releases today! I am so excited. This is the first book in the Cowboy Craze series featuring the Blackhawk brothers – Daniel, Ezekiel (Easy), Samuel, and Benjamin (Benjen). These handsome men are all kinds of sexy. This is a spin-off series from Hell Yeah, set in the same area, and the characters in CC do run into characters from the HY world. In She’s Everything, Sara is befriended by Ryder, Pepper, Molly, and Cato. Jaxson also makes an appearance and we get a hint at his upcoming book – A HELLUVA MAN.
I wanted to write a book where the hero takes one look at the heroine and is lovestruck. BAM! Ha! I think I pulled it off, you can let me know if you agree. I spent a day or two roaming around the setting of She’s Everything and I want to share some photos with you.
Below the photos is the cover, blurb, and link to the product page.
I am absolutely entranced by the corner of the world where I live. Most of my books, save for the ones set in Louisiana or East Texas are set within an hour’s drive from Austin – some north, some south, etc. She’s Everything is set near Kingland, Texas, just north of Austin.
So, are you ready?
Sit back and let me show you where Daniel and Sara’s love was born and grew to exquisite fulfillment.
This is Packsaddle Mountain where Blackhawk Ranch is:
This is how the mountain looks with their Llano River frontage:
Here is a shot of the side of the mountain, close to where the lightning bolt hit:
This is the Slab where Daniel and Sara went swimming.
When Daniel found Sara, this is where she was working and living in the storage room. I called it Rev. Mike’s Dam Pub, but as you can see Jim is the real culprit.
When Daniel told Sara about the battle on Packsaddle Mountain where his ancestor was killed in the last skirmish between settlers and the local Native American tribe, he told her how he and his brothers were accused of defacing this marker that talked of the event. The vandalism actually occurred earlier this year:
When Daniel takes Sara to see the land where he wants to build her a house, it’s in an area called Baby Head mountain, which is named for a horrific murder of a small child, supposedly by Indians, but that has since been questioned. Anyway, here is the marker about Baby Head and below that is a place on Baby Head mountain that I imagined could have been Daniel and Sara’s one day.
This is the restaurant where Daniel and Sara went to eat after visiting Zane Saucier’s law office in Austin. This is the original house where TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was filmed.
Here is the Longhorn Caverns where Sara told Daniel of her history and this is the formation that reminded her of Benjen’s little dog, Hope.
This is the Seaquist House in Mason that I called Callum House, that supposedly belonged to Sara’s mother’s family. These folks owned the Topaz Fields in Texas.
This is where Daniel proposed to Sara at Gorman Falls, near Lake Buchanan. And below that is her wedding ring, using a Texas Topaz stone.
Here are the dinosaur tracks on the river near Daniel’s house that they saw when they were thinking about how they’d leave their mark on the world.
And this is where they got married, this castle isn’t too many miles from the Dam Pub, if you can imagine that.
And this is the beautiful cover and the blurb - - I hope you will enjoy reading it and looking back on these photos to illustrate the story.
Daniel Blackhawk never believed in love at first sight until he falls for Sarah Riley like a ton of bricks. From the moment he sees her rush out into a busy highway to save the life of a little child, he knows she is the woman for him.
Daniel isn’t the only one who’s captivated. Like a bolt from the blue, Sara is struck by the handsome cowboy who insists they are meant to be.
He’s hard to resist, especially when he sets his mind on proving to her how good they can be together.
There’s only one problem, Sara isn’t free.
She’s been hurt, tricked, and abandoned by someone she trusted, so making herself vulnerable again is a difficult choice.
Laying his heart on the line, Daniel sets out to show Sara he is exactly who she’s been waiting for all her life. He wants to be her champion, her dragon-slayer, and her knight in shining armor – all rolled into one.
With exquisite attention to her every need, Daniel begins to woo her – making her happy, keeping her safe, proving that there is nothing he won’t do for her. Their chemistry is off the charts, the heat between them is irresistible.
Sara is Daniel’s everything.
Their happy-ever-after seems assured…until the unthinkable happens.
When their world falls apart, only the power of love can save them.
Thank you so much for sharing my world with me - - inspiration - - you never know where you’ll find it. Hint - - I’ve been watching Outlander and there will be a hint of Jamie Fraser in Benjen Blackhawk.
