Ever been to a bar or saloon where all the cowboys hangout after work or on the weekends? If not, ever wish you could? Where the cowboys drink whiskey and beer, the cowgirls are independent, tough, but feminine and the Texas Two Step is the most popular dance on the floor? Well come on down to the Ugly Stick Saloon where bar owner Audrey Anderson will welcome you with a big smile and draft beer.
I decided to create an entire community of characters based around a fictitious bar on a county line between Temptation and Hole in the Wall, Texas called the Ugly Stick Saloon.
So far I’ve written 9 stories centered around characters who frequent the Ugly Stick Saloon and I plan many more. I love my characters and look forward to revisiting them time and again. I hope my readers enjoy them as well. Here’s a sneak peak at the next Ugly Stick Saloon book coming in August 2012:
Boots and Leather

Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon!
Ugly Stick Saloon
Libby Jones had been on the road for over a year, running from her past, when she landed in Temptation, Texas, working at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Eight months later, she knows she has to leave or risk her past catching up with her. Then why did she take the Gray Wolf twins up on an offer to go riding on their ranch? Getting involved wasn’t in the cards for this free-rider.
They’re just the Kiowa Cowboys to rope her in…
Mark and Luke Gray Wolf had been trying to capture Libby Jones’s attention since she’d started work at the Ugly Stick, only she’s blown them off at every attempt to ask her out, until now. Determined to show her a good time on the ranch, they take her to their special project site on the ranch and show her what she’s been missing for eight months. They’re plan: to expose her to the temptations only twins can provide to persuade her to stay for the long haul.
Convinced she’s falling for the two, Libby longs for a life she can’t have, knowing she must leave before her whereabouts are discovered. But all hell breaks loose when her past walks through the doors of the saloon. They Gray Wolf twins have a fight on their hands to keep Libby from running again.
