If you've hung around the Bat Cave for any stretch of time, it's probably pretty apparent I'm a bit of a squeeing fangirl for western romances. The settings, the strong heroines with gumption, the themes of redemption and forgiveness, and oh yeah...the cowboys. Lord help me, the sight of a good looking man rockin' a pair of jeans, some boots and a Stetson just does something to me. For some women it's firemen, guys in military uniform or UPS drivers. For me? It's the cowboy. So when Harlequin asked if the Bat Cave would be a stop on their blog tour promoting Linda Lael Miller's upcoming contemporary western romance trilogy and, oh yeah, they had some behind the scene footage of the cover shoot? Well what red-blooded cowboy-lover could say no to that?
So without further ado, let me turn it over to Jayne, eHarlequin.com's Community Manager!
Meet The McKettricks!
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Lael Miller returns with a brand-new trilogy featuring three brooding McKettrick cowboys and the feisty women who lay claim to their hearts. To celebrate this happy occasion Harlequin has not only created a book trailer for the series, but also shot a behind the scenes documentary called Meet The McKettricks: Behind the scenes at a Harlequin Cover Shoot starring our own Margie Miller, Harlequin’s single title Creative Manager. Granted Margie has a tough job, but you have to admit that on at least this one occasion any single one of us ladies here back at the Mother Ship would have gladly traded places with Margie so that we could direct the talent for this trilogy of books.
For instance meet the hero of Book One, McKettricks of Texas: Tate on sale January 26th:
A genuine cowboy with a suave side as well, Tate was destined to become a family man in his hometown of Blue River. Derailed in law school, he is now attempting to get back on course and change the local perception of him as a rich guy who plays at being a rancher to the real thing. Most importantly, he’s determined to win back the girl he left behind, hometown sweetheart Libby Remington. But how can he ask Libby to forgive him when he can’t forgive himself for the one big mistake that’s brought so much pain—and yet a double joy as well—to his life?
And then there’s Austin and Garrett pictured below…you see what I mean?? SUCH a hardship!!!
Of course Linda Lael Miller is excitedly anticipating spending more time with her
current favorite cowboys. Can you blame her? We sure don’t and we’re hoping for even more McKettricks in the future.
