First, congratulations to Susan (susanlulu) who is the winner of Davalyn Spencer's book The Cowboy Takes a Bride. A big thank you to all who stopped by. Hope you will return each week to meet another author.
This week, bestselling author Kathleen Y’Barbo is in the spotlight. She is a multiple Carol Award and RITA nominee of fifty novels with almost two million copies of her books in print in the US and abroad. A tenth-generation Texan and certified family law paralegal, she has been nominated for a Career Achievement Award as well a Reader’s Choice Award and several Top Picks by Romantic Times magazine.

A member of Romance Writers of America, American Christian Fiction Writers, and a former member of the Texas Bar Association Paralegal Division, she is currently a proud military wife and an expatriate Texan cheering on her beloved Texas Aggies from north of the Red River. 

I've known Kathleen for nearly fifteen years, and she was one of my critique partners until we got so busy with deadlines we didn't have time to read much what the other wrote. Kathleen has a unique style all her own, and I've loved reading her books through the years. I thought her last series would be my favorite, but she hooked me with the Secret Lives of Will Tucker, and I think you will be too. Welcome Kathleen this week by leaving comments today and then again tomorrow when she will tell us more about her writing.

The Elusive Will Tucker and His Secret Lives

Will Tucker is on the loose again. He escapes from jail leaving his twin brother, who is actually an undercover detective, to take his place. Where will the elusive Mr. Tucker head next? Kathleen Y’Barbo completes the three book series about the Secret Lives of Will Tucker in Sadie’s Secret. Will Tucker has stolen many items in his escapades with wealthy women, but this time he has stolen his twin brother’s future, and it’s up to Sadie Callum, undercover Pinkerton agent and master of disguise, to unravel the twists and turns and help Jefferson clear his name. Neither expects anything other than to solve the case, but God has other plans for their lives. Once again Y’Barbo takes us to Louisiana in 1890 where we see how the upper-crust of New Orleans lives. With characters who charm and pull the reader into the story, fans of Y’Barbo will not be disappointed with the adventures of Sadie and Jefferson. Will they end up together and will Will Tucker finally be put away for good? Have fun finding the answers in this delightful book.

Can you keep a secret? Has anyone ever told you to keep something secret until they can reveal it to everyone? Or perhaps you had a gift for someone and has to keep it a secret until you could give it. How hard was it to keep that secret?
