, The Rifleman, Sugarfoot, Sky King, Cheyenne – I could go on and on but I’m sure I’m already showing my age. LOL I loved westerns as a kid both on TV and in print. I remember a book series called Timber Trail Riders that I couldn’t get enough of. Of course, adult romantic/erotic westerns are much better. LOL I look forward to reading Sweeter Than Honey.

    Gunsmoke was my sister’s favorite. I was a Lone Ranger fan. 😉
