Adrienne deWolfe


Adrienne deWolfe is a National Bestselling Author of action-packed Western Historical Romance novels, where feisty Heroines buck the conventions and true Heroes must be wickedly funny.

When Adrienne’s not writing, she can often be found dragging her sopping-wet feline out of the bathtub (Because Krazy Kat — who thinks she’s a shark — gets her kitty jollies by cannon-balling into the water.  While Adrienne’s soaking in it.)

On other days, Adrienne wages war with her printer. (You think we jest? See her post, “Help! My Printer Has a Poltergeist!”)

Adrienne’s greatest secret is that she’s a gifted intuitive. Someday, she hopes to have a truly USEFUL premonition, so she can pick the winning Lottery ticket. Until that happy day arrives, she hopes you will buy lots of her books (because cat therapists are VERY expensive.)

Fascinated by all things mystical, Adrienne writes a blog about dragons, magic, haunted pizza, the Universal Law of Attraction, and other weirdness she can’t explain at

      • “Spellbinding! Having read all three books in this series, this is far and away my favorite of them! Ms. deWolfe writes is such a way to draw you into the story from page one and keep you eyebrow-deep until the very last word has been read. Jesse and Sera’s story was very beautifully written. Probably my favorite scene was the Cherokee wedding – the detail is so vivid, I felt as thought I was standing there as a witness. And the history of a previous encounter that Jesse and Sera had, wow! I was in tears. I also like the way she incorporates the characters from the two previous books of the series with the storyline in this book. I like being able to keep up with the lives of the other characters. I definitely laughed loudly and cried soundly while reading this book. I HIGHLY recommend her books to anyone who enjoys historical romance.” ~ Hopeless Romantic
      • “Adrienne does not just write bestsellers or award winners, she writes from the heart. Each book captures readers interest, pulls them in, then leaves readers wanting more. If it is written by Adrienne, one book is never enough. The best part of the book for me is the wedding ceremony. I pictured this so clear in my head, it felt like I was there with Jesse and Sera. It was wonderful. I am personally eagerly waiting for (DEVIL IN TEXAS, Book 1 in Lady Law & The Gunslinger.) Once again, thanks for a wonderful read, Adrienne. The bunnies and I give this book 5 carrots.” ~ Suzie Welker, Bunny’s Book Reviews

Bailey wants restitution for the fence posts that some low-down cowpokes burned to steal precious water from her land.

No self-respecting cattleman would be caught dead siding with a sheep rancher, like Bailey—and yet Zack Rawlins, the youngest, elected president of the Cattlemen’s Association, can’t resist this pint-sized wildcat with the big blue eyes. With drought-stricken Bandera County on the brink of range war, Zack faces political suicide if he can’t find a way to mend fences between Bailey and his cattle-ranching neighbors.

But what’s a cowboy to do with an unpredictable woman who refuses to be tamed?

So Wes rides out to the sheriff’s farm—and finds himself looking down a gun barrel aimed by Aurora Sinclair, a spirited, young divorcée with a house full of orphans to protect.

TEXAS OUTLAW (Book 1, Wild Texas Nights)

Fancy Holleday has more nerve than the average cardsharp. No man can resist her smoky voice and violet eyes—and that includes the federal tinstar, Cord Rawlins.

Cord may have tracked her all the way to Texas to recover the U.S. minting plates that she stole, but the Nevada penitentiary is a long ride north, giving her plenty of time to charm, seduce, or just plain outsmart the handsome Texas lawman.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Cord Rawlins is sworn to bring renegades to justice—including the brazen lady train robber who turned the tables on him near Carson City.

Tracking Fancy down is Cord’s job, but resisting her persistent persuasions is a matter of personal honor. With Fancy’s life in his hands, Cord begins to wonder if his clever prisoner is really as shameless as she pretends. Could her wicked smile be hiding a desperate secret—one that can steal his heart?
