Congratulations to "Jaclyn L." the winner of Angi's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!
"With the reputation of "One riot, one Ranger," the Rangers don’t seem to need a massive group to accomplish their mission and maintain their reputation."
Reading about the history of the Texas Rangers, it's amazing that the law enforcement organization has withstood wars, corrupt politicians, and modernization. The current version of the Rangers was created in 1935 (112 years after their organization). The Texas legislature created the Department of Public Safety and a main investigative branch is the Texas Rangers.
One of the main roles of the modern Texas Ranger is to assist local law enforcement who lack experience or resources with investigations. A newer division deals is the Unsolved Crimes Investigation Program (I feel a book proposal coming). My character, Cord McCrea, is acting under one of the prime directives: rendering assistance to local law enforcement officials in suppressing crime and violence.
As exciting and dangerous as writing about drug trafficking in West Texas might be, PROTECTING THEIR CHILD is a story about the reconnection of two people who love each other very much. I thought I'd share this little snippet from my heroine's POV.
Kate Danvers McCrea: Her husband had never wanted to discuss his cases with her. Had always thought it was too dangerous. Then they’d been threatened. And threatened again. And ambushed. And he’d still held back details. The thought should make her angry--angrier--but she wasn’t. She was proud that he’d kept his oath to the Rangers. But the world had changed. There wasn’t honor among thieves and there were no boundaries on the casualties of war.
PROTECTING THEIR CHILD is currently on bookshelves and available on-line. I hope you'll give it a try and let me know what you think. Thanks for joining me today!
