Romance

In The Wrong Place...

Roberta didn't mean to hurt anyone. But the night the masked bandits raided her ranch, it was hard to tell friend from foe. She didn't know Nate Dolan was only trying to help when she shot him in the chest. And when he offers to help her catch the culprits, she only feels guiltier. The absolute least she can do is nurse the rugged cowboy back to health...

With All The Right Moves...

Nate has been on the vengeance trail so long, he nearly forgot what a real home looked like. And Roberta is mighty fine incentive to stay put for a while C even if she has a stubborn streak as wide as the great state of Texas. She might be convinced she's healing the wound in his chest, but neither of them known she's also soothing the hurt in his heart.

Re: Heart Of A Texan

There are times that I think I was born into the wrong era because of my love of all things cowboy and I can never get enough. Looking forward to reading your work.
Good luck and happy wrting!
(Tracie Travis 1:35am November 30, 2012)

Sounds like a wonderful book.Look forward to reading it.
(

(
Kent Cook 6:53am November 30, 2012)

I would love to read this book!
(
Bonnie Capuano 9:29am November 30, 2012)

I absolutely agree with Leigh about cowboys. They are free of spirit, hardworking, love of life bodies willing to take a cause they believe in. I truly enjoy reading about cowboys and know I would enjoy reading "Heart of a Texan".
(
Beth Charette 9:38am November 30, 2012)

I also agree with Leigh! I see cowboys as tough and can handle most anything. I cant wait to read this book
(
Julie Parrish 10:03am November 30, 2012)

I totally agree about cowboys. I have mostly watched the old cowboy films and haven't read a lot of books about them, so looking forward to checking this one out.
(
Pam Howell 10:20am November 30, 2012)

I completely agree about cowboys. I have been in love with
cowboys when I discovered them in the 1950's with all the
wonderful television cowboys.
(
Sharon Berger 10:38am November 30, 2012)

Yes, I totally agree about Cowboys! I am a farmers daughter
from Kansas and grew up 65 miles from Dodge City with Matt
Dillon and Gunsmoke. I have been riding horses since age 5.
Now, I am married to my Texas Cowboy for 24 years in Austin,
TX and life is great like the Wild West Days and we would
love to Win your great book: Heart of a Texan. Thanks so
much. Cecilia CECE
(
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 10:40am November 30, 2012)

I totally agree! Funny story...when I first moved to Dallas when I was 10 (I'm not going to say how long ago that was) I literally thought that they had no cars and that everyone rode around on horses with big cowboy hats. Boy was I wrong! You have to get pretty far outside of Dallas to get to find any real cowboys and when you do they are so down to earth and some of the hardest working men and women you will ever meet. They are also some of the friendliest and most caring people you will ever meet!

Thanks so much!
(
Maria Smith 10:43am November 30, 2012)

Yes, I totally agree too. I would love to read your book!
(
Lori Yost 11:02am November 30, 2012)

I've just read a book called Rodeo Rebel about a young woman who is a champion bull rider. She's a great, intelligent, strong hero! So it isn't just the men.
(
Clare O'Beara 12:16pm November 30, 2012)

Because they work hard and look good in those tight jeans.
(
Cynthia St. Germain 12:24pm November 30, 2012)

I wholeheartedly agree!
(
Eva Segerblom 12:26pm November 30, 2012)

I love a good cowboy romance. Cowboys(and their women!)had such a strength of body and mind. You can't help but admire that.
(
Cheryl Castings 12:36pm November 30, 2012)

I'm so glad to see this contest. It's been a while since I've read one of your books and this is a reminder to put your name on my list of authors. I enjoy good cowboy romances.
(
Anna Speed 1:04pm November 30, 2012)

It has been awhile since I read a western romance... love those cowboys and their honor, their care for animals and their manners... have to add more western romances to my TBR pile! Thanks for sharing!
(
Colleen Conklin 1:21pm November 30, 2012)

This book sounds really interesting. I do love cowboys and grew up with the television cowboy. I had forgotten that they never married except maybe the father on Bonanza but his three wives all died. I would like to add "Have Gun Will Travel" to your list. Like you mentioned all cowboys wern't handsome but they still had that cowboy charm.
(
Kathleen Yohanna 1:55pm November 30, 2012)

There is something to Cowboys, a different set of rules, a wildness and beauty to them that can't be locked in - the earth and animals guide them as the blanket of the sky covers them, they can not be caged, they can not deny their spirit.
(
Carla Carlson 2:22pm November 30, 2012)

I grew up watching cowboys on tv. their code of living can't
be beat. Thanks for the cnatest.
(
Mary Hay 2:48pm November 30, 2012)

I have a special place in my heart for cowboys. There is an amazing and special thing about them!
(
Wendy Hulbert 3:32pm November 30, 2012)

Cowboys seem to be uniquely American---and independent and honorable---all things that we look up to---at least in stories.
(
Sue Farrell 3:53pm November 30, 2012)

Really enjoyed reading your blog on Cowboys. My husband makes sure I'm exposed to cowboys on T.V. 24/7. Book sounds great.
(
Sheila True 4:00pm November 30, 2012)

I have always loved the cowboy since I was a child. I playewd cowboys and indians and always swore I was going to have a horse ranch when I grew up or was going to work on a ranch. Neitrher happened but I loved all of the westerns you mentioned and many more. John Wayne was my hero. As well as Jimmy Stewart and Glen Ford and many more. Great topic. Thanks for sharing. I read a lot of books about the cowboys and Montana.
(
Diana Smith 4:11pm November 30, 2012)

I do like that the cowboy fights for what is right.
(
Maureen Emmons 4:48pm November 30, 2012)

I think that cowboys have the reputation of being strong and on the side of
right. We often see them as all American and ready to defend a woman's
honor.
(
Ann Sheiring 5:39pm November 30, 2012)

Sounds like the type of book I love to read, I'd love to win it.
(
Wilma Frana 5:51pm November 30, 2012)

I enjoy reading about cowboys. They are a breed unto themselves: hard working and hard playing.
(
Robin McKay 6:08pm November 30, 2012)

I agree with you. Most cowboys are honourable and will ride in to save the day, right the wrongs and seeing that justice is done. It also doesn't hurt that they have great bodies (and look great in tight jeans) from working hard all day. :-)
(
Lisa White 6:26pm November 30, 2012)

FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY LOVE TO WIN IT.
(
Shelly Caggiano 6:52pm November 30, 2012)

I like cowboy stories because even if it's set in present day, there is an old code of honor with cowboys of a gone by era.
(
MaryAnne Banks 7:11pm November 30, 2012)

I think that cowboys are the best.
(
Kellie Demarsh 7:16pm November 30, 2012)

I enjoy reading about cowboys.
(
Kathy Fowler 7:26pm November 30, 2012)

I agree with Leigh!
(
Theresa Norris 7:42pm November 30, 2012)

I have never met a real cowboy. The only way I could met them are through cowboy movies and books. They have that code of honor that really make them so attractive.
(
Kai Wong 7:56pm November 30, 2012)

I enjoyed reading about cowboys, they are hard-working and when they day there gonna do it the job gets done,and they honor the cowboy code-I know a few cowboys and all is true about them..your book sounds good-my cowboy friend reads all your books, and I've gotten hooked, even though I like the series by Reid Rosenthal-Threads West American Saga and Maps of Fate..alot of history and romance/like to win your book!
(
Carole Fiore 7:59pm November 30, 2012)

I agree with Lee that the truth of the cowboy life is not as
we like to read about in our romance novels about them - we'd
rather have the romantisized version.
(
Diane Sallans 8:19pm November 30, 2012)

I saw True Grit as an Advanced Sneak Preview and was amazed at how good cowboys and the wild west looked. Cowboys are usually hard workers who have long days working up a sweat and trying to manage making a ranch or farm work out.
(
Alyson Widen 8:37pm November 30, 2012)

I love cowboys, I grew up watching westerns. Kids nowadays don't know what they're missing.
(
Rita Wray 8:37pm November 30, 2012)

I'd love to win this book, sounds great.
(
Wilma Frana 8:52pm November 30, 2012)

Although there are too many Authors to mention, I think that Leigh has his History down pat, as far as the History of the Cowboy goes!! As long as there are horses and cattle roaming this earth, you will see a Cowboy in the vicinity. I am chomping at the bit to read this book!!! (no pun intended) Since you know your History the way you do, I know I'm in for one heck of a ride!! Somehow, it sounds like I'm coming up with all of these puns, but I really do want to read your book, and I even feel that I'd be able to pass it on to my Husband to read when I get done, since he loves Westerns!! Great cover, great reviews. What more could I ask for??
(
Peggy Roberson 10:17pm November 30, 2012)

What woman would not be charmed by a handsome cow poke in tight jeans riding into town on a white charger? It wouuld be me....dream, dream, dream.
Sounds like a great and sexy read.
Pat Pascale
(
Patricia (Pat) Pascale 10:43pm November 30, 2012)

I love horses, especially Appaloosas. But I have never met a cowboy. But I certainly admire them...and I always enjoy a romance novel that includes a cowboy.
(
Shari Santella 11:19pm November 30, 2012)

I love to read stories about cowboys. Would love to win your book.
(
Linda Hall 11:59pm November 30, 2012)

I really enjoyed your post on cowboy's! Thanks so much for a chance to win your book, which sounds great!
(
Christine Mead 5:43am December 1, 2012)

THE SEARCHERS in my favorite John Wayne movie & LONESOME DOVE
is a favorite book of mine.

For me the cowboy is all heart, wrapped in a tough exterior.
(
Mary Preston 7:05am December 1, 2012)

Great post on cowboys. I grew up in the 50's and 60's, so there were plenty of cowboys to watch on TV, and I couldn't get enough of them. I always wondered why none of the sons on Bonanza married, and now I know. Looking forward to reading your book.
(
Cathy Phillips 2:09pm December 1, 2012)

any book on cowboys, is a good read!!!!
(
Barbara Studer 10:09pm December 1, 2012)

I agree with Leigh I cant wait to read your book it sounds great
(
Danielle McDonald 8:36am December 2, 2012)

Liked your review of this book. Sounds like a great book. Looking forward to reading. Thank you
(
Diane Castiglione 12:32pm December 2, 2012)

From a child going to the movies every Sat, the cowboy movies and serials were the best to keep me coming back weekly and it's as bad now reading about them. It doesn't matter it the books are historical or not, a good cowboy book is always welcome
