Cowboy Surprise

Cowboy Surprise
Family ties run deep in the heart of Texas.

Who knew that having the Dalton looks—dark hair and blue eyes—would deem Justus as a trustworthy person? That’s exactly what happens when a friend of the family turns up on the Daltons’ ranch and thrusts a baby at him to watch because nobody else is home. After she leaves, he realizes he doesn’t even know her name—or how to care for an infant.

Tuesday is one of the most sought-out hairstylists in three counties, and she’s got problems. Not only is she raising her irresponsible teen sister’s baby as her own but she is shorthanded in the babysitter department. And boy does she dump a surprise on that cute cousin of the Daltons’ when she asks him to watch the infant so she doesn’t lose her client.

Justus finds himself helping out the busy single mom several times, and he can’t help but admire more than her sexy curves. Tuesday is mouthy and knows what she wants, two things his momma would claim as his traits too. She’s looking to provide a home and a good life for the child she’s adopted, but Justus makes her stop and smell the sweet grasses as they tumble in them, that is. Things are heating up, and he doesn’t want to walk away. But is he cut out for fatherhood and if so, would this single-minded, strong woman let him in? $3.99 on Kindle.

He’s made no bones about the fact that he isn’t looking for forever. She is, but if it’s not in the cards then so be it. Riggs trips her switch and she’s not about to pass up one moment with him, nor is she about to let anything prevent her from being with him. That resolve was holding pretty firm until an old friend, Belinda, shows up with a three year old daughter, Bernice, in tow. Belinda is sick. If she doesn’t get a kidney transplant she’ll die. And she wants Cody to commit to being Bernice’s godmother, to raise her if Belinda dies. It’s a tall order, but Cody falls in love with the little girl and is ready to say yes. Then all hell breaks loose when Belinda says that Bernice’s father is right there in Cotton Creek. If it’s true, it’s going to cause a whole lot of trouble. Come share the joys and woes, the danger and the fun as we prove once more that the old saying “nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek” needs to be changed to “Looking for Trouble?

Rebel With A Gun

rebel-with-a-gunHe was fifteen when the Civil War started, nineteen when it ended. His parents were dead by then, their farm sold for the taxes. The girl he loved had married a boy he hated. Nothing seemed right.

So he headed for Texas with a disreputable old snake oil peddler and a beautiful blonde with a jealous husband and a dangerous secret that could get them all killed. 

Even though he had ridden with Quantrill and Bloody Bill, he was not like the others. Many of them were not the only bushwhackers who flourished during the war. Men just like them had waved the Union flag and used it to cloak their crimes, and now that the fighting was over not all of them would be content to lay down their arms and return to their former pursuits. Some, like their southern counterparts, would become outlaws. Many on both sides had never been anything else, and for them the war had just been a continuation of a life of lawlessness and violence. Now they would use the unsettled conditions in the wake of the war to camouflage their activities.

Of course, many would go west, especially to Texas. For years men had been going to Texas who were wanted or not wanted in other states. There was a well-known saying— “Gone to Texas.” It usually applied to men who had gone there a jump ahead of the law.

Death in Black Holsters

death-in-black-holstersThey said Lorn Chambers packed death in his black holsters. But Chambers was a relic from the past, the last of the great gunfighters. All the others were dead or had hung up their guns, trying to change with the times. Chambers turned his back on the future and rode off into the western wasteland, looking for what was left of the past. What he found was some vicious killers from his own past. They had robbed and murdered his parents years before and planned to kill Chambers before he could kill them. 

Warning: Reading a Van Holt western may make you want to get on a horse and hunt some bad guys down in the Old West. Of course, the easiest and most enjoyable way to do it is vicariously—by reading another Van Holt western. 
Van Holt writes westerns the way they were meant to be written.

The Long Trail

the-long-trailThe long trail means death in the Old West. But it’s a long and dangerous trail that Ben Russell must follow in his search for the men who murdered his father. Then it’s that other long trail for the killers when they go down before his blazing gun—the long trail to hell. 
Van Holt’s hellbound gunslingers always send the bad guys where they belong. It just isn’t safe for them anywhere in the Old West anymore. 

Of course, the gunsters and punksters of our own time will feel a lot safer when the government disarms their victims and those who might be able to protect them if they weren’t afraid they would get in more trouble than the perpetrators.
