Meet the Author



A graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, with a BBA, Peggy Moreland worked on her master's degree in writing at the University of Central Oklahoma. Before penning her first romance, she co-wrote the story of the Edmond, Oklahoma, Post Office massacre for Norman Vincent Peale's Guideposts magazine. This foray into nonfiction was exciting but proved to her that her heart belonged in romantic fiction, where there is always a happy ending.

She published her first romance with Silhouette Books in 1989 and continues to delight readers with stories set in her home state of Texas. Winner of the National Readers' Choice Award, a nominee for Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award, and a two-time finalist for the prestigious RITA® Award, Peggy has had her books appear frequently on the USA TODAY and Waldenbooks bestseller lists.

Married for 30+ years, Peggy is the mother of three children—all grown-up now and living on their own—and the proud owner of a registered quarter horse. Competitions in clover-leaf barrel racing, pole-bending and straightaway barrel racing earned her three silver championship buckles in 1997. A native Texan, Peggy and her family currently live on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country.

When not writing, you can usually find Peggy outside tending the cattle, goats and other critters on their ranch.

Those McCloud gals are at it again, and this time there¿s a new sister to add to the fun and romance. Champion barrel-racer Lacey Cline is determined to find her father, Lucas McCloud, and let him know what a lowdown, dirty dog he undoubtedly was for abandoning her and her mother. Her own mother resented her for the mere fact that she resembled her father, so Lacey grew up believing that she wasn¿t wanted by anyone, and that has left a huge hole in Lacey¿s heart. When she arrives at the Double Cross Heart Ranch, itching for a fight, Lacy not only finds out that Lucas has been dead for several years, but that she has a ready-made family, including three half-sisters. The McCloud gang immediately takes Lacey into their fold, whether she wants to be or not. When her horse accidentally comes up lame, Lacey is forced to stick around the old McCloud homeplace for a while and is given the opportunity to observe her newly-found family up close and personal. As her heart slowly begins to thaw, Lacey discovers that love might not be such a bad thing after all. Travis Cordell came roaring into the easy-going life at the Double Cross Heart Ranch itching for a fight of his own. He was there determined to stop his twin brother, Jack, from making the mistake of his life. When he disrupts a McCloud wedding in progress, Travis soon learns how formidable the McCloud clan can be. He decides to stick around awhile, under the guise of making some repairs to Jack¿s home while he¿s on his honeymoon, and observes the closeness of this unique family. He befriends the overwhelmed Lacey, and soon the two of them discover they have more in common than busting into a family unannounced. They discover a spark of desire between them that could lead to a more permanent relationship. It¿s that McCloud magic at work, once again. For outstanding authenticity in western-influenced, Texas-based romances, one only has to look for the name Peggy Moreland on the cover. Moreland has once again scored a huge hit with her exciting McCloud gals in her newest book, ¿Hard Lovin¿ Man.¿ This is the last edition in Moreland¿s ¿Texas Brides¿ series, and I, for one, hate to see it end. Luckily, Peggy has a whole new crew of handsome cowboys and fascinating women coming up in her new series, ¿Texas Grooms,¿ beginning in July that should prove to be just as fun to get to know.
