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?

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.

How can she become a new version of herself when she’s married to her past?

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.

The McAllister Brothers, Book 3

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.

Maria has every reason to avoid and resent a man with a badge, but when she needs protection, the last man she thinks she can trust is the first one she turns to.

She’s on the run…

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

Annie Sims and her sister Jessie are running from their past. She’s headed to San Antonio where they can disappear, but bad luck follows them. With her funds depleted and her car useless, Truitt’s offer of a temporary sanctuary with no questions asked seems too good to be true. Soon Annie finds herself falling under the spell of the kind, silent rancher. But can she let her guard down and still keep her sister safe, or is she courting more danger?

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: Paris Wynters discusses how she keeps track of characters and more!

Paris Wynters stopped by the Tule blog to discuss the second book in the Navy SEALs of Little Creek series, Matched!


Sunflowers on Rack With Price Tag Near Orange Canopy TentIf you could spend the day with Inara or Anthony, who would you choose and what would you do?

I would choose Anthony because I cannot sing and since Inara loves to sing that wouldn’t go well. Haha. As for what we would do, probably cooking lessons or spend the day exploring restaurants or farmer’s markets. Plus, with his sense of humor I know I’d be laughing most of the day.


This is the second book in your Navy SEALs of Little Creek series. Do you find it more challenging to write the first book in a series or to write the subsequent novels?

There are challenges and benefits on both sides. The first novel is always hard because I am getting the world set up, understanding and researching areas I do not know, etc. But the subsequent novels are easier in that aspect because it’s like returning home. But the challenge is also not to make each book sound the same either. So, both can be challenging, just in different ways.


Person Using Tablet Computer With KeyboardAre your characters set before you begin writing or do you let them develop as you go? What did that development process look like for Matched

I’d like to say they are set beforehand. But they also tend to veer off as I write and put them into different situations. I knew Tony and Inara pretty well from book one. At least at their core. But the developmental process became looking at their core wounds, their backstory, what made them who they were. Because I knew I was writing a series, I had to know who the men in the group were at their core right from the beginning so I didn’t run the risk of sticking myself into a corner I didn’t want to be in or not being able to fully develop the characters the way I wanted to. But Inara also had to be developed from early on because she is Taya’s best friend and appears in book one. I actually have an excel sheet for each character, things they say, important information that occurs in each book, etc. It helps me keep track of all the information I need to make sure I am consistent.


What do you want readers to take away after reading this story?

We all have a past, things that affect us. Some of that has to do with the relationships we have with our parents. Those experiences and relationships define us early on. I think what I want my readers to take away is that we all experience this and it makes us who we are—both our strengths and our weaknesses. And that we are who we are meant to be because of this. For example, Tony has some faults because of what happened with his mother and how he chose to handle it. But his loyalty, his devotion to his sisters growing up, his ability to love, and so many other aspects of him also developed because of his relationship with his mom. Everything has both positives and negatives, and we should embrace that.


Silver Macbook Air and Goose Neck LampWhere and when do you get most of your writing done?

Most of my writing occurs at home in my office. I try to write every day but the times vary depending on what is going on and how I am feeling. Some days that occurs early in the morning and other times later in the day. When it is a sunny day, I love to get work done first thing so I can enjoy the rest of the day outside. 


What are you currently reading?

I just finished reading Kelly’s Siskind’s The Beat Match.

Tule Author Q&A: Paris Wynters discusses Mongolian characters and marriage of convenience!

New Tule author Paris Wynters dropped in to talk about the first book in her Navy Seals of Little Creek series, Issued!


Close Photography of Grilled Meat on GriddleWelcome to Tule! What is one thing you can tell our readers that no one else knows about you?

Like my character Taya, I can’t cook my way out of a wet paper bag. For example, I was cooking burgers and walked away from the BBQ. Well, when I went out back to let my dogs out for their last potty break for the night, they were sniffing around the BBQ. Yup, forgot about the burgers for six hours. Needless to say they were inedible and I wasted an entire tank of gas. Seriously though, if you come to my house and I am not ordering, eat first.


In Issued, your heroine Taya enters into the military’s spouse-matching program as a way to start over. Would you have ever considered joining this kind of program?

Haha, I’ve thought about it. I think it would be interesting and something that I wouldn’t dismiss, even if I find it a bit terrifying to leave NY and my family and friends for something new.


Issued features many mentions of Mongolian culture. Why was it important for you to include these pieces?

Being multi-racial (my mother is Mongolian and Russian, my biological father is Latino), it was something I wanted to write about. It’s part of who I am and haven’t found many books that feature Mongolian main characters, especially in contemporary stories.


Woman Wearing White Wedding Gown Holding Hands With Man While WalkingThis is a fun marriage of convenience romance. What drew you to this trope? What’s your favorite trope to write?

I have a lot of friends and family in the military. Military marriages always fascinated me, and there’s always the saying that if the military wanted you to have a spouse, they would have issued you one. That’s partly where the concept came from. But the other part was I always wanted to read romances about the home lives of these men and women, something other than a romance during a mission.


What are you currently reading?

Currently I am catching up on some John Scalzi books that have been on my TBR (The Consuming Fire is the one I am reading right now) along with The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey. I’m a big sci-fi reader.
