I woke up this morning to a beautiful spring day, the view from my bedroom window vibrant with dozens of shades of green. It's almost enough to make me forget the horrible draught of last year and the frightening wild fires that destroyed houses and property all over the state.

 But for now, the beautiful lake a block from my house is almost full. Boats cruise the water again. My ornamental magnolia tree has never had so many blooms. A bluebird family is nesting in my back yard. There are four babies. I put out mealworms twice a day and delight in watching the mother swoop down to snatch them for her four babies.

Though I still like to visit my native Louisiana, I must admit I love living in Texas. And once again it has inspired a new series and a remarkable Texas family. This month meet Damien Lambert, a rancher who lives by the cowboy creed and risks all to protect the woman he loves. When the going gets tough, it's great to have a Texas cowboy on your side.

    I didn't know you lived in Texas. What part of the state? I am originally from Ohio but moved to Southeast Texas a little over 6 years ago. We have had a very pretty spring and I am thankful for all the rain! The lake over by us is also almost full which is great because there is a huge fishing tournament this weekend. I will have to check out your newest book & series. Thanks for sharing

  2. I really enjoyed the first bookin this series and am looking forward to the next ones. This family is interesting and I hope we see more of the new baby in the future books also.

  3. Hi, Laura,

    I live in Montgomery, Texas on Lake Conroe. I moved here 8 years ago. I really like it and of course it helps that my son and his family and my daughter all live in Houston. Love living close to my grandsons. What lake are you on?

  4. Hi, TX reader,

    Glad you liked the book. Just finished writing book 3 in the series. I think you'll like what I did with Belle's story.
