Sylvia McDaniel is one of those "new" authors I've recently discovered. Only, she isn't new to writing, having penned nearly 20 books, most of them Western historical romances. She grew up watching the old Western movies with her father, her favorite being McClintock with Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne. So i
t's not surprise sheloves strong, sassy heroines, which must be why her latest series, Lipstick and Lead, features a trio of bounty hunters who happen to be sisters. Desperate is a newly released novella that introduces the series. Here's a blurb and excerpt:
“My sister may not have had a mother to raise her properly, but she’s been taught that girls don’t chase boys.”
“She wasn’t chasing them, Meg. She was charging them a nickel a piece to kiss her,” Miss Andrews said, her parasol held tightly in her gloved hands. The old maid had driven out here in her buggy, her fourth visit this school year.
Miss Andrews placed her hands on her hips and almost snarled at Meg. “I would never have found out about it, if the line hadn’t gone clear around the building. I caught her in the act of kissing Jimmy Brown.”
Where to find Sylvia:
Sylvia's next books in the series will be coming out soon. Deadly debuts in October, and Dangerous is out in November. Daring is set for December.
