#NewRelease -- The Dundee Saga, Book 2, Casa Grande by Kit Prate -- #Giveaway!

Be sure and leave Kit Prate a comment to be entered in the giveaway.


Cooper Dundee is in trouble. His stagecoach line is about to go under—and he stands to lose everything.  The long-standing rivalry between Coop and his older half-brother, Jonathan, has been simmering since childhood. Now that Jonathan has lost his share of the business on the turn of a card, his resentment is at a boiling point.

But Jonathan isn’t the only one who wants to see Cooper go down. An old nemesis from the past insinuates himself into Cooper’s life—and into his business—with deadly plans of his own.

When Coop is nearly killed in a suspicious stagecoach accident, he realizes he’s been set up. The lynch mob is just outside the door—if he survives his terrible injuries.  With his pregnant wife, Regan, and her young son, Michael, in his life, Cooper’s got too much to live for to give up now. But how can he beat the odds stacked against him? In a desperate bid to save everything dear to him, he faces a deadly showdown with a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving. Either way, it will all end at the place he was born—Casa Grande… 


It was those long, grueling hours of hard labor that had melted the flesh from him. At first, his soft hands had bled, and the white flesh on his back had burned and blistered. And then, as the days stretched into weeks and the weeks into months, his entire body hardened. After the first year, he could stare at his own reflection and wonder about the face that stared back.
He had changed so much, including adding a beard, that even Cooper Dundee did not recognize him. He laughed. Only moments before, he had shared a drink with the man whose testimony had sent him to prison—and shared a drink with the man’s attorney, Estevan Foley—and neither one had known him!
Finished with his chores, he stood up, smearing yet another glob of thick grease on the large wheel hub. It was an effective cover for a lug nut he had loosened. It was going to work, he thought smugly. This time, after all the waiting, all the careful planning, it was going to work.

And before the day was over, Cooper Dundee would be dead.

  1. Well, I thought Tucson was action packed (and it was!) but I think it's a toss-up as to whether that book or this one has more action in it. I was on the edge of my seat with both of these, and I am excitedly waiting for book 3! Kit, you had me surprised at every turn, and wondering what in the world could happen next? Loved both of these books, and I'm really wondering what you've got in store for us in book 3. Something scathingly brilliant, knowing you!

    Great job on these stories. Loved them!

    1. Kind of more ditzy than usual (I heard that laugh, Cheryl), thanks to the miracle of modern dental science. (Incredible drugs.) So it was nice to wake up to this; a great way to start the day. (A five in the afternoon.) Again, thanks to you and Livia and everyone else involved for all your hard work. You ladies are absolutely wonderful!

  2. I cannot help but know this series will flourish under the tutelage of Cheryl and Livia. Congratulations! Keep up the wonderful work of writing these kinds of stories.

    1. I appreciate all the kind words, Celia. It's good to back in the fold and in the company of such terrific people.

  3. Kit, looks like Coop can't catch a break. But I'm certain things will work out some how. I wish you great success and happiness.

  4. Hi, Sarah! Sometimes, I think Coop was born under a particularly dark star. However, with Reagan at his side, and the kind of family he's always longed for, I think things are beginning to look up. Book III will be a fast forward to Michael and Nina's adventures in life. I mean, what could be easier for Coop and Reagan than two hormone primed teenagers on their way to being grown up?

  5. Sounds like a great read! I love western historicals (guess that's why I write them! LOL). Best of luck with The Dundee Saga and Casa Grande!

  6. Oh my, such wonderful characters and great suspense you have built into this story. Wishing you the very best on this and the next book. Doris McCraw

  7. Wish you the best, Kit. Looks like a great story and I look forward to reading it.
