In this new story, successful New York dime novelist May Meriwether sees an article in the paper and is convinced two Texas Rangers would offer great inspiration as a love interest for her new heroine and sets out to the Lone Star State with her companion Chester in tow. 
     She's given up long ago on her dreams of finding her own true love and having a family, relegating them to the recesses of her heart. But a widower resurrects a smidgen of hope. Only his superstitious beliefs stand in the way--and his love for his dead wife.

Enjoy this excerpt!
       "Her two-room suite on the third deck practically took her breath away, much fancier than her own bedroom and the parlor back home. Dinner, served almost as she boarded, tasted divine.
After putting away the rest of her things, he placed her valise on the writing table, took out the manuscript, ink well and quill pen. “Anything else, ma’am?”
“Yes, please. I need another forty thousand words. Have any idea where I might pick some up?”
“May I suggest the same place you obtained all the others?”
“Oh Chester, Chester, Chester. I was afraid you might say something completely and dreadfully useless like that. Why can’t you ever tell me what I want to hear?”
He grinned, bowed, then backed out like a real butler, and like she was a real lady.
“Where’s your room?”
He stopped at her door. “Directly across the hall. Supper’s at eight, ma’am. A warning bell will sound.” He bowed his head. “You should be able to cut that forty by a third before reclining for the night.”
She curled her lip. “Work, work, work. You’re such a slave driver.”
He smiled again and closed her door.
No way could she write that fast, much less think of that much for her arrogant, mindless heroes and her whiny coy heroines to do or say. That’s it.
She’d have them marry, say I do, and be done with the lot of them. Too bad the contract she’d signed clearly spelled out one hundred thousand hard-won words.
Why, oh why, had she accepted the advance?
She slipped out of her skirt and bustle then plopped into the chair. It didn’t even swivel, and the seat cushion wasn’t soft enough, and…now who was being whiny? She smiled.
After all, weren’t all the well-rounded characters she created at least a tad like her? She hefted her hiney to the back of the seat cushion and straightened the blank pages.
No time for complaining and whining.
She stared at the last page she’d worked on, reread it, and picked up the pen. She carefully opened the ink well then tickled her chin with the feather. The tickle never failed.
An idea emerged, and she dipped the quill in the offending black liquid. Soon flowing phrases filled the page. Like soldiers marching to a sure death, the letters formed their lines and hurried to their boring demise.
Doing what paid so well, she started mussing the next pristine white paper page.
Two wrong turns and five hundred decent words later, the supper bell rang and set her loose from the chains of her imagined dungeon. Shortly, Chester followed her down to the grand dining hall.
He located then held her chair out. Once seated, he scooted her closer to the table then backed away.
She nodded at the woman to her right. “Good evening, ma’am.” Then bent her wrist and extended her hand to the gentleman on her left. “Hello, May Meriwether, sir. Good evening.”
He took her fingers ever so gently. “The same May Meriwether who killed her husband last year?”

And wow! Twenty-one Five-star reviews of twenty-one! Here's a sample: 
    Ms. McAdoo once again has gripped me from page one. (I read this book in almost one sitting. I quit reading around 2/3 one morning and resumed later in the day after I got caught up on sleep.) These Texas Romance/Christian Romantic Historical Western Adventures are certainly full of all of the aspects of each genre individually and meshed into a wonderful story that is very unique and unforgettable. 
                                                             -- Rachelle Williams, a Mississippi reader

I love series books and A Texas Romance series is full of mystery, suspense, twist, turns, forgiveness, redemption and love. The story kept me captivated. The dialogue is entertaining and heartwarming. The story does have a cliffhanger for the next book.
                                                                             -- Kathy Watts, reader in Sevierville, Tennessee

Hope Reborn is the third in a series. It is not necessary to read the first two but it is helpful to get the background.I loved the characters in this book, and I thought it was so much fun that Ms. McAdoo put her novels in as though they were written by May. (Hint: If you haven't read Lady Luck's A Loser and plan to, you might want to read it first.) This was a great story and I can't wait until the next one comes out.                              -- Susan Johnson, reader in Odessa, Texas
