Meeting the Montgomerys


Cyndi: Hi All! Cynthia D’Alba here. I’m so pleased to be joined today by the entire Montgomery Clan. Let’s see if I can get the birth order correct. Oldest is Travis

Travis: “Yes, ma’am.”

Cyndi: “Then Jason.”

Jason:  “Nice to meet you.”

Cyndi: “Followed by Olivia.”

Olivia: “That’s correct.” *Her southern accent is quite pronounced*

Cyndi: “And then Cash.”

Cash:   *slumps in chair and crosses his arms* “I don’t know why I had to be here.”

Jason:  “Don’t mind him. He’s probably hung over.”

Cash:   “You son of a–”

Travis: “That’s enough. Both of you.”  *looks at me* “Sorry, ma’am. You know how brothers can be.”

Cyndi: “Not really. I never had brothers. No matter. I’m glad you all could make it.”

Cash:   “Well, hel*, er, heck, ma’am. You’d be in a bad mood too if you had to miss the PBR in Vegas again this year.”

Cyndi: “Never been actually, but I want to. Never mind. I think the readers would like to get to know y’all a little better. If I had you to dinner and offered beer, wine, water, soft drink, or iced tea, what would be your choice.”

Travis: “Either the water or the iced tea.”

Jason:  “Beer, or bourbon, neat if you have it.”

Olivia: “Now that I’m not breastfeeding, I’d love a glass of wine. Red, white, whatever.”

Cash:   “Booze.”

*The three other Montgomery siblings roll their eyes at Cash’s comment.*

Cyndi: “Okay then, what’s your favorite season?

Travis: “I’d have to say summer ‘cause my lady looks so fine in her bikini.”

Jason:  *hoots and slaps Travis’s shoulder* “You are so whipped.”

Travis: *shrugs* Can’t help if my wife looks so good.”

Jason:  “Winter. Nothing bets hitting the slopes in Breckenridge.”

Olivia: “Fall. I love the falling leaves and the color change. Oh! And the family bonfires. Nothing better than snuggling with my honey when there’s a nip in the air.”

Jason:  *pretends to gag at her answer but she ignores him.*

Cyndi: “What about you Cash?”

Cash:   “They’re all about the same to me.” *Shoves long legs out and crosses them at the ankles.* “Are we done yet?”

Cyndi: “How about something a little naughty? What do you wear to bed?”

Travis: *a cute red flush dots his cheeks* “Hmm, pajamas?”

Jason:  *Begins gaffing loudly.* “Right, Travis.” *chuckles more*

Travis: “If you’re such an open book, little brother, tell the lady what you wear to bed.”

Jason:  “I’ve got nothing to be ashamed of. Briefs, ma’am.”

Olivia: “You two are like six-year-olds. I wear some sexy for my man. Shear. Silky and-”

Travis and Jason speak at the same time:  “Enough!”

Travis: “I do not need or want to know about my little sister’s bedroom attire. Got it?”

Cyndi: *snickers* “What about you, Cash?”

Cash:   “My naked dic–”

Travis: “Watch it, Cash.”

Cash:   “Whatever. That it?”

Cyndi: “In a minute. Olivia, we got to read your love story in Texas Two Step.

Olivia: “That’s right. Adam loves for me to read the parts about him to him often.”

Cyndi: “Great.” *looks at Travis* “And we get your story in Texas Tango.”

Travis: “Yes, ma’am, however, I have to say, I didn’t expect it.”

Cyndi: “Don’t you love it when love sneaks up on you?”

Travis: *rubs back of neck* “If you say so, ma’am.”

Cyndi: *looks at audience.* TEXAS TANGO is the second book in the Texas Montgomery Mavericks Series. Here’s a little more about it:

Dr. Caroline Graham is happy with her nomadic lifestyle fulfilling short-term medical contracts. No emotional commitments, no disappointments. She’s always the one to walk away, never the one left behind. But now her great-uncle is gone and her grandmother is on her deathbed, more concerned about Caroline’s lack of a husband than her own demise. What’s the harm in a little white lie? If a wedding will give her grandmother peace, then a wedding she shall have.

TexasTango72webTravis Montgomery has one dream left—to build the ranch he and his wife planned before he lost her to cancer. There’s just one thing standing between him and the last bit of acreage he needs—a last living heir who has one traveling foot out the door…and an unusual request that challenges his determination to never again place his heart at risk. The land he wants in exchange for a faux marriage. Everyone wins. Until things start to snowball…and the hearts they stand to lose are their own.

Olivia: “What are you working on next, Cyndi?”

Cyndi: “I’m writing Cash’s story.”

Cash:   “WHAT?” *jackknifes to a sitting position* “I didn’t give you permission to do that!”

Cyndi:             Oops. Well, that’s all the time I have today. Don’t leave yet! I’ve got some goodies and prizes to give away. But it’s only fair that I tell y’all a little about me. I was born and raised in a small Arkansas town. After being gone for a number of years, I’m thrilled to be making my home back in Arkansas living in a vine-covered cottage on the banks of an eight-thousand acre lake. I started writing on a challenge from my husband in 2006 and discovered having imaginary sex with lots of hunky men was fun.


My first book, Texas Two Step, released in 2012 to outstanding reviews, was a Samhain Publishing best seller. The second book in the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series, Texas Tango, released November 5, 2013, again from Samhain Publishing. In February, 2014, Texas Fandango, a Novella in the Texas Montgomery Series will be released by Samhain Publishing. I am currently at work on book 3 of the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series (Texas Twist).
