Meet the Hollis Boys


12 Hot Brothers and Cousins in the Old West

When I first sat down with my hunky hero from OUTLAWS OF LOVE, I immediately knew this man was part of a big, supportive, shoot ‘em up family. This prosperous ranching family is so full of testosterone, they have their own zip code in a time when tumbleweeds defined boundaries. 

Picture a spread covering miles, the finest horseflesh dotting the land. And a valley where several big homes sprawl into one big homestead. This is the Hollis Ranch, owned by four brothers, who married the perfect little ladies and produced three rugged cowboys each. Now these twelve Hollis Boys are on the prowl for trouble—and romance!

Xander Hollis stars in the first book of the series, Outlaws of Love. (available from Loose Id http://bit.ly/M9o1fo). Xander is deemed an outlaw when he starts robbing from the rich railroad and giving back to the poor people of Texas. With the help of his smoldering sidekick James, they dig themselves deep in the trenches of trouble and find love with the railroad owner’s daughter, Annabelle.

Xander’s two brothers, twins Drew and Dam (short for Adam), are at this moment scheming up ways to disentangle themselves from a predicament of their own. I look for them to appear in the fourth Hollis Boys story!


Graham, a dark, tormented ex-soldier for the South, secretly weds a sweet country girl and invites the ire of a plotting ranch hand, as well as some ghosts from his past, in TRAIL OF LUST (available from Loose Id http://bit.ly/JKI4DD). His brothers Nolan and Clay—with the rest of the family—jump in to help.

Nolan’s book, WILD WILD HEARTS, releases September 4, 2012, and involves a deep secret he keeps from his family. The dedication in this book says, “For all those who long to be free.” I hope this gives you a sense of the content!

Now to meet the rest of the Hollis crew, all ripped half-dozen of them. Each makes a cameo appearance in the first three books. Calvin, Stowe, and Newlin are secretive men who haven’t yet whispered to me, but it’s only a matter of time before I crack their hard, yummy shells. And Peter, Kel, and Whitfield are ruthless businessmen who look to expand their family’s ranch by reaching across the vast territories of Texas.

I’m so excited to delve into these characters’ lives in the future and find out what makes them tick. Matching them up with the perfect leading ladies and men is going to be an adventure—one I can’t wait to embark upon! I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know my ‘boys’ too. 

And thanks to Lynn for allowing me to hijack her blog for a day! Happy reading!
