One look at the baby girl, and there was no question Kade Ryland was the father. For three months, Kade had posed as Bree Winston's husband at the Fulbright Fertility Clinic, while the two FBI agents investigated a trail of illegal adoptions and surrogates. Nine months later, a baby was dropped at his feet—and Bree was nowhere to be found. Now Kade had to reopen a case that had gotten way too personal and find Bree—fast. But if the two of them had never been a real couple, were they ready to be parents?

Can you tell us about a real-life hero you’ve met?
DELORES: That'd be my husband, Colonel Thomas Fossen. A former Top Gun and all around cool guy, there's a little bit of him in all my fictional heroes.
DELORES: Several people including my late brother who had a quiet strength about him. Also, I know some real cowboys, and there's some of their hard working confidence mixed in. But I also gave Kade some kick-butt qualities like Jim Caviezil in Person of Interest.
DELORES: I want to write more cowboy cops, especially a Marshal or two. Well, six actually. J My next series is the Marshals of Maverick County, and all the heroes are U.S. Marshals. The first book, DALLAS, comes out in May 2013.
DELORES: Well, she didn't actually die, but I had a character chased by attack dogs through a hedge maze.
DELORES: the dancing! No wait, the food and drinks. And the people. Hey, I love everything about the Harlequin party.
DELORES: Since I write cowboys, making out places include barns, in the saddle, pastures, but I did have a couple make out in a pantry surrounded by Oreos and another in the break room at a police station.
