Mary J. McCoy-Dressel


New Release: Of the Cowboy's Own Accord Book #3 in the Double Dutch Ranch Series. Available Now.

Other writers have always been my inspiration. Many romance and women's fiction authors inspire me to keep my eyes on my goal.

My writing consists of sensual contemporary western romance with strong family ties, an occasional paranormal romance, and upcoming romantic fiction outside of the western genre. In my more dramatic reads, the characters don't always have an easy time getting what they want, but their reward is sexy and sweet.

In the Double Dutch Ranch Series Books, you'll find Cowboy Boss and his Destiny to be sensual and romantic with less conflict and drama--a lighter side to romance.

Books #1.5, #2, and #3 have a more emotional and compelling storyline. If you're looking for a little more drama than Cowboy Boss and his Destiny, begin with Tristan's Destiny #1.5 or Heartbreak's Reward, Bk #2. Keep in mind, Book 1.5 contains spoilers for Cowboy Boss.

For information on other works in progress, please visit me online at my website or blog. Connecting with readers and friends is important to me.
