Twin Cities, MN, January 02, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Shotgun Bride, The Quinter Brides Book 1, Lauri Robinson’s recent novel, has been on the bestselling list at Fictionwise, one of the largest independent electronic book sellers in North America, for the past several weeks. Shotgun Bride is the first book in the series about five fictional Quinter Brothers set in western Kansas in the 1800’s.
When asked why she enjoys writing western historical novels, Robinson said, “I know I wasn’t the only girl who wanted to grow up and marry Little Joe Cartwright. Western romance novels have ‘Little Joe’ type heroes—lanky, handsome, rugged, sometimes risky, but always, always, sexy and loveable. The kind of heroes dreams are made of.”
Shotgun Bride, The Quinter Brides Book One, is the story of the oldest brother Kid, and his new bride, Jessie. The two must marry or her brother will hang for horse theft. Coffee Time Romance reviewer, Cherokee says, “This firecracker of a story should not to be missed.” And The Long and Short of it Reviews reviewer Lilac says, “Shotgun Bride is an absorbing tale and a wonderful read”. The book, currently available in multi formats for e-books, and the Amazon Kindle, will become available in print on February 20, 2009.
Each of the Quinter Brides books has one thing in common, the family matriarch, Stephanie, “Ma” Quinter and her double-barrel shotgun. Book two, Badland Bride will be released in 2009.
