Release day: Wild Texas Rose

7 August 2012

Today is the official release of Wild Texas Rose by Jodi Thomas (paperback, Berkley).  Here’s the blurb:

New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas gives fans a reason to celebrate with her latest Whispering Mountain novel about a woman who’s cursed when it comes to love—and the man determined to save her…

Twenty-five-year-old Rose McMurray may be beautiful, smart, and capable of running her adopted family’s ranch at Whispering Mountain, but she’s backed away from marriage three times without giving any reasons. Everyone thinks Rose is a coward, afraid of any adven-ture, including falling in love. She’s never done a single wild or reckless thing in her life…until now.

Jodi dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I love climbing back into historical romance.  I think from the day I saw Gone with the Wind, I’ve always loved love stories set in the past.  In my new book Wild Texas Rose, I returned to a time period I know well–Texas in the 1870s.  Only now after twenty-five years of writing historical novels, as well as contemporaries, I decided to write in a slightly different style I think all my readers will enjoy.  So, come along with me on a fast-paced, laughter-filled ride across Texas.

You can find out more about Jodi’s work at her website.

    All I can say is I can’t wait to read it! I’ve always liked traveling to the past as well especially back to a time of horses and cowboys.

    Hi Jodi
    Huge fan here. If you write it, I’m reading it! 🙂 I’m alway caught up in your characters. You make them real people, so much so, I find it hard to use the term ‘characters’. I read to become immersed in the lives of the people in the story. I am always THERE in your stories.
    Thank you. 🙂

    Ooh, I like the sound of this. It would be interesting to see what sort of reckless adventures Rose gets up to with the man determined to save her. Good luck!
