Katie Lane’s TROUBLE IN TEXAS blog tour!
What do you feel makes cowboys and Texas so enduring to readers?
KATIE: Cowboys are alpha men who are honest and hard working. Texas is filled with small towns that take us back to a simpler life that’s far removed from the hustle and bustle of big cities.
How hard is it to write a series? and how many will be in this series?
KATIE: The easy part is that you have most of the characters already. The hard part is keeping the characters fresh and interesting. Bringing in Miss Hattie’s Henhouse was my way of keeping things fresh in the Deep in the Heart of Texas series. I didn’t really set out to write a series. I just had this idea about a woman searching for her long-lost twin sister. But once I finished Going Cowboy Crazy, I realized that I had a lot of ideas that might work for other books. Fortunately, people fell in love with Bramble and I’m getting my opportunity to write those stories. As of now, there will be seven books in the series. Beau’s story, Flirting with Texas, will be out in July 2013. Brianne’s story will be next. And finally, Beckett’s. After that, who knows :o)
List five words to describe your writing style?
KATIE: Fun. Sexy. Zany. Character-driven. (Does a hyphenated word count as two?)
Thank you, Katie,for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us and our readers today! What a pleasure to have you with us again.

THERE’S A FOX IN THE HENHOUSE
Inheriting the most notorious house of ill repute in Texas can spell trouble for a girl’s reputation . . . especially when she’s Elizabeth Murphy, Bramble’s prim and proper librarian. Yet when she discovers a buck-naked cowboy handcuffed to a four-poster bed, she forgets all about the town gossips. Elizabeth has sworn off men, but the stranger’s kisses melt her resolve faster than ice cream on a hot summer day.
Waking up in Miss Hattie’s Henhouse isn’t how Brant Cates reckoned on getting to the bottom of his great-granddaddy’s murder. The plan was to solve the centuries-old crime, then get the heck out of Dodge. But after meeting Elizabeth and discovering that the buttoned-up beauty is a sexy siren in disguise, he just can’t pull himself away.
Now Brant needs Elizabeth to finally put his past to rest, but is she willing to risk her future on Bramble’s newest bad boy?
About Katie Lane:
Katie Lane’s interest in romance was sparked in high school in the backseat of a ’65 Mustang-okay, so maybe it wasn’t romance as much as raging teenage hormones. Still, coupled with a wild imagination, those make-out sessions inspired many a steamy storyline along with a strong belief that true love does prevail. Katie lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the owner of that Mustang and would love to hear from her readers.
