person who

gets the most page views per month, I instituted the Top Chatter Award.

must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author’s). There can be
up to three winners.

This month’s winner’s are:

Among her 48 writing awards, Adrienne has earned the Best Historical Romance of the Year. When she’s not writing, she’s mentoring aspiring authors, several of whom have become #1 bestsellers on Amazon.

Interview with Adrienne deWolfe

Why did you write this book?
William Cassidy wasn’t supposed to be hero material.  He was a gunslinger, wanted by every lawman in the West.  When I first envisioned my heroine, a pistol-packing Pinkerton with fiery hair and an even hotter temper, I planned to make “Coyote Cass” the villain of her story.  But Cass wasn’t happy with my plot to bury him at Boot Hill. 
“Aw, c’mon, Wolfie,” he kept whispering in my ear, “I’m not so bad.  I’m funny!  How many villains do you know, who ride get-away horses named Jelli and Pancake?  And what about that time I poured moonshine into my sweetheart’s pie, so she could win the county bake-off?  I’m adorable!  Give me a book and a woman of my own!”
The next thing I knew, I was doing something crazy:  rewriting the ebook version of a previously published paperback, so I could star Cass and Sadie in their own series of Western Whodunits, Lady Law & The Gunslinger.  
What is your favorite genre to read?
Anything that explores the mystical side of nature. Right now, four Ted Andrews books are stacked on my desk. Ted wrote about the symbolism of plants and animals to Native Americans. His book, Animal Speak, stokes my imagination because I love to create “furry pranksters” as humor devices. For instance, in Devil in Texas, a rascally raccoon, named Vanderbilt Varmint, steals a lot more than scenes!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That’s a tough call. I love witty, rapid-fire dialogue that makes me laugh. The first 2 characters who come to mind are Raistlin Majere (evil mage) and Tasselhoff Burrfoot (happy-go-lucky Kender / Halfling) from the Dragonlance Series.  I read those books many, many years ago, and yet today, when I picture those two characters “sparring” with words, I have to smile. When I write, I want to create characters that are just as memorable to my readers.  
What are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming months?
I just completed Dance to the Devil’s Tune, the sequel to Devil in Texas.  Now I’m trying to decide where to set Devil Plays with Fire (Book 3 in Lady Law & The Gunslinger.) I was thinking of throwing a dart at a map – because that worked so well for Book 1. Devil in Texas is set primarily in Lampasas. It’s a small town about 90 miles north of Austin (where I live.) Lampasas is rich in Wild West history and yet, until I threw my dart, I’d never heard of Lampasas, much less its reputation as the 19th Century “Saratoga of the South!”
Please tell us about your latest book.
Pinkerton Agent Sadie Michelson poses as a casino singer to investigate a Texas Senator. Before she can cozy up to her quarry, she must get past his bodyguard, William Cassidy, her long-lost lover.
An outlaw seeking redemption, Cass was lured to Texas by the promise of a Ranger badge. But he hasn’t forgotten the sassy siren, who toyed with his heart. When Sadie proposes a truce, Cass suspects she’s hiding something.
With assassins dogging their heels, Cass and Sadie uncover a murder conspiracy in the senate.  To stay alive, they must do the one thing they’re dead set against: trust each other.

Texas Wildcat 
Note from Adrienne deWolfe: Still pining for a date this weekend? No problem.
Sheep rancher Bailey McShane, the (aptly named) Texas Wildcat from Adrienne deWolfe’s
bestselling Western Historical Romance, is here to share her secrets for catching
a mate!
Howdy, gals! Bailey here.
Now don’t you be moping around the homestead ’cause some clueless
male didn’t ask you to a fandango. The week’s not over yet! I got plenty of experience
roping stud ponies – ‘specially the two-legged kind. So listen up.
Prissy Missies would have you believe that a real lady puts on
lacy pink frou-frou and totters around on stilts. Hogwash. No man worth having wants
his woman trussed up in a corset. Men like a gal who WIGGLES when she walks. You
ever see a ewe in a brassiere?
I rest my case!
Now once you get the ram’s . . . er, I mean, the man’s attention,
don’t gush and giggle every time the fool opens his mouth. Teach that randy rascal
some respect! When Hank Rotterdam and his twin sons were after my ranch, here’s
how I set those cusses straight:
Hank:
“Aw, c’mon, Bailey. Why don’t you forget about Nick and
marry Nate? Shoot, they look just the same. And they got the same equipment, if
you know what I mean.”
Me:
“I’ll keep that in mind, when I’m ready to raise hogs.”
You see that? The old skirt-chaser was so floored, he didn’t
even know which way was up!
Now here’s a sparkin’ tip for ya’ll. Girly punch and cucumber
sandwiches ain’t gonna fire up your man’s blood! You want some bull pawing the sod
to give your skirts a whirl? Then I got one word for you, amigas:
MOONSHINE.
Serve it up by the barrel.
Here’s how my 100 percent
all-beef male likes to tattle on me:
Little Miss Bo Peep was so sure of herself,
sitting over there with that mischievous smirk and that curl coiling so jauntily
on her forehead. Besides, how powerful could the moonshine be? Bailey had tossed
back a belt without batting an eye.
Zack tossed back his own shot and choked.
Fire burned a path from his gullet to his gut. He was half-convinced his ears started
smoking. It was all he could do not to cough and sputter as the busthead went down.
Bailey thumped him helpfully between
the shoulder blades. “Good stuff, eh?”
He wheezed. “You sure there’s no
rat poison in this?”
Yee-haw! Take it from me, gals. Tarantula juice gets the job
done! After a coupla swigs, Zack started stamping and pawing so hard, he scooped
me up in his arms, hauled me up a flight of stairs and . . .
Oops! Look at the time! Gotta mozy on down to the barn to get
those merino sheep sheared.
But before I go, I’ll leave you with one final tip. And this
one’s worth its weight in chocolate, if you know what I mean.
Do you want a man to kiss you tonight? I’m not talking about
some namby-pamby buss on the cheek. I’m talking about a REAL man, grabbing a REAL
woman, and kissing the livin’ daylights outta her.
(Yeah, I figured you’d like that.)
Well, pay attention now. ‘Cause here’s how it’s done.
Wild Texas Nights 
Texas
Wildcat
By Adrienne deWolfe
When the beautiful, hot-tempered Bailey McShane bursts into the
cattlemen’s saloon, waving her shotgun and accusing the cowboys of theft, simmering
tempers start to boil.
Bailey wants restitution for the fence posts that some low-down
cowpokes burned to steal precious water from her land.
No self-respecting cattleman would be caught dead siding with
a sheep rancher, like Bailey–and yet Zack Rawlins, the youngest, elected president
of the Cattlemen’s Association, can’t resist this pint-sized wildcat with the big
blue eyes.
Adrienne DeWolfe
With drought-stricken Bandera County
on the brink of range war, Zack faces political suicide if he can’t find a way to
mend fences between Bailey and his cattle-ranching neighbors. But what’s a cowboy
to do with an unpredictable woman who refuses to be tamed?
