Dashing Druid, book two in my Texas Druids trilogy, is FREE today only on Amazon. This sensual western romance stars Tye Devlin, the eldest of three psychically gifted siblings. Descended from legendary Irish Druids, Tye is an empath. He “feels” others’ emotions. Over time, he has learned to block out most of the “racket” in order to save his sanity, but when he meets Texas cowgirl Lil Crawford, he has no defense against her hidden pain.
Unlucky in love, Lil guards her bruised heart behind a tough façade, working alongside her father’s cowhands. When a handsome stranger with an Irish brogue calls her beautiful, she thinks he’s mocking her, yet she can’t help wishing such a man might truly find her beautiful. Haunted by his own nightmarish memories, Tye faces an uphill battle in his pursuit of this spirited, part-Cherokee heroine.
Set in the 1870s, against a backdrop of Texas ranch life and an iconic cattle drive, this epic love story pits Tye and Lil against dangerous enemies and their own feuding families as they fight their personal demons. Will they decide love is worth the consequences? Will Tye’s gift turn out to be a blessing or a curse?

Would you like to know what it was like moving a big cattle herd across a raging river in the old days? Come visit me on Sweethearts of the West, where I’m a guest blogger. Crossing the Red River is my topic. To show how perilous a crossing was, I included two excerpts from Dashing Druid. Please stop by and give it a read. Comments welcome!
Just a note to let y’all know I posted a new blog on Cowboy Kisses, the group site I recently joined. It’s titled The Roots of Western Romance. Also included is an excerpt from Dashing Druid. I hope you’ll stop by and give it a read. Comments are always welcome.
The past few hours have been frightening. The entire DFW metroplex was under a tornado warning. Several funnel touched down, doing severe damage in Arlington, southeast of Fort Worth, and east from there. I watched huge truck trailers flying through the air on TV, like toys. Unreal!
Now the storms have moved east of Dallas. One high school was hit by a tornado. I don’t know how bad the damage is there. Sure hope the kids are okay. Other school districts are on lockdown, not letting children leave until the storm system passes over. Some angry parents are causing trouble, demanding to take their kids. It’s chaotic.
Today is the last FREE today for White Witch in its current KDP Select period. This novella begins in 1871, at the time of the Great Chicago Fire. The story then picks up several months later, as the city and my characters struggle to recover from the tragedy.
“White Witch is the prequel to Lyn Horner’s Darlin’ Druid; it sets the background and introduces the characters of Jessie and Tye, children of Irish immigrants . . . A short story that is extremely well written, the historically accurate events of the Chicago Fire . . . and it’s aftermath are all here from the grabbing of their few belongings to fear of their horse as they try to get to safety. I had wondered when I saw the title White Witch what the paranormal content might be, but in this it refers to uncannily accurate realistic premonitions. It is all reasonably plausible. It even considers the symptoms and effects of the then unknown Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, that people would have had no choice but to cope with in those days. . . I look forward to reading more of Lyn Horner’s Druid series.”

“I really enjoyed reading this prequel . . . I had never really heard of the Chicago Fire and to read of the suffering and loss was just tragic. This is where Jesse’s gift makes an appearance leading into Darlin’ Druid. Also Tye’s gift which leads to his story, Dashin’ Druid. These books are wonderful and I would highly recommend them to anyone.” — Bev Harro, reviewer
