Talk Cowboy to Me by Carolyn Brown

As I start this guest post, I’m remembering the first time I was invited to the Casablanca Author’s Blog back in 2009. The book was Lucky in Love and I was so very excited to have my first cowboy romance on the market. To be invited to the Casablanca Blog was icing on the top of the pretty cupcake.

Now it’s eight years and 23 cowboy books later with Sourcebooks. Add in two women’s fiction books and it brings the number up to 25. With Talk Cowboy to Me I went back to that first book, Lucky in Love, and talked to another Luckadeau cousin, Remington. He’d been left with the responsibility of raising two nephews and he was looking at a particular ranch in north central Texas, not far from Nocona. Then I visited with one of those sassy O’Donnell women, Adele, who was recently divorced, had two small daughters to raise on her own and just happened to be looking at the same ranch. Oh, I could see the sparks were going to fly for sure, the minute I put the two of them at the table with the ranch owner. And believe me they did.

This is my last contracted book with Sourcebooks so it seemed fitting to throw a Luckadeau from the first series together with an O’Donnell, who had some sassy ladies and sexy cowboys in both the Spikes & Spurs Series as well as the Burnt Boot Series. It was sure a fun and exciting book to write and I hope all my readers love revisiting the characters in the previous series.

Talk Cowboy To Me has amazing reviews:

"A sweet story about building family out of what life hands you. " – Kirkus

“A light-hearted plot filled with engaging storytelling and amusing, colorful, down-to-earth characters make Brown’s latest stand out. A strong, gutsy, stubborn heroine in Adele and an equally stubborn yet easy-going cowboy in Remington will appeal to readers. The chemistry and tension between them is both sweet and passionate. This sexy, heartwarming Texas romance is sure to delight Brown fans everywhere.” —RT Reviews

The Blurb: 

Carolyn Brown brings her signature southern quirkiness to this original tale of Texas love.

One cowboy. One cowgirl. One ranch.
Who will win the Double Deuce by the Fourth of July?

Adele O'Donnell knew that Double Deuce Ranch had to be hers the second she walked onto the property. Freshly divorced, she sees it as the perfect spot for her and the kids to start a new life. Remington Luckadeau was always a carefree playboy...until his suddenly orphaned nephews became his responsibility. The Double Deuce Ranch would be the perfect place to raise two boys. But some fiery woman is fighting him for it, and Remington is not sharing-no matter how the sparks fly when he and Adele are together.

Carolyn Brown’s Bio:

She’s won the National Reader’s Choice Award three times, the Bookseller’s Best Award and was awarded the prestigious Montlake Diamond Award for selling over a million books with that publisher.  Talk Cowboy to Me is her 83rd published book. Among them are romantic women’s fiction, historical, contemporary, cowboys and country music mass market paperbacks.
