Back in May, I went to a writer’s conference in Chicago and met up with several good friends. One of them, Kirsten Osbourne, casually said one night at dinner, “Would you ladies be interested in writing a series together? I was thinking a ranch somewhere out west, six siblings, meddling parents…..that kind of thing.” It took Cindy Caldwell and I about two seconds to say “Of course!”
The three of us had organized a much larger project last year at this time, as we all write historicals. That was the American Mail-Order Brides series and had 45 authors and 50 books, one for each state. If you want to check those out, you can see them all in order here.
For this project, we wanted to go smaller and release multiple books each. We invited Caroline Lee and Amelia Adams to join us and the first book in the series, Kirsten’s Short-Order Sheriff released October 10. My book, Veterinarians Vacation, came next, followed by Amelia’s Accidental Agent, Caroline’s Whitewater Wooing and finally, on Monday, Cindy’s Honest Horseman. The books are standalone romances, but characters do make appearances from book to book and it’s a fun, family focused world at a gorgeous resort in Idaho. My next one will be out December 5, Charming Chef.
Veterinarian’s Vacation is a second chance romance, featuring two veterinarians–Jake and Jess, who is a cousin of the six Weston siblings and grew up on the ranch with them. This was a very fun book to write, and these are sweet romances.
