The Big D Throw Down

As I mentioned in my last blog post, April is the release month for my new series – the Lone Star Law series. Think big oil, sexy ranchers, devious crime, heroic federal agents, and dark family secrets. I’m super excited about the release of book one in the series, Lay Down the Law, so I’m going to draw a name from those of you who comment on this post and the winner will receive a free copy of Lay Down the Law in either paperback (U.S. only) or ebook (any format).

Here’s the twist: since the book is set in Dallas (as are most of my books) tell me one thing you know about Big D. Any little fact will do, but if you have to resort to Google, do your best to be creative 🙂

I’ll draw a name and post the winner on Monday, April 6th, so you have until midnight CST on Sunday the 5th to get your comments posted.

Lay Down The Law 300 DPI Peyton Davis is part rancher, part federal prosecutor, and all Texan. Strong and steady, she’s known for keeping her cool in every situation, but when she meets the beautiful and accomplished heiress to the Gantry oil fortune, she falls fast and hard. When she learns her new assignment is to investigate the Gantry family’s business, her entire belief system will be tested.

Lily Gantry leads a privileged and protected life and she has no idea it’s all about to blow up in her face. What she does know is that the striking rancher she met at the Cattle Baron’s Ball has the potential to steal her heart. Will she feel the same way when she finds out Peyton Davis’s investigation threatens not only her family’s fortune, but the very foundation of her identity?

  1. Okay, everything I know about Dallas in a nut shell: Bobby didn’t die he went back to being the Man From Atlantis (as the shower hints at). Bing Crosby’s daughter shot Major Nelson and today’s weather is predicted to be a balmy 67 with 90% humidity. Oh, and I enjoy your books (figured it can’t hurt to put that in as well)

    At any rate I am looking forward to reading your new book … liked Courtship and am catching up on some of your earlier titles after reading that.

    Dallas is the 19th Gayest state in the U.S. and as the saying goes everything is bigger in Texas. And I bet there are alot of Hot looking country girls.

  20. Dallas is big. Not everyone wears a cowboy hat or boots or owns a horse, nor do they have a gun hung around their hips. The Dallas Cowboys do not play in Dallas but in Arlington and training camp is in Frisco. President Kennedy was killed in Dallas and still today you will hear people discussing this and disagreeing. Dallas is gay friendly. What more do you need.
