Hey y’all. Maddie James here. I am very pleased and excited to have been invited to participate in Sable Hunter’s Hell Yeah! Kindle Word! It was fun to merge pieces of my cowboy worlds with her Texas world at Highland Ranch. I knew when I read Sable’s How to Rope a McCoy (which I highly recommend if you haven’t read it!), that I wanted to set my story in the same setting. You might find it interesting that both Sarah and Cole, my hero and heroine in Seducing Sarah, have ties to my other books and series. Let me tell you about the crossover connections.
Montana Heat Series
I consider Seducing Sarah to be book two in my Montana Heat series. Cole Stevens was
introduced in the first book of the series, Corporate Cowboy, as the ranch manager for the Branded Filly Ranch, owned by Cole’s best friend, Gage Parker. Gage is the hero in Corporate Cowboy. He and another friend, Amanda, were mentioned in Seducing Sarah. Amanda’s book is upcoming, titled Saving Amanda. You can find out more about the Montana Heat series on my website.
Montana McKennas Series
I made a brief mention of Gage’s cousins and the McKenna Ranch in Paradise Valley in Montana, near Yellowstone National Park. The Parker/McKenna clan have two ranches in Montana—the McKenna Ranch, and Gage Parker’s Branded Filly, near Billings. The Paradise Valley property that Cole buys in Seducing Sarah, will play a part in future books set in that area. There are currently six books in the Montana McKennas series, and I co-write this series with author Jan Scarbrough. There is also additional information on my website about the entire Montana Ranchers series.
Sweet Water Ranch Series
Sarah MacKay (stage name Sarah McClendon) is the youngest sister to five brothers who live and work on Sweet Water Ranch in South Dakota. I didn’t know that Sarah even existed until I started plotting Seducing Sarah. Imagine my surprise when I realized that Sarah, a character who popped into my head one day, was the youngest sister of these five fine cowboys. I love surprises! The Sweet Water Ranch series is set to launch in late fall 2016 through 2017—five brothers and five books, and like Sarah told Cole, those brothers are all cowboy. All the time. Watch for Ethan’s book coming in November, 2016, with Evan, Dylan, Aaron, and Aiden following—all coming soon!
Legend’s Landing Bed & Breakfast Books
If you blinked, you would probably miss this connection. In the third novella of the Legend’s Landing Bed & Breakfast series, Perfectly Matched, country music star Nash Rhodes falls in love with the town wallflower, Mary Lou Picketts. This series is set in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, just a hop-skip or so from Nashville, where Nash now has his own country music label—and has recently signed the talented Sarah McClendon. Look for more along this storyline in future LLBB books!
I hope you enjoyed this brief glimpse into some of my other words, and I hope you enjoy Seducing Sarah. Thanks for reading!
When Cole Stevens travels from Montana to Texas to close a business deal with his old friend, Heath McCoy, he never expects to close in on a relationship, too. But with one brief moment of contact in the airport with a pretty young woman carrying a guitar, his heart starts to unravel.
Sarah McClendon, fresh out of the gate after landing the runner-up spot on American Star, is touted as the up-and-coming country music star of the year. When she tangles with her manager at the Highlands Ranch annual barbecue, Cole steps up to the plate to protect her from the smarmy, poor excuse of a human being.
But it’s just a weekend right? Cole will be back home on the ranch in Montana come Monday, and Sarah has a career to get off the ground. Can a love-at-first-sight weekend turn into the happily-ever-after neither of them are sure they even want?
