Jennie Marts | Top Five Reasons Cowboy Hockey Players are the best!
May 2, 2018
You had me at hockey playing cowboy…
CAUGHT UP IN A COWBOY is
the story of Rockford James, a hunky cowboy who also happens to play hockey for
the NHL. Yeah, you heard that right… A hockey playing cowboy… Could he be any
The only thing that could make him any better would be if he had two handsome
cowboy brothers who also played hockey… Oh wait… He does.
The Cowboys of
Creedence is a new series featuring the James brothers, who are all as
hot on the ice as off. Feel free to One-Click now, or if you need any
more convincing, here's The Top Five reasons why hockey-playing cowboys are the
- There are hundreds of Pinterest boards dedicated to good
looking men who are cowboys and hockey players. Whether you are looking
for abs or chaps, you'll find your McDreamy hero, times ten!
- They're good with their hands—and they don't mind getting a little
dirty. They have great hand eye coordination, and know how to handle
their stick. Speaking of stickhandling, these guys know how to score. They play
to win and can go all night.
- These guys are bad-a** tough on the outside, but tender on the
inside. They epitomize manliness, whether they are riding a horse or
crashing their opponent into the boards. And you never have to worry about
anyone messing with you.
- They are very driven to get a Hat Trick—which in
hockey terms, means they score three times in one night. And they have great
endurance. Enough said.
- They work hard, value the respect of their peers, and take
their responsibilities seriously. They value family, and honor, and
they love their mamas.
So, there you have it. Don't these guys sound like great heroes?
I grew up on a farm in Kansas so I love cowboys, and I married a hockey player,
so I have several series featuring both kinds of heroes, but I knew I had to do
a mash-up of the two. And I'm so glad I did. I love creating small towns with
fun, quirky characters and building a whole world of books around it, so I set
neighboring ranches, The Triple J and Rivers Gulch, in the small mountain town
of Creedence, Colorado. And of course the ranches have been in a family feud for
years. But the kids never cared. The three James brothers, Rock, Mason, and
Colt, grew up with the Rivers kids, Logan and Quinn, learning to skate on the
same pond they swam in during the summer. Eventually that friendship turned into
more for Rock and Quinn and they fell in love and had great plans for their
future. Until Rock got drafted into the NHL and left her behind.
I had a great time writing all of these three brothers' stories, and I can't
wait for you to meet Rockford. On his way home to the ranch to recuperate from
an injury, he happens upon Quinn, the only woman he's ever loved, and the one he
left behind, as she is riding down the side of the road on a child's bicycle and
wearing a pirate's outfit. After laying on the charm, he convinces her to at
least let them be friends again, and she agrees, on one condition…that he dons
the other pirate outfit….
See what I did there? Not only am I giving you a hockey-playing cowboy to fall
in love with, I also temporarily turn him into a pirate and give you a little
swashbuckling flirty fun! Could this guy get any hotter?
I hope you love CAUGHT UP IN
A COWBOY. I know I loved writing it.
This cowboy plays to win
Rockford James was raised as a tried and true cowboy in a town crazy about
ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped
him up. Now, injuries have permanently benched him. Body and pride wounded, he
returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing
that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn
Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and
heartbroken, she had a rebound one night stand that ended in single motherhood.
Now that Rock's back—and clamoring for a second chance—Quinn will do anything
to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so- tempting cowboy...
