Howdy, Ginger. Thanks for having me over for a visit. It’s a pleasure to be with you. I’d like to tell you and your readers about my new book, Dashing Druid. Recently published in Kindle format on amazon.com, this is the second volume in my Texas Druids trilogy.
First, let me say I firmly believe there are people who possess extrasensory abilities. Why? Because I have experienced prophetic dreams and premonitions myself, real enough to scare me a couple times.
Since I know psychics live among us, and I’m pretty sure they existed in ages past, doesn’t it make sense that such gifted folks may also have lived in the Old West? They do in my imagination. Meet the Devlins, three psychically gifted siblings. Descended from legendary Irish Druids, their hidden talents lead them across prairies and mountains, into the land of cowboys and Indians, with consequences not even a Druid seer could predict.
Darlin’ Druid, the first book in this unique series, drew wonderful reader reviews. Now the saga continues in book two. This western romance stars Tye Devlin, eldest of the three adventurers. Tye is a sensitive, an empath in modern terms. He “feels” other’s emotions. Over time, he has erected mental barriers to block out most of the “racket” in order to save his sanity, but when he meets Texas cowgirl Lil Crawford, her troubled feelings easily breach those barriers.
Unlucky in love, Lil sees herself as a gangly old maid. She guards her bruised heart behind a tough façade, working alongside her father’s cowhands. When a handsome stranger with an Irish brogue calls her beautiful, she thinks he’s mocking her. Learning he’s the brother of the woman who wed her lost love, Lil tries to put Devlin out of her mind, yet she can’t help wishing such a man might truly find her beautiful.
Tye Devlin’s flashing smile conceals a painful burden. A failed prospector and silver miner, he’s left with nothing but guilt over a friend’s death and nightmarish memories of a mine cave-in. Seeking peace, he’s come to visit his sister and her husband on their Texas ranch. They convince him to remain with them, and while learning to ride and rope, Tye becomes fascinated by Lil Crawford. The daughter of a neighboring rancher, the part Cherokee beauty attracts him with her golden skin, dark flashing eyes and slim, feminine curves, but it’s her bravery and hidden sorrows that capture his heart. He realizes they’re kindred spirits. However, her parents regard him as a no-good Irish Yankee. Not a promising start for their romance!
Set against a backdrop of Texas ranch life, an iconic cattle drive, and feuding families, this action packed story delves into Tye's painful empathic ability and the impact it has upon his life and those he loves. As he and Lil struggle to survive raging rivers, hostile Indians and a vicious enemy, they must face their personal demons and decide if love is worth the consequences. Explosive surprises will determine their fate.
