I was recently asked an important question by a fellow author. She wanted to know how
ties in with the Devlin siblings in my Texas Druids series. I answered her
briefly, but I’d like to give a more detailed answer here on Sweethearts. Texas
Jessie, Tye and Rose Devlin are offspring of Irish immigrants who fled their native land for the
in the late 1840s during the
Irish Potato Famine. Settling in U.S. ,
where the children grow up, the family might seem like others following the
American dream, but they harbor a secret. The three siblings and their mother are
descendants of a long line of Celtic Druids reaching back into the depths of
time. Each possesses a unique psychic talent they keep hidden for fear of
ridicule and ostracism. Chicago
A few years after the death of their mother, which sends young Rose running to a convent, Jessie and Tye live through the Great Chicago fire of 1871. You can read about their terrifying experience in White Witch, a novella preceding the trilogy. This prequel also showcases Jessie’s clairvoyant ability.
In Darlin’ Druid, book one of the trilogy, Jessie leaves home in search of a man she has seen in dreams and visions. Her quest takes her west via the transcontinental railroad. Along the way she meets Captain David Taylor, a Texan exiled from home after fighting for the Yankees in the Civil War, Their stormy romance takes them to
and a world of trouble, but they end up in ,
the hero's boyhood home. The last third of the book takes place in the lone
star state. Bosque County, Texas
And now, here's the cover for Dearest Druid.
As you see, the design is different from the first two books in the trilogy. As soon as I have a free moment I plan to change the other two covers to match this one. I'm also adding sub-titles and changing the name of the series. Some friends on Amazon's Meet Our Authors forum -- on the "Western Romance Authors Please Post Here" thread -- suggested using the family name. What do you think?
