SYNOPSIS:
Matt Landry is fed up with politics and his life in Washington as a delegate. So he returns to Wyoming Territory to marry his fiancé Adrian Driscoll, an elegant young woman he met during a brief courtship in Cheyenne. With Adrian as his bride, he intends to start his own spread, and have the family he’s always wanted.

But Matt has no idea that Adrian’s father King Driscoll, is a corrupt rancher, who has control of the entire cattle market in northern Wyoming; that Adrian’s brother Kirby is a twisted sadist who loves to inflict pain; and that King will stop at nothing, even murder, to stay in power. When Matt steps in to help a young widow, whose husband is murdered on King Driscoll’s orders, his life takes a completely different turn.

Now, Matt has to make a decision. Does he fight for what he believes in or does he turn the other way for the sake of his bride?

AUTHOR BIO:
I was born in the mountains of Northern California. My father was part Cherokee and worked on various cattle ranches and we all followed the rodeos. My mother was second generation Portuguese-American. It was a fairly big family, with five kids. Hard times made for a close-knit group.

After graduating high school at 16 and passing the exam for the University of California, Berkeley, I had to put education on hold to help out at home. A few years later, I passed the College Equivalency Exam, attended Peninsula University Law School in Mountain View, California, and practiced law for several years.

I now write full time, having sold 42 short stories, most of them Westerns and 17 Western novels published by Avalon Books in a five-year period. I’ve also notched screenwriter to my belt. I write everything, but focus mostly on westerns. I am a proud member of Western Writers of America.

My upcoming western film SHADOW ON THE MESA will be broadcast on the Hallmark Movie Channel by June of 2013. Produced by Larry Levinson Productions, it stars Kevin Sorbo, Wes Brown, Gail O’Grady, Greg Evigan, Shannon Lucio, Micah Alberti, Barry Corbin and Meredith Baxter. It previewed September 10, 2012 on Dish TV’s PixL Channel.

Disguised as a boy, Marly joins a handsome Texas Ranger in the hunt for a con man and they must bring the fugitive to justice before giving up the masquerade and giving in to their passion.

When Marly Landers is fooled by con man Charlie Meese, she’s determined to bring him to justice–even if it means dressing up as a boy and setting off across the plains to find him.

Texas Ranger Jase Strachan is also after Meese, for crimes committed in Texas. He joins forces with the young boy in a journey that takes them to Fortuna, where a murder interrupts their mission. Jase is duty bound to find the killer, no matter the cost.

Marly carries out her own investigation and comes to the aid of Amabelle Egan, the sister of one of the suspects. But appearances are deceiving, and Marly is mistaken for Amabelle’s suitor, making her a target for the killer. Not to mention, Charlie Meese is still out there.

Under the Texas stars, Marly and Jase are drawn together by circumstances beyond their control, yet fate plots to tear them apart. Will Marly finally get her man?

REVIEWS:

A rollicking adventure of romance and True Grit… This is an historical Western romance in a style that reminds me of Hemingway. Although the descriptions are colorful and accurate, there are no wasted words here as the characters are developed through dialogue and action. The old West comes to life! Highly recommended. Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7

Good old-fashioned historic western romance with a kick!
Alison Bruce does an excellent job on setting the scenes and customs of the old west. History, characterizations, and the long ride of the heroes of the story are convincing for the time. There is lots of action and gun-play as they work together on a case in Fortuna. … If you’re looking for a dish of the old west with a dash of romance and humor minus the raunch dressing, this book is for you. Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7

“Alison Bruce captures the Old West in a delightful, if improbable, mix of romance, cultures and characters with UNDER A TEXAS STAR” Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7 – Areletta Dawdy (4 stars)

Three years ago, Devin Grant traded the rodeo circuit for a cattle ranch. If someone told him, he would fall in love with a woman he’d never physically met, he’d think they were kicked too many times in the head by a bull. When Tasha’s brother is thrown from his horse, it was finally time to meet the sexy woman of his dreams and convince her, he was worth taking a chance on.

Can he convince her before she goes back to her boring life? Will she be able to overcome their age difference and her own insecurities?

AUTHOR BIO: Marie Rose Dufour grew up with writing always being part of her life. Her first story at thirteen
was about a girl walking through a mirror into another dimension. Living in a house where
romance novels were piled up in every corner and on every shelf, it was natural when she
bought her first romance with her allowance money. One day after discovering erotic romance,
she knew exactly the type of romance she wanted to write.

When not writing about super-sexy heroes, you can find her reading in her little house in
Rhode Island trying to block out the two curious cats always trying to get her attention and a
husband who swears he is her romantic inspiration!
