Guest Blog: Wild Texas Rose by Jodi Thomas

WILD TEXAS ROSE is my 25th historical romance about Texas and I’m happy to say that I think readers will discover something new in this book that I’ve never seen done in a historical.  I love writing about groups of people and this time I have more than one romance going at once.  It was great fun to write and I lost a great deal of sleep because even after I turned off my computer I couldn’t turn off the story.  The characters were still dancing in my head. 

My husband also developed a strange habit of saying, “All right, all you people, get out of this bed.  We’ve got to get some sleep.”

In WILD TEXAS ROSE, Rose McMurray is one of those wonderful people who is always organized.  I hated her and loved her instantly when she walked off the pages of TALL, DARK AND TEXAN as a little girl and I understood her when she stepped into this book. 

Duncan, on the other hand, lives his life in the moment.  Never planning.  Never realizing what he truly needs.  At the wedding of Rose’s best friend, they discover a plot that could get many people killed and join forces with others to fight.

I had a great time writing WILD TEXAS ROSE.  Of course I love a good love story and this book is packed with three.  I also like watching the couples fall in love in different ways because love never comes in quite the same way to anyone.  I think this story is tender and I promise it will keep you laughing.  No one in the book is perfect, but they all do the best they can.

Thanks for reading,

Jodi Thomas
