About Joanne Kennedy
Joanne Kennedy is the RITA-nominated author of ten contemporary Western romance novels, including Cowboy Trouble, Tall, Dark and Cowboy, and the Cowboys of Decker Ranch series, which began with How to Handle a Cowboy, one of Booklist’s “Best Romances of the Decade.” Joanne lives in a secret mountain hideout on the Wyoming/Colorado border with two dogs, a cat named Earl, and a husband who is an airline pilot, military officer, and volunteer fireman. When not loving a man in uniform, she occupies her obsessive personality with cowboys, quarter horses, hiking in the mountains, and squirrels.
About HOW TO WRANGLE A COWBOY
The last thing this cowboy expected
Inner-city veterinarian Lindsey Ward always loved visiting her grandfather's Wyoming ranch, so it breaks her heart to have to sell it. She'll miss the scent of hay and sagebrush under the wide-open sky, but at least the sale will help fund the clinic she's always dreamed of.
Was to get roped by a city girl
Ruggedly handsome foreman Shane Lockhart and his adorable son aren't making it any easier for Lindsey to focus on what has to be done. It's exhilarating going toe to toe with a rough, tough cowboy whose stubborn idealism matches her own, but it's Shane's tenderness that might tip Lindsey's heart over the fence.

My "Mum" Sadie had gotten out of a bad marriage in the 40's (Dad & Aunt Evelyn were grown & on their own). Mum Sadie got a job at the concession stand of a local theater (Embassy Theater, Reading PA). Pop Leroy was a movie projectionist(Ran the movie & made sure audio & video matched). It took Pop Leroy about 6 years to get "Rebecca" Mum Sadie, preferred "Daisy" or "Rebecca", her middle name to go out with him. They finally married & bickered happily ever after for 50 years.
No luck on my grandparents though, since they were gone
My grandfather was a young preacher and so my grandmother went to his church and fell in love with him , they got married and had a son and a daughter ( my mother ). Grandfather died at an early age when I was a baby so I've just heard these stories about him .I'd love to win your book. Thanks for this chance .
I'm going to have to find out how my grandparents met...both maternal and paternal were fresh from the old country: Germany and Ireland and I've never known.
A great big thank you to everyone who posted "meet-cute" stories! I love hearing true romance stories from the past. Those dances around the time of WWII must have been something! My own parents met at their first "Freshman Mixer" at the University of Maine. My mother picked out my father right away; she was wearing a dress with a lace back, and my dad thought that was, in his words, "soooo sexy!" He got up the courage to talk to her, and they dated all through college. My father was very tall, thin, intellectual and awkward at the time, and says he could never believe this "beautiful creature" seemed to like him - maybe even love him! They were married for 64 years before my dad passed away last April. Their solid, loving marriage is one of the reasons I'm drawn to writing romance!
my mom was on a double date with her friend. My father was on a date with her friend after the date. he started showing up at my mom home.
No i don't know how my parents met or grandparents that i
My parents met just before WWII through my Aunt and they wrote each other all the time. When Daddy came home after being wounded they got engaged and married.
my parents worked in the same company - Mom was selling
Mother went to a poker game with her girlfriend who was to meet her boyfriend at the airplane hanger where he worked. that's where she met my father.
My mom and dad met at a square dance. At first they just danced together once in a while then, they began to date.
My mother lost her father when she was very young and my maternal grandmother was left to care for my mother and three other children. My father's mother died when he was only four and his dad was left with three children to raise including my father. Both parents drifted to wherever they could make a living for their children. So my maternal grandmother and my paternal grandfather ended up in Santo, Texas where they picked cotton to provide for children. At very young ages my mother and father met picking cotton in the cotton fields of Santo and eventually fell in love. It was a love and marriage that lasted their lifetimes.
Oh, my goodness! I never asked my parents how they met, and now it's too late. They were living in the same area, so I guess they met at church or a friend introduced them.
I have no idea how my parents or grandparents met. However, from
I don't know about my grandparents, I think my Mom and Dad met
I think you might know my mom, Carolyn Brown. Anyway, she picked my Daddy out of a picture. He was stationed in Germany. She was a high school sophomore from Tishomingo, OK. She pointed to my Daddy's platoon picture and told her friend (who was dating another member of the platoon) she wanted to write him. So, they did--for 2 years! He sent her engagement ring and the proposal through the mail. She got on a greyhound bus in Oklahoma to go to Pennsylvania to marry a man she'd never met face to face. She'd never even heard his voice. They'll be married 50 years this August.
My parents met at the train station where my father worked in the ticket
