Happy February, Everyone!
Seems like just yesterday I was showing you the cover for LOGAN'S LADY and we were all sighing because it was such a very long time to wait for that late March 2019 release date -- and now, it's almost here! Plus, I have some GREAT NEWS! Not only are we looking forward to LOGAN'S LADY on March 26, but I have just learned that my short Christmas story CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE, in the anthology LONGING FOR A COWBOY CHRISTMAS, will be published in September of this year - AND MY FIRST "OUTLAW TRAIL" story, RIDE THE HIGH LONESOME, will be published in NOVEMBER THIS YEAR! After a long wait since my last original publication (Book #4 of my Outlaw Hearts series) I will have TWO FULL NOVELS published in 2019 PLUS the Christmas story. Yay! No cover yet for Outlaw Trail book, but you can see the new cover for the Christmas anthology below and can pre-order LONGING FOR A COWBOY CHRISTMAS through Amazon. And of course you can pre-order LOGAN'S LADY!
Thank you for waiting so patiently for the promised reissue of three of my older books, particularly when the publication dates kept shifting. SONG OF THE WOLF, MONTANA WOMAN, and EMBERS OF THE HEART are now all available from Amazon.com! SONG OF THE WOLF was one of my biggest sellers and was nominated for a RITA award, the highest award given by Romance Writers of America. Many of my readers are delighted to see the reissue of this emotional story that depicts the true history our Native Americans. Aren't these new covers from Lisa Messegee at The Write Designers great?
My short story CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE, in the Sourcebooks Christmas anthology LONGING FOR A COWBOY CHRISTMAS, will be released on 24 September, and you can already pre-order on Amazon.com! CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE is about Sage and Maggie (Tucker) Lightfoot and the Paradise Valley ranch (from my book PARADISE VALLEY). That story ended with Maggie carrying a child whose father is unknown. The baby is the product of something that happened to Maggie in PARADISE VALLEY, and CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE will satisfy all those readers who want to know what happened with that baby. It has a beautiful miracle ending that is perfect for a Christmas story.
HUGE NEWS: my first of three "Men of the Outlaw Trail" stories. RIDE THE HIGH LONESOME, will be available on 26 November 2019!!!! I am so excited to have two major novels published in the same year, and hope to have an actual cover for you soon! Each book will be a single title with new hero and heroine, with each story touching on other characters I've written about who "visited" the Outlaw Trail!
RIDE THE HIGH LONESOME is so named because of how huge outlaw trail country is -- the big, BIG country of western Wyoming. The story opens with Kate Winters lost and alone in western Wyoming after an Indian attack on her wagon train. She comes upon a gang of men who are putting a noose around a man's neck. Because she's in outlaw country, Kate is afraid to let the men see her, so she hides and watches in horror as the man is hanged and his hangmen ride off with the dead man's cattle and pack horse.
His saddle horse has been left behind, and Kate desperately needs the horse and the weapons and supplies packed on it. She comes out from hiding and runs down to take the horse, but she notices the hanged man's feet are moving! He's still alive! She has no choice but to do the right thing. She cuts him down, having no idea if he's good or bad.
Is he dangerous? Did he deserve to die? Kate's actions lead to an unforgettable love story set against the magnificent "high and lonesome" outlaw country along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, where lawmen never go, and where no stranger can be trusted. And watch for a "cameo" appearance by Jake Harkner (from my Outlaw Hearts series) in this story!
I have already begun the second Outlaw Trail book. I'm calling it THE LAWLESS BREED. The story begins with the heroine, Ashley, coming home to find her mother murdered. She runs outside to saddle a horse to ride into town and report the murder and - low and behold - she sees someone riding up the path to her house. She freezes in place, realizing she doesnt have any kind of weapon with her. Is the man riding toward her the murderer?
When he gets closer, she realizes, in near shock, that the rider is Nick, a man she hasnt seen for five years a man she once loved but who rode out of her life after a terrible tragedy that tore them apart. Shes heard that after taking part in the Civil War, this man turned to an outlaw life. He might even be wanted. She thought she would never see him again, yet here he is, riding right back into her life at this devastating, confusing moment. And then what happens? Why has Nick ridden back into Ashley's life? These two will collide in more ways than one, but Ashley will find a way to tame him and to make sure he never rides out of her life again. I am having 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!
Then, maybe it'll be back to my first big contemporary story an Indian/White romance in true Bittner style! I have lived with this story and its characters since the 80s, believe it or not! Its inspirational, culture clash (modern white vs. Native American culture), suspense, murder mystery, hot sex, a hero and heroine who both come with a lot of baggage that could get in the way of their love for each other a love neither of them wants but cant fight. It involves an abusive ex-husband, a dead ex-wife, the American Indian Movement, and embezzlement. There are also an Ecumenical preacher, the D.A.R, and problems on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, a heroine afraid to love again, and a hero who cant let go of why and how his late wife died. And throughout the story, although it's set in todays time, Native American mysticism and ancient culture give the story the feel of a story taking place in the 1800s.
Readers will fall in love with hero, Ben (Gray Wolf) Colter, a Lakota Sioux, and heroine, Carmen Grace, blond, blue eyes, from New England, and a Daughter of the American Revolution. These two are at far ends of the spectrum of life in looks and heritage an unlikely relationship that explodes into passion, intrigue, suspense, and attempted assassination! This is my first contemporary, and Im nervous about it, but Ive wanted to write this story for 30 years. Im keeping the title to myself for a little bit longer!
Meanwhile, THANK YOU for your wonderful feedback on CAPTURE MY HEART and its sequel, A WARRIOR'S PROMISE! One of my readers wrote, "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." (Kim, via Amazon.com). I am so happy that you are enjoying these two books. (If you haven't read them yet and would like more information, please click here!)
My readers are still 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!
I am so proud of this one. Proud of Jake. Unbelievable growth. A face-off with his ugly childhood. Such a true hero (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 Harkner family saga! (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 above). 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.

I'm hearing from more and more men who enjoy my books, like Chester "Chet" Cripe, one of my faithful long-time readers. Chet was a member of the 45th Division of the Army Infantry and was Sergeant of the 4th Platoon. He served on Heartbreak Ridge, Sandbag Castle and Christmas Hill. The Outlaw Hearts Series in particular are packed with action, western history, and solid family values as well as heart- felt romance. Yes, "real" men really DO enjoy reading my books -- and if you don't believe it, ask this Korean War Veteran!

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!
