Coming Soon: Blaze! (A New Adult Western Series)

J.D. and Kate Blaze are two of the deadliest gunfighters the Old West has ever seen. They also happen to be husband and wife, as passionate in their love for each other as they are in their quest for justice on the violent frontier!

BLAZE! is the first novel in a thrill-packed, all-new Adult Western series created by bestselling action/adventure author Stephen Mertz. J.D. and Kate find themselves facing a deadly ambush by Apaches, then they're hired to track down a gang of ruthless outlaws led by the beautiful, savage bandit queen Rosa Diablo. It's gun-swift excitement all the way in this gritty tale from Stephen Mertz.

Husband and wife gunfighters Kate and J.D. Blaze are hired to track down a gang of rustlers, but what they don't know is that they're going to find themselves in the middle of a three-cornered war, playing each side against the others. If they're lucky they'll collect three payoffs instead of one...but will those payoffs be in gold—or hot lead?! 

Legendary Western author Robert J. Randisi, creator of The Gunsmith, joins the Blaze! team with this fast-action novel of treachery, revenge, passion, and blistering gunplay. From the finest hotels in Denver to a savage showdown in a ghost town, The Deadly Guns is adventure all the way!

J.D. and Kate Blaze, the Old West's only pair of husband-and-wife gunfighters, just want to enjoy their vacation in a beautiful Colorado valley, calling it the honeymoon they never had. But a runaway buggy draws them into a deadly vendetta that threatens the life of one of J.D.'s old friends. Belle Braeden, once a San Francisco soiled dove, is now the wife of one of Colorado's richest ranchers, a fact that the man's spoiled children don't appreciate. When murder strikes, Kate and J.D. have to track down a killer and fight for their own lives against a gang of deadly bushwhackers! 

Wayne D. Dundee, one of today's bestselling and most acclaimed Western authors, spins a lightning-fast, action-packed yarn in BITTER VALLEY, the third book in the all-new BLAZE! series. Trouble always seems to follow J.D. and Kate Blaze, and they answer with hot lead!

(I'm editing and publishing these books, and I can tell you, if you're a fan of The Gunsmith, Longarm, The Trailsman, and Slocum, you're going to want to read these! The first three books will be available as e-books on January 5, but you can pre-order them now. Trade paperback editions should be available about the same time. After that there'll be a new BLAZE! novel every two months, written by some of the top names in the business. If you like plenty of action, be sure to check out BLAZE!)

Husband and wife, eh? Reminds me of something or other.

This looks promising and I wish you all the best of luck!

By the way, great minds and all latest Steve Dane story, which I just finished, features a minor character named John Blaze, who is a thief/occasional good guy. Perhaps he's J.D. and Kate's great-grandson and we've all been telepathically connected?

That sounds reasonable to me, Brian.

I'm looking forward to these. Adult westerns done right, I bet!

Good writers but awful covers. The models look they belong in a musical number in some Branson Mo. production.
