Today I have the beautiful London St James here to talk about her latest delicious tale.
Thanks so much for having me on your blog today to talk a little bit about my new release, Welcome to Paradise. I had a great time writing this novella which is the introduction to a new western erotic romance series I’m writing called Paradise Ranch, set on a 980 acre cattle ranch in the harsh land of West Texas.
Research is always a big part of writing any story, and writing something in the western genre is a new to me subject to write about. The good news is, I’ve been one of those lucky people to live in a great many places, meet people from all walks of life, and travel a lot, and Texas, as well as cattle ranches, happens to be a part of my background.
When I was a sprout of a kid, I loved to ride horses with my BFF, whose father was a cattle rancher, and I loved hanging out with her and riding a giant horse called Mouse. The place was a veritable zoo of horses, sheep, working cattle dogs, cats, chickens, goats, and cool places to hang out and hide like barns, round tops, and out houses. We even went swimming in a huge water tank where the cows moseyed up to drink from. *Smiles* So, while I didn’t delve into serious research for this novella, I did pull from some of those memories to get the setting and feel of Paradise Ranch. But memories will only get me so far, and I know as the series continues, I’ll be digging in to research more and more about life on a cattle ranch.
Description: Just three days before her thirtieth birthday, Acquisition Editor for Starling Press, Sutton Callaway, has buried the last of her family in the cemetery on the plot of land she inherited.
After turning down the powerful and wealthy owner of Triple Bar-S Ranch to sell her inheritance and walk away from the obligations of running one of the biggest cattle ranches in West Texas, Sutton puts her Dallas condo on the market, resigns her position from SP, packs the contents of her life into boxes, and heads for the one place filled with bittersweet memories—Paradise Ranch.
Will Sutton be able to handle the pressures of being the newly appointed cattle baroness, the rough and tumble men under her employ, and the temptation of a sexy mystery man? Or will her grandmother’s matriarchal boots be too big for her to fill?
