It’s official, cowboys are HOT…for those of you who have read a western romance, this isn’t news, but for those of you who are new to western romances…the cowboy is THE quintessential American hero. They work from dawn til dark and get up again to do it all over again the next day. There are no days off…the land is a harsh mistress, but they love working their spread…their land, caring for their animals/herd, and if they are lucky enough have a good woman to stand by their side through it all. This is where I come in ready to give one of my favorite hero-types a shot at happily ever after!
Cowboys can be tough as nails when they have to…with a marshmallow center that they only show to a select few. Add a tall rangy frame, broad shoulders, and working-man’s hands and you’ve got my attention. Toss in a few character flaws and you’ve got a kick-butt story. What’s not to love?
Although the third book in my hot cowboy trilogy, JESSE, released in July, I’ve got this idea for a fourth book as well as a whole new series. A long-time fan of TV Westerns and Silver Screen legends, how could I not come up with another idea with role models like John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Clint Walker, James Arness?
While I’m working on the proposal and need a break, I sit on our patio by the new stream and pond that our oldest son, Phil, designed and let me help build. It’s too funny to watch all of the birds come in and stand amid the river rocks, leaning down to sip from the running water…or bathe in the pool by the waterfall. Only our loveable puppy, Jameson, is brave enough to test the limits of my patience by putting his paws in the pond and chewing on the ornamental grasses and water lily that were happily growing there.
Here’s the before…
And the after…

Grab a hold of your Cowboy with both hands...and love him like the devil...he'll thank you for it.
