This Week's Guest: Beth Williamson

This week I'm happy to announce one of my favorite authors, especially for her Historical Western Romances, as our guest of the week:


You can’t say cowboys without thinking of Beth Williamson. She likes ‘em hard, tall, and packing. Read her work and discover for yourself how hot and dangerous a cowboy can be.
Beth is the author of more than fifteen novels and novellas with Samhain Publishing, Loose Id, and Liquid Silver Books, with many more in the works for the coming years.

Beth lives just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and two sons. Born and raised in New York, she holds a B.F.A. in writing from New York University. She spends her days as a technical writer, and her nights immersed in writing hot romances for her readers.


Beth's latest release, Devils on Horseback: Nate, came out last month, September 25 2007, and is the start of another great Historical Western Romance series for her.


Book 1 of the Devils on Horseback series

Nate Marchand grew up as the only son of the town drunk. As a Confederate soldier, he found that order in the chaos was the only thing that kept him sane. Numbers, information, keeping everything in its proper place became second nature. The chaos of the war and its aftermath sent him into a rigid state that he couldn’t seem to overcome.

He and his friends, nicknamed Devils on Horseback, leave behind the aftermath of war to start fresh in the west. Their new business venture flounders and desperation drives them to take whatever work they can.

The Devils are hired to remove the Taggert family from land claimed by Samuel O’Shea, the largest landowner in Grayton, Texas. When he meets Elisa Taggert, his entire world shifts beneath him. Attracted, bewildered, and off-kilter, Nate ignores his conscience in favor of his wallet.

The simple task of removing a woman, a boy, and an old man, along with a small herd of cattle, resembles a Medieval siege. Nate wrestles with what he knows is right with what he must do. Will his love for Elisa overcome his need for survival?


Also, I can't help but mention Beth's next release, Branded, set to come out next month, November 6, 2007. This novella is part of an anthology with authors Melissa Schroeder and Rebecca Goings.

A marriage of convenience shows a determined rancher and a stubborn woman what it means to be branded.

Part of the Leather and Lace series

When a clause in his grandfather’s will forces Rafe Sinclair to marry or else lose his ranch, he sets his sights on what he thinks is a safe choice—his neighbor Emma Radcliff.

Emma has never wanted anything other than to work her family’s horse ranch. But when her father forces her to marry Rafe, she does everything in her power to make the handsome rancher regret his choice of brides.

They say oil and water don’t mix, but in Emma’s and Rafe’s case, it does—and the result is fire. When Emma refuses to consummate the marriage, Rafe sets out to prove that marriage him is the best thing that’s ever happened to her.


Be sure to stop by everyday this week as we spotlight Beth Williamson and her latest release, Devils on Horseback: Nate.
