A Texas State of Mind by Ann DeFee



Police Chief Lolly LaTullipe’s professional life runs amuck when dead drug dealers start floating up on the beach. Port Serenity, Texas is known for bird watchers and bikini clad co-eds–not murder and mayhem. Lolly’s situation becomes even more complicated when a sexy undercover narcotics cop shows up eliciting thoughts of rumpled sheets and hot summer nights. This single mom of two is afraid she’s in way over her head.

Christian Delacroix is jaded from years in drug enforcement and the appealing police chief has him reassessing his priorities and future. Is he ready for this small town with its cast of eccentric characters. And is he prepared for Lolly LaTulippe with her white-picket-fence life complete with a close-knit family and circle of friends? Not to mention her big shaggy dog and all the complications of life with a teenager.

Are diapers, PTA meetings and football games in this cop’s future?

    “A Texas State of Mind is sexy, it’s sassy, it’s full of action and outrageous characters. “
New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

Imagine a job where you can have conversations with imaginary friends while creating castles in the sky—not to mention, always having a happy ending. That's my life as a feel-good author. I infuse humor into my stories of romance, relationships and quirky characters. I’ve published eleven novels and one novella with various Harlequin imprints—HQ American, Everlasting and Carina. My debut book, A Texas State of Mind was a double finalist in the national Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA contest and a Romantic Times nominee for Best First Series Book. In addition, Summer After Summer (2007) won the national Book Buyers’ Best Long Contemporary award.

Using my pseudonym, Annaliese Darr I'm venturing into the genre of Magical Realism. Believe is my first visit to that mystical place where the surreal becomes reality. Believe won the Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal for Fiction in Magic/Wizardry and the Chanticleer Somerset Book Award for Women's Fiction. Lucy's Got a Lot of 'Splaining to Do (Ann DeFee) was also a Chanticleer short list finalist in Humor. Ann DeFee is an award winning author who infuses humor into her stories of romance, small town quirkiness and family relationships. So if you're in the mood for a fun, fast-paced trip to Texas with sexy cowboy/cops and sassy heroines, check out Beyond Texas and A Hot Time In Texas.

I live in Williamsburg, VA—the epicenter of American history.
