Hello. So glad you stopped by today to learn about the Cactus Rose line of The Wild Rose Press. Cactus stories are historical westerns set “west of the Mississippi River during the 1800s. They should be filled with colorful characters and plenty of romance. Historical accuracy is important but shouldn't overshadow the romance in the story. Give us adventure, seduction, and a rollicking good time!” (quoted from the website)
I have always loved westerns—something I learned from my dad. On family road trips when an old cemetery appeared, he’d stop and take a few minutes to walk through reading the gravestones. I soaked up his explanations about reading the dates and figuring if influenza or another disease had swept through the town. Or he’d point out how a man or woman’s death closely followed the death of a spouse.
