CHANNILLO
Hopelessly, Completely, MADLY in Love: Lovin' Lawmen Series Book 1
By Khristina Atkinson

Series Description:

Historical Romance set in my paternal grandfather's home state of Kentucky starting in 1876. 

Lexine (Lexi) Donovan has had a crush on Cooper Grayson since she was thirteen years old. He left town the year before and headed to California, hoping to fulfill his dreams to travel and find more excitement than his small town had to offer. He quickly discovers all he can think about is his beloved Lex. When he returns, she has recently accepted a ring from her best friend, Silas Reilly. 

Silas has been in love with Lexi since he first met her when he was only fourteen years old. He still cannot find the nerve to talk to her father. The man scares him. 

Undaunted, Cooper immediately seeks permission from Lexi’s father, Heath, to court his daughter. Silas is a small-town farm boy with no dreams and no ambition. He is simply not right for a girl as special as Lex.

Faced with an impossible situation of choosing between the two men, Lexi takes the coward’s way out and boards a train to Louisville to visit her grandmother. She returns home several months later with a husband, Luke Weston. 

During a picnic Lexi has planned for Luke’s birthday at her special place by the pond, a shot rings out just as she is delivering the wonderful news he is going to be a father. The deputy, Jesse Dalton, and Sheriff Vaughn believe the incident was only a stray bullet from a hunter, but is one of the two men who claim to love Lexi actually trying to murder her husband? 

HEAT LEVEL RATING: This series contains consummated love scenes that are sensual, but may be considered graphic in their description.

Author Bio For Khristina Atkinson:

The year 1876 was a wonderful time for Lexi Donovan to take a train from her hometown of Bardstown, Kentucky to Louisville and visit her grandmother, Maggie Weston. Maggie's step-grandson, Luke, takes Lexi into town for a couple of fun-filled events. During my research of weather--yes, I try to find out the weather conditions for the time period if possible--I found that a natural disaster almost caused one these events not to take place.  

I also find nerdy facts such as the phase of the moon for when I'm writing about night scenes. I like for my historical novels to be as accurate as possible.

Lexi was originally from Springfield, Kentucky. I found an old map near the time period that showed the railroad going from Springfield to Bardstown, and then on to Louisville. After digging a little deeper, the line didn't run from Bardstown to Springfield until 1888. Even though Lexi's location was moved about seventeen miles southwest, I still managed to work the town of Springfield into the book.

For any of my readers who have ever had a chance to check out my blog (http://khristinaatkinson.wordpress.com), you may take note that I was addicted to General Hospital and MTV as a child, teenager and young adult. They both had Rick Springfield in common. Even though he's much older, I still had a crush on him.
