A series can be a group of stories with a common thread, a family of siblings who each have heir own stories, a band of brothers like a military unit with each member getting his story. Some series have an overarching external plot that ties them together. Some series have a place that ties them together like a small town or a bar where you see some of the same people over and over—think Cheers or Ugly Stick Saloon.
As a reader, I like to know what happens next. After the characters resolve their conflicts, where do they go from there? In the Ugly Stick Saloon series, I get to revisit my characters who live in Temptation and Hold in the Wall Texas because they visit the Ugly Stick Saloon and invariably go there for advice. You see the owner, Audrey Anderson, and her man Jackson Gray Wolf as well as some of the waitresses whose stories have been told in the series. I love revisiting these characters and meeting new ones whose stories have yet to be told.
I wrote Sex Ed as one of my first Ugly Stick Saloon books. Lacey Lambert was a secondary character in that book, but my readers waned to see her story. Well I finally got around to writing her story. And the secondary character in her story, Cory gets to have his story in Boots and Roses, coming in July.

Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon!
She wants no strings…but he wants it all.
After her philandering husband left her, Lacey Lambert found sanctuary, and a better class of friends, at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Where she learned that the best revenge—against her ex, and the “friends” who kicked her out of the Temptation Garden Club—is to live life to the fullest.
Now that her best friend is moving out of her apartment building, she’s feeling a little lonely. And more than ready for a little commitment-free sex with the hot new downstairs tenant.
Freshly divorced, Nick McBride isn’t looking for another failed relationship. But when the luscious brunette offers no-strings sex—with him and his brother—he can’t come up with a good reason to refuse.
After he gets over the shock that she likes it loud, long, and in front of an open window, he finds himself wanting more time with her. Maybe even on a permanent basis. But it’ll take every ounce of his cowboy charms to convince her to let him sweep her off her feet.
