Ride A Pale Horse

Blue RoanNo, no Biblical references to Revelations, or the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. That might become the “working title” of Book 4 and it might be because there’s a spectacular blue roan on the RTR, Round Top Ranch, in Texas, mentioned in Book 1, Fool Me Once, and in Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows.

The RTR was one of Charles Westlake’s early investments and the Westlake Group makes frequent trips to Texas for oversight until ranch manager, Teodor (“Teddy”) Sauseda, no longer needs any. The ranch is still a favorite destination for Charles’ son, Chip Westlake, and his partner, Luc Deschaines.

The RTR breeds Black Angus cattle and world-class Quarter Horses. On a visit to the ranch in Book 2, main character, Ronnie Chandler Deschaines, rides a breathtaking blue roan, Silver Dollar, who was given to Teodor’s eldest daughter, Elena, at foaling. Teodor explains to Ronnie that Silver Dollar was bred and born on the ranch, and she will never be sold or leave the property.

That idea has become part of the plot for Book 4. If this beautiful pale horse can’t be sold, can she be given away? If she can’t leave the ranch, does her new owner become a resident of the RTR?

Once Book 3, Signs of Life, was completed, concepts came thick and fast for the next, as the Riverwood series continues.
