Fall is on the way....
... and I have a LOT of news for you! I know many of you have been waiting for the promised reissue of three of my older books, and we finally have firm publication dates: MONTANA WOMAN, originally published in 1990, is scheduled for mid-September 2018; EMBERS OF THE HEART, also from 1990, is coming in mid-October 2018; and SONG OF THE WOLF, from 1992, will be available around the first week in January, 2019! 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 looking forward to the reissue of this emotional story that depicts the true history our Native Americans. Aren't these new covers from Lisa Messegee at The Wriite Designers great?
Speaking of covers -- I just received the cover copy for LOGANS LADY, scheduled by Sourcebooks for a March 26, 2019 release -- but still am not allowed to show you the cover itself (which my Sourcebooks editor describes as a beautiful, epic mix of romantic emotion and western action")! The "official" description of the book:
Two worlds in conflict -- Two hearts intertwined -- One love worth fighting for
I have finished my short story for the Sourcebooks Christmas anthology coming in October 2019. The anthology doesn't have a title yet, but my story is called CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE. It's 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.
I am planning to have my 1995 novel CHASE THE SUN reissued next year, hopefully between LOGANS LADY and CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE. Check back for more information on that!
In progress right now: the first of three "Outlaw Trail" books for Sourcebooks! 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, 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!
When that book is finished, it's 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!
