Meet the Cousins of The Fortunes of Texas: Cowboy Country
Happy New Year to all of our wonderful readers! The Harlequin Special Edition team is thrilled to invite you back to the small Texas town of Horseback Hollow and into the home of the Fortune Jones family, local ranchers who recently found themselves linked to the illustrious Fortunes of Texas and Atlanta. But there are even more long-lost relatives waiting in the wings. The British are coming to Horseback Hollow!
It’s not just the Fortunes coming to town, though. Gentrification has arrived in the form of Cowboy Country USA, a Western-themed amusement park that is scheduled to open in the spring on the outskirts of town. Will the real cowboys and ranchers be able to stand up to this Goliath? And just what is a “real” cowboy, anyway?
When we last visited Horseback Hollow—in New York Times bestselling author Allison Leigh’s FORTUNE’S PRINCE, the final volume in the Welcome to Horseback Hollow series—British royal Amelia Fortune Chesterfield and cowboy Quinn Drummond got engaged. In Cowboy Country, we will get to know Amelia’s siblings—especially now that she and Quinn are married and expecting their first baby! Jensen, Brodie and Oliver will all make the journey from England to Texas. When these buttoned-up Brits experience culture shock—and cowgirls!—will they hightail it back to the London fog or stake their claim for the women they’ve fallen for?
The last single Fortune Jones kids will meet their matches, too! When sexy Cisco Mendoza needs to find his own Fortune to help him with a business venture, innocent Delaney offers to help. You know what they say about “all work and no play…” And when the amusement park finally opens, stubbornly single cowboy Galen Fortune Jones agrees to play husband onstage to Aurora McElroy four times a day. But when circumstance forces them to play house, he discovers some very real feelings for his make-believe bride.
We’re also excited about the new look for the Special Edition covers, launching with our January 2015 books. Both contemporary and classic, they feature the return of the look you love. We love them and hope you will, too.
You won’t want to miss a single installment of The Fortunes of Texas: Cowboy Country, galloping out of the gate in January 2015 with A ROYAL FORTUNE by USA TODAY bestselling author Judy Duarte. We hope you’ll join us for every round of this rodeo
About A Royal Fortune:
They go together like…chutney and barbecue. High tea and hot sauce. You couldn’t come up with a more unlikely twosome than Jensen Fortune Chesterfield and Amber Rogers. So when the paparazzi catch the Fortune heir in a lip-lock with the free-spirited rodeo rider, Horseback Hollow goes wild. What is really going on here?
Princes only fall for commoners in fairy tales, but who could blame Amber for crushing on Jensen? The sweet cowgirl can see the bighearted man beneath that buttoned-up Brit. Could it be that the simple life of the Hollow is exactly what Jensen needs? If only she can find a way to get him to see how she truly feels…and rope this aristocrat for keeps!
