Starting a new series is always anxiety-producing; you hope the first book sells well in order to anchor the rest of the series. As luck would have it, The Outcast, the first in the Men of Pride County series earned a 4.5 and was an RT Top Pick for February. Since then, its gone into a second printing!

Then you have to worry if youve planted enough interest in the secondary characters to pique reader curiosity. Wonder no more

THE OUTSIDER is Dodges story, followed in November by Nobles in THE REBEL. Next year, theres Deacon and Hamilton Dodge, a brash Northern banker in a staunch, Southern, post-Civil War town who is determined to save those who dont want his help. Not being able to resist an underdog, hes immediately drawn to the fiercely flirtatious Starla Fairfax, who returns to Pride on a cloud of mystery. Confident hes the answer to all her problems and that shell be the answer to all his dreams, he offers a solution that pulls them both into unexpected danger. She wont share her secrets, but Hamilton must find a way to reach her guarded heart in time to save them both from the darkness of her past, and the perils of the present.

What a book! What a story! What a man! is what RT says of THE OUTSIDER. The type of hero women dream about, and Mrs. Wests most realistic (and romantic) character to date, is what other reviewers have said about Dodge, gorgeously depicted on the Man Alone cover.
