AWARDS:RITA Award, WinnerREVIEWS:"...one heck of a fun ride with... snappy dialogue that doesn't slow down." ~Rendezvous"You don't want to miss this delight." ~RT BookclubALSO by Eileen Dreyer:Nothing PersonalBrain DeadBad MedicineIf Looks Could Killting cattlemen were only half of the range-war story. Vigilante grangers were on the rise in Texas, and certain whispers in certain saloons placed the vengeance-minded ring-leaders in Lampasas."Gangs and gunfights, futile efforts to keep Sadie out of the crossfire of Cass's life and choices, and gritty determination for each character's objectives in life ("In the final analysis, Cass didn't give a rat's ass about Pinkerton or his secret army of nameless, faceless minions. If Cass had to use his Ranger badge to keep Baron alive and Sadie safe, then by God, he would.") create a drama filled with plenty of satisfying twists and turns of plot.The processes of Pinkerton's services and the devices they employ, from new bulletproof vests to investigations, permeate a story line of evolving passion - and yet it's also satisfying to note that Sadie doesn't become a helpless female in the face of love, but preserves her feisty, determined independence.The result is a well detailed, carefully honed Western romance mystery that will thrill, titillate and delight readers of these genres with its winding story of love and life's evolution.-- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review"Six-guns, brothels, and a wily raccoon set deWolfe's latest Wild West mystery apart. The relationships keep the pages turning."--Emily Thompson, Reviewer, Library JournalÔÇ£Adrienne deWolfe serves up a dose of pure fun. Her feisty heroine, charming hero, and assortment of secondary players are loaded with character. The tale is liberally infused with a Wild West flavor that really spices up the tale. Fans of suspenseful Westerns should get this one on their e-readers!"--Heather Nordahl Files, Reviewer, Affaire de Coeur"Adrienne deWolfe has done it again with a rousing adventure set in the Wild West thatÔÇÖs sure to please any lover of Western novels. Deftly weaving rich characters with a sublimely unique plot, DEVIL IN TEXAS is the perfect blend of laugh-out-loud storytelling and heartfelt emotion.  Set against the colorful backdrop of 1880ÔÇÖs Texas, deWolfe delivers a deliciously wicked pair of star-crossed lovers, a Texas-Ranger whodunit, and a rascally raccoon, named Vandy, who will steal your heart. Honestly, I couldnÔÇÖt put it down!--Barbara Ankrum, #1 Bestselling Author"Adrienne deWolfe's DEVIL IN TEXAS sizzles like the devil's own pitchfork! And that devil, Cass Cassidy, meets his match in the fiery diva, Sadie Michelson. Readers will love this sassy duo, a heroine who changes her name as often as she changes clothes, and a to-die-for hero she dubs, 'Eros in spurs.'  Sparks really fly between these lovers with sparkling dialogue, hilarious one-liners, and laugh out loud witticisms. DEVIL IN TEXAS highlights deWolfe's fantastic storytelling skills with this perfect start to a great new series. I can't wait to read the next book!"--Sharon Ihle, #1 Bestselling AuthorMy main issue with writing this review is where to go first! I was already excited to dive back into deWolfe's writing because it's been a while, and Devil in Texas was definitely worth diving into! It has plenty of suspense, drama and romance and it all keeps you wanting to turn pages until the very end. Basically once I started Devil in Texas I didn't want to put it down at all. I love Sadie! I mean I'm pretty sure I loved her already from Shady Lady, a prequel of sorts to Cass and Sadie's love story, but in this book she came into her own. She was a strong and independent woman who knew what she wanted and would get it. She didn't need protecting and to top it off she was a Pinkerton (pretty much an undercover policeman).Cass on the other hand had a devilish charm, but despite his reputation being a big thing for the other characters, particularly with women, I never once thought that he wouldn't stand by Sadie. He was protective of her, but he was also protective of Collie (effectively his sidekick) and the other people around him. He let Sadie be herself though, including helping her out of trouble not saving her.The romance between them was almost a subplot really. I mean they clearly loved each other a lot, but the other things going on in the book took a more central role. I liked it as it meant that they could really grow as characters, and because they already felt that way about each other at the beginning of the book.Collie (and his pet coon, Vandy) definitely provided a bit of comic relief too! Though for some reason I kept imagining him younger than he was even though I knew he was 18. While this is the start of a new series, Cass and Collie have been characters in a different series,Velvet Lies, too and it helped knowing their backstory too.This was an exciting and highly enjoyable read, I'd definitely recommend it!--Laura Greenwood for Trips Down Imagination Road

    The suspicious death of a New York retail tycoon reveals dangerous cracks in a family’s foundation in this page-turning novel of wealth, jealousy, betrayal, and murder One of New York’s most elegant and exclusive retail establishments, Tarkington’s has been the preferred shopping experience of Manhattan’s elite for decades. But the unexpected death of founder Silas Tarkington has raised serious doubts about the future of the enterprise, and his daughter, Miranda, must weigh the pros and cons of continuing her father’s legacy. Then, at the reading of Silas’s will, disturbing questions arise about the tycoon’s past and suggestions of a dark, secret life threaten to tear the family apart. For Miranda; her elegant socialite mother, Consuelo; her estranged son, Blazer; and Diana, the fieriest and most recent in the late entrepreneur’s long line of mistresses, the truth could destroy much more than the family business—especially as it becomes more and more likely that Silas’s death was no accident.   Author Stephen Birmingham has spent his career documenting the lives of the wealthy and powerful in his bestsellers “Our Crowd” and “The Rest of Us”. Putting his unique inside knowledge of the privileged world of the upper crust to excellent use, he has devised a thrilling story of money, power, deception, and treachery that will keep the reader eagerly turning its pages.
