I debated this for over a month before making the decision, but I have decided to tell Madeline Thompson’s story as the 4th book in the Montana Collection. Madeline (if you recall) was mentioned brief at the beginning of Boaz’s Wager.
The man swore, threw the purses aside, and went over to them. They stepped back so he stopped and studied them. “Ain’t one of you Madeline Thompson?”
They shook their heads and Eva cleared her throat to answer. “No, sir. I’m Eva Connealy and this is Rachel Larson.”
The other man stopped going through their trunks and swore another word Eva hoped she’d never hear again for as long as she lived. “We got the wrong lady.”
Originally, I was going to put Madeline’s story in a standalone novel or in another series. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to just add it to the Montana Collection.
I’ve been working on a cover for it to go with the other covers in the series. I was going to call the book Stolen. But now, I’m going to change it. I am passing the cover and title to the publisher before I reveal them on this blog. For now, you will notice that on the “Works In Progress” page, I have deleted the title “Stolen” and the cover that went with it. I need to go in and delete it off of Facebook while I’m thinking about it.
That doesn’t mean I won’t use the cover for another book or the title for another book in the future. But I won’t use it for this particular book. I’ll let you know more when I figure out what I’m going to do. 😀
I think it’s a good idea to add it to this collection. It will fit nicely. 🙂
I think Madeline’s story fits best here than somewhere else. I’m looking forward to writing it.
