Hot Hits by Martha Hix!

Martha Says, February 6

The big 99-cent sale is over* but we have a winner in the NAME THE MEME Contest. CHERYL BIGGS chose Juicy Couture perfume for her winning entry. Congratulations, Cheryl, and thank you to everyone who entered. More contests are slated for the future.

*LONE STAR LOVING is still on sale. It’s the 2nd in the McLoughlin trilogy.

For now, I’m looking forward to the March 28 release of HIS RIP-ROARIN’ BRIDE, my first historical romantic comedy. Sheriff Wes Alington has his hands full when Lisa-Ann Wilkins arrives in Lubbock, shooting up Scarlet Garter Jenny’s Saloon for the purpose of killing the man who stole her money and killed her dog. I’ll have more to say on the subject at a later date. Right now, I’m trying to get my computers reloaded–one got high-jacked, the other simply crashed–and I’m working on taxes. Worse, Carl and I have just lost our beloved brother-in-law, William Rigney, Sr. It goes without saying I’m a little distracted.

But I will say, HIS RIP-ROARIN’ BRIDE is altogether different from anything I’ve written in the past. Once Rip-Roarin’ is out and you’ve read it, let me know what you think. I’ll warn you, though. Like the first in the #TexanBrides series, Rip-Roarin’ is a long novella and it’s on the sensual side in the hot-sex department. So far, the advance reviews have been nice. I’m especially proud of icon Pamela Morsi’s!

     “5 Stars – The trope of opposites attract…told with a Texas twang. Martha Hix’s new novella, HIS RIP ROARIN’ BRIDE is a delightful short read with tons of western authenticity, some great laughs and a bit of a mystery to boot.
     “Sheriff Wes yearns for a gentle woman of culture and conversation. Lisa-Ann is that sturdiest of Hill Country flowers. With Dad and Granny dead, and Mama in prison, she’s had to make the best of rough life. Now a man has done her wrong, stole her money and killed her dog. She is determined to put him six-feet under. But a sheriff’s got a job to do. And that job means curbing a wild woman with killing streak.
     “The question is, can Wes win her heart after thwarting her revenge? And will he need to completely give up his dignity to do it? The serenade scene alone is worth the read.
     “Delightfully believable characters. I think my readers will really enjoy this.” ~~Pamela Morsi posted at

As for 99-cent sales, guess what! I’m told there will be another!

 2nd in the McLoughlin Trilogy: Lone Star Loving (5 peppers hot!)

Don’t let innocent-looking Charity McLoughlin on the cover fool you. She is one hot heroine. Matter of fact, she can hold her own in the Wild and Crazy West of Today’s Hot Chick Fiction. She drove David Fierce Hawk stark-ravin’ mad.

Martha claims she was about half-way embarrassed to write all that stuff, even in the wild days of 1993 publication, but,”I knew the readers would love it, and they did.” So, here it is again. You can give it a chance for less than the price of a soda or a cup of coffee or even a bottle of water to bathe in all that heat. According to Martha, “You could become one of a small group of 250,000 who can get this for 99¢! Cheap, yes. But definitely not one of those desperate freebie books.”


And while you’re at it…why not…?


The 3rd in the McLoughlin trilogy

The peppers in Mexico were never hotter than when Margaret McLoughlin hired Rafe Delgado to escort her into the Copper Canyon–Hot Chihuahua!

The wildest of the McLoughlin stories!

His Make-Believe Bride’s AMAZON STATUS, as of January 1, 2017

Amazon Best Sellers Rank:

A very good historical novel with likable characters, and some not so likable.

on November 3, 2016
This is a cute story with fun characters. Yes, there is the grouchy aunt, but she has good qualities. And Sam, he’s one hot dude. This is a must read. You will enjoy this book. I know I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars  cute but shallow By Danielle on October 25, 2016

I would like to thank Martha Hix, Lyrical Press, and Kensington Publishing Corporation for allowing me to read this novel in exchange for an honest review. … The plot wasn’t unique, but it was entertaining nonetheless and I enjoyed it. The writing style was great, though it seemed to tell the story in an absentminded way. Overall, it was cute, but a full-length novel could have been so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars By Bookworm32 on October 28, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I Enjoyed His Make-Believe Bride.Linnea told a big lie, but so did Sam. Neither was in a position to back out on their mail-order marriage, and they didn’t want to in this often funny, heartfelt tale of Texas. I did miss Hix’s hot sex, but I guess she had her reasons and I’m not going to count her down for it. She understands how tough life was…just before Texas got great!

This is a sweet romance. … I enjoyed this story of Sam and Linnea. They are both interesting and likable characters. This is more a sweet romance, low on the sexy scenes, if that is what you are looking for. I had not read this author before but I really enjoyed her storytelling.
