The Half Breed by Bobbi Smith 💕 Fun Facts, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Historical Romance)


In the midst of the vast, windswept Texas plains stands a ranch wrested from the wilderness with blood, sweat and tears. It is the shining legacy of Thomas McBride to his five living heirs. But along with the fertile acres and herds of cattle, each will inherit a history of scandal, lies and hidden desire that threatens to burn out of control.


Chase knows he has no legitimate claim to the Circle M. After all, his father made it painfully clear he wants nothing to do with his bastard son or the Comanche girl he once took to his bed. But Chase has his own reasons for answering Tom McBride's deathbed summons. He has a job to do as a Texas Ranger, and a woman to protect—a woman whose sweet innocence gives him new faith that love born in the darkest night can face the dawn of all his tomorrows.

The Secret Fires series is the first series I wrote with my friends Constance O’Banyon, Elaine Barbieri and Evelyn Rogers. We came up with the idea of a dying father who demands that his children return to the ranch or be cut out of his will. My book The Half-Breed is the second in the series after Elaine Barbieri’s The Wild One, followed by The Agreement by Constance O’Banyon and The Loner by Evelyn Rogers.
It was the first time I’d ever written with other authors. It was definitely different from writing on my own. Coordinating our storylines was challenging, especially on close deadlines, but we did it. The series turned out great. The Half-Breed is the book that put me on the New York Times bestseller list. That was a high point of my career and a tremendous honor.
I’ve always loved Texas Rangers, and so I decided my hero Chase McBride had to be one. Chase, the illegitimate, half-breed son of Tom McBride, wants nothing to do with his father, but he’s on the trail of an outlaw gang that’s been hiding out in the town near the McBride ranch, so he uses that as his cover to go after the gang. On the way there, Chase and our heroine meet up after she escapes from the raiding party that attacked her family’s ranch. Together, they face a challenging future, but of course, they live happily ever after at the end.
That’s the one thing I’ve always loved the most about romance novels: you’re guaranteed a happy ending. I want to be smiling when I finish writing my story, and I want my readers to be smiling, too!
I hope The Half-Breed leaves you smiling.

Chase was ready for trouble and trouble was exactly what he got when he snared the would-be horse thief around the waist. The thief put up a fierce struggle, but only when Chase heard the scream did he realize he was dealing with a woman!

“Hold still!” he commanded.

Fighting with all her strength, it took Faith a moment to realize he’d spoken English. Only when she was slammed back against the solid, hard-muscled width of his chest and held pinned there, did she become aware that this was no ordinary renegade.

“Damn it woman! I said hold still!” Chase groundout, wondering how this golden-haired wildcat of a woman had ended up in his camp trying to steal his horse in the middle of the night.

He looked down at her as she finally stilled in his arms. Only now did he notice that her blouse was torn and her pale flesh was bared to his gaze. She was filthy and there were bruises evident upon her flesh. They were a silent testimony to abuse she’d suffered. He wondered who she was and what had happened to bring her to him.
