Guest Blog-Author Chastity Bush

Thanks for having me here today, Melissa!
I’m thrilled that you enjoyed my western romance, Tumbleweeds. This book was a lot of fun to write. Westerns have always been one of my main interests, be they books or movies. The first western romance I ever read was For the Roses by Julie Garwood. After that, I was in love with not only reading, but anything to do with the old west as well. So when the idea for Tumbleweeds popped into my head, (which surprised the stuffing out of me because paranormal is my forte) I knew I had to write it, or lose my mind!
I wanted to make this book as historically accurate as possible, so I did a good bit of research to do just that. Our library here is quite small, so thank heavens for Google!
I have to admit; I don’t think I could have lived in those days. All the clothing these women wore on a daily basis was more than I could ever handle. 
I didn’t plan on this book being a series, but after all the good reviews and reader remarks, I’m planning a sequel. This one will be about Deputy Robbie, as everyone seemed to love him, of course, I did my best to make him as loveably sexy as humanly possible.
In the meantime, I just signed two contracts with Liquid Silver Books for two contemporary romances, The Stranger Next Door and Guarding Eden, so look for those to hit the shelves soon, and my three other paranormal romances, Killer Kisses, A Taste of Terror and Passions Bite are all available at and almost everywhere ebooks are sold. 
I had a great time here today, and I hope you all have a chance to enjoy my work.
Thanks again for having me here today, Melissa!

 As the adopted daughter of the town’s madam, Strawberry Meadows has seen it all. After ten years of living in Lily Bell’s saloon she believes all men are the same: wild cads, cheating husbands, tumbleweeds, and outlaws. Marriage is not an option, but when Berry comes face to face with the town’s new sheriff, she finds herself fighting feelings she has never before experienced. With friends and family playing matchmaker, controlling the urge to throw herself into the lawman’s arms proves more difficult than she ever imagined.

Sheriff Tavis Wilks came to Chamberlin to begin life anew. Perhaps find a wife and settle down. Unfortunately, not one of the women in the town caught his eye or held his interest, until he met Berry. Something about her set his blood on fire. From her hot tempter to her unwillingness to let him close, he wants her, needs her. The only thing stopping him from making her his own is Berry herself.

When an old enemy rambles into town and takes a special interest in Berry, Tavis must scramble to rescue the only woman he has ever loved before his future is destroyed by his past.

Oh, yes, For the Roses was an excellent book! I'd forgotten all about that one.
