Texas Made by Eve Gaddy (Texas Born)

Release Date: July 1, 2021

Texas True, Book 1

When pure country meets pure city…

Rancher Marshall Walker isn’t looking for a woman—not permanently, anyway. He’s plenty busy raising beautiful Walker paint horses that are in high demand across Texas. But when his sister’s gorgeous friend arrives for an extended visit, he’s not opposed to exploring what could happen. He knows his heart is safe—Jaclyn Carson is a city girl, and he’s country through and through.

Jaclyn isn’t looking for a man, either. Owner and CEO of her own makeup company, she doesn’t have any desire to relax or slow down. With her condo under extensive renovations, she takes up her friend’s offer to stay at her family’s Texas ranch. Jaclyn’s more than a little curious to catch a glimpse of her not-so-secret college crush, and Marshall is hotter than ever. And his proposition—a steamy but very temporary affair—sounds like a fantasy come true.

What happens when two opposites fall in love? Can they meet in the middle or will they go their separate ways, even if it means breaking their hearts?


Leashed by Katja Desjarlais (Muse)

Release Date: July 13, 2021

Hellhounds, Book 2

A good dog heels when Fate calls. Others take their chance in hell.

On earth, Hellhound Bo Echidna chases his vices and embraces his bad luck, hoping to ease the monotony of his immortal existence while he waits for his master’s call. Bound to the will of Hades and touched by the hand of Dionysus, he drifts from bar to bar and bed to bed on the hunt for his next rush, knowing it will never ease his eternal torment.

Librarian and art history student Sage Marcellus‘s only vice is the caffeine that fuels her revolving schedule of two jobs, school, and her passive position as Nixon’s Girlfriend. Accommodating and quiet, she lives in the periphery of her own life until she meets Bo, whose unexpected friendship leads Sage to ponder her life choices.

While Bo and Sage grapple with their growing attraction, ancient forces and grudges work against them to ensure that Bo never gets his happily ever after. And when Sage is in peril, Bo must play a rigged game against Fate to save them both.

The Hartman Brothers, Book 1

What else can go wrong? Or is everything finally going right?

After catching her fiancé lip-locked with the wedding planner an hour before their vows, Hailey Miller hikes up her wedding dress and runs. The last person she expects to chase her down is her ex’s sexy but aloof business partner who’s kept her at arm’s length for years. He offers her a lifeline, but his help comes with a catch. Does she dare say yes?

Jace Hartman doesn’t believe in love. And he doesn’t believe in giving up. He won’t let his company’s event planner walk away from their biggest launch—even if she has a broken heart. Business comes first, so he makes Hailey an offer she can’t refuse. But it’s her counter offer that has him worried. She needs a place to live for the month, and he has an extra bedroom.

Jace has spent the past few years trying his best to bury his attraction to Hailey. Now she’s everywhere and making him forget all the reasons he should never mix business and pleasure.

Welcome to Bunya Junction, Book 1

Coming home isn’t always easy…

Three years ago, nurse Sindy Carruthers returned to Bunya Junction wounded, wary and shamed by a relationship gone wrong. Welcomed home by her family and supportive community, she now manages the local medical practice and enjoys her newfound confidence. She’s perfectly happy on her own, until a blast from the past in the form of Ryan Flanagan appears.

Dr. Ryan Flanagan—renowned plastic surgeon to the stars—heads to Bunya Junction to pay his last respects to the man who opened his heart and house to an abandoned boy. Ryan’s no fan of Bunya Junction or the harsh judgments of some of the townsfolk, so he’s stunned to discover that his old mentor has bequeathed him half a general medical practice—hoping he’ll stay on and serve the community. The other half of the practice now belongs to the beautiful Sindy Carruthers, his closest friend’s twin sister.

Sindy knows Ryan will never stay in Bunya Junction and become her business partner, and that’s a good thing. Otherwise she might just lose her heart to him.

After two of his buddies found love through the military’s matchmaking program, Lucas Craiger decides to give it a shot.

When he’s assigned to his high school sweetheart who shattered his heart, his plan for an uncomplicated relationship becomes acutely complicated.

Riley Thompson signed up for the matchmaking program because she needs a fresh start—and the health insurance. She desperately wants to build a life with a man where her autoimmune disease doesn’t define her and she can prove herself. But being matched with Lucas isn’t the new beginning she wanted. He’s the love of her life she let go when she was first diagnosed.

He can’t resist a puzzle…

When Texas Ranger Brice McAllister spies a sexy woman in short shorts gardening in her backyard, he can’t help but flirt. She shuts him down hard, and Brice is astonished when he realizes this alluring woman is also the aloof and dowdy librarian—complete with thick-framed glasses and a shapeless dress—who helped him research land deeds earlier that day. He’s instantly intrigued and sets out to discover more—namely, why she’s clearly hiding herself.

She can’t attract attention…

After one side of her crime family is involved in her fiancé’s death, Maria Giordano puts half a continent between herself and her L.A. home and family. She moves to Whiskey River and reinvents herself as “Mary,” a serious and plain librarian. Her only indulgence is her garden and cooking with her neighbor’s young daughter. And then she meets Brice.

On a storm-ravaged night, Texas rancher Truitt Tremayne is trying to make it home before the road floods.

Truitt knows Annie has a secret. He wants her trust, but can he give his heart to another woman after he’s already lost so much?

Tule Author Q&A: C.R. Grissom talks body image and burritos

New Tule author C.R. Grissom stopped by to talk all about her debut new adult romance, Mouthful!

 

 

Welcome to Tule! What is one thing you can tell our readers that no one else knows about you?

I switched to digital format reading because of an injury. I’d been revisiting the Outlander series for the umpteenth read. By the time I reached the end of book six, I’d sprained the pinky finger of my right hand because the weight of those hardback tomes became too much. I didn’t want to stop reading, so I bought the series in digital format. Problem solved! Now I can’t imagine leaving the house without my entire bookshelf in my back pocket. But it all started with a book nerd injury.

 

Tacos With LimeWhat was your favorite scene to write and why?

I had such fun writing Caleb and Faith’s first date at Iguana’s. She felt unsure, but she still walked through the door. She’s nervous, waiting for Caleb to return with their food and then Everest sits down. He’s chock-full of confidence, charm, and loaded with audacity. There’s an instant sense of friendship that springs from their first conversation. Once Everest leaves, Caleb and Faith start to recognize the chemistry arcing between them while sharing a five-pound burritozilla.

 

Mouthful touches on teen and young adult body image issues in such a real and poignant way. What inspired you to write about this topic?

Young women are inundated by fashion magazines promoting a certain body type. As a result, far too many of us aren’t happy in our skin. Myself included. A conversation with my niece about my harsh inner critic had a profound impact on me and sparked the idea for a book about a girl struggling with negative body image. Faith is a compilation of all women who face the daily battle against perceived imperfections and her character arc reflects her journey towards body acceptance.

 

What song would be in the soundtrack to Faith and Caleb’s love story?

That’s a tough choice. Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” best fits their relationship. But John Legend’s “All of Me” has the line about a smart mouth that reminds me of Faith.

 

What are you currently reading?

A Small Town Christmas by Nan Reinhardt. I just read the scene inside the winery where Sam tastes Conor Flaherty’s chambourcin wine for the first time. Now I want a glass! It’s a great read and I’m falling hard for these characters.
