New York Times best-selling romance novelist Jodi Thomas sets a lot of her torrid historical tales in Fort Worth, and her latest release -- set to drop on August 7 -- is no exception.
The multiple RITA Award winner's 35th book and 6th in her "Whispering Mountain" series, Wild Texas Rose, draws from her family's oral history of northwest Texas, spanning more five generations.
Inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame in 2006, TWU educated Thomas began penning historical romances in 1980 based on dissatisfaction with factual inaccuracies permeating the genre.
Thomas served as West Texas A&M's second writer-in-residence in 2003, and the prolific and popular writer's work has been translated into six languages.
Pre-order Thomas' newest paperback in advance of Tuesday's release.
