The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch

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?
Whatever the answer, Kade now had more than one reason to close this case once and for all.
Related Books in Series: Grayson, Dade, Nate, & Gage coming in August, Mason in September
Book’s location: KADE is book 4 of The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch

Delores Fossen QUICK FACTS:
  • published 45 books
  • began writing in  1998
  • hometown or favorite city: San Antonio, TX
  • ice cream or cake? ice cream
  • hiking or biking? hiking (requires less coordination!)

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.

What or who inspired the hero for KADE?
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.

Is there a hero you’re just dying to write about for Intrigue? 
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.

What’s your favorite way you’ve killed someone (in your books of course)?
DELORES:  Well, she didn't actually die, but I had a character chased by attack dogs through a hedge maze.

What’s your favorite thing about the Harlequin Party?
DELORES: the dancing! No wait, the food and drinks. And the people. Hey, I love everything about the Harlequin party.

Where are some unusual places your characters have ‘made out’?
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.

GOTTA ASK: If you had to choose a movie to describe KADE, which would it be?
DELORES HAS GOTTA ANSWER:   Can I choose a TV show instead? Justified with Timothy Oliphant. Kade has that kind of dark intensity and looks great in a cowboy hat, too.

Delores Fossen said...

Hello, everyone! I'll be doing a drawing from those who leave comments, and the winner will receive the first 3 books of The Lawmen of Silver Creek series: GRAYSON, DADE and NATE and a $10 Amazon giftcard.


Angi Morgan said...

MAN, I THINK I NEED A SHOWER after posting all these gorgeous man-covers !!

Welcome to GLIAS, Delores. Whew...I'm fanning myself and wishing my covers were this good-looking!!

Have fun today!!

Delores Fossen said...

Thanks, Angi! I'm thrilled with them. So far my favorite is Gage. :)

Sabrina Shields said...

I a huge fan of the Intrigue line and your books so I'm excited to hear about your upcoming series!

My favorite kick butt hero of TV the past few years has been Chuck - the computer nerd turned CIA agent. I really enjoy unlikely hero stories!

lesliepgarcia said...

Can't believe you're at 45 now, Delores, and each as good or better than the last! And I got a little misty-eyed on your answer to where you get your heroes! Here's to another 45 books or more--the marshal series sounds marvelous!

Delores Fossen said...

Sabrina, thanks! I'm excited about the new series, too, but it took me a while to get this current series out of my head. When I finished writing the final book, MASON, I felt so lost as if I'd lost real friends. Yes, a writer's mind is a strange place. lol

I like Chuck as well!

Thanks for dropping by.


Delores Fossen said...

Leslie, I know what you mean about #45. When I first started writing, I never thought I'd be lucky enough to have that many books. I'm actually writing my 51st Harlequin now (my 54th over all) so that 45 number will soon go up. :) I hope it continues!

Thanks! It's always great to chat with you.


Poer Mom said...

Think I just found my beach reads! Can't wait to get started on Grayson!

Angi Morgan said...

I do like the abs on Gage.
Love the mystery about Nate's cover though.


Tammy Yenalavitch said...

Hi Delores.

I love - love your books. I like the guy on Person of Interest too. He is a very interesting and complex character. Plus, I would want him to protect me anytime

Ruth said...

Can't wait to read Gage and Mason. They are pre-ordered for my Kindle from Amazon. Your new US. Marshal series sounds great.

Ingeborg said...

I love the covers of your books. Great looking guys.

Delores Fossen said...

Poer Mom (love that name!), I really hope you enjoy Grayson. I had so much fun writing his book. He was so tough and in charge, and of course, I had to mess up his life. lol. When you get a chance to read it, please let me know what you thought of it.


Delores Fossen said...

Tammy, it's great to see you here! I'm so glad you enjoy my books. I hear you on the guy from Person of Interest. Oh, yeah. He can save me, too. ;)

Delores Fossen said...

Ruth, THANK YOU!! I really appreciate your pre-orders and hope you enjoy them. Hope you enjoy the new Marshal series, too. I'm writing them and having so much fun.

Thanks for dropping by!


Delores Fossen said...

Thanks, Ingeborg. The cover gods were good to me this time. :)

Trisha Steere said...

I love all of the books so far, Grayson was my favorite book, well until I read my favorite book. But I'm still waiting to read Mason. He has been my favorite character from the very first book. Is it time for Mason yet? lol Love your books Delores.


Robin Perini said...

Hi Delores--

Wow! 45. You're an inspiration. I love your books and you're one of the reasons I turned onto Intrigues. As to a kick-butt hero...Justified's Timothy Olyphant hands down! Love, Love, love that show!

Jane said...

Congrats on your upcoming releases, Delores. I do love Batman. He doesn't have any superpowers, but he tries his best(with cool gadgets) to keep Gotham safe.

Delores Fossen said...

Trisha, thank you so much for making your way over here and posting. I really appreciate it. So, Kade won you over? :)))) That put a big smile on my face. Glad you enjoyed it! Not too much longer for Mason now. Crossing fingers and toes that you like his story!

Delores Fossen said...

Robin, that's so sweet. You know I've been a fan of yours since your contest days, and I'm thrilled that you're an Intrigue author now. Oh, YES, to Timothy. Sometimes, when I'm watching Justified, I miss the dialogue because I'm too busy watching him. lol

Delores Fossen said...

Thanks, Jane. I've been so blessed to be able to write for Intrigue. I still love what I do after all these books. Batman works for me, too! Can't wait for the new movie. Thanks for dropping by and posting.

Laney4 said...

I'm thinking of Kato (Bruce Lee) from The Green Hornet TV series back in the sixties. Too old? Oops....

Delores Fossen said...

Laney, not too old at all! I thought Kato was awesome.

Thanks for dropping by!


Loves 2 Read Romance - Laura said...

Hey Delores! I have the first 3 books of this series in my TBR pile. I love the cover for Kade's book. There is nothing like a great looking hero and cute babies on a cover. I also like the sound of your newest series. Congrats on all the books. I look forward to many more.

StacieD said...

Daniel Craig as James Bond! I love the new Bonds films. Sean Connery may be slipping as my favorite Bond.

bn100 said...

Very nice interview. I'd say Batman.


TAMMY said...

omg finally found you just love your books thanks for the chance my favorite kick but person is every women i read about in your books lol

TAMMY said...
was so excited forgot to leave email address ss

Delores Fossen said...

Thanks, Laura. So glad you enjoyed the first three. Hope you'll enjoy the others, too. Speaking of Kade's cover, the baby's mother got in touch with me, and she's so nice. It's always great to hear from the models and in this case, the model's mom. :)

Thanks for dropping by!


Delores Fossen said...

Oh, StacieD, I totally agree. I LOVE Daniel Craig as Bond, and before him, I was a huge Sean Connery fan. But there's just something about Daniel (wiping the drool off my screen now, lol)


Delores Fossen said...

Batman definitely works for me, too!

Delores Fossen said...

Tammy, I'm so glad you stopped by, and I'm SO GLAD you love my books. I really do love writing them, and I hope that love comes through in the books. As for kick butt--Kade's heroine, Bree, can do some serious damage. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
