This Week's Sneak Peek at DO NOT FORSAKE ME, Coming in July!

NEW for 2015: DO NOT FORSAKE ME, the epic sequel to OUTLAW HEARTS     The men inside the jail laughed. "Jake Harkner, kind and thoughtful toward kids, and a ruthless, murderin' sonofabitch toward everybody else."

     "Something like that," Jake answered. "You try anything, or hurt Sparky, and you'll see the ruthless, murdering sonofabitch side of me."

     (Reporter Jeff is watching all of this) Five men against one, (he is thinking). Jeff wondered how he would manage to find his next breath.

     "What about the hired gun, Bo?" Jake yelled. "Who is he?"

     "Pierce Henry. He's out in the street somewhere, waiting to shoot your ass if we can't do it. One way or another, you'll die today for killin' Jack, and for what you done to Brad. The kid is hurtin' real bad, Jake. He might not live."

     "He made his choice," Jake yelled back. "Now come on out of there unless you're ready to die. Give it some thought."

     It was then that everything changed. A little boy came running down the street on short little legs. "Gampa! Gampa!"

     Jeff froze in terror. My God, it's Jake's grandson!

     "Jesus Christ!" Jake swore.

     After that, all hell broke loose. Jake charged off the boardwalk and literally leaped over a hitching post. He ducked and rolled his way toward his grandson while guns blazed from inside the jail.

Banner that will be over my table at the Romantic Times Convention in May 2015       There is so much going on right now that I can hardly keep up with it myself! Less than two months until OUTLAW HEARTS is re-released, and three until DO NOT FORSAKE ME comes out. Wow, I'm starting to get nervous -- hope all of you readers love these books as much as I do! I'm planning some wonderful promotional events, including giving away two framed sets of 8 1/2" x 11" prints of the cover art (without the wording) of both books, and one framed set of 17" x 22" size. (Click here for details and photos of the prints.) Keep checking back for details on how to enter the drawings! (If you're interested in how this gorgeous art is created, please take a look at the video "Artist JON PAUL -- The Art of Romance." )

       Plus, Sourcebooks has so much scheduled for DO NOT FORSAKE ME  that I am going to be very busy -- all sorts of blogs and a spotlight tour. They designed a gorgeous printed fabric flag/banner for me to use in the book signing hall at Romantic Times in May (that's it on the left). DO NOT FORSAKE ME will be featured on the front cover of Romantic Times magazine in June, along with an inside article/interview of me. Keep checking back for more information! (Read more about OUTLAW HEARTS and DO NOT FORSAKE ME here.) I am now 133 pages into LOVE'S SWEET REVENGE (Jake #3). It's 1896 and things are changing. Jake can't take the law into his own hands any more ... or can he? Where there's a will, there's a way, especially when you're Jake Harkner. The cover, also by Jon Paul, has been completed, and oh, how I wish I could share it with you!

       Meanwhile, OUTLAW HEARTS and DO NOT FORSAKE ME are available for pre-order, in print and e-book editions! Pre-order now, and the books will be shipped as soon as they are released! That will be 1 June 2015 for OUTLAW HEARTS and 7 July 2015 for DO NOT FORSAKE ME.

Rosanne with her replica Colt .45

A Colt .45, much like the gun my heroes use - and my own .30-.30 rifle. The Colt is surprisingly heavy and requires a strong hand and arm to draw, cock and fire in one swift movement. That would take a LOT of practice!

Because of the large number of requests I receive for full lists of my books, the Books In Print section of this website is frequently updated to reflect my latest releases, as well as listing all of my past works. I have also added a My Books Now Available in E-Reader Formats page with ordering links for all e-reader formats. You can also use the "Search" link below to find new, used, and Kindle versions of my books on! Associate
