I really enjoy writing series. My most recent one is the Texas True series. It’s a six book series set in the town of Whiskey River, Texas. I’ve written several books and series set in Whiskey River and it’s such a fun place to write about.
Texas True follows the stories of the six Walker siblings. Four guys and two women. Four of them either live and work on the ranch, some with horses and one as an artist who has his own cottage. The youngest and the oldest are outliers, who left town to follow their career paths and recently returned.
The series begins with Texas Forged. Gabe Walker’s story. He’s the metal artist who has been in several of my earlier books set in the town. Gabe appears in the Devil’s Rock at Whiskey River series in all three books. Gabe is a metal artist, and I confess, I absolutely adore this guy. I mean, just look at his picture on the cover! Now there’s a cover that captures my idea of Gabe perfectly. Chantel Chandler is the girl he has had a thing for since high school. When they get together their story is hot as fire—pun intended.:)
Next came Truly, Madly Texas. Chase Walker, two time saddle bronc World Champion, is home on the ranch, sidelined with an injury. He meets a gorgeous, mysterious woman who he spends an unforgettable night with. He’s sure it’s a one-night stand…Until Ella Slade—none other than his mysterious lady—shows up to interview for the ranch manager job. It’s really hard for them to be all business, especially when neither can forget their night together.
And then there’s Texas Made, Marshall Walker and Jaclyn Carson’s story. He’s country, she’s city and no matter how much they want each other, they know it won’t work long term. Marshall’s work is on the ranch, raising his paint horses while Jaclyn owns and runs a well-known makeup company in Dallas. Long distance relationships are hard, especially when neither can give up their career to be with the other.
As you probably know if you’ve read my books, I really like men. Especially great looking hot guys like the Walker men. But there are also two sisters in the family. Texas Cowgirl is Damaris Walker’s story. She was fun to write. She’s been in all three of the earlier books. Nate Kershaw, the guy she’s kept firmly in the friend zone, finally figures out a way for Damaris to see what’s been right in front of her. That they’re perfect for each other. Nate is a pilot who has also been in some earlier stories. What a sweetheart he is! A guy who will go all out to make his grandma’s dream come true. Of course, it helps that it’s his dream as well.
Then there’s Hot Texas Trouble. Jedidiah Walker, the baby of the family, who happens to be an undercover agent who comes home to Whiskey River after losing her fiancé in her last undercover case. Neither she, nor her boss, Trevor Holt, plan on getting together but the attraction is soon too much for them to resist. But Trevor, an app designer, has other interests, and Jedidiah finds that they can be a bit more dangerous than she wants. She’s had enough danger to last a lifetime. Can Trevor convince her that Bikers for Kids is a worthwhile organization, even if sometimes a little danger is involved?
Finally, Cole Walker, the eldest of the brothers and sisters, gets his story in my latest book, the Texas Christmas Baby Bargain. Imagine his surprise when he finds Micki Kennedy, the woman who broke his heart years ago, is now living in Whiskey River. Micki wants a baby, but not a baby daddy. She thinks Cole is the perfect guy to ask to be her donor. But Cole is ready to settle down, and he vetoes Micki’s plan to have him father a child and walk away. However, he’ll be happy to get her pregnant the old fashioned way. As for walking away from his own child—No way, no how!
I hope you enjoy the Walker family’s stories. I sure loved writing them!
