Marshal of Hel Dorado by Heather Long
Have you read Heather’s Fevered Hearts series yet? Marchal of Hel Dorado is the first in the series. If you enjoy cowboy romance, this is a must read for you! Marshal of Hel Dorado, Book 1 of 7 in the Fevered Hearts Series
This flashback guest blog from 2011 is by my longtime friend and one of my favorite writers, Heather Long. I know you’ll enjoy it!
First let me thank Lisa for letting me show up to share my hot guy with a gun this week. Last month, I released Marshal of Hel Dorado in eBook, this month it’s available in print. Marshal of Hel Dorado is the first book in my new Fevered Hearts series that follows the lives and loves of two families: the Kanes of Dorado and survivors of the spirit fever.
The great thing about Marshal of Hel Dorado is it began with the simple idea of telling a story without modern conveniences like cell phones, cars or the Internet. I reached back into Texas history because cowboys are always hot, right? And what better leading man would you want than a Marshal? Needless to say, this little idea mushroomed into something much larger.
Sam Kane is the eldest son and the Marshal of Hel Dorado. He focuses his attention on keeping his town safe and quiet. The son of Jebediah Kane, a powerful local rancher, Sam appreciates the good life, but understands you have to work your ass off to get it.
When a group of thieves pick his town to rob, Sam discovers there’s more to his world than drunken cowhands, stingy town businessmen and fussy churchwomen.
To protect his fiery haired prisoner, Sam will have to be ready to take on the town, the posse, the army and her brothers.
Think he’s up for the challenge?
The trading card says it all. But the best part of telling Sam and Scarlett’s story was introducing readers to their families. To Sam’s brothers: Micah, Jason and Kid and Scarlett’s brothers: Wyatt, Cody, Rudy, Buck, Noah, Jimmy and Ike.
