"Bittner's sequel to CAPTURE MY HEART - the saga of Two Wolves and his wife, Claire - brings the scenery and time to life as our heroes are caught in the horrors of the American Indian Wars. Bittner's fans will discover another powerfully told story, brimming over with historical events and Native American culture that is as thought provoking and dramatic as it is romantic. The Queen of Western Romance doesn't disappoint with another heartfelt, compassionate and exciting story of a man torn between two lives and the woman who stands by him with a love that defies hatred and injustice." --Kathe Robin, Romantic Times

     Claire Matthews is carrying the child of Cheyenne half-breed, Two Wolves, who promised in marriage to live his life in the white world under the name his white mother gave him – Peter James Matthews. Peter is educated and can conduct himself as white; however, Claire understands that deep in his heart, her husband is very Indian.

      In the prequel to this story (CAPTURE MY HEART), it was the “Indian” Two Wolves, a scout for the U. S. Army, who rescued Claire from a fate worse than death and who saved her life more than once in a flight from those who would harm them. Now, as a married couple running a supply business near Fort Collins, Colorado, a restless hatred from Colorado citizens and the Colorado Militia toward the Cheyenne threatens to tear Peter and Claire apart.

     Peter adores and respects Claire’s strength in standing up for the man she loves against those who would condemn her for loving an Indian. He has promised Claire always to be by her side and help her run their business … until the United States Army asks him to accept another scouting mission. Because he thinks it will help the Cheyenne, Peter agrees, but events that follow challenge his promises to Claire.

     When Peter comes across the aftermath of the horrible Sand Creek Massacre committed the by Colorado Militia and their leader, Colonel John Chivington, his Cheyenne blood rises to the surface, and he is once again Two Wolves, a warrior who wants revenge.

      Will Two Wolves’s rage be stronger than his love for Claire and their unborn child? Only true love can hold these two together against a land torn by the changes of a growing West. Power, passion, true history and romance all make this story another winner for “The Queen of Western Romance,” Rosanne Bittner.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT A WARRIOR'S PROMISE:

     "To love a story you have to crawl into it and live along with the characters. This is what happens anytime I read one of Rosanne's books. What an amazing book." -- Kim, via Amazon.com

     "Once again the Queen of Western Romance Rosanne Bittner gives her readers a very vivid History lesson. Mrs Bittner has a gift pulling her readers into a book and one feels as if she/he are actually standing there with the characters experiencing the same emotions and feelings they are. . . . I dearly loved this continuation of Claire and Two Wolves' story. I would most certainly love to see a third book as Claire and Two Wolves go on and make a life in the changing West. Well done once again Rosanne Bittner A Warrior’s Promise was all I hoped and more!!!" -- Glenda Kinard

     "A WARRIOR'S PROMISE was an exceptional book detailing the horror and heartache that happened at Sand Creek and the months that followed. . . . . [This] sequel to CAPTURE MY HEARTt continues the story of Claire and Two Wolves, and their courage to live one way of life, while protecting another. A love story which will grab the readers heartstrings. . . which equally rivals her epic Savage Destiny Series." Tonya Lucas

A WARRIOR'S PROMISE coverCAPTURE MY HEART       Finally, warm weather is here! Time for deck reading, beach reading, front porch reading, vacation reading, and just plain catching up on your reading! After you have finished CAPTURE MY HEART and A WARRIOR'S PROMISE, you are in for another treat -- Amazon will be reissuing three of my most popular older titles this summer! Coming soon in trade paperback and ebook formats, with brand-new covers: MONTANA WOMAN (originally published in 1990), EMBERS OF THE HEART (also from 1990), and SONG OF THE WOLF (from 1992)! SONG OF THE WOLF was one of my biggest sellers when first published, and many of my readers are eagerly looking forward to the reissue of that one!

        If you are new to my writing -- or even if you want to replace old favorites -- please see my Books in Print page for a complete list of all my books, with most recent covers, publication histories, and Amazon.com ordering links. If you prefer the convenience of e-books, check out my E-books List, where you will find ordering links for electronic versions of my books in several different e-book formats. I'm sure you'll find enough new- to- you titles and old favorites to keep you reading until the next brand-new Bittner book comes out next spring!

       I'm talking, of course, about LOGAN'S LADY. I have to tell you, I am in love with Logan! The hero and heroine are so different that it makes for some great conflict and wonderful banter. Elizabeth Bennett, a high-born English woman, ends up stranded in Abilene, Kansas, her dreams of investing in the American West shattered, and all her valuables stolen. She is rescued by a rough-and-tumble bounty hunter named Logan Best. These two are both strong-willed and opinionated and don’t get along at all at first. But eventually, the princess and the cowboy will realize they had better learn to overcome their differences because try as they might, they can’t ignore the feelings they begin to have for each other! I can't wait to find out what kind of cover treatment it will get. I am hoping to get another Jon Paul cover similar to my Outlaw books. Logan Best and Lady Elizabeth Bennett truly deserve a gorgeous, dramatic cover!

PARADISE VALLEY cover       More exciting news for 2019: I'll be contributing another brand- new story to a Christmas anthology from Sourcebooks! Many of you who read my 2013 book PARADISE VALLEY have asked for more about Sage and Maggie and the baby Maggie is carrying -- the baby whom Sage promised ot love as his own even though this little one was fathered by another man. The story will be called CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE. Accepting the baby proves to be more difficult than Sage figured, plus there will be some big problems on his huge ranch called PARADISE VALLEY - thus the title, CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE! You will love this beautiful story, to be published October 2019! Meanwhile, if you haven't read PARADISE VALLEY -- see below for links to details and ordering information!

       And finally -- I've just sold 3 more books (yet to be written) to Sourcebooks - all set against the Outlaw Trail! Each book will be a single title with new hero and heroine, but each story will touch on other characters I've written about who "visited" the Outlaw Trail, including Jake Harkner! I am going to have so much fun writing these books, and I guarantee, you are going to have as much fun reading them and anticipating which old friends you will be meeting up with again! I can't wait to get started!

       Meanwhile, my readers are loving THE LAST OUTLAW, the fourth book in my Outlaw Hearts series! Back when my Sourcebooks editor first read the manuscript, she told me, "This book is so strong! It was emotional and moving and epic - what a beautiful story!" I am excited that reviewers and, most importantly, my readers, agree with her!

       It doesn't get any better than that for a writer! I am so proud of this one. Proud of Jake. Unbelievable growth. A face-off with his ugly childhood. Such a true hero in this one (something he would never admit himself!). The story involves Peter and Jeff again, and Gretta MacBain from LOVE'S SWEET REVENGE -- big time! And a whole new level of love and trust between Jake and Randy; their relationship is more beautiful than ever. A real tear-jerker ending -- in a good way! I'm so happy to hear that you, my readers, are thoroughly enjoying the fourth book in the Harkner family saga -- through 37 years and 66 completed novels, YOU are the ones who have kept me going! (Note: Please click on any of the covers below for more information about that book, or see my Outlaw Hearts Series page!)

       And don't forget my "Jake" story in a Christmas anthology called CHRISTMAS IN A COWBOY'S ARMS (you'll see the cover for that below). My Harkner family Christmas story, A CHICK- A- DEE CHRISTMAS, shows a softer side of Jake, and will truly round out the series. A CHICK- A- DEE CHRISTMAS is a very sweet 150 - page story involving Jake's little granddaughter Sadie Mae. Through an "unexpected character" (ie, one that I didn't plan but who just "showed up" as I was writing), Jake is filled with the spirit of forgiveness and joy, the celebration of the birth of Christ, and the beauty of Christmas giving.

Rosanne and faithful reader Chet Cripe       I'm hearing from more and more men who enjoy my books, like Chester "Chet" Cripe, one of my faithful long-time readers.

Rosanne with her replica Colt .45

A Colt .45, much like the gun my heroes use - and my own .30-.30 rifle. The Colt is surprisingly heavy and requires a strong hand and arm to draw, cock and fire in one swift movement. That would take a LOT of practice!
