Love, Love on the Range

I recently discovered and interesting fact: the romance genre is currently outselling all other genres in the fiction market. More specifically. an estimated $1.358 billion in sales in 2010. What does this have to do with westerns? A lot actually. Historical romances are a vital part of the romance realm and many of these are set in the west, both the old west and its modern incarnation. So, if you like your romances with a western flavor or you like your westerns with a dash of romance, check out some of our new titles.

Austin / Linda Lael Miller

Bestselling author Miller needs no introduction for fans of the romance genre. For those who are not familiar with her work she is often referred to as the First Lady of the West. Austin is the latest in her series about the Mckettricks of Texas.

There are many excellent authors writing in this genre. I hope this wets your appetite to dig for more. Pardner, there's gold in them thar hills!
