New Releases from TWRP – And Fun Facts about the authors!

I am proud to share some of the latest releases from The Wild Rose Press… Please check out the books and follow these authors on Twitter and Facebook, etc.

Enjoy the wonderful stories AND the fun fact tidbits…


Anna Small with How To Marry A Rogue, Historical romance novel 

Jack promises to protect his best friend’s little sister on her trip abroad. But is he the biggest threat of them all?   

Fun Fact: Part of the story is set in Bordeaux, at the hero’s family winery, so I happily did some research at a local Florida winery. All that tasting and drinking really helped inspire me! The rest of the book is set in England, where I grew up in the beautiful countryside and went to school outside of London. I hope this experience gives my historical romances a flavor of their own.

Judy Ann Davis with UNDER STARRY SKIES, Western Historical Mystery Romance Novel

Romance happens under Colorado’s starry skies. 

Fun Fact: The story of school teacher Maria O’Donnell teaching Indian Two Bears to read and write in 1875 evolved in “Under Starry Skies” since I had worked in adult education and understood the value of reading and writing for all adults. Two Bears was a minor, but favorite character in my first book, “Red Fox Woman.” I had to bring him back in the sequel since my readers fell in love with him. They also fell in love with the youngest Ashmore brother, Tydall, who’s my story’s hero.

Mickey J. Corrigan with Whiskey Sour Noir, Book #1 in The Hard Stuff series; a noir novella, dark romance. 

Love is like a whiskey sour: you’ve got to watch out or it sneaks up on you. And it can be so bittersweet.

Fun Fact: One day the phrase “whiskey sour noir” just popped into my head. I loved it and wanted to create a story to go with it. A friend had told me about a close relative who had been labelled a sex offender, and how that had totally ruined the man’s life. So I used that concept as my theme. 

When my editor at the Wild Rose Press called the novella “book #1,” a series was born. Each story takes place in the imaginary Dusky Beach, a seedy little Florida beach town where the women seem to drink too hard and fall too hard for the wrong kind of men. 

After my editor Diana Carlile created the superb cover for Whiskey Sour Noir, she came up with the next title, Vodka Warrior. And another amazing cover. She is so awesome!

The next book in the series, Mai Tai Guy, will be a quickie and a free read. Book #3 is in line for editing. I’m not going to tell you which kind of liquor is up next in Dusky Beach. But I bet you can guess!

Mickey J. Corrigan Vodka Warrior: Book # 2 in The Hard Stuff series, a gritty romantic comedy novella. 

Theresa Tierney is over the hill and drinking enough to roll straight down that slippery slope—and she blames it all on the body god next door.

Fun Fact: Vodka Warriors is the second book in The Hard Stuff series about tough women who fall in love with the wrong kind of man. The inspiration for this story came from my dental hygienist. She entertained me while cleaning my teeth, recounting the antics of a hard drinking woman at war with her neighbor, a younger man who partied daily with strippers. 

The typical crazy South Florida tale became enlarged in my mind as I wrote about Theresa Tierney, the body god next door, and the other kooky characters in Vodka Warrior. Like Whiskey Sour Noir, Book #1 in The Hard Stuff series, the story takes place in the seedy town of Dusky Beach. This is where all the Hard Stuff women live—and love.

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing two Wyatt Earps and Doc Holliday.

Giveaway!!! I am actually trying to learn how to use Rafflecopter, so I am doing a demo test run giveaway. Enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card! The prize is real, though, so be sure to enter. 🙂 There is more than one way to enter – One way is to answer the following question:

Which of these lines are from Tombstone and which from Wyatt Earp? (Answer T for Tombstone and W for Wyatt Earp – You should find a place to answer in the Raffletcopter box below) –

1) “All right, Clanton… you called down the thunder, well now you’ve got it! You see that?”

2) “I’m your huckleberry”

3) “I’m a woman, I like men. If that means I’m not “lady-like”, then I guess I’m just not a lady! At least I’m honest.”

4) “I know it’s not always easy being my friend, but I’ll be there when you need me.”

5) “Mister, I’ve been in a really bad mood for the last few years, so I’d appreciate it if you’d just leave me alone.”

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Liberty Divided Isle of Fangs Book 2 ~

WANT: Kilmer as Doc. I was mesmerized by the way he played this part. I love a bad boy, and he was sexy and funny and tough and amazing.

WED:  Russell as Wyatt. This is tough, because I like Costner better than Russell overall, but I didn’t see Wyatt Earp, and I did see Tombstone, and I LOVED this movie, loved Kurt Russell in is.

WASTE: Costner as Wyatt. Yikes…it’s like ripping out my own heart, vampire style, because I ADORE Costner. But, process of elimination, and I didn’t see him in the role, and someone’s gotta go…(rules are rules)…but I love you, Kevin!!! Please forgive me.


SILVER JAMES, author of SEASON OF THE WITCH, Website: http://www.silverjames.com

Want: Doc Holliday/Val Kilmer because he’s all dark, dangerous, intense…and intent. When I’m looking for a booty call, that works for me! A bad boy with sex appeal and no strings. (Though I really wish you’d offered up Virgil Earp in this version because…SAM ELLIOTT!)

Wed: Wyatt Earp/Kurt Russell because…dude! Kurt Russell! Oh, sorry. Wyatt Earp! But definitely Kurt’s version. Why? Because again, intense and focused. And loyal. He’s all about the family. If I’m going to wed someone, I want to know I can depend on him now and tomorrow and the day after. Besides, he looks awesome in a duster and that mustache. Just sayin’…

Waste: Wyatt Earp/Kevin Costner because I never could take Costner’s version seriously and I have to waste someone.


Author: Nancy Fraser and Patti Shenberger, authors of The Lawman’s Agreement  Website: www.nancyfraser.ca

Want: Kevin Costner. I have loved this absolutely sexy man since the movie No Way Out! That seduction scene in the back of the limo was fantastic, and often used as inspiration for writing a lovescene … especially the humor of it. Plus, he gets professional acting chops points for holding his own against James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams! His Wyatt Earp was well done and sexy!

Wed: Kurt Russell, despite the fact the he and Goldie have never made it legally official, he’s definitely “home and hearth” material. Plus, in his prime he had an edgy way about him. Loved his somewhat scruffy Wyatt Earp.

Waste: Val Kilmer. I’ve not really got anything AGAINST Val, just nothing for him either. I do have to admit, I was shocked to learn he has a fantastic singing voice. Saw him in the off-Broadway production of The Ten Commandments a number of years ago and was blown away with his rich voice.


Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of historical western, Dreams of Gold. Website: http://www.lindacarroll-bradd.com/

Want: Val Kilmer has a bad boy quality that shines through his portrayal of this fatally ill outlaw.

Wed: Since seeing his first kid roles in Disney movies, I’ve had a soft spot for Kurt Russell. In a western role, he makes my knees wobble.

Waste: If Kevin Costner would put in the time to learn the dialects of the roles he performs, he might be an actor I’d give more credibility.


Christine Elaine Black, author of A Rose for Lancaster  !!!Special price for November: 99 cents!!! Website/Blog http://christineelaineblack.blogspot.ca/

Want: Val Kilmer is a bad boy and his mischievous grin makes a girl want to wipe the smile off his face…. at least for a few hours. Definitely want some time alone to horse around with him dressed as Doc Holliday. 

Wed: Kurt Russell is the sweetest guy and pretty hot as Wyatt Earp. A little bit of Wild West with him and I’d be satisfied!!! 

Waste: I’ll pass on Kevin Costner, though he’s cute and it’s a shame to turn him down but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do when it comes to running a guy out of a saloon packed with hotties?


Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Old West guys would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Thanks for playing and be sure to enter the giveaway!
