WESTERN PULP: RANCHO DIABLO!

WESTERN PULP: RANCHO DIABLO!

IF YOU AREN'T READING THE GREAT NEW WESTERN SERIES, RANCO DIABLO, YET, THEN GET ON YOUR HORSE AND DO SO . . . THIS IS FUN, PULPY, STUFF WRITTEN BY THREE OF THE BEST WORKING (AND I DO MEAN WORKING) WRITERS IN THE FIELD . . .

RANCHO DIABLO #1: SHOOTER'S CROSS

Army Scout Sam Blaylock rode into the small Texas town of Shooter's Cross looking for deserters, not trouble. 

While up in the mountains, he discovered a wilderness plagued by nature and haunted by superstition, but one that he thought he could tame with his experience and strong back.

He didn't know he was going to have to kill to keep the home he planned for his family, but he didn't let that stop him. Sam had been looking for a home for his family for years. That search had been interrupted by the Civil War.

Now Sam is putting down roots, and not even the Devil himself can stand in the way.


RANCHO DIABLO #2: HANGROPE LAW

All Sam Blaylock wants to do is make a home for himself and his family on the Texas ranch known as Rancho Diablo. But then his son finds a wounded man alongside the Brazos River, and a deadly danger from the past soon threatens to ruin everything Sam is trying to build.

Only gunsmoke and hot lead will make things right and give the Blaylocks a fighting chance for the future!


RANCHO DIABLO #3: DEAD MAN'S REVENGE

Western action explodes as Sam Blaylock fights to save Rancho Diablo. Has a dead man returned to take revenge against Sam, or is there something more human at work?

Even the law doesn't seem to be on Sam's side as he takes on enemies that strike in the night.


RANCHO DIABLO #4: HELL ON WHEELS!

COMING SOON

The next book in the Rancho Diablo series will be out in June. This one deals with the relationship between Jenny Blaylock and gunhawk Mike Tucker. Tucker is in Shooter's Cross when two gunmen from his past call him out. Tucker deals with them violently and quickly, leaving them stretched out in the street.
Jenny Blaylock is in town shopping and sees the whole thing. Her children are with her. She knows she doesn't want her boys growing up idolizing someone like Tucker. She and Sam have a difference of opinion regarding Tucker staying with family at the ranch.

While Sam is away from the ranch on business, he leaves Tucker to protect the property. Jenny has a showdown of her own with Tucker and he ends up leaving.

In Shooter's Cross, Jenny and Miriam are attacked. Miriam is taken by a gang known for trafficking in young women across the border in Mexico. Marshal Tolliver sends for help but can't chase after the outlaws.

Knowing there's only one thing to do, Jenny goes back to the ranch, takes out a rifle, and shoots into the air. As she suspects, Tucker is still around to watch over the ranch. She knew he wouldn't leave until Sam got back because he'd given his word.

Jenny tells Tucker about Miriam. He says he'll go after her. She tells him that she is coming with him. Tucker doesn't bother to argue with her because he knows that would be foolish. Together, Jenny and Tucker take up the chase along the outlaw trail, and neither of them know how much they will be changed by their journey.

COMING SOON!
