Western romance author Kathleen Rice Adams burst on the scene two and a half years ago and since then, I’ve been a fan of her work. She writes the kind of westerns I love to read–stories of tough cowboys who sometimes have to straddle the law to find justice. Women who are equally tough and determined. Her first full length, PRODIGAL GUN, firmly cemented her as a force to reckon with in this genre. She recently won The Peacemaker Award presented by Western Fictioneers for her short story, The Second Best Ranger in Texas. If you want something to satisfy and haven’t read any of her work, you need to pick one up. Here’s her newest that will be out Friday. It’s a short read.
Danger waits along the last three miles of track…and so does love.
When an accident leaves Hamilton Hollister convinced he’ll never be more than half a man, he abandons construction of a railway spur his lumber mill needs to survive.
Believing no woman shackled by convention can be complete, railroad heiress Katherine Brashear refuses to let the nearly finished track die.
The magic of Christmas in a small Texas town may help them bridge the distance…if their hearts lay the rails for the last three miles.
What do you look for in a western romance? Is it a cowboy hero? Dispensing justice to a bad guy? The romance or all of it?
Again, I’m offering a $10 gift card to one person who comments. I’m going to be in New York City this week and won’t be able to comment or draw a winner until late Sunday.
ALSO, A LATE NEWSFLASH! Kathleen has added two more prizes to the giveaway. An e-book of both THE LAST THREE MILES and THE SECOND BEST RANGER IN TEXAS!! That means we’ll have THREE winners this week when I get back from NY. YIPPEE!
