Lyn Cote Asks Real history? Or made up history? Which do you prefer?

Real history? Or made up history? Which do you prefer in your reading of historical romance?  

This is the first cover in my “Lone Star Courage” series coming out in June! 

What do you think? I love it. It’s title is LOVING AGAINST ALL ODDS and its subtitle is “A Christian Frontier Texas Romance.” It’s book 1 of 3 and will debut in early June!

And leads to my question: Do you enjoy reading and “learning” about the true history of the West? I love doing historical research. (I have a Master’s degree in American history.) I love reading eye witness accounts of actual events and digging into what really happened, not what Hollywood “dreamed up.” How about you? Do you have any pet peeves about this? I have some! 

Tease: Did you know that from 1821 to 1846 that Texas was

  1. a Spanish colony
  2. part of the Mexican Republic
  3. a sovereign nation 
  4. and finally part of the USA!

I can’t wait to take you on the journey through the lives and loves of the people of Texas—all of them!-Lyn Cote
