I'm beyond excited in my little corner of the world, because at long last I can make an announcement I've been going crazy over for the past few months.
I'd like to introduce you to the seven Hart brothers of Hartville, Texas.
Austin, Bowie, Travis, Houston, Crockett, Chisholm, and (my personal favorite) Hays.
These handsome men have captured the hearts and imaginations of seven historical romance authors and we're thrilled to share their stories with you in a new collection releasing with Barbour Publishers in December 2016 called Seven Brides for Seven Texans.
This collection is unlike anything I've read or written. It begins on January 1, 1874 when George Washington Hart, the patriarch of the Hart family, gives his seven grown and unmarried sons an ultimatum: either marry by December 31, 1874, or lose their inheritance portion of the 7 Heart Ranch.
Each story will go in chronological order, beginning with Hays (my hero!) on January 1st and will end with Bowie (Erica's hero) in December.
You guys, you're in for a treat!! All of the authors have been working closely with one another (via an active Facebook group!) to make this collection come alive. We have a detailed town map, list of secondary characters who appear in multiple stories, hero and heroine character sketches, timelines, backstories, and so much more. Everything, down to the wall coverings of the dining room at el Regalo (the Hart's mansion) have been included.
I'm so proud and honored to work with this group of authors. Everyone has taken the time to make this collection amazing and we can't wait to share it with you.

Our fearless leader, Erica, has been so much fun to work with. She has provided all of us with incredible resources to create our characters and storyworld.
If you'd like to preorder the collection, please go here. Unfortunately, the cover art isn't posted online yet, but it should be there shortly.
And!! To celebrate this announcement, I'd like to give away a copy of this collection!! I will mail it to the winner as soon as I get my advanced reader copies this coming year. Please fill out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win (U.S. residents only).
Your Turn: Have you ever read a collection like this? What do you think would be the most challenging part of writing this collection? We'll share more about Seven Brides for Seven Texans over the coming months here at CC&C, but what would you like to know now?
