My new contemporary romance, On the Trail of Love, releases today!
I went down a rabbit hole when I wrote this story, as my usual genre is historical fiction.
But when I met a young lady who actually ran a mechanical bull business, her stories fascinated me and I knew I had the makings of a fun adventure on the road which turned into On the Trail of Love.
Having lived in Paducah, KY, for the last thirteen years, I’ve also had the chance to collect a whole slew of funny Southern aphorisms and sayings, and this story became the perfect venue for them.
Here’s the Amazon book description:
The last thing Sadie O’Toole needs is a cowboy too handsome for his own good.
After canceling her wedding. Sadie decides to hit the road and honor her grandfather’s dying wish by traveling one last rodeo circuit with the unusual inheritance he left her: a turquoise 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup and a mechanical bull.
Before his death, her grandfather contracted Henry Blake, a former rodeo star with a past, to accompany her, and Sadie is furious when she finds out. Only the fact that her grandfather was a shrewd judge of character persuades her to reluctantly accept Henry as her road trip partner.
Despite Sadie’s initial animosity, an undeniable attraction buds between them and sparks fly while they crisscross the South working rodeos and county fairs. But when Henry’s past returns to haunt him, threatening to take everything he holds dear, Sadie is forced to figure out exactly what her heart wants from life, love, and one certain cowboy.
Since we’re all under quarantine, restricted to our homes, if you need a little escape, then go On the Trail of Love and take a vicarious road trip through the South with a mechanical bull!
